After Harry Potter author and resident Twitter Goddess JK Rowling tweeted a message of love and admiration for Ireland's recent gay marriage vote outcome by proposing a marriage between Dumbledore and Gandalf, the Westboro Baptist Church (regarded as the resident cesspool of humanity) challenged her fantastic meme by saying they'd picket any such union:



Rowling shut them down deftly, but one twitter user suggested that may not have been the right thing to do:



JK rebutted by saying the WBC wasn't what was important, but rather her show of support for those who need it:



You go, JK Rowling!

jk rowling twitter J.K. Rowling Shares Her Rejection Letters to Inspire Fans

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.

“It would depend on the script,” Daniel Radcliffe told Radio Times. “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”

As an orphan, Harry must have some serious questions about his lineage. Aunt Petunia probably has some answers about the Evans side. Hopefully there's a genealogy potion he can take to figure out about his father's wizarding side. On second thought, he can probably just ask Hermione.



But for us fans, JK Rowling has it covered. In a new piece for her site, Pottermore, Rowling goes into detail about the Potter clan and how they came into possession of one of The Deathly Hallows. It also turns out they have a long history of benevolence toward their Muggle neighbors.

"Ralston Potter, who was a member from 1612-1652, and who was a great supporter of the Statute of Secrecy (as opposed to declaring war on the Muggles, as more militant members wished to do) and Henry Potter... Henry caused a minor stir when he publicly condemned then Minister for Magic, Archer Evermonde, who had forbidden the magical community to help Muggles waging the First World War."

Check out the full piece at Pottermore.
