Classic books are actually portals to alternate universes. Almost everything that happens in a classic is true, just not in our world, in theirs.
Now imagine that we have found a way to go between these worlds.
Due to a mistake, Proffessor Moriarty (from the Sherlock Holmes stories) escapes into our world and begins to wreak havok.
It is up to you to stop him, and you don't want to let too many people know... so, no police help.
Sherlock Holmes himself is already helping you... what other classic book characters would you want to come along? You can pick a few people for their skills, but also, the machine that lets you go between worlds is malfunctioning and a few random characters are going to come out.
So who would your team be? What skillful characters would you try to get and why? What silly characters do you think should be there? Let me know in the comments!
P.S. This is my plot for Nanowrimo! I'm so excited.
