I'm enamored of fantasy. I'm torn between historical fantasies and modern, urban fantasies. I have, however, a strong pull to the magic. Fred dumped me some fantasy images (including an interesting look at the Fates) and I'm sorting through some of those.

Hmm. I never did anything with that "Don Quixote meets War For the Oaks" idea. Perhaps that would be a place to start. The basic idea was Our Hero meeting a flamboyant street performer. Said performer lives as though they are in an urban fantasy. But is he? The bits of scenes in my head go on for quite a while without coming down on one side or another. Is all this magic that the performer sees really magic? Is he schizophrenic in a highly functional and non-dangerous way? Is there a little of both?

Hmm. Fates as Dinkytown shop owners. A clothier, an architect. A government worker? A funeral home?

More Googling!

I had this dream once, in which was a scene taking place in an urban alley during the wee hours. I was standing in front of an automobile. The lighting was much like in a 1940s gangster film. For whatever reason I was somewhat afraid in the dream and then out of nowhere appeared this male street performer dressed similar to a flambouyant gypsy or possibly an arab, in Alladin days. He had long blonde hair like Orlando Bloom in LOTR. And he threw this glittery, magic dust toward my face. My state of being in the dream was suddenly shifted into epiphany.

That's all I remember of this dream, and your description brought this dream-figure to mind immediately.
