    So, not sure if this is the right place to ask, but does anyone know of any round robin story sites that aren't Addventure, I remember one that I read a story on, but I can't remember or find the one I want.

    Got a request of my own, if nobody minds. I'm trying to find a webcomic that was really popular on TWC a couple years back, but has dropped off the radar since. It was a once-weekly comic about two coworkers in a post-apocalyptic world, and it was pretty heavy on the flashbacks. The female lead was a redhead and self-taught witch, while her partner was a swordsman--which really stood out because it was a modern setting, and his swords were either magic, or guns and bombs just really sucked at demon killing. Possibly both. They were white-collar office drones before everything went to shit, and their boss had some vaguely-defined but important part in ending the world. The first major arc took place in a military refugee camp.

    Oh, and everybody was a nekomimi. Everybody. The soldier's helmets even had triangle flaps on top, for the ears. The author was an open weeb, but not the obnoxious memetic kind. He was super-stoked about taking a long trip to Japan for work reasons--might've been a full-fledged job offer, but my memory's vague on that.

    Could it be Writing.Com? There's a lot of interactive stories on there, mostly (but not always) fetish-focused.
    (There are round-robins as well; that's a different thing. What AddVenture has is interactive stories, so you're probably talking about those.)

    Also, there are several different AddVenture sites; UBEA is just the most famous one. Though "ancient and hoary" is a good description for most of them (for UBEA too, come to think of it, but at least UBEA is still active).
    Sounds a lot like how a typical Writing.Com interactive would start. You sure it wasn't there?


    EDIT:
    Might as well ask my own question... I've read a webcomic a while back (mid-2010s or thereabouts) about a team of D-list (maybe E-list?) superheroes struggling to make a living with their rather weak powers, in a word where superpowered people were relatively common. Lots of shenanigans happened; two that I still remember are a trip to Mars (with a lot of weird happenings once there), and a toy store looking like it came from the 1980s that also paid 1980s wages to its workers (which was still the highest reliable earning that one of the team's members could find).
    I tried to find that webcomic again, to find out what happened later, but I was unable to figure out what it could possibly have been.

    I distinctly recall finding it through TV Tropes, but at some point I checked all the TV Tropes superhero webcomic articles that I could find, and none of them seemed to be that one - which made me even more confused. To be honest, by now I'm actually kind of wondering whether I just dreamed it up one night...

    Writing.com seems too new if I'm looking at it.

    Though you did jog my memory in that I remember the two openings had different things happening, with the dragon in each regressing to egg form and hatching into the appropriate species for the world.

    It's actually pretty old, going back to at least the mid-2000s. If your story was older than that, there's a good chance that whatever site it was on just isn't around any more.
    It's possible that you're remembering an earlier design of it; IIRC, there had been some design changes, which is not the case for, say, UBEA.

    But, again, there are quite a few other interactive story sites (the AddVenture genre was really popular back in the mid-to-late 1990s), and some of them (Anime AddVenture comes to mind) closed down sometime between 2005 and today.
    So it's also possible that the site you're looking for is offline now (and/or that the site is still around but the story was removed, which is also known to happen, though it's probably less common).

    Ah, probably a design change then, I’ll fiddle around with it more later.
