The Narcissist´s Conditional Asterisk



Ordinarily, all you would see above, would be the words ‘I love you’. You would always fail to notice the huge asterisk next to those words.

This is the Narcissist’s Conditional Asterisk.

Everything the narcissist says or does has this asterisk next to it. Except you never see it.

If the words or actions of the narcissist appeared on a piece of paper, the Narcissist’s Conditional Asterisk, would always accompany those words on that piece of paper.

You see, if you turned this piece of paper over, you would discover the footnote to the Narcissist’s Conditional Asterisk.

You never knew about the existence of this footnote. This footnote is why you could not understand why the narcissist said what he said and did what he did.

Fortunately for you, you are now being given access to what this footnote states.

If you turned over the piece of paper to find this footnote, this is what it states every single time :-

“The words or actions described overleaf are subject to the following. They can ( and invariably will) be revoked at any time, for any reason (and/or without reason) howsoever I choose and without communication of the revocation to you, although I did communicate them to you (even if I did not) if such maintenance of communication is necessary.

The words and actions mean precisely what I mean and not what you think they mean, but they might mean ‘a’ but if I want them to mean ‘b’ then they will mean ‘b’ (save where they need to mean ‘a’ or ‘c’ or possible ‘a’ and ‘c’ ) and they never mean what you think they mean, but I will not tell you that and of course I do not have to tell you that.

If the words and/or actions refer to a future event, then there is no guarantee or even likelihood that this future event will happen, in fact there is no future event (unless I decide there is a future event) and if you make reference to this future event I am able to deny it without any liability consequence or accountability and you are quite simply deranged and deluded for referring to it. The future event may come to pass if I deem it necessary, but it most likely will not. 

The words and actions are completely true (from my perspective, not yours) as of the moment of issuing them but will disappear into the ether approximately one second thereafter and if I wish to resurrect them I shall do so, but on such terms and conditions as I see fit, without prejudice to my rights and entitlements and with extreme prejudice and (if necessary) malice aforethought with regard to you. You have no rights, I am under no obligation and you have no right of action based on these words and actions (which of course were never said or done, unless I decide they were said or were done), there is no right of appeal and no basis for you relying on these words and actions although I expect you to rely on them in order to ensure your comply with your obligations towards me with regard to the fulfilment of The Prime Aims.

Should you endeavour to make reference to these words and actions in circumstances which do not accord with my need for control and the provision of the Prime Aims, then such words and actions never existed and you are quite simply crazy to ever suggest that they existed. No, this is not gas lighting, you have been reading too much into the situation and picking up terms you do not understand, so you should not worry your pretty little head about such matters and sit down and shut up. NOW.

Any attempt to rely on the words and actions for any purpose which I deem contrary to my interests is an act or treason, sedition and absolute disloyalty on your part and you will be immediately tried, judged and sentenced by me in the High Court of My Rules and subjected to an appropriate response in order to ensure that your sedition is both punished and quashed. Any attempt to relay these words and actions to a third party for the purposes of support or contradiction of my Absolute Rule is a further act of treason, sedition and absolute disloyalty and will be met by a further immediate trial, judgement and sentence by me in the Even Higher Court of My Rules and will result in your punishment and smearing to said third party. I reserve the right to try, judge and sentence the third party on whatever grounds I deem fit in order to maintain control over you, the third party and him over there as well.

You can absolutely rely on what I have said, have done, or will do because I need you to be conned into such reliance, but I immediately withdraw the words and actions (without prejudice to my right to immediately reinstate them and maintain that they were never withdrawn in the first place) whenever it is necessary and appropriate for me to do so. As always you have no recourse against me for such withdrawal (although there was never any actual withdrawal, don’t you remember? You don’t, I told you that you were losing your mind, you need to get some help and see somebody).

The moment the need for control has been established by the saying of the words and/or the doing of the deeds/actions overleaf then the words will no longer be acted on and will melt into nothingness and the deeds/actions will no longer be maintained and will similarly vanish into the ether.

It is neither an excuse or reason with any validity whatsoever to claim that you did not know about this footnote and the terms and conditions contained within. You are irrevocably bound by this footnote and the power of my asterix (whereas I am neither bound at any time) and to claim you did not see it, did not know about it and/or did not understand it, is quite simply pathetic and you should be ashamed of yourself. I don’t even see what I see in you to say the words (which I may or may have not said dependent on the needs of The Twin Lines of the Narcissistic Defence) and/or do the deeds/actions (which I may or may not have done dependent again on The Twin Lines of the Narcissistic Defence).

This footnote represent the entirety of the applicable terms save those which I deem necessary to make-up and add as and when is required to further assert or maintain control over you. Those terms remain equally valid and apply retrospectively to a time at my absolute discretion. There are no waivers, exemptions, statutory safeguards or common-law loopholes that apply to this footnote (save those generate by me and for me).

This footnote is to be interpreted in accordance with English, Mandarin, Swahili and/or Narc and/or any other language including Nonsense, Gibberish, Word Salad and Circularity. 

This footnote is subject to the jurisdiction of no courts other than those of my invention.

    Yes. The conditional I love you.

    So my brother contacted me last night. I’m in full NC with all of my family. Numbers blocked etc.

    So the little shit buys a new SIM. Rings me. What he told me was so shocking that after the call I got up and promptly collapsed in the kitchen. I think I’ve fractured a rib and I hit my head plus bruises. Unfortunately, it didn’t knock any sense into me.

    But yes, he starts off with ‘I love you, I will always love you.. do you not love me?’


    After going round in circles for a bit, he finally spits out the real reason for calling.

    Luckily, I got more out of him than he did from me but that’s why I fainted.

    So no. They cannot even begin to understand the sheer awesomeness of real love and everything it entails. Including its obligations.

      Go get an x-ray!

      1. Renarde says:


        Is it worth the hassle though? Nothing can be done medically anyway.

        1. Violetta says:

          They could tape you, but you might prefer to talk to a Civil War sutler about getting a “working corset.” Wearing one to a ball at the Statehouse made my cramps go away, and I’ve been told that they ease back pressure during pregnancy.

          A properly-fitted corset is nothing like the crap sold at kink shops.

          1. Renarde says:


            You’re talking to the corset queen! I do actually have a properly boned under bust which I’m considering.

            I’ve placed my bra band on the rib and that does help.

            Thankyou for thinking of me.

    2. Mercy says:

      Renarde, what was the real reason he called? You can’t leave us hanging like that. Hope you feel better soon. Hopefully you are just bruised. I’ve heard a fractured rib is extremely painful.

      1. Renarde says:

        Thanks Mercy. I cant really go into it but it involves the Family Court.

        What I will say is that it concerns Facade Management. Bro is a narc and is not daft. He smelt a rat and then attempted a fuel binge, He tried to get the real story out of me.

        Mum is daft enough to believe any story placed in front of her. I think PN knew he was also hearing a false narrative from ex.

        I suspect PN whispered his words in mums ear. Mum then got onto bro. Bro became fact finder. That simple.

        They are all utterly exhausting which is why I’m in NC.

    3. WhoCares says:


      I am sorry your brother got around your no contact. Perhaps a new phone number is prudent?

      Hope you’re on the mend soon. Take care.

      1. Renarde says:


        You are right, it would be prudent but I cabt risk it. Too many bug agencies are involved and I’ve already had two very serious lapses with the Courr and the Solicitors.

        Thank you for your thoughts 💛

    Hi HG ~
    Apropos nothing at all, will you be adding any new audio commentary to YouTube any time soon?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      There will be a new YouTube channel at some point this year.

      1. Violetta says:

        You won’t be taking down the old YT recordings, will you?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          That is under review.

          1. Violetta says:

            I’ve barely made a dent in my listening!

          2. Violetta says:

            But…but ..we sent all this increased traffic your way! I’ve brought countless DM and Yahoo readers over to the Dark Side of the Narc! And in return, you’re going to monetize all that lovely stuff on YT? Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency? What are you, some kind of psychopath?

            Oh, wait.

          3. Renarde says:

            Ha ha!

            I dont blame Sir Chutty. I really dont.

          4. Violetta says:

            Ok, I’m not getting the “Chutty” joke. Tried googling, still unenlightened.

          5. Pati says:

            Instead of Sweety Pie he is Chutty Pie

          6. Violetta says:

            Anything to do with the recommended pronunciation of “Chewdor”?

  3. Pati says:

    Dear Mr. Chutty,

    I would think it would be more of exclamation mark than an asterisk but thats just my opinion.

    1. Renarde says:

      Mr Chutty?

      Jesus, that’s funny. I’m silently laughing in despite of my physical pain.

      And it is an asterisk. Chutty is right.

      1. Pati says:

        Hi Renarde,
        Feel better hun.
        HG deserves a pet name too right ?
        Yes he is always right hee hee.

        1. Renarde says:


          Stop making me laugh! My side hurts!

          It could be only badly bruised. I’ve broken a rib before and it doesn’t feel quite as bad.

          Thankyou for asking 💛

          1. Pati says:

            My dear, you should get that checked out by a doctor
            Dont leave it too long if you are in pain. Take some pain killers.
            Take care of yourself

          2. Renarde says:


            Just taken two ibuprofen. It’s now more a discomfort.


          3. Pati says:

            Try rubbing alcohol, or essential oil (peppermint)
            Pls do not use bengay since it smells so bad, but then again it may keep the Narcs away.

          4. Renarde says:


            I dont have any of these but thank you. Can I use garlic to repel the Narcs?

          5. Pati says:

            Hi Renarde,
            Yes hang garlic by your door, also the evil eye is good for the stare and mosquitoe repellant too
            Good luck 🙂
            Oh and a big holy cross that should hopefully keep them away.

          6. Renarde says:


            I have a gert big evil eye actually! Used garlic before but no can do on cross. Not my bag, baby!

          7. Pati says:

            Hahaha fair enough 😁

          8. Kim e says:

            PATI….How are you woman? Hanging in there? How did your chat with HG go?
            Hope all is well.

          9. Pati says:

            Hi Kim e

            All is well with me I am doing great thank you.

          10. Pati says:

            To be honest he is my addiction just like he is addicted to nicotine. I love him and I cant leave him I know this sounds crazy Kim.

          11. Kim e says:

            Pati. Believe me hon. I get it. Finding it very hard to throw mine to the curb also. No judgement here. Not crazy at all. Addiction is awful.
            You do for you Pati. Just wanted to check on you.
            Take care. Smooches

          12. Pati says:

            Kim, you are so kind sweetheart❤

          13. Renarde says:


            It’s not a broken rib! It is just bruising. No sharply intake on breathing like the other time.

            Lucky is my middle name.

            Thank you again for thinking of me.

          14. Pati says:

            Of course No problem Renarde

          15. Violetta says:

            Garlic is a mild antibiotic AND delicious.

          16. Pati says:

            Yup! Great for cooking, bad for the breath.

          17. Renarde says:


            I love garlic. I was once promised a visit to ‘The Stinking Rose’ in SF. Entire menu = garlic.
