* ''Literature/HeroesSaveTheWorld'': Across the world, one hundred adolescents unexpectedly find themselves in possession of superpowers, running the gamut from conventional to world-breaking to annoyingly limited. But despite the diversity of powers, certain patterns emerge, and as the Children begin to find each other, they realize that the world itself may be in great peril.

* ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' dark fantasy web serial is about the struggles of a goblin to survive. It has a consistent and limited magic system that follows strict rules. The story also attempts to create a logical world using standard fantasy tropes.
* ''Literature/{{Pact}}'', Creator/{{Wildbow}}'s second web serial. A dark Main/UrbanFantasy. The main character discovers upon the death of his grandmother that he has inherited the fortune, and bad karma, of a notable and hated family of demon summoners. Behind the Main/{{Masquerade}}, the world is dominated by human magical practitioners and supernatural "Others", who in order to gain and maintain power (and indeed survive) must play according to (and find loopholes in) the very specific magical laws of the universe.

One of the first authors to use aspects of rational thinking and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-classical_logic/ non-Aristotlian logic]] as the basis of their world-building and character interactions was [[http://www.panshin.com/articles/vanvogt/vanvogt1.html Alfred Elton van Vogt]], who authored [[http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?58/ 39 original novels]]. While opinion is divided on the literary merit of van Vogt's work, many prominent science fiction authors have listed him as being an influence on their work, including [[http://www.philipkdickfans.com/literary-criticism/frank-views-archive/vertex-interview-with-philip-k-dick/ Philip K Dick]] and [[http://www.scifiwright.com/2008/11/van-vogt-was-the-wellspring-of-wonder/ Harlan Ellison]]. One of those author's who built upon the success of Van Vogt's works to arguably create the genre known as 'rational fiction' was EliezerYudkowsky, who wrote the popular piece of Harry Potter fanfiction Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality and put his own views on the subject into [[http://yudkowsky.tumblr.com/writing The Abridged Guide to Intelligent Characters]]. A sizeable community of people who write or enjoy this type of fiction exists on {{Reddit}}: https://www.reddit.com/r/rational

The Genre [[TropeCodifier Codifier]] is EliezerYudkowsky, who wrote Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality and put his own views on the subject into [[http://yudkowsky.tumblr.com/writing The Abridged Guide to Intelligent Characters]]. His interests are probably responsible for some of the genre's incidental characteristics. Nonetheless, the genre keeps increasing in popularity far beyond its progenitor.
