Maybe don’t use fire if you can’t control it
Fire doesn’t need to burn. Fire can be used to heal and cleanse as well. It’s all about your intentions As far as magIck goes.
I have always liked the idea that naming something gives it power.
I feel it does give it noticeable power. it's like a personal enchant for me, especially if it's clever, funny or I can feel the energy of the words.
And back to the fire thing: What I'm saying is, that I feel the fire element is useless for fights as a white arts practitioner, because it can only overheat or burn in a variety of intensities. Well maybe make it so hot, that your opponent can't fight properly anymore. But 1. this is a waste of energy and 2. it is a kind of hurt/unpleasantness inflicted, too.
Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist here, but my goal is not only to win the fight, but a pleasant outcome for me, the opponent and even those who might watch. And in the end, all relax and have a laugh. Or at the least, the aggressor goes home thinking about his life choices in a good way. haha xD
