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

Professor Wenlock vs. Professor Yi
February 10th, 1889 — Hogwarts Great Hall

It had, of course, been his idea. After all, he had argued, how could the students truly become invested in dueling, eager participants with a thirst to learn, if it was not modelled for them? True, as he had looked at the names of the participants Nik had been skeptical as to whether this would be good modelling, but at the very least, the students would be in for a bit of fun.

“I expect a clean duel,” the professor remarked to his colleagues with a wry smile. The advantage of working with adults in this capacity is that they could simply be provided with a copy of the rules in advance—saving him both time and tedium. “Professor Wenlock, please begin!”

Ainsley had signed up on a whim. While Arthimancy may have been her forte, she had still done rather well as a student through her younger years.

A small nod was given to Professor Sleptov before turning to Professor Yi and givin him a nod and bow as well. She then brought her wand up and cast a spell wot the intention of turning the gentleman's hair a vibrant shade of pink.

@Roberto Devine / @Tae-min Yi
Going through the proper greeting things, Tae-min cast a disarming spell. Not that he would have minded pink hair but he did want to see if he could win at least one round.

"First point to Professor Yi," the wizard announced, "who will begin the next pass!"

Pleased to have won the first round, Tae-min decided to cast the antler jinx for his next turn.

@Ainsley Wenlock /@Jack Watson
Ainsley hardly seemed perturbed that she hadn't won the round. She raised her wand and cast a shield charm. Perhaps Professor Yi's spell would rebound upon himself.

@Odira Potter
This time, the Transfiguration professor found success with a shield charm. Nik awarded her the second point, and directed her to begin the tie-breaker. The students watching, he noted wryly, seemed invested; the wizard wondered how many had wagered their pocket change on this tournament.

Ah, a tie breaker. A small smile graced Ainsley's features as she raised her wand and cast a simple, but hopefully efficient, jelly legs jinx.
@Roberto Devine
For his turn, Tae-min cast the confusion charm.

@Aldous Crouch
The confusion charm accomplished its mission, and Nikolai declared Yi to be the duel's winner.
