Harry Potter fans have something to celebrate today…or, at least, something to nerd out over big time.
A super comprehensive post on the muggle-run, JK-Rowling-dedicated Tumblr page, F**k Yeah, JK Rowling, tells us everything we wanted to know about our favourite characters from the Harry Potter world (well, almost everything), as suggested by the author in various interviews over the years since the books ended.
As lovers of all things Potter, we gobbled it all up and put together the highlights for you here:
Ginny goes pro
Damn Ginny, we knew you were a solid Quidditch player, but we never expected you to go pro. Ginny apparently becomes a member of the Holyhead Harpies as well as the senior Quidditch correspondent for that magical rag, the Daily Prophet. Her skeptics all got the same response:
Use it or lose it
Much like you and your vacation-earned Spanish, Harry loses his ability to speak Parseltongue as he ages. But, he can probably still blast them with his wand, so that works.
Hermione, as we might have guessed, is the only one of the main trio (Harry, Ron, Hermione) to head back to Hogwarts to complete year seven. Typical Granger, head always in the books.
Just the thought of not finishing her classes had her like:
Draco leaves evil behind him
Draco becomes a loving father who tries to give his son, Scorpius, a better upbringing than he had. It’s nice to see Draco breaking away from the dark side after everything he’s been through. It’s been a rough ride.
Longbottom makes us proud
Our old pal Neville Longbottom (who didn’t love that guy?) works as an Auror before becoming the Herbology professor at Hogwarts. We always believed in you, Neville.
Umbridge gets hers
You’ll be happy to know that Professor Umbridge, easily the most detestable prof to roam the halls of Hogwarts, got her comeuppance, eventually being arrested, questioned and sent to prison for her crimes against Muggleborns (that’s us!). Good riddance to bad teachers.
A marriage of weirdos
One of our favourite secondary characters, Luna Lovegood, ends up tying the knot with the grandson of the author of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,’ to become Luna Scamander. Their children are sure to be…let’s call them eccentric.
