Okay, the basic idea I have for this SCP is a sheet or sheets of paper containing a single poem that, when read, causes the reader to speak in nothing but rhyme from then on. I think I could up the creepiness factor by making the victim also unable to write or even read anything else without rhyming, though I'm still trying to keep it out of joke-SCP territory. Any suggestions?
That's creepy enough quite frankly. You could make it so that if a person stays around an 'infected' enough they start talking in rhyme too, unconsciously.
On subject: Arthur: Rhyme for your life.
I wonder if it would be better for the victims to be either completely unaware of their condition, or extremely aware of it to the point that it drives them completely insane.
Actually, I think I just answered that question myself >_<
Do we really need another scp that drives people completely insane?
I like the unaware option better.
Feast, jackanape! Eat hearty while you can!
Upon your neck's the breath of ETRIGAN!
Would people just be rhyming or would things like meter and structured poetry ever come into it?
Gone gone oh form of man, and rise the demon Etrigan!
