My thoughts on why we never use Emmett in slash, or in anything really:

Okay, so we all want sensitive guys, right? We like them to be sweet and kind and loving and... everything, and we want that in our stories as well. Jasper and Edward we can write as sweet and loving and caring but Emmett? Mmm, not so much. Often, when he's written like that, he just seems completely OOC. Like, I was reading this story the other day. It was Human, bout Emmett, and he kept going on about how he was all tough on the outside, but then he also loved when he read to the children at the local library, because he loved the look on their faces and the happiness it gave them so it made him happy, and how he just loved to do right and be good and I was just like, "No, that doesn't work." I actually stopped reading, it was just too hard, I couldn't picture Emmett that way. So, I think, maybe, we don't use him as much because we can't mold him to fit where we want.

Anyway, loved the episode as always, please excuse my ramble.

Great podcast! Loved that you all admitted to judging a fic on its banner!

As a former book editor (I'm freelance now) I know that contracted authors tend to send their novels in chunks - rarely do editors read chapter by chapter. But in fanfic, I read several authors who do write for their audiences, even polling their readers. It's so interesting to read in serial form like this, and with the instant feedback and response.

I sadly find myself, despite being in the book business for so long, reading more and more fanfic and less and less published novels! I'd love to know if other voracious readers find the same thing happening to them.

Hey there, great recs and great discussion, thanks!

"Found" is by rcorrine, I just made it to chapter 13, and it really is a great pack fic.


I'm off to leave her a review now like a good little reader.

Thanks for your discussion of RPF stories. Alice and I Love L.A. were the inspiration for my own Rob story, One Week, and I've had a fair number of trolls posting anti-RPF comments in my reviews. I posted my arguments for/against RPF in the author note of my last chapter.

ILLA was actually my first foray into fanfiction, because before that I was afraid that the E&B stories would ruin Twilight for me. Reading a Rob fic was a more personal way into the FF world because I was much more interested in another person's concept of Rob and the way it compared/contrasted with my own. Since ILLA I have gotten fully immersed in the whole FF world and, like Alice, I read just about any kind of fic as long as it keeps me interested.

Thank you :) For mentioning 2 of my stories, Socks for Sex was a collaboration with goldentemptress, just thought I would mention that lol.

As For The Girl Under the Bed, if you're curious about the title . . . well it's a long story, so I won't clog up you blogartey by writing it all down here.

Thanks again ladies :)

I know this question is probably quite stupid... but can somebody tell me what I've gotta do to listen to this podcast, please? Can't see any button here or something... Sorry, I just don't have any experience with podcasts at all yet. It would be great if one of you could tell/help me!

Well, there are two links to the audio at the beginning of the podcast entry on top. If you have iTunes, it would be best to follow that link and become a subscriber.
You download it and add it to your player or listen to it on your computer just like music.
Hope that helped :-)
