Off The Rails
History and discussion of my life in a fandom-based cult of personality lead by Andy Blake (andythanfiction). It's a crazy train with no caboose, and you just can't stop looking.

This guy is getting into Welcome to Nightvale 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 shamming of her body and jesus, massive trigger warning for awful body shamming). 

Andy is also transphobic: he states he was assigned female at birth, but identifies as a cis straight man since he’s totally not trans, as us trans men are somehow not as man of a man as he is.

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.

Primer on Andy Blake

The warning that went out to the Teen Wolf fandom that he also tried to weasle 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.

It’s so hard to read some of Diamond’s writing. I still feel guilty sometimes about how much I was a part of hurting her. Even though we’ve talked through so much of it over the years - and some of it took years before we could bring ourselves to speak about it, just between us. Even though she forgave me my part in it.

Hey look, I got hate mail! Been a while since that happened. From Fort Myers, Florida.

Coherence: they have very little.

Oh wait, I mean coherence !! They have little !!!!


Let me tell you a thing:

Sexual Predators do not deserve to be ‘left alone’. They deserve to be called out. They deserve worse than that, but I’ll stick to the calling out for the purpose of this ranting.

Their acts of abuse and predation are not just ‘silly mistakes’ that the…

For real.

And, according to his very own texts that were convenient redacted (but you can see them here) there are at least 9 victims he acknowledges he’s not “on good terms with” and at least two who openly say that he sexually abused them - myself and Diamond.

But he can chaaaaange. THIS time he’s REALLY all better. Because wikipedia.



If you are looking for the most heart-felt zombie short film, I recommend “Cargo”.

It’s about a man’s struggle to save his baby daughter in the middle of all this havoc. What he comes up with is both clever and upsetting. 



If you haven’t seen this, watch it. With a box of tissues.

It is easily the most heartrending zombie film I’ve ever seen, and I watch the shit out of zombies.

Why, after well over a decade of provably and admittedly lying, and repeatedly abusing people, should anyone believe Andy *this* *time*? Particularly when his actual behavior remains completely unchanged?

(The answer isn’t “because second chances” as he’s had second, third, fourth, ad nauseum)

grock anon -- Oops, I dunno what happened! In any case, 2) for the people who are trying to knock the idea of one person being convinced of something "strange" by another person, my mother had me convinced from a young age that I was very, very special. I was very special because I was also here to save her. She told me about past lives and dreams that she had about me saving her, specifically, from my father. This is just one facet, but this IS a thing that happens. This is why I follow this.

Yikes. I’m sorry you went through that!!

Asker Anonymous Asks:
The "Russ" he channelled is presumably Icarus Utterson, a tortured bisexual genius wizard with an eating disorder OC from the sequel to DAYD.

So long as it’s a tortured genius.

Brilliant dissection of Andy’s form letter explanation. Extra props for supporting links!
