I like to imagine that Night Light and Twilight Velvet are oddballs among the Canterlot elite. They're nouveau riche, new money, having met as broke university students, before Velvet's eventual success as the ghostwriter for the Daring Do book series launched them into a whole new tax bracket. They're goofy and eccentric and wonderfully oblivious to the ins and outs of high society, but they're happy as hell and ridiculously proud of their family- which includes a royal guard captain, an actual alicorn empress daughter-in-law, a daughter that used friendship to transcend the shackles of her mortal unicorn body, a dragon grandson, the lord of chaos as a son-in-law, a she-draconequus as a granddaughter, Equestria's first ever naturally-born alicorn, and one overworked heir to the Crystal Empire. They get weird looks on their family outings but who cares! Smile for the camera, everyone!
imagine Twilight being nervous leaving Panny alone with Velvet and Night Light for the first time since she hatched. there's just so much that could go wrong - she's a small bundle of chaos incarnate, her very existence is a mystery, her magic surges could level a city -
and her parents just calmly remind her with a smile that they babysat Flurry Heart when she was a baby, too. Not only was her magic pulled from an entire kingdom, but she could fly as a baby (which Pan thankfully hasn't done yet). Even before that, they handled Twilight's magic surges - powerful enough, as we've seen, to hatch a dormant (headcanon) dragon egg that are already naturally resistant to magic - and Twi was, what? four? Five? They're not new to managing little bundles of chaos.
Omg, there would have to be two.
One where the photographer thankfully got everyone to hold still and smile AT the camera by some miracle.
And then one of the immediate aftermath of all the snipes of relatives fighting amongst eachother like they do at every big family gathering with the grandparents still just blissfully smiling through it all, grateful for the extremely unique family, haha.
We finally get to see your version of Twilight's parents! Nice and caring, a nice change of pace from uunicornmc's versions of them, which only make me want to punch them.
Also it seems Daring Do is a completely fictional character in your version of Equestria, if that line about ghostwriting the books is anything to go off of.
What made you decide to make Velvet the ghostwriter for Daring Do, though I suppose it would make sense considering I have no idea when Daring has the time to write her own books; does that mean she knows Daring Doo?
