So not only did you manage to hook T/Z up, get me to like and mourn and hope for baby!fic (the monument scene was really touching) but your Tim voice was hilarious and spot on and you gave me Tim/Abby too! This was brilliant, touching, sweet, true to the characters and a really entertaining read! Your DiNozzo who's indignant that Tim hasn't recognized he's changed is perfect! The kitten that hates Ziva is too funny! And I love how they all let each other in just that little bit more. Great work! :)

I enjoy the humor injected in your writing. My favorite quotes:
"Still, silence is one of those things, along with bookshelves, that geeks are universally
compelled to fill."
(I wouldn't call myself a geek but my sister certainly has. Like McGee, I am a rambler, an I have before taken great pride and fun in rearranging a bookcase in alphabetical order)
"Insanity starts with the first debate with inanimate objects."
(It is also a product of boredom. Though, my motto is "Dont suffer from insanity, enjoy every minute of it.")
"No misspelled, nearly undecipherable phrases containing words with numbers and single letter expressions invented by teenagers with ADD."
(As a teenager myself, I have to say that this is so true.)

i haven't read this in a long time- but I'm going back to read it again!
I'll miss your stories- whenever they pop up, I get all excited. May your next adventure be rewarding!

I loved this story, and all your others, and am sorry you are "retiring". You and your stories will be greatly missed.
Thank you for the hours of reading pleasure you have given us.

What a way to end this! Really excellent writing. I often wish I had your way with words, but then I would not be myself, huh?
Do it your way - all the way.
With a lotta love, dear zaedah.

Yay McGee and Abby!
A perfect valedictory, chère Zaedah. Have fun in Ye Olde Mysterious Retirement.

I loved this last installment - and was just so excited to see an addition to this lovely story. I'll be sad to see you go, but I've always enjoyed your writing. Thank you.

I could not possibly read an Epilogue when it was posted- without reading the story first...so with that in mind I started this morning - pj clad - on a wonderful Timmy adventure.
This story was so lovely and beautifully written - you really know how to write these characters perfectly..I enjoyed the whole day and just now - your final chapter...WoW...and in time for bed too and visions of this great Team dancing in my head just a couple of days before another NCIS Christmas Episode...two years is a long time for one story. That is dedication. Well done!
This was wonderful of you to give me this early Chrstmas gift...I am taking it as that. And to know that you are now retiring. I shall go back and read all of your stories now- these wonderful treasures you have left for our enjoyment.
Very best wishes to you.

What a lovely epilogue.
And I am crying, not because the story is sad but because I will have no more to read from you.
It really is a sad day in NCIS fandom!

You're such a beautiful writer, thank you so much for sharing this story with us :)

An epilogue for Symbiosis, one of my favorite stories ever?! I got both excited and nervous, and only to read your author's note that you're retiring from the world of fanfiction. Now, despite the joyous epilogue, I'm sad. You're one of best writers on here that I've come across, and you will definitely be missed. Wishing you all the best, and this, I have to say, was a great way to give a farewell. :)

I loved it, just like I loved the rest of the story (which I didn't discover until long after it was finished). Your writing is absolutely genius, and the unique but apropos phrases you come up with, such as the use of 'Santa used a Sharpie' here, will be greatly missed.
Enjoy your retirement, though, and thanks for all the stories you've given us. Will your archives be allowed to remain here for a while, or are you planning to take things down?
| mia58 chapter 32 . 12/16/2012
What a sweet ending to the story. And of course, full of the original and unique Zaedahisms that have made all your offerings a pleasure to read.
As I've told you before, I will dearly miss your writing. You are one of the best of the best. I hope you find fulfillment in your next endeavor. Now, I'm off to read this wonderful story from beginning to end. Good luck my friend.

Witty, humorous, and charming!

How I have only read this now is beyond me, but this a such a gem! Honestly, only for you would the word 'eloquent' used to describe your writing be said as overused, but it really is eloquent. Your writing is like pieces of art. If you told me that there is a museum with a collection of your writings, I would believe it. (Give me the location, please!) I've read a few of your other NCIS works as well, and your style is so ingenious, sometimes I find myself too dumb to read it and/or follow through.
I have a soft spot for McGee, and you just made him all the more lovable in my books. You give such understated strength to your characters; it's a delight! And through the eyes of McGee is just beautiful, because in a way, he is the most normal, despite his own intelligent MIT graduate self. Makes him all the more relatable sometimes. It was an amazing journey for Tony & Ziva, but even more, a wonderful look into McGee's mind, so observant. Perplexed at times, moving at others; and the humor can't be forgotten.
Yours is a story that would be so interesting to see readers pick out their favorite line in a chapter because each line is so well-crafted that the readers' choices will be so varied, which is not what just anyone can do. Your prose is very poetic, if that even makes sense. But I'm sure you understand since it appears you like Shakespeare and sonnets. Just lovely! Thanks for writing!
