Any SCP fans on Tildes?
For those who've not heard of it, the scp wiki is a community-based collaborative writing effort based around "anomalous" objects/beings and the efforts of the SCP Foundation to contain them and protect the general public. Users can submit and vote on articles about SCPs, written in the style of research/containment notes. Some popular entries are SCP-173, SCP-87 and SCP-682, alongside a few more abstract and lighter entries.
Anyone want to share some SCP entries they've enjoyed reading? SCP-3515 is the most recent I've read and I'd definitely recommend it.
hell yeah dude
these are two of my faves
Oh my, I'm ashamed to have forgotten about those two masterpieces :P
1296's method of delivering an alpaca was interesting.
Every time I see somebody mention this online I think they're talking about secure copy. I mean yeah, I use it all the time but I'd hardly call myself a fan or want to talk about it with a bunch of other SCP users, haha.
You call yourself an SCP fan? Name 3 contributors ;)
I used to be a fan, but honestly I feel that with so many SCPs comes a lack of 'immersion.' I find that there doesn't seem to be a consistent view of the foundation anymore which kinda breaks the whole point of SCPs for me.
There are indeed multiple different, sometimes contradictory, histories of the foundation IIRC which articles are free to build on. I can see why it would be off-putting, but honestly I quite like it because it means you can kind of build your own lore, if that makes sense.
Oh man, don't remind me about SCP! The hours I've wasted hitting random and reading the next file. One of my favorites recently has been SCP-842.
Well...I may or may not have created this thread to collect links to more SCPs to waste my time reading :P Speaking of, I've not read 842, so I'll check it out.
Oh there's also a series of Youtube shorts! It starts here.
Well...guess I'm not doing anything productive this evening :)
I don't go there myself, but if it gets linked I'll probably wind up stuck there for half an hour reading the craziness. I found out about it after watching Markiplier play SCP Containment Breach for like 35 parts over 3 days a few years ago.
2521 was a trip.
2521 is my favorite.
Ok, that's funny.
(I'm not much of a fan, so forgive me for not knowing the designations.)
My favorite SCP is the hopeless one that the ruling council of the Foundation have given up on. Something about how the chains to keep a demonic creature contained are breaking, and they can't make new ones. There's also the Tesla raybun that's going to destroy the universe.
Also, the child of another SCP that's really cute and cuddly and is basically a huggy blob of goo.
Don't know of it, but it sounds interesting. I'll have to look around for a matching entry.
SCP-999? Love that lil' guy.
Damn, that was pretty good. Trouble with these types of SCP is that they always leave me wanting more, though!
It's not 2317 -- I remember the O5 cooking up a fake ritual to keep morale up, and the tone was much more somber.
Still a hilarious read though.
Oops -- turns out I was talking about 2317-j. Firefox's tracking protection broke the site for me, so I DuckDuckGoed it and must have ended up on the wrong page.
There was at least one that was supposed to be the SCP website itself, wasn't there?
Can someone please explain? Likewise I thought this was about the secure copy Unix command. Is this Alien abduction fan fic or something?
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this. I'm an scp fan - it's really useful for pulling files from my desktop when working away from home!
It's a collectively-written science fiction encyclopedia of artifacts and creatures.
The narrative revolves around the Foundation, a group set up to protect against any and all objects of an unusual nature (supernatural, inventions that could destroy the world, alien artifacts, etc).
I believe Warehouse 13 was inspired by it, and as far as narratives go, it probably isn't the much of a unique idea.
An article I found: https://www.dailydot.com/parsec/fandom/scp-foundation-paranormal-artifact-containment-horror/
Antimemetics Division pieces are my fave. http://www.scp-wiki.net/antimemetics-division-hub
I actually just got around to reading There Is No Antimemetics Division yesterday and it was a really nice trip. Kind of peaked in the first part to me at least, but the rest was pretty enjoyable as well.
I've been an avid SCP reader on and off since Series 1 and even though my memory for them in general is horrible, I love reading them.
Some of my favorites are everything related to Remembrance, including 2316. 1730, 3333 pre-rewrite, 87, 2521, 3001 are others that might not be my absolute favorites, but they came to mind first.
My favorite group is also Gamers Against Weed.

I watched three men die because one man sneezed in a room full of blood and shit and light.
three more men go in, cheap mops and each other's lives in their hands.
I watched a man I admired gunned down for leaving a rose for a girl whose life was tattered by trauma she never deserved.
she doesn't remember, and three halls down I can hear her screaming.
I watched a group of soldiers go down fighting against the corpses of comrades who'd died before them.
we test another sample, this time on children.
I watched five men and women gunned down in an abandoned factory no one cares about.
it happens again and again. Every eleven seconds. Forever.
I watched a man sit comfortably in a nice armchair, sipping scotch and laughing as he ordered a woman to simply stop breathing.
he gets the day off of work detail for good behavior.
I watched hundreds of men and women in orange jumpsuits herded like animals into empty rooms that filled with gas and fire.
hundreds more are told they have a chance for a lighter sentence, and a chance to serve their country.
I watched the world nearly die in a thousand thousand terrible ways. Sometimes we would have had time to scream.
I'm alive to write about it. You want happy endings? Fuck you.
You're alive to read it.
God help us all.
Secure. Contain. Protect.
This was very confusing to read in my inbox before I saw the context of the post 😅. Certainly interesting, and through the comments provided a few other SCPs I've not read.
I've seen it talked about a lot and have always been interested, I really enjoy /r/nosleep and a lot of the comments on stories I like there mention SCP, I am curious if you just kind of dive in or are there some sort of order to things, like introductions and such?
Just "diving in" has been my approach thus far, although there are some articles that include useful background information you might want to read like the explanation of object classes, clearance levels and facility locations.
Most people start by reading the more popular entries, although keep in mind some like SCP-2521* are a little difficult to understand at first and others like this one depend or build on knowledge of foundation personnel/other SCP entries.
*A good resource for SCPs like this is /r/SCPDeclassified.
My favorite so far is SCP-3148. It and links from it lead to a quite deep rabbit hope.
