Hey, everyone! Cory here, and thanks for reading my SCP! I'd like to thank Zyn for all the help she gave me in making this article, as without her guidance it would likely not have seen the light of day. Also, you can thank EldritchCadence, ghostpage, SpectralDragon, Jekeled, Cimmerian, WrongJohnSilver, shayshay, Docmaster16, MegalomaniacInchworm, DrJets, Green_Smith, and everyone else for all their opinions and corrections in chat while it was being written. You're the best!
The image was taken from Wikipedia and is of Mont Blanc de Cheilon, a mountain in the Alps. The photo falls under Creative Commons (and is thus safe to use) and was found by Cimmerian. So there you go, something else to thank them for.
This is probably something this website gets a lot, but this is my first article. I was understandably quite nervous writing, since I wasn't sure my idea was even good enough! My original idea still had the basics it did now, but was meant to be more troubling and didn't have a real story to it. I did have quite a bit of fun writing; as formal as I tend to be in real life, writing in the very scientific tone an SCP article demands was a unique challenge.
After asking around, I got early approval on my idea and began writing on my own. Later, when asking for criticism, Zyn met me and proposed a collaboration. Working with her helped me learn a lot about what writing a good SCP is about, and helped me get around a misconception I held about them: SCPs aren't always terrifying, or deadly, or even strange: but they do fall outside the purview of our world, even if they can be found endearing (though a lot of them are a combination of those first three). Finding the lack of positivity in the SCP articles makes me happy to know I could write a bit of fresh air into an article. As much as the articles that haunt your sleepless nights are what I love to read, knowing the Foundation isn't all bad makes some of my favorite articles.
I'm completely open to questions and constructive criticism, so ask away! I may also write supplementary material for the article at some point, if you're interested in that. For now, let's just be happy I finally have the article posted. Thanks again!
