Ginny Weasley 30 day Character Challenge: Day 8
Pick two songs that describe her at two different points of her life, and explain why you chose them.
Interestingly, the two songs that i always thought fit Ginny so well apply to pretty sad moments in her life. The first song, I’m still standing by Elton John, is such a strong embodiment of the emotions that must have empowered Ginny to move on from the Diary incident. The song’s chorus, i think, are extremely fitting:
Don’t you know I’m still standing better than i ever did
looking like true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mindThe next song is one that is very popular at the moment. Although i don’t think that every word of Say Something by A Great Big World necessarily fits Ginny, every time i hear the words:Say something i’m giving up on youi can’t help but visualize Ginny in her third year and Harry’s fourth, hoping against all hope that he would ask her to the yule ball. Can you hear her heart breaking that fateful day, standing there with Harry and Ron, while the former prattled on about missing his chance to take Cho to the ball? And then the agony of having to turn Harry down because she’s already promised Neville, and wasn’t going to let go of her integrity, even for Harry. Such a bittersweet moment. And yet, what strength of character Ginny displayed!

It seemed to take Sirius an age to fall. His body curved in a graceful arc as he sank backward through the
ragged veil hanging from the arch…
And Harry saw the look of mingled fear and surprise on his godfather’s wasted, once-handsome face as he
fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a
high wind and then fell back into place.
