SCP-XXXX when lit.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a remote locker accessible to Level 2 Personnel. Lighting SCP-XXXX is prohibited unless for research purposes.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a decorated candle stick, made of Mm-25, holding a wax wick. The wick on SCP-XXXX is an extension.

When lit, the wick on SCP-XXXX will eventually undergo complete physical change. Afterwards, the subject responsible for lighting SCP-XXXX enters a suggestible state. SCP-XXXX then emits brainwaves corresponding to its subject. Now, he/she attempts to retrieve a successor of the preceding wick to relight SCP-XXXX. Subjects become dormant after relighting SCP-XXXX until the following wick melts again, or another entity extinguishes SCP-XXXX. Subjects under the effects of SCP-XXXX do not cease attempts to relight it.

Interrogating subjects under the effects of SCP-XXXX has proven useless. They behave nearly identical to the subconscious they were beforehand. Subjects being suggested by SCP-XXXX have been classified as, "SCP-XXXX-2."

SCP-XXXX-2 effortlessly escapes from SCP-XXXX’s effects once it is extinguished by another entity. Former SCP-XXXX-2 suffer high levels of stress, insomnia, and paranoia; see Addendum XXXX-A for further details. Their side effects wear off after 3-5 days. Former SCP-XXXX-2 do not recall any consciousness throughout the duration of their state.

Prior to Addendum XXXX-A, it is likely that SCP-XXXX was crafted in the 14th century. It was recognized, formerly, to suggest SCP-XXXX-2 to carry out suicide until, likely, the 19th Century. SCP-XXXX-2, until the 19th Century, received flashbacks of previous SCP-XXXX-2 enacting suicide. That is what likely what prompts the side effects. SCP-XXXX’s logic for its change of methods has yet to be determined.

Prior to Addendum XXXX-D, SCP-XXXX has been classified as a sapient object.

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was located and recovered from a basement in ███████ ███████, a daycare inside of ███████, US, ██-██-2003. It was tracked prior to a supervisor making calls to a local medical department about a minor presumably going under the effects of SCP-XXXX from time to time. SCP-XXXX was relocated to Site-73 for containment and research. SCP-XXXX’s reasoning for ending up in that basement is unkown.
