On the ninth anniversary of finishing the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, modern master of Twitter and creator of childhood dreams, tweeted photographic evidence of the way she celebrated putting down the pen for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It seems that Rowling's mischievous characters have a bit of their creator in them, as Rowling's method for saying adieu to the series was, in her own words, "wrong."
Rowling ended the epic series by scrawling on a bust in her hotel room.
The beautiful scrawl reads: "J.K. Rowling finished writing Harry Potter + the Deathly Hallows in this room (552) on 11th July 2007."
The bust is of the Greek god Hermes, who is most well-known as a messenger with sweet winged shoes. This particular Hermes still hangs out in his home at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, in the very same suite where Rowling ended the series. The suite is now known as the J.K. Rowling suite, and superfans can stay there for around $1,400 a night.
Staying in such an expensive room, it only makes sense that Rowling followed up her defiant act with some nice booze. "I downed a half bottle of champagne in the room fridge," Rowling tweeted.
In perhaps more pressing news, one fan took Rowling's tweet as an opportunity to ask this important question:
This is very important and needs an answer ASAP.
