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...

A Berry Good Day
13th September, 1888 — The Fruitbowl, Gryffindor Table, The Great Hall
His hedgehog digestion did not always like human food, and Aubrey had not yet gained a true appreciation for The Worm Diet, but berries were fine in both worlds. Berries were good. Berries were great.

Aubrey had smelled them, and done the necessary parkour to find himself now bathing in a bowl of them at breakfast, hidden under the heap as he noisily scarfed his way through the raspberries at the bottom. That was... until the berry heavens opened above him! Shit, exposed!

The nearly two weeks that had passed since arriving at Hogwarts had given Carius the appropriate time to settle into his new house, and making the Gryffindor quidditch team - and as a beater, too! - had given him affirmation that if he couldn't blend in well with his house-mates, he might as well lead them in a few years.

One of his dorm-mates had convinced him to come down to breakfast that morning despite his insistence that he had to finish his Potions homework. He'd avoided anything especially heavy, not wanting to further upset his stomach that had already been aching from anxiety. His dorm-mate had directed him to a bowl of berries, but upon opening it, he found himself face-to-face with something distinctly inedible: a.... hedgehog!?

Carius' brows shot up in surprise. "What the -" he said, mouth gaping at the revelation. Hedgehogs had not been on the list of acceptable Hogwarts pets, but neither were they as common as the rats he imagined roamed the kitchens. "Uhhh, you're not supposed to be here," he said, his unease evident as he spoke to the creature rather than the students around him. What was he supposed to do with a hedgehog?

(And more importantly, were they truly as spiky as they looked? He was tempted to touch it.)

What are you looking at?! Aubrey yelled, embarrassed to have been caught, the words coming out as a quiet hedgehog snuffle as usual. He shook a few berries off his back - he could feel them getting wedged in amongst his spines, which was less ideal than getting to wedge them all in his mouth, but - and shrank warily from the unfamiliar boy now looming over him.  

You're damn right I'm not supposed to be here, Aubrey snuffled next, supposing that if he stared upwards with beady eyes particularly intently he might get the message across. (It was something he always tried with new people. Never worked, funnily enough.) Maybe the boy would just back away and let Aubrey manoeuvre himself back out of the berry bowl with some dignity. You never knew.
