A bit after this.

Somewhere in the back of Wellard's mind, there's an alarming drum beat and the mental shout of beat to quarters!

However, one must do things differently at Milliways than one would do on board ship.

Thus, there is a knocking at Finn's door, though in a couple moments, unless there's no protest to the contrary, Wellard will more than likely enter.

It is an acceptable habit, to the both of them.

When he walks in he'll find Finn perched on the higher wooden headboard of his bed, sword and sheathe laying on the matress, as he appears to be in the middle of taping a sketch to the ceiling

--Or he was. Right now he's balancing with his left arm held up against the sketch, bare toes curled around the headboard, and watching the door.

A blink is about all the surprise Wellard shows for Finn's unusual location.

"... My apologies for interrupting, Finn. But there's a- a situation." Quietly. Carefully.

If Milliways was on fire, Wellard would probably be shouting a lot more- but the building burning down around them would be a simple, straightforwards manner.

This is far from it.

"Okay," Finn says, and puts the last piece of tape (stuck to his thumb) onto the sketch, stepping lightly off the headboard onto his bed, and then the ground.

"What is it?"

Wellard shuts the door behind him, then turns back to Finn.

"Apparently Blodwen Rowlands is back, and has either gone back to the Dark, or gotten some other type of power- she killed Mary's apple tree by withering it in a day." His jaw clenches, and Wellard forces himself to take a deep breath.

"I haven't seen her, and I've no idea where she is- but given that, I doubt if her plans are to our benefit."

Finn pauses in the middle of buckling on his swordbelt again, watching Wellard for a moment before resuming.

"Can she die?"

Wellard snorts.

"That's a rather good question. Apparently she's had a house dropped on her, was banished and returned, then the Dark stripped from her and was mortal but still living-

"But now, who knows what she can do, and if she's still human? And who knows what can kill her, and keep her dead?"

He frowns suddenly, glancing out the small window for a moment-

Then after a deep breath, he looks back to Finn. "No one here can risk her returning again. If any of us find a way to kill her- not banish, not strip away her powers, not imprision, but kill her, quickly, cleanly and completely, we need to do so. If she gets another chance, again-"

Finn doesn't say she won't. Instead he looks sideways at Henry. "Not you."

It's said with calm certainty, not the fond long-suffering he usually displays when telling Henry not to do stupid things.

He blinks, and eyes Finn.

"I know nothing about what she can and cannot do, now- but I doubt if there is anything that I could do to her that would... that would take, as it were." Wryly. "I won't go looking for trouble, Finn, and that is all I can reassure you of."

Wellard will do his best- but he also will not make promises he may not be able to keep.

"Okay," Finn says, and he relaxes very slightly. "I won't, either."

A quiet sigh of relief, and Wellard nods.

"At the moment, though- I've no idea of what she's really capable. I don't know if anyone knows, and I certainly don't know what she knows of recent going-ons around here-"

He bites his lip.

"I'd like to think she doesn't know about the ship. The boatyard isn't visable from the back door of the bar, the green house, or stables. Unless she goes walking in the woods, she shouldn't find out about it, but..."

Finn tilts his head, confused. "But it's already dead."

Then, anticipating another lecture about boats, hurriedly adds: "The wood, I mean. You can't kill it? Unless--you mean with fire."

Wellard raises an eyebrow at Finn.

"Which is something any normal mortal can do, much less someone with an unknown ability." He frowns. "Add magic into the mix, and there's any number of things a person can do to it, the very least of destroying the magic that Elda's built for it."

A deep breath, and Wellard shakes his head. "We can't put up anything that might hurt someone innocent, wandering by. But I have a few ideas for things that will let us know if someone's been there, so we can be more careful, ourselves."

"What do you need help with?"

"Just a few things that I need some extra hands for. Nothing too complicated." Wellard manages a ghost of a grin, and gives Finn a sideways glance.

"Shouldn't be too complicated- afterall, if I have to just make do with your help..."

"But you do need my help, to do something simple," Finn retorts, with a quick grin. "I wonder how great you'd be without it."

Wellard rolls his eyes with exaggerated patience, and turns to open the door.

"I'd have to manage, somehow- which seems like a situation more and more appealing as time goes by."

Just remember, Finn- you too can be replaced by a simple machine!

"I'll go on strike," Finn answers peacably, turning back around to face Wellard once he's in the hallway, "and see how you like it."

Maybe he'll get Jamie to help him make signs.

Wellard eyes Finn, and mutters something about 'labor unions' under his breath as he starts down the hallway.

The work on placing tell-tales around the ship will get done- easily, with four hands.

The snark will continue long after they're finished.
