Emma/Jean pairing is fairly rare within the overall X-Men fandom, but it is one of the more common femslash pairing within the comicsverse fandom. The pairing's popularity seemed to have spiked with Emma Frost joining the X-Men team and after her tryst with Scott Summers in the 2000s. Little to none fanworks were created prior to it.
Emmajean fic weeks 2017, which was a mini big bang, was created for July 2017 in order to increase the Archive of Our Own Emma/Jean tag with more fanfiction. At the time, the Emma/Jean tag only had 28 works as of June 15, 2017. The challenge added 14 fics to the tag. As of May 24, 2019 the tag has 51 works.
Fanart of the pairing, or at least of Emma and Jean together, are fairly common to find. Vids are fairly rare to find, this could be because of the lack of cartoon or Movieverse scenes between the two characters.
