J.K. Rowling posted the first part of History of the Quidditch World Cup on Pottermore.
Part one gives devoted Harry Potter fans inside information on the history of the game, how it got started, how it works, and details on controversial Quidditch games, such as the Tournament Nobody Remembers.
Part two of J.K.‘s long-form piece will be released this Friday (March 21) and will include “amusing recaps of some notable recent matches that have been held every four years since 1990,” according to the site.
Pottermore, which opened in April 2012, has given fans a chance to stay involved with the story that was a big part of their life.
The Harry Potter world was rocked last week when author J.K. Rowling admitted that she should’ve put Harry and Hermione together at the end of the book series.
Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny in the film and ended up with Daniel Radcliffe‘s Harry, opened up about the revelation — taking Ginny’s side.
“Ginny is a tough cookie so she’d have been fine,” Bonnie shared with The Telegraph at InStyle’s pre-BAFTA party.
She added, “She dated Dean Thomas before Harry, after all.”
Are you a Harry and Hermione shipper? Or are you a Ron and Hermione shipper?
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling recently Wonderland mag (where Emma Watson was a guest editor) that looking back, she should’ve put Harry and Herimone together instead of with Ron.
“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” Ms. Rowling shared. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”
She added, “I know, I’m sorry. I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
And it looks like Emma agreed with her too: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”

Listen up, Harry Potter fans! J.K. Rowling is set to write a movie screenplay based on the wizarding world she created in her seven-part series!
“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” the 48-year-old author said in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”
