    Molly Weasley

    I usually have no problem writing Molly, but I have run into a problem. I know she is very protective of her children, and she is as involved in their lives as they allow. My main question is what would she threaten Harry with if he touched Ginny inappropriately? My fic is rated 3rd to 5th years, so I have a bit of leeway, but not much. This fic is book 7 disregarded, so I can't use anything about how she dealt with Bella. (though it has already been suggested in PM)

    Molly

    For me, I think Molly adores Harry as much as she loves the other Weasley's. So I think she'd react the same way as if she found any other children doing it - at first I think anger but then she'd come around to accepting that they were growing up after all.

    In all I think how inappropriately Harry touched Ginny would come into it. If Molly knew they were in love, then I think she'd accept it. If however, she thought it was just teenage boy hormones then she'd have no problem, I think, in having a go at both parties.


    Didn't Arthur and Molly marry young? Hmmm. . . I will go away and have a think.

    Hope I added something of interest.

    I'm now wanting to know what everyone else thinks!

    I feel I must be a little more specific in what I was asking this time.

    Harry and Ginny will be spending a lot of time together alone... Molly is warning them, especially Harry, on the way to behave.

    I do like the thoughts Elle mentioned, but I need something a bit more specific than generalizations.

    Thanks for the thoughts though.

    Any other suggestions?

    I think she should stress how disappointed she and Arthur will be if she finds out that anything inappropriate has happened. Her opinion is incredibly important to Harry, as she's the closest thing to a mother he's ever had, and I think she knows that.

    As to his punishment...maybe a spell that would prevent him from touching Ginny in any way, shape or form until she decides to lift it? Like a magical barrier or something.

    I also think that, after warning Harry, she should go to Ginny and be like, "Now, don't be afraid to come to me if anything DOES happen, though it had better not, and be careful." I don't think she should pass out condoms or contraception spells, but I think she should emphasize the "be careful" aspect very much. In this separate talk to Ginny, she should probably try to scare Ginny a bit about what it would be like if she had a baby.

    I mostly agree with this except for where she seems to favour Harry over Ron and the twins rather obviously.

    Granted, his "being the Boy-Who-Lived" (and might I add, Harry had NOTHING to do with that) more or less gave her children a safe world to grow up in, so I can sort of understand it, but I think she'd be more likely to berate Ginny than Harry.

    Yes, they eloped. This is discussed in Half-Blood Prince when Molly's saying that Bill and Fleur are "too young" to get married. (Bill at the time was 25.)

    I don't think Molly favors Harry over her own children. She just knows that he's in a lot more danger than everyone else and he doesn't have parents to look out for him. She may seem to scold her own children and not Harry, but he is not her son, so she cannot really discipline him. It wouldn't be in her character to punish him. She would probably just go out of her way to keep them apart, kind of like what she did in DH with the Harry, Ron and Hermione.

    She would definitly berate Ginny for allowing Harry to do such a thing to her in the first place. Ginny is Molly's one and only daughter, so she holds a very special place in her heart. She would definitely give most of the yelling to Ginny, and then maybe tell Arthur to have a sit down with Harry, or something along those lines.

    I must disagree with that as well. Molly doesn't necessarily favour him. She may love him like her own children, but she definitely does not love him more. She pities him, per se, because he never had a mother to love him and she is more than willing to take the position. But her children are her children, and she wouldn't ever put another boy above that love.

    Okay, how's this...

    Harry and Ginny will be spending time alone at the house in Godric's Hollow...
    Harry looks to Mrs. Weasley who has made several comments on the fact that they will be alone. "Mrs. Weasley, you know I wouldn't do anything to Ginny. I love her, and I promise to treat her as if you were standing right there." Harry held his hands out to his sides to indicate no touching.

    "I believe you dear," Molly said as she laid her hand on Harry's cheek, "I just want you to know I have a spell that will show me everywhere your hands have been on my daughter when you bring her home in the evenings." Ignoring the shocked look on both of their faces, she continued, "It doesn't matter what cleaning spells you use either, I can still see where your hands have been."

    Harry and Ginny had known Molly was a great witch, she had been part of the Order after all, but to know something like that amazed them.
    That is something I've been working on, but I'm still not sure if it would come across the right way.

    In this story, Molly doesn't kill Bella, but she is part of the final confrontation with Voldemort.

    If this doesn't seem to work, let me know what you think will.

    Thanks so much all of you who have helped so far. I will definitely give credit in the A/N for the chapter this goes in.

    Does the spell actually exist or is she just scaring them?

    That's really not a very trusting thing to say to either of them, and if she doesn't trust them, why is she letting them be alone at Godric's Hollow in the first place?

    I was actually thinking of making one up to do what she's saying.

    I think it could just be a scare tactic. She really does trust them, especially since Dobby will be there the entire time, and she can pop in at any moment.

    It's like I said before though, I usually don't have a problem writing Molly, because I'm a mom of boys, but when it comes to being a mom of a girl... I'm lost.

    Either the spell, or scare tactic? She could do a mumbo jumbo spell that doesn't even do anything, just to make sure they think she actually can do it.

    I am so lost. I am scaring myself.
