Deathly Hallows, Chapter Twenty

As Harry, Ron, and Hermione stand on a hillside overlooking the Burrow, Harry thinks of Ginny and how he’s closer to her than he’s been since he went on the run. And as he does, I always wonder myself what Ginny is thinking when she thinks of Harry. After all, when he broke up with her and told her that it was because he didn’t want Voldemort to use her to get to him, her response was a defiant “What if I don’t care?” And everything we’ve seen of Ginny leads me to believe that she doesn’t care, that she wants to be part of the fight. Which must add quite another layer of complexity to what is certainly an emotionally turbulent year for her. She’s terrified for Harry, she’s terrified for her family, she’s determined to fight, and there must be some bitterness over the fact that Harry and Ron and Hermione are off pursuing a secret mission while she’s stuck at Hogwarts. Too bad we don’t have a companion book, Ginny Weasley and the Deathly Hallows… though of course in the end I’d be wishing for dozens of different variations from the perspectives of different characters….

  1. Not sure if it’s just me getting to this link too early or something else, but I get an error message every time I try to access the post itself. Hope that doesn’t last too long!

  2. Hmmm… I guess I’m lost too! Can’t wait to read more when the link is linked.

  3. I was so excited to see the new post but the link is broken. Hope it gets fixed soon.

  4. Same problem.

    But in response to your post, I dearly wish we’d gt a companion book all abotu the reesistance at Hogwarts. From Ginny’s POV, or Neville’s, or Luna’s, or even Snape’s. I guess that’s what fanficiton is for.

  5. Broken link :(
    I don’t think we need a companion book for every character, but just to know *what happened* at Hogwarts in more detail would be really nice to know. Actually, in some sense, an objective book would be the best. We don’t want just one character’s perspective; like hpboy13 said, we want to know what happened in everyone’s life.

    I wonder if the movie will show more of Hogwarts than the book? After all, the actors have been hired, they might as well use them to their full extent.

  6. This chapter has been made unplottable, so we must wait until Josie lifts the spell :)

  7. ^like :P
    (assuming this were facebook)

  8. Sorry about the broken link everyone! I spaced and did everything to update the new page except make it live. So I was the only one who could see it. :-P Unplottable indeed! Anyway, it’s fixed now, as you’ve probably seen.
