Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a small lockbox located at Site 19. The lockbox is currently inside Dr. Rembrand’s office.

Request to view a full record of SCP-XXXX-1's manifestations must be approved by Dr.Rembrand and the current on-site Director, due to SCP-XXXX-1 potentially containing sensitive Foundation information.

Requests for testing by Foundation Personnel is restricted to Personnel with Level 2 Security Clearance or higher. Any SCP-XXXX related request for professional use not directly related to testing the properties of SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX-1, or SCP-XXXX-A is restricted to Level 3 Personnel.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 15cm x 23cm x 3cm navy-blue hardcover book. It shares no differences from the standard format used by most publishing firms located within the Unites States. SCP-XXXX’s cover contains no text or markings. The back of the book contains a small paragraph that has publication information relating to a 'Mnemosyne Story Publication.' No current records confirm the existence of such a publication firm. The year of publication listed on the back of SCP-XXXX is ██-██-2000. Current investigations into locating the aforementioned publication firm are ongoing, though not currently a priority.

SCP-XXXX-1 refers to the last page of SCP-XXXX. The page has the header "Author's Note:" written in Times New Roman font. The rest of the page is entirely blank. SCP-XXXX-1 entries share common thematic and stylistic elements. It is currently understood that SCP-XXXX-1 is written by a singular entity, hereby classified as SCP-XXXX-A.

SCP-XXXX-A refers to an unknown anomalous entity, seemingly responsible for the creation of SCP-XXXX, and the 'writer' of SCP-XXXX-1. Whilst SCP-XXXX-A appears to be sentient, the Foundation has no evidence to conclude that SCP-XXXX-A exists outside of SCP-XXXX. Investigations into locating a possible physical manifestation of SCP-XXXX-A is currently ongoing. Attempts to communicate with SCP-XXXX-A have been met with failure. [See Addendum XXXX-1.]

SCP-XXXX’s anomalous effects trigger whenever an individual reads SCP-XXXX. Upon opening, the first page contains the title of any novel published from the year 2000 and onward. The rest of SCP-XXXX manifests the contents of said novel. The title has consistently been typed in a Times New Roman font. No other markings exist on SCP-XXXX’s front page.

The contents and title of SCP-XXXX will not shift or change until the individual reads the book in it's entirety. However, if another individual attempts to read SCP-XXXX, they will have a different story and title manifest. This cognitive anomaly has been observed to occur to all subjects.

Testing has not found any other anomalous qualities relating to the text of SCP-XXXX's given novel. Due to this, SCP-XXXX was originally thought to be an anomalous item that did not require formal designation by the Foundation. However, during a routine anomalous object inspection, Researcher Rembrand observed a secondary effect in SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-1 changes its text to include comments on a personal aspect or private problem regarding the reader. SCP-XXXX-1 will often begin with a brief summary of the problem or the issue pertaining to the individual. SCP-XXXX-1 will then offer a comment or advice regarding the problem. [See Experimentation Log XXXX-1]

SCP-XXXX-1 entries seem to follow similar stylistic and voice patterns, heavily suggesting that they are written by a common entity, currently designated as SCP-XXXX-A. SCP-XXXX-1 entries are visible only to the original reader; however, cameras and surveillance devices can view these entries. The current theory regaurding SCP-XXXX-1 is that the object contains minor memetic qualities.

When the instructions given by SCP-XXXX-1 are followed, the issue or problem pertaining to the reader will resolve in as peaceful and logical way as possible. If SCP-XXXX cannot resolve the issue given the current circumstances, it will result to the manifestation of objects or sometimes people in order to solve the given problem. [See Experimentation Log XXXX-1]

To date, a total of ██ potential K-Class scenarios have resolved due to SCP-XXXX. ██ anomalous objects have been documented, and several Foundation disputes have been resolved. Thaumiel Classification is currently pending.

Addendum XXXX-1: On █/█/█, Researcher Rembrand was seen on surveillance camera retrieving SCP-XXXX from its containment. After the span of one month it had not been returned. An agent was sent to confront Researcher Rembrand and attempt to retrieve SCP-XXXX. Rembrand quickly admitted to taking SCP-XXXX from its containment. The Agent confiscated the object, and returned it to it's lockbox. However, upon further investigation, it was found that Researcher Rembrand had managed to initiate conversation with SCP-XXXX-A.
