SCP-198 в своєму теперішньому вигляді

Об'єкт №: SCP-198

Клас об'єкта: Евклід

Особливі умови зберігання: SCP-198 зберігається в захищеної камері на Зоні-██, яка охороняється озброєною вартою для запобігання любого несанкціонованого доступу. SCP-198 слід зберігати під 24-часовим відеоспостереженням в герметичному та запечатаному сейфі (розмір 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 метрів), а до ключа, який слід зберігати в захищеному місці, мають доступ лише співробітники з рівнем допуску не менш третього рівня. За жодних обставин працівникам Фонду забороняється торкатись SCP-198. Будь-яка взаємодія з SCP-198 повинна виконуватись лише за допомогою віддалених роботехничних пристроїв або піддослідного персоналу класу D.

В світі інциденту 198-A та 198-B, клас об'єкту був підвищено до Евкліда, та було стверджено Протокол Збереження 198. Після того випадку SCP-198 слід зберігати у своєї камері на чаші цифрових ваг, які підключені до системи попередження, яку обладнано резервними системами живлення. Які-нибудь відхилення показань індикатора від ваги SCP-198 свідчать про порушення умов збереження, і у разі їх виникнення Керівництво Зони повинно негайно ввести у дію Протокол Збереження 198, якій більш докладно описан нижче.

Опис: SCP-198 приймало багато різних форм з моменту постановки на збереження до Фонду у 19██. SCP-198 спостерігалась у таких різних формах, як чашка з пінополістиролу, скляну пивну пляшка марки █████████, алюмінієві банки з напоями марок ██████ та ████-████, великогабаритної скляні чашки з написами "Раз текіла, два текіла, три текіла, підлога", пластикова пляшка для води з частково відірваною етикеткою █████, і [ДАНІ ВИДАЛЕНО]. В усіх своїх формах SCP-198 завжди виявляється частково наповненою очікуваною рідиною, яка очікується від відповідної судини.

На поточний час SCP-198 має вигляд звичайної білої фарфорової кавової кружки з синіми вертикальними смугами, рівномірно розміщеними по зовнішньої поверхні. нинішня форма позбавлена будь-яких маркувань виробника або будь-яких інших ознак. Об'єкт демонструє здатність протистояти всім спробам його знищити або відділити фрагмент для подальшого аналізу. У неактивному стані SCP-198 містить 240 миллилитров рідини - рівно стільки може вміщати в себе стандартна кавова кружка.

Anomalous behavior does not manifest until a live human being grasps SCP-198 to hold it. Approximately 2 - 5 seconds after the SCP is held, it will instantly bond itself through unknown, albeit painful means to the handler’s hand or hands. Test subjects have reported the pain of bonding with SCP-198 as a “searing” or “fiery” sensation, though no heat can be detected by outside observers or instruments. The use of gloves or other barriers between the object and the hand does not prevent the bonding process so long as the subject can still grip SCP-198. Extensive testing has revealed that the bond appears to be at the molecular level and is permanent until the death of its holder. To date, no means have been found to break the bond including cutting or severing the fingers or hand of the holder as any wounds below the wrist of the test subject heal instantaneously. Further proposed testing of the range of healing up the handler’s arm is pending approval.

Once bonded, any liquid inside SCP-198 will disappear and the container will inexplicably begin to fill from the bottom-up with a fluid or a semi-solid material, stopping only once it reaches the top of the container. The liquid or semi-solid is different for each holder, but it has to date been a bodily fluid or human excretion in each test instance. Such instances have included human saliva, sweat, blood, bile, mucus, urine, feces, and [DATA EXPUNGED] as well as combinations of two or more of these.

Once SCP-198 has filled, the holder will undergo rapid dehydration and/or emaciation, becoming increasingly malnourished to the point of death, which usually occurs within 24 hours if nothing is done to prevent it. Ingestion of standard foods, liquids, or I.V.-supplied nutrients does nothing to reverse or slow this process. Testing has revealed that the only means by which the subject can gain nourishment is by consuming the contents of SCP-198; however, the constant rate of dehydration and emaciation remains the same, forcing the test subject to consume vast quantities of the excretions almost constantly to remain alive. As the contents are consumed or – as is often the case – dumped out of the container, SCP-198 will continue to refill itself automatically. Test subjects have lasted as long as 70 hours by consuming the excretions before finally succumbing to exhaustion or refusing to consume any more of the contents, which invariably leads to death.

Upon expiration of the handler, the bond with SCP-198 is broken and the object can once again be manipulated. In approximately 75% of test instances, SCP-198 will disappear once the bond is broken and reappear almost instantly on a nearby flat surface, seemingly with a preference for tables or shelves within the same room, and take on a new form. Approximately 90% of these reappearances of SCP-198 is within the general vicinity of the now deceased handler, but several times the object has been observed to reappear in nearby containment rooms, observation rooms, and in one case [DATA EXPUNGED]. Due to the catastrophic nature of that incident, extreme care is to be taken when in proximity to SCP-198’s containment or testing room. Foundation personnel are urged not to bring with them any beverages or containers within 100 m of SCP-198’s containment room even when the object is not actively being researched.

SCP-198 was acquired by the Foundation from an underground bunker in ███████, Germany, after the bunker’s accidental discovery by construction workers. Reports of strange activity and deaths among the construction company regarding this bunker brought the object to Foundation attention. Agent ██████, upon responding to the location, discovered several deceased and grossly emaciated corpses, both recent and some quite old. Unaware of the nature of their deaths or the SCP in question, Agent ██████ sealed off the area and awaited back-up. It was then that the nature of the SCP object revealed itself as the Agent mistakenly grabbed what appeared to be an unopened bottle of water from a table at the construction site. Backup arrived to find an extremely agitated Agent ██████ vomiting and struggling to remove from his hand a cup full of fresh [DATA EXPUNGED]. Agent ██████ later self-terminated during location clean-up.

Incident 198-A:

Date: ██-██-20██
Location: Site-██
Description: At approximately 2:15 PM, Researcher John ██████, who was working in an observation room adjacent to SCP-198’s containment room, reached for what he thought to be his thermos of iced tea only to discover he was firmly bonded to what appeared to be SCP-198. Immediately, Researcher ██████ notified Site Supervisors who, upon inspection of containment room 198, discovered that SCP-198 was indeed missing from its case. At least 3 months had passed since the last experiment had been conducted on SCP-198 without incident. Researcher ██████ was interviewed by Site staff and was kept alive by consuming the contents of SCP-198 for 31 hours before finally refusing to drink the contents any longer.

Incident 198-B:

Date: ██-██-20██
Location: Site-██
Description: At approximately 8:00 AM, Security Guard Albert ████████ stopped to get a cup of coffee from a break room later determined to be located three floors underneath and two hallways over from SCP-198’s containment room. The guard found himself bonded to SCP-198 when he attempted to grab a bottle of dairy creamer from the break room refrigerator. Once again Site Supervisors were notified of a potential containment breach and discovered SCP-198’s case to be empty. Guard ████████ was interviewed and chose to self-terminate rather than consume any of the contents of SCP-198.

Immediately after Incident 198-B, Site Supervisors determined that the Object Class should be raised to Euclid and Containment Protocol 198 was created to handle future containment breaches.

Containment Protocol 198:

Containment Protocol 198 is to be executed immediately by Site Supervisors after a containment breach of SCP-198 is detected. In the event that the alarm attached to SCP-198’s scale is sounded, Site-██ is to be locked down and all personnel are to immediately avoid any beverage containers and evacuate the facility until SCP-198 can be located and properly secured.

Experiment log of Dr. ███████ on SCP-198 testing various manifestations of its anomalous properties

Notes: Testing on SCP-198 is to be done outside of its containment room in a secure experimentation room. SCP-198 is to be placed via robotic means on a plain table in the center of the otherwise empty room. During experimentation, all Foundation personnel are to remotely observe either via surveillance camera or adjacent observation room behind a secure, plexiglass window. At no time should any Foundation personnel enter the experimentation room while experiments are being conducted. Armed guards and clean-up crews will be posted outside the experimentation room and will not enter until the test subject has expired.

Experiment 198-A-1

Date: ██-██-████
Procedure: Object is observed to have the form of a small glass of water. Class D personnel instructed to enter room and touch SCP-198 with his finger, but ordered not to hold or pick up the object.
Results: No bonding takes place and Class D personnel is unaffected.

Experiment 198-A-2

Date: ██-██-████
Procedure: Same Class D personnel is instructed to pick up SCP-198.
Results: Class D personnel screams in surprise as the bonding process takes place. Test subject immediately begins to try and pry SCP-198 from his hand. Test subject ordered to calm down and describe the contents of SCP-198:

Dr. ███████: Please describe the contents of the object in your hand.

Test Subject: What the ████ is going on?! I can’t get it off! [Liquid is seen spilling from SCP-198 as the test subject flails around.]

Dr. ███████: Yes, we are aware of the situation. Please calm down and describe the contents of the object in your hand.

[D Class personnel is seen to cautiously sniff the contents of SCP-198.]

Test Subject: Is that ████?! Oh god, that’s disgusting, man! [Test subject stumbles slightly and falls to one knee at this point.] Doc? I don’t feel so good, man.

Dr. ███████: Please describe what you’re feeling right now.

Test Subject: I… I feel weak. Tired. Thirsty, too. What’s going on? Can I get some water, man?
Dr. ███████: I'm sorry, I cannot do that. But perhaps the contents in your hand…?
Test Subject: Are you ███████ kidding me, man?! No ███████ way!
Dr. ███████: Suit yourself.

Approximately 2 hours into the experiment, the test subject is observed to curse loudly before gulping down the contents of SCP-198. Test subject periodically drinks from SCP-198 until finally succumbing to exhaustion and expiring 29 hours into the experiment. Subsequent autopsy determines the contents of the test subject's stomach to be mostly human urine. DNA profile on the urine came back inconclusive and with no known match in our database. Upon death of the test subject, SCP-198 unbonded, disappeared, and returned to the table in the form of a large, half-filled plastic pitcher of what appears to be ice and lemonade.

Experiment 198-A-3

Date: ██-██-████
Procedure: Class D personnel instructed to enter room and don surgical gloves placed on the table next to SCP-198. Once the test subject is wearing the gloves, subject is instructed to pick up SCP-198 (still in lemonade pitcher form) and pour herself a glass.
Results: Test subject is observed to use both hands to lift the pitcher to pour a drink. Once again, Class D personnel shouts in surprise as the bonding process takes place despite the gloves and appears to have both hands bonded to SCP-198. Test subject is highly agitated and clearly in pain.

Test Subject: Ow! Owowow! It burned me!

Dr. ███████: It would appear that both of your hands are stuck to the container. Is that the case?

Test Subject: Yeah! Does it look like I'm not stuck?! [Test subject is visibly straining to pull her hands apart from SCP-198.]

Dr. ███████: Can you remove your hands from the gloves?

Test Subject: No! They're stuck to this damn thing, t—! [Test subject pauses mid-sentence and stares at the pitcher in her hands. Seconds later, test subject is seen vomiting violently and falling to her knees. A brownish, semi-solid mass spills onto the floor from SCP-198.]

Dr. ███████: Can you please describe the contents of the pitcher, please?

Test Subject: ████! ████! ████!

Test subject continued vomiting for approximately ten minutes before collapsing to the floor. Test subject became uncooperative at this point and would not respond to the researcher's requests. Security guards are instructed to enter the experimentation room and terminate test subject. Testing concluded that the substance in question was human feces. Again, the DNA profile of the substance was inconclusive and matchless in our database. Upon death of the test subject, SCP-198 unbonded and remained in its lemonade pitcher form, once again half-filled with what appeared to be lemonade and ice but did not teleport back to the table surface.
