The Leak — Other

1346-1

Researcher Calloway

SCP-1346 is actually a prison, capable of holding Keter-class entities. Unfortunately, the reason it's so effective is because it can't be approached or opened by most people.

Anomalous Incidents

Roget

Dr. Ralph Roget: Grandson of Shirley Gillespie, and my author avatar. Works on a large number of Safe and Euclid objects, and through the work of his grandmother received many important promotions and distinctions. After her retirement, he was left sort of ruderless, but eventually found a place as the head researcher of general SCP research. At some point, obtained his doctorate. Included in the following tales:

Agent Lis Boyd: Sibling to Dr. Boyd, a Foundation field agent known for preferring solo missions, and isn't close to anyone in the family outside of her brother. The SCP objects she has aided in containing include:

She has also been in the following reports:

Bees

Communism will win

The item/phenomenon that Bees refers to bends reality by creating for one person (and those around them) the reality of any hypothetical question regarding bees — that is to say, for the person who wrote it, bees had subwoofers, were censored by the government, etc. As reality strains under additions in the form of some property being applied to bees, it gains infohazardous and meta (in the sense of our "meta" tag) properties. Eventually bees overtake the existence of the person it's affecting and make them into… something else. And then it resets.

Change

Lumancer

SCP-601 was never meant to be left running continuously for this long. It's malfunctioning as a result- but only very slightly.

By contrast, Site Zero as described in Change is actually working flawlessly…

Clef And Dimitri Hit The Road

DrClef

Definitely true: they did run up a ridiculously large bill at a hotel in Rio.

Definitely bullshit: Any part having to do with Clef successfully seducing women.

The rest? What happens in Rio stays in Rio. Only Clef, Strelnikov, and Yoric know for sure, and they ain't tellin' nobody.

Doublehorses

DrBerggren

It is a staff meeting to discuss the potential SCP classification of an anomalous horse barn. However, the house of inconstant horses also has a secondary effect of inducing juvenile thought processes and speech mannerisms in those who encounter it or discuss it with someone who has encountered it.

Dr Clef's Personnel File

DrClef

Is Alto Clef the devil?

Maybe. But not in the way that you'd think. He doesn't have red horns or tempt humans or reign over hell. But he does rebel against God. And he does like to think of himself as a man of wealth and taste. And he did cast humanity out of Eden.

Hartliss Detective Agency

The Great Hippo

Hartliss Leaks

  • It's mentioned in the author post, but Reinhardt is responsible for Cragstaff Sanitarium.
  • The setting for the final confrontation (an abandoned resort town named Lakewood) is later discovered by the Foundation to be inhabited by a grove of highly unusual trees.
  • Hartliss isn't lying when he says he's basically just the magical equivalent of a card sharp; he's essentially just a trifling necromancer with a few extra tricks up his sleeve.
  • Hartliss knows where the Red Knife came from.
  • Hartliss' ability to 'sink' and 'rise' through layers of reality — based on Metaphysician's Unfinished Ritual skip — only works on places and things he has a strong sympathetic connection to (like Chicago).
  • Jacob Hartliss' real name is not Jacob Hartliss. He's also been around for longer than he lets on.
  • Since this tale series, Hartliss has tutored numerous people in the art of mystical chicanery, including at least one stage magician.
  • As of 2018, Hartliss is still alive.

Hunger Doggo Hub

AbsentmindedNihilist

Gonzalez didn't join the Foundation as a member of the Serpent's Hand. However, he served on the detail of a humanoid anomaly and grew to hate the Foundation for how it dehumanized people -his parents were migrant workers, and he knows a thing or two about what happens when you stop thinking about people as people.

The entity possessing 5760 is similar to 106 in that it used to be a god of its own little bone forest dimension. At home, it was the perfect hunter - nothing scared it, nor would it ever fail to make a kill. It was completely solitary at home - the only one of its kind.

Some human emotions it understands are pride, vengeance, fear, curiosity, being unsettled, playfulness and boredom. Ones it doesn't understand include loneliness, cruelty, grief, and love, which is why 5760's attachment to Avery serves to keep it away - the ide of being that attached to another being is something it cannot understand.

It was summoned from its home improperly, and couldn't return, which is why it's constantly hungry - a flaw in its arrival here. When summoned properly, the entity cannot be controlled, but can be unleashed in the direction of your enemies, the ancient pagan equivalent of a nuclear bomb. It usually inhabits solitary animals like polar bears or mountain lions - it has a wolf skull and deer antlers because of the materials used to make its effigy during its first summoning. It's been used once or twice on humans, but the effort required to properly isolate the subject (who would have to be the equivalent of a feral child) makes it not worth the trouble.

It doesn't kill humans because it wants to eat them - if it had less pride, it would be content to rebuild its forest and spend the rest of its days there, playing hunting games. But it is proud, and so it hates humans for lowering it to be in a cage like this, and wants to turn the tables by making them into its prey. This is why it resents Avery so much. It's not needlessly cruel, however - it merely wants things to be back in the normal order, and it will do anything to achieve that. Pain means nothing to it - only fear and death do.

I hope you get back to me soon

Dr Hysteria

I hope you get back to me soon is not based off of Interstellar. Sure the film may have been fresh in my mind at the time, but even then, I wouldn't base my contest entry on one of the most overrated science fiction films of all time. If I was basing it off of any scene in that movie it'd probably be the scene where Matthew McConaughey is watching the footage his kids sent him while he was in an alternate dimension, but it was most likely a coincidence. Anyway, on to in-universe stuff, the astronaut Dr. Holland was looking for isn't SCP-1959, but if you wanna know some backstory into the character here's a link that ties into this story.

Incident 682-1548

catboy637

Incident 682-1548 is actually part of a universe wide SCP musical.

On The Seventh Day Of Christmas

Silberescher

On The Seventh Day Of Christmas is a story of a woman who once worked with a researcher named Isaac Chen, nicknamed "Goggles". They were very close; however, during an event related to the primary SCP contained at her facility, he was killed. It devastated her.

Skip reminds Malley of Goggles, and she feels a connection to the thing as a result. Hence Malley's delay of the transfer. But she has no idea that the connection may be more than just mannerisms, as the ending implies.

She has also been in the following reports:

Reservoir Skips

Communism will win

The Broken God allows all mechanical, digital, etc. anomalies to communicate, provided you know how. Reservoir Skips actually happened, in a canon that is (for the most part) serious.

SCP-222-J

DrBerggren

The article itself is part of the SCP.

SCP-4357-J

Drewbear

SCP-4357-J actually ISN'T that stupid. It's just incredibly arrogant and has a very low frustration point for what it considers idiocy. And it thinks that someone not knowing the intricate details of demonology and how to summon/restrain/dismiss demons is idiocy.

SCP-6327-j

daveyoufool

SCP-6327-J created the Universe after one of the old gods accidentally left it next to a physics equation.

SCP-7475-J

Gargus

In all likelihood, nobody cares, but SCP-7475-J punched exactly 23 Foundation members.

SCP-7800-J

Roget

Dr. Robert Boyd: Cousin to Dr. Roget, and also the grandson of Director Gillespie. Jealous of the attention showered onto his cousin, who oversaw all of his research, even though he does a ton of the legwork. Currently an obscure researcher, known for the volume of his reports. Takes after his grandfathers work in interviewing SCP objects, and his work includes:

SCP-____-J

Communism will win

SCP-////////-J is not real and Vang is a lazy asshole.

SCP-SCP-J

daveyoufool

SCP-SCP-J is a sadistic, vindictive sociopath and the unhelpful feedback he gives is intentional.

SCP-TTKU-J (which is a thing that kills you)

daveyoufool

SCP-TTKU-J wants to kill you.

Six Letters Addressed to the SCP Foundation (and One Letter Home)

ahbonjour

2118 had a brother who died very young. After he died her household went into such grief that nothing could be done, her mother wouldn't get out of bed, her father spent all his time alone in his office. Her mother said during one of her crying jags "I just wish I could hear his voice again". Someone or something heard her and decided to grant it, by taking away her daughter's voice and replacing it with every dead child's—including her brother's. The first time she spoke in it, her mom flipped out and ran off for a bit. Eventually, of course, she came back, but she never looked at 2118 again. She told the schools 2118 was Deaf and needed to learn ASL. They fought a lot. When the Foundation faked her death and took her away, her mom was sad, of course, but also a little bit relieved. The brother is addressed a little bit in Six Letters Addressed to the SCP Foundation (and One Letter Home).

Küllo Toome was involved in the same disastrous GRU-P operation that cost Karsten Eiker his sister.

The Parables of Pseudo-Nadox

Univine

In both real life and in the Foundation universe, The Parables of Pseudo-Nadox were adapted from parables from non-Sarkic religions—hence the anonymous foreword.

The Parable of the Lepers and the Three Rich Men is a mashup between the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus and the Parable of the Good Samaritan, with the characters of the first and the overall plot of the second (three people pass by someone in need, and only the third person helps him).

The Parable of the Thracian Pilgrims is inspired by the Buddhist Parable of the Magic City, which is about how a guide tricks people into continuing on a journey by showing them an illusion of a magic city.

The Parable of the Men and the Bears is inspired by a saying from the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas: "Jesus said, 'Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes man.'"

Finally, the Parable of the Burning House is a mashup between the Buddhist Parable of the Burning House, from which it takes its name, and the Fire Sermon, from which it takes its point about suffering.

Naturally, you might ask why there would be a collection of Sarkic parables that reference Christian and Buddhist scriptures when Sarkicism was supposed to have been at its height centuries before those religions even existed. The obvious (but unsatisfying) explanation would be that some well-read Sarkist adapted those parables sometime between the classical era and the modern day. A more interesting explanation would be that the author was affiliated with the Wanderer's Library (hence the "came upon a Way" comment in the Parable of the Thracian Pilgrims) and adapted the Christian and Buddhist scriptures before they were historically written in the Foundation timeline. In that case, the anonymous foreword would have been inserted by some later editor, who wanted to defend the legitimacy of the parables.

Of course, the Scribes of the Horizon Initiative, who curate the Universal Texts, are naturally biased against Sarkicism and went with the first explanation, hence the title "The Parables of Pseudo-Nadox," which implies that the author of the parables was not Nadox. They might (or might not) be right.

S & C Plastics Hub

Ihp

The Setting:

You know Welcome to Night Vale, yes? Basically, the premise of that show is that supernatural bullshit has been happening in the titular town for so long that people have become desensitized to it and see it as a part of everyday life; essentially, what should be horrific, like floating lights above the Arby's, the dog park or the glow cloud and a possibly insane city council are all considered facts of life.

Sloth's Pit, Wisconsin, the setting of S & C Plastics, is a lot like that, except the town hasn't gone completely batshit bonkers. People have adapted to life with the supernatural and/or paranormal, yes, but they've also gotten genre savvy enough to know how to deal with it. The SPPD, for instance, gives courses on how to deal with time-traveling criminals, people are taught in school when to expect the strange, but regular, occurrences in Sloth's Pit, such as a weekly gravitational reversal on Main Street, and the study of the occult is a core part of the curriculum in this town, due to the fact that a new secret society pops up and disbands once every few months.

They work together fairly well with Site 87, to the point that some members of the site have been given keys to the city for their excellence in helping the town through major crises.

The Nexus:

Every Nexus has a particular center, whether conceptual or an actual object. One Nexus I'm working on has a theme of family, with the town being run by four clans of reality benders, and another is a hotbed of anomalous diseases that has to be quarantined through a joint effort of the CDC and Foundation.

The center of Sloth's Pit is stories. Everything that happens in Sloth's Pit, at least, outside of Site 87, happens for the sake of trying to make a good story. A lot of the characters in the series are actually stories that have been brought to life somehow, those being the Local Legends such as the Goatman and Hook-Handed man. These things told depending on what stories are told about them, with stories being told in closer proximity affecting them more.

There are one or two exceptions; for instance, with the publication of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the Hook-Handed man pretty much has a consistent form, that being the form of a war veteran who had his hand blown off some time during WWI and had it replaced with a hook as a prosthesis before getting shellshock and being put in an asylum. This is why most of the Legends keep themselves shrouded in hearsay and rumor, only occasionally popping out to scare people to keep their story strong.

The Legends also haven't killed anyone in about 40 years, at least, not intentionally. There was an incident in 1976 which resulted in the death of several children, and since then, they have vowed to never take the life of an innocent, and if they maim someone, they do their damnedest to undo the damage.

The Adventures of Lord Blackwood, Explorer and Gentleman

Smapti

I can't speak to what Djoric intended when he created the character, but for the purposes of my tales Lord Blackwood was once human, and the stories are things that actually happened to him. I personally haven't decided which of the following possibilities I consider to be true;

1) Lord Blackwood was somehow transformed into a slug
2) Lord Blackwood is a were-slug who's lost his ability to change form
3) The slug is an impostor and the real Lord Blackwood is lost in another dimension

The Grove of Exiles

TechSorcerer2747

  • Eshu is Named and can be Named, so therefore is not one of the Children. Midnight's speculation is only half wrong, however, as he is indeed responsible for the Day of Flowers. He is also named after a trickster diety in the Yoruba religion not dissimilar to Loki before the whole Baldur thing went down.
  • Claire Wythers obtained knowledge of how to enter SCP-4000 not by reading about it but from a native entity. She spent much of the late 70s and early 80s as its puppet, inadvertently tricking various individuals into visiting SCP-4000 and Naming entities within, until she joined the Serpent's Hand.
  • Speaking of Dr. Wythers, GOC High Command knows she's ex-Serpent's Hand, and that she's been to the Wanderer's Library before. The GOC has repeatedly tried to obtain information from her regarding the Library, but she refuses to divulge any. She is head of the Thaumatic Division of PTOLEMY just as much to keep an eye on her as she is for her extensive knowledge on the subject.
