First Impressions is a Document in the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration DLC Blood Ties. It belongs to the Lord Croft's Journals set and contains the description of how Lara's father met his future wife Amelia back at the Oxford library.

This document is located inside Lord Croft's Study and can be found on the desk in form of a tape recorder.

I always knew that my parents met at Oxford... but never the circumstances. Just like Dad to argue mythology as a way to flirt.

Well, this is a hell of a thing. I met someone tonight, quite unexpectedly! But it shouldn't have been, it seems. I've been so buried in my work, so distracted by my latest revelations... I never bothered to notice my surroundings.

But there she was, sitting at my table in the library. Her name is Amelia, and apparently she's been studying right next to me. Art History, of all things.

I shared some of my research, against my better judgement. But I wanted to see how she would respond. And she did not disappoint. I felt as if I was suddenly engaged in a mental game of chess - moving and counter moving in argument. At one point that poor old librarian had to shush us as if we were children.

I feel so foolish for not having noticed her earlier. She's a brilliant woman who's challenged my ideas for the first time in memory. In truth, I don't know if she's feeling as exhilarated as I am right now. But I dare say our conversation was mutually stimulating.

For the first time in a long time, I find myself thinking about something else besides my research. I hope she returns for another round tomorrow.
