The Caption Contest



A question I am asked somewhat frequently nowadays is, "How do you keep getting into the Caption Contest"? While I have had relatively good success lately, I don't have any "secret" tips to guarantee myself a spot among the winning captions.

"Looney Lockewood" by ihailin
The street was a dead end, and the voice was following them down into the ally. Phalor nuzzled her neck into Shailayna's purple fluff, closing her eyes tight. Shailayna's ears twitched with each approaching footstep. She could smell the odd mixture of stale tea, dust, and dull cologne that reminded her of her great-grandfather. Phalor opened an eye just a crack, instantly regretting it. The mad old Buzz was glowering down at...

"King Paz" by emrozi
Pazniec wasn't really a king, but he felt as though he was. "King Paz"—it had a certain ring to it, didn't it? After all, if you were charged with writing the laws of Altador, you really were quite important.

My Name is Lavendrette: Part Two
"Okay then," Nisceron mumbled. "We'll be back by six—keep an eye on Clari, please?" Then, with a burst of chilly air that froze Lavendrette's bones right down to the marrow, and the not so subtle slam of the wooden door, the two Neopets were gone.
