On the Origin of Cadence by SpaceKitty On the Origin of Cadence by SpaceKitty
Dear Princess Celestia, I love "to the moon" jokes.

Just a random gag that's been in my head since learning of the relationship of Cadence to Celestia. It's been a long time since I've drawn something like this (full page completed in pencil).

Cadence isnt really Celestia's niece. She just calls her 'aunt' as a sign of favor or liek respect :3

I think that, in her youth (many thousands of years ago), Celestia married and had foals. Hell, she may have had many husbands over the millennia.  As 'Great (x20) Grandmother is rather unwieldy, she refers to all the descendants of her various children as her nieces and nephews (such as Blueblood). However, I suspect the reason she calls Cadence her niece is because she's an alicorn and she prefers to act as if all the members of the Divine Race are kin.

Sounds like she'll have to start calling Twilight a niece as well.

I thought Cadence was their cousin?

There's apparently some backstory on Cadance in the "Twilight and the Crystal Heart Spell" book - apparently she's adopted by Celestia. :P
