I sandboxed something I had in the back of my mind for a while. It's not intended to be put up as an SCP at this moment, just an attempt to capture the right tone and style should I actually try to write one. Any criticism of my writing, choice of words, grammar, tone etc. appreciated.
Some of the tone seems too conversational and not quite clinical enough, but I don't see any major spelling/grammar problems.
I can't speak as to Wiki policy, but I get the impression that describing the sexual mutilation of a child, even if it is mostly blackboxed, wouldn't be acceptable material.
Yyyyyeah that kind of thing is best left unsaid, like 110-Montauk which is an annoying puppet show for all we know.
The object itself doesn't really do anything for me, a window that lets you watch murders is pretty tame on its own and trying to spice it up with some shock value isn't going to help, I don't think.
As the others have said the shock value is just unnecessary. Not to mention that we have plenty of windows that look into other things.
Which is a problem in itself. Listed SCP cliché: "household objects that do exaggerated versions of their typical functions". A window that helps you look at stuff isn't a good start.
So…tone issues and less Saw, more In The Mouth of Madness. Thanks for the replies. As I said, not going to put it up, just trying to see if I'm getting it right. It'll be scrapped and I'll put something else up for critiquing. :)
