33 Things That Have Happened In The Harry Potter Universe Since The Series Ended.

Thanks to this Tumblr user for these awesome revelations.

So for the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter, were gathering all the info we can get about what has happened in the 20 years since the Battle of Hogwarts. J.K.Rowling let slip these hints about what has happened to our favorite characters, and the Wizarding World in general.

1/33. Dolores Umbridge was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for crimes against Muggleborns.

2/33. The Resurrection Stone is now buried in the Forbidden Forest after being pressed into the ground by a centaurs hoof. It has not been re-discovered.

3/33. After his death, Voldemort is forced to exist in the stunted infant-like form that Harry sees in the Kings Cross-like Limbo.

4/33. Harry lost the ability to speak Parseltongue when Voldemorts soul fragment was destroyed.

5/33. Viktor Krum fell in love with a woman back home in Bulgaria and presumably lived happily ever after.

6/33. The Death Eaters Dark Marks eventually faded to look like a scar. It will no longer burn or hurt.

7/33. The Quibbler is back to publishing articles about the lunatic fringe and is appreciated for its unintentional humour.

8/33. The remaining Death Eaters were killed or imprisoned in Azkaban for their crimes, with the exception of the Malfoys. Draco and Harry never became friends, but they did come to understand and appreciate each other better.

9/33. Hagrid was still working at Hogwarts by 2017, at 88 years old. He never married, although he had a relationship with a giantess.

10/33. Harry would take his family to visit Dudleys when they were in the neighbourhood (occasions dreaded by James, Albus and Lily).

11/33. Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster (McGonagall was really getting on a bit) as well as a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. That position is now as safe as the other teaching posts at Hogwarts, since Voldemorts death broke the jinx that kept a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor from remaining for more than a year.

12/33. Kingsley Shacklebolt became the Minister of Magic after the Second Wizarding War.

13/33. Harry will not train to be an animagus; his energies are going to be concentrated elsewhere and hes not going to have time to do that.

14/33. In the aftermath of the war, the Order was disbanded once and for all.

15/33. Hermione Granger was the only member of the trio who returned to Hogwarts to complete their seventh year. Harry, Ron and Neville went straight to get training as aurors.

16/33. After serving as an auror for a number of years, Neville Longbottom eventually moved on to serve as the Herbology professor at Hogwarts.

17/33. The head of the Auror Office as of 2007 is Harry Potter. Harry will never become Headmaster of Hogwarts since an academic career just isnt him.

18/33. Ron worked with George in Weasleys Wizard Wheezes prior to officially becoming an auror.

19/33. After the war was over, Hermiones first act was to find her parents in Australia and restore their memories. Harrys was to make sure that the Wizarding world knew that Snape was a hero and on Dumbledores side.

20/33. Azkaban no longer uses Dementors as guardians. The number of Dementors has been greatly diminished because despair and degradation have been lessened in the world.

21/33. Hermione tells Scrimgeour that she is not planning to embark on a career in Magical Law. Ironically, thats where she ends up. She advanced the rights of magical creatures and eradicated the old pro-pure-blood laws in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, of which she is the head.

22/33. Lavender Brown was attacked by Fenrir Greyback during the Battle of Hogwarts. Hermione saved her but she was already injured. What happened to her later on was never revealed.

23/33. Members of the DA still have their coins, as they are like badges of honor. Neville Longbottoms students were impressed when he showed them his Dumbledores Armys Coin.

24/33. Harry sometimes visits Hogwarts to give guest lectures on Defense Against the Dark Arts.

33. Firenze survived his wounds and was welcomed back into the Centaur herd. They realized that pro-human leanings were not shameful after all.

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, or so the saying goes.

The same can be said for your interactions with cops, most of whom are perfectly happy to let minor infractions slide––When was the last time you were actually ticketed for jaywalking?––provided you're not a total Karen should you interact them.

Your local police officer likely doesn't care about jaywalking or the fact that you went five miles over the speed limit unless you give him a reason to, as we learned when Redditor Takdel asked police officers: "What stupid law have you enforced just because someone was an a-hole?"
