I think Zacharias Smith was definitely related to Hepzibah Smith. While the last name is common for muggles, it originates from ‘blacksmith’, which isn’t something the wizarding world probably had a lot of need for. Not to mention, both of their first names are hebrew in origin. In which case, I think the only reason Zacharias was sorted into Hufflepuff is because of family ties (being Hufflepuff’s heir) in the same way the Weasleys go to Gryffindor, all bar one Black went to Slytherin, etc.

When Eren is sad, everyone is sad. Eren`s always the one to lift spirits by doing or saying something stupid, but when all the ridicule for being a “monster” finally gets to him, everyone is devastated by his crestfallen attitude. Connie is the first to try and cheer him up with a lame joke he heard, but all he gets is a subtle nod. Sasha tries giving him her food, she nearly cries when he says he isn`t hungry. Mikasa offers him her scarf, but Eren solemnly reminds her it`s summer, Armin soon realizes that reading to him doesn`t help either.
Even the higher ups begin to notice the lowly atmosphere. Mike tells him he smells good, Eren is just confused. Hanji offers free experiments, on him, which he refuses. Even Erwin gives him a day off to rest, but the boy is still hurt.
No one notices, but Levi was hit the hardest by the shifter`s mood, he was in a shitty mood most of the time in general. Without Eren`s constant smiling and laughing, he felt more like shit than he used to. So even when it shocks everyone into silence, Levi can`t hold back giving the boy a comforting hug, because he just looks so sad. He can`t say he doesn`t feel at least ten feet tall when Eren smiles for him.

“These terrible things you would do,” she commented, and faltered for a moment, trying not to laugh; trying not to let him see as clearly as she felt it how much none of it would matter, that they would be burdened by pasts and secrets and errors and yet it would never be the burden that others might have wanted her to feel.
“You think I can’t forgive the blood on your hands?” she whispered, and he looked up at her, his grey eyes awash in warning, in mourning, buried in clips and glimpses of desolate futures she never wished to see. Where would you be a step back?
Here, she thought, closing her eyes as she kissed his hand. Here, and sooner.
