Item #: SCP-777 Object Class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures: The area known
as SCP-777 is to be contained behind two (2) meter tall electrical fencing. Motion activated
turrets are to be placed within the area in order to prevent any instances of SCP-777-1
from escaping the containment area. No liquids are allowed within the area known as SCP-777. Any civilians approaching SCP-777 are to be
interrogated and subsequently dosed with Class-A amnesiacs. For the sake of secrecy, SCP-777
is to be represented as a military bombing range on all maps of the area, and any satellite
imaging is to be doctored by dedicated staff to represent the area as such. Any personnel entering SCP-777 are to wear
sealed ventilated pressure suits to prevent liquid coming into contact with SCP-777. These
suits are to be checked for ruptures before entering SCP-777. Any instances of SCP-777-1
outside of SCP-777 are to be destroyed at the first possible opportunity. In the event that SCP-777 experiences rainfall,
on-site personnel are to authorize a bombing run to neutralize the threat posed. Description: SCP-777 is an area of land spanning
five square kilometers located in the ██████ Desert, referred to by locals as ‘The Kingdom of Sand’.
Unidentified radio interference is present within SCP-777, with the source currently
unknown. SCP-777 demonstrates a further anomalous property
when sand within the area comes into contact with any type of liquid. The moisturized sand
will animate, typically taking the shape of an animal proportionate to the amount of sand
moisturized. These entities will hereafter be referred to as SCP-777-1. Escaped instance of SCP-777-1.
Instances of SCP-777-1 will behave aggressively to any lifeforms that enter SCP-777, and will
attack on sight. SCP-777-1 will single mindedly hunt their prey and have on several occasions
followed intruders out of SCP-777 and to nearby towns. Instances of SCP-777-1 do not appear to attack
each other, and instead behave in a hive mind, using flanking maneuvers to distract and kill
their victims. SCP-777-1 typically collapse and become inanimate if not provided with
further moisture after twenty-four (24) hours, although this timescale seems to be longer
in smaller instances. Sand retrieved from SCP-777 appears to retain
its anomalous qualities until it is taken a further six (6) kilometers away from SCP-777.
Taking advantage of this, a research outpost has been established two (2) kilometers away
from SCP-777, and research on the anomalous sand is currently being undertaken. Analysis of the radio interference and evidence
given in Interview 777-1 indicate that the source of the anomalous events is the center
of SCP-777. However, all attempts to reach it have met with failure. History: SCP-777 was discovered by the Foundation
during a routine myth verification operation undertaken by Mobile Task Force Zeta-17 “Beach
Bullies”. Contact was lost with Task Force Zeta-17 one (1) hour after the mission began. Mobile Task Force Phi-22 “Well Wishers” then
began a rescue operation and managed to retrieve ██████ █████, the leader
of Mobile Task Force Zeta-17 and only survivor of the incident, on the outskirts of SCP-777,
who informed research staff of SCP-777’s nature. …
Test 777-1a Materials used: One (1) grain of sand taken
from SCP-777. Result: Drop of water is applied to sand.
No visible effect. Test 777-1b
Materials used: Small clump of sand taken from SCP-777.
Result: Water is applied to sand. Sand animates into three (3) European hornets, which then
escape from containment and attack Security Officer █████. Security Officer
█████ is relatively unharmed, as the hornets are unable to properly sting him.
SCP-777-1 was then destroyed by a second member of security. Text 777-1c
Materials used: Two connected small clumps of sand taken from SCP-777.
Result: Water is applied to sand. Sand animates into what appears to be a hybrid between a
crab and an octopus. SCP-777-1 is immobile and destroyed without incident. Test 777-1d
Materials used: Mixture of regular sand and sand taken from SCP-777.
Result: Water is applied to mixture. Sand taken from SCP-777 animates into an African
rock python, which burrows out of the sand and is destroyed by security when it attempts
to escape containment. Test 777-1e
Materials used: Sand taken from SCP-777 contained in a test tube.
Result: Water is applied to sand. Sand animates into an unidentified mass which demonstrates
acidic qualities. SCP-777-1 destroyed without incident. Test 777-1f
Materials used: Large mound of sand taken from SCP-777 and a tank filled with water.
Result: Sand is inserted into water tank. Sand takes slightly longer to animate into
a juvenile great white shark. SCP-777-1 does not suffocate when water is removed from the
tank, and is subsequently destroyed by security. Test 777-1g
Materials used: Sand taken from SCP-777 formed into sculpture of a cat.
Result: Water is applied to sand. Sand animates into three (3) abnormally large scorpions.
SCP-777-1 destroyed by security without incident. Test 777-1h
Materials used: Sand taken from SCP-777 placed next to a small plant.
Result: Water is applied to sand. Sand animates into an unknown form of plant life, which
appears to strangle the plant. SCP-777-1 destroyed by security without incident.
Note: It appears SCP-777-1 manifests itself as whatever is deadliest to the nearest organism.
– Dr. ███ Interviewed: ██████ █████ Interviewer: Dr. ███ Foreword: This interview was conducted after
██████ █████ was retrieved from SCP-777. Interview is taking place to
ascertain SCP-777’s nature.
just need to ask you a few questions about what happened. ██████ █████: H-hi Doc.
Fire away, I guess. Dr. ███: When did you discover SCP-777’s…unique
quality? ██████ █████: We’d been
in that damn desert for fifteen minutes, and ████ just wipes some sweat off his
hand and…and he…oh Jesus Christ… Dr. ███: Please continue, ██████. (██████ █████ does not
respond. Dr. ███ sighs and applies a Class B Desensitizer.) Dr. ███: This will help, ██████. Now,
tell me what happened in the desert. ██████ █████: (Monotonous)
████ got swarmed…swarmed by the ants. They ate him and then they ate █████ and
then they ate ██ and then they ate me. Dr. ███: No, ██████, they
did not eat you. You are sitting here, talking to me. ██████ █████: I am sitting
here, talking to you. Dr. ███: Yes. What happened next, ██████? ██████ █████: Me and
████ ran away. █████ was bleeding and he fell over and it made a messed
up crab. Dr. ███: I’m sorry? ██████ █████: Looked
like a crab gone wrong. Too long and too flat, and I think were…were…blind… Dr. ███: What happened next? (██████ █████ does not
reply.) Dr. ███: ██████? (Ten seconds pass.) Dr. ███: Answer the question, please.
██████ █████: I…I kept on running. Those things were right behind
me, and I just kept on running. They got █████, think it was rats that got him. I just kept on running. Dr. ███: Did you see anything else when
you were in SCP-777, ██████? ██████ █████: Sand.
It was just sand. Buildings made of sand, oceans made of sand, animals made of sand.
They were huge, bigger than the buildings. Dr. ███: This was the center, yes? The
center of SCP-777? ██████ █████: No. It
was close, though. I carried on running, and I went through there? Dr. ███: Can you tell me what was in
the center, ██████? ██████ █████: There
was nothing. Just…just more sand. (██████ █████ collapsed
at this point and was removed by medical staff.)
