((This part always Brokoro’d my kokoro.
Because Pitch realised that snapping the crook would actually physically hurt Jack enough to make him SCREAM and subsequently revels in his pain, KICKS HIM WHILE HE’S DOWN by slamming him into a wall and traps him down a (Currently) inescapable crevice, and then, to frigging add insult to injury, drops the broken remains of his only possession for the last three hundred years down there with him. Jack is just a powerless as a regular child in that moment and his fear and misery must be absolutely DIVINE to Pitch.
Let me drive this home: Pitch ENJOYED dropping an injured, defenceless boy down a gorge to probably DIE ALONE (Since he probably presumes Baby Tooth is dead) because he was BITTER, and then tormented Jack with a symbol of his lost power. Nice, Pitch, NICE…
I might just be a little melodramatic, but that’s what he did.
If Pitch was smart, he would have left it top side, but luckily he enjoyed hurting Jack too much to let a stupid little thing like logic stop his own twisted sense of fun.))
WAI?! wai would you do that to me?
what a lot of people don’t understand about Pitch, yes he’s horrible, and everyone keeps blaming his past, saying that he did what he did for a good reason,
BUT YOU PEOPLE KEEP FORGETTING HE’S ENJOYING IT.
HE’S NOT JUST DOING THIS FOR REVENEGE, HE’S ENJOYING HURTING PEOPLE, HE ENJOYED KILLING SANDY, HURTING JACK, NEARLY KILLING THE GUARDIANS
HE LIKED IT!
Oh gods are people finally paying attention to that? Is it FINALLY getting noticed that Pitch doesn’t JUST want to be believed in, that there is a darker sense behind it? I can praise everything that is good in this world.
Sometimes, with this scene, I like to entertain the thought of Pitch going back there, ONLY to wait till Jack has become completely weakened and put up the offer once again.
Because just look at how he tried to convince him before.
BY ATTEMPTING TO WEAKEN JACK MENTALLY. He tried to break this kid in order to get him to join him. He ran him around his lair, taunting him, berating him, taking the ONE GOOD THING Jack had in 300 years and tearing it from under his feat and placing all of his fears out in front of him.
So he could have a powerful ally.
Let’s face it. Yes, Pitch didn’t want to be alone any longer, but also, he would have NEVER considered trying to get Jack on his side lest he saw just how powerful he was. Jack only mattered in that instance where he threw out the frost lightning that completely threw Pitch out of the sky. THEN and only then was he interested.
But then again, he might not have gone back for him since he believed breaking Jack’s staff rendered him useless.
