    Summary

    “Dr. Stark, I have had quite a lot of time to think about how to break this to you,” the man said, “and to be honest I haven’t figured out anything better than honesty. During the demonstration of your latest products, you were kidnapped by the Ten Rings terrorist organization; in the process, they hit you with various bits of shrapnel. I saved your life, but it shattered your spine and is lodged dangerously near your heart, giving you perhaps two weeks to live.”

    Toni considered this.

    “So what you’re saying,” Toni said, “is that the bad news is that I’m crippled, and the good news is that I’m not going to have to be crippled for very long.”

    Summary

    The first several sections of Luminosity are very similar to canon in terms of the events that occur, although aspects of Bella's character, and her internal monologue, differ strikingly.

    A few thousand words in, the plot is unrecognizeable.

    The history and character of the Twilight world are intact in Luminosity up to the point where the story begins, with one exception: Bella's a rational self-awareness-junkie with a penchant for writing down everything that crosses her mind in a notebook. She maintains many of the traits and dispositions of canon - and Luminosity is a Bella/Edward story - but she's a distinctly different character.

    Luminosity was inspired in part by Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, in which Harry is a scientifically minded and sharp-witted boy who was brought up by Petunia and her alternate-universe professor husband. Luminosity also draws on much of the material in a sequence of blog posts under the same title, also written by Alicorn.
