Circus Ambulatory

Ok so you’ve had a few bigtops stalking the land, an episode in the life of Rose and Jade, and a few other scraps.
Do you want more of this stuff, and do you want the accompanying back story in text?
Suggestions please. Possibilities might include Stephan the knife thrower, his target Isabella, Wulf the spider boy, the Jenson triplets (acrobats of short stature), Sabine the Art Brut tattooed lady, Gloria the mermaid (alive!), Professor Merkin the prestidigitator and his novel prestige (never yet seen this far West), Mistress Kolmya and her performing skymonkeys, and Angmagssalik the incredible. There are, of course, numerous aerialists, clowns, fire jugglers, and sideshow acts, dubious carnies with tiny hands, and the odd jungle beast.
