Item #: SCP-XXX
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: All files at Site-██ are to be labeled by high-ranking officers’ signatures, a bar-code, and a unique watermark. All file-cabinets, drawers, and other storage areas are to be locked, and have their content closely monitored and regulated. All new files made electronically are to be added to the list of "Safe" computer files. Should SCP-XXX manifest itself, it should be turned in to high-ranking management. All workers at Site-██ are to be instructed on the nature of SCP-XXX and be promised a reward for turning it in.
Should SCP-XXX be turned in, it is to be scanned, burned, and a replacement printed and put in a thermite-lined file-cabinet, set to detonate should forced entry occur. All copies of SCP-XXX are to be saved, regardless of content.
Any and all who have read SCP-XXX are to be psychologically screened for rebellion, and, if necessary, terminated.
Description: SCP-XXX takes many forms, but primarily is a manila envelope, with "PROJECT 14" typed in red ink somewhere on it. It appears randomly in Site-██, though investigation is being put forth to see if it can be transferred to other locations. The form it takes varies wildly, but tends to be the one that would be the most innocuous for the given area. Forms taken by SCP-XXX so far include:
A standard paper file,
a folder for a system unique to one wing of Site-██,
a post-it note,
a computer file,
a message written on a napkin,
and, in one instance, [DATA EXPUNGED]. It is currently unknown how it generated organic tissue.
The information contained in SCP-XXX varies as well, but follows a basic structure. SCP-XXX contains a conspiracy theory that would cause the most psychological trauma to the viewer. Some examples are:
A plan by which an underdeveloped government could use precision explosives and political rallies to more easily implement a police state,
a transcript of a Foundation prisoner starving to death in one of the Site-██ storage closets,
a plan for taking a large office building hostage with only a team of three people,
techniques for information gathering via torture,
a device which could be used to forcefully [REDACTED] a random person,
and, most disturbingly, a plan for the SCP Foundation to use various SCP's to [DATA EXPUNGED].
SCP-XXX seems to display a preference for the person who finds it. An organized and rational person is less likely to come across SCP-XXX than someone who is reckless and impulsive. Whether this is caused or merely coincidence is being studied. After finding and reading the document, the viewer, hereafter referred to as SCP-XXX-1, begins to display symptoms of paranoia and distrust for authority. SCP-XXX-1’s mental condition rapidly deteriorates, refusing to accept orders, believe official files, and not adhering to restricted/open access areas. After approximately two weeks, SCP-XXX-1 begins to incite rebellion in all around them. Within days, mass riots and chaos consume the area of SCP-XXX. If the original governing system wins out, then SCP-XXX retreats and resurfaces in a matter of months. Should the rioters and SCP-XXX-1 take over, SCP-XXX-1 takes position as a leader and rapidly establishes new rules. Invariably, within weeks, one of their followers stages a coup and violently [DATA EXPUNGED] to ensure that they are seen as the new leader. This can continue indefinitely without intervention.
