The Leak — SCP Series 3 and 4

SCP-2087

ophite

Whatever is destroying the viability of nearby timelines spreads via contact between nonviable and viable timelines. However, once fully nonviable, the contagion no longer works. This means that there will always be at least one viable timeline.

SCP-2091

Decibelles

Prior to the Foundation starting containment containment on SCCP-2930, David Lennox used to live in Cross City City and attend church as well as go to council council meetings.

SCP-2118

ahbonjour

2118 had a brother who died very young. After he died her household went into such grief that nothing could be done, her mother wouldn't get out of bed, her father spent all his time alone in his office. Her mother said during one of her crying jags "I just wish I could hear his voice again". Someone or something heard her and decided to grant it, by taking away her daughter's voice and replacing it with every dead child's—including her brother's. The first time she spoke in it, her mom flipped out and ran off for a bit. Eventually, of course, she came back, but she never looked at 2118 again. She told the schools 2118 was Deaf and needed to learn ASL. They fought a lot. When the Foundation faked her death and took her away, her mom was sad, of course, but also a little bit relieved. The brother is addressed a little bit in Six Letters Addressed to the SCP Foundation (and One Letter Home).

SCP-2135

ObserverSeptember

SCP-2135-B has existed in some form or another for quite some time. It could be a parallel universe, where physical laws are somewhat different (hence the black-and-white look), or it could be a "shadow world" similar to Stephen King's The Langoliers. In either case, it mirrored baseline reality to a rather large degree, with some variations along the way.

The closure of the 91st Street Station changed all of that, completely and utterly. The Subway System is an inexorable connecting point between baseline and SCP-2135-B. Something about 91st Street Station was extremely important to 2135-B, on par with a physical law. The elimination of that subway stop caused a link in the "chain" connecting the two realities to break - and the results were dramatic.

SCP-2135-C have not reacted kindly to this. Somehow, they manage to keep a train going between our world and baseline, but anything that happened after the subway station closed (IE after 1959) makes no sense to them, and they do not react kindly to it. They are sentient, to one degree or another - maybe individually, maybe collectively.

That's all I'm 100% certain off. Some have speculated that they're planning an invasion, but "RESET" could mean multiple things. Like I said, write a tale about it. ;)

SCP-2146

MegalomaniacInchworm

Despite some speculation on the discussion page, SCP-2146 is not, in fact, an emissary from a hostile alien race of space whales. Some mammals other than humans are born with the genetic and neurological makeup necessary for reality bending. 2146 is the semi-undead remains of a terrestrial bowhead whale, which in life possessed godlike powers, a human-equivalent intelligence, and a fractured sanity marked with megalomania and paranoid alien conspiracy fantasies.

SCP-2150

MrRonin

SCP-2150: The anomaly stems from D-8327M, who is the original person carrying the name. The addenda display the process of how the D-Class uses its ability to eventually escape the site, and the Foundation itself. There is no way for the Foundation to know this for sure, because attempting to search anything related to the anomaly is risk of exposure.

The D-Class used its memetic anomaly to cause his first breach throughout the site. All he had to do is speak his real name to several guards/researchers approaching him. Amnestics failed on him because the amnestics are designed to work on infected personnel; he's never been infected. He ran the risk of being caught as the anomaly, so he made his escape before personnel can piece it together. The name on the roster is the remnants of a time where his name wasn't anomalous. This indicates that he has been a test subject for an extended period of time. It also explains why his records cannot be found. Personnel have to assume that his "real name" is nowhere to be found. If they were attempt to discover the truth, they also risk exposure.

The same D-Class later became a Site Director. In the 1st and 2nd addenda, the Director's name is redacted, despite it being a highly classified document. The 1st addendum might as well be song lyrics, because its sole purpose is to spur the second breach. In the original documentation, the full name was written on the letter. Anyone reading it would automatically be exposed to the anomaly. Due to the nature of the anomaly, 1 instance is all it would take.

Of course, the Site Director would be suspected again, and so he was detained with other instances. The two MTFs being infected were icing on the cake.

Through planning and timing, the Site Director managed to become an O5 member. Sooner or later, he would run the risk of being discovered by the O5 Council. If his real name is discovered, the O5 is paralyzed, spelling trouble for the world as we know it. He plans his 3rd and final escape, this time quietly. He admits that he is the origin of the anomaly and requests to be resigned from the Council. The O5 can only take his word, and unanimously agree that he is to be resigned.

The original Mark ████████ took the original document with him, along with the only link he has related to his position as an O5 member, Site Director, and D-Class.

The O5 immediately suspects that the (now prior) O5 member is the cause of the anomaly. However, they have no way to know for sure where he came from, or how he got his position. The only clue they have is that he is related to the D-Class from earlier addenda. The O5 are forever stuck with speculation, and cannot search into the breaches further without risk of exposure. All they know for sure is that they were face to face, inches away from a Keter Class entity.

SCP-2159

MrWrong

In an earlier version, "Iteration 0" is technically Iteration 159.

SCP-2173

Agent MacLeod

SCP-2173 has a lot going on, and it may seem incoherent, but all will become clear in time. Essentially, 2173 has three separate, unconnected stories: The formerly hidden text about Pattern Screamers, which will be expanded on in two other SCPs; the story in the supplement which I will update later; and the SCP's titular Mexican Standoff. The -1s are NOT Screamers: they're just weird aliens. They left because the Pattern Screamers tried to kill them the same way the Screamers attacked the Foundation, and the -1s value their soldiers enough to withdraw. Hopefully, this improves the way one understands the article.

SCP-2177

Petrograd

Actual historical background (kinda long):

-At the end of WWII, most of the Axis powers and the territories they conquered operated under Allied occupation for several years. Japan was under US occupation until 1952, under the direction of General Douglas MacArthur.

-During WWII, Japanese military units engaged in biological and chemical warfare trials involving atrocities against both civilians and prisoners of war. The Japanese physicians and leaders involved were terrified of being extradited to the Soviet Union, where they were wanted for war crimes and the deaths of Russian prisoners. As part of gearing up for the Cold War, MacArthur, with President Truman's approval, granted them immunity and covered up evidence in exchange for providing their weapons research to the United States alone.

- Fun links: Unit 731's Immunity, Operation Paperclip on the German side.

In-universe: In my original intention, the Society for Advanced Human Research are a group of scientists from elsewhere who have a limitless supply of human subjects and do not hold the same limits as us on what makes research ethical, or really even necessary. They just like doing science. When America exchanged war crimes immunity for Japanese bio/chemical weapons research, the Society somehow got wind and took it as a sign that we were in the market for that kind of thing. SCP-2177 is just their delivery mechanism.

Also, just for fun: The Foundation experimented with Site 11's former library to research the infection and identify possible titles, but stopped upon realizing that it could basically hydra endlessly and produce increasingly useless and horrific research. To "fill" those new "subscriptions", all of that research actually occurred.

SCP-2195

Gene R

Far away, in another country in a different world, there is a freight train standing on an abandoned railway for years and years. 19 unmarked shipping containers are standing on its platforms. They made it out of the mutiny-wracked city, but never reached their destination - protesters were blocking the railway further away. So they had to be dropped there and plan B was engaged.

In 1992 a new person had appeared in our world. This person found the biggest country (accidentally, also a country having a lot of loopholes in its laws) where his cargo could roll about on the longest route possible without crossing any borders and having trouble with customs searches. He made some money for this enterprise through questionable means and made it function without any need for further interference. These containers did not initially contain what we call SCP-2195, only a dummy weight equal to that of SCP-2195. In time, a constantly moving container with its only known parameter being its weight, accumulates enough indetermination, and so the cargo could be swapped with a little push. The only thing remaining was to open the seals and commit the change - a bit of info about some smuggling taking place was just enough.

From there on, the person was no longer interested in the cargo's fate. He evacuated it from where it was standing, so his job was done. Maybe the Foundation taking over and keeping the cargo behind veils and veils of secrecy was really the best outcome possible. Anyway, the person never returned home. First, he could not - this was a one-way trip from the start. Second, he didn't really want to. He got quite comfortable here, but was probably facing trial should he return. We know nothing about his fate - he may be spending the rest of his years in peace and quiet, or carry on his beloved vocation, selling shady biotech knowledge to the highest bidder.

As for his concerns, he was right, even though he had no way of knowing. The war was lost, the mutineers backed by colonial administration proxies eventually overthrew the government. Most genetic engineers disappeared without a trace, but the ones responsible for this project's implementation faced court. They only got a life sentence with the right to euthanasia instead of a qualified execution due to lack of any direct evidence, but this did not stop the revolutionists. There was no stopping the Revolution - especially since day 212, year 187 of the 4th Republic, when every newborn baby started chanting its cries…

SCP-2231

Patrick Whelan

SCP-2231 is fairly straight forward, not much to add to this one, although I will clarify that the termination of 2231-4 was accidental, the containment of 2231-4 had a broad support from the research staff, and SCP-2231-1,-2,-3 were all very confused once -4 was placed into containment (they didn't mind being contained as long as -4 was free since they thought of their experience as -4 as the "real" experience and -1,-2,-3 were simply afterthoughts)

SCP-2237

Agent MacLeod

SCP-2237 is dumb and is my own way of justifying contradictory things in the Foundationverse without cognitive dissonance. In case you didn't already know, the thing was meant to be a 001 proposal. Quite frankly, it and 2173 are going to be chips on my shoulder until I can figure out how to make them mainstream successes.

SCP-2246

Decibelles

Phoenix has written one book that's a minor hit in Brasil's underground scene (being under their preferred name). Prior to becoming an anomaly, of course.

SCP-2273

Agent MacLeod

SCP-2273 can best be explained by an excerpt pulled from an earlier draft, one that has never seen the main wiki:

Based on information provided by SCP-XXXX-A, it is currently believed that, despite the discovery of the "engineers" during the early part of the First World War, SCP-XXXX's original timeline progressed in much the same way as Baseline. The Russian Revolution did not initiate until April 1917, as opposed to the February Revolution of the same year in Baseline. However, the final Armistice that ended the war is still believed to have occurred in November 1918. The Treaty of Versailles is believed to have been nearly identical to Baseline, resulting in heavy post-war debt for Germany, leading to similar sociopolitical circumstances.

The use of technology designed by the "engineers" led to technological revolutions on a scale similar to that of the Industrial Revolution of the previous century. The stock market boom and economic prosperity of this version of the 1920s United States lasted until 1930. However, with the increase in automation of several processes that formerly required human labor, the labor market and the stock market crashed and an economic depression similar in severity to the Great Depression followed.

Subsequent events appear to follow a similar path to Baseline thereafter until late in the Second World War, wherein it is believed Project Aphrodite, a United States military project to convert bomber aircraft laden with excess explosives into remote-controlled missiles, succeeded or had a significantly lower death rate for friendly pilots. Of note is the fact that Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., John F. Kennedy's older brother, was killed in action as a pilot for Project Aphrodite in Baseline. No other notable differences between Baseline and SCP-XXXX's world of origin over the course of World War II is believed to have occurred.

It is believed that the political career John Kennedy took up after the Second World War in Baseline was instead taken up by Joseph Kennedy, leading to his election as President of the United States in 1960. It is not known precisely the events that lead to the deployment of the United States' and Soviet Union's nuclear arsenals, but it is believed that Joseph P. Kennedy's status as POTUS8 at the time was a significant contributing factor.

According to SCP-XXXX-A, the "engineers" were largely unaffected by the nuclear exchange because the majority of their cities were subterranean. Further, it is believed that they began acting as armament and equipment dealers to both sides of survivors following the nuclear exchange, leading to the creation of SCP-XXXX-2.

Information as to how SCP-XXXX-A was recovered in US territory or how SCP-XXXX-B was recovered from former Soviet territory, or other information on the nature of the war as SCP-XXXX-A last experienced it, has not been forthcoming.

Also of note: SCP-2273's weapons were originally described in the above-quoted draft. They were basically just BFG versions of regular weapons.

Now, as to how he got here? It's like this: The Soviets in his timeline developed a weapon that fucks with 4 spatial dimensions and warps 3 dimensional space. The reason they did this is the fact that armor like Alexei's is very resistant to conventional weapons, so it's actually cheaper to build cruise missiles that break normal spacetime than it is to build cruise missiles that explode with enough force to destroy an armored soldier. Occasionally, these missiles will teleport matter from their timeline to others. The US Army unit that captured Alexei was hit by one such missile, and Alexei is lucky that he wasn't turned inside out or otherwise mutilated and wound up in a stable version of reality instead.

SCP-2281

Roget

The Boyd/Gillespie/Roget family

Agent Lis Boyd: Sibling to Dr. Boyd, a Foundation field agent known for preferring solo missions, and isn't close to anyone in the family outside of her brother. The SCP objects she has aided in containing include:

She has also been in the following reports:

SCP-2289

WrongJohnSilver

SCP-2289-7 was a hitman for a drug cartel before becoming a death-row prisoner, then a D-class, then an SCP. Being in containment is the first time in a long time that anyone has cared about his health and well-being, and so he appreciates containment.

SCP-2289-7 can't stand using the full serial designations for SCP-2289-1 though 6, and so he has named them Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco, and The Red Bomber.

SCP-2298

Eekium

SCP-2298 was relocated to Site-21, but it wasn't relocated from its place of recovery. It was actually moved from Site-162 following a site-wide MC&D raid which occurred after a researcher attempted to sell SCP-2298 to one of their agents, thus giving them access to the facility (I've been thinking about writing a tale about this actually).

SCP-2305

ObserverSeptember

SCP-2305 will NEVER provide useful information on how to neutralize SCPs. It's an absolute, like not being able to kill 682. Admittedly this requires suspending disbelief a bit, but think of SCP-2305 as the "Secure, Contain, Protect, not Destroy, Destroy Destroy" mantra in SCP form.

Some people have mentioned Gamers Against Weed or AWCY, but I didn't have a specific GoI in mind when making it (and it predates GAW significantly). Word of God doesn't mean much re: its origins, since I wasn't quite sure what sort of group/entity is doing it - just someone fucking with the Foundation for the lulz. Alternate, Death of the Author interpretation would be that it's trying to help the Foundation in some way.

SCP-2322

Roget

The Boyd/Gillespie/Roget family

Shirley Gillespie: The retired Director of Site-77(or active Director, depending on the time period) she was a highly influential site Director due to the large volume of SCP objects under her jurisdiction. At some point well after her retirement, she was diagnosed with Alzheimers, as seen in I Hope That I Get Old Before I Die. Also anomalized in SCP-2322.

SCP-2337

daveyoufool

SCP-2337 is an unthinkably powerful elder god capable of wiping out entire galaxies. Rather, it was. Being able to do anything and everything it wanted became boring - the entity came to understand that the thrill was in the journey, rather than the reward. So, it gave up its own powers and took the form of an (almost) harmless corn crake, then attempted to adjust itself to life on earth. Needless to say, the transformation wasn't perfect, and his crazed speech patterns come from a brain of infinite capacity trying to dumb itself down. Naturally, it tries to avoid any discussion of its past form, since that might attract unwanted attention from his former enemies.

SCP-2337

daveyoufool

A while ago, I said that Dr. Spanko is actually some kind of omnipotent space deity that's in retirement. As much as I love that headcanon, I'm going to go ahead and retcon it, as that's what I used as the basis for SCP-2803.

So, what kind of "authority figure" is he to important keter-class entities?

Only insofar as Mickey Mouse is an authority figure to humans.

Fact is, Dr. Spanko is a character from a successful cartoon franchise in an external iteration of reality's pop culture canon. His speech mannerisms are Reality-DSA233701's equivalent of simple English, and in his perspective, we're all talking in overcomplicated gibberish.

He came to this reality in 1993, when Prometheus Labs was developing the dimensional gateway called "Project Bifrost" that would later be known to the Foundation as SCP-2591-Omega. After several failed attempts to find a stable parallel reality without a cyanide-based atmosphere or grass made of human flesh (don't ask), they came upon Reality-DSA233702, the set of the popular Reality-DSA233701 cartoon "Designated Shenanigans Area." During exploration, Dr. Spanko absentmindedly walked out the gateway to find more gummy worms, and went on a "YOU HAS STRANGLEFRUITS?" rampage that tore open the eardrums of [REDACTED] PL staff. When that got him nowhere, he flew around the world in search of gummy worms - a long adventure that came to an end in an empty field somewhere in Sussex.

Dr. Spanko's not a king or a god (though some anomalies may mistakenly believe him to be), but any dimension-hopping reality bender who's hip to what kids like has seen at least the first season of Designated Shenanigans Area.

SCP-2350

A Random Day

SCP-2350 wasn't developed by the US Chemical Corps; they outsourced the project's development to an organization known only as Black Eagle.

SCP-2352

nykacolaquantum

SCP-2352-2's species is endangered in a sense, with their current numbers unknown but not going any higher than the double-digits. They have been around for several millennia, but only noticed Earth in the early 1900s. SCP-2352-2 is rather young by their standards, around Simon's age.

For 2352-1/Simon, the death by electrical fire bit is true. What the obituary didn't mention, and 2352-2 doesn't know about, is that it was a result of sabotage by the ex-girlfriend mentioned in the second log entry. She found out about the video he'd made about her, and got royally pissed as a result, although she didn't intend to actually kill him.

SCP-2372

MrWrong

It references the hun and po, and there's a Chinese saying that the soul comprises of the 3 hun and 7 po.

SCP-2376

AbsentmindedNihilist

Though its effects are anomalous, it evolved perfectly normally, and formed a symbiotic relationship with crows. Crows get defenseless, immobile food sources, and no humans will bug them while they're eating it. The pathogen gets to spread. It works by affecting neural mechanism similar to the ones affected in Cotard's delusion and Capgras syndrome. Infected specimens are incapable of recognizing other infectees as human, though the effect doesn't extend to themselves - each and every inhabitant of a world completely infected with SCP-2376 would believe himself to be the last human on earth. Oh, and the city where the mannequin strain popped up? Chicago. The Foundation figured it out when they saw news headlines about a sudden decrease in the homeless population, and seemingly unrelated articles about a new phenomenon where pranksters were leaving mannequins dressed in rags in the streets.

SCP-2430

MrWrong

The 30th of April (4/30) is the death date of Hitler.

SCP-2438

Petrograd

- SCP-2438/SCP-2438-1 is a hearth god, and it just wants living beings who worship it (it's not picky) to be safe and free from starvation.
- It tries to change beings to bring that about for them, but it can only work on them within its area of influence, and they can't leave with -1s until its relatively satisfied its done its job.
- Unfortunately, it really doesn't understand mitochondria. It either pre-dates them or just didn't anticipate them since its not from here (I assume deities aren't). This has unfortunate effects for beings with mitochondria, since mitochondria already do a lot of the things it can offer on a technical level.
- The rabbits are grateful. They'll end up anywhere a Foundation plane or boat will take them, but once they get there, they're attracted to hearths, stoves, furnaces, and fire.

About MTF Epsilon-7 ("Forget-Me-Nots")
- According to past SCPs, Epsilon 7's primary task is to monitor and prevent civilians from developing mnestics. All past this is my interpretation for this article.
- This means that they're primarily an undercover/intelligence MTF, and really not suited for dealing with the tasks presented here.
- The thing is, mnestics are tricky, because 1) They're top secret within the Foundation since they counter one of its primary tools for maintaining normalcy and employee sanity (In my interpretation, you'll never find an SCP with mnestics in the Containment Procedures.), and 2) if you're not on mnestics, it's really easy to forget all about them. So, to do their job, all Epsilon-7 have to be "read into" mnestics, and at least key members need to be on them (I also have it in my head that they end up investigating potential anti-memes out in the civilian world, on the level of the "Damn Feds" or the UIU, but I haven't written anything for it.).
- Thus, "only one mnestic-cleared MTF in the entire Foundation."
- When Trial 147 went weird, the O5s redeployed all UK-based Forget-Me-Nots to aid in the transport, partially due to their pharmacological knowledge, and partially just to have somebody on mnestics around.

About the documents
- In case it wasn't clear, you got clearance because Madeline Weaver was watching you read the document, looked you up, and had good indications you were in the know.
- The last document was an abandoned shared draft written by LAPINATE personnel trying to convince the O5s to approve their project. (They later rewrote it, and succeeded.)
- Madeline took over the abandoned draft as a neutral meeting-place, partially because it was still on the network and partially because it's not a bad summary.

SCP-2447

Eekium

Was, in reality, only ever partially contained. At least one instance is still at large roaming around Maine. SCP-2447 instances reproduce by constructing new entities from analog synthesizer machinery and human flesh, so even one entity can spawn more. In other words, there's know way of knowing how many of them there could be.

SCP-2470

Gene R

The theory expounded in the collapsible box is correct; strictly speaking, the object does not exist, but this un-existence is contagious. Yet the "paradox" will work - that which having come into sight cannot be cognized, can also not be non-cognized and will thus lead to a system freeze.

The cognizable entity of the object is actually the object itself, but normally (when not perceived directly) it does not pose any problems due to being too complicated for the human mind. Yet, during the sleep, the subconscious has a much greater ability to construct entities, and in rare cases of some people who know too much about 2470 or overinterpret it, the subconsciousness creates such an entity. Dreams cease when the object residing in the subconscious consumes each and every mental image therein.

The complex process for handling the affected (amnestic and neurotoxin treatment) is there for the purpose of initially destroying the information about the object in the subconscious, and only eliminating the host afterwards; we do not know what would happen, should the host be simply killed, but there are concerns that this may only let the object loose. Or give it a concept of death, which is even more fraught with danger.

That which can be known, can technically be contrived, thus the neutralization procedure ends with the termination of the majority of the personnel, destroying documental records and triggering the Area nuclear charge.

That was exactly the way the cultists created the object: the entire sect had been working on the concept for a long time, followed by its most advanced members joining their minds in a ritual and constructing the necessary image. The majority of the cult was not involved in this directly, they survived and are still at large, but they have no intention of attacking anyone - they consider their task to be done and their goal to be reached sooner or later. They do not know about the "paradox" and consider containment failure to be only a matter of time.

SCP-2473

Agent MacLeod

SCP-2473 was built by the same civilization that constructed SCP-1795. Whatever the Pattern Screamers are, the people who built the Empire saw them coming. The Builders tried to run. They didn't get far.

The autopilot of 2473 is borderline sapient. It's not supposed to be able to do what it did for its lone passenger, but it knew how to use its own backdoors. It launched on accident, but saw the Pattern Screamers coming and decided to lay low instead of going back.

The process of uploading into the ship's hardware broke the passenger's mind; she wasn't stuck drifting, the way she remembers it. She was strapped in properly, complete with catheters for feeding/waste removal. She doesn't remember her own face, and the face thing was also meant to be symbolic of the fact that she's not quite human anymore.

The autopilot knows that the Pattern Screamers can wait forever, so it waited until it had slowly drifted out of its original star system, which took 20,000+ years. Then it kicked on the Alcubierre and hightailed it for Earth. (Hence the gamma rays.) The Alcubierre disengaged after the ship reached our solar system. It watched and listened on the entire ride here, picked a quiet spot to land, and sat back and watched while the Foundation poked and prodded.

The passenger doesn't even know that the autopilot is there. This is part of why her narrative was distorted.

SCP-2496

Communism will win

The proper grading of SCP-2496 is an axiom of the Foundationverse. Completely unbreakable. It is a law of physics that 2496 will be graded correctly. It's like gravity, except more stringent.

The axiom corresponding to the proper scoring of 2496 came into existence at the same time that 2496 itself did — 2496 is not some accidental realization of a pre-existing facet of reality.

The interaction between 2496 and other fundamental forces (i.e. the ones that would make any other test work like a normal test) is so bizarre and random because the cultural peculiarities that correspond to things like "test", "score", and "minute" are of a different character than (almost) all of the other laws that govern the Foundationverse. There is (necessarily) a particular logic to how the test is graded under particular conditions, but it's so non-intuitive and outside the realm of human experience that we can't distinguish it from just random shit. The things that happen to make the test get graded properly are not consistent with the laws of physics, but that's okay, because physics do not reign supreme.

tl;dr 2496 is the most powerful anomaly in the foundationverse and secretly a mary sue

SCP-2508

Eekium

SCP-2508 is, from a writing standpoint, the embodiment of melancholic isolation. In universe, it's a safe place to wait for… Something. Whatever that something is appears to harbor no ill-will towards humanity, but what it is and what its intentions are remain completely unknown. The only real contact the inhabitants of the cottage even have with this entity is through the transmissions it sends via the foliage in the basement. There is, however, one thing known about this nondescript entity, and that's that it's trying to get to SCP-2508, and given how long SCP-2508 has been around, it must be traveling a very very long way.

SCP-2511

MrWrong

This was an effective rewrite of a previous SCP I had deleted, also named SCP-2511. In that previous draft, it revolved around a character that is essentially a kappa professor of its species' society. And my Sociology paper was on the 25th of November (25/11).

SCP-2514

mlister

SCP-2514 was created by one Isabel Helga Anastasia Parvati Wondertainment V. It's a gift to her brother, Jeremy Huertes. Although her mind forgot about their connection, her heart didn't, which is why she subconsciously names all of her dogs after him. As to why Jeremy needs a pet horse? Well what kid doesn't want a pet pony? Especially after losing their parents to a tragic and undefined accident? But why was it a rush job, and what's with all the symptoms that it induces?

On top of everything else, Jeremy has cancer. 2514 is Isabel's way of healing him, even though she is merely Doctor Wondertainment, not an actual doctor with an actual PHD. All the side effects revolve around counteracting a child's conception of cancer, or rather, cancer + chemotherapy. They've become emaciated? Make them fat. They're low on energy? Stuff them full of sugar and shorten their attention span. They're going bald? Make them grow hair all over. Unfortunately, the Foundation intercepted the gift before it reached its rightful owner. Thankfully, the Foundation is cold, not cruel, and it might just have something in store for Jeremy…

SCP-2575

Patrick Whelan

SCP-2575 is the physical manifestation of humanity's desire to colonize outer space, it is made of silt and clay and in outer space (the symbolism there is obvious). Its orbit between the Earth, Moon, and L2 & the SCP-2575-A form as an O'neill cylinder are references to "The high frontier" by O'neill in '76. Most of the numbers and dates, as well as the second transmission are (veeeery tangentially as far as the numbers go) related to the Challenger disaster on January 28th of 1986, the anomaly came into existance later that day, and will terminate 100 years later. I consider that event the primary turning point where humanity became less interested in space travel and started the steady downward trend in optomism toward space exploration we've seen over the last 30 years (although that has been reversing a little in recent years)

SCP-2575-A is the human dream of space travel (what we could do), SCP-2575-B is the reality of space travel (what we are doing), and SCP-2575-C is the cost of space travel (what we wish we hadn't done). SCP-2575-C forms whenever bad shit related to space goes down, that could be disasters, or the death of space travel pioneers, etc. SCP-2575-C will continue to take damage until it is completely destroyed, an event which will occur on January 28th, 2086, immediately prior to atmospheric re-entry (SCP-2575 ceases to exist at that point).

SCP-2575 exists in the Rat's Nest canon (at least in my mind) and its neutralization in 2086 coincides with the rough "point of no return" around the late 2080s, where the world moves from being dominated by humanity to being dominated by anomalies. This is part of the reason SCP-2575 is kind of contained with a handwave "just tell people it is something else" is the thrust of containment, because this is SMALL peanuts on the Foundation's plate by the time this document was written (sometime post 2039 but pre-2071, I had 2043 as the year in my head but it doesn't matter at all) People pretty much stop dreaming about going to outer space when they all get murdered/have to worry about being murdered constantly, hence the destruction of the human dream of outer space.

SCP-2578

daveyoufool

The 🌙🌙🌙 symbol associated with SCP-2578 refers to the Triple Moon (the name of which is a reference to the three moons over Corbenic, a human organization stationed in a remote corner of one of Corbenic's many afterlives. Triple Moon was initially a differently-named organization a lot like the Foundation. They come from a parallel iteration of Earth where everything went completely and utterly wrong until the straw broke the camel's back - in the form of a ZK-class reality failure scenario.

In order to make sure that other iterations of earth don't follow the example of their own fucked-up one, the Triple Moon was founded with the aid of the Impenetrable (a lawful-neutral spider deity also from SCP-2922) to make sure other versions of earth don't follow the dangerous path of their own. But since life can't cross over from Corbenic to the realms of the living, the Triple Moon takes resources and technology from Corbenic to build and deploy advanced inorganic constructs, such as SCP-2578-D, to carry out their work as guardians.

As GoIs go, the Triple Moon's intentions are definitely Lawful Good, but like most human organizations for Lawful Good purposes, they're prone to over-bureaucracy and are seen as naïve by some other orgs among the living.

To the Triple Moon, SCP-2578-D is a Limulid-class sentinel drone.

SCP-2585

Anborough

SCP-2585 is a temporal superweapon developed by the organization known as Black Eagle (A group devoted to the design and production of anomalous weaponry, founded by an unidentified individual known only by the alias Jean Durand in conjunction with the US government during the 1970s, developed concurrently with SCP-1514. SCP-2585 is a semi-sentient or autonomous entity manifesting as a source of electromagnetic radiation. Radiation produced by SCP-2585 sporadically triggers volatile reactions in local spacetime, transforming or outright destroying matter and energy upon contact. At times, SCP-2585 may bind itself to a sapient organism (typically a human being), who is thereafter the anomaly's "host." The host is able to control the effects of SCP-2585 to various degrees, but suffers from near annihilation of their subjective self.

SCP-2585 was originally meant to be deployed from a military space shuttle (the Horizon), however, the weapon unexpectedly activated during the vessel's first orbital flight, and subsequently bound itself to pilot Phillip McGinnis. The disruption caused by SCP-2585's activation caused the Horizon to change course and begin reentry. It is unknown how the vessel managed to survive the imprecise reentry, but this is likely attributable SCP-2585's properties. The Horizon then impacted K2 near the summit, creating an extradimensional space within which SCP-2585 now currently exists.

SCP-2591

daveyoufool

A while ago, I said that Dr. Spanko is actually some kind of omnipotent space deity that's in retirement. As much as I love that headcanon, I'm going to go ahead and retcon it, as that's what I used as the basis for SCP-2803.

So, what kind of "authority figure" is he to important keter-class entities?

Only insofar as Mickey Mouse is an authority figure to humans.

Fact is, Dr. Spanko is a character from a successful cartoon franchise in an external iteration of reality's pop culture canon. His speech mannerisms are Reality-DSA233701's equivalent of simple English, and in his perspective, we're all talking in overcomplicated gibberish.

He came to this reality in 1993, when Prometheus Labs was developing the dimensional gateway called "Project Bifrost" that would later be known to the Foundation as SCP-2591-Omega. After several failed attempts to find a stable parallel reality without a cyanide-based atmosphere or grass made of human flesh (don't ask), they came upon Reality-DSA233702, the set of the popular Reality-DSA233701 cartoon "Designated Shenanigans Area." During exploration, Dr. Spanko absentmindedly walked out the gateway to find more gummy worms, and went on a "YOU HAS STRANGLEFRUITS?" rampage that tore open the eardrums of [REDACTED] PL staff. When that got him nowhere, he flew around the world in search of gummy worms - a long adventure that came to an end in an empty field somewhere in Sussex.

Dr. Spanko's not a king or a god (though some anomalies may mistakenly believe him to be), but any dimension-hopping reality bender who's hip to what kids like has seen at least the first season of Designated Shenanigans Area.

SCP-2602

Communism will win

SCP-2602 used to be a library.

SCP-2603

Crayne

Küllo Toome was involved in the same disastrous GRU-P operation that cost Karsten Eiker his sister.

SCP-2617

MrWrong

The 17th of June is the date where the Romanov royals were executed by the Bolsheviks.

SCP-2657

AFX Neuromancer

I didn't start SCP-2657 with this in mind, but it actually turned out to be a descendant of Pennywise, from Stephen King's novel It.

I had a spider, and had to put it somewhere. Derry seemed like as good a place as any.

It's probably been over ten years since I read it, but at the end of the novel, when the Loser's Club confronts It in the sewers of Derry as adults, the closest their minds can perceive Its true form is that of a giant spider. And she's pregnant.

They think they destroyed all the eggs. They were wrong. The few spiders that survived don't retain any of the cosmic power that their mother had (kind of like Shelob in comparison to Ungoliant, or the spiders of Mirkwood in comparison to Shelob), but they're still oversized and have a taste for children, just like mom.

The factory discussed in the first interview is on Neibolt Street. I don't remember exactly what the blacked out portion regarding the missing girl said verbatim, but it was something along the lines of: "Rachel Torres disappeared from Derry City Park on (some date in late June or early July) at approximately 7 PM (?). It was presumed by local authorities that she had fallen and drowned in the Kenduskeag Canal."

Also, the first set of numbers in the addenda aren't random, they're actually Julian date calendar numbers. So, for example the second addendum, the communication test, is 16195, which would translate to July 13, 2016. Presumably, in-universe if a hardcopy of the file got mixed up, somebody who knew the formatting could glance at the addenda and be able to set them in chronological order at a glance.

SCP-2682

faminepulse

SCP-2682 is a self insert.

SCP-2697

Photosynthetic

SCP-2697-1 is a compact terraforming device, sent to Earth from the world that would later send us SCP-697. The "unidentified liquid" released by 2697-1, and the residue found in the cracks surrounding it, are an earlier stage in the invention of 697; by the time its creators sent 697, they'd learned to make the stuff fireproof under most circumstances.

They've also improved their AI technology since then. The brain of the terraforming device was a pretty dim bulb; when reality itself rejected the thing, burning away all its hard work on the surface, it didn't immediately take the hint. Instead, it spent a year bringing in more transformative-sludge reserves before trying again. And again. And again. It took over fifty repetitions to finallly go dormant, which was long enough for the yearly fire cycle to seep into the slow, dreaming memory of the land itself. Places are not swift thinkers, nor rash ones, and the valley has ensured a cleansing burn every single year since.

(For what it's worth, I didn't write 697 — I just wrote 2697 based off my headcanon for it.)

SCP-2733

ahbonjour

2733-1 was owned by a guy who decreed heads would roll after he got bought out. The death industry is real and freaks me out. Die at small businesses!

SCP-2735

Cyclopian

The enormous disaster that wiped out SCP-2735's civilization was the Great Oxygenation Event.

SCP-2735-1 was an engineer, SCP-2735-2 was a leader, and SCP-2735-3 was a scientist. SCP-2735-4 wasn't originally part of the mission, and was only on the ship because SCP-2735-3 and it were extremely close (basically as close as two asexually-reproducing, genderless beings can be to being romantically involved. Really good friends.) and -3 had refused to take part in it unless -4 was saved as well. This is why -4 wasn't really psychologically prepared in the same way as -1, -2 and -3, and why it had such a disastrous breakdown.

SCP-2771

Petrograd

SCP-2771 is from a place that shares the structure of our laws and bureaucracy, but without our intent or meaning. The kidnapping of agents was the equivalent of their government deciding to privatize their border checkpoints in order to reduce costs. The fact that they have to "employ" dozens or hundreds of cops to kidnap our guards doesn't matter; they've followed the structure.

2771-1 instances don't use language1, and think we are stupid for doing so. Imagine watching someone in a game of charades that is about to end a friendship, and that's how they treat us. Interrogations can never last long, since as long as the Foundation holds an instance, the area around the site will slowly fill up with more -1s, angrily presenting the guards with crude sketches of a person in their garb and gesticulating in a surprisingly official-looking manner.

Pulling 2771 duty sucks, but there are some perks. The Foundation confiscates any currency brought back from -2, but they match all confiscations as bonus pay. There is a running competition for highest daily take; five figures are not unheard of.

SCP-2782

Univine

SCP-1782 | Tabula Rasa: Now that I think back, a user named Freudian is responsible for the interpretation and popular canon for it. I was just transcribing a creepy ass dream. — Aaand I've retted it again with a new canon involving The Flock that you can always ignore if you like.

SCP-2788

Univine

SCP-2788: I included quite a bit of numerical symbolism into this article. There's the SCP designation itself. Seven and eight are considered lucky numbers in Chinese because they sound similar to the words for "rise" and "wealth". So, you could interpret the "788" in "2788" as something along the lines of "rising to great wealth", which is exactly what has happened to SCP-2788, Huaxi Village, and the People's Republic of China as a whole. This also explains the preponderance of eights in the article, like Site-888, and SCP-2788's discovery in 1988. The other important piece of symbolism is the description of SCP-2788's age. Sixty-seven years might seem like a rather arbitrary (and possible overly precise) number, but it also happens to be the age of the People's Republic of China, which should make sense when you consider the nature of SCP-2788.

SCP-2803

daveyoufool

Also, SCP-2803-A was formerly Dr. Spanko's second-in-command with a bit of a Starscream complex. The whole point of TotleighSoft was to one-up Dr. Spanko in a similar mission, to find a way to find its old commander and usurp its power. Fortunately, Dr. Spanko is a pacifist and wishes to have nothing to do with that unsubtle cack-doodle any longer.

SCP-2803

SCP-2880

Cyclopian

The Savaki gave SCP-2880-A their anomalous properties by punching a hole in reality into the domain of a storm deity, though they didn't realize this at first. The storm deity pushed itself into our world using the -A objects, and the Savaki destroyed them to stop its advance, though by that point they were pretty much dead anyway. The storm deity may or may not be Tāwhirimātea.

SCP-2922

daveyoufool

The 🌙🌙🌙 symbol associated with SCP-2578 refers to the Triple Moon (the name of which is a reference to the three moons over Corbenic), a human organization stationed in a remote corner of one of Corbenic's many afterlives. Triple Moon was initially a differently-named organization a lot like the Foundation. They come from a parallel iteration of Earth where everything went completely and utterly wrong until the straw broke the camel's back - in the form of a ZK-class reality failure scenario.

As GoIs go, the Triple Moon's intentions are definitely Lawful Good, but like most human organizations for Lawful Good purposes, they're prone to over-bureaucracy and are seen as naïve by some other orgs among the living.

To the Triple Moon, SCP-2578-D is a Limulid-class sentinel drone.

Dr. Robert Boyd: Cousin to Dr. Roget, and also the grandson of Director Gillespie. Jealous of the attention showered onto his cousin, who oversaw all of his research, even though he does a ton of the legwork. Currently an obscure researcher, known for the volume of his reports. Takes after his grandfathers work in interviewing SCP objects, and his work includes:

SCP-2979

Eekium

SCP-2979 is not and has never been a real person. He is, however, very much sentient.

SCP-2991

Zyn

I don't have much headcanon'd stuff about Scarf that isn't already in the article's discussion page… except that Scarf may have a few siblings out there in the world. The original creator was probably working on something to keep Scarf company. Maybe there's room for a tale about Scarf and Hat.

SCP-2995

Anborough

The Anborough Family

Geoffrey: Charles' grandfather and Brian's father. So far he's only been mentioned as a former site director in SCP-2995, but he has the same misfortune regarding Keter objects that his son and grandson share. He served as O5-5 before Brian. No, he is not the first Anborough at the Foundation, and their family legacy is not happening intentionally.

SCP-3085

ObserverSeptember

  • In real life, World 346 is the official world for agility training. The Ardougne course is usually packed, because it gives the best agility xp in the game.
  • Interview Log 073 = THE B0aty NUMBER (meme in the OSRS community)
  • "Standing in place and shooting dud spells at rats for hours"
  • The helmet the adventurer is wearing in Discovery Log 002, Verac's helm, is a strange and illogical thing to wear on an agility course given its weight. I'd like to imagine the player was already at level 99 (and thus couldn't fail the course), was one of the first to see it after the update, and…yeah.

SCP-3185

ObserverSeptember

  • As a whole, the piece is a reflection of the author's disdain for copyright laws and extremely long copyright extensions, and the main theme is a twisted, illogical form of karma.
  • It's from…a future. It might not be the future, merely a possible alternate reality; either is possible. The "your culture and ours" line is ambiguous in that respect.
  • The PDPS' motivations are both moral and pragmatic. Morally, REPENTANCE is basically them getting their revenge on organizations that lobbied to extend copyright in a karmic way. Specifically, the PDPS really hated the Copyright Term Extension Act because it ended up resulting in orphan works being lost, hence why they despise Jack Valenti in particular. That's where the pragmatic part comes in: the PDPS always secures a digital copy of the books it assigns for retrieval missions, and makes them available in their future reality.
  • The book from the sample letter is an actual book on Project Gutenberg. As an in-universe headcanon, I imagine the sample letter being part of a control test, and the book's availability as a direct result of Hu completing the retrieval. I left this out of the article because it felt too on the nose and wouldn't have helped the narrative.
  • Finally, an element I will deliberately leave ambiguous: whether or not 3185 knows its letters are being intercepted, and if so, its reaction to the Foundation. That's good Tale material if I ever feel up to writing conventional prose again.

SCP-3310

stormbreath

SCP-3310 has one of the only [DATA EXPUNGED]s I've ever used on the wiki, when talking about the Γ-Event associated with the 1988 event. Just what is behind that [DATA EXPUNGED]?

Before I explain, I want to go over the 1988 event in a little more detail. 3310 is highly inspired by real events, with the 1988 evet having been a real event (and one of the larger parts of inspiration for the SCP as a whole). The story about the scientists removing the log from the lake, immediately seeing storms, putting it back and the storms ending is real (although, likely coincidence/exaggerated).

However, these scientists didn't observe any monsters. The monsters became a central element of my SCP, but were one of my own contributions to the story.

The [DATA EXPUNGED] is covering up the following:

No SCP-3310-Γ was observed at the time.

So why is that expunged, both in-universe and out? The in-universe explanation is that the Foundation suspects that there was indeed a Gamma instance they just don't know about, and doesn't want researchers to grow lazy - containment is, after all, focused on stopping the Gammas. Saying there is a chance that containment could break but no Gamma shows up has the risk of putting the containment staff - most of whom are not the normal Foundation employee - into a potentially dangerous mindset. It's expunged so they think something happened, and take everything more seriously.

Out of universe? I thought saying the above was too boring but didn't want to make something up, because it would hurt the realism.

SCP-3362

not_a_seagull

I like to believe that God from SCP-3362 is floating around in a VHS tape somewhere.

SCP-3407

HotColes

SCP-3407 isn't just the man's memories, it's the soul of the man who is trapped inside the projector, forced to watch memories of himself for the rest of eternity. At the end of the article, as soon as he realizes he's not alone, does what he can to give off a message asking what happened to his daughter Lily. The unfortunate thing, however; is that the man isn't aware of time anymore, either. Lily died a long time ago, and the man inside is forever trapped to never know what happened to her.

SCP-3408

Jim North

I did not actually have a plan when I first started writing Site-3408, and as such I figure any alternative interpretations are just as good as mine, but here's what popped into my head as I got toward the end.

Site-3408 is, just as it claims to be, one of the most technologically advanced sites the Foundation has created. Mostly automated so that it can, in emergency situations, run with a very small crew. Say, about 10 to 15 people, not counting researchers doing experiments. This is mainly thanks to the experimental AI tasked with overseeing much of the functionality. Something happens (something … anomalous?!) and the AI goes a little wacky. It still wants to perform its primary function, but it's no longer 100% certain how to do that, and the techs can't really figure out what's wrong or how to fix it yet.

While they try to get the situation resolved, the AI has gotten into the digital SCP files and basically taken one over, writing its own little brochure amidst its mental haze. The techs keep deleting and/or altering SCP-3408, but the site AI keeps going in and reverting it back.

The file for SCP-3408 isn't the only weird thing the AI is doing, but it is one of the more visible to Foundation staff outside the site.

SCP-3449

Captain Kirby

First, most SCP articles that are themselves hazardous, tend to have warnings on them in big bold letters saying "This Is Hazardous!". However, 3449 doesn't have that, even though by simply reading it you're exposed. That's because the anomaly stopped the Foundation from writing that altogether by the time they figured it out. At least, not in a way that would be at all legible, so they just left it out. It wouldn't be very useful anyways, because the entire Foundation would have been exposed by that point. And by even reading that warning, someone would be exposed.

The other piece is that some people think that the video is fairly restrained and unemotional given that its pretty much the end of the world. However, that's not because the researcher isn't feeling emotional. It's because it's incredibly hard to express emotions when your body language and facial expressions are incapable of communication. The very end of that video, the researcher's face relaxes. That's because SCP-3449 is stopping him from expressing his emotions, by almost all means.

SCP-3641

DrCaroll

Apollo-99 is a mission that actually did occur. It was initiated by Site-280 administration and a secret specialized research team with the personnel being Drs. Booth, Rose, Kargard, and Lonergan. All of this was kept from the O5 Council and was eventually hidden completely because of the massive failure that the mission was.

NASED simply wanted to be remembered, and so he did a few… unspeakable things to ensure that they would not be forgotten.

SCP-3761

Westrin

1: There is going to a lot more stuff that is going to happen in the War than what is described. Due to the nature of most future telling SCPs and how restrictive they are with information regarding the future, a LOT of details/events are left out. However, a few thing are set in stone and are true:

A: The War will last exactly 24 hours.

B: Squirrels will be the only animals that participate in the war.

2: While the story of Tree Critter and The Caretaker is a pretty important point in Hand of the Trees, it isn't the most important part of the scripture. Tree Critter and The Caretaker's story was chosen by the Foundation because it was most relevant to SCP-3761, so there is a LOT more to Patteeism (As a side note, पत्ती means "Leaf" in Hindi and is pronounced "Pattee".)

3: There's gonna be a giant hole in Kansas by the end of the War. The "Tree-Critter-Bomb" described by the Neo squirrels? That thing isn't weak. It's very much comparable to an atom bomb in terms of the destruction it can put out.

4: Squirrels are smarter than the Foundation thinks they are. Average squirrel intelligence puts them on par with humans, if not smarter. The Foundation doesn't know this due to lack of communication from any squirrel, making it difficult to determine their intelligence.

SCP-3833

SCP-3833-3 is just a normal dude, just very stubborn.

SCP-3886

Ember16

The full name of SCP-3886-02 is Patrice Tavel. No one really knows why she was originally assigned to SCP-3886, nor how she got past the standard Foundation background checks given her grandfather’s connection to the object. The investigation as to what (or who) might have precipitated the junior researcher’s contact with SCP-3886 is still ongoing.

SCP-3901

LurkD

The image for SCP-3901 is actually a picture of my mother from college.

SCP-3905

ObserverSeptember

SCP-3905 is one of the most well-known SCPs in the Foundation, because it's one of the few that doesn't have any clearance requirements to view the file (well, you have to know about the Foundation's nature; civilian non-Foundation employees don't need to know about dancing soda cans). When a new researcher joins the Foundation, they found out about it fairly quickly.

The reasoning behind this is that it's fairly innocuous while also being inexplicable and very memorable. Letting newbies know about say, 106 would scare away a lot of people (justifiably so, since it's a scary job). On the other hand, 3905 is a good example of how the anomalous world isn't always dangerous, but it is still very much a threat to normalcy and the average joe can't find out about it.

SCP-3905 assignment is rather ignoble, but it's a good conversation starter at water coolers in every Site. "Oh, you got assigned to watch those frat boy soda cans?" "Yeah, it was weird. Really putting my degree to good use, huh?"
