The theme of this week’s Harry Potter Moment of the Week is ‘favourite Ginny moment’
While I love Ginny’s fierceness, her determination and her generally kick-ass nature, one of my favourite Ginny moments is actually nothing to do with any of those qualities. It’s a funny, companionable moment with Harry, Ron & Hermione (perhaps even more surprising considering I’m not a hugeHarry/Ginny fan. It does come from my favourite Harry Potter book so maybe that helps a little!
“You’d think people had better things to gossip about,” said Ginny as she sat on the common room floor, leaning against Harry’s legs and reading the Daily Prophet. “Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it’s true you’ve got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest.”
Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them.
What did you tell her?”
I told her it’s a Hungarian Horntail,” said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. “Much more macho.”
Thanks,” said Harry, grinning. “And what did you tell her Ron’s got?”
A Pygmy Puff, but I didn’t say where.”
