Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation webcrawlers are set to identify and flag any triggers for SCP-XXXX online, which will be promptly eliminated.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a series of textual cognitohazards that can be interspersed throughout a text to induce visual and auditory hallucinations on the reading subject, so long as the text matches the requirements for it. These hallucinations are reported to vary from person to person, and appear to be of the subject's own perception of the narrative through the perspective of the protagonist.
Despite these hallucinations, subjects are still capable of reading and navigating the text.

SCP-XXXX-A is the initial trigger for the cognitohazard to occur, and must be used as an introduction to the story and to the main protagonist. Additionally, it provides a simple "base" for instances of SCP-XXXX-B to build off of.

SCP-XXXX-B is a catalyst for the initial trigger that can be placed throughout a text, preferably at even intervals. This allows for the subject to return to a text and still be affected by it.

Requirements for a text to be compatible with SCP-XXXX are as follows:
- Text must be told through a singular, first-person perspective, unless SCP-XXXX-C is used during a character transition.
-Text must be descriptive enough of the environment that a subject can accurately visualize it.
-Reading level must be at or below the reading level of the person reading the story; if the reader becomes confused by a passage and has to reread it, there is a high likelihood that the effect will be canceled.

Anything capable of breaking a reader's immersion into a story has a high likelihood of cancelling the effect, including:
-Confusion about a passage's meaning.
-Excessive spelling or grammatical errors.
-Fourth wall breaks.
-Reader detecting a mistake in the plot, or learning something about the environment that they had not anticipated.
-The death of the character currently being the perspective of the story, or conclusion of the story.
-The reader is distracted by an outside source.

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.
