"If I can’t join the army, I’ll join the navy! If I can’t do that, I’ll be a stowaway! And if they catch me, I’ll hijack the f*cking ship, so I can end this f*cking war!"
Thomas Dage

Blood and the Stars is an original web series, centered around a galaxy, and the events that befall it. In particular, the planet Coror, made up of Cororians and humans. Some humans, however, have special powers, and they are known as Star Twisters.

It's written by 10,000 Dawns writer Aidan Mason, with the art done by his brother, Keegan Mason.

The story can be read here.

Blood and the Stars contains examples of:

  • Asian and Nerdy: Played straight with one character, and subverted with another.
    • Orelius Zhang is a scientist, and a pretty smart one at that, to the point where he has to say that Pootus was not his creation; rather, it was Star Twister energy
    • On the other hand, Galius Cho is not the brains of the operation, failing to pass off a fake diamond, and even having his intelligence insulted by Orelius. He's also a boxer, further subverting the trope.
  • Badass Family: The entire Dage family, excluding Thea Dage, are Star Twisters.
  • Harmless Electrocution: Pootus survives getting shocked after being dumb enough to stick a fork into an outlet.
    • This may, however, be due to him being a literal reincarnated stuffed animal
  • Humans Are Special: Only humans can become Star Twisters.
  • Oblivious to Love: Striker Dage does not seem to get that Angelika Reichburgh is in love with him.
  • Polyamory: Arthur Dage has two wives, Pearl and Violeta.
  • Time Travel: "The Apprentice" is the past self of the current Big Bad.
  • Wham Episode: Striker is revealed in Part Six to be not the son of Violeta, as previously thought, but the son of his father's third wife, Marie Dage.
    • Not only that, he's also a Briste Star Twister, which means that while he's fated to be more powerful than the average Star Twister, he'll also die much earlier
