Day 11: Favorite horse? Pretty much all of them
I find that it’s easier to keep your true self buried under several layers of untrue selves, to protect yourself.
alternate ending to the third hobbit movie
thranduil walks around the battlefield and spies the dead bodies of fili and kili
and then he kneels down and touches them gently with one finger and they come back to life
and everyone lives happily ever after
thranduil is secretly ned the piemaker
Girl was confident enough to send Harry a Valentine in front of the entire school when she was eleven years old. Let me tell you from now that I was weeing myself at the prospect of even looking my crush in the eye at that age. She’s ballsy as fuck.
We also see her standing up to Draco in Flourish and Blotts, so her being confident and assertive isn’t actually new. Her mother had to tell her to be quiet at the train station in the first book, and Ron constantly reminds us that it’s so weird to see Ginny acting shy in front of Harry because it literally never happens.
Her being possessed by the darkest wizard of all time, the same guy whose name still can’t be spoken by the majority of the wizarding world because his name strikes actual fear into people’s hearts at the mere mention of him, when she was eleven whilst simultaneously harbouring a crush over a boy is not an indication of her true personality, its indicating that she’s fucking possessed and not in her right mind, and that she’s going through the same stages that every person who has ever had a crush in their life goes through at one point.
Ginny’s always been true to herself and has always been the same girl throughout the series. If we do not get to see Ginny getting over her traumatic experiences and acting like herself again it is because Harry glosses over that while focusing on his own adventures all the time. Harry forgot that she went through that shit even though Ginny clearly doesn’t forget, and she quickly cuts that short with her lucky you~ comment. Harry’s unfortunate lack of observatory skills to pretty much everything in his immediate surroundings all the time is evident in the books (I mean, McLaggen anyone? This is a guy who is in Harry’s own house and we literally never hear of him until HBP, despite him having a very aggressive and over-assertive personality and a huge fucking temper to boot, so he’s not exactly someone who is overlooked easily, or at all). Despite this, and despite Ginny’s secondary character status, we still get to see and taste Ginny’s personality in the scenes that she is present in. xxxx
And what do people classify as being girly girl-ish or tomboy-ish anyways? Ginny was always a mixture of both. She can get tough and gritty esp on the Quidditch field and in battle, but she can also be soft and giggly as well. She coos at animals and comments on their cuteness and owns a purple pygmy puff and makes Valentines and Get-Well cards for her crush and makes homemade creative paper decorations for Christmas and wears dresses and giggles at things and loves animals, shes always seen playing with Arnold and Pigwidgeon and Crookshanks. I dislike when people try to pigeonhole Ginny into one role or reduce her character by simplifying her into something she’s not. Ginny is well-rounded and likes an assortment of things, furthermore she has her own friends apart from the Trio and her own hobbies and opinions, she has always been autonomous despite having boyfriends every year.
tl;dr Ginny is a free bitch get on her level

"If I could, you know, team up with Anna Friel and Chi McBride again..and Kristin Chenoweth, it would just be a very special experience. I miss the show." (x)
