It's February already.

Who won?

I also would like to request to see the winner picture and story too. I still can't imagine that there's any story better than mine.  ;D

I haven't received either of your stories.

I posted my story here but got disqualified for releasing it too early.

Wait a minute...

Does that mean this contest was again a mock-up game and NZ has won already before it even started?  ;D

No, I haven't received anything from NZ, or anyone else for that matter. Maybe he submitted it to someone else. Also, Thomas, you are not disqualified, but your story consisting of a smiley and two words is.

C'mon people let's have some good writing! The deadline is still 9 days away!

I don't quite understand.

Does that mean that no one's submitted anything?? Everybody was just bragging around here??

Not even NZ?

Boys, boys, you got no chance. I'm going to win that beer!

I just noticed, the airport in that pic looks like Denver International.  Am I correct?

I think I've found enough time to start workin' on this...

... Now I just want some competition.  ;D
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Good call, Foil!

i've recieved NZ's entry... It's pretty darn good! (although there is some room for improvement... the ending is a little short.)

I don't know any type of advanced photoshopping techniques. The most advanced thing in my book that I just found out about was that you can click and drag each individual corner on a pic and slant it.

Story's short because I told it up to the point of the scene. BTW, I forgot to mention that there is music that you are supposed to be listening to while you look. That will go in the files section too.

So somebody other than me, Techpro, and Foil actually DOES visit that site! :P

I do. In fact, I tried to register a couple of times but could never log in. I would say I have read around 90%.

BTW, I forgot to mention that there is music that you are supposed to be listening to while you look. That will go in the files section too.

Hold off on that, I have something else in mind... ;)

Story's short because I told it up to the point of the scene.

Just seems, the story is going along pretty good, then the last sentence comes along and you didn't want to write anymore so you wrapped it all up in one sentence.

Is it too late to tweak it a little?

If not, I want to try to think of an 11th referance. ;)
