My problem is I always overthink things. Let me put things in perspective for you all. When I was younger I loved Pokemon, did I wish it were real. I wished the same thing as I grew to love Harry Potter (I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter) and everything else leading to ATLA/LOK.
Well, if bending was something real, you've got to understand that, one, you wouldn't be choosing your element, and two, you MIGHT not even be a bender!
But I don't want to make this too long, I love the show and I'm going to answer the topic ^^ Although I'm built to be an earth bender, I would totally want to be an air bender, and live the remainder 40 years of my life never touching the ground
if bending was real THAT WOULD BE AWESOME but the world we would live in would be quite chaotic because almost everyone could bend and steal and harm people
but if it was it would be cool
I would have earth be my first choice because its very beneficial to everyday life. so is water, maybe even more so. I would pick the more fun and beneficial.
First, I would so be a fire bender but I can choose avatar so that too. But think about it. Legend Of Kora is basically the same thing. There is a statue of Aang right in the middle of the water! Metal bending would be cool. What if you don't know how to control it? That would be bad!!
it is real. and heres some tips on how to! for Earthbending, pick up a rock and throw it. now that you mastered that, for Firebending you can get a lighter (if you can use one safely ) and use it. Airbending is easiest. just breathe out. last but not least, for Waterbending, turn on the faucet. you are now a full-fledged Avatar, with mastery over all the elements! :)
