We investigate the flare-frequency distributions of 5 M-dwarfs that experienced superflares with energies in excess of 10 erg detected by ASAS-SN. We use K2 and TESS short-cadence observations along with archival ASAS-SN data to categorise the flaring behaviour of these stars across a range of flare energies. We were able to extract a rotation period for 4 of the stars. They were all fast rotators (Prot ≤ 6d), implying relative youth. We find that the flare-frequency distributions for each of… Expand
