Ask Professor Uponium: Have you met someone or somepony that studied alchemy?
I know a little alchemy, not much mind you (turning grass to rock, ice cream to pudding, very basic stuff), as most of my studies revolved around mental magic once I returned to the university. The Lamassu was very knowledgeable, having read most of what was in the library. I figured if I couldn’t go in, I would get the information from someone who was there often.
Also, threw a shout out to Pun. I love the blog and am always a big fan of puns and wordplay.
