10:53 am - Finally, my account of the Ball
Dear Diary,
I'm ever so sorry that I haven't been around. After the ball, everything was so busy. The teachers decided to pile the work on again. But now it is Saturday, and I've already finished my homework. (I'm turning into Hermione!) That said, I'll tell all about the ball today.

First of all, we all had an absolutely lovely time! Everything was so much fun. It was wonderful from the very beginning. There we were, Me, Hermione, Lavendar, and Parvati, locked up in the dormitory. Parvati worked on Hermione, and Lavendar was with me. First, Lavendar did my hair. She used a spell to warm a portion of her wand as if it were what the Muggles call a "curling iron". (I wonder if Dad has one of those.) Then she took sections of my hair, twisted them to the top, and then she curled each section. When she was done curling, she put little blue silk flowers in it. It was so pretty! When Lavendar was finished, she used a charm to keep it from falling down, and then she started on my makeup. Since I'm so pale already, Lavendar didn't feel the need for powder. She put shimmery eyeliner on my eyes and then curled my eyelashes. Then she dusted my cheeks with pretty pink blush and put matching colour on my lips. In the meantime, I was glancing over at Hermione and Parvati. Parvati was doing a wonderful job. She managed to make Hermione's hair sleek and shiny without Sleekeasy's! So then, Lavendar had a look at my nails and decided that I needed a manicure. She clipped and filed and polished. When she was finished, I was amazed. They were long and smooth and painted silver. By the time Lavendar was finished with me, Hermione was already in her robes, and Parvati was also changing, so I decided to go ahead and change. My robes were still perfectly pressed, and Lavendar's spell worked just fine because after I had pulled them over my head, my hair was still in perfect condition. I was watching Parvati get herself ready when I heard shouts comming from downstairs. Soon we could hear Ron and Harry yelling from the bottom of the stairs, telling us to hurry up and that they would leave without us. Hermione smiled evily and said "Watch this, girls,", and do you know what she did next, Diary? She snuck out and changed the boys' robes to a girls' colour! Harry's turned pink, and Ron's became purple! (Let me just say that he looks almost as bad in purple as he does in maroon.) Then Harry tried to sneak up the stairs to the girls dormitory. However, the poor thing forgot that when a boy tries to sneak into the girls room, the stairs turn into a slide, and he went tumbling backwards! Lavender,Parvati and I had been watching them from the doorway, and we were shrieking with laughter. I actually wiped a tear from the corner of my eye! Then I decided to help Hermione out. I pointed my wand at the boys, turning their robes back to normal. They actually looked quite nice themselves. Harry still wore the same green ones, only I think he might have had them let out since he's grown. Ron's were a lovely royal blue. They really brought out his eyes. I knew Hermione would be impressed. We ducked back inside the room to finish getting ready.

When Hermione and I were finished, Lavendar and Parvati weren't quite ready, so Mione and I left. When we reached the stairs, Harry and Ron looked up and just stared for a moment. Harry ruffled his hair, and Ron's ears turned pink. Hermione and I grinned at each other. "Ready then?" said Harry and we nodded. Harry held his arm out to me, and I took it. The four of us went down the hallway together making our way down the the great hall. We passed Draco Malfoy and Millicent Bullstrode on the way there. Millicent's robes were quite unflattering. They were mint green and about two sizes too small. (Funny, I always saw Millicent with Crabbe or Goyle. I guess her strong resemblance to them was too frightening!) Crabbe and Goyle followed with Pansy Parkinson and Blaise Zabini behind. (I guess when it comes to sticking with the purebloods, as they're all so concerned, there's really no such thing as good tastes, anymore.) Malfoy raised one of his eyebrows at us, "Well isn't that sweet. Potty and the Weas-" he started to say. When Professor McGonagall started making her way towards them, he stopped, and then he, Millicent, and the rest of the cronies walked away. Professor McGonagall nodded to them and gave them a small smile and proceeded into the great hall. WHen she had her back turned, I had a brilliant idea. I took out my wand. "Watch this..." I whispered. I aimed it at the back of Millicent's robes and, using a clever cutting charm, cut a very large hole in the back of that hideous mint green mess! Hermione was actually about to help Millicent! However, our laughing got the best of her, and we dragged her into the Great Hall.

We sat down at the tables and began eating. The food was absolutely delicious. We talked and laughed the whole time. Everything was so much more comfortable than it had been last year. Ron was exceptionally happy. I would have thought he would have felt under pressure, being with Hermione and all. I was really surprised at Harry. He was quite calm and had a good time. Then the food began disappearing off the tables and a band that had been setting up earlier began to play. I couldn't wait any longer, so I grabbed Harry by the hand and dragged him to the dance floor! Harry was a wonderful dancer. I couldn't tell last year since he only danced with Parvati the one time. He spun me around, twirled me, and dipped me as if he had been dancing for years. I had to ask him, "Harry Potter, where did you learn to dance so well?" Harry blushed a bit. "You weren't the only one who had help from Lavendar getting ready for this ball, Gin," he answered. "She gave me some private lessons." I pulled him a little closer. "Well, she did a wonderful job," I told him. He smiled at me, and we kept dancing. I managed to look over at Hermione and Ron just in time to see Hermione give Ron a kiss on the cheek. Then it was time to trade partners. The next thing I knew, Lee had grabbed me by the hand and was spinning me all over the place! Hermione was dancing with Harry, Fred was with Alicia, George danced with Angelina, and Ron was with Katie. Everyone got to dance with everyone else at least one. Fortunately, I didn't have to dance with any Slytherins. Most of the boys were surprising good dancers. Every now and then, however, I caught a glimpse of Neville stepping all over poor Susan Bones's toes.

Before we knewit, the music had ended, and everyone was making their was out of the hall. The four of us cutted to another door, crossed the lawns, and went to sit by the lakeshore. It was so beautiful. The moon and stars were all reflecting off the lake, and the four of us were so happy. We laughed and talked some more, but then it was very late, and we decided to go inside. Harry and I walked first, and then Ron and Hermione left. At first, we didn't say much, but then Harry tucked his hand into mine and pulled me closer. I rested my head on his shoulder and squeezed his hand. It was so lovely that we didn't feel the need to speak. At one point, I think I might have giggled, but Harry didn't seem to mind. When we finally reached the common room, Harry then pulled me close and KISSED ME! I mean, really kissed me on the mouth! I had no idea what to do, so I just rested my hands on his shoulders and kissed back. We stayed like that for what seemed like forever, until we heard "Jeez, what is it with you people?!" coming from Dean. Apparently, Ron and Hermione has been doing the same thing just outside the portrait hole. Harry and I broke apart, and then we girls said our good-nights. Then we made our way to the stairs. We reached the top when Hermione stopped us. She whipsered something, and we all grinned as her and nodded. "Hey Guys?" Lavender called out to the boys from the stairs. They looked back at us. "We forgot one more thing..."Parvati added. "ANd that would be?" Seamus asked. "THIS!" we four girls yelled, pointing our wands at them and shouting Hermione's colour-changin charm. The results were...a bit scary.
Ron's robes turned bright yellow, Harry's turned puke green, Dean's became tie-dyed, and poor Seamus got the worst of it: hot pink! We stayed around to see the horrified looks on their faces, and then we ran up to our rooms in peals of laughter.

And now, Diary, I think I will head to the Common Room and see if anyone wants to take a walk or something. Until we meet again

Love,
Ginny

4:42 pm - The ball is almost here!
Dear Diary,
The ball is this Friday! Can you believe it??? It still feels as though it was just announced yesterday. I'm so excited I can barely sit still. At the same time, though, I'm a little nervous. Last year it wasn't that big a deal. I mean, because Neville's just a friend and all. But this time it's Harry! I'm so worried I'll make a fool of myself and then he'll never talk to me again. Then again I could be overreacting. I probably am. I know that's what Mum and Hermione would say. I'll just stop talking now before I get too carried away. More later!

Love,
Ginny

2:47 pm - Walking in the clouds
Dear Diary,
Everything is wonderful lately. Because of the ball, the teachers have decided to go lightly on the homework. Well, except for Snape. Why can't that man just stop being an overgrown git just for the time being? I'll bet he got dumped at a ball once.

Everyone seems to be in a great mood lately. Some more than others. You know, the other day I took a wrong turn, and I ended up in an old classroom that no one uses anymore. That is, they don't use it for classes. Now it's become the snogging room! Fred and Angelina were in there. They were a bit embarrassed. I don't blame them. Harry's been an absolute gentleman lately. He walks me to class all the time, and even carries my books sometimes, and he sits next to me at meals. Now he hasn't tried to hold my hand yet, but that's all right. He's new at this sort of thing. I'm sure he'll warm up by the time the ball rolls around.

I must go now diary. Will write more later.

Love,
Ginny

3:03 pm - I don't believe it!!!
Dear Diary,
Not five minutes after I left, Harry came up to me out of nowhere. First he said hello, and we talked for a bit. Then, before I knew it he said, "Er, Ginny, will you...go to the ball with me?" Well, the initial shock was a bit overwhelming, so much that I couldn't talk right away. Instead, I just smiled and gave a very enthusiastic nod. Then he said, "All right, great! Well, I'd love to stay, but I've got to get back to the pitch. See you later." Then he left.

ISN'T THIS EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love,
Ginny

current mood: excited

2:51 pm - ...and more preparations!
Dear Diary,
Everyone around here has gone absolutely Ball-crazy! George finally decided to ask Katie, so that means Lee is going with Alicia. Everywhere I turn, I hear something like, "Wait until you see my robes!" or "Will you do my hair?" or "I can't believe you're going with her!" They're even more excited than they were last year, and there were people from two other schools then!

Hermione said she and Ron were going to talk to Harry soon. I think I'll go find her now and see what happened.

Love,
Ginny

7:44 pm - More preparations
Dear Diary,
I was talking to my friend Luna Lovegood the other day. Luna is another fourth year, but she lives in Ravenclaw. Some people think she's loony, but I don't think that at all. In fact, I admire her. She follows her own path and doesn't care what other people think. I wish I were as confident as she. Anyway, when I first met her, she said she wasn't really into the dancing thing. (On a similar note, she told me that Padma spent the rest of the night of last year's ball complaining about Ron not dancing with her.) Well, it just goes to show how quickly a girl can change her mind. We were sitting in the library, and she told me that Anthony Goldstein, the Ravenclaw prefect, asked her to the ball! Isn't that nice? Luna has been acting as though she's walking on air the last three days. She keeps coming up to me saying things like, "Ginny, I need dress robes!" "Ginny, what jewelry should I wear?" "Ginny, who's going to do my makeup? I don't know the first thing about it!" Well, I told her to ask Padma because if Padma is anything like her sister Parvati, she'll go absolutely giddy when Luna asks her.

In other news, still nothing from Harry. One other good thing has happened, though. If I don't go with Harry, at least I won't have to worry about going with Neville again. He's going with Susan Bones from Hufflepuff. Don't get me wrong, Neville is very nice. It's just that he hearly broke two of my toes after stepping on them all night! Maybe he's learned to be a better dancer, and Susan won't get the same thing. Oh, and Fred finally asked Angelina Johnson to go with him again. They make such a lovely couple! I know Mum would approve of her. George, on the other hand, can't decide whether to ask Katie Bell or Alicia Spinnett. He says it's no big deal. He worked out this thing with Lee Jordan, the twins' best friend, that whichever girl George goes with, Lee can go with the other. I guess that's fair enough.

That's about it today, Diary. I will see you later.

Love,
Ginny

4:35 pm - Making plans
Dear Diary,
I asked Lavendar and Parvati if they would be willing to do my hair and makeup for the Ball, and they were more than thrilled! I should have known they would say yes. Asking Lavendar and Parvati anything about makeup and hair is the greatest thing to them! They're all giddy about the Ball. Lavendar is going with Seamus again, and Parvati is going with Dean. I remember Ron saying that he thought that Dean liked her. Anyway, the only thing I need now is a date. Hermione said she would drop anvils on Harry if she had to. Mione, I don't think they're heavy enough!

Love,
Ginny

9:27 pm - There's going to be another ball!
Dear Diary,
I'm so excited right now that I can hardly stand it! First of all, Professor McGonagall recently announced that there is going to be another ball! Hurray! Now I can actually go at my own will and not because someone in fourth year or more asked me. Now, second, RON ASKED HERMIONE AND SHE SAID YES!!! Can you believe it? My brother finally gave up his arrogant-jealous-prat act and asked her himself! Thank goodness. Oh, but now if only I could go with Harry. Hermione said he saw me twirling in my new robes in Hgosmeade and that he thought I looked pretty. Did I tell you about my robes? Oh, they're so pretty. They're dark blue velvet, and they're so comfortable! I want to wear them 24 hours a day. Maybe I could ask Lavendar and Parvati to do my hair and makeup. They did a good job that last time when Hermione and I went to them. By the way, I don't think I'll have to worry about Michael. I overheard him ask Padma Patil to the Ball while I was in the library the other day, and she said yes. Padma is the girl that Ron went to the ball with last year. The prat wouldn't dance with her one time! All he could do was sit and sulk while staring at Hermione and Viktor. (Sorry, Mione, but it's true.) Anyway, diary, I should go before I get too carried away.

Love,
Ginny

Dear Diary,

Something has come up, and I don't know what to do! Michael Corner from Ravenclaw asked me out the other day. I met him at the Yule Ball last year. He went with a fourth-year Hufflepuff, and he was just a third-year. Anyway, we got to talking, and he seemed nice, but I just wanted to be friends! I had no idea he had other intentions. What am I supposed to do? I'm going to talk to Hermione at breakfast. She'll know what to do. Wish me luck!

11:18 am
Dear Diary,
I can't believe what I did yesterday! It all started when I bumped into Hermione at the library. I was doing research for that ridiculous Wolfsbane essay that Snape assigned us. Anyway, we got to talking, as usual, and before long, we were spilling everything. First of all, I finally got her to admit that she likes my brother Ron. In response, I gave her the best news I could think of: he likes her back. He talked about her all summer. I thought I'd go insane! Anyway, after that, I helped her write a break-up letter to Viktor. (I had some help from those Muggle romance novels that Dad bought for Mum.) After that, we got to talking about Harry, and I ended up spilling myself all over her! I told how much I still loved him, but that even if I am growing up, I'll always be Ron's little sister to him. Hermione insisted that that wasn't true and that she would take me shopping to change his mind. Later we're going to ask Lavendar and Parvati to help us with makeup. I'm very excited about it! I'd give anything to make this the year that Harry notices me. Well, maybe not anything. Anyway, Diary, I must go now because the Hogsmeade carriages will be here soon, and Hermione insists that I sit with her, Harry, and Ron. I hope I don't make a total fool out of myself.

Love,
Ginny

4:27 pm - A new day
Hello, diary. This is the first entry I have written. Today I want to tell you a little about myself.

Name: Virginia Christine Weasley (but everyone calls me Ginny)
Age: 14
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 110 lbs.
Hobbies: Writing, reading, watching Quidditch
School: Hogwarts
Year: 4
House: Gryffindor

I am in my fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I live at a house called the Burrow with my family. I have six older brothers: Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred and George (they're twins), and Ron. Bill, Charlie, and Percy have all finished school and have different jobs. Bill works for the Gringotts Wizard Bank branch in Egypt. Charlie works with dragons in Romania, and Percy works for the Ministry of Magic, just like my dad. Fred and George are seventh years, and Ron is in his fifth. We all live in Gryffindor House, just as our older brothers and our parents did.

As much as I love my family, there is one person I love even more. His name is Harry Potter. To everyone else, he is the Boy Who Lived. To me, he is much more. He is Ron's best friend, but that is not why I love him either. I just don't know what it is. Of course, part of it is because he saved my life in the Chamber of Secrets during my first year. But that's a story for another day. He has stayed at my house many times, and every time he comes, I just freeze up. I will admit that I am better about it now than I used to be. However, inside I still hope for the day when I can make him see how much he means to me. I have also recently become close friends with Hermione Granger. She is a fifth year Gryffindor, and she is also best friends with Harry and Ron. She is very smart, and I admire her very much. We have become each other's confidantes the last few months. She is the one who has introduced me to such things as computers and technology. She is the reason I write in this journal right now.

I'm feeling a bit tired now, so I will end this. It has been fun telling you about myself, Diary. We will speak again soon.

Love,
Ginny

current mood: tired
