Hey Liv,

I know you'd rather I just summarize it, but I think this one justifies preserving the format. I received (well, traded for) it from a Hand operative; it was enough to make him break deep cover and head for the hills. He must've overpowered the memetic conditioning (somehow); this article certainly doesn't have any antimemetic properties (don't worry, I checked).

Our fair acquaintances have got New York (both ones) locked down; getting this out would've been hard had I not possessed advance knowledge from the accident (ha! lucky me!). Hopefully this article will give you some more boots to use to kick the ones upstairs.



Item #: SCP-2254

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the inherent risks of a broken SCP-2254 cycle, containment primarily focuses on maintaining the integrity and stability of SCP-2254. As SCP-2254's cycle is currently contained within Containment Area 15, and currently poses no threat to civilian or Foundation personnel1, maintenance of proper SCP-2254 cycling is to be considered paramount. As of 4/14/37, testing is to be conducted on the malleability of SCP-2254 cycling under the jurisdiction of Colonel Richards2.

Description: SCP-2254 is an unstable cumulative pseudo-temporal loop3 initiated on 3/01/37 that encompasses semideterministic4 locales within Containment Area 155.

SCP-2254's loop consists of three components: SCP-2254-1, SCP-2254-2, and SCP-2254-3.

SCP-2254-1 is a prototype Boeing Model One that has been heavily modified from its registered specifications. Its wingspan has been increased by four point five inches6 from the original eight point three eight meters. The outermost wing supports have been removed, resulting in severe wing instability. Aeronautic fuel has been replaced with a mixture of sucrose and water that is unable to undergo combustion in SCP-2254-1's engine. In addition, the entire chassis of SCP-2254-1 (including pontoons) has been replaced with concrete, raising the weight far beyond the accepted tolerance of the engine. SCP-2254-1 is extremely durable, but is not capable of powered flight. SCP-2254-1 has been theorized as the motive force behind SCP-2254; however, this cannot be conclusively established due to SCP-2254's effects7.

SCP-2254-2 is the corpse of William E. Boeing, as established by visual confirmation and fingerprint comparison. An autopsy conducted at SCP-2254-3 before the completion of the initial SCP-2254 cycle established cause of death as blood loss resulting from three gunshot wounds located in the upper torso. SCP-2254-2 has no anomalous properties8. SCP-2254-2 was well-preserved at initial time of containment; however, multiple SCP-2254 cycles have significantly degraded its condition. SCP-2254-2, as of 7/05/37, no longer maintains cohesion and consists only of an assemblage of various charred body parts and fluids. This has not impacted its participation in SCP-2254. As Mr. Boeing was last seen during the Hawaiian tsunami on 2/25/37, the mechanism by which SCP-2254-2 was moved to Containment Area 15 is currently unknown.

SCP-2254-3 is the former Mobile Foundation Platform Alpha-Seven ("Beats Manure")9. SCP-2254-3 was the first Mobile Foundation Platform to recover SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2, and was subsequently incorporated into SCP-2254. All personnel inside SCP-2254-3 were killed during the initiation of the SCP-2254 cycle. Repeated SCP-2254 cycles have significantly degraded both the facility and the corpses inside; as of 7/05/37 the facility consists of a mixture of ash, pulverized platform material, and macerated human body components. Despite this, SCP-2254-3 maintains cohesion through unknown means, and is still capable of completing an SCP-2254 cycle.

SCP-2254's crash location can be adjusted via small modifications to SCP-2254-1. Changes in aerodynamicism result in wildly variable crash locations within Containment Area 15. These changes are extremely difficult to predict, and no accurate predictive model has been established. As of 4/14/37, MTFs Epsilon-5 ("So Good They Named It Twice") and Epsilon-6 ("When They Didn't Need To Name It At All")10 have been established to perform these changes for the purpose of experimentation.

SCP-2254 cycles are internally consistent but externally random. A full SCP-2254 cycle lasts a variable amount of observer time and thirty minutes of local time. SCP-2254 cycles demonstrate extreme chronospatial distortion, routinely violating causality, and are capable of radically and temporarily reconfiguring the local geography and time flow of Containment Area 1511. There is a small period during recovery in which restructuring does not occur around SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2.

Addendum 2254-1:
The following is an attempt to describe the internal chronology of an SCP-2254 cycle. It has been assembled based on reports from SCP-2254-3 before the initiation of the initial SCP-2254 cycle. Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding SCP-2254 cycling, derivations in this pattern are extremely difficult to track12. The initial cycle started on 3/1/1937 and has not, as far as we can determine, ended in local time. All time stamps are in minutes. —Doctor Caldmann

[00] SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2 crash-land. Kinetic energy produced in the crash is greater than would be predicted given the weight and velocity of SCP-2254-113.

[01] SCP-2254-3 begins to move to SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2's location to initiate containment.

[05] SCP-2254-3 arrives at SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2 and begins containment.

[10] SCP-2254-3 completes initial containment of SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2. SCP-2254-1 is taken to the hanger. SCP-2254-2 is taken to the morgue. Respective analysis begins.

[15] Autopsy of SCP-2254-2 does not reveal any anomalous features. Analysis of SCP-2254-1 engine begins. SCP-2254-1 begins emitting large amounts of thermal energy14.

[17] Inspection on SCP-2254-1 ceases due to the large amounts of thermal energy being emitted. Hangar is evacuated.

[20] SCP-2254-2 reanimates and begins vocalizing sounds of distress. SCP-2254-2 does not appear capable of human speech. Waveform analysis conducted at Provisional Site-3515 indicates marked similarities to whale songs. SCP-2254-2 begins to move towards SCP-2254-1.

[22] SCP-2254-2 encounters SCP-2254-3 security forces. SCP-2254-2 is affected by ordnance, but locomotion16 is not impeded.

[25] SCP-2254-2 reaches SCP-2254-1. Ambient temperature around SCP-2254-1 begins to char SCP-2254-2; however, locomotion towards SCP-2254-1 continues. Expressions of pain and distress increase.

[28] SCP-2254-2 arrives at SCP-2254-1 and seats itself in the cockpit. A large explosion originating from the hangar, presumed to be from SCP-2254-1, compromises SCP-2254-3's structural integrity. SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2 fall from SCP-2254-3.

[30/0] SCP-2254-1 and SCP-2254-2 crash-land into a location determined partially by the aerodynamicism of SCP-2254-1. Cycle repeats.
