I believe it'd be foolish to assume that magic wouldn't affect astronomical phenomena like stellar evolution, But since I'm not smart enough to create the equations for a new fundamental force, I have instead decided on one major effect (for now) existing on stars, and I wish to know how this would effect stellar evolution
- Stars are much more convective in this universe than in our reality, while remaining just as hot and bright. Stars up to 0.6 solar masses are still fully convective like the smaller red dwarfs present in real life; but still burn just as hot and luminous.
The type of star I'm mostly curious of are fully convective stars capable of helium fusion; which don't exist in real life. I have an idea based on intuition, and I'd like to ask if there's any science backing it up.
Here's the intuition based answer:
They evolve like a red dwarf into a blue dwarf stage (Albeit a lot faster) until helium fusion begins at which point it would turn into a red giant; which would evolve like any other red giant (though slower) until it loses so much mass that helium fusion can't be sustained anymore, at which point it contracts down into a white dwarf.
