Totally fantastic. I absolutely loved the first paragraph, where Tony is drinking to dull the pain of losing Ziva. That's totally how I saw it happening in the scenes they didn't show on TV.
I also really, really liked the second paragraph when you say he'll "leave here with her or not at all." Not that I want to shamlessly plug my own works, but I wrote something very similar to that in my fic "Walls." A friend who read it told me I should take that bit out because it made Tony sound "desperate," but I was like, "hell no!" You could even tell in the episode TorC that he was resigned to his fate; he would kill Saleem or die trying. Your second paragraph captured his internal monologue perfectly.
This was so brilliant and I thank you for sharing it.

Wow...just...wow. I am in awe of the way you write Ziva. I find her difficult because I feel she is a tough nut to crack and when I write her she comes off as too girly. Thus, she is the strong silent type in most of my fic, or her dialogue is light.
This fic was achingly beautiful and I cannot wait to read Tony's POV. You have such a way with words, Zae. Seriously. You rock.

) absaloutely gorgeous and I'm sorry that I haven't been able to come and visit before now! I liked Ziva's part more than Tony's I think but they are both extrordinary and I love the bold captions at the start and the lone sentence at the end. Great job as usual ) jules

If only... The last verse is my favorite. It pretty much sums up my views on the two of them. Sadly, very sadly, I no longer think the bozos running the show can give them this kind of resolution.

Need I say it? I suppose I do, this is a review after all... You've blown me away with this chapter; the intensity and beauty of it is unbelievable. I don't know if it's because I'm not a native English speaker, but it truly feels like reading poetry, reading over each sentence several times to taste each word, each image, each heart-breaking or soul-inspiring phrase. I'd write my favourite sentence in this review but at this point I can't make up my mind between all of those intricate, delicate, powerful sentences. The last line however is so simple and completing and hopeful that it has to be mentioned.
Thank you so much for dedicating this to me. I feel humbled and simultaneously honoured by your gesture.

And again, you've added just more beauty to what was already considered a masterpiece. Bravo!

"And as he feeds her a steady diet of joy...". Oh, how I wish. This was just lovely. You touch my soul, Zaedah.
