Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Chrysanta Ruskin vs. Royal Pyrites
9th February, 1889 — The Great Hall, Hogwarts
Carmelina expected, as the students reached OWL level, and NEWT, that these duels would prove a rather nice space to exercise their creativity. With high hopes, once she had recited the rules today, she peered from the gentleman to the young lady and offered, "Miss Ruskin, if you would cast first!"

@Chrysanta Ruskin @Royal Pyrites

Crystal decided to try and light Mr. Pyrite's clothes on fire. Pyrite sounded close to pyro so it seemed to be a fit.

Royal had signed up for this thing as something to do with his time. When it came to his turn, he went for a shield spell.

If Carmelina had been worrying about the boy if his clothes caught fire too vigorously, she needn't have, as his shield charm held robustly. "The first round to Mr. Pyrites," Carmelina declared, nodding at the Gryffindor, "Mr. Pyrites, if you will."

@Chrysanta Ruskin @Roberto Devine

Royal was pleased to have won the first round. He honestly hadn't been expecting it. For his turn, he went with a jelly-brains jinx.

@Chrysanta Ruskin
Frowning at her losing the first round, Crystal decided to use the same attack she had before. Maybe it would work a second time.

This time, however, Miss Ruskin succeeded in setting the boy's clothes on fire. A little worried about possibly having to send him to the hospital wing if she let him fend for himself, Carmelina doused the fire with a swift Finite before she said, a little out of breath, "It seems we're in need of a tie-breaker. Miss Ruskin, if you will cast next." (Hopefully the Slytherin would do them a favour and try a different spell this time.)

ROYAL: 7.5 | CHRYSANTA: 10.5

Pleased that she had managed to set Mr. Pyrites on fire, she went with a tickling charm for the tie-breaker.

Not much pleased with having been set on fire, he cast a spell that would hopefully transfigure the girls wand into a licorice wand.

@Carmelina Cramming / @Elias Grimstone
As well as she had done with her fire in the last round, even Miss Ruskin was not talented enough to accomplish much with a licorice wand. With an amused little grin, Carmelina returned the Slytherin's wand to its original state and declared Mr. Pyrites the winner of the duel.
