The Abra Files

Monster House

Object Class: Euclid (formerly Safe)

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-#### has been contained on site and disguised as private porperty. The anomaly is to be surrounded by a 4 meter high concrete wall, with a team of 25 armed guards assigned to patrol the outer perimeter of the containment wall at all times, the number of armed guards is to be maintained daily. The wall is to be daily inspected for any signs of deterioration - any reported signs of deterioration are to be reported immediately to Dr. Rowe and repaired.

Any civilians trespassing the containment wall or going through SCP-####-B or -C are to be amnestizised as per protocol.

Description: SCP-#### is a small oak cottage located 1km from Kirriemuir, Scotland

Anyone approaching SCP-#### will experience intense fear triggering the ‘fight, flight or freeze’ reaction.1

If the subject reacts with the ‘fight’ reaction, Scenario ####-A occurs. The subject enters the cottage, the door slams shut and the subject is then killed by unknown means.

If the subject reacts with the ‘flight’ reaction, Scenario ####-B occurs where the subject runs from the cottage and the fear caused by #### will be hyper-focused on by the subject. Test subjects have been reported to experience extreme nightmares about what they believe is inside the cottage. A minority of subjects have believed the cottage being the one that kills.
Normally after a period of 2 days, the subject returns to SCP-#### and the fear caused reactivates the subject’s ‘fight, flight or freeze’ reaction. This cycle continues until the subject generally expires, enters the cottage or receives Class-A amnestics.

It has been noted that Class-C amnestics has shown to have no effect while Class-B amnestics only extends the time before the subject returns to #### to approximately a week.

If the subject reacts with the ‘freeze’ reaction, Scenario ####-C occurs, where the subject will hallucinate a young Caucasian female human (discovered to be Shelby Graham, POI-####-A) running out the cottage in a state of extreme emotional distress. All D-class used for tests have described the female as being 1.65 m, brown hair, blue eyes, wearing a black and red checked t-shirt with a knife tear in the one of the sleeves and the corresponding arm has a shallow slash. The arm with the slash has changed from subject to subject. The hallucination has also been described to wear skinny jeans and a pair of cheap trainers, and has been described to refer to herself as Shelby and speaks in a Scottish accent.

The hallucination will crash into the subject, apologize and then beg for help and plea for the subject to leave.
The hallucination has deflected most questions asked to it, with the only questions ####-1 has answered are ‘What’s your name?’ and ‘What happened?’ or any paraphrased equivalents of those questions. It is believed SCP-#### uses this tactic to play on the sympathy of the subject. Most of the D-class that have been used for tests that ended up in scenario SCP-####-C occurring have had a job in the emergency services. This is believed that the sympathy of these D-Class is easier for SCP-#### to manipulate.

Anywhere between 5 to 7 minutes later, the hallucination will run off into the woods if the subject hasn’t moved, if the subject reacts with the ‘flight’ reaction, the hallucination will run away from the cottage with the subject and disappear before the subject leaves the woods.
If the subject reacts with ‘fight’ reaction, the hallucination will beg for the subject not to enter the cottage but Scenario SCP-####-A occurs.

The SCP-####’s surrounding wall has been experiencing an increased rate in damage. It is currently unknown what the cause of the damages are.

Permission to change the material of SCP-####’s surrounding wall to a stronger material is currently pending approval

Addendum ####-1
Since containment a couple of unusual events have occurred.

- The corpses of 13 armed guards were discovered in a loch near SCP-####. Each guard had a different cause of death. Some include: neck snapped, disembowelled and decapitation.

- The police were flooded with 50 reports of a domestic dispute. All police officers that went to SCP-#### experienced it’s anomalous properties. None of the officers were saved.

Addendum ####-2: Discovery

SCP-#### was brought to the attention of the Foundation after police officers investigating missing cases connected to the house never returned back to work. This cycle continued until the Foundation contained SCP-####.

Addendum ####-3: Exploration Log #1

An attempt to try and explore the interior of SCP-#### was made on 31/10/18.
1030: A robot opens the door to SCP-#### and a drone flies in.
1032: The drone’s microphone picks up the noise of footsteps.
1033: Connection with the drone is lost. Before the connection was lost, the drone’s camera picked up what appears to be a human hand.

Addendum ####-4: Interview-####-A

Addendum ####-5: Incident ####-A and Document ####-γ

On 23/08/20, an unmarked diary appeared on the porch of SCP-####.

See Document ####-γ for extracts of the diary.

Document ####-γ: Diary Entries

Date: 13/08/16
Dear Diary,
I think this idea is stupid by my therapist pushed me over.
“It will help”, she said. “It might get Shelby arrested”, she said.
I sure hope so, I can’t stay in this relationship much longer. It will drive me insane but Shelby won’t let me leave.
Hope this gets better - Zack

Date: 23/12/16
Dear Diary,
It took me like a month but I finally convinced Shelby to let me go and see my family. In return, I get stabbed in the leg with no chance of medical treatment or I’m dead.
I think I’m gonna stay at my parents’ for a week and talk about moving in then finding my own place. The cottage may be a family home but I don’t give a fuck, I’m too scared to kick Shelby out and I would want to make sure she had somewhere to go. I still love her, I have no idea why.
Hope things get better - Zack.

Date: 02/01/17
Dear Diary,
I’m in so much physical pain and it hurts to write this. My plan to move out got busted and got me beat the fuck up with a fucking baseball bat, the worst part is I was too cowardly to defend myself. I couldn’t bear the thought of how Shelby would retaliate if I hit her or blocked her. This bitch needs to go to the psych ward.
I think I find a coping mechanism, ecstasy and I think the dude I bumped into knows a dude who sells weed. Hopefully it will be something to help me.
Hope things get better - Zack

Date: 24/04/17
Dear new diary,
Shelby found the first diary, burned that and my chest. She seems to be getting worse and I have no idea why.
Hope things get better - Zack

Date: 09/06/17
Dear Dairy,
I’m high out of my face but I’ll try to write this. I think Shelby might be changing but I don’t know if it’s for the worse. I want to know what goes through her head, why would she wanna hurt me.
Hope things get better - Zack

Date: 01/08/17
Dear Diary,
My therapist has gone ‘missing’ and I’m fucking terrified. Who would want to do this? Is it against her?… or me? But then again could be both of us. Did Shelby find out about us… I sure fucking hope not.
I might ask Shelby about this but I’m 100% it won’t end well
Hope the cops find her - Zack

Date: 23/08/17
(**Note: The entry appears to start with Dear Diary but this is only theorised. Judging by the blood marks on the page, Shelby killed Zack whilst he was writing the entry)

Abra’s Issues: Narrative doesn’t flow well still, domestic violence dealt with very poorly, therapists can’t date clients
