Welcome to my draft pages. Below I have some ideas I'm working on. If you were linked here from the Drafts and Critiques page, all you have to do is click the tab of the SCP's name that was on my thread. They are organized alphabetically.

I hope you enjoy reading them, and if you'd like you could read a few more.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is an otherwise normal nineteen (19) year-old human male, formerly known as ████ ██████. SCP-XXXX expresses certain characteristics of psychopathy, such as disinhibition, antisocial behaviors, and sadistic tendencies. It is able to conceal these characteristics for long periods of time behind a mask of goodwill and a charming demeanor. These have the effect of disarming individuals and concealing any facets of itself that it deems counterproductive to its goals. This effect does not appear to be anomalous.

SCP-XXXX usually carries around a knife or other similar instrument, deemed SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX does not seem to be able to discern between possible SCP-XXXX-1 objects, and any instance of SCP-XXXX-1 can be replaced with another during sleep or loss of eye-contact without realization by SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX believes that there has only ever been one instance of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX refers to SCP-XXXX-1 as "Lazarus."

SCP-XXXX is unpredictably violent, and will attack and attempt to kill1 any person that provokes it with SCP-XXXX-1. Chances of provocation and violence depend on the mood of SCP-XXXX at the moment, which may be difficult to gauge. SCP-XXXX usually attacks a person that it has known for a while and that it has grown resentment for, but it has attacked Foundation personnel and D subjects indiscriminately before, explaining there was "something about their face."

SCP-XXXX, although showing the aforementioned signs of psychopathy, seems to have the ability to feel remorse and some amount of empathy. SCP-XXXX suffers from chronic anxiety and depression stemming from its childhood, and has reported having nightmares about its violent actions2.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects manifest after it commits murder, when it will show a great desire to rest, and will do so nearby the terminated person. After approximately thirty (30) minutes, SCP-XXXX will wake up again, seemingly in an altered-state of mind. It will then approach the expired victim and begin (some unspeakable horror that I don't know yet) and return to its resting place and continue sleeping uneventfully. The expired victim will reanimate and appear to be completely fine once SCP-XXXX wakes up, without suffering from any ill-effects or visible wounds no matter the amount of trauma committed onto them by SCP-XXXX, as well as no recollection of their death.

SCP-XXXX has explained its murderous leanings as a way to "blow off steam," and has added that "it's not like I'm hurting them."

Acquisition Log: SCP-XXXX was discovered in the town of ████████ after reports of a curious double kidnapping/homicide were intercepted by Foundation personnel. SCP-XXXX was found in his basement by local police, where he had kept two (2) persons hostage for two (2) weeks, evidently killing and reanimating them all throughout the ordeal. The victims, ███ ████ and ████ █████, are currently held in ██████ State Psychiatric Hospital.

Foundation agents were alerted when the victims' stories began to circulate around local news. While proper protocol calls for complete erasure of interaction with an SCP, it was deemed simpler to continue the commitment of the two (2) victimes
