NEW Harry Potter Short Story

Wondered what happened to Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes? Or what Harry, Ron and Hermione look like in the future? JK Rowling releases a new Harry Potter Short Story

JK Rowling writes as Rita Skeeter, reporting The Daily Prophet’s gossip correspondent at the Quidditch World Cup. Offering  a sneak peak at the main characters in their mid-thirties, the article posted on Pottermore is delightfully written in typical Skeeter fashion; scandalous, intrusive and overblown.

Skeeter comments on the effects of ageing on Harry and Ron, commenting on “a couple of threads of silver in [Harry’s] hair” and “whose famous ginger hair seems to be thinning slightly”. She takes several jealous swipes at Ginny, a reporter on the tournament, as well as sneering at Hermione, whose career has been rocketing to Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

It’s a wonderful piece, satirising the tabloids and answering a few questions for the Potter fans out there.
