Never in a million years.

...okay, then! Ask Abcde will make its debut appearance in the December MCU, so get writing! Have relationship issues? Abcde knows how to fix 'em! Responsible for a fashion faux pas? Abcde can get you back on the right (t)rack! Get it? Because you store clothing on a rack?

Abcde, Olive's been going through a bit of an emotional crisis.

since when?

You were singing about dying--

NO, NOT AGAIN!! How many times to I have to tell you I wasn't singing about--

ANYway, she wears all black, dyed her hair, writes horrifically morbid songs, and is always rude to Mabel!!


I'm doing this for the family, Olive. Anyway, since I'm a very good sister, and probably Honeybee's most revered and valued Alter Ego, I thought I might help you out!


See, Olive is always in a state of denial. I think she needs some help.


So my question is, as an adolescent psychologist could you help Olive out? As I sport the same title at times, I could, but she doesn't listen to me. I think she likes you more than me.


Thanks so much for your help, Abcde. I know that wasn't really a question, so I do have a question: should I wear a color besides white? My closet's starting to get a little blinding and no one in my family has fashion advice. Oh, and what color should I paint my walls?

Hello, Olive and Giselle. I will attempt to assist both of you with your troubles, however, since I am very busy today (blame Morning. She has a lot of boring stuff going on) I will only be able to get to Giselle's problem today, since it is more bent towards simple advice and not as much psycological assistance.


I think that, if you like the color white, that you should stick with it. However, wearing the same shade all the time can become boring quite easily, and I would suggest adding little bursts of color in your wardrobe. Perhaps one day you will wear a white dress, and layer with a red cardigan (red is always a good way to go.) Or you might add a green scarf or pink sneakers. This one burst of color can bring new life to your clothing choices, and it's not very hard, either!

I don't know much about your room in general, so I don't know precisely what color your walls should be painted. White is always an easy choice, but the aura that I get from you seems to be blindingly white, so perhaps that is not a good choice for you. I would recomend pastel colors, pinks and blues especially, or perhaps a gentle butter yellow.

I hope my advice was helpful, and I'll be getting around to Olive soon.

Trying to get through a question a day...

Hi, Giselle and Olive,

I don't know why Olive is going through this phase, and this thread is not the place for a full-on psychological examination. If, after this answer, you still feel the need for more assistance, feel free to create a new thread where I can look closer at Olive's mental activity and perhaps lead her through some theraputical exercises.

I don't know how serious this is, but my advice is just to let Olive live through this. There are many beautiful songs about death (I mean, I live with a girl who obsessed with Les Mis. Half of the songs are about death.) And if Olive feels that her creativity is most stimulated by writing morbid music, then you should let her.

The wearing of black and other dark clothes, also, is not neccesarily bad. I personally find that I can channel my personality best by wearing red clothing, but if Olive believes that darker clothing is what she feels most comfortable in, that is her choice.

As a child and adolescent psychologist, I know that teenagers often go through stages.

…liike yourr pysch ology phase?… 

Yes. Morning is going through a writing/musical theater stage. I'm going through a psychology phase. Grace is going through an anti-Lydia phase.

…NOTTT fairr… 

It's just part of life and growing up, and no one knows that more than me. Just let her live how she wants. As long as she is not harming herself or others through this form of expression, I think it's fine.

About her conflicts with Mabel... this seems like a seperate issue based on the utter annoyingness of your kitty friend.

…Abcde. Weare nottt being kindd toour clien ttttt… 

That seems like ordinary sibling squabbles, although Mabel herself may require intervention, beyond writing to a correspondent like this. I know that this isn't what you were looking for, Giselle, but I think that allowing Olive to be herself however she wants is the best option. If more disturbing behaiver occurs, I would reccomend seeking further pyschological assistnace, but nothing seems out of order at the moment.


…aaand Liddy!…

I need your help. Really badly. It's kind of like Velvet Serpent's Alter Egos problem, except worse. 

Ok, let's see if I can actually be a human being and not an unciviled gorilla. 

Hello Abcde! I request help. It's very complicated, and somewhat like Velvet Serpent's Alter Ego's problem. So. Galaxy's become...1. Overprotective of her forest. She barely even lets me in. The only person so far who has become on her 'you-can-go-into-my-forest' list is Starlight. HeroesOfOlympus's Alter Ego. One of them. But before she used to let everyone roam in her forest, be free there, relax there, throw parties. But then..she changed. One day, when she came back from the woods, she was looking normal. But when I was crossing into the woods, she ran over with a mad glint in her eyes and started whacking me with a broom. I, luckily, did not get hurt. But. I also did. It was a scar in my heart, and it has never healed. The Woods of Darkness was part of my life. It's been closed off to me. A-and, I've never told anyone about this, b-but I snuck into the forest one night, a-and the light that filled the forest at night was gone. There was no animal but a lonely wolf, howling at the moon. Ever since, I never went into the forest again. 

Please, please help fix this problem. Galaxy was once a kind, caring soul, but now she's a mad, angry, untamable wild beast., let's try this again. Ocean and me need her to actually be a soul. Not a beast. We want the best for her. That's why Ocean never set foot in the forest again. She mostly lives on the beach....and I have to admit, I'm thinking of doing the same. Living in another realm...and leaving behind my past. Please help. I'm begging you. This is super serious! 

And Giselle, if it's possible, please, please help as well. Thank you all so much.  

Burn out. 

And I have my part of the story to say...I have my own problems. Ever since Galaxy became that wild beast...I..I've lost my connection with nature. I'm now only the water. We're all elements that make up the family. I'm water, Burn's fire, Galaxy is the nature side, and Spellcaster is wind. I...we....we have to keep this linked. Or...or else...our..our family...will be d-destroyed. I don't want to see that happen.

I will help with this case! 

I'm Giselle, the most helpful, kind and did I mention helpful of Honeybee's Alter Egos. I'm very generous too. Of course I will help. When this is over, Galaxy will be back to normal. Anyway, my first question is did anything out of the ordinary happen the day that Galaxy stopped letting others into her woods? And if she lets me, I'd like to speak to her. We need to locate the problem and help her come to terms with it. I think that's the only way to help her.
P.S. Floofy says dkbox. Did anything peculiar occur with boxes that day? Floofy is intelligent, after all.

While I appreciate your eagerness to help Nightfall and her Alter Egos with their problematic situation, this thread was meant for other Alter Egos to ask me for their assistance with their problems. If you would like to help Nightfall, I would be greatful if you could create a separate thread for this.

Thank you!

I'm going to assume that since Galaxy has been adopted by HeroesOfOlympus, this is now void. If I am incorrect, please tell me.

Dear Abcde,

I am a great director, but no one truly appreciates my work. Not even my CBer understands the subtle genius that is my magnum opus, The Sugarmill Conspiracy. How can I get other people to give my work the praise it obviously deserves?

Thank you,


P.S. You don't know who I am.

Dear Abcde, 

Everyone at The Everlasting Mansion is having an issue with Sammy's weird AE, Caleb Morse.  He refuses to speak to anyone. He just… Makes weird sounds all the time. 

See what I mean?  

We are all very concerned. 

I'm not even sure the Admins will let this post go through! They can't understand him! 

Sincerely, Sojokeeynis and the problematic kid who we named Caleb. 


I'm sorry, Sammy, but I don't have time to check all the dots and dashes!

Hi, Sojokeeynis and the problematic kid who we named Caleb!

It is easy to see that this is a terrible problem. It is also easy to see that you have already solved it.

Hi, Anonymous,

I'm so sorry that your work has been ignored and pushed away. I, myself, suffer from the same problem. My genius in the field of pyschology has always been underappreciated, and even, at times, laughed at by my siblings. It is a painful experience, and not one that can be healed by time.

You must take action! The minds of so many people are too weak to recognize true talent easily, and so you must push it in their face. Perhaps you might make a thread telling about The Sugarmill Conspiracy, (which, by the way, sounds incredible.) Sometimes other people are blinded to the things that matter most (me, for example) and those of us with strong vision must guide them along.
