Special Containment procedures: Any Documents or surfaces upon which instances of SCP XXXX exist are to be confiscated, catalogued, and destroyed as soon as possible. SCP XXXX in its uncontained state primarily exists as handwritten text, pictures, and spoken word of mouth. As it stands, the only safe mediums to contain SCP XXXX in are printed text and audio files. If instances of SCP XXXX are found to directly reference the existence of the Foundation or other SCPs, Quarantine zones are to be established in preparation for Operation 414-Ojibwe.

Foundation personnel who quote SCP XXXX outside of expressed interest of maintaining any relevant audio logs are to be quarantined and administered amnestics. Foundation personnel reciting SCP XXXX as requested by researchers are to undergo psychological evaluation and be administered amnestics if deemed necessary.

Instances of SCP XXXX-1 are to be terminated immediately or quarantined if possible due to their infectious nature. Prolonged periods of quarantine are ill advised as it allows instances of SCP XXXX-1 to create more instances of SCP XXXX. Containment personnel are to avoid prolonged periods of eye contact with instances of SCP XXXX-1 as it makes them more susceptible to SCP XXXX-2’s influence.

Any instance of SCP XXXX-2 is to be corralled away from its congregation by any means necessary. Upon separating it from instances SCP XXXX-1 it is to be rendered immobile and placed in a mobile containment unit until it is brought to an appropriate humanoid containment cell. SCP XXXX-2 does not require food or oxygen. It has not been observed to breach containment unless several instances of SCP XXXX-1 manifest outside of its cell. During such an occurrence it will rapidly deteriorate until expired and manifest again using an instance of SCP XXXX-1.

Description: SCP XXXX is a memetic infohazard that actively attempts to create a congregation by propagating infectious information about a phenomenon henceforth referred to as "Salvation". SCP XXXX typically attempts to replicate itself using any known written or spoken format created through motor functions with or without the use of tools. This means that SCP XXXX almost exclusively exists in hand printed text and spoken word of mouth. SCP XXXX appears to be inert if preserved in a typed format or audio file.

Individuals reading or hearing SCP XXXX for the first time experience audiovisual hallucinations and are compelled to keep reading or listening to it. Its infectious memetic properties typically manifest in the form of an individual speaking or writing phrases associated with SCP XXXX after reading and comprehending it. An example of the most common vernacular used to spread SCP XXXX can be found at the bottom of this document.

Under atypical circumstances, SCP XXXX will attempt to replicate itself by possessing the body of any individual who has read or heard the vernacular. This possession is not malicious, and it may only happen if the individual actively desires to no longer possess knowledge of their own mortality, insignificance, or any similarly distressing information associated with death or humanity's existence being completely eradicated. If any individual actively seeks "Salvation", they will undergo a nearly instantaneous psychological breakdown and recovery. This period has been observed happening as fast as nine seconds. Upon recovery from their psychological breakdown their pupils will begin to radiate with a faint white light. From this point onward the infected individual is to be referred to as an instance of SCP XXXX-1 and is considered lost as there are no known methods of reversing this process. All instances of SCP XXXX-1 will begin to quote phrases associated to SCP XXXX’s vernacular to nearby humans and attempt to write about it with whatever means they have at their disposal. In large concentrations of SCP XXXX-1 instances, SCP XXXX-2 will also manifest.

SCP XXXX-2 is a large humanoid figure created from a mutated SCP XXXX-1. It stands at 2.3 meters tall and has a distinctly feminine physique. Its body is covered in handlike appendages, each of which seems to be attached to a long and elastic arm which wraps around the entity as if it were some sort of cloth or garb. One arm reaches up around its neck and across the left eye, but it remains elastic and capable of motor function like all other arms. Its skin resembles marble or ivory and its long hair seems to absorb all light. Its eyes radiate a piercing white light, but its hair seems to absorb this light in its entirety. It has been observed to alter its host body to become the same humanoid entity regardless of the hosts previous age, sex, and ethnicity.

SCP XXXX-2 will also quote the vernacular, but displays different recruitment tactics than that of SCP XXXX-1. It will begin to deviate from the standard vernacular to try to coax, bargain, or otherwise convince humans within line of sight to seek and accept its "Salvation". SCP XXXX-2 also seems to cater its dialogue to each individual it communicates with, and probes each person’s mind for fears or grievances to appeal to. When speaking to experienced Foundation personnel, it will play off of any repressed fears they may have of SCPs they have encountered or learned about.

In the event of SCP XXXX-2 observing behavior it deems aggressive, it will begin to unwrap its arms from itself and stretch them out to touch the heads of whomever is currently being aggressive. Upon making contact with a person’s head, it will convert them into an instance of SCP XXXX-1. While in this retaliatory state, SCP XXXX-2 will telepathically communicate with every person within 20 meters and urge them to cease their aggressive actions. If it sustains damage while attempting to pacify people in this state, it will use its additional arms for rapid locomotion and pursue all aggressors until it has converted them or been rendered immobile. SCP XXXX-2 has been reported to retain telepathic abilities while its body was almost completely destroyed. Reportedly, SCP XXXX-2 does not always speak with a woman's voice and has been described as vaguely familiar, soothing, and inviting.
