–––– – ❝ wouldn’t it be better, make you s t r o n g e r , to have your soul in more pieces, i mean, for instance, isn’t seven the most powerfully magical number, wouldn’t seven –– ? merlin’s beard, tom! seven! isn’t it bad enough to think of killing one person? and in any case…bad enough to divide the soul…but to rip it into s e v e n pieces… of course, this is all h y p o t h e t i c a l , what we’re discussing, isn’t it? all academic… yes, sir, of course.
I see some dumb claims about Ginny Weasley in HP even though she had valid reasons for who and what she was.
Her being a gifted witch was explained: A) she grew up in a magical family so she already had loads of ability by 11-years-old. Then she learned more at Hogwarts. B) She was the 7th child of 7 children. So she was born to be gifted because 7 is “the most powerfully magical number”.
Her being a great Quidditch player was explained: A) she’d practiced flying (and obviously Quidditch) since she was six. 8-9 years of practice would give her skill. Then she got even more being on the team. B) a lot of her family had some skill. Her brother Charlie could’ve played for England. So Ginny was already genetically inclined towards sport and flying.
Her being good looking was explained: A) her brother Bill was the same way. And the twins were also quite attractive. Some of the Weasley’s were just naturally good looking. B) Harry always thought of her in flattering/positive ways. So even at 10 she was obviously appealing. People often get even more attractive when older.
Her being smart was explained: her brother Percy was very intelligent. So Ginny having some intelligence makes sense. From early on she’s implied to be smart. But she’s never implied to be a genius.
Her being attractive to boys and her being popular were explained: She was good looking, confident, likable, talented, quite mature, and she had nerve. Bill and the twins were attractive to the opposite sex. And they were popular. Ginny was similar to them.
Ginny didn’t randomly become anything. Everything was already shown in her, was a family trait or it was explained. And in a lot of ways she was a classic Leo. She had the expected good traits of Leos. Harry also had most of them. Some of Ginny’s brothers had similar qualities to her. She just had more than them. Which is right considering she was born as magically special.
