Gone are the days when pen and paper were J.K. Rowling’s only priority…
The Harry Potter and Casual Vacancy author has been very active on Twitter these past few days, continuing to weigh in on the Scottish Referendum debate as well as replying to fans.
In the midst of all her tweets (there were a lot), she responded to one fan’s comment about wanting a test that would let someone choose their Patronus, tweeting, “Keep watching Pottermore…”
@AlwaysUchiwa Keep watching Pottermore…

Since the start, Pottermore fans have been asking for a test like the Sorting Hat and wand questionnaire to choose their Patronus (or, at the very least, the option to choose their Patronus), and this is the first hint that it might become a reality. The test would likely be included in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when members of Dumbledore’s Army learn how to cast Patronuses. Relatedly, we also would not be surprised if the prize for the upcoming House Cup would be the first chapters of Order of the Phoenix, like Pottermore did last year around this time for Goblet of Fire. However, Dumbledore’s Army isn’t established until later in the book, so it’s unlikely that it would be in the first installment.
Moreover, be sure to keep an eye out on J.K. Rowling’s Twitter. As we said, she’s been replying to lots of fans and Scotland debaters, so there is a chance that she might reply to you. (!) The author even tweeted Luna Lovegood actress Evanna Lynch, in an amazing conversation that you can see here. To see more of her tweets and replies, click here.
