"So the, uh, the spell itself is sort of a, um, trigger charm. I've been working with ancient runes, but of, um, arithmancy, and the goal is, uh, when it's done, you'd be able to set up a series of spells, any series, with specific runes, and then, um, use the trigger to activate them. So, like, cast each of your housekeeping spells into the objects with the runes on them, and then just cast the trigger whenever you want. So, you only have to cast the series of spells once, and then just cast the trigger to start the whole sequence! And it wouldn't have to be just for, um, household spells. It could be any spells they you use regularly." He had gotten more animated as he spoke, then blushed and stuck his hands in his pocket. "But, um, I don't have any of my research here so I'll, uh, I'll have to, um start from scratch. If I, if I work on it again. It's doesn't seem exactly, uh, essential."
He took a closer look, noticing the charred spot and nodding.
"I could, um, help? If you like? Not that I, um, have any alchemical skill but, uh, always good to have someone close by when you're experimenting, right?"
