That Hogwarts letter you’ve been waiting on? You can stop hanging by the mailbox. You got it years ago. J.K. Rowling said so.

The author of the beloved “Harry Potter” series has cast a spell on social media for the past few months, tweeting about everything from getting snubbed by Draco Malfoy on his birthday to her disbelief at ‘Harry Potter’ star Matthew Lewis’ recent state of undress.

Sunday, Rowling tweeted in response to a fan question on Twitter that asked if Rowling was a squib (that’s a non-magical person born to wizard parents, for you muggles out there), since she hadn’t received her Hogwarts letter.

Rowling’s response is enough to make you want to accio a box of tissues:

The author continued in another tweet, “Of course it happened inside your head, but why on earth should that mean it wasn’t real?”
