Except I think that there the term "bully" is used to mean "make do
stuff," possibly. Like...oh, yes. Sophie bullies Calcifer into making him
bend his head down. It's more of a boss-around thing, not a hazing
thing. It could edge over into abusiveness, but I think it's more that
Christopher and Milly are leader-type people, so they tell other people
what to do.
