Harry Potter fans around the globe commended the Boy Who Lived with Harry Potter Book Night, an occasion intended to welcome new and old readers alike to investigate J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World together.

As first-time and long-lasting “Potter” perusers imparted their encounters online to the hash-tag #HarryPotterBookNight, Rowling herself got involved to impart how touched she was by the occasion — to such an extent that she even connected with some unassuming “Potter” fans and revealed three secrets:

1.) Are you puzzled about Hagrid’s three-headed dog Fluffy? So, was one twitter fan named Emily Strong’s brain suggested the conversation starter to Rowling, and earned the reaction she was searching for:

2.)When Tumblr usesr gardenburger inquired as to why the Horcrux inside Harry Potter wasn’t demolished when he was attacked by the basilisk in “Chambers of Secrets,” a kindred user prompted Rowling excitedly answered to this curious question:

3.) When “Potter” fan Charles Estrada pondered with an elevated volume concerning why Sirius Black’s home, “Order of the Phoenix,” exists amidst a Muggle group, Rowling tolled in with an unprompted answer:

@CharlsEC A Black ancestor coveted the beautiful house, so ‘persuaded’ the Muggle occupant to leave & put the appropriate spells on it.
