and so I'm thinking if it IS stretching for sun--it's doing weird stuff. WHAT IS THIS???? It has lots of what look like babies on the end of that phallic looking thing my sempervivum has turned into over the past month.

It is getting ready to bloom. Hurray! Enjoy the show.
Once the rosette blooms it dies, but I see you have other rosettes that are not going to bloom this year.

Technically Sempervivum flowers do stretch for the sun.

Oh! I just transplanted them when the rains stopped -- from a huge pot full of them to the ground [in various places] with amended soil. I have never seen that before so I'm excited that it is blooming and not just too in the shade. Thanks!
