dealing with the witch

ding-dong the witch is dead --

The first one at any rate.

I comment on her body first, but then I elaborate on the breaking of her spells. Starting with the ones near the body. Furthermore, after the scenes where other spells break, the characters there when she died walk about that place.

I don't think they are unable to walk about the body as needed, but not without some kind of reaction on their part.

Have to decide whether they bury it, burn it, or watch it conveniently vanish. Hmm. Maybe the magical greenery will overgrow it in the last burst of magic.
