Last week, I reported that JK Rowling would be releasing a short story about the most hated character, Dolores Umbridge, on Pottermore. In reality, Rowling released six new stories on Pottermore that gave fans more background information on the wizarding world. The stories include information on the previous Ministers of Magic, thestrals, Sybil Trelawney, naming Seers, and history on Azkaban. Needless to say, Potterheads were exsatic about the information, though some were hoping for something different.
