Which element would you bend if you could?

I choose earth; it's strong and steady, very ubiquitous, and very much represents me: stubborn and enduring.

I went with Earth as well. While it might not be the best representation of my personality, it just seems to be far more useful in general than any of the others. And the additional option of metal bending is a great bonus; it's kind of like getting two for one.

I apparently convinced capn that Earthbending was the bestest ever. I don't remember that very well, but it makes sense. If I had to choose a second, it would be Water. I think it would fit me.

Water, hands down. Not only do I think it suits me, but water is also everywhere. I don't know everything about bending capabilities and thus don't know if a bender can be skilled enough to draw water from the air (maybe from rain clouds?), but it is truly difficult to escape this element. Water is enduring and wears down rocks. It always finds a way, maneuvering around obstacles and slipping through the tiniest cracks. It smothers fire, its opposite, and it can be boiling hot or icy cold. In fact, water bending also has the option of ice bending, which could be useful for walking across water or incapacitating enemies.

And honestly, the only circumstance I can think of in which I would need to use my bending skills in the desert is if I were under attack. And even then, I have a source of water to work with. Blood bending, anyone? Taboo my tuckus, if I'm being attacked I will defend myself any way I can.
At least it will be a quick death...

Actually, I can think of a lot of morbid uses for water bending. I'm a terrible, terrible person.

Blood bending can only be done during the full moon. Only a true master would be able to do it at any time.

Also: Wow! This actually got some responses. You make me feel special! <3

Good point. Though I did base my response on the assumption that I would want to become a bending master. ;)

That depends on what my boat is made out of. If, say, I made my boat by bending some earth near some water, I've got complete control over the boat. Also, there's earth beneath the water - on the bottoms of rivers, the oceans, etc. It's surprisingly hard to get away from.

Really, is it any wonder the firebenders started killing everyone? There isn't a whole lot else you can do with fire.

You can do plenty with firebending! Like cooking, keeping people warm, having light at night or in dark areas, and... killing... But the Sun Worshippers said themselves that fire is also a representation life.

But the fire nation started their global conquest because Sozin wanted to spread the glories of the fire nation: industry, advanced black-smithing, and machines.

Air for sure! I think its such a versatile element to bend and you can have so much fun with it too. Though to be honest I am caught between air and water...but I voted air!

I'd pick earth. I really like the steady, defensive type of combat. Earth benders can also create large architectural things without worrying that they'll melt in warm weather.
