I apologise for the awful pun in the subject title, but I don't know what came over me then. As the actress said to the bishop DEAR GOD SOMEONE SHUT ME UP. But yes, I have finished my 50 sentences for [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence, written about the relationship between The Edge and Adam Clayton. I would honestly like some feedback from these even if you're not aware of the fandom. Generally, if you're comfortable with RPS/bandom, you'll be cool with these.

Ring
Adam can’t help but notice the gold band around Edge’s finger; the way that his eyes light up when he talks about Morleigh.

Hero
They both idolise and adore the man who enthrals the audience at every show, but they can’t have him – who needs Bono when Adam and Edge can have each other?

Memory
He would often think back to the day in Larry’s kitchen when their gazes first met and Adam asked the room what this ‘band’, for want of a better word, should call themselves.

Box
Adam couldn’t play at any venue where he couldn’t fit all of his amps on to the stage – this one, a dive in Dublin, was the worst offender.

Run
“No matter how bad the situation gets at home,” Adam says with tears in his eyes, “you can’t run away from the band; you can’t run away from me.”

Hurricane
Adam would always remain an oasis of calm, even through the most horrific and destructive of storms.

Wings
Adam knew that Edge was an angel, but in the past few months, he’d proved himself right yet again.

Cold
Adam and Edge huddled together for warmth in the freezing Slane Castle bedroom – but they weren’t exactly complaining about it.

Red
When Edge told Adam that he looked amazing on the first night of Zoo TV, he went a rather fetching shade of scarlet.

Drink
A shared bottle of champagne after the show was a regular treat for the two of them, but sadly, someone had nicked it from the rider that evening.

Midnight

No matter how much Adam begged him, Edge wouldn’t have a midnight feast with him.

Temptation

There was no way that Edge could turn Adam down tonight – he was just too good at this seduction thing.

View
With the lights of New York sparkling beneath him and Adam sleeping contentedly in the adjacent seat, Edge realised how lucky he really was.

Music
Lifeblood, love, common ground, the art they cannot live without.

Silk
“Are you sure these sheets aren’t too opulent?”

Cover
Edge will always prefer their version of ‘Helter Skelter’ to the original, no matter how terrible that makes him feel.

Promise
“All right, we’ll keep the boom-chas.”

Dream
Adam knew he shouldn’t have had that cheese so late in the evening – nevertheless, ‘the one with the giant spiders’ was entertaining, if slightly disturbing.

Candle
He thought it lent a certain ambience to the room, but Edge insisted that it smelled like the inside of a minicab.

Talent
At a certain moment in every show, Adam would look over at Edge as he concentrates on the opening riff to ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’, knowing that he has many more talents that only Adam knows about.

Silence
Their lives were eerie without noise, but there was a certain comfort that came with the sight of a calm, sleeping Edge.

Journey
Looking at a picture of Edge as an awkward eighteen-year-old, Adam realised just how far they’d come since then.

Fire
Adam knows who he would save from a burning building.

Strength

Internally and externally, Adam knew that Edge would always be stronger than him; always be there to keep him safe.

Mask
What is he hiding under that cool, organised exterior – if anything?

Ice
In his darker moments, Edge felt like his heart could melt or shatter incredibly easily.

Fall
If anyone took Adam away, Edge thinks, who would be there to catch Edge if he fell? 

Forgotten
Edge had the ability to forgive and forget where Adam was concerned; even his most embarrassing moments could be erased from his memory.

Dance
If there was one thing that Adam had learned that year, it was that he could not, under any circumstances, dance in a suit.

Body
Like a fine wine, Edge observed, Adam definitely improved with age.

Sacred
Religion was the only thing that Edge couldn’t discuss with the normally open-minded Adam.

Farewells
Even after they had said goodbye and promised to call each other, a weekend away still felt like an eternity.

World
Edge’s camera documents every step of the tour, while Adam sticks drawing pins into a map, marking the places they’d been together.

Formal
“I don’t care how good you say it will look on me, I’m not going to wear those shoes.”

Fever
Adam touches Edge’s forehead and sighs, hoping that this – whatever it is – isn’t contagious.

Laugh

Before they started filming Rattle and Hum, Edge didn’t realise that Adam had such a gift for comedy.

Lies
Telling Adam that their relationship would always be kept a secret may not have been the truth, but it was necessary at the time.

Forever
Watching the sun go down on the horizon was something that comforted Edge and Adam – there truly was no line on it.

Overwhelmed
Edge couldn’t help but feel powerless when he felt Adam’s full strength against him for the first time.

Whisper
“What happens in the lemon,” Edge says into Adam’s ear, “stays there.”

Wait
They had to think of the fans when they realised it had been five years since the release of their last album.

Talk
If there was one thing that Adam enjoyed more than the sex, it was the banter.

Search
“So the pick was in your shoe all along.”

Hope
Ever optimistic, Edge knew that this was going to be the best album they’d ever made.

Eclipse
When they watched the eclipse in the grounds of Slane Castle, Adam squeezed Edge’s hand and told him that he wanted this night to last forever.

Gravity
They knew that what came up must also come down, as it were.

Highway
The roads were too wide; Edge wondered whether there was almost too much freedom, as they drove across America.
   
Unknown
The truth of Edge’s home life was always a mystery to Adam – he had caught glimpses, but never witnessed it in full.

Lock
Nobody would be able to barge into the dressing room that night: Adam and Edge had some “important business” to attend to.

Breathe
Adam’s rhythmic breathing reassured Edge as he lay awake in the darkness.
