SCP-457

5 posts in this topic

Ok quick to the punch here.

I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with SCP's or are affiliated with the "Fan page".

Long story short, SCP stands for "Secure. Contain. Protect" and or "Special Containment Procedure". Basically an agency called "The foundation" that finds supernatural entities and items and locations and goes about ways to contain and protect people from them blah blah blah internet fandom fiction BS.

Personally i think its cool like football is to Americans.

So there is SCP 001-2999. How ever i was reading about one that "sparked" (Im really sorry for that pun) my interest...

SCP-457.

Here's the full description from the scp-wiki.net:

------------------------------------

"For all points and purposes, SCP-457 appears to be a sentient being composed of flame. SCP-457's actual composition is unknown, and has proven to be invisible and undetectable by any known means, but is shaped out by the flames it produces, often assuming a human-like form if given sufficient fuel to assume that size. SCP-457's most rudimentary form appears to be that of a single flame, comparable in size to that of a matchstick. In this form, SCP-457 possesses only the simplest of directives and shows no signs of being unusual compared to any other flame beyond a penchant for suddenly flickering to burn human hands, and the ability to 'jump' to more flammable materials or other flames, which it then assimilates into its total form.

As SCP-457 grows larger, it is able to assume more complex shapes, and its intelligence grows with size and fuel sources. SCP-457's method of intelligence is unknown, but upon reaching an approximately human size, SCP-457 almost always assumes a human-like form surrounded by and composed of flames. SCP-457 has been observed to communicate through writing letters out of its own flames, charring them onto the wall or other surfaces, and more rarely through speech, created via high-pressure, superheated air and the crackling and pops of flames. Once SCP-457 reaches an unknown threshold of size and fuel source, SCP-457 splits into two beings, and so on so forth. However, multiple beings of SCP-457 are aggressive towards each other, and will either attempt to consume or extinguish their doubles, especially if there is only a limited amount of fuel at hand.

SCP-457's behavior is largely predictable, as its goals are simply to acquire larger sources of fuel and to spread. The danger of SCP-457 comes from its ability to increase intelligence with size, and apparent ability to learn and mimic behaviors. This has lead to it purposely damaging and sabotaging sprinkler systems and, in rare circumstances, set up relatively complex traps. It has also attempted to trick or reason with personnel to be released or have access to more fuel. Due to SCP-457's unique composition, variable intelligence, and uncooperative nature, its psychology may not be accurately determined in accordance with any human analogy.

SCP-457 was recovered in ██████, █████ in the summer of 2007, after multiple wildfires were attributed to it. It is unknown where or how SCP-457 initially formed. Investigation into the potential of SCP-457 being responsible for other major fires is underway."

SO.

COMPLETELY IGNORING THE FACT ITS FROM A FAN BASED FICTION WEBSITE...

Has anyone ever heard of something similar in terms of kin?

Fire sprites come to mind, they are small and adept at jumping fires from one place to another.

As for human sized flames you would probably be looking for beings like myself, except that I am much larger and the only thing humanoid about me is the body I am inhabiting.

I can understand the survival need in the beings described because they are feeding from a physically based fire which is extremely limited, unlike, universal energy which is not.

Also their attitudes are based on human emotions and assumptions.

Hmm that's interesting. Except I'm assuming you didn't cause the 2007 California Wildfires. Lol kidding.

So you said universal energy is unlimited. Where exactly is the source?

You are right I didn't, as much as I love experiencing fires, I prefer to be the one putting out big fires like that rather than causing them.

Perhaps it's an obvious thing to say but the source is the Universe.

It is in every solid, liquid, gas, wave form, radiation, ray, plasma, matter or vibration humans have ever discovered, and in a great deal more that are not yet described.

.

"Universal energy" has the physical and the none physical parts of the universe built into it.

Generally energy is the product of something. Would it be fair to say perhaps matter would be a source in this case?
