Aww, that's so adorable. And the strangest thing was the day after I saw the movie and then watched the new episode of MLP, I more or less pictured this confrontation between Luna and Pitch, who was causing Scootaloo's nightmares, in Scootaloo's second nightmare. "Leave this filly alone, Pitch. You have no power over her!"
Okay, Luna and Pitch are similar because both felt unappreciated, leading them to be evil, both represent nightmares (Nightmare Moon, Pitch can make nightmares) and both tried to destroy the elements that protect people of the world. (Elements of Harmony, the Guardians' elements)
I just wanted to show that just because he's scary, doesn't mean he's always bad. I mean, he's just like Luna. They were never appreciated for what they do so they decided to take over. You know what else? You ever hear that he was attacked by fearlings? It's exactly what happens when someone has been discorded by Discord.
