An untitled painting by notable post-impressionist Hugo Demóre, c. 1879

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: The appearance of SCP-XXXX instances is wholly unpredictable, and thus far has proven impossible to prevent by any known means. However, because information about SCP-XXXX is self-concealing, no measures are necessary to take with regards to public knowledge of its existence.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for variety of anomalous entities comprised of a fruit or edible plant attached to a functioning human body part. SCP-XXXX instances are sentient and ambulatory, rolling/hopping in order to re-position themselves. SCP-XXXX instances manifest under a specific set of conditions relating to individuals hereby designated as SCP-XXXX-A. These individuals can be of any age range or demographic, but share a number of recurring traits such as an artistic or creative background, a dissociative lifestyle, and often a combination of symptoms found in psychiatric patients with depression and anxiety. Many SCP-XXXX-A instances are unsuccessful in their creative pursuits, and more often than not, are unable to provide for themselves financially because of it.

When an instance of SCP-XXXX manifests, its respective SCP-XXXX-A will be the only sapient creature capable of perceiving it or interacting with it physically until it demanifests. While SCP-XXXX is present, SCP-XXXX-A instances have reported feeling a general sense of encouragement and heightened self-worth, along with a supposed burst of creative energy. Through whatever means the individual finds compelling, SCP-XXXX-A will proceed to artistically interpret SCP-XXXX's presence, dedicating itself fully to the completion of its piece. Once it is satisfied with its work, SCP-XXXX will demanifest. As soon as SCP-XXXX is gone, SCP-XXXX-A will be subject to a sensation comparable to Class-G amnestics whereby all memories of the SCP-XXXX instance and the situations surrounding it are perceived as a dream or hallucinatory state.

Addendum 02 - The Warning Bell:
Due to the self-concealing nature of SCP-XXXX, proper documentation of it would likely not have been possible without recovered notes from FP-194 (“The Warning Bell”). Though it is currently unknown how, FP-194 was able to study the nature of SCP-XXXX without being affected by its antimemetic properties. They were able to confirm certain aspects of the entities' existence that the Foundation does not currently possess the means to verify.

The Warning Bell


Since our last memorandum, Corvus and Spitiron have journeyed toward the surrounding towns in the hopes of determining some reason for the increase in artistic depiction of these aforementioned chimeras of man and produce in unnatural synchrony. Such explanation has yet to arrive, though those particular painters who composed a piece of these dreamed beasts expressed the experience of a fugue or wakeless manor with abnormal congruence.
