I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet

So many real-life and fannish things to share but let's start with the news that came out on Friday:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opens at the Palace Theatre London in July 2016, with preview performances from late May 2016.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.


Since I really only got into fandom after DH, I've never had any of my HP fanon Joss'd before. Now it's all game and that's a bit frightening. What will become of Rose, Al, and (most worrisome for me) Scorpius? What if JKR's H/Hr trolling last year actually had some deeper meaning? What if Draco and Astoria aren't totally in love?

On the other hand, I've done pretty well at creating a little world that jibes pretty well with everything JKR has mentioned so maybe that streak will continue. Maybe this play will exceed my wildest expectations.

Time will tell.

The only thing I feel like I can say with... pretty much total certainty is that for her H/Hr trolling, I don't doubt JKR's commitment to Harry/Ginny.

I'm less certain over the chances that Scorpius won't turn out a young!Draco clone, but we can always hope.
