JK Rowling is a Labour voter, and believes Scotland is better off as part of the UK rather than as an independent country.
Rowling – who lives in Scotland's capital, Edinburgh – sometimes goes on Twitter to talk about her views on Scottish politics.
She's become particularly vocal following Thursday's general election, which almost wiped out Labour in Scotland and resulted in a huge rise in the number of pro-independence SNP MPs.
For example, here she is saying Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy should be in Gryffindor, for facing "impossible odds" against the SNP.
But, when Rowling talks about Scottish politics, Harry Potter fans don't really seem that interested.
1. Like this one who wants to know why she can’t take her dog to Hogwarts.
2. Carolina Maximoff doesn't care about the rise in Scottish political nationalism, because she demands to know why Dobby was killed.
3. Rowling thinks some SNP voters are blood and soil nationalists, but is yet to comment on whether any of them are Ravenclaw.
4. Nationalism is "inseparable from the desire for power". Which Harry Potter character would you be?
5. Here Rowling is trying to explain why the SNP are dangerous, but we all know the true threat comes from Draco Malfoy's patronus.
6. Rowling's support for Labour is largely thanks to her experience of living on benefits. But was Thomas Riddle a nice muggle?
7. This fan is concerned that wizards may be disenfranchised in the general election.
8. More importantly, how do you say "nationalism" in parseltongue?
9. This fan responded to Rowling's tweet about former first minister of Scotland Alex Salmond with a nice drawing.
10. This fan rises above Scottish political nationalism to spread the love.
11. Komal Shahid just wants JK Rowling to know she exists.
12. After Ed Miliband stepped down as Labour leader on Friday, Rowling started to think about his successor. Is Cornelius Fudge the right man for the job?
13. This fan simply doesn't care about why there's been a surge in SNP support.
14. In fact, Brazilian Harry Potter don't seem to be interested in Scottish voting patterns at all.
15. Neither do Spanish Harry Potter fans.
16. Or Indian Harry Potter fans.
17. Particularly this one Indian Harry Potter fan.
18. In fact, really, really this one Indian Harry Potter fan.
19. But this fan does care about Scottish politics, and she is proudly both Hufflepuff and pro-Scottish independence.
