Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous condition transmitted primarily via sexual contact. Infected subjects exhibit no physical or psychological symptoms. SCP-XXXX infection can only be detected by uninfected sexual partners of infected individuals; when an uninfected individual is brought to orgasm by an infected individual1, they experience a perceptual anomaly which includes total sensory hallucination and significant time dilation.

This perceptual anomaly consists of the entirety of the action role-playing videogame Skyrim, released by Bethesda Softworks in 2011, beginning at the start of the game, when the player character awakens in a horse-drawn carriage on their way to be executed, and not ending until the defeat of the game's "final boss", the dragon Alduin, at the end of the main quest-line. Affected individuals report being placed into the world of the game completely, able to perform actions2 not normally possible in the original game; however, conversations with non-player characters are still limited to the game's original dialogue options, and certain areas, such as any land beyond the bounds of the game's world map, remain inaccessible. Affected individuals are able to access the game's menus, manage their inventory, and save and load their progress by closing their eyes, but all menu options that would quit out of the game are unavailable.

Affected individuals report being aware that they will remain in the game world until they complete the main quest-line; Regardless of how much subjective time it takes an individual to complete Skyrim3, to outside observers the perceptual anomaly only lasts for the duration of orgasm4, and its physical signs - closed eyes, open mouth, labored breathing - are nearly indistinguishable from the effects of a particularly strong orgasm.

SCP-XXXX is transmitted in approximately 70% of sexual encounters during which a participant experienced the perceptual anomaly. Only individuals who experienced the perceptual anomaly are at risk of contracting SCP-XXXX,
