Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be disguised as private property belonging to [Blackboxes]. Eight (8) armed guards disguised as federal guards are to be stationed on the fence blocking SCP-XXXX off. The weaponry used should be loaded with blanks.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a fenced-off area of land approximately 300 meters in length. What is within SCP-XXXX is unknown due to its anomalous properties. When any person(s) enter SCP-XXXX from any area not designated “the front”, they will have entered SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1 is an area of unknown distance, possibly being infinite. It is a heavily forested area, similar to a rainforest. Differences include an absence of both animals and fruit, along with a potentially anomalous effect that causes those within to have a feeling of unease.

When SCP-XXXX is entered from it’s “front” by any person(s), they enter SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-2 is a pathway approximately one (1) kilometer in length. Any vehicles used for transportation brought into SCP-XXXX-2 inevitably break down within the first ten (10) meters. When the person(s) that have entered SCP-XXXX-2 move on the path, they will suffer lacerations on the arms, legs, lower torso. When person(s) are approximately five hundred (500) meters down the path, lacerations will start forming internally. Approximately eight hundred (800) meters down the path, lacerations will start appearing on important organs and parts of the body, such as the neck, heart, and brain. SCP-XXXX-3 appears on the path, walking down it. If the person(s) manage to survive the full kilometer, they will have reached SCP-XXXX-4.

SCP-XXXX-3 are deformed humanoids who move down SCP-XXXX-2, appearing seemingly out of nowhere. If the person(s) take any instance of SCP-XXXX-3 with them, SCP-XXXX-2’s effects are lessened. If approximately three (3) instances of SCP-XXXX-3 with them, they will not be affected by SCP-XXXX-2’s effect, but eventually appear within SCP-XXXX-1, where [DATA REDACTED].

SCP-XXXX-4 is a defunct factory of unknown height and size. Different accounts have differing sizes. Within SCP-XXXX-4 is an item, usually of desire to the person(s). Upon removing the item and keeping it, the person(s) who keep it will appear within SCP-XXXX-1, where SCP-XXXX-3 will swarm them and [DATA REDACTED]. If the person(s) do not keep SCP-XXXX-4’s item, they will appear outside SCP-XXXX with no memory of their journey.

Interview Log of SCP-XXXX-3:

Interviewer: D-14287, assisted by Dr. [Blackboxes]

SCP-XXXX-3: It's a lovely day, isn't it, buddy?

It nudges D-14287, attempting to elicit a reaction.

D-14287: It is? Eh, maybe to you.

SCP-XXXX-3: Aw, come on!

D-14287 pauses, listening to Dr. [Blackboxes]

D-14287: I'd… I'd like to ask something. What ARE you?

SCP-XXXX-3 pauses.

SCP-XXXX-3: You know, it's rude to ask things that. It'll get you killed out here! But, since we're in a nice mood… we're Hitchikers.

D-14287: Alright… but that doesn't answer the question. What are you? What is this place?

SCP-XXXX-3: We are… we are united. We are a group. We don't want anyone in harm's way. Sometimes… we hunger.

It pauses, thinking.

SCP-XXXX-3: This place is simply a pathway. The jungle out there, the Wastes guard this place from those who are not pure of heart. And the Home… it lies at the end of the Pathway. We wish to guard it from those unpure, so we guide the pure.

D-14287 is not seen rolling his eyes, but it is obvious that he did so.

SCP-XXXX-3: Don't disrespect us with the sign you aren't listening! Your eye movement says you—

D-14287: So… can I see Home?

SCP-XXXX-3: W3lL y u se th t Yo a E n f us…

Do you want to live forever?

[DATA CORRUPTED]

You sigh, muttering to youself about how all this tehcnological malfunction will be the bane of you.

You finally pick yourself up off the ground, starting down the pathway, feeling the familiar feeling of a cut on your arm. They were wrong about the memory loss. We just wanted to banish it. And they're sending you down again.

You know what to do. You feel your steps get closer… and closer… telling yourself "One more step. One more step."
