Things have been exciting for Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling has clearly been thinking Wizarding World. Fans were treated to a glimpse of Harry Potter and his life as it is today, viewed through the lens of Rita Skeeter, and now a well known but never appearing side character gets fleshed out – Celestina Warbeck, the favorite singer of Molly Weasley.
Rowling wrote about Celestina’s history- her parentage, career, Hogwarts house (Gryffindor), and her three marriages, all to celebrate her birthday – now given as August 18th. The content originally appeared on Pottermore on the ‘Flu Powder’ scene, but can also be found elsewhere. One of her most famous songs, “You Stole my Cauldron, but you Can’t Have my Heart” has even been recorded, with her backup band, the Banshees.
While Molly has never been able to see her in concert, due to black market ticket prices, guests to Diagon Alley at the Wizarding World in Orlando can see her perform.
Robyn was a fan of fantasy before she was aware there were even other entertainment options. She’s been a writer just as long as she’s been a fantasy fan. In D&D she plays Wizard, she was sorted into Slytherin, she supports House Lannister, flirts with Garrus Vakarian, supports the Imperial Empire, and she has a favorite Doctor. She also has more degrees in Literature than most people tend to consider a good life choice, has somehow managed to get some of her poetry published, and gets to fail college students who decide they don’t have to turn in their assignments. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband, four cats, and huge personal library.
