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...

As the mist parted, Lord Voldemort's thin body lie motionless on the yellowing sod. Broken glass, scattered on the ground over Alastor Moody's faithful blood and body. All was silent as Harry, Ron, Ginny and Hermione inspected their work. They finally realized that they had defeated Voldemort, but all together. Hermione burst into tears as Ron approached, and he kissed her, just like that. Hermione looked up at him, smiled and simply said, " Ronald, what took so long". The battle was over. Harry embraced Ginny and commented, " Ginny, erm....well.. since the battle is over... well", Harry rummaged through his pocket, " Harry", retorted Ginny as harry finished his sentence " you marry me"? He handed her the ring. " I don't know what to say" replied Ginny. " Um... how about yes"? " Oh Harry you're so predictable... and that means yes" she said with a kiss.

Two months later Harry and Ginny honeymooned in Hawaii! At the pool, Harry was eyeing the hula dancer and was soon on the receiving end of one of Ginny's incredible bat-bogey charms and a slap in the face. He was never quite the same after that. Four days later, Harry thought to himself, "Wow, two months ago my friends, future bride and myself destroyed Lord Voldemort along with the last Horcrux. Now that Hermione and Ron are engaged, as well as me and Ginny married, the world seemed like a more peaceful place. Looking back, the root of the 17 year battle was Sibyl Trelawney. Harry thought, "she must next" but he stopped himself. "The battle was once and for all over" Harry thought. At least, that was before he knew that Voldemort had a son with 76 Horcruxes. Those battles took Harry the rest of his life and he finally d from a stroke. And the world lived horribly ever after! Yay! Woohoo!

...Harry looked up, feeling the eternal pain of a burning scar. It was over, he had and always remember the dark, fiery, burning eyes of Voldemort . Hermione and Ron were his sacrifice of Ron and Hermione to break the loving spell and destroy Voldemort once and for all.
"Now, AVADA KEDAVRA", Harry screamed. Harry's wand illuminated and instantly ed Harry

"Go!" Harry yelled to all the Hogwarts students.
They rushed out at the Eaters, spells flying left and right. Harry head up the attack, going after Voldemort.
"Stupefy!" He screamed, making Voldemort unable to move for only a minute, but he took advantage of that minute. He rushed up and put his want to Voldemort's throat.
"Do it." Voldemort hissed. " me."
"Where are the other Horcruxes?" Harry demanded, teeth gritted.
Voldemort laughed without a reply.
"Where are they?" Harry yelled in his face, just before he discovered there was only one thing he could do to find out where the last horcrux was.
With spells flying around his head from Eater to student, from Student to Eater. He yelled the unforgivable curse of .
As Voldemort lie in the dirt, still and lifeless, the fighting ceased.
The night filled with voices. "Is he ?" "He can't be." "I knew it would happen!" "Harry Potter ed the Dark Lord!"
Then one sudden voice boomed beside him. "Get off my Lord!"
The person pushed Harry and he froze as he saw Dumbledore kneel by Voldemort's side.
"What have you done?" Dumbledore wept. "My Lord!"
"Professor, what...he can't be your lord! You're !"
"I'm not , you fool. Snape tried, but he couldn't me. I'm the second strongest wizard alive!"
And the reality hit him. Dumbledore was Voldemort's double spy, not Snape. He was the one that let everything happen here. It was Dumbledore.
Harry turned his wand to Dumbledore, and they stood.
"Harry," Dumbledore started. "You were like a son to me. I didn't want to get attacked. You were supposed to let me stop drinking in the cave! I could have gone back to my Lord! You ruined me, and now he's !"
"Avada Kedavara!" Harry screamed at Dumbledore, and then Dumbledore's body was as as Voldemort's.
But what about the horcrux? Harry wondered, his forehead stinging madly. What is the last Horcrux?
And then he saw a mist flow in front of his eyes from his head. A ghastly smell. A horrible sense.
And the mist flowed back through Voldemort and he stood, horrified at his right-hand-man's body and his only life left.
"Avada," Harry panted. "Kedavara."
And Voldemort's body fell for a last, , broken time, leaving Harry to look around at the other bos on the scene.
Eaters and Hogwarts students alike were . They had fought for their side of the battle, and Hogwarts won.
Harry walked toward the castle, hearing the Eaters flee, the students too stunned by everything to move. Soon Ron and Hermione were by his side. Harry accepted Ron's hug and Hermione's, after falling to the floor on his knees.
"Where's Snape?" Harry sobbed, just realizing how exhausted he was.
"I'm here, Potter." Severus Snape's cool voice echoed from across the hall. Harry looked up as Snape walked toward him.
Harry struggled to stand, but once he did, he ran to Snape, falling into his fatherly arms. Snape held onto him like life itself.
Neither of them ever found out what the other had been through, but they knew they were not enemies. To Snape, Harry was a son. And to Harry, Snape was the father he'd looked so hard for. James was not his father anymore, Sirius was not, Mr. Weasley was not, Dumbledore certainly was not.
Soon Hermione hugged Ron, feeling a need to embrace someone. He took her openly. Soon she would be his family, as well, and soon Harry would be Snape's.
Hermione became Ron's wife and Harry became Snape's son.

as Dumbledore lowered his wand for a second time he touch Harry on the shoulder.
"R.A.B. was a lie" Dumbledore whispered a tear rushing down his face.
"What?-" Harry shouted.
A sudden movement stopped Harry for shouting more
"That's right harry!" The cold harsh voice that had tortured him spoke once more. Voldemort was alive he continued a smile appearing on his snake like face.
"I knew about the prophecy, Harry boy I knew I was they're it was made the reason you didn't that night was because I turned you into my final Horcrux. I did not know for that the sixth time I fractured myself it would almost me. I needed that prophecy so Dumbledore wouldn't find out!-- Argh!" His voice became weak as dumbledore whispered something and Harry fell limp. Dumbledore tears rushing out of his eyes.
"I'm so sorry Harry but your scar was wrong."

"Left" spoke Rufus Scrimgeour. He was taking mug shots of the eaters. "Come on, join your dear Lucius, Narcissa". "Yay for me!" said Narcissa. "You too, Draco" Scrimgeour said. "Rah", said Draco very un-energetically. it was over.

As Harry placed the ing curse on Voldermort, He knew now that this was the end of all things...
As he watched him , Harry fell to the ground clutching his side breathing his last. Because he knew, if Voldermort was to . he had to go with him. He felt someone rush to his side and hot tears upon his face.
He looked up and it was the very face he wanted to see,
Ginny. Tear-streaked and battle worn, but happy that the greatest threat to the world was . He reached out and touched her face.

"Harry, it's over we've won Harry, We can be together now!"
"I'm sorry Ginny, i'm sorry. I'm . I have to."
"No you don't have to! we can take you to St. Mungos! heal you! you'll be alright! i just know you !" she said with furious tears coming out of her eyes.
"Ginny, look at me. I'm too badly injured to survive. Tell Ron and Hermione they're the best friends i ever had and i don't think id've gotten far without their help. Look after them for me Ginny." said Harry with a small smile on his face.
"Harry dont go! please dont leave me... i-i-i love you!" she said.
"No i have too, i cant live much longer now that ive been wounded... cheer up... i'm happy... i see my parents again.. and Sirius" He said with eyes shining with tears and happiness.
"And Siruis... Ginny dont grieve.. my purpose has been achieved... i am happy now.. i love you ginny. we'll meet again...I love you..."

Ginny let out a howl of despair as he closed his eyes and breathed one last time.
As she watched him . she noticed how peaceful and happy he looked. Almost as if he were a child all over again. Free from all the burdens he had to shoulder.
She felt that Harry had at last found peace.
As she got up to leave she felt something swish by her hand & thought that she could see Harry, as he looked down at her and smiled just for instant... and then he was gone.
The sky slowly brightened up. The sun peeped thru.
Ginny knew that one day... one day... she'd see him again...

A few weeks later at Harry's , Ron, Hermione and Ginny were the only ones left by Harry's coffin. Everyone else had gone their separate ways.
"You know, the funny thing is that i felt Harry was actually happy to . Like he had done what he had to do. Y'know" said Ron thoughtfully
"I hope he did. Goodbye Harry, Goodbye." said Hermione tearfully, clinging to Ron's arm. In all this darkness she had found something new.
"Well guys let's get home before it's dark" said Ginny with a wan smile.
"I would'nt want you to miss the engagement party" she said.
"Harry would've been really happy to see this" said Hermione.
"Yea i know mate, i know. Let's just hope he's watching us from up there!" said Ron.

And as the all walked down the road to the car, they thought that all of this. All these adventures and battles with Voldermort had all started because of one thing. one thing...
That thing had all started on a halloween night 17 years ago, with one little boy who lived. And his...Scar.

the dark lord was coming nearer. Snape and bellatrix at his heals. harry was laying on the floor paralyzed, unable to move a finger. voldemort suddenly turned around, making a last flick with his wand at Snape and bellatrix. they hit the ground with nasty "bump".

"no one", said voldemort, "can cheat on me, no one!"
as harry now understood that they were good, in the end.
suddenly, an image arose in harry's mind. an image of his mother. as he was looking into her face, he felt a power that he had never felt before. the Freezing Charm that was on him stopped working. he got up, pointing his wand at voldemort.

harry woke up, to do the last preparations for his wedding.

and, as dumbledore said in his speach, "the and life are coming together."

having ed voldemort, harry married. three years later harry happily touched the unscared forehead of his son.

The room was dark. harry looked up. voldemort had his wand to his harry's neck. before he knew what he was doing, harry blurted out the whole prophecy. Voldemort who only knew half of it was taken aback. This whole business was one big misunderstanding. the prophecy was actually a ploy by trelawny to get a job at hogwarts. it was a lie. Voldemort held out his hand to harry who grabbed it.

Voldemort declared, "harry, so sorry about this. but you have to admit it was kinda fun"

"yeah" said harry in his usual tone. "too bad that horse guy trampled trelawny because we could have gotten her back."

"whateva. hey by the way, i was reading on your facebook page that you and ginny are in a gonna pop the question?"

Yeah" harry said, but do you think i could have one of your horcrux rings to give to her for the engagement?

Two weeks later harry and ginny got married, and guess who was the best man: voldemort! he gave the best speech too, because he practically stalked harry for 17 years. he had so many funny stories to tell like how harry used to wet the bed at his aunt and uncles house and then swap his sheets with his fat cousin's.
after the wedding, voldemort engraved a lighting shaped scar on his forehead as a sign of blood brothers.

With Voldermorts hand closing around Harry's throat his eyes began to slide out of focus. Everything was quieting and his eyelids were shutting slowly but then suddenly there was a great ROAR that Harry could hear in the distance. With all the effort left in him he opened his eyes and saw a great Lion pounce onto Voldermort.
"Godric?" whispered Harry.
"You can't. Not now! You not slaughter the great Lord Voldermort. AVADA KEDAVRA" came piercing screams of the man who had destroyed so many lives.
The spell rebounded off the ceiling of The Chamber of Secrets and hit Harry sqaurely in the stomach. As he crumpled to the wet floor the last thing Harry 'The boy who lived' felt was the twinge of his worshipped scar.

As for Harry Potter, although he was physically , his memory was as alive as ever. Throughout the wizarding world, no hero had ever fell so divinely from the lips of witches and wizards everywhere, as the savior of their very existance. Although he could no longer bear the title "The Boy Who Lived", he would always be known as "He Who Gave the Greatest sacrifice", and only one mark was needed for Harry as proof of his bravery, and that was the one thing he had loathed all of his life. The Scar.

"Harry Potter, you are a Horcrux," said Voldemort. "Even though you destroyed all the other Horcrux, you are the sixth one, apart from myself."

Dumbledore and the others were outside the barrier. Harry saw Ron, Hermione, the D.A members as well as Rufus Scrimgeour. Harry also saw a couple of Aurors and the Daily Prophet standing right next to the barrier.

Hermione suddenly realized what Harry was about to do and she screamed, "NO, Harry you musn't!" She suddenly started running towards the barrier but Dumbledore stopped her.

"Lupin, Alastor, please take the children away," said Dumbledore with a harsh voice. But both of them did not move.

"Harry, now that you have weakened Voldemort, this is your chance," said Dumbledore with a cry-like voice.

Harry understood what Dumbledore had said and took both his and Voldemort's wand. He pointed one wand at Voldemort and pointed the other one at himself.

Harry finally yelled "AVADA KEDAVRA!" A stream of green lights came out of both wands and hit both Harry and Voldemort in the chest. Then both of them fell down to the ground.

Harry's friends all screamed and started to cry, but also the barrier started to disappear. It was finally over.

There stood in the middle of the room, was the archway with the softly moving veil, the same one that he, Harry had seen just two years ago. There was silence and peace in this room, the only noise of the soft swooshing veil and the clinking in Harry's pockets. He knew that he was safe here for the time being, just to think of his final move. His heart told him that everyone who loved him and cared for him, he could meet again- behind the veil, after all is just the beginning, harry thought. He tentavely moved closer and closer to the veil until he was less than a meter away from the archway. Behind him, the door opened, and stumbling from it was Voldemort.
"Harry, stop. Rather than giving up your life, join forces with me." He said clutching his chest panting and struggling to stand upright, due to the power of the room
from below Harry looked up at his pitiless figure, he knew what had to be done.
"No." he replied. "You are a mortal, you deserve this pain do you know that?"
Voldemort's eyes narrowed and smiled slyly, "Aah... Harry, you really think that this pain i have is from the damage you have me through a duel?"
harry again replied, "No. The pain you are feeling is because i have destroyed your horcruxes" And one by one he removed the destroyed artifacts, that Voldemort had once used to keep safe is precious soul, that was now demolished. Voldemorts face went from horror, shock to fierce and outrage. He lifed up and pointed his wand to Harry, but before he could say anything Harry interrupted, " me then, because by doing so, you yourself" and then in response to Voldemort's confused look, Harry explained to him the grave error that he made when he came to him on the night of Halloween.
"....So you see, you implanted a part of your soul into me through the scar." harry fininshed.
Voldemort now understood what he had done, but now reralised, that he had to prevent harry going through the veil.

Harry turned away from voldemort and walked upto the veil, turned and said to Voldemort, "I'll wait for you on the otherside." And without waiting for a reply, Harry walked through the veil. The last thing he heard, was the anguish cry from voldemort. Harry suddenly opened his eyes and stood up, taking in his surroundings, was this heavan? He looked around,, the sky had a deep red, orange sunset and he himself was situated in an ancient stone area around him, filled with a floor of sand. Harry then began to realise shadows and dark, human-like figures around him,one in particular running to him, shouting, "Harry!" focusing his eyes, he recognised the familiar shape and began running towards him, "Sirius," Harry muttered tears in his eyes. Harry was again reunited with Sirius, his parents and those who had d for him could not be seen however. "Sirius, where is everyone, my parents, dumbledore, Lupin, Hagrid, Neville and Snape?" Harry asked. Sirius pointed behind the stone barrier, and there stood all his lost loved ones waving and smiling at him. Sirius then said, "Harry its not over yet, Voldemort be here any second, the duel is not over, you must continue it." Harry looked at him in shock and replied, "How can i? i'm so weak and have no wand" " With the help of three ppl, gryffindor, hufflepuff and ravenclaw. slytherin is going to join forces with Voldemort." Sirius quickly replied, and without saying anything else he joined everyone else behind the barrier.

And so the final duel came, the most courageous duel that had ever taken place, and Voldemort was finally destroyed. Harry woke up, and found all around him, people crying and smiling. Ginny, Hermione, Ron, The Weasleys all looked at Harry who lay there recovering from the battle to stay on Earth. He was saved, by love, the true reason he lived. And so Harry lived on to tell the tale from generation to generation of his blood line (of that of gryffindor) and finally became headmaster of Hogwarts (after marrying ginny of course) Hermione had taken over Rufus, and led the wizarding world safely (and of course bringing her institution into action- SPEW) and her husband ron, turned out to be the best goalkeeper for the England quidditch team. And of course wizarding world was never again beaten by the likes of Tom Riddle ever again.
