SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is stored in a lead-lined safe in a secure location at Site-21. SCP-XXXX's safe is to be opened each month for inspection and cleaning (if necessary.) Two D-Class personnel are to be chosen each month for the inspection of SCP-XXXX's safe; with this exception, no personnel below clearance Level 3 are to be given access to SCP-XXXX's safe.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a traditional European teapot 20.3 centimeters in height and 10.1 centimeters in diameter at its base. SCP-XXXX was recovered from an abandoned cottage in ███████, Nebraska, on February ██, 200█ after neighbors of the house stated that the owners had gone missing. SCP-XXXX is not built out of materials a common teapot would be made out of; rather, it is crafted from intricate replica pieces of machinery, such as gears, pipes, and pistons. SCP-XXXX is filled with 300 milliliters of a viscous, black substance referred to as SCP-XXXX-1. This substance, when coming into contact with solid material, opens a "portal" (with exceptions — see footnote1) to a pocket dimension hereby referred to as SCP-XXXX-2. Similarly, if SCP-XXXX-1 comes into contact with locomotive matter (e.g. an individual submerges his hand in SCP-XXXX-1), the portal will still manifest and will move with the surface. If any amount of SCP-XXXX-1 is removed from SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX refills itself with the lost amount of SCP-XXXX-1 through currently unknown means at a random point in the day, and the portal created by SCP-XXXX-1 simultaneously shrinks out of existence.

The pocket dimension of SCP-XXXX-2 is a vast expanse of hills. Currently, it is unknown if SCP-XXXX-2 has an endpoint, and it is assumed to be infinite in size. SCP-XXXX-2's landscape and climate is not unlike that of the American Midwest's prairies. A stellar body similar to our sun is present in the sky of SCP-XXXX-2 and has not been recorded to move, creating a state of perpetual daytime. No other organic lifeforms except for the common grass Bouteloua gracilis have been observed in SCP-XXXX-2. Cirrocumulus clouds have occasionally been spotted within SCP-XXXX-2, although there has never been a recorded event of any form of precipitation.

SCP-XXXX-2 has a placating effect on humans who enter it, with the effect increasing in magnitude the longer the subject resides within SCP-XXXX-2. Subjects who have entered SCP-XXXX-2 have reported an overwhelming feeling of calmness and content upon entering, and express a motivation to stay within SCP-XXXX-2. Within 2 to 4 hours, the subject's speech becomes slurred similar to the speech of an intoxicated person, frequently speaking about the state of happiness that they are in or other such positive phrases. Subjects often state that they see close relatives or loved ones within SCP-XXXX-2, despite the impossibility of their presence there. The subject also begins to breathe more deeply, and at a slower rate; their heartbeat begins to slow as well. Subjects who stay within SCP-XXXX-2 for an extended period of time face the risk of heart failure as the rate of their heartbeat begins to slow beyond a level capable of keeping the subject alive. The shortest duration of time this has occurred in has been only 3 hours, but has also taken as long as 8 hours.

Due to the difficulty of removing test subjects from SCP-XXXX-2, no further human testing on SCP-XXXX-2 has been authorized.
