*** Given the condescending attitudes I've read from people who read Methods of Rationality and Luminosity, as well as those who edits tropes based arouns said fics, it's not surprising. If I was told "the original story was stupid, the fan fic is better because the author wrote it for smart people, J.K So-and-so Tolkien is stupid!" I'd be rather turned off from reading the fic at all. It'd be like somebody offering me a serum that makes me smarter - why should I cheat when others work to educate themselves, and why do you think I need it so badly?

Besides that, you're dealing with a series that has a MASSIVE amount of HateDom.

** You mean if Bella were downright stupid and didn't care about understanding herself at all.

* A bit of FridgeBrilliance implied by the first chapter; ''{{Twilight}}'' is what would happen if the Bella in ''Luminosity'' didn't record her thoughts. Hence, she would be less rational, easily delude herself, and likely carry an IdiotBall as a result.

*** I ''know'', it doesn't stop how frustrating it is to convince people that ''yes'' that is a good story, despite being a Twilight fic. =/

** It sounds like it's a radical departure from Twilight. For those who like the books they wouldn't want Bella changed that radicaly, after all they like her. For those who don't... well they don't like Twilight and aren't interested in reading about the characters of Twilight at all, changed dratically or not

->"Are we sure Pera's straight, just as an obvious thing we could be missing?" my mother asked.
->"I guess she could have lied to Addy, but it doesn't seem likely," I said.
