    Yes, because only super cool destroy-the-world D-class killing superthings are interesting.
    I wasn't saying that it's a bad thing. On the contrary, I actually prefer it when SCPs aren't Apocalypse Machines.

    I seem to recall people actually requesting that people stop writing SCPs that are little self contained apocalypses, as apparently the foundation's containing so many different ways of ending the world that it's really starting to get out of hand.
    Easy, make an SCP that will solve all the world's issues and nullify anything that poses the hint of threat to humanity. No catch, no destruction, just some silly reason why they won't release it.

    You could have it so it's not entirely clear what it would do, but that hypothetically it could help in that way. Like, it's just a ball with a button on it that they feel obligated to keep safe because they instinctively think it'll help - but it's never made clear why or if it actually would, just that, if all goes wrong, someone has to push the button.

    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?

    doesn't have to kill them for real, of course.

    SCP-XXX is a small rock, about 20 cm in diameter, that has the ability to levitate a meter off of the ground, emit an aurora of pure energy, and fire bolts of concentrated light that have the temperature of over 500 degrees Celsius. When a person first witnesses the rock, they will always believe that it is a normal rock, and will regard information about SCP XXX as "nonsense". This manner does not carry to videos of XXX, and when someone who views XXX first through a video, they will see XXX's "true" form while witnessing XXX in reality.

    55 is kinda like that, except the only part of that is that they don't know why they're containing it, or WHY it's there or what it even is

    Why labcoats? I do believe they're recruited from militaries, not rich colleges like the scientists.

    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.
