Today’s top item in Book News: Ginny Weasley, the freckly, flame-haired girl who later marries Harry Potter, grows up to be a sports journalist, according to new writing from J.K. Rowling on the website Pottermore. (Login required.) The stories are Ginny’s dispatches from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup for the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet. “Not a single Quaffle thrown, not a single Snitch caught, but the 427th Quidditch World Cup is already mired in controversy,” she writes. “Magizoologists have congregated in the desert to contain the mayhem and Healers have attended more than 300 crowd members suffering from shock, broken bones and bites.”

Something you wish didn’t happen in the books/movies regarding her, but did?
No matter how much it advances the plot and helps shape Ginny’s character, I’ve always wished Chamber of secrets and the whole diary incident didn’t happen. It hurts so much to see Ginny so hurt and lonely and confused and neglected.

Ginny Weasley 30 day Character Challenge: Day 10
Who is her ideal life partner in your opinion? Is it Harry, anyone else from HP or an OC?
Harry is Ginny’s ideal match and life partner. How do i know this? Let me count the ways….
1. JK created them to be soulmates. It really doesn’t get better than that. They are each other’s perfect complements.
2. Harry is the one Ginny wanted. This is an incontestable fact. She loved him from the very beginning. And her love only grew and matured with age.
3. Their shared experience of having their souls so intimately touched by Voldemort makes them ideally suited to understand each other’s demons and help each other deal with them.
4. Harry loves Ginny and has always cared for her. All seven books have instances of Harry noticing Ginny, worrying about her, disapproving of her brothers’ treatment of her, gently dispelling her fears, being attracted to her, and loving her. What more could a girl want?
5. Harry shares her sense of humor and values the same things as Ginny does. I have no doubt that Harry would be her fiercest defender and biggest cheerleader in all her endeavors.
6. Harry would never underestimate Ginny. Ginny is surrounded by men, and a mother, whose aim is to coddle her and protect her, severely underestimating her in the process. Little wonder she could hardly bear Dean’s gentlemanly overtures towards her. Harry, despite his extreme urge to protect her during the war, doesn’t underestimate her and is fully cognizant of her abilities. I think he would not come between Ginny and her independence.
7. Harry brings out the best in Ginny. He brings out her fierceness (no one, not even Hermione criticizes Harry in her presence) and her tenderness. He challenges her, and inspires her. And best of all, she knows she can trust him with her life.
Anonymous said:I don't even think Ginny hate has anything to do with her page time-no one says "Neville's bamfiness came out of nowhere because of Harry's POV!!!!" People are just lazy when it comes to Ginny.
Of course. There’s characters that come out of left field all the time, but it’s only a problem when Ginny does it. Everything about her - the fact that she’s popular, has friends, is good at Quidditch, is a talented witch - has been done before by previous characters in HP but she is the one that is criticized for it being “unrealistic”. Unrealistic? That a girl is good at sports and has friends and dates? In series of books about a magic academy in fucking Scotland where people get to school by going through an invisible wall in a train station and get to a castle in carriages pulled by invisible death horses? THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK IS UNREALISTIC?????????????
"And that’s Smith of Hufflepuff with the Quaffle,” said a dreamy voice, echoing over the grounds. “He did the commentary last time, of course, and Ginny Weasley flew into him, I think probably on purpose, it looked like it. Smith was being quite rude about Gryffindor, I expect he regrets that now he’s playing them - oh, look, he’s lost the Quaffle. Ginny took it from him. I do like her, she’s very nice…"

How do you think the diary incident influenced her? Good and/or bad?
The diary incident, in my opinion, influenced Ginny both for good and for bad. Let me explain. I wouldn’t say the incident had a negative influence on Ginny’s personality, but it certainly did on her emotions. I imagine there was a lot of emotional trauma associated with it, and it was rather long lasting. Four years after the incident, Ginny clearly still had some emotional struggle with it, as can be seen in the “Lucky you” incident.
As in all great “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger stories”, the incident also did Ginny a lot of good. I think we owe a lot of Ginny’s BAMFness to that incident. Of course, even as a child, Ginny showed signs of strong character when she defied her whole family by teaching herself to fly. But successfully surviving one whole year of possession by the darkest wizard of the time, and successfully overcoming the emotional trauma associated with it must have given Ginny’s confidence and belief in herself such a boost. A la, “if i can survive Tom Riddle, i can survive anything!”

I just love thinking about the parts of Ginny’s life that have absolutely nothing to do with Harry Potter
Ginny writing long-winded letters to Charlie about her Care of Magical Creatures classes and her feelings about Bill’s new earring
Ginny defending Luna in their classes together and holding hands with her in the hall
Ginny kissing Neville on the mouth and making him turn bright red
Ginny training for Quidditch tryouts because she’s really fucking good and knows she deserves a spot on the team no matter who’s the bloody Captain
Ginny doing her homework on her bed with Arnold sleeping in her hair
Ginny writing letters to Remus that include puzzles and riddles for Sirius, to keep him occupied, because she’s kind and compassionate and knows he’s having a hard time
Ginny taking astronomy just so she has an excuse to sit out on the North Tower at night, alone
Ginny teaming up with Peeves to wreak havoc and getting it blamed on Fred and George
Ginny helping Fred and George develop their anti-Dark Magic line bc she’s so damn good at DADA
and all the friends Ginny has that never get names because Harry doesn’t know who they are and never sees her with them, so it’s as if they don’t exist
man Ginny got shafted y’all, I want books from Ginny’s perspective
Anonymous said:The thing that irks me about so much of the Ginny criticism is that everyone seems to hold her to some standard that they don't for any other character. She gets a lot of flak for being a secondary character and not getting enough exposure but no one to my knowledge has said that about Luna, Bill, Charlie, or Hermione's parents. She's scorned for being 'bitchy' but many characters like the twins, Hermione, and SNAPE get a free pass and I'm fed up with her being singled out and torn apart.
Right? People whine about how Harry’s attraction for her came out of left field, but not really - plus, that year was when he did get attracted to her. Before, she was a kid, his friend’s kid sister, and then she grew up, got older and he developed romantic and sexual feelings for her. If he was making calf eyes at Ginny when she was 12 years old, that’d be pretty creepy, don’t you think? We are seeing the story through Harry’s eyes, and he generally liked her before that but not in such a significant way that would warrant he wax lyrical about her charms when he’s getting stalked by a mass murderer. I mean, I love Luna too but she didn’t get a lot of book time - hardly anybody did outside of Harry, Ron, Hermione and Dumbledore, lbr. If you think a character sucks and your sole argument is that they didn’t get enough book exposure, you better not say your fave is anyone other than the golden trio, tbh. Like, that’s a criticism on the author for not making more of an effort to develop and showcase her many characters, no on the characters themselves.
People just want to bag on Ginny because… I don’t even know why and I don’t care to find out. She doesn’t have to be your cup of tea or your fave, but the vitriol she gets is unwarranted and unfair, but whatever. This is, after all, the fandom that bends over backwards to excuse the behavior of literal terrorists by coming up with tragic backstories for them but will erase canonical facts to dump on characters they don’t like, as well as attack artists and other fans for theorizing that some characters could be PoC… that ain’t worth much 2 me

No character is perfect. So what aspects of her personality do you dislike?
I’ve thought of the answer to this question long and hard. After a lot of introspection, I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no aspect of Ginny’s personality that i dislike. This is not to say that she is has no bad qualities. Spare me the Mary Sue accusations! She does have bad qualities, among which are her quick temper, and her ability to lie without blinking. BUT, i personally don’t dislike these qualities in her. Heck, i sometimes wish i could get away with lying the way she did! Yup, i love Ginny just the way she is, flaws and all.
