It's sulfide, it's Hell time, it's the woooord…

  • SCP-2577 ("Falling Ships") - Ron Perlman's new show, "Frozen Steel", will show you the dangers and thrills associated with decommissioning military ships. Might wanna binge-watch this! Written by PetrogradPetrograd.


Fandom Stuff

What's been going on in the community aside from our site? Well…

  • GemoDawnGemoDawn, who operates the channel SCPReadings, did two particularly impressive videos in December. The first is actually a reading of ●●|●●●●●|●●|● - well, less of a reading and more of a discussion and interpretation of an SCP with no words, which really highlights what makes it such a special skip. If you're looking for a more conventional reading, there's a good, icky one of SCP-1104! She also did a lullaby of sorts about the Foundation; a particularly haunting one, at that. A great channel all-around.
  • Though this is in Russian, it is suitably creepy nonetheless. Влад Семецкий, or nakomis132 has done two videos reading SCP-1220-RU, a creepy and disturbing skip. Perfect way to close off 2015, don't you think :3


Lots of cool fanart this month! In the holiday spirit, here is a truckload for you all, in a wide variety of styles!! If you haven't seen what artists on the site have produced, go here and here to see what we make!

  • Daily SCP is a blog that does daily drawings of SCPs, going both in chronological order and taking requests. This month, one of their works that I particularly enjoyed was art of SCP-445. Incredibly silly and cute!
  • OverlordCrown is our next feature for making a simple yet visually-unique drawing of one of my favorite SCPs, SCP-1936, and reminded me of visually of Vib-Ribbon straightaway. [Epilepsy Warning] Go look here.
  • Stairwayblues is an artist with a colorful style and, well, since we have a tale about 2030 this month, why not link you a wonderful picture of it? Here's SCP-2030 in all of its suave, charming glory. Laugh is indeed fun, and also colorful to boot!
  • Perelka-l has her own fanart thread on the forums, but this isn't on the site, and I figure it'd be worth it to bring more attention to her art! Perelka_LPerelka_L did a really neat one of Agent Troy Lament, because the agents working tirelessly and risking their lives each day need as much love as the SCPs too.
  • Wondered how SCP-1471 appears on all those pics? Shiala has thought so too, and decided to treat us to her interpretation of it. The result is a really cute pic. Selfies!
  • There's been a few Undertale/SCP crossover pics of recent, and my favorite from this month is SaintNevermore's depiction of SCP-682 as a boss. Can you even imagine? Imagine no more! Check out the monstrosity that is 682 in Undertale-style here.
  • SorateikO716 has a style I particularly enjoy, with cute-looking humanoids and attention-drawing eyes. This artist did a whole photoset of SCPs, such as SCP-1372, SCP-2049, SCP-1591, SCP-1760, SCP-2833, & SCP-1739! It's always cool to see how some SCPs can be interpreted into humanoid figures! The photoset is here, and the artist has a personal website here!
  • 寧子 has one image thus far, but it's a simple and pretty portrait of the ever-so-cute SCP-131. Not too much to say about it, other than I liked it a lot, enough to feature it here. Go see it here.
