ginny does this

Today in invalid arguments as to why drarry shouldn't be canon

“But if Draco and Harry are together, who does Ginny get to be with????”

OKAY FIRST OFF GINNY IS A FUCKING INDEPENDENT WOMAN WHO DOESN’T NEED TO BE TIED TO ANYONE AND SECOND she and Luna are deeply in love duh

Ginny does not react as well as she’d hoped she would when seven year old Lily Luna inevitably asks for a pretty diary for her birthday. 

After talking it over with Harry, though, she agrees to buy one. It’s pink, glittery, and purchased from a muggle craft store. Bill runs several Curse-Breaking tests on it before she wraps it and gifts it to her daughter, still uncomfortable with the idea, but not wanting to deprive her children of anything because of her own fears.

“obviously, she is feeling very sad, because of cedric dying. then i expect she’s feeling confused because she liked cedric and now she likes harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to cedric’s memory to be kissing harry at all… and she probably can’t work out what her feelings are towards harry anyway, because he was the one who was with cedric when cedric died, so that’s all very mixed up and painful.”

After Harry’s third year, after he meets Sirius and sees what it might look like to have a family, he spends long hours on his bed, interacting with the Maurader’s Map, prodding it with his wand and reading his dad’s responses.

The map doesn’t recognize Harry, calls him, “Future Gryffindor” and warns him to get rid of the map. Still, though, Harry is as mesmorized by his father’s handwriting as he was by his parents’ image in the Mirror of Erised.

Hermione thinks it’s unhealthy behavior, but Ron and Ginny convince her to leave him alone. He’s coping how he can.

MERTHUR PARTY Day 1 - Prompt #2: What was the first Arthur/Merlin scene you saw and why did you start shipping them?

I’d been hearing about Merlin from several people on my LJ f-list since it started airing in 2008, but because I was too busy with Japanese boys at the time, I never got around to actually seeing it until I caught the airing on one of our local cable channels nearly two years later (coincidentally I had already left my previous fandom just a few months before).

The first episode I chanced upon was “The Lady of the Lake” from S2. As I mentioned, thanks to my LJ friends, I’d already had an idea about how gay these two were for each other, so Merlin getting himself a girlfriend in this episode threw me off a bit at first. (Of course, I fell in love with them together soon enough, and found myself at a loss at their doomed love in the end. But that’s a story for another day.)

The scenes Merlin and Arthur had with each other, though, were pure gold. I found that, though the relationship tended to be slightly abusive, their true feelings for each other were apparent in how comfortable they were in each other’s presence, how openly they were able to tease each other, and with that final scene, where Arthur noogie’d Merlin into feeling better, I saw genuine care and immediately understood why people went crazy over those two.

Attempted to catch a couple more episodes after that (it took me more than a month to do so again, finally catching “The Moment of Truth” followed a week later by “The Labyrinth of Gedref”, because I fail like that sometimes) before I decided to torrent all the episodes of the first two seasons and marathon the fuck out of them. Managed to catch up just in time for S3, and a year and some later, here I am. XD

996. One day, Harry stumbled across a hilariously terrible story someone had written about him and his friends. He decided to show to Ginny, Ron and Hermione and the reactions consisted of laughter, and constant repeating of the phrase "Wait, what?" Once they finished reading it, Ron immediately said "Can you imagine if that actually happened?" To which they all collectively shuddered. This story was called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

And isn’t that one of the best things about Dumbledore? You can point at him to get away with doing basically anything an adult tries to tell you not to do.

“You can’t do ___; it’s irresponsible.” “Um, Professor Dumbledore hid an object that Voldemort was trying to steal in our school—that’s much more irresponsible.”

“You can’t say ___; it’s very immature.” “Um, Professor Dumbledore literally greeted us one year by saying ‘Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!’”

“You can’t eat ___; it’s unhealthy.” “Um, Professor Dumbledore basically eats nothing but sugar and he’s 100+ years old.”

“You can’t ___ at school; you’ll get in trouble.” “Um, Professor Dumbledore didn’t in any way punish a Death Eater who was trying to assassinate him and accidentally attacking students instead. There is no way I’ll ever be in actual trouble.”
