Maniacal monkey

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object class: Euclid

Special containment procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept in a standard 5m x 5m humanoid containment chamber located on Site 67. After Incident I-XXXX-X interviews with SCP-XXXX-1 shall be conducted no more then once per week with a rotation of different researchers (see incident report I-XXXX-X for more details). Additionally in order to further counteract the effects of SCP-XXXX-1 personnel are required to wear a wrist strap capable of producing a total of nine to twelve miliamps of shock at a set interval of thirty to sixty seconds. Under no circumstances are personnel to refer to SCP-XXXX-1 as “uninteresting” or any synonyms thereof while in the immediate vicinity of SCP-XXXX-1 (see Interview log-XXXX-X for details). Due to SCP-XXXX-1s continued compliance with tests and its general demeanor SCP-XXXX-1, is allowed access to requested items approved by the site director.

A sample of requested items by SCP-XXXX-1 are as follows:

  • One copy of New York’s 1986 phone book.1 (Approved)
  • One fake rock to have as a pet.2 (Approved)
  • Copies of several different Terms of Use Agreements.34 (Approved)

In the event of a case of SCP-XXXX-2 forming SCP-XXXX-2 is to be immediately moved to the site infirmary for immediate treatment of the subject as well as reducing SCP-XXXX-1s area of effect. Effective treatment of SCP-XXXX-2 has proven to consist of exposing cases of SCP-XXXX-2 to materials the SCP-XXXX-2 had found entertaining or mentally stimulating before becoming a case of SCP-XXXX-2.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a 45 year old man of average height, weight and appearance, the only defining characteristic of SCP-XXXX-1 is its entire body is colored varying shades of grey. SCP-XXXX-1s anomalous ability is not apparent right away and only becomes apparent over a period of time SCP-XXXX-1 has the anomalous ability of causing inanimate items all items within a ten foot radius of SCP-XXXX-1 to lose all pigmentation resulting in said items becoming dull and unappealing shades of grey. These items become various shades of grey over a variable amount of time, depending on size.5. Tests have shown that it takes human beings roughly three to four days, based on the average persons body mass, to lose pigmentation with repeated exposure accelerating this process. Subjects within this ten foot radius report feelings of extreme boredom and monotony with several subjects passing out from sheer boredom. All objects affected by SCP-XXXX-1 are to be handed over for testing.

Human subjects that do lose all pigment become cases of SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-2 victims suffer a complete shift in behavior and personality reflecting those of SCP-XXXX-1. Tests have shown that while SCP-XXXX-2 do not have the pigmentation sapping effect of SCP-XXXX-1 they do effectively double the size of SCP-XXXX-1s area of effect when in its general vicinity. With treatment, and regular counseling by site psychiatrists victims of SCP-XXXX-2 do eventually regain their pigmentation. Unfortunately 99% subjects have yet to make a full return to their former personality.6 Inanimate objects effected by SPC-XXXX-1 show no signs of regaining pigment.

Note: It is recommended that subjects recovering from loss of pigmentation not take part in strenuous activity or be exposed to shocking media due to a dramatically increased chance of heart attack.

Interviewer: Dr. Matthias Chrome

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX-1


Dr. Chrome: How long have you had this anomalous ability?

SCP-XXXX-1: I was just rereading the dictionary like I'd done a hundred times before when I noticed the strangest thing. The tip of my of my left pointer finger, or was it my right, no it was definitely the left one. The tip of my left pointer finger seemed to be completely grey. (At this point Dr. Chrome became noticeably lethargic and appears somewhat dazed despite the three cups of coffee he had just ingested.)

SCP-XXXX-1: I remember thinking to myself that was peculiar but I was in the middle of the R's and I simply couldn't stop. Truly riveting stuff, anyways as soon as I finished the R's I…

Dr. Chrome: I must remind you to keep your answers to a minimum.

SCP-XXXX: Well aren't we in such a hurry. No time to allow me to finish telling my story properly huh? You have to interrupt me in the middle of it? Have you no manners at all, were you raised in a barn? I will not tolerate such rudeness. Come back tomorrow when you are ready to give me a proper interview.

aybe call this the most uninteresting man in the world ?? Interviews to be added maybe testing as well. The general tone I’m going for with this SCP is one of humor which I plan on focusing on in the interviews and testing but I’ve tried to reflect in the foot notes and item requests as well. For testing of objects I planned on video games and movies and the like become bland and repetitive etc. the long and short of this SCP he makes stuff boring.
