Take a look at @WWF’s Tweet:
J.K. Rowling has the dubious honor of inspiring “the Dementor wasp,” a wasp discovered in Asia which has been named after the soul-sucking creature from the Harry Potter novels.
The Dementor wasp (also known as “the Ampulex Dementor”) was discovered in Thailand, and was named by popular vote. We’re sure you can’t wait to find out what this horrifying thing does, so here we go:

The Dementor wasp, much like its namesake, paralyses its prey with venom, turning it into a zombie-like creature with no free will of its own, guiding it to its death before eating it alive.

Now, before you book your seat on the Mars One expedition, be comforted by the fact that Dementor wasps’ prey of choice is the cockroach. So unless that happens to be your Animagus form, you’ll probably be alright.

Reminder that in Prisoner of Azkaban, after the dementor got on the train, Harry was the only one who fainted.

Which is fair, considering he was remembering the murder of his parents for the first time ever, but also remember that at this point all he heard was screaming and got the brunt of repressed emotions.

Ginny Weasley, however, did not faint. She was a child of 12 and, only a few months prior, had been possessed by Lord Voldemort and left to die in the Chamber of Secrets. 

Ginny Weasley faced the dementor, presumably was forced to relive this still terribly fresh trauma, and she held up.

Ginny Weasley is strong as hell and always has been.
