SCP-XXXX.

Item#: SCP-3731

Object class: Neutralised (Formerly Euclid)

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently buried within the coffin of █████ Ryan, UK. SCP-XXXX does not currently posses any anomalous effects. Should any effects be reported, SCP-XXXX is to be reclassified as Euclid and original containment procedures be put into effect.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Brodie model steel combat helmet issued during World War I, confirmed to have been issued to private █████ Ryan, who was confirmed killed in action during World War 11.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties manifest during the time of 11:37am and 1:21pm, Amiens time. During this time, all humans within a certain radius to SCP-XXXX2 will enter a comatose state and experience SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a hallucinogenic state experienced by any personnel within the area of effect of SCP-XXXX during the manifestation of its anomalous properties. Visually, SCP-XXXX-1 resembles the area of Fromelles, France during the time of World War 13. Any video and audio footage attached to affected individuals will record the events that take place in SCP-XXXX-1. This comatose state will last from 11:37am to 1:21pm, Amiens time. Should any person perish inside SCP-XXXX-1, they will immediately resume consciousness4. Wounds sustained inside SCP-XXXX-1 will not persist once individuals resume consciousness, but most individuals will experience symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.

If SCP-XXXX is unable to affect at least seven (7) individuals due to none being within its range, SCP-XXXX's area of effect will begin expanding at speeds ranging from 12cm per hour, to 3m per hour. This expansion of SCP-XXXX's effect is permanent, and will not cease until at least seven (7) individuals would be affected by SCP-XXXX's effect.

Addendum:

Addendum 1: During testing of SCP-3731, a task force was allowed to enter the dream on August ██ 2001. During the test a member of the taskforce reportedly pushed SCP-3731-A out of the way of an incoming shell and into a nearby shell hole. After the ten minutes ended all task force members awoke from the dream and SCP-3731 subsequently vanished from site-██. After thorough searching of site-██ it was discovered that all records of SCP-3731-A’s death had disappeared. 5 days later the death of █████ Bryan was reported on the news. He had apparently survived WW1 and died at the old age of 98. In an account in the book ██████ he talks about how a brave soldier saved him from a falling shell during in the battle of Loos. SCP-3731 was reportedly buried with him upon his death.


Author's Commentary
This is where I put some commentary on my pieces. Don't worry, this will not be kept on the page once I mainlist the work, instead I'll put it on the comment section. This is purely out of universe, and should be treated only as my thoughts and commentary on a piece.

  • When I originally planned to make this piece, it was going to be a German helmet and was going to be titled in some Google translate German.
  • I decided against making it German after seeing Jacobisbatman's title for the piece (Saving Private Bryan).
  • When writing the piece, I decided to change the name from Bryan to Ryan so that I could make the obvious movie nod even more obvious. Yes, I know Saving Private Ryan is set during WW2, shut up.
  • I didn't originally feel like rewriting this piece. In the end, I just said "screw it" and offered to rewrite it.
  • The only reason I made the effects of this item expand if it didn't affect a certain number of people was so that I could add some real suspense/danger to this. It wasn't in Jacobisbatman's original version.
  • I was going to make it so that any wounds that happened during SCP-XXXX-1 would manifest on the actual bodies of people. I felt like that would make this too generic, and since it wasn't in Jacobisbatman's original version, I decided against it.
  • In order to find a specific battle to use, I went on Wikipedia and clicked on random battles during the Somme Offensive until I found one that the British were in and lost. In Jacobisbatman's original version, it was the battle of Loos.
