JK Rowling Feels Bad For Killing a Character You Probably Don't Remember

Quick Harry Potter super fan quiz-who isĀ Florean Fortescue? Is he the briefly mentioned astronomy professor? A janitor at the Three Broomsticks? Or an ice cream man JK Rowling feels guilty for offing when she should be spending all energy on Fred and Tonks-related guilt? If you guessed the later, you’re going to own HP trivia. The wonderful, magical Rowling continued her habit of confusing Harry Potter fans by sharing her Fortescue tidbit through this years’ #PottermoreChristmas saying,
“I seemed to have him kidnapped and killed for no good reason. He is not the first wizard whom Voldemort murdered because he knew too much (or too little), but he is the only one I feel guilty about, because it was all my fault.”
Next I fully expect she’ll be apologizing for the unflattering color of Hermione’s Yule Ball dress. Let’s think big picture Ms Rowling.
