We as alchemists must be careful that we are not being selfish with our energy. This is the reason a partner may want or need to vampire off of the other as if you are sharing bodies and decide just because you can control your energy more not to give fully. This can quickly turn the alchemist into a vampire. Even the alchemist can get caught by their own demons, so watch yourself diligently. If you decide to share anything with another, make sure you are agreeing on what you are sharing because what they may want to have of yours, may not be what you wish to give. And from the door the alchemist should be open with what he or she wishes to gain from the relationship, no matter what relationship it may be. The alchemist must be careful that they are not the cause of the suffering for another by promising something in the end, but addressing alchemist's needs immediately because of the other being so much lower in skill. For instance, I know a being wants something I have and I am willing to share what they have, but I am not willing to give them what they want, yet I still take from them what they wish to give.
Now in the laws of skill we could say it is of no matter whether we share knowledge or energy fairly but then I have to ask myself: "what am I being locked out of by not sharing in a way that is beneficial for the both of us?" The alchemist must find something equal in wealth according to the other so that the other does not feel as if they need to thief from the alchemist to balance the exchange. This not only destroys the vampire but upgrades the vampire to an alchemist.
