The Perils of Thanfiction
Hello listeners. The Night Vale Civic Council on Nutrition and Petrochemicals has asked me to remind you of the importance of eating well. Most things eat. Things that do not eat may ignore the rest…
This guy is getting into Welcome to Night Vale and it’s best to stay the fuck away. He’s a bad guy. What kind of bad guy?
The kind that has been lying since for-fucking-ever and has a pattern he follows in every fandom he can get in. The kind that blames all of the abusive, terrible things he’s done on mental illnesses though his diagnoses never remain the same. The kind that has done really terrible things to people (one survivor of his abuse/cult shit describes his shaming of her body and jesus, massive trigger warning for awful body shaming).
Not that it matters to him that he doesn’t ID as anything related to the LGBT community, because he’ll be happy to appropriate our pain and suffering for his cause shamelessly.
There’s much more crap you can find out. This guy is thirty now and is still targeting younger people (you may have seen him posting his number in places telling you to call him if you feel unhappy, which is probably one of the more dangerous things you can do).
You can read more about him here:
ATF links This one is super useful as it has a whole bunch of links to the warning blogs.
The warning that went out to the Teen Wolf fandom that he also tried to weasel in on.
You can also find more info on him in the andythanfiction and thanfiction tags on tumblr. Don’t try “Andy Bake” or “Andrew Blake”, however, as that’s the name of a famous porn director. Fun fact, he picked that name to make it harder to trace him, so that’s not sketch at all.
So stay safe. He’s a bad guy with a terrible record. Don’t let his shitty art copy pasting/painting over fool you.

I probably have more Night Vale fans following me than SPN, so if you haven’t heard of this guy, please watch out.
(oh no not this character again. wasn’t there another kerfuffle about him like really recently, as in the last six months or less? that kind of recent?)
Late last year he was proposing to run a giant Supernatural themed LARP, soliciting money to participate, and that caused a massive flurry of PSAs reminding people that he has a rep for A, failed conventions that lose people their money, and B, using roleplaying to screw with people’s heads and draw them into his cult of personality. That might be what you’re thinking of.
Or maybe you’re thinking of the alarm that went up when he started making overtures to Teen Wolf fans. Orrrr it could’ve been the publication of one of his old “apology” form letters that he’s apparently sent out to everyone who questions him for years now, in which he claims to have a mental illness diagnosis that you will find nowhere else on earth, and which is different from the mental illness diagnosis that he currently says that he has. Or you might have heard that he claimed he’d been underage when he started his romantic and sexual relationship with his most outspoken former victim, with said survivor, Kumquatwriter, decisively refuting that with a bunch of documentation. Or maybe you saw that he recently said he’d answer asks about all his past activities, with predictably self-serving replies to a number of anons who sounded a lot like him. Or maybe you saw the interview he agreed to do recently, also full of spin about how none of his past bad acts are his fault because he was delusional up until two years ago. Or you might have seen posts about his participation last year in GISHWHES, a massive scavenger hunt, during which he blew up and berated his teammates, and later claimed that he had a meltdown because he stopped taking his medication that week— it came up because he plans to participate again this year, even though if he does have the mental illness diagnosis he’s claiming to have, the possibility that he might go off his meds again is dangerous for him and for those around him…
