My potion would change my physical form into the last person I killed. I would become a perfect copy of them: appearance, strengths, weakness, skills. The draw back being you would never be the same person twice and constantly having to adapt to a new form. This potion would last a significant amount of time, but never the same amount of time when you take it.

Potion of the night

Allows the user to never have to sleep and not feel the bad side effects of insomnia. allowing them to get much more gaming/work done. The Draw back is never being able to love another. Drinking this potion trades off not sleeping for never being able to feel love.

A potion that would always cause the worst possible pun available to pop into my head so I can make everyone cringe at how awesomely bad the punnery is.

Laughter is too easy, it takes real skill to get away with bad puns.

There are no drawbacks to bad punnery. NONE. shock

People might start not hanging around with you, though.

I would make a potion that could make you into any character you desired. This could allow you to fulfill your dreams and fly, or have ultra-strength. The drawback is that after the potion wears off (after 48 hours) your memory will be wiped clean, and you will have no recollection of what you did.

My potion would be to shapeshift into anything you like you would be able to sneak anywhere you want without knowing your true person and if you turn into someone that exists they disapear and you take their lifes ( until you turn back to your normal self ) so noone would expect anything to happan and your voice will change to the exact form you are ( if you were male to change into female you would have a female voice). The flaws would be the longest you can stay in the same form is 4 days if you stay any longer you will stuck as that person you are now forever and no other potion will be able to turn you back to yourself. also when your stuck as that person you dont lose your memory cause the thought of you being stuck as that person would be punishment for staying for that same body for some time.

Flying Panda Potion

My potion would morph me into a cuddly Panda called Graham with Angel wings smile The benefits would be that I would be a Flying Panda and I could fly through people's windows at supper time, eat all their food right off the table and then leave them a surprise in the bathroom. The drawback would be that...actually no there are no drawbacks. Graham ownz your dinners om nom nom!

The Love Potion:

Positives: Able to make the person you love, love you back just as much and start a relationship and eventually a family.

Drawbacks: You would have to be able to support your love and your family you have started, sometimes with a job you might not always like, but you do it for them and yourself. (not necessarily that much of a negative, but takes some harder work if you survived on your own.)

I'd create a potion that would neutralise all the pollutants we dump into the sea and air when it was thrown into the atmosphere.
Posted on 16 April 12 at 14:33
I'd create a potion that would transform you into any game world that you wanted to be in. You could choose whichever character you wanted to be the only drawback is that you could never return home.

Infinity Potion:

Allows for anything the drinker thinks of to come into reality. If you believe you can fly, you can fly. If you believe you were Bill Murray in Ghostbusters, you were indeed Bill f**@!ing Murray in Ghostbusters.

There are no restrictions which make the benefit the drawback. If in a moment of anger you think of someone you know being dead, they're dead. You can work around the drawback but once you figure out how to bring someone back or right a wrong you begin creating your very own Butterfly Effect of sorts.

The Hate Potion

Positives: Makes people dislike, and thus avoid, you. This allows you more free time to play games like The Witcher 2.

Canspeak Potion

The ability to give any animal in your general vicinity the ability to speak. Pros would be, well, animals are talking to you. Oh, the stories they could tell! Cons... an animal is freaking talking to you. Don't let anyone else in the know see this witchcraft.
