First thing first.
AA is used to smooth that which pure pixels cannot do.
Ideally you want to just pixel purely and use technique variations as a last resort.

What you did in your update is cool because you used AA to correct/smooth what is 'technically' a bad line.
What I was trying to get at is that there are other options to be pure and use no technique such as  AA if you plan the of use visual tricks to work for you.
In my edit the line angles are not correct or line up at all but the grid fools the eye. I used the foreground grid or bars or whatever they are to hide every jaggy and the isolated bits you can't then hide by force. Of course the angle of the light rays will change which in this case it did not seem to matter much so its a smarter design choice. Sometimes you can't and have to AA. Its all about the pixel at hand.

I see what you mean, sensei, and I saw what that was doing to my lines. I'm glad that I wasn't actually too far off what you were saying. I did try that, and I found that messed with the trajectory of the light rays too much for me. So, I went with AA. Turning all the lines into a 1:1 line with it breaking behind the bars made it change course slightly, and I wanted the light ray to appear to be expanding over time.Doing that messed with their appearance too much. However, I do like what it did the light frame (or whatever the technical phrase is; the light window). It worked with that very well.

I see what you've done, and I've already applied my personal fix to the project. I will remember what you showed me, and apply it to future pieces.

The last thing I want to cover before I stop monopolizing this forum is the finishing touches: this


I was struggling with this a lot more than I thought I would, so I wanted some feedback. I used this as a reference.

Yes, the small detail photo. As you may have well surmised, this project is...how should I say...freaking big. So I made a small one, so that it would actually show up on the front page for a while, without me having to change my avatar.


UPDATE:

I decided to do this instead:
