Edit: SCP-1188 sandbox in progress Assuming this is even interesting to folks, I fear that I need to make it shorter to hold interest or present it with supplemental pages. Also worried about the situational humor attempt and how I reference several items of the Foundation. The humor is not meant to imply the Foundation is foolish enough to let either incident occur, rather, I hope to portray that a fairly innocent odd item may have more properties than first thought. [End of initial post edit]
Here is the very basic idea. The SCP object is a pen (for which I will attempt to find an interesting image). The object itself may or may not be the SCP, but certainly the ink would be.
The anomaly is that for anyone whom the pen is given to, it functions as a normal pen. However, if the pen is borrowed, the ink it produces would be a seemingly random fluid, and not necessarily ink. I am thinking of a correlation between the karma of the borrower (or loaner) to what comes out. When borrowed by Foundation personnel, I think it would be interesting to see to truly devious experimentation with disastrous side effects, and perhaps learn a thing or two about the D-class personnel.
I wonder what would happen if the pen was stolen?
The fluid itself might be dangerous, though not always immediately apparent, the messages it would write might not be what was intended. Pen could be sapient.
Who knows, maybe the pen could even have an inscription such as, "From the desk of Bobble" or some such. (provided an author interested in such collaboration).
Does this sound viably interesting? Is the scope too broad? And perhaps most importantly, what would be a good way to ensure this object could be suitably unique as compared to something like SCP-261?
Thank you in advance for feedback on my first Foundation idea.
