The next day, he resurfaced with an update, but warned his now thousands of fans that the resolution was a little less dramatic. We ate it up nonetheless.
In a world of trolls, it’s good to see that Potter decided to use his power for good. Hopefully the rest of the semester is smooth sailing from here on out.
