Nightmare:You were too weak to continue utilizing the gift I gave you. You were nothing before you found me, and you will be nothing now that I am gone.
Luna: But - But Tia has promised -
Nightmare:What good did her promises ever do you?! Your name is spoken with fear and loathing, and so shall it ever be. They will never care for the beauty of the nights you create. Ever will it be Celestia's name on their lips and in their hearts.
Luna: You're lying!
Nightmare:On the contrary, I am the only one who has ever told you the truth, Luna, and this is the truth: Celestia will always be the one to taste the very best of what life has to offer, and all you will ever do is choke on its leftovers.
Talon: How does the candle, small and meek, measure up to a vast darkness? The candle represents the love; the darkness, the hate. And you'll find that both are pretty similar, for with the small flame of a single candle, one can kindle a large fire bright enough to ward off the darkness.
: Love is not fire. It cannot be passed from one user’s lit torch to another’s and another’s, until an entire hemisphere is illuminated with a blaze of a million lights. When all carry a flame, no matter how dim or guttering it may be, they soon conclude they are the brightest stars, around which all others must orbit. Infighting follows, and destruction is inevitable. No, Love is venom. If it is poured into many cups, it loses its potency until it becomes so diluted it is merely an irritant. Yet pour those cups back into a single vessel and you will have the power to stop the mightiest dragon’s heart. This why Celestia remains so powerful and unchallenged, and this is why Luna will never amount to anything without me.
Talon: You may think you're unloved... but ponies do love you. The moon that you rise acts as a timepiece, to mark the passage of the months, and to indicate when food is ripe for harvest. Your moon acts as a stabilizer for the planet, keeping its tides, its climate, and its axis constant. Your moon helps to illuminate the lands below, to help bring peace to the towns and cities. If anything, your moon is more beneficial to this planet's life forms than Celestia's sun in my eyes. For, to me, the sun is just a blinding ball of fire, whose purpose it is to burn, to harm. It may have brought this planet into existence, but it does little to help and plenty to harm. However, your moon is calming, rejuvenating, peaceful. Anypony could look at the moon for as long as they wished, and not have to worry about being blinded or burned. Your moon is the reason why a total eclipse of the sun is even possible on this world, and an amazing spectacle when the full moon is in the shadow of the planet and seems to glow red. You may not realize it, but ponies love you and your moon, even if they do not say it directly. In fact, your moon allowed the ponies to flourish, and they owe a great deal to it. Ponies are actually trying to find out more about it, to learn about it. Your moon inspired countless fairy tales, folk legends, and scientific discoveries that may not have been made otherwise. So, when you put it in perspective, Celestia's sun is the lesser light.
Talon: I didn't want to do this, but I have to... *grabs microphone and starts singing*
So lately, been asking, "How can you bring me into awe?" Every time I look up, it's answered with the night that I just saw To see that night sky say "You'll see me again at dusk of day" Then I see your face in the stars and I just can't look away
If I could, then I would, I'd go wherever you will go! Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go!
When I see the North Lights, they remind me fully of your mane And then I see the whole night sky draw you out again! I've been blessed by the one that I see after set of sun Then I realize with all my heart that the night will make us one!
If I could, then I would, I'd go wherever you will go! Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go! Flying with you above the clouds, dancing with you in the rain Watching you raise the moon!
I know now how you cry when you see the ponies shun your sky An Alicorn I just might turn for all time to watch your night!
If I could, then I would, I'd go wherever you will go! Way up high or down low, I'll go wherever you will go! To the moon, past the sun, I'd go wherever you will go! To watch your night, us as one, I'll go wherever you will go!
