Day Twelve: Favorite Ship
Oh boy. Possibly the most divisive subject in Potter fandom. People tend to get pretty militant about this sort of thing, I’ve never fully understood why.
Maybe I’m a canon purist, or maybe I’m just a sucker for watching relationships develop over…
I totally agree w/ the 1st segment. H/G relationship grew over the years. There are so many poignant beautiful moments in the books that points to that.
As to the 2nd segment - how much did Harry knew about his mother? Yes, he’s seen bits and pieces from Snape’s memories and from others that knew her well (Sirius, Lupin, Hagrid). Lily’s a brave, beautiful, emphatic individual.
Studies showed that some people fall for those sharing similar traits/characteristics to their parents (good role models). It’s the oedipus complex. So that could explain Harry’s initial attraction to Ginny.
The parallel between the two redheads - Lily & Ginny - brave, beautiful, emphatic individuals & being redheads, stop here. Lily’s a Head Girl (level headed) but Ginny’s athletic (passionate). Ginny, like her twin brothers, are mischievous and naughty and has great sense of humour.
So yeah - those other qualities that Ginny have, are what Harry loves about her. And most of all, she’s always attuned to Harry’s emotion. She doesn’t nag but find ways to connect with him.
It’s just a shame that the H/G romance was butchered in the movies *sigh
