JK Rowling Sends Letter To ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Telling Him He's a Gryffindor

We already knew JK Rowling was amazing. Besides authoring the book series that dominated an entire generation’s childhood, she’s proven to be truly grateful to her fans for her success.
Johnnie Blue, who goes by @Johnnie_Rowling on Twitter, had interacted with the Harry Potter author in the past on the website. He met JK for the first time this past July at a book signing and gave her a gift – a notebook with a handwritten letter inside describing how her books helped him through a difficult time in his life where he dealt with bullying and confidence.

A month later, Johnnie received a reply.
JK Rowling Note
Here’s what it reads:
Dear Johnny,
You have fantastic handwriting. That’s not the most important thing I’ve got to say to you, but I thought I’d mention it — I’m a connoisseur.
On to more important things:
What you say about Harry helping you at what was clearly a dreadful time in your life means more to me than I can easily express. I freely confess that I loathe bullying and the way it is still so often “handled” in schools. Your experience is shocking and disturbing and that you have turned out to be a compassionate, moral, highly motivated person is high testimony to your courage. Gryffindor for you, my lad…
Thank you so much for the stunningly beautiful notebook. I love it.
This letter seems to be a series of non-sequiturs, but why break the pattern: I have family roots in Ayrshire — Arran, to be precise. And I’ve never been there. Embarrassing, isn’t it? Don’t tell the Nationalists.
I’m sure we’ll see each other again. In the meantime, I’ll watch out for you on Twitter.
Love from Jo
 
Is it not every Pothead’s dream to be told they are a Gryffindor by JK Rowling? Excuse me, I have a letter to write.
