Hmm I've written one but it's only very loosely tied to potions and elixirs. I imagine it wouldn't get much votes because of that.

But honestly, fuck it :P Not like I'm good enough to actually compete in our little soiree anyway. So I'll check it later tonight and it's going up into the big bad world.  ;D

diet coke counts as an elixir, right?
It certainly tastes like one...

This is so randomly off topic but @Jmack saw this on twitter and thought of you!

Probably should be spending more time writing this months entry than procrastinating...

Looks like m3mnoch, somehow. So this is what he is all about. And everybody thinking he was a master genius programmer/tech guy/sentient AI... it was just a smoke curtain!

A review of this book from Amazon. I totally need this book!

Quote
The Black Goat Motorcycle Club is truly an amazing work. It cured all of my Lupus. It has made me rich, popular, and virtually irresistible to women, men, and all of the myriad creatures of the forest. After reading The Black Goat Motorcycle Club I am now able to perform a flawless reverse 360 windmill dunk with my eyes closed regardless of whether there is a basketball or hoop present. I wish that I could say that these were the only benefits that I reaped from my time with the Black Goats but I was also rewarded with hours of thrilling action, horror, and filthy adventure.

In short, you should read this book. If you don't I'm pretty sure that the Black Goat MC will come to your house and eat all of your lunchmeat and make many, many long distance phone calls without even asking you for permission first.

I'd written one for this, it had nothing to do with potions really, and was a bit silly.

Then just as I was about to submit it I had a sudden idea and wrote it out entirely in one go. I just tidied it up a bit and submitted it.

I think its way way better than my original one. If only that could happen more often.  ;D
