Item #: XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Given the prominence and the relatively minor effects of SCP-XXXX, containment of SCP-XXXX is limited to suppression of the knowledge of SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects. After a the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX are to be given Class A amnestics and released into the general population.

Item #: XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX has been fenced off from the public under the guise of a localized chemical spill, and is guarded by security personnel. Any trespassers onto SCP-XXXX are to be interrogated and then dosed with Class-A amnestics. D-Class personnel brought into SCP-XXXX must first listen to audiobooks of Hart's Horne series, as this has proven to be the quickest form of introduction to the series. Any increase in the size of SCP-XXXX is to be immediately reported to the research supervisor for SCP-XXXX, who is currently Dr. Wilbury.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the former retirement home "Fletcher Woods Home" in ███████, CA the former city of ███████, CA. Upon entering SCP-XXXX, subjects develop an anomalous disorder, referred to for the rest of this document as SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-1 only affects the right eye, and physically leaves it unchanged; however, subjects progressively lose their ability to see through it. Subjects typically achieve full blindness in their right eye in 1-2 weeks.

Approximately one day after reaching this stage, subjects are able to dimly see vague outlines of structures through their right eye, designated SCP-XXXX-2. Coordination typically deteriorates much faster than before at this point, though this is believed to be a nonanomalous side effect of receiving different stimuli to both the left and right eyes. As SCP-XXXX-1 develops, the vision of SCP-XXXX-2 becomes clearer and more detailed, revealing a bird's eye view of some kind of city (for a full description, see Document SCP-XXXX-a). SCP-XXXX-1 ceases to progress after approximately one month, although its effects are permanent.

If subjects have previously read or listened to the Hart's Horne series by whatever means, an additional cognitohazardous effect becomes apparent after the conclusion of SCP-XXXX-1's progression. Subjects will become obsessed with SCP-XXXX-2, remarking on its apparent beauty. They will then proceed to write fanfiction set in SCP-XXXX-2 involving the main characters of the Hart's Horne series. These works are extremely long, and while they often have varied beginnings, eventually follow the same narrative; the antagonists of the series, who had been killed in the final book, is resurrected and attempts to establish a stronghold in SCP-XXXX-2, before being thwarted by the protagonists (who are the protagonists of the previous series, as well as a character identified as "Phil", typically introduced midway through the fanfiction). Subjects are unable to complete the fanfiction

Discovery: SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties were discovered after reports of simultaneous cataracts developing among the patients and staff of the then active retirement community. From interviews and inference from the rate of growth of SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties appear to have begun shortly after the death of Mr. Holloway Helkin (born Henry Williamson), who had gone into cardiac arrest. Mr. Helkin was a late patient of SCP-XXXX and a well-known author who wrote the popular but critically reviled Hart's Horne series of fantasy novels. Mr. Helkin was suffering from a cataract in his right eye upon his death and had just started on a new installation of the series, Freezing Sun, after a long hiatus. Mr. Helkin's draft of Freezing Sun was accidentally destroyed some time after his death by custodial staff; however, Foundation personnel were able to recover Mr. Helkin's journal. Pertinent entries are below.

Interviews with Mr. Helkin's grandson Phil Bouchart (POI-XXXX) have corroborated many of the details given in Mr. Helkin's journal. POI-XXXX was amnestized and has shown no evidence of further anomalous activity. Investigation into Mr. Helkin and the Hart's Horne series is currently ongoing.

Addendum XXXX-a: Below is the interview log of D-61749, who had 95% of her right eye's lens covered by SCP-XXXX-1 at the time of the interview.

Interviewed: D-61749

Interviewer: Dr. █████

Foreword: Before this interview, there had been several attempts to get details from D-61749 about SCP-XXXX-2, which had failed given the relative lack of progression of SCP-XXXX-1. This was the final attempt.

<Begin Log, ██:██:██>

Dr. █████: Hello, D-61749. How are you feeling?

D-61749: Actually, I wanted to know about this cataract thing. You're going to get rid of it, right? After all the tests and stuff?

Dr. █████: Of course we will D-61749. We're currently doing everything in our power to cure your condition. Are you able to see SCP-XXXX-2 in more detail this time?

D-61749: Yeah, sure. Let me just, uh, concentrate, I guess.

(D-61749 closes her left eye and concentrates.)

D-61749: Alright, uh…it's a city. I think. The buildings look…thin?

Dr. █████: Could you clarify?

D-61749: They don't look like they're very real. They look like…like they're made of cardboard, or something. I…I can't really describe them otherwise, for some reason.

Dr. █████: I see. Do you see anything else?

D-61749: Uh, yeah. The sun is made of golden fire and burning smoke, and the skies are
umber and bronzed.

(D-61749 appears unaware of any unusual behavior on her part.)

D-61749: There's a person roaming the street. Tall and elegant, but with a smirk on their face. (shakes head confusedly) Looks like, uh, Charlie? Charlie Goldman.2 What are they doing there? Haven't seen them since…two weeks ago, or something. Weren't they —

Dr. █████: Please focus on the topic at hand, D-61749. Do you see anybody else?

D-61749: Uh…no, Doctor. Other than Charlie and the thronging faceless mass of unwashed plebeians, I can't see anybody else.

Dr. █████: Could you describe this crowd, please?

D-61749: Um…there isn't a crowd, Doctor. Just Charlie.

Dr. █████: D-61749, you just claimed there was such a crowd.

D-61749: No…no I didn't, doctor. Doctor, what's going on? I don't-

Dr. █████: Fogginess is a common side effect of the medication you're on, D-61749.3 You needn't worry. Could you describe D-71235's behavior? Do they appear agitated, or confused?

D-61749: To the casual layman's eye they might be, but Charlie Goldman,
better known as Horne Whitehood4, was the single most cruelly dastardous being in the Groblands.

(D-61749 appears disconcerted. Her feet have started to dissolve.)

D-61749: I, uh, didn't mean to say that, Dr. █████. I can't really make out their expression, but they don't really look like they're walking anywhere in particular.

Dr. █████: That's fine, D-61749. What else do you see?

(D-61749 pauses for 2 seconds. She appears concerned. At this point, her entire lower body has dissolved, though D-61749 appears not to have noticed this.)

D-61749: (distressed) Doctor, I can't see it anymore. That was… that was all there is.

Dr. █████: What do you mean?

D-61749: I can't say anymore. He didn't write enough.

Dr. █████: Do you mean Mr. Helkin? Please clarify, D-61749.

D-61749: (unresponsive) He didn't write enough, there isn't anymore. The city's empty and it needs words.
Dr. █████: D-61749, please -

D-61749: But I can't see so I can't give. It aches. It wants more. It's so cold.

(At this point, D-61749's head has dissolved entirely, leaving only her eyes.)

D-61749: He's cold.

D-61749 fully dissolves and stops vocalizing. Interview terminated.

Closing Statement: Further attempts with D-class personnel to obtain a description of SCP-XXXX-2 have yielded similar results.
