Tell me again, why do I need one of these things?

Tomorrow we are going to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally*.

It will be either awesome or stressed-out hell.

Doubtless, mummyfrog and I will spend a lot of money and spend some mum/daughter time. Doubtless, there will be many shiny things and two incredibly long (3 hour) coach trips. Doubtless I'm writing too many sentences with the word "doubtless" in them.

I can't get the CYOA for Ray Kowalski going (something to do with the fact I have no plot ideas) so I did some of the Fraser CYOA instead (and now I have no plot ideas for that either) but at least that has clear divergent pathways.

You are Benton Fraser and you are very late. It is a 45 minute walk to the Precinct and putting your uniform on takes 10 minutes and 12 seconds exactly. Your uniform is laid out on the back of your chair for speed of dressing reducing the time to 7 minutes and 3 seconds. What now?


Trust me, this is going to be fun. It's also going to be a bit unconventional. If you want it to be or you could just run it and go straight into Ray carrying something messy.

*Alexandra Palace, London. In the wake of The Great Exhibition (Prince Albert's pet project) and its stunning venue, Crystal Palace, masses of "Palaces" sprung up across London. Sadly, Crystal Palace (made out of glass by a garden designer) later burnt down and only lives on as the name of a football team.

In an attempt at Victorian one-up-manship, Alexandra Palace has a palmarium, a small theatre and an ice rink. It was also the location of the bbc's early very-experimental television broadcasts.
  • dS CYOA! I <3 your brain so hard I can't even!
    • If this works, it may not. Be wary.

      Is there still somewhere out there with transcripts (I'm thinking Eclipse and Ray with his pivotal moment)? Also, colour me absent minded, but which Ray met Maggie (also Fraser can't be the only Mountie with family in the Canadian afterlife).

      p.s. I came back from the ally pally thing - not as great as we hoped, mostly because of the coach people and laughable security measures.
