Abstract

The Harry Potter fan fiction "The Source," by Luckyducky7, centers on Ginny Weasley. This fan fic attempts to carve out a narrative for Ginny Weasley that allows her to be a heroine. This close reading of "The Source" attempts to highlight how it succeeds and how it fails in completing this task.
