Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The building containing SCP-XXXX is to be quarantined under the ruse of a biological hazard. Security cameras are to be placed within view of all 3 entrances, and any unauthorized personnel seen entering the premises are to be captured and issued class C amnestics.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a single bedroom apartment in ████████████, Washington. The room is a total of 233 Sq. M, and is fully furnished. The fridge is always fully stocked with a random assortment of foods that seem to be tailored to the preference of the current resident. Theoretically, this is so that the resident, hereby known as SCP-XXXX-1, will be enticed to remain within SCP-XXXX. When SCP-XXXX-1 stays within SCP-XXXX for a total of 24 hours, SCP-XXXX will become active.

While active SCP-XXXX-1 will be unable to make contact with the outside world. this includes, audio, radio, and visual. From the perspective of SCP-XXXX-1, all windows in the apartment appear black. Individuals outside of SCP-XXXX will perceive the windows as having the curtains drawn. If someone from the outside attempts to open the door, SCP-XXXX will return to it's inactive state.

Should an attempt be made to exit SCP-XXXX using the door, a completely black entity, hereby known as SCP-XXXX-2, will manifest in the doorway. When SCP-XXXX-2 is encountered for the first time, it will intimidate SCP-XXXX-1 into retreating back into the room. Should a second attempt be made within 24 hours SCP-XXXX will enter the room, and physically assault SCP-XXXX-1 until they either expire, become unconscious, or cease moving. SCP-XXXX-2 will then exit through the front door.

Should a 3rd attempt be made, SCP-XXXX-2 will not manifest and SCP-XXXX-1 will be allowed to exit SCP-XXXX. However, this does not result in a return to normal space. Instead SCP-XXXX-1 will be aloud to explore the void around SCP-XXXX. But if an attempt is made to return to SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX-2 will manifest within SCP-XXXX and stare at SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 will the proceed to [REDACTED].

Interview Log SCP-XXXX-1
Interviewed: Mr. James ████████
Interviewer: Dr. ██████
Forward: Mr.████████ had recently been discovered in the corner of SCP-XXXX cowering in fear with several large wounds. When he reported to the authorities, they labeled him as mentally ill.

<Begin Log>
Dr.██████: Can you tell us what happened?
Mr.████████: Well, I had just moved into ████████████ and found a large apartment for really cheap. Should have been the first warning.
Dr.██████: Please, continue.
Mr.████████: When i got there, I noticed that this place was way to good for the price they were offering, and on top of that, they even stocked the fridge with Bud Light too!
Dr.██████: Did it ever occur to you why the apartment was so cheap?
Mr.████████: Um, no sir. Not once.
Dr.██████: Alright. Continue.
Mr.████████: After getting settled in, I started drinking. After about 12 cans or so, I hit the hay. When I woke up, I noticed it was still dark out. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but when I looked out the window the whole world had gone black! Then I ran to the door to see if it was true, but then there was some sort of figure in the doorway.
Mr.████████ shudders, visibly disturbed.
Dr.██████: Could you describe the figure?
Mr.████████: Yeah, uhh… it was about 8ft tall, long sorta stringy lookin' arms and legs, and was all black. If it weren't for the lights, you wouldn't be able to see him at all.
Dr.██████: Thank you. Could you tell us what happened next?
Mr.████████: Of Course. So after I opened the door, this thing appeared outta nowhere! He started swinging his arms up, like he was angry or somethin'. I backed into the corner and he just looked, nodded and left.
Dr.██████: That doesn't explain your injuries.
Mr.████████: I'm gettin to that! So, after he left I got real spooked. I decided to escape from the window instead, but when I did that, that….thing appeared again…
Dr.██████: Mr.████████?
Mr.████████: May I be excused?
Dr.██████: Of course, that's enough information.

Closing Statement:
After the interview, all non-foundation personel involved were given amnestics and Mr.████████ was put into a new apartment.

Experiment Log-XXXX-1
D-9034, a caucasian male age 36
D-9034 has be told to stay inside SCP-XXXX for 3 weeks, but has not been told of its properties. D-9034 is given a video camera, a calendar, and 8 cans of tomato soup.
When the door is opened, D-9034 can be seen dead on the floor. Autopsy shows that the brain was removed, though the body showed no signs of physical damage. The calendar has only been marked for 1 of the 3 weeks he was supposed to be in there. It is presumed this is when D-9034 expired. None of the cans of tomato soup have been touched, and even though the fridge should have been out of food, it's still full. The camera is still filming from the corner of the room. Footage can be found under "Video Log SCP-XXXX-1"

Video Log SCP-XXXX-1
<Begin Log>
D-9034 can be seen looking into the camera.
D-9034: Is this thing on? I'm just going to leave you here.
D-9034 then sets the camera in the corner and heads to the fridge.
D-9034: Hey! How did they know I liked 2%?
D-9034 then begins to prepare a meal. During the process, D-9034 begins talking to himself.
D-9034: I could have sworn that these guys only contained dangerous stuff, though I should complain. After all I could have ended up with—-
D-9034 continues this for several hours still questioning what the anomaly could be.
The rest of the day is uneventful.
When D-9034 wakes, he opens the blinds and backs away in shock.
D-9034: But… the world was there yesterday… they must be trying tho mess with me! Well I'll go give those eggheads a piece of my mind!
D-9034 goes to open the door. Once he does SCP-XXXX-2 is standing there. D-9034 is alarmed and backs away from SCP-XXXX-2, who is flailing its arms as if it were angry. It gives one last look to D-9034, who is hiding behind the couch. SCP-XXXX-2 exits and closes the door behind him.
D-9034 composes himself and starts pacing around the room.
D-9034: Ok, so the world turned black, I have limited food, and a shadow demon is playing bouncer on my front doorstep. Lovely. Ok, I'll just stay inside then…
D-9034 goes into the bedroom, and returns to make breakfast.
D-9034: Hey! When did we get eggs?
D-9034 pauses for a moment and starts pacing again. He pauses and looks at the fridge, he then proceeds to start pulling out all of the food from the fridge and closes it.
D-9034: If I'm right about this…
D-9034 whispers under his breath before opening the fridge, he appears elated as he pulls a cake from the fridge.
D-9034: IT WORKED!!!
D-9034 sits on the couch and consumes the whole cake before telling himself how easy these 3 weeks will be.
The next few days are uneventful, except for a few odd appearances of SCP-XXXX-2 in windows and doorways, which D-9034 seems to be totally ignorant of. On day 7 however, when D-9034 was going to sleep, SCP-XXXX-2 manifested in the room. I seemed larger then when it first appeared. It proceeded to grab D-9034 and [DATA EXPUNGED]
