of Harry Potter J.K. Rowling received a message on Twitter from a fan, Katie (
), asking her to write the words “Expecto Patronum” in handwriting so she could get it inked on the wrist where she used to cut herself.
Katie explained in the tweet that she has gone through difficult times in her life including suicide attempts and self-harming. Mentioning that Rowling's work has helped her to get through every single setback and that she hopes that the spell from Harry Potter in ink will help her staying on the right track.
Unexpectedly Rowling responded only a few minutes after receiving the tweet, saying:
"I love that you're working to heal and protect yourself. You deserve this. I hope it helps."
Shout out to J.K. Rowling for being SO AWESOME! We sure hope Katie finds strength in her future tattoo and can't wait to see the result!
