ITEM #: SCP-6969


SPECIAL CONTAINMENT PROCEDURES: Subject is to be uploaded onto for the enjoyment of the public. All personnel are recommended to listen at thier earliest convenience. If personnel are thin-skinned, or posses an unhealthy obsession with Japanese culture and entertainment, they are to avoid listening. In the place of listening, said personnel are to be flogged with a wooden paddle upon the posterior as per Procedure 420-Yomomma.

DESCRIPTION: SCP-6969 is a podcast starring Cody Baier, Max Vader, and Andrew Erickson, where the three discuss the popular SCP Foundation wiki, as part of their forays into general geekdom. The Foundation wiki has always been a popular creative hotspot, with upwards of 2000 entries of varying quality. In this episode, Cody, Max, and Andrew go over the best, and the worst, that the wiki has to offer. During the first half of their discussion, an anomaly can be detected at random intervals that suggests the presence of [DATA EXPUNGED]. Other anomalous effects can be seen if a listener has an excessive attachment to Japanese animation, or related fandoms. Should such a person listen, a marked regression of the mind, and loss of logical and intellectual faculties has been recorded. SCP-6969 has been known to cause grown men to act like small, petulant children, and for socially awkward individuals to go “full retard”, as described by Dr. [REDACTED].

    So here are two things: The picture we talked about and the shitty poems so you can experience the EDGINESS firsthand.

    the doctor never tells his god which one he really seeks.
    instead he hides himself away, and quietly, he weeps.
    their god’s own voice, he makes the choice, declaring with their word.
    “in fear and pain let her remain, lest she be like the third.”
    the doctor’s gun ended his run, as he put it to his ear.
    as she was defiled, the pitied child, he gave it to his fear.
    her memory a fickle thing, the strongest shall endure.
    when her weeping starts to waver, their drugs make her mind pure.

    And the second poem:

    seven seals, seven rings.
    seven brides for the scarlet King
    they gather round the natal bed, the foolish and the wise.
    they fear the child yet to be born, whose voice shall rend the skies.
    the faithful watch the forest for the coming of the King.
    their lanterns bright, they wait at night for the new world he shall bring.
    the dragon waits in shadows, his breath will scorch the land.
    the hero in the castle draws his sword and makes his stand.
    the princess in the tower is hidden far away.
    but nothing under heaven can keep The Groom at bay.
    they gather round with leering smiles, the soulless and the dead.
    though her soul unwinds, the cruelest minds will keep her in her bed.
    the potter told his ‘prentice to prepare him seven jars.
    six he made with grace and skill, the last his hands did mar.
    the cretin moon no more is howling, gone its mourning black.
    in their dreams its face is prowling, come to take them back.
    the hens were in the henhouse and seven eggs did lay,
    till the fox crept in by dark of night and stole the eggs away.
    six were broken by their bindings six no more shall sing.
    comes the seventh full unwinding and all the bells will ring.
    when the first had given birth, then all the birds did sing.
    her screaming cries did shake the skies, as she called out for her King.
    by doctor’s blade the second bade a life into the world.
    untimely hewn neath a silent moon, the King’s red flag unfurled.
    his bride the third remained unheard, her cries for help ignored.
    she stopped her life with a surgeon’s knife, and gave it to Our Lord.
    the fourth prepares a dagger and places it at her heart.
    the perfect cure cannot make pure what the King has set apart.
    the fifth one’s crown was bearing down upon the fox’s set.
    the den was sundered with mighty thunder, an apocalypse beget.
    on the sixth’s day, the walls gave way, and the oceans turned to ash.
    her birth gave work, as the earth shook, underneath the King’s fell lash
    the seventh bride will break the tides the moon no more will shine.
    there comes a day not far away she’ll birth the death of time.

    you know after seeing a lot of your backlog of episodes. I think I realize that my favorite episodes are ones like these where you make fun of the bad and point out a lot of the good (It’s what got me into Blazblue).
    But episodes where you essentially dispense your scorn and ridicule the thing in question for a majority of the episode while deserved can get a bit boring after awhile.

    LeighAnn is credited as part of the cast, but she’s not in this episode…

    So, I’ve learned a couple things TOS listeners will need to know when y’all eventually write about an SCP (take it from an overswamped writer, it’s unavoidable as a good writing exercise):

    First, make sure you have at least basic literacy skills…

    1. Absolutely no rape whatsoever (No problems in communication there, Max).

    2. Cody prefers inanimate objects or creatures to humanoid characters. & those are likely to be more unique & interesting.

    3. Thinking outside the box is imperative. No shadows or commonly used monsters, hell, just make something from the ground up.

    4. Don’t treat it like a creepypasta. Showcase an interesting concept & stick with it. Hell, get your kid to write one. It’s bound to be better than some, if not all, of the bad ones discussed in this podcast.

    Now you’ve got the basic tools to gain The Other Side’s acceptance & jumpstart a decent idea to boot! Play nice, children!

      To be fair, there are some interesting human(oid) ones (The Old Man; God; the doctor who operates on machinery), but they’re in the minority.
