J.K. Rowling Regrets One Death In 'Harry Potter'

If you're a Harry Potter fan, you've inevitably been devastated by any number of deaths throughout the series: Sirius Black, Dumbledore, Snape, Dobby. J.K. Rowling wants you to know you're not alone.

While the author is responsible for all the death and destruction of your Hogwarts favorites there is one that she regrets.

Florean Fortescue the ice cream parlor owner that we met for a hot second in 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' met an untimely death at the hands of He Who Must Not Be Named. You probably don't remember poor Florean and the character didn't even make it into the film, but Rowling still feels bad for giving Florean the old heave ho.

This week, the author revealed her regrets on the Potter fan site Pottermore.com. "I seemed to have him kidnapped and killed for no good reason," Rowling wrote.

The admission of guilt came in part of Rowling's Christmas gift to fans. The author announced she is releasing 12 new Potter stories leading up to the holiday.

As much as the promise of twelve new stories elates devout Potter fans --- we're all still pretty angry she did not regret this.
