I also want to mention that the fridge can inly teleport when outside of someone's direct line of sight, but can teleport when you see it from the corner of your eye, and will try to run if you turn to look at it.

Realistically, unless somehow needed for containment, the Foundation would most likely take away all of his personal belongings, so I don't see much of a point in describing them. Specially when all he can do is set himself on fire. This is a being they can actively put in a box, not some paranormal occurance or something of the like.

Now, taking away the detailed description of how he looks, this idea suffers from the X-men syndrome. He can choose when to set himself on fire, not suffering any damage from it, and I assume he can put it out himself. So what? You need more. It's not about what the object in containment is, but rather what you wanna make the reader feel in your article.

Btw, what I mean with X-men syndrome is that it reads like a superhero character, mostly because he can control the anomaly. People with what looks like to be powers like your dude are often frowned upon, but if written correctly (this needs talking more than "this dude can do this at will") then there's no problem with staying on the site

This could have potential if you expanded on the figure that appears when you wear the headband, as it is though it's just dull.

This reads like a series one skip. It doesn't seem to have any narrative whatsoever and it's laden with grammatical errors and lapses in clinical tone.

Downvote.

I would be lying if I said SCP 294 had no inspiration regarding my idea, but I'd also be lying if I said I haven't made any attempt to make it unique to 294. 294 is very easy to use: You type words in and you get what you ask for, always in the liquid form - or molten form if applicable - of what was asked for. If two subjects use 294 with the same request, it will always produce the same results. The "Psychic Shampoo" isn't nearly as reliable. If two subjects use it with the same request, it's very likely two different results will occur because not everybody thinks in the same way.

Going back to my "gold" example for a moment: If you request "gold" from 294, you will receive a cup of molten gold every time with the same properties. If you request "gold" from the shampoo, you could receive:

  • Fluid with gold flakes inside.
  • Fluid just dyed gold.
  • Fluid containing urine.

…and other potentially unexpected results, because as I said: not everyone thinks in the same way, consciously or subconsciously. Rather than interpreting digital inputs, it has to interpret thoughts, which aren't always reliable. If you were to request "magic" from 294, it might not be able to produce anything, and if it did it would always be the same. If you were to request "magic" from the shampoo, the fluid might float, might glow or might cause whoever it touches to start shooting lightning from their hands while breathing fire, fluently chanting in ancient languages.

tldr: both SCPs will interpret requests with a different process. When you change the process, you change the result, which adds variety and uncertainty to each experiment and use of the SCP.

Welcome to the site socksNsandalssocksNsandals! Glad to hear that SCP is one of the few communities you have joined!

For hashing out concepts head over to the Ideas and Brainstorming forum. You can also get greenlights here, which is needed before making a thread for your draft on the Drafts and Critiques forum. Remember to check the stickied posts in the relevant thread for guidelines on how best to use each forum. The forums can be slow sometimes, just be patient You can also try the IRC chat for real-time feedback.

From site usage to writing tips, the Guide Hub contains a wealth of resources geared towards helping members produce successful articles.

The more time you take to familiarize yourself with the SCP style, the drafting process, and the community, the greater your chances are for success!

As far as reading is concerned, you might want to check out our Top Rated New Pages, which will display the most popular, recent articles. It's helpful to keep up with what's being received well by the community.

I wish you luck on creating a successful article!

There has been several times where I have read a tale or article and I really like it, to the point where some point in the future i may wish to read it again but I can't find it. Would it be plausible to create a feature on every page (similar to the rating module or a button at the bottom of the page) where you can add the page to a favourite list which can be easily accessed. Additionally the reader may be able to add a short note next to the page to briefly sum it up for future reference when scrolling through their list of page titles.

Favourites list? by Doctor WazzicDoctor Wazzic, 22 Jul 2019 20:01

Hello! I just joined a few days ago and I'm now realizing that I probably should've posted an introduction here a while ago. Anyways, I'm socksNsandals, or Socksy. I think I found the SCP Foundation through a meme somewhere to be honest, but I absolutely love the works here. I'm hoping to write a few of my own and actually contribute something here. I'm a major lurker, to the point where I don't even have an account on some sites I browse. I'm hoping this site will be an exception.

I love computers or anything tech-related, outer space, knitting, and I always need more. plants.
I like any kind of SCP really, just as long as it's written well.
I've already posted a few ideas to the Ideas and Brainstorming Forum, which I probably should've waited on, but oh well.
So here I am, I look forward to writing here!

Dafriq?

An eccentric billionaire stops you on the street and offers you $1 million if you can tell him a fun fact that is interesting, verifiable, and that he's never heard before. What do you tell him?

This pitch lives or dies based on the why. It's fairly sinister for a car with darkened windows to be constantly parked near you or near a building you're visiting, like a stalker, but that's not massively anomalous. The car disappearing spontaneously or being impregnable is anomalous, but not anomalous in a novel, interesting way.

What I think you should explore is: Whose car is it? Why were they parked there? Are they in the car or have they left it and gone elsewhere? Are we sure it's a car, not something else which looks like a car? What kind of wild unauthorized areas does this car show up in? What is all of this leading up to?

Took changed into account, re-wrote some sections, fixed gramatical errors.

Welcome to the site DemasuDemasu! Don't worry, you'll figure out what you want to do sooner or later.

If you want to keep up with the latest material, check out the Most Recently Created page. If you'd rather check out only the most popular new articles, then Top Rated New Pages is the way to go.

While you're browsing, if you find an article you absolutely love, you can try finding more from the same author by looking them up on the Authors' Page hub. If the user in question is not on that list, you can try searching for them on our statistic site, scpper.com.

If there are some SCPs that you're a fan of, you can try checking out a new addition to the wiki: the SCP Series Tales List. These are pages that mirror the main SCP listings, but they include all the stories that feature each SCP.

With the amount of SCPs we have, it can be hard to find really good articles in specific genres, so ShaggydredlocksShaggydredlocks with the help of various community members made some User-Curated Lists

This is the SCP article that inspired me to want to make an SCP monster manual because combating debris house wreckage monsters sounds very Foundation imo.

Was recommended this one from a co-worker. Was a good read, definitely creepy from start to finish.

by toadking07toadking07, 22 Jul 2019 18:52

I tried to find a way to fix that, I really did. I may republish this in the future but for now it’s stayiny up so I’m happy with that. I wanted to find a way to make the story more interesting and actually hook the reader but I really ran out of ideas. I wanted to not be so on the nose but I mean this is my fourth time posting this and probably my 9th draft version. I’ve been at this for awhile honestly.

Imagine if a kid asked to be one of the O5 council. Lived anomalously for hundreds of years and gained sensitive information on the foundation.

Actually I can see now how the origins story is messed up and inconsiderate towards the transgender community. My dearest apologies to those offended by the thread. Not my best moment, admittedly. Over and out;-)
