Looking at her opponent, Izzy couldn't help but think that she had no chance of winning. Miss Browne was the Head Girl and a Ravenclaw so she was surely fairly skilled when ornamntal magic was concerned. Still, Izzy considered herself a good student, so she hoped that she would at least do a good job.
She took a deep breath and then waved her wand. If everything worked right many colourful latterns would start floating above their heads.
Though she knew many of her peers disagreed, Odira had grown quite fond of the fact that ladies were restricted in the magic that they used. Though it made for a slower pace, it also made the entire thing far more creative—Odira suspected that females ought to have a competition of their own for this, but would hardly belabour the fact. With a smile, she curtsied to Miss Peverell before the Slytherin began, and then watched the other witch’s performance, all the while contemplating her own.
Then it was her turn. Clearly and fluidly, Odira cast her charm (for they were, by far, her best avenue), in the hopes that it would be successful: with any luck, the enchanted ceiling of the Great Hall would stop displaying the crisp autumn day outside and cloud over, before dropping multi-colored snowflakes on the two contestants below. It was ambitious, Odira knew, but would be quite lovely should she succeed.
She smiled as it was announced that she had won the first round, then quickly nodded to acknowledge Miss Peverell—though Odira was truly pleased to have had such a good start, she did not wish to appear a poor sport, particularly when her yearmate’s spell had been so well done. Raising her wand to cast again, the Ravenclaw hesitated only a moment before deciding what to do and voicing the appropriate incantation. Though a safer spell than that she had just performed, the seventh year hoped it would prove equal to the task—the spell as intended would transfigure the skirt of her dress into one made up of myriad peacock feathers.

While Izzy felt disheartened of her defeat, she still gave the Ravenclaw a smile to congratulate her. Her spell was really well done and she didn't seem to have taken her victory way too seriously. When she casted a spell on her clothes, Izzy decided to focus on the room they were in. It would be easier to attract other's attention that way, instead of just focusing on something particular.
The spell she had picked was a rather ambitious one, but if everything worked properly it would surely be an impressive one. Izzy was planning to create an illusion above their heads which would make the sky above them show a distanced view of Hogsmeade.
Unfortunately, Miss Peverell's spell was not as successful as she had hoped and so failed to impress Icarus more than Odira's had and consequently, it would mean she wouldn't be winning the dueling tournament this time.
"Miss Browne is the winner of the duel! Congratulations." He didn't decide to embellish any further than that.
