*Who chorus joins in*
Leave a like or become a bike, while I rock a mic, in a gym with mike's tyke's. I realize I'm alright, because I will fight a termite in a basement with none lights. I live a life, infested by sights of warm nights and many dykes who speak words thats right when I slam the door on a candy pyke. You live nice, you brought war down to my height. I don't respect your shyte, I can't write if I can't think, and I'm clogged like pipes, so step off or I blast yo ass like Barney Fyfe.
Btw, now would be a really fine time for Mack to pull a Luke Skywalker. He has illegal lightsabers. Make it happen, cowboy.

You're a mean one, Ms. Asynca. You really.. are... a grinch! You're as cudly as a Natla, you're as charming as Amanda, Ms. Griiiiii-HINCH.

Wait... Ok, excuse me a moment of savage mind-fuckery. Hold on a second. Did you just tell me.. that a clone of Lara Croft came out of a mirror and filmed a porno on her friends computer while the real Lara was passed out on a boat because she has Harry Potter tattoo's? Is that what you're telling me? Because that's genius. Absolute genius. I'm sorry, like I know.. I know this would suck if it happened to someone in real life, but I mean.. you have to admit... God, I'm actually dying here. I've been watching Pewdiepie fabulizer videos for the better part of the evening and I'm.. this is like, better than shark boobs and Harry Styles as the onion lord at a gay bar. My lanta, I need to calm down and actually read the rest of the chapter. Ok, I'll brb.
Well! That got pretty heavy, real quick. Much as I know I should be upset I'm still half high on giggling so much. You know how you get when you're really tired and everything just feels so much funnier than it should be? Ya. That's happening right now, so I'm very sorry Sam that I shot you, but I will do my damndest to fix that right up. I will probably do that in a wizards hat while playing footsie with an elephant. And damn it.. I'm just going to shut up now before I make a further fool of myself. Toodles. (Wait, what? Did I really just say that? Toodles? Honestly?! Whateva.. goin' with it!)

Soooo... the scion and the slave stone together allow Natla to partially influence her while she's got the spirits on her, maybe? But then why does Natla want them seperated? Good god I just don't know... I just don't know what's going on at all anymore. I'm hella tired now too lol, it's 5 am and I really ought to go to bed. And I- I mean that was kinda hot, actually, I mean it was hella awkward and bloody weird that it's Lara, but... I'm kinda wishing she'd make those words happen when Sam's really there. Huh. I dunno man, I got nothin'.

Well that was a great idea, take the fish spirit back. I just have no idea what's happening anymore. It's making me indifferent, which I'm not particularly keen on, but it's a thing. So I guess just onward till things begin to make sense again, and I can form some kind of meaningful commentary :p

This chapter was weird man... just friggin weird. Trippy comes to mind, even though I've been straight edge all my life so I don't actually know if that's true. But it's weirdddddd man. And in keeping with that feeling, I have this suspicion that Natla is Amanda, that she shape-shifted somehow. Which brings me back to my previous point alltogether: why is she alive?! So basicly what I'm gathering here, is that Natla is invincible, and hence, we're fizzucked three ways to Sunday. Unless! Unless.. I remember thinking things were really off after a certain point in this chapter, and thinking Lara is probably hallucinating all this. SO, if that's the case, then I guess yolo.

I want to hurl a slew of cinema quotes into the proverbial air at this point, but I think I'll settle for 'Oh good...'
So I remember you said you'd consulted with someone specifically about sleep deprivation; is this really what happens? You start losing track of time, speaking gibberish, and practically hallucinating?
I mean I guess I understand the last two but do you really start forgetting whole sections of time?

As Barney Fyfe once said: "Well this is terrible, just terrible... What are we gonna do, Andy?"
| Spaar chapter 29 . 2/21
Are you for realzies? She survived being dunked in molten lava?.. Fantastic.
All these maniacal supervillains... It's making me feel like Lara's Batman instead of a tomb raider. All we need to do now is borrow 007's car and we're pretty much 100%. I have this really entertaining image of Lara try-harding to use the coffee machine while driving and Sam steps in thinking she's gunna look like a badass for figuring it out and inadvertently activates disco mode or the ejection seats or something ;p

Right, so she needed to bring them somewhere, neutral ground, without actually telling them what's going on. Something to do with the Midas touch, I kindof doubt it's to do with the slave stone or blanket, those were just the things she could take that would get Sam and Lara to follow. Or maybe it does involve them... She'd been so intent on figuring them out when she first met our duo, and I doubt it was her intent to stage that meeting. Hmmmm.. If someone has the Midas touch, and she has the slave stone, perhaps she wants to stop whoever has the touch using the stone, but if that's the case why are they on the same ship together willingly? I still maintain there's gotta be an underwater lab. That's all I'm sayin'!

I dunno if Lara's the type, but for me, some ASMR and a fan pointed at my face never fails to put me to sleep :)
Also, is it just me, or am I getting a weird vibe from Min? I mean I know she's discretely hitting on Lara and she's the reserved type, but there's some sneakiness there that I don't know how to place.
I can't imagine this is going to go well, wandering onto a ship likely filled with seedy characters... But then again Amanda isn't exaclty overly capable of defending herself and she brought a child, so I doubt she'd get on if she thought it was dangerous. But why does she need to hide from authority? It's only the crew that know what she did and are going to be coming after her. Why would she think going on a boat off-shore is going to hide her? She's probably not on the boat, but under it, in some kind of lab down there, which would explain why the boat isn't moving (sneak peeked the first little bit of the next chapter).

Just for reference, it is actually called a crossfade, and in fact, you'd rarely SAY crossfade, it's really just 'fades'. "The audio doesn't mix cleanly. I still need to clean up the (cross)fades, make it less choppy, but I think it will work."
Just a little piece of advice from a working audio engineer.
SO, looks like we're going swimming ;)

Well, so much for not wanting to drag them into the potentially dangerous antics of a Tomb Raider... BUT: yay! Min and Bree! I'm pretty damn sure there needs to be a wet t-shirt contest when they win, now that Lara's starting to get over the bumps. Or maybe twister, could be just as good, probably better actually lol. Whatever, I'm being way too pervy for my own good over this story, honestly. It's just so stringent with what Lara allows to happen between bouts of nearly dying by hurricanes, floods and thousand foot cliffs. Hopefully she'll loosen up a little and let some stuff start to slip in WHILE saving the world, instead of always having to wait until after ;)

Why yes, the solution to feeling bad about being less morally sound than your father is to do something morally unsound. Flawless logic. Aye lllllluvit. You know for a second, I almost thought she was going to say her father was Pierre lol. I'm kinda glad it's not that, it might've introduced some weirdness having her mom still in the picture. This way's probably more dramatic anyway. I wonder if Lara is going to find it in herself to redeem how the situaton with Larson turned out by sparing Amanda in the end... She still needs Amanda's help to release the things. I have to wonder, what does Amanda want with slave stones? She has the capacity to make 14 of them, and the means to do so safely with Blanket around. But why? Does she plan on giving them to someone? Think, think, think... she was obsessed with them from the beginning, they met her researching the cave, and she never missed an opportunity to get Lara and Sam to find out how they worked. Does she think they can bring her father back? Some kind of misguided scheme like that, reminescent of the Resurrection Stone from Harry Potter? Eh, I'm probably overthinking it honestly, she's most likely just crazy and evil and wants to rule the world with Plankton mind control helmets.
On a side note (I feel like I'm saying that alot recently) the love scene felt a bit lackluster and rushed. Which, I suppose, could be because they were, indeed, rushed. Still, it felt like your heart wasn't totally there in the writing. I know you probably aren't the super graphic type to begin with as far as the smutty stuff is concerned, and that's cool, you do the emotional side quite well, but the physical could really use some work if you were interested in improving that aspect.

Gives some new meaning to 'if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.' The spirits that is. Now, I gotta say, I'm no expert in ballistics, but I'm pretty sure taking potshots with a pistol at the remains of a major 6-lane concrete bridge isn't going to break it, even if there is a flood waiting on the other side. But I recognize there wasn't much else to be done to move the story along lol, so I understand.
I also find it pretty hilarious that they've essentially just been trolling around the mine camp for the past two days amidst 500 angry inmates and haven't encountered anything they couldn't handle. I mean I know they have spiritual guidance and it's Lara bloody Croft, but it just seems... implausible. But I guess Yamatai wasn't plausible either and look how that turned out ;p
