It's this time again!
For the second of December, and the second door of the Jemma Christmas Calender we have yet another poll for you and the results from the last one!
Poll 5 - The Love is Alive with the Sound of Music
This was a really hard choice, but in the end 'The Perfect Two' for our perfect two won out as being the best chosen background song.
Apparently, though significant, the sad and heartbroken 'Hurt' did never have a chance in the happy and love searching Community of Jemma Nation and thus scored the last place. Don't look so sad Emma. We still love the song and its scene to pieces.
To view the outcome of the last poll and see were your song ranked you can click the pic below.
Poll 6 - All I want for Christmas - Emma Version
Today there are only 22 days left until Christmas (Folks, in Germany you'll get all your presents on the evening of the 24th already. So that every kid will whine to stay up to use there new toys until the wee hours of the morning. Poor parents. ;) )
Well, since we're coming into the final spurt up to that
present- love-giving holiday and we want you to want to stay up with, or get up early for
your presents, too, we again are presenting you some choices which you could put on your wishlist. Because, we know that often one has to face that the favored jacket or the blouse which one eyed
with love and full of yearning in the shopping window hasn't made it's way under the christmas tree (Despite all the subtle, and also not so subtle, hints and notes!). Instead one will get the
new jersey from the favorite team of their partner, or an self-knitted sweater, or a shirt with a clever slogan which one will never ever wear in public. As a consolation for that we offer you
this pole in which you can chose your favorite Emma clothing. And maybe you're lucky and Santa will get wind of your choice and have it delivered to you on Christmas?
And by the way, while choosing you will be astonished to notice that, surprisingly Emma has more blouses, shirts and jackets than we all thought! ;)
With this jacket you'll be forearmed for every situation - If used as camouflage while picking lockers, as lateral protection structure from reckless VW drivers, as a cover from hostile sandattacks or simply as a simple romantic heartbeat insulation at revolutions and Lady and the Tramp scenes. This is the true Allrounder!
The Jimmy Dean
With this jacket one thing is guaranteed: Jeans fit every occasion, it's never out and also it goes with everything. But if you're still unsure, here are some situations that can be mastered with this jacket.
With it gigantic waves can be caused, math is always gonna be a piece of cake, you can show the devil (ronnie) his place, stop airplanes from going far (come on, with a self-knitted sweater this wouldn't have been half as cool and successful), and also it's an ideal outfit for playing hooky.
Are you under the mission of romance or rather drama? Well, either way, with this jacket it will be no Mission Impossible.
If it's an heartfelt apology or a goose bump causing music performance, romantic moments à deux or revelations for the 'perfect' weekend or other shocking discoveries - with this jacket you'll always look good at it.
The College/ The Buddy
What would a collection, a closet be without a College/Buddy style jacket? Well, incomplete!
If you'll get into unhoped-for love declarations, happen to eavesdrop on a song meant for you, are forced to start difficult conversation, are hit by lovesickness, or are planning your first step for your Coming Out...This jacket won't let you down.
So, which jacket shall it be?
A shirt isn't just a shirt. So of course we have to depict them one by one. Which arguments are speaking for each individual category is being portrayed in this extensive list. (Since it's not like we mean to make the choice any harder than it already is.)
The Plaid Ones
Apparently plaid is to Emma what a bat is to batman. Or saying it with other metaphors, what would Indiana Jones be without his hat? Austin Powers without his mojo? Mary Poppins without her bag? Well, in each and every case it is one thing: A symbol of recognition (and also a kind of secret weapon).
The Studded Plaid:
If worn at first meetings, when ruining ones presentation (your own or others...), singing love ballades, writing heart-tearing apologies or while being lovesick...In any case, romance and drama work hand in hand with this choice.
The Milestone-Collector Plaid
In every closet there is a piece of clothing which collected many milestones. In Emma's case, it's surely this one.
1. Getting to know the parents? Check!
2. Cuddling with your dream women? Check!
3. Coping with situations in which you are in need for a croissant? Check!
4. The first time? Check!
5. Getting fed with Yogurt and Grapes? Check!
The Plan B/GFOTY Plaid
This piece of clothing should exist in every closet whose owner once before has been elected to the GFOTY. If it's needed as support for making soup, getting ones shoulder comfortable for leaning-against, playing Watson while scheming Plan B, organizing a bodyguard for the girlfriend or bearing company while being a laundry basket occupant - this shirt fills every role completely. Really the badges on the shoulders of this Plaid are speaking for itself.
The Important Task Plaid:
Special occasions need special shirts! They are not always on the forefront of things, but if you need help with your Christmas Carols in the Pestalozzi way, or with your Coming Out (you don't necessarily need to sing lovefool while dancing): here is your hero. And who said Plaid must be blue-white checkered anyway?
The Striped Ones
Nothing plaid available? Well, that's no problem at all. Wearing striped you can just as well put your foot in it, steal kisses, deliver star quality performances and master dramas. (If you don't mind to eventually look like a convict or sailor...)
The Dramantic Striped
This shirt is for this category like the studded shirt is for the Plaid: the Dramantic Version. If you're impressing the queen of your heart, or if you need to bid farewell to your dear friend with a beautiful Be Mine, or if having pushed away your true love is causing even more drama before you are able to celebrate the Happy Days...this shirt goes through all of it with you.
The 'I'm your rock' Striped
In this shirt Emma has provoked more than one storm (who doesn't remember her putting her foot in it at Chulos after the lost singing contest or her grandiose performance at Jenny's Bad Taste Birthday Party?), but mainly she has proven herself as Jenny's solid rock by means of her cocoa deliverer, shoulder-to-cry-on provider and 'We belong together' announcer qualities.
The Sailor/ In the Navy - Striped
If the design of this shirt doesn't repulse you, you can look forward to (more or less) plausible explanations of your girlfriend, tasks as service staff, first signs of GFOTY, cancellations of swimming activities and spontaneous birthday serenades with and for friends (and if you're of legal age also a bottle of champagne, or if you're going to sea a bottle of rum.)
(Also, look how great it goes with Jenny's bag!!! This spells OTP.)
Beside the Plaid and the Striped there is seriously still enough space for other shirts in Emma's closet???
Well, indeed! And every one knows at least one of them and connects it with unforgettable moments within a blink of an eye.
(Btw, the grey one seems to be the dramantic one in this section.)

These shirts can really be worn in any situation, but to lose only one word about them seems to be said too much. Because really, let us leave it to the pictures to describe how well a simple
shirt fits into the greatest of scenes. (Also aren't visuals always better in
complicating helping to make decisions?)
In this shirt you can rack your brain about other's eventual plastic surgery, look smashing, land a job at Saal 1, discuss murder-theories and have interesting as well as insightful conversations (while getting closer to that mysterious stranger). And if school isn't working out after all, you still have a pretty good chance to getting into flying school - with you already having the right outfit.
Well, the combination may need a bit getting used to, but before taking your final judgment on this one you might want to look a bit closer at it. Because it could get you into following situations:
1. To rock, though you might not look like you have it in you.
2. Overcome embarrassing situations for Hotte
3. Having the chance to check out Jenny
4. Having the pleasure to wait on Bea Vogel
5. Train and learn Thai Chi skills
So, which kind of shirt shall it be?
Without taking Depeche Modes "Walking in my shoes" too literally, Emma's shoes have certainly deserved their own rubric. Maybe Emma can't show off as glittery magic shoes as Dorothy from the wonderful world of Oz, but still some of her kicks do have certain abilities which leave us puzzled and surprise us again and again. And the others? They have stories to tell, too.
Apparently these shoes are the perfect companions for emotional (loo-)moments. If nearing a nervous breakdown because of one's driving test, experiencing a life changing encounter in your politics class, defending yourself in an ultimate catfight, having a broken heart or being high on an endorphine boost of swooning luck - situations in which you might keel over and out of your shoes are excellently coped with in these Chucks.
Of course there are prettier boots und eventually they don't exactly go well with rolled up jeans' legs, but apparently low blows can be coped with best in those boots - cruel attacks, another woman in her bed, her drug past or a hurtful goodbye - before then you may enjoy a well-deserved chocolate bar.
Even if you have to wear unearthly boots before being able to receive these pair of magical sneakers, it's well worth it's price! And even Dorothy from Kansas would be jealous of these shoes. And not only because they already have won a contest/poll!
These inconspicuous boots have more to offer than you would think. They support you safely when belting out a ballade, help you to survive annoying discussions with your best friend, are making sure that literally AND figuratively you will not get cold feet, keep you grounded while making love declarations and in case a train to London has to be caught...well, that's no problem at all either.
So, which pair of shoes shall it be?
Phew, this again was a lot to go through, hm?
We are looking forward to your choices and as always you are welcome to discuss them in the comments!
At last we have to give a special thanks to Trinchen - without her magnificent statistics putting this together would have taken much longer ;)
Have a great day,
