Last week, J.K. Rowling published a short story detailing what Harry Potter and his friends have been up to in the seven years since the publication of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. Given that the story was written in the voice of hateful wizard gossip columnist Rita Skeeter, much of the commentary focused on how the cast has aged, and what problems they might have had growing up.
We can only hope that this is the start of a series in which Rowling checks in on her beloved characters every decade or so, as their bodies slowly fail them and their minds descend into depression, senility, and bitter regrets. If she does, the people who run the Happy Place blog for Someecards have already done some of the heavy lifting for her, creating a series of covers for Harry Potter novels that detail the Boy Who Lived Long Enough To Be Woken Up Every Morning By Pain In His Aching Body’s future adventures.
You can see the rest of the series at Happy Place.
