Discussion: Fire, Ice, or Water?

Hello RPF, and welcome back to another Tuesday Discussion! For our post this week, in honor of the release of Card Jitsu Fire on CPU, we’ll be taking a gander at the three Card Jitsu elements of fire, ice, and water! So get out your deck of cards, tighten your belts, and click the read more button to continue!

Some of you may not know this, but Card Jitsu is based on Japanese culture and beliefs. Sensei himself even wears a traditional Japanese straw hat, and the haikus in which Sensei speaks are native to Japan. Because of these relations to Japanese culture, I will be using three of the elements described by it as the description for the fire and water elements. Unfortunately, snow is not a labeled Japanese element, so I will try to provide some description associated with snow and ice as a basis.

The first element we will be examining is the fire element. Fire is known to represent animals, creativity, and life itself. The process of fire burning fuel was associated with how your body burns energy and some emotions associated with fire are motivation, intention, desire, passion, and drive.

The second element we will investigate will be water. Water represents fluidity, the ability to move at the slightest movement and conform to a situation. Some emotions that are associated with the water element include flowing, ebbing, and ever-changing.

The third element, snow, will be more difficult to describe. It can be viewed as a combination of wind and water and represents half of the heavens and half of the earth. Snow falls gently and silently, unlike the fast flow of water, and can be seen almost as a slower version of water. As it lands, it conforms to the area it falls in, much as water does. Some emotions that you could associate with snow would be the flow of knowledge itself, gentleness, and purity.

Now that we know the emotional and spiritual associations with each element, I think it’s time we introduce this week’s questions…

Which element do you dislike most?

Which element do you prefer?

Why do you prefer it?

As always, take some time answering. These questions aren’t meant to be easy to speed through, but require some time to think. Don’t forget to post your answers in the comments below.

  1. I dont hate any elements since all of them have some interesting backstories and explanations to them
    Favorite element however for me, i would have to choose fire
    Reason: Its because i feel it describes me better, i tend to get heated very quickly and also i used to be really angry before, so much so that my 1st reaction would be to just punch people in the face.

  2. Yes I remember loving fire my entire life for some reason. Its amazing to watch it grew and the heat itself. My least favorite would be snow, cause i prefer water but i dont really know why xd

  3. 1. I don’t really dislike any of the elements because I think they’re all cool.

    2. Fire is my favorite.

    3. Well, because my name is Bloom (Few people will understand that but eh) but really, jokes aside, I just think fire is the coolest and the most interesting.

  4. I love all of the elements, but out of all three, my least favorite would be ice, because it’s basically solid water. If there was no water, it wouldnt exist, making it dependent. My favorite is water, because it can be so peaceful, yet so dangerous. It’s nice to watch the waves roll over. Underneath all that beauty, it can easily kill someone, so it shouldn’t be underestimated.

  5. 1. I don’t dislike any elements. But in a different point of view (IDK which point), I dislike Snow, sort of, not totally. I can’t actually say why I dislike it.

    2. Fire is my favorite element as well as Card Jitsu battle mode (it’s water for Simon 😛 )

    3. Cuz I always win in the battle (JK).
