Tough Metaphor Challenge idea metaphor deja vu eye logo icon

I recently worked on a project with a number of tricky, tough ideas to be expressed in icons. Funny how it seems impossible at first, but once you realize you just have to do it - you do it.

So that gave me an idea I want to try on Dribbble with you guys, and see we can have some fun with it, and also work out our creative muscle.

--------------

So here's the challenge.

This is my metaphor for Déjà Vu icon.

1. You can leave a comment to this post and I'll give you a tough (in my opinion) metaphor to develop.

2. You make a rebound of this post with the icon you create based on that metaphor.

3. Whoever comments you gets a tough metaphor from you, and they do a rebound of your post with their icon.

4. And it goes on till we're done playing.

--------------

Some basic rules:

1. No text preferably. I feel like using text in icons is sort of an easy way out.
2. Keep it simple. It's supposed to be an icon, not a concept illustration.
3. Keep it civil, keep it smart.
4. I think feel free to share your variation of the same metaphor in the comments, if you want to.

Let's get that brain working!
