The latter convinced Harry to check to see if Sirius was at 12 Grimmauld Place before rushing off to rescue him, and Ginny and Luna came to their assistance. With Harry and Hermione breaking into Umbridge's office, and Ron distracting her with news that Peeves was wreaking havoc, Ginny and Luna stopped people from entering the corridor leading to the office by saying that someone had flooded it with Garrotting Gas.
Unfortunately for them, Umbridge saw through their ruse since she knew of Peeves's true location and ordered the Inquisitorial Squad to round them up. Ginny was captured by Cassius Warrington , and when Neville saw what was happening and tried to help, he was caught as well. When Umbridge threatened to use the Cruciatus Curse on Harry to make him tell her what he was doing, Hermione faked a breakdown and told a lie about a weapon that Albus Dumbledore had told them to make.
We Need Volunteers!
They managed to break free using skills that they had acquired in their D. They then regrouped with Harry and Hermione, who had left Umbridge with a group of enraged centaurs. Convinced that Sirius was in mortal danger, Harry resolved to travel to London and rescue him. Although Harry tried to prevent Ginny, Neville, and Luna from accompanying him, Ron and Hermione eventually persuaded otherwise. After flying Thestrals to London, they entered the Ministry of Magic using the visitor's entrance and headed for the Department of Mysteries. In the Hall of Prophecy, they found no sign of Sirius, but Ron did find a prophecy concerning Harry and Voldemort, but pertaining only to Harry.
As Harry removed it from the shelf, the group was surrounded by Death Eaters led by Lucius Malfoy and learned that Voldemort had used the connection between himself and Harry to lure him there to remove the prophecy. Ginny was sadistically threatened with torture by Bellatrix Lestrange , who wanted to use the Cruciatus Curse on her to force Harry to hand over the prophecy, thus hoping to avoid the inevitable fight that would breakout.
At Harry's signal, all six D. Ginny, along with Luna and Ron, were separated from the other three and were chased through various rooms by Death Eaters. In one room containing a three-dimensional representation of the solar system, one of the Death Eaters grabbed Ginny by the ankle. Luna used the Reductor Curse on a model of Pluto, causing it to explode in the Death Eater's face, but Ginny's ankle was broken in the process. Luna managed to get Ginny and Ron who was also disabled to safety, but Ginny's broken ankle immobilised her and restricted her ability to help in the battle.
She grew distraught when Ron came under attack by the brains, and was knocked unconscious by a Stunning Spell. Luckily, the Death Eaters were focused on the prophecy and Harry was able to lead them away from Ginny and the other vulnerable students. Ginny regained consciousness by the time Harry was pursuing Bellatrix Lestrange , but he ignored her questions and raced past her. Following the battle, Ginny recovered in the hospital wing at Hogwarts where Madam Pomfrey fixed her ankle in a trice.
On the train ride back to London, Ginny revealed that she had ditched Michael, who had moved on to Cho Chang while she Ginny had moved on to Dean Thomas , much to Ron's horror. With the summer holidays coming to a close Ginny, the trio, and some of the other Weasleys took a trip to Diagon Alley needed to purchase school supplies.

Ginny feared detention, but Slughorn was so impressed with the hex that he invited her to take lunch with him as part of a select group of students he hoped to cultivate and induct into his Slug Club. Ginny scoring a goal, while playing as a Chaser against Slytherin. As term started, Ginny tried out for the Gryffindor Quidditch team , of which Harry had been made the Captain.
She excelled as a Chaser and was given a spot on the roster. Following one Quidditch practise, she and Dean were caught kissing by Harry and Ron. She and Ron had a blazing argument over her kissing Dean in public, but Ginny countered that Ron only saw it as being wrong because he had never kissed anyone before. The argument led to a frosty relationship between the two siblings which lasted for quite some time.
During the first Quidditch match of the season against Slytherin , Ginny scored several goals to help the team to victory. Following the match, she purposely crashed her broomstick into the commentary box because the commentator, Zacharias Smith, had been making disparaging remarks about the Gryffindor team. Her feud with Ron over his attitude towards her and Dean was worsened when, in the aftermath of the victory, he began going out with Lavender Brown , who he often snogged in public.
Ginny branded her brother a " filthy hypocrite " for his actions  , but more less seemed to be over the row they previously shared. She spent Christmas at the Burrow with her family and Harry, and when Ginny returned to Hogwarts, she seemed unenthusiastic about meeting up with Dean. After Ron was accidentally poisoned on his birthday, Ginny visited him in the hospital wing, and they seemingly forgave each other.
She and Harry discussed what had happened to Ron endlessly, trying to come up with an explanation for what had happened. During the match, McLaggen took one of the Beater's bats and pelted a bludger directly at Harry. Harry was knocked unconscious and suffered a fractured skull. Dean, who had been playing as reserve Chaser in place of Katie Bell , laughed about the incident, causing him and Ginny to have a row. Ginny subsequently visited Harry in the hospital wing.
Ginny and Dean were going through a rocky patch, and in April they finally split up when she accused Dean of always trying to help her through the portrait door into the Gryffindor common room. In reality, Harry had been wearing his Invisibility Cloak and bumped into her while under the influence of Felix Felicis , but the incident finally brought an end to their already unstable relationship. Despite the break-up — or because of it — Ginny was still her usually bubbly self and hung around with Harry and Ron more because of Quidditch training.
She also defended Harry's use of the Sectumsempra curse against Draco Malfoy , even if it had earned him a detention that forced him to miss the last Quidditch match of the year. With Harry in detention, Ginny took the role of Seeker for the Gryffindor team for the final match against Ravenclaw. They won the match and the Quidditch cup, and, during the post-match celebrations, Ginny and Harry spontaneously kissed.
Ginny who had never really given up on Harry, was over the moon, as was he, as he had been harbouring feelings for her all year. Ginny and Harry started dating, although their time together was limited due to Harry's weekly detentions and Ginny's O. Harry, who had suspected that Draco was a Death Eater for quite a while, forewarned Ron and Hermione to be vigilant and gave them the remains of his Felix Felicis potion. On Harry's orders Ginny joined Ron and Hermione in taking the potion, giving them extra luck in case they needed it.
Along with Ron and Neville who had answered the D. Later that night Harry was soon proven right. Ginny comforting Harry after the death of Albus Dumbledore. Fighting their way clear of the darkness, they met up with Remus Lupin and other members of the Order of the Phoenix that were patrolling the school under orders from Dumbledore. In the aftermath, Ginny was shocked to find that her brother Bill had been badly injured and permanently scarred by Fenrir Greyback. She was able to lead Harry away from Dumbledore's corpse and up to the hospital wing, where Harry broke the news that Dumbledore had been killed by Severus Snape.
She seemed to accept Bill and Fleur's relationship after witnessing the love between them. Ginny took her O. She attended Dumbledore's funeral, along with several others. At the funeral she sat next to Harry, Hermione, and Ron, instead of sitting with the rest of her family. After the former headmaster had been laid to rest, Harry broke up with Ginny. He feared that if Voldemort knew how he felt about her, she would become a target and he could not knowingly endanger her life. Despite saying that she knew the risks involved in being with Harry and that she didn't care.
She accepted his decision, after he told her he would not be able to bare it if she died and it was his fault. She called his decision an act of stupid nobility. After the death of Dumbledore, and the knowledge that the protective charm over Harry was due to end soon, as he would be turning 17 and legally an adult, The Order of the Phoenix arranged to move him from the Dursleys ' home to the Burrow on 27 July, via a plan that turned out to be highly dangerous. While most of her family went off to assist in the operation, which turned into a battle, Ginny stayed behind with her mother.
As the team started to miss their Portkeys , Ginny started to worry for their safety and was only partially relieved to see Harry turn up at the Burrow. She then explained that situation to Harry, stating that the other two-man teams were running late and that was why her mother was so worried.
While waiting for the others to arrive she and Harry held hands, as a form of comfort and watching the sky silently. When George turned up with his ear cursed off, Ginny was shocked and helped her mother tend to him. Nothing could be done about George's missing ear, as it was cursed off by dark magic. Finally, as each member of her family returned, she allowed herself to relaxed, but the unexpected death of "Mad-Eye" Moody greatly sobered the occasion. Over the next few days, Ginny interacted little with Harry because of their split, despite her feelings towards him.
However, while setting the table for dinner Harry let slip that he, Ron, and Hermione were about to set off on a quest to stop Voldemort. This caused Ginny to go pale and comment that she suspected that the trio's plans were something of the manner, considering Harry's drive to defeat Voldemort.
Harry then tried to convince Ginny that he had spoken in haste and was just kidding, she did not believe it. On Harry's seventeenth birthday , Ginny confessed that she did not know what to give Harry since anything she gave him would have to be small enough for him to carry around with him. Instead, she " kissed him like she never had before " in the hopes of giving him something to remember her by.
She did this in case he meet someone else on his travels, something he assured her would be unlikely to happen. Ginny felt comforted by this and viewed it as the silver lining she had been looking for. However, they were interrupted by a disapproving Ron , with Hermione in tow. Ginny talking to Ron at Bill and Fleur's wedding. When Gabrielle batted her eyelashes at Harry, Ginny coughed loudly to indicate her annoyance.
She wore a golden dress and as the ceremony began, her Auntie Muriel remarked in a carrying whisper that her dress was far too low cut. Ginny responded to this by turning around and winking at Harry. During the reception, she danced with Luna Lovegood , Lee Jordan , and others. Harry disguised as a member of the Weasley family jealously warned Viktor Krum off of speaking with her, when he remarked on Ginny's attractiveness. He warned him that she had a big and jealous boyfriend.
In the middle of the celebration, the guests were warned by Kingsley Shacklebolt 's Patronus that the Ministry of Magic had fallen, that Rufus Scrimgeour was dead, and that the Death Eaters were coming. As the Death Eaters stormed the wedding, Hermione apparated herself, Harry, and Ron away from the chaos to begin their Horcrux quest. Ginny was seen defending herself against a Death Eater and was unable to say goodbye to Harry and the two did not see each other again for almost a year.
The Weasley family was questioned, but none of them were harmed. As part of the new Ministry's regime, Hogwarts attendance became mandatory and Muggle-borns were being rounded up. They openly defied authority and snuck out at night painting graffiti on the walls of the corridors — " Dumbledore's Army, still recruiting". On one occasion, they attempted to steal Godric Gryffindor's Sword from Snape's office because they had knowledge that Harry needed it, but were caught and punished.

Ginny served detention with Hagrid in the Forbidden Forest and was banned from all trips to Hogsmeade. Ginny and Neville were left to lead the D. Acting on a promise to Ginny, Neville sent word to her that Harry was at the school. Ginny arrived with her brothers, Lee Jordan , and Cho Chang. They arrived on the understanding that a battle was about to be fought. Cho's eagerness to escort Harry to Ravenclaw Tower irritated her and in turn insisted that her friend Luna Lovegood do it instead.
Ginny and the other D. As more members of Dumbledore's Army and the Order of the Phoenix arrived for battle, Mr and Mrs Weasley forbade their daughter to take part in the fighting, since she was under age. Ginny furiously argued against it, as it was hypocritical, since Harry was much younger then her when he faced Voldemort all the previous times. Also she did not want to leave when her whole family and Harry would be fighting and wait at home for news.
Remus Lupin offered a compromise: Ginny would stay in the Room of Requirement so as to be on the scene, but would not involve herself in the fighting. Although she did not like it, she grudgingly agreed. He asked Ginny to leave the room, on the proviso that she would re-enter it once he had completed his task, not believing that she would. Freed of her sanctuary Ginny joined the battle with a flourish. She and Nymphadora Tonks were later seen by Harry firing well aimed jinxes from a high-up window into the crowd of fighters below.
After the initial fighting Lord Voldemort called a temporary truce to allow the combatants to retrieve their dead, and for Harry to give himself up to avoid further killing. Ginny was shocked and heartbroken by the death of her brother Fred , and was comforted by Hermione. She later assisted in the recovery of the wounded outside the castle. When Harry passed her on his way to face Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest under the Invisibility cloak , she was comforting an injured girl.
Harry thought she might have sensed his presence as he walked away, but the two had no contact, as Harry did not want anyone to try and stop him. Ginny is spared death at the hands of Bellatrix Lestrange by mere inches. When the seemingly lifeless body of Harry was presented to the defenders of Hogwarts by Voldemort, Ginny cried out in disbelief and grief. However, his apparent death spurred the defenders on, and Neville took up the Sword of Gryffindor and beheaded Nagini.
Just as a Killing Curse missed Ginny by an inch her mother took up the fight and killed the witch who had almost murdered her daughter and mocked the death of her son. Ginny witnessed Harry's final defeat of Lord Voldemort, and was one of the first people to run and hug him. She sat with her head on her mother's shoulder during the victory celebrations in the Great Hall.
She became a professional Quidditch player for the Holyhead Harpies for several years. Ginny eventually retired and the couple had a family. A 36 year old Ginny Potter with her family in While here, she wrote several articles for the Daily Prophet using her married name, Ginny Potter. Rita while in the journalists' enclosure repeatedly made corrections to Ginny's reports. This continued until shortly after the match ended, Rita remarked that her husband Harry Potter was " publicity-hungry " — just as Ginny was approaching. Rita was taken "unaccountably ill" with what some called " a jinx to the solar plexus ".
By this time all three of the couple's children were attending Hogwarts. Ginny in her sixth year , age Ginny was described to be an extremely pretty girl. She had the typical Weasley family traits: flaming red hair which she wore in a long mane and a freckled complexion. She was of petite stature and had bright brown eyes like her mother. When she blushed which was often around Harry in the early years of their friendship , she 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. In , Pansy Parkinson stated that " a lot of boys like her ", and that even Blaise Zabini found her "good-looking", with the additional observation that Blaise 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 a forceful, independent girl who often knew her own mind.
She had an energetic, lively personality; having feelings for Harry, however, during the first few years of their friendship, she became shy and withdrawn in his presence. She relaxed and reasserted her usual self, which was when Harry finally started noticing her. Growing up with six older brothers toughened her up.
Ginny was not afraid to stand up to anybody, friends and enemies alike. Notably, she stood up to Draco Malfoy on their first meeting in Flourish and Blotts when he insulted Harry in For instance, she made fun of Fleur Delacour behind her back when she first became engaged to Bill. Ginny also hexed and crashed into Zacharias Smith when he irritated and insulted her on two separate occasions during her fifth year. Ginny was popular during their time at Hogwarts , and was fancied by numerous boys.
Her brothers: Fred , George , and Ron , often thought that she was too popular for her own good. She was also known to be quick-witted, funny, and could often make others laugh even when they were feeling down. While staying at 12 Grimmauld Place , she was taught by Nymphadora Tonks how to check if a door had been imperturbed by flicking dungbombs at it and watching them bounce away as if hitting an invisible wall. When asked by her mother who was responsible she blamed it on Crookshanks , even though her hands were filthy at the time.
During the first meeting of what would become the D. She convinced passing students that the corridor to Umbridge's office had been flooded with garroting gas. Ginny was also an animal lover, and was known to be 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 could not remember what she was doing at the time and feared that she was responsible.
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. Ginny's courage also enabled her to take part in a three-way duel in the Battle of Hogwarts alongside Luna and Hermione against the powerful and insane Bellatrix Lestrange.
Ginny's corporeal horse Patronus , which 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. The only daughter in the family, she had to deal with an over-protective mother, who tried to prevent Ginny from fighting in the Battle of Hogwarts , despite her previous displays of strength and skill fighting alongside Dumbledore's Army at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.
Some of Ginny's brothers also 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 Thomas , though they eventually made up. Ginny appeared to worship her brother Bill , defending his choice of earring and hairstyle to their mother,  and initially feeling that he could do a lot better than Fleur Delacour , whom she mockingly called " Phlegm ". She caught him kissing his girlfriend, Penelope Clearwater , during 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 like he tried to with Ron , but she, like Ron, took after Fred and George, the fun-loving twins. Following Percy's decision to turn his back on his family over their support of Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter instead of the Ministry , Ginny was furious with him and even threw mashed parsnips at him when he came to the Burrow at Christmas in She had no problem telling him or anyone else off when she believed his behaviour was unreasonable, and she had 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 , Ginny comforted Ron when he humiliated himself by asking Fleur Delacour to attend the Yule Ball with him, while still managing to find the situation very funny. 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 has 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. Ginny genuinely cared for all of her family, though, and would often comfort them in times of need, such as when Ron made a fool of himself by asking Fleur to the Yule Ball,  or when Bill was permanently scarred by Fenrir Greyback.
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. When Ginny was in third year Ron suggested that Harry take her to the Yule Ball , but 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.
