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

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
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...

Left Out To Dry
April 27th

I arrived at Mrs. Black's house party last night and told everyone you had become quite ill. I almost hope that's the truth, because I can think of no other reason you might be avoiding a gathering at the home of one of my close friends. Your absence is quite conspicuous, though I hope I was able to disguise how much of a surprise it came to me.

I hope you will be feeling better by the time the season starts next month. It shall be difficult to make last-minute excuses for you at our own parties.

You might, at least, have told me you weren't coming.

April 28th, 1888
I had informed Mrs. Black upon receipt of the invitation that I did not think my health would permit me to attend. It seemed the easiest route, given my lack of engagement with society of late, and in truth I suspected—rightly—that simply wouldn't have it in me to pretend I wanted to be there.

I do hope my absence will not prevent you from having a jolly time. Please give my best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Black, and extend once again my regrets.
With affection,
April 28th

If your absence prevented me from enjoying myself I should hardly have smiled for the last year, would I have?
