I have way too many ideas.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-3 are to be stored in a padded case, and may be removed for testing with permission from any senior staff member. When not in use, the case will be stored in a safe along with SCP-XXXX-2.

SCP-XXXX-2 is to be stored in a locker alongside SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-3. It is to have removable plastic caps fitted onto both ends when not in testing.

Cross-testing or assembly of the individual components of SCP-XXXX is strictly forbidden to personnel without level 4 clearance.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation of a set of correlated anomalous objects.

  • SCP-XXXX-1 is the eyepiece of an antique telescope, made out of brass and oak wood with an unknown blue crystalline material making up the small lens.
  • SCP-XXXX-2 is the large lens of an antique telescope, made out of the same unidentified crystalline material, and etched with symbols depicting the phases of the moon around the edge.
  • SCP-XXXX-3 is the barrel and stand of an antique telescope, made out of oak wood and brass. When deployed it stands 1.2 meters tall, but can be elevated an additional 0.8 meters by way of a hand crank.

The individual pieces of the telescope may be assembled into a full-sized telescope, however this is strictly forbidden without proper clearance due to the new anomalous abilities that manifest when combined. Further information regarding this is restricted to Level 4 personnel and above.

The anomalous abilities of SCP-XXXX-1 manifest when looked through. Upon placing the eyepiece to their face, any person or entity looking through it will experience a mental projection in which their visual perspective may shift freely, allowing them to explore and observe any area currently visible from SCP-XXXX-1. Viewers report a blue tint to their surroundings while using SCP-XXXX-1.

The viewer may not physically interact with the world at this time, and cannot move their perspective through solid objects. They will return to their body and resume normal functions if they shift their perspective back within SCP-XXXX-1, or if they attempt to move it into any area currently not visible from SCP-XXXX-1. These boundaries are described as being visible as a large, dark blue barrier.

SCP-XXXX-2, when looked through, does not display whatever is on the other side of the lens. Instead, it shows a dark, featureless expanse. However, if earth's moon is viewed through the lens, it will be seen clearly, in a full state regardless of the current phase. The lens emits a faint blue light at this time, originating from the projection within.

The projection of the moon within SCP-XXXX-2 is shown to be approximately 60% larger than earth's moon, and to have a blue coloration regardless of how it is viewed. Colorblind persons also report being able to see the projection in blue color, but no other objects show any signs of change.

SCP-XXXX-3's anomalous abilities trigger when any entity capable of sight looks through the smaller end of its barrel, where the eyepiece would be affixed. Upon doing so, they will be immediately teleported to the other end of the barrel. This effect will not trigger if there is insufficient space to support the entity on the other side. Persons teleported by this effect reportedly perceive a flash of blue light, and sensations of decreased gravity for several seconds afterwards.
