YMMV: Spellbinding Radiance
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The appearance of the elite beat divas in chapter 39.
  • Bizarro Episode: The April Fool's Day chapter.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
    • John vs. Naesala. Especially when John kicks his ass.
    • John gets another one in when he has to form a battle plan after something goes against the stations of the canon, especially when his plan succeeds with very few casualties.
    • Mist in her battle with the Black Knight
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Oh, dear, where to begin?
    • John's cross-dressing stint is milked for all of its humor. Shinon hits on him thinking he's a girl and Haar walks in on an Almost Kiss with John and Jill while John is still crossdressing and pretending to be Jill's sister. And that's among other things.
      • And the entire cross-dressing stint gets even more Hilarious in Hindsight when it's revealed that there is an ACTUAL Sophia Domivere who is not John in drag.
    • John's training to drill Magic A Is Magic A below.
    • John's interrupted 300 reference.
    • "Hush! I'm LARPing!"
    • Ilyana going berserk after someone burns the food tent, for how over the top her reaction is.
    • "For your information, there were COUNTLESS innocents on board the Death Star!"
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The author's note for chapter 76 may very well qualify.
    • Chapter 33 also deserves a special mention.
  • Fridge Horror: The person who was responsible for the death of Gatrie as well as the cause of great amounts of torment for John early in the story just happened to be a time-travelling ex girlfriend who was also once a friend of Gatrie's and mourned his loss. She also happens to be the same person who killed John in the story. Ax-Crazy much?
  • God-Mode Sue: John goes dangerously close to this many times.
  • Shocking Swerve: Jay's identity. It's Jill.
  • Tear Jerker: Any of the deaths of the canon characters. In terms of tear jerkiness, however, Petrine's death takes the cake.
