The Trouble with Secrets. When this idea came to me I realized it was completely alternate universe to some extent. When the story begins it is the end of June and Harry is 20 years old. The only changes from the book is that Harry and Ginny never dated at school. Sirius, Fred, Remus, Tonks and Snape never died. And Harry dated Cho in fifth year for half the year. Chapter I:.
She had the typical Weasley family traits: flaming red hair which she wore in a long mane and a freckled complexion.
She was of light skin, a very petite stature, and bright brown eyes like her mother. When blushed, Ginny would go a shade of red that matched her hair. When in a highly emotional state, she was known to acquire a " hard, blazing look ". It was stated that due to her prettiness, Ginny was perfectly capable of attracting a certain amount of attention from boys. InPansy Parkinson stated that " a lot of boys like her " and that even Blaise Zabini found her "good-looking", with the additional observation that he was very hard to please when it came to the physical appearance of women.
Though Blaise immediately objected to this accusation, it could still count as a testament of sorts to Ginny's beauty. Viktor Krum also stated that she was very pretty during Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour 's wedding in Ginny was notably difficult to intimidate or frighten, as seen during her moments of standing up to Harry during his moments of rage and anger.
This is particularly impressive given that Harry's rages were capable of terrifying even his best friends Ron and Hermione, who were both incredibly courageous individuals. Her courage enabled her to take part in a three-way duel alongside Luna and Hermione against the powerful and insane Bellatrix Lestrange. Ginny was an animal lover, especially fond of cats. When Mrs Norris was petrified in her first year at Hogwarts, her brothers put her shock down to this fact, not knowing that Ginny was scared because she couldn't remember what she was doing at the time and feared that she was responsible.
Ginny's corporeal horse Patronuswhich she was able to conjure at age fourteen. Ginny's relationship with her family was a good one, having been raised in a loving environment. She would often comfort them especially her mother in times of need. The only and long-waited daughter in the family, she had to deal with an over-protective mother, who tried to prevent Ginny from war meetings and in the Battle of Hogwartsdespite her previous displays of power and skill fighting alongside Dumbledore's Army at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.
Nevertheless, she often helped her mother at housework and in tending wounded at hard times. Ginny appeared to worship her brother Billdefending his choice of earring and hairstyle to their mother,  and initially feeling that he could do a lot better than Fleur Delacourwhom she mockingly called " Phlegm ".
Ginny got on well with Charliebut found Percy to be a little overbearing and stuffy. She caught him kissing his girlfriend, Penelope Clearwaterduring her first year at Hogwarts, and proceeded to tell her other brothers about it after her recovery from possession by Tom Marvolo Riddle 's memory. Percy tried to be a role model for Ginny and Ron, but the two youngest siblings took after Fred and George, the fun-loving twins.
In temperament, she resembled the twins, Fred and Georgeand, like them, often teased Ron, who was closest to her in age.
Some of Ginny's brothers had difficulty accepting that their little sister was popular with the opposite gender; Ginny and Ron had a particularly nasty row after Ron caught her snogging Dean Thomasthough they eventually made up. Ginny has something of a love-hate relationship with Ron, while she loves him as a brother very much and cares deeply for him, their fights are usually quite ferocious.
She had no problem telling Ron off when she believed his behaviour was unreasonable and no issues with embarrassing him in public, as when she openly mocked him for his crush on Fleur and even tripped him in front of her.
In she and Ron had an vicious fight about Ginny kissing her boyfriend in public, it went as far as both siblings using wands and reducing Ginny to tears, something she hardly resorted to.
Ron fired a hex right at Ginny but missed and if Harry had not interfered, Ginny would have retaliated. Ginny had a humourous side and makes many jokes to keep people's spirits up very much like Fred and George; however, her relationship with them was not perfect.
She got angry with them for questioning her on her dating life and while they respected her relationship with Harry, they were not above finding ways to tease them about it. She was heartbroken by the death of her brother Fred during the Battle of Hogwarts.
Harry Potter : Future husband, father of her children, and the love of her life. Simply put, Harry Potter was the love of Ginny's life. At age ten, she only briefly made his acquaintance when he boarded the Hogwarts Express with her brother Ron. She developed a crush on him nonetheless when he visited the Burrow. Her outpouring of emotions enabled Riddle's memory to take control of her. Harry eventually saved her life in the Chamber of Secrets by slaying Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk with Godric Gryffindor's Sword and destroying the diary with one of the serpent's fangs.
Meanwhile, Harry was friendly toward Ginny, but did not return her romantic feelings.
Harry and ginny start dating
When Ginny was in third year Ron suggested that Harry take her to the Yule Ballbut as it turned out she already had a date. Harry, given his purely platonic interest in Ginny at the time, was not upset by this. However, Ginny was "extremely miserable" and left the common room with her head bowed, upset at the knowledge that she could have gone to the ball with her long-time crush. Ginny sought advice from Hermione Grangerwho suggested that she relax in front of Harry, be true to herself, and possibly even date other boys.
Even though she dated other boys, Ginny never completely gave up on the hope that Harry would reciprocate her affections. Ginny would often defend Harry whenever she felt it was needed, such as; in when she stood up to Draco Malfoy and fiercely told him " to leave [Harry] alone ".
She also told off Blaise Zabini in when he insulted Harry and even stood up to Hermione, her close personal friend in defence of his use of the Sectumsempra curse on Malfoy. In she told off her then boyfriend Dean Thomas for laughing at the fact that Harry was injured by Cormac McLaggen during a Quidditch match.
On 11 July, Rita Skeeter remarked that Harry was " publicity-hungry " - just as Ginny was approaching and Rita was taken "unaccountably ill" with what some called " a jinx to the solar plexus ".
She was visibly displeased with the attention Gabrielle Delacour paid him, and spoke up when Harry's ex-girlfriend, Cho Changvolunteered to take Harry to see Rowena Ravenclaw's Diademinsisting that Luna Lovegood take Harry instead. In Ginny's fifth year, Harry started to fall in love with her as well. His feelings had presumably been developing since the previous year.
She had reasserted herself as a vibrant, witty, and independent young woman, rather than an awkward and shy little girl. They had a lot in common - both played Quidditchboth had suffered at the hands of Lord Voldemortand both showed great strength in defensive and offensive magic.
Both have also fought alongside one another on a number of occasions. In the beginning of the year, Harry was slightly disappointed when, after a summer together, he remembered that Ginny did not normally hang around the trio at school.
However, he did not realise the scope of his feelings for her until he and Ron ran into Ginny and Dean kissing. After witnessing them kissing, he frequently hoped that Dean and Ginny would break up. By the end of her fifth year, Ginny and Harry began dating after spontaneously kissing in the aftermath of Gryffindor winning the Quidditch Cup. They broke up shortly thereafter, as Harry realised that if they continued dating openly, Voldemort would seek to use her to get to him, as he had done previously.
He simply could not bring himself to endanger her life while he sought a way to destroy Voldemort. Calling the break up an "act of nobility", Ginny accepted his decision, but always held onto the hope that he would return to her. On Harry's seventeenth birthdayGinny " kissed him as she had never kissed him before ," though they were interrupted by Ron, with Hermione in tow. Ron discouraged Harry from " getting [Ginny's] hopes up ," mentioning that his sister was " really cut up " when Harry attempted to end their relationship.
Hermione, on the other hand, seemed to be more sympathetic toward Harry and Ginny's actions. Harry and Ginny express their love for each other during the Battle of Hogwarts.
While hunting for HorcruxesHarry would stare at her dot on the Marauder's Map for hours, hoping that she could somehow sense that he was watching over her.
At school, Ginny participated in and helped lead an underground rebellion, during which she, Neville, and Luna even attempted to steal Godric Gryffindor's Sword from the Headmaster's office. They had heard that it was left to Harry in Dumbledore's will and guessed that he needed it. When the battle began, Harry wanted Ginny to stay out of the fighting but was forced to ask her to leave the safety of the Room of Requirement when he, Hermione, and Ron searched it for Ravenclaw's Diadem.
As Harry prepared to be killed by Voldemort, he thought of Ginny, " her blazing looks, and the feel of her lips on his. The supposed death of her one love was enough to drive Ginny to attack the incredibly powerful Bellatrix Lestrange alongside Luna, and Hermione.
When the battle was over she was one of the first ones that rushed to hug him. Ginny and Harry rekindled their romance in the aftermath of the Second Wizarding War and were eventually married. Their marriage is shown to be mature and understanding, Harry also affectionately calls Ginny "Gin", rather than her full name. It is also revealed that after the events in the Chamber of Secrets that people shut Ginny out of their lives, but Harry came to her and played a game of Exploding Snap.
Ginny claims that she also felt specific love from Harry since that day and that his love for her always made her feel stronger. The two made Ginny's brother Ron and Hermione Granger the godparents to their eldest son and Neville Longbottom the godfather to their second son.
They also have several nieces and nephews, it can be assumed that Ginny was closest to Ron's and Hermione's children. Despite their affectionate and passionate marriage, Ginny retained her ability to put Harry in his place over his actions and behaviours, such as when she forbade him from entering Albus's room during his disappearance.
Ginny was also unable to look upon her husband when he disguised himself as Voldemort during the events of the Cursed Child. This shows how much she hated Voldemort and how much she loved her husband, to the point where watching him bear the appearance of the man who had stolen so much from both of them was too much for her.
Lily looked like her mother and was jealous of her brothers, who were leaving for Hogwartsexactly as her mother had been in Ginny comforted Albus who physically resembled his father when he was nervous about the possibility of being sorted into Slytherin house, and scolded James for teasing his brother.
After James interrupted his cousin Victoire while she was kissing Teddy LupinGinny noted how similar he was to Ron.
As Ginny had five brothers who survived the Second Wizarding Warfour of whom married at some point, she had quite a few nieces and nephews by Ginny's own children seemed closest to Ron and Hermione 's children, whose son Hugo was the same age as Lily, and their daughter Rose was the same age as Albus.
Bill and Fleur 's children were VictoireDominiqueand Louis ; Percy and his wife, Audreyhad Molly named after her paternal grandmother and Lucy ; George married Angelina Johnson and named their son Fred after George's late twin brotherwhile their daughter was called Roxanne.
When Ginny's son, James, discovered Victoire kissing Teddy Lupin at King's Cross Stationhe proceeded to interrupt them and then run back to his family to triumphantly announce what he'd seen, prompting Ginny to compare him to his Uncle Ron. Hermione Grangera good friend and future sister-in-law. Hermione Granger was one of Ginny's best female friends and her confidante. Ginny was a year below Hermione in Hogwartsand they had become close by Ginny's second year; Hermione comforted Ginny that year when the presence of Dementors upset her Ginny was more affected than most others due to her possession by Voldemort the previous year.
Hermione stayed in Ginny's room during her frequent visits to the Burrow during summer vacations. Hermione gave Ginny advice on how to deal with her feelings for Harry  - advice that would lead to her going out with him and their eventual marriage. In the summer ofwhen Hermione was staying at the Burrow, Ginny and Hermione openly disliked Fleur Delacour and criticised her together.
Ginny appeared to be disgusted with her brother Ron WeasleyHermione's love interest, when, after a fight with Ginny, Ron began dating Lavender Brown.
However, Ginny was not afraid to stand up to Hermione when she felt she was wrong, for example when Hermione scolded Harry Potter for using the Sectumsempra spell. The two became sisters-in-law upon Hermione's marriage to Ron, and Hermione is the godmother of Ginny's oldest child. Fleur Delacourher sister-in-law. She found Fleur humourless and irritating, as she was given to complaining loudly about what she perceived as Hogwarts' many faults. Fleur often compared the school unfavourably to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic.
Ginny teased Ron for his schoolboy crush on her. She also disapproved of Fleur's engagement to her eldest brother Billwhom Ginny looked up too.
Much to Ginny's displeasure, Bill sent Fleur to live with the Weasley family for a few days. During that time Ginny took to mockingly referring to Fleur as " Phlegm, " and complained about Fleur's tendency to patronise her. However, when Bill became permanently disfigured by Fenrir Greyback and Fleur indignantly defended her husband's bravery, Ginny began to recognise Fleur's admirable qualities.
The two eventually got along well, and Ginny even became a bridesmaid for her wedding. Neville Longbottoma good friend. Neville asked Ginny to the Yule Ball after he was turned down by Hermione, who had already agreed to go with Viktor Krumand the two attended together as friends. When Ron suggested that she go to the ball with Harry, who had yet to find a date, she was disappointed at having missed a chance to go with him, but remained faithful to her agreement with Neville.
Ginny was among the friends who likely contributed to Neville gradually gaining confidence and courage, and, along with Luna Lovegood, the two of them maintained the strongest support of Dumbledore's Army throughout the Second Wizarding War. Luna Lovegoo a close friend. Ginny was friendly with Luna Lovegood, a Ravenclaw student in her year, although the two did not grow close until they were both members of Dumbledore's Army in their fourth year.
Ginny referred to Luna as " Loony Lovegood " just before introducing her to Harry and Neville inbut soon stood up to those who ridiculed Luna. Ginny was also one of the five portraits - along with Harry, Ron, Hermioneand Neville - that Luna painted and hung from her bedroom ceiling, with the message " friends " joining them together in gold writing. Ginny later gave her daughter Lily the middle name "Luna", implying that the two remained very close well into adulthood. Nymphadora Tonksher friend.
Ginny met Nymphadora Tonks in the summer of through the Order of the Phoenixand she and Hermione immediately struck up a friendship with the young Auror. Ginny appreciated that Tonks, although an adult, was interested in having fun. She taught Ginny how to check if a door had an Imperturbable Charm on it by flicking Dungbombs at it. She also entertained Ginny and Hermione by displaying her Metamorphmagus abilities, usually at the dinner table.
InGinny hoped her brother, Bill, would choose Tonks over Fleur Delacour - an idea Ron seemed to find laughable. After Tonks was murdered by her own aunt Bellatrix Lestrange during the Battle of HogwartsGinny duelled Bellatrix, along with Hermione and Luna, although it is unknown if Ginny knew that it was Bellatrix who had murdered Tonks.
Sirius Blackher friend and husband's godfather. Though Ginny first learned of Sirius in as an Azkaban escapee convicted of killing 12 muggles, she was soon made aware of his innocence through her connections to the Order of the Phoenix and his godson, Harry.
Why Ginny and Harry ended up Together - Harry Potter Fan Theory
She and Sirius grew closer during their mutual time spent at the Order's headquartersand she later told Harry that she cared about Sirius as much as he did, insisting on accompanying Harry to the Ministry of Magicwhere they believed Sirius was being held and tortured by Voldemort. When Sirius and four other members of the Order arrived at the Ministry to rescue Ginny and her friends, who had walked into a trap and been attacked by Death EatersSirius was murdered by his cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange.
Harry and Ginny were both horribly saddened by Sirius's death, and later duelled Bellatrix in the Great Hall during the Battle of Hogwarts. Ginny married Sirius's godson later and she and Harry gave their eldest son James the middle name "Sirius" in honour of him. Dumbledore's Armyher friends and allies. Dumbledore's Army was an organisation founded by Harry Potter, Hermione Grangerand Ron Weasley inand led and taught by Harry Potter to oppose Dolores Umbridgeas well as offer students a place to learn and practise defensive magic.
Ginny was one of the first to join, and the one who came up with calling the organisation " Dumbledore's Army, " based on Cornelius Fudge 's paranoid fears of Dumbledore mobilising Hogwarts students in a coup against the Ministry. She was also partially responsible for bringing several of its Ravenclaw members into the fold, as her then-boyfriend Michael Corner brought his friends Terry Boot and Anthony Goldstein with him to the first meeting.
Ginny was on good terms with most of the D. Ginny convinced her then boyfriend, Michael Cornerand his friends to join, and the DA may have been where Ginny first became friendly with Dean Thomaswho she would date the next year. Ginny, along with Neville and Luna, co-led the DA in opposition to Alecto and Amycus Carrowduring the - school yearwriting slogans on walls and at one point attempting to steal the Sword of Gryffindor from Headmaster Snape's office.
Cho Changher husband 's ex-girlfriend. Ginny always held an amount of jealousy toward Cho, as Cho was Harry 's first crush, girlfriend, and shared with Harry his first kiss. Despite this however, Ginny was considerate enough of her that after Harry and Cho had broken up, she eventually advised Harry that things could be mended between them if he reached out to Cho but then was interrupted by Harry clarifying that he actually wished to talk to his godfather Sirius, making this advice null and void.
When Cho offered to take Harry to the Ravenclaw common room so he could see the statue of Rowena Ravenclaw and her diadem briefly before the Battle of Hogwarts, Ginny cut across her and said that Luna would take Harry to the common room instead, implying that she still felt somewhat threatened by Cho and her still present crush on Harry. Dean Thomasher ex-boyfriend. Ginny started dating Dean Thomas at the end of her fourth year. Ginny's enthusiasm about the relationship seemed to ebb by Christmas ofas she did not seem terribly eager to see Dean upon her return to Hogwarts.
The couple also began to row over little things, like Dean's constant attempts to help Ginny through the portrait hole into the Gryffindor common room, and they fought after Dean and Seamus laughed when Harry suffered a fractured skull courtesy of Cormac McLaggen. Harry, under the influence of Felix Felicisactually ignited the minor argument that led to their breakup when he accidentally brushed past Ginny climbing through the portrait hole; as Harry was wearing his invisibility cloakGinny thought Dean was once again attempting to help her, and snapped at him.
Ginny clearly got over Dean soon after they broke up, as she began dating Harry soon after and admitted to him that she had never really given up on Harry. Dean took the break up much harder; he broke the glass he was holding upon witnessing Ginny and Harry's first kiss. Michael Cornerher ex-boyfriend. Ginny and Michael Corner met at the Yule Ball inand began dating at the end of the school year, she used the relationship as an attempt to "move on" from Harry Potter.
Inshe brought him and some of his friends along to the first meeting of what would become Dumbledore's Army. When the two duelled during meetings, Michael did not hit Ginny with anything, possibly because she was his girlfriend. When Michael drew unnecessary attention to the D. Ginny ended the relationship on the basis of Michael being a " bad loser ," following Michael's poor reaction to Gryffindor beating Ravenclaw in a Quidditch match. Lupin comforted Ginny after her first encounter with Dementors by giving her a piece of chocolate, and she likely believed, along with many other Hogwarts students, that he made an excellent teacher.
Ginny and Remus met again inat 12 Grimmauld Place, and several times after that, as Remus was a member of the Order of the Phoenix and good friends with Ginny's parents. Ginny was thrilled when he married Nymphadora Tonksand remained close with their son, Teddywell after Tonks and Remus were murdered during the Battle of Hogwarts.
Ginny first met Rubeus Hagri the Hogwarts gamekeeper induring her first year at Hogwarts. Ginny seemed to be friendly with Hagrid, as they were both friends of HarryRonand Hermione. At one point, Hagrid told Harry that he saw Ginny near his hut ; he supposed that Ginny hoped to see Harry, and teased Harry for it. Albus Dumbledoreher former headmaster. Ginny, like many people, thought Albus Dumbledore was the greatest wizard of all time.
Ginny met Dumbledore induring her first year at Hogwarts, where Dumbledore was Headmaster. Dumbledore comforted and reassured Ginny after she was possessed by a fragment of Voldemort 's soul and manipulated into opening the Chamber of Secrets during the - school year. Ginny was one of the first people to learn about Dumbledore's death, and the only one able to console Harry afterwards.
Ginny and Harry named her younger son after Dumbledore. It is obvious that McGonagall could have been fond of Ginny since she was a talented witch and did not condone or tolerate bullying, something that McGonagall most likely valued. Like nearly everyone else at Hogwarts, Ginny despised professor Dolores Umbridge, the ministry -appointed Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor for the - school year.
Ginny had an immensely strong spirit across the Harry Potter books, so strong in fact that Harry Potter himself began to notice after a while. But Ginny, accomplished Quidditch player and determined Gryffindor, was always far more than Harry's girlfriend. And the very macabre chapter in which Harry breaks up with her is the one where we love. The Trouble with Secrets. Is That They Eventually Come Out. Author's Note: When this idea came to me I realized it was completely alternate universe to some extent. When the story begins it is the end of June and Harry is 20 years old. The only changes from the book is that Harry and Ginny never dated at school.
Umbridge was a horrible sadistic witch who enjoyed torturing students for punishment with the use of a Blood Quilland attempted to take firm control of the school by passing a series of Educational Decrees. Ginny became a member of Dumbledore's Army in order to oppose her, as well to learn the practical defensive magic Umbridge refused to teach in class.
During the school yearGinny, along with Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood, re-formed and co-led Dumbledore's Army in rebellion against then Headmaster Severus Snape and Alecto and Amycus Carrowtwo Death Eaters who had been appointed professors at Hogwarts and enjoyed punishing students with the use of the Cruciatus Curse.
Ginny showed particular dislike for the Potions master, Severus Snape as he was a cruel and very unpopular teacher. Aside from his creepy demeanour and snide attitude toward everyone, he had always favoured Slytherins because they were in his house and her particular dislike for Snape was something she shared with her brothers and friends.
She also knew that he was part of the Order of the Phoenix and when she learnt that Snape killed Dumbledore, she thought he had betrayed the Order. She was also, obviously, not happy about his tenure as Headmaster when Hogwarts fell under Lord Voldemort 's control. However, near the end of the Battle of Hogwartsshe learnt from Harry that he was on their side all along. It is unknown how she acted to the revelation of Snape's true loyalties. She did allow her second son to have his middle name from Severus.
When Arthur Weasley got into a fistfight with Lucius Malfoy in Flourish and Blotts prior to the start of Ginny's first year, Malfoy used the opportunity to slip Tom Riddle's diary into the pile of books Ginny was carrying. Though Malfoy most likely believed the diary was simply enchanted to open the Chamber of Secretsit was actually one of Voldemort's Horcruxesand in fact, contained a fragment of the Dark Lord's soul. Tom Riddle's soul communicated with Ginny through his diary, sympathising with her problems and giving her advice, which made her emotionally vulnerable to Riddle's influence.
Eventually, Riddle was able to possess Ginny, use her to open the Chamber of Secretsand free Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk to petrify several Muggle-born students including Hermione Granger.
Ginny eventually figured out what she had been doing, despite having no memory of what happened during the times she was possessed, after finding herself covered in feathers and rooster blood. She attempted to flush the diary down a toilet, but being a Horcrux, it remained undamaged and later ended up in the hands of Harry Potter.
Ginny, worried the diary would reveal to Harry things she'd written about her feelings for himstole the diary back. Riddle possessed Ginny one last time and had her enter the Chamber of Secrets, with every intention of killing her and using her life to restore his own. Harry, however, as a Parselmouthwas able to enter the Chamber, rescue Ginny, and slay the Basilisk with the Sword of Gryffindor.
He then used one of the Basilisk's fangs to stab the diary, effectively making it the first of Voldemort's Horcruxes to be destroyed. Upon speaking with Dumbledore about the diary's remains, Ginny and her family came to learn that Tom Riddle is the original name of Lord Voldemort, much to Ginny's horror.
According to herself in later years, Ginny would never forget these experiences and comforted Harry when he thought he was suffering a similar experience.
Upon time travelling to the night of her parents-in-law's murder, Ginny was horrified by her husband's transfiguration into an exact duplicate of Voldemort, showing that she still despised him passionately. In her words, she couldn't stand to see the man she loved in the face of the man she hated. Ginevra is the Italian form of the name Guineverewhich means "fair one".
Guinevere is also the name of King Arthur's wife in Arthurian legend, famous for her affair with Arthur's chief knight Sir Lancelot. There seems to be a pattern in the Weasley family of naming members after characters in Arthurian legend.
Another famous muse bearing this name was Ginevra Kinga socialite who inspired F. The name Ginevra is also an Italian variant of Juniperderived from the tree or berry. Junipers were often used to represent chastity in Renaissance-period art, such as in Leonardo da Vinci's Ginevra de' Benci.
In some cultures, Ginevra can mean "white shadow, or white wave". Ginny's married name is Pottera very common surname of English origin. Beatrix Potter was a well-known English children's author. Potter's Field is the name for a burial ground for the unknown or unclaimed dead, particularly soldiers and orphans; the Potter family had many members that fit that description.
The Potter Box is a model for making ethical decisions developed at Harvard University. Rowling has also commented that she has liked the name since childhood, as a family that had lived near her carried this surname. Ginny Weasley as depicted on Pottermore.

Eventually, Ginny left the team to raise their three children - James, Albus, and Lily - while writing as the senior Quidditch correspondent for the wizarding newspaper, the Daily Prophet.

They're both very strong and very passionate. That's their connection, and they're remarkable together. Rowling expands on Harry and Ginny's romance [src].
Not really. I always hoped Hermione told me to get on with life, maybe go out with some other people, relax a bit around you, because I never used to be able to talk if you were in the room, remember? And she thought you might take a bit more notice if I was a bit more - myself.

Thus, any children she had would be their second cousins, and second cousins once removed of their sons Sirius and Regulus. Also, almost all of Sirius's relatives can be seen on the Black family tree as both his parents were born into the House of Black, making it unlikely that he could be related to Arthur in a way not shown.

Harry managed to defeat Lord Voldemort when he was a one-year-old baby, but most kids are obsessed with actors, rock stars, or dashing fictional characters.
Bear in mind that Ginny becomes obsessed with Harry before she saves him from the Basilisk. Her obsessive crush is over an eleven-year-old she met in a train station one time, who had yet to do anything really great. Still not sounding healthy.
Okay, yes, this could be said of literally every relationship that ever happened. 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. This leads me perfectly to my next point.
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. This is what I personally hate about their relationship.
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. I hate to bring it up, but it just seems so true. 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? Ginny is part of the books for one simple reason; to be a love interest for the main character. The main frustration comes from her not having any flaws.
