The depth of love that Harry Potter fans feel for the series and its author, J.K. Rowling, knows no bounds 鈥 just check out the photos of this couple鈥檚 Potter themed wedding for proof! And J.K. Rowling (who is no stranger to sharing her feelings on social media), in turn, loves each and every single one of them right back 鈥 a fact that was made all-too clear when she answered one of her 7.27 million Twitter followers鈥 tweets personally, offering along with it a rather unexpected gift.

The lucky tweeter was @AlwaysJLover (AKA Kate), a fan that鈥檚 been struggling to overcome some personal demons. She sent a message to her hero, J.K. Rowling, requesting the author鈥檚 handwritten copy of 鈥渆xpecto patronum鈥 for a tattoo, along with a lengthier message explaining her reasoning.

Her full message reads as follows:

For those of you unfamiliar with the Potter series (blasphemy!), 鈥渆xpecto patronum鈥 is a very fitting tat for someone who might be in need of some extra strength 鈥 it鈥檚 a spell used by young wizards to ward off evil with a white shield of positive energy.

Apparently, Ms. Rowling agreed: She weaved a little magic of her own for Kate by responding with the requested handwritten phrase, along with a very special message of her own.

WOW. We鈥檙e not even going to pretend we didn鈥檛 cry at that exchange. We have a feeling Kate, who reportedly wasn鈥檛 expecting J.K. to actually respond 鈥 felt the same.

We鈥檙e so happy to hear that she is on the road to recovery, and we鈥檙e positively blown away that J.K. Rowling was so willing to help her on her journey.

Best of luck, Kate 鈥 we鈥檙e rooting for you all the way!

Are you crying happy tears for Kate with us? Tweet us J.K. style @BritandCo!
