It was going somewhere, but it ended before it got to the intrigue. It feels pretty underwhelming due to that.

Another piece of antimemetics/counterconceptual mischief. Thanks to Athena_Gray, thekillerax, and MacLeod for looking this over. Big thanks to qntm for looking this over and helping me plan it out.
- "█████": a highly virulent anomaly with a mix of infohazard and antimeme properties. Highly dangerous to humans in general, but especially people on mnestics.
- SCP-i: i as in the square root of negative one, the "imaginary number." Was originally the documentation for █████ before becoming highly hazardous itself because of the subject matter.
- Liz Day: A humanoid antimeme. She works by de-aging people so that, from their perspective, certain memories never even formed.
- SCP-θ': An added layer of anomalous security to keep information about █████ and SCP-i hidden.
I don't think that Grey was at all physical. It was a purely informational construct. You can see that in the way that physical objects just pass through it.
Ehh…gonna stay neutral on the tale. I'm not quite sure what was going on exactly.
Also, Fae, where do you find those really cool copy and paste things: θ' and ‽

I found myself losing place in this story due to how long it is, and the boredom caused by it. It takes a long time to get into, and I'm sure to most casual readers would be bored with it fast and skip past it. It's a pretty cool story, to be honest, but it is much too long, so my advice is to shorten the story while maintaining the composure and writing. Until this is fixed, I will give a -1.
To those who think that the tale is a bit short, I would like to say that there is a reason that I didn't extend it. Unfortunately, I can't give my reason just at this moment, nor do I expect you to turn your vote around. I just wanted to say that I appreciate the feedback and am not ignoring it, just that there is reasoning behind my not implementing it.
My favorite types of tales are the ones that contain actual "SCP Documents" inside them (in this case the documentation of SCP-θ, which also gets bonus points because it's Keter (my favorite kind of SCP)). Did this one intrigue me? Yes it did.
Also, SCP-033 is one of my favorites and I like the implications that it's antimemetic (also my favorite type of SCP category).
In conclusion, this tale is now one of my favorites, and I totally understand why you didn't extend the tale (but I sure wish you did).
