‘The Daleks set the bloody place on fire!’ screamed Ron, grabbing Hermione’s hand as he flew by. Hermione let out a soft, gasped, ‘what?!’ before she was gone, following him with the question dying on her lips as bright, orange flames licked after them; tasting their heels and singing the edge of their shoes. The heat of it, combined with their flee, mingled to entice beaded sweat upon the back of their necks, slipping past the necklines of their clothes.

‘Harry!’ cried Ron.

‘Doctor!’ corrected Hermione, and former-Harry-now-Doctor turned to inquire them with an arched brow – as though there were no care really to have despite the whole fire issue.
