Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Had Ginny simply told any adult about Riddle, she (and Hogwarts) would have spared a lot of anguish. There were moments when Ginny would have gone to an adult, but Riddle was able to stop her, first by playing to her sympathy, and then, when he reveals his true colors, terrorizing her by claiming that she and her family would be punished if she told the truth of what happened.


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Riddle is certainly dangerous and manipulative, but he's not as smart as he would like to believe. He utterly underestimates Ginny's intelligence. [[spoiler: This partly ends up his undoing, since he constructs fake backstory was so weak, Ginny only had to ask a few questions to poke holes in it. And when Ginny does get wise, his plans are setback by her attempts at resistance]], leading him to basically throw a tantrum.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: On the moments where Ginny completely outsmart him, Riddle's response is dead silence, followed by violent threats.

* GoodIsNotDumb/GuileHero: Ginny. Despite all of Tom's insults and snipes, she was able to delay Riddle's plans by several months, first by manipulating the concern of her friends and family, and through sheer willpower.

Added DiffLines:

* SavedByCanon: An odd case of this and DoomedByCanon applying to the same character. Ginny is going to be possessed by Tom, but we know that his victory won't last for long, as Harry will find her and save her by destroying the diary.

Added DiffLines:

* SpottingTheThread: Ginny finds an inconsistency in Tom's story about "Viane" and her alleged history with him and Moaning Myrtle (apparently, it didn't occur to Tom to double-check to make sure the timeline matched up). After that, she decides to look into some other details, and once she does the proper research, his story falls apart at the seams. It's all downhill from there.

Added DiffLines:

* LackOfEmpathy: Guess who? He wouldn't be Tom Riddle if he had an ounce of empathy in him.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath: Tom, as in canon, is incapable of feeling love, compassion, guilt, or empathy, though he's pretty good at faking it.

Added DiffLines:

* PrecociousCrush: Ginny's crush on Harry doesn't count, since he's only a year older, but her heavily implied crush on Tom does, since he's sixteen. On the surface, an eleven year old having an unrequited crush on an older boy seems harmless, even normal, but the full truth of the matter is ''way'' creepier than that. It doesn't help that Tom appears to be ''encouraging'' it.


Added DiffLines:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Or, rather, Lonely Girl Seeks Nice Boy. The main reason Ginny has a crush on Harry is because of how nice and brave and heroic he is. She's implied to develop a crush on Tom because he's nice to her and listens to her. [[FalseFriend Yeah...]]


Added DiffLines:

* WasItAllALie: Yep. From start to finish, and Ginny fell for it, hook, line, and sinker.
