Meanwhile back in A real world.
There are several worlds universes continuums and dimensions that are (self) regarded as being the prime original source of the all the others.
For sanity and plotting sake I'll presume mine is real.
Anyway in A real world possibly this one a gracious cyborg was offering tea and biscuits to Doctor A who had dropped in on his way home from the office to his own residence further along the road.
"...and I've kept the tea leaves for you to feed the triffids. Are you still having trouble training the delivery people?"
"Well I did get the girls pruned just to be on the safe side but no they all know to leave things by the front door now" replied Dr. A
"So when will Reg be getting back? Do you mind if I watch the evening news here? I'vn't had a chance to finish unpacking the new plasma big screen."
"Oh I'm so looking forward to that!" responded HerInside.
Meanwhile at another REAL world Sassy and Goldie were inside the Cintamani Chapel reading the visitor's book. NO Goldie didnt get stomped by a giant robot it was a near miss though!
"Why are we doing this again if we already know we cant make a wish for three days?" asked Goldie.
"cos if there's not a proper time loop time may branch and guess who will probably have to make the timestreams converge again? "
"oooh that would be you and Jonahexed. You know how I am with physics and there's the whole lack of an opposable thumb thing," answered Goldie.
"ah here's the page with a copy of the wish ... oh Mr. L@$%^# what have you done! But why would that make Teckelstein fade out?" Oh I think we need to phone this and show the page to greater and more twisty minds than ours.
Meanwhile back on Another REAL World Dr. A was turning an interesting shade of pale under his usual public servant pallor as he and HerInside watched the Evening News.
"Another update on the global fan prank trend. Yes all across the world people presumably fans are dressing up as characters and attacking rioting or demonstrating in right or inside of authors home and publishing companies. Live from Ter.. "
Two elderly ladies dressed in dark clothing and holding broomsticks were standing in front of a cowering gibbering author yelling at a mob consisting of dwarves, trolls, vampires and others, including a group of people who seemed to be wearing Roman armor but carrying police batons, and some very academic looking wizards.
"Clearoff you lot and go home. Leave the poor man alone!"
"And over in the USA there's a herd of angry white horses in the front yard of a certain noted fantasy author In Pasadena geeks are running riot shouting Bazinga! and in New York the head office of a certain media ... well there's explosions screaming and a mob in costumes down in the street demanding friends and relatives be re-inserted into ..."
Dr.A changed the channel yet again.
"Live from Cardiff People are claiming to have seen pterodactyls and ghosts and just in we have footage on what has to be a fan prank a woman in Victorian clothing chasing the producers of Dah ....is she really shrieking stop damaging my fresh paintwork...!?"
"Reports from Tokyo. Large balloons resembling Gozdilla and other movie monsters are drifting across the bay and are approaching the shoreline. Well we hope they're balloons?!
Meanwhile reports from the South Pacific of undersea volcanoes forming small isles with unusual speed and other odd activities around the Lord Howe rise and certain deep sea ridges ..."
"A publicity stunt or filming for a new War of the Worlds or H. G. Wells movie seems to have misfired literally with reports of explosions, a forest fire, and a replica of his Time Machine falling from the sky and blocking a major roadway ..."
"Scotland yard is under siege or would be if the several versions of Sherlock Holmes hadn't gotten into a fight in the car park. Meanwhile across people claiming to be fictional detectives pathologists and consultants have showed up for work and taken over offices."
The TV showed a group that seemed to consist of Lord Peter Wimsey, Hercules Poiret, and a small child called Bertie who really should have been in Edinburgh.
Stay tuned for more mayhem and mischief with the Temporal Pests!
