J.K. Rowling just made nice with her most villainous character — and “Harry Potter” fans are freaking out.
“What we can all do to help the NHS and look after ourselves and our loved ones,” Rowling tweeted on March 26.
Then, the author received a surprising response — from Lord Voldemort, nonetheless.
It may not have been the actual Lord Voldemort, but close enough: The tweet came from a popular fan account based on the infamous dark wizard.
“Stay safe jo,” Lord Voldemort wrote in response to his creator.
The tweet earned an equally surprising response from Rowling, who simply wrote: “You too, Voldy.”
It was an exchange that sent many “Harry Potter” fans into a frenzy. Many seemed shocked by the friendliness between Rowling and “Lord Voldemort,” considering that she designed him to be a definitively evil character, in addition to the fact, in a way, she’s responsible for “killing” him.
“I CANT EVEN BELIEVE THAT,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Girl don’t act incident, you killed him!” another joked.
Others were simply entertained by the interaction though, tweeting that the comedic moment was exactly what they needed during an overall tough time.
“Omg, this is too iconic,” one user commented.
“I don’t think I’ve ever loved you more than now,” another tweeted at Rowling.
The owner of the Lord Voldemort account, who often tweets in Portuguese, seemed equally excited by the situation.
“It’s not every day you get notifications on your phone from J.K. Rowling,” the account’s owner wrote.
