Default Tomb Raider Fanfiction Competition #7 -- ENTRIES



Theme: The Sun Ė The sun is the source of all of lifeís energy on earth and it was widely revered in ancient cultures. For this competition, your entries must involve the sun in some way. Itís up to you whether you want to use sunlight as part of a puzzle, have Lara go after an artifact related to the sun, have her meet Ra, have her get skin cancer from too much sun-bathing, or whatever other creative way you can think of to involve the sun and make it an important part of your story.

The deadline is April 25th (one month from this thread being posted)

Rules:

  • Word limit suggested between 100 - 5000 words (I expect most entries will be around 2000 words, but I like giving flexibility if it is needed -- see quote below)
  • Use proper spelling and grammar
  • Leave a blank line between paragraphs for the purposes of posting the entry on the forums
  • The entry must follow the theme outlined above (but how you include the theme is up to you)
  • The entry must be original, your own work, and specifically written for this competition
  • The entry may refer to anything from the official games, but not to another person's fan-created content
  • One official entry per person (if you post more than one that's fine, but indicate which entry will be voted upon)
  • All entries must be posted in this thread by the deadline
  • Every participant must vote in the subsequent voting thread in order to have their own entry count


I think I got everything important (and these rules can be adjusted if absolutely necessary) so venture forth, start typing, and have fun

That's what she gets for not using sunblock

I already finished mine:

Lara checked her watch, "Hmmm, almost noon, I better get moving". All of a sudden the world went white with blinding light as the sun went supernova.

The End





The real thing will be completed by the deadline. And considering the high level of competition in this, I will compete this time.

I have an idea that could be quite good Thankfully it's the school holidays, so extra writing time!

Hopefully I'll enter this one

I was hoping for an underwater theme. Oh well, I hope to be able to take part, just need to dig deep for inspiration for this one.
