Makoto got a new haircut and all eyes are on him everywhere he goes especially in school and it annoys Haru. It’s just a haircut and Makoto has always been handsome so why are they only noticing now? It irritates him to no end but he’s pretty sure there’s more to it. He decided to confront his best friend about how he feels which he figured out just recently during their night jogging. Haru was worried since Makoto was just staring at him not responding at all! HE JUST CONFESSED! Good god! Reject me or whatever just say something! So he dared to ask, “What are you thinking about?”
Saw this and well… I-it’s not like I think about their confession a lot at night. That’s ridiculous. Who does that? D8 Makoto and his stupid hair
“Average Austrian expat would climb 3 mountains to escape Nazis” factoid actually just statistical error. Spiders Georg von Trapp, who would climb every mountain, is a statistical outlier adn should not have been counted.
A few months later, Ron and Harry catch her kissing Dean; Ron comes dangerously close to calling her a slut. Ginny lays into him; she is merciless, ripping into Ron about his own lack of experience. She accuses him, “Been kissing Pigwidgeon, have you? Or have you got a picture of Aunt Muriel stashed under your pillow?” 46 It is very clear that Ginny is more than willing to use humour as a deadly part of her arsenal when she is angry.
It should be noted, however, that this aspect of Ginny’s personality is actually very similar to Harry’s own behaviour. Harry has always used his sense of humour against those with whom he is angry with or does not like.
The most obvious example is Dudley. In the first book, before Harry learns of Hogwarts, Dudley teases him about the local comprehensive. “˜They stuff people’s heads down the toilet first day at Stonewall,’ he told Harry. ˜ Want to come upstairs to practise?’ ˜No thanks,’ said Harry. ˜The poor toilet’s never had anything as horrible as your head down it - it might be sick.’ ” 47 A few years later, when Dudley claims he had the right to beat up a ten-year-old because he cheeked Dudley, Harry replies, “Yeah? Did he say you look like a pig that’s been taught to walk on its hind legs? ˜Cause that’s not cheek, Dud, that’s true.” 48 Unable to use magic during the summer, Harry easily resorts to his oldest survival mechanism to deal with the enormous bully Dudley.
In fact, Harry’s reliance on humour has become so instinctive by the sixth book, he does not even think before he uses it. During his first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson, Harry and Snape have the following exchange:
“Do you remember me telling you we are practising non-verbal spells, Potter?”
“Yes’ said Harry stiffly.
“There’s no need to call me ˜sir’, Professor.”
The words had escaped him before he knew what he was saying. Several people gasped, including Hermione. Behind Snape, however, Ron, Dean, and Seamus grinned appreciatively.49
When angered, Harry turns to the device that has served him so well all his life, even when it is not necessarily in his best interests and earns him detention.
Harry is not shy about using his wit in fights with his closest friends. When Harry’s name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, he and Ron stop speaking for a time, largely due to Ron’s jealousy. One night they have a fight; Harry throws a ˜Potter Really Stinks’ badge at Ron’s head and sarcastically quips, “There you go. … Something for you to wear on Tuesday. You might even have a scar now, if you’re lucky. […] That’s what you want, isn’t it?” 50 Ron’s insecurity about his place in the world has caught up with him. Ron is angry because he worries he is only the sidekick, never having any attention for himself. Recognition is something for which Ron yearns. Harry knows this; Hermione has tried to explain it to him. However, he is not afraid to use biting sarcasm to throw that insecurity back in Ron’s face when Harry becomes angry.
The way Harry and Ginny both use their humour as a weapon make them evenly matched. They both have the same dark, dry wit and are not afraid to use it when it suits them. Ginny’s possible fault in no way makes her unworthy of Harry; it is a behaviour pattern they share.
It is likely they could turn this weapon on each other; every couple fights eventually. It may work out, however, that they would be less hurt by a defense mechanism they both use and understand. In addition, their rather mature emotional honesty to date indicates they would survive any squabbles fairly well.
