So painful and bittersweet and gorgeous. I love seeing Trip's thougts run the gamut of extremes--fantasies of grabbing the axe and putting an end to it, to all the reasons why he can't...to wishing that guy would come over and use the axe on him. I like how he puts it all in perspective. It still sucks, but they'll figure it out. Hope.
TPTB took the easy way out, turning T/T into an angst-fest in Season 4. I think it would have been really cool to see them struggle instead to salvage their friendship from the ashes of their would-be love affair. Hope, as you say, for something good to come out of the tragedy. The angst would have been there, sure, but it would have been sweeter, I think. But it would have needed screentime, and that was in short supply in S4.

Good job! I like how honorable Trip is in this story. You have him setting aside his pain and analyzing things rationally - logically! I like how you do not minimize his pain, but at the same time you show that he is a strong man and can move forward. I especially liked the part where he considers what would have happened if T'Pol had gone home to marry Koss earlier.
Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
