Layla showed up on Lance's doorstep one night with bruises, cuts, broken ribs...and a shattered soul from being in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend, Lucas. Secretly in love with her since they were kids growing up in Mississippi together, he vows that he will heal not only the physical injuries but the soul beneath them. When they start dating and she enters therapy to repair what Lucas took away from her, she thinks she's on the road to recovery.
But she finds herself left with zero self-esteem and respect for herself and the body that still has scars from years of abuse. The only thing that makes her feel good about herself is dancing – especially when her teacher tells her she's the best pole dancer in the entire class. When an opportunity presents itself to dance for money, she takes it, knowing that it's the only thing that will make her feel worth her salt again.
But she knows she can't tell her new boyfriend. And she has yet to learn that the cycle of abuse doesn't always stop when you get out of the relationship...especially if you don't learn to love yourself.
Miracles. They are said to happen every day, but who really believes that stuff anyway? Certainly not Alana. For her, life couldn’t get much worse. But what happens when she’s given a chance at a life she could have had. Where a different path could have led her? Welcome to the Enraptured Dreams for the Disillusioned.
Elise just moved to LA, is busy juggling graduate school, some semblance of a social life, and her brand new job as a receptionist at an agent's office. Obviously it is not in her best interest to strike up a friendship with her boss's most important, most famous client, but Elise was never very good at following instructions.
Ella Tennyson is different. She's quirky and there's not a person on earth who could explain why she acts the way she acts, or does the things she does. But she doesn't care, because she's her own. Justin is completely caught up in stereotypes, every thing perfect and every thing pretty. But when he has the opportunities to try and figure out Ella, he finds himself more intrigued than he would like to admit. Will he catch the one girl whom no one else has managed to even run in the same race with? Will he try to understand the things about her that irritate, yet draw him to her? Will he succeed in establishing the fact that he can see outside of a box? Or will he simply end up locking Ella in a cage that she's afraid to get out of?
Alexis' Taylor's dream had finally come true. She was now working in the A&R department for the record label that she had dreamed of working for since she was in high school. But she took the job at a cost. She had to leave Orlando and move to Los Angeles for the position. And leave behind everything and everyone she'd ever known.
She likes LA. She loves the job that she was hired to do.
She loves who she begins to work for even more.
But when dating someone that she works directly with jeopardizes her job, she's forced to make a choice.
And making that choice, she finds, is more difficult than she had expected.

It's a warm summerday and the guys from *NSYNC are hanging out in their living room. When all of them decide to go to the beach, they fall into a black whole and wake up in five different universes. Can they find back together?
All different universes are taken from these Animes:
Highway run Into the midnight sun Wheels go round and round You're on my mind Restless hearts Sleep alone tonight Sending all my love Along the wire
They say that the road Ain't no place to start a family Right down the line It's been you and me And lovin' a music man Ain't always what it's supposed to be Oh, girl, you stand by me I'm forever yours Faithfully
Circus life Under the big top world We all need the clowns To make us smile Through space and time Always another show Wondering where I am Lost without you
And being apart Ain't easy on this love affair Two strangers learn to fall in love again I get the joy of rediscovering you Oh, girl, you stand by me I'm forever yours Faithfully
I don't know what the fuck I expected to happen just at this moment, but nothing does. He just looks at me like I've just told him that his dinner was ready. I have to admit, I expected a little more. His next question though, infuriates me. Which turns out to be the one good thing he's still good at.
