We know why Harry had the most violent reaction to the dementor’s was because he’d experienced terrible things, even if he didn’t truly remember them, but can you remember who had the second worse reaction? Ginny. Harry had fainted, but Hermione, Ron and Neville were okay once the dementor left, Ginny, however wasn’t. But what could be so bad for a 12 year old girl who grew up in a loving home? A girl who the year before had been possessed, and used, and had been the reason for several near deaths, including her own. What could be so bad for a girl who lived in the shadows of being the youngest, to then live in the shadow of Tom Riddle as he destroyed her? Harry heard his mum scream with the dementor’s. Ginny just saw a book. A black book, with no words, but the power to destroy a life.
Surely you didn’t think I was going to keep my filthy Muggle father’s name? No. I fashioned myself a new name, a name I knew wizards everywhere would one day fear to speak, when I became the greatest sorcerer in the world!
