The Red and the Rest is a Web Serial Novel about a secret MegaCorp of mercenaries for hire appropriately named the Red Shirts. Because of the strange world with a diversity of humanoids and tons of super powers, the Redshirts are able to perpetuate massive acts of violence and war profiteering to screw over anybody without money or connections.

Despite all of this, the story takes a humorous, often whimsical tone as the protagonists deconstruct and reconstruct various adventure and action tropes.

The first chapter of the story can be found here.
