    I really love the idea behind SCP-1252.

    There's something about SCP-1867 that always makes me smile.

    I wish I had time to look for the SPC about the four horsemen of the apocalypse being four old guys hanging out in a diner.

    SCP 2029-j, a stupid malevolent AI.

    SCP 2114, a colony of rats that like to disassemble and reassemble mechanical and electronic devices.

    I've just been reading SCP at work lately because they're not giving me things to do oops
    Some interesting ones that I've liked lately:
    • The Olympia project, utilizing various SCPs (like 914 and the soul harvester thingy) to make a super human and then mass-produce them. Man they went through a LOT of D-class on this one. The last part isn't finished so idk how well the mass producing part went.
    • 480 (or 408?) the illusionary butterflies. They're utilized pretty heavily in a fic to kill the witch child (which is nice because she's a reality-bender and they convince her she's a witch and she can only do certain spells from her spell book to control her).
    Classic faves I can't be bothered to look up the number for if I can't remember it.
    • Bouncy ball of doom. It doubles the kinetic energy per bounce so you can figure out how well that goes
    • "The flesh that hates." Some sort of disease in bumblefuck Russia that makes you all melty slimey and good. There's some good research logs where they investigate the town and find some good stuff.
    • 93? The red disk. You stick it on a mirror, it turns a color and you go in to a different world. There's, uh, stuff going on read the research logs in order it's a really good reveal.
    • The Voyager probe but from an alternate dimension/timeline. Has a good sound file attached to it and also makes you think about who will find our probe IRL.
    • The depressed albatross. Good ethical questions about what it really means to secure, contain and "protect." Ended up sparking a discussion with my ornithologist friend on the feasibility of keeping alive a colony of albatrosses.

  9. I keep trying to get into the Flesh That Hates research logs, but the goddamn writing snob in me won't have any of it.

    Just another example of Skaven being the best faction.

    SCP-439 was my first (outside of the usual SCP-173) and thus holds a special place in my heart even after I stopped checking out SCPs. The addendum's always stuck with me, that's what I remember most from it.

    The lolFoundation hijinks stuff that's frowned upon these days is pretty fun reading. I can see how it must've gotten out of control once bad writers started trying to ride the coattails of the good ones with cringey tryhard humor, but the best examples hold up well.

    That universe lends itself well to humor, and I wish there were a few writers who could put forth a serious effort to make the -J section a major part of the site.

    My favorite ones would probably be the old cabinet you can go into with a horrid monster, the clockwork virus, and that machine that can break apart of make things better.

    Also that fantasy book is kind of awesome, maybe moreso than the Timecrowave, the Pizza Box, and the Vending Machine, all of which were also favorites of mine.

    Seems my favourite SCP (SCP-701) is part of a larger mythos - The Court of Alagadda mythos.

    SCP-2264 (In the Court of Alagadda)

    One I think is really underrated (or maybe I'm just biased as a WWI sperg) is SCP-186. The letter at the end...brrr...

    That's a good one. I'm always a sucker for War is Literally Hell stories.

    It's likely been posted, but SCP-3200. There's something utterly terrifying about reality-tearing SCPs that aren't reality-benders.

    Edit: The really unsettling parts are the unfolding mission logs.
