- Ginevra Molly Potter (née Weasley)
Ginevra Weasley :
While Ginny understands and accepts his reasoning, she seems to feel that there may be better ways to approach this problem. He knows Voldemort often fells his victims by targeting their friends and loved ones, just as he did with Harry's godfather, Sirius Black. When Ginny returns to Hogwarts at Neville's bidding, on Harry's return there, we do see she is obviously pleased when she sees him, as she welcomes him with a bright smile.
When does harry and ginny start dating -
Still not sounding healthy. People meet randomly, start talking and eventually get together. Or what if he does exist, but is a Ravenclaw? Or maybe they stop being friends sometime before the last few books? There is no way they would have ended up together. But take a moment and think about how many actual conversations Harry and Ginny have.
True, there are more important things for Rowling to talk about, but it would have been nice to hear these guys talk. The nineteen years that pass between the defeat of Voldemort in The Deathly Hallows and the epilogue gloss over a lot. Mostly how Harry managed to adjust to life post-Voldemort. This wizard was literally inside of him for the first seventeen years of his life, not to mention all the close calls he experienced because of him.
Harry would have to go through some deep, serious therapy. Remember how much Harry was hounded by people after defeating Voldemort? Well, that would be going on for at least a decade. Not to mention all the conspiracy theorists who will constantly be harassing them, claiming that Voldemort is still out there. That puts a lot of strain on a relationship. In books three and four, she has no character development.
I think fans would like her a lot more if her characteristics were established early and she was consistently someone we needed to care about. As if she suddenly realized we had to give Harry a reason for liking her. Suddenly, Ginny becomes popular, smart, athletic, and attractive.
She becomes brave, dates lots of boys, and has no flaws. Good for her and all. In book five, Ginny makes the Quidditch team after Harry is cut from it. It turns out that she is amazing at Quidditch, apparently better than Katie Bell who has been on the team for five years! If Ginny is so good at Quidditch and loves it so much, why did she wait for her fourth year to try out? This part of her would have made more sense earlier. But her confidence and bravery seem to come after she gets over her crush for Harry.
She starts dating lots of boys and acts like a normal teenage girl, all without sending Harry any Valentines gnomes. All of her positive characteristics seem to come out when she is apart from Harry. And without those essential moments, it looks like Ginny was happier before she started dating Harry. This is just one theory. But you know what, Gryffindors can be really annoying!
The trouble with the sorting hat is that it creates some kind of personality-based class system where Gryffindors are seen as the best people ever because they are brave. Even though loyalty, cunning, and intelligence are great things to have. Gryffindors bully Slytherins and can just be really smug. Harry is very close to the Weasleys before he starts dating Ginny. Weasley knits him jumpers and cooks for him.
He spends some of his summer holidays there and seems to be very close to them. Harry sees the Weasleys as the ideal family he never had growing up. Sometimes I wonder if part of his attraction to Ginny is a desire to be family. Because of this, she is very protective and strict with Ginny, stopping her from having the same privileges and freedoms her brothers had at her age.
Then when it comes to Harry, Molly is much more lenient than she is with her sons. She fusses over him. So, when does this stop? Does she burst into their house on their tenth anniversary offering them cake and cleaning dirt off their faces? Then Ginny begins dating Dean Thomas. She breaks up with Dean in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , finally winning the affection of the only boy she has ever loved, Harry.
They continue to love each other, despite being separated, and Harry finds solace in studying the Marauder's Map to feel a connection to her at Hogwarts. They both take part in the final battle , after which we see that Harry plans that they will reunite.
In the Epilogue, we learn that Harry and Ginny have reconciled, Harry has married Ginny and they have three children. Excited about being close to the famous Harry Potter, she demands to go over and see him, but her mother refuses to allow it. She is excited again when he returns from Hogwarts, ecstatically jumping up and down at the sight of him.
Chamber of Secrets [ edit ] Ginny's enthrallment with Harry has grown, as she is uncharacteristically nervous and silent during Harry's stay at The Burrow. At Hogwarts, she seems particularly emotionally fragile when Harry is nearby, although that may partially be from her manipulation by Tom Riddle 's diary.
On Valentine's Day, Professor Lockhart , in an ill-starred attempt to "cheer up" the school, hires a number of dwarfs to dress as "Cupids" and deliver love poems to students. One of these costumed dwarfs has a poem for Harry; Ginny's apparent embarrassment as she witnesses Harry receiving it strongly suggests she was the sender.
We later learn that her embarrassment might be the result of her seeing that Harry has recovered Tom Riddle's diary. Shortly after this, Harry's dorm room is ransacked, and the diary is the only thing taken. As the diary is later seen in Ginny's possession, we have to believe she was the burglar.
Ginny gradually becomes more worried about the effect that Riddle's diary is having on her. It is perhaps worthy of note that it is Harry she tries unburdening herself to; unfortunately, Percy barges in, interrupting her.
Finally, as Ginny lies near death in the Chamber of Secrets , Harry destroys Riddle's diary, restoring her life force, and, with assistance from Fawkes , rescues her.
Once in Professor McGonagall's office, Harry tries to shield her from any disciplinary consequences of Tom Riddle's actions. In what remains of the book, she seems to be able to converse with Harry more normally, in contrast to the almost fearful way she had acted previously. In particular, on the Hogwarts Express she admits to having been worried that Harry would learn to communicate with the Diary.
She had told the disembodied spirit of Tom Riddle of her feelings about Harry, and was horrified at the thought that Tom might pass these confidences on to Harry. On meeting Harry again in The Leaky Cauldron , Ginny blushes thereby still confirming her feelings for him, and she seems to be self conscious about him having saved her life.
However, over the coming days and school year, she becomes her normal self, and seems able to converse normally with Harry still. The effect the Dementor has on Harry in the Hogwarts Express, and the similar, though not as marked, effect it has on Ginny, may seem to provide some common ground between them. And by the book's end, she is no longer as overwhelmed by her feelings for Harry and more often acts herself in his presence.
Goblet of Fire [ edit ] Ginny blushes on first seeing Harry when he arrives at the Burrow, indicating her feelings for him have not changed, though Ginny is still now less shy around Harry and is able to converse more naturally. When Ron suggests Ginny should attend the ball with Harry she appears disappointed, admitting that she had already accepted Neville 's invitation.
She seemingly remains unattached for the remainder of the book. Order of the Phoenix [ edit ] After the organizational meeting of what later becomes Dumbledore's Army , Hermione reveals that probably the only reason Michael Corner and his friends had shown up is because he was dating Ginny. Ron takes an instant dislike to Michael, says that he had thought Ginny was waiting for Harry, and asks how long that had been going on.
Hermione says that while Ginny had earlier been waiting for Harry, she had given up on him. She had then met Michael at the Yule Ball , and had started going out with him. Harry, bemused by Cho Chang smiling at him, is not concentrating on the fact that Ginny has stopped waiting for him, but he does ask Hermione if that's why she is now talking to him; she had always been so repressed in his presence before.
Hermione says that yes, it is. Hermione also says that Ron's anger at Michael is the reason that Ginny hadn't told him about it, she had known Ron would be over-protective, and didn't want to get into a fight. Now freed of the burden of waiting for Harry, Ginny is able to form a friendship with Harry, one that becomes closer over the school year, and they develop more understanding of each other. In the battle of the department of mysteries, Ginny has her ankle broken and is rendered unconscious, whilst screaming in fear, causing Harry to be concerned for her.
Late in the year, when Gryffindor beats Ravenclaw in Quidditch, Michael Corner sulks about his house's loss and isn't happy that Ginny was the winning Seeker, after she had replaced Harry earlier in the year on the Gryffindor team. On the Hogwarts Express back to London, Ginny tells Ron and Harry that because of his sulking she had broken it off with with Michael, who was now seeing Cho.
Ron is pleased by this news and suggests next time she should pick someone better, while hinting at that being Harry. Ginny then reveals she's started seeing Dean Thomas. This, of course, leaves Ron angry. Ron catches them kissing and is quite incensed at Dean's taking this liberty with his sister.
Ginny accuses him of merely being jealous because he does not have anyone to snog with kiss himself. Harry gradually realizes he is in love with Ginny and is jealous of Dean, but he keeps his emotions hidden, largely out of fear that his showing feelings for Ginny would damage his friendship with Ron.
He spends most of the year fighting his feelings and himself over this matter, while wishing for Ginny to break up with Dean. In an initially unrelated incident, Harry takes some Felix Felicis potion prior to his meeting with Professor Slughorn. Hidden under his Invisibility Cloak , he accidentally knocks into Ginny in such a way that she thinks Dean deliberately shoved her; luckily as is always the case with Felix Felicis , this finally prompts Ginny to break up with Dean.
During the Quidditch victory party, Harry, caught up in the excitement, seizes the opportunity to kiss Ginny in front of the entire Gryffindor Common room. They soon become lovers, laughing at how everyone is now talking about them. Ginny later admits him how she had never actually given up on him at all, never stopped loving him or hoping he might turn to her, and had always hoped they'd be together.
She explains how Hermione helped her overcome her shyness around Harry, helping her to just be herself, because this could cause him to take more notice of her. It was because of Hermione's advice that Ginny had stopped waiting for Harry and started going out with Michael Corner. The couple's happiness is short-lived, however. After Dumbledore 's funeral, Harry regretfully ends their relationship, telling Ginny that if Voldemort learns about their romance, he will use her to get to him, just as did with his godfather, Sirius Black.
Ginny is devastated, but she accepts Harry's reasoning. Deathly Hallows [ edit ] While preparing for Bill and Fleur's wedding, Harry happens to let slip to Ginny that he has been given a mission that will end up with him killing Voldemort. Ginny is apparently taken aback by this, and does not seem to accept Harry's trying to turn it into a joke. She later shows jealousy over Fleur's little sister batting her eyes at Harry.
Although Harry has ended their relationship, Harry and Ginny are still deeply in love with each other, presumably forever. Because of this, Harry does not resist when Ginny gives him his "birthday present", a kiss unlike any Harry has received before. This upsets Ron, who knows how distraught Ginny was when Harry had ended their relationship a month before.
Harry, aware that it was Ginny's idea, but unable to tell this to Ron and feeling guilty, simply says that it will not happen again. Because of this, their ongoing shared glances must be furtive, and on Harry's part at least, very quickly terminated.
When Ginny returns to Hogwarts at Neville's bidding, on Harry's return there, we do see she is obviously pleased when she sees him, as she welcomes him with a bright smile. She shows jealousy when she vetoes Cho Chang's offer to show Harry the Ravenclaw common room, instead volunteering Luna Lovegood for that job.
