What do you do if you're J.K. Rowling and have hundreds of thousands of fans who are constantly itching for new material from their favorite wizard?
Well, if you like to be sneaky (as she does) then you decide to post an entire 1,500 word short story about ADULT Harry Potter and watch as the HP fandom acts like they've been hit by 1,000 cheering charms.
J.K. took to the Pottermore website to post Dumbledore's Army Reunites At Quidditch World Cup Final, written in the wonderfully snarky voice of Rita Skeeter, and it's absolutely BRILLIANT.
The piece gives readers a delightful view at the characters now and what they've since been up to since the end of the Deathly Hallows.
She describes adult Harry as:
'About to turn 34, there are a couple threads of silver in the famous Auror's black hair, but he continues to wear the distinctive round glasses that some may say are better suited to a style-deficient twelve-year-old.'
This is just TOO much. We LOVE it.
J.K. must be so ingrained in the Wizarding World, what with her penning the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie AND the Quidditch updates, that she just HAD to write this for the fans!
Well, that OR she's got ANOTHER book about Harry coming, which she just MAY have hinted at in her last paragraph.
Don't believe us? She wrote:
'But let us not be severe. Harry Potter and his cohorts never claimed to be perfect! And for those who want to know exactly how imperfect they are, my new biography: Dumbledore's Army: The Dark Side of the Demob will be available from Flourish and Blotts on July 31st.'
DOES THIS MEAN THAT SHE'S GIVING EVERYONE A NEW BOOK? Or even a new excerpt which includes MORE details about the characters as adults?!
Well, not so fast… Her rep reported that J.K. has "no plans" to write any further stories about older Harry.
Unless, of course, she's ALREADY written the Rita Skeeter book?????
PLEASE let it be so! This is such a tease to the fans!
P.S. You can read the entire story on the Pottermore website HERE.
