J.K. Rowling Just Shut Down Some Harry Potter Theories

One of our favorite things about J.K. Rowling — and boy, are there a lot — is her eagerness to talk to fans about anything. She shares character backstories, goes into more detail about certain plots, and shares Draco Malfoy memes. She's even been known to indulge the odd Harry Potter theory cooked up by fans. Some fan fantasies, however, are getting no love from the beloved author. Last week, she took to Twitter to answer, and ultimately shut down, a few Potter suspicions that had been floating around. For starters, Ron Weasley isn't a time-traveling Dumbledore. He is, however, a treasure who should be respected for all eternity, kids.
And, no, Draco isn't a werewolf.
After shutting down those two fan queries, Rowling did at least clarify one Hogwarts mystery: Just what does Severus Snape smell like?
