the truth about tumblr user firebolting
some of you may be familiar with a tumblr user named firebolting, commonly known as chandler, who was active for many years on tumblr across a multitude of popular fandoms, including but not limited to marvel, inception, doctor who, LOST, harry potter, lord of the rings, and star trek. throughout his years in fandom he became very popular on tumblr, mostly as a graphics maker and general fandom presence.
I hate to be that person who says “Wow, my gut was right” when there was so much manipulation and awfulness involved. But after I sent “Chandler” the first draft of a screenplay (that he said he wanted to give to a friend for notes) and was thereafter blocked and never heard from him again, I pretty much assumed he was bad news. Turns out it was much bigger than I could have imagined.
