Default Tomb Raider Fanfiction Competition #4 - Entries


Often the only time we see Lara in her own house is when she's running around re-telling herself how to do a running jump or to pull up into a crawlspace, locking Winston in her freezer or doing a treasure hunt.

But what side of Lara's home life don't we see? Does she spend the day in bed translating an Anglo-Saxon chronicle with a mug of hot chocolate? Does she find new ruins and mysterious structures hidden beneath Croft Manor? Does she just whip up a batch of brownies in her spare time?

For this competition, write a short extract set in Lara's home. It could be the start of a whole new adventure, or just a snapshot of daily life. It can be a picture of domesticity, or full of heart-stopping action!

The deadline is: 00.00 GMT, Thursday the 24th of December

Rules
*Maximum 1,500 words (give or take 10%)
*Only one entry per entrant
*Each entrant must vote in order to have their entry counted.

Happy writing!

PS: It took me a while to start the competition up because I was worrying about making a good banner. But then I realised that the banner wasn't the most important part!

Glad to see that we've got so many promising authors in this competition! I've made the closing date of the competition a wee bit more specific.

Also thanks for the banner love.
