Its just my element.
Taking Avatar the last air benders logic, if I chose water, during the full moon I cold control other people like puppets, that could be fun.
Or if I followed Misfits logic, I could contorl the water in someones body that they drank and make them choke to death etc (ok the guy in the show used milk. lactokinesis loool)
I can swim pretty much forever, although fishes are fugly as hell and scare me ....
Earth on the other hand, the sh*t Toph Bei Fong (last air BENDER) could do with that element was awesome.
I guess I would go with Earth, its all around us
Definitely water The source to all life!!
Congratulations on graduating to expert level trolling, I would stick around but I'm busy getting gay married in 13 states and performing roadside abortions while passing bills that take away people's guns while i sip superior european wine and cheese i bought with european style socialist money, arrivaderci!
- Boil/freeze blood
- Remove water from the human body
- Redirect fluids to/from a vital organ
- Kill all their animals/livestock (with the above)
- Get rid of all moisture in the air, thus turning a place into a barren wasteland
- Add way too much moisture, thus creating a swamp
- Melt polar ice caps
- Freeze the ocean
The list can go on. My feeling is that if we are talking about Earth (the planet)... there's way more water available to play with than Earth.
Wind because its everywhere and i can slice and dice things, mwuahahahaa
Oh water for sure. I would do things like, say a guy was peeing at a urinal. And I just "bended" the urine to go from his bladder straight to his face! Only to go back to his bladder. Ohhhhh the shenanigans I would do...
Fire- Best power for destruction alone. Since Fire is just oxidization you could possibly control rust. Then you could control the way humans absorb oxygen to the blood. You could make every breathing thing suffocate no matter how hard they breathe. With fire you can ignite the atmosphere, and burn the nitrogen in the air. Yeah... Fire is best.
Just putting some thoughts out there in writing:
If we abide some minor rules of alchemy (i.e. something can't come from nothing or whatever -- outside of fire in this case, I guess):
I would very much worry about people using Earth. Shift too much and it will unknowingly cause an earthquake (which you may be able to stop) or cause the city to fall because of how you shifted things.
You won't screw everyone with Air by redirecting some to somewhere else.
You won't screw everyone with Fire because... well it's not like there are fields of fire that people rely on or whatever.
You won't screw people with Water (unless you go REALLY big scale) by redirecting some to another place.
Frankly, recklessness with this could mean Earth benders would unknowingly kill/screw a lot of people.
Nah, messing with air patterns and jet streams could change the climate for the entire earth.
And actually, when China built their big new dam, the earth shifted slightly on its axis as the water level across the world stabilized. Imagine that. Humans damned up so much water that we managed to change how the earth floats through space. Monumental and worrying.
Air, so I could fly.
What do rogues and noobs have in common?
-They both pick locks
You know I guess it would make sense in the context of magical elemental powers that you could create fire basically out of nothing since the energy to manipulate earth, wind or water is already apparently coming out of nothing. Ah ha so that mystery is solved!
The earth is not a cold dead place
Where does lightning fall?
I've always been a fan of electrokinesis. I think The Last Airbender grouped it under firebending...
I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.
Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!
The element of surprise!
There are no bathrooms, only Zuul.
