Lot of folk here don't seem to know that most witchin' ain't about usin' magic. It's just lookin' after folk. Lot of what I do's just mixin' up medicine and makin' sure injuries are kept right. Ain't any reason I can't treat you lot to do that. So I'm offerin'.

If ye want to learn about treatin' burns and animal bites and such, ye can come talk to me in the gardens. Look for the black pointy hat.

[Because some parts of witching are what you'd expect.]
thecoldshoulder: (What? Sure. I guess.)

... Black pointy hat?

[There are actually a number of reasons why this post has drawn the normally-reclusive ice alien to the network, but right now he wants this point of confusion out of the way. It's an aside and he knows it, but he doesn't understand a lot of human tropes!]

You know, there are a number of different questions I could ask right now but I won't waste your time, so I'll get right to the point. You said you could teach people to treat burns..? Is this strictly for human physiology or should it work regardless of... species?

[There's a slight pause to his voice because even though he's quite sure plenty of people in the camp have seen him and thus know there's a giant alien of ice sharing the planet with them, it still feels weird to be so up front about it.]

I suppose so. [A small pause, then:] I would like to... to learn. When are you available? What will you want in return? [Because he's still adjusting to the thought of people helping others out of the goodness of their hearts. He has a hard time believing in stuff like that, given the circumstances of his being and everything he endured after.]
thecoldshoulder: (You're not serious.)

[There's the slight sound of the alien shifting in the background--he's note sure how he feels about being caught out doing something so mundane with what he's assuming is an elderly human, but moreover:] ... My body is... very cold. I do not know if exposing living plant life to it for prolonged periods of time would be a good idea. I would not want to ruin anything important to your craft.

... Yes. Perhaps it would do us some good to... meet in person? I would be willing to assist and aid you in preservation, but I also possess a number of other unique abilities. Maybe you will find some use for them while we are going over your methodology.
thecoldshoulder: (Can I help you?)

Makes sense. So then--shall I visit now, or would another time work best for you? Though I am not one to interrupt if you are in the middle of something, I conversely will not waste your time by making you wait if you want to get on with this.
