Before I invest too much time and strain on this, there was a recent SCP that was taken down, forgot the number but it was the one that dealt with the venus statue that caused all sorts of havoc. I really liked the idea and was thinking about re-doing it, before it was taken down. But before I waste time on it, I wanted to be sure that it would be alright to go back to an idea that I personally felt I could do something with and redo it. If this thing is still up, I digress and apologize for missing it but I still wanted to run the idea past any admins before I waste any time. I can have a rough draft done probably by tomorrow and I will post a link from sandbox when it is up. But let me know if this is okay first. Thank you for your time and consideration, Gentleman, ladies, and others.
Saving an SCP is usually not something taboo, and as long as the writing and idea are improved, it may stick. I believe that the problem with that one was the gratuitous rape, so keep that in mind. Also, in order to do a rewrite, you should consult the original author (I have no idea who that is though).
Personally, I liked that one too. I'd like to see someone else rewrite it. Hope it sticks this time.
Yeah I have no idea who the author is/was either unfortunately. And yeah I agree the rape angle really didn't add anything to the SCP. So that was something I was going to nix w/the rewrite and find a better picture and change a few other things as well. I'll go for it and hopefully once I put the link to my draft up, the higher powers can give me a better idea of whether or not this will fly but at least there is some support for this. If I remember correctly, someone did mention if anyone wanted to rewrite this, they could go ahead. I will try for now and see how it goes.
Here is what I came up with. If its good w/edits of course I will put it up. BTW, forgive a noob question but I can't seem to get the picture up I want to use w/the floating txt. Any help would be welcome
I think this shares some of the problems of the first entry. The part I like best is that the figure is born. I don't care for the mother's transformation or the extraneous deviant sexual activity. Perhaps the figure has a mommy and daddy who love each other very much, and after it is born, they cherish it and take good care of it. Others who see it eventually become very fond of it as well. After a while the mommy and daddy end up being the high priestess and priest of a fertility cult of a group of people who love each other very much, and very often as well. If they eventually make a few blood sacrifices, it is only done out of the love and deep respect they have for the figure and each other.
Contact the original author and get permission, they can be found here. (Thanks, scratskinner)
I think this idea in general has potential. I like the picture you used much better than the original.
I still kind of like the transformation but I took your advice, removed the deviant angle and added a little to it. And I was hoping the picture would turn out good, I looked for a good long time to find a creepy enough Venus.
The picture is wonderfully organic and creepy, like a skinless roast chicken, It looks like something that was born, not carved.
The figure seems Safe, not Euclid. Just lock it in a box, pour some blood in, and forget about it.
The transformation is creepy, but it needs to add to the story.
There is potential with this one. I will be happy to give feedback, but get permission to use the idea first.
There are a lot of things that are begging for downvotes if submitted in this form.
I sent the creator a message and am waiting for them to get back to me. I'll change the object class later. And that status is kinda organic/. It was carved out of a mammoth bone, so yeah that is why I like it. I know the article needs work, I'm pretty bad at formatting but I'll work on it more once I 'hopefully' hear back from the creator.
Okay, original author has been contacted and approval has been given. The final rewrite is done and SCP-1116 is up. I do hope this one does okay. I am still willing to rewrite if it needs more work. http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-1116
