    What a bunch of Muggles, amirite?

    Ireland recently became the first country in the world to approve marriage equality by popular vote, and good old J.K. did not hold back in spreading the good news—even when some Internet users didn't want to hear it.

  2. JK Rowling Gets an Eye-Full of Grown up Neville Longbottom, Matthew Lewis Proceeds to Apologize for His Abs & Junk

    And then Lucius Malfoy made a butt joke.

    While Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling didn't create the films, she was heavily involved in the process and therefore became close with the cast. When Matthew Lewis tweeted a link to a magazine he's being featured in, Rowling was in for a bit of a shock. Warning: serious abs ahead.

Rowling has been the subject of considerable attention on Twitter recently for her outspoken support of Britain’s Labour Party, and as a high-profile woman on the Internet with a pesky tendency toward having opinions, she's also been the recent recipient of gendered slurs and vile, misogynistic tweets.

  7. J.K. Rowling Responds to Fan Who “Can’t See” Dumbledore as Gay

    Perhaps you've been the victim of a Blinding Jinx?

    It's been almost eight years since Deathly Hallows was released, but homophobia and heteronormativity know no statute of limitations. J.K.

  11. Depression: Psychology Lessons from Harry Potter

    While not many of us have lost our parents to a dark wizard, many of us can relate to a deep deep sense of loss, having lost someone or something that meant a lot to us.

  13. JK Rowling’s Patronus Test For Potter Is Imminent, So Prepare Yourselves

    It is nigh.

    I, like many Harry Potter fans, have some mixed feelings about Pottermore. New Potter content that reveals precious info about characters like the venerable Minerva McGonagall and shows us Harry & Co. hanging out at the Quidditch World Cup and not getting attacked by Death Eaters? Hells yes. Having to navigate actual Pottermore to get to this content? Eh... Meh...

    Also, the Fables movie is still a thing that is happening.

    David Heyman's Paddington is making haymen at the box office, and so he's doing the usual press thing, which means he's being asked about his other projects, i.e., two geek properties that have women writing their screenplays, so, up our alley.
