Reading Recommendations from the French branch

There are thousands and thousands of pages on this site, whether translated or original. And when one wishes to start reading them, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by such a tremendous amount of content. SCP articles, their supplementary or collaborative pages, their experiment logs, the associated and independent tales, the tales linked to canons, GoI formats, the stories of the Wanderers' Library, the joke articles, the explained articles… There is so much to read that sometimes, we do not know which way to turn!

In order to fish out the readers which would be drowned in so many texts and guide the newcomers on these unpredictable tides, here is a short list. It includes a bit of everything, so that it shows a brief tour d'horizon of what the French branch of the Foundation can offer to its readers. A glimpse of the originality that the many contributors to the site have been able to develop along the years, in order to constantly reinvent themselves and explore new writing and storytelling techniques.

The list is divided in several sections. First, the formatted texts include all texts written according to a particular format. These include the SCP articles and GoI formats. Second, the narrative texts have a wide variety of very diverse forms. Tales make up the most of this section. You will also find a small section showcasing the French texts of the Wanderers' Library and a discovery section dedicated to canons.
