Care for a Bat Bogey Hex? Anyone?
Greetings Fellows! I'm Isabellagirl033 and I've written this articulo to clear the confusion that many of tu seem to make. I've seen and heard many people classifying Ginny Weasley as a Mary Sue character. Yikes!
Jk Rowling has made the character of Ginny Weasley a very complex one. She evolves from a shy, little girl to a fiery and outspoken redhead. The problem is that Ginny has so many positive characteristics that they overshadowed her flaws.
Ginny indeed has many flaws etc. *
In the Chamber of Secrets, Ron himself says that "Ginny never shuts up, normally" meaning that one of her flaws is that she is extremely outspoken o possibly even a bit rude with her brothers. *
Also in the Chamber of Secrets, we are dado the hint that Ginny feels uncomfortable around strangers. *
Throughout the series, we see that Ginny has trouble exposing her feelings to Harry possibly meaning that she has trouble displaying her emotions to other people. *
She calls her to be sister-in-law "Phelgm"
stating that she judges people on first impressions thus being a judgemental person.
Another problem is that some people fail to see her positive characteristics! They are many of them such as: *
She rocks at doing Hexes! Remember the Bat Bogey Hex? She even got into the Slug Club because of it. *
She is beautiful enough for a Slytherin( Blaise Zabini) to think so. *
She is very skilled at Quidditch. *
She is popular among Gryffindors.
I think the reason most people hate Ginny Weasley is that they tend to judge Movie Ginny instead of Book Ginny. Even I have to agree that Movie Ginny was bland and boring. Please dont get me wrong, I have nothing against Bonnie Wright. I am sure she is a wonderfully talented, beautiful and strong person and actress but she just wasnt right for the portrayal of Ginny. Kudos to the directors for making her worse.
The girl is beautiful! What did they do to her?
Instead of hating, embrace the character that is Ginny Weasley. I hope tu are all convinced now that Ginny is not a Mary Sue but a fiery,smart and flawed little redhead.
It's goodbye for now!
