hey there strange buddy ya need some help

Normally, there's a pretty high chance Strange may have changed directions and backpedaled away from this particular carnival worker — or maybe not, considering he kind of needs all the help he can get, who knows — but considering Childermass has more or less given up on trying to maintain the gloomy, overdressed, wearing all black in a tropical location aesthetic, a mistake isn't too hard to make. Honestly, who would ever expect Childermass to be wearing an Alolan shirt or anything generally colorful at all?

But he is. That and linen slacks, though he's absolutely grateful he stuck to much more substantial footwear when he came back to a carnival covered in snow. Not that the cold seems to bother him much, even in clothing not at all meant for it. It helps that there's a short, fire-red and black tiger-striped dog busy shoving his face through the snow around them, causing it to melt more often than not.

Anyway, back to Strange walking up and asking about a candle. Good timing, because Childermass was just about to go looking for him! Considering the headache this place was giving him, he already knew from the get go this wasn't the Ringermaster's faerie magic. He turns, giving the other magician a very carefully maintained cool look, since he doubts grabbing Strange and demanding to know what he did isn't going to get them anywhere.

"A candle?" Well, that sure explains a whole lot in a heartbeat. "What in the world did you summon?"
