Christopher (or Chris, as he usually goes by) is normal. Thoroughly normal, a clever and bored slacker and thrill-seeker who doesn’t live up to his potential in anything: he’s smart and could go far, but he doesn’t care enough to focus and does the youtube show as a way to assuage his boredom and further excuse to slack off. Certainly not for anything more.
He’s lying. Chris hasn’t been normal since his sophomore year of college, when everything changed: car accident, friend totaled his car when he hit a tree, Chris hit his head, he was actually pretty lucky all things considered. Well, except for the powers: since then, Chris has been able to touch objects and go into rooms and feel the emotional resonance of things attached to them. And he hasn’t liked it one bit, especially after he’s begun to realize things thanks to his powers that he didn’t want to know, like touching a table in his apartment and realizing his girlfriend was cheating on him with his roommate. And it basically went on from there.
Since then, he’s pretty much been looking for escapism, and with helping host the youtube show he and his friends are doing, he thinks he’s found it. Because looking for pretend shit in the dark is really so much more bearable than the real shit, and it’s pretty funny to play up the act.
