Quick tale regarding Raven Mackenzie's recent SCP-1899. Just a random idea I had that I wrote up really quick, so I'll probably just take it down if people aren't feeling it.

I like the story, and the url/title dichotomy is pretty neat.
Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!
I've written a tale upvoted by Djoric, Bright, Echo, Yoric, Moose, VAE and Voct, fite me irl if you don't respect
Wait, is he freezing objects in time or is he stepping out of time altogether (stopping the whole universe)?
I'm iffy about a progression from the first to the second.
He could do both, but he eventually lost the ability to stop all of time.
This is just my personal musing. Mackenzie's the one who made this guy up, so she's the final authority, ultimately.
it's just that I've read quite a bit of rationalizing about temporal quirks.
Being able to manipulate time on a micro-scale is something (we can already do it)
Macro-scale is considered to be impossible (or, rather, unfeasible)
The work-around is for the observer to step out of time.
SCP and all, i know. It is, otherwise, a well done tale.
The whole "Stop all time in the rest of the universe" and "step out of time/speed my time up immeasurably" is kind of a moot point to the observer, in whose perspective this story is written.
The REAL problem comes with the fact that, logically, if you were to "stop time" on a single object, within a very small fraction of a second it would be *very* far away.
I like it, but it needs some copy editing. Most notably: "The police arrived before I could grabbed enough money, and I could only stopped their bullets this time, but I at least got away fine."
