An old friend stopping by

Hello my lovelies, long time no see!
To those who don't know me I used to be somewhat of a forum troll, a graphic fanatic and a lil tomb raider obsessed :3 This was four to five years ago and I am sure I have matured a little.
What's new? Well.
My mum suffered a serious brain injury in January of this year, and consequently I've been hopelessly devoted to ensuring she recovers as much as possible.
I've been to the states and back to pursue a long distance relationship, and I've evolved into a hardcore online gamer on Perfect World International, (If ya'll take a walk on the wild side and try it, PM ingame on Harshlands PvP @ LilMissQQ (I decided I got bored of the PvE server so abandoned my well gears cleric D:)) and I'm still attempting dangerous scientific experimentation.

After a conversation with a friend from said MMO, I stumbled upon the trailer for Turning Point which immediately reignited my passion for Lara <3.

Missed you all :3

After a conversation with a friend from said MMO, I stumbled upon the trailer for Turning Point which immediately reignited my passion for Lara <3.

And that's why I really love this trailer. The same happened some time ago in the german part of this forum with a member who seemed to have lost interest in TR after "Underworld".

I remember you and it's great to have you back :thumbsup I have to tell you though, that most of the guys who used to be active (Masterofdesaster, Pippin, Panda,...) seemed to have lost interest in TR or the forums as well. Grape is stopping by (and spamming every thread [hehe] ) avery second month or so though.
However - we are trying hard to "save" the english forums and maybe some of our "oldies" will also come back once the new TR is released :D

Sad to hear about your deseased mother - I hope she's doing better now?

It was magical really. My boyfriend had to ask me what the hell I was staring at given I wasn't staring at him (in a video call at the time). My reply was to simply copy the Youtube link to him. The sheer beauty of the CGI had me mesmerised and I completely fell in love all over again. So much so, I've taken to scouring fanfiction.net once again looking for good tales I can sink my teeth into for a dash of escapism.

And I haven't spoken to any of the 'oldies'. I spoke to MasterOfDisaster last year via Youtube messaging though I've completely lost touch with Panda unfortunately.

And thank you, my mum is on the mend. She's on a long path back to recovery. She's plateau'd at the moment, her progress is somewhat inhibited by the perpetuating cycle of crushed confidence caused by lack of memory. We try ever so hard to build her self esteem only for her to shatter it, when she feels she is useless. To go from a mother who is responsible for all household chores to someone who is physically inable to participate in said chores (due to weakness and mental incompetance) is a huge leap. We're all starting to realise now exactly how much we've been through in the past two years since my last grandmother past away whom we were all very close to. Its at those times when you're walking through the emergency room to see YOUR relative in resus, that you realise how precious your family and friends are. At that point, materials and money mean nothing.

A late welcome back from me as well :wave2
Glad the trailer sparked some interest!

I'm so sorry to hear about your mother :hug I really hope she makes better progress fast, and that you're able to build up her self esteem again. Must be really hard for all of you.

I somehow managed to miss a message via Youtube from MoD. But anyway I did reply and friended on facebook/yaknow. He said he'll make an appearance when his schedule clears up as he's off to university in a few weeks :)

I'm newer to the forum, so we've never met, but I wish your mother a speedy recovery.

Also, hopefully the English side of the forum will pick up a bit. I keep walking out of my room and getting confused when I hear English on TV after reading German for a few hours. ;)

Thank you, thank you both :)
Facebook update: Panda accepted me as a friend after realising I wasn't some strange person XD.

I'm trying to kerb my excessive posting ~no longer wanna be a troll of sorts P: Though! I downloaded XNA Lara by Dusan and have started playing around with Lara so keep an eye out for any creations. Alternatively see my DeviantArt page ~ALittleBitReckless for any creations which I'm in the process of locating and uploading.
