Item #: SCP-1841-EX

Object Class: Explained

Laconic Containment Procedures: SCP-1841 remains out of containment as his effects make it impossible. He is also protected by the Roman Catholic Church and the German Empire. The Foundation will track him and assist in dispelling riots as a result of his presence. Personnel cannot attend performances by him.

Laconic Description: SCP-1841 is Lisztomania, where any listening to pieces performed by Franz Liszt would result in most people becoming hysteric and acting irrationally. Females are more likely to be affected. They try to follow Liszt back home and try to steal his personal belongings which may result in riots.

After Liszt's death, the SCP was deemed Neutralised. When Elvis Presley began performing, the same effect occurred and the Foundation would reopen the SCP and aim to contain it. Eventually, the same effect was observed from other musicians, raising the object class to Keter. The Foundation began to attempt aggressive containment, neutralizing multiple musicians and beginning campaigns to eliminate rock-and-roll music.

By 1996, the effect had spread greater than the Foundation saw themselves able to control and they begin to plan assassinations of high-profile musicians. By 1996, after the Foundation led murder of Tupac Shakur, the Director of MTF activities, James A. Ostheim would investigate and discover that SCP-1841 might not necessarily exist. O5-6 was apparently issuing the assassination orders.

Finally, SCP-1841 was reclassified as Explained in 1997 after being deemed as a normal human psychological reaction to celebrities and O5-6 would go into early retirement.
