"For more on this story, we turn to our Senior New Correspondent, Liberty Harmonia Estelle Rayure. Liberty, how are the people on the street feeling about this?"
Liberty was a beautiful young woman of twenty-three, with waves of amber-golden hair and eyes like pools of sapphire. If she had one flaw, it was that her breasts were somewhat too large for her otherwise slender frame. The Daily Show's wardrobe department had worked harder than ever to tailor a silvery-blue suit that fit her, although no one was paying much attention to the outfit once she started talking, delivering a report of such eloquence and pointed comedy that it would have made the angels weep with joy.
"Thank you for that report, Liberty," said Jon, struggling not to burst into tears on camera. His normally hard and stoic exterior had been warmed by this beautiful newcomer ever since she first appeared in the studio. Somehow, though, in spite of the fact that she turned all heads and had inspired at least two fistfights (John versus Wyatt and Al versus Olivia) over who got to flirt with her first, Jon's attraction to her wasn't sexual. (author's note: it's because she's his long-lost daughter!!) He just knew that he wanted to spend more time with her. And maybe promote her to head writer, in spite of the fact that she had only been hired yesterday, because she was just that good.
Some further notes, gathered from discussions on LJ:
Liberty's mother was a beautiful French model who had one night of passion with the shy but charming bartender!Jon. Soon after giving birth she was in an accident, slipped into a coma, and woke up with no memory of the year before.
Young Liberty ended up floating in the foster care system, with nothing to her name except a locket containing her mother's portrait, unaware that she was the heir to both a castle in the French countryside and the talent to run a fake news empire. With hard work and determination, she finally became the Daily Show's youngest correspondent.
Most of the handsome younger men on the staff fall in love with her. Olivia becomes her sidekick whose only role in the story is to comment on how much more beautiful and talented she is. "Stephen" is so moved by one of her pieces that he converts to liberalism on the spot.
But just when Liberty has finally reformed the GOP and gotten engaged to John Oliver, her lifelong rival, another young reporting prodigy working for Fox News, discovers her relationship to Jon Stewart. Poor Liberty finds herself painted as a schemer moving in on Jon's fortune, and Jon himself as a scumbag absentee dad. Can Liberty's beauty, talent, and unmatched fake news prowess save the day? (Answer: yes. But not before she gets a lot of pretty angst along the way.)ETA:
also, her eyes change color when the light hits them! Sometimes they're emerald green. When she's sad, they're violet.
(Any suggestions for other Mary Sue clichés to add to Liberty's backstory are more than welcome ^_^)ETA II: More of the epic
