Pottermore website ran down after “Harry Potter” scribe, J.K. Rowling, posted her new tale featuring the older selves of Harry Potter and his Hogwarts friends. The author’s new masterpiece, set in the finals of the Quidditch World Cup, is a 1,500-word narrative of Harry’s reunion with his closest buddies, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasely, including other Hogwarts folks such as Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood. Read on for further details.

The newly released Rowling brainchild, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is a brief account of what is happening with Hogwarts cliques at present and a quick look into the future. The narrative features the kids of Weasley and Granger, and Ron’s sister, Ginny, as Potter’s wife. Pottermore says that the friends reunite at the Quidditch World Cup 2014 finals, which is a part of the series of imaginary tournament of semi-contact sport played by wizards and witches held every four years since 1473.

In the story, Potter is described with what appears to be a cut on his cheekbone, about which fictional “Harry Potter” correspondent Rita Skeeter concludes to have been acquired by Potter being an Auror — a wizard expert at capturing dark wizards. Potter also has “threads of silver” in his black hair now that he is turning 34, according to the article, while Weasley’s ginger hair seems to be slightly thinner than before.

Pottermore recovered around 9:30 a.m., July 8, 2014, so it is back for the millions of Potter fans with the news article by Skeeter titled “Dumbledore’s Army Reunites.” Apparently, instead of highlighting the Quidditch finals, Skeeter reported on the arrival of the six original members of the Dumbledore’s Army together with its other members. It can be remembered by “Harry Potter” followers that Potter enrolled classmates in Dumbledore’s Army for a training in wizardry when the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry stops temporarily in teaching its students in Defense Against the Dark Arts. Perhaps, the publication of Skeeter’s account on the arrival of Harry Potter and his friends has been intentional to coincide with the opening of the Diagon Alley at the Universal Studios amusement park in Orlando, Florida.

The Hollywood Reporter said that Pottermore’s concluding article on Quidditch World Cup, which would highlight the final battle between Bulgaria and Brazil, would be published on July 11, 2014, prior to the soccer World Cup final happening in Brazil.
