Cyantreuse's Sandbox

Attn: Broken Masquerade peeps

I'll keep track of feedback from y'all I've acted upon here:

Friday the 17th ~22:00 EST: Borders changed from red to black, Oprah section changed from yellow to gray, considering nixing the 'no images' thing because someone suggested using some of the in-universe ads and posters that are in tales somewhere on the hub

Saturday the 18th ~16:00 EST: Images added.

"I'm just saying that it was the right thing to do at the time. It might not be the right thing to do right now. It might not be the right thing to do again for quite some time. But right then? It was the right thing to do."

"Are you saying, Mr. Cle-"

"That's Doctor."

"Apologies, Doctor. Are you saying, Dr. Clef, that these people deserved to die?"

"Not at all, Oprah. I'm saying that, at the time, we had no other choice if we wanted to understand how this device worked. Through that understanding, we were able to hide the object from the public and preserve more people's lives than were lost."

"The good of the many, Dr. Clef?"

"The good of the many, Oprah."

"And now that the veil of secrecy has been lifted?"

"We do things differently, but we still have to do things. Have to study."

"But why, Doctor?"

"Korea."

Ripped from the Headlines
by DrEverettMannDrEverettMann

"Everything's changed today. There are others like me. Can you imagine? I'm not alone. Not really."

The Executions of Doctor Bright
by DrEverettMannDrEverettMann

"Occasionally, one of the others would move, and he'd hear them cry out after they were corrected. He held still. He had a lot of experience being a captive."

Research Notes of RJ Tellar
by ArlecchinoArlecchino

"Good journalism is seeing what's happening now. They wanna write history, they can. My job is turning the low-hanging fruit into gold."

Joseon
by ArlecchinoArlecchino

"They'd tried for weeks to get something above the 38th parallel, but in the end, given it up as a bad job. Thelmann System's stated goal of having a total coverage weather prediction system would have to do without North Korea for now."

The Truth is Out There
by SilberescherSilberescher

"Something… is happening… in Kansas."

Ethical?
by MontalaMontala

"Procedures deemed unethical will be revised. If no revision is possible, containment on the object will cease. If the object itself is deemed inherently inimicable to human life, it shall be destroyed without exception."

Six Letters Addressed to the SCP Foundation (and One Letter Home)
by ahbonjourahbonjour

"There's a great one of you, you're in the middle of this big crowd of policemen and military and scientists, and you're looking right at the camera…you look like you're on fire. You look so brave, so strong. You made me feel so proud."

A Lesson in Power
by renacerrenacer

"She could hear it now, its labored breath that seemed a mix of a whimper and a death rattle. She hoped to not touch it. Another step forward. Either Dr. Kowalski was close enough to feel the heat of its breath or the tension was setting her blood on fire."

SCP-3241 ("The SS Sommerfeld")
by The Great HippoThe Great Hippo

"Wherever you are, Mr. DeVorn, you ought to get down on your knees and thank God Almighty that the Foundation has changed. Because back in my day? This story wouldn't end with some sort of — some sort of fucking 'inquiry'. It would end with you in an orange jump-suit, thrown into the deepest, darkest hole we could find."

On the Outskirts
by stormbreathstormbreath

"When the Illuminati hijacks your life and doesn't tell you anything, you start to itch there at your collar. You try to figure out what they really want from you, what they really want from the world, and most importantly, who the everloving fuck they actually are."

And What Was a Soul to That Blank White World
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

"I have no need for a memory of my life before this. The prospect of it seems painful. Whatever my meaning was previous to this has been outweighed by usefulness, potential or otherwise, and that’s fine."

Items Seized, March 2022, Site-42 Sapient Object Containment
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

"Hi Mr. Trauss, thank you for standing in the halls all night while one of the monsters was out. I just turned 15 and thanks to you I didn't have to be scared all night on my birthday. Thank you for protecting me."

Sex, Drugs, Money (adult content warning)
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

"On April 20th, you enter SCP-5527’s chamber carrying a folder. You proceed into the bathroom where you are then seen showing them the contents, which are out of frame. Analysts from Information Security did note when reviewing feeds that the two of you are both clearly seen smiling, talking, and embracing."

Paperpushing
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

"What I've found from cross-referencing my experiences with the Foundation as a whole versus my experiences with individual personnel leads me to one conclusion: The Foundation does not punish its operatives for existing as unique individuals with personal ethics and convictions, but rather renders those personal beliefs and behaviors obsolete."

Oceanus, Father to All
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

"She'd lost a significant chunk of basic functions before she realized what was happening; notably, how to drive a car, how to chew and swallow, and the fact that the metal rack in an oven set to 425 degrees Fahrenheit shouldn't be grabbed without a mitt. The civilian paramedics took care of that part, thankfully, but they can't fix her memory. I'm starting to worry that maybe we can't, either."

You're a Toy, Mr. Sanderson
by CyantreuseCyantreuse

""It's him- well, it's his chip specifically, rather. It's really starting to look like someone messed around with the files, which I know is unlikely given his clean record and good behavior, but I don't think we should rule anything out."
