face claim: bonnie wright
::personality:: Temperamental ;; It's really no secret that Ginny Weasley can get a little hot-headed. She has the temper of her mother, something that most of the Weasley's inherited. It doesn't take a whole lot to tick her off. Of course, she also tends to forgive rather easily if you're close enough to her. She's in a constant love/hate relationship with most of her family who can annoy her to no end but she would also do anything for. It isn't unusual for Ginny to jinx someone who has annoyed her or has gotten in her way. On the other side, she can be incredibly caring. Her family gets on her nerves but when it comes down to it she would do anything for them.
Determined;; Whatever she sets her mind to, she does well. She has hopes and dreams just like the rest of the student body and she will die before she sees them get crushed. Ginny might not be the best at everything, but she certainly tries her hardest. At least, she tries to do her best at the things she's interested in.
Funny;; Ginny seems to take after Fred and George when it comes to sense of humor. After a few practical jokes had been played on her by her brothers, Ginny began fighting jokes with jokes. She learned from the best though nothing she can do would ever stand out next to the twins' work. Of course, she can get a bit touchy if the joke is played on her or if it's a particularly nasty one and she won't hold back when she gets whoever got her. But generally speaking, she can shrug a joke off with the intent on playing one later. Her pranks are especially mean to people she either doesn't like or who have done something to her. Her humor isn't just related to practical jokes, though. She can laugh along with others at a sarcastic comment or an actual joke.
Independent;; She firmly believes that she can take care of herself. Ginny would tell anyone who asks that her family babies her too much. Actually, a lot of her arguments stem from her desire to be as independent as possible. She grew up being looked after by her brothers because she was the youngest and the only female child. Ginny sort of resents this and small things like someone holding a door open for her or poking their nose too far into her personal life turn into horrible fights. Ginny wants to be viewed as a strong woman who can do anything that anyone else can do, but she feels like she's being held back a lot of the time when she isn't allowed to do certain things (like join the Order of the Phoenix, for example).
Stubborn;; Sometimes, you just can't get Ginny to admit that she's wrong or that there might have been a better way to do things. She's been known to throw massive fits, yelling and throwing things, when her parents want to keep her out of something or disagree with her. She very much wants to be involved in what is going on in the real world and not limited to the life of Hogwarts and she'll wiggle any information out of anyone that she can. When in an argument, she has a difficult time admitting that there might be another point of view and sometimes can't really see where the other person is coming from.
Competitive;; Like most of her family, Ginny is at her most comfortable on a broomstick hovering over the field of the Quidditch Pitch. While she isn't one to get overly depressed about a loss, she isn't going to deny that she loves to win. She goes to the extreme of yelling at Ron sometimes after practices when she thinks he's performed particularly awful. She wouldn't be above helping him if she thought it was a matter of practice instead of confidence.
Popular;; Though she tends to think she's not very attractive and even though she tends to play practical jokes, Ginny is rather popular. It isn't unusual to find her at the center of a group of people from a combination of all years and houses (Slytherin excluded as she has a sort of unreasonable dislike for the lot of them). She supposes that it is because she can laugh things off (generally) and that her practical jokes are rather funny when they aren't played on the person laughing, but the truth is she really doesn't understand what people see in her. Of course, that may all change now that she's come into her power.
Confused;; Though she wouldn't admit it to just anyone, Ginny is very confused about her new power. She wonders what it means that it came to her instead of Ron or one of her other brothers. She worries that she'll lose good friends over this. And she's also concerned about being kidnapped because of it. Hardly anyone would be able to tell, though. Gin puts on a tough face and she would do anything for her family and friends, even if it means risking everything.
On the 11th of August 1981, the youngest of the Weasley children was born, just before the first Wizarding War ended. Finally, Arthur and Molly had their little girl. A red-headed, pale-faced, freckled little girl. She grew up in the Burrow in Devon, England with her six older brothers. She was a fun-loving little girl right from the start and soon learned to speak up or go unheard. At an early age she started developing her sense of humor, courtesy of her older brothers Fred and George. She took after her twin brothers, laughing at their practical jokes, though she wasn’t much of a fan when they were played on her. Everyone in the family was teased, but Ginny felt like she was teased the most just because she was the youngest and a girl.
As she grew older, Ginevra began mimicking the behaviors of her family members and people they had over. She has it down to an art now and can make several people laugh. She also learned to be the teaser instead of the teased all the time. She began sort of tag-teaming on her brother Ron with the twins. Ron is the closest brother in age to her, being only one year older, so she finds it easier to tease him, though she knows how to throw a joke regarding her other brothers as well. This isn’t to say that she’s cruel, just that when she was growing up, she had to learn how to keep up with her brothers.
Quidditch was a favorite past time of the Weasley family, but Ginny was never allowed to play with the boys when she was a child. She used to sneak the brooms though and practice flying. She saw it as taking charge of herself. Because she practiced in secret, it was a huge surprise when everyone found out that she was actually a really good flyer and a pretty decent player.
Ginny always wanted to go to Hogwarts, ever since her oldest brother got his letter. She loved magic and was fascinated with what it could do. She met Harry Potter on her first trip to Kings Cross Station, though she still had a year before she was able to attend Hogwarts. She liked Harry from the first time she saw him, though she wasn’t aware of who he was at the time. When Ron told them all who the kid they had all met was, Ginny became uneasy and could think of very little else. She was sad to see her brothers go and her be left behind, even crying and running after the train before waving goodbye, but her older brothers promised to send her owls. Sometimes she got them, sometimes she didn’t. Their owl wasn’t very good. She used the time her brothers were gone to practice flying on the brooms in the shed.
The next year she was allowed to attend Hogwarts. Being pure blood and a Weasley, she knew she would get her letter. She also knew which house she would be put in before she was even on the train. Everyone was a Gryffindor in her family. Because she was the first female to attend Hogwarts since her mother, she got new robes and clothes, which she thought her brother Ron was particularly jealous of though he never said anything that she knew of. It wasn’t until she went to Hogwarts, though that she realized her family was poor. She thought every family did hand-me-downs and knitted sweaters. Despite being poor, Ginny quickly became popular, though she was now very awkward around Harry, whom she was infatuated with, often running away when he spoke to her. Still, she rocked her patched up jeans and Hogwarts uniforms.
Her first year at Hogwarts was her most terrifying. Even with all that she went through in the later years, she is still haunted by what happened when she was eleven. The Chamber of Secrets was opened and Ginny kept blacking out, not remembering what she had done in the last few hours. Conveniently, it was during the time the messages were being left on the wall. She was frightened that she was the one causing all the trouble. She confided in the diary she had found in her cauldron and conversed with a Tom Riddle. He wanted to know an awful lot about Harry, and Ginny was so scared that she ended up throwing the diary in the girl’s bathroom. Later she found out that she was sort of responsible for some of the things that had happened, but that Tom Riddle was Lord Voldemort and had possessed her body through the use of the journal. Thankfully, Harry saved her from the Chamber and she admitted to him that she had done everything.
The summer before her third year, the family along with Harry and Hermione went to the Quidditch World Cup. Ginny was glad that Hermione was going because the two had formed a sort of friendship since she had started Hogwarts. Hermione encouraged Ginny to relax around Harry, and maybe start seeing someone else. The trip was cut short when the camp was attacked. That year was also the year of the Triwizard Tournament. Ginny was so excited to be asked to the ball, even if it was by Neville. Not that she had anything against Neville Longbottom, it was just that she would have preferred if Harry had asked her. Throughout the entire tournament, Ginny was very scared for Harry. She immediately believed him at the end of the year when he said that Voldemort was back. Of course she was afraid, just the previous year the Dark Lord had possessed her body.
Her fourth year at Hogwarts was eventful. Dolores Umbridge started teaching, if you could call it that, Defense Against the Dark Arts. The woman was a horrible teacher with an even worse personality. This was also the year that Ginny started really dating. Her first real boyfriend was Michael Corner who she started seeing just before the summer and whom she had met at the Yule Ball when Neville had taken her. She broke up with Corner fairly quickly once she realized that he was a very sore looser. That year Ginny replaced Harry on the Quidditch team as Seeker during his broom ban. Harry also started the DA that year and Ginny was more than happy to sign up for it. Unfortunately, that meant she had to watch Harry's short-lived relationship with Cho, which was a bit depressing, but she did her best not to let it bother her.
Ginny has recently discovered her elemental power, and has had a little trouble getting used to this new aspect of her life. Though she tries to hide it, she is worried about what it means for her, her relationships, and what the coming years will bring.
