Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid, pending Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-XXXX, no active containment efforts are currently underway; however, SCP-XXXX-MTF has been formed to permanently suppress attempts by SCP-XXXX-Personnel instances. SCP-XXXX-Site is currently the only known location currently affected by SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Type-III Semantic Sinkhole affecting the concept of its designation, SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX originated from some point within SCP-XXXX-Site; however, the original source of SCP-XXXX is currently unknown, due to the nature of SCP-XXXX.

Any physical entity, object, or location directly involved in the active containment of SCP-XXXX will become additional SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX refers to the collective whole of objects affected by SCP-XXXX. As a result, several Mobile Task Force units deployed to suppress SCP-XXXX became SCP-XXXX (Now identified as SCP-XXXX-MTF).

It was soon discovered that specific subdesignations for SCP-XXXX-affected entities are able to be used; items referred to using an altered designation are capable of being identified as individual instances, which has served to significantly improve morale among SCP-XXXX-Personnel.

A partial log of subdesignations are below:
SCP-XXXX-Site: The Site affected by SCP-XXXX. The entirety of SCP-XXXX is contained within Site-SCP-XXXX.
SCP-XXXX-MTF: Mobile Task Force units currently in place, actively suppressing attempts by rogue SCP-XXXX-Staff, as well as attempts to maintain morale among SCP-XXXX-Personnel.
SCP-XXXX-Personnel: Personnel involved in the containment of SCP-XXXX at the time of the event.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Any recovered instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be analyzed for notable deviations in typical appearance. Once the object has been cataloged, it is to be dismantled, as the individual components are safe to incinerate.

Currently, 12 identical instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are contained in a Low Value Item Storage Vault, as well as an additional 3 abnormal instances. The Site's break room can be used to generate new instances in the event that the current number of instances in containment is reduced to 10 or lower.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon occurring when a particular arrangement of furniture is formed within an enclosed space. Arrangement is specified in Document XXXX-01. So long as the furniture is placed within an enclosed space, and an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 is not already present anywhere within the room, the environment the furniture is placed in does not appear to have any effect on the phenomenon. Due to the furniture used, the most likely scenario leading to accidental SCP-XXXX manifestation is when furniture is being moved into a living room area.

As furniture is in the process of being moved into the arrangement, SCP-XXXX-1 will appear to instantaneously manifest in the far left corner of the arrangement, relative to the location of the furniture used in manifesting the object. Rearranging furniture with little to no alteration in the position of SCP-XXXX-1 will result in the object demanifesting in a similar manner.

Each instance of SCP-XXXX-1 resembles a saddle stool, approximately 0.6 meters in height. The vast majority of instances are identical, constructed with polished wood and white plastic components, though several appear to have been constructed using hand-crafted wood components. SCP-XXXX-1 has a circular hole 10 cm in diameter located on the "top" of the object. This hole appears to lead to a rectangular enclosed space of internal volume identical to the dimensions of the object's exterior.

The walls of this space are typically made from polished wood. Objects can be stored within this negative space, and will affect the total weight of the object. Several instances of SCP-XXXX-1 have been found to have been disinfected at the time of manifestation with varying forms of commercial disinfectants.

In some cases, small objects are found within instances of SCP-XXXX. These objects occasionally possess mild spatial anomalies, and include:

- Individual, deceased Musca domestica1.
- United States currency, typically in the form of dimes and quarters.
- 1 object presumed to be a form of tubular key; object appears to be heavier towards the head than mass and density would seem to permit, leading researchers to assume some part of the mechanism exists in four-dimensional space.
- Metal screws, notably lighter than their mass and density should allow.
- 3 small tracking devices, each found in the next 3 instances of SCP-XXXX-1 to manifest. These devices have yet to be seen since. Attempts to trace the signal indicate that the source is out of range.

Addendum XXXX-01: As of [DATE], unique instances of SCP-XXXX-1 have dramatically increased in probability of manifesting.

Addendum XXXX-02: A hand-crafted instance was found containing a small, handwritten note taped to the inner wall. This note was written in Spanish, and has been transcribed below.

To whoever is taking our products,
I don't know if anyone's gonna see this, or where any of you are, or even if there actually is anyone taking these things, but please just… stop. Some of us have kids, and if these things keep disappearing, we'll have to shut down. And I really need this job.

Tales

See this hole.

It's a big hole. If you were to stand on the lip of it, you wouldn't be able to see the other side.
And it was all hand-dug.

The hole never really levels out; at some point, it begins to split into several, smaller holes. These holes, in turn, split off further into more and more holes.

Every hole is unique; some diggers dig one single, very deep hole, while others choose to dig many shallow holes. Many an amateur has dug a poorly-dug hole, leading to fellow diggers re-filled them. However, they rarely insult the digger for their lack of skill, and instead offer to show them what they did wrong.

Dozens of people enter the hole every day, ready to dig their own holes.

Some people choose not to dig, and simply observe and comment on those who do; others make plans to dig the biggest holes their fellow diggers have ever seen, and simply can never bring themselves to execute these plans.



Extras:

Attention Lattice- A piece of information attached to a Base that draws a viewer's attention. A Type-1 only draws attention while it is displayed, and the viewers can still be distracted; Type-2 will cause viewers to tune out outside distractions, and Type-3 will embed itself in the subject's mind, enabling the subject to be more receptive to the Base medium upon re-exposure, even in the absence of an Attention Lattice.
Magnet- Spontaneously generating, tiny ideas that experience an inversely exponential memetic growth; the smaller they are, the more they are build onto and the more receptive people are to the idea. As more is added onto them, they slow down until eventually stopping. Due to the anomalous nature of these ideas, they will often evolve into some other form of metafictional anomaly.

Cognitohazard Types:
Passive: Cognitohazard could, theoretically, be conceived by any individual without needing any outside source.
Active: Requires sensory exposure to cognitohazardous information.
Invasive: Cognitohazard does not require prior knowledge or awareness to any degree in order to affect people, a la SCP-426.



Vague shit I'm pulling out of my ass:
Lamb with burnt wool and tumorous growths. Face is blank, with an oversized, vaguely-human mouth. It follows people with considerable trauma. It acts friendly and tries to get people to pet it, but its appearance typically exasperates their trauma.
