A/N: The Gibson ES-295 is a very beautiful guitar used as a muse for this scene - Google it. It was a guitar I don't believe he ever used on anything of note, you'll see why that's perfect ;)  And Rudy's Music Stop is a real store in NYC.  I took a bit of a leap with Edge getting the guitar in NYC but it would have been sometime around the JT/R&H era.

***********************************

“Will you come with me to pick up a guitar?” Edge asked, smiling at me with a boyish grin.  “I’d take Bono, but …”
 
I shook my head, “Edge, I feel so awkward in a guitar shop, do I have to?”
 
I felt odd going into musician places with musicians.  It was like dragging a man into a lingerie store.  I thought the guitars were beautiful, but I didn’t know the first thing about them.  What good was I when all I had to offer was “it looks really nice, it’s a lovely colour!”  Mind you, the only time I’d been in a guitar shop was with Bono, so it might be a bit more interesting going with Edge.

**********************

These were dark days.

Berlin felt like an apocalyptic wasteland – cold and calculating, dark and dreary… so full of doom which enveloped the recording of the new album that I wasn’t sure if I’d make it out in one piece.  Or with anything left to give, for that matter.

Whose idea was it to come here again?

I often found myself retreating, alone, to a small dive bar on a quiet and lonely back street a few blocks away from the studio.  It was just small enough and just out of the way enough that no one knew my name, real or otherwise.

I found myself there again today.  A nod to the barman and in front of me I quickly find the usual - cheap Irish whiskey, neat, of course.  This was no place for rock star pretence.  Not here.  Which is why I come.

A/N: My very first U2 fanfic. A bit AU with no Ali in the scene but trying to stay true to fact where possible. Set during ZooTV/AB era during the breakup of Edge's marriage. This is a non-slash fic but it's not going to be a Mary-Sue, it will be full of angst and darkness I'm hoping...

**********
Sometimes, Bono was insufferable.

“Why not?” he pleaded as he blew smoke out of the side of his upturned mouth, just over my shoulder into the wall behind me.

“Because I’ve been running on 2 hours of sleep every day for a week. I need to relax tonight, Bono. I can’t do this every night..."

He stepped back and stared so deeply into me I could feel it in the back of my head.

I'm in need of a beta! I have a rough draft to a story that I think I want to finish (it could end where it is or where I originally planned it which means I need to write more)

Anyway I need someone to beta it for me. Any volunteers?
