ASMR? What?

National Sleep Foundation article touches on the basics. Wikipedia delves into further detail, with links to a few scientific articles, and similar or opposite phenomena.

Here is the This American Life episode that turned those wonderful, but puzzling, memories from my childhood into something real in my present.

The New Yorker magazine has a video article about ASMR, as does the The University of Sheffield: The Science Behind ASMR. Here's the study referred to in the video: More than a feeling: Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is characterized by reliable changes in affect and physiology



Where ASMR Meets Fantasy Literature

The Gold Standard: Goodnight Moon's Babblebrook Series A great combination of creative storytelling, beautiful settings and props, and skillful ASMRtistry. This ongoing series is improving with each episode. I don't actually watch most ASMR videos, I just listen and fall asleep. But these are worth watching.

Valimerence Series This five part series by giginotguyguy has five episodes, four characters, and an immersive fantasy world with wonderful things like crickets, rivers, humming nymphs, and portals.

Magical girl makes a potion for you. This fantasy adventure story by Mystical ASMR is audio played over a still photo. Here's the sequel, with more humor and a collaborator named Daisy Banaisy.

The Healer Umbergnome ASMR creates a charmingly enthusiastic magical healer who makes wonderful sounds as he tries to cure what ails you.

Miss Synchronicity becomes a wood elf healer, with wonderful singing and humming in a real forest with wind in the trees. Here are two of my favorites: ASMR Singing Elf Role-play (LOTR) Enchanted Forest, and ASMR Wood Elf Healing For Stress

Aramanthius is an ambitious series. Structured like a full fantasy novel, with a magical setting and multiple characters, it stopped after 15 chapters, but was good enough to listen to all the way through without video.
