Not since Harry's epic win over Voldemort (and that atrocious "19 Years Later" epilogue) have Pot-heads (HP fans) been given a glimpse into the life of The Boy Who Lived. All that changed today when a story was released by the headmistress of all things Potter herself, J.K. Rowling.
The story itself doesn't directly follow Harry or his pals, as Rowling took a World Cup-inspired approach, using the perspective of everyone's least favourite gossip columnist, Rita Skeeter, as she covers the Quidditch World Cup Final. Harry is more the focus of the column though, although readers only get little snippets of info on his and the gang's adult life.
Rowling's new story was originally posted on Pottermore.com, but since you have to create an account and its mega-slow right meow (wonder why?) it's probably best to just read an online screen cap. Here's one for you right here.
Don't get too excited, as Rowling has said in the past that she won't be writing any more Potter-tales. Skeeter's column is better than nothing though. A final Skeeter-column will be published on Friday, according to The Bookseller.

If you're reading this I assume you're a massive Harry Potter fan like myself. When the books came out it was game over. Everyone had their noses stuffed inside those books everywhere they went. Then when the movies came out the series blew up even bigger than before! We got to travel to the wizarding world with our favourite characters on the big screens.
Even though the series ended and we no longer get to travel to the magical land of Hogwarts with Harry, Ron and Hermione anymore, there's still other fun ways we can escape to the wizarding world on our own!
One of the best ways is this amazing Harry Potter themed event that's taking place right here in Quebec!
The event is called Baguettes et Sortileges and it's taking place on October 8th at La Seigneurie des Patriotes from 11 am-11 pm! The best part? It's just a 57 min drive from Montreal to get there!
This crazy event will feature everything Harry Potter themed including exhibitors and craftsmen, a magical improv show, workshops and a massive banquet feast with all the fixings just like in the movies!
You may be wondering just how "Harry Potter" worthy this cocktail is, and trust me it's almost too magical to handle! The cocktail is served in a glass dome and once the glass dome is lifted, and orb of smoke slowly lifts revealing the majestic cocktail.
It's a completely stunning experience and it is taking instagram by STORM! Now, where can you get this magical drink? Well, you can find it a non-other than Atwater Cocktail Club! Just ask for the Smoke Show.
Atwater Cocktail Club is a back-alley bar serving specialty cocktails and snacks in a speakeasy/French Disco inspired ambiance. They honestly have the craziest cocktails that come it panda, peach, pineapples, or cat glasses!
Are you a muggle that secretly wishes they were a wizard studying the art of magic at Hogwarts? Do you spend your days searching for the platform 9 3/4 to hop onto the Hogwarts Express? Well, now's your chance to escape into the magical world of Harry Potter!
On September 30th there will be a huge Harry Potter Festival happening in Waterloo, Ontario that all Harry Potter fans must attend! They will be running the 94-year-old steam engine train leaving from St. Jacob Market Station at 4 different times during the day: 8am, 10am, 12pm and 8pm!
This huge festival will also feature fun Harry Potter themed activities like the Wizard's Dueling Ring where you can face off using spells, Marauder's Map Scavenger Hunt, magic classes and so much more.
They'll also have tons of vendors selling your Harry Potter favourites like butter beer, wands, robes, and even a magical tattoo! Be entertained by the wandering performers dueling in the crowds, face painters, and fun magic shows.
Have you ever dreamt of traveling to the wizarding world for a magical time with Harry Potter over breakfast to ask him a MILLION questions? HELLA YA YOU HAVE! Well, now you can. Montreal is officially hosting a "Harry Potter" themed brunch that has Hogwarts written ALL over it.
It is taking place September 1st at 6 PM until September 3rd at 10 PM at Les Intraitables. It will be a night full of sorcery, magic, and pure joy as you enjoy delicious food! I mean have you ever look at what Harry eats in the morning? It looks magical AF.
