I don't think this can actually happen.

He had been earthbending for years, so if he was actually a prodigy, he should be better than this.

As for the "dark" bending, a way I can see using firebending is taking away the heat from someone, like how Ozai redirect the heat of the volcano. Though that wouldn't be very practical, except for defeating someone without causing damages to them.

Isn't lightning already the "dark" side of fire bending?

Oh don'tn get me wrong, I agree that, even if such a power existed, the odds of Bolin having it would be pretty remote. I was spinballing, goggy asked if there could be any more refined forms of earthbending, and bone bending was the best I could come up with. I then simply speculated on how interesting it could be if Bolin did find out he had it.

Who says "dark" bending only has to take one form. The mindbending we saw was also pretty dark in its appication. As I said above a bloodbender could probably stop someone bleeding out, but he could also probably cause every last drop of you blood to burst out of your veins, or all the moisture in your body to go into your lungs and literally drown you on dry land. Thanks to the Noatak training montage, we have already seen that somehow, a skilled bloodbender can cause animals (and presumaby people) to defy gravity and levitate. Seeing that, I would not put much of ANYTHING in the realm of "impossible" That's one of the things about "darkenss"and "evil" by definition, it's forms are numberless.

I was wondering about that heat thing Grief mentioned. Can firebenders control heat directly?

I mean, they can make things hotter by bathing them in fire but that isn't what I mean. And can they actually absorb fire anyway?

In the case of what Roku did (i.e. cooling off the lava) I think it is possible that Roku was mixing bendings (he was an Avatar as well, and hence, had acess to all for) and what we saw was either actually waterbending or firebending using water methods. Whether or not some firebenders can take out heat, pretty much ALL waterbenders must be able to. How else can they create ice at will? The only way I can think of is to be able to take heat out of the water, thus freezing it (you might also be able to do it by pressing the water molecules together until they became a solid, but that sounds like a lot more work and a lot harder to do Plus since water is one of those funny substances that is less dense as a solid than a liquid, without really good skills you just end up re-melting it) . If you know how to do that, and have acess to firebending ability, using the method on lava probably isn't all that hard.
For a regular firebender, controlling pure heat is probably still possible, but more difficult. Certainly it likely requires special training and talent. During the North Pole episodes, when Zuko was lost, he seems just as at risk of freezing to death as Aang was. If heat control was easy enough that nearly all firebenders could do it (or was innate to firebending) one would assume that Zuko would have simply used his abilites to keep his body temperature up. It wouldn't last forever (bending takes energy) but it would have bought him a lot more time. So that is probably not a skill Zuko knows. And since he is one of the best (and most heavily trained) firebenders in the whole kingdom, if he doesn't know how to do it, very few probably do.

He was pretty tired by the looks of things. Although considering Iroh taught him that trick about breathing fire into his hands or something to warm himself up, either the heat thing isn't known, or isn't practical energy efficient wise, or is bloody difficult. As for the ice thing, I'd go for the pressing water molecules thing.

But, they can control lightning somehow, and the only connection I can think of is...Actually, I can't think of Jack for a reason. Got anything there?

Well, it's never been entierly clear exactly how a firebender creates his flame in the first place, or what exactly is burning when they send out out (are they splitting water particles and lighting the resultan hydrogen and oxgen gas, using the dust in the air as combustible fuel? expelling ingnitable vapor?) since they'd need a spark to start the fire regardless, that spark is probably eletrostatically generated (we've seen firebenders make fire from more or less a standstill position, so friction based spontaneous combustion seems less likely) Normal lighting is created by a massive eletrostatic imbalace between two points; strong enough to overcome the dialetric strengh of air (about 3million volts, varying for moisture content). If I was to guess I'd say that a firebender would probably make lightning by holding thier "spark" charge until it got large enough to overcome the barrier, then let it rip and direct it. This would also explain why it's such a hard trick, not only do you have to learn how to hold your charge, but build it up rapidly (Azula had little difficulty throwing bolt after bolt in rapid sucession, in comparison the fastest real lighning bolts can follow each other is about 3 a minute) and direct it which probably is done by heating the air in the path between you and the target thus driving the air molecules to be both more active and farther apart and making a path of least resistance. And you have to do and re-do this again and again in split seconds. It is a trick for a true master. Azula probably finds it a bit easier since she already is very good at projecting super massive levels of heat (or why her flames burn blue)

I'm surprised that it took so long for someone to make that.

Apparently this is the ending page of The Promise part 3

i saved metal cougar lady now she can go on to face the temple guards in Legends Of The Hidden Temple

bdubs, guys, I had a neat ass idea when book 1 of ATLA was still being released

some spirit in the spirit world bestows a certain genetic line of the spiritual capacity for bending two elements in synchronicity

think up the combos, people, what you could get by melding two bending styles together COMPLETELY. none of this one after another shit, people having to by birth use TWO styles.

my favorite is fire/water: booze bender, drunken brawling style moves with the capacity to invoke sickness and drunkenness symptoms at low levels. steam-bending, too, but come on. Whiskey. Fire Water. Eekum Bokum.

why are they made? maybe to hunt corrupt avatars. maybe the same six (each unique combo) from like thousands of years ago, maybe secret family lines, maybe the White Lotus's Ace in the Hole.

talk about neat.

Earth + fire = lava bending.

Also, steam should be water + air, I think. Not water + fire.

And I use this godly game as my citation.

Tou do need to heat the water in order to get it to evaporate quickly, so the relationship between water and fire in that regard makes sense. Well it would make even more sense if it was air + water + fire.

This is what I have been saying for so long; since most things in the world are not purely one element or another, most things should be bendable by more than one dicispline, and truly getting it right may indeed involve mixing multiple bendings. Lava is indeed earth and fire , but since it is flowy and liquid, it is probably best bent with waterbending techiques. Waterbenders can make ice (which, as I said earlier, may actually involve being able to suck "fire" i.e. heat, OUT of water) but once that ice is made, the tecniques of manipulating it should be pretty similar to Earthbending (it's a hard solid, after all). Actually Air+water would probably mean the ability to manipulate snow (water to make the snowflakes, air to control them).

This reminds me of when Iroh I talked about using aspects of the other elements in bending.
