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?

SIGH* I am ashamed of myself.
I'd SO date Marcus! Granted he would probably end up finding me in bed with Aro, but still...

Is it wrong that I find Aro very adorable?

By the way, I do think Marcus must have been an ace leader in his day. I think he just comes across as a romantic now that he has been pining for a dead wife for centuries. Before that I see him as, yes, the one member who was most merciful and diplomatic but I still think he was very much a vampire and could be a cruel bastard when he needed/wanted to be.
You don't become Aro's second in command if you showed weakness and mercy at every turn. I say that it's only tolerated now because Aro somehow needs his gift (I honestly don't know why. Since Chelsea can sever ties, surely she can sense them so Marcus' gift isn't as needed as it once?) and he is much easier to manipulate now than he was then.

At that point, there was only a tiny coven to command, so maybe mercy was a viable option
Yes, to an extend but if Marcus was lenient with most vamps guilty of going against the laws I still don't think Aro or Cauis would be very impressed. They were trying to build an empire here. I would say it was most important, especially in the early days, not to show any sort of weakness.

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.

Aww, no, lol. You should have stuck with it.

No I've not yet read it, but love the idea. I sometimes really believe that we are just an experiment.
Some big grand design for us is just to make us sleep easier at night.

Usually I don't have a doubt in my mind about an after life and all that jazz, but lately...I don't know. I think I'm just tired of being looked down on and feeling like a moron for being Catholic. The majority of my friends are atheists and I really don't care because I am firmly set in my idea that there is a God. But I'm being a bit paranoid lately what with doing nothing with my life and I'm beginning to think that my friends consider me unintelligent for believing such tripe.
It's all very up in the air right now and depending on my moods. It's a bad week this week.

I don't mean the fact that I'm Catholic. Just the fact that I believe in God. They probably don't even think this but it feels like they look down at me and think 'so silly, this day and age'

And you really should come here :) We'd have a blast as I showed you around Dublin and all our pretty priests :P
