Ajmansfield's mwikidot nightmage magic


1. full source reference thing

Proper explanation
<AJMansfield>: well we can start with just numbers for now, and you can at least draft it up with that while I work out how to get letters
<AJMansfield>: if you open up the page source I can explain how to use it
<AJMansfield>: the first bit (the [[module CSS]] part) you put at the top of the page
<AJMansfield>: and the [[bibliography]] bit you put at the end
<AJMansfield>: put ((bibcite <label>)) anywhere you want some hover text stuff
<Fausto>: All right
<AJMansfield>: and for each one, put ": <label> : <the text you want>" inside the biblography block
<Fausto>: Ill cpypaste the sample in my sandbox meanwhile, so I will start with it tomorrow
<AJMansfield>: alright
<Fausto>: So, that means only the stuff I put within label is getting affected, right?
<Fausto>: The article will be able to recognze regular footnotes s well=
<AJMansfield>: yep
<AJMansfield>: also the label can be whatever you want, it just tells wikidot that the ((bibcite)) line should use the text with that label in the [[bibliography]] part

Smapti's challenge


Future idea:

foundation-bred anomaly sniffer dogs (Dr_leonard's working on it)

venezuela is anomalous (WIP)
Chavez is also Anomalous

Yous character is a Buendia. deal with it

A Keter level humanoid joke SCP… As my first attempt (i already got the idea).

Sand into salt SCP.

A videobeam the give life to any shadow projected on the screen.

An aprocryphal (and memetic) book of the bible that can only be spreaded using verbal language.

School council forbiding stuff necessary for life and people who amnage to survive despite that

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: An electric fence has been erected along the perimeter of SCP-XXXX. This fence is to be patrolled at all times by no less than four armed security personnel, who are to deter and detain any trespassers.Testing with instances of SCP-XXXX-1 must be preemptively approved by Site Director Buendia.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a coffee plantation 5 square kilometers in size, located on ███████, in Colombia. SCP-XXXX anomalous effects manifest on coffee made from its seeds (hereby called SCP-XXXX-1) harvested and processed within its boundaries. Testing has shown that coffee bushes are not intrinsically anomalous, as reinserted instances are affected by SCP-XXXX's anomalous traits and removed instances cease to show previous anomalies.

If SCP-XXXX-1 is consumed by a human being (hence referred as the Subject), an instance of SCP-XXXX-2 will appear in the vicinity. SCP-XXXX-2 is an exact replica of a deceased family member or close relative of the Subject. SCP-XXXX-2 is sapient and retains all memories of the deceased they represent; however, in % of the cases SCP-XXXX-2 instances appear to be older than their original counterparts at time of death. SCP-XXXX-2 will remain active for 25-40 minutes until it vanishes.

SCP-XXXX-1 must be consumed alone, as additives such as sugar cease all SCP-XXXX-1 anomalous effects. Test subjects have universally described SCP-XXXX-1 as "smoky" and "nostalgic" regardless of previous record of regular coffee consumption.

[[a hammer]]

Neutralization test-██████████ aftermath. Picture taken by civilian shortly before evacuation.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All the relevant research results for PROJECT GREEN TULPA and PROJECT DREAMLAND have been scrubbed from this file.

a hammer is storaged within an apex-class security locker. Testing with a hammer has been indefinitely suspended.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation to indirectly classify the successful instances created by PROJECT TLÖN, a proof-of-concept aiming to conceptually reinforce real and theoretical objects in baseline reality.

Instances can only be directly described by their objective features. Any attempt to misdescribe them will fail . Furthermore, experimentation involving born blind subjects has revealed that they can, when directed to describe SCP-XXXX instances, describe their features without any further prompt or hint.

a hammer is a tool that consists of a heavy piece of metal or wood at the end of a handle. It is used, for example, to hit nails into surfaces, break things into pieces, shape and/or reshape other objects, and as a blunt weapon for either defensive and/or offensive purposes.

- a hammer's head is of variable colour. Usually silver, black, blue, red, among others.
- a hammer's handle is of variable material. Usually wood, glass fiber, metal, among others.
- a hammer is gooey was gooey3

SCP-XXXX-2 was an artifical conceptually reinforced construct. SCP-XXXX-2 was intentionally designed to possess mismatched characteristics and to be used under very specific and counterintuitive conditions. Once all useful data was gathered, SCP-XXXX-2 was dismantled. This confirmed [DATA EXPUNGED]

Incident ██████████-1: On ██/██/████, several hours after a hammer's initial classification, Foundation webcrawlers detected a spike of a hammer's initial designation throughout the internet. Further inspection confirmed ██████████ was being used as a synonym to refer hammers. Furthermore, individuals could not recognize the discrepancies caused by its usage. All references throughout the internet were edited and a hammer's designation was changed. There has not been any further incidents regarding ██████████.

Incident: During a scheduled experiment with a hammer, there was a sudden sound and an initially unidentified mass ejected from a hammer. When inspected, it was found to be a solid body of metal attached to a damaged cylindrical piece of wood. a hammer was inspected and showed no changes. During the following hours, several other pieces were ejected despite a hammer showing no changes. Unidentified pieces were stored for further experimentation research is suspended indefinitely.

Ma_iceAF Fausto: you have time to look at a small 600-word prose thing for the Wanderers' Library site?
17:10 Fausto Sure!
17:11 Ma_iceAF http://wanderers-sandbox.wikidot.com/maft, under the heading "Expyrean"
17:11 Fausto Send it and I'll chew it over after I get some basic super late xmas dinner cooking.
17:11 Rounzie Faust this is interesting, but I'm not sure I quite get it, though I think thats intentional
17:12 Rounzie Fausto rather, a few small things I'd include gray in the colors of a hammer, and rephrase the materials to something like 'a hammers handle may be made of multiple materials, such as …'
17:13 Fausto Excellent.
17:13 Rounzie Overall the end makes me think that it was being used to contain a gun or someone/thing that had a gun
17:13 Fausto I'll change it shortly.
17:13 Fausto It's more dangerous that a gun though
17:13 Rounzie I think its kind of going for a similar kind of thing as the SCP about concepts getting messed up and someone being identified as a wallet I think
17:13 Fausto (a hammer is the physical concept of hammers drawn out to out reality by accident)
17:14 Ma_iceAF Fausto: okay, I really like the base concept (pun not intended), but it feels similar to a few other things without necessarily bringing anything new to the table
17:14 Rounzie sort of seems like the foundation trying to use that or the toasters properties
17:14 Rounzie ok so it was by accident and applied to something?
17:14 Fausto I actually trimmed a lot of the article. I wanted it to be short and misterious, since I always overexplain a lot.
17:14 Ma_iceAF I'm a sucker for metaphysical stuff, but this doesn't have any particular originality beyond simply being… metaphysical
17:15 Ma_iceAF honestly, short and mysterious is the way I like to go too
17:15 Popsioak Metaphysical for the sake of being metaphysical
17:15 Ma_iceAF this just feels like it brings a lot to the table, and then leaves it there in a messy heap
17:15 Ma_iceAF and the heap's not particularly interesting to look at
17:15 Fausto Ha! Exactly what I've been thinking
17:15 Rounzie I think you might have error a little too far, as I think it could use more info about whats going on, to lead the reader. As I said it reminds me of another one which I think did a really good job of juggling talking about it without being able to directly describe what it is
17:16 Rounzie When it says it was designed for counterintuitive results it sounds like the foundation is doing this on purpose
17:16 Ma_iceAF I love the use of 'a hammer' to refer to a perfectly generic platonic ideal of a hammer, and I love the ejection of non-hammer hammers at the end
17:16 Fausto Rounzie: this one is the other way around. It must be described, but I need to see what goes in and out.
17:16 Fausto Rounzie: yup
17:17 Fausto Ma_iceAF: the fact that you got it makes me happy to no end, but I'll see what I can do to make it be different.
17:17 Fausto What do you think? How may I go on a different route on this one?
17:17 Ma_iceAF this feels like it has a lot of threads of stories, none of which are made clear enough to get engaged with, and none of which are explored or explained enough to be satisfying
17:18 Rounzie I guess my thoughts are I'm interested but I don't get it, I'd like to, but I don't currently
17:18 Fausto Ma_iceAF: It's the first article from a few things I am about to write. The idea is that these new pieces will have the other parts that I itnetionally scrubbed from this article.
17:18 Rounzie I might think about putting some stuff you cut back in if it makes it clearer whats going on, or more about who did it and how, if that might lead the reader more easily
17:18 Fausto intentionally*
17:19 Ma_iceAF Fausto: I feel like reader enjoyment would be increased if you took each of the threads and made them their own articles. Keep thematic links but lose the chronological and narrative ones
17:19 Rounzie I'm not sure it stands on its own thought right now, at least for me. But good luck, seems an interesting road to go down.
17:20 Fausto In short, a hammer is a failure but the project was successful. Reinforced objects are inmune to a series of things, but most importantly, these are inmune to realit bending (this is from Project DREAMLAND)
17:20 Ma_iceAF The "this affects the internet" one would be interesting, as would the "containing something" one. "Hammers were gooey", "non-hammer hammers", and "we have platonic ideals of weapons at our disposal" all make great stories on their own
17:20 Ma_iceAF but this feels like it's setting up a lot and not making any significance narrative progress towards anything
17:21 Ma_iceAF which makes it less like reading a story and more like looking at the cover
17:21 Ma_iceAF without anything behind it, it's not a very good article
