Yoda boy2

Meep!

I'm going a bit nuts here folks. I've given up the ghost and started making a freaking coat for Yoda. Only problem is I don't understand one of the abbreviations for the patterns.

What the frell does "RS" mean when the pattern says: 1st row: (RS)

It doesn't say in my crochet book! *flail*

By the way, this has somehow gotten [personal profile] ivorygates imagining how Jack O'Neill would bitch over the same thing while being forced to learn to crochet (or knit) after an apocalypse (Cameron being his ever-so-patient tutor). She's even brought up the idea of a ficathon called 'Apocalypse Yarn". I am innocent in this pondering, I swear.*cackle*

eta: tis solved! teh interwebs are awesomesauce!

Writing (Daniel)

Okay, so I was wondering something...

As ivorygates and I were discussing Cameron Mitchell's characterization and the botched up job that TPTB gave it to us - an idea hit me. No, hey... don't run away. Come back here.

What if we had a Re-Write Season 9 and 10 ficathon? Each participant would claim an episode and re-write it the way it should have been. We would still end up with the same results but they'd be done right.

While I'm still thinking through some of the details, I was figuring each story could be at least 5,000 words, not due until September (so everyone will have plenty of time with their schedules), a comm would be created so those participating could post whatever changes they've decided on with characterization/canon/plot so that the person writing the episode following theirs could (if they chose) take them into account when remixing their own episodes...
