SCP-914 Experiment Log Sandbox

REMINDERS TO CONTRIBUTORS: SCP-914 does not create or destroy matter, nor does it change anything on the atomic level. All outputs should contain all and only the matter included in the input. Some grandfathered entries break this rule, but new entries should never do so.

Additional reminder: 914 is a cheeky little bugger. It's unpredictable and apparently kinda snarky. If the output is exactly what you'd expect from the input, or if 914 has just obligingly improved everything you put in, the entry is out-of-character.

  • LeveritasLeveritas (me) will regularly check this page, selecting logs that are of sufficient quality to add to the log and port them over.
  • Tests that fail to adhere to the proper format (date, etc.) will not be ported until fixed.
  • You can place notes at the end of tests, and feel free to be creative when doing so. It can give some interesting insight into dynamics within the Foundation. Having said that, don't make Foundation personnel look like idiots/psychopaths/juvenile/a combination of those. It's a professional research organisation, not a fraternity ward or a death cult.
  • Not too direct. 914 doesn't talk to researchers directly, it ruins the mystery and it's not clear if the machine is sentient or not. If you put in a note, you don't get a response, you might get something that might be a response if you interpret it a certain way, but it also might be random. Or something else entirely.
If you're not comfortable with your in-universe name being used, politely request a change or come to me about it. If you start editing other logs without warning, you're out of here so fast that it's going to make your head spin. I have no tolerance for divas.

Notice: On another note, changing these notices will result in disciplinary actions, meaning Site banning, not just this log.

Some of you might have noticed that I'm being harsher on notes and logs that I deem too LOLFoundation. To illustrate my point, I'm going to use an example from part IV:

I actually edited the note. This is what it originally was:

This is a very small difference, but it makes a world of difference in tone. The first entry works a lot better because it's not a researcher scolding the machine outright like a kid would. It's implying (read, show don't tell) that the researcher became so fed up with the result that he outright left. Wacky entries work well if it's against the cold professionalism that signifies the Foundation, and it doesn't work if it looks like the employees are acting just as unprofessional.

Conversation about Experiment Log 914 and help for your entries can be found at the 914 Discord server.


Added Logs

Please delete yours as soon as you see it. Thanks! (Logs that have been moved here for more than a day have been shortened to save a little space.)


Denied Logs

Denied or equivalent by mod, as well as drafts that have not been touched for a long time. (Will be deleted after a day without activity.)

General Notes

Notices for everyone.

1. Have you had enough sleep? Because if you didn't, it's still NOT an excuse for low-quality tests.
2. If you didn't bother reading the above division of obviously important text, click here!
3. Part XV is up and running! Find your tests here.
4. New log-writers, please do not use other writers' characters without asking. It is generally seen as bad form. If you want to use someone's character, most of the writers can be contacted via Wikidot PM or, for a quicker response, the 914 Discord server.
5. Everyone is invited to join the above Discord server. This also facilitates easier communication with the mod. If you notice something wrong with a particular test in Experiment Log 914, you can either point it out in the server or do so below.


Notes to Mod

Extant entry fixes.

Name: Researcher Jane Cho, Junior Researcher Y. Belopaku (assisting)
Date: 25/05/2020
Total Items: Three 1kg samples of calcite, three 1kg samples of basalt, three glass bottles containing 0.25 grams of tree pulp, three identical copies of an outdated Florida licence plate

Note: I’m officially back! - Jane Cho

Input: One of each item listed above
Setting: 1:1
Output: One large rock, composed of what appears to be an unnatural matrix of various minerals derived from the input, with an unchanged licence plate embedded into its side. The glass is assumed to have been replaced with quartz. Non-invasive scanning has determined that a rectangular piece of paper is present inside a cavity in the rock.

Input: One of each item listed above
Setting: Fine
Output: An inanimate stone sculpture of what appears to be a spider with four legs and a hollow tube-shaped head. Its body and legs are made of basalt, its head is composed of metal from the licence plate, and calcite composes multiple patterns on its sides. A long glass cylinder protrudes from the head cavity, topped with a small paper model of a lotus flower. When JR Belopaku initially viewed the item, he was affected with a powerful memetic compulsion to "escape" the room. Amnestics were provided and were proved to be effective at removing this effect. This effect was not present in subsequent viewings of the item.

Note: I think I know where this is going. It's a pataphysics thing, don't worry if you have no idea what I'm talking about. - Jane Cho

Note: At the request of Researcher Cho, JR Belopaku was excluded from the test and was replaced by D-99326.

Input: One of each item listed above
Setting: Very Fine
Output: [DATA LOST]
Addendum:

Sometimes I feel like the entire world is just an illusion.

[DATA LOST]

Belopaku: Fortunately.

Nothing makes sense. Everything contradicts each other.

Sometimes I feel like I don’t even exist.

[DATA LOST]

Three unidentified humanoid figures can be seen guarding the entrance of the facility.

Belopaku: That is not a pen. That is most definitely not a pen.

What do you do then? What do you do when you feel like there’s nothing to feel, and nothing to do?

[DATA LOST]

Cho: I like this place.

Belopaku can be heard sobbing.

I want to be grounded in this reality. I want to believe that everything is real, that some things actually make sense and can be justified by themselves.

Is that too much to ask?

[DATA LOST]

A large mushroom is being consumed by JR Belopaku.

Belopaku: I was never born.

Cho: No.

On some days I feel like I’m not even getting better.

A gust of wind knocks over the output booth.

Sometimes I feel like I’m breaking out of dozens of comfort zones every day to improve myself, just to look back and realize I’m back where I first started.

I want to say my mind is playing tricks on me, because it probably is, but

[DATA LOST]

Cho: Do you believe in reality?

Belopaku smiles.

for once

Cho: There’s something on the moon.

A beam of white light enters the atmosphere, turning it opaque as the air rapidly converts to plasma.

[DATA LOST]

Note: The above addendum was appended to the experiment log as an anonymous edit from an unknown source. Both Researcher Cho and Junior Researcher Belopaku were found to have no recollection of any of the events recorded. In addition, the identity and/or location of the output from this test is currently unknown. Investigation on this incident is ongoing.

This isn’t a vent. I’m fine. :) -CuteFish
