As soon as they could walk, the girls would follow Empress Celestia everywhere as she went on fulfilling her royal duties. Try as she might, nothing could stop them from following her in a manner akin to baby ducklings. They'd hold on to a bit of her tail, and she'd feel them struggling to keep up through little tugs. She'd slow down then, and feel them occasionally bumping into her legs. Once they could talk, they'd call out some of the things they see, and learn of the things they'd never seen before.
She'd go around town, bringing two toddlers along with her as she smiled and waved, proudly introducing the twins and gushing endlessly about them in a typical motherly fashion to anypony that would listen.
"Oh she floated herself right out of my hug the other day! Talk about being embarassed, huh?"
"I looked everywhere! She was on the chandelier the whole time!"
"I thought the entire castle would catch on fire!"
As it turns out, having small foals tag along and enjoying every moment of it made Celestia a better leader in her subjects' eyes. It was strange, as she'd expected to be seen as an unfit parent. Commoners placed the Empress on such a high pedestal, she realized. They wanted nothing more than to see her children, and was willing to shove aside even her most apparent faults.
They were celebrated.
She's not the best parent, but she's trying her best

Yep! She's their aunt
Aaaaand in the current timeline, nope, they're not close to her In fact, even trapped in the moon, her spirit doesn't fail to give them a hard time
I have yet to write down and draw out much of it (oho I have sooo many arcs planned you have no idea) Here are some, to get an idea!
For now it's all mostly focused on a timeline before season 1 takes place. I don't want to jump around timelines, since it might get out of order and too confusing for people to follow. So a time after they've met the Mane6, Luna's return, the many times Equestria plunged into chaos will all have to wait.
Which is why most of the posts I've done of DuskDawnAU features them as babies or children/fillies.
In the future, yes, everything will do a complete 360. They'll get Luna back, she'll attempt to make up for lost time, they'll get along with a growing family and new friends - before some other otherworldly evil rears its ugly head
Awww <3 Happy you like it!
I like to think it's their way of hand holding, kinda like how small kinds tend to hold onto their parents' pants or skirts! Those are always adorable
These floofballs will get to rest on momma's fluffy back too once their little legs are tired
actually, I flubbed a little on her tail coloring, the jade green and turquoise in her tail are the same color by her color chart. I keep forgetting that turquoise blue isn't used by everypony...they use Light cerulean instead.
Light cerulean = wintery fresh
Light turquoise = mint
Very light cobalt blue = wildberry/or grape
Pale heliotrope = strawberry cream
