Siskulous' Sandbox

I'm planning on keeping multiple ideas here from here on out. If you're here in response to a request for critiques then more than likely you want the first tab, as that's where my latest stuff will be. If that doesn't seem right, then there should be a tab that corresponds to the link text in my post on the drafts forum.

Author's note: Yes, at present it's just a rather boring thing that does a thing. I'm working on it.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a 1m3 steel safe. All personnel must undergo memetic innoculation before being allowed to handle SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 3D folded paper figurine with the appearance of Tux the Penguin. It is folded rather poorly and as a consequence it's flippers stick out to the sides. The paper appears to have been printed in black and white with certain portions later colored in with a yellow marker.

Its anomalous properties manifest when any individual comes into physical contact with it. Upon touching SCP-XXXX the subject becomes influenced by a powerful memetic effect and will be convinced that SCP-XXXX is of great value. Further, the subject will refuse to acknowledge the nature of SCP-XXXX as a paper model and will instead insist that it is some other object of great significance. Some examples include:

  • The Holy Grail
  • A working Alcubierre drive
  • Excalibur
  • The Spear of Destiny
  • A cold fusion device
  • The meaning of life
  • The Sacred Seal
  • A vacuum energy device
