Has there been adequate discussion about how nerdy I am about that thing I am nerdy about? I think not.
I was pretty much the last person on the face of the planet to see Tangled
despite being ridiculously excited about it ever since I first heard Glen Keane was being put in charge of his own Disney movie (waaaaaay back in college!). After finally seeing it just last week (I KNOW, I SUCK AT NERDING), I have pretty much been consumed with the premise of Boomer being utterly infatuated with this movie and making Him take him to see it like eleven times. And Him would protest, except, uh, general shiny prettiness, MUSICAL HELLO, and Mother-fucking Gothel. (Yes, that was deliberate! Feel free to point it out!)
So OF COURSE Him totally supports Boomer's love of this musical, much to Brick's and Mojo's chagrin. (LJ, have we discussed how enormously amused I am by the idea of Him moving himself and the Boys in with Mojo so they can play the whole Perfect Nuclear Family game?) Because Boomer and Him are family bonding
over this Disney Princess
movie, you understand, and so they are frequenting the theater and having talks at the dinner table about how Rapunzel holds up to Disney's previous princesses and Brick and Mojo want to stab things because WHY and Butch is just like Is she hot yes or no it's a simple question and then there's this sidetrack while Him and Boomer try to explain Disney princesses are not SUPPOSED to be hot they are supposed to be CUTE because those are the best kind and Butch just goes like So no and then Him and Boomer are like ARE YOU EVEN PAYING ATTENTION BUTCH SERIOUSLY WE'RE NOT USING BIG WORDS HERE
Also? The best part? THEY SING AT HOME. Like, ALL THE TIME. They have the soundtrack on endless repeat blasting in the observatory and Brick is like MOJO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS and Mojo says YOU WILL REFER TO ME AS YOUR FATHER AND I CAN'T
BECAUSE OTHER DAD IS CHANNELING THIS FROM HELLSPACE OR SOMETHING, THIS IS BEYOND THE REALM OF SCIENCE!
Boomer sings all Rapunzel's parts and Him sings all Mother Gothel's parts. By the way.
And they pull Brick into it when they need someone with Rapunzel-length hair to REALLY make it work. And Brick hates everything. But especially Boomer and Daddy Him.( Cut for potential spoilers for Tangled songs! I have honestly worked out how these play out in their household, seriously. )
In summary: Boomer = Rapunzel, Him = Mother Gothel, Brick = Rapunzel (hair stand-in).
HEY DID YOU MISS MY "I'M-ON-A-SPECIAL-BRAND-OF-CRAZY-CRACK" POSTS OR WHAT GUYS
Seriously for a second. I am, uh, embarrassed to admit this, but I have lost track of who I owe/have promised fic to. I think I recall four for sure...? Anyway my point is, if I have at any point said to you HEY WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY or HEY YOU SHOULD REQUEST SOMETHING OF ME, then please, please remind me! I think... well I'm not going to list names here. Just pm me, please. And remind me what you requested! I just realized - that number is at least six, not four. God my brain, why.
