Item #: SCP-001 - BLOCKED

Laconic Containment Procedures: A page declaring SCP-001 to be top secret, followed by warnings and a large fractal image.

There are multiple SCP-001 proposals listed here. See Description.

Laconic Description: SCP-001 is a special case, and is not a single SCP. Instead, it's a collection of "SCP-001 Proposals", which do not compete for 001, but offer alternate interpretations of what could be an 001. Depending on headcanon, they are variably alternate universe occurrence, decoys or fakes, or 001s established before whatever the current system is was developed in-character.

No 001 is the single correct choice. Each is characteristic of its era and its author's perspective on what the fiction means to them.

Additional Context: There are currently 29 SCP-001 proposals. Below are very very very brief summaries of each. Feel free to create individual summary pages for each proposal.

  • CODE NAME: Jonathan Ball - Sheaf of Papers : A sheaf of papers detailing an SCP document. Each time it is opened, a new SCP object is found. The foundation is unsure whether the papers create the object or lead to its discovery.
  • CODE NAME: Dr. Gears - The Prototype : An alien humanoid that creates powerful radioactive forces and mini-singularities. Appeared to be in agony. Killed Dr Keter, who inspired the "Keter Class" designation in this continuity. Has an extremely rough format, signifying it being written before the Foundation was organized.
  • CODE NAME: Dr. Clef - The Gate Guardian : A colossal energy being, wielding a sword that annihilates anything that passes too close at the atomic level. Heavily implied to be the angel guarding the Garden of Eden from the biblical Book of Genesis - has references to other vaguely Abrahamic SCP objects. Contains a transmission from the future during which the being leaves the gate and the rapture begins; a voice calls out to Cain and Abel, "my two sons."
  • CODE NAME: qntm - The Lock - A small ellipsoid-shaped gem surrounded by a gold ring that is warm to the touch. It appears to emit some microwave radiation and has an infinitely complex lock on one end - the key is missing. No attempts to open the lock have been successful and it is completely indestructible. Said to have been recovered several hundred years ago from the temple of an ancient god of death. It probably is the universe.
  • CODE NAME: Bright - The Factory : Not a traditional SCP Article, but in fact one of many "Talks with Mann" style O5's Tale, wherein an O5 member talks to Dr Mann about something in the world. Details the history and existence of The Factory, one of the older GOIs, as the secret SCP-001.
  • CODE NAME: Dr. Mann - The Spiral Path : A spiral-shaped gravel path that, when walked one way, goes uphill and downhill normally. When walked the other, is continuously uphill. Attached to a Tale, Document 001-O5, which discusses how early members of what would become the Foundation used this as inspiration to create anomalous items, to just see what they can do, and everything got out of their hands. What concerns them are the things that they did NOT create.
  • CODE NAME: Dr. Mackenzie - The Legacy : Multiple objects comprise this SCP-001 proposal. A metallic block of unknown material and construction, a key made of the same material, and a diary belonging to an "Administrator." The diary follows broken and vague parts of this Administrator's story, and culminates in a document telling how this Administrator was from another universe and attempted to halt or slow down a "Corruption" that resulted from his people bending the rules of reality too much.
  • CODE NAME: S. Andrew Swann - The Database : A meta SCP-001, wherein the Foundation discovers and attempts to seal away the truth of its nature.
  • CODE NAME: Scantron - The Foundation : An SCP-001 written from the perspective of the Unusual Incidents Unit, a civilian GOI akin to a massively underfunded FBI that deals with supernatural reports.
  • CODE NAME: Djoric/Dmatix - Thirty-Six : A group of thirty-six individuals who, through fate and forces not clearly defined in the article, are destined to restore the world. If one dies, a large number of severe supernatural phenomena suddenly occur. Contains a small section detailing how these members can save or deactivate SCPs.
  • CODE NAME: Roget - Keter Duty : A facility that houses a number of SCP objects, many of which are Keter. Hazardous Keters are contained by other Keters that cancel each other out - if a cell breaches, that area becomes hostile to human life. If all are breached, a bubble of reality distortion will spread from the building and consume the universe; may have happened before but reality was partially restored to what it is today.
  • CODE NAME: djkaktus I - The Children : Nine children which have been transformed into an unbelievably powerful weapon, capable of annihilating anything that they are directed to. Buried under concrete in San Marco after the disappearance/destruction of the head of the project that created them.
  • CODE NAME: Kate McTiriss - A Record : An SCP slot that, in-universe, makes whatever is written within it absolutely true. A researcher becomes God.
  • CODE NAME: TwistedGears/Kaktus - The Broken God - An origin of The Broken God, a massive monster made of mechanical parts capable of eating mountains whole, appearing across Baja Mexico and wreaking havoc, before being annihilated by another SCP.
  • CODE NAME: Kalinin - Past and Future : An entity/entities which wishes ill of humanity and is the apparent source of all paranormal phenomena in the observable universe. Created in conjunction with an associated Tale series that fleshes the narrative out. A type of 4th wall break where the entities are actually SCP wiki article writers and editors.
  • CODE NAME: Wrong - The Consensus : An origin of the Foundation after a reality restructuring, wherein the current reality was remade after an Occult War in the previous reality.
  • CODE NAME: S. D. Locke - When Day Breaks : Originally written for the SCP-3000 contest, themed around horror, this is not an origin of the SCP Foundation, but an end of the world. The Sun transforms and causes all living things to melt like wax. The Administrator's note from the "About the Foundation" page spawned the idea of flipping the dark-bad/light-good dichotomy.
  • CODE NAME: spikebrennan - God's Blind Spot : A spot designated as Facility T that prevents all human death within its area (to a reasonable extent). Created after God went to kill Moses for not circumcising his son, but Moses's wife Zipporah did before God could kill Moses. Foundation has since made a contract with God that limits the time they can use the spot in return for not being killed when they leave.
  • CODE NAME - WJS - Normalcy: A non-anomalous document that is shared between the members of the O5 Council, which defines what is considered to be the basic laws of reality. Anything that happens outside of what the document defines is considered to be anomalous. Proposals have been made throughout the years, including one from July 1945 (about a month before the events on Hiroshima and Nagasaki) about the laws of nuclear fission. A button at the bottom of the page promises access to the actual document, but actually leads to a letter written to the reader from an O5 member, stating perfectly why the SCP Foundation is cold, not cruel.
  • CODE NAME - BILLITH - The World At Large: Another Foundation planted life on Earth millions of years ago. This other Foundation has control over most of the universe.
  • CODE NAME - Tanhony - Dead Men: An 84 year old person that, when removing/affecting certain parts of their body, can affect how human death works. The Ethics Committee determines that the O5 Council is using it for themselves, and plans to kill them and replace them. The O5 use their mobile task force (Alpha-1 ("Red Right Hand")), the Ethics committee use theirs (Omega-1 ("Law's Left Hand")), and the Administrator uses theirs (Rēsh-1 ("Seat of Consciousness")). All O5, ethics committee members, the Administrator, and the 84 year old person are killed. The Administrator made sure there were 12 candidates for 11 O5 positions and 1 for the next Administrator.
  • CODE NAME - Lily - The World's Gone Beautiful: An event that will take place 24 hours before the end of all life on Earth during which flowers will grow all over the planet and everyone will become peaceful. The actual event that ends the world is not described.
  • CODE NAME - Tufto - The Scarlet King: An extradimensional being called "The Scarlet King" that exists in multiple realities and has been attempting to enter this reality for hundreds of years. Said to be the physical embodiment of the antiquity's hatred for the modern ways of life.
  • CODE NAME - djkaktus II - Atonement: A humanoid gravitational singularity that is confined to the spacial anomaly study lab in which he was accidentally created and can manipulate gravity to any degree. It looks into the future of the multiverse and sees that within 60 years SCP objects and anomalies will be so widespread that containment will be impossible and all universes will perish. It speaks to the O5 council members and offers to destroy all things anomalous in the multiverse and save humanity, but at the cost of an infinite number of lives. The council members agree, but SCP-001 reveals that it's plan includes removing all traces of anomalies from our universe as well, and tries to kill the O5 before being recontained.
  • CODE NAME - Jim North - A Simple Toymaker: A reality bender who bends reality to make anomalous toys named Dr. Wondertainment
  • CODE NAME - I.H. Pickman - Story of Your Life: Similar to The Database, however told differently, where documentation of it can only be written in a narrative format.
  • CODE NAME - The Great Hippo (feat. Peppersghost) - A Good Boy: A text generator AI that is fed with an entire SCP database and advises the Foundation on how to better contain some SCPs, which the O5 Council votes to pass or not. The Foundation give it too much power and it starts to neutralize everything, including the O5 Council who vote against it. The ending is left vagued for reader to interpret whether the AI actually did neutralize everything, or is it just messing with the database.
  • CODE NAME: weizhong|thedeadlymoose|Drewbear|Dexanote - Project Palisade: The Foundation discovers "The Worm", an entity that destroys reality, and attempts to protect themselves from it by creating alternate reality as a shield. Someone made a hypothesis that this method actually "power up" the entity, but The Foundation keeps denying it for some reason.
