fire with fire

Throwing around elemental magic --

And I was thinking that actually, the best way to fight fire magic is to use your own fire magic spells on it, to control it.  And the same with all the rest.

Except that some of them are stronger in some spells than others.  And even though it's not the pure classical elements, there can be ways to fight fire with earth or water or air. . . .

hmm. . . .
