The Neon God

Item #: SCP-C

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Media outlets located in cities with a population over 10 million are to be monitored for mentions of SCP-C. Should it be confirmed that a person was able to enter and then exit SCP-C, they are to be interviewed and then released.

Foundation overlooked surveillance cameras are to be placed and operated in spots of high SCP-C activity, including subway tunnels, slums, and alleyways.

Should the amount of disappearances linked to SCP-C exceed 3,000 persons monthly, MTF Unit Theta-1 ("Neon Blazers") is to be organized and sent into SCP-C in order to determine the cause.

Description: SCP-C-1 is a phenomenon affecting all cities with a population over 10 million. This phenomenon is the sudden appearance of a doorway or flight of stairs, which usually only occurs within areas of the city which see significantly less traffic than other areas, such as subway tunnels, abandoned buildings or alleyways1. This change will not occur if the area in question is being monitored by any source.

Entering any SCP-C-1 instance transports the individual into SCP-C. SCP-C itself is an alternate dimension containing a supermassive man-made environment resembling underground portions of common cities. Despite the evidence of piping, electricity, and in some cases, complete buildings, no human life apart from those who have entered SCP-C-1 have been discovered. The SCP-C-1 instance used to enter SCP-C will remain active on the interior of SCP-C. However, exiting after an unspecified amount of time often results in the individual being expelled through a different entrance than the one they entered through.

The only living creature which has been shown to be native to SCP-C are spiders. Throughout almost every single portion of SCP-C explored, spiders have been discovered living within the rooms and passageways. Occasionally, large swathes of cobwebs have been discovered blocking out entire passageways. It is unknown how they acquire sustenance, as no form of food has been discovered.

While the entrance points to SCP-C are completely random, the interior of SCP-C remains consistent in its layout. However, due to its size and winding nature, it is near impossible to encounter the same stretch of passageway twice.

While SCP-C was only discovered in 1972, evidence has been found which indicates it has existed in the same form for at least 9,000 years. See Addendum-C-## for more details.

Currently, over 3,000 km of unique passage way has been explored. Occasionally, discarded video equipment will be discovered nearby SCP-C-1 entrances.

Addendum-[LETTER]-1: [Optional additional paragraphs]

Something something 'more recently, previously existing entrance ways have been spontaneously and temporarily converted to SCP-C-1 instances.'

What wonderful gods you have…
