|Reviews for One Saturday in July|
| starryjules chapter 6 . 11/26/2011
First, thank you, thank you for this chapter! I feel very spoiled :)
And it was simply beautiful. I feel like this is Ziva's inner-monologue that holds so true all the way to the Truth or Consequences and her conversation with Tony; so full of self-loathing and deprecation. And this is some of my favorite writing of yours thus far (and THAT is saying something!):
"This was not one of Tony's movies. If it were, she would get one last chance to make it right. At least with him. But this was the same life she had always lived, and it was one in which that which was ruined never got rebuilt.
This was the end of her. She was sorry she had not been better. She had hoped...
But there would be no more of that. Because, on this Saturday, death could not come quickly enough."

Sad chapter but interesting look into Ziva's feelings too.
| Alidiabin chapter 5 . 11/25/2011
Great look into Tony's feelings about Ziva's 'death'.

Very wonderful chapter. If only they'd sent their emails.
| Alidiabin chapter 3 . 11/25/2011
Very nice. I'm glad you didn't have to rewatch the Jeanne epis.

I am crying again...
I need to get used to this with a lot of your stories, don't I? But oh gosh, it's so worth it.
This chapter, as usual, was beautiful.
The part about her being the single woman in a camp of thirty men haunts me. I'd thought, in the beginning, that Saleem could gain no information by raping her. But I realized in the end that yea, she WAS a single woman in a camp of thirty men. And this story puts my thoughts down into words in a horrifyingly blunt and true manner. And it scares me, because I can't bear to think that Ziva has suffered so much.
Favourite sentence: "Hoping that Ari could be helped, hoping that her father would change, hoping that Tony would love her, hoping that Michael could be saved, hoping that Gibbs would find a way to not leave her behind...hoping, when she'd never been given any reason to hope." It's so very true, isn't it?

I thought it was sad but good. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving too.

This one made me cry.
My poor Ziva.
Such a sad, sad albeit well written piece.
I hope she can have a happy Saturday next time.

Excellent, as always.

Freakin' awesome. Love the anger at her, love the desperation. You nailed it.
| Gabs chapter 5 . 11/20/2011
I kinda want to cry right now. That last line hurt in all the best ways. (I also love how it echoes his 'couldn't live without you' line.)
His imagining Ziva drowning was also touching. I love that even though part of him is angry at her, he still thinks she didn't deserve to be scared.

i can so visualize this and the aftermath...you know, palmer (agent black lung) fetching him from the bar, mcgee and abby helping nurse the hangover with a worried palmer pacing about...
thank you for sharing, looking forward to more, more, more :D

Okay, that was awesome. Best one yet. His anger, anguish...captured perfectly, I think.
| Anonymous033 chapter 5 . 11/20/2011
I am crying right now so I might not be able to write very coherently...
... But you just took this and tore me to bits and pieces! And it's so, so, so HEARTBREAKING that he's angry at her and he's angry and them and he's frightened for her and I just...
I don't know what to say anymore, except that the last sentence killed me.

That was good but sad. I hope you are having a good rainy Sunday. I like to run/walk outside on Sundays but oh well. I liked last week's episodes of both shows, did you?
