Brand New Harry Potter Story on Pottermore.com

The first installment of J.K. Rowling’s new story about the Quidditch World Cup went up on Pottermore.com in March, but today Rowling released the next chapter in the QWC story–and it reunites an adult Harry, Ron, and Hermione (and Neville and Luna).

This installment is told by Rita Skeeter, and it is full of gossip and snarkiness about our favorite wizarding trio all grown up and in their mid-30s. I particularly loved when Skeeter referred to Hermione as the “femme fatale of the group,” and the idea of Harry introducing his kids to Viktor Krum made me smile. Also, check out the last sentence of the fourth paragraph. Foreshadowing?! I nearly fainted reading that.

Potterheads who are already members of Pottermore can check out the story there, but according to Yahoo! it already crashed that site. Rowling exclusively shared the new chapter with the Today Show, and you can read it in its entirety there.
