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?

if he were to be replaced by a cardboard box, it would have been a better movie. Dear Lord, like. He was awful!

Yes, Quileutes are real. After googling to find the rainest place in America, Washington came up so meyer went for the town of Forks and to incorporate Jacob in she found the local Indian people were Quileutes and made her character of Jacob as one.
(seriously, how the fuck do I know this stuff? I hate twilight!!!!)

Well I know she visited Forks but I think that was well after the books were based there. It was literally a look at a map to see where would suit best and Forks was it.

And Jacob was already a character. He was the old friend and his main role was to tell bella the 'cold ones' story and give her the grounding for sussing out what Edward was.
It was her publishers idea to delve further into Jacob, make him as big a role as Edward and have the love triangle thing going.
I mean, I know you haven't read the books, but as someone who has it's very like meyer knew exactly where she wanted to go with it, but then being advised to bring Jacob out more as a challenger for bella she did do that, but remained very fixed on what she set out to do. There is no doubt Bella would not chose Edward. That's clear from the first few pages when they meet. No matter what Jacob had to offer she was always going to go for Edward. It was never a love triangle story for me.
