Subject: I'm not familiar with the genre, myself. Can anyone help me out?

That is, assuming there is a genre of fics like this and it's not just (taking a guess) "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality" and copycats of it. Further questions I have are: What makes a Rational Fic? How popular are they? What, if anything, distinguishes a Rational Fic from any fanfic whose author employed rational thought while writing it? What, if anything, distinguishes a Rational Fic from a good Fix Fic?
And, since a quick Google search turned up a TV Tropes article about this, which seems to answer my questions well enough, do you, members of the PPC, have anything to add on the subject? 'Cause if there isn't a strong PPC perspective on this to represent, I don't think we need to rehash the information that already exists.
