To control earth/wind/fire/water. No brainer, you know how fun that would be.
edit: I would live on a rock that levitates from a fountain of water that comes up from the sea that has the surface of the water on fire. Wind would just be a nice breeze with the windows open. If your gonna dream...dream big
Mind control. To be able to listen to other people's thoughts or step it up a notch and take control of what they think, what they think they see or hear..so on and so forth... sounds pretty ideal to me.
Why? Always been my answer, never really gave it much thought..but now that i think about my constant preoccupation with what other people are thinking, thinking about me, judging me...would make this the obvious choice. There's also the control factor there as well. Power over others.

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside

#1 -- the ability to heal physical injuries/conditions. Even knowing that mental/psychological illnesses can have as bad an effect, I tend to see them as things that are better off being worked through (aside from chemical imbalances, which I'd call a physical source, really). So yeah, I guess I am the type of person who qualifies the use of fantasy powers
#2 -- Instantaneous transport. Travel anywhere, anytime, and render commuting null and void? Count me in .
And my answer remains the same. The human spirit and its potential/ability to endure hardship and pain, and to heal from and transform those hurts into a healthy, evolved state of being holds so much real life fascination for me. I would love to be able to heal creatures and plant life as well.
This concern with transformation and healing may reflect my heroic archetype, the magician. Among other things
To take away ones emotional scares, if only to help them life happily when they feel as if all is lost.........I truly admire this.
