The Best Freak-Outs Over J.K. Rowling's New Harry Potter Story

Jul 8 2014 - 11:25am

Has your Potterhead exploded yet? Two insanely awesome things happened in the Muggle world today: Diagon Alley at Universal Studio's Wizarding World of Harry Potter [1] opened its gates, and J.K. Rowling just published a new short story [2] on Pottermore about a Dumbledore's Army reunion at the Quidditch World Cup final.

The resurgence of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and gang is turning full-grown adults into rabid, hysterical Muggle fans. Potterheads around the Internet are solemnly swearing that they still believe in the magic of Harry after all this time, always.

@sorocksteady [21] No, there's just new Harry Potter. A Rita Skeeter article from the Quidditch World Cup. I can't see. Or breathe.

Harry Potter definitely peaked in high school. He saved the world from ultimate evil. After that, it was all a Springsteen song with magic.
