It was easy to assume, at first, that Harry and Hermione were destined to be together, but it wasn’t long before we realised who Harry truly belonged with: Moaning Myrtle. Just kidding – it’s Ginny, obviously.
Simply put, Ginny Weasley is the love of his life. Harry saw Ginny for the first time at King's Cross Station. However, they did not formally meet until a year later when Ginny joined Hogwarts just like all other Weasley's and Harry saved her from the Chamber of Secrets when she was possessed by a fragment of Lord Voldemort's soul, at which point it became blatantly clear that Ginny has a huge crush on Harry. Though the feeling moderated over time and she was always too shy and nervous around him to speak to him comfortably.
But it wasn’t long before Harry became more aware of her and began to notice her. Harry came to see her as she truly was: strong-willed, funny, stubborn, and compassionate. Also, there’s nothing like saving someone from the grip of the world’s Darkest wizard to cement a life-long bond.
Harry and Ginny's isn't just a story about a crush that turned into friends that turned into love, it's about trauma and their shared experience and fundamentally of a bond of empathy that turned into an everlasting bond.
But how well do you remember their journey? Are you ready to test your knowledge?
