SCP-2547 Dog Days of Summer | keter | animal / transfiguration SCP

Item #: SCP-2547 Object Class: Keter Special Containment Procedures: Due to the
nature of SCP-2547, effective containment is not possible at this time. Towns determined to be susceptible to SCP-2547
manifestation events are to be monitored via remote surveillance and evacuation of the
population is to be attempted if deemed possible. Towns undergoing an event are to be dosed
aerially with Class A amnestics at the end of the manifestation event. Description: SCP-2547 is a pack of approximately
4000 different members of the family Canidae1. Members of SCP-2547 do not need food or water. Any attempts to harm, kill or tranquilize
a member of SCP-2547 will result in the rest of the group becoming hostile and aggressive. Members of SCP-2547 can be separated from
the group and detained, but will disappear the instant they are no longer directly being
observed and rejoin SCP-2547. DNA testing has revealed that members of SCP-2547
are genetically identical to human beings. SCP-2547 only manifests in rural American
towns. Affected states include Montana, Wyoming,
Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and southern California. The town must have a population of less than
3,000, as well as a reservoir and a church. Manifestations will occur only between June
1 and August 31. For the duration of the event, the local temperature
will remain above 32 degrees Celsius, and all local precipitation will cease. The following is a timeline of SCP-2547 manifestation
events. SCP-2547 EVENT SCRIPT
Immediately Upon Arrival: The town suffers a power outage between midnight and 4 AM. SCP-2547 members form a border around the
most densely populated portion of the town and block all attempts at escape. Attempts to enter a vehicle will provoke an
attack by SCP-2547. Three Days After Arrival: Three days after
SCP-2547’s arrival, all the water in the reservoir will disappear. A male coyote wearing a leather coat altered
to accommodate its skeletal structure and a worn wooden crucifix will appear. This entity has been designated SCP-2547-1,
though it refers to itself as the Reverend. SCP-2547-1 is capable of both bipedal locomotion
and speech. Time Between SCP-2547-1 Appearance and Departure:
SCP-2547-1 will take up residence in the local church and hold regular sermons four times
a day. The sermons usually consist of a diatribe
on how modern society has forgotten SCP-2547-1 and its siblings, and how they have lost the
ability to dream as they once did. SCP-2547-1 ends its sermons by asking if any
member of the congregation would like to trade for some water, but doesn’t specify what goods
it will take in exchange. SCP-2547-1 will accept the following as payment:
any kind of meat, pepper, flint arrowheads, knives, whips, leather, burlap, belts, the
thorns of a saguaro cactus, broken glass, lost teeth, ties, carved sculptures, the corpses
of domestic cats, amber, canvas shoes, sexual favors, sulfur, men’s button-up shirts, animal
skulls, and stories with SCP-2547-1 as the protagonist.2 SCP-2547-1 will store its payments
in the church and assign members of SCP-2547 to guard the pile from theft. If the payment given is deemed acceptable,
SCP-2547-1 will regurgitate 60 to 120 liters of water. If the payment does not fall into any of the
above categories, SCP-2547-1 will transform the offender into a member of the Canidae
family, who will then join SCP-2547. These altered individuals do not appear to
retain memories or intelligence from before their transformation. Departure: SCP-2547 and -1 will remain until
the next full moon after the initial SCP-2547-1 manifestation date, upon which SCP-2547-1
will lead SCP-2547 away from town, using SCP-2547 to transport the goods it obtained. An excerpt from one of SCP-2547-1’s speeches
has been provided for reference: You ask me, who am I. I ask you, where am
I? In the beginning there was the word and the
word was not a word at all, but a howl. Where am I, in the meat brain, encased in
bone, dripping with brine, sizzling with sparks? Where am I in your chemical soup? Am I sacred? Have I been on the cross? Once I was woven into you, all your kind,
deep in the pit of yourself from which you pull your wildest tales and strangest desires? I gave you the gift that saved you. I would have been your Eden, I would have
tended you as a shepherd his sheep. I taught you all how to lie. And you, though the only way you gibbering
sheep of apes survived is through deceit, you have forgotten me!? You have replaced me with a serpent who crawls
on the ground!? [SCP-2547 stops, and begins to sob.] I gave you stories. You worshipped me, once. And now you are disgusted. Heretic, you say. No. I am a martyr, like your beloved carpenter. You dare not look upon me, for fear of burning
in brimstone. So be it, then. Let me be something that you should truly
be repulsed by. You brought this on yourselves. You looked back as Sodom burned. Interviewer: Agent Miller Interview: SCP-2547-1 Opening Statement: Agent Miller had been stationed
in the town of ██████████, Utah, which had been deemed at risk for an SCP-2547-manifestation
event. The manifestation event occurred on 6/12/15. Agent Miller had been given 4.5 g of amber
and enough water to last him for 3 months. He presented the gift to SCP-2547-1, but requested
information in lieu of water.SCP-2547-1: Oh, how beautiful. And look! Look there. A fly, caught in the midst. Agent Miller: How fitting, given our situation. SCP-2547-1: Hah! A sense of humor! Oh, I like you. [SCP-2547-1 takes Agent Miller’s face in its
paws and kisses him. Agent Miller does not respond.] Hm? No? Very well, then. Now, your water. Agent Miller: I happen to be well stocked
with water for now, as it happens. SCP-2547-1: Cunning you. Perhaps it was good I didn’t have you after
all – you might have a little too much of me in you for me to be properly in you, it
seems. – pardon my pun, of course. It would have been highly embarrassing. But. What boon do you seek of me? Agent Miller: I’d like to know more about
you. What you want. Why you do this. Who you are. SCP-2547-1: Three questions! Oh, you do know your myths! How delicious. What do I want? Has anyone ever dreamed of you, my beautiful
man? I’ll bet they have. If so, you’d never want it to stop. Now, why do I do this? To put it in your terms, I’m upping my publicity,
of course. The myth field has been taken over by hacks
and milquetoasts. I’d like my old hunting grounds to myself. But you can’t spread legends the way you used
to, not anymore. So my approach has had to be…unorthodox. As to who I am, your kind knows me, all right. You know who I am. Not in the bits of you that do all your numbers
and lines, but the parts of you that paint and sing and fuck and leap. I am yours, as you are mine. You know who I am, gorgeous man. All you have to do is look. It’s right in front of you, I promise.SCP-2547-1 refused to respond to
any further questioning, and left 18 days later. Agent Miller tried to gain more information,
but SCP-2547 refused to engage in conversation on any subject except propositioning Agent
Miller. Following Agent Miller’s return, Protocol
DESERT GRASSROOTS was enacted, which consists of a many-faceted multimedia campaign to produce
narratives that involve the SCP-2547-1 entity in some way. Projects created by DESERT GRASSROOTS include: A series of children’s books centered around
modern retelling of Southwestern Native American myths and legends. A common street art design depicting a coyote
wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses, using a crucifix as a pipe. An internet meme template character in the
“advice animal” format called Kinky Coyote. A television show called “Angels of Dust,”
featuring an antagonistic cult with hedonistic beliefs, led by a man calling himself Latrans. An interactive fiction game focusing around
a pilot, call sign “Coyote One,” stranded on an unfamiliar planet after his ship crashed
in a desert. A modern surrealist art exhibit at the Boston
Isabella Gardner museum, which conveys a canid-man hybrid’s conversion to an odd religion. The pieces are done entirely in wire sculptures
and taxidermy. A collaboration album between alternative
music artist ██████ ██████ (frontman of alternative-folk band ███ ████) and
rap artist █████ ████. The album makes repeated references to an entity
called Canis, who represents their primal desires and fears which they must constantly
push down and ignore in order to be civilized humans. Following implementation of Protocol DESERT
GRASSROOTS, SCP-2547 manifestation events have decreased in frequency by 30%, but SCP-2547-1
no longer appears to accept stories as payment during events, resulting in a 15% increase
in the average number of additions to SCP-2547 per manifestation.

  1. There is a new reading I just read that involves SCP-2547, perhaps an origin point for this SCP.
