I like this article, but it could do without the "whoops it's actually super evil or something" addendum. If this gets deleted, I say rework it and focus more on the weirdness factor of an extra dimensional bird scientist thing that speaks nonsense-but-not-really nonsense.

It may not be the most original SCP ever, but you won back my +1 with the amusing banter of a not-so-sharp porcupine god from Joisey. (Read the logs in the voice of Tony Soprano and they become 300% more entertaining.)

A kooky talking animal is pretty par for the course, especially for DJ Kaktus. But whatever I enjoyed reading it so it gets a good boy point.

Favorite bit:

Video oddity is another one. (And it's fantastic.)

Zyn is just, like, the best. My only issue would be that a lot of her work implies things going downhill in a bad way, but that part never actually happens.

Von Pincier is a pretty great sci-fi author.

Max Landis needs to write more.

Gears is like, a god of creepypasta, and just spooky in general.

this is a better reference than the article tbh

Some tales come to mind, like Slipped Under the Door from Cell 142 and Healthy Child when it comes to tales based on nonexistent anomalies. Honestly, that's probably what made them more popular, since they provide mystery.

Let me direct you to this Tale: We Need to Talk about Fivty-Five

It involves SCPs and anomalous entities not officially classified by the Foundation, yet it is extremely engaging and dives into aspects of the Foundation's Anti-memetics Department.

And frankly speaking, since I think only a handful would've read and remembered every single last SCP, an unfamiliar SCP (or anomalous object) would not likely to have adverse effect on one's reading experience.

I wouldn't mind being part of this if its done again.

Dunno if this is the right place to ask, but…

Can tales be written successfully about skips that don't actually exist? I.E. a story which isn't based on a current skip?

Would most readers see it and think, "this isn't about any skip I know about" and vote accordingly/or is it quite normal and accepted to write stories about skips that arent established and aren't written by established authors?

You're only as good - or as bad - as your last skip.

any ideas on how i can make this less slenderman-ish?

Not really, sorry.

I wouldn't mind trying my hand at fleshing it it a bit. Maybe include an interveiw from someone who used the sword and was captured (because seriously. The foundation would have tasers.). Show it has some kind of mind-altering abilities. I'm sure something like this shouldn't be listed as 'safe'

Hooray for references. I was reading the article and thinking this would make a great crossover with 1845 and then I got to the logs and you'd already done it for me.

Also, I legitimately did a spit-take on the "dick-killer" line.

by SmaptiSmapti, 03 May 2015 10:46

In that case, I'm probably better going with a tale about someone using a copy of the book; writing its contents (ie the history of the Foundation) would be boring, even if done right, plus (and more importantly) it's way too easy to slip up on an important detail.

i tried to make a 3d model i'm not very good with 3d modeling so don't expect much

Pretty much the most vaguely blatant reference I've ever made, tbh.

In event of breach of containment, staff members are to brag loudly about their fighting ability and how they conquered mighty beasts.

You know what, this made me laugh.

P.S. Is the fox a reference to the Catholic animals?

by MrWrongMrWrong, 03 May 2015 10:25

E: figured out the image. As for the article, the one character that's provided here really isn't doing anything for me, other than giving its own unreliable recounting of its interaction with other anomalies. I'm not going to say it's bad solely because talking animal, because stuff like Pitch Haven exists— but the references and rudeness isn't enough.
