Secret-Keepers!

JKR answered the question of what happens when a Secret-Keeper dies.

This would be an immensely simple way for an unethical wizard to keep something secret forever. Make someone the secret-keeper of it, then kill them.

It's a dark, dark world that she writes in.
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?
