In our Dungeons & Dragons group, a couple of us can fly.
Florian can fly because he has fairy wings.
My character can fly because she made an ill-advised impulse purchase at a dodgy market, and acquired a magic carpet.
(Even my fictional characters have adhd it appears)
This is obviously super-fun, and led to a nifty little manoeuver in which Flo and I splattered a lot of flying baddies into a rock wall through a combination of fast flight and a Dimension Door.
But breathing underwater is also useful.
So, my prompt for you today is—if you had to choose, would it be flying or breathing underwater?
Set a timer for 5 minutes and write about why.
