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...

Mrs. Weasley was angry, very angry that she punished Harry, a full grown Wizard. Harry, of course angry at her, walked away, after all he has done, she treated him like a little boy. All that remained, was Ron's scar.

The world was changed. Dark clouds and mist were hanging over all cities and villages. The prime minister knew what had happened; he hadn't been visited by the other minister for a long time. The other side probably won the battle that he was last refered to.

He looked out of the window and tried to make up his mind about the future. On the streets people were mentioning climate change as a cause for the wheather change, but he knew better. Soon the human world would be next.

Almost a year ago he had set his hopes on a boy the other minister referred to, but clearly that boy also had lost the battle. He couldn't remember his name, only that he had some kind of scar...

...And finally, both the Lord of Dark and the boy who lived were face to face. Harry was injured, tired, his legs paralyzed and his scar was drilling his head, but yet he was boiling inside, and yelled:
"You�re nothing but a er, somebody you!"
"Don�t be such a stupid boy, Potter" shouted Voldemort, "I know what you and your little friends have done with my horcruxes, but no matter, I�m still much more powerfull than any wizard, crucio!"
At that point, Harry started to feel so much pain as never before. Screaming almost to tears, he thought he be like Neville�s fathers, when suddenly, the pain stopped steeply. He could see Voldemort�s wand flewing off his hand, and with a lot of effort, stand up on the stage and shout "Accio wand!" at the same time that Voldemort, wandless, tried to intercept Harry�s wand with his own hand. But he couldn�t.
All he could hear was "Avada Kedavra", twice, from two different wizards, and then fell into the stage, completely as he always feared...
It was the end, finaly. The magical world was free again. There be fireworks, witches and wizards happily celebrating the second fall of the evilness, but he couldn�t feel nothing but sadness, sitting beside Snape, and crying right over his body, a body with a forehead marked with a familiar scar...

...and the Order of the Phoenix would always remember the famous boy and his peculiar scar.

Headmistress Granger leaned foreward in her chair. "Sit down, Longbottom," she said. She observed kindly as the small boy with the chubby face tremblingly sat. "Don't be nervous," she said, "I knew your father, you know. We were friends." "Y-y-yes, I know," Severus replied haltingly; "Mr. Potter told me." "And I was there when he d," she continued, "and because of that, and because of what your father did, I need to tell you what it all means, and about how you got that scar."

Harry stared into the Mirror of Erised and saw that since the last encounter with the mirror, something had long since changed. Rather than seeing Harry, James, and Lily Potter all assembled together, he saw himself finally triumph over Voldemort.

He looked behind him and saw the ghost of Sirius and Regulus Black both smiling at him. Sirius raised his wand, pointed at the mirror and shouted "Avada Kedavra". As the mirror shattered, Harry saw that, through the mirror's frame, was a now , limp body of the Dark Lord himself, Lord Voldemort.

The mirror spoke the truth. Harry raised his hand to his forehead and felt the lightening shaped scar dematerialize. Harry's life truly was about his scar...

As Harry looked around at the ruins from the latest battle, he realized that it would be the last. He had finally managed to vanquish the Dark Lord as the prophecy had suggested. He thought about the many people that had helped him on this journey. Neville, Professor McGonagall, Hagrid, Luna and Ron were currently at Hogwarts. Madame Pomfrey was tending to their injuries. They would all be fine. As they say, time heals all wounds.

But there were casualties, many casualties. Both sides had suffered losses. Lucius, Wormtail, Kingsley and Rookwood had all d. But the thought of Snape still haunted him. He was unsure of what to think about Snape. He had always thought he was evil, trying to hurt Harry when all along he was on the good side. Harry wondered what would have happened if he had survived. Would they have been able to forgive and forget?

Suddenly, Harry heard footsteps. "Harry? Are you alright?", panted Hermione. She and Ginny hurried to his side. "I can't believe it is finally over," Ginny whispered as she grabbed his hand. "Let's go check on the others," Harry said. He squeezed Ginny's hand and wondered if he would ever be able to forget about his scar.

Dude! Where's my SCAR?

Harrys hand found Ginny's, and the horrible memorys were drowned out, all was right in the world. Voldemort gone, and though a terrible price had to be paid, it was what was right. Harry threw away the useless bit of wood he held in his hand, and drew the sword of godric from his back pointing it at voldemort, 'your done potter!' he snarled, as he jabbed his old wand at the couple. nothing happened, harry kicked him from his knees, 'you took away everything i ever loved tom' he muttered, 'then you forced me to keep living, now iv taken everything you loved, all the power of the world, bar the love that people can create on their own. now im going to let you live, you choose your imortality, now you live with it forever, but you live as those who you despise, you live as a muggle, no more magic, its done, all gone, goodbye tom.'. he turned to walk away, then let go of ginnys hand, ' one second' he turned and looked into the red eyes of voldemort, already beginning to fade back to the green of tom riddle, he punched him as hard as he could square in the face, tom fell to the floor again. harry bent over him, 'that felt good, show es a look then' he looked down on toms bleeding face, and slapped him on the cheek, 'ouch.. that ones going to scar...

"He's waking up!"
Harry opened his eyes and stared into his Uncle Vernon's eyes.
"Voldemort! Where is he?!" cried Harry, trying and failing to lift himself out of his bed, "He's gonna Ron and Hermione!"
"Volde-who?!" grunted Uncle Vernon, "Brilliant! The car crash has addled his brain Petunia!"
"Where am I?" mumbled Harry angrily.
"Where are you? A quick fill-in so then, boy," said Vernon, "It's Tuesday, the 2nd of June, you're in hospital and you've just woken up from a seven year coma."
"B-b-but Voldemort!"
"Not this rubbish again! Look! You're seventeen years old and when you were ten you went into a coma after you were struck by a car!"
"Give me a mirror!" cried Harry. Aunt Petunia handed him one, muttering how how she had preferred him in a coma. He stared at his forehead and the reality dawned on him. None of it had been real. He no longer had the lightning shaped scar.

Gone were the days in which Harry Potter was known for being "the boy who lived", or "the chosen one", no, now he was known for by many names, "er" to the most loyal eaters, " defeater" to the ministry, or "greatest wizard now living" is what it said on the chocolate frog cards. But to the dursleys, the family who had raised, and loved him very, very, deep down, he is known as "that boy with that creepy scar."

"Ahhhhh." harry sighed. the hot sun beat down on ron, hermione, and harry as they walked out of Honeydukes.
"you know, I think that this is the only quiet year we had at hogwarts." said harry.
"yeah," said ron. "maybe we should get back to the dormitories and get back to some stu. Blimey, harry! i think I'm turning into hermione!"
"oh, shut up ron!" hermione said.
suddenly they heard a shout.
everybody started running away from hogwarts, while harry, ron, and hermione started darting twoards the castle.
"come on, we have to see what malfoy's done now!" harry yelled.
"how do you know it's me, potter?" said a cold, cruel, malfoyish voice.
"so it was you. who'd you ?" ron asked.
"why should i tell you? you're stupid order has suffered a lot from it anyway!"
"It's fine, Draco, tell them who d at the sight of us."
Lucius came out of no where.
"it was that lupin, moody, that charlie weasley, that tonks person, and three others." malfoy sneered.
"WHO!?" harry, ron and hermione shouted at once.
"see for yourself." malfoy guestured his hand twoard the gryffindor common room. there, lay three bos of the few people that harry trusted the most other than ron and hermione; neville, luna, and ginny.
"yes, potter. I had a choice you see." said a cold voice "I only wanted the pig and the red-head. but grey back had a hungry feeling in himself so I let him feed on the lovegood girl. and now potter, the time has come that it is your end. AVADA KEDAVRA!" the cold voice of voldemort shouted.
There was a green flash of light and hermione suddenly felt that she was squeezing no one's arm. harry had gone. dissapeared. never to come back to the face of the earth. everyone, even malfoy had an empty part in their heart gone with harry. but with all this sorrow, no one noticed that not only one person had dissapeared, but two. Lord Voldemort, the dark lord, had gone with harry potter, a 17 year old boy. but what malfoy felt was that he should respect the dark lord, and follow in his footsteps. and ron felt that he should respect his best mate, the one who helped him through hard times, and become the next harry potter. or maybe just ron weasley. and that night, when ron and malfoy were safely at their homes, in bead lying awake, the only word that they kept on saying in their mind was "scar scar scar scar scar scar."
