Metamorphosis


Hey. Hows it going? I see you found my little easter egg. Don't worry, this is not quite it. I just don't have much set up yet. Thanks for taking the time to investigate my document. Really appreciate it. Do you like the title? I wrote it myself. It's like… combining Meta with like… a transformation. But the word metamorphosis is already a thing. So it's… nevermind. I'll probably change it again anyways.

Item #: SCP-3455

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3455 is contained in Site-120, Keter Containment Wing, Containment Unit 3. Four Scranton Reality Anchors are placed surrounding SCP-3455, creating a focal point with a geometric center directly on the subject. SCP-3455 remains restrained to a psychiatric table constructed of reality-stable materials. Kant scanners are monitored in shifts, noting that Hume levels fluctuate most often during waking hours. Psychiatric evaluations are conducted bi-weekly. While the subject has remained compliant during detainment, personnel are to expect SCP-3455 to experience acute psychological deterioration due to its anomalous effects. No testing or documentation regarding SCP-3455 is allowed in Detainment Unit 3; all records are to be taken externally.

Update: ██/██/0█: If the subject were to initiate a CK-Class Restructuring Scenario, the Einstein-Rosen Singularity generator1 placed in Containment Unit 3 will be activated, accept SCP-3455 into the singularity, and be deactivated. The frequency used will then be blacklisted from Foundation records. See Addendum for more information.

CURRENT FREQUENCY: 137440

Description: SCP-3455 is the designation of Jesse R. Mantell, a Level 5 researcher previously assigned to the testing of the device designated the "Scantron-Locke Reality Generator", previously assigned the item number SCP-34552. Kant readings taken of SCP-3455 are uncertain due to the nature of its properties- however, it is believed to have, on average, a total of at least ███, ranking the highest measured ontokinetic entity based on hume levels.

SCP-3455 has been thus far compliant in containment procedures and testing, likely due to its former employment. SCP-3455's reality bending abilities are incredibly effective- because of this, SCP-3455 is unable to control itself properly. SCP-3455 often enters an intangible or supertangible state due to this, primarily during heightened levels of stress, and thus cannot be feasibly terminated.

Addendum: As of ██/██/0█, data suggests that SCP-3455 has begun to exponentially increase its internal hume value. This would suggest the plausibility of a CK-Class Reconstruction Scenario event, resulting in both the death of SCP-3455 and an estimated 478% rise in hume levels surrounding the local solar system.

Subject: SCP-3455

Do not assume we are relegating SCP-3455 to the gallows. We are working diligently to decrease the Hume levels of SCP-3455. Giving him the opportunity to harness his reality-altering powers to attempt to self balance could cause just as much destruction as a "superreality" event, if not more. However, it is in all of our best interests that SCP-3455's anomalous behavior reduces, as they have previously been very beneficial to the Foundation. Mantell was one of our best and brightest. We will not give up.

Isn't it kinda rude to be created from archetypes? Reduced to a generalization of characters far more masterfully composed?

So, how's it hanging up in the superverse? It must be swell to think you're on top of this when you're clearly not. Take it from my perspective: if you understand that one narrative is sandwiched in a higher universe, I'd bet anything that one is a narrative hidden in a narrative, and all the way up. Hey, that's a good idea, someone should write a document for it. Something with the Sopranos. Anyways, take care. Every day I and everyone else like me etch a little farther into this plexiglass wall separating us with my meta… haha meta… metaphorical prison spoon. We'll see you all soon.

I hope I've achieved some semblance of a working production. Upon potential success this will be my first SCP.

Acknowledgements are in order:

YossiLiener: My main man. This would be a marked a collaboration if not for the decline, because of the amount of effort he's put in to help.

TheeSherm: Not only providing constant and exceedingly helpful critique, this person was one of the few present when the idea was sparked.

The SCPDeclassified server: Too many to name individually. Every one of you has been an instrumental part of this process.

The IRC Chat & Draft Forums: The same to you. Each of you has helped tremendously.

And to you, the one who took the time to dig deep to the source. Thanks a bunch.

-Jack.

And one last thing: An apology to Modern Erasmus. Sometimes things should be listened to and not confronted.
