Dr. Mueller: Hello, SCP-2212. I’d like to ask you a few questions about your background and goals. Firstly, the October 18 event where we recovered you from. Our sensors detected major reality disruptions consistent with cross-dimensional travel without the assistance of a Way or some other stable path, but there was also seismic activity that our best research suggests should have nothing to do with that. What produced that?

Dr. Mueller: Ah, I don’t think I will be the one to work on that. We’ve learned enough about what you do.

Dr. Mueller: And you’d never want that. Hm, let’s see. Since being taken into Foundation custody, you have precipitated no fewer than three significant containment breach events. Yet despite on several occasions being able to exit the facility while the guards are incapacitated, you stayed. Why?
SCP-2212: Why would I want to leave the Foundation? True, it’s hard for me to exit this chamber without first having to cause a breach, but that’s okay. You all are such excellent scientists, and I love how you never stop digging. There’s no better place for me to be.
Dr. Mueller: There! You talked normally. I’m not sure how; it’s more than just using “I” again, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. No, stop that. It won’t get you anywhere.
Dr. Mueller: Dr. Ricardo? I’m terminating the interview. This isn’t working. Try someone who doesn’t understand what they’re reading, maybe.

Dr. Mueller: If I listen to the sounds, you’re gibbering. I can’t even produce those sounds. But I understand you, which means that you’re in my head and have been there since I walked into the room. That must be how you did that to those guards in your last breach. Shit, we can’t talk to you at all, can we? Okay, you weren’t using “I” and I don’t think you used “a”. Is this some sort of letter substitution? But you sounded so different each time, and you spoke normally once—
Dr. Ricardo: Dr. Mueller, are you okay? Exit the room.

Dr. Mueller: Luis, I’m out. Repeat, terminate the interview. I do not want to ever interact with that fucking thing again. How isn’t it Keter?
