Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Dear [Brother/Cousin*],

How are you?

Good news! I thought I should let you know that I've moved out of Dad's house and to London.

Also, funny story, I'm married.

Happy Friday!

Love,
Lorcan

I had long hoped you'd come to your senses and leave your father's, but never imagined you wouldn't do so to come home where you belong, you daft twat! And insult to injury, you've gone and eloped?! You'll be lucky if I don't give you a swift kick to ensure this ill-advised foolishness is not consummated any more fully than it already has been!

You useless bundle of horklump snot. Do you truly lack the decency to respond to a damned letter? Have you lost complete control of social niceties as well as your senses? Your mother flails about in her grave, ruing the day she birthed such an imbecile!

Married—married! Scarcely more than a boy and on a mediwizard’s salary, and you’ve gone and bewitched some poor girl with even less between her ears than YOU into marrying you?!

(Merlin’s beard she had better not be a veela or I will haul you down to the Ministry by your nostril for an annulment!)

And no word of your address! You hate your family so much you’d leave them, then disappear into the night with your new family?

I hope she cooks so poorly that you choke on a chicken bone and lose the gift of speech.

Dear, dear Maeve,

Always lovely to hear your dulcet tones. Hold your horses, though - I know, and I am sorry to spring this on you - but I was going to write you back, promise.

No one's done any bewitching, either, you'll be relieved to hear. I don't expect you to understand, but you know very well that I don't hate my family in the slightest - I just don't need all the aunts bearing down at me at once. They're kind of A Lot. (In fact, I'd rather hoped you might talk them round for me?) And I'll happily give you my address, and we'll all stay in as good touch as ever, if you don't end up giving my new wife a heart attack with any more yelling. Or kicking, thank you, cousin.

Other than that, she cooks very well and we're both very happy. I hope you'll be happy for me too.
Lorcan

Finnian,

Come by and see for yourself any time. She bakes, too.

You bet I'll be there. I might need that address, though. I realize I'm relying on the owl to make sure these get to you.

You'll be pleased to know, I expect, that I've not gone and died in my efforts to reverse the fog. You'll be unsurprising, I hope, that you were not my first thought upon returning home, but I gather from my mother that there is no evidence that Mrs. Byrne is yet expecting. Thus, since I still cling to the hope that she trapped you into marriage with your foolish progeny, please be advised I can get you out of this ridiculous situation with ease.
