Little Sam speaks about The Big Brainwash of BoE - tent moot crash
|Sep. 16th, 2004 11:04 am Little Sam speaks about The Big Brainwash of BoE|
This info arrived last night, too late for inclusion in Teh Book, but most of it is in there anyway from other sources. 39 comments - Leave a comment
This is a very sensitive matter because it was sent to me by Little Sam, who was a minor living in Abbey and Amy's care during the time the BoE stuff was going on. I'm just going to post the whole thing because she asked that I do so. It is very poignant. Without further ado:
I can understand why you are cautious of me, I did a
lot of crappy things to people who didn't derserve
them. I was a kid and I just wanted to be accepted.
I've learned that the people Abbey and Jordan were are
not the people I want to be accepted by. I can say
truthfully that I am not pulling your leg or
manipulating you in anyway. I've gone through a lot of
growing in the past couple of months- I wouldn't con a
mother with two children for ANYONE. Be it Jordan or
Frodo Baggins. All this experience has made me want to
do is become LESS like Abbey and Amy. The last time I
talked to them was a couple of months ago when I told
them to send me the rest of my stuff, they never have.
Its been about 5 months.
Anyway, another part of the reason I was writing is
because, to get my stuff back, I blackmailed Abbey and
Amy- they have failed to get my stuff back to me.
There is a lot of shit people do not know regaurding
the Hobbit/Channeling thing. I got pulled into the
middle of it, which was the cause of a lot of the
crappy things I did.
Im gonna tell you what they basically told me. You do
not have to put it in the book, but please post it on
the LJ, I want them humiliated. And I know people are
gonna laugh at me but...oh well. Fandom Wank could
like it. Its pretty funny now.
They started pulling me into all of the crazy stuff
around Project Elanor. Jordan convinced my mother to
let me stay with them for the week, she said ok. I
wish she hadnt.
Anyways, it was normal Abbey/Jordan "fun" for the
first couple of days, and then Jordan on Wendsday
night takes me off to the side and tells me he is
secretly Elijah Wood. Amy apparently was a channeler
and had pulled Elijah's spirit into her body. They
said that Amy had killed herself "spiritually" (I have
no idea what that means) and Elijah was stuck there.
I shouldn't have fell for it but I was 15 and gulible
and it seemed so amazing and magical that I fell for
it hard. Abbey, "Elijah", and I became best friends
after that. That's why we went on so many walks: To
talk to "Elijah". So he could be who he really was.
What a load of crap. But they played it out so
well...Abbey not so much, but Amy is brilliant. She's
insane, but brilliant.
There were all sorts of problems and drama with the
Elijah storyline. You know...he was in love with
Dominic apparently. And he was always stressed because
he just "wanted to be himself!" or whatever. Its hard
to remember because it was so long ago.
After a month or so they brought in the chanelling
hobbits, mind warp thing. I have a wonderful piece of
fiction apparently written by Frodo Baggins himself
that I will send over once I get the floppy disk.
Anyways, so how it worked was that not only was Amy a
channeler but so was Elijah. Before Elijah ever went
into Amy's body he was chanelling the spirit of
"Maura" (Frodo) while filming LotR. Or maybe Frodo was
possesing him...I cant quite remember the words that
they used. But the point is, Elijah could also channel
and not only the hobbits, but also elves. Elrond,
Imrodir (A nurse for Abbey, Jordan, and I), and Pan
(My body gaurd nurse person, whom I evented to spice
up the story.).
I added a lot to the story, and I feel like an idiot
for lying like that but it was like an addiction. I
had to keep lying to keep the fantasies going and to
keep Abbey and Jordan happy. I think I did believe it
somehow but I lied and I knew I was lying. It was
strange. And I can only say that I was also to blame
for all of this happening because I lied Turi. And Im
very very very sorry. But I did it because I thought I
would lose all of the magic that Abbey and Jordan were
giving me. Even though I knew in my heart of hearts
that it wasn't true.
Got off track, sorry. Well, the point of all this
chanelling and elves and hobbits was not just so we
could hang out with them aparently. The who point was
that The Valar had chosen for me and Abbey to be very
special people. Abbey was going to be a great director
that would change the point of view for many people.
And I was going to be a social worker or
something...to help abused women I think it was.
Ug, Abbey disgusted me. She was way into the praise of
the Elves. Elrond in perticular whom she often refered
to as "Adda" or "Father" or "Daddy". She would cry and
cry until Jordan would bring that damned elf and then
she would skip off on doing ANYTHING for the events
becuase she was tired, hungry, sore, sad, angry,
having a "panic attack", or simply because she was
lazy. I LOATHED Abbey. And if she's reading this I
hope she knows that I never liked her. Ever. Not for
one second. She was whiney, pompus, rude, and cruel
to me for the first months and then she faked liking
me and I faked liking her. Also, her face resembled a
98-year-old man melting to death in a bathtub full of
boiling shit. Ugly, ugly, ugly.
Sorry- got off track agian. Anyways, we were chosen by
the Valar for our own special purposes, some people
might find it odd that Amy didn't give her self a
"mission". I think that she was too smart for that
though. It would have been too obvious.
The Merry and Pippin part of the story a lot of people
know about. Abbey claimed that Pippin (Raz) was
possesing her to find Merry. Aparently how this
happened was on the night the Ring was destroyed
Pippin was able to get through because of some big
shift in the ghosty world place. So...he picked Abbey.
Because..she was so special. Or something. No, I think
she claimed because they were so alike. Im not too
sure on the Merry part of it because they're stories
seemed to change all of the time. At one point they
mentioned the name of a fanfiction writter...I really
dont remember the name, it started with an A. Another
story that they claimed was that Amy had Merry and
through getting him in her head she started playing
with the chanelling thing.
There was so many little bits and pieces of stories. I
mean, something was ALWAYS going on with the
chaneling. I wonder if the old Bagenders remember when
Jordan said he sprained his ribs? Remember when he was
on the liquid diet and crap? Apparently that was
because an Elf beat the royal crap out of him in front
of Abbey because he didn't follow orders when it came
to protecting Abbey or something like that. They told
me that an Elf bent him until his bones creaked.
Its so hard to put this in order. Im trying to
remember how every detail went but its hard to
remember when little of it made sense. They said that
the Elves could come to Earth but they were invisible.
But they said that you could see them if you
were...um..."altered". Which basically means high. I
remember one night when Abbey was high and she was
freaking out over Gollum. But when no one was looking
besides me and Amy, she would pretend to see Elrond.
Im not the best writter in the world. And I dont know
how to wrap this up or make this in order. I thought I
could write this out but it turns out I cant. So...if
you want to edit this and post it or not post it at
all and just read it, whatever you decide. I just want
to explain that I wasn't molested. The times that I
was in Abbey and Amy's room sleeping or alone we were
discusing Elf/Hobbit stuff. When we went on walks
alone we were talking about The Valar choosing us or
the hardships of being a movie star in a con artist's
body. Ug, we were such assholes.
Were you ever around for the Invisible hobbit jokes?
Or the Elrond eyebrow jokes? Well those actually came
from experiences with the chanelling. Invisible
hobbits from another demension. Get it? Hahaha.
Going further into the molestation thing, Abbey and
Amy would have never tried that. They aren't sick like
that. They aren't pedophiles, and I do think that
Abbey was abused at some point in her life, and maybe
even Amy. They just wouldn't do it. They weren't
interested in my body, they were interested in my
mother's money. If they tried to do anything like
that, I would have been home faster than you can say
"Wenatchee". Plus, if they ever tried anything like
that, I would have know that Amy really wasn't Elijah
and their whole con would have been ruined. They
wouldn't take risks like that.
I think that one of the reasons that Di stayed down
there is because she got pulled into the Cult of the
Elijah. But, when I was involved they said that they
would never tell Di. They're reasons? They said that
Diamond was too Christian to ever believe it. They
also said that she was too STUPID and CLOSE MINDED to
understand the way of the elves. The elves would never
pick her to be part of their club because Di wasn't
bright. So if you're reading this Di, maybe you should
take that into consideration before you completly
trust these guys. I figured them out, and now they are
latching onto you as plan B. They probably didn't go
for you first because your parents weren't as rich as
mine. Sick huh?
Well...I've been writing tid bits in this for about a
month now. Sorry I haven't sent it in yet. I really
dont know how to write it down. I hope this lends a
bit of light to you on why I did some of the stuff I
did. Its no excuse...but I think its safe to say that
I was involved in a cult. We all were, but I would
have given my life for them, and I almost ruined my
life by going down their. I lost friends, a lot of my
relatives wont talk to me, I wont be able to recieve
financial aid, and I gave up all the experiences of
high school for a little girl pretended to be an Elf.
I feel dirty, duped, and humiliated. I almost feel
raped. Its really not fun some nights, and it was
worse when I thought that Di might be invovled, or
that some people might think that I was molested by
So I guess Jeanine, thats about it. If you want to
know anything else or have me clarify I can. Im sorry
that this isnt very clear, I hope you believe me. I'll
try to remember that disk with the writing on it. I've
been busy lately. I just took my GED yesterday. I have
my driver's liscense and a job. So...in between
getting all of that done writting this has been a
OK, all you out there that go on about "Turi's just a giant over-reactor that should let this go and get a life," well? Still think so?
I'm once again GLADDER THAN FUCKING HELL that I didn't just bury my head in the sand and let those two keep doing what they do. They almost destroyed this girl's LIFE, and why?
"They weren't interested in my body, they were interested in my mother's money."
Go back to the early pages of this journal. Those Two told the airlines about how they had a rich donor who suddenly pulled her donation for the airfare, wouldn't they please cover the celebrity airfares? That was Sam's mom. She never made them any promises of money but they PRETENDED she did. And I'm sure they HOPED to con her out of it somehow.
Sam's parents gave Those Two money to pay for her room and board during the 2 months that she stayed with them here in Salem. Those Two didn't bother to inform Sam's folks that I had paid the rent 100%, and they didn't bother to repay me by passing on Sam's share. They just pocketed it (as if that needed to be explained, duh!)
Those Two abused Sam's trust, took advantage of her youth and inexperience to live out their asinine fantasies of somehow being in touch with Real Hobbits or Real Elves or Real Movie Actors. They manipulated and brainwashed her into lying for them. They tried to suck money out of her parents. Sue and Bob and I were concerned that they might be taking advantage of her sexually too, although it was even more twisted than that--they brought her into their bedroom at night in order to further indoctrinate her into their sick little fantasy vortex of Hobbit Channeling (which they did in private so other people in the house wouldn't expose them for the lying liars they are).
GodDAMN, these two are complete, utter, and total HO-BAGS. I know the Fanwankers are all mocking me now and saying I'm some kind of obsessive bint housewife who's well-to-do enough to put $10K in airfares on her credit card, and I've persecuted these poor hapless, homeless, misunderstood girls. Well you know what?
THEY FUCKING DESERVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT, AND MORE.
Man, they never stop getting my hackles up.
Sam (I'd like to call you your real name, but I was never told it) - if you read this, I just wanted to say that I'm proud of you.
This must have been very hard to write and harder to send.
I'm glad you got away from them and are "fixing" your life.
I'm sure there are lots of people out there like me, who want to give you hugs and help and the like.
Anyway, my email address is in my journal if you need someone to talk to.

Didn't know you were the pear, Squee. Yeah, can I say (think I got to hot-headed to mention it above) that I'm proud of you too, Sam--for overcoming the brainwashing, for recognizing and admitting difficult things, for growing and moving on. I know you'll never get conned again!
|Date:||September 16th, 2004 11:55 am (UTC)|| |
Just...I have no words.
Unbelievable. Except that it's true.
WTG, little sam. You recognized it. Now you are moving on with the learning. Good job, honey. Do well.
|Date:||September 16th, 2004 12:36 pm (UTC)|| |
I think you've got more fandomwankers on your side than you know hun.
I'm glad little sam is alright. That had been one thing that worried me from the word go.
|Date:||September 16th, 2004 03:11 pm (UTC)|| |
It's hard to tell. I got a lot of flak thrown at me recently and although most of it was posted anonymously (and could theoretically have all been by a handful of people), they told me repeatedly how I'd convinced them all I was just as crazy as Those Two.
I might be crazy, but in NO WAY like THEY are.

Dang, girl. Sam, you rock. It's hard to crawl up from the abyss. glad you spilled this. You keep doing what you're doing and things will go your way.
Maybe turimel can do an addenda to the book or something.
The whole world needs to know about this. Fandom wank needs to know THIS part.
Amy was Elijah wood.
I wonder who was running around in Elijah's body all the while she was Elijah.
Invisible Elrond. that's just --- just --- invisible!
Heh. The sad thing is, it's more common than you think. When a friend of mine was a teenager her girlfriend had her convinced that she was possessed by the ghost of Nancy and that she was been haunted by Sid Vicious...

*insert variety of nasty words of your choice here*
To Little Sam: If you're reading this, your courage to come forward is awe inspiring. If you have the strength to do that, you've got the strength to do *anything* Don't let the Asshats^2 ruin your self-perception or your life. I hope you did well on your GED and I know you'll pull your life back together. I have faith, and so should you.
To Turi: Nope. Not of the insane.
|Date:||September 16th, 2004 03:40 pm (UTC)|| |
*boggles..holds back vomit of rage*
Move on, L.Sam. You are definitely better than that..and I am glad you finally realize it.
Abbey and Amy, the eptiome of two sick insane people.
sick, sick, sick.
I cannot find the words to say about this. That entire story just blows me away. I just hope someday soon those two scumbags get the hell that they deserve.
|Date:||September 16th, 2004 08:48 pm (UTC)|| |
Obviously there were no depths that they were prepared not to sink to. It is a sickening story Sam, and I'm glad you are out on the other side of it now.
Oh, and KC....My vote goes for Elvis motoring around in Elijah's body all these months. ;-)
o.O Okay, if Tolkien wasn't already rolling around in his grave, this probably just made the grave itself burst into flame!
Dear Amy and Abbey,
Lord of the Rings is fiction. Hobbits and elves do not exist. Middle-Earth also does not exist. Please seek help.
No love for you,
P.S. If Frodo and Sam actually did exist, they'd probably kick your asses for being stupid!
|Date:||September 17th, 2004 08:05 am (UTC)|| |
I got news babes, the only Middle Earth creature that would choose to inhabit your twisted minds is Melkor. Even Sauron's not evil enough to sit in those cesspools for long!
sam (I'd say your real name, but I'm not sure if you want that). I'm so glad to hear that you're doing well. I was only on the fringes of the group (probably because I'm a poor college student!) You were one of the only people there who didn't seem slightly crazy, and like you have a good head on your shoulders. When you stopped writing in your journal, I wanted to know what happened to you, but the only way to get your number would have been to talk to Those Two, and fuck that. So, if you ever need a friend in columbus or portland, I'm totally here.
Traci- aka, girl who secretly freaked out at putting hair of a dead girl on people's feel, but totally didn't say anything. :)
on second thought, no wonder they didn't care that it was some dead girl's hair... cause it was totally Amy's hair!...
Titter-Titter~chuckle~SNORT!!! I am laughing my but off. Abigail is just so freakin insane. They will need to get Omar chacking on that straight jacket.
|Date:||September 17th, 2004 03:42 pm (UTC)|| |
Well! The fuckwittiness of it all continues to astound me.
You should definitely try to see if you can do an addenda or something similar, Turi. Either that or put it on your website. Un-freaking-believable.
|Date:||September 17th, 2004 03:48 pm (UTC)|| |
Well, like I said...
I already had a lot of that from other sources, but I didn't know it was still going on as late as Project Elanor (I thought they quit doing the channeling once they had Sean Astin on board, but apparently they just took it underground, so to speak). But yeah, Amy was channeling the living EJW pretty far back, even created Elijah's own "secret livejournal" back in November 2002 or so.
|Date:||September 17th, 2004 08:24 pm (UTC)|| |
The mind... boggles. Ye Gods, these people earn a special kind of "the smeg?!"
And that's quite a rough lesson into the delusions of the human mind at a young age for Sam. Good grief. Not a nice introduction into adulthood.
