What I Wouldn't Give for a Divination Course

Quoth the author, "Pottermore!"

I'm an avid Harry Potter fan. Actually, I think the term "rabid" might be more appropriate. I'm over half-way through book six, have seen all the movies, visited the park, toured Hogwarts, and own a replica of Hermione's wand. I've developed a much better grasp on Quidditch than I have on Football, and Thomas has taken to teasingly asking if I know where all the bathrooms are in the castle (the answer is no. However, I do know the Room of Requirement is on the fourth floor, across from a tapestry. I need help...). So, of course, I'm both freakishly excited to see the next movie, but also a little sad that it'll be the last one. Ever. Excuse me, I think I have something in my eye...

With that knowledge in mind, imagine my excitement to hear that J.K. Rowling is about to launch a website called! My obsession can live on! Here's the thing, though: no one has any idea what the website will entail. All the site consists of right now are a couple of owls and a placard stating the site is coming soon. If you click on the owls, you're directed to a youtube video that I can't view on either my phone or computer at the moment, which is ennervating, to say the least. The author will make an official announcement regarding the site on June 23rd. Other than that, all we know for certain is that it will not have anything to do with another book.

So what is Pottermore? MTV has some interesting guesses, ranging from a more-than-likely videogame, on to the I-wouldn't-hold-my-breath ideas of an additional theme park or actual wizarding school. Of course, it's all speculation just now. Looks like we have to wait another week for Ms. Rowling to divulge yet another mystery.
