explosion

A service station destroyed by an SCP-XXXX event in August of 2012 prior to becoming an SCP-XXXX-1 instance.

Foundation web crawler AE-7623 has been commissioned with the intent of searching the internet as well as other forms of media for abnormalities in or immediately following large explosions in rural areas. Data collected on this topic is routed to MTF Ψ-13 ("Bang Brigade") which consists of Foundation personnel experienced in handling both temporal disturbances and thaumaturgy1.

Upon confirmation of an SCP-XXXX event, MTF Ψ-13 is to be dispatched to quarantine the immediate area as well as examine the extent of the anomalous activity2. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be fenced off with a perimeter established consisting of an electrified fence surrounding the object in a manner preventing public view of anomalies caused by SCP-XXXX. As of Exploration-XXXX.1 all exploration or entry into SCP-XXXX-1 instances is strictly forbidden and any transmissions originating from an instances interior are to be ignored.

Due to the unstable nature of SCP-XXXX-1's anomalous properties, any and all changes in behavior are to be refereed over to the current acting research head of the SCP-XXXX project. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action up to reassignment to a supplementary project.

Description

SCP-XXXX is a thaumaturgic ritual of unknown meaning and purpose. Periodically, humans will be subconsciously compelled the work together to complete it caused by a currently unknown force. When active, affected humans will perform seemingly meaningless actions which when done simultaneously by others will cause slight shifts in the local reality always resulting in the relocation of objects and other matter into a situation in which a sizable explosion would occur. In all reported cases, these events have only occurred in rural environments within man-made structures such as homes, stores and offices.

Once the chemical or physical reaction occurs causing an explosion despite the non-anomalous nature of the explosion itself, it will not cause any damage to the environment expected with such an event. Instead the matter which would be affected will undergo rapid and irreversible conversion into a extra-dimensional space which forms between 2 to 5 minutes after the initial detonation. These spaces hereby designated instances of SCP-XXXX-1 externally appear as opaque, shapeless masses comprised of an unknown material. Said objects are incapable of interacting with any form of matter directly. The only known way of entering the interior space is via one or more distinct gray colored patches present on the instance correlating in location with the entrances of the former structure.

The interior of SCP-XXXX-1 instances vary though always appear strikingly similar to that of the interior of the structure previously occupying the space. Humans located within the former structure at the time of the explosion are also present though have undergone massive mutations due to a reality bending force of unknown origin. In all reported cases, humans present have shown to be in a temporal loop constantly repeating certain action related to what they were doing immediately prior to the explosion. They are often unaware of this fact and have yet to be successfully removed from the anomaly.

Viewing through windows located within the space shows a void-like area with large moving shapes partially present. the behavior of humans in SCP-XXXX-1 varies with some acting akin to their previous selves while others taking on more animalistic mentalities. Physical examination of subjects invariably display a lack of fertility and proper life functions required for someone to continue living. The interiors of SCP-XXXX-1 is subject to partial changes with industrial materials transmuting into organic substances at random and changes in the size of a given room or object.

All attempts at preventing or stopping SCP-XXXX from activating has failed as SRAs have proven ineffective at any point between an explosion and the formation of SCP-XXXX-1 and a theory has been devised that a form of memetic hazard manifests in order to prevent the ritual from being interrupted or halted from an outside force though this has never been proven.

Interview-XXXX.1

On April 22, 1989 Following the conclusion of an SCP-XXXX event within a small outlet store in turn successfully creating an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Using a Space-time Insertion tool D-7612 was successful incorporated within the temporal anomaly in order the question a relatively unharmed human within.


[BEGIN LOG]


D-7612 approaches the designated person identified as 19 year old James Patterson working at the counter.

D-7612: Um hey?

James Patterson: [Gloomily] Oh hi, sorry is there something I can help you with?

D-7612: Actually yes can I just ask you a few questions quickly? I kind of have to.

James Patterson nods in agreement.

D-7612: I'm running a bit late for work could you tell me what time it is?

James Patterson: Sure thing.

James Patterson produces a packet watch from his left pant pocket of note that the face of the watch is blank.

James Patterson: It's a quarter past eight. You might want-a hurry up you don't want to keep your students waiting3.

D-7612: Sorry but I don't quite know what you mean. Do I know you from somewhere?

James Patterson: [Sarcastic] Ha ha very funny Mr.Davids. I know I'm one of the more quiet kids but I always talk to you before and after class you know about the city of Alagadda and how I shook the ambassadors hand…

D-7612 cuts him off.

D-7612: Wait stop, I need to ask some more questions you're not making much sense.

James Patterson: Ask away.

D-7612: What do you do you know outside of work?

James Patterson: I'm sorry, I don't really understand what you're talking about. I'm not in work, no yes I am. Damn I'm late for school no where's my salvation?

At this point the area around the two subjects begins to blur and warp before returning to normal.

D-7612: Um hey?

James Patterson: [Gloomily] Oh hi, sorry is there something I can help you with?

Exploration-XXXX.1

Details: On April 31, 2012 reports of an SCP-XXXX-1 were intercepted by MTF Ψ-13 and were traced to the Nine Note Diner in Clayton, Indiana. As the team approached the instance of SCP-XXXX-1 radio transmissions were detected to be emitting from the formed SCP-XXXX-1. As this was unusual Command ordered that MTF Ψ-13 enter the object in hopes of determining the source and possibly relaying new information about the anomaly. The following is a transcription taken from a body cam recovered outside to the SCP-XXXX-1 instance. Note that no audio is present due to data corruption.


[BEGIN LOG]


Alpha and Beta approach the south entrance of the manifested SCP-XXXX-1 where the signal appears at its strongest.

Alpha radios into Command requesting permission to enter the SCP-XXXX-1 instance due to the strong possibility of a breach in the temporal anomaly allowing free movement of those within.

Command orders that the team stands by while consulting with SCP-XXXX's research team. 2 minutes pass and MTF Ψ-13 is granted permission the enter the anomaly under the basis of a recovery mission.

Alpha signals to beta and gamma to inform them of the orders and the team approaches the southern point and enter the anomaly.

amorph

Footage as seen mid entry into the present SCP-XXXX-1 instance.


The camera footage goes static for 30 seconds before returning showing a dilapidated diner setting. In the far corner of the bar are two individuals displaying abnormal forelimbs and distorted faces. The walls are covered in symbols of unknown meaning which appear to shimmer when looked at for an extended period of time.

Located within the booths are a series of individuals exhibiting territorial behavior. Despite command's attempts, the members of MTF Ψ-13 refuse to approach them. Physically they each possess 76 small arm like appendages which appear to have a form of bioluminescence with no noticeable facial features.

There is no man in a green suit though there is an elderly female seated across.

The team moves forward ignored by all of the entities in exception to those in the booth. Gamma breaks through a barricaded door and discovers a staircase leading downward.

Beta ignites a flare and throws it down the staircase revealing 28 individual steps leading to a rusted iron door.

The team shows caution when descending due to the possibility of collapse except for Alpha, who for unknown reasons has not responded to Command since the barrier was breached.

As the team reaches the door, they look up as if hearing something startling, though this has not been confirmed. Alpha converses with Beta in an unknown language as claimed by linguists viewing the footage.

Despite orders the cease, Gamma proceeds to breach the door and step inside.

Immediately all camera feed cuts and shows static for 2 days. During this, field personnel work to recover the team which was unsuccessful.

On April May 2, 2012 at 13:30 Alpha's camera feed returns shown a massive emaciated humanoid wearing a tattered green suit. The humanoid is oozing a thick pus which began to melt the flooring around it. To the left, Beta and Gamma are bound by the hands and feet with intestinal tissue of unknown origin. Several former humans are seen laughing hysterically as music begins to become audible before cutting out.

All vital signs have since been lost for the MTF agents.

Note that the audible music has shown anomalous properties causing the combustion of listeners. To clarify the music was auditory hallucinations caused by an unknown memetic agent. Research is ongoing.

Incident XXXX.Ω

Details: On September 5, 2012 a message to the O5 Council was intercepted after bypassing all safeguards present through unknown means. The message is as follows.

To those who've ruined us,

Memories can be quite painful sometimes am I wrong? But there's always the ones that we wish to go back to. You recreate them over and over and over again though when we try to it's just ruined. Nothing is quite as what you remember. The pus spills out from the gaping jaws of childhoods ruined with green the color of life fading to blackness. Don't you wish that you could go back to your sixth birthday when you, your mom and dad sat in a diner saying hi to the one in the masquerade so wide eyed. I hope… I know that you'll listen to me that the magic of memory is no longer your concern. It's not a force that compels the affected to perform, it's because they're freed. I'm leaving now in the hopes that you've learned to accept what must be done to save you, us. Goodbye for now.

Sincerely,
The Man In The Green Suit

P.S. Remember to feel the music. ;)


Immediately following the reception of this message, the on-site nuclear warhead located at Provisional Site-76 detonated destroying it entirely. At the same time all instances of SCP-XXXX-1 dissolved into a green paste in exception to one now located in Indiana . The current Site-01 has been decommissioned due to an eye opening event with Site-88 being re-designated Site-01. Several instances of SCP-XXXX-1 have also appeared as of 2013 though we are not fearful of them anymore. Goodbye friend see you next year.
