Webfiction[]

Some Chinese cultivation novels, such as Dragon Talisman, Five Frozen Centuries, Low Dimensional Game, Desolate Era, Stellar Transformations, Lord Xue Ying, and the Ergenverse have characters who can manipulate fictional, superpowered stars or black holes and/or can manipulate outer space to create attacks. This is likely linked to how some Taoists saw stars as parts of the "'net of heaven'" that bound the universe together.[1]
