Say this is in a novel, and the main character (let's say in first person perspective) stops talking about what's happening around him/her and starts more or less talking to you, the reader. Like some form of monologue to the person reading this hypothetical novel.

It means that they are taking themselves out of character, like if you read a story about a girl's narrative of her life and suddenly the tone changes, it's a good chance that the author is taking a stand in the story. Hence, Authorial intrusion. ^u^

Does this work?

" This was the terror of the poor being whom the reader has perhaps not forgotten-little Cosette."

Online Authors

Many online stories do this. Fanfiction authors and other online authors do this often.
