Just a quick question (and this isn't meant to be rude) why are you carrying on with this when you have already started a sequel (which is brill by the way)? :D
| Ella Kovac chapter 10 . 5/13/2013
Sorry for the delays between reviews and the fact I'm not making the effort to go through every chapter!
Firstly, wow! So Nick is Bella's father o.O I'm looking forward to seeing how he treats her now and whether they'll develop a father-daughter relationship or whether they'll just continue to squabble. I'm hoping Bella forgives him and gives him a chance to try to ou things right- and if you were to weave the Kieron story in later on that could be interesting to see.
Also glad to see some army flashbacks- I do feel awfully sorry for Bella! I think you write really well for casualty and the flashbacks were really rather tangible and verging on harrowing; I can't wait to read more powerful stuff from you. I'm really enjoying this fic and I do apologise for the terrible reviews and how sporadic they are!

Oooh, I didn't realize you could favorite stories and authors!
Anyway, really loving the Bella developments- you've given her a temper which always makes things more interesting I find. She reminds me of Darrell in Malory Towers (I've been reading to my little sisters OK!) because of the hot temper. I love how her past is unraveling too- and she knows Mr Jordan! I'm definitely guessing he's her father and he left her when she was young or something.
The whole getting drunk scenario made me chuckle and though you've revealed some things about Bella's past there are still loads of unanswered questions- the scarring, how she knows Nick etc. I loved the argument with Nick, it was funny but serious at the same time and I really can't wait to find out how they know each other and why she hates him so much! It seems almost like irrational hate which is why I'm guessing there's more to this.
Can't wait to read more (though I have to go make my tea now so I'm going to have to wait D:), you've really hooked me in :D
| Ella Kovac chapter 3 . 5/12/2013
I decided to wait three chapters before reviewing seeing as if I reviewed every chapter you'd probably want to kill me (37 pointless emails probably isn't exactly the most exciting thing to receive)
So far,I'm really loving the character of Bella- obviously there's a lot more to her than what we're currently being presented but so far she seems like a typical casualty character- seems normal and nice until something dark and dangerous is exposed. I'm looking forward to seeing if and how much the whole ex-army thing will affect her and I'm already enjoying the relations she's holding with Adam.
Also interested in her depression and the whole prostitute thing; how she got there and how she got out of there etc. I also love seeing the team from an outsider's point of view- loved the little overview of the team (Abs the revolutionary, Noel the geeky receptionist,Tess the strict ward sister) because it kind of showed how a character entering the mental casualty ensemble is probably supposed to feel. I'm also looking forward to seeing how she'll react to the storylines that happened in casualty- providing, of course, you write them in because it's going to be quite difficult for you to weave her in some circumstances but I'm looking forward to seeing how you do.
I like how you're writing this too, it seems like each chapter is set out a little like a casualty episode- the equilibrium at the beginning was very believable and all the ways you're unfolding the events just strikes me as very casualtyesque (that's totally a word). I like how she's reacting to the patients- it's evident she isn't scared to take risk and I'm excited to see if she learns how to control that and what danger it gets her into as well as just
how far she'll go to save a patient's life (I'm guessing pretty far!)
I'm also curous about the surame- is she related to Mr Jordan? I daresay I'll find out somewhere along the line but for now I'm going to speculate. I think I've made this review long enough now so I'll shut up but I'm just going to forewarn you- you may have ten more of these or so!

Your writing is definitely getting better! I wish I could write half as well as you! I really enjoyed reading this and I'm looking forward to reading more.
| Trying to Understand chapter 35 . 6/10/2012
Haha! Bella suggesting they ring Nick was funny :D Another good chapter, I liked Polly mentioning Alastair and I really like reliving all these old casualty moments.
| Trying to Understand chapter 34 . 6/10/2012
I'm so annoyed for not seeing this earlier but in my defence I was diving in Canada! Anyway, I feel so sorry for Bella, blaming herself and I like the way you've written her trying to work out what to say again and again. I also like that you've managed to make it that she was pulled out first so she blames herself, it means that in the story she was more than an onlooker and actually has a reason to blame herself and convince herself it was her fault, even though it wasn't.

Bella has such a wonderful friendship with Zoe and Polly and everybody else. In a way, they are sort of alike, don't you think? Lovely chapter, cannot wait to read more. I hope Bella doesn't throw up after all that alcohol. xxx

Ah poor Jessica.( I have said that quite a lot in my reviews on this) It was thoughtful of Bella to leave a message for her. I'm also feeling sorry for her. Hope to see an update soon
| Trying to Understand chapter 33 . 5/21/2012
Aww :'( It's so sad, I actually cried because it reminded me of my little brother who also died in a car crash. It was well written and worth the wait.
| jessieleigh96 chapter 33 . 5/20/2012
Love this story! Cant wait for the next chapter :)
| Gillian Kearney Fan chapter 32 . 5/20/2012
Good chapter I enjoyed it. She's going to be distraught when she wakes. :( Bella, Zoe and Adam need to go and sit with her. Harry's funeral is going to be sad as well. I wonder if you do Jessica's leaving storyline how she goes and when she comes back, Adam can convince her to stay. Good luck with your AS levels.
| Trying to Understand chapter 32 . 5/17/2012
Why didn't I see this sooner? It was AWESOME! and I thought Bella was still quite nice in this chapter. When it looked like Nick would leave I almost said 'nooooo' out loud! It was worth the wait as always and I can't wait for the next chapter :D
| Gillian Kearney Fan chapter 30 . 5/10/2012
I hope Jessica is going to be ok after her surgery.(Unless she has to have the op by Sarah) She's going to be devastated when she wakes up to find Harry has died. :( (The scenes were heartbreaking in the show) Bella, Zoe and Adam need to go and sit with her.
Hope you can update soon.

You don't think she was very nice this chapter? I liked her. You have an amazing ability to make Bella grow as a character every chapter, it's wonderful.
I love how she manipulated Nick into doing it and then, she took over. She certainly knows what she's doing.
In your authors notes, you didn't know which bare/bear/beer it was. The correct one is BARE. There you are, :D
I hope you update rather soon. I love your fic. xx
