Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Due to SCP-XXXX having no physical or containable form, any instance of SCP-XXXX-1 must be contained in a high-living standard with social interaction available at all times when identified. SCP-XXXX-1 should be treated by psychiatric staff and observed when sleeping.
Any instance of SCP-XXXX-2 should be treated accordingly until reverted back to its SPC-XXXX-1 variant. This can be done by:

- Providing a comforting and well-lit area.
- Providing a comfortable room temperature.
- Social interaction by a trusted individual.
- Stimuli that may induce euphoric reactions in SCP-XXXX-2

Description: SCP-XXXX is a form of lucid dreaming where victims will experience traumatizing dreams. Individuals that are being affected by SPC-XXXX are known as SCP-XXXX-2.
SCP-XXXX-2 will be in a comatose-like state which they cannot be woken up from by outside sources. SCP-XXXX-2 will experience a lucid nightmare very similar to the event “Sleep Paralysis” except having no control over what happens during the instance of SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-2 is only able to wake up once a certain “task” or “checkpoint” has been reached, though these may only lead to a follow-up of an SCP-XXXX instance.
The danger of this SCP is that any SCP-XXXX-2 has no knowledge that it is experiencing SCP-XXXX.
SCP-XXXX-2 will experience the feeling of returning to the SCP-XXXX-1 variant repeatedly until SCP-XXXX-1 has woken up. Often resulting in additional mental trauma depending on the resulting instance of SCP-XXXX
SCP-XXXX-1 will often experience SCP-XXXX in locations from their childhood, where individuals from their childhood are often included.
SCP-XXXX-1 are usually victims of bad experiences during childhood.
SCP-XXXX is treatable trough psychiatric treatment although effectiveness is not guaranteed. Instances of SCP-XXXX may occur to SCP-XXXX-1 at any point in their life, but normally at one or multiple periods, usually during states of weakness or dependence of others.
If SCP-XXXX-1 has not experienced SCP-XXXX during sleep for an extended period of time, they are safe to be released from any facility specified for SCP-XXXX-1. They are to be visited annually and have a way of contacting staff to be returned to the facility if an instance of SCP-XXXX has occurred.
If SCP-XXXX is not treated in SCP-XXXX-1, the individual may suffer from extreme hypnophobia, nyctophobia, monophobia, and teraphobia.
SCP-XXXX-1 may result to suffer from this if they are isolated for any period of time, being sleep deprived, or if they are in or see a dark area.
SCP-XXXX has caused numerous SCP-XXXX-1 to die from sleep deprivation or suicide.
It is possible for SCP-XXXX-2 to leave an instance of SCP-XXXX in three ways: by waking up, returning to a dreamless sleep, or experiencing a lucid dream in which SCP-XXXX is not present.
It is currently unknown if SCP-XXXX is an entity, mental illness, or part of the human genome.
All evidence of SCP-XXXX shows that it might be all, none, or one of the three forms.

Addendum: Note from researcher; Any instance of SCP-XXXX should be recorded by facility staff, and should be discussed with SCP-XXXX-1 during psychiatric meetings. This has shown to empower SCP-XXXX-1 in fighting future instances of SCP-XXXX.

Foreword: SCP-XXXX-1 is being questioned about her previous experience of SCP-XXXX by Dr. █████

<Begin Log, ██/██/████,██:██>

Dr. █████: So, can you tell me exactly what happened when you experienced SCP-XXXX last night?

SCP-XXXX-1: I woke up while I was dreaming, unable to move like usual. I was laying in the room I used to sleep in whenever I visited my grandparents.

Dr. █████: Did you see anything when you woke up inside your dream?

SCP-XXXX-1: I was looking at the chair that used to be next to the bed, I didn’t want to look away though because I felt something was laying next to me.
Dr. █████: I see, did this thing do anything to you?
SCP-XXXX-1:** No, it just laid there, only until I moved did it- (SCP-XXXX-1 starts to cry)
Dr. █████: Easy now, you’re awake, there’s nothing here to hurt you.
SCP-XXXX-1: (SCP-XXXX-1 calms down slightly) I couldn’t see its face but I knew it was terrifying, it pushed me down further into the mattress and started clawing at me, I felt pieces of my body get ripped away as it bit into me. (SCP-XXXX-1) continues crying hysterically
Dr. █████: █████████, come in here, take her back to her room and make sure she calms down.
