Involuntary Cryopreservation

At first, Ginny was completely content – bursting with pride, even – to keepher Patronus a secret. The Unspeakables had told her it was a powerful asset –there were whispers about Nundus – and that she shouldn’t tell anyone, noteven her parents, not even her best friends. They even lied to the DefenseProfessor’s face, and said that she had mad

Mysteries, Part 2

Ginny’s eyes drifted open. She stretched out on the small bed she had beenlaid on, and looked around. The room suddenly got quieter than it had been –upon seeing her waking, Professor Lockhart had stopped talking, in case shewanted to go back to sleep. But she did not.

“It didn’t work?” said Ginny.

“I’m afraid not, Miss Weasley,” said Professor Lockhart

Dark Triad

Ginny woke up on Saturday and immediately decided to speak with Tim. She puton her gloves – just to cover her bases, though at this point she figured sheprobably didn’t need them – and summoned forth the diary from the box beneathher bed, and returned to her bed to write in it.

“Hello, Tim.”

“You’re up awfully early.”

“I just got up. Most of Slytherin is up.”

Programming

In Charms class, on the first day that classes resumed, Ginny was distracted.She could afford to; she had a natural talent for Charms. Was it right topursue Draco and Harry simultaneously? Tim had dismissed the matter as girlishfoolishness immediately upon hearing of it, so she had tried to block it outof her mind, to feel more mature. But it was a serious con

Blackmail in Game Theory, Part 3

Ginny had been seething in the middle of the night, when she returned to herbed. Now, several hours had passed, and everyone was waking up around her, andshe barely felt any better. The school thought they had tested her forpossession, and so the possibility wasn’t worth considering, but they hadn’tthought that she might have been possesse

Blackmail in Game Theory, Part 2

“Hagrid, calm down,” said the Headmistress, though she was barely composedherself. Hagrid had no words for her, he was too busy bawling, gripping at thestone boy as if that would resuscitate him. “_Expecto Patronum. _Find CedricDiggory.” It only gave her the same sad look she had seen on it several monthsearlier, immediately after Harry in

“THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS WILL BE OPENED.”

Three sentences were etched into the exterior wall of Hogwarts early in themorning of Harry Potter Day, in enormous lettering, readable from Hagrid’shut. Smoke softly and endlessly drifted off of the letters, and the smell ofburning was faintly present throughout the castle. The spell that had been

Master-Slave Configuration

It had been a day, and Ginny had not thought of any method she could use toverify Tim’s noble intentions. She’d considered asking Draco, but had decidedit would be thoughtlessly rude to cast aspersions on his gift. However, Ginnyhad also not thought of any method by which Tim could exploit her formalicious ends, if she remained conscientious and

Escape Sequence

Ginny stared at the wood scrap on her desk and tried to turn it into brass,but it simply wouldn’t. Occasionally, she thought she’d see a shining fleckstart to appear, but it was probably only wishful thinking. She wasn’tmagically weak, so what was her problem? Charms were never this hard, at leastnot yet. Her mind wandered to a daydream of Harry and Draco

Radiocarbon Dating

She wasn’t upset that she hadn’t been selected to be a general;in fact she had chosen not to apply this year, both because she felt a need tobetter settle into Hogwarts before assuming more responsibilities, and becauseshe had hopes of building a reputation and

Cult-Like Behavior

Ginny was surprised to receive an invitation to Professor Slughorn’s newly-reconstituted Slug Club, a social order for those Slughorn believed hadspecial potential; she was a first year Weasley whose most notable academicachievement so far was her performance in her first Defense Against the DarkArts class. The Weasleys were a proud family, but not part

Tool Use

The Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom felt strangely barren to anyonewho had seen it last year, when it had been occupied by one of the greatestwizards ever to teach at Hogwarts. It certainly was physically set upprecisely as the previous instructor had done, with a massive combined-sectionclass (though, this time, it was all first and second year Slytherin

Garbage In, Garbage Out

Ginny Weasley was groggy when Madam Pomfrey got her up; she had not sleptwell. Her classmates would continue to sleep for another half an hour; she wasbeing woken up early to compensate for the time she would lose transferring toher proper dormitory.
