Item #: SCP-XXX

Object Class: Safe

Addendum: Request by Dr. Elliot to classify as Euclid after Incident-XXX-AP Reclassification denied.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXX is to be kept on Site 19 in a standard containment locker. Access to the SCP can be admitted to any level 2 personnel or higher for testing and research purposes only. Personnel handling SCP-XXX are required to wear standard biohazard equipment and gear.

Description: SCP-XXX is a 203 x 305 mm brown leather bound notebook. When closed, the SCP holds no anomalous properties and appears to have 105 pieces of paper between it's two covers. When shut it exhibits no signs of use or possible contents

When opened the amount of pages in SCP-XXX will change depending on how many are needed for the information given. In every instance SCP-XXX is opened, a leaf will appear on designated Side 1 of Page 1. This leaf cannot be removed from Page 1, and it is currently unclear how it is binded to the page. The species of leaf will change each time the SCP-XXX reopened.

Species exhibited by SCP-XXX include:

  • Quercus (Common Name: Oak Tree) Leaf
  • Tetrapanax Papyrifer (Common Name: Rice-Paper Plant) Leaf
  • Toxicodendron Radicans (Common Name: Poison Ivy) Leaf
  • Leucanthemum Vulgare (Common Name: Oxeye Daisy) Leaf
  • Ginkgo Biloba (Common Name: Ginko Tree) Leaf
  • Dendrocnide Moroides (Common Name: Gympie Gympie) Leaf

Note from Dr. Elliot:
The potential botanical research that could be SCP is amazing. We've gotten hundreds of results already and I'm sure we haven't even scratched the surface!

Possible patterns for displaying these leaves is currently being researched. Leaves larger than the page extend off the page borders. Leaves have never extended off the page from the left side, towards the spine, presumably to prevent the leaf from folding.

Subsequent pages have hand written notes and occasional scrawled depictions of the species' entirety. Notes aim to give facts and information on the species. Occasionally, notes will contain personalized comments not relating to fact, such as:

  • I like this one's color.
  • I know you'd like the smell of it's flower.

The only note constant upon each reopening of SCP-XXX is on Side 2 of Cover 1 which reads:

  • l'm sorry I couldn't get you that garden, but I hope you'll like this instead. With Love, Dad

When shut SCP-XXX reverts back to it's original state of 150 pages. Leaves were too large for Page and extended beyond it are pulled back into the book in the direction of the spine, and then disappear completely.

The following are incidents considered harmful and dangerous or have affected the foundation's understanding of the SCP:

A sample from Williamsonia Gigas and notes on the species appeared in SCP-XXX. This particularly noteworthy as Williamsonia Gigas went extinct in the Cretaceous period.

Researcher [REDACTED] was asked to open SCP-XXX. Upon doing so, Researcher [REDACTED] came into contact with a Tetrapanax Papyrifer (Rice-Paper Plant) leaf. The researcher subsequently went into anaphylactic shock and died shortly after exposure.
Notes: SCP-XXX had never posed a considerable threat before Incident-XXX-AP. Though the request for reclassification (Euclid) was denied under the argument that the SCP is understood well enough to be safely contained, the request to add mandatory biohazard equipment to testing procedures has been approved.

When opened SCP-XXX displayed an unknown species and 92 pages worth of information pertaining to it. SCP-XXX refers to the species as [REDACTED].
Notes: Using the information given by SCP-XXX investigations to find the species in the wild are currently underway.

Researchers opened SCP-XXX to find a leaf from Toxicodendron Radicans (Poison Ivy). A Class-D personnel was brought into the testing area and was requested to make contact with the leaf. Approximately 6 days later, a rash typical of poison ivy exposure appeared. In this time the book remained open. After approximately 3 days the book was closed. At the same time Class-D personnel reported that his rash had disappeared completely as if "it had never been there at all"

Addendum: SCP-XXX was recovered in the home of David G█████ along with several other SCPs in[REDACTED], Florida. Records show he lived at this address alone and only has one living relative, a brother, who lives in Seattle, Washington. When interviewed, his brother claimed he lost contact with his brother 16 years earlier. Investigation into the character and disappearance of David G█████ is under way. Theories of who the SCP was intended for are also currently being looked into, specifically with a connection to SCP [REDACTED].
