I'm curious, how do you think Harry/Ginny was foreshadowed? I always thought it came out of left field.

OKAY LET’S DO THIS

  • The attention given to Ginny’s crush on Harry.  In the second book, her crush served the purpose (among other purposes) of making Ginny even more susceptible to Riddle’s diary.  But after that, it served no apparent purpose at all, and yet JKR made it a point to call attention to it at least once in every single book.  (I’ve seen it argued that its purpose after CoS was to provide comic relief, but the problem with that argument is that her crush wasn’t always presented in a comical way, i.e., her sadness when she learned Harry wanted to ask Cho to the Yule Ball.)  After Chamber of Secrets, there was no reason for JKR to keep reminding the reader of Ginny’s crush the way she did unless something was eventually going to come of it.  (As a side note, Ginny’s crush on Harry also served the purpose of keeping Harry from really getting to know Ginny before JKR was ready for him to do so, since her crush made her cripplingly shy around him.)
  • The attention given to Ginny’s love life in general.  Because really, her love life is given an inordinate amount of attention for a secondary character.  At every point in the series, JKR made sure we knew exactly what the status of it was.  We were told (repeatedly) that Ginny had an unrequited crush on Harry.  We were told who her date to the Yule Ball was going to be, and we were even given a glimpse of them at the Ball itself, despite the fact that there were approximately 1 bajillion other things for Harry to notice that night.  We were told when Ginny had given up on Harry.  We were told about her first boyfriend, and we were told when they broke up and why.  We were told about her second boyfriend, about every fight, every tiff they had, and we were told when they finally broke up and why.  Again, that is a lot of attention to be given to the love life of a secondary character.  Indeed, throughout the series, we’re given more detail about Ginny’s love life than we are Hermione’s.  And the only reason there would be to give so much attention to the love life of someone who wasn’t even a main character was because it was going to become important to Harry’s storyline later on.  The only other non-Trio character whose love life is given similar attention is Cho Chang — the other character in the series whose love life was at one point important to Harry.
  • The consistently positive and/or vivid descriptions Harry gives of Ginny’s appearance, even early in the series.  When she blushes, he describes it as “her face glowing like the setting sun.”  Her eyes aren’t just brown, they’re “bright brown.”  She has a “long mane of bright red hair,” and at one point that long mane of bright red hair even “danced behind her.”  She doesn’t just sit in a chair, she “sits curled up like a cat, her eyes reflecting the firelight.”  Granted, some of these descriptions might not sound particularly special taken by themselves, but they certainly are when you compare them with the way Harry typically describes the appearance of most other characters.  If you pay attention, you can tell when Harry is describing a girl he finds attractive, and it’s pretty clear, especially in retrospect, that he found Ginny Weasley attractive.
  • Harry is observant and considerate of Ginny from the very beginning.  On his first trip to Hogwarts, he watches her laughing and running after the Hogwarts Express — and he keeps watching her until she’s out of sight.  Later, at the Burrow, he notices when she puts her elbow in the butter dish, even though no one else does, and he doesn’t call it to anyone’s attention so as not to embarrass her.  He gives her all of his Lockhart books.  He notices later in the year that she looks pale and upset, and that she’s distressed by the attack on Colin Creevey.  He observes that her well-meaning brothers are not exactly going about cheering her up in the right way.  He does his best to soothe her when she wakes up in the Chamber.  He’s later desperately anxious to tell the story in a way that doesn’t make her look guilty in any way, and he feels “sweeping, glorious relief” when he learns she won’t be expelled or otherwise punished for the Chamber incident.  And that’s just in the first two books.  As you can see, the all too frequent claim that “Harry never cared about Ginny or even knew she existed until HBP” is patently untrue.
  • From OotP:  "Did you see the look on Chang’s face when Ginny got the Snitch right out from under her nose?" said Ron.  Just for the record, I love Cho and have always felt a lot of sympathy for her.  But after OotP came out, a lot of people (including me) saw this as a bit of Harry/Ginny foreshadowing.
  • Also from OotP:  "Well, I always thought [Michael Corner] was a bit of an idiot,” [Ron] said, prodding his queen forwards towards Harry’s quivering castle. “Good for you. Just choose someone—better—next time.”  He cast Harry an oddly furtive look as he said it.

Ginny Weasley 30 day Character Challenge: Day 23

Do you think she has any fears or phobias?

In general, Ginny is pretty fearless and takes pride in that fact, as a girl raised among an army of boys. But I think there is definitely a canon basis to say that Ginny has an unusual fear of magical objects, or in her father’s words “things that think for themselves”, especially “if you cannot see where it keep it’s brains”. It is that fear that Harry so touchingly assuaged in regards to the potions book in HBP. I believe Ginny would always have a distrust for such objects, which she would make sure to instill in her children. 

 Also as a result of her chamber experiences, i believe Ginny takes care never to lose control of her mental faculties. My headcanon is that, although she drinks, Ginny has never gotten drunk, because she would never abide the loss of control that entails.
