New Harry Potter "story" at Pottermore

There are a handful of fictional worlds that I would call myself fanatical about at some point in my life, and Harry Potter was one such world for me a few years ago. That's why I immediately visited Pottermore (which I'm a member of, naturally) when I found out that J.K. Rowling published a new Harry Potter "story" on the site. The reason why "story" is in quotes is that it's really a gossip column by Rita Skeeter covering the Quidditch World Cup finals. However, it's an interesting view into the lives of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and some of their other friends as adults. Being a gossip column, the story can't be relied on as 100% true, but it was entertaining nevertheless to compare Rowling's words with how I envisioned Dumbledore's Army as grown ups. At the end of the story, Rita promotes her new book, Dumbledore's Army: The Dark Side of the Demob, which will be released on July 31. Might we get more Harry Potter goodness from J.K. Rowling on that date?



  1. I'm the same way with Harry Potter. I haven't read this new story yet, but I have it bookmarked. I hope "Rita"'s gotten more accurate in her reporting.

    1. I'm afraid that one thing that hasn't changed much in the last 15+ years is Rita Skeeter's journalistic accuracy. :-)
