Item #: SCP-5000

Laconic Containment Procedures: Keep it turned off and in a storage unit in Site-22. All data on SCP-5000 should be kept on secure servers.

Laconic Description: SCP-5000 is a heavily damaged Absolute Exclusion Harness created by the foundation. It used to have multiple abilities to benefit the user but because of the damage all it can do is store files now.

It first appeared in SCP-579's containment room in a flash of light containing a corpse of Pietro Wilson, an employee to the foundation, although he is still alive. Pietro has no memories of anything described in the data logs or SCP-5000 itself.

Archive 5000-1:

The archive details Pietro Wilson escaping Exclusionary Site 06, where he was working at the time because MTF Zeta-19 went in to kill everyone while he managed to get into SCP-5000 to keep him safe.

After getting to a Foundation Safe House, Pietro received a broadcast from the Foundation sent to the public.


The following is a message composed via consensus of the O5 Council.

Hey we used to contain stuff but because of something we can't control we're gonna kill all humans instead.

Immediately after, The Foundation released tons of deadly SCPs. Posting images of SCP-096's face on social media, releasing SCP-682, completely destroying SCP-2000, etc.

After reaching Site-19 to get answers, (invisible due to SCP-5000), Pietro reaches some files which explain a few things about why the Foundation decided to kill everyone.

Pietro, for whatever unknown reason, takes SCP-055 and sets off to SCP-579. He doesn't know why he is doing this.

He comes across a log from inside a refugee camp, Ganzir, between a captured member of MTF-Omega-2 and 2 former foundation members, the log ends with the refugee camp apparently being destroyed and everyone inside it killed. The MTF member quotes SCP-682?

Pietro comes across what appears to be MTF members which have been made into praying mantis statue hybrid things which behave like SCP-173.

He then comes across Dr Bright in the body of a teenage girl who explained the second file mentioned above was a memetic agent. He is planning on going to SCP-1437 to escape to another universe. They both leave in their own directions.

Pietro reaches Site-62C, where SCP-579 is supposed to be. He goes in and then proceeds to get chased by the Mantis Statue things. He jumps in to SCP-579's containment room and then dies from the fall.

Additional Context: SCP-5000 was an entry in the SCP-5000 contest where it won in first place.

The image at the end of the file can be translated to this message:

My hands shake as I hold the document. "This is confirmed?"

He nods. "We got the report from PNEUMA staff yesterday. It's everyone."

"Even us?"

"Even us, Tejani. To think I'd find myself agreeing with that damn lizard…"

"What do we do?"

"You know what we have to do. We'll have to disseminate a cure, I think, among personnel before we get things underway. It'll try to stop us otherwise."

"God help us, One."

"Don't be like that, Tejani. That's IT talking."
