Notes: Spoilers for "Will You Tolerate This?"

Blood throbs in his throat, and despite the rough bag covering his face, Will can see deliriously flashing lights. Everybody’s screaming. He hears Dad scream for the first time. He wants to scream, too, but he can’t form sounds without breath. It hurts worse when he tries, like digging a million needles into fresh wounds to draw out a million splinters.

Then, another, distant, screaming voice invades the blurry edges of his senses. Righteous words, being screamed in Nottingham, are as rebellious as the filthiest profanity.

The world rights itself violently.

With his first new breath, Will screams for Luke.
