"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
