Ginny Weasley: A High Price

December 24, 2010 Leave a comment

“A High Price” is a Harry Potter fanfic starring Ginny Weasley. It’s been written by Ayla Pascal.

This story deals with the lengths Ginny goes to obtain something that is very important to her.

This story doesn’t fit into canon, but do you know what? This mature, dark-ish portrayal of Ginny is totally convincing. The author makes the readers believe that yes, Ginny might have acted the way she does in this fic if Harry Potter wasn’t a book series for children.

Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood: The Attack of the Wrackspurts

January 2, 2010 Leave a comment

“The Attack of the Wrackspurts” is a Harry Potter gen fic starring Ginny and Luna. The author’s name is yet to be revealed and will be posted here as soon as I find it out.

This story shows the beginning of the friendship between Ginny and Luna through the former’s eyes. It’s set during their first year at Hogwarts.

I have to admit I didn’t fall in love with this fic at first sight/read. I had to reread some passages to finally realise that yes, this is well worth a rec. Both Luna and Ginny are in character—as well as Molly Weasley, seen in a cameo. It was very clever of the author to connect Luna’s beliefs to Ginny’s issues with Tom Riddle; as you’ll see, the fic’s title makes a lot of sense.

Harry Potter/Luna Lovegood, Ginny Weasley: Quixotic

December 26, 2009 Leave a comment

“Quixotic” is a fanfic starring Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood and Ginny Weasley. It’s been written by artemis_sparks.

In this story, Ginny breaks up with Harry and he finds comfort in his friendship—which eventually grows into something else—with Luna.

First of all, I want to thank Ayla Pascal for suggesting that I read this fic. Apparently Ayla has mind-reading powers: I was determined to have my next rec be a Harry/Luna fic, so her message reached me in a most appropriate moment; besides, she guessed exactly the kind of story I’d like to read, and trust me, this is something many people would get totally wrong even after reading about my preferences.

The author did a great job with the characterisations. Harry is his usual selfish, annoying and whiny self; Luna is, well, entirely Luna-esque; Ginny is in character too.

By the way, one thing I must praise artemis_sparks for is the way she dealt with Ginny, both as an individual and as Harry’s love interest. I don’t loathe the ship Harry/Ginny, I just find it utterly lame; while I dislike Harry, I certainly don’t hate Ginny. Yet, this is for the most part a Harry/Luna fic. So it would have been too easy for the writer to engage in some sort of Ginny bashing, and develop the plot so as to lead the readers to believe Luna is the only worthy woman in the world. As I read the fic, I grew more an more concerned, fearing that at any instant the author would fall into such traps. Fortunately, it never happened.

I loved the interactions between Luna and Harry. She helps him see old things with fresh eyes, in a way that is very much hers. I also liked the scenes with baby Teddy. Normally, I’m not too interested in small children, but Teddy’s presence in this fic is important. His reactions to the grown-ups’ actions and the way they behave towards him add a lot to the story.

The ending wasn’t the one I expected and this is precisely one of the strongest points in this fic. I’m going to post spoilers about it below. If you dislike spoilers, you can quit reading this review now and click here to read a very good Harry/Luna (and Ginny) fanfic.

Ginny Weasley/Pansy Parkinson: Maiden Voyage

December 17, 2009 Leave a comment

“Maiden Voyage” is a Harry Potter ficlet starring Ginny Weasley and Pansy parkinson. The author is tania_sings.

In this fic, Ginny feels the inconvenient effects of the Patented Daydreams, much to her embarrassment—and to Pansy’s amusement, it seems.

A nice quick read if you want some humourous femmeslash. It’s also a painless introduction to the Pansy/Ginny ship, in case you aren’t used to seeing these characters in such a context.

Ginny Weasley/Voldemort: The Road Less Travelled

December 13, 2009 Leave a comment

“The Road Less Travelled” is a Harry Potter fanfic starring Ginny Weasley and Lord Voldemort. The author’s name hasn’t been revealed yet; as soon as I find it out, I’ll update this post with the info.

In this AU fic, Ginny has never forgotten Tom Riddle, so she ends up joining Voldemort and the Death Eaters.

This is a twisted fairy tale, as you’ll see when you read the first and the final sections. What we have in between these parts is a gripping story, led by a fascinating dark!Ginny.

The author avoided all of the possible saccharine traps that a Ginny-who-still-cares-for-Riddle fanfic might hide. Instead of writing a silly romance, s/he focused on the ongoing war as a way to develop the plot and the characters. This (correct) choice makes the story all the more compelling.

Percy Weasley/Ginny Weasley: A Galleon and a Good Time

December 5, 2009 Leave a comment

“A Galleon and a Good Time” is a Harry Potter fanfic about incest, featuring Percy and Ginny Weasley. Errrr … well, yeah. No wonder it falls under my “guilty pleasures” category.

This story has been written by thegildedmagpie.

Besides dealing with incest, this Harry Potter fanfic also includes “chan,” i. e., an underaged character engages in activities of a sexual nature. I’m talking about 12-year-old Ginny. Yeah.

Normally I avoid this kind of story. However, I don’t know what happened to me this time, because … well, I caught myself reading and actually enjoying the fic. Percy’s characterisation is excellent, the hot scenes are *hot* indeed and the final paragraph is even dirtier than the rest of the story.

Do not read this Harry Potter fanfic if you don’t feel comfortable with its controversial topics. I’m warning you. On the other hand, if you’re O.K. with incest, chan and the such, you’ll probably love this story.

What? Do you want to know what this photo is doing here? Well, my good friend thamy complained about “the lack of pink on this blog.” So I thought I should insert a random yet appropriate photo somewhere just to have her shut up. 😛 And since that Percy/Ginny fanfic does mention the colour pink a few times, I guess said random photo belongs here. 😉
