Leos {Harry and Ginny Potter} The canon ship that has inspired so many gifted artists continues to grow.

"The plan was, which I really hope I fulfilled, is that the reader, like Harry, would gradually discover Ginny as pretty much the ideal girl for Harry. She's tough, not in an unpleasant way, but she's gutsy. He needs to be with someone who can stand the demands of being with Harry Potter, because he's a scary boyfriend in a lot of ways. He's a marked man. I think she's funny, and I think that she's very warm and compassionate. These are all things that Harry requires in his ideal woman. But, I felt — and I'm talking years ago when all this was planned — initially, she's terrified by his image. I mean, he's a bit of a rock god to her when she sees him first, at 10 or 11, and he's this famous boy. So Ginny had to go through a journey as well. And rather like with Ron, I didn’t want Ginny to be the first girl that Harry ever kissed. That's something I meant to say, and it's kind of tied in. Harry has really grown. And I feel that Ginny and Harry, they are total equals. They are worthy of each other. They've both gone through a big emotional journey, and they've really got over a lot of delusions, to use your word, together. So, I enjoyed writing that. I really like Ginny as a character."
~ JKR ~


"One story, which is Harry and Ginny, is all absolutely love's young dream. Harry is completely besotted with her, and it's that kind of all-encompassing love that you have where nothing else matters."
- Daniel Radcliffe

"The relationship Ginny & Harry have - the romance they share is quite individual, this innocent but pure connection they have with each other, because obviously we know they end up together."
- Bonnie Wright

ღ Harry & Ginny; T h e i r Story...

♥ - The Big Damn Emotional Journey - ♥
Credit to Marta for Artwork and Leo-4-Life for Summary


She liked him. "She's been talking about you for ages." He was skinny and small. He had bright green eyes. He was a hero. A hero at the tender age of one. But he was isolated, awkward, and confused. Sometimes angry, sometimes introverted. Temperamental. Undesirable. He was her brother's best friend. And now he was older. He was angsty. He was burdened. He was always covered in blood. "Why is it that he's always covered in blood?" 15 years of turmoil communicated through dry wit and screaming dulcet tones. She realized he liked someone else. Someone older. Someone prettier. "Well at least we know one thing, Cho couldn't take her eyes off you could she?" She knew he was out - of - bounds. But it didn't matter. Because he was sweet, he didn't pick on her. He liked her family. He brought her out of the Chamber. He saved her life. “It's all right Ginny.”

So..she ran after his train as it took off - laughing, crying, falling back. She scampered away when he came to her house. Shoved her elbow into a butter dish. She'd blush to the roots of her flaming hair. Glow like the setting sun. She gave him his first singing Valentine. His first Valentine, ever. "His eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad, his hair is as dark as a blackboard. I wish he was mine, he's really divine, the hero who conquered the Dark Lord." She made him a get-well card. Gave it to him in person. Her brothers would tease her. But he would always try to be nice. He'd pretend not to notice. She'd embarrass herself anyway. So, she was given advice. She became more herself. She "gave up on him"...seemingly.


"- Is that why she talks now?"


And so... He liked her. "Smart girl that Hermione." What could he possibly see in her? "She was smart, funny, attractive". She had a mane of red hair and bright brown eyes. She smelled of flowers. She was his best friend's sister. His friend was overprotective. He knew she was out - of - bounds. And now she was older. Rash. Temperamental. Rarely weepy. 'But that was one of the many wonderful things about her'. She replaced his position on the Quidditch team...and she was good. Really good. She took his defense classes. She conjured a patronus. She blew up a dummy. "Fantastic, Ginny!!" She was smaller and a year younger. But it didn't matter. "Size was no guarantee of power." She laughed at the same jokes he did. Pompous Percy with his girlfriend. Lockhart and his memory. She made him feel better when he was upset. "Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."Yelled at him when he was being ridiculous. "Lucky, you." She wiped the blood off his face. She risked her life for him when she was only fourteen. She never nagged. She wasn't weird. She didn't cry.

Her brown eyes reflecting against the firelight. Her bright red hair dancing behind her. Her reading a book in her bedroom window. He would walk with her after practice. Laugh at her jokes. His stomach swooped when she patted his arm. He'd hug her quickly and move away. He'd stand up when she walked into a room. He'd vapor-lock. He'd embarrass himself. He'd have dreams. "Dreams that made him devoutly thankful that his best friend could not perform legilimency." He felt goosebumps when she touched his hair...when she bent down and tied his shoes."Merry Christmas, Harry."And so, eventually...finally. "Without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her."

It's going to be great to watch!"

"The train began to move. Harry saw the boys' mother waving and their sister, half laughing, half crying, running to keep up with the train until it gathered too much speed;
then she fell back and waved. Harry watched the girl and her mother disappear as the train rounded the corner."


{ 2 }

""Ginny!" Harry muttered, sprinting to her and dropping to his knees. "Ginny -- don't be dead -- please don't be dead --" He flung his wand aside, grabbed Ginny's shoulders, and turned her over.
Her face was white as marble, and cold as ice, yet her eyes were closed, so she wasn't Petrified. But then she must be --
"Ginny, please wake up," Harry muttered desperately, shaking her. Ginny's head lolled hopelessly from side to side.
- - - - -
"You've got to help me, Tom," Harry said, raising Ginny's head again. "We've got to get her out of here. There's a basilisk...I don't know where it is, but it could be along any moment.... Please help me --"
Riddle didn't move. Harry, sweating, managed to hoist Ginny half off the floor, and bent to pick up his wand again."


{ 3 }

""Ah, there's Penelope!" said Percy, smoothing his hair and going pink again. Ginny caught Harry's eye and they both turned away to hide their laughter as Percy strode over to a girl with long, curly hair, walking with his chest thrown out so that she couldn't miss his shiny badge."


{ 4 }

""He -- er -- just asked Fleur Delacour to go to the ball with him," said Ginny. She looked as though she was fighting back a smile, but kept patting Ron's arm sympathetically.
- - - - -
"She's part Veela," said Harry. "You were right -- her grandmother was one. It wasn't your fault, I bet you just walked past when she was turning on the old charm for Diggory and got a blast of it -- but she was wasting her time. He's going with Cho Chang." Ron looked up. "I asked her to go with me just now," Harry said dully, "and she told me." Ginny had suddenly stopped smiling."


{ 5 }

""Harry, I'm talking to you, can you hear me?"
"Huh?" He looked around. Ginny Weasley, looking very windswept, had joined him at the library table where Harry had been sitting alone.
"You seem really down lately," Ginny persisted. "You know, I'm sure if you just talked to Cho..."
"It's not Cho I want to talk to," said Harry bruskly.
"Who is it, then?" asked Ginny, watching him closely.
"I...." He glanced around to make quite sure that nobody was listening; Madam Pince was several shelves away, stamping out a pile of books for a frantic-looking Hannah Abbott. "I wish I could talk to Sirius," he muttered. "But I know I can't."
Ginny continued to watch him thoughtfully. More to give himself something to do than because he really wanted any, Harry unwrapped his Easter egg, broke off a large bit and put it into his mouth. "Well," said Ginny slowly, helping herself to a bit of egg too, "if you really want to talk to Sirius, I expect we could think of a way to do it...."
"Come on," said Harry dully. "With Umbridge policing the fires and reading all our mail?"
"The thing about growing up with Fred and George," said Ginny thoughtfully, "is that you sort of start thinking that anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
Harry looked at her. Perhaps it was the effect of the chocolate-Lupin had always advised eating some after encounters with dementors-or simply because he had finally spoken aloud the wish that had been burning inside him for a week, but he felt a bit more hopeful...."


{ 6 }

"A roar of celebration erupted from the hole behind her. Harry gaped as people began to scream at the sight of him; several hands pulled him into the room. "We won!" yelled Ron, bounding into sight and brandishing the silver Cup at Harry. "We won! Four hundred and fifty to a hundred and forty!
We won!" Harry looked around; there was Ginny running towards him; she had a hard, blazing look in her face as she threw her arms around him. And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her. After several long moments – or it might have been half an hour – or possibly several sunlit days – they broke apart."


{ 7 }

"None of the Death Eaters moved. They were waiting: everything was waiting. Hagrid was struggling, and Bellatrix was panting, and Harry thought inexplicably of Ginny, and her blazing look, and the feel of her lips on his—
Any moment, the people for whom he had tried to die would see him, lying apparently dead, in Hagrid's arms.
"Harry! HARRY!"
Ron's, Hermione's, and Ginny's voices were worse than McGonagall's; Harry wanted nothing more than to call back..."
