All parts of "Choices":


[[Girl in bubble, floating in outer space next to her clone]]
Clone: I shouldn't do this, but I pulled you out for a moment to give you a hint.
Girl: A hint?
Clone: Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what :they're doing. Do things without always knowing how they'll turn out.
Girl: Why tell me this?
Clone: You're curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you're waiting to think of a plan.

Girl: Well, I guess I'll see you aroun--Wait a minute; have you brought me here before?
Clone: I... maybe. once.
Girl: For another hint?
Clone: Er. Actually we just made out.
Girl: We wh--
Clone: Bye!

Has the theme of making out with yourself popped up again? (No examples come to mind, but there's more than 2,000 of them, so I might have missed some.) And if there are more examples, are there enough to turn them into a category page? GreatWyrmGold (talk) 05:08, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
