SCP-XXXX prior to containment.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is kept in a Standard Humanoid Containment Cell. Due to a history of non-compliance and the nature of its anomaly, SCP-XXXX has not been given any standard amnesties. SCP-XXXX is to be kept under constant surveillance, and a search of the containment unit must be conducted daily. Approved researchers are encouraged to visit SCP-XXXX to enforce compliance and maintain a high morale.

Any discovered instances of SCP-XXXX-A must be confiscated and reported to Dr. Iles. Previous instances of SCP-XXXX-A can be found in Room 502 in Anomalous Items Wing E. Any personnel who intends to conduct research on SCP-XXXX-A instances must obtain permission from Dr. Iles.

Current containment procedures are under review and may be subject to change after approval from the Ethics Committee.

Updated Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX has been neutralized. See Addendum XXXX.4 for details. The household at [something] is to remain under constant surveillance.

Description: SCP-XXXX was a six year old Caucasian human male, formerly Cooper Wells of Columbus, Ohio, USA. SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects manifested in its ability to create complex and inexplicable machinery and technology out of mundane objects, seemingly at will.

SCP-XXXX was categorized as a Class II reality altering entity, with the scope of its abilities being limited to its direct surroundings1. SCP-XXXX did not appear to be aware of the anomalous nature of its abilities, nor its origins; SCP-XXXX has a limited grasp of actual scientific and technological constructs and does not perceive its abilities as anomalous. Instead, SCP-XXXX's imaginative jargon for various objects and their purposes appeared to manifest into actuality, allowing SCP-XXXX to create devices that functioned per their design despite their construction.

SCP-XXXX was prone to containment breaches, as it was capable of easily creating technology allowing it to teleport vast distances with little resources. However, due to SCP-XXXX's tendency to always attempt to return to the home of its parents', it was easily re-contained in nearly every instance. For additional information, see Addendum XXXX.3.

Addendum XXXX.1: Discovery

SCP-XXXX was discovered when embedded Foundation agents within the Ohio State University faculty reported unusual and inexplicably high levels of radiation centered on a small Columbus suburb. This, coupled with an unexplained energy feedback from one specific home, allowed agents to quickly find and apprehend SCP-XXXX2.

Addendum XXXX.2: Interview

Note: The following interview was conducted shortly after initial containment, before permanent containment procedures were developed. During this interview, SCP-XXXX was under the impression that it was at a children's day-care facility.

[BEGIN LOG]

Dr. Iles: Hey buddy, how are you?

SCP-XXXX: Look Ms. Ills. I made a TV.

SCP-XXXX produces a dry-erase board propped up with a piece of cardboard, to which are taped several short pieces of red yarn attached to a Foundation-supplied toothbrush. When SCP-XXXX manipulates the toothbrush, the device functions like a television. Device is later collected for study.

Dr. Iles: Wow Cooper, that's so cool! How did you make it?

SCP-XXXX: I take the bleeb wire here, and connected it to the, uh, well not the bleeb wire but the RGW wire cause I didn't have any bleeb wire, but I connected it to the mokey-trol3 and turned it on.

Dr. Iles: That's so good buddy. What are you watching today?

SCP-XXXX: I, uh, I'm watching Gumball.

Dr. Iles: I see, cool. So Cooper, can you tell me about the thing you made the other day?

SCP-XXXX: (laughs) The banana just splatted on the ground!

Dr. Iles: I see that, yeah. But hey, what about the thing you made the other day, huh? What does it do?

SCP-XXXX: Oh, that's a cookie-bringer4. I thought, "maybe I just want a cookie", so I made a cookie-looker and plugged it into a thing-bringer and made a cookie-bringer. But, but then when the Mr. Guy came, he take the cookie-bringer away.

Dr. Iles: Ah, alright. But Cooper, I want to know-
SCP-XXXX: Do you know Mr. Guy? If he give it back I will you a cookie when I get it back. Mr. Guy can have one too.

Dr. Iles: Right, but how did you make the cookie-bringer, Cooper?

SCP-XXXX: Huh?

Dr. Iles: Well, you know that you can't just make a cookie out of socks and a la—

SCP-XXXX: No, it was a cookie-finder, and then I plugged it into the thing-bringer.

Dr. Iles: But, it didn't even have a power source, buddy.

SCP-XXXX: Oh yeah, I forgot to add the batteries! Just add batteries and then it will be uh, a, uh, a lot-of-cookie-bringer.

Addendum XXXX.3: Containment Breaches

On several different occasions, SCP-XXXX was able to breach containment, either by creating a device to teleport out of Site-81, or by creating a device to brute-force through security measures installed at the site. These devices included an "invisibility hat", a "shrink-gun", a "warp blanket", and a "tunnel shoe", among others. However, after each breach of containment SCP-XXXX would attempt to return to the home of its parents, Dave and Kathy Wells.

The Ethics Committee initially approved of the proposal of Dr. Iles to recruit Mr. and Mrs. Wells as E-Class personnel, in order to facilitate with containment, with the Wells' under the impression that SCP-XXXX is currently quarantined for a rare disease. Initially this lead to a total cessation of containment breach attempts in the first three months of recruitment.

However, on [date], the E-Class personnel convinced SCP-XXXX to attempt to breach containment, citing paranoia and boredom in post-breach interrogations as reasons for this attempt. The Ethics Committee overruled the proposal to immediately execute the E-Class personnel and instead opted to amnetize Mr. and Mrs. Wells and relocated with false identities and memories.

While this lead to higher breach attempts, SCP-XXXX still followed the initial breach pattern to attempt to return to the Wells household. Because of this pattern of behavior, SCP-XXXX was usually easily sedated and re-contained. SCP-XXXX's emotional state began to severely deteriorate with extended containment, specifically after protocols restricting its access to any objects it could use to create anomalous technology with. SCP-XXXX grew withdrawn and hostile towards Foundation staff, and had to be sedated for feedings and sleep, among others.

Addendum XXXX.4:

Dr. [new name, not Iles]
As previous containment breach indicates, SCP-XXXX poses significant risks of uncontainable.
I propose to amend the current Special Containment Procedures, both to minimize the risk of containment breaches, as well as maintain a steady mental state through constant sedation without neutralizing the subject.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a soundproof, modified humanoid containment cell at Site-81. The cell must be devoid of any objects, including living accommodations and all forms of entertainment. SCP-XXXX is not to be provided any clothing or other personal items, and must be restrained.

Thrice daily, SCP-XXXX is to be given appropriate food rations fed via feeding tube while sedated. Individuals entering SCP-XXXX's containment cell and administering this sedation must do so quickly, to avoid any contact between SCP-XXXX and any equipment used to sedate SCP-XXXX5. All individuals entering and leaving the containment unit must

Addendum XXXX.4: Neutralization

On the 17th of January, 2017, during a routine check-up, SCP-XXXX hid behind the door of its containment cell as personnel entered to sedate it, and attacked the staff members. Using a ring of keys taken from one of the personnel members, SCP-XXXX quickly created a makeshift taser and knocked out both staff members. In a disoriented and distressed panic, SCP-XXXX attempted to quickly create a device allowing it to escape containment. Audio equipment within the containment cell recorded SCP-XXXX repeating the words "go home" while it worked.

However, whether by design or on accident, the resulting device violently exploded, killing SCP-XXXX and both members of staff attending to it. The bodies of all three were interred at a local cemetery under alternate names.

Afterwards, SCP-XXXX was reclassified as neutralized.

Addendum XXXX.5: Collected Anomalous Devices

XXXX-A-9 Three steel bedsprings tied together with shoelaces, affixed to a towel and worn on the head Teleporting device Containment Cell
XXXX-A-21 A plastic spoon tied to a Styrofoam cup Similar to XXXX-A-4, but can only make calls to SCP-XXXX's site of initial containment6 Containment Cell
XXXX-A-22 Unknown destroyed object7 Artifact seem to neutralize the effects of amnestics on human subjects. Becomes inert roughly five hours after neutralization of SCP-XXXX Containment Cell



Quick notes:
Possible routes to go:
1) Cooper fucks up
a) Cooper fucks up trying to escape and dies (original)
b) Cooper tries to turn himself non-anomalous and instead died / eldritch abomination
c) Cooper tries to escape and fails but doesn't die
2) Cooper doesn't fuck up
a) Cooper tries to escape and succeeds, Foundation can't find him
b) Cooper turns himself non-anomalous, Foundation declare neutralized, throw him back to unamnetized mom&dad, and just keep an eye out (kinda like ghost girl before twist ending) (happy ending - too happy?)
c) Cooper turns himself non-anomalous and returns to his parents, makes them unamnetized, entire family runs to Sweden and lives happily ever after
d) Cooper turns non-anomalous, attempts to make parents unamnetized - and fails because he's not magic anymore <- current route I'm trying
e) Cooper turns non-anomalous, makes parents unamnetized (permanently?), however still gets locked up because foundation is scared if his powers come back again

Tackling the parents:
a) Why can't the parents be involved (a la 1337?)
a1) They are uncooperative - every time Cooper returns they pretend he's not there, but he gives it away because of Foundation SRA Hume bullshit mumbo jumbo (or parents are just stupid)
a2) They are cooperative - Foundation just are stubborn fucks (original)
a3) They fall under the good ole veil protocol - they think Cooper is arrested for some bullshit, or admitted to a special hospital, and when Cooper runs back home they call the "hospital" to pick him up
