Massively Affected: Personal Fiction ft. Stephanie Bruneau

Massively Affected: Stephanie Bruneau

Welcome to Massively Affected, where I, Josh Silverman, bring on a guest and ask them the not-so-simple question: Why Mass Effect?

This week I’m joined by Stephanie Bruneau, a talented artist and streamer, and also the voice of Iris in Arcade Spirits. On this week’s episode, I talked to Stephanie about her experience diving into the Mass Effect series, and what it was like being an “early” fan to the series. We talked about filling in the gaps in the story through fan fiction, and her own experiences writing a slow burn romance for everyone’s favorite Turian, Garrus Vakarian—and this was BEFORE Mass Effect 2 made him a canonical love interest! Through personal legacies and our growing histories, we explored much of the galaxy this week and the characters that form the backbone of it.

If you enjoyed my conversation with Stephanie Bruneau, make sure to give her a follow on Twitter, check out her art on Instagram, and follow her on Twitch.

Make sure you come back next week as I’ll be chatting with my Bear Punch Media co-founder, Justin Stanley.  If this is your first episode, make sure to check out the full backlog of episodes found on But Why Tho.

The entire first season of Massively Affected will be featured right here on But Why Tho through July 13.
