I will never get tired of writing about, reading, watching, or generally gobbling up every tidbit of information about the world of Harry Potter. All-things Potter will live forever for that reason, and I will assume that you are awesome (because you clicked on this) and you feel the same way.
Ergo, without further ado, I give you 33 things that you’ve obviously missed since the series ended.
**Fair warning** Below there are some comments based on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and they are marked SPOILER ALERT. If you haven’t read the play and don’t want to be spoiled, pay attention!
#33. Dolores Umbridge was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for crimes against Muggle-borns.
Because obviously she deserves worse!
#32. The Resurrection Stone is now buried in the Forbidden Forest after being pressed into the ground by a centaur’s hoof. It has not been re-discovered.
I feel like better precautions could have been taken if there’s even the slightest possibility it could have been re-discovered.
#31. After his death, Voldemort is forced to exist in the stunted infant-like form that Harry sees in the King’s Cross-like Limbo.
I approve of this, because it means he could find a way to come back. Which means we can continue to dream of the possibility of more books.
#30. Harry lost the ability to speak Parseltongue when Voldemort’s soul fragment was destroyed.
If you’ve read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, you know this isn’t true.
#29. Viktor Krum fell in love with a woman back home in Bulgaria and presumably lived happily ever after.
I mean, why not?
#28. The Death Eater’s Dark Marks eventually faded to look like a scar. It will no longer burn or hurt.
Meh. This means they could hide it with makeup, and I feel like Voldemort is better than that.
#27. The Quibbler is back to publishing articles about the lunatic fringe and is appreciated for its unintentional humor.
In my mind, Luna still totally writes for them in her spare time.
#26. The remaining Death Eaters were killed or imprisoned in Azkaban for their crimes, with the exception of the Malfoys. Draco and Harry never became friends, but they did come to understand and appreciate each other better.
The relationship between Harry and Draco was one of my least favorite aspects of The Cursed Child.
