EDIT: Shortly after I was going to hang up my cape for tonight, the first clue was posted! Congratulations to everyone that got in on the first day. I will continue to try each day, but do not know how many days I will be able be up at 4 am.
Day 1 Clue: How many breeds of owls are featured on the Eyelops Owl Emporium sign? Multiply that number by 49.
EDIT: I actually got in! Thanks to some of my twitter followers I was able to register on my smartphone. It was not exactly working for me on my laptop. I am waiting to confirm my email address, but may need to just wait to do that later. Who knows when that email will come.
It was a great day when JK Rowling released information about Pottermore, an interactive site that would allow fans to continue their magical adventures at Hogwarts.
Somewhere, a rumor broke that the first clue to get exclusive early access to Pottermore would be available on the website at 8 am, UK time. I patiently waited with hundreds of other Potterfans for 3 AM eastern time to roll around.
Fans took to tumblr and twitter alike to try and figure out why a clue, a magic quill, did not appear for everyone.
So, where is this Magic Quill all Potterfans so desperately want? According to the Pottermore Insider, there really isn’t a specific time for the clue. It will appear at random and fans just have to keep a watchful eye on the site. This does make it fair, but, internet rumors aside, all fans are just ready to continue enjoying this series. That is silver lining on this cloud. The fact that many are willing to continue having magical adventures at Hogwarts warms my heart. Even after seven books and eight movies. Even after a theme park. Even after all these years. Harry Potter is still a top notch franchise with dedicated fans.
Now, I will be refreshing the page until the quill appears.
