* The way everything started. A single mum who was living on thanks to food stamps, as she is riding a train, gets an idea for a kid's novel, one where the main character is a young wizard who has just discovered what he really is and that he is a hero thanks to something that happened when he was a baby. She starts writing it, taking care of her family on her own while she writes a book where she works out her idea and expands on it, and finishes the first book in five years. She presents it to several agents, and the second one she tried it with accepts it. After eight publishing houses rejected the manuscript, a publishing house by the name of Bloomsbury decided to accept it and offered the writer an advance of 2,500 pounds. Fast forward twelve years, and the book turns out to be one of the highest successes ever in history of books, bringing kids back to reading, gets six sequels as the main character (and its readers) grow up, it also gets versioned into movies which are also amongst the most successful ever, and the single mum has become one of the richest people in the world thanks to the books. If that isn't awesome, tell me what it is.
** All the publishing houses who rejected her manuscript are probably kicking themselves in the ass right now.
*** Even more amazing thing is the latter books of the series are {{Doorstopper}}s, and the kids were ''still'' lining up for them even though the books look like the kid's lit versions of ''WarAndPeace''.

** It should also be noted that in spite of their poverty they never hold any spite towards Harry for his large inheritance; and treat him as though he's part of their own family, with Molly actually saying that he's as good as her son.

** Ron, together with Hermione [[spoiler: whom he married]], helped Harry through all his seven years, particularly in tracking down the Horcruxes and destroying one himself while saving Harry's life. He's skilled enough at chess to have beaten a chess set Transfigured by ''Minerva McGonagall'' at age eleven. He went on to become an Auror, mostly to spite those who said he couldn't, then left of his own accord and helped his brother George make Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes even ''more'' successful than it already was.

** Ginny led Dumbledore's Army during the hellish year of the Death Eaters' reign at Hogwarts, and only stopped because her parents withdrew her. She fought in the Battle of Hogwarts and survived, even though she was technically underage.

** Molly raised a family during the height of the First Wizarding War, and stood strong even as her friends and her own brothers were killed in action. She's clearly a gifted witch, even though she prefers to use her talents on practical household needs, she becomes a full-time member of the Order in the Second War, and [[spoiler: kills Bellatrix Lestrange in a duel because [[MamaBear she threatened her daughter]].]]

** Arthur has a lowly job at the Ministry but that's only because he loved it more than any promotion he could get, and when the second war against Voldemort starts and his preferences are not the priorities any more, he got some impressive promotions immediately.
** Molly [[spoiler: kills Bellatrix Lestrange in a duel.]]
** Bill and Charlie both got extremely risky jobs that requires really high qualifications, and both were apparently really good at it.
** Percy is able to make a quite fast career in the Ministry. It's worth noticing that, at the time, his family was associated with the two wizards the Ministry was depicting as their greatest enemies and that didn't slow him down one bit.

** Percy became a prefect and Head Boy and received twelve O.W.Ls and top scores on all his N.E.W.Ts, and is able to make a quite fast career in the Ministry. It's worth noticing that, Even though he rose up so quickly because they were using him, he is skilled enough to hold his own and Transfigure an adult wizard into a sea urchin at age twenty-one in the time, his family was associated with the two wizards the Ministry was depicting as their greatest enemies heat of a battle, and there is no denying that didn't slow him down one bit.he actually is very competent at his job.



** Ron, together with Hermione [[spoiler: who he married]] helped Harry through all his seven years, particullary in tracking down the Horcruxes and destroying one himself while saving Harry's life. He went on to become an Auror, mostly in spite to those who said he couldn't, than left and helped his brother George make Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes ever ''more'' successful than it already was.
** Ginny besides [[spoiler: marrying Harry]] became a succesful professional Quidditch player and then an analyst.
Keep in mind, through all the first five books the family is undergoing some deep finacial issues, but that doesn't stop Molly and Arthur from raising and sending to school no less than ''seven'' extremely competent wizards, all of whom (even Percy, despite his actions in the sixth and seventh books) are good-hearted people. They are amazing parents.
