As of today, the first installment of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is now available for all Pottermore users to explore.

Return to Pottermore.com to explore the first ten moments of the fourth Harry Potter book. Encounter the eerie Riddle House in Little Hangleton, and even travel by Portkey to the unforgettable Quidditch World Cup.

In addition, in three new exclusive content entries, author J.K. Rowling shares the origins of the Floo Network, new information on Portkeys, and an interesting explanation to the symbolism of colors in the Wizarding World.

Here’s an excerpt from Rowling’s entry on ‘Colors’:

The four Hogwarts houses have a loose association with the four elements, and their colours were chosen accordingly.  Gryffindor (red and gold) is connected to fire; Slytherin (green and silver) to water; Hufflepuff (yellow and black, representing wheat and soil) to earth; and Ravenclaw (blue and bronze; sky and eagle feathers) to air.

Colours like peach and salmon pink are distinctly un-magical, and therefore much favoured by the likes of Aunt Petunia.  On the other hand, shocking pink, as sported by the likes of Nymphadora Tonks, conveys a certain punky ‘yes, I’ve got a Muggle-born father and I’m not ashamed of it’ attitude.

Did anyone else enjoy that last sentence?

Also, for the first time, you will be able to hear J.K. Rowling reveal a notorious mishap with the Floo Network, in a new audio entry feature on Pottermore.com. You can listen to the audio entry and read all the rest, only on Pottermore.com.

Happy Exploring!
