A good question to consider is "if I took the violence/sexual abuse away, would there be ANYTHING interesting left?" It's by no means universal, but sometimes it helps prod ideas

Almost there captain!

Title Ideas: [A Museum to the End Of The World] [Of all the doors to open] [Pandora's Doors] [???]

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter(?) Euclid(?)

Special Containment Procedures: Following Exhibition XXXX-█-1, under no circumstances are O5 members permitted within 50 kilometers of ███████ Island. Disclosure of information on SCP-XXXX is permitted to only the Administrator and personnel who have no less than Level 3 security clearance and no more than Level 4 security clearance. The 10 kilometers surrounding SCP-XXXX is to be segregated with wire fencing and have guard patrols to ensure no unauthorized entry into SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept on Dr. Elisa's persons at all times, SCP-XXXX-2 is to be kept on the persons of the overseeing researcher at all times. Access to SCP-XXXX requires level 3 security clearance and the approval of Dr. Elisa.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a structure measuring 5m X 6m X 3m, located on ███████ Island off the Antarctic continent. The exterior of the structure is composed of industrial-grade concrete with a solid steel door. A single locking mechanism with a hexagonal depression is installed on the door.

The exterior of the building and the surrounding area demonstrate no anomalous properties; however, the interior of the structure is estimated to span more than 60m on the first level alone. It is currently unknown how many levels there are in the interior of SCP-XXXX.

The interior of SCP-XXXX is composed of several levels, with the total number of levels unknown. Each floor contains between one to three collections of exhibits. An elevator is positioned in the center of the floor that gives access to other levels, though the elevator itself is also surrounded by a descending staircase. The composition of the floors consists of 10m2 waxed patterns of several species of expensive and exotic woods; with darker woods forming borders and lines for the patterns. No two patterns have been recognized as exactly the same, though all patterns are Icovellavna with the exception of the main landing of each level, which is filled with a compass rose of the same woods. The walls and ceilings of each level are consistent in composition and design with the floors.

Each explored level of SCP-XXXX contains a series of doors; sets of doors are dedicated to titled exhibitions styled after a museum. Each door features a title of its own, and a label regarding a 'containment status'; Contained, Uncontained, or Failed to Contain. Multiple expeditions have been conducted to explore the other side of these of doors. (see Addendum SCP-XXXX-B).

SCP-XXXX first came to the attention of the Foundation via an envelope found on Site-██, addressed to O5-██ by personal name and their O5 digit. The envelope was screened for potentially hazardous materials, and found to be made of an unknown synthetic polymer; the contents were scanned and sent to Dr. Elisa (see Addendum SCP-XXXX-A). The envelope contained two electronic brass keys of an indiscernible make; the keys contain synthetic diamonds that held a consistent charge of two volts. Following attempts to breach the structure by force, it became clear that these keys were the only known items that could grant access to SCP-XXXX. These keys have been labeled SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 respectively.

Outline Remainder:

  • add moar to addendum B? Separate XXXX-█-1 expedition to addendum C?

Addendum:

If you can explain why she views the foundation's mission as "fun," and why she has some manner of attachment to the O5, that gives your article a new angle.

Get help from Kirby here, Note that it would be fun to also have scenarios in which they /don't/ die, but are instead deformed mentally or physically in some way.
people keep assuming that everything is cut off once the door closes. maybe make changes to cope.
It's a solid idea to maybe have some kind of plaque outside the door.
Ideas to add:(?)

  • Planet of the Apes
  • Extradimensional invasion?
  • Walmart owns everything
  • ???

Kirby: while the scenario was kinda cool (a little basic, but a nice start, as I assume you're ramping up) the dialogue was not great. It felt quite artificial to me. I know that the D-Class are more or less tools for you to show us your scenario, but you should also think of them as characters, so it doesn't feel like we're seeing through a cardboard cut out of a person. what is that story? Is it a love story? Is it just interest? I don't really know what the entity wants, so its hard for me to get a grasp on that. It's ok if I never get the answer to the question, as long as I know there's an answer, and I can at least /guess/ at what it is In my opinion, this is best done if you have a very good idea of what the motive is, but you just never reveal it fully to the audience.
WHAT IS YOUR STORY? The Foundation's efforts are futile. There are beings out there with agendas and abilities that can wipe out planets without thinking. They see us as insects, as ants. And like ants, some will toy with us through unusual or cruel methods.

Consider having some dialogue or commentaary on the exhibits by kaeleen.

Addendum XXXX-B: Notable Expedition Logs into SCP-XXXX.

Foreword to Mission Logs: Dr. Elisa is presiding over expeditions and in command of instructions to D-Class Personnel.
