Throughout the original Harry Potter Series, Ginny Weasley is on the fringe of the trio. She only learns about everything they have truly had to endure during the final three books, yet is still not entirely part of their inner world until the very end.
See her origin story beginning with her first year at Hogwarts. Find out what happened on the train after one of her brothers and Harry Potter missed it. What did Mr. Olivander tell her about her wand? What did the Sorting Hat whisper into her ear? Who did she befriend in her year? Most importantly, what exactly did Tom Riddle write to her that allowed her to become possessed and to release the basilisk?
This is created to be read in tandem with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Before Harry Potter ever comes for his first summer stay at the Burrow, Ginny already leads a full life. His dropping in one bright morning is not proof of a besotted girl, but rather the beginning of Ginny's ability to see the world from different perspectives.

Inspired by this fragment of verse:
We do lie beneath the grass
In the moonlight, in the shade
Of the yew-tree. They that pass
Hear us not. We are afraid
They would envy our delight
In our graves by glow-worm light.
