Ginny Weasley 30 day Character Challenge: Day 6
How do you think the diary incident influenced her? Good and/or bad?
The diary incident, in my opinion, influenced Ginny both for good and for bad. Let me explain. I wouldn’t say the incident had a negative influence on Ginny’s personality, but it certainly did on her emotions. I imagine there was a lot of emotional trauma associated with it, and it was rather long lasting. Four years after the incident, Ginny clearly still had some emotional struggle with it, as can be seen in the “Lucky you” incident.
As in all great “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger stories”, the incident also did Ginny a lot of good. I think we owe a lot of Ginny’s BAMFness to that incident. Of course, even as a child, Ginny showed signs of strong character when she defied her whole family by teaching herself to fly. But successfully surviving one whole year of possession by the darkest wizard of the time, and successfully overcoming the emotional trauma associated with it must have given Ginny’s confidence and belief in herself such a boost. A la, “if i can survive Tom Riddle, i can survive anything!”
