    Summary

    When Jon asked Richie for such a thing, he thought he was kidding, which was something, as he never joked around. Then he realized he was serious, and Richie became afraid of himself.

    Summary

    Early 90s to early 2000s. Jon has set some standards, like he does with everything, and that's fine. It's understandable. It's enough. Over time, he seems to change his mind and shows little signs of protest. He's breaking his own rules. But he always keeps coming back. Never leaves when it is just the two of them. But Richie will take the blame.

    Summary

    The early years, before the debut, when they were mostly broke and had to resort to sharing things: food, money, rooms. This includes sometimes having all five make funny sleeping arrangements in one hotel room with one bed.

    Summary

    They had messaged a few times after Richie left, and while they were not in any way resentful or hateful, not that Jon knew of any way, their text messages were short and far from friendly. At first, Jon refused to be friendly with him, especially after that reckless leave. Then once he got over the anger, he wanted nothing more than to at least hug him again. He wanted to message, but he was too afraid to.

    This pushed him to finally message him with lots of emotion, but with very few words. Once Richie recieved the messages, wherever he was right now, Jon was sure he understood the feeling entirely.

    Summary

    Jon knew that it was his fault that Richie left. No one was more of an insufferable bastard than Jon Bon Jovi when he was working. He had left the band two other times before, but not like this. Not this abruptly, not this indirectly. Jon's memory is not very good, not only because he's getting older, but because he intentionally tried to block a lot of the past out. Now, he looks back on all that he can remember, looking back on his history with a guitarist of thirty years. He doesn't remember when and how they got close, but he believes it started with his stage fright.

    Summary

    Jon. Richie. Pain. Fame. It's during The Tour From Hell and the boys have trouble coming to terms with their feelings. Among other shit.
    Those of you who are regulars of the Jovi Boards probably know it. I'm just putting all my old stuff up here so I won't loose it. ; )

    Summary

    They go to bow again, and Jon reaches for Richie, one more time (they have to do this, he knows, have to pretend, have to make it look like everything's OK), and Richie presses against his side, too close and too warm.
     

    (Richie re-joins the band for the South American leg of the tour. Maybe it's too soon).

    Summary

    “He knows everything, David,” Jon repeats, his voice low and grave, and I sit on the floor, staring up at him and hyperventilating as my mind fights to comprehend what he’s telling me.

    Summary

    Jon era seduto al pianoforte e si stava incazzando non poco: quel dannato 'intro' non lo convinceva e, per di più, continuava a steccare. Scosse le mani per sciogliere i muscoli e le falangi, poi se le passò nei capelli – ora corti – e poi ancora sui pantaloni.

     

    Richie trova un modo particolare per 'ispirare' Jon.
