From breaking into broomsheds to Hungarian Horntail tattoos, we remember ten times the youngest Weasley sibling was the Queen of sass…

That time she reminded Harry that he wasn’t the only one who’d faced Voldemort …

I didn’t want anyone to talk to me,’ said Harry, who was feeling more and more nettled.

‘Well, that was a bit stupid of you,’ said Ginny angrily, ‘seeing as you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels.’

Harry remained quite still as the impact of these words hit him. Then he turned on the spot to face her.

‘I forgot,’ he said.

‘Lucky you,’ said Ginny coolly.

That time she truly excelled at tattoo-related humour …

‘Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it’s true you’ve got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest.’

Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them.

‘What did you tell her?’

‘I told her it’s a Hungarian Horntail,’ said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. ‘Much more macho.’

‘Thanks,’ said Harry, grinning. ‘And what did you tell her Ron’s got?’

‘A Pygmy Puff, but I didn’t say where.’

That time we heard how she got so good at Quidditch…

‘Come on, Ginny’s not bad,’ said George fairly, sitting down next to Fred.

‘Actually, I dunno how she got so good, seeing how we never let her play with us.’

‘She’s been breaking into your broom shed in the garden since the age of six and taking each of your brooms out in turn when you weren’t looking,’ said Hermione from behind her tottering pile of Ancient Rune books.’

That time she channelled her mother and silenced all boyfriend criticism with one look…

‘… ‘But you’re moving through boyfriends a bit fast, aren’t you?’

Ginny turned to look at him, her hands on her hips. There was such a Mrs Weasley-ish glare on her face that Harry was surprised Fred didn’t recoil.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

That time she cast a Bat Bogey Hex and accidentally got invited to the Slug Club…

'How come you ended up in there, Ginny?’

‘He saw me hex Zacharias Smith,’ said Ginny, ‘you remember that idiot from Hufflepuff who was in the DA? He kept on and on asking about what happened at the Ministry and in the end he annoyed me so much I hexed him – when Slughorn came in I thought I was going to get detention, but he just thought it was a really good hex and invited me to lunch! Mad, eh?’

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


That time she nicknamed the beautiful Veela-descended Fleur Delacour, Phlegm

‘Fleur’s not stupid, she was good enough to enter the Triwizard Tournament,’ said Harry.

‘Not you as well!’ said Hermione bitterly.

‘I suppose you like the way Phlegm says “’Arry”, do you?’ asked Ginny scornfully.

‘No,’ said Harry, wishing he hadn’t spoken, ‘I was just saying, Phlegm – I mean, Fleur –’

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

That time she shared some Ravenclaw-worthy wisdom with Harry …

‘The thing about growing up with Fred and George,’ said Ginny thoughtfully, ‘is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.’
