Rowling says what jobs grown-up Harry, Ron, and Hermione take.

...

Rowling said her original epilogue was a lot more detailed, including the name of every child born to the Weasley clan in the past 19 years. (Victoire, who was snogging Teddy Lupin and Tonks son is Bill and Fleurs eldest.)

...

As for his occupation, Harry, along with Ron, is working at the Auror Department at the Ministry of Magic. After all these years, Harry is now the department head.

Harry and Ron utterly revolutionized the Auror Department, Rowling said. They are now the experts. It doesnt matter how old they are or what else theyve done.

Meanwhile, Hermione, Rons wife, is pretty high up in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, despite laughing at the idea of becoming a lawyer in Deathly Hallows.

... (more)


I must say, I'm disappointed that Harry's working for the MoM. I'd sort of hoped he'd be the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor. :(

But on the upside, Rowling's thinking about publishing a HP Encyclopedia. :bounce:

1. Wow, that's just what I had 'planned' for them. She didn't say what Ginny was doing.

2. I thought he'd be a prof, too ...
One of my co-workers figured he'd end up as Headmaster, eventually. (Still could happen ... people have been known to switch from government careers into education.)

4. I hope McGonagall remains as Headmistress of Hogwarts.
I had hoped that one day Hermione would take over from her, but it seems that none of the Hogwarts
staff marry or have children.

I wonder what Luna does? She was very valuable in the last book - that serentiy of hers never
wavered, even under attack.

6. More on other characters:
Mr. and Mrs. Longbottom: The damage is done.

There is no chance, however, that Nevilles parents, who were tortured into madness by Bellatrix Lestrange, ever left St. Mungos Hospital for Magical Maladies.

I know people really wanted some hope for that, and I can quite see why because, in a way, what happens to Nevilles parents is even worse than what happened to Harrys parents, Rowling said. The damage that is done, in some cases with very dark magic, is done permanently.

The fate of Hogwarts
Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster (McGonagall was really getting on a bit) as well as a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. That position is now as safe as the other teaching posts at Hogwarts, since Voldemorts death broke the jinx that kept a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor from remaining for more than a year.

While Rowling didnt clarify whether Harry, Ron and Hermione ever return to school to finish their seventh year, she did say she could see Harry popping up every now and again to give the odd talk on Defense Against the Dark Arts.

More details to come?
Rowling said she may eventually reveal more details in a Harry Potter encyclopedia, but even then, it will never be enough to satisfy the most ardent of her fans.

Im dealing with a level of obsession in some of my fans that will not rest until they know the middle names of Harrys great-great-grandparents, she said. Not that shes discouraging the Potter devotion!

I love it, she said. Im all for that.

7. thanks for the subject line spoilers

I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, and have been carefully avoiding looking into any of the HP threads to avoid finding out who gets killed off.

Guess I know who it isn't now. :eyes:

8. Sorry.
That occurred to me too late to edit it out.
