    Relationships




    Angela Ziegler

    [​IMG]

    There are very few people out there who can match John's stubbornness. Angela is one of them.
    Having first met in rather unfortunate circumstances, Angela's genuinely kind and selfless nature quickly got to John. Over time they developed a deep rooted friendship which, as most friendships, doesn't come without its problems though. Angela has a way of enforcing her concern and care onto John which he can be rather cruel in denying. Their arguments are loaded with emotion and can get pretty ugly; despite that, John cares about Angela even when he would never say it out loud, and he'd do anything to protect and defend her.
    She is also the only one allowed to take care of him, even when he doesn't always make it easy for her to do so. In a way, Angela reminds John of his former wife, Madi. But there are no romantic feelings involved in his dynamic with Angela - only a complicated yet very meaningful friendship John is grateful for despite being unable to say so.
    Angela is the person John goes to when he needs to talk to someone who truly sees him for what he is, even when it is the hardest thing for him to bear.



    Rikki Chadwick

    [​IMG]

    Rikki was one of the first people John's met in Pandora and it is difficult to describe just what kind of relationship he shares with the girl.
    While he hardly knows her, Rikki knows him. Or at least she knows the John that Flint had described to her in his stories.
    It was difficult for John to get comfortable with the thought that she had not only been friends with his captain before he's even been in Pandora, but that Flint had apparently been comfortable enough to tell the girl about John.
    Their first encounter had been rather chaotic but it hadn't taken long for John to see that Rikki was so much more complex a person than it might first seem. They met first over shared grief and regret which almost pushed Rikki to burn down Flint's former bookstore.
    Luckily enough they managed to get the fire under control before it could cause further damage and despite not being able to understand that Rikki's powers have caused that, John invited the girl for a mug of tea, wanting to try ease her grief over both their friend's absence.
    It was the memory of James which they had bonded over and John never regretted having spoken to Rikki in the first place.
    In a way, she is a walking fragment of Flint (not that John is consciously aware of that thought) which Silver is desperately refusing to let go of.
    They developed a genuine friendship, one that was important enough for Rikki to share her biggest secret with John and gift him one of her own mermaid scales to remember her by - a gift Silver's turned into a necklace and never took off since.




    James Flint

    [​IMG]

    Flint and Silver have a long, complex history which ends in tragedy.
    In Pandora, however, things that have ended tend to return.
    When James showed up at his door, John almost had a heart attack. Before realizing that this was a second chance for them to do things differently, change the story already written.
    Deciding to remain silent over what he knew of Flint's future, John chose to do his best to fix what he's broken with James, hoping that there would be enough time to just keep Flint close and make sure the man could live a better, happier life than he's ever had in the world they've come from.




    Arcade Gannon

    [​IMG]

    What had started off as a one-night stand developed into a friendship with benefits - which was equally friendship and equally benefits.
    Arcade is John's escape when everything gets too much and too complicated, because around Arcade he can just be without having to think about anything. There is an unspoken rule between them to never speak about their emotions and do whatever's in their power to keep this thing between them as simple as possible.
    However, as is often the case, that doesn't always work. Despite that, the two of them have been able to even out all smaller conflicts between them thus far and still enjoy each other's presence.
    As much as John tries to keep this a casual, fun thing without any responsibilities attached, the thought that Arcade is much too good a man for him still can't help but surface from time to time, leaving John feeling almost guilty for getting involved with the medical researcher at all.
    There is no denying though that being around Arcade evidently brightens John's mood and helps him relax.




    Raphael Santiago

    [​IMG]

    What had started off on rather poor terms, ended in a disaster when John came face to face with Raphael's vampire-side.
    But to start at the beginning: The only thing connecting the two men originally had been Dorian Pavus, the mage whom Raphael had feelings for and John had slept with. The inner conflict here had been fairly unavoidable.
    It was only in the winter season that John and Raphael would yet come to experience an entirely different kind of connection. Following many poor life choices and reaching for the needle, John hadn't expected to find himself very soon with not merely one but two addictions. On a cold January night, during which Raphael had been struggling with his very own demons, the two men met by mere coincidence, resulting in the vampire's fangs buried deep in John's neck.
    What followed was an addiction from both sides which dragged both men down a path neither of them should ever have considered walking in the first place.
    A deal was made and meetings arranged, all for the sake of getting the much desired fix.
    But during that time a friendship was established, too; a friendship rooted in the darkest corners of the soul and mind.
    Raphael is much more than a quick fix for John - the vampire is closer to him than anybody else could possibly be, he has seen the former sailor at his worst and held his hand all the way through their very own hell. The bond they share, though it was born out of needs abusive beyond justification, is a strong one and not easily to be broken.
    What they know of each other is the raw, ugly truth, no sugar-coating, and few things can reach as deep as their understanding of each other does.
    Be it in times of peace or turmoil, John will always have Raphael's back and he is firm in his belief that this unspoken oath is mutual for the vampire.




    Aaron

    [​IMG]

    At first Aaron's been but another customer at the bar John worked at - having been ditched by a blind date. Perhaps John's felt a little sorry for the man and thus provided him with drinks and entertaining conversation - but there was more to Aaron than he would ever have thought to find.
    A casual chat at the bar led to another less casual chat at that same bar some 5 days later which then led to a spaghetti-making date during which John almost burned down the poor man's kitchen.
    But despite that, Aaron still agreed to not only teach the sailor how to dance but also accompany him to a ball full of vampires.
    Somehow, they just clicked right away and John has yet to find any bad in that man.
    Through the heroin addiction John's suffered in winter and all of his flaws, Aaron has never once been anything but supportive, respectful and simply there when John had needed him.
    Without Aaron, he would never have went to rehab, and perhaps never have made it through his addiction at all.
    John knows that Aaron has his own demons to battle and for the first time in a long time, he is determined to stand by the other's side when things turn grim, rather than make his own escape.
    From a drunken kiss to a sober one - they might still not quite know what it is they have found but John knows one thing for sure, he wants to stick around this time.
    Aaron means more to the former sailor than he might want to admit, even to himself (yet); he is John's silver lining and the only person so far who's never let him down.
