Alt Text: Don't mess with magic.

I like this one. Why? Magic.
Also, Lewis raises a good point in the annotation.

What would happen if the henchmen tried to use triangulation?

They would be unsuccessful.

My answer to Lewis's comment is that magic makes impossible things possible. It should not make possible things impossible.

They would be unsuccessful.

What would the nature of their unsuccess be? Would they go to the wrong place?

If magic warped the space around the diamond, then the distance would be right but irrelevant, and thus would appear to not work.
But it's possible that the magic would inhibit triangulation in some other way. This is but speculation.

No, the arrow would lead toward the diamond. But they wouldn't know how far away it was, just what direction it's in.

But what if they did this with the arrow in two different places? Would they just never be able to simultaneously remember all the necessary pieces of information to find the distance?

Or will the arrow just lose its magic if it is moved other than along the line in which it points? That seems like the easiest sort of magic for First Folio to have enchanted it with if she knew what direction the diamond was in from that place.

Is first folio a female? I forgot.

It's easy to remember because it alliterates.

It happens because it happened in the past.
