You should get together with the person who asked "What type of magic would you be!!!" Seriously.

For one thing, it's virtually the same question, so this is a duplicate thread. For another, neither of you has a decent grasp of the English language. I can only hope that you're better at speaking it than you are at writing it.

I'm going to assume that you meant to ask "If you were to choose an elemental power, which one would you choose?"

Looking over your list, I'm not sure what is considered an elemental power. You list the four that most people would name: Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water, but then you break with tradition by listing Ice and Electricity. I take it, therefore, that you consider Ice and Water to be separate powers. Also, you say "etc.", implying that other choices are possible. Under Feng Shui, the five elements are Metal, Earth, Fire, Water, and Wood (see Moon Phase). So, are metal and wood possible choices? Under the Japanese philosophy called Godai, the elements are Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Void (see: The Familiar of Zero). So, is Void a legitimate choice? How about Light? Would Darkness be considered an absence of light, or a separate element?

I ask these questions because the entire notion of "elements" usually arises from a philosophy or a system of beliefs. The idea of "elemental powers" is virtually meaningless unless you know what philosophy they stem from, and what effects or influences each element is supposed to exert. Even a philosophy from a fictional belief system would likely have a finite number of elements and rules for how they interact with one another. Your question, however, does not seem to adhere to any system of beliefs.

I therefore consider your question not only poorly phrased, but virtually meaningless.

No, I meant my remarks for the person who started the thread. Your response was much easier to understand than the original question was. As for reporting the duplication, I was hoping that the person who started the thread would take care of that him/herself.
