OTA: Felix at the Blood Diamond

If there was one bar in the city where Felix was least likely to get in trouble, it was, ironically, the Blood Diamond. His usually vast array of potentially disastrous life choices was severely limited, surrounded as he was by vampires -- who, by their very nature, were entirely off-limits for him -- and the sorts of mortals who preferred this kind of atmosphere. Here, Felix could drink and dance and flirt, and remain largely confident that he wouldn't do anything to which Shannon might ultimately object.

What Felix did not do, no matter where he went, was blend in. He wore a black suit, but one subtly patterned in paisley, with a pink checked shirt and a scarf that stood out a little too loudly against it. When he shrugged off the jacket to dance, the colors clashed against his hair and tattoos, and Felix knew he could not possibly be ignored. He adored it.

Breathless after dancing, Felix draped against the bar, dangling a double bourbon on the rocks from one elegant hand, having waved off the offer of one of the signature cocktails from the bartender. He lounged as if he were the one holding court, and surveyed the room, with a tempting curve of his lips that invited approach... and hid the sharp diamond spikes behind his smile.

Eric had noticed the wizard from his observation spot in the VIP lounge. It was difficult not to, with that flash of hot pink, and how much it clashed with his hair. So he had headed back down once he had seen Felix headed for the bar, and prayed - manner of speaking - that the wizard would be more coherent tonight.

Eric's own clothing was the same sort he usually wore in the club. Black jeans, and a black wifebeater. His physique was impressive enough in its own right that such simplicity did not detract from the attention he naturally drew, even from those who did not know who he was.

So it was easy for him to weave his way through the crowd, until he reached the bar, using Felix's distraction as he smiled at someone on the other side of him to reach his side without the wizard being any the wiser. "I see you've made a strong sartorial effort to blend in."

"You make it sound like there were many of them," Eric remarked, and gestured for the bartender to make another one of Felix's drink. For the wizard, of course; the only thing Eric drank was blood.

He was almost disappointed about the absence of pastel plaid, for the looks it would have drawn from their crowd, but that conversation had taken place many months ago, and he couldn't expect humans - Cabaline or otherwise - to remember every detail of a conversation.

"Tempting as it would be to actually request any - would you like to join me in the VIP lounge?" Eric offered.

Winter liked Eric's club, mostly because it often had Eric in it. That, and he liked the attention he got. He knew it was a little dangerous, but he liked that too. Just a bit.

He was about to go looking for Eric, but was easily distracted by Felix. He was always so colourful and bright- And Winter looked down at himself, wishing he'd worn something brighter himself. Oh well, it was too late to get changed now, and he wove through the crowd to make his way over to the red haired wizard, admiring him for a moment before grinning and moving to stand beside him.

"You're bright like an Azalea tonight Felix."

"Of course I am, I know the owner. We're friends," he added proudly, showing off the delicate gold necklace Eric had bought him, then grinning impishly.

"I don't think so. I think it's just shiny," Winter replied, inviting Felix to touch. "He's kind to me. He came to my birthday even, to make sure no one ate my friends."

...And to ask Winter not to throw giant pixie parties without warning him, but the pixie decided that part wasn't worth sharing. That was between him and Eric.

kersen: (Default)

[personal profile] kersen 2017-01-20 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
Kersen was not at the Blood Diamond for a good time; he'd had to talk to Eric about something. Though as he was leaving, he lingered a bit, thinking how easy it would be to pull a stranger for a bite. And resisted the temptation, because that wasn't the kind of thing he did, and just because it was easy didn't mean he should start.

He might have left without noticing Felix if it weren't for that shirt.

The last time he'd spoken to Felix was when he'd called (unnecessarily) to inform Kersen of Hannibal's death. Now, seeing him here, all Kersen could think was: I cannot tell him that he probably ate human flesh. He felt slightly ill for a moment. And might have avoided him altogether because of that, but Kersen wanted to know how Alcuin was doing. Regardless of any threats Hannibal may have made in that letter, Kersen really did want to make sure the boy never found out. It would break him. It would break anyone. The whole thing had affected Kersen enough, and he hadn't dined with him or fallen in love with him.

Assuming Felix hadn't noticed him yet, he went over to the bar, took a shot of whiskey first, and then ordered a bourbon to sip. He needed a bit of courage for this conversation, but not so much that he said anything stupid.

He walked over to Felix. "This," he said, "is the last place I would have expected to see you."
kersen: (Default)

[personal profile] kersen 2017-01-20 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
Despite the discomfort of memories of Hannibal, Kersen's reaction to that was a roll of his eyes. "I see. Well, not everyone here is dead, you know. I'm sure there are a few warm bodies to tempt you."
kersen: (Default)

[personal profile] kersen 2017-01-20 07:40 am (UTC)(link)
"I think I can handle that myself," said Kersen. But then after a beat, his tone gentled a bit and he added, "Be careful though, Felix. The crowd here is rougher than at my bar. Vampires don't always take well to teasing, and there are some here who can glamour humans."

Remus looked much as he often did, which was to say, dressed in a slightly rumpled three piece suit and brown leather shoes that should not have worked at all, but managed to convey both distinctly 'professorial' and 'a bit odd' vibes. That was, if people needed more encouraging to see professorial types as a bit odd, which on Remus' estimation they didn't. It was, after all, simply part of his facade.

"A dangerous man for a dangerous place," Remus murmured, sliding into a spot right next to Felix, and studiously ignored the way the patrons shifted around him, uncomfortable and annoyed by his presence. He had to have a bit of a staring match with the bartender before the man refused to do anything other than look surly and square jawed at him, so when he finally relented, Remus slipped a tenner on the bar, tapped it twice for emphasis, to make it clear he meant business, and ordered himself a scotch.

"Oh, you, obviously, dear chap." Remus' face was a study in certainty, from the slight raising of his eyebrows. But his voice didn't go up in shock, nor did his eyes widen: the idea of being dangerous was clearly not a surprise to him, even if he disavowed it at this moment. He took a sip of his scotch and waited for just the right moment to continue. "I mean, look at me, do I look dangerous?"

Remus let that comment hang in the air between them with a somewhat wry smile that turned his lips up at the corners, and the sort of fixed, warm look directly into Felix's mismatched eyes that made it very clear that there was indeed more to him than tea and tweed, before he broke eye contact to look around the room. "Not exactly promising for one of your vices, is it? Not enough warm bodies. Stay here long enough and you'll be celibate as a monk."

His voice was just observant, he could have been cataloguing anything and anyone, with a bit of arch humour to his tone, but then his eyes sharply came back to Felix and they narrowed with realisation. "...Oh, Felix. Is this your way of controlling yourself?"
wandandawolf: (Default)

[personal profile] wandandawolf 2017-01-21 09:16 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, if it's working, that's all that matters," Remus shrugged, clearly as ease with Felix's particular tactics. He was rather a practical sort: you did what was necessary and you followed it through. Besides, he wasn't about to judge Felix. Judgement was something he reserved for Sirius, after all. "Nice to see you can be out and about, though. I imagine some of these...folk...would have some fascinating stories to tell." Seeing as some of them were probably around during the Renaissance.

Someone sidled onto the bar stool next to Remus, and Remus stiffened a little, feeling that prickle up his spine from yet another slow, curious glance. "Still," he continued, deliberately ignoring it, "I'm sure anywhere you decided to hold court would meet some very high standards indeed."

Manuel had just been to see Eric. After being bitten and then healed by vampire blood, he'd wandered back out into the main area of the bar, fascinated by the lights and noise. His body language was looser and more relaxed than it ever was otherwise, and it was likely obvious, especially to people who knew him, that he was under the influence of something.

He'd never been one to notice or care about what Felix was wearing, but in his current state the way Felix's outfit clashed against the bright colours of his hair and tattoos was a sensation. He stared at him for a while before he spoke.

"Hi Felix," he said. "You look really nice."
