A New 'Harry Potter' Chapter Was Written Using Only Predictive Text, And It's Riddikulus

Diply 15 Dec 2017

For many of us around the world, Harry Potter was a huge part of our childhoods. If you're a Potterhead, you probably lined up to buy the books and then lined up to watch the movies at the midnight showings!

Harry Potter is the gift that never stops giving, and now, we have a new chapter to enjoy! Well, there is a catch.

At first, it was pretty mortifying to get to the last page of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallowsand realize that that was it.

Harry, Hermione, and Ron's story had ended forever.

Even though J.K. Rowling broke our hearts by always insisting that she'd never write any more books about those characters, we at least had the movies to look forward to.

But even that came to an end.

Well, sort of. Anyone who is even remotely a fan of HPknows that J.K. likes to keep the magic alive by tweeting out facts about the characters we never knew...SOME OF WHICH SHOULD BE KEPT TO YOURSELF, J.K.

After the fans had a tepid reaction to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, it seemed like Potterheads were going to stuck rereading the original seven books until every single page fell apart. UNTIL NOW, THAT IS.

A group of writers, artists, and tech nerds at Botnik Studios spent time training a predictive keyboard with the text of the original Harry Potterbooks. And what was the result?

The program is able to write a chapter with the characters we all know and love, but it's...well, a bit weirder. Still, perhaps its worthy of the title "Best Work Of Literature Created By A Bot."

First of all, the title already deserves to win all the awards in the world. Who wouldn't want to read Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash?

Wouldn't you be eagerly waiting to read the chapter called "The Handsome One"?

Who really is the handsome one? They're probably referring to Oliver Wood, to be honest. He really was the hottest one on campus.

In the book, it looks like Harry is apparently a ghost who has some issues with birds. He finds himself falling "down the spiral staircase for the rest of the summer."

Meanwhile, Hermione is suffering. Over the summer, Ron decides it's a good time to eat her family.

But don't worry! Voldemort decides to rub it in by wearing a shirt mocking Hermione that says, "Hermione Has Forgotten How To Dance." Oh, and Harry decides to dip her in hot sauce.

Come on, you have to admit that it's completely fascinating and 100% true to these characters.

Voldemort would be the one character who'd wear a customized t-shirt he probably bought on Etsy.

And as with anything that has to do with Harry Potter, this blew up on the internet, and it has fans dying to buy the whole book.

J.K. who? It's time for Botnik to take the spotlight!

It's gotten to the point where Harry Potter fans are actually stanning this new book by creating beautiful fan art.

IT'S GETTING WAY TOO OUT OF HAND, AND I FULLY ENDORSE THIS.

Honestly, Ron has never looked better than he has now as a fat orange bird.

I'M DEAD AT HARRY'S FACE. He just hates birds, okay?! And now his best friend is a bird. That sucks!

We've been truly blessed with fan art that depicts Voldemort mocking Hermione and wearing a customized t-shirt.

I think Botnik needs to release this book with the fan art. How cool would that be?!
