Talking meme Day 2: Avatar!

Second day of the talking meme! (And the illness, though I'm now thankfully feeling a lot better). Today killing_kurare asked If you could be a bender, which element would you choose and why?



First of all: what an excellent question!

Second of all: …Hm. Well, I suppose the answer would have to be an airbender!

The thing is, you see, that I’ve always wanted to fly. Ever since I was a little kid, my attitude towards superpowers has been very much along the lines of flying or bust. I love the thought of soaring through the air, and I also love the thought of being able to do cool things with the wind.

So, yeah, airbenders are pretty much right up my alley! And have been since the first time I watched the show. I mean, the rest are cool and all. But AIR STUFF. Waterbenders and firebenders and earthbenders have a lot going for them, but they’re not quite as cool as airbenders who can LITERALLY FLY. I mean, that is pretty awesome.

And I’m pretty fond of their fighting style and culture, too. I mean, their fighting style is just so elegant and effective (and hilarious sometimes, in the case of Aang). And their culture values a lot of things that I value – like peace, and looking after each other, and looking after animals, and having cool flying bison that they can travel around everywhere on.

(Which is another reason to be an airbender: I get an Appa!)

So, yeah, in conclusion: definitely airbenders. Mainly for the thought of flying, but also for getting a cool and extremely fluffy animal companion! <3

Thanks for answering this :D
It was quite interesting to read :) Especially because it seems you didn't even have to think about it xD Fascinating that you would be okay with the lifestyle of the airbenders ... I think I could never live like this :'D
So thanks again for this insight, and I'm happy you had fun answering the question ^-^
