The next item on the list is SCP-055.

It is flagged "infohazard", "antimemetic" and "iota type".

There's a helpful index that will explain iota type infohazards are ones that are all powerful, but not known to be immediately dangerous to those affected. There is no known way to get around them, but they do not cause any obvious harm or inability to function in areas unrelated to them.

So she reads.

SCP-055 is a self-keeping secret. Nothing about it is known. How it came into containment is not known. How long it has been contained is not known. 

Individuals are able to describe SCP-055 while viewing and even draw it, but do not retain any of those memories. It is possible for individuals to retain information about what SCP-055 is not, such as it not being round. This can be used to help individuals retain memories of SCP-055's overall existence. 

There is a secondary file, marked for members of the antimemetic division. It states that mnestics are able allow individuals to remember that SCP-055 exists, but even the most powerful mnestics do not allow individuals to retain any information about what SCP-055 is.

Attached is a detailed log of various experiments with SCP-055. These files include drawings, photographs, and descriptions. 

SCP-055 is the picture the man from the antimemetics division shown her, the red egg. 

In the older experimental logs, the photographs and drawings of SCP-055 do not include a crack. 

The crack first appeared four years ago, starting at the top of the egg. In every photo since, the crack has grown slightly.

Welp that's concerning as heck. She writes in about that, too, not quite emergency priority but not trivial either, trying to obfuscate so someone will be able to retain the information.

SCP-055 is not remaining the same over time.

She gets a reply in five minutes.

Can this be visually confirmed?

By me, yes. You could also try asking people who saw it before date - She inputs the latest date of an uncracked-egg photo. whether they would say it was "not cracked" and see if they agree with people who saw it later.

Permalink

Thank you. We will attempt to confirm. 

This should be enough, but it might take several days. Please keep working if you can.

Will do.

She moves on to the next.

The next entry is SCP-148 and is untagged. 

SCP-148 is an Euclid class anomaly consisting of 120 cast ingots. The ingots have the effect of blocking mind-affecting or extrasensory properties. Humans who interact with SCP-148 for an extended period of time will lose their ability to communicate, both verbally and nonverbally. SCP-148 increases in mass when exposed to mind-affecting or extrasensory properties.

Huh. That's an interesting combination of properties, weirdly suggestive... she doesn't have anything to suggest on it right away. Next.

Permalink

SCP-247 which is tagged as 'perception-altering'. 

Permalink

Let's see if it works on Miranda!

Permalink

SCP-247 is a bengal tiger who looks like a normal house-cat, even in recorded videos.

When Miranda looks at the videos, she sees a bengal tiger. 

Permalink

She reports this at low priority.

The next SCP, SCP-252, is also perception altering. 

SCP-252 is a subspecies of squid that when frighted or hunting, cause the viewer to see the instance of SCP-252 as an enormous sea creature. Subjects experience a severe reaction reaction and are convinced that the creature they saw was real, even when this would be logically impossible.

This effect initially caused the Foundation to expend much more resources containing SCP-252 than were necessary. 

Subjects who view a video of an agitated SCP-252 instance and have never been exposed see a "fake-looking" and "nonsensical" monster that is moderately frightening. 

If Miranda views the included video, she will see a large, unrealistic multi-tentacled sea monster. She will experience no more fear reaction than she would from seeing a bad CGI monster in a movie. 

Permalink

This too gets reported at low priority.

Permalink

The next entry, SCP-282, is not tagged.

It is a hat that makes the wearer vanish from perception when worn. Over multiple uses, the effects begin to linger. It is believed to have made one foundation employee, who wore the hat repeatedly while doing field work, disappear from the memories of all foundation personnel.

The hat is no longer in Foundation custody. A note reading "Thanks, I needed my hat back. ~ L.S." was found in its place.

The note from the antimemetics division says that mnestics were effective in reducing the effects of the hat, but not stopping it entirely. An individual using mnestics would find someone wearing the hat for the first time possible, but difficult, to pay attention to and remember. Over repeated wearings, individuals wearing the hat were no longer able to be detected or remembered even by personnel using mnestics.

Permalink

Well, if anyone knows where that employee may have gone to ground, she'd be happy to go look for them.

Permalink

The next entry is SCP-370.

It is flagged "info-hazard", "memetic" and "omicron type".

Omicron type infohazards are infohazards that cause extreme damage, including but not limited to death and major personality changes, in the infected and in which the people infected become a further vector of infection, often with compulsions or personality changes that make spreading the infection non-optional.  Omicron type infohazards can not be countered by amnestics. 

Permalink

Okay. Does she trust her weird immunity or not.

 

Not enough to bypass the warning about reading it in a controlled environment. She sends back a note that she's willing to look into it but someone should probably be standing by to screen her for whatever symptoms the thing causes.

SCP-451 is not flagged. 

SCP-451 is the foundation researcher who is unable to perceive the presence or actions of other human beings.

During a suicide attempt, a bullet passed through his head without harming him. In the same instance, he was able to briefly interact with a researcher killed by the bullet as they were dying. 

The file includes a copy of his journal. 

A note from the antimemetics division says that attempts to give him amnestics were not effective and did not result in him being able to perceive any other humans. 

In the main document, the object SCP-451 went to retrieve is redacted. The antimemetic divisions note says that the object was is recorded as being a suspected antimemetic artifact, a map that when slowly added to seemed to erase the mapped areas from existence. One antimemetic researcher on the highest dose of mnestics remembers mention of the map existing. No one else remembers the map or the mission SCP-451 was sent on, though he himself was remembered clearly by his colleagues. It is not known if the areas covered by the map continue to be removed from existence (or perception) or if they have returned to normal.

SCP-451 notes in his journal that the artifact he was sent to retrieve is now in Foundation custody. No object matching the description of the map exists in site-19 and no unexplained anomalous artifacts have appeared since SCP-451's arrival. 

Permalink

Hrm. She writes that she would be willing to try to communicate with him but certainly can't do it from here.

Permalink

The next entry, SCP-868, is un-flagged. 

SCP-868 is a meme that grants infected subjects perfect memory, that gradually expands to cover the subjects entire lifespan. This retroactively removes the effects of any amnestics the infected person has taken. 

Infection is spread through a thirty minute two-way conversation with an an infected individual. 

The Foundation was able to develop an amnestic, AMN-868, capable of reversing the effects of SCP-868. AMN-868 causes early onset azlheimers in 10% of individuals and anti-social and self-destructive behaviors in 30% of individuals.

Permalink

...well.

She writes in, low-priority, that she isn't nearly interested enough in a perfect memory to start a conflict with the Foundation or make anyone try to increase her risk for Alzheimer's/psychoticism, but if they want her to have a chat with their containment subjects she'd be happy to see what she could figure out about it.

The next SCP is SCP-931.

It is flagged "info hazard" and "eta type".

Eta type info hazards are info hazards with minor, non-harmful effects.

SCP-931 is classified as safe and is a rice bowl that can only be written about in haikus. It seems to draw from the writer's knowledge of exactly what a haiku is.
