    Let's face it, Quirk. You are SCP famous now.

    EDIT: Also should 973 perhaps be Keter, seeing as it cannot be contained?

    Dosen't seem that dangerous enough to reach keter yet, as:
    1. he still could be out-ran'd
    2. he's just one cop, and can't kill that fast, unlike some other euclid SCPs.
    3. the GOC probably took care of it long ago without hardship.

    Plus, y'know, he ain't coming after you if you're not in a car or going slower than 35 mph.

    I feel like I'm missing a lot. Why is 973 getting featured important? And is that whole shark thing referencing something else?

    I wrote both 973 and the thing with the sharks.

    The only problem I have with that is the (DATA EXPUNGED). It's a letter. Why.

    Sure thing! Using the example of old war documents, a nice paper texture and the SCP logo I knocked out a couple of templates:





    Then I used the Albertsthal Typewriter font for that authentic SCP typewritten document look and Verily Serif Mono for the governmental type. Post-that, I just grabed a calligraphic brush from one of my old GIMP brush sets and drew all over it to make it look AUTHENTICALLY REDACTED.

    Simple!

    Also man I [DATA EXPUNGE] my letters all the time

    It confuses the hell out of the people I'm writing to (which reminds me: the drawback of that font is that its square brackets look like normal brackets)

    Ah, okay. Well good job. I remember reading 973 a while back and its definitely one of the ones that stick in my mind. And I've read a lot of scps. I actually think of it sometimes while driving home from work.

    The sharks thing is a bit lolrandom for my tastes though.

    Someone should write an article about SPC as an SCP or SPC as a SCP frontline company.

    Re: Welcome to the Foundation

    I went through a couple of iterations for this one, but I think I've finally found a good fixed-width font to make it look properly governmental. GIMP is still a bit finicky about inserting images, though. From now on I'll spoil these

    I can't tell if that was an implied reprimand or a compliment!

    It is sometimes very difficult to tell in the textual medium.

    I'm guessing compliment. Because I'm seconding it.

    I'm reminded of the long-abandoned effort to put all the articles on the site into pdf format. Now that 1-1000 are filled up, maybe it could be done again...

    Re: Welcome to the Foundation

    1) Quirk, were you the one who did 973? Because I just read that article now and somehow this particular SCP seems scary as all hell. Excellent work!

    2) Also, props to Ash for those excellent documents. They look like legit government documents and it leads one to believe that you've stolen some files from the foundation and scanned them onto the internet.

    3) You know, I did once create a being that...well, maybe I should just write that short story down, post it here and ask if it could be a good SCP at a later juncture. Nevermind, continue with your business as usual...

    Thanks, man. The really funny thing is that, if memory serves correctly, 973 was my second article on the site.

    Really? Sweet.

    But no matter; the fact is that you basically created the State Trooper from Hell and I imagine that I would literally have the shit scared out of me if that thing locked me in it's crosshairs.

    And the only way to avoid it for sure is to drive very, very slowly, so that doesn't help.

    I'm blushing! And I've finished my template triptych with the document covers. Have also updated the letter up there to looking properly aged and highlighted.

    D-Class subject ordered to drive through zone, carrying five boxes of donuts within the car.

    Result: Subject was killed. Internal organs were arranged to spell out "I HATE SPRINKLES".

    @ash - Yeah, you should totally take those all to the SCP forums. Maybe make a how-to guide.

    I would be very interested in reading the inevitable addendum for this revelation.

    Bonus points if it can convey a sense of WTF while keeping within the dry, clinical style of the reports.

    ...QUICK, THROW THAT PACKAGE OF TIM HORTONS AT THE HORRIFYING DEMON COP!
