I like the idea of folkloric figures and items as SCPs, and I really like this particular article, but it didn't give the chills like other ones do. Still an interesting read, though.

it needs work still, i admit. I wrote this during a period of sleep deprivation, and looking back now i see bits I'd like to touch up. I personally find the idea of a old lady ripping off and eating the limbs of someone who's tripping too hard to resist or notice pretty creepy, but that's me.
I tried to pay homage to the Baba Yaga myth while having it make a (limited) amount of sense in the "real world". I'll probably end up brushing it up a bit, and maybe doing some support documents.
Except for the consideration of waste of resources (babies), it's fine as is.
Does she have any useful knowledge?
Well…she's been alive a long time, but she's so damned violent and hard to understand, it's hard to find out if she has any special knowledge. I'm thinking they're holding on to her in the hopes of somehow using/synthesizing the hallucinogenic enzyme, or somehow trying to use her like Able. Being as she views most human beings as prey…that's not real likely.
That being said, I have a odd attachment to 352…I want to try and use her in a story, somehow…
This is great, I really like it. But honestly it seems a bit strange for the Foundation to go to the trouble (not to mention the ethical complexity) of procuring dead babies when we can just step up the security measures instead.
Can't the Foundation simply use 604 to create an infinite supply of human baby meat? That's what I tought they were using to feed her after I read the last addendum.
They didn't reference it, but I always thought they used that than actually murdering babies.
Maybe we have D-class babies.
Ugh, that thought creeps me out worse than almost all SCPs.
That's just… weird.
Necropost: What, is it taboo to mention the results of abortions? Not trying to make a bad joke here; it makes sense.
D-Class babies. What would they have done to get into the prison system? (I know we have other ways of getting D-Class but still, that's the 'official' method.)
You think aborted Fetuses actually get thrown away? Or that SIDs is real? Nah, we have something going on with the hospitals.

Even though it's an old article, I feel obliged to downvote the shit out of it because the author did not do the research.

I admit, i am not as acquainted with the Baba Yaga legends as i would like to be. I boldly and freely swiped the name, because to me it made sense for The Foundation to do so. She's a old lady, she acts like the classic fairy tale witch, she was found near Russia, so let's call her Baba Yaga. I was shooting for a "this COULD be one of those things were a myth has a real-life root", but may have missed the mark.
Dammit, i still need to do a story with her…
Alright, alright…now, the question is, should it be more of a dramatic type one, with action stuff and so on, or something more dry and cerebral?
Why not both?
…dammit…because i don't have enough going on….
I'm thinking a actual story, and a log-type thing. It's going to be hard, as the one thing i really can't do is dialog. You can check, most of my stories have as little back-and-forth speech as possible…oh well, gotta try and break free sometime…
This didn't do much for me until I read the last addendum. I just skipped over it, then I suddenly paused, and went "Wait. Wait. WHAT." It just perfectly demonstrated the levels of depravity the Foundation will sink to if they think its for the greater good, especially in the way it was written so matter-of-fact.
Just had the worst idea ever…
this and 106 out loose in the same area…lordy…
Also…i forgot about the story for her, but i remember now, and will hopefully get a good idea for it soon.
They catch each other's eyes from across the hall and fall in love. Then 106 invites 352 out on a romantic, candle-lit, infanticide spree. Then they get married and have lots and lots of decrepit, predatory babies.
A heart-warming romance, indeed.
