...AND we get to see it!

Wow. thats a lot of $$$. Go Jo! I cant wait 2 read it

Avatar Image says:

Hm, the flying motorbike :)

Avatar Image says:

first? it was nice to read something new of JKR’s…very cute! Oh how i miss her writing…

Avatar Image says:

It’s online NOW!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Her story was really great! Very light-hearted…I just wish there was more of it!!!

Avatar Image says:

HAHAHA don’t mind the ‘first’. lol

Avatar Image says:

Ohhh I loved it! Though it makes me want more so badly! =D

Avatar Image says:

I liked it, Jo’s handwriting was hard for me to read!! :)

Avatar Image says:

That was fun to read. And yes, I agree with Dina. I miss Jo’s writing. Of course, I’m still rereading HP, but I enjoyed reading something that I hadn’t read numerous times.

I’m totally amazed at the amount of money for a post-card, even if it is from Jo Rowling. (That’s more than we paid for our first house back in 1977.

Avatar Image says:

Whoa! That was awesome! So glad she wrote it. :-)

Avatar Image says:

Elvendork! That’s the name of my future child as of this moment!

The story was great, though I had to skip over a few words for lack of being able to read her handwriting.

Avatar Image says:

Loved it. Sirius and James—the original Fred and George!

Why do I seem to remember some mention of Sirius and James and Muggle policemen from before this short story? Have I read too much fan fiction, or has Jo referenced this before?

Avatar Image says:

“From the prequel I am NOT working on”

hahahhahaha

I love how she has to repeat that all the time.

Avatar Image says:

Oh my gosh, I know it’s not about Jo, but I just read Neil Gaiman’s story and it is fantastic! Werechair!!! I need to buy this now.

Avatar Image says:

The Waterstone’s website is not loading. Can someone host the image on their own server or something?

Avatar Image says:

Dear Jo

HOLY FLYING MOTORBIKE

SIRIUS BLACK RIDES AGAIN!!!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

SQUEEEEEE

That is all :) xxxxxxxx

Avatar Image says:

Let the speculations begin!

Just read it twice and I agree with Bandersnatch: it’s the orginial Fred and George (Elvendork, brilliant). The story for me was long enough to “get into the story” and pick up the “speed”. But she always leaves me wanting more…

This time, she leaves enough things unmentioned to start speculating: who were the pair escaping from (and why weren’t they flying)? Who were the 3 men that came into the alley on broomsticks? Death Eaters they stopped by upending the car? And were James and Sirius really wearing Order of the Phoenix Shirts? It was nice to see Sirius’ motorbike appear again… Why didn’t the MOM appear after such a blatant expression of magic in front of Muggles to obliviate the memories of the police men?

Don’t you agree that the next thing JKR could very well write is a police novel?

By the way, most media are reporting the pair escapes by broomsticks, but that’s not true of course…

Avatar Image says:

That was HILARIOUS XD ELVENDORK, IT’S UNISEX! I can’t stop laughing.

Avatar Image says:

I love it! I want an Order of the Phoenix t-shirt!!

Why does the police car go onto its back wheels?

Avatar Image says:

Couldn’t say it better Sue!!

Avatar Image says:

I think to make the ppl on brooms to crash into the bottom of the car

Avatar Image says:

top of car i mean

Avatar Image says:

Order of the Phoenix T-shirts? Hmmm… I thought the tees had pictures of Golden Snidges (or perhaps Snitches).

Loved Tom Stoppard’s drabble about Idiomatic Farm!

Avatar Image says:

Great read! Loved the Griffyndor t-shirts and the sound of deatheaters(?) crashing.

Avatar Image says:

I’m definitely buying the compilation book…this prequel was great, and so were the submissions by other fave authors of mine!!

Avatar Image says:

IT WAS SO GOOD. OH JAMES. SO MUCH LOVE!

“AND DON’T FORGET: ELVENDORK! IT’S UNISEX!”

Avatar Image says:

OMG I’m FREAKING out. You should have seen me when it was loading. That was amazing to read. I love her handwriting. It’s so bubbly. THANK-YOU JK!!!!!!!! hehe Elvendork :D

Avatar Image says:

@ Sue The part with the “three men on broom” stickes confused me aswell. It could have been Three = these? There is also no other mention of those broomsticks in the story.

but I am just not sure. Can somebody help me?

Avatar Image says:

Ohh, silly me, I read it wrong! I thought it was James & Sirius that were on broomsticks and the car stopped them, I did wonder why they were so cheerful afterwards!

I definitely think they’re OotP t-shirts =)

Avatar Image says:

Let the fan fic begin!!

Avatar Image says:

I found it hard to read. if only waterstones had a zoome function.. oh well, no doubt someone will make the text more readable.

Avatar Image says:

eeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkk!!!!!!!! that was so exciting-i got to the website i think pretty much as it came out! its soooooooooooo cool!

Avatar Image says:

I typed it up for myself so I could read it more easily; would I be allowed to email it to the site so others can more easily access the joy of Elvendork without having to decipher Jo’s handwriting? Or, er, is that violating some major copyright laws that could send me to forms of torture involving curses?

Avatar Image says:

awesome! so good to read something new from jo and, it’s like everyone else is saying, it leaves you asking even more questions. brilliant.

Avatar Image says:

37th!

Avatar Image says:

I really want to read the story…. but I CAN’T READ HER HANDWRITING!!! i wish they would have typed it out!!!

Avatar Image says:

Hey, I just typed it out mainly to figure out what it said, but if you have a hard time with Jo’s handwriting, here’s the whole story:

The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted, ‘whoa!’ Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without unseating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail light, vanished up the narrow side street. ‘We’ve got ‘em now!’ cried PC Anderson excitedly. ‘That’s a dead end!’ Leaning hard on the steering wheel and crashing his gears, Fisher scraped half the paint off the flank of the car as he forced it up the alleyway in pursuit. There in the headlights sat their quarry, stationary at last after a quarter of an hour’s chase. The two riders were trapped between a towering brick wall and the police car, which was now crawling towards them like some growling, luminous-eyed predator. There was so little space between the car doors and the walls of the alley that Fisher and Anderson had difficulty extricating themselves from the vehicle. It injured their dignity to have to inch, crab-like, towards the miscreants. Fisher dragged his generous belly along the wall, tearing buttons off his shirt as he went and finally snapping off the wing mirror with his backside. ‘Get off the bike!’ he bellowed at the smirking youths, who sat basking in the flashing blue light as though enjoying it. They did as they were told. Finally pulling free from the broken wing mirror, Fisher glared at them. They seemed to be in their late teens. The one who had been driving had long black hair; his insolent good looks reminded Fisher unpleasantly of his daughter’s guitar-playing, layabout boyfriend. The second boy also had black hair, though his was short and stuck up in all directions; he wore glasses and had a broad grin. Both were dressed in T-shirts emblazoned with a large golden bird, the emblem, no doubt, of some deafening, tuneless rock band. ‘No helmets!’ Fisher yelled, pointing from one uncovered head to the other. ‘Exceeding the speed limit by – by a considerable amount!’ (In fact, the speed registered had been greater than Fisher was prepared to accept that any motorcycle could travel.) ‘Failing to stop for the police!’ ‘We’d have loved to stop for a chat,’ said the boy in glasses, ‘only we were trying -‘ ‘Don’t get smart – you two are in a heap of trouble!’ snarled Anderson. ‘Names!’ ‘Names?’ repeated the long-haired driver. ‘Er – well, let’s see. There’s Wilberforce…Bathsheba…Elvendork…’ ‘And what’s nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy or a girl,’ said the boy in glasses. ‘Oh, our names, did you mean?’ asked the first, as Anderson spluttered with rage. ‘You should’ve said! This here is James Potter, and I’m Sirius Black!’ ‘Things’ll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheeky little -‘ But neither James nor Sirius was paying attention. They were suddenly as alert as gundogs, staring past Fisher and Anderson, over the roof of the police car at the dark mouth of the alley. Then, with identical, fluid movements, they reached into their back pockets. For the space of a heartbeat both policemen imagined guns gleaming at them, but a second later they saw that the motorcyclists had drawn nothing more than - ‘Drumsticks?’ jeered Anderson. ‘Right pair of jokers, aren’t you? Right, we’re arresting you on a charge of -‘ But Anderson never got to name the charge. James and Sirius had shouted something incomprehensible, and the beams from the headlights had moved. The policemen wheeled around, then staggered backwards. Three men were flying – actually flying – up the alley on broomsticks – and at the same moment, the police car was rearing up on its back wheels. Fisher’s knees buckled; he sat down hard; Anderson tripped over Fisher’s legs and fell on top of him, as flump – [bump?] – crunch – they heard the men on brooms slam into the upended car and fall, apparently insensible, to the ground, while broken bits of broomstick clattered down around them. The motorbike had roared into life again. His mouth hanging open, Fisher mustered the strength to look back at the two teenagers. ‘Thanks very much!’ called Sirius over the throb of the engine. ‘We owe you one!’ ‘Yeah, nice meeting you!’ said James. ‘And don’t forget: Elvendork! It’s unisex!’ There was an earth-shaking crash, and Fisher and Anderson threw their arms around each other in fright; their car had just fallen back to the ground. Now it was the motorcycle’s turn to rear. Before the policemen’s disbelieving eyes, it took off into thin air: James and Sirius zoomed away into the night sky, their tail light twinkling behind them like a vanishing ruby.

From the prequel I am not working on – but that was fun! JK Rowling 2008

Avatar Image says:

woah, I don’t know why that all appeared in one block of text, but I’m sure you can sort it all out. sorry if there’s any typos. I typed it up rather fast…

Avatar Image says:

not the easiest to read compared to some of her other stuff…she obviously rushed this piece. : – )

Am I the only one who didn’t really have trouble with her handwriting? =P Her Gs look like Ps sometimes but that’s about it! [Unfortunate in the word ‘rage’!]

Avatar Image says:

A little tip to make it easier to read: right click and zoom. It really helped me out!

Avatar Image says:

Don’t Forget: Elvendork! It’s unisex!

OHMY I’m dead. That was so much fun to read!

Avatar Image says:

She made a “seriously black” joke! SQUEE!

(And I’m naming my kid Elvendork… Hehe…)

Avatar Image says:

Phew. Glad I didn’t post it, then. =D Very kind of the person that did, though- good intentions and all.

Avatar Image says:

I read it! It is AMAZING! (Elvendork-its unisex) I LUV it. It was like the kinda think Fred and George would do or say. Who were those 3 men that came off the broom sticks? Did James and Sirius obliviate their memories?

Avatar Image says:

I loved it! The story was really cute, but iwish there was more. Jo’s handwritting was fairly easy to read, though I did have to skip some words, but I loved the story. :)

Avatar Image says:

I love it sooo much!! I really have missed Jo’s writing. Although she isn’t planning on writing a prequel, I hope she does. I know, the odds against it are 99-1. “So you’re telling me there’s a chance?!”

Avatar Image says:

They short totally adapt this into a short film and stick it after the credits of one of the future films ;)

Avatar Image says:

Magali, thanks for the great tip about the zoom!

Avatar Image says:

Ok, you guys, I’m having a most embarrassing French moment here, cause I don’t understand the “Elvendork” joke! Can somebody please explain?

good thing I’m behind my computer – blushing really bad!

hihi

Avatar Image says:

“She made a “seriously black” joke!” I thought the exact same thing loonygrl90, the fanfiction cliche to end them all :D That was fun to read, even in such a short piece of writing she can remind us that the Marauders had a sense of humour. Now I feel all teased and I want to read some more!

Avatar Image says:

I feel like in the old good times when paragraphs from a soon to be published book were released by JK… Had a wonderful time reading this, and part of the fun was deciphering her hand writing! Triple Whoa !

Avatar Image says:

I’m afraid to read it :-( What if there’s some words I can’t read? It’ll ruin the experience… Sniff.

I’m just a big chicken!

Avatar Image says:

That was cool! I guess Harry has his cheekiness not only from his Father, but his Godfather as well.

Avatar Image says:

It’s a really nice story… short and.. short.. hehe..

I just had a difficult time reading it because of Jo’s handwriting… I wonder if that’s how she had written the “Tales of Beedle the Bard”.. what a headache it would be…

I hope Jo would really write a prequel…

Avatar Image says:

Ok, I found somewhere that put it up in a typed out version so I dared the plunge and read it.

I liked it, but… I have to say, beforehand, when people were guessing what it’d be about, there were people who said they didn’t like it being about Sirius and James alone, because they already knew stuff about those two, and they were the two most obnoxious Marauders. I remember saying that, maybe, because they’re older (17-18), they’ll have grown up a bit more- because why else would Lily have fallen in love with James?

But I guess James has always stayed the same obnoxious little kid…

So I REALLY LIKED IT, really, but James…... I expected something a bit different. My mistake I guess :-)

Avatar Image says:

I think it was a brilliant way to raise money for charity! Yay to those who organized the event, and yay to JKR for participating =)))

James and Sirius are abominable though (pretty in character, I must say). I didn’t find their jokes funny, and felt sorry for the policemen. However, I’m not disappointed in them, because I’ve never liked them.

Avatar Image says:

See? the comment of elkmaria? Tthat’s what I mean, and I thought Jo might’ve proven that, even though we were already sure that SIRIUS still had been like that, maybe James had changed a bit before he went and had a kid.

But I think I was just a bit out of it. I should reread the Potters! Bad emmy.

Avatar Image says:

I loveeeeed that!!!!!! Just makes me want more!!!!

Love you, Jo!!!!! XXXX

Avatar Image says:

It’s unisex!!!

Avatar Image says:

I read the story, and it seemed a bit rushed and out of JK Rowling’s usual style. I was a bit disappointed actually : ( the attempts at humour also seemed a bit lame. Elvendork for instance, it just seemed random and almost ridiculous. But hey, thats just my view, I’m sure lots of others enjoyed the story. Thanks Leaky for giving us the links!

Avatar Image says:

OMG that was awesome! :D

Avatar Image says:

Absolutely brilliant!!!

Just like everyone else – how I WISH there was more!!!

Loved James & Sirius together – what a team!

Avatar Image says:

@ Dauod Khan

It’s normal to feel a bit rushed: Jo only had a really short space to write it in (also hence her cramped writing probably)...

Avatar Image says:

What I don’t get though, is WHY they put it online to read. Surely that must make the sales of the actual book go down?

Avatar Image says:

that was cute. <3

Avatar Image says:

Honestly, I was underwhelmed. As a fan, everything by Rowling is always humbly accepted, but it read like fan fiction… for my taste. And I was as confused as some of the other readers by what exactly happened with the car. After re-reading I got it. Rushed, I say. But nevertheless thankee, say!

Avatar Image says:

I am so melancholy for the release excitement of last year; this helped a bit. (not as much as another HP book, mind you…)

Thanks, Jo.

Avatar Image says:

@ toilandtrouble

Again, rushed is normal: she only had two sides of a small card to write all that info on

Avatar Image says:

The main ‘sale’ for the card is already in the auction yesterday. i guess they’re just doing the postcard book to see if others will participate in making this world a better place _

Avatar Image says:

This makes me so sad all over again that Harry’s parents didn’t make it. James is such a laugh….”ELVENDORK! IT’S UNISEX!” And even though we had Sirius for three books, we never really got to see the side of him that Jo shows in this cute little prequel. LOOOOVE IT!

Avatar Image says:

it was adorable. i would want to read the typed-out version though. eheh… couldn’t understand some words…

Avatar Image says:

Im printing 3 copies, and not reading it until I get to school. Then my HP friends and I will read it together! AHHH! got up extra early for this!

Avatar Image says:

Love it! C’mon Jo, prequel! prequel! prequel! :)

Avatar Image says:

Wow Jo’s writing is similar to mine. And just as hard to read XD

Avatar Image says:

Haha, that was a cute story.( Nothing earth shattering of course, because we already know everything important.) But it was still wicked funny.

Avatar Image says:

For the peeps who can’t read the handwritten version all that well: I made a little effort ;-)

The speeding motorcycler took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted ‘whoa!’ Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without unseating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail light, vanished up the narrow side street.

From the prequel that I am NOT working on- but that was fun! JK Rowlilng 2008

Avatar Image says:

Like every one else said it was nice to have something new to read from JK, although I had trouble with her handwriting in places. How fun would it be for her to come out with another book (well I would need a ton more books actually to be ever be satisfied) but what fun it would be. I think however if she would ever write, the prequal that she isn’t working on, it should just show up one day. No big hype about it coming out just pop there it is. Can you imagine the excitment over that? People would be flying to bookstores. Oh well just a thought. Excited about the next movies and perhaps one day an encyclopedia.

Avatar Image says:

woweee. its so good to read some of her writting again. thought i had abit of trouble reading a few words. but i still loved it. i love her ‘of’s wish my of’s were like that :-P.

Avatar Image says:

Although I enjoyed JK’s story, I must say that I UTTERLY LOVED Neil Gaimans. He is such a fantastic writer. But again, yay for more HP!

Avatar Image says:

People, don’t be stupid and actally but it now!

Avatar Image says:

somebody please help, somehow I cant get to JK’s card

Avatar Image says:

wow…JKR put her name on that piece of crap? That to me sound like a lame fan fiction!

Avatar Image says:

@ kitkat

I don’t think Jo is able to write crap. This is not part of the Harry Potter saga that we all love. It’s something different- or at least sort of. We may have expected a HP story, but this is a Marauders story. Nothing lame about it!

Avatar Image says:

What an exhilerating short piece of writing. I am feeling absolutely elated having finished reading it. Man, those two boys sure were naughty! Though we knew that but to be there witnessing James and Sirius in their heyday is absolute joy! These were the Maurauders! These were the boys that Fred and George worshipped :) The humour was top notch, child friendly, and a little wicked. The policemen with his “generous” belly getting out of the car had me in fits as well as Sirius’s cocky quips.

I am thinking that the 3 men on brooms may well have been from the MOM itself! That would make James and Sirius very naughty indeed. They couldn’t have been deatheaters as then the story would not have been so light-hearted methinks.

The T-shirts are probably Griffindor, not Order of the Pheonix.

But Sirius and the motorbike has to be the coolest part of this delightful segment!

Avatar Image says:

i just read it. i enjoyed it but my eyes really hurt from reading her handwriting.

Avatar Image says:

OMG. That was amazing! I just wish she was woking on the prequel….

And like others have already said – it was great to read her writing again!

Avatar Image says:

@ Professor Potter

Why do you think the T-shirts are Gryffindor? They said it was a bird on it, no? And it makes sense- they are member of the Order, and proud of it…

Avatar Image says:

How much i miss Jo’s writing. It was a breath of fresh air albeit a very quick one. Now we all know what she meant that fred and george were like sirius and james. R.I.P fred ): It’s an ingenious bit of writing, even though i wonder how they managed to get away with that breach of secrecy. More please?? (: Its nice for this to come after having finished DH for the ? time (loss count). DH still manages to tear me up even after so many rereads and knowing the story beforehand. Thanks Jo, you’ve really created a masterpiece that will be remembered forever as a timeless classic that transcends all ages. I really can’t wait for the scottish book. And a prequel? Pretty Please?? (:

Avatar Image says:

Well, I went online this morning – and the link just kept giving me a “coming soon” message. So, too many hits people – we broke Waterstones! Tried from work and as I thought (My company server sucks) can’t read it there either. So found a typed version online from Hpprogs – that needs serious betaing, but otherwise it was great!

Elvendork!! I can see the t-shirts now.

Avatar Image says:

IF JKR ever writes a full novel prequel, I really hope its “The Short and Tragic life of Regulus A. Black”.... imagine having Sirius for a brother? and a family like the Blacks? Bella as a young woman? Lucius Malfoy courting Narcissa while Ted Tonks chases Andromeda? or playing Quidditch against James Potter? the tone and style would probably need to be totally different than what we’ve enjoyed in the HP novels…

Avatar Image says:

Emmy, I’m thinking that the policeman sees a griffin but dont really know what the heck that is so classes it as some bird. The griffindor symbol has a somewhat rock n roll look too. I just dont think a member of the Order would be flaunting themselves as such because arent they supposed to be a an inconspicuos society (though not secret)? Also, would they have been a member at that age? Regardless, this is an interpretation I like and I could be 100% wrong as I all too often have been ;) Since it is not clarified in this short story, I let my imagination and feelings run in that direction.

Avatar Image says:

ok, rowling isn’t the only one feeling like a relapsing addict. New Harry Potter, but only 800 words… What a tease.

Avatar Image says:

I like it, but I just don’t get the Elvendork joke, is it more than a sily name?

Avatar Image says:

Can somebody explain me the Elvendork joke? I’m italian, I haven’t got it. I’ve just understand that it’s a name for both male and female, but I don’t understand why the name itself its funny :O

Avatar Image says:

i think the three men on broomsticks were people from the ministry trying to get them for underage magic maybe? but james and sirius lifted the car up using magic to make them crash into it ;]

Avatar Image says:

@ Professor Potter

When reading the story I also first thought the cop just mistook the Gryffindor sign, but I guess both is possible, since everyone must’ve known that James and Sirius were Order members? Maybe I’m wrong…

Ah well, good luck with all further imagining! :-)

Avatar Image says:

@ Terka, bakke, and all others not getting the Elvendork joke

There’s nothing more to it. It’s just funny because it is! It’s a silly sounding name, and the funny thing about the unisex thing is the way James talks about it. If you don’t get it, it’s ok: you just have a different type of humor. It’s just a bit of absurdity by James. Could’ve been any name!

Avatar Image says:

Although a prequel novel would be lovely, I dont think it is a necessity. JK wrote a chronicle with a big picture in mind that unravelled on epic scale. The key to the Harry Potter chronicles were the numerous revelations. Unless JK can think of new significant revelations in the past that we do not know of, the prequels would not make a significant read, however much enjoyable they may be. I personally would love Rowling to just write whatever come to her mind that she feels would make for a great story, whether it be a childrens book, crime novel, or political fairytale etc., But dont get me wrong, if she can think of a great new story to tell in our favourite wizarding world, then bring it on, girl !!

Avatar Image says:

A political fairy tale… How about that! Cinderella ruling the country :-D

Or Snow White fighting for dwarfs’ legal rights!

Avatar Image says:

Thanks emmy :) I thought there was something hidden in the sound of the name ;)

Avatar Image says:

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! And heartbreaking at the same time. I guess it would be very hard for Jo to come up with prequel plots that wouldn’t impact the “future” HP books. Had there been dangerous, involved adventures in James’ past, surely someone (probably Dumbledore) would have made mention of them to Harry. And since he never did, one has to assume there weren’t any. Too bad for us.

Haha, yeah the political fairytale intrigued me too, just what the heck could that be? I wonder if it would be something similar to an ancient China dynasty story set in a world with trolls, orcs, dwarfs and fairys.

Or could be something set in real world. A President being visited by a an evil imp disguised as an angel telling him to invade countries and deluding him with the fact that he will be worshipped and be rich…

If it is a political fairytale then I hope JK will tease us with the last word or 2 of her new book. Maybe “mass destruction”, “known unknown”, or maybe even “scar”! Ok I’m getting silly now…

Awwwww….. I miss sirius and james so much and Jo’s writing too…. :(

The story was wonderful….Wish it could have been a bit more longer….....Anyways after a long time I feel the satisfaction of reading something HP related…....Thank you Jo!

People! This is the hight of the war. The guys on broomsticks were definitely Death Eaters; not even James and Sirius would waste the MOM’s time and effort when everyone’s fearing for their lives like that.

Avatar Image says:

Picazo, part of the fun is to work out her hand writing ;) To start with her Gs look like Ps. How on earth she develop writing it like that is beyond me but I love the way she tries to squeeze her story on the card.

Avatar Image says:

This makes me want more so bad!!! Her writing is so addictive that there should be a warning label attached.

It was brilliant. And don’t forget, not only did she not have very much room to write, but the medium also meant that she could not edit. So, no editing, all rough draft, there you go.

Actually, that is a question I desperately wish I would have asked for the Pottercast interview. “How different is the finished work from what you originally wrote out?” Of course I am an editor for a living, so editing secrets (especially of JKR) get me all giddy and excited.

Oh, Jo, you conniving little godly genius! That was the best piece of fan service I have ever written. Quick, somebody make the T-Shirts James and Sirius were wearing! XD. And I definitely see Fred and George in them. This was classic Jo. This could of made a great addition as a Pensieve chapter in DH. No clue how, though! Anyway, this was EPIC. I am still laughing my head off. Jo, you are God.

@Emmy: Wait? You like me doing the “Gloating Jo” impersonation? I’ll keep doing it….just kidding. So….who wants to start a rock band called “Sirius, James and the Muggle Police?”

Avatar Image says:

Eventhough I am a devoted pureblood witch the “hidden side” of me that is a muggle is called Alyssa Anderson – I about died , when I read my last name in her prequel. yes I know Im probably over reacting but, to have my last name in part of Harry Potter – Muggle or not is pretty darn cool. I wish though it could be published for everyone.

Avatar Image says:

:-( No chance of ‘Van den Bossche’ to be a name in a HP story is there?

Avatar Image says:

Loved it! BTW, for non-native English speakers – there is a joke in “Elvendork,” sort of. A “dork” is a silly or even stupid person, and definitely an uncool one. The “elven” is, I think, just a sort of wizarding-world prefix. So, James and Sirius were (again) being cheeky to the officers. Oh, and I think the shirts were the Phoenix, because the symbol of Gryffendore house is the lion, not the griffin.

Avatar Image says:

“Griffindor”, I mean – sorry!

OMFG!!!! TODAY IT’S MY 17TH BIRTHDAY AND THIS IS THE BESTEST PRESENT EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’VE ALWAYS LOVED THE MARAUDERS (+ ERA) THE MOST! THIS IS LIKE…WOW!

Avatar Image says:

Good point, linden!

Also, if you do some math, the story is set “about” 3 years before harry is born (sheez, james and lily got married young!), which means “about” 1977. James and Sirius were bron in 1960, so they would have been “about 17”...either still in Hogwarts or just graduated (and hence allowed to join the OotP)

Avatar Image says:

I really loved it… I was concerned, but I really loved it. The beginning of the story, I just wasn’t feeling it (ew, I sound like Randy Jackson), but as soon as Sirius and James turned up, I felt this broad grin spreading across my face. There’s so much fanfiction out there, but JK Rowling has a very unique writing style somehow that really identifiable as hers—the only fanfic writer who comes close is nuw255 on MNFF, who I still think is secretly Jo.

The only bit I didn’t like was the ‘vanishing ruby’ at the end. I kept rereading it, thinking that I had misread it.

Sirius, James, and the Muggle Police is an amazing name for a band. But you know what? So’s Elvendork.

Avatar Image says:

I think the most important thing we learned from this is that, at some point, The Order had T-shirts. And by golly, I want one!

Avatar Image says:

I didn’t find the “non prequel” funny, engaging, or even interesting….and that does not mean that I’m not Harry Potter fan! But I love that the writers all donated their time and stories to benefit the charities involved. It’s a really wonderful, creative way to raise money , and to continue to raise it once they go on sale to the public. I’d love to see JK Rowling move on from Harry and write something else!

Yeah ok but Witherforce or what was it? Just as dorky :p

Just discovered (out of sheer boredom) that someone already bought elvendork.com … crazy fandom :-)

It will be a nice beggining for a book, dont you think so? It’s told from the point of view of the policemen as PS beggining was from Uncle’s Vernon point of view… I love the T-shirts!! groovy LOL

Avatar Image says:

Elvendork! It’s unisex! Lol, brilliance. Loved it:D.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah…I want to start a band called Elvendork now. :) Also, didn’t Sirius and James remind you of Fred and George? The Elvendork website should become a Marauder fic site. :D C’mon…..somebody go make the shirts! >.<

Avatar Image says:

Thanks Crazy-Typist. Wait that’s unisex too! Squee!

Avatar Image says:

Does anyone know if anyone can enter that contest (to have your story featured in the collection), or if you have to be a UK resident?

Avatar Image says:

wow… I really liked it. I was sorta hoping for something more fluffy-funny, like maybe James and Serius going to get the engagement ring for Lilly. Serius would be taking the mickey out of james the whole time, until their shenanagins ended up with them in trouble with some foot cop. But this was really good. More action-funny.

I dont think it painted James and Serius in the same light as they were painted in Snapes Worst Memory. Sure, they’re wise guys, but it was harmless tom-foolery! They’re very much in the Fred and George roll here. Loved it. I’m about 99% sure that they were running from DE’s when police showed up. I’d guess that they didnt want to take to the air at first, ‘cause obviously it’s a muggle town, and maybe they thought staying on ground level would be extra protection (DE’s dont like muggle towns, I’d venture). They got cornered, and it wasnt until the DE’s entered the alley that they decided they had to use magic. Loved them lifting the car up and having the broom-riding DE’s fly into it. Too funny. Loved James final comment “Elvendork ! It’s unisex!”. LOL

Avatar Image says:

OMG!! that was brilliant and hillarious!! i luv james and sirius!!! I had a little trouble with Jo’s writing but i got it. That would be awsome if she wrote more about them!! I want a Order of the Phoenix shirt!!! And the Elvendork thing was pricless!!Go jo!!!

Avatar Image says:

Mmmmh..I’ve just read it for a second time. And the names Sirius says:”There’s Wilberforce…Bathsheba…Elvendork…” I think are the names of the 3 men following them on broomsticks.

Avatar Image says:

I am a little concerned after reading this. Does this mean that James and Sirius just left two cops at the end of a dark alley with three knocked out and soon-tp-be-grumpy Death Eaters? Well, I guess I wouldn’t put it past them. Elvendork was funny!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, actually I also though they were the names of the DE’s following them… isn’t it funny how we all start making our theories? LOL

Avatar Image says:

The car probably fell over and crushed the three DE’s so I don’t think the policemen have anything to worry about….

ww

Avatar Image says:

Beth A, as Becca points out, what Sirius and James did was not at all harmless to the cops if the broomstick riders were DEs. If they were Ministry people then I suppose they would finish the cleaning up by Obliviating the cops (who would still be confused once they recovered and noticed the damage to their car). And I disagree with weasleywarrior, having a police car fall over you wouldn’t do much damage to a wizard.

So, for more extreme theorizing: How about Anderson’s daughter’s boyfriend being Regulus disguised as a Muggle?

Avatar Image says:

That was awesome ! Had a had week this week, very stresful, new hp was definatly what i needed. Absolutely amazing to get an understanding of those characters before harry was around. Although i must say Jo’s handwriting is really hard to read !

Awesome :D

I now ship James/Sirius. Thanks Jo!

I mean no offense to j.k. Rowling, but that is the messy-est writing ive seen in my entire life. I couldnt read one word of it and i am very upset because I can’t understand the writing.:(

Archie – there are already some transcripts on the web;)

Avatar Image says:

I can’t read it! JKR has horrible handwriting. Could someone transcribe it, or would Waterstones frown upon that?

Avatar Image says:

redwall_hp, browse back in this comment section. I cant remember the pages, but at least two people have posted what the card said (its easy to find, just look for long posts). You might want to read it before it potentially gets removed (if it hasnt already). I’m not sure how Waterstones would feel about it being posted here.

Avatar Image says:

bwa ha ha! “Elvendork…it’s unisex!”

Its awesome! Its was hard for me to read handwriting, but I’ve found it on youtube. Jo, we’re waiting for something more!!!anything, but just write!!!

Bravo Jo!! once again you have done an amazing job.

Live, Love, Harry Potter!

Avatar Image says:

nooo !! i need moreee!!i loved it! they are so funny! but i must confess when i read about the shirts i thouth it was a snitch but the policeman was just stupid thinking about a bird, but OoP makes much more sense! silly me!

Avatar Image says:

I really liked it! It was short but I love the feeling of reading something new of Jo’s. I found Jo’s writing to be a lot easier to read than most of the other authors’ -anyone see Atwood’s? :)

Avatar Image says:

Wow! Very nice, altough way too short!

“And what’s nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy OR a girl” that was funny… did our harry almost end up being called Elvendork? I remember reading that the prequel was set one year before harry’s birth….

I think i’m goign to read it again right now!

Avatar Image says:

the prequel was wonderful! i enjoyed it so much. James and Sirius are just like oder versions of Fred and George. Even though it was really short I still enjoyed it. super funny, i hope she write more of these little notecards soon. XD

Avatar Image says:

LOL Elvendork is unisex! The phrase that launched a thousand avatars!

Avatar Image says:

@ Olavein

No, the story’s set three years before Harry’s birth…

But you’re right, luckily Lily was there to make James realize Elvendork wasn’t the way to go ;-)

(Imagine that – “Voldemort was beaten by Elvendork”!)

Avatar Image says:

Well, at first it was hard to read but after I zoomed it and read it twice I understood it. It’s awesome but after I read it I remembered how much I am going to miss Harry Potter and all of his and others adventures and the DE and Voldemort and Dumbledore, even if I didn’t like Voldy it was really interesting reading about him. And now I am going to miss it. I already accept that I am not going to read any other new HP book but after I read this I remembered how I felt when I read DH. But this was really awesome. Well done Jo!!!

Avatar Image says:

The whole writing sounded like an episode of the “Dukes of Hazzards.” Big fat cop chasing a couple of guys down an alley way. Boss hog anyone. Could that be unisex?

Avatar Image says:

Elvendork. Ah, I love you, Jo. “It’s unisex!” Dontcha just love Jo and her characters?

Avatar Image says:

OK, im sure im not the first one to say that but i think that they were driving away from deatheater…. and that the three people on brooms sticks were death eaters(Clever of james and sirius to block them with a car!) ELVENDORK!!! ok I REALLY ENJOYED it (wish it was from james or sirius’s point of view though) THANK U JK ROWLING

Avatar Image says:

_<

I think I speak for all Lupin fans when I say how disappointed I was when there was no mention whatsoever of Remus. (Or Peter or Lily, for that matter) I’ve been suffering from crazy Remus-withdrawl ever since I finished DH.

Still, it’s just like James and Sirius to get chased by the police and be all cocky about it.

Avatar Image says:

That was fun to read! I’m glad it’s going to make more rounds as a charity piece.

Avatar Image says:

Sorry, but I was a bit disappointed. Of all the things she could have given us in a prequel – a prank with some keystone cop please-men? Even found the writing a little banal.

Avatar Image says:

Hmmm…Elvendork Potter…wonder what anagrams you could make from that… Find your favorites at: http://www.wordsmith.org

Holy G! ORDER OF THE PHOENIX T-SHIRTS!!!!!! I WANT THEM!!!!!!!!!

I lold so hard on “Drumsticks?” XD

Avatar Image says:

Guys, it’s an 800-word prequel written on 2 sides of a postcard. She couldn’t include every character. It’s not a bloody novel.

Anyway, I absolutely loved it! I miss these characters so much. And Jo’s writing. Thanks for doing this, Jo! It’s really amazing.

Avatar Image says:

@Rose

I was thinking the exact same thing about the order of the phoenix T-Shirts! Damn I wish we could make them! Hey WB get off your butts and start pumping those out!!!

Avatar Image says:

@ Anthony: Exactly. Also, I demand to be known as Elvendork from now on!

Avatar Image says:

@ lv : I got “Nettled Provoker.” WTF?

Avatar Image says:

I keep re-reading the prequel and enjoying it every time! So I think I was wrong about the shirt. I though it may be a griffin for Gryfindor but someone pointed out that Gryffindors logo is a lion. So Order of the Pheonix it is then. But I thought they would be a more inconspicuos society. Wouldnt James and Sirius be too young for it yet, or at least slightly immature behaved to be taken in? Then again Dumbledore must have looked past that and saw their true worth, I suppose.

Oh and read the other authors cards too. Neil Gaimon’s is a cracker!

Avatar Image says:

Once again, its Rowling’s humour that makes it, I LOVE the police officer having the buttons ripped off his fat stomach across the wall and taking the wing mirror off with his arse. Brilliant!

Avatar Image says:

ohh,, i love Jo… altho it wa hard to read…..loved it X-)

Avatar Image says:

i think that sirius and james made the car go up, so the people on the broomsticks would crash into it… my guess though

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for posting. I called Waterstones in Amsterdam, and now they know about it as well. I should be a book rep.

My bio-F has Dylexia, my Sister has some form of it, and I have Autism, so I can relate with this cause! Now, hopefully the writers don’t write like me -because only a word processing program gets my words in the right order.

Thanks Jo for contributing and giving of yourself to this Charity. I just never expected it to be one that I have personal experience with.

Avatar Image says:

J.K. Rowling Is Brilliant!

Fin.

Avatar Image says:

I finally finished reading (found a transcript in a prior comment). Only 800 or so words? Couldn’t JKR write smaller or something? My last short story (still unpublished, sadly) was over eight thousand words. Oh well, it was interesting, just…long enough to get you interested, but short enough you wish it was a bit longer.

Avatar Image says:

I feel like a fool. I entered the contest of Waterstone’s – what’s your story. I don’t know what made me do it, but I just typed it, words came out, and well, in a few days time I hope to see it up, whether or not people like it.

Oh, like fumbling into an English class 20 minutes late with everyone looking at you. Jo, what have you done to me?

Unlike your well written story – mine is spoken soft at first, in front of the class till I get more confidence with my words. I hope I am not the only one on Leaky Lounge who entered. Great Idea and concept for a postcard book.

Thanks Jo for pushing me through the door, unprepared but speaking anyway.

Avatar Image says:

omg that was sooooooo good! I could have gone on reading 4ever. I hope that one day she’ll feel the urge to write prequel! kisses from Switzerland! L.

Avatar Image says:

All you Unisex elvendorks got was a rehashed fred and george story. There was no new insight into any of the characters. The story left you hanging. That’s because it wasn’t much of a story. We know Sirius and James were pranksters. We hear about that throughout the series. Why not give us more of a background on Lilllian and why if she thought james was such an a**hole did she marry him? All you got was a throw-away story for charity, that frankly, did sound a bit like fan fic, and a cheesy catch phrase. You don’t ask for much do you?

Avatar Image says:

That was awesome!!! Thanx, Jo!!!

@ Puddleglum

You are totally entitled to your opinion, although I have to say I disagree with your opinion about the story Rowling wrote for charity. You don’t, however, have the right to disrespect other opinions here which are just as valid. There is a way to disagree politely. Your comments clearly express that you feel anyone who liked it is easily pleased, and therefore simple, and that is inappropriate. By the way if you are going to act like you are smarter than everyone you might want to make sure you have your facts straight: Harry’s mother is Lily not Lillian.

Avatar Image says:

@secunda

Since the prequel is based on a children’s story, that does not seem to me to be a problem.

Avatar Image says:

can someone type it up? I can barely read it

Avatar Image says:

Uh tinagin, Lily is short for Lillian. Your facts aren’t straight either. No mention was ever made of anyone being simple. What is inappropriate is to read into something that is not there, and stir up bad feelings. To superimpose your insecurities on others in inappropriate. I still believe it was shoddy work, and a disappointment to fans who would have appreciated more insight into their beloved characters.

Avatar Image says:

Puddlegum: Only if she were ever refered to in the stories as Lillian. Not the case here. I think it is you who have stirred up bad feelings.

Avatar Image says:

...continued from above (technical difficulties)... this has nothing to do with insecurity on my part, I am calling you on being disrespectful of other people’s opinions by stating at the end of your last post that “you don’t ask for much do you?” These characters mean just as much to other people who actually who enjoyed the piece, and these blogs are meant for respectful exchange of ideas. Just because people though the story was fun, does not make them wrong to think so. It was only a short story for charity, not a full book that she wrote on the complete back story of the Maurauders and Lily. Personally I am glad she saved telling us about how LIly did end up changing her mind about James, because there is no way that could have been done justice on a post card (that is a very complex issue as far as I am concerned). That is just my opinion however, you are entitled to yours as I said above, I just think we can all disagree in a way that does not make broad assumptions about those with an opposing view point.

You can see it here in earlier comments. See page 2 and the entry made by crazy typer. Cheers!

Avatar Image says:

Well, sadly, I must admit that like some others of you, I was disappointed by this short-story prequel. I understand that JKR had limited time/space, and the mauraders, while I did not particularly dislike them, were not among my favorite characters of the books. Or, at least I didn’t find them to be particularly interesting. I would have much rather heard more about Dumbledor or Lily & James, or Snape, etc rather than Sirius and James, I guess. However, I must say that I did enjoy the little details of this little story, like the officer knocking off the mirror with his rear and the “golden bird” t-shirts.

Kudos to Ms. Rowling for writing this for charity and double kudos for making available to her fans to read, whatever their opinion of the story. (To be honest, I’d be much more interested to read more epilogue about Harry and his friends than prequel material!)

Avatar Image says:

Mrs. Rowling could sign could sign a sales slip with a cross and it would be hailed as a “great reading”.

Avatar Image says:

Well, that was fun.

And i liked the end note ;)

Avatar Image says:

Elvendork….it’s unisex! I liked it. The handwritting was terrible, I had a hard time decifering it, but I got through it. I really enjoyed the blatant disredard for wizarding law. When Sirius said in OotP that Harry wasnt like James, he was right. Harry is more like Lily I expect.

Avatar Image says:

Well, I thought that was a stupid story. It certainly wasn’t worth 48,000 dollars. I guess it’s not the story that counts, it was the name that earned the money for the charity. I’ve read better fan fiction. I don’t know how it can be called a prequel, it was hardly even a thougt and I don’t think there was much thought behind it. Sorry guys, I love Harry Potter but this one failed.

Avatar Image says:

...failed in your books maybe, Susan. And guess what? Your opinion counts for nothing. It was brilliant – humorous and witty. At this time, the Order was doing its best to twart Voldemort and his death eaters (the three on broomsticks are obviously V’s minions). And people, stop worrying about the wizarding law of secrecy. Do you honestly believe that the two policemen are going to tell it the way they saw it? Ok, we chased two men on a motorcycle who were speeding more than a bike possibly can. Then we drove them up a bricked up alley when suddenly they drew out their drum sticks and, before we knew it, our car was up-ended and three other men, flying on broomsticks, smashed into it. The bike suddenly revved up and flew the two men over the policecar and into the night. Somehow, I don’t think so! Who would have believed them?

Avatar Image says:

Sigh! She’s teasing us and it’s such a torture to endure…lol. Heard her say in interviews that she hasn’t stopped writing and I’m at the edge of my seat everyday hoping and waiting to hear that she’s going to drop another HP book. And now this prequel that she isn’t “working on.” How much sweet torture can one take? Mrs. Rowling, thank you from one of your many devoted fans.
