I have an idea for my first SCP, and I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to make it a reality.
This is based on the only reoccuring nightmare I ever had. When I was a kid, I'd dream that I was walking down a sidewalk with my parents. Suddently, I look up and my parents are far in the distance in front of me, still walking. No matter what I do, I can't reach them.
The way I envison this as an SCP, is a small zone, a few meters square, centered on an urban sidewalk. Any adult who enters the zone experiences a sense of unease and a strong desire to leave the area. They quickly loose all memory of anything that took place in the zone.
Any children who enter the zone, however, are trapped by some kind of force and are unable to be removed until deceased.
So, if a mixed group enters, the parents GTFO and forget they ever had children. The kids are trapped until they starve to death.
Containment would be a permananet blocked off construction area, with an agent or two dressed as a construction worker to keep neighborhood kids from climbing the fence.
My main conceptual problem with this: once a kid has been stuck, what is keeping the next adult that comes down the street from trying to save them?
So, that's the basic idea. I appreciate any suggestions.
