That's what I like about SCP, you don't have to explain anything. You can just come up with random stuff and let the reader draw their own conclusions.
Does anyone know if there's an SCP that just...doesn't do anything? Some perfectly ordinary object that poses no threat, or is even interesting in the slightest, besides the fact that the Foundation contains it for reasons even they don't know. Seems like that could be a good opportunity to reveal a little backstory on the Foundation, perhaps.
I just wanted to see if someone had thought of the concept before, and apparently they have. Knowing the internet, in retrospect that was probably pretty stupid of me to wonder.
Shame it's a joke SCP though, you could probably make a good "canon" story out of it if done right.
I'm thinking of registering and making my own SCP dubbed as "Simba". It's a big plush toy of a green lion (photo included) who has varying psychological effects on different people. For example, a normal human being would find him comforting when held, while a cold-blooded-killer would try to get away as soon as possible by a mere glance of him. While people who have killed but feel guilt or regret (or just had to do it) or the people with psychological "issues" feel guilt, mild paranoia but nothing far too extreme as the previous type.
Oh and he has the same effects on people who sleep with him. Good dreams, Nightmares, or Irritation.
How does that sound?
I think the video embodies 173 quite well (if you replaced watson with 173)
Don't know if anyone else knows of this, but Series 1 of SCPs is finished - the 1000s block is open to everyone now.
Wait, what would happen if you put SCP-173 and A weeping angel in the room, both facing eachother?
This thing would make a good SCP;
Apparently the Shy Guy SCP is based off of that.
It's so cheesey and take itself too seriously (this scp stuff)
A thread like this doesn't deserve to die
Bump for Urban Justice
It wasn't really dead...
anyway, my lab coat got here today, so my researcher costume is complete. I'll take pictures tomorrow.
Would it count as an agent costume if I wore a gas mask with a field jacket?
I always imagined them as a bunch of guys in labcoats all the time.
I don't imagine they look much different from any other Special Forces group, though who the fuck knows what the scientists put in their uniforms with all the crazy shit they have. Just the normal BDUs and such, maybe a suit for business and other such regular dealings.
