somekindofdumpsterjedi: The difference between movie Ginny and book Ginny is simple. Movie Ginny tells Harry his shoelace is untied, then bends down and ties it for him. Book Ginny would tell him his shoelace is untied, make a sarcastic comment about it, and leave. Movie Ginny wants to take care of Harry. Book Ginny knows, understands, and encourages him to take control of his own life. Movie Ginny probably wouldn’t have let him go without her if it wasn’t in the book. Book Ginny knows he has to go alone (well, alone-ish) and stays strong for him. Movie Ginny goes after what she wants and throws herself out there. Book Ginny does what’s best for everyone else. Movie Ginny is written as a Harry-chasing, weaker, sometimes reckless girl. Book Ginny is strong, smart, independent, brave, and, with age, calms down to let Harry come to her. Movie Ginny was severely messed up in the screen-writing process. Book Ginny is one of the strongest female characters, maybe ever. So please don’t judge her based on how a few filmmakers weren’t able to fully grasp the importance of her character.
