A Strange Interlude
"You mind the store, Cheeksie - I've got to try and find a restroom."

Ambush Bug's had a mediocre day of sales so far, somewhat discouragingly. Still, he's met some nice folks, and that's always cheering. Leaving Cheeks in charge of the Ambush Bug booth, he wanders in search of a water-closet. A routine quest for some, but not for the Bug.

"Ah, here we are.." In one of the back hallways of the convention center, he's chosen a door quite at random to represent the object of his journey. He yanks open the door and steps into darkness.

Were any passers-by close enough, they might perceive the loud clatter of an upended mop striking the back of a man's skull, or his flailings as he becomes entangled in a spare tablecloth.

It is a long few moments before a dazed Ambush Bug emerges form the custodian's closet, making his way back towards the convention proper, as if drawn by some indescribable force.

"I.. I remember it all now.. my people.. my domain.."

He bursts into the dealer's hall, monologuing.

"Between the realm of insanity and the impossible.. between Delirium and Dream.. lies.. lays? my dominion. Fandom!"

He outstretches his arms to a bewildered throng. "Hear me, my mortal adherents! It is I, your master - Dweeb of the Endless! I have heard the song in your hearts and I have returned."

"Dude, the costume contest is down the hall," says a perplexed fangirl.

"Quite so. Fear not, young one - if you examine Booth 36 you will find the Wonder Woman lunchbox you seek."

He glides through the room as gracefully as one could expect from a man wearing a mop and a tablecloth. At least the mop enforces a regal posture.

"But I've already got a Wonder Woman lunchbox!"

He smiles slowly. "Not the rare variant edition, you don't."

"Well, no, but who does?"

He touches his own nose. "Booth 36. Trust me."

She stares at the odd green ... person, then goes over to Booth 36.

After all, if she refused to listen to anyone simply based on how they were dressed, she'd never get to talk to anybody during the con.
