Rational Fiction

Stories with characteristics of Rational Fiction, a genre growing out of the Harry Potter and Methods of Rationality fandom and related communities.

Rational Fiction includes those stories with the following qualities:
- Nothing happens solely because 'the plot requires it'. If characters do (or don't do) something, there must be a plausible reason.
- Any factions are defined and driven into conflict by their beliefs and values, not just by being "good" or "evil".
- The characters solve problems through the intelligent application of their knowledge and resources.
- The rules of the fictional world are sane and consistent.
