Hey Potter fans, save the date: your word wizardress, JK Rowling is gifting your own personal advent calendar of sorts. From 12 through 23 December, Rowling will publish a new story on the Pottermore site every day at 1pm GMT.
Among "moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two," Rowling's brand spanking new material will include a look at Harry's nemesis, Draco Malfoy. A sworn enemy to Potter throughout the series, Malfoy "later turns away from dark magic as an adult."
This past Halloween, Rowling pulled a similar trick out of her hat and published six essays, including a 5,000-word piece all about that nasty Hogwarts teacher, Dolores Umbridge. Rowling claimed Umbridge was based on a "piece of work" she came across, and thoroughly despised, in real life. Authors get the ultimate revenge, don't they?
As per the Halloween release, giddy fans of all ages will have to answer riddles to unlock the new material online. And in even more Potterific news, Rowling is polishing off screen adaptations of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
