J.K. Rowling Posts A New Harry Potter Short Story on Pottermore!

BuzzFeed reported this morning that J.K. Rowling posted a new Harry Potter short story on Pottermore. Reportedly the story revisits Harry in his thirties with greying hair while he attends the Quidditch World Cup final.

Here's a snippet of it, which was posted this morning on TODAY.

Dumbledore’s Army Reunites at Quidditch World Cup Final
By the Daily Prophet’s Gossip Correspondent, Rita Skeeter

There are celebrities – and then there are celebrities. We’ve seen many a famous face from the wizarding world grace the stands here in the Patagonian Desert – Ministers and Presidents, Celestina Warbeck, controversial American wizarding band The Bent-Winged Snitches – all have caused flurries of excitement, with crowd members scrambling for autographs and even casting Bridging Charms to reach the VIP boxes over the heads of the crowd.

But when word swept the campsite and stadium that a certain gang of infamous wizards (no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday, but nevertheless recognisable) had arrived for the final, excitement was beyond anything yet seen. As the crowd stampeded, tents were flattened and small children mown down. Fans from all corners of the globe stormed towards the area where members of Dumbledore’s Army were rumoured to have been sighted, desperate above all else for a glimpse of the man they still call the Chosen One.

The Potter family and the rest of Dumbledore’s Army have been given accommodation in the VIP section of the campsite, which is protected by heavy charms and patrolled by Security Warlocks.

Cassandra Clare Talks About The Infernal Devices in The Mortal Instruments

Cassandra Clare recently took to Tumblr to talk bout The Infernal Devices in The Mortal Instruments and answered a few fan questions. Here's what she shared on her Tumblr page:
Reblogging cause I’ve got a bunch of these questions and I posted this almost a month ago, so — this time not under a cut. Beware COHF SPOILERS!
Hi Cassie :D I just wanted to say that I LOVED City of Heavenly Fire. It was awesomeness. But I just had some questions. Why didn’t Jem/Zachariah tell Emma that he is related to her (even if distantly)? And will he make an appearance in upcoming books? Will Emma eventually know that she’s related to him? These question just crossed my mind while reading. Thanks :) — thatescapist

TMI Tarot Cards

For fans that may have missed a set of Tarot Cards from the TMI set Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean created, Cassie shared the Ace and Five of steles on her Tumblr page, here.
Have you released the ace and five of steles from the tarot card set. I just scrolled through all of cassandrajp’s posts and she was always really good to reblog them all but I didn’t see them.

Here you go! I do think I’ve posted them but maybe I didn’t tag them. Cecily Herondale and Gabriel Lightwood make up the ace of steles, and the five of steles is Clary and Simon, the scene where she marks him with the Mark of Cain.
