2023 "Absence" Canon Contest Hub

When death has come to its end, when anomaly has ceased emerging, when the Foundation has never founded…

The jigsaw puzzle named normalcy is missing a piece, and the very existence of "anomaly" is composed of it. Whereas there shall be more pieces beyond the puzzle's edge, there shall be more anomalies beyond the known frontier of normalcy. No one is sure about where the next unknown piece may show up, and how it may affect the human world.

And now, the power is in your hand - to remove a jigsaw piece from the world of SCP Foundation.
