Day 6: Favorite Element
Out of all the elements, I was immediately drawn to water, possibly because its fluidity allows for constant use of the imagination. Whatever drew me to it, I made a smart choice linking myself to it as it quickly became obvious that Water is the strongest of the four elements, based solely on its, frankly, ridiculously endless possibilities. First off, and most basic, Waterbenders can control all three states of matter: ice, water, and steam. That alone makes it remarkably versatile. Then, in book one, you add healing as a skill, making waterbenders invaluable. Then book two introduces plantbending which is just epic. AND THEN BOOK THREE INTRODUCES BLOODBENDING. BLOOD. FUCKING. BENDING. Which is simultaneously the most amazing and most terrifying thing I have ever seen. So, yeah, water. It’s badass.
