Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Due to SCP-XXXX's location, Site-119 is hereby responsible for containing the anomaly. The McQueen Estate, located within Bend, Oregon, is to remain permanently closed from the general public. A small perimeter is to be enforced around the property itself at the discretion of Site-119's current policies and procedures. Local residents who are determined to have entered the McQueen Estate or the vicinity of SCP-XXXX are to be interrogated, amnesticized, and subsequently re-integrated following standard protocol.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a series of phenomena that occur within a 4.5-meter vicinity of a cement structure resembling a fountain located at the McQueen Estate in Deschutes County, Oregon. Around the base of SCP-XXXX, a series of thaumaturgic symbols have been discovered, although their meanings have yet to be identified. Whenever a subject who has experienced the death of a family member or close individual enters the vicinity of SCP-XXXX for an extended amount of time, several instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will emerge from the subject. SCP-XXXX-1 is the designation given to a series of incorporeal red "strings" that will extend themselves upward at an indeterminable length.

Individuals who have experienced the anomalous effects of SCP-XXXX report feeling "tired" while under its influence. This also appears to be amplified by both the length of time the subject experiences SCP-XXXX, and how recently their aforementioned close individual has passed. Despite these negative effects, however, subjects have attested to feeling "closer" to their deceased individual while in the vicinity of SCP-XXXX, which may cause some to continually stay nearby the anomaly. The underlying purpose and cause of these particular phenomena remains unclear, but it has been assumed by Foundation researchers that SCP-XXXX may be siphoning chemical energy from affected subjects via SCP-XXXX-1 through currently unknown means.

SCP-XXXX was discovered after an incident involving the residents of the McQueen Estate prompted a criminal investigation by local authorities and integrated Foundation personnel. During this investigation, Foundation personnel were also able to retrieve a journal by Gabriel McQueen — the son of the late Jason McQueen who had owned the Estate prior — which had been buried near SCP-XXXX. A series of camera recordings were also captured and provided to Foundation personnel. Both have since been added to SCP-XXXX's documentation as they appear to indicate the origins of the anomaly.
