Harry Potter is back! Well, sort of.

Mashable.com reports Potter scribe J.K. Rowling made millions of wishes come true on Tuesday morning when she penned a new short Harry Potter tale and posted it on the Pottermore website. Too bad that act of kindness crashed the site.



The Pottermore site recovered by 9:30 a.m. ET and Rowling's Rita Skeeter post should be viewable by most site visitors. You may, however, need a free account to read the Daily Prophet article. As noted below, Skeeter, who is supposed to be reporting on the Quidditch finals, devotes this article to the arrival of Dumbledore's Army's original six members (along with countless other DA members) arriving at the tournament. Among them is a 34-year-old Harry Potter who has "a couple of threads of silver in the famous Auror's hair."
