Ashlee and Dana have both been accepted into the Disney College Program and will be roommates. In order to get to know each other before they move into their apartment they decided to email each other. Ashlee is a very peppy girl who makes friends easily and is hopeful that she and Dana will become lasting friends, her emails are full of smiley faces and exclamation points and her love of Disney is very apparent.
Dana is a trans who wanted to meet Ashlee and give her a chance to change her living arrangements if being with a tran was not something she could live with since they will be together for five months. Dana is also not a lover of Disney and not a peppy, happy go lucky girl like Ashlee and her first impression of Ashlee was not encouraging.
Neither girl wanted to be the one to change anything and so Ashlee agree to move in with Dana. From their first meeting there was no doubt that they would not be getting along, Ashlee needs the TV on at night to fall asleep and Dana can’t fall asleep with noise. Ashlee loves Disney and watches it every night over and over again and Dana is not a huge Disney fan even though she is part of the program. Ashlee wakes up at six every morning waking Dana who can’t fall back to sleep and a conversation Dana overheard referring to Dana as not natural just made matters worse.
It was a burning pot that finally got the two roommates to communicate and explain their problems with each other, a talk that led to them becoming friends and possibly more because Ashlee has a secret she hasn’t shared.
A story of two girls who couldn’t be more opposite forming opinions of each other before even learning about each other. A story of two girls who finally see each other in a new light and appreciate what they see, even leading to more than friendship.
