Cold ones during the Cold war  


So I was watching a documentary earlier today - 1983: The Brink of Apocalypse. About how the Cold War came so very close to becoming World War III due to tension between the USA and the USSR and each refusing to back down their nuclear arms. (Turns out there was a Behind the Scenes Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one show on another channel, so I switched stations and I'm not sure what happened in the end of 1983... ;P)

But what I was wondering is what would be the repercussions for the Volturi and other vampires if a nuclear war did begin.

Also, would you think Aro would sit back and watch things unfold. Or would he try get in there somehow. Influence certain people, certain aspects. If so, which way do you think he'd go - for or against the bomb?

Well I would think if they were smack bang in the middle of the thing going off, well they wouldn't stand a chance as they seem a bit flammable. But the other stuff that comes with a bomb wouldn't be so damaging to them. It's not like they'd die from inhaling the ash, or lack of sun light.
But I was thinking more like their food supply would be severely lacking if the human race was brought to near extinction.
Could you imagine how much of an unhappy bunny Caius would be if he was reduced to feeding off animals to survive.
Do you think if it came to that, they'd start to pick off the vampire population too? Make sure there won't be much competition when it comes to hunting the people who remain.

i can't see aro on the phone with the prime ministers as fudge and his successor were, but i can see human agents working with them
Totally agree. They still have that whole keep it secret thing to go by. It'll be no good to tell the most power hungry men in the world that vampires exist.

i have often wondered if vampires didn't resort to cannibalism. we know they feed off one another, and we know meyer's newborns tear each other to shreds, so what is to stop a newborn from essentially devouring his cohort (survival of the meanest, as it were)?
Well I know you don't go for the whole 'stone' aspect of them. But we are told they are stone like so I don't see them eating each other. Besides, there is no blood in their systems unless the recently ate. So if they did attack each other and bite down, they'd get both sore teeth :P and a mouth full of venom.

They are destroyed i.e. burnt. They aren't eat or let go.

No, your right. There is people in on the secret but they are kept close and will either become vampires or be eaten.

In my defence, I never really promised that, lol. You just said you didn't like modern fics. I agreed and said ww1 would be the latest I would write Caius in. But then I ended up just keeping him in modern day. I'm full of contradictions!

I'm not saying its not silly, but thats the canon. The even crack like stone when they take a thrashing - and I know thats just seen in NM film, but the director asked meyer if that would work like that and she said yes. I mean they sparkle like marble in sun. They aren't supposed to assimilate into human society so good. It's basically only the Cullens who try.

Yes, meyer said that, but I was talking about if in the advent of nuclear war and vamps turn cannibal. There would be no blood in the older vamps.

Oh, sorry. Misunderstanding there. I am writing my own novel. Nothing at all to do with twilight or even vampires. It's set during the second world war and that's what is hand written.

What I mean is vampires aren't made to assimilate.

But you go and teach. :) I've not yet seen the Jane Eyre trailer. I'm still very much in love with the last adaptaion of it over here with Toby Stephens as Rochester <3 <3 <3

We really are going around on a tangent here lol. Meyer doesn't do vampires as they have been done before. The sparkle, the stone, thats her canon. To compare to other vamps in other series isn't much use because twilight is supposed to be far from the norm of vampirism.
I agree it is stupid and doesn't really work when you really think about it, but the fact remains thats still how its suppose to work in the twi series. And you know how weird I am about trying to fit things around to make sense, yet keeping them in with a grounding in the canon we are given.
It's annoying, I know lol.

I just saw the trailer, really shitty trailer, very jumpy. Not impressed but luckily I don't think it's the official one.
And I think Mia is far to pretty for a 'plain' Jane.
My Jane and Rochester will always be

I think I will watch this tomorrow :)

I stand by what I said. That isn't to say she can't pull it off character wise. But its just not believable that she's playing a plain Jane. She is far to beautiful.
It's like this new Johnny Depp trailer I saw: The Tourist. As much as I admire and adore Johnny's acting ability, it seemed off to me that he was surprised to have the attention of a stunning woman like Angie Jolie.

Honestly by that stage they were like 3000 years old. They probably relished something different. Mix things up, it's not the same old, same old anymore. I see Aro being very curious indeed about all the new happenings.

LOL

Yes you're right. In Edwards version of Twilight (Forever Dawn, is it?) he compares his life in high school as a sort of purgatory. And goes on and on about how draining it is to sit there day after day listening to the trivial crap of his fellow students. They just see it as a necessary evil to enable them to stay in a place longer. Personal I would go mad and probably just start killing of students just for something to do.
It's a silly concept and Anne Rice was right when she said why would immortals stay constantly in High School when they could be off exploring Paris or Rome.
