Big Grin U2 Vists an IRC channel... (Comedy Fanfic!)

Hello everyone! Upon visiting IRC channel "U2", I had an idea: What if the band members themselves decided to join the channel one day? I think it would go a little something like this...

"Some Sort of Homecoming", written by Alex Landenwitsch.

Sitting around before the opening night of their worldwide Vertigo tour, U2 are looking for something to do.


Eat dinner?

Phone up their loved ones before the gig?

None of that. Instead, the band log onto The Edge’s computer and decide to visit a little known IRC chat room called “U2”…

***NOTICE AUTH.:***Looking up your hostname.
***NOTICE AUTH.:***Checking identity.
***NOTICE AUTH.:***Found your hostname.

***There are 12 users on 1 server in channel U2.

---Now entering channel “U2”.----

***Bono has joined U2.
***TheEdge has joined U2.
***Adam has joined U2.
***BlueGorilla has joined U2.

***TOPIC: Happy Birthday Appy!…again.

<BlueGorilla> Hey! Why do I have to get the weird nick?

<Bono> Sorry Larry. We checked, but your nick has already been taken by another user.

<BlueGorilla> Drat.

<Niamh> Huh?

<TheEdge> Oh, sorry, I suppose we should introduce ourselves…

<G|OriA> Just what we need, more imposters.

<Niamh> Should I ban them, Appy?

<Appy> Nah, they might be some fun.

<Adam> Imposters? We’re the real thing, baby!

<Bono> Even better than the real thing!

<Appy> Nice one, you U2 imposters :)

<OldHomo81> LOL ;D

***MadMax has joined U2.

<G|OriA> Oh great, even more trouble.

<MadMax> You better believe it! Mwahaha!

<TheEdge> Good evening, MadMax.

<MadMax> Um…good evening? The Edge?

<TheEdge> Yes, we are the real thing, as Bono previously announced.

::G|OriA checks their location and identity::

<G|OriA> guys…I checked. They really ARE U2.





<OldHomo81> Ha, I knew it all along? ;D

<Bono> Told you! :)

<Tanya> vertigo rules! I’m going to 28 shows!

<TheEdge> 28, Tanya???

<Tanya> well, only 19….since you’re here tho, I wanted to double the number…

<TheEdge> Ah.

<MadMax> Edge, I drew a picture of you.

<TheEdge> Great! Let me see it!

<MadMax> (:-{|}

<TheEdge> Err…thanks.

<Appy> So, when do you guys go on stage tonight?

<Bono> Eastern time or Western?

<Appy> Hrmm...

<MadMax> Let’s have some fun!

<Adam> But I thought we already were?

::MadMax changes his nick to TheEdge2.::

<TheEdge> Hey!

<TheEdge2> Hey yourself!

<TheEdge> You can’t do that!

<OldHomo81> omg! I have so many questions to ask u edge#2…

<Adam> Two Edges?

<Bono> Oh no no, we had enough trouble explaining to the fans the Dalton Brothers…

::TheEdge2 picks his nose (:-{|}::

<TheEdge> Hey! I did not say that!

<OldHomo81> but it said you did

::TheEdge2 wipes it on Adam’s scrotum::

<Adam> What?! Edge!

<OldHomo81> my kinda fellow ;)

<TheEdge> But I didn’t do that! That little annoyance did.

<Adam> Yeah, right, Edge. I saw what happened here. Denials get you nowhere. Remember “POP”?

<TheEdge2> Ha ha ha!

::TheEdge2 has been kicked from channel U2 by Appy.::

<TheEdge> Thank you, moderator…

<Bono> Let’s start a new topic, guys?

<Niamh> Sounds good. I’m a really big fan, by the way!

<Bono> Okay.

<OldHomo81> how does the sogn go u guys? “free at last, they took your pie”?

<Adam>Hmm…it’s been a long time, ya’ know? Good question, by the way.

<Appy> Great way to desecrate an MLK tribute, jackass.

<OldHomo81> I know :D

***MadMax has joined U2.

<twilight> Great, he’s back…

***NickServ- The nick “OldHomo81” is owned by someone else. Please choose another. If you do not comply, your nick will be changed in 60 seconds.

<OldHomo81> Huh? is that serious?

<Appy> Yes.

***NickServ- You have 30 seconds to choose a different nick.

<OldHomo81> But I need more time!

<Adam> Time…Time…Hmm, I like the sound of that…

***NickServ- You have 10 seconds to change your nick. If you do not comply, we will hunt and kill you.

<Appy> Wow, IRC has gotten a lot more strict lately…

<OldHomo81> there’s no time.…this is it, guys…ill miss you :(

***OldHomo81’s nick has been changed to Guest90125.

<Guest90125> oh umm, I guess all that happens is my nick gets changed!

<Niamh> Yup, that’s all that happens! :)

<Guest90125> LOL

<MadMax> Moderators, look! OldHomo is impersonating someone with the nick Guest90125! You beter ban him, for OUR sake...

<G|OriA> Oh, that’s it…

***MadMax has been banned FOREVER by G|ORiA

<TheEdge> Thank goodness.

<Bono> Well, it looks like it’s time for us to hit the stage.

<Adam> Time…time…

<Tanya> we’ll miss you :(

<Appy> Yes, we all will! Good luck tonight!

<Guest90125> Sing “billy don’t lose my number”, u guys! ;D

<TheEdge> Was that a joke?

<Appy> You better leave before asking…

<Adam> Take care.

<Bono> Thanks everyone!

<TheEdge> Nice to meet you all!

***BlueGorilla has been silent for over an hour.

<Bono> Larry, say goodbye, for Christ sake!

<BlueGorilla > This fanfic is over!

The Edge’s computer suddenly explodes, and from the rising smoke U2 see the words “The End”.

“The End!”

How was it? Did you laugh? Please leave feedback and advice! Thanks!

Interesting little fanfic.

It made me laugh at some points, and even though PRIDE is my favorite song, and I have it on my highschool ring.......

"Free at last - they took your pie" made me laugh
(which is pretty good, since I defend pride, and most things that I love with a certain ferocity...)

Or was it supposed to be "Free at last, they took your life, they could not... take your pie!"

hahaha, either way would be good
