Can you imagine growing up without Harry Potter? Fans around the world have cherished the beloved book series by J.K. Rowling for decades, but even the most hardcore fans may be in for a few surprises. Here are five secrets that J.K. Rowling revealed that are giving us life.

Wizard Whizz

Ever wonder how a wizard whizzes? Earlier this year, Rowling shared Harry Potter’s dirtiest secret: how they use the bathroom. According to Rowling, the wizards basically used to use to the restroom on the floor and clean it up with a vanishing spell before they adapted to Muggle plumbing techniques. Talk about #TMI!

Hagrid’s Patronus

Curious fans may wonder why Hagrid was never able to produce his own Patronus. Rowling revealed that Hagrid was actually never able to complete the complicated spell because he was prematurely kicked out of Hogwarts when he was a teen. This might actually be the saddest revelation of the entire series!

Voldemort’s Name

Whether you call him He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named or You-Know-Who, serious Harry Potter fans know that Voldemort is a force to be reckoned with. Only one problem though, we’ve been saying his name wrong. Rowling dished that Voldemort’s name (French for “flight of death”) is to be pronounced with a silent T.  Très chic!

Hogwarts’ Rivals

Although Rowling does mention two other European wizarding schools in Goblet of Fire, fans in North America are dying to know if there were any more schools in their neck of the woods. Rowling spilled the tea about Ilvermorny, the primary wizarding school in America with houses named after magical creatures.

Ron And Hermione’s Regret

While we all shipped Ron and Hermione’s relationship hard, Rowling just wasn’t feeling the same way. Her biggest revelation is that Ron and Hermione were never supposed to be together, and she only did it to appeal to fans. In her heart of hearts, Hermione was actually meant to be with Harry!
