There's nothing I love more than when J.K. Rowling indulges all of us Potterheads and gives us the answers to questions we may have been wondering about! Today she got on Twitter and did it again.
And so, the answers to three HP mysteries: solved, by Rowling herself!
What Happened to Fluffy?
"@jk_rowling what happened to Fluffy after he was released into the forest? I hope he returned to Hogwarts for the battle!"
"He was repatriated to Greece. Dumbledore liked to put Hagrid's more foolish acquisitions back where they belong - not the forest."
Rowling's Answer: "The Horcrux-receptacle has to be destroyed BEYOND REPAIR, so Harry would need to have DIED. #pleaseneveraskmethatoneagain"
Why is the Black residence where it is?
Charles Estrada "@jk_rowling Why is 12 Grimmauld place in the middle of a muggle house complex?"
"A Black ancestor coveted the beautiful house, so 'persuaded' the Muggle occupant to leave & put the appropriate spells on it."
