(PCM) Harry Potter fans were delighted when they received word that author J.K. Rowling had just published a 1,500 word short story on her website, Pottermore, that gave fans an update into Harry Potter’s wizarding world.
The story was written from the perspective of a gossip columnist Rita Skeeter, and it marks the first time that Rowling has written about the trio (Harry, Ron, and Hermione) since her last book.
The story talks about a grown-up Harry Potter, who is married to Ron’s sister Ginny Potter. Ron is married to Hermione Granger. Rabid fans flocked to the Pottermore website and the server crashed quite a few times throughout the course of the afternoon.
Rumors began to swirl that the story meant that it was possible that Rowling was working on a new book, however those rumors were squashed when a rep for Pottermore revealed that there are no plans to continue the series.
Bummer! Well, at least Potter fans got a small treat this summer!
