I've always loved this a little bit more than I should have.

I read this a month or two ago, when led to the DamonAffleck community after looking for fanfiction for just one movie they were part of. I've never enjoyed RPF, I always thought of it as the forbidden fruit.

I read this story and I fell in love. I'm up to 2005 in this whole community, after going through pages and pages and fic after fic.

Your's has remained my favourite, because the personality is so spot on. It reads poetic, and it feels so true to me. Not as in the idea of this being something that ever happened, but in the fact that I can feel and empathize in this situation you've created. It bleeds real, as if this could be a reality someone lives in, like this could be the circumstances things have happened in.

I had never watched a Ben Affleck or Matt Damon movie, with the exception to Dogma, before reading this. Right away after, I watched Good Will Hunting, and I now own an absurd amount of Matt Damon films bought off the Wallmart sales rack.

This story has ate a large portion of my life. I finally accessed this account I've never used, on this site I've only been familiar with in archives, to thank you. You're a fantastic writer, and I don't think I'll ever forget this story. It led to me finding a large part of myself that I didn't know existed, that I only found because I garnered an interest for these fuckboys movies.

I could never thank you enough.
