Yeah, so everyone's talking about this one scene right? SO AWKWARD. But one thing more awkward than George walking in on Harry and Ginny kissing would be for him to walk in on Ginny just standing there half dressed.
*waits for arguments about how this scene made Ginny a slut or not*
Personally, I thought the shoelaces thing from HBP was weirder
Sorry there's not too much effort put into this, I had to finish it by tonight or else I wouldn't be able to post it until next week
Harry goes from seeing "little sis of his best mates, she still can't say a damn sentence to me, she's still a bloody fangirl" to "SHE IS A SUPERMEGAFOXYAWESOMEHOT GAL, I FEEL JEALOUSY SO I MUST BE IN LOVE WITH THE CHIC" in the span of, what? Two months? There is no instigator for this rapid change in perspective, and NO, hormones is NOT a plausible reason, puberty starts at 12-13, not 16. Harry also described him experiencing a clawing feeling in his chest from a scaly green monster whenever seeing Ginny and her boyfriend (no matter which guy it was), which is consistent with the human reaction from being jealous. It isn't helped by Harry's inexperience with love, by no fault of his own (abusive Dursley environment), and concludes that he is in love. He isn't in love, he's just mistaken jealousy for love.
I sometimes wonder if potions played a role in the Hinny development, including potioning Hermione, as she would never argue with Harry using notes, especially if they worked. After all, what were new editions of textbooks? Information being improved by people making notes. And for Harry to finally be a little enthusiastic about his education, in potions no less, she would be encouraging this new side of Harry, not reprimanding him. And besides, didn't Molly tell Hermione and Ginny that she made love potions as a young girl? Love potions are illegal. And the idea that an obsessive fangirl uses love potions on the object of her obsession after mother declares it an acceptable practice? Not exactly far-fetched.
