Rational Twilight: Luminosity:

That might make safety pertaining to to EMPRESS REGNANT BELLA, OF THE MOST NOBLE AND GOLDEN HOUSE CULLEN's rule more complicated, come to think of it. They'd want to leave, as before, and there isn't really a way to keep track of them...

Okay, yes, I really wanted to use the title.

[up]One of the reasons that Didyme wanted to leave, was because she was a human drinking vampire, thus, din't liked the presence of the larger coven, something likely to be reversed now that she will have to drink animal blood. At any rate, Marcus is quite more vulnerable now, and despite everything, still is one of the Volturri, he is bound to have some enemies.

his safest bet (to him and Didyme 2.0) is staying with EMPRESS REGNANT BELLA, OF THE MOST NOBLE AND GOLDEN HOUSE CULLEN and her guard

Would Marcus be particularly more vulnerable, if he were to get his Didyme back?

Also, how is that name pronounced? I'm guessing either DEE-dih-meh or dee-DIME, and use the former in my head, but I've never been sure.
I pronounce it DID-ee-MEE, but I am, of course, no expert on Ancient Greek.

I just pronounce it in French. Did-im.

I don't know the "written" pronuciation system, but in my mind it would sounds a bit like Di-day-me (close to Didame) or something.
"Here to welcome our new golden-eyed overlords," said Addy promptly.
I pronounce it did-may, but I don't think that's right...

Google told me that the name was Greek, which is why I had her speaking the Greek of the relevant era, but I don't know how it's pronounced. I can't speak to Meyer's intentions either, which may or may not accord with the way the name was really pronounced back when. In my head it sounds like "DIH-də-may".
Sometimes I write things.
I haven't been able to find a proper IPA gloss for it, but if it's Δίδυμη and carries a regular Classical Greek pronunciation, then it's /didymɛː/, or roughly "did-uhm-eih" with some assumptions about stress. The /y/ sound is difficult to render in English, though, and I'm not sure exactly where the stresses go.

Okay... I think I start to call her P.Diddyme in my head, why? Why not I say.

Also, without the influence of Twilight, did the Luminosity world had a "vampire crazy" like the real world? If it did, what caused it? Would smart for Bella to publish actual facts as fictional books? How will John react to find out that Anne was killed?

EDIT:

I was thinking about Nathan's power, how... effective Nathan's power should be? I mean, would it be possible to exploit it to make decision not purely based on timing?

Example:

Nathan has to assist a human who has been poisoned. He has 3 vials with unknown substances in it. One has more poison, one has a harmless substance, another has the antidote. Could he use his power to find out where the antidote is based on using his power to know "what is the best time to drink the each vial"?

It can be assumed that poison should always be drunk later, and the antidote earlier.

[up]Either Hilarious inacurate, offessive, both and (if they are truly smart) awesome.

EDIT:

Idea, they should get Addy, potentially with a piece of Razi, to go hop around the world using Aro's power to absorb the minds of the top scientist/intelectual authorities, specially the ones related with genetics, and have her blast Elspeth and some other vampires with it. Instantanious Scientistic Team just add Venom.

Only trouble would be that she can't touch any scientists who happen to be witches. Other than that, would be very useful—sounds like a good way to ensure knowledge is not lost.

[up]Actually I was thinking that it would be a way for Bella to start her own science/genetic research team, to do several things that we discussed few pages ago (find a way to create eggs for female vampires, find ways to easy the thirst, discover how vampires and half-vampires "tick" and how to use this is a favorable way to humans, etc)

I suggest a piece of Razi, so she could just "pop" in and out of Volterra if necessary. At any rate, there can't be that many Scientist Witches.

But if there is at least one, it should be called Harry

There's some utterly broken things you can do with combined powers, aren't there?

Elspeth herself is a One-Woman-Education-Instute-For-Everything-Forever. Princess or not, she is extremely valuable asset, if only as a teacher.

EDIT:

Oh god, I just realized...

Didyme 2.0... The blast victims... They are DOLLS!

On the subject of sudden realizations presumably made while away from the computer—mine was, at least:

James was not killed by Aro, so the last few moments of his life are not with him.

Didyme? She probably remembers dying.

Gah.

EDIT: That was my best onomatopoeia of the sort of sick/uneasy/fearful/etc. feeling that realization gave me, by the way. ...Which is surprising, given I shouldn't really feel anything for Didyme yet. Brava to the author.

[up]She probable remembers being torn apart, not sure if she remembers being on fire... is that a bad thing?

[up][up]Let's see if I can replicate the "sympathy for a character you don't actually have much reason to care about" phenomenon:

Allirea's state of rest - what happens when she's not actively exerting effort - is to be unnoticeable. This has always been the case for her. Anything that is clearly "about" Allirea is not worth notice unless she acts to counteract that default.

She's also a half-vampire. This means that her mother died an agonizing death by childbirth.

And no one cared.

[up] [up] Going along with that, how on earth did Allirea keep from starving as a baby? I know that infant half vampires are able to sustain themselves somewhat well, but completely independently until she was old enough to know how to make herself noticed?

[up][up][up] Alicorn, stop talk about things that aren't important

[up][up]Oh, you are feeling inspired or something?

Well, glad to see that some of my theories are correct, too bad that the other four patients are mnemetic overloaded.

I actually lol'd when the doctor asked how many languages Elspeth knew. "A Lot" indeed.

[up][up]Allirea bit the first person who came by to see where her mom had gone (they didn't forget her mom existed outright, they just didn't notice she was horribly pregnant), and then bit the person who came looking for the first person, and the person who came looking for the second person, and so on. It was a lucky coincidence that she managed to make herself noticed and felt inclined to do so (wanted to be picked up) while her father was still in the area, or she'd have grown up feral.
Sometimes I write things.
[up]So...did Allirea's mother not notice either? Because that's rather terrifying.

EDIT: I've just realized, I've been worrying about how Marcus will react when they tell him, but they can just have Alice check his reaction. That's a relief.

Why can't Elspeth "counter" Allirea power? I mean, shouldn't Magic be able to tell that Allirea is important? Or she is deceived by it herself? Could Elspeth learn to counter Allirea assuming that she was able to concentrate long enough.
