A humble little tale about my first ever SCP from years back. Love it or hate it… it definitely exists.

Wait, I don't get it, I thought the tree offspring only looked like they were human when they were born (and then grew into a new tree.) Also who approved of the Agent taking and raising an SCP's offspring in a non contained setting? It just seems like a really really bad idea to let some random Agent take home a tree baby and raise it as his own son.
May want to re-read SCP-401, Boa Noah and Soullesshuman. It's all there in the manual.
As for the Level 0 thing… I'll make a tiny tweak to the tale to make that work.
This breaks my suspension of disbelief. I do not believe that this would happen in the Foundation universe. And it offers nothing beyond that.
I'm upvoting on concept instead of execution; the prose is slightly clumsy, and the dialogue strikes me as rather abrupt and too directly expository. But it's enough to do the job, and, ~vicious haters~ aside, I think it's sort of sweet.
As far as suspension of disbelief goes, eh. Obvious discrepancies in everybody's various headcanons notwithstanding, I've never understood the perspective that there is some kind of "expanded universe" that we're all trying to operate in with our tales. The Foundation is just a narrative tool to enable stories, be they SCPs or otherwise, and holding it to some consistent scope, level of competence or set of values - to the point that it stops being evocative and starts being static "source material" - seems, with due respect to others who seem to feel different, wrong-headed to me. Who gives a shit, really? There's a Looney Toons tale around here somewhere. If it works with the story, it should be able to be judged purely within the context of the story. None of this is supposed to be fan fiction. I certainly don't begrudge anybody an opposite perspective, but I think it's a rather narrow way of looking at things.
Anyways, two cents, opinions and assholes, so forth. +1.
This actually seems perfectly plausible in universe to me.
Although, honestly, I suspect an ulterior motive among his supervisors; Investigating what happens when you expose SCP-401's human child to SCP-401 itself.
They've been experimenting on this kid since he was conceived, why would they pass up the opportunity?
(and the results of this experiment are actually quite interesting: SCP-401 recognises Randy Jr. as it's child, despite not previously having even known it had one)
