Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All comments on SCP-XXXX-01 videos are to be logged in Foundation database XXXX-K-47. IP addresses of commentariat are to be logged in a similar fashion, with internet activities remotely monitored for indicators of potential SCP-XXXX-02 infection. As of 18/09/2021, the above measures are to apply to all viewers of SCP-XXXX-01 content.

Upon location by Foundation web-crawlers, instances of SCP-XXXX-01 are to be taken down by the use of multiple YouTube DCMA requests.

Any monitored civilians found to exhibit more than 40% of at-risk behaviors for SCP-XXXX-02 infection are to have internet service to their residence cut off. If questioned, Foundation personnel, masquerading as ISP employees, are to make vague claims of "piracy complaints" as a reason for the cessation of internet access. Personnel are to discourage attempts to remedy the situation by providing unhelpful information, putting on hold, and repeatedly re-asking questions.

Description: SCP-XXXX-01 is an account, or "channel" on the popular video-sharing website YouTube, entitled "shadowhands"1. Attempts to remove SCP-XXXX-01 via copyright takedowns have been only temporarily successful, with complete video content, including comments, typically being re-uploaded within 12 hours.

Of the videos posted on SCP-XXXX-012, all but three are compilations of ambient, instrumental hip-hop, and vaporwave genres34, set over a lightly-distorted still image of unknown films and animated programs. Viewers of SCP-XXXX-01 will identify the background image as belonging to a television program that was of great importance to them during their childhood5. In isolation, neither backgrounds nor audio tracks on SCP-XXXX-01 videos do not appear to have any anomalous properties.

Repeated exposure to SCP-XXXX-01 videos leads to an increase in the likelihood of contact with SCP-XXXX-02 instances. After at least two months of viewing 98% of victims have viewed SCP-XXXX-01 at least thirty times prior to interaction with SCP-XXXX-02, while 90% have commented on a SCP-XXXX-01 video at least once.

SCP-XXXX-02 is the collective designation a species of humanoid entities capable of manipulating and feeding on human emotions. The process of feeding is unclear, but instances appear drawn to feelings of isolation, shame, and hopelessness.

SCP-XXXX-02-A instances are predominantly attracted to individuals between the ages of 18 and 35 who exhibit low degrees of socialization and human interaction (hereafter SCP-XXXX-02-B).6

Instances of SCP-XXXX-02-A are highly variable in appearance, ranging from passably human to only tangentially humanoid. Most instances have at least one notable physical abnormality7 All recorded SCP-XXXX-02-A instances wear masks or other facial coverings fashioned from silicon or burlap drawing to a curved point 10-20 centimeter%. Approximately 85% of instances will have crude approximations of human facial features scrawled over the masks. Instances lack facial features beyond a crude mouth which generally appears to have been cut or carved.

SCP-XXXX-02-A instances are entirely mute. Despite being incapable of vocalization, instances of SCP-XXXX-02 make their desires and wishes known to SCP-XXXX-02-B instances through the use of empathic telepathy. SCP-XXXX-02-B instances describe the desires of SCP-XXXX-02 as admonitions to relax, "let go," and provide emotional comfort to them

Typically, a single instance of SCP-XXXX-02-A will feed on a human, although cases of up to three instances feeding have been observed (see Incident Log XXXX-049-R).

Despite their abnormal appearances, individuals not already aware of their anomalous nature will discount the unusual appearance of SCP-XXXX-02-A instances, and will frequently find it difficult to recollect interactions with an instance beyond generalities.


Prolonged interactions between SCP-XXX-02-A and -02-B inevitably end with the expiration of the latter, with a mean time to death of two months.
Addendum XXXX-F-09:

The following represent comments between Lillian Moutree and SCP-XXXX-02 via a compilation entitled
LilMouMou: It’s honestly very relaxing to be up, seeing the sun set and rise. No noise but my own thoughts and the music. I see the world, made for us, but totally empty and I feel calm. Like I could forget she existed. My responsibilities and pains float from me, and I almost feel free.

I could honestly just cry about it but the music and the steady movement of my pencil on paper (my laptop recently broke down on me, goodbye online art for now!) it’s really all I need to feel good about a day. Just to see little improvement even if no one else is seeing it.

I miss you still and I hate myself for still being so in love with you when you left me so easily

Remembering the happy nights, when playing with my bro and cousins where the best thing in the world.
No preoccupations, just happiness.

At night, I feel drifted away when I think about certain things. When I think about those things during a stressful day, I seem like a fool. But during a blissful night when I can actually sleep … Certain thoughts can feel like an angel reaching out to me

m I love music like this I search high and low to get music to flow into my brain and just control my thoughts my imagination. I picture vividly of what this songs speaks to me. I later draw it. I want to make short anime films to fit this to fit my thoughts

So there is this guy… I am absolutely in LOVE with him but he's my best friend.. actually ONLINE best friend and he calls be beautiful and pretty ext and acts like he likes me but talks to other girls like that I think.. it hurts to think about it

love does hurt… but lofi makes everything better… even a bullet wound can go away, if you just sit back and listen… listen to small angels singing in your ears, to tell you, you are okay

I don't know what's wrong with me, everyone leaves, everyone lies, everyone forgets me, replaces me, plays me, hurts me, they give up on me, am I really that bad

I crave love so badly but I'm also afraid of it. I've never been in a relationship or been told that i'm loved in THAT way

this music makes me think about things that i've never lived, but i wish i would have, but they are always with a special person by my side, i'm still waiting for that special person…I wish I could find that person soon

some day you will leave me… i just know it in my heart… …don't ever forget me… if you do,i'll never forgive you

Please, don't ever forget this song…or me

Subsequent interviews with Moutree, as she turns into vampire

so i will complete her journey

“Many people need desperately to receive this message: 'I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.”

It's weird, y'know? Like, intimate, I guess? There's this is little snippet of a world, and you're the only one that can see it. It's a crawl space into an entire world, and you're the only one that found it.
