Is it possible to make vl-hot mount this drive like it's sister drive or is this a forever consequence of NTFS?
NTFS-3g will, by default, avoid mounting partitions that were not cleanly unmounted in Windows, something all too common, I find, as Windows will often refuse to unmount something even with one of those force unmount utilities. Once it is checked and properly unmounted in Windows, or once it is force-mounted with NTFS-3g, a partition will continue to be auto mounted with no problems (at least until the next time Windows gets its hands on it, LOL).
Now vl-hot can handle this for you if you don't want to go cli when it happens, or if it happens so often you get fed up with the whole thing. Just go to the "FAT/NTFS" tab in vl-hot-config and check the "Forced" option in "NTFS3G options". You can also set this directly by opening /etc/udev/vl-hot.conf in a text editor and changing "NTFS3Gforce=0" to "NTFS3Gforce=1".
