Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1039 is to be kept in one empty room. A large curtain has been hung in front of the mirror and no one is to open it without permission from Dr.███. If a person does open the curtain, a lockdown must take place for at least twenty minutes before letting the person out. Anyone who does open the curtain will be subject to a psychological examination and will be working with SCP-██ for a week.
Description: SCP-1039 is a small red mirror with runes surrounding it's edges. The runes around are ███. The top side says 'Think hard.' and the bottom side says 'And you will become it.'. The sides of the mirror say 'Careful.'. Whoever looks into the mirror can become whatever they're thinking of, provided that the object is also an animal, and that the person knows exactly what they want to turn into. Inorganic objects can also only transform into inorganic objects, ex: a hammer can transform into something like a marker. However, inorganic transformations have only occurred when someone attempts to destroy SCP-1039.
Also, the person will only become that thing for twenty minutes. After that, the person will change back. The changing process is painful, as people will scream and vomit as the mirror changes and deconstructs their bodies to build them into something new, only to change them right back with the same amount of pain. Scars have been known to be left behind, and one subjects body was [DATA REDACTED] after trying to turn back. Several subjects have tried to smash the mirror in revenge, however all attempts to smash the mirror have failed, as the runes turn anything that tries to destroy them into something harmless-like a kitten-before transforming it back. This also happens with inorganic objects, and it is this behavior that has made Dr.███ think that the mirror can read the thoughts of others even when they aren't thinking about things to be transformed into. This is likely, however, there are no possible ways of testing this. SCP-1039 is currently being stored in Sector-██. This brings up the question of just how SCP-1039 gained telepathy without having a brain to begin with, which is still unknown.
Additional Notes: SCP-1039 was found in an abandoned house after several children had been proclaimed to have 'transformed into animals.'. A nearby agent heard of the story, and upon looking at it, started his usual daydream of being a lemur. After the painful transformation process and after returning to normal, the agent secured the mirror. The area was then administered amnesiacs.
Addendum 1039-B: Dr.███'s Test Logs
Subject: D-144, female Caucasian, 35 years old, 170kg, 166cm tall.
Actions: Subject looked upon mirror and went pale. Subject seemed to be frozen in place as the runes upon the mirror lit up in a blue color. Subject was covered by said glow and the subject started to scream and cry in pain. The glow upon the runes and the subject grew larger, and the larger the glow, the more the subject felt the pain, even puking once before the color obscured her for a few seconds before going away completely to reveal a cheetah. Subject limped around for a few moments, and scars were visible upon her. After twenty minutes, she changed back the same way with even more scarring on her.
Subject: D-149, male Caucasian, 44 years old, 180kg, 150cm tall.
Actions: [DATA REDACTED]
Subject: D-156, male Caucasian, 42 years old, 160kg, 156cm tall.
Actions: Subject turned into a Komodo Dragon in the same way that D-144 did. Scarring has also been noticed upon the subject and vomit will now have to be cleaned up.
I don't think it would be wise to put anymore people through this thing. Quite honestly, something like this is probably more harmful than helpful. Termination tests shall be starting tomorrow. - Dr. ███
Actions: Subject attempted to punch the mirror, but the mirror somehow knew what was about to happen and turned him into a python.
I have no idea how the mirror knew what was coming. However, we cannot stop here. - Dr. ███
Subject: D-156 equipped with one Beretta.
Actions: Upon firing at 1039, the bullets changed to small grey beads.
Subject: D-156 equipped with one baseball bat.
Actions: Before the bat could hit the mirror, it was turned into a foam bat.
I think we can form a conclusion that 1039 knows when someone is trying to destroy it and will act in self-preservation. How it's able to do this is beyond me. - Dr. ███
