OOC:Ahh, but Fiva could've just dissapated the fire then absorbed that. That would've counted as absorbing the fire. Fiva knows how to handle fire without ruining everything.
OOC: Couldn't have, but didn't. You said you just absorbed the fire, meaning you pulled it all right through the shop. So thats several walls gone as you incinerated them (pulled the fire through them remember) and all the armour engulfed in a firestorm. In trying to save the shop you caused more destruction than Chimera!
Except, the fire was only there for a few seconds, a minute at most before Fiva withdrew the flames, not enough to harm metal with merely a Forge fire set with wood. And Metal doesn't melt just like that. And Matoran money is Metal, so...
Ah, but a I pointed out, Fiva drew all the fire together. That would have created a much bigger and much much hotter fire instead of multiple smaller less hot fires, basically a furnace of its own. A forge as big as your whole shop. Which could
melt and warp metal. So thanks for that BioBeast IC: "Your shop is about to fall down round your ears friend. If you can't see that, I think it would be dangerous for you to attempt rebuilding by yourself. Your liable to hurt yourself."
