Random Potter Facts

 I came across a list of facts the other day which were not included in the Harry Potter books, but that Joanne Rowling had revealed in various interviews after Book 7 had been released. I have absolutely no reliable source for any of this, so you're welcome to call it ramblings and ignore it all.

A lot of these facts I already knew, but some were really cool to hear :-)

~ Azkaban no longer uses Dementors as guardians. 

~George Weasley married Angelina Johnson and had 2 children named Fred and Roxanne. 

~Harry made sure that the Wizarding world knew that Snape was a hero and on Dumbledore’s side. 

~Slytherin House became more diluted and was no longer solely pureblood; however its dark reputation lingers. 

~Harry lost the ability to speak Parseltongue. 
(My fave I think... totally makes sense.)

~Umbridge was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for crimes against Muggleborns. 
(Never mind, this one is my fave.)

~The Resurrection Stone is now buried in the Forbidden Forest after being pressed into the ground by a centaur’s hoof. 

~ Voldemort’s curse on the DADA position at Hogwarts has been lifted. 

~Viktor Krum fell in love with a woman back home in Bulgaria. 

~The Death Eater’s Dark Marks eventually faded to look like a scar. It will no longer burn or hurt. 

~ The Quibbler is back to publishing articles about the lunatic fringe & is appreciated for its unintentional humour. 

~Members of the DA still have their coins, as they are like badges of honor. 

~Neville Longbottom worked as an Auror before moving on as the Herbology professor at Hogwarts. 

~The remaining Death Eaters were killed or imprisoned in Azkaban for their crimes, with the exception of the Malfoy's. 

~Luna Lovegood married the grandson of the Newt Scamander, author of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ 

~Firenze survived his wounds and was welcomed back into the Centaur herd. 

~Harry will never become Headmaster of Hogwarts since an academic career just isn’t him. 

~Hagrid was still working at Hogwarts by 2017, at 88 years old. 

~Draco Malfoy really cares about his son, Scorpius Malfoy. He is growing him up to be a better person than he was. 

~Centaurs realized that “pro-human leanings" were not shameful. 

~Draco and Harry never became friends, but they did come to understand and appreciate each other better. 

~Hermione tells Scrimgeour that she is not planning to embark on a career in Magical Law. Ironically, that’s where she ends up. 

~After his death, Voldemort is forced to exist in the stunted infant-like form that Harry sees in the King’s Cross-like Limbo. 

~Aberforth is still at the Hog’s Head “playing with his goats”. 

~The number of Dementors have been greatly diminished because despair and degradation have been lessened in the world. 

~Arthur Weasley fixed Sirius’ motorbike and gave it to Harry. 

~Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster (“McGonagall was really getting on a bit”) as well as a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. That position is now as safe as the other teaching posts at Hogwarts, since Voldemort’s death broke the jinx that kept a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor from remaining for more than a year. 

~Hagrid never married, although he had a relationship with a giantess. 

~Kingsley Shacklebolt became the Minister of Magic after the Second Wizarding War. 

~Harry will not train to be an animagus; his “energies are going to be concentrated elsewhere and he’s not going to have time to do that."

~In the aftermath of the war, the Order was disbanded once and for all. 

~Luna has twin boys named Lorcan and Lysander with Rolf Scamander.and apparently travels the world, looking for mad creatures. 

~Hermione advanced the rights of magical creatures & eradicated the old pro-pure-blood laws in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. 

~The head of the Auror Office as of 2007 is Harry Potter. 

~Lavender Brown was attacked by Fenrir Greyback. Hermione saved her but she was already injured. What happened to her later on was never really told. 

~Neville Longbottom’s students were impressed when he showed them his Dumbledore’s Army’s Coin. 

~Harry, Ron and Neville didn’t return to Hogwarts for their 7th year. They went straight to get training as aurors. 

~Harry would take his family to visit Dudley’s when they were in the neighbourhood (occasions dreaded by James, Albus and Lily). 

~Harry sometimes visits Hogwarts to give talks on DADA. 

~Hermione is James’ godmother. 

~Hermione Granger was the only member of the trio who returned to Hogwarts to complete their seventh year. 

~Ron worked with George in WWW for some time and then became an Auror. 

~Ginny became a professional Quidditch player for the Holyhead Harpies and later became the senior Quidditch correspondent for the Daily Prophet. 

~After the war, Hermione found her parents in Australia and restored their memories.

Good times. Gotta love it.
