SCP-XXXX's collapse point

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Containment procedure 62-Tango-Foxtrot (standard containment for anomalous structures, nonurban) is followed for SCP-XXXX and the 10m surrounding area under the guise of an endangered species mating grounds. In addition, no fewer than four guards should be on duty at all times to direct traffic elsewhere and prevent any civilians from swimming below SCP-XXXX. Intruders discovered within the grounds of SCP-XXXX are to be apprehended, administered Class A amnestics, and released. Air traffic is to be directed away from SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a two-lane concrete suspension bridge extending due west into the Pacific Ocean from a cliffside in ███████ █████, OR. The bridge is surrounded by fog at all times; attempts to remove the fog have been unsuccessful. Attempts to measure the length of the bridge have been met with mixed success (see Addendum XXXX-01). SCP-XXXX does not reach where it should make second landfall in Hokkaido, Japan.

Upon seeing SCP-XXXX, sapient beings exhibit signs of unease and a desire to look and/or walk away. This is present in all sapient beings, but the severity of the emotion is stronger in those who have experienced the death by suicide of someone emotionally close to them. Reactions have ranged from a simple look away from SCP-XXXX to screaming, contorting (within acceptable bodily measures), and violence in an attempt to get away. When asked to explain why they do not want to go near the bridge, six separate subjects have responded with the exact wording, "I don't know. I don't like it."

Once subjects have touched SCP-XXXX, the desire to escape immediately disappears and subjects regain normal lucidity; this has allowed researchers to safely cross SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX has collapsed roughly 80,000m. from its initial landfall.

Addendum XXXX-01: Attempts to measure SCP-XXXX

Attempt Result
Measurement by air visuals Unmanned Foundation craft follows SCP-XXXX over Pacific Ocean. SCP-XXXX lost in fog at 1400m. and does not reemerge. Aircraft recalled.
Measurement by sea visuals Manned Foundation craft follows SCP-XXXX through Pacific Ocean. Craft follows SCP-XXXX to collapse point at 80,000m and reports that SCP-XXXX collapses into sea. Visuals confirm. Craft recalled.
Measurement by unmanned robot See Exploration Log XXXX-a.
Measurement by foot See Exploration Log XXXX-b.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there.

I did not die.

Dr. Lavoie has always been a secretive man.

He's older, now, in his mid-40s, blond hair fading to gray at the temples. He has crows feet at the edges of his eyes, laugh lines around his mouth, he's gotten fatter. He remembers being young, hungry, and now he is full. He still does good work. Some of the humanoids trust him, especially the children, and a lot of the animals do, too.

Dr. Lavoie is good at his job, and his job is all he knows. Sometimes that makes him sad. Most of the time, it doesn't.

In his quarters, there's a photograph tucked on a shelf in his closet, out of the way. There's a woman in it, blonde, with dark eyes and a wide smile. She stands with her family, a husband who is going bald, a baby in a pink blanket in her arms, two sons who look like mirrors of each other. They look happy.

Dr. Lavoie doesn't like to look at it, and if you asked him why, he almost certainly couldn't tell you.

SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a sealed airtight storage locker in the electromagnetic storage area of Site-15. It is to remain turned off, with the battery removed, at all times. All testing must be approved by a level-3 researcher.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a silver Nokia 2600 cell phone, manufactured in 2004. There is slight scratching on the screen, as well as minor cosmetic damages to the phone's casing. Despite its age, SCP-XXXX is still capable of accepting and holding a charge from a standard charging cable. Its battery degrades at a normal rate for its year and brand.

SCP-XXXX-1 is the entity that originates from SCP-XXXX. Identifying itself as "Marcie O████", the entity is capable of communication through text messaging. The texts indicate an incoming phone number of +1-000-000-0000; outgoing calls to this number from standard phones do not connect. Outgoing calls from SCP-XXXX consistently result in four rings, followed by a computer-generated verbal message consisting of, "Please leave a message for [Marcie O████]" followed by a beep. The name "Marcie O████" is said by a female, age 18-24, with a slight Ottowa accent. SCP-XXXX has not received a return phone call while in Foundation custody.

SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1 have been tied to a string of murders within the Pittsburgh area. The gender, age, and appearance of the perpetrators have no obvious link, while the victims are consistently white men, aged 33-38, wearing wire-frame glasses, and averaging 1.85m in height and 63.5kg in weight. All murders are perpetuated on October 16. An incomplete list follows.

Through text conversations, SCP-XXXX-1 engenders feelings of affection, desire, and love for SCP-XXXX-1 in the perpetrator. SCP-XXXX-1 then encourages the perpetrator to kill the victim, claiming the victim is a person who has harmed SCP-XXXX-1 in the past. No victims have been otherwise linked to SCP-XXXX or Marcia O████.

The following text logs show communications between SCP-XXXX-1 and 19-year-old S. Johnson, the final owner of SCP-XXXX. Johnson acquired SCP-XXXX on 9/10/201█ from a garbage can outside of his apartment building, intending on using it while his own phone was being repaired. Johnson shot and killed Peter Brown, 36, in Pittsburgh, PA on 10/16/201█ shortly before shooting and killing himself. The cell phone was recovered by a Foundation field agent implanted in the Pittsburgh police department after crime scene techs repeatedly traced SCP-XXXX-1's text messages as originating from SCP-XXXX. Amnestics were administered and the case has been closed as a schizophrenia-induced homicide.

Addendum XXXX-01:

SCP-XXXX's first owner, Isaac Sidney "Sid" B█████████, has been located. Records indicate that he died on █/██/20██ in Ottowa, CA due to a reckless driving incident. Photographs taken of Mr. B█████████ have shown that he was a tall, thin man in his mid-thirties with wire-frame glasses. Interviews with his friends and family have indicated he likely bought SCP-XXXX for his then-girlfriend, Marcia "Marcie" O███. Further investigation revealed that Ms. O████ moved to Pittsburgh, PA on █/██/20██, one week after Mr. B█████████'s death. She has since legally changed her name to Irene P████.
