Harry and Ginny are one of Harry Potter's power couples. Here are all the weird things that fans missed about their relationship. Unfortunately for Ginny, Harry ends their relationship to protect her from Voldemort at the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. They continue to love. Yes, yes, yes! I want to start by saying that even though I'm a Harry/Hermione shipper, a Harry/Ginny relationship isn't wholly unbelievable to me. It's a pairing.
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.
Harry Potter: 20 Things Harry And Ginny Did Between Deathly Hallows And Cursed Child
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?Harry Potter - Harry & Ginny - First Love.
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. Almost all canonical couples meet at Hogwarts when they were children, then get married after leaving school. This is not a realistic portrayal of relationships!
Harry and Ginny were nineteen and eighteen presumably. They missed out on traveling alone, making mistakes and figuring out who they really are and what they want by themselves. Think back to who you were when you were seventeen. Are you still that person now? Harry and Ginny, ten or twenty years into their marriage, will be completely different people than they were when they first married.
However, over the coming days and school year, she becomes her normal self, and seems able to converse normally with Harry still.
Why Harry Picked Ginny, Rather Than Hermione, As A Romantic Partner
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 ArmyHermione 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 Balland 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 Cloakhe accidentally knocks into Ginny in such a way that she thinks Dean deliberately shoved her; luckily as is always the case with Felix Felicisthis 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.
On his way to meet Voldemort and his doom, Harry does pass Ginny and believes that she senses him despite his being hidden under his Invisibility Cloak.
Ginny's scream of grief is afterwards the loudest of the shocked and distraught voices when she and the others see the seemingly dead body of Harry being carried in Hagrid's arms. When Harry has defeated Voldemort, she is one of the first people to reach him to celebrate his victory.
After the celebrations have ended we see that she is leaning, exhausted, on her mother. Harry, evidently equally tired, does not want to bother her just yet, and thinks to himself that they will have "hours and days and maybe years in which to talk".

Notable Consequences[ edit ] Ginny's announcement that she is going to the Yule Ball with Neville, when Ron suggests that she could go with Harry, causes a bit of a crisis for Harry; Harry must find someone to go to the Yule Ball with, as he is required to lead off the dancing, and his first choice, Cho Chang, has just turned him down.
Ron, having been turned down both by his first choice Fleur Delacour and his second Hermioneis equally in trouble. In desperation, Harry asks Parvati Patilwho accepts, and who suggests her sister Padma as a date for Ron. At the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry realizes that anyone he becomes close to is likely to become Voldemort's target. To protect Ginny, he reluctantly ends their relationship. While Ginny understands and accepts his reasoning, she seems to feel that there may be better ways to approach this problem.
In the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, we see that with Ginny, Harry has finally found what he has wanted all his life: Analysis[ edit ] We see that Ginny has set her heart on Harry; Ginny is apparently trying hard to get Harry interested in her as early as the second book in the series. Due to her and Harry's immaturity at that time, however, her initial attempt is doomed.
Harry is not ready to welcome romantic entanglement from any quarter at this point. At twelve years old, Harry shares the young male disinterest in relationships, and at eleven years old, Ginny does not yet know how to ease into a relationship in a more mature way. By the time Harry is ready to consider a relationship, Ginny is already involved with someone else. Ginny's attachment to both Michael Corner and Dean Thomas, however, seems rather less than it might be. Her attachment to Michael is slight enough that his being sulky after Ginny had won the Quidditch match from Ravenclaw was enough to end their relationship.
The sulking does imply a certain lack of commitment on his part; one would have expected him to be happy in his girlfriend's victory, rather than sullen in his house's defeat. Perhaps it was because of that lack of attachment that Ginny dumped him. Dean was dumped because of his habit of helping her over and through obstacles that she didn't need help with, triggered by one final, accidental shove by Harry from under the Invisibility Cloak.
