Item #: SCP-XXXX


A flock of Chimney Swifts (Chaetura pelagica) roosting inside SCP-xxxx.

NOTE: As of 12/2/1995, the following document is for archival purposes only.

Special Containment Procedures: The house containing SCP-xxxx is currently Foundation property and occupied by several research personnel. Equipment is provided to remove the remaining creosote buildup inside SCP-xxxx to prevent fire hazards.

Description: SCP-xxxx refers to the chimney of a two-story house in ████, North Yorkshire, England. SCP-XXXX was officially documented in 1875, maintaining only an unofficial 'reputation' among past homeowners and local chimney sweeps for several decades for having a higher-than-average fatality rate.

SCP-xxxx houses a spatial anomaly within its flue, seemingly extending the inside of the chimney to a currently unknown length. It is lined with the same type of bricks used to construct the exterior. The anomaly can be accessed from either opening; however, it is unclear whether the openings are connected, as objects dropped from the top fails to exit the bottom.

Initial exploration using robotic equipment has not observed any other additional anomalous phenomena within SCP-xxxx. Creosote formations are encountered as far as 1200 meters up the flue.

Addendum: Incident xxxx-A

On 12/2/1995, a number of wooden recreational items suddenly exited the fireplace connected to SCP-xxxx. Several minutes later, an emaciated humanoid entity with excessive facial hair fell down the chimney, covered in a thick layer of soot. It began exhibiting reality-manipulating abilities and reacted aggressively towards personnel, with two members suffering second-degree burns. It then escaped through the front entrance and into another residence nearby, which coincided with SCP-xxxx collapsing inward from unknown forces. The owner of said residence later claimed the entity snapped its fingers before entering the house's fireplace and disappeared.

A leather sack was discovered inside the remains of SCP-xxxx, containing additional non-anomalous items, and a small amount of coal1. Subsequent examinations revealed that SCP-xxxx no longer exhibits anomalous properties, and was reclassified as Neutralized. Witnesses were given amnestics and a cover story of a chimney fire was disseminated. The house was purchased by another individual after repairs were made.

welp, something after one and a half year of not writing anything I guess
