Item #: SCP-411

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-411 is to be stored folded in sixteenths in an appropriately-sized footlocker, which is to be locked with a heavy padlock. The footlocker is to be locked in an ordinary closet with a heavy wooden door. An alarm is to go off if any unauthorized personnel attempt to open the door. Under no circumstances are any sentient SCP's to be made aware of SCP-411's presence, especially those at keter class. It could be utilized in an escape attempt.

Description: SCP-411 is a fleece blanket measuring 2mx1.8m, bearing a blue and white checked pattern. The edges are white and bear the words [DATA EXPUNGED].

When subjects are completely covered by SCP-411, they appear to outside observers to vanish. The subject is found anywhere from five (5) minutes to several weeks later, in a completely different location. Subjects report finding a small tunnel bearing the blanket's pattern. The other end of the tunnel is always reported to be somewhere different.

Was instructed by Agent Apocalemur to try to climb back into the tunnel. Subject retreated into the box.

Date: ██/██/████
Test Subject: Personnel D-977
Results: Prior to testing, subject is given a two-way radio transceiver, and told to describe his experiences to Agent Apocalemur. Transcript follows:

Apocalemur: Testing, testing…do you hear me?

D-977: Yes.

Apocalemur: Good. Now cover yourself completely with the blanket. Curl up on the floor if you have to.

(a brief period of silence)

Apocalemur: Okay, now what do you see?

D-977: It's just blue and white everywhere.

Apocalemur: There should be something like a tunnel somewhere. Crawl through it.

D-977: Yeah, here it is…(silence)…I think I see the end.

Apocalemur: Okay, now don't go all the way out. Stop as soon as you're head's out of the tunnel.

D-977: It's getting really cold in here…I think I'm (incomprehensible due to ambient sounds, confirmed to be a breeding colony of emperor penguins)

Apocalemur: Can you hear me? I want you to go back into the tunnel as far as you can.

(ambient sounds stop)

D-977:…All right, I'm in. There were penguins everywhere!

Apocalemur: I figured. How far back into the tunnel did you go?

D-977: Not far. I just got my head in. It feels like the tunnel's closed behind me.

Apocalemur: Okay, now I want you to go forwards, and tell me if anything changes.

D-977: It feels warm this time…and bright, too…oh…oh god! OH GOD!

Apocalemur: What's happening?


Apocalemur: Where are you?

(transmission lost)

Apocalemur: God damn it.
