eing famous is probably pretty awesome...except when it's not.
Like, it's probably super great to have disposable income, worldwide recognition, and a verified Twitter account, but being a household name definitely has its drawbacks at times. Imagine not being able to go out to buy groceries without being asked for an autograph, or having the paparazzi wait outside your door for you to make a move. Not so glamorous.
J.K. Rowling is one of the most famous people on the planet. She's also one of the best humans ever, but as it turns out, even she has her limits...
J.K. Rowling is the Queen of Twitter.
It’s true. We all voted and she won.
But seriously, if you haven’t seen J.K. Rowling’s many fantastic tweets, you are definitely missing out. One of the best things about her Twitter is that she often uses it to answer questions from her fans.
For instance, when people asked why (spoilers!) the Horcrux inside Harry isn't destroyed when the Basilisk bites him in Chamber of Secrets, she gave a very reasonable answer.
William Shakespeare never had to deal with his fans e-screaming at him in all caps.
Hopefully this question can now be laid to rest.
Here's another question from a Fluffy fan:
It’s nice to know that Rowling has given so much thought to the characters in the books — even the ones who only appear a couple times throughout the series.
Not all the questions Rowling answers are Harry Potter-related, however. Here's what she said when one fan asked about her favorite kind of tea:
BRB, immediately going to buy every box of Lancashire tea we can find.
Hey, if it’s good enough Rowling, it’s good enough for the rest of us.
But when Rowling responded to journalist Mark Harris' Twitter poll, we all learned a very important lesson.
He didn’t even pose the question to Rowling herself. Anyone could comment on it. He wanted people to share the worst way to start a conversation while trapped in an elevator with someone.
Rowling didn’t answer with one of the available answers. So what is it? What’s the one question that J.K. Rowling can’t stand to answer? Is it a question about yet another perceived plot hole? Is it a question about the post-book lives of the characters? Maybe it’s simply asking for some of her money?
Nope! It’s none of those. Instead, the no. 1 most annoying question to J.K. Rowling is about something you might not expect…
