Welcome to another series on the blog.
This month I’m focusing on famous (and perhaps not so) couples in books and series, with the run up to Valentines Day and the month of ‘Love’.
And, of course, my first couple of the month is…
Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley
Initially we are introduced to the young ‘couple’ in the first Harry Potter book, where Ginny, being a young and awe-struck ten-year-old, is shy and ‘hides’ from Mr Potter.
That, and it seems neither pay much attention to the other.
The second book see’s Ginny at Hogwarts for her first year and under the spell of a Mr Tom Riddle. Again, neither party seems to pay much attention to the other.
I don’t think it’s until the 4th book that Harry really starts to take an interest in Ginny. This is also when Harry starts taking an interest in girls, full stop.
However, during her 4th and 5th year (correct me if I’m wrong) Ginny starts dating herself and thoughts of her crush on Harry Potter, seem to have just disappeared.
In Harry’s sixth year, Harry and Ginny finally kiss. After much deliberation and angst going on between the two characters, they kiss in the Gryffindor common room- after Ginny (and Gryffindor house) have won the Quidditch cup. Ginny runs toward Harry with the cup in her hands and they kiss.
In the film, it’s also the Half- blood prince. However the kiss takes place in the room of requirement- after Harry has been in there with Ginny to hide the Potions book.
And thus, we’re introduced to their, somewhat, spaced out relationship. Of course, this is understandable because of the whole Voldemort thing and leaving school and such and such. But in the prologue we’re told that they’re married and have 3 children; 2 boys and a girl.
Aw, how sweet!
