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

Somersby Fudge vs. Emmeline Woodcroft
9th February, 1889 — Great Hall
A pair of seventh years promised for a impressive competition and Connie couldn't decide which of the two she favoured for this particular match. Certainly she had hopes for Miss Woodcroft, but it felt harsh to root against Mr Fudge simply because she longed to see more young ladies excel at duelling. 

"Mr Fudge shall take the offensive first. Please begin."

With a smile at Miss Woodcroft Somersby bowed at his classmate, then readied his stance. Dueling wasn’t exactly his thing, but it was good practice so he supposed he should enter into the competition for one last year. That in mind Somersby aimed and cast “Confundo.” Hoping to confuse the young lady before she could cast her own spell.

@Emmeline Woodcroft @Fortuna Bixby
Emmeline's confidence was something that had grown over the summer so signing up for the dueling competition had seemed like a good idea. With a smile and nod to the Slytherin matron, she turned her attentions to her opponent.

With the niceties out of the way, she brought up her wand and cast a shield charm in hopes of blocking Mr. Fudge's spell.

Connie considered for a moment whether the girl looked any more confused that most girls did at eighteen before she concluded that nothing was out of the ordinary.

"A good attempt Mr Fudge, but Miss Woodcroft takes the round and will begin the second."

Somersby: 9
Emmeline: 10

Still smiling Emmeline, gave a small nod before she began the second round. "Levicorpus," she cast. Surely he couldn't cast a spell being hung up in the air.

Not to be deterred Somersby cast a shield charm in hope of a tie. Perhaps if he was successful he might be able to get a bit more practical experience from this.
