Merlin’s pants! Can it be? YES! The Muggle world is buzzing over the biggest Harry Potter news since we all found out that Harry was a horcrux. Oops, should we have said, “spoiler alert”? Oh, well — that’s NOTHING compared to this bombshell: J.K. Rowling’s top secret notes have been leaked, and they reveal a plethora of the author’s ideas for her next book!
According to internet chatter, a single sheet from Rowling’s notebook was scanned and anonymously posted through a Twitpic account that has since been disabled. Unfortunately for those of us who love Harry more than Hagrid loves dangerous creatures, the scanned image is no longer to be found online.
But luckily, British newspaper The Guardian somehow got ahold of the contents of the notes, and OF COURSE, we’re reproducing it all here for fellow Potterphiles, word for word:
New Harry book – ideas:
From Luna’s perspective – she’s actually a creepy stalker who will stop at nothing to be friends with Harry & co.
Identify wizards who are hiding in plain sight: Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Barack Obama(?)
Follow-up set in Heaven – Lupin, Tonks, Fred, etc. hang out awkwardly with Voldemort, who ended up in Heaven due to a clerical error. (Note: Would have to be a comedy!)
Follow-up holiday story – Christmas with Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione & family. Hermione’s parents cause a scene when it finally comes out they’re angry none of their grandkids are named after their side.
Songbook from Peeves, with accompanying music album – U2 Weird Al Yankovic!!!
How to overcome book banning problem? Re-do the whole series with no magic? (Note: This may not work.)
And there you have it — potential plots for a new Harry Potter book, straight from J.K. Rowling’s private notes!
Unfortunately for Karen’s subconscious, it looks like Rowling isn’t planning any Dramione storylines. But who knows what other ideas are documented in the rest of Rowling’s notebook? A romance for the usually stern Professor McGonagall? A whole new series set at Beauxbatons or Durmstrang? Or perhaps an idea for… APRIL FOOL’S! 🙂
