Harry Potter, although, aging, is back in a new short story by JK Rowling.
The 1,500-word story, published on the writer’s Pottermore website, describes the now 33-year-old Harry as having “threads of silver” in his black hair.
A fictional gossip column written by Harry Potter journalist Rita Skeeter in the Daily Prophet says he continues to wear his glasses that she says are ‘better suited to a style-deficient 12-year-old’.
Skeeter writes: “One always hesitates to invade the privacy of young people, but the fact is that anyone closely connected with Harry Potter reaps the benefits and must pay the penalty of public interest.”
The fictional gossip column says Ron Weasley, has aged less well with his ginger hair “thinning slightly”. His wife Hermione, Harry’s wife Ginny, and their children all feature in the story. Ron entered into employment within the Ministry of Magic alongside Harry but left two years later and suggests he could even have a mental illness. [!!!!!]
Rowling also gives fans a hint of Harry’s new life by describing a mysterious cut over his cheekbone which signifies his work as an Auror.
I apologize for sensationalizing this story and being part of the problem. The thing is, no matter if this story is true or not, a little girl is being hurt. Mostly, by her grandmother who is exploiting her. Shame on you, grandmother. Shame on you.
This is the face of a girl that needs more than a grandmother who takes advantage of her condition.
