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

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...

Dancing Horses
July 4th, 1888 - Padmore Park, Hogsmeade

During his time with the carnival Ri had seen his fair share of weird things, but the fog was perhaps one of the biggest nuisances yet. First they had been guaranteed then the fog had moved in and the festival was pushed back. As if the lost profits from that weren’t bad enough the carnival was left without magic and forgotten in the middle of town with no way out. The most excitement the carnies had had was when one of the trolls escaped - although that of course was rather a public relations disaster.

Ri luckily had his side business to keep him occupied, but he chafed at the situation. Bored, Ri wandered to the edge of the carnival tents near where they had the winged horses tied up and peered into the fog. Not that there was anything to see with the dense fog everywhere. The horses whinnied and pranced as if someone were coming along, Ri shook his head at them. They seemed more skittish than normal in this fog.
Archelaus was trapped in the fog and getting very much over it already. He had headed out to seek something to alleviate his boredom. He could hear horses in the distance and went in that direction. It was hard to really navigate in this fog but it was better than being cooped up at home. He was still somewhat surprised when a man and the horses seemed to practically just appear in front of him. "Startled me there. Damn fog."

Apparently the horses weren’t the only thing that the fog was making skittish. The man who appeared before Ri seemed to be of this same category. Ri shurgged amiably enough, “Does tend to make things just appear out of the blue.” He supposed that was the man’s primary issue.

Looking for something or just out on a stroll?” He had found this was the politest way to approach what someone was after and if they were looking for a good from him. This man didn’t exactly look like his normal customer though. Granted enough people had surprised him over the year that he’d learned just to accept anyone as a potential customer.
"True enough," Arch said. Plus a lot of people were freaked due to the lack of magic. As a person who legally couldn't even use magic, Arch wasn't bothered by that bit too much.

"Looking for things to cure boredom," Archelaus replied with a shrug. "Got anything for that?" He was joking, mostly. Though maybe a carnival visit - he had heard that the acts that could perform were doing so - would cure that. Who knew.

The boy came forward a bit and Ri realized he was much younger than he had anticipated. Certainly still a boy. But he was never one to judge. A customer was a customer and a bored customer was the best kind. Ri smiled slyly, “I may, if you’d be interested” It didn’t seem as if the boy knew the words to make the exchange as fluid as those that knew such purchases could be made, so Ri left it at that. Wondering if the boy even knew what he was asking. If he pressed the matter, Ri would press his goods. He had the perfect magical pills from Egypt that were based off of opium and several charms. They were pricey, but would certainly cure the boy’s boredom.
