I would choose fire. First, I'm a Sagattraius(sp?) and that is my element. My personality reflects that . Second, you can do a lot with fire, more than just burning things. It would be useful for mesmerizing people. Haven't you ever seen someone just stare blankly into a fire? It's also good for warmth, signaling, entertaining (now watch as ffgirl23 swallows this sword of fire!), and oh yeah, burning things.
