If I may be honest, reading Mr Moon's story again gave me a chill. I'm still very happy with what you did to my Little Mister SCP. I do agree, his gimmick is definitely a drawback, but I thought it was fitting. It would fit in nicely in a children's book, I think.

Gotta say, I really like the idea behind fringe theories, but it needs more meat to work, particularly as a 001. The mechanism is really fuzzy (not memetic, but seems to behave similarly?), and the punchline is really abrupt. There need to be a few more O5-classified big-reveals, and they need to be have bit more impact. Perhaps start with theories that spawned individual SCPs, then build up to…. something. I would like to see this brought to fruition; thoughts?
So glad you included the commentary! I love hearing authors talk about their work (though that may only be because it serves as validation for my own desire to talk about my work). I'm very much looking forward to the Zachary Callahan backstory.
I loved The Invisible Fist. It definitely doesn't need much. I'd certainly give it an upvote in its current state.
I like the concept of the Invisible Fist too. Unfortunately, it's a tricky one to work. First off, there's probably literally no way to contain it short of destroying the stock market. Second off, the stock market is… weird. I don't really understand its workings, and not too many people do. Price has little to do with value, and there's some other stuff too, such as the fairly arbitrary choice of a lot of the underlying values. And I might be wrong about this. I'm not sure if there's anything I can do that's stranger than how it really works, or would be undeniably anomalous while still having a definable mechanism.
I was playing some Team Fortress 2 and found a guy whose name was Anaxagoras… He claimed he had no idea what the SCP Foundation was and just chose that name at random. Huh.
And if the whole world is crashing down… fall through space out of mind with me.
Well, if you look up the name, Google tells you that "Anaxagoras was a Pre-Socratic Greek philosopher. Born in Clazomenae in Asia Minor, Anaxagoras was the first philosopher to bring philosophy to Athens."
So what your saying is that some ancient Greek philosopher was playing TF2.
LilyFlower is cute and amazing <3
