J.K. Rowling May Be Working On Getting You A Patronus Test For Pottermore

EXPECTO! Expecto! Expecto...

LunaPatronusHarryPotterI figured it would be pretty easy to figure out what my Patronus would be. A cat, obviously. But then, maybe a red panda…or a fennec fox! OH GOD, WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT?! Don’t worry, a solution may be about to present itself thanks to Pottermore.

While nothing has been confirmed, a fan tweeted at J.K. Rowling about the appeal of having an actual test to determine one’s Patronus:

Pottermore has been doing some great stuff lately, including giving us a short story from Rita Skeeter and a very cool bit of background and performance from Celestina Warbeck so odds are good for a Patronus test.

The author also weighed in on the Scottish Referendum during her recent burst of Twitter activity with a general awesome life lesson…

What have you always considered your Patronus to be? And don’t tell me you haven’t thought about it.
