Long ago, Luna and Celestia were both the rulers of Equestria. Every morning, Celestia would raise the sun, and every evening, Luna would raise the moon. Together, they kept the balance perfectly. One day, however, Luna grew jealous: the ponies would be awake to enjoy the day, but sleep through the night. In anger, Luna refused to lower the moon, thus bringing eternal night. Celestia tried to reason with Luna, but the bitterness in her heart transformed her into Nightmare Moon. In devestation and to protect Equestria, Celestia used the Elements of Harmony to banish her to the moon, and it's said that in a thousand years, on the longest day of that year, Nightmare Moon will make her return.

(I apologise if the occasional clipping of audio bugs you. I have no idea why it's doing that.)


Thanks EQD! :D
