TheBarracuda99 SCP drafts

Item #: SCP-X

Object Class: Safe (getting to classified documents will reveal the object class as Thaumiel)

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-X is to be locked within any safe at Site-42. The safe's dimensions should conform to 10x30x30 cm. While SCP-X is safe to handle, sterilized gloves must be worn when holding SCP-X to prevent damage to it's cover or pages. All testing with SCP-X must take place in a large enough area for SCP-X-1 to materialize. The recommended area for this is 20x15x15 meters. All level 2 and lower objects created by SCP-X have been declassified; however, level 3 and above require credential input.

Description: SCP-X appears on first sight as a non-fiction novel about the history of space flight, titled "How to make a Spaceship: A Band of Renegades, An Epic Race, and the Birth of Private Spaceflight", written by Julian Guthrie. This novel was published on September 20th, 2016, and appears to have no memetic or anomalous properties on its own. Thus, it is believed that SCP-X's effect is unique to itself.

SCP-X's anomalous properties emerge when a subject makes a request for instructions in building any sort of object that the subject knows about. When this request is made, the cover of SCP-X will change it's cover to match the object that has been requested, with the title "How to make __", the blank being filled in with the word describing the object requested. No author is listed, and any publisher information has been removed as well. While the number of pages on the outside does not seem to change, when SCP-X is opened by the subject, the pages will change to the amount needed to fully list the instructions needed to build the object. The number of pages seems to have no limit, ranging from 0 to 45,527. (This is only the highest number ever recorded.)

SCP-X-1 is a warehouse that will spontaneously appear when the object is requested. Inside the warehouse is a full inventory of materials needed to build the object that the subject asked for. These parts will have no defects unless the defects are needed for the construction of the final product.

SCP-X does not work if the subject has little or no knowledge on their requested object. The subject must have some intricate experience that directly or indirectly deals with the object at hand. Subjects also cannot request for multiple objects in one request. SCP-X seems to have a waiting period of at least one week, but has been recorded as waiting nearly 90 days before being able to be activated again.

Discovery: SCP-X came to the attention of the Foundation after reports of a man named _ _ building numerous sport cars in the span of three days appeared on the local news of ___, Saskatchewan, Canada. MTF Iota-10 "Damn Feds" was dispatched to collect the anomalous object.

Testing Logs:

Subject: MTF Nu-7 "Hammer Down" Commander

Object requested: B-52 Stratofortress


SCP-X's cover changed to that of a black-and-white photo of a B-52 dropping it's a load of napalm bombs over what's likely to be the country of Cambodia. The title read "How to make A B-52 Stratofortress". SCP-X-1 materialized at the same time, and when entered, lead to an aircraft hanger with all B-52 components laid out. Instructions were followed per SCP-X's instructions, and the aircraft functioned normally when tested seven days later.
