Episode 3 of Colonist takes you back to the home of our mysterious character where we learn a little more about you and your mission.
Colonist is a crossover fan-fiction series that tells the story of a unique individual (you, the viewer) who is on a special journey that will eventually place them as one of the founding colonists of Hadley's Hope on LV-426 and your inevitable host to an alien embryo, though the series will not end in your death. The series will contain various ASMR performances such as an interview, surgery, healing session and more.
Colonist is loosely based upon various fictional works including H. P. Lovecraft, the SCP Foundation and of course primarily Ridley Scott's Bladerunner and Alien films, to which this series pays special homage and tribute to both the franchises and their fans, as well as H.R. Giger's amazing works of art.
In this particular episode I have no problem admitting that the story may not be that strong, and that's for a few reasons. The series itself is a slow burn and is in no hurry to reach its goal. This particular episode plays upon the ASMR aspect of rambling and is also a bit of a lull between episode 2 and where the story is headed next. Lastly, I don't script anything, ever. I prefer being a performer rather than a writer, which isn't my strong suit. I prefer the spontaneity, freedom and Happy Accidents that improv affords. However, I can tell you that while nothing is scripted, I am moving towards the goal of this series: for you to become host to an alien embryo. Pretty cool, huh. ;)

Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy, especially if you're an Alien / Scott fan like I am.

What is ASMR? Why am I whispering?
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is the current (non-scientific) name given to the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering and personal attention.
My videos are not only meant to help induce ASMR or "tingles", but also help provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer while helping to relieve their anxiety relief, stress relief, insomnia relief, to help those suffering with PTSD or depression, to serve as a study aid and much more.
