This short animation tells the tale of what would have been the origin of Nightmare Night, and the catalyst element that forced Celestia to banish Luna.
After defeating Discord, Canterlot was witnessing a very slow recovery. Misery could still be found everywhere around, specially for the ponies that had less means.
Luna thought that expanding the kingdom and founding a new pony colony elsewhere would put a solution to the problem, favoring the ponies that struggled the most.
Celestia declined the proposal of her sister to scatter Equestria. For after such a great lack of harmony she thought it could shatter the kingdom forever.
Being denied and in the shadow of her own sister, Luna decided to carry on with her plan, and ask for forgiveness rather than permission.
