Item #: SCP-5000

Object Class: Pending

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the lack of knowledge regarding SCP-5000, its origins, or whether or not it truly is anomalous, containment procedures and description of the object are still pending. Whether or not the phenomenon itself should be Decommissioned if possible also remains pending.

Description: SCP-5000 is a probabilistic anomaly beginning on 12/29/2019 and continuing (so far) until the present day, in which no new or unpredicted anomalous activity has occurred. This includes the discovery of new SCP objects, containment breaches, or risks to general normalcy aside from the predictable and frequent actions of particular anomalie known to the Foundation. The only exception to this is SCP-5000 itself. The cause of SCP-5000 is currently unknown, if it is even anomalous at all.

There are multiple theories as to why SCP-5000 is taking place. These include the discovery and containment/neutralization of anomalies by a hostile Group or Person of Interest, anomalous entities and creators of anomalous objects having learned to evade Foundation forces, or even that the Foundation has succeeded in containing all anomalous objects and phenomena to exist.

Addendum 5000.1: On 01/14/2020, the O5 Council received the following message from an unknown source:

Hey, I think it’s about time we got this ball rolling. Come to [ADDRESS REDACTED] sometime.

Agents from MTF Alpha-1 (“Red Right Hand”) arrived at the address, a small, unowned suburban home. They entered to find most of the house bare, with the exception of the master bedroom, which contained a single sleeping raccoon. Upon the agents’ entry into the room, the raccoon awoke, looked at the researchers for a few moments, and ran past them and out the door. Immediately following this, SCP-5001 was discovered in [REDACTED].

Addendum 5000.2: Following this incident, anomalous activity has occurred at rates roughly equivalent to as they were before SCP-5000, and the phenomenon has been assumed Neutralized.

Addendum 5000.3:On 01/28/2020, the O5 Council received a second message:

Thank you for waking him up, we really needed to get the contest going. I’m excited to see who wins!

The correlation between the raccoon and SCP-5000 is unknown, as well as the identity of the messenger and the “contest” being spoken of.
