rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a standard anomalous objects containment chamber at Site 15. The containment chamber where SCP-XXXX is stored is to be supplied with one television set capable of accepting input from SCP-XXXX and a universal DVD player remote.

SCP-XXXX-1 is to be stored with SCP-XXXX unless suitable evidence disproving their relation is discovered. Discovering the identity of the author behind SCP-XXXX-1 is currently considered a beta-level priority. All DVDs used for testing with SCP-XXXX are to be approved by the Level 3 researcher assigned to SCP-XXXX beforehand (currently Researcher Verhelle).

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Sony DVP-NS325B DVD player from the year 2003. SCP-XXXX is physically intact, with the exception of the word "four" being etched into the roof of its casing.

If a DVD is inserted into SCP-XXXX and played, the contents of the DVD will play as normal until one or more individuals depicted in the DVD will deviate from its original content and become aware of the audience.

At this point in the DVD's runtime viewers of the DVD can interact with individuals depicted in the DVD and affect the outcome of the DVD's content. Once a DVD is removed from SCP-XXXX any impact the audience made on the DVD's contents will be retained in future playbacks, regardless of the device used to play the disc.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a handwritten note that was discovered in SCP-XXXX's containment chamber. It is currently unknown how SCP-XXXX-1 entered SCP-XXXX's containment chamber, and the claims the note makes about SCP-XXXX are yet to be verified. The note itself has no observable anomalous traits other than its appearance in SCP-XXXX's containment chamber. A copy of this note can be found at the end of this documentation.

Test Log XXXX-1

Inserted: One copy of the 1997 film Titantic

Viewer(s): Researcher Verhelle

Interaction: Partway through the film's runtime Dawson makes direct eye contact with Researcher Verhelle, who introduces himself and informs Dawson of The Titanic's collision with an iceberg and his death which occur later in the film. Researcher Verhelle does not attempt to make contact with Dawson after this interaction.

Result: No noticeable changes to the plot occur until the point in the film where The Titanic is expected to collide with an iceberg. Here the film deviates from the original script and shows Dawson entering the bridge of the ship, alerting the ship's captain of the oncoming collision.

Jack is forced out of the room, but a crewman verifies his claims. The captain recharts the ship's course around the iceberg and The Titantic remains unharmed.

Approximately 20 minutes after this event the film concludes with a scene showing Dawson alive after The Titanic's voyage.

Additional Notes: NA

Test Log XXXX-2

Inserted: One copy of the 2016 film Deadpool

Viewer(s): Researcher Verhelle

Interaction: During the film's opening scene, protagonist Deadpool talks with the audience while drawing above moving traffic. Researcher Verhelle attempts to verbally communicate with Deadpool.

Result: Deadpool responds to Researcher Verhelle, unfazed by the interaction. Researcher Verhelle and Deadpool hold a conversation until Deadpool's target arrives, Deadpool apologizes and engages his target.

The film continues unaltered from this point on, with the exception of occasional asides from Deadpool directed at Researcher Verhelle as opposed to a generic audience member.

Additional Notes: NA

Test Log XXXX-3

Inserted: Disc containing a recording of D-7398 reading at his desk alone in his living quarters taken the day prior to testing

Viewer(s): D-7398, Researcher Verhelle

Interaction: D-7398 is instructed to get the attention of his recorded self.

Result: The recording of D-7398 appears startled, and while getting up from his desk trips and falls onto the corner of his metal bed frame. The recording D-7398 suffers a fatal head injury, and the recording abruptly ends.

After the recording ends, D-7398 spontaneously collapses. Researcher Verhelle removes the disc from SCP-XXXX and alerts on-site medical staff.

Following this encounter, D-7398 is declared deceased as a result of unknown causes.

Additional Notes: It is currently unknown whether SCP-XXXX had any relation to the death of D-7398, and if so, why SCP-XXXX has not demonstrated these effects until this test.

Test Log XXXX-4

Inserted: DVD copy of security footage of the on-site break room depicting Researcher Leggett spilling hot coffee on his right hand, suffering 2nd-degree burns. The footage was taken a week prior to testing.

Viewer(s): Researcher Verhelle

Interaction: Researcher Verhelle warns Researcher Leggett to be careful with his drink as Leggett is grabbing the beverage

Result: Researcher Leggett takes his hand away from the coffee, and searches for the source of Researcher Verhelle's voice. After a period of about 10 seconds, Researcher Leggett returns to his drink and does not burn himself with its contents.

Additional Notes: Researcher Leggett claims to have no memory of suffering a burn, and foundation medical records contain no documentation that lists Researcher Leggett as ever having an injury that matches the security footage.

Investigations into the origins of this footage are ongoing.

Copy of SCP-XXXX-1

To whoever finds this,

I have a theory about how SCP-XXXX's anomaly works.

The last two tests turned out a bit different than we expected. Normally stuff doesn't get messed with outside the screen when we put things in XXXX.

The only thing that was different these times was what we used. In both tests that went awry, we used security footage instead of stuff from movies or TV. I think the reason this made a difference has to do with whoever watches the recording.

I mean, when you watch Lord of the Rings, you don't really think about the actors and the sets that are behind each scene right? So when you shove that into XXXX is only affects the recording. But when you put, say, a video of your kid's first steps, you see that as a thing that really happened. When you put something like that into XXXX reality itself starts to change.

I think that's what happened to the D-Class, and where the recording of that guy burning his hand came from.

I am going to test my hypothesis, and no I don't have approval to do this so don't ask. If this works you will be thanking me anyway. If this goes as planned I won't be around to tell the tale, but I hope this note does the job that I can't.

Sincerely,
-Dr. Killian

Security Footage Taken on 05/04/20

[03:00]- Researcher Verhelle enters SCP-XXXX's containment chamber holding an unmarked disc and a handwritten note.

[03:05]- Researcher Verhelle inserts the disc into SCP-XXXX, and footage of Researcher Verhelle participating in Test Log XXXX-1 begins to play

[06:30]- Researcher Verhelle introduces himself after Test XXXX-1 concludes in the recording

[06:36]- Researcher Verhelle explains a theory similar to that presented in SCP-XXXX-1 reguarding the effects of SCP-XXXX to his recorded self. The recording of Researcher Verhelle begins copying this information onto his clipboard, adding the event to the notes made about Test XXXX-1.
[06:37]- Researcher Verhelle instructs his recorded self to leave a note in SCP-XXXX's chamber, and then proceeds to dictate the contents of the note to his recorded self.

[06:43]- Researcher Verhelle removes the disc from SCP-XXXX. Approximately 10 seconds later noise is heard outside SCP-XXXX's chamber, indicating personnel attempting to enter the chamber

[§¶:ßø]- Researcher Verhelle releases his findings to Foundation research staff, and now does not need to tell his past self of how SCP-XXXX works because he already knows. Since he does not tell his past self how SCP-XXXX works, he does not know enough to not tell himself meaning he does tell his past self who then, in turn, does not tell his past self angfhx
