    Sorry, partridge in a pear tree. You've been bumped.

    Author J.K. Rowling just gave her fans a magical holiday present: 12 new "Harry Potter" items for the 12 days of Christmas.

    Starting Dec. 12, every day at 1 p.m. London time, "brand new writing by J.K. Rowling and even a new potion or two" will pop up on the Pottermore fan website, read a newsletter sent to members today.

    At least some of the new stories will focus on Draco Malfoy, Harry's platinum-haired, Slytherin-residing school rival.

    Even as Rowling has embarked on new fiction for general audiences, she continues to revisit the wizarding world she created.

    She released an in-depth treatise on the villainous Dolores Umbridge on Halloween, also via Pottermore. Her story featuring Rita Skeeter's "coverage" of the Quidditch World Cup, published back in July, also served as a much-needed fix for those jonesing to know more about how Harry, Ron and Hermione turned out.
