Varitas的图书馆

Rows upon rows of empty seats line the hall. You've made sure only you're here tonight—the others are all off on business, or caught up in their work. You made sure to register a week's holiday after the business down in Magaluf—your sheer exhaustion needs to be tended to.
屋中只有一排排空荡荡的座椅,你确定今晚只有你在这里——其他人不是在出差就是在忙于工作。在完成了马盖鲁夫1的工作后,你出于极度的疲劳而申请了一周假期。

In the few months since your promotion, you haven't had much time to yourself. But there have been things you've been curious about for a long time, things beyond your particular remit. You made a requisition request for a file, stuck in a filing cabinet in one of the more obscure parts of Site-01. It's pretty clear that it's something most people would like to forget.
自晋升以来已过了数个月,你一直没有什么属于自己的时间。但你对一件超出自己职权范围的事情一直充满了好奇。你申请查阅了一件文档,它被卡在Site-01的一个籍籍无名的档案柜的角落里——显然大部分人都想忘记它。

The reel begins to play—all automated, of course. Grains flicker across the screen, before bursting into an image. It's a high-school playing field. The year must be about 1975, 76. There's no audio, and the image flickers and distorts at inconvenient moment, but the forms are all clear. They're playing—rugby? American football? Something like that. It's not quite right.
胶卷开始转动——当然是自动转动的。屏幕上出现无数颗粒,然后映照出了图像。影像中是一个高中操场,拍摄的时间不是1975年就是76年。视频是无声的,图案也不时会闪烁或是扭曲,但总的内容很明白。片中的人在打——英式橄榄球还是美式足球?总之应该是这一类运动,但好像哪里不对劲。

The camera stretches, and moves around. A smiling group of people, spectators, all wave at the camera. Their movements are not constructed, or acted, or precise—they're messy and uncertain, giggling and youthful. People. Real people, sitting right in front of you. Right?
镜头开始拉伸和移动。观众们微笑着对着镜头挥手。他们的动作杂乱无章,绝非刻意而为。他们都是青春洋溢、笑声朗朗的年轻人,都是坐在你面前的真人,不是吗?

You look down at the document, but you can't quite concentrate. You remember school, don't you? Your experience was different—different place, different time—but you remember it. The disciplined format of time, the early pangs of heartache, the promise of all your dreams before you. An infinity of youth, shaped by your name. It was all ahead of you. That sunset curve over the horizon.
你看向文档,但不是很确定。你记得你上的学校,那和这里完全不同——不管是时间还是地点。但你记得这些,你记得那纪律严明的时刻表,你记得那青春的苦闷与心痛,你记得对你的前途与梦想的诺言。你记得无数年轻人站在你面前摆成你名字的形状。你记得地平线上的日出。

You do remember, right?
你记得的对吧?

Don't you remember?
你不记得了吗?

Location of Incident 4833-8C.


Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4833 activity is currently being monitored by MTF Eta-11 "Savage Beasts". Eta-11 will immediately respond to any reported incidents, ascertain the situation and attempt to contain any potential anomalies.
特殊收容措施:目前由MTF Eta-11“残忍野兽”负责监控SCP-4833的活动。

Following recent investigations by the Department of Amnestics, the nature of SCP-4833 is considered to be radically altered. SCP-4833 will be reclassified and its file altered as soon as Agent Hawthorne's debriefing has concluded.

Description: SCP-4833 is an organised group of reality-benders, ordinarily going by the name "Syncope Symphony". SCP-4833 is believed to contain between 10 and 29 individuals, all of whom exhibit similar abilities and properties.

Beginning in the late 1940s, the group's primary activity has been experimentation on youths between 15 and 18 in age, with the intention of anomalously altering them for unknown purposes. SCP-4833 was once a significant player in anomalous affairs, being particularly feared within the anomalous underworld for the kidnap and forcible alteration of numerous individuals since the late 1940s. However, their presence has significantly decreased in recent years.

Beyond this, very little is known of SCP-4833's purpose, modus operandi, or fundamental nature. They have only been encountered indirectly by Foundation agents through events SCP-4833 has orchestrated. Testimonies from several survivors indicate that SCP-4833's ultimate goal is the institution of a "state of harmony"; what this entails is unknown.

SCP-4833's anomalous properties seem to centre around memory and music. In most of the forms in which the Foundation have encountered them, they appear either as a performing orchestra or as a musical supply shop. Sightings of SCP-4833 members invariably mention that they are "masked". However, due to the amnestic effects all such individuals have suffered, further details are unclear.

SCP-4833 was first brought to the Foundation's attention in the mid-1970s. A dedicated Foundation taskforce was established shortly after with the express purpose of investigating and tracking down SCP-4833. Although this taskforce has not succeeded in tracking down any member of SCP-4833 to date, they have provided a great deal of information which has aided in containing SCP-4833 activity on a wider scale.

Timeline of SCP-4833

1947: Believed to be the beginning of SCP-4833's activities. Subjects begin to be kidnapped worldwide, with a particular concentration in the vicinity of Yellowstone National Park.

1964: First mass-experimentation, taking place in Boise, Idaho. Due to pressure from the GOC and various other organisations, SCP-4833 is believed to have relocated its primary base of operations to ████████ County, ███████.

1969: SCP-4833 opens a musical supply shop known as "Syncope Symphony" in the town of [REDACTED]. No anomalous activity initially present.

Autumn 1975: Mass cognitohazardous event taking place at Lake ███████████. Although no conclusive evidence linking this to SCP-4833 has been found, the nature of the anomaly fits SCP-4833's modus operandi.

1976: Series of experiments performed by SCP-4833 at Kirk Lonwood High School and ███████ High School. The schools and towns in question were swiftly evacuated and Foundation control was enforced. The "Syncope Symphony" musical supply shop was found abandoned upon a Foundation raid.

1977: The number of subjects kidnapped by SCP-4833 sharply decreases when compared to 1976, beginning a trend which has continued to the present. Figures in the anomalous underground have speculated that this is due to SCP-4833 achieving its goals at some point in 1976, with further kidnappings simply being a way of "fine-tuning".

1988: Last known encounter between Foundation personnel and an individual altered by SCP-4833 prior to 2019.

2019: Incident 4833-8C (see below).
