On a day much like the Mother's Day celebrated by several countries in our world, Alkie Honeywood Mauvelynn brings a tray to her mother's bed with several gifts she crafted herself. The breakfast and card were easy ^^; .
The flower vase and the potion flask were both hand-crafted by Alkie in a glassblowing shop at the university. It took a lot of patience and several ruined pieces to get Alkie to where she is with the art, but she's competent enough with it now to make several of her own alchemical vessels and scientific analysis equipment as well as simple decorative pieces.
The potion is a unique suspension of several exotic compounds that took about a month to collect through purchasing, trading and, dammit, getting them herself. They are quite sensitive to temperature in different ways, so it tends to swirl hypnotically even from the heat of someone's hand. Among several other positive benefits, the mixture relieves the aching of arthritis which her mom suffers, and can either be imbibed or used as a soothing bath oil.
I managed to have three hours of Aogami's time allocated to me, and during that time I watched some awesome character-building pieces for Alkie come to be! In a discussion with [name]Audelicious[/name], the creator of Alkie, it occurred to me that glassblowing would be a truly fitting hobby for an alchemist. Glass is among a chemist's best friends, and the ability to craft her own stuff would be both a useful utility and a healthy artistic outlet especially when she wants to do something special for her mommy!
