Everyone prepared for Ginny Weasley meta? CUZ HERE I GO
Okay so I was remembering all the early fandom nonsense criticizing Ginny for breaking up with boys for what they saw as silly reasons (they were not, and anyone has the right to end a relationship if it’s not working for them) and it occurred to me how Ginny refuses to put up with anyone giving her shit or not respecting her wishes or condescending to her can be directly traced back to her experiences with Tom Riddle.
He was, in many ways, Ginny’s first relationship. He looked down on her- there is no doubt about that since he openly mocked her to Harry. He was the only one in control in the relationship and he used that control to abuse, manipulate and possess her. Ginny was so lonely and felt so hopeless that she completely gave this much older guy she didn’t even know anything about everything he needed to exploit and control her. There were no boundaries in this relationship because Ginny was too young to feel the need for them. She gave and he took. She was treated in a way she did not in the least bit deserve. It was the very definition of an abusive relationship.
So is it really a surprise that after this horrific experience, Ginny developed very clear boundaries? That the instant a guy doesn’t respect her wishes, or treats her in a way she doesn’t deserve, she shuts him down completely or ends that relationship? That is more than just Ginny being strong willed (which is great), it’s also self-preservation developed from her desire not to end up in an abusive relationship again.
Look at Ginny’s three relationships:
if there is one thing i will NEVER forgive the hp movies for doing is when in the sectumsempra scene, in the book harry is literally on the verge of tears with guilt and shock and drops to his knees next to draco and hes like trying to cough out some sort of reasoning
and in the movies hes just like :)

Does anyone else find it kind of heartbreaking that the epilogue of Harry Potter takes place in 3 years? As of September 2016, we’ll have passed the entire timeline of Harry Potter…
#the fandom that will have 4 official endings and will still not be over it
tonks did not convince remus to be with her she convinced him he was good enough to be there is a huge difference
Witches and wizards often reveal themselves to each other in public by wearing purple or green, often in combination. In Britain (and much of Europe) purple has an association with both royalty and religion. Purple dyes, being costly, were once worn only by those who could afford them; bishops’ rings are traditionally set with amethysts. Green has long had a supernatural connection in the UK. Superstition says that it ought to be worn with care; the fairies are supposedly possessive of it, as it is their proper colour. It ought never to be worn at weddings, due to a further association with misfortune and death. Green is the colour of much ‘Dark’ magic; of the ‘Dark Mark’, of the luminescent potion in which Voldemort conceals one of his Horcruxes, of many ‘Dark’ spells and curses, and of Slytherin house. The combination of purple and green, therefore, is suggestive of both sides of magic: the noble and the ignoble, the helpful and the destructive.
Between Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Harry Potter and my other supernatural fandoms that all feature cursed objects. It’s a wonder I’m not terrified of second-hand stores.
Someone made a really good point in the commentary of a post once which basically boiled down to the fact that James and Lily’s patronuses complement each other (stag and doe) while Snape’s merely imitates Lily’s (doe and doe).
All of which just goes to show you how love and obsession are not the same thing at. all.
Thank you for your time.
Ok. So the Harry Potter fandom is one of the largest there is here on this website. And we’ve been starved of books and films for
way too fucking long quite a few years. Now there is a massive fan film coming up, for those of you who don’t know, called The Gathering Storm. It’s a film based in the Marauders era. From what I’ve seen, it’s looking really really good, and the cast is PERFECT. But here is the thing. They need $40,000 by Tuesday, April 22, 2014. If they don’t get it by then, this probably won’t happen. So I’m begging all those of you who can, to DONATE. If you can’t donate, atleast reblog this post so more people can know of it.
I’m calling on all of you Potterheads for your support, because I know this is a massive fandom, and we can really help this happen.
Come on you guys, if tumblr can get someone a fluffy chicken, we can definitely make this happen.
DONATE IF YOU CAN AND REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG AND WE MIGHT HAVE A FANFILM SOON.
Come on you guys, just 12 days left!
If everyone who reblogged/liked this dropped in a dollar or two, we’d be done! We can only pull this off with your help, guys!
We’re hit our goal, but we’ve still got time to raise additional funds! Additional funds we’re able to raise will end up getting poured into things like the soundtrack and special effects!
4 Hours until the Kickstarter closes at 2:08 PM EST!
We’ve passed our goal, but every dollar still helps! Help us make this film the best it can be!
Harry Potter Fans unite for The Gathering Storm!
I’m not connected to this production, but a potentially amazing Harry Potter fanfilm about the Marauders’ Era is trying to get funded. Every dollar counts. If it doesn’t get funded, no one is charged anything. If it does, we’ll get a fantastic Marauders’ Era fanfilm.There are only days left.
