Almost Human/Rock of Ages AU crossover
John Kennex is the leader (singer and first guitar) of the famous rock band “Almost Human”.
Years and years of success and getting everything he thought he wanted, but now John is tired. He started because he loved music but lost himself and the inspiration along the road, becoming lonely, hostile and angry.
His band doesn’t know how to help him anymore and his only other friend, his manager Sandra, worried for him and knowing he cannot go on like this much longer, suggests him to say goodbye to his career as a singer with a last memorable concert.
The perfect place she finds for this final gig is “The Wall”, a concert bar owned by a crazy and enthusiastic man called Rudy Lom. Sandra also schedules an interview between John and Dorian Vaughn, reporter for Rolling Stones magazine, before the concert.
The interview starts badly due to John’s attitude, and ends even worse, with Dorian lashing out at John, claiming that he was once a great musician but now is just immature and on the verge of becoming a washed up, has-been rocker.
John leaves the room angry at the reporter’s words, but mostly at himself because what the man said rings too true even to himself.
John isn’t expecting for Dorian to still be there after the concert. The reporter asks for a second interview and John, surprising even himself, agrees to meet the following day. But what should have been an interview turns into something different… a heartfelt sharing of painful memories and lost dreams that sheds a new light on who John really is and wants.
Dorian realizes there’s more to this man than meets the eyes. And through Dorian’s words, John realizes that he still loves music and that he - maybe, just maybe - can try and start it all over again.
A tentative friendship begins that night and neither of them has an idea about how much this new fragile thing between them will affect both their lives.
Sorry for my English and possible mistakes… not my first language… X___x (also thank you Wikipedia for supporting me with the full sentences I needed… eh eh…)
And now, let me just say… John Kennex with eyeliner is all I need in my life.
Goodbye my heart and brain.
