    Summary

    Edge can draw and has a photographic memory, sort of. This is set in 1997, and according to my fic's timeline, it has been approximately six years since he and Bono fell in love. While Edge has become a little more realistic about Bono, he is still obsessed. Each chapter is his inner monologue as he draws.

    The majority of this story was originally written in 2002. I'm going to finish it here.

    Summary

    Welcome to Closer, the predictably titled sequel to Close. If you did not read that story, the following seventeen words should bring you up to speed, Cliff's Notes-style:

    *In Close, Bono took Edge to New York, where they viewed some photos of Bono and kissed.*

    This story takes place in New York, March 1992, during the filming of "One.". The formatting weirdness will continue, only this time it is Bono's turn, and he will be experiencing a series of flashbacks.

    Sentences in quotes = Bono or Edge is speaking (90% of the time)
    Sentences without quotes = Bono's thoughts
    Sentences in parentheses = the voice of Edge inside Bono's mind...

    This story is not true and I do not own Bono and Edge. I merely rent them. I love you for reading this.

    Summary

    Have you ever been in love with someone so deeply that he begins to invade your private thoughts? As you get on with your busy day, do you find yourself mentally conversing with your personal incarnation of this man, who acts like a tiny devil/angel sitting on your shoulder, advising you? Do you hear him laugh, and does he tell you his secrets? Because this is happening to Edge.

    This was originally written in 2002, rescued by Choose2Live, and lightly edited by me in 2016. (Mainly stuff where Bono babbles about art history.) This is part one of three connected stories of mine. Heck, they're all connected. The original version of Close had twelve chapters, but I'm going to post them here in four big chunks. Thanks to everyone who has read this series over the past 14 years and told me it meant something to them. <3

    Summary

    Set in Berlin, November 1990, during the Achtung Baby recording sessions. You get the sense that during this time Edge and Bono were very close, with each providing the other with comfort to deal with pressures such as the breaking down of Edge’s marriage and the stress and tension from in the studio. I’ve tried to show that in their relationship here, where they’ve tried to create their own world to escape temporarily from their troubles…perhaps in reality there was slightly less screwing but u catch my drift ;)
