I appreciate any and all feedback
As no one else has replied, I'm just going to say that this is pretty boring. It's an imaginary friend/ghost SCP that does little to really make us want to believe in it. The poor science in use here doesn't help, either.
Hello. I suppose you'd still like some critique? As Raven said, this is quite an uninteresting SCP, the idea seems very clichéd and obvious, and the tone of the writing isn't really up to the standard of this Wiki. I can't really give you much advice on tone, but I can try and help with grammar and science.
Thanks for the advice, I'm still fairly new and am trying to find "my style".
I made it a keter class because I was led to believe that keter means: "an object that, if set loose, could cause devastating damage/is very difficult to contain/requires a large amount of resources" and I figured that an entity that cannot be contained unless it is bound to a host is difficult to contain, and something that requires a regular supply of human hosts sounds like a lot of resources to me.
The idea behind the TV/books was that the host does not know that they are going to be food for an SCP so they need some basic entertainment facilities, also it takes longer for the SCP to "consume" the memories if the mind of the host is active.
I know the science is poor and the measurements wrong. I am not very good at judging distance. I realise now that "sciency" articles are not my thing so I wont do any more like that in future.
Thanks for the detailed critique, I shall try to take it on board.
If it has no interest in leaving a host, AND can travel through walls and a vacuum, why does there need to be a vacuum between the two rooms?
A lot of things don't work. Let me tell you what does:
"All staff members working with SCP-XXXX will be monitored at all times. Any signs of a "imaginary friend" must be reported."
That, right there. It is the only thing that works in my opinion, but WOW does it work. I'm picturing an innocuous workplace sign, somewhere in a break room: "All Instances Of Staff Interacting With Imaginary Friends Must Be Reported To A Supervisor Immediately."
Scrap everything else and go with something based off of your one line. If you can pull it off, go the 'frightening by seeming so harmless' route.
Thanks for the advice but I'm scrapping the idea. If you feel you can make it work then go for it you're welcome to give it a try.
I have been thinking and have I a new idea for something different, look out for my thread sometime today.
