Either way, Emmett doesn't have enough openly true fans. 'Bout time he's getting some attention around here.
Absolutely! When I first joined two years ago there were only a handful of Emmett fans. Literally, you could count them on one hand. And let me go ahead and explain my "Back Off" banner because someone has already asked about it. It was made by someone that has been around the Lex almost as long as I have. Back in those early days I quickly gained the reputation of THE Emmett fan. So there was a running joke about how I had Emmett hidden some place and wouldn't share him and that I fought dirty to keep him.
But see, I'm gradually learning to share because he's finally getting the love he deserves.
So, let's get to know the Team. At what point did you fall in love with Emmett? Was it a specific point in one of the books or his personality in general that you liked or was there something else that triggered it?
I read Twilight and New Moon back to back right after New Moon came out. I liked Emmett from the scene in the Jeep when they are running from James. At that point he became my favorite character and has remained my favorite throughout the series. Even though I loved him, my real Emmett obsession started when someone asked about the type of bear that attacked him. Like everyone else, my very first thought was "grizzly bear". But then when I thought about where he was from I realized it wasn't a grizzly that almost killed him. For those of you not familiar with the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, there are no grizzly bears in that area. But there are plenty of black bears. So, following reason, it must have been a black bear that attacked him. From that one question I was hooked and started gathering every bit of information about Emmett I could find. Seriously, if you have a question about Emmett ask me. If the answer is out there I probably know it. So, I fell in love with Emmett in Twilight, but my obsession was triggered by someone's innocent question.
