Yeah, but if Satan could've got in, he would be in reverse, so he'd be good, and if he weren't he'd get smaller everytime he tried to approach anyone and big and scary and toothsome every time he retreated. Even magic follows magic rules.
Hey, I know we're kind of beating this thing into the ground, and no one seems to have really liked the story, but I found this reference to the Danish Virgin Islands I thought I might as well throw into the mix:
"The debating group soon enlarged. In 1902, a new association had been formed, the Danish Atlantic Islands, its main purpose being to retain the Danish Virgin Islands in the West Indies. The association's members were colonial administrators and important businessmen, who wanted to strengthen the bonds between the colonies and the mother country by making them more profitable to Denmark. The Greenlandic section of the association was heavily weighted by the radical reformers in the debate, among them Schultz-Lorentzen and Mylius-Erichsen, who used the association to make contact with influential circles which were certain to be sympathetic to the idea of separating the trade and the administrations [in Greenland]. Their membership did not however mean that their concerns were focused on Danish business rather than the Greenlanders as Schultz-Lorentzen later clearly demonstrated."
"Denmark-Greenland in the 20th Century" by Axel Kjaer Sorensen, Meddelelser om Groenland [Monographs on Greenland] - Man and Society no. 34, Copenhagen 2006, pg. 26
Apparently Denmark sold the Danish Antilles to the United States which took possession in 1917. Wikipedia says Denmark's first colony was in India, a place called Tranquebar or Trankebar. Sounds like some kind of narcotic chocolate bar. And Frederiksnagore in Bengal, and Ny [New] Danmark in the Nicobar Islands, which, again, sounds like brownies for people who are trying to quit smoking. Denmark also seems to have a solid claim to a major chunk of Esthonia/Estonia, if they wanted it. At least as solid a claim as their one to Greenland, which they protected jealously against usurpation by the new Norwegian nationalists after the peace treaty between Sweden and Denmark following their war of 1815 eventually led to Norwegian independence.
I wonder if all this is reflected at least partially in the magic mirror.
