It says there's more then one proofreader and editor, but only one is listed. I'm confused.

Apparently, nopony proofread the description!

Hah. Good to see you back!
Actually, I did change it! Right after your comment, I changed it from "editors and/or proofreaders:" to "editor(s) and/or proofreader(s):" to be more accurate. But I just found another mistake, so I'll correct it again.

I'm wondering if Cadance had picked up on the true nature of their bond: that it's actually a linking of their souls as they've found their "special somepony". It's likely this conclusion hasn't been thought of since David's form is that of a non-magical creature stuck in a world full of magic. Whether the manifestation of the psychic thread is a result of his unique "non-magical physiology" or is in part due to the power that brought him to Equus remains to be seen.

One question though: would David be aware of the portal to Canterlot High that Sunset Shimmer escaped through when she left Celestia? I know that many folks here don't think of the Equestria Girls' movies to be canon, but they clearly are since Sunset is mentioned several times in episodes of Seasons 5 & 6, so how does one explain that gap in the storyline in this world?

Or is it that David is clearly not the same type of creature as the "humans" from Canterlot High?

To quote David in Day 4 - The Last Night Alone:
"...the comics and movies might be completely unrelated to the real Equestria. There is no knowledge of humans or a portal to another world..." (EQG and Comics are not canon in DA)

Also, to my knowledge, Sunset Shimmer is never referenced in the TV show in either season 5 or 6. If I'm misremembering, please point out where.
