"Do nothing. If it's the right sort of nothing." - The Forth Doctor.

…And as the world's government's battle Keter-class threats with Safe-class measures, and the best thing most of us can do is follow The Doctor's advice…

Go for it! No one will shut your idea down for being similar, so long as you DO something different. Personal experience: 978’s appeal is from the tests. 5701’s appeal is from the discovery log. Because of this, both ideas can stand independently, even if both are instant cameras.

As for the greenlight, I would if I could. Sadly, I’m not OFFICALLY an author and I didn’t get recruited for a flight, so… yeah, the most I can do is say that you can keep going. You’re close!

Thank you so much! Going forward, I strive to make this skip the best that I can!
Take care!

Thanks so much for all the great feedback! This concept is still in its early stages, which is why it seems and is a bit lacking in depth. We'll take your suggestions into consideration, and make some changes. Thanks again!

Word count? I get it’s only 408, but that’s a MAX. The recommended word count would be well below this.

As for idea itself…

Deep? Yes, and that’s good. But complex? The description seems that way, and it could shut your idea down.

Narrative is execution heavy. Good luck!

Hook is convincing. Thumbs up!

Lots of ideas? Good! That’s depth, and we LOVE it here!

I would greenlight it, but I have a few words:

  1. Execution heavy. Get it right -> good article. Get it wrong -> BOMB. That said, this is an idea only, so no judgement.
  2. Not allowed to greenlight. Not your fault at all! That’s on me!… man I need to get a flight soon…

Keep it up! This has potential and I love it!

An oddly unique and interesting idea that was executed perfectly.

Awesome, thanks for the honorary greenlight! Just hope this gets a little more traction.

This was pretty much my reaction. The buildup and reveal that O5-7 is Loki are well-executed; after that, things just fizzle out. The first conversation makes it pretty clear that Loki would side with the Foundation if he had to pick a side, even though he doesn't spell it out explicitly. Everything after that went in the straight-line path you'd expect.

No greenlight from me. Sorry.

The idea pitch feels really close to the worst case scenario of “complex but shallow.” Try reading the Your Journey series to help get a good idea pitch. Also, what happens if 2+ people are in the room? Consider every scenario and work the traits around it. At least she's no X-man article.

Wait, so she was murdered, but her father got killed for not giving the ransom? You can’t charge ransom on a dead girl!

At least your hook is promising, but wouldn’t the Foundation catch on? At least start with the appearance trick, saying that no one knows what it is, but it looks like what you want it to be. Then get to the extras.

Okay, you don’t need the notes. It’s just unnecessary details that add nothing to the story.

You’re trying, and I respect that, but you need to restart. Again, I recommend Your Journey. You’ll get the hang of it soon!

Excuse the necropsy, but I thought of something I don’t think a lot have thought about, and it connects the two 1548 iterations (and this tale too).

Essentially, the last line “I don’t want to go.” can also be inferred as being destroyed by the entities mentioned in the new 1548 (the ones trying to invade the solar system) like all the other stars are being destroyed as well. Just something I thought of and maybe it’ll make it a little more interesting, but ofc it doesn’t have to be (bc there is no established canon ofc)

Do people even wish each other that? Either way, please enjoy this wonderful image I created, just for today.

Here, let me offer you a bag :P

Thank you very much!

This looks good, but not enough for a greenlight (not that I’m even allowed to give you one).

Pitch: Simple, and that’s a good thing! A little lacking on depth, but still promising. Try finding a way to add a little!

Narrative: THANK YOU FOR HAVING A STORY THAT’S REALISTIC! Seriously, many first-time authors forgo it entirely, and you’ve built one! Also simple, but still effective!

Hook: The praise ends here. Your hook is the same as your pitch? Really? Draw me in! Where did this come from? Was it made by something? Why?

Notes: Interesting that you decided to collaborate with someone on your first article! Go ahead!

Overall, you just need to add a hook to your idea. Intrigue me. If I only read ONE paragraph of the addendums, would I want to continue? Note that you //may/ have to rework your pitch or narrative to pull this off. Example: have the murderer make the meat locker himself to satisfy his killings, targeting the same victims over. And over. And over. That would be epic to see you try to do! Do more than just a cool idea! Make me react! Scare me if you have to!

You’ll get there!

The manner in which you laid out the article was spot on. Slowly building upon the initial idea without completely contradicting the previous iterations was very well done in not getting me confused on what exactly the anomaly was. I also really enjoyed the ending with O5-7 attempting to classify the object as Thaumiel but later going back and voting to decommission the SCP did a good job of showing who O5-7 really is.
+1 well done.

Okay, I kinda expected more than just "we're gonna decomission it." There's the revelation of O5-7 being Loki, but that doesn't really seem to go anywhere beyond him proposing that they use 194, which gets immediately shot down.

This feels old school. +1
