"House of Cards" re-write, sequel to "Card Castle,", part 2 of the "Deck of Cards" series.
Won "Impressive Characterization of Lance" in NF's Season 9 Awards.
In the wake of the publicized trial against Lou Pearlman, and recording of the highly anticipated second *NSYNC album, No Strings Attached, the boys look to hire a new bass player that can help promote their new sound at their live shows. That’s where Lance Bass’s friend, Annaleigh ‘Ace’ Carr, comes in. However, all bets might be off even before all the cards were even laid out on the table.
Lance Bass: Southern, compassionate, and fun loving fifth member of the ever popular boy band *NSYNC. Recovering from the surprising, sudden, and public court case win against the group’s creator, it looks like the boy band has everything going for them. With a new manager, new music, a new live band member in the form of his old friend, and new lives free from the master puppet Lou Pearlman the only way they can go is up. With his puppet strings clipped, Lance takes the time to learn about himself with no strings holding him back.
Annaleigh ‘Ace’ Carr: Smart, feisty, witty, sometimes scatterbrained, perfectionist; all the things that make up a hard working bass player. It was all the attributes that caught the attention of *NSYNC with the intention of hiring her as the new bass player for their live band. Traveling around the world, seeing the sights, meeting the people, and working with five of the hottest men on the planet; who wouldn’t want a job like that? She’s used to being in the background, following in Lance’s footsteps, but with her job on the line, she has to learn how to put herself in the forefront and deal with secrets that will shake her foundation to the core.
What's a girl to do? Fresh out of college, a public relations degree in hand. All set to be the next agent or publicist, the next Ari to Vince if you will. And suddenly, one interview with Clive Davis, and poof! Here I am, slave- I'm sorry, personal assistant- to a man that millions would kill to be with. But what if our business arrangement becomes more? What if black and white clearly makes what were doing wrong? It's like a drug though, I'm addicted to him.
Four years later, Bianca and Taylor still haven't managed to rebuild the friendship that was ruined by one mistake. But a life changing event for Bianca may bring them back together...or it might just open up old wounds all over again.
Just paint the picture of a perfect place They got it better than what anyone's told ya They'll be the king of hearts And you're the queen of spades Then we'll fight for you like we were your soldiers I know we got it good, but they got it made And the grass is getting greener each day I know things are looking up But soon they'll take us down Before anybody's on our way
They got all the right friends in all the right places So yeah, we're going down They got all the right moves in all the right places I said everybody knows where we're going
Do you think I'm special, do you think I'm nice? Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces? Between the noise you hear and the sounds you like Are we just sinking in the ocean of faces It can't be possible that rain could fall Only when it's over our heads The sun is shining every day, but it's far away
It don't matter what you see, I know I could never be Someone that'll look like you It don't matter what you say, I know I could never fake Someone that could sound like you
All the right friends in all the right places They got all the right moves in all the right places I said everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going Yeah, we're going down
