Item #: SCP-5251

Containment Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Do not interact with SCP-5251 without approval from me. I ████████ ██ █ ██████ █████████. SCP-5251 is in or near by the featureless room, which was previously a storage closet in Site-33. the room is to be kept (closed/locked) to all entry. It is (necessary/important) to ████ ███████ ██ ██████ ████████████ ██ SCP-5251 ███ ███ ████ ████████████ ███ ██ ██ █████████.

Description: SCP-5251 is a front-faced(?) washing machine. In all respects including functionality it is identical to a typical washing machine, however once powered, it begins to remove information from the surrounding area/room. Nearby objects become clean(?) and unidentifiable, and objects with known properties — for example, a fountain pen of known monetary value — become unknown. ███ ██████ ███████ ██ ████████ ██ █████████ ████ washing machine functions is yet (unclear/unknown).

SCP-5251 was discovered in the apartment of a Croq Embuch in Kiev, Ukraine, U.S.S.R. in 1991. While it is not known how SCP-5251 came into the possession of Dr. Embuch, he had seemingly been aware of its anomalous properties, as █████████████ were found in the (bathtub/washtub) of the bathroom(?) with ████ ██████████ ██ ██████████ ██ ████████ ███ █████ ████ he was killed(?).

As ████ ████ ██ ██ ███ █████ █████ ████ ██████ ██, ███ ██ ███ ████ ██████ as PoI-5251.


Experiment Log 01

Date: 15.09.1993
Experimenters: Dr. K Limonova, Dr. R Vershinin

Procedure: The setup found in Dr. Embuch's bathroom was recreated. Several objects were placed nearby, along with (clothes/laundry/objects) inside the machine, with a range of known and unknown properties. For example, one such item was a ███ ██████ ████, but another was a ████ of unknown weight(?) in an opened(?) box. SCP-5251 was activated under multiple different functional(?) conditions.

Results: Objects with known properties were ████ and became unknown. Objects with unknown properties retained them. Objects where one experimenter knew a property but the other did not only lost that property from the perspective of the one who knew it. When that property was extrapolated, it was ████ ███ ████. The (clothes/laundry/objects) inside the machine were not (remembered/influenced?) except the fact that they were cleaned.

Dr. K Limonova 15.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E01M01

This is fantastic. I've never seen anything remotely like this — the applications are endless. What's more, I've never had such a clear direction for future tests. I've sent you my documents1 for the coming week but feel free to make changes as you wish.

Dr. R Vershinin 15.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E01M02

Honestly, I'm just in shock that we're not re-treading ground covered by the original creator2. It's a little odd that he never worked this out himself. It seems so obvious.

Documents3 received. I'll give this a look over when I have time.

Dr. K Limonova 15.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E01M05

One doesn't look at a gift horse's teeth.

Dr. S Petrov 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M03

Kseniya, what did you say the original creator4's name was? I'm having some trouble with your comment up above.

Dr. K Limonova 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M04

I never said his name, just that he was the original creator5. His name was Croq Embuch6.

Dr. S Petrov 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E01M12

Ah, perfect. Thank you. Happy now?

Dr. R Vershinin 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E01M13

Yes, very happy.

Dr. S Petrov 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M06

Perhaps he just never thought to investigate? He was clearly using it for washing his laundry7, as mundane as that is. Perhaps he just thought that was all it could do.

Dr. K Limonova 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M07

Like I said, don't question it. But if you feel the need to also wash your clothes8 in it, run it by me first.

Dr. R Vershinin 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M08

You might be right, but it still worries me. It's a small concern, yes, but something just doesn't add up. Why would he be hiding it if he thought it was just a washing machine9? And that doesn't explain why he also had a completely normal one. I don't know anybody who has two.

Also, please reply to comments by clicking the link below them. You're confusing the thread.

Dr. K Limonova 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M09

It's a solved problem. Stop overthinking.

Dr. S Petrov 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M10

Kseniya, I have been doing that already and have no intention of stopping. It's ten times faster than my one at home and does a way better job of making my clothes not stink. Ranek, there are no links on command line, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Dr. K Limonova 16.09.1993 (WED) #5251E01M11

It's clf reply HASH, where HASH is the ID of the message you're replying to. You can add a message with -m if you want otherwise it just drops you into your editor, where you can see what you're replying to as a comment beneath the typing area.

For what it's worth, I don't actually care about you washing your laundry10 in it, but at least bother to take notes while you do it because then it would constitute a test.

Until then, I am just going to ignore you until you have something valid to contribute.

Experiment Log 02

Date: 17.09.1993
Experimenters: Dr. S Petrov

Procedure: I wanted to see what would happen when I increased the speed/power, so I overrode the limitation(?) on the power(?) control(?) to the testing room and stuffed as many objects as I could into the SCP. I scattered as many random objects as I could find everywhere in the room, at a much wider radius than before, in an attempt to establish a limit to its area of effect. I also put some bathing towels into it that I brought from home.

Results: All objects in the room within █.█m of the thing lost all properties. They were indistinguishable from each other! I picked up something and could not remember a single thing about it — not colour, not texture, nothing. I'm just glad I didn't bring my (wash cloth/pass cards). The objects inside the machine were treated exactly the same(?), though like before, they were still just cleaned.

Dr. K Limonova 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E02M01

This is consistent with Tuesday's results. It's interesting to note that the area of effect scales with the wattage11, though I'm a little wary of burning out the motor. I wonder if it's to do with the wattage12 or the speed of rotation?

Dr. S Petrov 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E02M03

Is it consistent? I can't find the last dataset to compare. Is it attached to the experiment log or did you leave it somewhere on the intranet?

Dr. K Limonova 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E02M04

It's attached.

Dr. S Petrov 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M06

I don't see it.

EDIT: I've found the file but it's empty.

Dr. R Vershinin 17.09.1993 (THU) #5251E02M02

Well, this certainly explains Mbuch(?)13's modifications to the (machine/anomaly)14 in the property. He must have been looking to increase the power15. Do we know how high he managed to get it?

Dr. K Limonova 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M05

He wasn't able to get it any higher than the limit16 — he was a mechanical engineer, not a wizard — but those modifications may actually have been what killed(?)17 him. It's hard to tell.

Dr. S Petrov 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M07

What do you mean, "hard to tell"? That doesn't make any sense. We all saw the autopsy report.

Dr. R Vershinin 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M08

Do you have a link to the autopsy report?

Dr. S Petrov 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M09

███████████████████████████████ (autopsy report)

Dr. K Limonova 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M10

Sure thing: ███████████████████████████████ (autopsy report)

Dr. S Petrov 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M11

Beat you to it!

Dr. R Vershinin 18.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E02M12


Experiment Log 03

Date: 18.09.1993
Experimenters: Dr. R Vershinin

Procedure: The object was partially (disassembled/disconnected) to see if any anomalous properties could be identified.

Results: Failure. I had difficulty opening it up, and even after I managed to do so, the feeling became worse as time went on. I found myself unable to remember multiple belongings that I should have been very familiar with. After a while I became frustrated and turned it back on.

Dr. R Vershinin 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M01

I'll be honest, I'm not sure why I ran this test. It seemed so clear to me on Friday, and then I come back on Monday to check the results and it's gone. Did I mention my intentions to either of you last week?

Dr. S Petrov 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M02

Chalk it up to age. Happens to the best of us.

Dr. K Limonova 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M03

I sent you both my plan of possible experiments last week. Perhaps you were running one of those?

Dr. R Vershinin 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E02M04

I never received such a list. Saveli18?

Dr. S Petrov 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M05

No, nor me. I do recall that you mentioned it, Kseniya.

Dr. K Limonova 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M06

I have just checked — you acknowledged in writing receipt of the documents19. "Documents20 received. I'll give this a look over when I have time."

Dr. R Vershinin 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M07

I must have said that in error, then, because I do not have any correspondence from you relating to this project at all.

Dr. K Limonova 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M08

I apologise — it appears that I actually sent you an empty file.

Dr. R Vershinin 21.09.1993 (MON) #5251E03M09

That can't be true either, because I do not have anything from you at all, empty files included.

S McFenton 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M10

Hi all, Foundation IT responding to ticket #1352. I can confirm an email was sent from limonovakseniya to two21 recipients and zero CCs, who both22 received it, although only one23 actually opened the message. Any further queries, please let me know —Sam

Dr. R Vershinin 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M11

Thanks, Sam. Would you mind checking the same from my end? Address is vershininranek

S McFenton 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M12

Of course — looks like you received the message but never opened it. Check your spam?

Dr. R Vershinin 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M14

I've re-checked my inbox. I'm not sure what exactly you mean by spam?

S McFenton 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M15

Sorry, it's a bit of an in-joke. Okay, I've checked again, and can confirm for sure that the message sent two(?) times(?)24. Hope that clears things up.

Dr. R Vershinin 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M16

It does. Thank you very much!

Dr. S Petrov 22.09.1993 (TUE) #5251E03M13

Could you check mine as well? My address is petrovsaveli25.

Dr. S Petrov 23.09.1993 (WED) #5251E03M17


Experiment Log 04

Date: 24.09.1993
Experimenter: Dr. S Petrov

Procedure: I have unplugged the damned thing and wheeled its trolley down to a storage closet on the other side of the Site, into which I have interred it until somebody fucking replies to anything I say.

Results: TBA

Dr. K Limonova 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M01

Ha, ha, very funny, Saveli26. Where is it?

Dr. R Vershinin 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M02

Looks like someone's in a bad mood…

Dr. K Limonova 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M03

Saveli27, I swear to fuck, you either tell me where it is, or I will eat your fucking head.

Dr. R Vershinin 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M04

Kseniya, slight problem — I don't actually see any correspondence from Saveli28 in the discussion.

Dr. S Petrov 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M05

Doesn't see Saveli. Fuck off, Ranek29.

Dr. K Limonova 24.09.1993 (THU) #5251E04M06

Yes, that would be a slight problem.

S McFenton 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M07

Hi all, Foundation IT responding to ticket #1356. Analysis confirms that no person named Saveli Petrov30 has ever been assigned to this project. I do not see any messages from a Saveli Petrov31 upthread. —Sam

Dr. R Vershinin 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M08

Thanks Sam. One question: are you sure?

S McFenton 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M09

The analysis is conclusive. But… I could swear I remember a (Saveli/Petrov)32 from the last time I checked this project. I'm looking right now, though, and there's nothing.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M10

Okay. If the three of us are in consensus, then we either have a memory injection scenario, or a reality erasure scenario. You are both certain that Saveli Petrov33 exists or existed, yes?

S McFenton 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M11

It does seem that way.

Dr. R Vershinin 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M12

Yes, absolutely confident.

Dr. S Petrov 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M18

Yeah, you can be pretty fucking sure34.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M13

Good. SCP-… uh, the object is obviously fucking with things. I'm going to defer this upwards. In the meantime, avoid interacting with it as much as possible.

Dr. R Vershinin 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M22

That shouldn't be too difficult, given that we don't know where it is.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M14

Sam, I want you to scour Site-33's security feed and find (Saveli/Petrov)35. We know he moved SCP, uh, whatever number it is, last night, so focus on that. As far as I know there's nothing nocturnal here, so be wary of anything that moves. If you see something that you don't want to pay attention to, focus on it. That might not be possible. See if the guys in Counterconceptual have anything that'll help.

S McFenton 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M19

Sure thing. I'll take notes on anything I see.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M20

No! Don't write anything down. We can't trust any recorded information.

EDIT: Actually, no, do write things down. Even if we're not sure whether the notes or the memories are correct, it will be useful to have a reference for comparison.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M15

Ranek, I need you to look through prior correspondence and see what holes you can find. See if you can find anything that conclusively proves (Saveli/Petrov)36 did or did not exist.

Dr. R Vershinin 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M21

On it.

Dr. K Limonova 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M16

(Saveli/Petrov)37, if you are reading this, then you need to find some way to communicate with us. The project thread is not working. Leave notes. Carve shit into the walls of my office. Find me and scream in my face. Injure me. Anything to prove that you exist. Keep going until you are acknowledged.

We will reconvene in the morning with our results. I'm going to treat this internally as an experiment.

Dr. S Petrov 25.09.1993 (FRI) #5251E04M17

Are you serious? Injure you? I'll do something — I'll think of something — but not that38.

Experiment Log 05

Date: 25.09.1993
Experimenter: Dr. K Limonova, Dr. R Vershinin, S McFenton

Procedure: Dr. Saveli Petrov has gone missing, so we set out to find him. Dr. Limonova contacted Foundation superiors to call in more qualified assistance. Dr. Vershinin thoroughly scoured the research log forum, to find any flaws that could be indicative of reality erasure. Ms. McFenton looked through the security feeds from the night that Dr. Petrov disappeared, under the influence of drugs acquired from the Counterconceptual Division, to see if she could see him.

Results: TBA

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M01

I recall that yesterday I was working with Ranek Vershinin and Sam McFenton. I am completely confident in this recollection. I have not reread prior messages and I have no intent to: I am certain that my memory is correct.

What did we find out last night?

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M02

Ranek? Sam?

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M03

Are you fucking kidding me? Has it happened to me now?

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M04

Kseniya, I am so sorry, it is Saturday and I did not turn on my alarm clock.

I've gone over our messages from yesterday. I can't find any 'holes', as you put it. Your missing person just doesn't exist — the SCP must have planted that memory inside us. It's just been me, you, and Sam.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M05

You don't remember that Sam confirmed I sent both of you my proposed documents39?

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M08

I have spent all night reading and re-reading this conversation. I'm pretty damn sure.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M11

Then one of us is compromised.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M12

You remember his face, right? You remember how he had that birthmark40 down his left cheek41?

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M06

I've been looking over the Site security feeds at your request, Dr. Limonova. I spoke to Counterconceptual like you asked and, you were right, they did give me something to help — a man42 ██████ ██████ the object at43 19:04 last night44.

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M07

Sam, there seems to be data loss in that message, please check your GPG config and try again.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M09

Apologies — to rephrase, █████████ ██████████ ████████.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M10

I saw him move something upspoken to the break(?) room45.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M14

I am so sorry. How about this: there were no significant events that night before 19:02 and after 19:10.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M16

Oh, fuck me.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M13

Also, Ranek, just to confirm — I notice that you said "your missing person" instead of his name. Could you confirm his name for me, please?

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M17

…no. I can't.

I can honestly say I have no idea who you are talking about.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M18

Of course you couldn't46.

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M86

Saveli47, are you still there? Check the date on this post. It's been a while.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M24

Kseniya48? What are you doing49? How can you see me50? How can you see my messages51?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M87

Mnestics, Class-W. A drug produced by the Antimemetics Division. They stop you forgetting things, and help you remember things you've forgotten. Like you. It's the perfected form of the same drug that's going to kill Sam in a few hours. That's my fault. I've come to terms with it.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M25

Yeah, that's the stuff. It's been so long ████ ███ █████. ███ ████… to(?) know how52 lonely it is.

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M88

No, it's not. And the same to you. It's only been twenty years for me, but I don't think either of us know how long it's been for you. I can't imagine what that feels like.

I need you to do something, and you need to do it as soon as you can. The drug that Sam ingested is growing more potent by the second. It will reach its critical point far before she metabolises it. She will be able to perceive you by 16:53, though I don't know exactly when. She'll be dead less than ten minutes later. It is imperative that she passes on a message to me. Do you understand?

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M26

Yes53, ██ ██████ — █ ████ ███'█ ██████████ ███ ██ ███ ████████ ██ █████████████ ██ ███. I'm… dead? I think? And you're in the future54?

Is this55 █████████ ██ ██ ████ SCP-525156?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M89

Do NOT discuss it, don't talk about it, don't even theorise; you'll just make it worse59. I won't confirm anything to you until I know it's safe. Your situation is precarious.

No, you're not dead. I think it's better if you don't know the details, for now.

I know you have questions. They have to wait. You need to tell me, via Sam, to shut down the project and stop research; to stop discussing it; to lock the file. Otherwise it'll60 get you to stop her(?)61. I can see the messages between you and her already so I know you do an excellent job. I believe in you.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M27

Well62 what's in it for me63?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M90

You get to save us. Isn't that enough?

We'll find a way to save you. I promise.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M19

Okay, thank you.

His name is Saveli Petrov64.

Ranek, Sam, please repeat the name back to me.

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M20

Acknowledged but unable to comply. I do not see a name — the line simply ends after "His name is".

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M21

It might be the drugs that Counterconceptual gave me but I do see something. There's no name, but I do see the space that was reserved for it. There's something there, for sure, just I can't see it. Six and six.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M22

Six and six are the lengths of his given name and surname.

It's a little scary that I remember his name, but I don't have a clue what he looked like.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M23

That makes sense.

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M28

Ah — I can reproduce the issue now. I am no longer able to read that name, nor remember it.

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M29

That's interesting. Do you think that it was re-reading the written name that infected you? It's possible that it was your adamance against reading the previous conversation that protected you for so long. Imagine that… information that's hazardous. I wonder if there's a name for that.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M30

Sam? Can you read this65?

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M39

Saveli66?? Yes, yes I can! Are you okay? What happened?

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M40

Sam, I don't have much time. You (have/need) to tell Kseniya to stop research and to lock the file. Please do this for me67.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M41

That can wait! Tell us where you are, what happened!

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M45

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M48

Fantastic! (Great job/Thank you)69.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M49

I did what you asked. Now tell me how we can get you back.

Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M52

Kseniya or Ranek can drive down and find you!

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M31

The higher-ups finally got back to me. I had to call them. Several times, actually. I kept getting mixed feedback on whether or not they received my initial email. Eventually they told me to just deal with whatever this is on my own.

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M32

That's a bit shit of them. How high did you go?

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M33

Russian Command, then European. I didn't see much point in going higher.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M34

Oh shit, there's a message from Dr. Petrov72 upthread. He's asking about me specifically. Does anyone else see it?

Dr. R Vershinin 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M35

I don't see it.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M36

It must be the pill, I guess. What should I do?

Dr. K Limonova 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M37

Be on guard, Sam. There's a fair chance you're speaking to the anomaly. Respond, but be wary.

S McFenton 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M38


Dr. S Petrov 26.09.1993 (SAT) #5251E05M43

Oh, come on.73.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M69

Are you still there74?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M91

Of course I am. I'm in the future; I'm always 'still there'. You did good. Saved our lives. Me and Ranek, that is. It was too late for Sam. And for you.

Maybe, back then, I would've locked the file anyway. But I had to be sure. I'm sorry that I had to use you for that. Besides — Sam, and her faith in you, was the only thing between me and believing that you didn't exist. Without your help we probably wouldn't be having this conversation.

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M92

And I'll never be able to. Not if you want me to still be able to talk to you. I think just one person knowing how it works is safe.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M71

███████. ████'█ ████. Will I be seen75?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M93

Well, I can talk to you now, right? Makes sense to me that I should be able to see you. Do you have a physical form?

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M72

I do76.

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M94

Then… I think all you need to do is wait until my time. I'm off-site right now, but I can be there in the morning. Mnestics in 2013 are absolutely safe, for sure — I'll take another then. We should be able to rendezvous somewhere.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M73

Sounds good. How about your office77?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M95

Ha! Sure. My old office.

Alright, I'll see you there tomorrow.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M74

What happened to Ranek, is he okay78?

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M96

Ranek? He's fine. He doesn't work for Foundation anymore, so he was wiped. He's forgotten you existed, but SCP-5251 convinced him you didn't exist in the first place. Maybe it's better this way.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M75

I loved him79.

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M97

I know. We all knew.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M76

He never felt the same?80

Dr. K Limonova 04.11.2013 (MON) #5251E05M98

I don't know. He never would have admitted it, even to himself.

Try and hold that thought for 2013. It'll keep you going.

Dr. S Petrov 27.09.1993 (SUN) #5251E05M77

I'll try81.
