Glad you had fun!
I don’t think he did, no. Unless all his family have somehow died horribly, he seems a rather isolated figure in Highbury. If he had a family home/estate nearby, it would rather make more sense for him to bring his intended to the neighbourhood and marry her there (though perhaps in another parish or getting another clergyman to do the service.) Men could address each other by only their surnames whether they were childhood friends or not, and as Highbury is a small town, Mr. Knightley is a principle landowner, and Mr. Elton the spiritual head of the community, it’s not beyond reason that they might address each other as Knightley and Elton. (Though it’s gauche for Mrs. Elton to do this on a very slight acquaintance, and as a woman.) Mr. Elton is apparently due to inherit some property in the future, which makes me think he has family somewhere, but not in or around Highbury.
Also given their ages it’s impossible for them to have been classmates at any school.
I would categorize them as gentlemen who are on similar social footings within a very small society and get along because it’s best for everyone that they get along, rather than friends.

I’m about to state something very unpopular. I like “Clueless”. In fact, I think it is very entertaining, especially for 90s teen comedy. But I would never regard the 1995 film as one of the better adaptations of Jane Austen’s 1815 novel, “Emma”. Not by a long shot.
So I just finished The Promised Neverland season 1… I love these 3 so much 😭😭😭
30 - If you could ask JKR one question, what would it be?
This is probably the hardest one to answer, because I feel the pressure to come up with something really big and important and relevant, you know? I also feel like this is opening a big can of worms. I genuinely love the books and how they turned out and there’s not much i would change.
I never really got into the Harry Potter fandom, so my views on the series are still based on the opinions of the little girl who first read them and has kept them as she grew into an adult.
This to say that I like the child-like purity of my experience and more often then not, when JKR answers questions she diminishes the magic she originally created, more than add to it.
So maybe I would ask her something silly, that doesn’t change the endgame. Like, if Dean and Seamus fell in love or something

1. What is your Hogwarts House and which of that House’s traits resonate the most with you?
Ravenclaw and I think everything? I’ve always been a very intellectual person and valued my academic achievements a lot. I’m quite individualistic as well and appreciate other people’s individualities. I love weird and Im proud of my weirdness. I genuinely relate to every trait about this house 💙
8. What is your favourite quote/passage?
There’s plenty to chose from and Im generally really bad at answering “favorite” anything, but growing up, this one really resonated with me. Because I’ve always been so prone to plan and wait and daydream, I often have to remind myself to enjoy the present
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
12. Which character deserved better and why?
Ginny is a character that deserved more. She’s always been one of my favorites and while I really like her story, I wish we had seen more of her. Or seen her more as a real person, instead of always being a part someone else’s background. And Remus - I love and respect and admire him so much. And all of those feelings only grow as I get older and understand him better. He deserved to be happier for longer and to play a bigger part in the narrative.
He also deserved to fall in love and live happily ever after with a certain best friend of his
13. If you could swap one dead character for one character that survived, would would you revive and who would you kill?
Ugh, this one is so hard to answer. What about the butterfly effect?! I wanted to revive either Sirius or Remus, but I don’t think I could give them a happy ending without reviving other people too… So maybe I would bring back Fred? His death felt like the most “senseless” in the plot (in reality it served to show how cruel and unfair was is, which isn’t senseless at all) and having George go through life without his twin hurts so bad. So I would swap his life for Draco. While his redemption arc was really interesting and I understand that he, too, was a victim of the war, I just never connected to him as character, so I’d rather have him die in the Battle of Hogwarts
22. What do you think Amortentia would smell like to you?
Im not in love, so I can’t properly answer this. The smell of the potion depends on a specific person. So I’ll go with a smell I associate with love. Fresh linen - Its comforting and safe and intimate and smells like home.
25. Which of the Deathly Hallows would you pick and why?
The Elder Wand - it represents the magical elements I relate to the most.
