No, unfortunately that isn't it. Thanks though.
Without being able to recall the details, that sounds stylistically like something kynk99 might have written. I don't have a link right here, but she's on motherless under that name, hopefully you can find her stories through there, if it is indeed one of hers
I'm bored, so I poked around a bit... Is it the anniversary series from this setting?
That's it. thank you so much dude! ive been looking for this for years.
Happy to help :)
Kynk99 is one of my big writing heroes and inspirations. More people should appreciate her awesomeness
