Taelon, just to note that I don't think this is anywhere near ready for posting yet. Someone with more time will be able to give you a line-by-line, but here are my high level thoughts:

  • the underlying idea is okay (although not such a twist that it can support that length of build-up, or the initial warning), and the conundrum you pose for the Foundation is good. I suggest concentrating on that angle - for example there is almost nothing in the Containment Procedures that attempts to deal with the skip's primary effect.
  • the characterisation of the skip is very weak. As a moustache twirling villain baiting the Foundation, she is a walking cliché. And her style of speech sounds like a modern teenager, rather than something non-human that has lived for thousands of years. If you keep the interviews at all, I would re-write every line of her dialogue, and would make the process of revelation quicker.

Simply because there hasn't really been a need for it, and because that tag doesn't really fit the detail level of tags at the moment. Ectoeentropic for example, is also reality bending.

The final instance of the Administrator is intended to be you; as SCP-001 is active, you cant refer to yourself by any noun other than "the Administrator". The password you used to access the file is the phrase that activates the phenomenon.

In regards to the expository letters, I'll see what I can do to replace them, although I can't guarantee I'll come up with anything better. Do you have any suggestions for what I should do instead?

It's quite an interesting idea, but at the moment the draft doesn't have enough "kick" for my taste - the anomaly isn't very dramatic (for a few paragraphs of the Description it seemed like it was just invisibility) and not very much happens over the course of the story. I think you're on the right track by looking to develop the entity's personality - give it more of a desire, or a crisis to face, perhaps?

Since the dawn of humankind, the humble spoon has been used as a test of one's telekinetic ability. Indeed, the very first thing that the mother of modern telekinesis, Ur, used her telekinesis for was to pick up an iron-bearing boulder, shatter the ore, and heat it with her mind to mold a more reliable "bending hardness" material with which one could accurately gauge their power over thin sticks with a bowl attached to one end. This was the first metal spoon. Also, the first metal. It was not until the rein of the Egyptians that the spoon's reliability in the transportation of edible products submerged in flavorful, heated liquid, the trait that the uninitiated most associate with the spoon today, was ever discovered. Even now, however, when metal forks, knives, and even chopsticks are widely available, we still rely on the humble spoon and its amazing bendyness to tell us just how powerful our minds truly are.

And then Yakov Smirnoff had to ruin it by making a telekinetic spoon.

I read all the guides and tried to follow them, but I cant shake the nagging feeling that I have made plenty of creative mistakes along the way. Looking for critique and help

The link:

It cannot be contained. If it were to collapse, they don't know what would happen to it, or if it would live.

Those classes are for difficulty of containment combined with danger, not danger alone.

*shifty eyes.* Argent, huh? … You know Argent is a synonym for Bright, right?

Yeh, I may have used that for some of the Bright offshoot family.

*Looks at my tales*

Yes. Family can work together. After all, we want the best… and if the best runs in the same family, who are we to turn one down simply because we already have a family member working for us?

I also see nepotism happening, but less of the unqualified people getting jobs, but, well, keep it in the family, because they already know, or are most likely to be told.

The addendum is what sold it for me. Sure, he accidentally hit "submit" - and then someone approved the file for publication as an official document. "Who maintains our database, lobotomized monkeys?"

How could I forget this.

When I hear this, I picture a researcher being overwhelmed and losing their mind trying to comprehend the anomalous stuff that surrounds them.

Yea, though I walk through the lowest rated pages, I will fear no coldpost: for thou art with me SCP Wiki; thy mods and thy staff they comfort me.- Proxymoron

Contrary to what my bio says, Tool and SOAD are by far the greatest music artists to have existed.

In that case, this is my theory:
Memetic kill agents usually (Note the usually) work by exploiting one's experience with the horror, the unknown, and the feeling that one cannot do anything about it. As higher-level people usually have more experience dealing with these things, they are not as affected. Those with not enough experienced will be very shocked and do not stop thinking about that image. This can make it easier to catch people.
The "memetic innoculation" is simply a numbing of the senses, causing one to not comprehend what they are seeing. This allows people to access files without fully realizing what memetic agent they are seeing. This also can prevent one (maybe) from remembering and reproducing that image.

I don't know, this just feels like generic Herman Fuller crossed with a generic multi-flavor/effects Series I skip without too much of a charm. The execution is okay, but never makes me get over those two. This could somewhat work if you expanded on the actual backstory rather than the kid's stint at HF.

This time it made me laugh.
The downplayed snark here really sells it for me as something this guy hammered out while angrily eating a scorched, half frozen burrito and accidentally hit "submit to database"

I found it funny enough to upvote and have saved it for my own personal enjoyment even if it gets deleted.

Play that, then start an air-raid siren in the background as the intro ends. At least 10x better.
