I would think that the Cullens and the Denali Clan would be really close, because they live together for a long time. The only reason they seperated was because it was becoming suspicious that they all lived together, and probably because of the decline in the local wildlife population.emilyswain wrote:the denali clan seem to be a sort of safe harbor for the cullens: edward fled from forks to alaska to stay with them with the intention of staying with them forever, to be far away from bella but as we all know, he changed his mind. and when the cullens had to leave forks due to edward's decision they all met up with the denali clan during the spring break, which is where alice had her vision of bella "committing suicide"
The Cullens and Denali's are probably like family.
I would think that now though, their relationship is very stressed. Afterall, the Cullens did ally with the Quileutes, who killed Laurent. Even if it was to protect Bella, whoever it was that was in love with Laurent (her name is evading me. ahhh!!) obviously didn't see it as justified because they refused to help the Cullens because they were allied with the Quileutes against Victoria. Now, even though we don't know if it was ever going to happen again, the two clans could probably never reunite.
Another though... I thought that even though the Cullens and Denali's lived together for at least several decades, that they would still operate like seperate halfs. Like, Carlisle still made decisions for the Cullens and just worked out an agreement with Eleazar, as oppose to them being an undivided coven.
