UncannyClown276 Sandbox

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard Safe Object Containment Locker at Site-25.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a standard cardboard shoe box. The words "COMPLIMENT BOX" are written in black marker on the lid of SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX displays no anomalous properties.

SCP-XXXX contains ten slips of paper, collectively designated SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX instances have compliments written on them. If an SCP-XXXX-1 instance is removed from SCP-XXXX and not returned within 24 hours or destroyed, a new SCP-XXXX-1 instance will appear in its place.

If an SCP-XXXX-1 instance is removed from SCP-XXXX and read by a human subject, the subject will begin to feel insecure about the aspect of themselves that was complimented. This insecurity will escalate until the subject either refuses contact with other humans, or makes an attempt to remove or alter the aspect of themselves that was complimented. This process can be reversed by either removing or destroying the SCP-XXXX-1 instance. After being removed from the SCP-XXXX-1 instance that was read, the human subject will avoid contact with SCP-XXXX by all means necessary. If the human subject is forced into contact with SCP-XXXX, they will attempt to create as much distance between themselves and SCP-XXXX as possible. Once the SCP-XXXX-1 instance is separated from the subject who read it, it ceases all anomalous properties, and can be safely disposed of.

Testing Log:

Subject: D-XXXX/1

Procedure: D-XXXX/1 was instructed to remove an SCP-XXXX-1 instance from SCP-XXXX, read it, and remain in the presence of SCP-XXXX until instructed otherwise.

Results: D-XXXX/1 removed an SCP-XXXX-1 instance and read it. Immediately after doing so, D-XXXX/1 refused to make eye contact with nearby personnel, turning her head in the opposite direction whenever eye contact was attempted. Approximately 30 minutes into the test, D-XXXX/1 began covering her eyes with her hands, claiming that no one should have to see them. Approximately 1 hour into the test, D-XXXX/1 attempted to gouge out her eyes, and had to be restrained by security personnel. The SCP-XXXX-1 instance, which was recovered from D-XXXX/1, read "You have beautiful eyes." The instance displayed no anomalous properties and was incinerated.

Notes: D-XXXX/1 was killed when she attempted to assault security personnel who passed SCP-XXXX's containment locker while escorting her to another location.

Subject: D-XXXX/2

Procedure: D-XXXX/2 was instructed to remove an SCP-XXXX-1 instance from SCP-XXXX and read it. D-XXXX/2 was then restrained by security personnel for the remainder of the test.

Results: D-XXXX/2 removed an SCP-XXXX-1 instance, read it, and was then restrained by security personnel. D-XXXX/2 attempted to conceal his face to the best of his ability, and showed extreme distress when security personnel were still able to view it. Approximately 5 minutes into the test, D-XXXX/2 began to struggle against the security personnel. D-XXXX/2 continued to struggle while becoming increasingly distressed for approximately 10 minutes before the test was ended prematurely, as it was deemed to be unnecessarily cruel. The SCP-XXXX-1 instance, which was recovered from D-XXXX/2 following the conclusion of the test, read "I like your face." The instance displayed no anomalous properties and was incinerated.

Notes: The researcher who conducted this test was reprimanded following its conclusion, and was prohibited from conducting tests involving SCP-XXXX in the future.

Subject: D-XXXX/3

Procedure: D-XXXX/3 was instructed to remove an SCP-XXXX-1 instance from SCP-XXXX and read it. D-XXXX/3 was then allowed to roam a designated area within Site-25 while being supervised by security personnel.

Results: D-XXXX/3 removed an SCP-XXXX-1 instance, read it, and immediately began roaming the designated area. D-XXXX/3 attempted to hide behind various objects such as trash cans to prevent security personnel from being able to view her, and showed distress when her attempts failed. Following this, she attempted to run from security personnel, and was restrained and returned to the designated area. D-XXXX/3 then entered Site-25's bathroom, and attempted to induce vomiting, at which point the test was immediately ended. The SCP-XXXX-1 instance, which was recovered from D-XXXX/3, read "You have an excellent body. Have you been losing weight?" The instance displayed no anomalous properties and was incinerated.

Addendum: On 29/██/██, all SCP-XXXX-1 instances vanished from SCP-XXXX, and were replaced with a single note. The note read:

To all of those I have hurt:

I'm sorry.

I just wanted to help people feel better about themselves, but in the end I failed to do so at every turn. In fact, I did the opposite. All these people went from perfectly normal to insecure wrecks in hours all because of me. I should never have even tried. I'm going to vanish and never come back.

I'm sorry for everything I've done.

The note displayed no anomalous properties and has been moved to Site-25's non-anomalous object storage. SCP-XXXX-1 instances have ceased appearing in SCP-XXXX, and it has been reclassified as neutralized.
