J.K. Rowling on Twitter: Patronus test coming soon to Pottermore

Back in September, J.K. Rowling hinted on Twitter at the possibility for a function on Pottermore that would allow users to find out their Patronus. Today, the Harry Potter author confirmed that a Patronus test is in the works and will make its way on the site soon.

A fan tweeted at J.K. Rowling, asking, “Is a Patronus quiz for Pottermore ever going to be created?” The author’s response:

So, the long-awaited test will soon be a reality! Since Pottermore’s launch in 2011, lots of fans have asked for the option to choose their Patronus. This is the first substantial news reporting that the option is coming, besides the tweet in September.

Screenshot 2015-02-12 at 06.35.23 PMWhen Pottermore released Moments from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in October, fans were disappointed that the site did not include the opportunity to choose a Patronus, as the fifth book is when Dumbledore’s Army is taught how to perform the Patronus Charm. However, in the moment from chapter 27, in the margin of the illustration, there is a text box and artwork titled, “Expecto Patronum,” saying, “It’s forming…”, hinting at something to come.

Along with this Patronus tweet, this past week J.K. Rowling answered a few fans’ Harry Potter-related questions on Twitter. The author shared the fate of Hagrid’s dog, Fluffy, and this 140-character history of 12 Grimmauld Place. She answered a question about Horcruxes and the Resurrection Stone, too. But, she didn’t stop there, commenting on the television special, Magic Beyond Words, a 2010 biographical film on her own life (1, 2). And she also replied with this amazing response to a question about writer’s block. Lesson learned, keep an eye out on her Twitter — you never know what’s she’s going to say.

What are you looking forward to with the Patronus test? How do you think the test will be set-up? Tell us in the comments below!
