Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation officials within the medical industry, particularly those specializing in osteology and radiology are to actively suppress information regarding SCP-XXXX. Hospitals and medical facilities are to be monitored for discovered instances of SCP-XXXX. Funeral homes and morgues are to be similarly monitored for corpses affected by SCP-XXXX, which are to be confiscated upon discovery. Witnesses to an SCP-XXXX affected individual's death are to be administered Class-B amnestics.

Any living individuals found to be affected by SCP-XXXX are to be relocated to Site-141 for permanent residency. These individuals are to remain uninformed of their affliction. Attempts to cure or negate SCP-XXXX's effects are currently ongoing. All information regarding SCP-XXXX's current status is to be reported to Dr. Rebecca Stone.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon where individuals will experience a complete disappearance of their skeletal system while sleeping. All recorded cases of SCP-XXXX have affected individuals suffering from a disorder or disease directly connected to their skeletal system. The exact method of the removal is unknown, but no pain or discomfort has been reported by affected persons.

Once an individual is affected by SCP-XXXX, their body will continue to move and function as if it still has a skeletal system. Organs and muscle tissue will remain suspended within the body, despite physical analysis confirming that no supporting structures are present. When presented with the possibility of SCP-XXXX's effect, individuals will disregard the claim. Continuing to bring up this idea will result in the individual becoming hostile, claiming that this questioning is making them uncomfortable. Affected individuals will also report that any discomfort from their previous skeletal affliction has either lessened or completely vanished.

When an SCP-XXXX affected individual is presented with conclusive evidence1 that their skeletal system has completely vanished, their body will cease all anomalous properties and will immediately collapse. This will occur once the individual accepts this information as true, though many individuals will delay this by claiming that the evidence has been falsified. Once the body collapses, the individual will experience severe internal hemorrhaging, with death occurring shortly after. If an SCP-XXXX affected individual dies through any other means, their body will similarly lose anomalous properties approximately 42 hours after death.

Incident Log #XXXX-TR: On 07/29/2021, the Foundation received a distress call from Dr. Rebecca Stone's husband, who claimed to witness a levitating entity above Dr. Stone while she was sleeping. An audio log of this call is available below.

When Foundation agents arrived, Dr. Stone was awake and complained of an aching pain across her body. No entity was found within the room. An X-ray examination revealed that her entire skeletal system had been replaced by various objects from within her house. These objects varied in length, with several items not matching the length of the bones they had replaced. Further examinations showed no immediate negative effects of the replacements on Dr. Stone's body, although she reported some difficulty in walking due to her right tibia having been replaced by a bottle of ██████ brand whiskey.

During subsequent testing, it was discovered that Dr. Stone's third vertebrae had been replaced by a white notecard or unknown origin. A transcription of this note has been provided below

Greetings Madam.

As you and your employers have expressed acute interest in our collection efforts, we have elected you to experience our new method of acquisition. You might recall how previous methods were prone to end quite messily. With this new method, your human body will hopefully become better adjusted to a lack of structure when introduced to items more familiar to it. Hopefully, these operations will be better suited for those of an inquisitive nature, such as yourself. After all, debts can't be collected from those who don't expend.

We thank you for your keen interest and improvements to our techniques but do try to not interfere with our future acquisitions.

Regards,
Osseus Furem
Associate of
The Tökken Täkker

Item #: SCP-4286

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: All recordings or images of SCP-4286 are to be confiscated. Those who have viewed any media containing SCP-4286 are to be Class-B amnestics. Individuals implanted with SCP-4286-1 are to be administered targeted Class-C amnestics and are to visit a Foundation assigned medical professional for monthly examinations.

Foundation officials within the medical industry, particularly those specializing in osteology and radiology are to actively suppress information regarding SCP-4286. Attempts to successfully recreate and implant SCP-4286 affected bones are currently ongoing.

Description: SCP-4286 is a phenomenon where individuals have portions of their skeletal system anomalously augmented while sleeping. SCP-4286 appears to exclusively affect individuals suffering from a disorder or disease affecting their skeletal system. The exact method of the phenomenon is unknown, but no pain or discomfort has been reported by affected persons. Due to this, SCP-4286 will not normally be discovered until an intensive medical procedure is performed on the subject.

SCP-4286 causes bones within the human body to resemble various household objects. These bones will seamlessly integrate themselves into the body's skeletal system. SCP-4286 affected bones will produce blood cells at a rate consistent with standard human bones. SCP-4286 affected individuals have shown a notable resistance to disease, with most individuals being completely cured of their previous skeletal ailment two months after their SCP-4286 occurrence. SCP-4286 affected bones have shown remarkable strength, with instances withstanding more than 5000 newtons of force without damaging. All attempts to surgically implant instances of SCP-4286 affected bones have resulted in rejection from the host body.

Addendum: On 04/23/2021, footage surfaced online of an anomalous entity (designated SCP-4286-1) entering a child's bedroom and performing a series of medical procedures. After its discovery, the footage was removed and the affected child was located, who previously suffered from Osteogenesis Imperfecta.2 Within the child were several SCP-4286 affected bones located in the chest, right arm, and right leg. A video log of the event has been included below in the hope of better understanding the cause of SCP-4286 occurrences.

<BEGIN LOG>

00:00:00 - Footage shows a child’s bedroom, with a bed placed against the far wall near a window. Several toys and other objects are scattered throughout the room. A closed door is present on the wall of the bedroom. A child is visible laying on the bed without blankets.

00:02:14 - Black smoke rises from below the camera, obscuring the view of the room.

00:02:21 - The smoke clears and an animate human skeleton is visible slowly walking towards the child. Placed upon SCP-4286-1's head is a red cardboard party hat.

00:02:37 - SCP-4286-1 steps on the edge of a red plastic box. The box tops over, spilling a large number of plastic building blocks across the floor. No noise is created by the blocks. SCP-4286-1 flinches and looks at the child, then continues walking in an exaggerated fashion.

00:03:14 - SCP-4286-1 reaches the bed and begins to examine the child. It reaches into the child's chest and removes a rib. SCP-4286-1 looks at the rib before shaking its head and inserting the rib back into the child. SCP-4286-1 then pats the child's head before removing its hat.

00:03:54 - SCP-4286-1 reaches into the child’s right leg and slowly produces a femur. It then removes it’s party hat and proceeds to push the femur into the hat. The femur disappears from view.

00:04:05 - SCP-4286-1 reaches into the hat, producing a rolling pin. The rolling pin is held up to the child's thigh before SCP-4286-1 shakes its head. The pin is then reinserted into the hat.

00:04:23 - SCP-4286-1 produces a claw hammer from the hat before holding it to the child's thigh. SCP-4286-1 nods before inserting the hammer into the child’s thigh. It then reaches into the chest of the child and delicately removes several ribs before placing them within the hat.

00:04:41 - SCP-4286-1 reaches into the hat and produces an extended pocket knife, a socket wrench, and a length of black cord. These are then slowly inserted into the child’s chest by SCP-4286-1. SCP-4286-1 reaches in the child's chest several times, adjusting the placement of the objects.

00:05:09 - SCP-4286-1 removes the child’s right humerus and inserts it into the hat. SCP-4286-1 then reaches into the hat, searching for several minutes. During this time, SCP-4286-1 pulls several objects from the hat, such as a golf club, a bag of white liquid, a mannequin head, and a small anvil. SCP-4286-1's movements become more frantic, using both hands to shake the hat in an attempt to remove its contents.

00:08:35 - SCP-4286-1 places both of its hand on its head and begins pacing around the room. It then stops moving before bending down and grabbing several plastic building blocks from the floor.

00:09:04 - SCP-4286-1 attaches the blocks together, forming a large rectangle. It then slowly places this construction within the child’s arm, adjusting its position several times. SCP-4286-1 then reaches into its hat and produces a small bandage stylized with a cartoon heart. This bandage is removed from its packaging and adhered to the child's arm. SCP-4286-1 gathers the items that were removed from its hat placing the hat on its head. SCP-4286-1 then bends over the child, touching its mouth to the child's forehead in a kissing motion.

00:09:09 - SCP-4286-1 quickly glances past the camera and looks around the room. SCP-4286-1 opens the door next to the child's bed. Behind the door is a small closet containing various shirts and plastic bins. SCP-4286-1 quickly enters the closet before closing the door.

00:09:17 - Black smoke is visible emitting from a gap between the closet door and the wall before dissipating. Light emanates from out of view as the parents of the child enter the room.
