MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 18How long had it been? Three months? Three, almost four months since 2D left Kong studios. The whole place wasn't the same at all without the blue haired singer. He was a part of the place. He was a part of the band. He was a big part of their FAMILY. None of the band members had the feeling to do anything. Noodle had spent the most of her time by looking out through the window like a puppy that waited for its owner to come home and play with it. She had waited like crazy for several hours every day for the singer to come back. Sometimes when she wasn't looking through the window every fifth minute she used to walk into the singer room and lay down on his bed. She used to fall asleep there and later the drummer had to come and pick her up and carry her back to her own room. Russel felt horrible to see the poor girl suffer like that. He had tried his best to make Noodle feel better. He always used to walk up to her and ask her how she felt and suggested different things they could do tog
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 15The morning after was horrible. It was like everyone had a hangover. Well at least Murdoc had a real hang over. He always drank so much. The others wondered if he's organs had started to rot by this time. Russel had spent the whole last day on his room talking to Del. His best friend could always help him with problems and cheer him up. Russel missed the time when his friend still lived. Noodle had sleep so bad that she almost couldn't keep her eyes open. 2D had lots of problem with keeping himself calm. He had spent the half night to clean up the blood after Murdoc's and Therese's fight. (Little too dramatic eh?). None of them said anything at the breakfast table. They didn't even say good morning to each other. The band had their last concert tonight on this place before they would keep going. The four band members sat all quiet and ate their breakfast slowly. Suddenly the silence broke when Noodle noticed a scratch on Murdoc's cheek. It was from where Therese had hit him. She askedMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 154 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 17The band kept going. They went from place to place and it took around a month or more. It was a long tour. The band had already been on their places and played their music and concert.It had been long weeks with fans who yelled out their names and lots of fame without any rest. The sad thing was that the band had seemed to forgotten about what happened a week earlier. Murdoc and 2D didn't fight or speak to each other at all. They stayed quiet and did their "work" instead. They only focused on the music and the concert. Noodle and Russel didn't bother at all. They just felt glad that the two guys finally stopped fighting for a while. Sure 2D and Murdoc fought a little but that didn't turned out much worse at all. And without knowing it the tour was over and the band could finally go home to Kong studios again. The bassist sat in the driver's seat and stared at the road with half opened eyes. He had waited so long to finally get home again. It was early in the morning as usual when theyMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 174 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 16The night slowly turned into morning. The sun rose over the hotel and the first one who woke up was the bassist. Murdoc hadn't got much sleep at all. He hadn't got any damn sleep at all since he came here! Murdoc groaned and rubbed his black messy hair. He rose from the bed and stretched a little. He could hear some small creaking sounds from his neck and he groaned deeply. Today it was only packing and driving on the bands list. Murdoc didn't bother to get dress or brush his teeth. He walked around in the room and started to collect his things that lay all over the floor. The room looked like a bomb had exploded in there. The bassist chuckled when he imaged the cleaner's expression when he or she saw the mess the bassist had left after him. Murdoc didn't have to bother so much about his clothes since he didn't changed clothes that often. And he now realized that he had felled asleep in his black jeans. He didn't care if he had worn them for almost three days in row now. It was how heMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 164 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 13The third concert was over. The band got lots of applause and happy screams from the crowd. Some of the fans tried to jump up on the stage too. Lucky the band had guards and security for that. 2D smiled and grabbed the mic again. He thanked the crowd for coming and seen their third concert. The crowd yelled higher and clapped their hands hard together. The band thanked them again before they went off stage. Murdoc wiped some sweat from his forehead and carried El Diablo on his back. He stretched a little to get rid of the pain in his neck. For some reason his neck often hurt after a big concert. He rubbed it and groaned at the same time. When the band had got off stage a wave of fans quickly blocked their way (as usual). They spent a long time on photos and autographs. It sometimes felt like it was the same fans every time. Murdoc sighed as a group of girl wanted to take a few pics with him. He stood in the middle as all the girls hugged him. He pointed his middle finger at the cameraMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 134 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 8The sun slowly rose over the hotel. The sunlight sneaked its way through the bassist's window and hit his face. Murdoc groaned and turn his head away from the sunlight. Murdoc stretched himself out a little and noticed that his arm touched something beside him. Murdoc froze and open his eyes in shock. The bassist slowly turned his head to the side and noticed a girl with dark red hair beside him. Murdoc put his hand over his face and groaned more.MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 84 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Therese: hmmm Oh good morning baby.
Murdoc: Oww my head
Therese: Ohh was it too much last night? You were great.
Murdoc: At your service
Therese: Hmm is someone a little grumpy right now? *poke's his nose*
Murdoc: Stop that! *slaps her hand away*
Therese: Gee! Chill out a little.
Murdoc: Look, fine it was great last night. But I believe you have to go now.
Therese: What? Why? *sits up and stares at him*
Murdoc: Because you have to! I mean, did you really think that you could stay here forever?
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 112D left his room around lunch time and went down to the lobby. Murdoc had been on his own room and was drinking like crazy. The bassist didn't want to remember anything of what happened. Noodle and Russel had taken a swim in the pool and then sat down in the living room and talked about the whole situation. None of them understood why 2D and Murdoc were so angry at each other. They were used to see them both fight but not like this and for so long. 2D wasn't even used to stand up against Murdoc and fight back. Noodle started bite on her nails when she thought so hard about what could be the problem. Russel smiled and petted her head. They forgot about the whole thing for a while and had lunch together. They didn't want to ask the bassist if he wanted to join them. They were sure that he already had enough problems. They were right. Murdoc sat in his hotel room with the floor over flowing with beer and vodka bottles. He sat in one of the chairs that were near the window and sipped in thMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 114 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 12The next morning Murdoc woke up with feathers in his mouth. For how long had he been chewing on the pillow to get rid of the thoughts of 2D? The angry bassist spit them out and growled. Why did he even care? The tired bassist rubbed his head and groaned. He got up from his bed and pulled on some pants. He then dug into his jeans pocket to get his cigarettes. He stuck one between his lips and looked for his lighter. He saw his lighter laying on the night table. He picked up the lighter to and lighted the cigarette. The smoke from the cancer stick helped him think and relax. Murdoc sat down in his chair and looked around the room. Then he leered at El Diablo from the corner of his eye. The band had their third concert tonight but the bassist didn't felt so exited. He took another deep puff from the cancer stick and glared up in the ceiling. For how long would this keep on? On the other side of the wall was 2D sleeping deeply. He had been sleeping well this night without much trouble. SooMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 124 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 1Today was a big day for the famous band Gorillaz. It was now time for one of their biggest tours. Everything had to be perfect for them. They had had meetings about the whole thing for months and had planned it up so many times already. It was early in the morning at Kong studios. All the band members were sleeping and had to get their energy for the big day. Almost everyone was sleeping except for the bands own bassist. It was very rare that Murdoc Niccals were up before lunchtime. It was early in the morning and the sun hasn't even risen yet. But it didn't seem like the bassist were tired at all. He was all woken and seemed ready for the day. A high smash was heard over the car park. Murdoc had smashed the door to his Winnebago wide open. He walked out and stretched himself a bit. He never had felt so excited before. He just knew, this tour was going to be one of the best. Now that he was awake he just had to wake up the others. Murdoc went to wake up his first victim, 2D.

The clothes he was wearing was killing him too. The outfit he was wearing was a black tight jacket and black jeans. He also had a black tie and a black hat. The girls had almost the same out fir but had skirts and diadems instead. They did some sort of fashion collection of some sort of office clothing. 2D and the girls had to get ready for the next shot so they were just in the middle of getting their makeup put on and get their hair styled. 2D didn't wanted so much of it and got the chance to sneak away to get some water before he would pose for the collection. Just as everything were about to get settled Amelie came running in high speed yelling in French. Everyone around the place got confused and looked at each other. 2D only raised an eyebrow since he didn't understand a word of what she said. Amelie ran up to 2D and put her papers on the table iMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 223 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 2After a long and uncomfortable car trip had the band finally reached the big concert place. So this was the place where they were going to play at for around the past weeks. Murdoc parked the near the hotel where they were going to live at. The bassist stepped outside of the car and inhaled the fresh morning air. After him came three tired, irritated and hungry band members. They looked around the place and then went to the back of the car. Murdoc opened the boot cover and took out his stuff, the others did the same. Murdoc took El Diablo on his back and start walking towards the hotel. Russel helped Noodle and 2D to get out their bags and Instruments. It was amazing that everything fitted in the car.MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Russel: Hey Muds!
Murdoc: *looks over his shoulder* what!?
Russel: Are you sure that the hotel is open? Isn't it too early?
Murdoc: it's fine! I called them before and told them to hold the place open for the world's biggest band.
Russel: yeah yeah
2D: Noodle, are you awake?
MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 6After a while the bassist left his hotel room and walked out to the balcony. He was going to check out on the other band members. The others were swimming and playing around in the big swimming pool. Noodle and 2D played around like crazy and Russel tried to make them both calm down a bit. It was always a big risk that someone got hurt when they acted too childish. Murdoc stopped right in front of the pool and stared at them. He then shook his head slowly and sighed. Was his band really that childish? Noodle noticed him and swam up to him and smiled.MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 64 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 21Back at the car park at Kong studios Russel had just helped Murdoc to get up on his legs and dragged him to the car. They needed to get to the airport and get Noodle back. Russel had even tried to make Murdoc drop the damn frying pan he had swing around with after poor Cortez. Russel was so damn tired of this all. He gave the bassist a slap across the face to make him stop acting like a moron. Murdoc had just shook his head a little before he started chuckle and talk a lot of crap again. Russel sighed and grabbed the car keys from Murdoc's Winnebago and unlocked the bassist's new car. Russel blinked at the bassist who only chuckled.MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 213 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Russel: Stupid question Get in!
Murdoc: Just make sure to kill us on the way Russ.

MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 20Soon the evening came over Kong studios and Murdoc had stayed in his Winnebago the whole day drinking and kicking things around like crazy. Cortez had glared at the bassist without a word as he sat all still in the couch. Murdoc was so angry about the picture he saw before that he were about to lose his mind. He didn't know at all how he could be so bloody angry and jealous. Murdoc threw himself down on the couch almost right on Cortez. The black bird croaked high and flew away from the bassist. He sat down on the table in front of the bassist and glared at him with dark eyes. Murdoc ignored the bird and lighted a cigarette instead. He didn't know what to do anymore. 2D seemed to enjoy France and his new job, and he didn't seem to have any thoughts on coming back to England and to the band. The bassist groaned at the thought that Gorillaz couldn't keep on without the blue haired boy. Gorillaz was the bassist life, his everything, his life! He lived for this!

MurdocX2D - A big tour ch 5The band had spent a while upstairs with a slow breakfast and then a fight between the drummer and the bassist. Noodle had bit Murdoc in the leg when he had tried to drag 2D into the fight. Murdoc had almost hit Noodle but the guitarist was faster. She had kicked him between his legs and Murdoc had yelled so high that everyone thought that they would become deaf. Why did the band always fight before a concert? But soon they got along and decided to take the risk and go down to the lobby at last. They weren't sure about what they were going to do when they got down. Russel tried his best to kept Murdoc away from the bar. He didn't want the bassist to get drunk before a show. They all had held their breaths when they entered the lobby. They had feared that a group of fans or something worse would glomp them on their way down. They had been lucky this time. Even if it wasn't that early in the morning was it almost no one in the lobby. They all relaxed and walked around a little. 2D stillMurdocX2D - A big tour ch 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

He groaned as he rubbed his hair and forced himself out of the bed. He was going to take photos for the new collection today. The blue haired singer didn't felt for it at all. 2D went to the bathroom and brushed his teeth. After that he watched himself in the mirror for a while. He didn't bother that much of his reflection like the girls always did. They went crazy if they discovery a pimple or that their makeup were messed up. 2D shrugged and then got dressed. He didn't care about eating breakfast and instead walked out on the balcony. He stared out over the town and sighed. He thought about Noodle's message again. She seemed to miss him very much. 2D felt bad for leaving her without even say good bye. Noodle was like his little sister after all. But yet the singer couldn't go back.

His head was killing him. It felt like his whole head were going to explode any second. 2D stretched out his hand and grabbed one of his bags that were close to the bed. He opened it and slowly started digging for his pain killers. He found the little bottle and opens it with a slow move. 2D shook out 2 pills and quickly threw them into his dry mouth. He didn't bother to drink any water to it and swallow the pills as best as he could. The singer sat in the bed and felt the pills slowly reach their way down his throat. Now he hoped that the pain would disappear as soon as possible. As he was waiting for the pills to take effect he felt someone move beside him. 2D jumped a bit and saw Jill sleeping peacefully beside him. 2D gently poked her cheek and Jill groaned quiet and opened her eyes.

Murdoc had come back into the room soon after 2D had woken up.
The singer was sitting-- as usual-- against the headboard of his bed, humming to himself and mulling over whatever it was Murdoc had gotten him into. He turned his head when he heard the wheel of the door creak and spin, and managed a half-hearted grin when he heard familiar footsteps cross into the room.
The other made a sound of acknowledgement and sat on the mattress next to 2D. He could feel the weight dip, and resisted the urge to scoot away a little. "Had a nice nap?' he quipped, his tone teasing. 2D paused. What did Murdoc mean by that?
"Shuddit." the vocalist decided to snap back. "Had a bad dream. Those pills messed me up summfink awful."
He wasn't sure if it could be classified as a bad dream, though. It certainly wasn't good. But it felt more like a drug trip than any sort of dream.

Over the StarsThe apartment building was squashed into the corner of a musty street, cluded with smog from the city below and rain from the clouds above. The halls were slim, the one on Stuart's floor seemingly worse as the choking scent of Korean food slipped out from beneath the door beside his own. The lady living there was nice, so no one had ever told her to plug it up.Over the Stars3 years ago in Sketches More Like This
Stuart himself lay strewn across his couch, his body showing the tell-tale signs of misery and malnutrition. He was shirtless, exposing the obscene indent he considered a stomach -and anyone else would consider a skeleton- and his bandaged wrists. He was on his back, one arm over his boney chest and the other hanging off the couch in what would have been a comfy position. He was sick, however, and everything hurt. Everthing. For the time his painkillers had coaxed him into a fitful sleep, which showed little mercy in saving him from the haunting pain and nauseaa

Noodle yelled out the words high as she dragged 2D after her. 2D and Noodle had been out for shopping during the afternoon. 2D had been looking for a new zombie movie but he almost already had everyone and he thought that the new one's sucked. Noodle had been looking for clothes that would fit her taste but she hadn't found anything either. After awhile they still hadn't found anything at all. 2D suggested that they should go back to the jeep and go back home. Noodle agreed and followed him. When they were halfway back to the car they passed an Asian shop. Noodle's eyes widen and she quickly grabbed 2D's hand and dragged him towards the store. She told him to hurry up so they could get in faster. 2D flinched in shock as Noodle dragged him into the shop and ran through the shelves in high speed. He didn't even have the chance to ask her what she would buy before she let go of his hand. He yelped as he accidently flew into a shelf nearby. He shook his

Blinking 2D sniffed the air. Something smelt...odd. The edges of the world blacken as dizziness spun through him. His mind blanked as his head smacked into the window he had just been staring out.
Everything was dark the retired singer realized. Every bit of him ached as if he had been cramped all together for a long time. Pausing he realized he was cramped together. Where was he? 2D felt trapped and afraid. Panic raised and he struggled pressing himself against the walls of where ever he was.
Hope suddenly filled the panic filled skull of 2D.

His arm over 2-D's shoulders, watching some random Disney crap they'd rented the night before, Murdoc felt the warm bit of happiness grow. The quiet noise that filled the room was just enough to derail his train of lazy thought, but not enough to distract him from the warmth that he and the lead singer shared.Noodle's Sabotage- Chptr 13 years ago in Sketches More Like This
Stuart was watching with child-like attentiveness, though was snapped back into reality if Murdoc so much as twitched. There was something inside of him that squirmed delightedly at every little movement the bassist produced and it made the boy inwardly chuckle at himself. He watched with a small grin, the character having a joyful childhood flashback. Subconsciously, Stu snuggled closer to Murdoc's side and let his head lay against his shoulder.

The one line had replayed in the singer's head for most of the day. He couldn't get it to go away because he knew, in an odd way, it was true. It described how he was feeling lately... but it didn't help. Rather it made him feel even more hopeless then before.
It had been nearly a year and he was still yet to get a chance to talk to anyone that wasn't a robot, working, shouting about a lift or his best mate. Murdoc he minded least, of course; even if the man seemed a bit more, in a word, insane then before. Sure, back at Kong Murdoc had been 'crazy', but this.. this was the real deal.
2D ignored it, just glad to be with his mate and hoping his cheery attitude towards everything made sanity a bit easier to come by for the older. They had their moments when Murdoc seemed almost normal, like he had all those years ago when he first strolled into Uncle Norm's Emporium that fine saturday morning.

Rain pelted down against him and he pressed his back a little tighter against the back of the stage, wondering what the odds were that it would choose today of all days to rain. His blue hair stuck to his face as he tried to hide from the voice amplified through a microphone on stage.
"I.. I'm not sure what we are going to do now . Things just aren't going to be the same " Noodle's voice quivered and she hiccuped into the mic, letting out a choked sob as Russel's strong boom took over for her.
He didn't bother listening, knowing it would only hurt worse the more he thought about it. The wet, limp doll in his hands was crushed tightly against his cheek, soaked with a m
