I thought Ginny Weasley was the heir of Slytherin.I am apparrently wrong.

If Ginny Weasley obtained Tom Riddle's diary,why didn't that mean she's the heir of Slytherin?

If Ginny Weasley did recieve the diary,and if Voldemort put part of himself in the diary,Why wouldn't Ginny obtain the power to open the Chamber of Secrets?

When Ginny was shopping for school supplies,she had a cauldron that she was putting her school books in.Lucius Malfoy tossed Tom's diary in the cauldron.Why did Lucius Malfoy give it to Ginny?Why not someone like Hermione?

In Moaning Myrtle's bathroom,The faucett that has a snake engraved into it is the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets.Does anything in Parseltounge grant accsess to the chamber?

You do not need to be a Parseltounge to open the chamber,but you need to speak parseltounge? Ron copied parseltounge Harry was speaking to open the chamber when he and Hermione need basilisk venom to destroy a Horcrux.

My last question is,What was Salazar Slytherin's original purpose for the Chamber? Voldemorts Downfall 03:18, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Your first question, the heir of Slytherin is someone directly decended from him, as Ginny was not, and recieving a diary wouldn't make her so, she is not the heir of Slytherin.

2. Ginny actually did open the chamber

3. Lucius gave the dairy to Ginny in hopes to get her father, Arthur sacked for her opening the chamber

4. I'm assuming you'd just say "open"

5. That is correct

And Slytherin's purpose for the chamber was to use the Basalisk to kill all muggle borns in the school—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ownage957 (talkcontribs).

Let's not forget also that Ginny was possessed when she opened the Chamber so she did everything Riddle wanted her to do.Still Learning 14:29, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
