[LOG BEGIN]

0: LEAVING BASE NOW

Williams: Let us know if you need anything.

0: YES

Specialist 0 begins to ascend SCP-3333.

Mod-1: [To Williams] I don't like this—

Williams: If it was frightening enough to make your crack team turn tail and flee, it is certainly worth calling in Annette.

Mod-1 does not respond. Specialist 0 continues to ascend.

0: ROOM DIFF. MESSY. FIGHT?

Williams: No, that was us.

0: OK. [Pause] SOMETHING MOVING. SMALL. HOT. [Pause] GONE NOW.

A few hours pass.

0: SOMEONE OUTSIDE. WATCHING.

Williams: They were encountered earlier. If you keep going up—

0: AM. STILL FOLLOWING. WAS WRONG. NOT WATCHING. SOMETHING ELSE.

Williams: What do you mean?

0: DON'T KNOW.

Specialist 0 continues climbing for several more hours. At this point, Specialist 0 has been climbing for over 12 hours.

Williams: Don't you need to rest?

0: SOMETHING STILL THERE. NOT SAFE. WILL USE AMPH.

Specialist 0 consumes 100 milligrams of amphetamine and continues to ascend.

0: OUTSIDE. CAN YOU SEE?

Williams: No, I can't—

There is a flicker of motion on the edge of the camera. Something looking through the windows ducks down as soon as the camera is turned in its direction. The wind is strong; there is no chance of going outside.

From elsewhere in the room, there is a faint knocking sound.

Williams: There's—

0: IT KNOWS.

Specialist 0 begins to rapidly climb upwards. Flickers of motion are occasionally visible outside SCP-3333. Small rustling sounds can occasionally be heard over the wind. It appears that the knocking sound is following Specialist 0 as they climb, now distinctly audible over their microphone. It appears to come from the floor directly below.

Mod-1: Retreat, specialist!

0: NO

Specialist 0 continues rapidly climbing. After approximately an hour, they stop. This iteration of the lookout is different: except for a radius of light around the previous trapdoor's opening, the room is pitch-black.

0: NO LIGHT. HOT.

Specialist 0 does not turn on their flashlight. They raise their arms, probing them across the lookout's ceiling where the next trapdoor should be. Below them, the knocking sound grows louder.

0: NO EXIT

Williams: Turn on the light for us.

Specialist 0 complies. They shine their flashlight on the ceiling of the lookout. True to their word, there is no hatch.

Williams: What about outside?

Specialist 0 turns to face the windows. The usual landscape outside of the lookout is not visible. Instead, there are more copies of the Fremont lookout. There are no longer any railings or staircases, and the boardwalks now connect to each other in a square grid pattern. The sky above is dark, with no stars.

Williams: I think this is as far as it gets.

0: NO

Specialist 0 starts walking. Aside from the duplicated lookouts, nothing is visible on the camera. Only Specialist 0's footsteps are audible on the microphone. Suddenly, there is a loud slam in the distance. The trapdoor has fallen shut.

0: ITS HERE

[Pause]

0: NO HAZARDS?

Specialist 0 begins walking faster. Several small rustling and knocking sounds can be heard. Specialist 0 stops. The sounds quickly cease.

0: BODY.

There is a sound of shifting clothing as Specialist 0 bends down. The sounds can be heard again, louder and closer.

Mod-1: Get out of there, Specialist!

Williams: Annette!

Several crackling sounds can be heard. The knocking grows louder, now distorted from multiple echoes; through the microphone, it almost resembles a series of animalistic barks.

0: BODY. BLOOD. [Pause] INTERNAL ORGANS. MUSCLES. HARD. BURNED. [PAUSE] FUR. HAIR.

The knocking sounds have merged into a single, continuous roar. It is coming from behind Specialist 0.

Mod-1: Get out, Specialist! Leave it! Go!

0: METAL. WORDS. HOT.

There is a thud.

0: TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTETETTTTTTTTETTTEETTTTTTTTTTETTTTETTTTTETTET ET ETTET E

Williams: Annette? Annette?

0: LIGHTS LIGHTS OUT WHERE IS LIGHT

Williams: Annette!

0: THERE IS A DEMON ON THE MOUNTAIN. I NEED TO COME DOWN. WHERE IS THE LIGHT?

Williams: Annette…

Specialist 0's flashlight turns on. Specialist 0 is laying on the ground. The light illuminates a smoldering pile of burned muscles, organs, and bones nearby, all covered in tufts of charred orange fur. A warped metal dog tag is visible clutched in Specialist 0's hand. It reads "MTF Mod-1: Graham Purcell."
