With Harry Potter being such an ingrained part of our lives that we can't help but drop magical terminology into our muggle conversations, it was always going to be a bittersweet moment when J.K. Rowling decided to stop weaving her magical tales.
Although the joyous occasion of The Cursed Child hitting shelves is something every Potterhead is celebrating, the launch is also a bit of a sad one; as J.K Rowling has announced that the story around Harry is officially over.
This is us rn:
"He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done. This is the next generation, you know," she told Reuters. "So, I'm thrilled to see it realised so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."
As much as we'd like J.K Rowling to keep writing about Harry until there's a worldwide cartridge drought and no available storage on any computer ever, we can only hope she'll still keep writing about the new generation of Potter kids.
That's not unreasonable, right? In the meantime, someone grab us a shot of firewhisky, a chocolate frog, and a scrap of parchment. We need to make our peace with the end.
