Item #: SCP-3000

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Access to the Amundsen Sea should be restricted, with Foundation vessels circling the area. Investigation of the anomaly should be done with ROVs only, piloted by researchers trained in handling cognitohazards and memetics. Anti-Cognitohazard bots should monitor all footage and images from the ROVs. Any personnel showing signs of possible SCP-3000 effects should be quarantined and monitored.

Research into the anomaly is ongoing.

Description: SCP-3000 a cognitohazardous species of Siphonophorae, likely located within the Amundsen Sea, off the coast of West Antarctica. Current knowledge suggests that the cognitohazard causes subjects to gain an affinity for the ocean, which appears to increase over time. Whether this increase happens after one exposure to the anomaly or is the result of multiple exposures is being investigated.

It is unknown when SCP-3000 was first discovered, though the encounter by the Foundation Research Vessel Pierre Aronnax is the first recorded one. The ship was investigating the possibility of SCP-879-2 instances in the area when personnel were exposed to SCP-3000, believed to have occurred around 18-2-2017. Following this contact with the Foundation gradually decreased. As security footage was destroyed, little is known about what happened during this time. Below are relevant excepts from the diary of Researcher Javier Demetrio, one of the ship's crew, which details the affects of the anomaly and events during this time.


Once again, no sign of the elusive -2(s). We've only been out for two days, so I'm not expecting any immediate progress, especially with such a large area to cover. I still don't feel one ship is enough for this investigation, though any more may be a waste of resources if this doesn't turn out to be around here, so I guess it's reasonable. Have seen some cool creatures, so that's a plus.




So far the pheromone trail has led us nowhere. We've got no way to test whether the detector is behaving right, and nobody is going to test the pheromoney water, so we're at a dead end here. It is nice looking out at the native creatures around here, though. You don't expect a lot of life out in this area.


The detector's busted. James practically broke it off the side of the boat (didn't know the sub claws were so strong), carefully took it out of the water and, after cleaning it out, poured some water into it. We got a high detection of pheromones from it, then after a few more tests we figured it was kaput. Sonar and sight is our best bet now, which may get annoying with the normal creatures that swim around the ship, though it might be more obvious if one shows up. Who knows. I'm going to tinker around with the machine a bit with the hopes of getting it working.

For the record I lost my mind after I saw what he was doing, but I've mostly calmed down now.

The weird jelly guys are pretty strange. They look like long jellyfish, with weird reddish orbs in them that flash every now and then. Its been fairly soothing looking out at them from my bunk, as strange as that sounds. In fact I'm looking at them right now as a write.



While Mali and I were looking out from the deck she was telling me about all of the stuff that lives around deep sea vents. I'd known about that before, but it's always been fairly interesting that stuff can live completely isolated from the surface for millions of years and do just fine. It seems so lonely down there, but it's far from that.

Also, before I forget, the pheromone sensor is more broken than I thought it was. Despite my thoughts of James breaking it off having broken it, something weird happened with the interior (and a bit of the exterior). Some rough holes had been carved in the side, leading to the electronics components, which had been intrinsically messed with. It got rigged to sense the [illegible - word scribbled out]g pheromones wherever it got dragged in the water.


First thing I did today, practically after waking up, I asked Mali about what the jelly-like serpent things were doing around our boat, since she's the resident marine biologist (the only one that actually wants to talk to me, that is). Her best guess was that there were a type of siphonophore, the things that are big colonies of smaller organisms. She wasn't exactly sure why they were so close to surface, but, strangely, she said, "It's not my job to learn about that." Actually she works as a FOUNDATION marine biologist, so identifying new species isn't her thing. Checks out for me.

Something nice is that she's been staring at the siphonophores a lot too! Turns out neither of us are weird for doing that.






Today is the last day I will see the crew for a long time. They're going to board the subs, and I'll operate the lifts to send them off to home. It's going to be the last day

On 27-2-2017, the ship's crew, with the exception of Demetrio, boarded the submersibles Conseil-1 and -2. The submersibles were released into the water, and began to descend. Below is a transcript of footage from an exterior camera on Conseil-2.




After four days without communication from FRV Pierre Aronnax, MTF-Pi-9 ("Dyer's Crew") was dispatched from Antarctic Research Site-98 to the sea. On 4-3-2017, the vessel and Conseil-2 were found and retrieved. Conseil-2 had a series of dents on its underside, along with a broken rotor. The crew is presumed dead.

Addendum: blah

SCP Ideas

  • Cognitohazardous hand gestures used by antimemetically hidden gangs in Youngstown, Ohio

The Listeners' War
Foundation antimemetics-laden civil war over info on the pattern screamers. Involves the Memetics Division, Antimemetics Division, the Counterconceptual Division, and Team Ea.

  • Patchwork Infovore
  • Non-Conceptual: Stopping a Team Ea agent that intentionally underwent conceptual degradation.
  • Unnamed: Interrogating the assassin.

Tale Idea: A Foundation researcher begins communicating with alternate reality versions of herself during a containment breach, in an attempt at surviving by learning what other versions of herself did/are doing (some are farther ahead in their timelines). They can communicate via an IRC type thing, with live feeds and death notifications for whenever a researcher dies. The main researcher (the main character) has to multitask between surviving, seeing what others have done, and guiding new researchers.

  • IDEA: The oldest researcher gets to the site's exit and find that it is locked with seemingly no way out. Since they all tried to follow her path, she has doomed them all to failure. She commits suicide, and several others follow.
    • Remaining people along this path have to see if they can succeed this way, while new ones have to go out on their on a different way.

Name: Dr. ██████ Bond

Security Clearance: Level 4


A recreation of the front of Dr. Bond's current memetic effect.

Profile: Dr. ██████ Bond is a male 3█ year old researcher currently working for the Foundation. In the ██ years of working for the Foundation, Bond has been involved in the containment and research of a multitude of SCPs, and has served in multiple divisions. He is currently serving in the Foundation Area-08 Space Division. When not performing research, Dr. Bond is an avid writer, artist, and gamer. He also has a fondness for science fiction and fantasy.

Dr. Bond's research style is characterized by a cautious approach, spending hours considering what could go wrong in an experiment and only using only what is exactly required. However, he will at times use additional security precautions in case of unexpected results. Outside of his job Bond has been described as relaxed an fun loving, but mostly enjoying time to himself.

Dr. Bond has had a degree of cross contamination from other anomalies, including a resistence to Class A-D amnestics. After a notable incident involving SCP-████, Dr. Bond gained a permanent memetic effect on his head region, appearing as a black cube with a depiction of a face on the front of it. This is seen by anyone looking at Bond, and is also seen in video or images of him. Objects being worn on his head will be obscured entirely, even if they are larger than the box appears to be. Objects being moved to his head will also be obscured if brought close enough. The eyes and "mouth" of the face will change shape, correlating to Bond's facial expressions. Attempts at reversing this have been attempted, though none have succeeded. This does not hinder his research, though careful attention has been payed for any unusual behavior and possible side-effects.

History: Prior to joining the Foundation in 19██, Dr. Bond was originally labelled as POI #4377. In 19██ Bond had been involved in experimentation with anomalous objects at the University of Calgary at the age of 21, having gotten several fellow students to join him. He was discovered when one of the anomalies, a extradimensional safe, released several humanoid entities composed of plasma onto the campus. Undercover Foundation operatives in the area witnessed this, and an MTF unit was dispatched to the location. After securing the anomalies Bond barricaded himself into his dorm room, using several pieces of [REDACTED] to block the door and windows. Later interviews stated that this done because he was worried he would be killed. Upon breaching the room Bond willingly surrendered and turned himself in. Interrogation revealed that he had found the objects at [REDACTED], which he had been visiting for roughly a year.

Bond was brought along for an investigation of the area, as he had familiarity with it. With his aid several anomalies were contained, along with a space-time anomaly believed to be the primary source of these. Bond requested to join the Foundation, stating that it was the best way he could make up for the incident at the University. After consideration he was administered Class A amnestics, though these had surprisingly no effect on him33. After attempted use of other amnestics, Bond was made a Junior Researcher, with careful supervision to look for any suspicious activity. Since then Dr. Bond has become a Level 4 Researcher after proving to be adept in handling anomalies. For a brief period he served as an MTF agent in MTF-Eta-834, but left following Incident ████-1, where SCP-████ killed all agents deployed but Bond. After psychiatric counseling he returned to his researching duties.
