Well Pitch has been a lot of fun to draw as of late so...... who knows? I'm not sure if his baby teeth would help him though. They contain childhood memories and Pitch was already 'papa' when the fearlings took him. His daughter's baby teeth, however... that might work
Good point, hadn't thought of that but still the hug might help. And in all honesty, I think Pitch's past life left an impression on him, even after the Fearlings consumed him because he wanted MiM for himself both because Mim had never had a nightmare and because Pitch wants a Prince of Nightmares (I also think that's why he offered Jack a chance to join him). Even after all this time, Pitch still can't help those Fatherly instincts.
There still is some of his old morality/mortality left in him, yes. He even said so in the book himself. GUH feels. But seriously though, MiM was a baby when Pitch wanted to take him since he had never had a nightmare. He was a freaking baby! No wonder he never had a nightmare pfff. He probably hates to admit it, but deep down he's just lonely.
We know that. I mean, did you see his expression when Jack turned down his offer at a partner ship; he looked like some one who's last chance is walking away. Ugh...I can sympathize and even empathize a bit; but still...he did some pretty crumby things.
For quite a while I wasn't sure if his expression of hurt was genuine, but then I read the screenplay and it was apparently 100% real. Why must you hurt me this way, Dreamworks? Yeah, he may not have the kindest acts on his records, but I suppose that's just his nature. Well now it is. But hey, fear has protected me personally from lots of things.
Same here; in some strange ways, Pitch protects too, sort of making him a Guardian It could only be genuine because Jack's back was turned to him; what's the point of acting hurt, if they can't see it? I know, DREAMWORKS?! WHY?! But here, does anyone have a perfectly white ledger? Yeah...
