The Sharkest Timeline

Canon Hub » The Sharkest Timeline

Derided by the "civilized" nations of the world.
Indoctrinated by Sharkic influence.
Mocked as the "Shark Punching Center".

This is the world of the Centre.

Eons ago, in an unknowable place, a Mistake was made. And for centuries, mankind's greatest philosophers have tried to determine its nature. The legends of Terra Australis claim that the Great Whale Selachian that defines our reality was unjustly slain, trapping us in a broken world. Theologians of the Boatswains of the Cog of God assert that this reality is a proving ground, meant to separate the righteous from the impure through glorious tribulation. And the Sharkics of the Global Ocean claim that there is no mistake; that this world is one where the strong rule — as they deserve.

Only recently have the Centre's Patafisticians found the true origin of our reality. We have always assumed that the presence of various "SCP" organizations throughout the local multiverse were part of a natural multiversal variation. But that's not true.

The natural order of the universe is "SCP".

We stem from a translocation of the two letters at the end:

"SCP" to "SPC".

Our lives are a joke.

But no one's laughing now.

Setting Information

What is the Sharkest Timeline?


The Sharkest Timeline is a writing project aimed at reconstructing and resurrecting the original "central storyline" of the Shark Punching Centre.

The Sharkest Timeline finds its earliest inspirational roots in SCP-1449 and It Always Has Been, It Always Has Not Been, both by DjoricDjoric. In broad strokes, these stories envision a divergence from the Foundationverse into something we will call (for the sake of comparison) the Centreverse. The divergence is caused by a universal reality-altering event, but it was not a one-time event — it can happen again. The present state of the Centreverse depends on the relationship that relevant parties have to the punching of sharks. When this relationship changes, the entire universe forces a transformation into a different version of itself: One in which the relationship to punching sharks remains, at the expense of reality. Thus, in these articles we see two radically different Centreverses emerge:

  • A less-developed world in which Selachiosk Pungix Combin, a loose collection of fraternal nomads, engages in shark-punching purely for their own survival.
  • A hyper-advanced world in which The Center, a global superpower, has mastered the art of shark-punching, and whose society and social customs are incomprehensible.

In 2015 and 2016, writers MrWrongMrWrong and sirpuddingsirpudding came around and established something new: What matters is whether the act of shark-punching remains funny. When the Powers That Be (AKA The Mistaken Beast, which represents the real-world contributors of the SCP Wiki, S. Andrew Swann's "Horror Writers") no longer consider shark-punching "funny", the universe course-corrects and transforms itself into something far more absurd and ridiculous. In other words, whenever the Centre stops punching sharks, or when their means of punching sharks are no longer considered funny, their universe course-corrects so that it is remains funny.

The Sharkest Timeline represents that "far more absurd and ridiculous" universe.

What are some of its absurd features?


Thousands of years ago, a universe similar to the Foundationverse underwent a massive shift in reality, and the Centreverse emerged from its ashes. So began the Sharkest Timeline.

This is not a world where neoliberal global capitalism reigns supreme. It is a world run by an underwater cabal of power- and flesh-hungry human-shark-octopus abominations known as the Sharkic cults.

This is not a world where the Anomalous is secured, contained, and protected. In fact, there is no Veil to speak of. It is a world in which various groups use and abuse the Deviant (AKA the Anomalous) to manage and maintain the Global Ocean, power their technology, and help them punch sharks better than other groups.

It is a world where the Daeva died in a boating accident, and the Centre continually resurrects them via the Chronicle of Daeva so as to learn their increasingly advanced techniques for punching sharks.

How does the Sharkest Timeline differ from regular SPC?


Regular SPC does not necessarily need to follow these rules; it has fewer constraints. The Sharkest Timeline, however, is anything that

  1. follows these rules,
  2. is set in a shared universe with other articles that follow these rules, and
  3. does not contradict other articles in the Sharkest Timeline in a way that cannot be explained in-universe.

See the "On SPC-001" tab for more details on a major rule.
