J.K. Rowling sure knows how to ignite her fan base, which exploded in nostalgia when the author Tweeted on Tuesday that Harry Potter’s oldest son was headed to his first day at Hogwarts.

The Twitterverse took to posting about heading back to the wizarding school themselves. After all, as Rowling once said, “whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” See how fans (and brands) reacted to the big day.

The fan who just can’t deal

The fan who has her quill and parchment at the ready
