Item #: SCP-5005

Object Class: Euclid

Laconic Containment Procedures: Maintain the Sarai Treaty with SCP-5005 and station a researcher there.

Take a specific portal to get there, but remember that extended time spent there can be emotionally damaging.

Laconic Description: SCP-5005 is a human settlement located a nearly unimaginable distance away from the center of the universe. It is completely dark except for the area lit by SCP-5005-1. The whole place is located on an expanse of dirt-like material. It snows sometimes.

SCP-5005-1 is a huge lamp suspended over SCP-5005. The lamp's light stabilizes reality in the area, allowing the settlement to exist in a place where matter would otherwise simply decay to nothing.

In the end it is discovered that the expanse is actually the corpse of a massive angler fish-like creature originally used for extrauniversal exploration. SCP-5005-1 is its lure.

Additional Context: SCP-5005 was an entry in the SCP-5000 Contest, where it won 6th place.
