Studying your fan carefully, you're sure you could do the following things with it:
OPEN, CLOSE, FLIRT, KISS, DANCE, WAVE.
Note: OPEN will swap the thin-bladed fan to make it an edged weapon, CLOSE will change it to blunt the razor-sharp ends.
With a practiced flick of your wrist, you snap open your thin-bladed fan to expose the sharpened steel edges at the end of the blades.
You switch your fan so that you can use it as a light edged weapon.
With a practiced flick of your wrist, you snap your thin-bladed fan closed, savoring the weight of the weapon in your fist.
You switch your fan so that you can use it as a short staff weapon.
  • FLIRT when open: With a graceful swirl, you raise your thin-bladed fan to veil all but your eyes.
  • FLIRT when closed: Lowering your lashes, you oh-so-casually trace your closed fan against the curve of your cheek, slowly drawing it down to rest it against your other hand.
  • KISS when open: You raise your fan in a flirtatious swirl until it just barely hides your lips, being careful not to cut yourself on the sharpened steel.
  • KISS when closed: You tap your closed fan against your lips.
  • DANCE when open: With a theatrical flourish that belies the deadly nature of the razor-sharp steel blades, you twirl your thin-bladed fan in a half-circle, raising it above your head as you spin, then slowly lowering it in a dance of silk and steel that ends with the weapon displayed before you as you bow low.
  • DANCE when closed: Taking a breath, you begin a stylized dance, extending a silversteel thin-bladed fan adorned with lotus blossoms to balance your movements. You start on one foot, bringing your fan up and over your head with a quick swirl of your wrist, then step forward and turn as you lower the fan to finish the movement balanced upon your opposite foot.
  • WAVE when open: You flutter your thin-bladed fan absent-mindedly as you survey your surroundings.
  • WAVE when closed: Your thin-bladed fan is closed -- you'll need to open it if you want a breeze!
