Let's keep criticisms to any problems with the story, shall we?

i don't get why there would be problems with the title.
Overly obvious and kinda stupid?
I don't know. I just figured there'd be a few complaints about it.
If it'll make you happy, I'll complain about it.
I like the concept more than I'd expected to, but I kind of wish it wasn't so obvious from the start (that obviously includes the title).
I hope to someday see an SCP that follows this odd parameter you've set up. A horrific ████████ exists in the world, doing its horrible things without the public knowing of its existence. We want to capture and contain it, but doing so would reveal its existence to the public, so we can't.
This gets an upvote for being fun, but an SCP (obviously not Death) that follows that parameter would get all my upvotes for being spectacular.
I can't remember who but I vaguely recall somebody saying they would make a shape-shifter SCP that would be the president - which obviously can't be captured.
Um… Adams? The Silence from Doctor Who? I suppose it makes sense that you don't know, seeing as none of us can… what was I talking about?
The silence episode singlehandedly put the ratings of the youtube lunar landing videos through the roof
I bet the moon landing denial trolls are doing their nuts
pfft… easy enough to off the President and pin it on a lone gunman. I'm sure the Foundation's done it before. I was thinking more along the lines of a "something" that maintains seemingly natural order in the world/universe (kinda like Death), the capture of which would result in a total meltdown of everything. Rushed example: Aphrodite exists, attempts at containment result in global destabilization of human relationships. O5 decides its best to leave her be since she lies low anyway.
Doctor Who is one of those shows that I've heard too much about to possibly want to watch, ever. It's like "Friends", the more people talk about it, the more it makes me sick to even consider seeing an episode of it.
LORD, WHAT CAN THE HARVEST HOPE FOR, IF NOT THE CARE OF THE REAPER MAN?
Still think there should be a mention of vast overpopulation. Though I still like the reasoning you have in there anyway.
I don't think they contained it long enough.
I've read a couple of "we've defeated death" stories. I like this one because I can see someone at the Foundation doing something they exactly shouldn't "For the Greater Good!" and/or "For SCIENCE!"
Well, looks line the containment is being reversed before that becomes an issue.
There's also a little thing about antibiotics, those substances kill bacteria. No death, antibiotics become ineffective, but the patiend cannot die from the infection (no matter how much they may want to)…
Death for unicellular and multicellular organisms is different. Would each and every cell of a human body stop dying?
Conversely, would an artificial intelligence running on a computer be undeletable?
Hm. this is giving me an idea.
Why is it they contained death and nobody just thought to let it into a cell with 682- it would be cool to see the lizard have a fight to the death with… well, death.
Can't see either of them being able to win
Hey, how long was death in containment before e was released?
I'd say… a week, maybe two. It just took the higherups a while to get everything sorted out to release him and kill off Sheridan.
I don't know about this one. The concept is interesting, but the style is a bit stilted — it's all tell and no show, if you'll pardon the cliche. I found it too jarring to upvote.
SCP Wiki Administrator | Earth: We're all in this together.
This. Style too awkward to upvote. No vote for now.
edit: and downvoted, because I have a high bar for stories about Death and this just does not clear it.
While I'll admit it is a little awkward (and will take any suggestions to make it less so), I don't think this whole thing would work with show. I mean, if we actually got to read firsthand about all of the things described, I feel it would move us into the territory of unbelievability. As it stands, second-hand accounts are, in my opinion, the best way of going about the whole affair.
