Setting Myself Aflame

Characters: woman, me, man

I was at a dinner table, and using sorcery someone turned a dog into a horrific Hell-hound. At first, it continued to obey orders. But then it started going out of control, and I stepped up to intervene. A woman held me back.
woman: (annoyed) "What is your problem?"
me: "Well, I always like being helpful if I can."
woman: "You only want to get involved because you want more power."
me: "Power is not my issue. Or at least, I want everyone to have power. As long as no one controls the information on how to get power, and people aren't blocked from meeting each other, I'm happy."
man: "I think it's time for a fight. Are you ready?"
me: "All right then, let's go."
A man challenged me to a fight, and I accepted.
Note I somehow gleaned that the person I was fighting was a magic teacher, who I was paying to learn tricks. It was also suggested I was paying too much per day for this service.
He had some weapons, but all I did was grab a burning candle off the table. When I saw how unafraid he was of me, I used the candle to set myself on fire and become a flaming fire man. The fire started in the center of my chest, and I pushed forward...consuming my enemy in the flame.
I was something like the Human Torch:
...who is a character in the Fantastic Four.
After that, I was in front of a mirror and seemed to have an audience watching. So I extinguished myself, and somehow grew another head out of my neck. I was questioned by the crowd.
man: "Do you think you are being shown too much too fast, simply because he wants to create chaos?"
me: "I don't know. I don't know anything, really. In fact, I don't even remember how I got here. Can you tell me what you think my name is?"
This gave me some strange answers back, including an explicit spelling of my name which started with an M and went on for about 13 letters.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
