J.K. Rowling updates readers on lives of Harry, Ron, Hermione and others

For the first time since the epilogue in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling is providing a glimpse into Harry Potter’s life post-Hogwarts.

Amongst wizard rockstars and magical dignitaries, members of Dumbledore’s Army made an appearance in the Patagonian Desert for the 2014 Quidditch World Cup final this week. In a new Daily Prophet article released today on Pottermore, J.K. Rowling writes from the perspective of the infamous prying journalist Rita Skeeter, who is keeping a watchful eye over Harry Potter and his family and friends at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup final.

Skeeter updates readers on the lives of the thirty-something year old members of Dumbledore’s Army, starting off with Harry himself, now 34 with some threads of silver in his famously jet-black hair. Harry is accompanied by his sons James and Albus in the Patagonian, where their mother, Ginny has been reporting on the Cup for weeks.

Skeeter speculates on Ginny’s placement in the Daily Prophet: “The jury is out on whether she really had the talent or experience to be sent to the Quidditch World Cup (jury’s back in – no!!!) but let’s face it, when your last name is Potter, doors open, international sporting bodies bow and scrape, and Daily Prophet editors hand you plum assignments.”

Rita also provides a look into the lives of Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, two thirds of the Golden Trio. Ron, we learn, worked in the Ministry of Magic after the war, but left to help out his brother George in running the wildly successful Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes. Hermione, on the other hand, rose quickly through the ranks of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and is “tipped to go even higher,” according to Skeeter. “Does Hermione Granger prove that a witch really can have it all? (No — look at her hair.)” Skeeter adds.

Besides Harry, Ron, and Hermione, Skeeter lets readers in on the lives of Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, and other Weasley family members who have been spotted in the Patagonian Desert. Rita even got a jab in at Harry’s godson, Teddy Lupin, who “has been behaving in  a way unbefitting for wizarding royalty.” We find Teddy just where we left him, in a budding relationship with Victoire Weasley.
