Story RecapEdit

Janette chooses to intervene in Erica's life. (A prequel to "Last Act" to avert "Last Act.")


Written for havocthecat in the 2010/2011 Fandom Stocking game on LiveJournal. Beta'ed by Wiliqueen.

"Getting Involved" was not actually posted to AO3 until July 2014, when Amy somewhat revised it.

Author's NotesEdit

  • "Janette claims often throughout first season that she avoids getting involved... and yet the better we get to know Janette, the better we understand the exceptions to her rule. Erica could have been an exception. It's in second-season's "Near Death" that Janette asserts that she wouldn't consider death a choice."


  • "Janette cocked her head. She took in the playwright’s shapeless coat, which covered a long polyester dress in the jewel tones of the previous decade. With Erica's brown hair in last year’s curls, and her now-antique ring overwhelming her left hand, everything about Erica’s appearance jarred Janette’s survival-honed fashion sense. Keep up; keep hidden. Fall behind; fall prey."
