SCP-914 Experiment Log Sandbox

Note: This page will be purged every week. If your log is rejected or doesn't adhere to the correct format, make sure to save a copy yourself if you want to try again.

Guidelines for future entries can be found here.


Note to all contributors:

Please include your name on all records, along with the date and the total number of items "refined."

Test Log Format:
All test logs should be written in this form:

**Name:**
**Date:** DD/MM/YYYY
**Total Items:**

**Input:**
**Setting:**
**Output:**


If you want to add a note to a log that has already been ported over, copy that log to the bottom of this page and use this template:

//Suggested Note://


REMINDERS TO CONTRIBUTORS: SCP-914 does not create or destroy matter, nor does it change anything on the atomic level. All outputs should contain all and only the matter included in the input. Some grandfathered entries break this rule, but new entries should never do so.

Additional reminder: 914 is a cheeky little bugger. It's unpredictable and apparently kinda snarky. If the output is exactly what you'd expect from the input, or if 914 has just obligingly improved everything you put in, the entry is out-of-character.

  • LeveritasLeveritas (me) will regularly check this page, selecting logs that are of sufficient quality to add to the log and port them over.
  • Tests that fail to adhere to the proper format (date, etc.) will not be ported until fixed.
  • You can place notes at the end of tests, and feel free to be creative when doing so. It can give some interesting insight into dynamics within the Foundation. Having said that, don't make Foundation personnel look like idiots/psychopaths/juvenile/a combination of those. It's a professional research organisation, not a fraternity ward or a death cult.
  • Not too direct. 914 doesn't talk to researchers directly, it ruins the mystery and it's not clear if the machine is sentient or not. If you put in a note, you don't get a response, you might get something that might be a response if you interpret it a certain way, but it also might be random. Or something else entirely.
If you're not comfortable with your in-universe name being used, politely request a change or come to me about it.

Notice: On another note, changing these notices will result in disciplinary actions, meaning Site banning, not just this log.

Some of you might have noticed that I'm being harsher on notes and logs that I deem too LOLFoundation. To illustrate my point, I'm going to use an example from part IV:

I actually edited the note. This is what it originally was:

This is a very small difference, but it makes a world of difference in tone. The first entry works a lot better because it's not a researcher scolding the machine outright as a kid would. It's implying (read, show don't tell) that the researcher became so fed up with the result that he outright left. Wacky entries work well if it's against the cold professionalism that signifies the Foundation, and it doesn't work if it looks like the employees are acting just as unprofessional.

Conversation about Experiment Log 914 and help for your entries can be found at the 914 Discord server.


Added Logs

Please delete yours as soon as you see it. Thanks! (Logs that have been moved here for more than a day have been shortened to save a little space.)


Denied Logs

Denied or equivalent by mod, as well as drafts that have not been touched for a long time. (Will be deleted after a day without activity.)

General Notes

Notices for everyone.

1. If you didn't bother reading the above division of obviously important text, click here!
2. Mod will remove notes if they are too excessive/LOLFoundation/unprofessional.
3. Part XVII is up and running! Find your tests here.
4. New log-writers, please do not use other writers' characters without asking. It is generally seen as bad form. If you want to use someone's character, most of the writers can be contacted via Wikidot PM or, for a quicker response, the 914 Discord server.
5. Everyone is invited to join the above Discord server. This also facilitates easier communication with the mod. If you notice something wrong with a particular test in Experiment Log 914, you can either point it out in the server or do so below.
6. Please, no more introduction notes. 914 is supposed to be unpredictable, and there’s only so many times it can turn handwriting into different handwriting or a drawing before you start predicting it.

Name: Researcher Ivanov
Date: 12/09/2020
Total Items: Four 500mL beakers of liquid gallium, 136 beakers of chemical waste from other experiments, one bottle of vodka.

Note: Hello there Facility 23! I’m excited to be testing with this incredible machine I’ve heard so much about! - Researcher Ivanov

Input: One 500mL beaker of liquid gallium
Setting: Rough
Output: One pile of glass shards on fire, hot liquid gallium

Input: One 500mL beaker of liquid gallium
Setting: Coarse
Output: One pile of glass shards and one puddle of liquid gallium

Input: One 500mL beaker of liquid gallium
Setting: 1:1
Output: One sphere of glass filled with liquid gallium

Input: One 500mL beaker of liquid gallium
Setting: Fine
Output: One transparent gallium crystal suspended in a glass sphere

Note: Extraordinary! I’ve never seen anything like this. By all accounts, it shouldn’t be possible. I’m going to try something else. - Researcher Ivanov

Input: One 500mL beaker filled with chemical waste from an experiment
Setting: Coarse
Output: One pile of glass shards, five puddles of chemicals

Note: This is incredible! It managed to separate elements from a compound in roughly 5% of the time it would have taken otherwise! I’ll be right back. - Researcher Ivanov

Note: Researcher Ivanov left Facility 23 for two hours, returning in a large van that was loaded with crates of waste byproducts of various chemistry experiments from other Sites.

Tests 7-141 redacted for brevity.

Input: One 500mL beaker filled with chemical waste from an experiment
Setting: Coarse
Output: One pile of glass shards, which flew out of the output chamber at 90 km/h. Eight puddles of liquid. Notably, each test took 15 seconds longer to complete than the last, with Test 142 taking 35 minutes longer to complete.

Note: This is amazing! I’ll come back once I have more to test! - Researcher Ivanov

Input: One bottle of vodka
Setting: Fine
Output: One smashed bottle of vodka. The glass had a cognitohazardous effect that causes viewers to recite instructions on chemical decomposition. Effects wear off after 143 minutes.

Note: Sodium Chloride! Quick, grab some nails and a battery and set up electrolysis! - Researcher Ivanov

Note: Will someone please inform Researcher Ivanov to please clean up the mess from the explosion? I get that I'm the janitor and all, but please, do help me out by cleaning up after yourself. Hazmat suits are in the third right locker on the right in the Janitorial Supplies Room, and try not to damage them with broken glass. They don't grow on trees. - Janitor Molly


Name: Guest Junior Researcher Ericson
Date: 17/09/2020
Total Items: Three flash drives, each containing a copy of the entire webcode of the website 'Serina' in the form of .html files

Note: Okay, this website is basically "throw a bunch of birds onto a planet with an ecosystem that can sustain them and see what happens". - Guest Junior Researcher Ericson

Input: One of the aforementioned drives
Setting: 1:1
Output: One flash drive containing a copy of the entire webcode of the website 'Nymphicina' in the form of .html files. The premise is similar to Serina, but the domestic canary ancestor is replaced with a cockatiel ancestor.

Input: One of the aforementioned drives
Setting: Fine
Output: Similar to input, but the amount of space the website's code took up on the flash drive is noticeably larger, taking up nearly half of the space on the drive. The website retains its original name, but most of the files have more links, more images, and more information.

Note: Permission to read this while on break? - Guest Junior Researcher Ericson

Input: One of the aforementioned drives
Setting: Very Fine
Output: One automaton, in the form of a tadpole-like creature. Capable of anomalous movement in mid-air without any visible means of propulsion other than similar movements to that of a generic tadpole.

While "swam through the air" is visually descriptive, it does not meet clinical tone requirements. Rewritten, please do take a look and check if the original meaning is retained. - Kai

Addendum: Over the course of a week, the automaton slowly changed into a bird-like form, "growing" limbs and feathers. The automaton then "reset", transforming into its tadpole-like form.

Note: Permission to keep an eye on this? If anything fishy happens, I'll let someone know. It'll make Veritas’s life easier. - Guest Junior Researcher Ericson

Take a look at this, a quick guide to apostrophe rules. - Kai

The original meaning is retained in the tadpole passage. Apostrophe changed. - Light


Name: J.R. Regal
Date: 19/09/2020
Total Items: Three pamphlets, one about work safety, one about conspiracy theories, and one about Foundation personnel organization

Input: One pamphlet about work safety
Setting: Fine
Output: One pamphlet with unchanged text that induces extreme paranoia of potential hazards when subjects come into direct contact with it. Testing D-class attempted to exit Research Cell 109-B, citing a sudden and severe fear of SCP-914.

Input: One pamphlet about conspiracy theories
Setting: Fine
Output: One pamphlet that vastly increases suggestibility when subjects come into direct contact with it.

Note: Precautions against cognitohazards were put in place before the next test. - J.R. Regal

Input: One pamphlet about Foundation personnel organization
Setting: Very Fine
Output: One pamphlet with the Foundation logo. When held by Foundation personnel, the subject anomalously gains the ability to command other personnel of lower Security Clearance without opposition or hesitation. Output was only tested on one D-class, two security guards, and one intern.

Addendum: J.R. Regal deemed the output to be too much of a security risk and incinerated it after initial testing resulted in one intern getting affected.

If any intern wants to be mind control be my guess. - Regal


Name: Researcher Hall
Date: 19/09/2020
Total Items: One non-functional PVS 7 night-vision device with no attached head mount or battery

Note: I bought this for my bug-out bag years ago, but I recently managed to drop and break it. Almost three thousand dollars down the drain, so I might as well use it for something. - Researcher Hall

Note: Reminder to all personnel that SCP-914 is not an incinerator. Take a left down the hallway, please. - Dr. Cahill

Input: Aforementioned item
Setting: Very Fine
Output: A slightly luminescent, left-handed flight glove and a matching bracelet made from an adjustable strap. When the glove is worn, the wearer's left eye will anomalously project a real-time colourized Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) stream from the point of view of the eye, albeit at very dim brightness even in low-light conditions. Wearing the bracelet with the glove will widen the field of view of the projection and amplify the brightness to levels in excess of 20,000 lumens (roughly equivalent to a 400 Watt mercury-vapour lamp). The D-Class who wore the items for testing now suffers from permanent blindness in the left eye.

Note: Even with protection, my eyes still hurt. - Researcher Hall

First attempt writing for the site, yay. Thanks to Kai for grammar editing and putting in the note by Dr. Cahill. - North
