Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Sweet to Meet You
May 12, 1888 - Honeyduke’s Sweet Shop
Acacia was having a lovely time at Honeyduke’s as she and a few other students shuffled about the shop. It was one of the few trips to Hogsmeade that she had participated in since going back to school. After all, the first term of the year was like an all too long, and stressful, Hogsmeade ‘weekend’.

Still, it was nice to be back in Hogsmeade. Enjoying the familiar surroundings, the nice shops. And getting to buy a treat was one thing that she was looking forward to. It had taken her some time as she gazed over the shelves, smiling softly as she considered her many options.

Finally coming to the conclusion that she should go with something sweet and light, she reached for one of the candies just as another person had the very same idea. Bumping hands, she looked up at the man, smiling apologetically. “My apologies.” She said kindly. How clumsy of her.

Spirits had been high after Puddlemere's first match against Wimbourne and Thomas was certain their match against the Appleby Arrows on May 11th was going to be just as easy to beat. Thomas was playing at Appleby's stadium which put the team at an immediate disadvantage and every time one of their chasers scored, a volley of arrows was shot into the air. It rather dangerous and extremely distracting, Thomas thought.

Alas, unfortunately, Appleby won and Thomas was adamant it was anything but Puddlemere not playing at their finest. He'd scored a few quaffles with his new broom though that was nothing to the snitch being caught by the opposing team.

It was demoralizing, annoying and, above all else, it was frustrating. They'd ended the last season on a high note and started this one on a high note but now they'd lost against some northerners who shot arrows from their wands. Show-offs.

Thomas had decided it would be best to let off steam and though his mind immediately went to the casino-variety, Thomas elected to go to Honeydukes instead to put himself in a candy coma. That was, eat so much candy that you pass out from pure sugar-induced euphoria. It was as good as playing Quidditch, really.

When he entered the store, the Chaser noticed it was full of school children. He sighed and moved over to a basket of chewie snakes in the hopes he wouldn't be noticed. He picked up a paper bag and reached to grab some candy.

As he did so, someone else's hand brushed against his own and be pulled back, looking at the intruder. She was quick to apologise.

Thomas smiled back, "It's alright, miss." Thomas lulled his head slightly, "You from 'Ogwarts, then? You on your day out?"

He might as well make small talk whilst standing away from the crowd; it saved him being recognised by others.
