"Ash nazg durbatuluk," the black-robed figures chanted. "Ash nazg gimbatul." The flames flared higher. "Ash nazg thrakatuluk." A shape formed in the fire, a slit of darkness. The flames rotated, angled like a magnetic field; the slit their magnetic pole. It looked disturbingly like the golden eye of a giant cat.

A blast of sound interrupted them. "Mary had a little lamb!" Dawn called through a megaphone. "Its fleece was white as snow!"

The cultists foolishly re-started the incomplete chant. "Ash nazg durbatuluk-"

The bonfire exploded. The cultists screamed as the flames engulfed them.

"Didn't even need Willow," Dawn said.
