I understand. I was just going to wait until I could start a new thread and go from there

The biggest reason for my downvote is that I dislike this concept and you're probably going to know why. In short, how issues with the priorities of emotional labor is turned into an (probably not intended) old misogynist idea of women sucking the lives out of men. I know you probably tried to avoid it, but this trope is awfully present in this article, with the object not only displaying an inherent need for life but also an exaggerated manipulative behavior.

It is without doubt competently written, I followed the entire thing through waiting for some kind of sympathetic relief such as the junior researcher actually being an asshole or likewise. Unfortunately, your attempts at making Kat sympathetic I believe only gave the impression of a more manipulative person, displaying martyrlike behavior.

I hope you understand these remarks. I'm sure you did not intend your article to elicit these feelings but that is truly how I interpreted it so I felt the need to voice them.

While I'm completely clueless as to why there's something about "Mr. Rubber" at the top, this was an extremely creepy and horrifying read. +1


disclaimer:everything here is my opinion.

I read the newbie guide and is said to give a basic overview of it and thats what I’ve been trying to do.

Yes, that's exactly what you need to do. But we reviewers still need to be asking questions to see the exact details that we want to know before choosing to greenlight or not.


j.w

I just feel like you're abandoning this really good premise you have going on here. You have the framework for an emotional story, but you never build it from there and just leaves it underdeveloped, leaving much to be desired.

Putting up a revolution in a country just to know if an anomaly understands semantical subtleties could be a little too much, even for the Foundation!

His story was horrible

Just like my dead ex-wife

It's so ridiculous, I shouldn't upvote it, and yet the ridiculousness is so extreme, I cannot help but upvote it.

I think you broke me, gj gamer. +1

I hate this by TL333sTL333s, 18 Sep 2021 12:37

This was truly amazing, I need to dig deeper into the kaktusverse. I am so happy that you actually managed to make 343 i n t e r e s t i n g. A real character!

One thing:

SCP-073: Of course.

Director Light produces her mobile terminal. After a moment, she turns it to show SCP-073.

Dir. Light: Is this him?

Suggestion here: "she shows it to SCP-073" as what is written now can be interpreted as if she shows the picture of SCP-073 to 073.

1. My main idea was they had an agreement, XXXX-2 would attack people it deemed a threat to XXXX-1 or XXXX-1 said had hurt them, and XXXX-1 would make sure XXXX-2's image existed, as it needs some image of it to be able to exist and the old image supporting it was starting to decay.
XXXX-2 is a green furless quadruped about 30cm tall, it has 2 eyes, but no other facial features. It also has large front claws which it uses for attacking.

2 I think I had gotten confused with the guide, since while writing I was using the 3008 example as a reference instead of the Death Knife example which would've been a more relevant reference. I'll rewrite one as an actual narrative later today.

That's a good idea! I think it could work with the "XXXX-1 said had hurt them" part of the agreement. Maybe XXXX-1 has XXXX-A events happen to lure people within range?


They/Them are my pronouns!

Blatantly parasitizing the Foundation, impressive…

**Seeking greenlights **:yes

Page type :SCP

Genre:mystery

**Elevator pitch **: The Infinite Ocean is a portal located in the Indian Ocean and at the end of each year the portal moves to a new location in the Indian Ocean making it difficult to contain. This anomaly was discovered when fishing boats started disappearing leading the foundation to find and secure this anomaly wich is easier said than done. Upon entering the portal you will be teleported to a world where there's only water and a few entities that live there.

**Central Narrative **: Its mainly about an SCP foundation heavily armed reaserch ship that was sent into the portal to research this anomaly and find out more about the entities that live there but not everything goes as planned for the crew are experiencing weird syntoms.

**Hook/attention grabber **:A short story about the events in this field research that went wrong.

**Additional notes **:Criticism is allowed

As I read this, I became more and more grateful that I never watched Captain Planet. Yikes.

I decided to abandon my first concept that I posted a few days ago and decided to go with a simpler idea for my first skip.

Seeking Greenlights: Yes

Page Type: SCP Article

Genre (Optional): Comedy/Lighthearted/Wholesome

Elevator Pitch: A sapient online anomaly that is only able to communicate by adding and deleting songs in a playlist to form sentences.

Central Narrative: Meant to be a shorter article. A Foundation researcher gets her Spotify playlist constantly modified to make it sound like someone is hitting on her (songs spell out phrases like, "are you single?", "free this saturday night?") but the anomaly eventually divulges more sensitive information about her job as a researcher, and figures this thing is an actual anomaly. The Foundation tries to interview the anomaly by adding songs of their own to try and talk to it, but don't really get much out of it (as it's only interested in our female researcher). Eventually, she gets pissed and spells out: "I have a boyfriend." Finally, the anomaly, in true incel fashion, says something like "whatever, you weren't pretty anyway" and stops its activity which leads to it eventually being reclassified to neutralized.

Hook/Attention-Grabber: I think the main catch of the article that'll make it more interesting is the method of communication, I'll be choosing each song to make the anomaly's dialogue, and the anomaly getting rejected leading to it being neutralized would make for a funny ending.

You SCP-ified Mr. Roger's Neighborhood!

…I rather like.

Now, Mr. Rogers was one of the nicest guys to ever exist, and I doubt he'd have any truck with the Dr. Ws who didn't think things through and whose inventions could be dangerous even when used as the instructions directed.

But there is a timeline/canon on the site where Dr. W's successors quit making such dangerous toys, and focus on anomalous toys for anomalous communities, and on regular but scientifically entertaining toys for the "normal" world. And Isabel and her successor lead Wondertainment in that world, which the note could be alluding to. That Wondertainment Fred Rogers would work with.

Even if it’s basically harmless, I’d still be utmost scared about being spammed with pictures first, then actually visualizing this creature.

I upvoted it for being a nice read with an unsettling feeling included.

Some people just make very irritating art about it which sure isn’t the writer’s fault.

You're very right. I think I've fixed up the gramma, which I swore I caught, but there is still much to be desired.

To be honest, I wasn't invested in any emotional connection. It was supposed to be a brief 'and then the world ends' without much fuss. I feel something was lost in translation, so regardless of intent, it needs to be expanded upon. For instance, you point of "we know all humans are gonna die in this world with Death in it, but why does it even matter?" was partly the point.

Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it.

After all these years of not knowing anything about the foundation, I finally found my way here about four months ago, thanks to this mascot-like guy.

And now I’m unable to leave.

It’s unbelievable how current of a topic, how great of a gateway, this famous and simple creature still is.

While I know that the original author is very likely not even part of this community at all, I can’t tell you often enough that I’ve never been this fascinated by anything else before, and I’ve watched countless movies, read countless stories during the last 30 years.

Scp-173 for sure is terrifying, fascinating, and as much as I deeply wish that this article was longer and would at least include weight, size, age of the material, speed, information about how it was caught, it’s the perfect example for how scp articles and how the foundation as a whole are working.

It’s great as it is, forever a gateway for people to come here and keep this project alive. It’s great as it is for being so simple, unforgettable, under my skin. For being such an inspiration.

There has to be a reason why people still write about this, speculate about the million open questions and fill the internet with their (of course partially weird) art. For me, it will always be a very special piece of writing. 173 forever!
