The analogy is a good one, but you'll forgive me if my aesthetic sensibilities are offended by the analogy: fanfic : Lucas :: Stoppard : Shakespeare.

Well, if it makes you any happier, the analogy should not be taken to imply that Lucas == Shakespeare. Not sure where I stand on Stoppard.

The Monk is pleased to hear your disclaimer. He is also pleased to discuss his feelings in the third person.
If you haven't read
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
, seen it performed, or watched the Tim Roth and Gary Oldman movie, it's amazing. Highly recommended.

I've seen R&G. Performed bits of it myself. I've just never seen any of Stoppard's other work, so I'm not really sure what to think.
