Mako doesn't really know Kas personally but the people Kas works with sell Mako the drugs that he can't grow himself, so he knows who he is. He got his cousin in contact with the gang Kas is a part of so he can sell the meds he doesn't take, even though Mako feels like maybe Serge should be taking some of the meds but he isn't gonna like tell him what to do as long as he's happy.
Mako is Chamani's ex boyfriend. They used date, live together and Mako used to think they were happy together. They met when he was at a club selling to a customer and she happened to start grinding on him. Since Mako isn't really that kind of guy, he asked her if he could take her out for coffee instead. It was clear that they were very different, but he thought that he could make it work. He thought maybe he could make her a more whole, less superficial person that actually valued other people. He couldn't. Over the couple months that they lived together he began to feel like she wasn't really dating him as a person but just sort of wanted a boyfriend to show off to all her friends. She also didn't seem to really take his opinion or feelings at all and became rather overbearing and wouldn't discuss things with him before making them do them. Breaking up with Chamani is probably one of the hardest things he's had to do.
What does it mean when you meet someone at a music festival, do a ton of drugs, go on an insane trip and have a vision of sharing souls? It means you like that girl, and she's probably a million times better for you than your last girlfriend.
Lavanya knows Andrew as a customer and he tends to get overtly and a little crudly 'flirty' with her when he gets a little sloppy drunk. It's not that Lavanya isn't flattered but Andrew really isn't her type. That, and he's too young for her.
"Lavanya's like- the dream girl, man. She's never impressed by anything you say to her, she's exotic, she's thick, she's got HUGE...personality...ies, her hair is like a curly mane, she's COVERED in tattoos- I mean. Damn."
Back when Basil had just moved to the city and was trying to be more 'social' he went to a couple of nightclubs and just ended up being totally uncomfortable the whole time. Anyway, one he got into an argument with Simon and ended up being punched in the face a couple of times. Now, if he sees him across the street or something, he just turns around and walks in the opposite direction. Some grudges don't die easy.
"Paisley's sister? Shit man, she's hell'a smart, I know that much. She's never really had a full conversation with me, though, but I can't shake the feeling that she's judging me for not applying myself. But that might just be me. I mean, all smart chicks hate stupid guys, right? She's gotta be one of those, too."
Pandora and Lilah are in the same grade and go to the same school and because she hangs around Pandora's twin, Paisley, Pandora is more than acquainted with Lilah. Pandora doesn't have a real opinion on her, though. She's kind of dumb, but most of Paisley's school friends are too, so she isn't all that surprised. Pandora is pleasant to her, though, they just have literally nothing in common.
"Oh my gawd, okay so Pandora is super pretty and Paisley's sister but she's SO smart like the words that come out of her mouth? Insane. How do you understand that kind of bs? Like and how is she still in our grade? Shouldn't she be in like college or something? But she never talks when the teachers ask, which I think is just funny as all hell."
"The little bitch's fucking little bitch of a sister.. This fucker... I swear to god-- okay first of all, she's in most of my classes despite being not even fifteen yet so you can imagine how that makes everyone feel. Secondly, she never answers the teacher's questions, even though everyone KNOWS she knows the answer. She'll let three fucking idiots go first and then after like fifteen minutes of tension with the teacher getting more and more pissed off she'll roll her eyes and answer like SHE'S doing US a favor. And she gets fucking PISSED if you imply that she should do more shit because she's a fucking genius and everyone knows it. I could understand if she only did it once or twice but because it's literally every fucking day-- and then she gets all smug when she corrects you and shit-- UGH I wanna punch her in the face."
Leo thinks Wilson is kinda lame- like he tries too hard to come off as chill and suave but he just comes off looking like a jerk. One time he gave her, Pandora and Paisley a ride back to Strawberry mansion, though. But that was probably because of Paisley.
"WHAT a fucking little gremlin. How come when I don't obey the dresscode and I take things from people I get in a shitload of trouble and my mother has to get involved but when she does it it's perfectly FRICKING fine?! At least I'm upfront when I take other people's things. That trash kid doesn't even look you in the face and she'll swipe the rings off your fingers."
"I fucking- hate Paisley. She walks around the school like she runs it. She scowls at you, she's shallow as fuck, she's only concerned with her looks- she's a little fucking bitch. I'm sorry, I said it. And all her little friends are little fucking bitches too."
Paisley and Wilson go to the same school, and at the very least, they are friends. She finds him actually to be more genuine than the rest, which she was kind of surprised by. She actually enjoys being around him? They have a lot of views on the universe and life in common and both seem afraid of growing up into actual adults with responsibility. Plus, he's an upperclassman and he's got a car.
"I like Paisley, she's an alright enough girl. For an underclassman she's surprisingly adult in the way she thinks. I think she thinks this town is too small for her just like I do and I think we're both kinda wasted here... I'll drive her home sometimes, and she's nice to hang out with, I guess..."
Paisley and Lilah are friends, are in the same grade, and go to the same school, and Lilah is one of the girls in Paisley's little clique of 'popular girls'. Paisley doesn't find Lilah as disingenuous as some others, and doesn't hate having Lilah tag along with her, but she wouldn't hang out with girls in her grade if she needs to be seen somewhere with other people in toe.
She and Simon dated back in the day. They weren't together for that long, but Venus cherishes the time they did have together -- things just had to happen the way it did.
Fate or something, right?
On the bright side, they still keep in touch and meet up with each other.
She may have lost a boyfriend, but she was still able to keep a good friend, and she's grateful for that.
Simon and Venus used to date a little bit. He knew her from the party scene, but Simon doesn’t really keep girlfriends for that long usually. He still thinks she’s a fun person to party with, but their spark went out for him.
Lacey and Liz are coven sisters and Lacey would identify Liz as her second-in-command and also a close friend and confidant. She also loves her clothing style/ choices in outfits? Like she's such a nouveau-goth-punk queen and Lacey loves it.
Lacey and Elle are in the same coven- and Lacey often acts as a mentor of sorts to Elle (on account that Lacey is the one who sort of started the coven- not that Lacey is especially good at the whole 'witch' thing). Lacey thinks Elle is an alright enough girl, and she's good for keeping track of things for Lacey so she's grateful to that.
"I- er, I probably owe Lacey the world. She's a fantastic mentor and such an interesting person- really, I don't know how to sum her up. She's always patient with me, and makes me tea- and she always has time to teach me new things. I can't believe she's only been a wicca for less than ten years! She knows like- everything, and has the cutest familiar!"
"I don't... know how I feel about Monica. Lacey seems to like her but- I don't know. something just seems menacing about her to me. It's like she knows exactly what my weaknesses are just by looking at me. And like, I know that she doesn't- she's just a wicca like us- but there's.... something about her."
