"There you go. And you'd've met Timothy and Michael."
"I don't think you and Theodore are very compatible personalities. You care about some of the same things but - differently."

Minor writes Timothy for advice.
And that afternoon finds Miranda in the library doing her Transfiguration essay.
Minor comes and finds her. "Hey! Next weekend there're people pitching in for a Portkey from Hogsmeade down to London. I haven't any shopping in London this early in term but it's supposed to be the best time of year to fly the Channel. Would you like to go with me? As a date?"
"I - um -"
"I really like you. Have for a while."
