Thursday Thirteen the Eighth

Remember that last week I got the idea from Susan’s TT for a Bar themed TT? Well, this is it. It’s a little long so I hope you’ll bear with me. I always feel like I’m overloading you all on the Bar, but I promise not to do every TT on this story! At any rate, even though there are more than 13 couples in the story, here are 13 hot Bar couples!

Thirteen Immortal Couples from The Bar Story

1. Lucius Kohl and Opal Morgan – Luc is a vampire and Opal is an elemental. She can control the elements. When Luc makes her cry, it rains. The two of them have had a very rocky story right from the start. Opal ran away from Luc for about 25 years. Luc chased after her, always arriving after she’d left. Eventually, they joined, but it wasn’t a fairy tale joining. Instead, Opal joined with Luc to save his life, in a situation fraught with danger. Recently, the two have finally become engaged.

2. Alaric Kohl and Alexandria Valentine Kohl – Both Alaric and Alexandria are vampires. Alaric was a drunk who had lost his first mate and didn’t want the second one. Lex had lost her mate in a Nazi concentration camp and was involved with Alaric’s cousin Johann, who wasn’t interested in her for the long term. The vampire deity decided that since Lex was fading (dying) she needed to find her a mate. She put Lex in Alaric’s path to see if he would become attracted to her, which, of course, he did. She is an ex Playboy bunny after all. The two begin to have dreams of each other before they even meet, and after they meet, it’s one big let’s fall in love and have sex 20 times a day party. They got engaged in New York’s Central Park and flew to Vegas to the Bellagio to get hitched. Currently, they are expecting the birth of a son in the spring.

3. Matt Havens and Emerald Morgan – Matt Havens is a Pixie Prince and Emerald Morgan (Opal’s younger sister) is a fire elemental. Matt left his home behind the veil to live in the Otherworld as a Calvin Klein underwear model. He ends up the boy toy of rock star Carlisle Ross, who dumps him when her mate comes back into her life. Emmy is the mate of Alaric Kohl, who dumps her for Lex Valentine. Queen Mab puts Emmy and Matt into dreams that aren’t really dreams, and Matt ends up taking Emmy’s virginity. He finds out the dreams aren’t dreams when awakens and finds blood on his um you know. Emmy thinks the dreams are just dreams until, after a series of keystone cops scenes, Matt gets the chance to tell her he’s real. Currently, the two are engaged, and off to London so Emmy can record her first album.

4. Johann Kohl and Lacey Phaedra – Johann Kohl is a vampire and Lacey is a Pixie Princess. Behind the veil, Lacey lived in the duchy next to Matt’s. Her father was murdered by an evil pixie named Daggon who was obsessed with her. She escaped to the Otherworld and hid there. Finally, her job as a photographer for a tabloid, brings her into the world of budding rock star Johann, who is the lead singer of the all vampire band, Dark Ones of the Disgraced. At the time, Johann is hooked up with Lex Valentine and suffering from the loss of his mate who was killed in a bomb blast set by the evil Hellbounds vampires. Eventually, Johann gets over his first love Avei, and Lex, and embarks on a relationship with Lacey. Currently, the two are but a few posts away from doing “IT” for the first time.

5. Mary and Derek Draconarius-Wyrme – Mary and Derek are the mainstays of the Bar. They are the old married couple, but you’d never know it based on the way these two act! Mary is a red dragon, a fierce fighter, who came from a background of treachery and deceit and cold blooded killing. Derek is a green dragon, the wyvern (leader or king) of the colorless dragon sept. Derek too is a fierce fighter, and has untold magical abilities. However, his father instilled in him a desire to reunite the dragon world so that all colors were equal and at peace. Derek’s sept is filled with dragons who were either kicked out of, or ran away from their septs. Many of them have prices on their heads, but Mary and Derek never fail to accept them. Currently, the two have four young dragons, quads, who were prophesied to bring about the unification of the dragon world.

6. Tarren Griffiths and Helios Kronos – Tarren is a dragon of mixed blood. Her mother was a silver dragon and her father a black dragon. Helios is a silver dragon. Tarren’s mother was a captive from the last silver-black war. When Tarren came of age the evil ruler of the black sept, Onyx, gave her the opportunity to become one of his soldiers. As a warrior, Tarren meets her mate Gregory who runs the resistance against Onyx. After Gregory dies, Tarren is left alone. Helios has been searching for his mate all his life. On a mission to rescue silver captives and return the rightful black wyvern to his throne, Helios’ life is saved by Tarren. Tarren ends up in Helios’ family home as bodyguard to his brother’s mate Rhiannon, the heir to the black sept. Helios doesn’t discover that Tarren is his mate for quite some time, although Tarren knows. Eventually, she tells him and the two get together. Currently, the two have not yet mated and marked each other with mating marks, but they are living together at Kronos Chateau, the family pile.

7. Tristan and Winter Blackthorne – These two were my first two characters at the Bar. Winter is a siren, mated to a black dragon. Tristan is the true black wyvern. However, he spent more than 300 years in exile, while his people thought he was dead. His evil half brother Onyx tried to have him murdered, and thought he had succeeded. Instead, Tristan’s best friend and bodyguard Talon saved his life and helped him escape from Wales. While living with his cousins the Solents, Tristan meets Winter and falls in love with her. He mates her after she pulls a crossbow bolt out of his shoulder. They have one child, Rhiannon, who is grown. They lose several other babies but finally Winter becomes pregnant once more with a child whose destiny has been prophesied as linked to that of Mary and Derek’s children. Eventually, Tristan kills his brother Onyx and returns to his throne. Winter gives birth to their daughter Galen that night. Currently, the two are in Paris introducing Galen to friends and family.

8. Darrius Kronos and Sascha Kohl – Dare is a silver dragon and Sascha is a vampire. Dare had been involved with Opal’s twin sister Ruby, but she ended up mating with his best friend Xavier. After that, he began to become interested in Johann’s younger sister. However, Sascha suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome because she had been held captive by the Hellbounds vampires for many years until her brother rescued her. She had a difficult time dealing in the Otherworld and felt out of sync with her life because her brother was mated at the time to Avei. Avei and Sascha didn’t like each other. Sacha hated that Avei never liked to let Johann feed. Avei didn’t like how Johann spoiled his sister and held up for her over Avei. During this time, Sascha grew closer to Dare as Johann increasingly had less time for her. Eventually, Sascha and Dare discovered that they were mates and they joined. Currently, they are expecting a daughter in the spring and are on the eve of their wedding.

9. Rhiannon Blackthorne and Tobias Kronos – Rhiannon is a black dragon and Tobias is a silver dragon. Rhiannon comes of age (gains the ability to shift to dragon form) during a time of great danger to her family. The witch Vanora calls on her friend Tobias to play bodyguard to Rhiannon. Tobias has a rep as a party boy, but secretly wishes for a life of meaning. When he and Rhi meet, they light sparks off one another. Rhi sees the party boy and Toby sees a princess of the black sept. Toby gives Rhi her first kiss and witnesses her first kill. As the danger increases, the two grow closer. Eventually, they realize they are meant to be together. When Rhiannon’s mother is kidnapped by the evil mage Caden, and her father takes off to rescue her and win back his sept, Rhiannon is left in the care of the Kronos brothers. When the danger is at it’s height, Rhiannon asks Tobias to mate her, not just as a means of securing her safety, but because she has fallen in love with him. Currently, the two are living at Kronos Chateau dealing with family issues, but their destiny is about to catch up with them.

10. Elijah and Hasi Blue – Elijah is a blue dragon and his mate is from an alien realm, a city called Velocity Drift City. Hasi is basically an electrical conductor. With the help of an amulet that she wears around her neck, Hasi controls electricity and can use it as a weapon. The two had a very rocky beginning that included trouble with a man from Hasi’s past. Finally, they mated and Hasi became pregnant. However, she was unsure if the child was Eli’s or the man from her past’s. They finally discovered that the baby was Elijah’s. While pregnant, Hasi was kidnapped by Onyx and held in a dungeon in a Hungary castle. She was rescued by a team lead by Gregory Nefis, Tarren’s mate. During the rescue, Gregory is killed. After their son Antonio is born, the Goddess of Mischief puts something in his bottle and he grows to manhood overnight. Currently, Elijah and Hasi have recently reunited after a fight over Antonio drove Hasi from her mate.

11. Carlisle Ross and Stein Kohl – Both Carlisle and Stein are vampires. Carlisle Ross is a very big rock star with a past. Her real name is Rosslyn DeVere, Duchess of Carlisle. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, she was engaged to marry a Grand Duke from Frankfurt named Stein Kohl. However, she ran away when she thought Stein was only marrying her because of her connection to the Queen. Rosslyn bears Stein’s son out of wedlock, but he’s murdered at age ten. Meanwhile, Stein is put under a spell by Godgifu. Thinking he’s dead, his parents stick him in the family crypt. Because of her friendship with Dominic Solent, Rosslyn eventually becomes Carlisle the rock star. When Johann’s mate is killed, Carlisle reads about it in the paper and decides to go to Paris to get some closure regarding Stein. What she doesn’t know is that Dominic has discovered that Stein is not dead, only in a coma. He and Johann release Stein from his crypt. When Carlisle goes to the cemetery, Dominic tells her Stein is alive. The two eventually get over their pasts, and some secrets and join. They are currently engaged and about to go on tour.

12. Blake Solent and Eden Wellesley – Blake is a 1000 year old vampire and Eden is human, an ex-CIA agent. The two meet at Blake’s nightclub Wicked Pleasures while Eden is hunting an Otherworld assassin named Madspawn. Blake falls for her right away, but is stunned to discover she has a tattoo of his rock star brother Dominic’s signature on her hip. The two get past that and end up together almost from the moment they meet. Their “couple-ness” is solidified during a shootout in Pere Lachaise Cemetery, where they are fighting Hellbounds vampires and searching for Madspawn who is working for the HBs. Blake, who was once a Knight Templar, has a magical holy sword that kills anything evil. Eden keeps a flamethrower in the trunk of her Audi. Currently, the two have not yet joined because Eden has a fear of living forever.

13. Valerian Kronos and Nyx McClaren – Valerian is a silver dragon and Nyx is a water fairy. Val is a commander in secret branch of the silver sept’s army, the Silver Shadows. Nyx is a legendary spy and hacker known as the McClaren. The two meet when they are both on a mission to rescue people being held by Onyx. They have a one night stand and Valerian feeds Nyx his fire, something only other dragons or a mate are able to withstand. Because Nyx took his fire and fed it back to him, Val knows she must be his mate, but he doesn’t want to acknowledge it. After the mission, both of them return home. Val is injured in a black dragon attack and Nyx feels the cut along her own back. Driven to find Val she ends up with him in a B&B, fighting her feelings. She escapes once Val’s brother Helios arrives, but Val finds her in Wales. Eventually, the two work out their problems against the background of a mission to regain the black sept for Tristan Blackthorne. Currently, the two are mated but their lives are in danger from a rogue Fallen Angel named Macaire, who has a mysterious vendetta against Nyx.

    Kyra – I think we all do! They be HAWT!

    Lara – Thanks! Fortunately for me, I do this world building with 8 other writers including a couple of hot Scotsmen!

    Ve – Thursday Thirteen. Heh But I like Tornado Travel too, since that is what the twins, Opal and Ruby Morgan do in the Bar Story. They’ve been known to travel in a twister.

    Thanks for coming by everyone!

    Mary – I know I can always count on you to spice things up!

    Claudia – All of the Bar writers love their people, as well as the characters written by others. Of course, we all have our favorites *cough* Alaric *cough* but we certainly do love them all to varying degrees.

    Tempest – Remind me never to show you a pic of my Rott. LOL His hair is longer than mine, and mine’s loooong. BTW, that’s Travis Fimmell, who really is a CK underwear model. I have the pic that shows his “junk” to prove it.

    Gal – These vamps are not your Bela Lugosi undead. These are live beings, a different species from humans. They just require blood as well as regular food to survive. Once they’ve joined with their mate they can only drink from that person. Which is why when Lex visits the fanged doctor (St. James Warfield) he tells her that she and Alaric basically share a circulatory system now. Of course, he was speaking in layman’s terms for Lex’s benefit. The physiology of these vamps is very different than humans. Ack! I could go on about this for hours! Heh heh.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. The Gal Herself says:

    I’m fascinated by the idea of a vampire being an alcoholic. I keep thinking of Bela Lugosi famous line, “I never drink … wine.” Also, I just thought that somehow the undead were above that sort of thing. I guess they share many of the same foibles as we mortals, huh? Very thought provoking notion you set forth! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

    That was a good summary of our folks. Old married couple, pppppfffftttt…. the only one that is old in our relationship is Derek.
    Without him robbing the cradle and bringing me into his life he would be bald and have alot more hair growing out of his ears. Gotta keep the world spicy!!!!!

    Susan – I’ll have to send Dominic Solent (who looks like Tommy Lee), our resident former rock star turned producer, to talk to Trevor about recording. Do you think Trevor would like having a vampire as a producer?

    Darla – Everyone in Eden’s former world as a CIA agent, carried cool toys in their trunks!

    Lyrical – Since Elijah isn’t my character the choice of Speedman to physically represent him wasn’t my choice. That would be Shiny (the female one). But I know all about dreams of celebs. Nikki hasn’t been back since the dream I posted here, but I live in anticipation of finishing that dream some day.

    Adelle – If you keep coming around, you’ll find I’m always talking about these characters!

    Thanks for coming by everyone!

    Nice look inside. I’m definitely more and more intrigued every time you speak on it. Unfortunately I somehow don’t get more and more time to indulge in creating a character and considering jumping in. But like everything, it’s eventual. *grin*

    Thanks for coming by and for giving me more info on the Bar.

    Happy TT

    Kaige – Even though all of those characters aren’t mine, I love them all! They are part of my world.

    Mo – Matt does happen to be my character, and his intro to the story as Carlisle’s boy toy is one of my favorite parts of the story. He’s naked,lying face down on a bed in the Davies Suite at the Claridges Hotel in London. He’s a fun character, not one of the dark tortured souls. He laughs at himself for being the CK underwear guy.

    Nicholas – The other ladies all have a character named for themselves because the story was originally RP and evolved. So my first character was Winter. I started out thinking she was me… but she’s not. She’s far more serene than me. In personality, I am more like Lex Valentine.

    Thanks for coming by!
