    Dancing Flames

    I enjoy watching flames from a candle to a bonfire. I can sit in front of a fireplace and get completely lost in the dancing flames. I find it to be quite beautiful. Campfires are the best, the flames, the warmth, and the smokey essence that permeates my clothes.

    Fire is such a beautiful creature,

    but I wouldn't set it loose on people and things not meant for fire.

    Fire Can Be Both Kind and Destructive

    I like fire, beause, in a way i'm like fire. I can be a small flame that hides in the corner of the room. I can be a gentle campfire, keeping the wolves and shadows away at night. I can be a torch, to brigten your way and help you see in your journey. I can be a raging flame that...

    It's Just Pretty

    I love watching fire, it's just so pretty! I like to make fire to, like with a camp fire and stuff. I've been told that I'm a pyromaniac, but i don't think i am, it's just really pretty the way the falmes blow and the way the colour is, it's just beautiful!

    Fire Good, Pyromaniacs Bad

    I like fire when it is safely contained. There are few things more satisfying than starting a well maintained campfire and keeping it burning nice and hot while cooking your dinner over it. A nice controled blaze on a cold night is a great thing to gather around with a group of...

    I love to just stare into a fire.  It is fascinating how it can consume so much of everything it touches. There was a point when ever there would be a lit candle and paper of some kind near by....it would be set on fire. lol I always liked doing school projects where you...

    I Find It..

    Captivating for some reason, whether it's a camp fire, a candle, or a lighter. I just like looking at it and watching things burn.

    Cool, I'm Not Alone

    wow, I'm glad i found this group, i've been thinking for a long time, too many people portray fire as evil. Whenever i take an online test to find what element i am, the ones for fire are always like "i wanna destroy the world" or "i wanna kill somebody", but...

    Used to Burn

    now i dont burn anymore, i have burn fields, haybarns, exploded rockets, huge fires and more now i dont care about that, i still find it awe-inspiring as it takes flight though, igniting and consuming all around, it takes off at such speed

    Few Years

    I actually lived with a bit of a pyromaniac for a while. After that I couldn't even look at a lit candle without having a minor panic attack because there were a few times I feared the house was going to go up in flames. It's taken about two or three years but I can finally enjoy...

    I Dunno What to Call This :p

    Usually when I'm bored, you should NEVER give me a lighter or matches when I ask for them.  NEVER.  I will find a piece of paper, napkin, grass--something to burn, and something WILL burn.  Smells good, something burning, and it's cool to watch the flames dance.

    No Particular Reason

    I was the one playing with the lighter and candles while they decorated the Christmas Tree. I still love fire and often play in the fireplace with the candles and incense. It's an amazing and powerful element and one that I respect. Oh but I do remember my little brother...

    Fire is so beautiful,

    I love how it flickers in the soft breeze but I can't watch it burn brightly because my grandmother says I'm a pyro because I enjoy watching the flames.

    I like watching fires burning, but I don't burn destructively. We had an old barbeque that was basically just a metal tray about 6 inches deep. We were gonna throw it away but I kept the tray and use it for fires. Most of the time, it's just dried wood from the garden on chilly...

    I Like Fire

    Especially when it's warm and comforting, it makes me feel safe. On a cold winter day  when the power's out, nothing feels better then curling up in front of the fire, letting yourself slip away into a dream like state of mind. I love it.
