SCP-2598

It's a moth! Wearing a helmet! Which repeatedly divebombs your face… in Morse code.

I really want to see how you interpret something like that :D

What happened in 2009 that was so eventful for you?

Dont much like this one.
Downvoted, but I do enjoy the note about the algae.

I noticed that on this that there seems to be a bit of a double standard when it comes to what people ask for in an SCP. On the one hand, it's an oft-repeated piece of advice that the writer's focus should always be on the story of the SCP, not on the effects. On the other hand, it's equally common for someone to say that they downvoted because the effects weren't interesting enough, even if the story was nice.

That's what inspired this piece. The anomalous effects are fairly unremarkable, comparatively speaking, but you get the guy's life story and learn all the creative uses he found for his abilities throughout the years.

Also of note: even though Herman Fuller's Circus of the Disquieting has grown into a full-blown GoI, it was originally envisioned as a limited set of interconnected articles. Folks are still welcome to contribute as they like, but as far as my stuff goes, this is number 5 of 7 in the series. There will be two more after this, and then I'll be done with the Circus.

Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, Act 4, Act 5.

Obligatory "What happens when you put it through 914?"

Yes, I rather suspected the word count might be a problem. I can cut it down relatively easily, but my first inclination was to try for precision.

The Foundation's interest in this artifact lies not in the 1,018 internal pages or the anticipated description of unknown SCPS, but in the very troubling contents of the last page, which I suppose I didn't do a very good job expressing. Lamentably, the sentence summarizing this last page has been blacked out, so the reader might not necessarily be impressed by the gravity of its meaning. I hope to convey the understanding that although you yourself might not know what it says, the officers overseeing the operation do and believe the staggering loss of life their project necessitates to be worthwhile.

I recommend The Supernaturalist.

I agree with Azzleflux that series connecting SCPs could make an interesting topic for discussion - as well as the relevance of worldbuilding within the Foundationverse. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing a tales related discussion. More people should read tales. :P

I've read the first four Artemis Fowl books, And Another Thing, and this thing he wrote about a gangbanger coming back from the dead to help this old man she tried to rob or carjack or something get his life in order. Has he written anything else?

Upvoted despite not knowing what the lead alloy and titanium are supposed to do.

You know, I just listened to the pilot scodpast and gdi Roget it's "Zin" not "Zine" why do you even say "Zine" I don't even

Pretty entertaining listening to the jar of toenails and Keter cakes bits though.

I like the story behind this one. It would make a great short story on its own.

Maybe I'm missing something but is there a reason that "Incident Report #178-14-Alpha" is missing?

by cfcannoncfcannon, 29 Jul 2014 21:00

I'm just gonna start by saying that throwing D-Class at something because it might have valuable information about potential SCP's is probably not something the Foundation would do in its current incarnation. Especially with the general rapidity with which you would blow through them. 12 pages is approximately the limit? How many D-Class do you think they're going to go through on a daily basis?

Let's crunch some numbers on this. Of the 66,101 relevant pages, 1,825 contained information relevant to the Foundation. That's about a 2.7% chance of getting a relevant page on any given turn. A D-Class can turn about 12 times before he gets dead. Statistically, they would need to kill 3 people to possibly learn a single piece of information of relevance. Even the D-Class aren't THAT expendable.

Secondly, holy hell is this incredibly…verbose. To the point where it's difficult to read. You need to cut down the unnecessary words in there, or people aren't going to bother with it. If you're going to quantify every detail, then put them into lists or find another way to cut down on the words. I half-skimmed this article because I couldn't focus on all of those walls of text.

I'm not going to comment on the actual idea, because as I said, I largely skimmed, and am probably not the best judge besides. But seriously, those two things should probably be dealt with.

I have a couple of ideas for Anderson that I might turn into a few tales or maybe a skip in the future, but for the time being I'll just let you guys wonder.

Cue the evil laughter.

by Jacob ConwellJacob Conwell, 29 Jul 2014 20:49

After reading all these tales, I can only wish to know more about Anderson and, as Waterfire, feel sorry for #31.

Excellent job. 5/5, will read again.

And now I have to write about Peregrine. :_3

Upvoting every issue of the story arc. Congratulations, it's beautiful.
