“So what are they hiding? Is the Chosen One embroiled in fresh mysteries that will one day explode upon us all, plunging us into a new age of terror and mayhem?”
I’ve been a big fan of the Harry Potter series ever since the first book came out, and I must have read the series at least a dozen times and in three different languages… And I’ve seen all of the movies as well. So when I found out J.K. Rowling has written a short story under the name of Rita Skeeter at Pottermore, I knew I just HAD to check it out. I even made a new Pottermore account for it and all. The short story is ment as a little glimpse into the future of the main characters where we learn more about different relationships that have developed since the last book. I enjoyed reading it, but mostly it just left me wanting for more. I honestly hope Rowling wrote this as a little teaser to excite the fans about a possible sequel. I know I would be running to the store if such sequel would be published, and I won’t be the only one… Although for now the only thing we can do is wait and see. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
The short story is written in the form of a newspaper article under the title Dumbledore’s Army Reunites At Quidditch World Cup Final. It is written by Rita Skeeter, who we all know as a gossip expert who loves to create rumors about Harry Potter and his friends. And that is exactly what she did in this short article. And besides gossips, she also leaves room open for a possible new threat and adventure for Harry Potter and the Dumbledore’s Army… I mean, what other thing can be the meaning of the lines I quoted at the beginning of this post?
If you love the Harry Potter series like I do, make sure to also check out this article. It is another article of the Daily Prophet with a full transcript of the Quidditch Word Cup Final… Posted July 11th and written by Ginny Potter and Rita Skeeter. There is a lot of new information about the members of the Dumbledore’s Army to be found!
