You know you're obsessed with TR when...

I like these threads other forums I use and I haven't seen anything like this on here yet. I'll start off:

1. You're at your work placement (which is a primary school) and the teacher mentions a gauntlet and you burst out laughing.

2. You realise you're still not over Alister's death.

3. If you have a daughter at some point in the future, you'd name her Lara.

4. You want Lara's triangular breasts back.

5. You think Alister is attractive.

6. You think Zip is attractive.

7. You think Larson is attractive despite the fact you don't like blonde guys.

8. You beat up a tree because you're not old enough to see the film.

9. You are furious with your dad because he saw it without you.

10. You suddenly get an interest in King Arthur.

11. You were eight years old, you believed the Lost Valley was a real place.

12. You think a girl in your class looks like Natla.

13. You think Barbie Orr (famously known as John Cleese's ex) should play Natla in a film version of TR1/A.

14. You want to slaughter the doppleganger in a horrible way for killing Alister.

15. You wonder what would've happened if Alister had survived.

16. You want the ability to shoot and lock Winston in the fridge back ;-)

17. You want to visit the places where Lara has travelled to.

18. You write hundreds of fanfictions which you've never finished.

19. You pretend to be Lara in the school playground.

20. You quote the films/games without realising.

21. You wear plaits in your hair to look like Lara.

22. You want to learn how to use a gun.

23. You want an authentic Lara costume.

24. You're feeling down or upset, you listen to the main theme song to make yourself feel stronger.

25. You want to slap Zip for being so annoying.

26. You want to meet the real Lara.

27. You wish Lara was real.

28. You wonder if Alister fancies Lara.

29. You dedicate a whole fanfiction to the memory of Alister.

30. You wish you had never attempted to play Angel of Darkness.

31. You have nightmares and sleepless nights after the trauma of Alister dying.

32. You still want to play the Core Design games despite not having a working memory card.

33. You watch a load of parodies on Youtube.

34. You go to the same shop nearly everyday to see they've got Underworld despite it not being released yet.

35. You want Troels B Folmann back as composer.

36. You call the moveable blocks "pull-y wool-y blocks".

37. You're upset, you think WWLD (What Would Lara Do?)

38. You play your favourite level over and over and over again.

39. You think Kurtis is attractive (heyhey, you forgot the character most girls were drooling over since the AoD release ;-) )

40. You grunt like Lara when you hit something, jump off something etc.

41. You fantasise over possible endings for AoD since there was no definite ending for Kurtis's fate.

42. You buy a stupid magazine just because there's a TR poster in it.

43. You not only write lots of fanfiction but also draw tons of fanart.

44. You buy each of the games for every single gaming platform you own (PC, Xbox, PS...) so you can compare the graphics and possible changes firsthand.
