For real though, this is one of those things we all just want to believe no matter what cause those things were freaking adorable. Be sure to hide the valuable merchandise though.

If you'd told us that Johnny Depp would be starring in a Harry Potter spinoff series, and especially in light of the more recent domestic violence accusations, we'd have said, no way; but alas, here we are. The fans don't seem all too stoked about the news.

Christian Voice, "a UK-based prayer and lobby group praying for national repentance and working for godly government" went after Olympic diver Tom Daley after he was knocked out of 10m platform dive in the semifinals and J.K. Rowling was there to have his back.

Along with J.K. Rowling, there were numerous other accounts who chimed in to give their two cents. This sparked an online argument on how to properly deal with a troll.

Here's what J.K. had to say:

J.K. Rowling writes that Ilvermorny was a magical school of witchcraft and wizardry, founded by a pureblood Irish wizard named Isolt Sayre in the 17th century. Ilvermorny sat atop the highest peak of Mount Greylock enshrouded by powerful concealment enchantments.

Sayre was a descendant of Salazar Slytherin and the renowned Irish witch Morrigan. Sayre lived with her parents in a small Irish town till the day her mother's estranged sister Gormlaith Gaunt (pureblood zealot) murdered Sayre's parents and kidnapped her away to Hag's Glen to stop her from marrying a muggle.

A decade later, following imprisonment and continued attempts at indoctrinating Sayre, she stole her aunt's wand, and managed an escape. 

Sayre went on to pose as a Muggle boy, sailing to the 'New World', where she came across a wealth of magical creatures and fellow wizards that'd ultimately help her create Ilvermorny.

The four Ilvermorny houses are named after magical creatures:

  • Horned Serpent – a ‘great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead’
  • Pukwudgie – ‘a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature’
  • Thunderbird – a creature that ‘can create storms as it flies’
  • Wampus – ‘a magical, panther-like creature that is fast, strong and almost impossible to kill’

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.
