Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures {{Outdated}}: SCP-XXXX is contained at the site of its discovery as a provisional area under the purview of Site-14. At present, act procedures consist of eradicating any environmental stimulus which threatens to interact with it; to this end, it is currently housed with a temperature-static containment chamber. If SCP-XXXX expands, any matter within its vicinity should be removed to prevent interfacing.

Special Containment Procedures {{Interim}}: SCP-XXXX's containment area is currently being renovated to incorporate the findings of Site-14 and Project Agares. Controlled fractal agents embedded immediately outside its currently occupied zone will act as a conceptual barrier to its expansion.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a semi-physical fractal body capable of expansion into physical objects. SCP-XXXX's initial size is unknown, but it currently occupies a 50km2 area above a Scottish moor.

The interfacing process which facilitates its expansion is poorly understood, as it behaves dissimilarly it comparable matevorous anomalies and does not appear to feed on objects it contacts. Rather, the matter composing the object is deconstructed and reconstituted as its base elements into the atmosphere in a gaseous form1 while a new fractal from SCP-XXXX's primary mass occupies the space left by the object.

Visually, SCP-XXXX is a complex web of crystalline fractals which occasionally pulse with white light, which emits from its center. These pulse have been noted to superficially resemble brain signals.

Project Agares: From 2031/10/15 to 2031/06/30, Site-14 executed a targeted research project to replicate SCP-XXXX within a controlled environment. Results were officially not forthcoming, but following the conscriptment of Dr. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ into the project, several anomalous objects were utilized to achieve the desired end. An excerpt of the project's revised charter is included below.

Following the project's conclusion, the replica fractals were introduced to SCP-XXXX to confirm the hypothesis of the research group: upon contact with itself, SCP-XXXX experiences mutual self-termination, equally consuming and regenerating its mass. As such, a bounding around of replica fractal agents to permanently contain SCP-XXXX was commissioned for construction.

The fractal replica produced by Project Agares remains within SCP-XXXX's containment area due to the impracticality of removing it without assimilating mechanical equipment/personnel.

Addendum: Site-14's renovations to SCP-XXXX's provisional area were inspected by containment specialist Elyssa Katterson. During this inspection, SCP-XXXX's defensive regeneration visibly faltered and the Foundation-produced replica agent pierced into center in an attempt at assimilating the entire mass. The agent reacted violently to contact with SCP-XXXX's center, retracting the fractal before metamorphosing into a human brain.

Under the suggestion of Dr. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ, SCP-YYYY was attached to the brainstem and the results were recorded. A partial transcript follows.

She smiled at me, and she said, "I'll stay here for you." And we were the best of friends.

Her name is Elyssa, but her kin ought have named her Raisa, for she is as a rose to me. Our words are brief and rare but we smile when we discover one another again in the hallways. She should not be surprised such that I recognize her in a crowd, for the color of her hair saturates the lot in brilliant red.

But I remember now. She
