THE MAGIC BEGINS [09] a character you feel the need to defend - Ginny Weasley

“The plan, which I really hope I fulfilled, is that the reader, like Harry, would gradually discover Ginny as pretty much the ideal girl for Harry. She’s tough, not in an unpleasant way, but she’s gutsy. He needs to be with someone who can stand the demands of being with Harry Potter, because he’s a scary boyfriend in a lot of ways…. I think she’s funny, and I think that she’s very warm and compassionate. These are all things that Harry requires in his ideal woman…. And I feel that Ginny and Harry, in this book, they are total equals. They are worthy of each other. They’ve both gone through a big emotional journey…. So, I enjoyed writing that. I really like Ginny as a character.”
