Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in it's original carrying case in a standard containment locker in Site-57A / High Security Anomalous Storage Area 3 with it's ink ribbon removed and stored in a different locker. Due to it's secondary effect, access is restricted.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an Olivetti Studio 45 typewriter. The object is capable of giving it's user the ability to write succesful works, regardless of the actual writing ability of the user.

The stories written using SCP-XXXX all reference a feminine figure, that in the story is considered almost divine, but never makes a direct appearance in it, only referenced by the characters in the tale.

It's not possible to write different stories, the user falling in a state of trance until the completion of the work.

These tales have all a common structure, revolving around an artist's search for a meaning in it's life or the recognition of his talent, and his meeting with the figure, who then becomes his muse, giving him a typewriter with SCP-XXXX's same abilities, leading him to success. The artist, though, blinded by his fame, neglects the muse, who then leaves him alone. The artist tries to regain her affection but failes, always ending with his suicide.

The last chaper of the book is always the same in all the works, and is written by the muse's perspective:

All the users, after completing a tale, die in a fucking gory mess in about 24 hours.
