Harry Potter's last word: Write your own Book 7 ending

In an interview in 2005, J.K. Rowling confirmed that, as of that time, the last word in the final Harry Potter book was "scar". How do you imagine the final page of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will look? Write your own ending for the book and share it with us! 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...

Harry gazed lovingly around the crowded cemetary, hand and hand with Ginny, Ron and Hermione, now married, standing beside them. This cemetary was dedicated to all the people that had d, so bravely and courageously, in that final battle against the Dark Lord. The battle where such love and great sacrifice had been demonstrated, Voldemort had been driven away, disappearing forever.

But it had not come at a small price. Neville, Charlie, Percy, Lupin, Hagrid, McGonagall, Kingsley, Snape, and many others, had d for the happiness and well-being of their fellow brethren.

It seemed like it had happenned yesterday, the scene was so vivid in Harry's mind, but in reality, it had been three long, painful months since Voldemort was finally defeated. Yet so much had changed, in that short amount of time. Ron and Hermione were now married. Ginny and Harry were engaged, and were going to be married next month. Arthur had been promoted to the head of the Magical Law enforcment squad, an honor he wore with pride, and with a portion of his earnings he had built a beautiful monument dedicated to the brave witches and wizards who had valiantly given their lives so the magical community could rest once again.

Harry was very proud of the part he had played in the Dark Lord's defeat, he, Harry Potter, the Chosen One, the Boy Who Lived, the man with a lightning shaped scar.

Harry, looking back, could not believe how much had changed since that final battle with Voldemort...he had been 17 at that time, and now the 15th anniversary of that event was coming up, within a week, in fact. He had become an auror for the Ministry, and after Voldemort's eternal defeat, he had helped round up the remaining Eaters. He had married Ginny exactly 2 months after she turned 17; Ron and Hermione had had their wedding 5 weeks after the Last War. Ron and Hermione Weasley now had three little Weasleys, Charles, 8, Amy, 6, and David, 4. As for the Potters, Harry and Ginny had wanted a big family; they had James, 9, Katibelle, 8, Maggie, 6, Lily, 4, Brian, 2, and Christopher, 3 months. Both families lived happily, no longer in fear of Voldemort. After all, he was gone now, forever...forever...

Hermione and Ron gazed out at Harry's grave, hand in hand, both sobbing miserably at the sight. Voldemort was defeated, but with his life was taken many others, including their best friend who they would always remember, the boy with the scar.

..."and that was the final battle between Voldemort and I, but you james, charlie, and lily," Harry said looking at each of his three beloved children as he said there names "need to get to bed, its way past your bed time and your mother is going to me if she finds out i told you the story again."

Harry leaned in and kissed each of his children on the forehead and said goodnight. As Harry reached to switch the lights off and head to bed himself to Ginny, when his youngest daughter Lily said "daddy?" "yes?" harry replied in a soft tone, gazing into her beautifuly bright green eyes that go so well with her firey red hair, that resembled her monther so greatly. Lily giggled and said "i love you and you scar" Harry smiled kissed her again, and left the room without another word, but thinking, after all the pain his scar had givin him and all the lives lost because of it, he too had become found of his simple lightening-bolt shaped scar.

Harry bade Hermione farewell, and turned to see the faint outline of a familliar figure in the distance. It was Frank the Magical Hippo, and he was leaving Hogwarts forever. Harry took off his large top-hat in respect for him, and three rabbits emerged from the depths of it; hopping out after their hippo friend. One of them, however, hopped in a jolly manor back to Harry and bit his ankle.
"Oh no!" Harry said. "That's bound to leave a scar."

Harry looked into the mirror, deep in thought. Nothing had ever felt better than finally defeating Voldemort...he had done it! Incredibly, the boy who lived had lived through so many other challenges against voldemort the past 7 years. Alot of people had d, fighting at his side...but as Dumbledore said, it was important for him, Harry, to live. Still the of Neville haunted harry the most, but at least Ron was out of the hospital wing and Hermione, Ginny, and Luna had all recovered from St. Mungos. Of course, Harry was respected the most he had been in his entire life. Looking up in the mirror, Harry gazed upon his lighting-bolt scar, the symbol that still stood for his bravery, and of course, for the boy who lived.

Harry trembled as the judge handed him his trophy, THE trophy, his OSCAR.

Ginny looked at him and sang, "Listen baby, ain't no mountain high, ain't no vally low, ain't no river wide enough baby!"

Harry beamed and sang back to her accross the grave yard, "If you need me to Vol, no matter where you are, no matter how hard! Don't worry baby, If you call my name, I'll be there in a hurry, you don't have to worry--"

Then something happened that shocked Harry into silence.
All of the people Voldemort had ever ed, fell with a soft thud on the ground and began to sing, "Cause baby there ain't no muntain high enough, ain't no valley low enough, ain't no river wide enough... to keep us away from you Harry!"

Harry wiped his eyes and touched his scar. It gave him a feeling of confort to hear Dumbldore's words fo the last time... "Ahhhh music, a magic far beyond all I have ever taught you Harry." James came up to Harry and said, "Thanks for giving me this scar."

as harry woke suddenly he realised it was all a dream. he yawned and fell out of the bed. "ouch!" he exclaimed, "now dats going to leave a scar!"

and voldemort laughed while he stared at harry trying to reach out to grab rons hand who had just fell through the veil, harrys hand went through the thin curtain that divided harry from ron... from sirius...from ginny.

the hand that went through the veil hurt horribly, he took it out and saw that it was black and burned like dumbledores and then he realized that sirius wasnt in the veil, dumbledore had taken him out, and he turned to face voldemort for the last time.

voldemort laughed and yelled "weve done this before harry, you cant beat me." a gigantic chill went through harry and he looked behind his back. two dementors stood behind him and he noticed that they didnt seem to have any interest of attacking him. a thrilling thought occurred harry as he saw that they had just come out of the veil "ron, ginny?" the two dementors nodded at him before charging at voldemort. he was to surprised to realize what was going on. harry yelled, "petrificus totalus!" his spell hit voldemort as he fell to the ground. the big dementor (which harry assumed was ron) pushed ginny out of the way and leaned over voldemort to kiss him. when the dementor was done, he turned to harry, took his wand and drew a line across his neck, then handed the wand back to harry and harry understood, in order to get rid of lord voldemort forever he would have to ron. he smiled and yelled with his wand facing towards ron, "avada kedavra!" ron evaporated and harry turned to exit hogwarts, when somebody called him "harry, come here!" he turned around to see his father and mother waving at him. he ran towards them and felt a small twinge in the scar. he touched his forehead and felt no scar. as he noticed that he ran even harder.

Harry waited just inside the main gate of Hogwarts. He was scared. The moment of truth was almost upon him. He had been going over and over it in his mind. "Don't use your wand," Lupin told him. "It's just what Voldemort wants you to do," said Mad Eye. "You were just lucky with the priori incantatem last time, you can't win against him that way," warned Arthur.

But there was another voice in his head. A calmer voice. A familiar voice. A voice that warmed him all over and almost made him forget where he was and what was about to happen. "Match the spells," Dumbledore said inside his head. "Match the spells."

As Harry waited, he remembered the last time. Voldemort had done the Avada Kedavra. He had done Expelliarmus. "Match the spells," Dumbledore repeated.

The air suddenly changed, and Harry found it hard to breathe. This was it. Harry calmly stepped from behind the wall and stood face to face with Voldemort. As if they were both in the same slow motion ballet, Harry and Voldemort raised their wands, and shouted in unison, "Avada Kedavra!"

Harry expected the wands to connect, but he was not prepared for what happened next. Red light burst forth from Voldemort's wand, and Green light from Harry's wand, met between them, and the contact point of the beams exploded with an earsplitting crash, a blinding light and such force that Harry was thrown backward several feet and landed on the ground on his back.

As his senses cleared, Harry immediately realized everything was completely different. He didn't feel like himself. He tried to accio his wand, which had ended up laying several feet away from him, and it didn't come. He got up and looked around, and immediately saw, where Hogwarts should have been, was an old, abandoned ruin with a "Condemned" sign hanging on the front door. Harry felt an emptiness he had never felt before. He was no longer a wizard.

He looked back over to where he had seen Voldemort last, and instead saw an old man, waving a wand around uselessly, like a child. Voldemort wasn't a wizard any more, either. Harry walked up to old Tom Riddle, reared back and punched him hard in the face. Riddle fell back in a heap, unconscious.

Hermione and Ron ran up to Harry. "Harry! What did you do!?" pleaded Ron. "No one can do magic any more, it's all gone!" Harry couldn't answer, he just looked away. "He had to do it," said Hermione. "As long as there was magic, there would always be another Voldemort..."

...they looked up to the brilliant blue sky, a floating white cloud was taking a curious shape. Slowly, but surely. They could finally make out the shape- a face, a face with flowing white beard, and half moon glasses. The face seemed to smile serenely at Harry, Ron and Hermione. Ron sighed, Hermione sobbed, Harry ran his hand weakly on his forehead, the place where happened to be a scar.
