Awesome essay on Why Harry Picked Ginny- book version. I read the whole thing, and I think it's worth a read for anyone. It explains J. Rowling's brilliance, and it also shows a good, healthy relationship, faults and all.
Lupin, Potter Black I was always frustrated when reading the book that Harry fixated on Sirius as a father figure so much when Remus was right there. Remus was kind and wise, whereas Sirius wanted Harry to be James.
