Other questions about "James"

Q: Never had it crossed James's mind that he would at some point have any kind of problem with this new employee he had just taken on. He came across a decent guy. No evident signs that could possibly give away his inability and lack of experience for such a job. He was taken in by looks and that would subsequently unleash undesirable consequences. Nonetheless, on the surface, it seemed he had made a good choice. So he granted this newbie a sought-after position in the company. Such that would take much more hard-work than all the other members of the staff were willing to put in. The first week started off just fine. But a few days later on, things turned sour. No one, not even the well-experienced boss that had ruled the company for no less than 15 years, would know how to approach the upcoming problems.And that led to the company's irrevocable downfall. soa natural?
A: (For suggestions on word use I used *asterisks* to highlight them.)

•He had come across a decent guy.
•There had been no evident signs...
•He'd been taken in by looks....
•Nonetheless, on the surface it seemed like he'd made a good choice at the time.
•He'd granted the newbie a sought-after position in the company, assuming that he would *take on* much more *work* than all the other members were willing to put in.
•The first few days had started off...
•But a few days later, things had turned sour.
•No one, not even his *highly experienced* boss who had *led* the company for no less than 15 years...
•And that would lead to the company's irrevocable downfall.
(or you could say "eventual downfall")
Q: James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher. What does it say? soa natural?
A: It's like a linguistic riddle! But in order to figure out how to read it, you need the background context. The context allows you to fill in the missing punctuation marks, so that you can read it as:

James, while John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.
Q: James was happy. On the other side, Jason was sad. soa natural?
A: I presume this is a metaphor? Mind explaining (to get more context and help you improve your English in explanation) what this means please?

Edit: Out of context, it can seem unnatural, but as a literature/poetic like, it is perfectly normal

Edit #2: An example on poetic based

James James
A week has passed
The Mountain is behind
James was happy
On the other side, James was sad
Plain fields in front of him
As his effort as award him

Based on the poem, James had a barrier in life, or a hard time, but was able to cross this "mountain" and was happy to accomplish this.

EDIT: I'm going to add the fact I didn't see there was 2 people (James and Jason) but most of what I said should still stand, with in literature, it can make sense with context but normal conversation, it isn't fluent.
Q: James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press! soa natural?

A: You would say "Does Pewdiepie sound familiar?"
