    Ginny Didn't Go To Myrtle's Bathroom To Get Rid Of The Diary

    From Redditor u/aaronhowser1:

    The reason Ginny threw the diary into Myrtle's toilet. Ginny wasn't just throwing the diary into any old toilet just to get rid of it, she was resisting mere feet away from the entrance to the Chamber. She overcame the possession for just long enough to throw it and run away, she didn't go there to dispose of it!

    From Redditor u/medalofme:

    That's actually very in character for Ginny. She's always been the most practical of the HP characters. In OotP, she recognizes that the music box is dangerous and slams it shut while everyone else just stares. Ginny would survive a horror movie.

    From a Redditor:

    I always assumed she dumped it there because nobody used that bathroom, but when you actually think about it, there must've been better places to dispose of if it she didn't want anyone finding it. The fact that it was just thrown in a cubicle known to be haunted by a ghost indicates that it wasn't a thought out plan. And this is the perfect explanation!

    Ginny's Hand On The Weasley Clock Should Have Pointed To Mortal Peril During 'Chamber Of Secrets'

    From Redditor u/lapaleja:

    In CoS, all the time Ginny was possessed by the Horcrux in Tom Riddle's diary, her hand on Molly Weasley's magical clock should have pointed to "Mortal Peril." In HBP, Molly says that since the return of Voldemort, all hands have been pointing at "mortal peril" at all times. With that logic in mind, her clock should have shown that her daughter was in mortal peril for a good part of her first year at Hogwarts.

    Ginny Was Affected By The Dementors

    From Redditor u/RobbieNewton:

    We know that a Dementor does a security check on the Hogwarts Express, implied to be as it passes the grounds threshold towards Hogsmeade. We all know how Harry is affected, how either he flashes back, or the Horcrux resonates to Voldemort's attack. But Ginny, Ginny is overlooked. Ginny is shaking in the corner, affected almost as much as Harry and it just clicked why. She is likely flashing back, being forced to relieved when she was possessed by Tom Riddle's Diary, forced to relive killing the roosters. Forced to relive what happened to Mrs Norris (Ginny is fond of cats) and everyone else.

    There Was A Clue In Ginny’s Valentine’s Poem That She Was Under Voldemort’s Influence

    From Redditor u/stephm524:

    Ginny’s poem to Harry offers a clue that she was under a dark influence. The last line is “the hero who conquered the dark lord.” In the series the only people to ever refer to Voldemort as the dark lord are death eaters or witches and wizards that sympathized with Voldemort, like the Blacks. The Weasleys absolutely would have never called him that and thus would have never taught that to Ginny. Tom Riddle in the diary was likely referring to Voldemort as the dark lord when talking to Ginnny, to the point where she started thinking it was normal.
