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

Constance Sykes vs. Hamish Darrow
Feb 10, 1889 - Great Hall
Rose was excited to see who'd come out on top here - both Mr. Darrow and Miss Sykes were fairly talented - and her enthusiasm was evident as she did the classic instructions and directed Miss Sykes to begin first.

@Constance Sykes @Hamish Darrow
It was just her luck to not only get one of the few members of staff she had no desire to duel whatsoever but also to have that duel being overseen by someone who was...distracting at best. Connie tried to ignore both things as she inclined her head towards Professor Darrow respectfully, feeling the chatter amongst the crowd die down as she raised her wand and attempted to encase the man in a glass box.

Hamish gave his opponent a congenial smile. The house matron was formidable in her profession, and so the wizard had no reason to suspect she would be any less so in this particular arena. Quickly, the wizard moved to disarm her before she could finish her own spell.

The thing with Miss Sykes and Mr. Darrow was that they were both good, they were skilled, and Miss Sykes' spell would have been formidable had it not been averted by an extremely successful disarmament. Conveniently, her wand landed near Rose's feet, and Rose handed it off to Connie before bidding Mr. Darrow to begin the second round.

@Hamish Darrow
With a gallant—if unnecessary—bow, Hamish fired a jelly-legs jinx at the Slytherin matron.

At least she hadn't been turned into a bloody animal again. Taking the loss in her stride Connie aimed to immobilise the Professor before he could properly cast his spell.

Professor Darrow's spell again triumphed narrowly, and Rose awarded him the duel.
