SCP-XXXX, targeting D-█████.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a locked cell at Research Site-76, with access granted to Level 2 personnel or higher. It is recommended that personnel performing tests involving SCP-XXXX have no history of psychological disorder. Counseling is to be made available to any personnel working with SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a tri-folded sheet of standard U.S. Letter-sized copy paper. One of its corners has been torn off, and analysis suggests it is approximately 25 years old. When a subject observes SCP-XXXX, text will begin to emerge on its surface. This text appears to be "written" in regular black ink, and is perceived in the same way by all observers. The subject matter of text appearing on SCP-XXXX is "targeted" toward whomever first observes it for as long as they continue to observe it. If a targeted subject ceases observation of SCP-XXXX, it will begin to target a new subject. If there are no other observing subjects, all text will disappear from SCP-XXXX, and new text will not appear until it is observed again.

Messages displayed by SCP-XXXX tend to be extremely disturbing to the target observer. Immediate reactions are generally not extreme. However, long-term effects of exposure to SCP-XXXX have tended to include acute stress, depression and derealization1. [Explain that it's not memetic.]

Recovery Log: [TEMP]

[Testing logs. "Testing has shown that writing on SCP-XXXX is always in the first language of the target observer, and that SCP-XXXX has no reaction to illiterate observers."]

[STUFF TO HAVE SCP-XXXX TALK ABOUT: "The Nothing [LAST]," "The Hole in the Sky," "Are you sure of which side of the glass you're on?" "If dreams come true, then nightmares must, too," "This is not happening,"[MORE]]

Addendum: [D-class suicide.]
