SCP Foundation

Hey, did you know that for the past couple of years I've been writing fiction for the SCP Foundation wiki?

Here's my author page.

Oh that's you? I love the anti-memetics series.

2018-11-24 16:17:11 by qntm:

Yep, that's me. And thank you!

I worked this out a couple of months ago. Seconding the antimemetics division series, it is my very favorite~

Is "CASE HATE RED" a broken link by accident, or is the implication that it is missing in-universe?

2018-11-25 17:12:14 by Omegatron:

It just hasn't been written yet

that dang CASE HATE RED tease on the timeline.

or have i already read it and forgot.

oh god i said that as a joke but a chapter legitimately missing from the story because 3125 would be amazing and infuriating

also I understand why Immemorial worked better without the silly conversation with the totem-thing but it was still amusing.

2018-11-26 00:49:12 by qntm:

Yes, "CASE HATE RED" is the planned title of the next part. As a general rule I will not lie directly to you readers about what's going on in the story. There isn't, like, a kayfabe thing going on here.

It's disappointing about the conversation with SCP-8473, but you wouldn't believe how much material I throw out for most of these chapters. Actually, what's most disappointing is that that segment was intended more as sad than silly, highlighting that Wheeler doesn't really have a personal life, or any friends or loved ones. They are all gone, and she's retroactively been a total loner for years and years, and she doesn't even realise how much she's lost.

Anyway, what with the rest of the chapter, that prologue was irrelevant and distracting. Sometimes you have to get brutal and cut perfectly good content because it isn't appropriate to the tone of everything else. Film editors make equally tough calls all the time.

It may come back in some form. I'm working on it.

I too quite enjoyed reading the antimemetics series a few months ago without realizing who had written it (or even that they were all by the same person).

Is there a way to get an RSS feed of updates?

2018-11-28 00:26:40 by qntm:

The SCP Foundation wiki has an RSS feed of most recently-created pages here:

But it's high-volume feed and statistically very few of those new entries will be Antimemetics stuff or by me.

You can also follow me on Twitter:

But again I tweet about a lot of things which aren't new Antimemetics Division stuff.

If you have an SCP Foundation Wiki account, you could try "watching" this page for changes:

This will send you emails, not put anything into an RSS feed. But recently I've found that watching pages doesn't seem to work...?

Sorry I can't be of more help.

oh yeah i definitely got that the 8473 conversation was supposed to be tragic. i just found it darkly humorous because i'm a bad person.

and I understand needing to be brutal in editing. All this month, for nanowrimo, i've been realizing which fun things will probably not survive a revsion shortly after i've churned them out.

2018-12-09 23:23:19 by Lemma:

I guess this means it's time I started reading SCP Foundation stuff~

Well. I'm *tempted* to, anyway. There's a *lot* of stuff there, right? I don't really have time to be reading something as big as Homestuck.

But, if the antimemetics stories are self contained then I may read those on their own.
