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.

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

So Celestia and Luna have OTHER siblings? I thought Lauren Faust said that they didn't.

Random thought here: The planet Venus is named after the goddess of love. Cadance is a goddess of love. Cadance is in charge of Venus, maybe?

How does Celesti have a niece anyway? That would make her Luna's daughter! WTF? Then Luna missed her daughter's whole wedding... But no actually... Cadence is older than Luna isn't she? Or the same age, right? So Celestia is Cadence's mother.... Or do they have another sister? Or is Cadence the princesses' adopted niece? Maybe Celestia is the mother O_O... Uh...
WTF????!!!!?

Twilight is pondering the parentage of Cadance; knowing that she is Celestia's niece and that Celestia only has one sibling (to her knowledge), Twilight postulates that she was begat by Luna. This is incorrect, to Luna's great chagrin. Now at a loss for explanation, Twilight questions Celestia who reveals that she has in fact dispatched as many siblings as there are moons available in their pony galaxy.

Guffaw!

If Princess Celestia is in charge of day...
and Princess Luna is in charge of night...
Does that mean Princess Cadence is in charge of Twilight?
