Okay. I'm nothing if not supportive of my public.

I would comment, but you summed up my thoughts perfectly. Anything more would be redundant.

Giving bearhugs to the unsuspecting since 1872.

Wilhelm_Messerschmit: That's not a problem in this article. This is not helpful critique. Be more substantial next time.

It's not a good idea to take a well-known phenomena and treat it as a straight SCP without any kind of twist or interesting take. -1

There's a lot of potential here, but something just feels…off. I'm not sure. Neutral vote for now; I like the idea of someone dying and coming back piecemeal, though.

I don't know, it's not bad but it's not great either. My interest never piqued and this isn't my type of SCP. I have a few things you could fix but this needs more substance.

Didn't you have another SCP?

Wasn't Right (the character) pregnant once? I remember reading a reference to that on tvtropes once.

The Foundation's interest in using SCP-939 for synthesizing amnestics would provide support for the original method of making them very expensive. Though it's also possible that the lower grade amnestics where you just fudge their memory a bit and provide a plausible cover are far cheaper than what you'd need to explain away the portal openning up.

Poor Lombard. To get with the discussion, it's like the radioisotope said: it's all headcanon, but, for me, at least, it's also about involvement. For example, a desk clerk who doesn't ever see SCPs probably can have a family, but in-too-deep researchers and agents like the above linked Lombardi or Dr. Clef don't even exist anymore. I have a tale in my sandbox wherein an Army veteran who was recruited by the Foundation sends his death letter to his parents ("Dear Mom and Dad, if you're reading this, I'm not coming home," etc.) because the Foundation faked his death in order to recruit him.
As far as pregnant women are concerned, there are SCPs that straight-up destroy fetuses, and pregnancy usually inhibits one's ability to do physical work, so I'd think they get maternity leave, with the very involved ones either having their tubes tied to prevent the issue or having to give up the kid, probably with amnestics issued to prevent them being all sad and shit.
But, again, it's all how you decide to interpret it.

I can't remember the numbers off-hand, but I know that there are several SCPs that specifically note that pregnant women are not allowed within the radius of effect. So I assume that they're allowed to work there, just not hands-on.

My personal headcanon is that inter-personnel relationships are discouraged, but not forbidden. Same thing w/ kids: you're not allowed to work on projects that have effects on fertility/pregnancy/kids.

As for the secrecy thing, my headcanon is that all researchers with public lives work for Foundation fronts and aren't allowed to discuss it with non-Foundation employees. And even then, they're strongly encouraged to sever ties to the outside world

Giving bearhugs to the unsuspecting since 1872.

I'll be honest, the photo caught my eye and originally I thought this would be at least decent. But this is WAY too short for it to hold my attention, if you were to put much more detail into the description and maybe actually telling us what it did instead of black boxing it would make people interested in the SCP, if you were trying to make it mysterious then black boxing what it can do just makes it's boring, instead try black boxing or [REDACTED] on events that would've happened after say it found and attack prey.

Example (New member but this is just some advice based off some other articles)
SCP-2075 goes into it's hunting state when it senses prey (hence referred to as SCP-2075-1), SCP-2075 will lunge at the SCP-2075-1 and proceed to [REDACTED]. The husk of SCP-2075-1 is left, husk have no anomalous properties other then [REDACTED].

Though I'm sure this isn't the best example, [Redacted] vs black box are used for different things, black box is generally used for censoring names, places, or dates. [REDACTED] is more for information that isn't technically required to be known about the SCP, it leaves a bit of mystery for the reader, this is just my 2 cents.

First time I've logged on to comment and upvote in ages. Must say it's almost entirely because of the 'how it was discovered bit' and that you pulled that off very well in my opinion.

Summary: That was uninteresting. Below are some specific points that bugged me but other than that this failed to arouse any interest in me whatsoever.
