Yeah I definitely learned something knew. Personally as a baby I had tubes in my ears so I'm so fucking afraid of anyone touching or messing with my sensitive ass ears to the point of nearly fainting when doctors have to look in my ears. I often think that this causes me to feel deaf, or hear people calling my name.
Worst case of EHS (and… Only case I guess,) was one time a couple years back I decided I'd turn my fan off while I was sleeping because it was too cold. I usually sleep to the noise of the fans so when my fan turned off and laid back down I think my ears flipped the fuck out for not hearing them and made this crazy WUMWUMWUM vacuum noise.

to be honest, the idea doesn't grasp me and just seems to try too hard to seem creepy. it's a compulsion object-which are done to death mind you-that makes people do a bad thing and then that person will make others wanna do bad things.

what kind of story are you trying to tell? the description enough won't be able to warrant an upvote so you need to have something to pique the readers interest, if the object had a more manageable effect you could probably make test logs that gradually become more and more interesting. i don't feel anything when reading this other than "ok".

it's all up to your imagination but this is not near a postable state and i recommend establishing a better concept and execution.

While the idea is really cool, and the article is well written, there is one part that really irks me.

The implication that Carnot Convection used to allow stars to burn forever would mean that elements heavier than hydrogen, helium, and lithium would not exist, as any element heavier than that required stars to burn out and explode, with the force of the explosion fusing atoms into heavier and heavier elements, as well as spreading them across the universe.

Wow. I didn't know what EHS was, or that it's that unusual. I thought it was just one of those things everyone experienced.

I remember one time specifically when on a BS campout I woke up to the sound of someone banging pans together. I got up just to find that everyone was still asleep. Guess I know what that was now.

Yeah thanks for the advice.
I have seen what this community does sometimes.
Instead of sticking to the moronically im going to diverse a lot of the requests by writing all the rejected items, including serious ones, not just stupid half baked ideas.
I actually had an idea about writing about how a simple request for a glass of beverage caused a major full scale containment breach but i currently don't know how to write that without it seeming to cliche and unoriginal.

Interesting idea for an SCP, although I'm not sure about the "no-clot" thing. Maybe the wound doesn't heal, and contact causes euphoria? Just a thought. Everything else is great in my opinion though.

Thanks for the advice, differentiating the topic from the rest of them will prove interesting. I currently have plans to rework my writing with the advise and attempt a more darker atmosphere (if that makes any sense.)

The Tale idea has a lot of potential and i may attempt to work that into my writing. As it stands im going to try and keep it as a log, maybe building off that idea later down the line.

There are a couple possibilities that would let censoring make sense in-universe:

-Knowing what it is could make it worse. The Foundation knows more than one monster that gets deadlier the more it's victim knows about it.

-Knowing could cause morale problems. Maybe the beasts look like family members or the victims themselves. There are a lot of images that could get under a soldier's skin and shake them up, and knowing the specific shape of what may jump out at you may not help enough to be worth the tactical disadvantage of scared men.

-Knowing could reveal classified information. Maybe the monsters look like the O5 council, or world leaders that have been replaced by robots, or they are all the cherubs Foundation chemists tore the wings off to make amnestics. The Foundation has a lot of secrets they consider more important than staff lives, this may be one of them.

I'm not trying to convince you to change your vote. You (don't) like whatever you like.
Just wanted to point out that problematic expungement is not necessarily a plot hole.

this would actually work better as a tale now that i think about it. though maybe if the dreams could used to make the user of the bed try to get it out of the foundation or taper the dreams to cause the individual to acomplish thing for the bed

I am abstaining from voting because it would be an upvote by a slim margin.
And since this is currently in single digits, I'd rather it tip over the edge and get a rewrite than limp along underwhelming most people.

If a rewrite does happen, I have two suggestions.
First, un-redact containment. As previously noted it is a huge downvote magnet.
Second, take it from a virus to something a bit more mysterious. Maybe: "A complex hydrocarbon exhibiting some characteristics of a prion or virus. See <non-existent addendum> for full analysis."

Partly to help suspend disbelief, but mostly because I personally think prion infections are more believable in cars than a virus with no cells to play host.

Well no actually. I've seen it searched for without issue.

This isn't the place for that. When you post something, it's subject to final judgement, and users are not obligated to explain their votes.

We would like to remind you that as mentioned in the required reading, members are expected to create a Sandbox Page for their draft before posting it on the main site. After doing this, we highly encourage making a thread for your SCP idea and ask for feedback in the feedback forum. Other users and members of the Forum Critique Team will gladly help you out.

Writing standards in terms of formatting and narrative are high on the SCP wiki. We are more than willing to help you get off the ground, but you have to help yourself as well.

If you have any questions about this, don't hesitate to PM me or another member of staff.

SCP 3723 is a Living Metal (named “Chlorophyte” by foundation staff) found growing underground in ██████, Colorado in ██/██/1921. The cave in question was found by coal miners, who discovered it upon harvesting a vein of coal. The cave is an estimated 700+ acres wide, and is 389 yards from top to bottom. It is 5371 meters below sea level. The cave has its own ecosystem made of mostly plantlife, with common insects being the only “non-plant like” life.

The redactions annoy me. Why would the Foundation want to keep what these monsters look like from personnel that have to work with this thing? Obviously they should know what they're dealing with. For all we know, these things could be the vampire bunnies from the Holy Grail. Lazy redaction is bad redaction. -1

This reportedly happened to me, but I don't have any personal recollection of it. So it's properly my Mom's ghost story.

I grew up in an old farmhouse. Parents got a great deal from the original owner because his late wife would have liked the idea of a young couple raising children there again.

There is a staircase near the front door that was clearly a later addition. It is steep with very narrow treads. All made of bare wood gone stone-like and polished slick with wear.

When I started to walk my Mom was terrified I would fall down those steps, so she put very sturdy baby gates at both the top and bottom. One of the earliest rules I can remember is "don't go on the stairs alone".

One day I was taking a nap upstairs, my mom took the opportunity to do some laundry downstairs. Then into the laundry room toddles little Wishun. She scolded me for breaking the stairs rule, and I said (in barely verbal toddler-talk) "nuh-uh lady did it!". Confused Mom thinks maybe there's a visitor she didn't hear come in because of the washing machine. But not only is there no one else around, the door is locked. More to the point, both the top and bottom baby gates are still latched in place and she couldn't figure out how I could have gotten past one, much less both. Never mind making it down those deathtrap stairs without breaking my neck.

The most she could ever get me to say about it is "lady did it" or "lady carry me" or at least that's what she thought I mumbled. Mom had my dad add some mesh across the banister and gaps in the baby-gates, because I must have just wriggled through somehow, and didn't give it much more thought.

Some time later, Mom found out that the former owner's deceased wife was named "Sadie". Which if you say it in baby-ese could be easily mistaken for "lady". No one in the house knew her name at the time of the incident, and no one in my life to that point was named anything similar. So where did I get the name from?

Mom truly believes, and has told me many times, that the ghost of the nice old lady who lived in our house carried me down the stairs so I wouldn't get hurt.
