rating: -2+x

Item #: SCP-3388

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the uncontrollable nature of the anomaly, SCP-3388 is kept at Site-78-A, a residential structure cordoned off from the neighboring area. Containment efforts are focused on minimizing the frequency of SCP-3388-2 events. MTF Upsilon-XI ("Some Cocky Pun"), is to be deployed in the event of a containment breach.

SCP-3388 is to be blindfolded and dressed in bite-resistant body armor and fed by two armored personnel. Subject is allowed certain small-sized granola/energy bars upon request. Personnel are to tranquilize instances of SCP-3388-2, if practicable, and ensure the safety of SCP-3388.

Discussions are ongoing between the Foundation and "Stuff of Dreams LLC" regarding the safe neutralization of SCP-3388's anomalous effects.

Description: SCP-3388 is a Caucasian female who causes nearby inanimate objects to spontaneously transform into one or more gray wolves1 roughly arranged in the shape of the object they have replaced and scaled to size. The wolves (SCP-3388-2) display no anomalous behavior, although in many cases they are capable of replicating the basic actions of the object(s) they have replaced.

Attempts to contain SCP-3388 resulted in the continuous manifestation of gray wolves until such time as Foundation personnel temporarily vacated the area. Personnel re-established contact with the subject and made her aware of the situation, after which the subject was successfully contained following the implementation of Marlowe-Stormberg Hostile Extraction Protocol 2.

Several days after containment, a letter was left addressed to the subject on Site-78-A addressed from "Stuff of Dreams LLC." The source of the anomaly, according to the letter, stemmed from an unspecified interaction between the subject and the organization in question. The subject then began to experience anomalous effects in public. The letter addressed SCP-3388's anomalous properties, and apologized for the "unintended effects".

Both the company and the subject agree that the anomalous effects were unintentional and the result of some "malfunction", although subject denies having made any definitive agreements. Citing loss of their personal vehicle, as well as physical and psychological trauma sustained (up to and including containment), SCP-3388 has declared their intent to sue "Stuff of Dreams LLC" for damages.

"Stuff of Dreams" responded some days later by returning SCP-3388's vehicle, unchanged from its anomalous transformation. SCP-3388 perceived this to be an insult, and began to threaten "exposing" the company to the public. "Stuff of Dreams" then sent a representative to Site-78 with the purpose of mediating a resolution with SCP-3388.

The representative, going by the name "Mr. Ice", refused to allow SCP-3388 to be amnesticized without first reaching an agreement, as they claimed the subject's "unconscious memories" would be unaffected, leading to the subject spreading knowledge of this conflict to the "pool of potential clientele" whilst dreaming. Mr. Ice apparently attempted to imply that this would likely lead to a leak of sensitive information obtained by SCP-3388 while in containment. As such, a mediation session was agreed to.

Logs:

Mediation Log, 10/25/20██

Note: SCP-3388 had requested the services of a Foundation-appointed attorney. Personnel on-site have postponed making a decision pending the outcome of this mediation attempt. "Stuff of Dreams LLC" are represented by an individual calling themselves "Mr. Ice"

Agent West: Let's get started. [NAME REDACTED], would you begin?

SCP-3388: Alright, so I had a weird dream [Subject gesticulates to Mr. Ice] brought about by them, I guess. I wake up —

Agent West: You don't remember the dream?

SCP-3388: I remember that I had the dream and that it felt uncomfortable. I wake up, and get out of bed, on my way to work, I almost get hit by some ass cutting me off without using a turning-signal. I got a little freaked out and pulled in to a parking lot of a 7-11 to get some air. I look back, and my car is made of hair. Then it starts wriggling and writhing, and I see wolves' heads poking out of it. Suddenly they're all barking at me wildly, and then the car just runs off. Like, each of the wheels became a wolf, and the four started running all together.

Mr. Ice: Excuse me —

SCP-3388: I'm not done. So I run into the 7-11 and start screaming for a phone, since I'd left mine in the car. They pointed me to a payphone, and when I turned around, the shelves collapsed into a pile of wolves. One at a time, each shelf just becomes a pile of wolves. A fucking pile of wolves.

Mr. Ice: This is irrelevant to the issue at hand —

SCP-3388: I'm not done. I run out the door and the wolves start chasing me. At least, I thought they were at the time. I didn't stop running. All around me, stuff was turning into wolves. Street signs, mailboxes, benches, even a few cars. I saw a cop pull a gun and start shooting some of the wolves. His gun became a little wolf, and it started spitting out even littler wolf pups!

Mr. Ice: My company is not refuting the sequence of events leading to [NAME REDACTED]'s containment.

SCP-3388: Listen to me, you fuck; you did this. You caused it somehow, and I have no idea how or why.

Agent West: Please, let's take a step back here. No more interruptions. Mr. Ice?

Mr. Ice: Stuff of Dreams is not in the business of hounding individuals unprovoked. What we do involves a great deal of discretion. To be approached by someone representing us, you have to have made a conscious effort to do so. Ms. [REDACTED] made contact with an individual known to us as a frequent and satisfied client. From there, we established contact with her the night prior to the events previously mentioned.

SCP-3388: That's bullshit.

Mr. Ice: I believe Agent West specified there were to be no further interruptions?

SCP-3388: That's a lie, though. I never asked anyone about 'making my dreams come true'. That's just stupid. And why would I even wish for…like, wolves? Everything turning into wolves?

Mr. Ice: As we've made clear several times, a mistake was made.

Agent West: Could you clarify exactly what you mean by a 'mistake was made'?

Mr. Ice: I'm not at liberty to divulge specifics. The mechanism by which we responded to Ms. [REDACTED]'s request —

SCP-3388: Ms. [REDACTED]'s bullshit

Mr. Ice: Excuse me.

Agent West: [NAME REDACTED], please.

SCP-3388: This is a crock of shit! Where are your logs of this so-called meeting we had? This dream-meet? No, screw that, you could've forged them. Where's security footage or whatever?

Mr. Ice: Security footage. Of a meeting taking place in a dream.

SCP-3388: You know what I don't need this shit. You better find yourself a damn good lawyer, because I'm taking this to fucking "Dream Court".

Mr. Ice: "Dream Court"? How exactly would that work? And what if you lost such a legal battle? Who would enforce the outcome? What stops you from ignoring that outcome and persisting in slandering our reputation?

SCP-3388: Nothing. What stops you from just killing me to shut me up?

Mr. Ice: Killing a dissatisfied customer would be a significant stain on our reputation.

SCP-3388: So then what do you want? Why do any of this?

Mr. Ice: The Foundation is not in the business of casually neutralizing anomalous beings so long as they can be reasonably contained with a reasonable amount of effort expended. They will continue to keep you alive and "malfunctioning" for as long as you should naturally live. What I'm proposing is a mutual agreement, in which we would remove any and all alterations made by Stuff of Dreams to you which may have contributed to your current situation. In exchange, you agree not to hold us in any way liable for these events, and will refrain from making others aware — knowingly or unknowingly — of our role in this unfortunate sequence of events.

SCP-3388: How's that happen?

Mr. Ice: We will go over the details at a later date. Being as you are in Foundation custody, we will have to speak directly with your project overseers at a later date.

SCP-3388: Being held illegally I should add—

[End log]

Addendum: Mr. Ice of "Stuff of Dreams" returned with a formal offer to neutralize SCP-33882 while the subject [NAME REDACTED] would be unharmed and safe to release following amnestic treatment. Mr. Ice explained that he was fully aware of the Foundation's policy towards containment, and explained the motivation behind this offer being the "good name and reputation of Stuff of Dreams." Mr. Ice further explained that SCP-3388 would be able to interact with other anomalous entities via her dreams and damage the reputation of the company.

Foundation personnel on-site are divided over this offer made by Mr. Ice. Arguments have been presented by each side (for and against) and have been presented to Site Director Forelle. Truncated summaries of each presentation are attached.
