    Yeah, 1055 is neat.

    That's also one of the plusses...there's almost at least 1500 different SCPs or so, plus the -J's, the Tales, and the other random stuff. In all that, you're guaranteed to find something you like, even if the only thing you like turns out to be SCP-100-J.

    I think my favorites have to be the legos, 682, and 914. Oh, and the coffee maker.

    I greatly enjoy 682's crossovers with other SCPs, mainly because (as already said) it makes it feel like a character instead of a data entry.

    And his interaction with 053 was adorable.

    I'm not much for cross-testing and experiment logs. It's primarily a horror site, and I think that's what is done the best. Whether it's the classic jump scare creepypasta-like articles, the creeping horror, the existential crises, the "what the hell is that thing"...

    Experiment logs lead to the temptation for writers to "one-up" each other, which isn't ideal.

    That said, the Log of Anomalous Items is rather fun.

    To each his own, I guess. I think the best parts of the sight are the experiment logs, if only because they inject a good amount of dark humor into the mix.

    I like my horror to be funny, so this is perfect for me.

    Some of it gets a bit over-the-top though. Like when 682 breaks out to communicate with 1548.

    That... That is amazing.

    Question though, how did you find that? I don't see it grouped with the other Incident Reports. Is there a page somewhere I am missing?

    Tvtropes' crowning moment pages are your friend. I'm still reading through them. Just finished Nightmare Fuel and Crowning Moment of Funny

    Note: Tvtropes is not, in fact, your friend, and will actively devour your time and life if you aren't careful.

    They scare a little easy.
    A lot of entries in nightmare fuel are basically "X made a scary face"

    Might check through it though.

    TVtropes frightens me a bit though, once got death threats for participating in a minor edit war, and then there's... well the strange people who sometimes write things.

    Made an edit to explain it a bit
    Don't want to make it a huge deal.

    Basically I ended up in a minor edit war (I was being really stubborn I admit, and removed something 3 times) and I was told if I didn't stop he'd kill me.
    Then the person followed my edits and reverted them.

    Did you report this? I'm pretty sure death threats are against the TvTropes rules of conduct, to a significant degree.

    That sounds like right around the point where I'd replace his edits instead of removing them. Death threats are half-assed, and maybe 1:100,000,000 follows through with one (due to both lacking murderous intent, and not having your name or address).

    SCP numbers? Links? Something more than just a tease?


    Must say I'm amused that the tvtropes page for the SCP foundation lists itself as an SCP. I also greatly enjoy that the SCP foundation feels like Stephen King got ahold of the Warehouse 13 premise.

    Heh. Don't mention that on the site, they hate people implying they ripped off Warehouse 13 almost as much as they hate people accusing SCP-173 of ripping off the Weeping Angels. A bit of a Berserk Button, really.

    Links...right...

    SCP Foundation would probably be the Technocracy institute aimed at containing and neutralizing any Reality-deviant.

    Same here. See, the utter dark and gloom only gets more effective when you run across the occasional spot of light and brightness to provide contrast (and vice versa, the omnipresent grimdarkness makes those occasional bits of relief even brighter).

    One of my favorite pieces that highlights the shadowy boundary between them is here: Ethics Committee Orientation. When an organization's moral compass is also its secret police, you know you're in trouble.

    If it's in a sense of 'wow, sucks to be you', then yeah. One of the guiding rules that I wholeheartedly support is "If you want to own an SCP or be an SCP, the writer has done something wrong". People like 1505 or 085, you just can't help but feel sorry for and wish you could do something to make their awful lives a little easier.

    And sometimes I just want to make toast. It's why I exist, but no one ever does.
