– YarnWyvern
All her life, Etria had wanted to be a Star Catcher. Not a Star Watcher or even a Star Seeker…she wanted to catch the stars.

In a galaxy that set her up to fail, Etria’s journey to capture stars redefines acceptance.

Etria, a determined stella, defies expectations and becomes a Star Catcher despite her disfigurement. Teaming up with Maron, her own personal Star Keeper, they set off on a mission to catch stars. Through their partnership, Etria’s self-perception changes and echoes into her cluster, challenging the stella culture’s narrow ideals.

Join these mesmerizing space mermaids in this short and tear-jerking sci-fi adventure as they defy conventions and ignite the spirit of acceptance, inspiring others to embrace their differences.
