(Newser) – JK Rowling, apparently not adjusting so well to post-Harry Potter life in the eight years since the last book dropped, has released yet another new story on her Pottermore website—a biography of sorts of one of the author's alleged "favorite off-stage characters" from the Series That Shall Apparently Never Die. Yes, Celestina Warbeck, ye olde "Singing Sorceress," makes her actual debut—complete with an actual music video of her smash hit, "You Stole My Cauldron, but You Can’t Have My Heart" (it's in the gallery, you're welcome)—after what BuzzFeed calls "throwaway references to her in three Harry Potter books." "I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style," Rowling writes on Today, which has the whole thing, complete with references to Celestina's "Flighty Aphrodite tour."

Why did this article have to be written in such an obnoxiously negative tone? I just finished reading another article (on this very same site) about how this series of books had a massive effect on the minds of a generation and now this article is giving her the snark treatment for slightly expanding on that enormous world a few times this year? Bring back the annoying button.

Awesome! Keep writing until he's the new Gandalf old and grey with a big beard! Writers write and a good story is a good story. Keep em coming, I've never read any of them but I like the movies. I'm more of a Robert E. Howard reader myself, but I support her all the way.

I'd like to see/read more of the HP world. A lot of characters could be followed or even prequeled. There were some great stories.
