Harry Potter For Adults

With the final installment of the "Harry Potter" over, it's a bittersweet time for anyone who's been charmed and awed over the past decade by the boy-wizard and his adventures at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Now, J.K. Rowling has announced her next book will be an adult novel, meaning future stories involving Harry are officially on the back burner.

So for many "Harry Potter" fans -- especially the generation that came of age with the books and movies -- today's announcement ushers in decidedly unmagical feelings, many of which are being documented on Twitter today under the hashtags #rowlingforadults, #JKRowlingAdultNovelSpells and others.

From taxes to exhaustion to sexual problems, tweeters are reimagining Rowling's stories with scenarios that are more relatable to all the sad, miserable adults out there. But that doesn't mean some of them aren't pretty darn funny.

Check out the slideshow below for some of our favorite Tweets. Oh, and don't forget to check out The Onion's brilliant take on the book series' coming of age.
