Marauders Appreciation Week [1/7] - One Order Member

The school greeted Minerva McGonagall’s return with delight. Minerva threw herself into her work, proving herself a strict but inspirational teacher…. The death of Dougal McGregor, however, although traumatic, seemed to free Minerva. Shortly after Voldemort’s first defeat, Elphinstone, now white-haired, proposed again during a summertime stroll around the lake in the Hogwarts grounds. This time Minerva accepted. The marriage (cut tragically short, though it was destined to be) was a very happy one. The accidental death of Elphinstone from a Venomous Tentacula bite, three years into their marriage, was an enormous sorrow to all who knew the couple. Minerva could not bear to remain alone in their cottage, but packed her things after Elphinstone’s funeral and returned to her sparse stone-floored bedroom in Hogwarts Castle. Always a very brave and private person, she poured all her energies into her work, and few people - excepting perhaps Albus Dumbledore - ever realised how much she suffered. [x]

Omg, I want a love story in which my best friend calls me a racial slur and then proceeds to join a terrorist group based on killing people of my heritage and then accidentally endangers me and tries to bargain the lives of my child and the man I love away in exchange for me like some creepy bartering system and in causing my death decides to protect my son out of guilt but really spends his entire childhood being an asshole to him - OH WAIT, NO I DON’T.

Ginny doesn’t get much appreciation. She was one of the most skilled students in DA and she helped Neville and Luna bring it back to rebel against Death Eaters in her sixth year. Let’s not forget how she helped Gryffindor win the Quidditch Cup when she was only fifteen, and how did she manage to do that? BECAUSE SHE’S A GOD WHEN PLAYING QUIDDITCH. She was able to secretly practice with her brothers brooms, that shows how clever Ginny was to use them without getting caught. And even though she had an epic crush on Harry when she was younger, she decided she was done waiting for him to notice her and that moping around was pointless. So she dated other guys and wasn’t ashamed at all. Ginny was also accepted into the Slug Club during her fifth year. Slughorn only accepted witches and wizards who he thought were determined and talented muggle fuckers. GINNY EVEN SURVIVED LITERALLY EVERY BATTLE THAT WAS CAUSED BY HARRY AND VOLDEMORT AND PUT UP WITH MAJOR BULLSHIT.

Ginny Weasley is a sassy bamf and no one can tell me other wise goodbye.
