Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All SCP-XXXX are to be contained within a standard containment cell, located 15 kilometers off of site-19. No paper or paper products are allowed within 10 kilometers of SCP-XXXX, unless testing is approved by Dr. Emily. Bi-daily checks should be made to confirm that all instances of SCP-XXXX are accounted for. In the event that any SCP-XXXX disappear from containment, all personnel on site-19 are to be alerted, and form into search parties of no less than 3 persons until the SCP-XXXX has been successfully re-contained.

If any unauthorized use of SCP-XXXX occurs, an immediate report is to be given to Dr. Emily, and a level 3 staff member. If the drawing made using SCP-XXXX depicts a possible future event, and is deemed too dangerous, the target of the prediction is to be brought to an off site, heavily reinforced holding cell, and be terminated remotely. The new SCP-XXXX is to be extracted from the target's corpse, and the cell should be cleaned and repaired for further use.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a pack of 16 differently colored Crayola Crayons, designated SCP-XXXX-1 through SCP-XXXX-16. SCP-XXXX is made of a semi-organic wax, containing varying amounts of DNA, and possess a regenerative ability, which can completely regrow all mass lost, including the wrapper, as long as at least 5% of the original mass remains intact. If an SCP-XXXX is ever completely destroyed, a new instance of the same color will begin to grow within the stomach of a nearby human host.1 The growth process is largely harmless, and most targets won't take notice until the SCP-XXXX has become fully grown,2 at which point, the target will experience stomach pains until they vomit, letting the SCP-XXXX out. In the event that multiple SCP-XXXXs of the same color exist at one time (see test-XXXX-35), the reproductive effect will only occur if the last SCP-XXXX of that color is destroyed.

SCP-XXXX have a memetic quality, as when one is placed near paper (the type, color, composition, etc. of the paper does not matter, as long as it has not previously been drawn on by an SCP-XXXX), the first human to observe it will become unaware of its anomalous properties, regardless of prior briefing, and be compelled to draw on the paper using the SCP-XXXX. While drawing, the user enters a light trance-like state, and, while still aware of their surroundings, seem unable to control what they are drawing. The memetic effects are not strong, and only last until the picture is complete, or the user loses contact with the SCP-XXXX; any force used to remove the object from the user's grip, or even the user becoming distracted and putting the object down will break the memetic effect until the object is brought into the vicinity of fresh paper.

If completed, the picture drawn using SCP-XXXX will usually be a crude, child-like drawing3 depicting an event from the user's past, or relatively near future. Despite the low drawing quality, the user will be able to accurately describe any scene drawn, citing great detail about a future event, or vividly recalling a past memory. Predictions created by SCP-XXXX are extremely accurate, and will come true unless concise action is taken against it.

SCP-XXXX was recovered on November 12th, 20██, after reports were made of a man named H█████ L███ being killed in his apartment by a "wax bomb." Investigation by a local foundation agent found signs of an intruder, though no valuables appeared to be missing. H█████'s corpse was found buried under a large pile of wax inside his bathroom, with SCP-XXXX lying on top. SCP-XXXX's anomalous features were discovered when the agent took out his notepad to make observations on the scene. Upon initial recovery, testing discovered that all instances of SCP-XXXX contained the DNA of an unknown species, with the exception of SCP-XXXX-7, which contained H█████'s DNA.
