This is absolutely riveting.
Not only are you presenting your characters in an emotionally charged, heavy-handed--meaning 'harsh,' 'psychologically twisted yet still accurate' and 'smack-you-in-the-face-blunt' rather than clumsy--style, but you're focusing, once again, on... obsession, which just-so-happens to be my favorite literary emotion (it was bumped up to first after an unfortunate run-in with this nasty piece about sadness and guilt that was so maudlin I almost hurled). At this point, it seems that you are dealing with characters who are deluding themselves by attempting to believe that they are not deluded without even realizing that they are doing so, which is just so... fun to read.
The entire concept is, to use Deathspector's word, powerful. (The problem with being able to read his mind is that if he posts first, he ends up looking better than me xD) I want to read moar.
