[I wrote a bit about my thoughts and hopes about The Casual Vacancy.]
This brings to mind “The Riddle House”, chapter one of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in which there are mysterious deaths in the village of Little Hangleton. The Muggle villagers do not know what actually happened (that Lord Voldemort murdered his Muggle father and paternal grandparents) and there are many rumors. What would we see if we went from the scale of an entire world and focused in on this little town? Though I do not and cannot know the contents of Vacancy based upon the short and (probably intentionally) vague information provided, that it reminds me of a very fascinating chapter from one of her previous books makes me think and hope that the book contains a similar feeling of mystery and that she has perhaps explored themes she did not have a chance to fully delve into during her previous works.
As of right now, all of my headcanon is based upon Harry Potter, so the two links above lead to the same content.
I try to write headcanon that does not contradict the canon. This is not always true of my fan fiction.
I'm very excited about Pottermore.
