    Lightbulb Foreshadowing Barrons' "Immortality"

    I say immortality because I figured most people would be taken aback if I used nonbeingkilledliness again. LOL But to stay on point, there are several instances in which Barrons suggests that somethings, aka HIMSELF, are immortal in the true sense of the word: He can't die. Most immortals can live forever as long as they don't encounter a run in with their own personal kryptonite.

    Many of us do believe Barrons was the beast at the end of Dreamfever, even though Karen will neither confirm or deny he was the beast at the end (or that he is dead). But I am in the camp that firmly believes he cannot die. I am compiling evidence to support my belief.

    I know what you're thinking...OMG! VP is supporting a Barrons based theory. Um, yeah. Because it is staring me in the face and I am selfish enough to want Mac to be with Barrons in the end so V'lane will come sifting back to Savannah for me to comfort him until it is time for his book to come around and I will have to selflessly let him go....sigh. Buuuuut since I am sure I have a while before that happens....um, where were we? Oh, yes....


    Darkfever

    "Don't celebrate yet, Ms. Lane. Don't believe anything dead until you've burned it, poked around in its ashes, and then waited a day or two to see if anything rises from them."

    "You're kidding. Some things are that hard to kill?"

    "Some things, Ms. Lane," he said, beginning the second coat of my manicure, "are impossible to kill."
    This gets repeated in Bloodfever as well. The thing is, Barrons knows almost everything. If he knows there is something that is IMPOSSIBLE to kill, it means there really is. And thus far, everything we have seen (well, not counting the Sinsar Dubh) has a known method to kill it. The fae can all be killed with the spear or the sword. So we are about to go into the final chapter of the story, and haven't seen what has been referred to as impossible to kill? Nope. Because it is Barrons! mwa ha ha!

    Something nagged at me, something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It was a thing that I would stupidly fail to put my finger on until it was too late. Before long, I would understand that nothing had been what it seemed that night, and the reason Barrons had faced-off so coolly with the blood-sucking Master was because he’d gone in with the quiet assurance that, no matter what happened, he would walk out alive, and not because he had MallucÚ by the proverbial fiscal balls.
    via happygirlie
    Malluce's inhuman yellow eyes narrowed. "Do you have a death wish, human?" He'd recovered quickly, his face was blank again, his voice once more controlled, so light and melodic it was nearly a verbal caress.

    Barrons laughed again. "Might. Doubt you'll be helping me with it though."
    via happygirlie
    "That's supposed to be a comfort?" I cried. "That it will be brief?"

    "You underestimate the pricelessness of brevity Ms Lane."
    Bloodfever

    "He's dying, you know." I meant the old man. He wanted the amulet to live. When we took it from him, it would be one more inadvertent death on my conscience.

    "Good for him."

    I don't always get Barrons' sense of humor, and sometimes I don't bother trying.
    I admit it could be Barrons being a smartass, but after hearing the sound of one of the beasts under the garage:

    Why was it making such a sound? It was darker than a wail of despair, emptier than a funeral dirge; it was the bleak, tortured baying of a thing beyond salvation, abandoned, lost, condemned to the agony of hell without beginning or end.
    Without beginning or end. Alpha and Omega. Condemned=Punished. Zigor?

    I studied him through narrowed eyes. "Maybe that's why the Shades don't eat you. They're not cannibals and you're full of their brethren. Maybe they don't like dark meat."

    "So, stab me," he said softly.
    This is more Barrons-Beast theory but it is relevant to his incapability to die. Even though they both knew in this scene that Mac wouldn't stab him with the spear, he still told her to stab him with the spear to ease her mind. He knew the spear wouldn't do anything more than make him bleed on her. That's my theory, and I am sticking to it! LOL

    Dreamfever

    via Bones
    V'lane: "Did he strike you, MacKayla? Say the word and I'll kill him."

    <<snip>>

    "As if you could," said Barrons.

    "Perhaps not. But I do enjoy thinking about it."
    I am in the midst of a reread/relistening of the books. I just started Faefever this morning. If you know of any from FF or DrF please post them and I will add them, or I will add them as I encounter them.

After he handed Mac back the spear, he put his hands in his pockets, is there a reason why?? Just thought I would throw this out...
    I noticed this too!!! I believe it means something... i just haven't figured out what..... Perhaps it left some kind of mark? Or it burned his hands? Or.... Heck, maybe he just decided to put his hands in his pockets just cause....

    If V'lane had a potato chip flavor it would be an orgasm in every bite.

    Default I just got thinking

    (dangerous, I know) but what if the woman Barrons carries out of the mirrors is a Beast as well, and that is why she asked him to kill her. Didn't we learn that? I don't have my books with me, but this makes me wonder...

    The curse turns the person into a beast and has to be killed to be released from that form? Ryodan told Mac that the beast had to be killed or it would kill everyone around her. I still don't know if that was really Ryodan at the end of Dr, but maybe he knew from experience.

    A couple of us have wondered this ourselves. Ryodan has the scars up the side of his neck. Another of the nine had scars covering his hands. It makes you wonder if they got those fighting with the beast(s).

    Karen was asked if the woman that Barrons carried out of the mirror wanted him to kill her and she said "no". And she's told us that Barrons did indeed kill her.
