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?

Therein lies another contradiction in canon.

Carlisle can remember his father pretty well, (at least well enough that Edward knew the story as well as Carlisle did) and since his father is most likely the person to instill Carlisle with his religious views, I imagined that Carlisle does remember his life before his turning.
As we know meyer does like to tell you one thing about her vamps, yet have one of the super Cullens be the exception to that rule (i.e. an uncontrollable thirst for blood - which bella doesn't get. 3 days of horrible burning agony - which only bella and carlisle are able to endure in silence)

he's just mentioned slightly. I can't get the quote right now sadly. Probably best to as chthonya. :)

Best of luck!
