Oh, nice.  I forgot all about {Din}:

HQ 12.2:  For the end of a longish enclosed space that one is typically inside of or experiences from the inside, such as a corridor, tunnel, or conduit (say, a Jeffries tube or a branch of the sewers of Paris), a different word is used: {qa'rI'}. This is the only word; it's used for both (or all) ends. The open entryway leading into such a space is called a {Din}. If there's a door there, it's referred to by the usual word for door, {lojmIt}.

"In order for you [Warlock] to be avenged on me [Ivy]"  

Hmm... I think you've got that backwards.  If Ivy is speaking/chanting shouldn't that be {SoHvaD jInoDmeH} "In order for me [Ivy] to be avenged on you [Warlock]"?
