A few weeks ago, the world’s greatest wizard, Hogwarts headmaster, and best friend, Ron Weasley, had an incredibly awkward and difficult time at the school, so much so that he decided to take a walk through the grounds to help other students get over their shock and confusion.
The only person who got to see him, though, was his friend Hermione Granger.
The two, who were separated by just three years at the time, became close friends and became close to each other in return.
While Ron had always been a bit of a shy person, his sudden and powerful friendship with Hermione made him feel more comfortable.
This new friendship was what prompted Ron to take his own life on December 19, 1981, at the age of 16.
He left behind a large memorial to Hermione in his house, which he had designed himself.
He wrote in his diary that the two had been inseparable since their first year at Hogwarts and that he was proud to have known her since she was a young girl.
The school’s famous Quidditch team also remembers the two, with team captain and future Headmaster of the school Harry Potter, writing in his journal, “I am very proud of her, and I can’t imagine what it must be like to be in the same room with her.”
“Harry Potter” (aka “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” in the Harry Potter series) was the first book in the series, and is the second book in “The Order of the Phoenix.”
Rowling’s decision to create a new letter to the reader in the seventh book, “The Casual Vacancy,” came shortly after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which has left her bedridden.
Rowling has since released a book called “The Adventures of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child,” which chronicles her recovery and offers a bit more closure for the fans.
The “Cursed Child” series also includes the sixth book, titled “The Cursed Child: Part 1,” which is also based on the first two books in the “Curse of the Crimson Throne” series.
This year’s sixth book “The Deathly Hallows: Part 2” was released on July 17, and the seventh “The Book of the Stranger” book was released in September.
The Harry Potter franchise is currently available on Netflix, and fans of the series will be able to catch up on the entire “Catch 22” series, which will follow the events of the final books in “Harry and the Half-Blood Prince” trilogy in 2017.
