Well, gosh. Trust me to not explain stuff properly.
The 'Verse: Have you read any of Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books? Well, the base 'verse for my story is something like that only instead of Jurisfiction policing proper fiction, my girl gets shanghaied into working with the under-staffed, under-funded fan-fiction department (official name not yet thought about): basically, they're all doing their darndest to cull the absolute worst of all the Mary Sues-type fan fiction out there and aren't having much luck.
The Mary Sue I want help with is the one Janet encounters on her first, accidental, foray into a fanfic (I completely and utterly stole the idea of a person being able to read herself into a book from Jasper fforde. Grovel, grovel) and which she doesn't actually help capture but is taken in to the department for questioning anyway.
Janet is not, I hope, a Sue. Once I've written a bit more of her I'll post her here for everyone to pick at.
Er, I'm having her fall into a Harry Potter fic that her ill younger sister makes her read to her, so that's the 'verse she falls in to.
...not sure what 'filk' means. Forgive me.
