I realize this isn't exactly breaking news, but I've been away from home for several days with limited computer access. So in case you haven't heard elsewhere, I just want to give a shout-out to all the dedicated writers who entered this year's Village of Tokakeriby Tomb Raider Story Competition. Their mission: create an original piece of short fiction starring a younger Lara Croft.
First place: "The Floor is Lava" by Dog Lover
Second: "Brief Candle" by Phil Jones
Third: "The Doppelganger" by Harmoniad
The first and second place winners received a Tonner Lara Croft doll and a swanky Lara cosplay wig. (Whoo hoo!)
All the entries are posted on the VOT contest page. I highly encourage all Tomb Raider fans to check them out. Congratulations and thanks again to all the talented, hardworking fans who who shared their wonderful stories. I enjoyed reading them very much.
