Special Containment Procedures: [DATA MISSING]

Description: [DATA MISSING]

December 3, 2036

The air around me is as still and as cold as a corpse. I thought that I would've gotten used to it by now, but I'm still freezing. Everything in here is so cold, right down to the colors of the walls; a pasty white, slightly blurred by an ashen tone I have yet to identify. It smells like ice and moss in here. It's almost like I'm outside, letting snow sprinkle down upon me. I can almost taste the snowflakes.

But I digress. I have work to do.

My eyes groggily flutter open as I lift my head from my desk, trails of saliva hanging from my mouth like wires. My hair looks like a bird's nest, with tufts of it just barely hanging in my vision. Everything around me is blurry, save for my monitor, which is flashing the usual message at me:

"7438 ITEMS AWAIT YOUR REVIEW."

Soon enough, my vision clears up. It's not perfect, but I can make out some small details in the distance. I wave my hand in front of my face. Yep, I can still see my fingerprints. The most visible thing is my monitor, as usual. I groan and yawn simultaneously as I scoot my seat closer to the computer. I wriggle my finger's around, hearing each of them crack, and click on the message.

"PLEASE LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE RED DOT. YOU WILL BE EXPOSED TO A TKA/913/PLYMOUTH-HKY "JADE EUROPA" MEMETIC SCANNING AGENT SHORTLY IN ORDER TO CONFIRM YOUR IDENTITY."

Ugh, god. Not the identity test. It has been a few days since I had to take it. I guess the system actually remembered me back then. Sure enough, a small, scarlet point appears on the screen. Reluctantly, I look right at it, and I can almost feel it staring back at me. I can sense that fuzzy feeling right in-between my eyes; that strange sensation when someone's watching you. Finally, the screen flashes thousands of images in the course of approximately 6.78 nanoseconds. Normally your brain wouldn't be able to pick up any of them, but this damn meme makes sure they're packed in tight.

I squint as a migraine flushes over me. It pushes down into my skull, knocking like an enraged police officer. I swear every time I go through the test a little bit of my brain juice gets squeezed out of me by some invisible hand. Eventually it passes, but god damn if the impact still doesn't leave me dizzy.

"SCP-001 ADMINISTERED. OPENING FILE 1…"

As I wait for the first item to load, I still can't get my mind off of that test. It's the only way I can survive. This substance — "SCP-001" — is what it feeds me. It keeps me nourished, it keeps me healthy, and it keeps me sane. With it, I don't need to leave. I've never tried to leave. I don't like the feeding process, and I don't enjoy the food. But it helps me. And that's all I need now.

That machine should have me embedded in its code like a leech by now, but it always forgets me. Maybe it's just to feed me more SCP-001, but… I get where it's coming from. I can barely remember who I am.

Finally, the page loads.

I think they are gone now. Cannot see clearly. Background is now blurry, can only see things 3 feet in frotn front of me.
Snow is getting worse. Can barely see the village but we are almost there. Think we were sighted back a few miles there.

Page 20

We arrive at the village earlier. Locals didn't like to see us clearly. But one kind man let us sleep in his house.
It is not warm, but it has light. Man has wife and three children. They are very nice family. We ate some canned beans they offered us. I ate like a dog.
I ask them why other locals look at us badly. They say we attract [INFORMATION WITHDRAWN]. We hear that all the time.
When we sleep, I hear creaking outside. Gordon grabbed his gun and went outside. In morning he still not come back. Instead [INFORMATION WITHDRAWN] was in snow outside house. Man tells us to leave. Locals force us to leave.

Is the following media eligible for complete destruction?

YES | NO

I blink twice when I finish the document. I look to my left, then my right. I don't feel particularly nauseous, either. So I click no.

"1 ITEM HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO THE PERMANENT RECORDS. OPENING FILE 2…"

The next fifteen or so files aren't anything special. Just some more incoherent ramblings, journal entries, and novels. I admit that I got a bit of a laugh after reading some poetry that managed to get in. None of them were elligible for destruction.

As I went through the next thousand files, I began to grow tired. I was able to skim through at least six or seven every thirty minutes, but nothing of note came out of them. All of these files were clean. In fact, I can't recall the last time I got a bad file. Hell, I'm guessing someone else gets them. Well, that is if there is anyone else.

Finally, I finish the last file; something about a house crumbling for no reason. It, of course, was clean. I lean back in my chair and stretch, filled with a hazy sense of attainment.

"0 FILES REMAINING. ADMINISTERING SCP-001."

I suddenly feel warm. This happens every time I finish all of the documents. I take it that it's some kind of award that comes with doing my job. It's nice while it lasts.

"ORDER COMPLETE." And without so much as a goodbye, the monitor goes dark. Finally, my shift is over. I close my eyes and gently rest my head against my desk, resting both of my hands under it.

Sometimes I question where those files come from. The discovery section is almost always the shortest, and has little to no detail thrown into it. It's always either found on the ground or on a computer somewhere. I don't let it bother me, but it would be nice to know where they came from. But I suppose that isn't what I'm here to do. I have to make sure they're clean.

I can still remember my first day. Well, sort of: I woke up in this room, sitting where I always do. In front of me was a peice of paper. It told me how to analyze the files and how to test them for hazards. The rest of it was really just a blur, as is with every other day I'm here. I forget a lot of things, but I would like to know what those things are.

But I digress. I need to sleep. I have work tomorrow.
