Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to its nature, SCP-XXXX is at a constant threat of an information breach and could possibly lead to a catastrophic disruption of normalcy. As such, both Site-43 and Area-26 are currently working on a collaborative research effort into studying the nature of SCP-XXXX and how it functions in order to fully understand its possible global impact and effects. Until a solid basis for containment, or suppression of SCP-XXXX is found, Mobile Task Force Gamma-12 ("Dream Crawlers") is to be on constant standby, ready for immediate deployment in the case of a Stage One Two1 Koma event.

Gamma-12 is to be deployed to the location of the Stage One Two Koma event upon discovery and are directed to immediately amnesticize affected individuals, hereby designated SCP-XXXX-1. Following amnesticization, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be placed under watch for 72 hours. After the 72 hours have ended, SCP-XXXX-1's internet activity is to be monitored indefinitely. In the event of any mentions of dreams SCP-XXXX-1 has had, posted online or otherwise, Gamma-12 is to be deployed and SCP-XXXX-1 is to be immediately terminated and brought to the nearest site for incineration. IP addresses that access online postings of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be traced and the individual is to be brought into Site-43 for indefinite containment.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be brought to Site-43 to undergo psychological testing and questioning. After the passing of 48 hours, the individuals are to be amnesticized and made D-Class personnel.

In the case of a Stage Three Koma event, the affected individual is to be re-designated as SCP-XXXX-2. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be quarantined and an 8 kilometer exclusion zone is to be established around SCP-XXXX-2. Any unauthorized individuals attempting to pass the perimeter are to be questioned, issued amnestics, and turned away under the guise of the area being the site of T. Personnel are advised to use any force deemed necessary in the case of an unauthorized individual continuously attempting to enter the area. In the case of a Stage Three Koma event occurring on site, Gamma-12 is instructed to take affected individuals to a remote location for quarantine.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a memetic dream affecting approximately 0.0000017% 99%2 of the Earth's population. SCP-XXXX's effects consist events occurring in three stages, known as Koma events. The first stage of which is capable of affecting any living organism capable of entering REM sleep. A Stage One Koma event is defined as the state of experiencing SCP-XXXX3. Advancement to stage two occurs when an affected individual experiences SCP-XXXX. Individuals experiencing a Stage Two Koma event undergo a constant urge to share information about SCP-XXXX. While the urge to discuss SCP-XXXX with others is easily ignored, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will grow increasingly distressed if they are unable to discuss SCP-XXXX with another individual. If segregated from others, SCP-XXXX-1 instances will speak to themselves audibly, anticipating a passerby to overhear them, only stopping to eat or sleep. Use of amnestics has shown that SCP-XXXX-1 instances can be reverted to their pre-SCP-XXXX-1 state of being. To date, numerous SCP-XXXX-1 instances have been successfully amnesticized, but remain at Site-43 due to being at increased risk of recurrence of SCP-XXXX.

A summarized analysis of SCP-XXXX recounted by various subjects is as follows:

  • The subject wakes up in their bedroom at what appears to be noon.
  • The subject reads a paper document4 of what has been identified as SCP-████5.
  • Upon finishing the document, subject gets off their bed and proceeds to a corner of the room.
  • In each instance, an arbitrary mechanical device is present in the corner of the room the subject goes to. (Recorded devices include a typewriter and an orrery.)
  • The subject spends a variable amount of time dismantling the device found in their room.
  • Immediately upon finishing, the subject wakes up.

A Stage Three Koma event occurs following SCP-XXXX-1 interacting with either the device they dismantled within SCP-XXXX, or by conversing with another instance of SCP-XXXX-1. However, there is a noticeable difference in the intensity of the Stage Three Koma event depending on the activation circumstances.
