Flames of Desire
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Kept in an aluminum box lined with any fire retardant material, dimensions 275x225x255 mm

Description: A standard wooden log that when lit aflame, causes anyone who looks at it to fall into a trance-like state, making them desire to reach out towards the fire as if to grab something from it.
Breaking the direct line of sight with the fire causes the state to be broken, the effect does not occur when looking at it while observing it through glass or another medium. The flames do not consume the log, however it can still be damaged.

The effect has lasting consequences, as the more time spent looking directly at the flames, the stronger the desire to retrieve whatever they see within the flames is. This can be from reoccurring thoughts about getting the desire all the way to downright obsession and refusal to do anything else but keep trying to obtaining it.

Size: 100 mm radius, 250 mm long
