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 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.

This guy is serious bad news. Reading his background triggers the fuck out of me. Be as wary of him as you would be of Strex.
Hahahaha oh my god Andy Thanfiction is getting into Night Vale?
For those who aren’t familiar with him, the deeper you get into this dude’s background, the weirder it gets. He’s manipulative and abusive, hugely creepy, and somehow doesn’t get that the internet makes it very easy to make sure his shady-ass past follows him everywhere.
He tries to parley BNF-dom off of having written a long-ass Harry Potter fic, Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness. (It sucks.) So you might recognize that.
Like, he tried this “hello internet it me!” shit with the SPN fandom a while ago, apparently clueless that a good chunk of the internet knows him as “Oh my god it’s that guy from Tentmoot”.
Yes. That guy.
There’s some good writeups on that drama floating around fandom_wank, and someone whose name I can’t recall has written about her horrifying experiences with this creep. (The tl;dr to them is that Andy Thanfiction is probably the most emotionally abusive human I have heard of, and his behavior does not stop at the body-shaming mentioned in the OP. Oh God does it ever not.)
Don’t be friends with this dude. He has not changed in the last ten years. He is an enormous creep. Stay far the fuck away. He has tried (half-assedly) to conceal his shady, shady past, but I’m pleased to see that other people who remember his other antics refuse to let that happen.
Oh, and he’s not thirty. He’s more like thirty-six now.
And still creepin on vulnerable teenagers.
Let me show you some links about this motherfucker…
Archived fandomwank wiki article.
2004 Fandom Wank article (please note, this was written before Andy’s trans status was known / before he came out / fucked if I know, so all the pronouns are wrong, but it’s a good writeup).
Tag for this person on Fandom Wank. (Tagged under prior nick of “Victoria Bitter”, but yeah, it’s him.)
Dude is fucked up.
I think he’s born 1983, so he’s thirty turning thirty one.
I left out most of the details (but included links to find this information) to avoid him claiming that this is another fandom witch hunt.
I have the feeling that he decided to take a stab at sneaking into WTNV at this moment because of the recent problems with an undeserved call out. I wanted to point to the massive amount of info rather than write more and risk getting any detail wrong (that is, undocumented) and having that be used as a deflection later on.
