Why read a novel when you can experience one by jacking into a brain dance box and inserting yourself into a story. The opportunity to experience the story opposite of a beautiful starlet is of course an even bigger draw.
One of those starlets is Shauni Kalnier, an actress under contract with DMS. She is the second most popular brain dance star behind Catherine Bergenox, which the press likes to play up as a big rivalry.
Shauni had a recent career set back when her new season of brain dance videos were stolen and reshot by Bergenox. Shauni disappeared for several months in humiliation before resurfacing in the news after being held hostage by a group of thieves who raided the Tsunami Arms facility while she happened to be there visiting a friend. The incident helped rekindle her career.
