Item #: SCP-5999

Object Class: null

Laconic Description: An article in which the story of the Foundation's investigation into what's basically a cursed corpse is broken down into eight sections. Each section is headed by an image of candle flames, beginning with seven and losing one flame as the sections progress, until no flames are left and the ending is reached.

The author would like readers to solve the mystery themselves instead of resorting to spoilers. Please give the original article a try before reading the spoilers below.

Additional Context: SCP-5999 was an entry in the SCP-5000 Contest, where it won 2nd place.
