| RaiderGirlx chapter 22 . 9/14
I already told you that I LOVE this story but I wanted to leave a little more detailed review :)
First of all, you have a very pleasent writing style I could just relax and enjoy reading without any trouble of understanding or anything like that.
I really like the way you describe the sceneries and situations taking place.
The amount of action and reaction is just right and I like how nicely you make the jumps between a calm moment and a sudden burst of action, it's entertaining and enjoyable!
I have to tell you, you made me hate fake Kurtis so much and kept me thinking "omg this HAS to be Karel I mean cmon Kurtis would never behave like that! Please let that be Karel!" I literaly got angry at some points xD And when true Kurtis finally came along I was like "YES BITCH YES I KNEW IT" and I was so happy xDD
I love how you made Lara and Kurtis cooperate, they are a fantastic team and the heat between them is just right, flirtatious, building slowly but steady (and me going crazy fangirl all in xD)
And the part that made me literally roll on the floor in crazy laughter:
"What are you planning? This wall is not going to give you a hug no matter how pitiful you look whilest doing that" XDDDD 333
All in all you're doing a fantastic job, I really really enjoyed reading so far, actually read it all in one sitting it was so consuming :D
WHERE'S THE NEXT CHAPTER? *raging lartis bitch mode activated*
ups...pardon me :D soooo...when's the next chapter coming up? I can't wait to find out what's going to happen next *_*
Take care! xoxoxo

It's been a long time since the last update, so I'll try to avoid the meaningless praising and provide an useful review for a change, so you, my dear friend, I hope, will find it useful for improvement.
First of all, you take too much time to update, and that makes people lose grip on your story - as for me, I'm sad to say I've practically forgotten everything that went before this chapter, and it's a shame, since it's impossible for us to re-read the fanfic everytime you update. There wasn't an update since November, and that's too much time. Please, consider seriously not to let this happen to you again. I know I'm no one to teach lessons about frequency of update, but I must be honest and this acts against you. Try to update more frequently so your readers don't get lost or discouraged.
Secondly, the chapter is perfectly written and correctly put, but for me, it's a bit long and tiring. The chapter is mostly action scenes and this doesn't work the same being written that if you see a movie. I would recommend to make these action scenes that long because it's easy to get lost or tired. But apart of that, I can't say a thing against how it was written - the chance to see Kurtis as a sniper was delicious - and you obviously took inspiration of TRAOD concept art in Castle Kriegles to write that horse chase. The only problem is that to end that chase is enough with shooting the animal, so clearly those Cabal mercs are a bit silly! :P As for the rest, I'm not sure which was the goal of that whole plan. What Lara and Kurtis achieved, if not shooting some mercs? It felt a little pointless, just for the sake of the action. Maybe it's a problem of my misunderstanding, since I'm not so fond of action scenes. Also, how does in earth Kurtis manage to run the same distance Lara rides with a horse, and be there before her? I wonder.
Finally, I must say that Lara and Kurtis personal dynamics has been stuck since the first chapters. It's time to move on and be done with that pointless banter. They just tease each other like teens and avoid to be honest. That feels immature, they are supposed to be adults and at this point, the teasy-peasy we saw in airlock should be more than over. I hope in next chapter, when moving to Croft Manor, they will be finally mature and sincere with each other. Not in they way they must confess their love to each other or whatever! But in a way they recognize each other as valid partners, competent cooperators and be done with the sarcasm jokes and the silly teasing that doesn't fit them. They must now reach the next point.
I hope this review doesn't discourage you in any way but I felt you should know how I see. The story's been kinda stuck for many chapters, as if you thought every chapter individually, as an one-shot, and this kind of long fanfics need an already structured plot, a connection, a planned progression. We must see the characters evolve and the story moving to some point, and that, to be honest, I only see it hinted - finally! - at the end of this chapter. Please make this whole story move forward. The writing is too good to let it progress that slowly. Good luck!

Olaa an update , whiiii! :-)
I like the teasing betweem them. Lara is getting warmer for Kurt :D
Those little remarks of Kurtis are PERFECT for him.
And yeah ... Lara is being Lara :D!
Can't wait for the next update Xxxxx
| TR Kurtis Trent chapter 20 . 6/27/2017
This is an amazing story so far
| Claire Sail chapter 19 . 4/18/2017
ahhh the real Kurtis is back! And he's so much more pleasant haha. This is a great story. I can't wait to read more of Lara and the real Kurtis working together again. Don't wait too long to update! ;)
| Claire Sail chapter 18 . 4/18/2017
Oh. My. God. I knew it!
| Claire Sail chapter 17 . 4/18/2017
While reading this i can definitely sense something is "off" about Kurtis...
| Claire Sail chapter 16 . 4/18/2017
Oh I love the description of the main hall. Very clever to have the torches cast her shadow in the shape of the LV symbol. And do I detect references to concept art in some of those texts? And the description for Eckhardt's pit - very chilling! You are a pro at this.
And what is Luther Rouzic up to? Can't wait to see where this goes!
| Claire Sail chapter 15 . 4/18/2017
Zip and Lara's dialogues are some of the best parts of this story so far! I just love them bantering!
| Nemesis chapter 19 . 3/28/2017
I just had to read your story from the start (yeah all 19 chapters) and I'm having so much fun with both Lara and Kurtis!
And, much as I hate to admit it, with Karel, that shapeshifting bastard as well! "Enough, mortals" is probably the best line ever said by a villain! Ever!
I also would like to thank you, as well as many writers here for the insiration I get to continue my own story... kinda trying to continue but seems hopeless... oh forget it...
Keep up the good work and please, please update soon!
