I just spend a lot of time thinking about everyone's reactions once Harry and Ginny get engaged. He knows she'd be pissed if he asked anyone in her family permission, but he can't help talking to Ron about it because that's a friendship he will not risk. (After some nervous stammering and Ron pretending to disapprove, they both get all happy and help plan each others' proposals). And then Harry's really worried about telling her parents because he remembers how Mrs. Weasley felt about (part 1)
(part 2) Bill and Fleur and he doesn’t think he could bear her disapproval so he spends the whole meal before the announcement freaking out more and more (Ron doesn’t say anything because he knows what’ll happen but thinks watching Harry panic is funny). When they finally tell the whole family, Mrs. Weasley spends an hour laughing continuously and crying and all around unable to contain her joy and will only stop hugging Harry to insist that they make his hand to go on the family clock
(part 3) right now and Bill and Charlie can’t stop grinning and shaking his hand. Mr. Weasley is so overcome he can’t speak and just sits in the corner smiling to himself. George, who was too busy at the shop, amused himself for weeks by sending Howlers to Harry at work that shouted innuendos and plans for the wedding involving gnome waiters and a cake that tastes like boiled grass, but always end with congratulations. Harry joining the Weasley family gives me a lot of feels, okay?
ME TOO MY FRIEND. ME TOO.
(And I really love your headcanon on this, although I kinda feel like Ginny might’ve had the guts to ask him first? She just totally knew what was going on and got a bit, well, tired of waiting, so at some point she just goes “hey how about we get married?”)
THE CLOCK THING THOUGH. YES.
