Hello! I loved the idea of this comm, so I combed my favourites for great female-character-centric fics.

Fandom: Harry Potter
  • Ginny-centric fics, more or less categorized because I’m obsessive that way XD. I hope you don’t mind all of these are Harry/Ginny, since it’s my OTP (and most of what I read XD). All One-shots unless stated.
Two really old fics that stay amazing

Seekers by Irina  |  PG
When Ginny makes a portrait of Harry for an art assignment, the ways they see each other are altered forever. 

Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: romance, Jossed AU
Date: post-GoF

Rec: Characterization is a bit off, since it was written in 2002, and has been Jossed by canon. But it also shows great insight on how Ginny's character would develop, while making a wonderful character study of Harry as well. Also, it makes me want to draw the pictures Ginny does. XD

Unseen Interlude by Arabella   |  PG
Following the third task, Ginny takes a swim to get her mind off things.

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: angst, missing moment
Date: post-GoF

Rec: Another really old fic, but one not too Jossed. Great insight on the mind of Ginny, who for the first four books witnessed everything that happened to her friends (and specially Harry), but was always on the outside, and how hard that must have been for her.

Two angsty ficlets

Seven by andromeda3116  |  PG
"Do you believe in unforgivable sins?"

Characters: Ginny, and various others.
Genre: angst, character study

Rec: Extremely minimalistic, sad character study, both of Ginny and everyone else who appears.

9.8ms-2 by delicfcd   |  PG
Ginny can't stop falling. Flangst, as usual skewed towards the 'fl-'.

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: fluff, angst

Rec: An experimental fic, that plays with the concept of "falling" in love. Very pretty.

Two adventure/mystery fics

From Headline to Deadline
by magstopia   |  PG-13
A story Ginny's working on for the Daily Prophet turns up some unexpected results. (Long one-shot)

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: action, mystery/suspense

Rec: One of my favourite genres (and one that doesn't have many stories): Harry an Ginny: they fight crime! We see Ginny the investigative reporter, and her interactions with Harry and Ron are brilliant. Also, this fic has an engaging plot and lots of references to tiny canon details - which I love!

Brighter Than Sunshine by hgfan1111 (also found here)  |  M
The smoke clears from the Final Battle and the world is not the same. But even in the darkness, a light can still shine, leading lost souls home. AU Begun Post-HBP, disregards parts of DH. Canon pairings.

Characters: Ginny, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Draco, Tonks, Lupin and more.
Ship: Harry/Ginny and all the canon ones.
Genre: Jossed AU, drama, mystery
Length: multichapter (complete)

Rec: After the Final Battle, Harry and Ginny are presumed dead, and the spy Draco Malfoy is a hero of the war. However, in the muggle world, a young man that's been named Jack and a girl known as Emma each wake up in a hospital, with lots of injuries and no memory of their pasts...

Great presence of all the cast, ans some amazing Ocs. Harry and Ginny are very IC, and the mystery plot hooks you.

Three humour/crack fics (I'm not responsible of)

Stealth and Tracking by delicfcd  |  PG
Also known as omgwtfhottopic. An attempt to justify an IC Ginny shopping at Hot Topic. 

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: humour, romance

Rec: Well, with a premise like "an attempt to justify an IC Ginny shopping at Hot Topic", a fic can only go one of two ways: terrible or absolutely awesome. This one falls squarely in the "awesome" category.

Ginderella by Majick  |  PG-13
Poor Ginny Snape. Quite apart from having the daftest name in the history of the world, she's got a cruel step-father, two evil stepsisters and a bad case of unrequited love for Harry Potter, The Prince Who Lived.

Even worse, she's still got her Potions essay to write, and it's already twenty-five past thirty-two in the Hogwarts kitchens. Oh, yeah, and she's just been assigned the two most incompetent fairy godmothers in the history of the profession, at least one of whom is more concerned with political correctness than actually getting the job done and bringing about the bliss that is Twue Wuv.

Characters: Ginny, Harry, Hermione, Ron. 
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: AU, crackfic, romance
Length: two-shot

Rec: Written post-Order (although Neville’s character is of psychic perfection), and simply amazing. Any similarities with AVPM are really pure coincidence.

 Quick, Grab the Cheese Wheels and Run! by charmingly-holly (or here up to chapter 19)  |  PG-13
Ginny Weasely is stuck as Maid of Honor in two separate, highly unconventonal weddings. She's none too happy about the situation, as it only reminds her that she is Without a Wizard. To top things off, she's hungry, and she's not allowed to eat her hat... 

Characters: Ginny/Harry, Ron/Hermione, Luna and others
Genre: humour, romance
Length: 20 chapters

Exploded Green Chickens from Hell. Ernie's Great-Uncle Walter's Genuine Thestral-Hair Toupee. Those are the titles of only two of the chapters. Why aren’t you reading yet?

Truly, the writing is hilarious, and the fic gets this close to being a crackfic, yet, with all the odd things that happen to Ginny, it never crosses over to implausible... at least for wizards. It's a probably abandoned WIP, but it ends in a point that could more or less be an ending.

Four DH Missing Moments (chronologically because see above)

Ginny Weasley and the Pillow of Doom by opalish |  PG-13
PostHBP, oneshot. In which Ginny angsts over Harry's absence, Fred and George are complete prats, and weaponry is employed to fight brotherly oppression. Harry/Ginny.

Characters: Ginny, Fred, George
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: humour, romance, missing moment

Rec: Features wonderful Interaction between Ginny and Fred and George. Written post-HBP, it's been slighly Jossed.

Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies by fireworkfics | PG
The silence between you is calm and unhurried, even though the wind is nipping at your nose. A missing moment from Deathly Hallows.

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: missing moment, romance, flangst

Rec: This is a wonderful playful Ginny, who gets over her own sadness and fear to be a comfort for others.

The Twinge by MagEd  |  PG
Some say to follow your heart, others think it best to follow your head. And what does Ginny Weasley believe? A short history of Ginny Weasley and how she learned to follow the twinge, from her first kiss to the day when Harry almost died.

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: drama, romance, missing moment

Remembrance of Ourselves by Startide Risen | PG-13
Ginny stumbles through her first few hours in a world shaken and stirred. [Post Deathly Hallows]

Characters: Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter
Ship: Harry/Ginny
Genre: drama, romance
Length: two-shot

  • Fics about other HP female characters:
Mark by kellychambliss | PG
Minerva and the thousand points of light [Movie!canon fic]

Characters: Minerva McGonagall (genfic)
Genre: missing moment, drama, AU (movie!verse)
Rec: Minerva's POV on the scene with the lit wands raised from the HBP movie, and a bit of its backstory. Really interesting. 

Nest by Lovealwayshopes | PG
A quick one-shot from Hedwig's POV in the summer before second year. Written because Hedwig makes me happy.

Characters: Hedwig, Harry
Genre: flangst
Rec: So sweet and so sad. Hedwig is awesome.

Other fandoms:
  • Harry Potter/Discworld crossover
Professional duties by owlyscribblings | PG
Susan Sto Helit has a job to do. [Susan, McGonagall, Harry]
Characters: Susan, McGonagall, Harry [genfic]
Genre: Jossed AU, drama
Rec: Short and awesome. Also slightly Jossed.
  • Danny Phantom
Girl Power by Nylah-Fae | PG
"She kept expecting him to walk right in, smiling that goofy smile of his, act like nothing happened, like he hadn't scared her witless with his disappearing act." 

Characters: Sam Manson, Valerie Gray
Ship: Danny/Sam
Genre: action/adventure
Rec: Written as a companion to a fanart that’s no longer there, an action and adventure fic with a side of character study and some intriguing concepts.
  • Spider-Man (movie!verse)
Just a Face On a Train by katheryne | PG
After rescuing a train from Doc Ock's attack, Peter Parker found himself unmasked and indebted to those he had just saved. 4 months later, a train passenger again crosses paths with the young hero. Based on events from SpiderMan 2.

Characters: OC, Peter Parker [genfic]
Length: 5 chapters, complete
Genre: character study, adventure
Rec: This is a remarkable story in that the main character is an OFC, one of the passengers on the train Spider-man saved. A wonderful outsider-POV look at Peter, and proof that OC stories don’t mean Mary Sue.
