    I have/had the opposite problem/perspective... Jove had some wild af medical stories, but I myself am a medical oddity. Like, I got an experiemental kind of bone marrow transplant in the 90s that was all over the news, got cancer again, and then got a second bone marrow transplant with myself as the donor [using a sample of clean bone marrow that my parents had saved when I went into remission] and it was supposed to be a crazy, desperate Hail Mary that would mmmmaybe, at best, buy me a couple years' time to find a better match, and probably not do anything at all, but instead, it's resulted in me being cancer-free for 23 years. Statistically speaking I'm prrrobably not the only person alive to whom this has happened, but shit, maybe I am! So I guess I'm like hey, if I can be a medical freak, other people can too.

    Forgot to reply to this, the cancer claims came ages after the mutant claims

    Did anyone actually believe them or this more of a nod along because whatever situation because that is clearly a large sold out arena or concert hall, and if their band was big enough to be playing to that size crowd they'd be known name famous.

    I didn't really talk to Jove ever, and i'm not in the discord, so this is all news to me

    (Edit: both her claims about like cancer and having a band, and the fact that it was all BS)

    Re Allyssa Sylph of Heart

    It was very easy to headtilt about it, maybe even say to yourself "hey wait a minute..." but then the next thing was happening and the thing that seemed fishy got buried and there was actually good thoughts in there mixed with the lies.

    Or maybe that's just me with ADHD brain, but yeah.

    Like I remember thinking "wow that's a big crowd. Is her band that big name?" Or "how'd she take the pic if she's supposed to be backstage?" But then I guess I shrugged and moved on?

    personally, i don’t keep up with which musicians are currently popular, so i accepted it with little question.

    What Re said

    It feels like a dick move to openly question someone w/o a solid reason

    And for my part, I'll b honest, I don't pay v close attention to most things. I've got better things to do than cross reference things my friends say.

    ....hell, over the months she pretended to have a band, I only clicked on two song links.

    Here are screenshots of her talking abt her band. I wanna note she had previously talked abt dressing up all sparkly and fancy for a gig, so the description of her fashion was consistent from months prior.

    I wasn't super deep in all of this, since, as I said, I'm not in the Discord, so a lot of this is news to me as well (though not all, I knew about her claims of having cancer, though not much beyond "I have brain cancer," and a fair bit about her "band"--I'd never heard the songs in question before, so I didn't question that it was her--and, of course, I assumed she wrote the horoscopes). But I did consider her a friend so I feel pretty fuckin' betrayed by all of this.

    I would've quite possibly been more suspicious had I seen some of the shit mentioned, but...I'm not entirely positive I would've been? It's very, very easy to, for lack of better wording, subconsciously go into denial when it's a friend you're talking about.

    Wow. This is all extremely fucked up and I'm sorry you had to deal with it, cA, and to anyone else that had to as well. The level of lying and trying to keep that lie going on here, treating ya'll like you're stupid is just... absolutely fucking vile.
