I remember javelin16 writing a question a few months ago:
"I remember reading a fanfic a while back called 'The Magic of Monkey island' by Heather Oglevie. That story and ToMI have some very similar plot points e.g Guybrush dies, Elaine turns into LeChuck's Demon Bride, Elaine breaks Guybrush's heart by betraying him and choosing LeChuck over him, their wedding ring has great significance etc. So, did the creators read this story or are the similarities just a coincidence?"
For me, I don't honestly think that the idea of the relationship between Elaine and LeChuck in this game was a new one, or one that was created by a fanfiction author. What do you guys think? :)
