rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-3132

Object Class: Safe

Updated Special Containment Procedures: As of DATE Site-208 has been placed under strict Level W4 Quarantine. All personnel transfers between Site-208 and all other Sites are prohibited. All delivery of supplies is to be conducted by unmanned vehicles. No phone contact is to be made between any Site-208 personnel and the outside world.

All personnel stationed at this site are to be reclassified as E-class personnel and allowed to continue their duties as normal, with all wages and benefits increased by two stages as compensation.

Description: SCP-3132 is a plaster replica of a human vertebra. SCP-3132 has no identifying marks save for a crude inscription reading "Made in China". SCP-3132 exhibits several anomalous effects on humans in its vicinity, proceeding in several stages:

Stage 1: When a human is within 2.3 m of SCP-3132, they will begin to experience mild auditory hallucinations. Subjects describe the sounds as similar to those made when a joint is popped. The hallucinations immediately cease if the subject leaves the 2.3 m radius. This stage lasts ten to forty minutes.

Stage 2: Subjects within range of SCP-3132 after Stage 1 ends begin to experience major discomfort in their spinal joints. Most subjects will attempt to pop their back joints; if successful, subjects report significant relief. The discomfort ends after approximately one hour, whether the subject pops their back successfully or not.

Stage 3: If the subject successfully pops their back joints during Stage 2, they proceed to this stage. During this stage, only the subject's spinal joints are able to pop; other joints will not pop no matter how they are pulled. Of note is that vertebrae will only pop in sequence: either up from the L4-L5 joint if the subject turns their torso clockwise, or down from the C1-C2 joint if counterclockwise.

When popped from the top down, the vertebral joints will emit a series of pops that correspond to a descending B major scale. These sounds have an average volume of 65 dB. When popped from the bottom up, the joints will instead emit a series of sounds corresponding to an ascending D minor scale at 80 dB.

Any human who hears either of these sounds other than the person who generated them enters Stage 3 permanently and is hereafter designated SCP-3132-1. Furthermore, all sounds generated from the spinal joints of an SCP-3132-1 instance retain the ability to transform any listeners of the sound into additional SCP-3132-1 instances.

Test #: 3132-29
Subject(s): D-19060 and D-28888


(D-19060 and D-28888 are restrained to prevent movement of their backs. To avoid spread of SCP-3132, the subjects are inside a soundproofed room. Their comments are relayed to Dr. Juarez through a text-to-speech device.)

D-19060: Another day, another test. What's on the menu today?

Dr. Juarez: Please stand by. In a few minutes we'll release you and move on to the next step. You'll be cracking your backs in various patterns into the microphones placed around the chamber.

D-28888: Awesome. Hey, later on we should test with like, five people and see if we can't get a band started.

D-19060: Crazy Eights, that's the best idea you've had all week. Can we get that written down, somewhere?

Dr. Juarez: You guys know I'm not in charge of coming up with these tests. I'll be sure to mention it to my supervisor, though.

D-19060: Woo!

Dr. Juarez: Releasing restraints. D-19060, please step onto the red marked spot. D-28888, the blue spot, and be sure to face each other.

The D-class proceed to the designated spots.

D-19060: Roger that.

D-28888: There.

Dr. Juarez: Excellent. Now, when the light flashes, D-19060 will twist counter-clockwise and D-28888 will twist clockwise.

Dr. Juarez checks several monitors and pushes a button to trigger the light. The D-class both twist as instructed, and a sound is produced. Later analysis shows that this sound was much louder than would be expected from normal constructive interference.

Dr. Juarez: Perfect. D-28888, move to the green spot and face away from 19060. 19060, please remain in the exact same position. When the light flashes, you will both turn counterclockwise.

Both D-class nod. Dr. Juarez pushes the button again, and the D-class twist as instructed. The sound is produced as expected, with even greater distortion.

Dr. Juarez: Hmm. Dr. Juarez writes in his notebook. I think we'll do one last test, and then that'll be it for today.

D-28888 high-fives D-19060.

Dr. Juarez: Alright. 28888, to the yellow spot. 19060, to the gray dot. On my mark, you will both twist clockwise.

Dr. Juarez pushes the button, and his pen falls to the floor. The D-class begin to twist as Dr. Juarez bends down to retrieve his pen. As he bends, his back pops unexpectedly, within range of the microphone. At this point a large shockwave emanates from between D-19060 and D-28888, partially destroying the walls of the testing chamber and most of the equipment.

<Closing Statement> Dr. Juarez and the two D-class were injured and suffered partial hearing loss, but survived. While most of the recording devices were destroyed by the blast, analysis from the two that survived managed to make out a sound emanating from the epicenter. As of the most recent analysis, the sound was similar to a voice saying the words "Oh, that's nice". More importantly, the shockwave was heard by a large number of site personnel, and has turned out to carry SCP-3132's infectious properties as well. - Site-208 Director Villasana

OK, here's how we're gonna do this. 1) ramp it up 2) FFY
