Forget Ginny Weasley - Hermione is the one for Harry!
Harry and Ginny are like James and Lily? Certainly not!

All Harinny supporters love to tell us how Harry and Ginny are a replica of James and Lily.
“Ginny and Lily share common traits” they say. Ask them to show a list of evidences – you wont find anything beyond “Both have red hair.”
    
Oh wow! What a big proof! Now this is why Ginny is Harry’s soulmate – she has red hair. So hair colour is enough to make her Lily? Hermione can dye her hair red guys – don’t forget that there is a whole range of colour dyes available. LOL!

Hermione is the one who is more like Lily if you ask me. Want to know how?

1.    Hermione and Lily are both muggle-borns
2.    Hermione and Lily are both intelligent and in the Slug club
3.    Hermione and Lily are both brave (in a way Ginny can never be)
4.    Hermione and Lily both stand up to their friends and tell them if they are wrong.
5.    Hermione and Lily both call Voldemort by his name
6.    Hermione and Lily are not into sports
7.    Hermione and Lily didn’t keep changing boyfriends at express speed
8.    Hermione and Lily realised their feelings for a guy they had known for a long time only later (if harmony had been the endgame – it would have been the same)
9.    Hermione and Lily have escaped Voldemort thrice in a split second’s chance
10.    Hermione and Lily would have both had sisters (underline would have – it was planned to be so but JKR changed it)

Now let us discuss each of this in a detailed manner:

Hermione and Lily are both muggle-borns

The most important and most prominent point ever! Hermione and Lily both share a common thing – being muggle borns. Both of them know what it is really like to be a muggle and then go on to the wizarding world and face the challenges that were thrown in front of them just because they were Mudbloods (as proud Pure bloods called them).Both have faced the insults from others. Lily from Snape and Hermione from Draco.


Hermione and Lily are both intelligent

Here we can tell that Lily was a tad bit more better than Hermione at Potions but that doesn’t hide the fact that both Hermione and Lily were top students. And not everyone can do as well as Hermione can they? It is a distinction. Lily was distinct from the rest and so is Hermione.


Hermione and Lily are both brave – in a way Ginny isn’t

Let me explain in which way. Ginny, Lily and Hermione are all brave . But Lily and Hermione are brave in another way. Who and all does Ginny snap against?
1.Her mother
2.Her brother
3.Harry
4.Once she told people off for calling Luna Loony
5. Zabini (which was completely unnecessary) and before any H/G shipper tells – “Leave him alone” doesn’t count!
Though we don’t know much about Lily’s life. We have this one instance where she stood against James (the person she hated the most) for Snape in front of a big crowd.
Lets take Hermione now : She doesn’t flare up unnecessarily. But
1.Ron many times
2.Draco (the slap was cool)
3.Rita
4.Percy
5.Mr.Crouch (for Winky) and many more people wherever necessary

Ginny is brave! Ginny is brave! But most times the prople she shows her bravery against are those whom she knows wont hit her back – her mom,ron,harry. But Hermione shows her bravery and courage in a level to which Ginny can never draw herself up to. The same goes for Lily also – she wasn’t fighting against a friend or family – but against a rich,spoilt,arrogant,conceited guy (sorry james fans don’t worry I don’t hate james) who had three sidekicks with him. And this happened in front of a whole lot of students.Hermione stood up for Winky and argued in front of a kwhole lot of Ministry officials. When was the last time Ginny did something like that? Oh yes – she hurted Ron to the core when he found her kissing Dean. She insulted him to the summit of rudeness. How brave of her to fight her brother like that – especially when he is so good at curses and aiming! This puts her bravery to the real perspective doesn’t it ? (sarcasm)


Hermione and Lily both stand up to their friends and tell them if they are wrong.

Lily stood up to Snape and told him he should not pursue what he was doing then. He should not be friends with evil people. All this Lily said against a guy freom whom everybody kept a distance from what things he did. Lily was not afrraid to tell him what she really felt. She stood up to him – told him in the face that what he was doing was wrong.

Hermione is the same. When Harry tells he want to go to the MOM to save Sirius Hermione does not shut her mouth and sit. She knows Harry is going to shout at her. But she tells him what she feels is right. True enough she does get paid back but she stands up to Harry. Something which Perfect Ginny (who according to Harinny fans is the only one who can put up with Harry) could not do. Where was she when all this happened? Standing in a corner having her mouth shut. Why couldn’t she contradict Harry then? Because she was the same hasty decision maker that Harry was – and that is why she certainly is not the one for Harry.

Hermione and Lily both call Voldemort by his name

Only Dumbledore. Members of the Order of the Phoenix, Lupin, Harry and Hermione call Voldemort by his real name. Ron does for some time but later he draws back too. Throughout the series there are no mentions of Ginny starting to use the name. I don’t think Harry wilkl be much impressed by a girl who is not even brave enough to call her enemy by his name. But Hermione does and when she tells his name for the first time we see Harry relaxed – that’s what he needs in his wife – someone who is as brave as him.

Hermione and Lily are not into sports

Harry and Ginny are into sports. But Hermio and Lily are not. So Harry/Hermione is more like James/Lily. I dotn know from where Ginny got her flying talent suddenly –but I don’t want to go deep into that matter which is not much necessary for this essay.



Hermione and Lily didn’t keep changing boyfriends at express speed

Ha! Coming to this point. Lily and Hermione were much more mature when it came to love life. They actually knew what they were doing. But sadly the same cannot be said for Ginny who acted very…..I don’t want to say. The rate at which she changed boyfriends seemed unhealthy. She cannot maintain a good relationship at all – because of her temparamental nature. And I really doubt she can be with Harry who can hardly control his rage.


Hermione and Lily realised their feelings for a guy they had known for a long time only later (if harmony had been the endgame – it would have been the same)

Lily started dating James in the seventh year (last year). Hermione started dating Ron in the sixth year (which is the last year for her at Hogwarts) and he was a guy she had known from her first year. Let it also be noted that Hermione like Lily travelled in the train with the person whom she was going to marry later (underline – travelled). In both these cases it would have been the same if Harmony had been chosen as the endgame. Then Harry would have dated Hermione in his sixth year and Hermione travelled in the same train as Harry during her first journey to Hogwarts.


Hermione and Lily have escaped Voldemort thrice in a split second’s chance

The most interesting point of all! As revealed by the Prophecy – Lily has escaped Voldemort thrice. And surprisingly it is the same in Hermione’s case too!

1.    Hermione escaped the Basilisk (summoned by the Heir of Slytherin – maybe Ginny but yet Ginny was possessed by Voldemort)
2.    Hermione escaped from Godric’s Hollow just in front of Voldemort
3.    Hermione for the third time escaped from the clutches of Voldemort when he was supposed to arrive at Malfoy manor.


Hermione and Lily would have both had sisters (underline would have – it was planned to be so but JKR changed it)

In the beginning Hermione was supposed to have a sister but JKR changed it. I f she had had a sister then this would be another point to add to the list!


So after discussing all these points in detail – here is the conclusion.
Harry looks like James outside
Harry is not like James in the inside
Ginny looks little like Lily ouside
Ginny is a little like Lily in the inside
Hermione does not look like Lily
Hermione is very much like Lily inside

Harry looks like James outside, not like James inside and Looks like Lily outside (only the hair) and a little like Lily inside – I’ll give it a rating of 6/10

Harry looks like James outside, is not like James inside and Hermione not like Lily outside (comeon you can always use a hair clour), like Lily inside – sounds nice doesn’t it? – I’ll give it a rating of 10/10

(all these are based on majority)

So here is my proof to show why Harry and Hermione are more like James and Lily than Harry and Ginny (highlight – than)

So here is another point sorted out guys! So next time someone tells you Ginny is more like Lily you can always give them the link to this page. Hope this article helps you Harmonians!
