J.K. Rowling Just Published A New Harry Potter Story & Everyone Is Freaking Out — But Wait! Do We Spot A Hint At A Possible New Novel Too???

jk rowling posted a new harry potter story about harry potter

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.

Could Quidditch Become An NCAA Sport?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!Zportz

student play quidditch sport in real life

Did U know that Quidditch, the broom-based sport from the Harry Potter series, has become a real sport?

Don't believe us? Why don't you ask one of the 60 teams that will gather at De Witt Clinton Park in NYC next weekend for the fourth annual Quidditch World Cup!

The event will be attended by high schools and universities from all over the country, including Harvard, Yale, and Duke.

While many people might be satisfied with the fact that the sport has become a reality, Valerie Fischman, a student from the University of Maryland, wants more!

Fischman has launched a campaign for Quidditch to be recognized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Here's what she had to say about it:

"I think that having NCAA status will give it a little more credibility and help keep it around a little bit longer. I'm hoping that it stays around after the Harry Potter generation leaves college."

Here's what would be necessary to make Quidditch an NCAA sport:

-Official Quidditch clubs must be in at least 50 colleges across the country

-Athletic directors from 50+ colleges must individually petition the NCAA

Fischman will be seeking support from the International Quidditch Association which actually exists.

Looking to bring Quidditch to your school? Check out the official rulebook and spread the word!
