The only requirements: Please write one to three paragraphs max, and the last word of your entry must be "scar".

UPDATE: The Last Word is No Longer Scar!

Friday night (7/6/07) on the Jonathan Ross show on the BBC, J.K. was asked if "scar" still the last word in the book, as had been reported, and she said, "Scar? It was for ages, and now it's not. Scar is quite near the end, but it's not the last word." So, please continue with our three paragraph fantasy endings, but you no longer have to make "scar" the last word if you don't want...

Looking back, Harry still couldn't believe every thing that happened in the last year. So much had changed. Bill was married to Fluer. He'd finally found the real truth about why his mother had married his father, and amazingly, he took Snape's side in the whole matter and actually felt sorry for him.

There were so many friends he'd never see again. They all d so bravely, and their families were so proud, but that doesn't make missing them any easier. But, like Dumbledore said, sometimes we must chose between what is easy, and what is right.

And it was right that Voldemort was finally gone. Or was he? All of a sudden, Harry felt a twinge in his scar...

As everyone in the wizarding community looked on at Harry's , Hermione couldn't help but to look at Harry's forehead. She was sure the battle was over, because Harry no longer had the scar.

The wind had hardly stirred on the day of the . It seemed that it too was in mourning. The atmosphere of the crowd was very subdued, as mourners gathered to say goodbye to those valient heroes who had vanquished the Dark Lord. Among the crowd sat Hermione, hysterical with tears. Her moans were the only sounds to be heard from miles around.

As more and more people gathered in front of the five coffins that lay on a hill over looking the crowd, the sermon begins. It is a sad tale about those five heroes how each had done his part to Lord Voldemort, and how each had perished.

At the end of the service, those who knew these men well were permitted to watch as they be lowered into their final resting place. And finally, as the last coffin was lowered, Hermione let out one last sob. She knew that Harry Potter was gone, and yet he wasn't. His story would be past down from generation to generation untill the world was cast into oblivion. And then she heard that final plunk that indicated that Harry had reached the bottom, and there he would remain forever, and even now and forever after, embed into his forehead was a lightning-shaped scar.

It was over. Voldemort was done and finished. Harry was overwhelmed by the velocity at which this reality hit him. Harry could not resist the smile that curled on his face. The prophecy was true, he had ed voldemort. Harry recounted the events over the past months, which had given him a whole new perspective of all too many things. The first thought that came to him was the shock that snape, of all people, who he had loathed throughout his six years at hogwarts, would help him fulfill the prophecy and destroy voldemort. He must've had to do a great deal of acting, both on him, and especially voldemort Harry thought.

But this trance was suddenly diminished as Harry looked down upon the floor, where Neville sat, plain faced, expressionless, with any remnants of life gone from his body. It was he who had saved Harry, he who allowed Harry the crucial time to send the avada kedrava curse directly at voldemort, he who had sacrificed himself so that Harry could finally destroy the dark lord. Guilt suddenly washed over harry, for it was all too simple that Neville could be standing in his shoes at this very moment, and him laying on the ground , if only voldemort decided to name Neville as his equal, not him.

His thoughts were distracted by the distant voices of Hermione and Ron. They were running towards him with mixed looks of shock and relief. Hugging Harry they began to question him thoroughly. "Are you alright? Are you okay Harry?" Hermione yelled. "Blimely Harry you've done it, Voldemorts ." Ron added. As if it went by in flashes, suddenly Hermione and Ron were on the ground, both pale and motionless, . Harry stood over them, laughing coldly with content. All it took was a twinge in his scar.

... laying there on the ground Harry felt a mixture of content and grief. he had ed Voldemort, but his best friend... He still couldn't believe it. Ron, he was... he was . It suddenly hit him in the face. He was gone. He felt a shock going trough his body. Harry openend his eyes, the light was bright. Am I.. am I too, he wondered. When his eyes adjusted to the light, he discovered that he was in a hospital. Was it St Mungo's?

Harry stood up from the bed, his muscles felt weak. He could barely stand. He could hear nurses in the hallway running towards his room. From the words that he heard he could make up that they were muggles.

Harry had managed to walk up to the mirror. Has looked in the mirror another shock went trough him. He realized that he had dreamt the whole thing. He felt his head to be sure. There was no lightning shaped scar.

No one could believe their eyes, but it was a living proof of power of selfless love and strength of true friendship. It was the living reminiscence of a friend who has sacrificed his own life to save his two best friends from the most feared dark wizard of all age and in his attempt not only saved the life of those two but also ensured the freedom of wizardkind from most feared dark arts when his selfless act has resulted in the of the �dark lord� voldemort, whose name was not feared anymore and mind you it was not just the act of spur, it had followed from the mammoth task of destroying �Magick most evile�, the horcruxes, beforehand which has ensured that dark lord was indeed and can not come back and here was he who has come back as Harry Weasly, the son of Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger aka Weasley, having at his forehead the same lightening shaped �scar�.

.....and it was all over.He knew it and it would never happen again. He had got everyone back, starting from his parents to phoenix members (including dumbledore), to some eaters and everyone. After all, he had really done well in the ly hallows.

From somewhere far behind, lily potter called 'Harry, come here!'. he ran towards her and gave her a great hug. She passed a loving hand over the head of her son, who got everything back from Voldemort. All that remained was a lightning shaped scar...

Harry stod there staring at the pale body of a roundcheeked boy who was very forgetfull and not so good in magic. Still he felt great respect cause the motionless boy had something that was much more important... loyalty and bravery. The boy had saved Harry from Voldemort. Harry bent down, reached for the boy's wand and placed it on the his chest. He got up and looked around in the room. There was another body in the room, a motionless body too. Harry's face broke into a little smile... it was over. Neville Longbottom had sacrificed himself to save Harry. Voldemort was . Harry lifted his hand to his forehead, there was no scar...

Neville gazed down upon the lifeless form of Harry and saw that the scar that once had stood so vividly on his forehead, had dissapeared. He turned away and was unaware that on his forehead, was his own scar.
