continued Thatfucker discussion

Since we've been kicked off FFA for the week, please feel free to continue the anon discussion here. Apologies if this is a big flop - I've never made a DW community before!

The rules are vaguely the same as they are over on FFA. Please refrain from being too much of an asshole, making personal attacks, posting identifying information or engaging in transfail.

ETA: If there's information you'd like to see archived (journal/blog posts related to Andy, etc.), please dump it here and link to it from the main post for discussing.

So much respect for how this compromise was arrived at.

Mods, you're doing a spectacular job.

Abbey, would you be willing to talk more about the "club"? Was it all Andy's idea? What was the original intention? Was it financially motivated or was it a way of Andy trying to get more followers or to control the people around him?

Saw this and yeah, I'm willing. It's my evening off and I'm avoiding cleaning the kitchen.

The organization was Andy's idea, but it wasn't a bad one. Things were getting pretry out of control among costumed performers ("Hollywood Ambassadors" as we were hopefully nicknamed by the Hollywood Entertainment District office). The job was entirely unregulated. All you had to do was show up in costume and pose with tourists and collect cash tips. Yes, really it was glorified panhandling, but there were a lot of really good performers who honestly delighted visitors. Thing is, Hollywood Boulevard is a giant letdown for tourists. There are a handful of kitchy attractions (like the wax museum and the various "Celebrity Home" tours) and the stars and handprints... and beyond that a lot of stripper stores and head shops. Having characters and celebrity look-alikes to take pictures with was legitimately adding to the experience.

That said, there was getting to be a ridiculous excess of performers, many of whom were dirty, aggressive, or dangerously unstable. Add to that several characters who were VERY aggressive in asking for money - a huge (and illegal) issue. We were NOT allowed to set prices or demand money - we could only say that we worked for tips.

Since the LAPD was starting to crack down on the characters, the "job" was in real danger of being made illegal - and after we left, it WAS outlawed for a time (though the ban was later recinded). There were a number of us who were quite professional in our behavior and took pride in our work - and took great exception to characters who not only made us look bad, but who cost us income - bad characters = fewer tips for everyone.

We were popular - well, I was. I don't just say that because of what I know about Andy's true behavior, I've been back twice to visit since then and am in touch with several of my fellow ambassadors to this day. They liked ME. And Andy was plenty good enough to be part of the unofficial "professionals." In fact, Andy showed every costume weapon to the LAPD and had them directly approved for use on the Boulevard.

Anyway, the LAPD had called a massive meeting of all the characters to lay out what the laws and rules for our "job" were. We stayed after and talked to one of the lead officers (Mike Shea, who is in the documentary I linked to in the parent thread). We floated the idea of setting up a quasi-union, with rules they'd approved, to give the officers on patrol a level of confidence in the "good" performers.

There was no significant money involved - we asked for a $5 membership fee to cover the cost of photocopying the "official guidelines" and of a button to indicate membership. We paid the expense of copying and buying button supplies ourselves up front. We about broke even and kept receipts until we left the street to be sure.

The "rules" were overly detailed - much like the uniform guidelines Andy later published as a part of DAYD. we had a few meetings and even had a "governing board." It was a legit effort to protect ourselves and our livelihood, nothing more.

Andy didn't *need* a club to get control over other performers. There were people who almost joined his channeling cult as it was, but this organization came along late enough that it was irrelevant. It was a last ditch effort to keep our jobs legal and reasonably lucrative.

It failed. In part because Andy made it overly complex, but mostly because it was an unsustainable system to begin with. It was less than a year later that we ended up leaving.

Brittany's eulogy, written by Andy

"We have lost our first" seems like such a gross fucking way to end this, like he's trivializing her death by comparing them to all of his Dayd nonsense. Again conflating fiction and reality and doing it deliberately; this is a running theme with him. He's done it many times in the SPN fandom (comparing his relationship with Brittany to Destiel; using fandom oriented language/references in unrelated posts) and it always pings me as phoney. Just a way Andy can steer the conversation back to himself and reel more people in.

And I can't tell you how much the 'M'Bidney' thing sickens me, because it stinks of something one of Andy's childlike "alters" might have named her and in the context of the eulogy it's so, so gross.

Of all the things that have really happened to Andy, this one has really happened the most.

(Anonymous) 2015-04-16 06:21 am (UTC)(link)
http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=267096#cmt267096

TL;DR: Andy is randomly approached/sexually harrassed by a guy who compares himself to Tony Stark. Asks Andy if he'd rather fuck Thor or Black Widow. Andy apologizes for the wickedness of malekind and nobly promises to do everything in his power to rescue all the miladies.

This is the biggest pile of utter steaming bullshit I have ever read, and it shows. It reads like a lie; like he's studied the most popular sexual harassment story posts like this on Tumblr and made himself a list of things to cover. Pure note-bait, nothing more.

Channeling questions

(Anonymous) 2015-04-16 08:04 am (UTC)(link)
The channeling aspect of all this is one of the most intriguing/disturbing parts for me. The fact that Andy had 100+ alters and kept track of all of them -- even, as Abbey said somewhere, waking up from a deep sleep in-character -- is just so bizarre to me and I'd like to know more about this behavior.

My questions are:

1) Is there any evidence TF is still engaged in channeling? And what was the most recent confirmed incident?

2) Without trying to be insensitive, is channeling, as Andy describes it, connected to any particular mental illness or disorder?

3) What's the motive? To feel special? To make others think he's special? Keeping track of 100+ alters sounds fucking exhausting to me, and the way Abbey described it, it was hell being around him. So what's the motive for him? Elaborate roleplaying/larping that was enjoyable for him (even with all the work it involved) so he decided to rope other people into it?

I can answer this one, because as much as I hate to admit it, I operated very much like Andy re: channeling and "selling realities" when I was much younger.

Andy's main fix is control and fucking with people, but there's tons of ways to do that. Using fictional characters has a certain appeal in fandom, but it will also cost you a high number of people who will disconnect from you when the realize what's going on. There's also a good chance it will eventually get revealed outside your inner circle and make you a laughing stock. It's risky.

For those reasons, I don't think Andy just decided "Hey, fiction and alternate universes, good enough!" I think he's actually driven (as I was) to indulge in a very severe form of escapist fantasy. This actually isn't uncommon in fandom, where you can any number of people who believe they are fic-kin or therians or into "alternative universes" or any number of other things. What's different is his level of immersion and his ability to manipulate other people into enriching his fantasies. Andy wasn't just Jordan Wood online and to a couple of friends. He lived his whole life as Jordan Wood.

But I've gotten ahead of myself. People may not understand what I mean by "enriching the fantasy".

I'll share a personal story that I'm ashamed of now, but will demonstrate it pretty well, I think.

When I was about 9, I was babysitting my younger brother and got bored. Normal children will play pretend. What I did was tell my younger brother (age 7) that I heard noises outside the house. I gradually ramped up the tension until I told him I thought robbers were breaking in. I got a kitchen knife and told my brother to hide with me in the closet. We did, at which point he started to cry with fear. I wanted to laugh because I couldn't believe he believed what I was saying so strongly.

I also felt enough guilt that I called off the "game" at that point, though I never admitted what I had done. The thieves were simply "gone now, it's safe." This ability to feel guilt is what prevented me from turning into Andy Blake as an adult. Otherwise, I'm certain I would be very much like him.

I would later do similar things to my friends, involving fictional characters instead of robbers breaking into houses. It makes the fantasy so much more real, because they mirror it back to you, and they really, really believe it. The lies may not be real, but their emotional reactions are.

I knew this was what Andy was doing when I heard that he made Abbey & co tell him in detail why it was all true. Yeah, it demonstrates how convinced they are, which is reassuring that your game is running smoothly, but more importantly it helps you put the knowledge that it's all fake away in the dark little corner of your brain where you don't have to look at it. That knowledge is always there, but you can "forget" it for extended periods of time. If you're lying about your own past, you may tell the same story so often you "forget" it isn't true until you ponder it carefully. You want to feel like a hero who saves the world? You don't need to actually do it, if you're like Andy. Just get someone to look at you like you are. To tell you you are. Get them to believe it with such conviction you become that thing in their eyes.

Some people wonder whether Andy really believes his own lies. I don't think he does. Not really. Not the way Abbey did. Not the way Diamond did. When I was younger, it took me a while to figure out that not everyone has that little piece of hidden knowledge that tells them the yarn you're spinning together is all lies. I still have a harder time understanding people like Abbey than I do Andy, and that's not a pleasant thing to admit.

What you have to understand is that getting people to really buy this stuff is not intellectual per se, though being able to argue for the possibility certainly helps. You have to make them want to believe so strongly that they have to believe it. You can't do it with everyone, no matter how "good" you are. People need to be unfulfilled by a big large of reality or their lives before they'll accept a new one. And you have to feed it to them slowly, boiling the frog. The best way is to let them think it's their idea, as Andy did.

Breadcrumbs trails. They work.

Abridged version: He did it because it was fun for him and made his fantasy life more exciting.

DAYDverse "diversity"

(Anonymous) 2015-04-16 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?page=2#comments

“Not even!” Seamus started to shake his head, then thought better of it and closed his eyes, moaning softly before he spoke again. “It’s one of the old ones from my Nana – Gaelic. All the Ministry-approved spells are off of nice, proper, respectable Latin, you know, but the Celts had their own brand of magic, even if it got pushed off as all backward. It’s mostly died out now, but some of the old ones still remember a bit here and there, mostly hexes and jinxes and the odd witch’s charm, you know, for tellin’ what kind of baby you’ll be having and the like.”

1. Irish people usually call their language Irish when speaking English. Some people even take the position that calling it "Gaelic" is an offensive attempt to separate the language from the culture/nation-state.

2. "The Celts" were a collection of different peoples and tribes, often separated by land and sea, who were part of the same language group and shared some cultural elements. Why Seamus attributes what would almost certainly be Irish-specific magical practices to "the Celts" is beyond me. I suspect it's because in Andy's mind (and in the minds of many other people) the Celts are super-mysterious, ~*magical*~ people who are exotic enough to be interesting but still familiar to the layreader.

You know what I mean. People wearing robes in forests who disappeared with their magic into the mists of time, instead of a group who underwent linguistic and cultural changes.

This is even more hilarious considering what follows:

“His’d be Erse, not Gaelic. We’re not the same, and we whipped Scotland at Quidditch last year.” Seamus pointed out defensively.

Erse is a form of Gaelic. The statement doesn't make any sense. And unless Seamus was a scholar, it's so fucking unlikely he would use that word to begin with:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erse

Erse can be:
-an alternative name for any Goidelic language, especially Irish, from Erische.
-a 16th-19th Century Scots[1] name for Scottish Gaelic


I presume Seamus is using it in the second (ironically) non-Irish sense. Why a blue collar kid would be using an archaic 16th to 19th century term for a language he doesn't speak is beyond me. I assume because Andy has a kink for sprinkling his writing with terms that are unfamiliar to his readers to demonstrate how well-read he is.

HA.

Lundy Bancroft on what abusers get out of their abuse (and why Andy will never change)

(Anonymous) 2015-04-16 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm reading through Why Does He Do That? and while this is geared toward partner abuse specifically, this section really brought thanfiction to mind. I'll post as a sub-comment to this thread.

Re: Lundy Bancroft on what abusers get out of their abuse (and why Andy will never change)

(Anonymous) 2015-04-16 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Over time, the man grows attached to his ballooning collection of comforts and privileges. Here are some of the reasons why he may appear so determined not to stop bullying:

1. The intrinsic satisfaction of power and control

The abusive man gains power through his coercive and intimidating behaviors—a sensation that can create a potent, thrilling rush. The wielder of power feels important and effective and finds a momentary relief from life’s normal distresses.

It isn’t the woman’s pain that appeals to him; most abusers are not sadists. Yet the heady rush of power is the bare beginning of what the abuser gains through his mistreatment of his partner.

2. Getting his way, especially when it matters to him the most

A romantic partnership involves a never-ending series of negotiations between two people’s differing needs, desires, and preferences. Many of the differences that have to be worked out are matters of tremendous importance to the emotional life of each partner, such as:

Are we spending Christmas (or whatever holidays are most important to a particular couple) with my relatives, whom I enjoy, or with your relatives, who get on my nerves and don’t seem to like me?

Are we eating dinner tonight at my favorite restaurant, or at a place that I’m tired of and where the children seem to get wound up and irritating?

Am I going to have to go alone to my office party, which makes me feel terrible, or are you going to come with me even though you would rather spend your evening doing almost anything else on earth?

Your happiness in a relationship depends greatly on your ability to get your needs heard and taken seriously. If these decisions are taken over by an abusive or controlling partner, you experience disappointment after disappointment, the constant sacrificing of your needs.

He, on the other hand, enjoys the luxury of a relationship where he rarely has to compromise, gets to do the things he enjoys, and skips the rest. He shows off his generosity when the stakes are low, so that friends will see what a swell guy he is. The abuser ends up with the benefits of being in an intimate relationship without the sacrifices that normally come with the territory. That’s a pretty privileged lifestyle.

Proof Andy's lying about Brittany's NZ hike & wrock interests

(Anonymous) 2015-04-17 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
Elements of this will be crossposted to The Pit.

Andy uses Brittany to get stuff he wants. We know this:

http://andythanfiction.tumblr.com/post/39609134107/looking-for-a-music-human-to-fulfill-a-promise-to

Then Brittany (short version for the n00bs: flawless, amazing, my life partner, brutally murdered in spring 2011, no I’m never gonna be over it). She got her teeth into the album project and made it her baby. She believed in it, loved it passionately. She pulled in contacts, made deals, called up old friends like Bobby Singer trying to pull off a surprise party for a Big Bad. And it was working. She’d gotten about a half dozen professional musicians into it, lined up studio time, and even found a producer with professional equipment and experience.

And then she was murdered, two weeks before we were supposed to start recording.

It’s come to mean a lot more to me since; become a symbol of all the things she left unfinished.


So I went back to the DAYD facebook community to looked at the time before Brittany died. There WAS a flurry of wrock-related activity before her death, but none of it was from Brittany. NONE. It was entirely Andy:

http://imgur.com/a/DZRL3

I've included all the comments re: planning wrock and censored people's real names, with the exception of Andy (though I've left CFC's fandom initials). If you see a white space where a name should be, pretend it actually says NOT BRITTANY.

Because she never commented on the wrock project. At all.

Brittany was a member of this comm. She posted on it. It should be clear from the comments above that this was the central organizing point for wrock. And there is not a single comment from Brittany on the matter anywhere.

What DID she post about?

How she didn't want to let Andy down because HE wanted to do the NZ hike so badly:

http://i.imgur.com/2RIBLi7.png

Yes, the hike he sold in her eulogy, like this:

http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=262744#cmt262744

Brittany had her heart set on the New Zealand trek.

...

She used to say without really joking at all that she'd do it over her own dead body if need be.

And so I will.

Re: Proof Andy's lying about Brittany's NZ hike & wrock interests

(Anonymous) 2015-04-17 12:14 am (UTC)(link)
I always wonder; did Brittany have social media accounts of her own? Tumblr, LJ, etc? It seems like it should be simple to look back and see whether she'd ever mentioned LotR/NZ a lot or posted a bunch of wizard rock.

Sluagh

(Anonymous) 2015-04-17 02:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Sluagh continues to be...special. I just thought I'd drop this here as an example of how people talk in this thing:

“SHUT YOUR FECKIN’ FACES!” Neville whirled, his jaw dropping in disbelief as he saw Kevin standing barely a foot away from both of them, his arms crossed tightly as he glowered at the two wizards. “I don’t know me arse from a hole in me head about what you’re yammerin’ on,” he spat, “but we ain’t got feck-all time left, and I know a pile o’ shite that’s long since stopped steamin’ when I hear it! If you’re wantin’ the Sluagh and me boys to kiss and play patty-cake, ya can just put the lid on it 'til we’ve dealt with the son of a whore what sent the ladies in white to blow the hell outa that alley!”

The "ladies in white" are the Evil Celtic Wizards, btw, because nothing's more insulting than to be compared to women.

Andy floats a supernatural explanation for DAYDverse on his tumblr

(Anonymous) 2015-04-17 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
... along with a head-nod to mental illness for plausible deniability. This was posted on March 6, 2013, long after he started "getting treatment". Comes complete with references to the magical "info dump" people have talked about him referencing for years.

http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=348248#cmt348248

http://andythanfiction.tumblr.com/post/44702974164/you-and-your-universe-amaze-me-sometimes-where

>You and your universe amaze me sometimes. Where does it all /come/ from?

Something on the exact razor’s edge between balls-out mental illness and supernatural inspiration. I literally just kind of KNEW all of a sudden, like I’d received a massive download from the Matrix, and it’s only been a matter of getting it all out on paper since.


Huh. Funny, Andy's timeline of his recovery was as follows:

http://andythanfiction.tumblr.com/post/80662960572/i-know-youve-told-us-about-parts-of-your-past-and

In 2012, I was diagnosed and began treatment. This is all the important.

In 2012, I stopped watching for government vans and making escape plans. This is beautiful.

In 2012, I stopped thinking there was something wrong with my body that was killing me, a brain tumor, heart defect, or magical curse. This is freedom.

In 2012, I stopped thinking I had to subordinate any and all plans and dreams to the demands of my special powers. This is hope.

In 2012, I stopped thinking that I alone had secret knowledge of what everyone else really meant and thought and how it all worked. This is humility.

In 2012, I started believing I was alone in my own head. This is peace.


By this point, Andy claims that he realized he didn't have any powers to speak of. So why answer this ask with, "I'm not sure if it's mental illness... or I have supernatural powers and received a huge info dump from the universe"?

on Secret Keepers

(Anonymous) 2015-04-18 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
Just had a thought, in light of Carlanime disclosing all these emails...

Andy makes a point of having his followers know each others secrets.

This doesn't just serve to bind them to each other -it also means they have to at the very least redact and censor their own testimony once they're out, lest they betray the trust of *other victims*

Not that I know about other victims pain in this, but it's true. examples: carlanime redacting daydian names, Jenn not being able to speak about things that involve WAG...

Re: on Secret Keepers

It must be very difficult.

I've always admired your integrity in that area, KQ. I can remember Andy trying to feign something like it, saying he couldn't disclose his past for fear of hurting his victims.

Of course, he later changed his story to, "I did it because I didn't want to be outed."

Comment at Peg Kerr's Blog

(Anonymous) 2015-04-18 09:58 am (UTC)(link)
http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=362072#cmt362072

Does anyone else think there is something off about this comment? I've suspected for a long time it could have been posted by Andy himself. The comment itself sounds arch, and it describes Andy as "preternaturally intelligent and talented, admirably so" and as having "considerable creativity and skill". Which very much sounds like Andy describing himself.

Thoughts?

Re: Comment at Peg Kerr's Blog

(Anonymous) 2015-04-18 11:49 am (UTC)(link)
It also repeats Andy's claims about his upbringing (" a bad case of over parenting" and "seemed sheltered by religious parents") even while admitting the social isolation angle was "played up."

Not conclusive, but a little suggestive.

Andy knows Captain America better than you

(Anonymous) 2015-04-18 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=375896#cmt375896

I was looking up some dates on Thatfucker's tumblr and was surprised to see that he's made MCU-related posts as early as October 2012. I was less surprised to see that he apparently tried to make himself the authority on Captain America. Even less surprised to see that he tried to make people to contact him to get information about what kind of person Steve Rogers really is.

I just spoke to my grandfather’s bingo buddy, Retired Army Lieutenant R. L. from the previous quote about Steve’s sexuality.

But for Steve, he’s a good guy. It’s an after marriage thing, and he’s got a war on. So yeah, he’s got less understanding of sex than a five year old who’s seen a Britney Spears video, and that doesn’t mean he’s not into girls. It doesn’t mean anything except that someone’s gonna have to sit him down and soon and I hope it’s not Stark, ‘cause he’d give that poor kid too much shit he don’t deserve. And oh yeah he’s a kid. They got…the actor they got…he’s too old. He’d be eighteen, nineteen, maybe twenty. That’s how it was. We were kids. And he’s a kid, how he talks, how he thinks. He’s good at it in the eyes, though. He’s got the eyes. I knew kids with those eyes.”

I swore to take some stuff to the grave, and I didn’t mean most of the way.”

How the hell does Andy not realize this whole steaming pile of bullshit (excuse me, whole steamin' pile) sounds exactly like him? Because the Britney Spears and cheesy death-before-dishonor lines are such fucking Andy-isms. This reads exactly like something out of the DAYDverse.

Andy literally says rapists deserve our sympathy

Not a fair trial or human rights or the bare minimum of human respect, but our sympathy.

Wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that Andy is a self-admitted rapist?

Easy: considering what he's been posting, do you think he'd say the same thing about, for example, white cops who harrass Black kids? Or homophobes/transphobes who beat up LGBT+ people?

... If I could properly hide my IP, I think I'd send him an Anon Ask on that matter, just to watch him turn himself into a pretzel once again.

RPing in SPN?

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 12:47 am (UTC)(link)
Somenonnie posted this in the pit: http://andythanfiction.tumblr.com/post/45958875394/sorry-if-this-has-been-asked-before-but-who-out-of

Andy's tumblr theme doesn't show specific posting dates, so it only says "2 years ago." If that places the post in 2013, though, then he should have been in recovery - I thought once he was in recovery he stated that he no longer did any role playing? But here he posts "I find Castiel to be a nearly orgasmic mental exercise which is why I enjoy RPing him ..."

Do any archiving nonnies have insight on this? I am still very iffy on whether or not he was channeling in SPN fandom or if it was another red herring, but if he admits to RPing then behind-the-scenes channeling seems more likely in my opinion.

The rumors I heard at the time spoke of Megan (the young woman who lives with him and his parents), and her brother who committed suicide several years ago.

Has anyone else heard another explanation?

As a person of Irish Heritage, Andy Dúnaigí 'ur mbéala

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I find that use of the idea that Irish have no filters to be a little offensive.

http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=399704#cmt399704

Seamus is Irish. There is no filter between his brain and his mouth.

That is how he thinks of the Irish. Ponder than for a moment. What is he telling us about himself in that considering his forays into that field?

Not to mention the "I write manly men from a guy's POV therefore I know more than the women writing guys so deal with it."

Which is f'd up on so many levels. One can write outside one experiences. It is called imagination and I can think of about 20 women authors who write better guys than him.

Re: As a person of Irish Heritage, Andy Dúnaigí 'ur mbéala

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 12:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry Irish anon. Andy won't be able to read your thread title on account of being raised in isolation by his ex-IRA grandfather, who was illiterate. So although Andy's first language was "Gaelic", he can't read it worth shit. He was too busy being raised as a soldier to head back to Ireland to settle his grandpa's scores.

Andy claims HP actors have read his fics/wrote him claiming "dibs" for the film

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 12:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh boy, do I have a present for ya'll. Brace for cringe, or laughter, or both.

This was posted in March of 2013. Keep that in mind re: Andy's claims that he's changed his ways/is no longer delusional:

http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=402008#cmt402008

So apparently the actors for Neville and Seamus have read Andy's fics DAYD (514 pages) and Sluagh (442 pages), one of them thought DAYD should be the model for the seventh Harry Potter movie, and the other sent Andy a personal note claiming dibs on the role of Seamus if Sluagh is ever made into a film.

Yeah.

What I want to know is why the fuck Andy wasn't crowing about this from the rooftops. For years he never shut up about DAYD. How does the "fact" that the actors for his two lead characters not only read that garbage, but praised it and wrote him about it personally only get mentioned in passing on one day on his tumblr?

Just when you think Andy's lies can't get any more brazen, he manages to dig that hole a little deeper.

Re: Andy claims HP actors have read his fics/wrote him claiming "dibs" for the film

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 12:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I'm going to need this one to be thoroughly debunked, purely for the schadenfraude.

This is the first time EVER that I'm hearing of these claims, and they've got to be among the most brazen of Andy's lies. This is golden.

How would you go about proving lies like these, anyway? It isn't like someone can just wander on up and ask the actors straight out.

Also, I'm assuming that if there's even a seedling of truth to these lies it's that someone gave a print-out of his fics to the actors. And that that someone was Andy. Or at least some poor soul he'd pressured into doing it for him.

(frozen comment) ADHD is now ADD, "a form of schizophrenia" is now paranoid schizophrenia, +PTSD, -dyscalcula

http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=403288#cmt403288

I think it's far from settled exactly what problem/personality disorder Andy suffers from. Frankly, the way he can stay awake for long, extended period of time pouring himself into fandom stuff only to crash later reminds me of bipolar disorder, and his need for attention reminds me more of HPD than NPD.

Who knows, though, both are just theories. The thing is, I don't think we should act as though it's a settled fact that he has NPD.

You're right -- I shouldn't comment as though it's a fact, and I'm no doctor. What Andy suffers from may never be known; the only thing I feel fairly certain of is that it's not what he claims.

I-phone Screen Caps?

Somewhere around the Agentsex interview period of time, I vaguely recall an incident where Andy posted some text messages that someone on tumblr made a good case for being faked.

Does anynonnie recall this and have links? It might be something handy to have around in the pit.

Andy claims he was sent crime scene photos of Brittany's body

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
http://tf-talk.dreamwidth.org/600.html?thread=418904#cmt418904

Yeah, I'm going to file this under "probably didn't happen." And if it didn't, this is one of the most vile lies Andy has told yet, because it's a textbook case of him using Brittany's death for sympathy.

What are the laws in the US about this sort of thing re: freedom of information? If I call up the Fairfax Police Department, will they tell me if they have a report filed about this by Andrew Blake (or anyone)? Or if they've ever had a leak of those crime scene photos and/or whether they've actually released them to somebody?

Re: Andy claims he was sent crime scene photos of Brittany's body

(Anonymous) 2015-04-19 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know if they'd release photos of the bodies, but if they don't do that, the Fairfax PD might be very interested to hear someone's claiming they have someone leaking photos of murder victims.
