Me: Roll over.
GM: The hedgehog rolls over. It’s adorable.
GM: You take a few steps away. The hedgehog remains where it is.
GM: The hedgehog heals you for 5 HP.
Me: Holy shit.

It was all right, he had been set up as the guy who was only superficially confident in himself from very early on, so him having a cool power is fine.
Ofc Bolin is also so freaking stupid at this point that it probably doesn’t even matter, a baby with lavabending would probably be just as useful.
imo Bolin with lavabending was fine, they had a plot thing going with him trying to metalbend but not being able to so it became a “sometimes you aren’t good at something but you are good at other things” sort of story lesson. It could even make sense from a bender genetics pov since his brother is a firebender so he must have it in his blood.
Mako suddenly lightningbending was the garbage part. Just….why?
rando poppin in just to say Mako has actually been lightning bending since book 1, I believe. He did some work someplace where he was wearing a welding helmet and lightning bending, iirc.
*rando pops out*
I think this shows how much I’ve paid attention to Mako because apparently he learned it from the Triple Threat Triad guy in book 1. I guess this brings up the question why he has used it so little to the point that I would have forgotten he even knew how.
I did remember the power plant thing, so my reaction wasn’t “where the hell did that come from” so much as “right! cool!…why didn’t he use this before…or throughout season 2 when the villains were waterbenders?”
(110% with makani about Bolin…they should have written him out ages ago)
