Hi, wondering what is happening with you, do you have any plans to continue with this absolutely intriguing story? You are such an awesome writer, anything you come up with to update this would be amazing.

This is probably one of the best romance stories I've ever read in my life! And it kills me that it stops here! Please please please continue this story!
Honestly, if this story is ever published and available in Europe I'll definitely buy it! That's how freaking awesome it is (or could be if the last missing chapters are added) :D
... I'd be willing to bribe you with cookies or something like that if you think it could help... I'm really getting desperate here as you can see :))

Hey! I am here to share some amazing news! This story has been added to the Slash category over on A Drop of Romeo! :)

Here's the review:

"I know I'm starting to sound like a stuck record but I adore romance stories that have a different sub-plot to them, the more extraordinary the better! This is achieved perfectly in 'Nerves' by frenchmartini. David is a student nurse that talks too much when he's nervous, uses words like 'lordy' and 'sugar' a lot rather than swear and is emotionally tormented after a painful experience in London. Having joined a roommate carer programme, David meets Ryan. Due to Spina Bifida, Ryan is a wheelchair user but he doesn't let his apparent disability get in the way. Oh no, Ryan is a skater that likes to throw himself off of ramps; not caring whether he gets hurt or not. Despite their differences in outlooks, the two men bond over afternoon movie sessions...

Both characters are damaged in their own ways. Thanks to his Spina Bifida, Ryan is in a wheelchair and is fed up of people treating him like he's made of glass or like he needs to be permanently coated in bubble wrap. Another issue that Ryan has to face is that his family found God after his diagnosis and they just wouldn't understand how he's feeling any more. David, on the other hand, is emotionally damaged after being attacked outside a nightclub in London. His fears have prevented him from sleeping safely because he's terrified someone can get in, he doesn't like to get too drunk because he's afraid of what happens and sometimes he even jumps when someone touches him; including Ryan. Frenchmartini delivers each emotion that the character is feeling perfectly. Whether it be anger, frustration or awkwardness, the reader can feel each one through the unique, first person writing style that has been used.

In the first few chapters, I felt as if David was slightly annoying due to his innocent and naïve ways; honestly, could anyone be that way all the time?; but thanks to frenchmartini's fantastic character development skills, David's annoying traits become a back drop to the real character and you begin to understand him. This is also done through the way she writes the interactions between the two protagonists. David bumbles along, mumbling and speaking too much when he's nervous whereas Ryan is down-to-earth and just says as he sees it but without being too fake; which is always a breath of fresh air when reading a character.

'Nerves' by frenchmartini is a wonderfully through out story with a plot that shows the amount of work which has been done. Research, background knowledge and a confidence to pull this story off has been used to create a masterpiece that will have you falling in love with two amazing characters – seriously, I want a Ryan in my life! 'Nerves' is still a work in progress so I'll be clicking the 'follow this story' button because I wouldn't want to miss a moment between these two characters; whether it friendly, passionate or just plain awkward; and I hope you'll be joining me!"

Keep writing (PLEASE! I AM ADDICTED!),

I love your story and the wonderful characters you've developed.
I've only been a member of FP for a few months, so I just found your story even though I realize from the dates that you wrote it several years ago.
Are you ever going to finish it? Have you already finished it and forgotten to post the ending? (I hope!)
Thank you for sharing Davey and Ryan.

UGH! I kills me that this story will probably never be completed. I was really into it. Oh, well. I just wanted you to know that Im really enjoyed it!
Hi chapter 41 . 6/5/2012
Are you still alive and writing? Don't mean to pressure you, just curious after the silence going down
Sophie84 chapter 41 . 4/25/2012
*Whimper!* Poor Ryan. I am sad the last update was over a year ago. I hope there will be more, and that you won't forever leave Ryan stuck on that day.
Quilaa chapter 41 . 4/14/2012
Since you haven't updated anything in so long, I figured you needed a little love. WE LOVE YOU, your writing is amazing. You are amazing. The stories you create are amazing. Just hope nothing has happened to you and your still alive and kicking.
