How the friendship has progressed each year in each book.
Potter and the Philosopher's (Sorcerer's) Stone
hadn't met Ron when the book began and Ginny hadn't started Hogwarts yet, so there was no bonding that year. However, Ron
making friends with Hermione in his first year was essential to Hermione/Ginny's friendship since they met through Ron.
Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
enters Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor. She and Hermione are now both in the same school and the same house.
Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
|Friendship bonds begin to be hinted at between the
Hermione, Harry, and the Weasleys meet up in Diagon
Alley. Female bonding moment is mentioned - the girls are said to be giggling together as Mrs. Weasley tells them a story
about a love potion she made as a girl.
Hermione comforts Ginny on Train after the Dementor
Potter and the Goblet of Fire
|Hermione comes to stay with the Weasleys for the
World Cup and the rest of the summer. She shares a room with Ginny at the Burrow and they share a tent at the Quidditch
World Cup (since they are the only girls with Mr. Weasley's group they're alone in thier tent). Over this summer break
the girls clearly spend a lot of time together, especially while the boys do the male bonding thing.
Hints that Hermione and Ginny hang out in and around
Hogwarts (without the Boys) begin to surface. For example, Ginny is the there when Neville ask Hermione to be his date for
the Yule Ball. Hermione says no because she has a date and Ginny gets asked.
Secret sharing seems to have begun and a certain
trust has formed. Ginny is the only one who knows Hermione's date's identity until the ball and refuses to share.
When Boys (Harry and Ron) abandon the Yule Ball,
Hermione and Ginny are still thier with thier dates. Since Hermione knew about Micheal the following year, they proably interacted
during the Ball.
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
|Hermione becomes a summer guest of the Weasleys again,
this time at Headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix. She shares a room with Ginny again and spends a lot of time
with her over the summer.
Both bond with Tonks over the summer.
Hermione abandons a Christmas Ski trip with her parents
and returns to 12 Grimmauld Place (Order of the Phoenix headquarters) where she spends the Holiday with Ginny (who
she again shares a room with), Ron, Harry and the twins.
They all go to visit the Hospitalized Mr. Weasley
during the holiday. After the visit, Ginny joins the trio (Hermione, Ron, and Harry) as they take a self-tour of St. Mungos
and meet up with former D.A.D.A. teacher, Gilderoy Lockhart. They also meet Neville's parents, who are on the same ward, and
Neville's grandmother, who accompanied him on the visit.
Ginny (along with Luna and Neville) follows the Trio
on thier end of the year adventure to the Ministry of Magic.
Potter and the Half Blood Prince
|Hermione returns to the Burrow for another Summer
where she hangs out with Ginny and Ron. They share a mutual distaste for Ginny's new sister-in-law to be, Fleur (and secretly
call her Phelgm). Once Harry shows up, the two girls and two boys (Ron and Harry) spend the summer as a happy foursome.
Both worry about Harry taking intructions from a
mysterious person in a book who goes by the name of the Half-Blood Prince.
Hermione gets annoyed with Cormac talking bad about
Ginny (and Ron) during Quidditch try-outs so she confunded him with her wand (secretly) during his go at try-outs.
The friendship has it's first known spat when Ginny
jumps to Harry's defense while Hermione is badgering him about using one of the Half-Blood Prince's spells so irresponsibly.
We later find out that awhile back Hermione had advised
her to date around in the hopes it would allow her to be her 'true self' around Harry. Eventually, Hermione catches on to
the fact Harry Potter now has a crush on Ginny. In her own little sly way she begins to drop nuggets of information on the
state of Ginny's romantic life. She is sure to inform him when the current relationship ends. When her match making game finally
bears fruit (and Harry and Ginny kiss) she's BEAMING. There time as boyfriend/girlfriend compliments the trio well as they
slide easily into the role of the happy foursome that hung out together over the summer.
We both love the friendship bewteen Hermione and Ginny. They are so cute together and always seems to be
around each other if something goes wrong or they are always chatting. It's funny that Hermione is the one who tells Ginny
to have fun with boys and maybe then Harry will find her hot, its a shame Ginny cant say the same to Hermione about Ron!
