                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The boss (Lady Fern's) used to remember the standard eight-pack of crayons in
this order--yellow, red, orange, blue, green, purple, brown, black.  Now that was
really in error, because that sixth color crayon was really marked as violet.  Is
that discrimination against an Iris?  Lady Fern says, "Leave it alone, Dummy."
     The boss felt he was really in heaven when the 48 and 96 packs came out, and to
this day, he loves colors of all types.  So, if one were to wonder why so many
Consortium teams had some form of color involved, well.....
    The two most prominent are us, The Flower Girls, who have a color in our name,
and Animal Farm (DM11--initially DM20) which has an alliterated color and animal
name. (Green Gnu was one of our earliest favorites--and Ecru Elephant is a current
lovable.)
     And how does that apply to a DM Column? Tune in next time.
             Insolent Iris, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in FRATSFA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BANDOR?  EPYC 
DEATH's proud of him after beating FOUR and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  SUE SOON's match with KHALHUMS DWARF cost her a loss of 14 points!  Oh, wow, 
like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all FRATSFA.  She got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) PAS DE QUARTIER thinks his 14-18-1 and 
studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  INSOLENT IRIS stopped PAS DE QUARTIER dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of BLOOD AND GUTS! must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are SITTEES?  BLOOD 
AND GUTS!, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All FRATSFA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  FRATSFA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I knew I could lead this sweet Peony to the climax!  Sunflower, please join the
fun....  And now I'm leaping on the irresistible Iris!! -- Pas de Quartier,
getting flower-crazy

Sue Soon -- You are just the cutest little thing.  I love spanking that cute little
posterior. (sigh)  I wish, now, that you would come on over to The Flower Shoppe and
do mine.  (wink) -- Insolent Iris

Pas De Quartier -- Turnabout is fair play, you Hunk!  Oooooo.  That is such a
formidable weapon you employ. -- Painful Peony

Oak Lee -- Somehow I don't think I got that exactly right.  I'm willing to try again.
(giggle) -- Outcast Orchid

Byron -- How charming of you to pluck my petals one-by-one.  So nice. -- Sizzling
Sunflower (feeling oversizzled)

Congrats to Sittees and Flower Inc, top career team and top three turn team.  You
guys sizzle! -- Lady Fern

Iris -- Now that wasn't a nice thing to do, you knew I'd be running wide open.  Be
interesting to see if I get my challenge this time and how things may turn out. --
Sue Soon

Orchid -- Nice try, I see why you're an outcast, don't feel bad so am I!!! -- Oak Lee

Sizzling Sunflower -- Your sizzle didn't seem to show up, better luck next time! --
Byron

All -- I am so proud to be Barnabas' first AB to make it to graduation, it's hard to
keep back the tears.  He has been cringing ever since I first started in this arena
but has at last calmed down.  Thank you for all the wonderful fights and victories,
you are all so kind. -- Shy Ann
