Whoever guessed that Harry would contain the final fragment of soul? I love that idea. I so very love it. It has a very Russian fairy tale feel to it, with Hari Tsarvitch going out to slay the evil magician only to realize that the evil magician has hidden his heart inside an egg inside a duck at the bottom of a well guarded by a bear who breathes fire.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
