J.K. Rowling is releasing a new Harry Potter writing for Christmas. A new content will be relased daily on Pottermore, the Harry Potter publishing website, for 12 days leading to Christmas eve.
According to the website, the new exclusive writing will include an account of Professor McGonagall’s life before Hogwarts.
We’re expecting to read about young Minerva, her family, and a glimpse of her love life. How her heart was broken because she couldn’t marry the handsome muggle she met after graduating from Hogwarts, due to her fear of becoming like her mother, and her job at the Ministry of Magic.
We will also discover the history of the Malfoy family.
Probably a detailed account of Lucius Malfoy’s death eater years? How he became one and also Narcissa Malfoy’s story.
It would be interesting to read about young Narcissa, and her sisters Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks. For those who do not know, Andromeda was disowned by her family for marrying a muggle-born, Ted Tonks. She is also the mother of Nymphadora Tonks.
Maybe we’ll find some redeeming qualities of the prejudiced pure blooded family.
The website also says that we’ll learn more about the manufacturer of floo pwder. It’s the glittery powder used by wizards to travel through the Floo Network, which connects most wizarding households and buildings.
Trivia: The floo powder was invented by Ignatia Wildsmith, who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and was sorted into Ravenclaw. Maybe we’ll discover how she invented and intoduced it to the wizarding world.
Fans are getting giddy in anticipation for the new HP stories. 12 days of Harry Potter Christmas will start on December 12, 2014. If you haven’t already done so, sign up to get access to J.K. Rowling’s exclusive new writing. Surprise stories will come out everyday at 1pm GMT. Stay tuned!
