I don't think you would need to personify it.

How about when you start a document, the logo starts off with the LibO
logo that we have worked on and the more you type, the more the folds of
a paper plane appear, and then the logo shows a paper plane outline to
finally its final shape of a paper plane ready to fly ... it is done!

I am liking the paper plane icon concept more and more, as well.

To go along with the icon, we could create various folding templates for
different paper plane designs, put a LibO icon on them in prominent
places, and distribute them digitally as ODGs and PDFs. We could print
them out for conferences, and let people pick them up and fold them using
instructions printed as part of the template.

There are many great designs to be found online, such as these:

This could be the basis of an extremely good marketing campaign.

"LibreO -Fly the Plane" or something similar, paper plane designs on line, in 
templates and extensions.

I'm coming round, I like it a lot, certainly as a launch platform.
  "LibreO takes Flight"

and so on
