Door to SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Keter Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The building in which SCP-XXXX is located has been purchased by the Foundation, and has been designated Provisional Site-383.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a room in the basement of an abandoned apartment building. The only entrance into SCP-XXXX is a large metal door. SCP-XXXX is completely empty, but an odor of decaying flesh is consistently present, which has attracted a large number of flies and other insects.

Whenever a single individual enters SCP-XXXX, the door will automatically shut and cannot be opened for the duration of the subject's stay. Subjects who enter SCP-XXXX will be forcibly ejected from the room some time later, typically dead. Post-event subjects universally exhibit signs of severe blunt force trauma to the head and torso, most often rendering the subject unrecognizable. The source of these attacks have yet to be determined, as all recording equipment taken into SCP-XXXX by the subjects has been lost or destroyed.

Additionally, all individuals ejected from SCP-XXXX carry a note on their person, with varying contents.

Testing Log: The following is a log of tests conducted on SCP-XXXX.

Subject/Notes Results Message
D-8929; former car salesman, raised in northern Colorado, found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder. Subject was ejected from SCP-XXXX eight hours later. Portions of subject's head and torso remained intact, but the skin and flesh on the front of his face had been almost entirely severed. A typical deplorable. Nonetheless, justice will be served to you.
D-7392; lumberjack, raised in Northern Canada, found guilty of eight counts of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder. Subject survived the encounter after two hours, albeit in critical condition. Subject's face was still barely recognizable, but had clearly been subject to constant blunt force trauma, along with the torso. Subject is currently in a vegetative state. You should consider yourself lucky; most of you don't leave here alive, but you're less of a monster than most others.
D-3947; exterminator, raised in central Arizona, found guilty of four counts of first-degree murder. After thirty-three hours, a large quantity of bone and viscera was ejected from SCP-XXXX. Post-event analysis indicates that the ejecta was a biological match to the DNA pattern in the subject's file. We have truly lost faith in your kind.

Addendum XXXX.1: Following the final test, reports of murders consistent with the effects of SCP-XXXX began to disseminate. Involved individuals were swiftly amnesticized, and an investigation into the cause of SCP-XXXX's spread has been approved. SCP-XXXX's classification has been updated to Keter.

Addendum XXXX.2: Shortly after SCP-XXXX's effects began to spread, Researcher Jameson requested that he be allowed to enter SCP-XXXX to conduct an interview, on the basis that he has no criminal record, nor is he known for any particularly egregious moral offenses.

Jameson entered SCP-XXXX, and after seven hours, was ejected from the room. The following note was found on his corpse:

Your attempts at negotiation are almost more offensive than your crimes, if only that it shows complete ignorance to such issues. You only continue to prove the disgusting and murderous nature of humanity.

Addendum XXXX.3: As SCP-XXXX is apparently reacting to humanity's unknown "murders," it was deemed necessary to attempt testing with someone of a completely pacifist ideology. After extensive outreach, a volunteer was found that was willing to be tested with SCP-XXXX1. Subject declared himself a practitioner of Jainist faith, which forbids the voluntary killing or harming of any creatures, on any scale. Subject was instructed to enter SCP-XXXX and negotiate with any relevant entities.

Subject emerged almost immediately from SCP-XXXX, with the following note in his hand:

Thank you, stranger. It has been a long time since we have encountered someone such as you. Most others are subject to our rightful vengeance, but we are happy that you have lived such a virtuous life, where even the most insignificant creatures are treasured by you.

We will cease our attacks, allowing you to spread our mission with others. But be warned: we have communicated our cessation with our brothers and sisters, but if we find the next person to enter this chamber to be guilty, we will consider your mission a failure, and will release our full force across the human race. Be a beacon unto others of your kind, and do not fail.

We offer you our sincerest gratitude, and hope you continue to show mercy and love towards everyone, including and especially our kind.

Immediately following the test, all SCP-XXXX-related attacks ceased, and it has been reclassified as Safe. Further testing is forbidden.
