REBLOGGING THIS HERE FOR EXTRA COMMENTARY ADDED BELOW. PLEASE READ & CIRCULATE.
See this guy? That’s tumblr user and Supernatural fan andythanfiction.
He could be a totally fine person. But he is also this person. A con-artist, manipulator, fraudster and liar. Past and present pseudonyms include Andy Blake, thanfiction, Victoria Bitter, Amy Player, and Jordan Wood. Read the blog post at that link, and read this: A Letter To The DAYDians: My Life With Andrew Blake Laid Bare.
andythanfiction writes great SPN and Destiel meta but there’s something about his self-righteous tone in posts like this that really pisses me off, considering his past. And his past is not that far in the past. So I decided to post this in the hopes that people at least share the link around. Please read this article and read the links and be aware who’s lecturing you on how to treat actors. And if you want a really interesting read and a history of this guy’s past cons, frauds, manipulations and lies, read this book: When A Fan Hits The Shit, or at least click that link and read the book description. Or click here and read the short version, insofar as this story can be short.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Andy Blake/Jordan Wood/Victoria Bitter has left lives ruined. As recently as 2011 he was present during fatal shootings. Turimel, who wrote the book linked above, shares her thoughts on those shootings here. Do not think of this guy as a victim. Read the accounts of those he has left behind him and understand who he really is. Or at least who he has been until very recently.
Please, Destiel fandom, read andythanfiction’s meta all you like, but know who you’re dealing with. And let other people know. You never know when someone like this will spot their next mark, so I write this post in the hopes that it will be shared and maybe it will save someone from being Victoria Bitter’s next target. Luckily I have had nothing to do with him but I do know vulnerable people and I know the chaos a person like this can cause in lives. So please, if you see this post, share it.
Juuuust in case.
I was part of a group of HP fans that Andy targeted back in 2008. This was early on while he was writing the DayDverse. I can attest to his manipulation and lies. Then he was Irish and running from the IRA and he had his first ‘terminal’ illness and he’d only live for a few months.
Lucky, most of us were tight knit and when warning bells went off, we talked about it and he didn’t get too far in, but still not without some people getting very hurt.
And I add to this warning.
When he arrived in HP fandom he was American, he did voice posts and he got into a ‘relationship’ with one of my flist on LJ where he spoke a lot on the phone with her. He was American for months.
Then he wanted to write a fanfic about Seamus and had some questions about Ireland for my friend from Ireland.
Next thing I know, my Irish friend is emailing me in a panic, telling me he had phoned her and asked her to vouch for him as his place to stay so he could get a visa to come and live in Ireland
She didn’t want him to live with her, she hadn’t invited him to live with her, and she didn’t want him showing up in her town.
I made a post on my LJ saying “You know who you are and you’re not as charming as you think. Leave my friends alone.” and with that he was gone (with a few moments of calling me the C word). He stopped trying to get in with me and my closest LJ friends (who are now very close real life friends).
We kept an eye on him and soon enough he became Irish…using all the research he’d done with my Irish friend. He ripped off a lot of people. He was very clever when it came to getting people’s home addresses and phone numbers. Years later we found out that his bull got some people killed.
Under no circumstances are you to let down your guard & I’m telling you to watch your friends’ backs.
He’s going to keep going until someone knocks him pretty far down. If he’s done all this… if you guys put all the evidence together, there is no way this shit is legal in… pretty much every damn country I can think of.

Tony Comes Home
can you imagine though, jarvis all alone in tony’s malibu house? jarvis who of course doesn’t have any physical form at all, jarvis who at this point occupies just the house and tony’s phone—jarvis, who is dependent on tony for everything, who lives essentially in tony’s pocket, suddenly being completely alone for the first time in his silicon life.
and every ten minutes on the dot for days and days and days he accesses the latest news reports, re-calculating and re-calculating tony’s chances at survival, endlessly running the numbers. and nobody told him to do that. tony’s house was empty and dark and nobody told jarvis to keep an eye on the news but he did. jarvis could have just spun down his hard drives and gone into hibernate mode, but he didn’t.
no, he watched the news. he stood vigil. he waited and he hoped that his calculations were wrong. that one day he would be able to say welcome home, sir once more.
Emotional state: upset about robots.
Well yea, kids get upset when their parent isn’t around.
I HAVE SO MANY JARVIS FEELS RIGHT NOW
