I'm Going To Rip Your Goddamned Heart Out

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Anomaly Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: The Department of Applied Influence is responsible for attaching and maintaining a negative stigma on the societal practice of lying about ones relationship status, and more specifically on claiming to be in a relationship with a non-existent person.

Social media platforms are to be monitored by BOTNAME for potential activity related to SCP-XXXX instances; should they be detected before their anomalous nature is revealed, they are to be detained or terminated at the discretion of the Senior Researcher for SCP-XXXX and the assigned containment team. Failing this, their activity is to be covered up as a fatal domestic dispute, and used to reinforce the activities of the Department of Applied Influence.

Description: SCP-XXXX instances are humanoid entities that, upon initial manifestation, appear human in almost all measurable regards; the only exception is a mild sense of eeriness or revulsion in some observers consistent with the "Uncanny Valley" effect. The conditions under which SCP-XXXX manifestation occurs are not fully understood, but are confirmed to require at least the following:

  • A person (henceforth referred to as the Trigger) must lie about being in a relationship with another person.
  • This fictional person must live a significant distance from the Trigger (shortest confirmed distance is currently 487km).
  • The lie must be repeated multiple times, and include sufficient detail on the physical appearance of the fictional person that the Trigger can mentally picture what they look like.

Upon manifestation, the SCP-XXXX instance will seek out the Trigger. Once contact is made, the memories of the Trigger are immediately altered such that they believe the relationship with the instance actually exists, and both the SCP-XXXX instance and the Trigger will begin acting accordingly.
