SCP-3000 Contest Entry: Self Insert

Author's note: The full article will be formatted differently and considerably longer. This is a proof of concept meant to provide a snapshot of the overall idea. Iterations 1-3 may change; 4-6 will not, and the last two especially are the crux of the object, but you'll have to read everything to understand what's going on!

Item #: SCP-3000

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3000 is to be kept in a locked container at all times. The enclosure must be cleaned biweekly. Personnel are to enter SCP-3000's container in groups of no less than 3, and the door locked behind them. At all times, two personnel must maintain direct eye contact with SCP-3000 until all personnel have vacated and relocked the container. Personnel are to alert one another before blinking.

Any change in sounds originating from SCP-3000's containment chamber should be reported to the HCML supervisor on duty.

Description: SCP-3000 is a sculpture constructed from concrete and rebar, with traces of Krylon brand spray paint. Its origin is unknown.

SCP-3000 is animate, but cannot move while in direct line of sight of a human being. When a human breaks eye contact with SCP-3000, the object will move at high speed and attack the individual, typically by snapping the neck at the base of the skull. Strangulation has also been employed.

When SCP-3000 is not under observation, personnel have reported sounds of scraping stone within its chamber. A reddish substance, a combination of human feces and blood, has also been observed on the floor of SCP-3000's chamber. Though SCP-3000 is believed to be the original of this material, the actual source or SCP-3000's means of producing it are currently unknown.

Addendum: Interview 3000-01

Interviewed: SCP-3000

Interviewer: Dr. Falzon

Foreword: A change in the sounds coming from SCP-3000's chamber was reported on 04/09/94 to Dr. Falzon, HCML supervisor on duty. Investigation led to SCP-3000 requesting an interview. A screened porthole was installed in the chamber door to facilitate communication.

<Begin Log, 09:50>

Falzon: How are you finding your accommodations, SCP-3000?

SCP-3000: Not bad, not bad. I appreciate you guys cleaning up after me. Honestly, I don't know where that stuff comes from.

Falzon: It's the least we can do. Is there anything I can get you?

SCP-3000: Well, uh. [laughs] Maybe train your D-Class a little better? I mean, not too good, I don't want to kill them all. But they've been screwing up pretty badly lately, and I like a little challenge.

Falzon: I see. I suppose I shouldn't have expected anything else.

SCP-3000: Hey, don't judge. Being an unstoppable, well, mostly unstoppable, killing machine is fun!

Falzon: All right. Is there anything else I can do for you?

SCP-3000: No, I think I'm good. Thanks for the screen, though, nice to get some fresh air in here for once.

Closing Statement: Request to leave porthole open when SCP-3000 not under observation denied. Investigation of the origins of both the materials found in SCP-3000's chamber and its ability to vocalize are [LINK HERE]ongoing…[/LINK]

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All entrances to SCP-XXXX are to remain secured outside testing. Currently, testing is approved for Entryway 4. Only D-Class personnel are permitted to enter SCP-XXXX-1, and must be furnished with food, water and a tether. Light surveillance is necessary to prevent unwanted intrusion into SCP-XXXX-1.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an abandoned factory located at 145 Wilson Street, Kentland, Indiana, United States.3 SCP-XXXX-1 is an extradimensional space accessible by all 12 entryways of SCP-XXXX. Though it is currently not understood how entryways relate to one another inside SCP-XXXX-1, each opens at a fixed location4, and it is believed all exist within the same space. SCP-XXXX-1 is not visible through any of SCP-XXXX's windows or doors before entry is made.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a seemingly infinite painted desert plain. Features including cacti, animal skulls5, rocks and tumbleweeds are occasionally present. Thunderstorms, typically severe, have been witnessed in SCP-XXXX-1, and testing has shown that all entryways experience the same atmospheric phenomena concurrently. Night has yet to be witnessed in SCP-XXXX-1, and temperatures remain relatively stable around 36°C, with major variances occurring after a storm has passed. For a list of further phenomena related to SCP-XXXX-1, see Addendum XXXX-A.

Addendum XXXX-A: Notable Excerpts from SCP-XXXX-1 Exploration Logs

Test Number: 1
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 1 (Front door)
Duration: 12 minutes
Notes: Baseline test to determine properties of SCP-XXXX-1. Test subject notes entryway is not visible from within SCP-XXXX-1, save for the tether emerging from it. Two Carnegeia gigantea, approximately 10 m tall, are observed 3 m behind the entrance point. Subject notes hole consistent with bird nest in one cactus, but no birds or nesting materials are seen.

Test Number: 4
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 2 (East side personnel access)
Duration: 35 minutes
Notes: Human footprints observed in sand. Subject follows prints back to their source for 20 minutes, ending at a dry creek bed. Prints do not extend across.

Test Number: 5
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 12 (Skylight)
Duration: 3 minutes
Notes: Attempt to determine relationship between entryways. Entrance point is horizontal external to SCP-XXXX and vertical within SCP-XXXX-1, making both ingress and egress difficult. Test aborted after tether becomes lodged in entryway.

Test Number: 7
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 2, 3 (East side garage door)
Duration: 1 hour, 26 minutes
Notes: Attempt to determine relationship between entryways. Subjects entering Entryway 2 and Entryway 3 are unable to make visual or audio contact with one another. Subject who entered Entryway 3 finds a book6 nearby a water bottle left during Test 5. Test is halted five minutes later and subjects recalled. Pages of book have been torn out seemingly at random; object otherwise displays wear consistent with being in an arid climate for an extended period of time. On the inside of the front cover is written:

To D.
Love allways

On the inside of the back cover is written:

Saint Ade protect us

The rest of the writing is smeared. Object is housed in Non-Anomalous Storage Site 45.

Test Number: 8
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 4 (Eastmost rear window)
Duration: 1 hour, 13 minutes
Notes: First observation of features on the horizon. Subject instructed to travel toward apparent mountain range, but reports inability to make progress. Notes considerable numbers of bovine skulls while retracing steps to entryway, not observed during outset. Instructed to collect sample. Analysis of sample reveals non-anomalous Bison bison cranium, weathered consistent with exposure to arid climate for an extended period of time. Housed in Non-Anomalous Storage Site 45.

Test Number: 10
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 4
Duration: 15 minutes
Notes: See Addendum XXXX-03.

Test Number: 15
Date: ██/██/████
Entryway: 4
Duration: 3 days, 9 hours, 21 minutes
Notes: Attempt to reach mountains in distance. Testing team is provided extra water rations and hot-weather gear. On second day, storm is encountered, hampering progress. Team instructed to make camp. On third day, team reports shift in surroundings, and is instructed to return via tether. Team halts retrieval upon sighting a small cabin.7 Exploration reveals advanced state of decay consistent with abandonment in a desert climate. Items retrieved include three empty tin cans8, a plastic prescription pill container without label9, an empty oil lantern and a leather-bound journal10. Team recalled fully; human footprints noted along path of tether, not observed during outset. Items are housed in Non-Anomalous Storage Site 45.
