Back-Seat Alchemy by The13thBlackCat Back-Seat Alchemy by The13thBlackCat
"Your technique is atrocious. I'm pretty sure I'm going to die again of boredom before you finish that potion."

---

What? You expected me to have a vampire overly fond of alchemy and not have him meet Babette somehow? For the record I had him be an alchemist before Babette made it cool so there.

Specifically, he met Babette at Fadali's wedding, and unsurprisingly the two vampire alchemists hit it off immediately. If Babette wasn't eternally ten, they probably would have hooked up. Alas, it was not meant to be, so they're just friends.

Not that that friendship means Babette doesn't want to murder Basil sometimes...which is to say, pretty much whenever he opens his mouth.

doesn't stop them from having alchemy parties at Basil's place. they stay up late, giggling girlishly while mixing poisons and braiding each others' hair and gossiping about boys they'd like to kill.

I have no idea what that background is doing there. I think it's lost.





I also have no idea wtf Basil's doing behind that alchemy lab because seriously he's like seven feet tall she should be way shorter next to him

Babette: I know what I'm doing!
Basil: I know what you're doing too and it's wrong.

Again, your talent for drawing extremely cute elf guys has me completely entranced... What? I've got nothing better to do, except probably studying for exams... Nah

I can really imagine Babette saying "I've been brewing potions for 800 years! Let me brew in peace."

Lovely drawing! I love who you did Babette's eyes, and the little details like the ingredients on the shelf!
Babette is an awesome character. Kind of like Peter Pan, only sinister. :)

I'm glad you like it, personally I don't think the glow on her eyes turned out quite right... :3

Well, in-game she had no glow at all. This, I think, is a very nice addition on your part.
You are welcome!

Fff, in-game she has a crappy outfit and a pudding face. I consider her in-game self to be more a guideline than a proper example of her. XP

Anyway, everyone knows vampires need glowy-eyes. Why? Because they look cool, why else?

Hahahaha! I remember when I first saw her I was like: :O "They're coming younger every era." But then I saw she was a vampire.

:la: Thank you! I'm glad you like it so much! Hehe, the only reason this exists at all is because I wanted to draw Babette making that face, so I guess it's fitting that it's expressive. =P

That was my backup theory too, but then I thought "wouldn't it be awfully silly if she was too short to easily reach the top of an average alchemy lab?" sooo...

Well see, in the Sanctuary she has her own special lab that they had to saw the bottom half off to better suit her height. lol

:giggle: Yeah, I noticed she doesn't get a lot of attention. Poor unkid. I happen to have a fondness for her, though, and considering I already had a vampire alchemist of my own I made way back in Morrowind, it was only natural that I draw at LEAST one picture of them, right? Or something.

Actually, this entire picture only happened because I wanted to draw Babette making that face. :T Everything else is just decoration: the point is her face.
