A Round Robin tradition at the Civilization Fanatics Forum, each Draw Your Own Story episode is a collaboratively-created comic, usually about the CF forum. The notoriously confusing and complex plot tends to involve the authors' self-insert characters combating a villain/seeking out an artifact who/which has incredible power. Lots of explosions and military hardware is usually involved. There is a massive supporting cast, most of which are characters imported from video games, tv shows, comics, literature, and historical and real life figures, resulting in a massive Mega Crossover and/or Anachronism Stew.

Also infamous for personality conflicts among the contributors (not so much nowadays) and frequent Series Hiatus.

Yes, it has a Wiki. There have been 12 episodes so far, but unfortunately threads for episodes 1-9 have been deleted and live on only in memory.

The available episodes include:

  • DYOS 10 - a story of the Avatar Wars, where people's old forum avatars rebel against their former masters;
  • DYOS 10.5 - a Sequel to the above;
  • DYOS 11 - tells about the struggle against a mysterious Hacker who closes the Off-Topic subforum, thus denying the forum users their daily dose of flame wars.
Tropes used in Draw Your Own Story include:


  1. holding Thunderfall's soul
  2. It's also suggested Umbrella was defunct and Wesker on the run for some years prior.
  3. Although given Rebecca is a Combat Medic, her protest was kinda hypocritical.
