I've got a concept for an SCP, but I thought I should get some advice before posting it anywhere.
First of all, I'd like to say that it's my express goal to create more "wierd" SCPs. Not objects that are necessarily dangerous or overly terrifying, but that seem to defy comprehension.
Second of all, my idea is for a book that describes all the different ways the world could end/already has ended. I don't think it'll actually be called the Fail-book; "Book of Endings" or some such seems a little more appropriate. I got the idea from thinking about all the different possible ways that the Foundation or some other group that is careless about handling SCPs could destroy everything.
My conception is of a massive, library-issue-dictionary-sized black book that, starting from around 6,000 BC and working up to the present, lists thousands upon thousands of XK-class end-of-the-world scenarios and how they occurred, with a little blurb about the history and aftermath of each catastrophe and the words "The End" at the conclusion of each blurb. Many of these will refer directly to SCPs like 008, 722, or 882, but others will describe more straightforward things like a biological war or nuclear exchange. There could also be instances of LESS likely things, such as a giant planet-eating alien, the spontaneous transportation of Earth into a different reality, or the sun suddenly going out for no apparent reason. The many Endings will become more frequent as time goes on, with the last 6th of the book solely dedicated to the 20th century. Just for kicks, almost all of the more recent entries describe situations where the Foundation failed to contain something.
Obviously, if you're alive to read the book, these events (probably) cannot have actually happened. However, none of the entries describe how the apocalypse was averted, or even IF it was averted. You can't write in the book; ink, coal, and graphite just don't adhere to the pages. The book is self-updating, and more entries are added every year, with new pages spontaneously appearing from the ethers whenever more space is needed.
So, what do you think? Could this work? And, assuming it could work at all, what could I do to make it stranger?
