But the Old One, who was a part of her, had to be destroyed to in order for her to be dissolved, and his chains can only be broken if all of Creation is undone as well.

Also Arthur, although in his case his complaint was that the sorcery involved would leave him unable to return home without causing sickness and potentially killing his home town.

* AlternateHistory: Arthur's world is ''almost'' the same as ours, except it was the scene of a devastating plague that prompted the government to take the hard line on any epidemic.
** However, it may not apply. Arthur's hi-tech cast in Drowned Wednesday, and the fleetingly mentioned electronic paper are two examples of future technology, meaning that the plague could be a future event, and the story is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture.
