SCP: 3812

Today I want to talk to you about SCP–3812.

This particular SCP is a favourite of mine due to the levels that it works on. Has an incredible level of power over reality, which in itself is scary, but it also suffers from a severe mental illness that affects how it perceives the world around it. These two things combined make a highly unpredictable, powerful and terrifying creature. While it does not seem to exhibit malice it doesn’t have to in order to be dangerous.

SCP: SCP-2678

Today I want to talk to you about SCP – 2678.

SCP – 2678 is perhaps one of the creepier SCP’s, as while it doesn’t seem to contain monsters/physical threats, it is steeped in atmosphere and has strong influences to harm being done to children. The entire SCP is incredibly eerie and one of the SCPs that doesn’t seem to have been fully explored and so the element of mystery remains. Especially as according to the SCP Wiki the access point has been resealed and disguised as a bookshelf and all previously scheduled explorations have been cancelled.

SCP: SCP-5002

Today I want to talk to you about a neutralised SCP. 

Neutralised being the word used when an SCP loses its power/ability/life. An object can be neutralised by being destroyed, though the SCP foundation is not known for deliberately destroying SCP’s. An SCP can also be neutralised by having its ability removed.

SCP-5002 was neutralised via death, however.

Katie Recommends: Festive SCPS!

The SCP Foundation is a great way to experience horror. It’s got little bits of everything, from Lovecraftian ancient gods to haunted objects and unexplained occurrences.

One of my favourite YouTube channels specialises in explaining SCP’s, looking at the potential thought and inspiration behind them (My favourite exploration they did, the one that got me hooked was The Deer, I highly recommend giving it a go).

In the spirit of the season today i want to share with you one of their festive explorations.


A Bit of Fun: Lord Bung: Containment

So, as many of you will already know, I’m a big fan of the creative writing project that is the SCP Foundation.

Not only do I enjoy the website itself, but I also love the explanation and readings videos you find on YouTube. Recently, however, I stumbled across something else. Lord Bung, a YouTube animator who makes various cartoons and rants.

He also makes a series called Containment, set in the SCP Universe.

The series tells the story of Connor, a chap with regenerative immortality and it’s marvellous. It’s witty, well made, well written and had me laughing all the way through.

I strongly recommend it.


Oversimplified SCP

Today I want to share something a bit fun with you.

I talk a lot about how Horror is a flexible genre, lending itself to novels, comics, games, and films. I’ve also talked at length before about how the internet has created an awesome new outlet for horror in the form of Creepypastas, like digital urban legends or campfire stories for the modern age.

One of my favourite spooky things the internet has created is the SCP Foundation.

For those who don’t know the SCP Foundation is an online creative writing project with hundreds of contributors. It borrows from Horror, Sci-fi and Fantasy (probably why I love it so much) and tells the story (in the form of reports, interviews, logs etc) of the SCP Foundation, SCP standing for Secure, Contain, Protect. The Foundation Secures and Contains individuals, entities, locations, and objects that have anomalous properties E.G: they are bloody strange or cause strange/supernatural/unexplained things to happen when you encounter them.

Some SCP’s are funny, some are sad, some are interesting and some are downright terrifying. It’s absolutely marvellous and if you’ve not experienced it yet, I strongly recommend you do.

That being said, it can be a tricky universe to break into, as there’s an awful lot of it and it’s hard to know where to begin.

But never fear, for I have come today with a wonderful little gem.

A manga knows as Oversimplified SCP, it’s adorable even when it’s telling the story of The Shy guy (not something I thought possible before).

This is a great way to experience the SCP universe for the first time (or the millionth time) as it gives a little taster in an easily digestible format.

Go on, give it a go!


CreepyPasta: 1999

Creepy Pasta is a relatively new way to enjoy the Horror Genre. These stories are the modern equivalent of urban legends, stories spread through the internet and springing from the phrase copypasta. They are a mix of found footage, urban legends and typical ghost stories.  Effectively modern-day campfire stories, only instead of hearing them by firelight you read or listen to them via the light of your screen.

I love Creepypastas, absolutely adore the medium. I listen to podcasts regularly ranging from the SCP Foundation Reports to Lost Episodes and Video Game pastas.

I am determined to do my bit to make the medium even more popular than it already is, by running a series talking about the most popular creepypastas.

While some of these are not my personal favourite there is no denying that they are well received by readers and listeners alike and I want to cover the most popular pastas for the simple reason that my goal is to introduce as many people as possible to the medium and how better to do so than with the most popular, well-received tales on offer.

Today’s pasta of choice is called ‘1999’

My Top 4 Scariest SCP’s

SCP – Secure Contain Protect

The SCP Foundation works to secure anomalies, containing them and protecting humanity from the dangers that they pose. The anomalies range from objects to living creatures, from places to distortions. These anomalies are categorized as SCP’s with varying levels of danger and containment required.

The wiki is chock full of interesting, funny and terrifying articles about the SCP’s themselves, and many bloggers, YouTubers and writers have made list upon list of them. I’ve categorized my own list explaining the SCP and why I think it is so effective at giving us the chills.

In no order here is my Top Four Scariest SCPS.
