In the Academy, you learn that a spy's choice comes with great responsibility. When there's only one option available, it's much easier to act. You can work on instinct alone. You don't even need to think.

Usually, that's a good thing. But for Special Agent Sweetie Drops, it's the dilemma.

A nonpony draft of this story appeared in the January 2017 Writeoff.

I'm glad to see this one migrate over from Original-ville! :heart: I liked this back in the Writeoff and the added context in this version is nice.

I enjoyed this one. It's an interesting perspective on how time loops can be really annoying. When your only choices are to end it all or do the same thing, is it really a choice?

Just wondering, have you played Bastion? The end of that game has a lot of similarities, though it's not an exact copy at all.

It's a little obvious that all ponyness was retrofitted on afterwards, but it's done well enough that it doesn't hurt the story so no harm no foul.

Wow, I feel like my definitions of "uncanny" and "hopeless" have just been updated
