Default Tomb Raider Fanfiction Comp #5: Entries

Banner? What banner? :P I'm a writer, not an artist, darnit.


This comp's theme is:

Unlikely Situations

Lara has a baby. There's a corgi puppy at Croft Manor. Amanda is begging Lara for help. Lara is crying inconsolably. Winston has quit. Natla and Lara are snuggling (). Or perhaps something else extremely remarkable and unlikely has happened.

Why? Well, that's your job! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to put Lara or another character into an extremely unlikely situation and explain how they got there, as well as how they get out (depending on the story)... but you MUST keep the character(s) in character! Avoid OOCness like the plague!

Entries must be no smaller than 100 words and no greater than 5,000 words. Unless it's really good, and then I won't yell at you. It was 2k but I realised my entry was already longer than that and unfinished, so. There you are.

Please use proper web spacing-- this means hitting enter/return twice between each paragraph or line of text, rather than just once. It won't disqualify your entry if you don't, but since I'm making the rules I felt like putting this in here. (Hint: This post was made using proper web spacing). If you need help or an example using prose, PM me.

Entries must be appropriate for the general message board audience, though a bit of innuendo or implied fun that isn't too offencive is generally alright. Adhere to the standard for the rest of the board.

You may only submit one entry for voting. If you would like to submit mutliple stories for fun, have at it, but specify in a very obvious way which one is supposed to get voted on. I suggest allcaps and/or bold at the very beginning with a lot of space between that and your story, because if I can't tell I'll disqualify all entries by you.

All entries due by 11:59:59PM EST (4:59:59AM GMT) January 31st, unless otherwise updated.

Winner picks the next competition theme.

Feel free to PM me with any questions. Or, y'know, if I'm not allowed to make my own rules.

Yeah, YOU of all people (and Dan, and any other of my wrimo babies I missed in this thread) should know that with me in charge it was going to have to be way longer than 1k.

You're welcome to PM me, but I'm not quite sure I understand your question...
