I'm hoping you didn't think there were going to be spoilers in the comic once you read the opening panel. I wouldn't do that to people.
I dithered on the last panel between Ophelia's line and this version:
Ophelia: All the world's a fan-fic, and all the men and women are its critics...I'm still not entirely sure which works better. But I've made the call and it's too late now.
Will hasn't had a line for a really long time, by the way. I thought it was about time to use him again.
It's the closest thing I could find, anyway. Essentially the idea that the author of a work has no right to be considered more authoritative about the canon or interpretation of that work than anyone else. (You may or may not agree with this - I'm just trying to supply a reference for the sort of idea that Will is mentioning.)
