Re: Fan Scripts: Remake Harry Potter

Phrozenone, you write the scenes nicely but some of the scenes you included are ABOLUTELY POINTLESS. Why bother with Igor Karkaroff? He has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the plot, it is just a waste of screen time in my opinion. I would have include Spinner's End instead, or write a more relevant scene.

The Dursleys - the scene is much TOO LONG, and include some absolutely pointless pieces of dialog. For example, I would have cut Kreacher and Grimmauld Place all together... and Dumbledore talking at the end is too long.

Later, why bother with OWLs results? They have nothing to do with the plot of the book. I would also cut both Bill & Fleur, but this is a much harder choice. Again, CUT KARKAROFF, his mentions is pointless.

I would cut Quidditch, cut the Madam Malkin shop scene, and as much as I like her - cut Luna Lovegood too. She'll come back in DH.

I found a old HBP scripts I've written. They are very old and not that good, but here it is if you're interested... might have cut too much, though. I have two versions of the opening - Spinner's End and a new scene.

----------------------

FIRST OPENING
EXT. A MUGGLE STREET, NIGHT

Music begins. A shot of a dark town from above. The camera delay on a street: someone is moving there.

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
AVADA KEDAVRA!

A shot of green light; The man is falling down down, dead. Two womans get out from behind the bush. It is Bellatrix and Narcissa. Bellatrix kneeling over the body.

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
Just a muggle, I though perhaps an auror... Cissy, wait!

Narcissa start walking.

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
It is a betrayel of the dark lord!

NARCISSA MALFOY
Thatís my son! You donít understand, Bella, you never had sons...

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
Narcissa Malfoy, donít do it! The Dark Lord ordered you not to!

NARCISSA MALFOY
Leave me alone. Iíve done my desicion!

The two womans reach a house. Narcissa knocks on the door: it opens and we see Severus Snape standing in there.

INT SNAPEíS HOUSE

SEVERUS SNAPE
Narcissa, Bellatrix, what a suprise! Come in...

NARCISSA MALFOY
I need to talk to you, Snape. Are we alone?

SEVERUS SNAPE
Yes, we are quite alone. What is it, Narcissa?

NARCISSA MALFOY
The Dark Lord has forbidden me to talk about it, but...

SEVERUS SNAPE
Then you should shut your mouth!

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
You see? Even he say you canít speak on the Dark Lord secret plans for anyone!

SEVERUS SNAPE
However... I already know the plan.

Little silence.

NARCISSA MALFOY
I know you would! The Dark Lord trust you so much!

SEVERUS SNAPE
Well... what do you need me to do?

NARCISSA MALFOY
My son! My only son!

SEVERUS SNAPE
I canít change the Dark Lordís mind, if thatís what youíre asking. He already decided: Draco will do it.

Narcissa start crying.

NARCISSA MALFOY
But why? He is too young! He will never make it! And... The Dark Lord does not want him to succeed, right? He want him to die trying, as a revenge for Lucios failure!


BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
You should be proud! Your son is about to do a very important mission, and...

NARCISSA MALFOY
I donít care itís important! He will die! Heís too proud to ask for help! You can help him, Severus...

SEVERUS SNAPE
I can try, but...

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
Of course, heíll try, but he canít promise! Bet he has some excuse...

NARCISSA MALFOY
No, he means it! Will you please swear it? Will you make the Unbreakable Vow?

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
What? You are asking him to vow on his own lives? You know how the vow works, donít you? If heíll break it, heíll die!

Silence. Close up of Narcissa desprate face, then to Bellaís face, and finally, Snapeís face.

SEVERUS SNAPE
Yes, Narcissa, I am prepared to make the Unbreakable Vow.

NARCISSA MALFOY
Thank you, Severus. Come here...

She takes out her wand, and take Snape's hand.

NARCISSA MALFOY
Severus Snape, will you look after my son and try to help him?

SEVERUS SNAPE
I will.

NARCISSA MALFOY
Will you do everything in your power to protect him from any harm?

SEVERUS SNAPE
I will.

NARCISSA MALFOY
And... shall it seems he'll fail... Will you carry on the deed the Dark Lord ordered him to perform?

SEVERUS SNAPE
I will.

A great flaming snake emerges from Narcissa's wand, going around Snape, and straight into the camera. We then see the sky, where a text appears:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.


ALTERNATIVE OPENING

1 EXT. VILLAGE, RAINY AND DARK DAY

A few shots of STREETS with houses. Some of the houses are ruined down. The DARK MARK is visible far in the sky. A few DEís are visible around the corner, wearing masks and black robes so their face canít be seen. They run to a house and blast it with a spell.

2 INT. A HOUSE.

DEs are inside, pointing their wand on somewhere in the apartment.

DE1, has a cold and scary voice.
Search the house. Now!

The other run to the rooms. DE1 stays in his place.

RANDOM DE
Heís here, master!

DE1
Good. Bring him to me.

The DEs are returning to the hall, forcing Horace Slughorn to come with them.

DE1
Leave, all of you. Me and him will have a little
chat.

The others leave. DE1 take off his mask. It is Lord Voldemort.

VOLDEMORT
Remember me, Old Sluggy?

Silence. Slughorn is looking scared.

VOLDEMORT
You used to teach me when I was young, remember? I
pretended to respect you. The pathetic part is that
you actually believed it.

Another silence. A close up on Voldemortís face. Show a quick shot of teenage Voldemort. Slughorn is still looking scared.

VOLDEMORT
But in the end, it was worth to do all this,
remember? You gave me information. Very important
information.

Slughorn is speaking at last.

SLUGHORN
No! Please donít kill me, I will do anything, I
will...

Voldemort laughs.
VOLDEMORT
Not as brave as the phoenix lot, right? I wondered
why you never helped the Order of the Phoenix. Now I
realise why, you pathetic old man.

Another silence.

VOLDEMORT
Look at you. An old, useless scared man. I still
wonder how could you believe that I admired you.
That someone ever admired you.

Slughorn is still looking scared. His voice his trembeling,

SLUGHORN
What do you want?

VOLDEMORT
Quit your job, Slughorn. Break your contact with
Dumbledore. Never Ė ever Ė speak with him again.
And, if you ever think of mentioning our little
chat, when I was sixteen...

Slughorn is trembeling.

VOLDEMORT
You want a little taste of what will happen to you?
Crucio!

Slughorn is screaming, deeply in pain. Voldemort laughs. He raise his wand and Slughorn stops screaming.

VOLDEMORT
That was just the promo, you pathetic old man. You
are very lucky to stay alive. You helped me once.
Lord Voldemort pay back to those who helped him...
But remember, if you ever mention our conversation,
back in my school days...

He leaves the last sentence in the air. There is no need to complete it. Voldemort is leaving the house.

Camera leaves the room. Bright flash. We can see the title over the dark skies:

ďHARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCEĒ

3. INT. BURROW, LIVING ROOM

Trio+Ginny are sitting in a room. Ron and Harry are playing wizard chess. Hermione is reading a newspaper. Headline screams: ďHARRY POTTER: THE CHOSEN ONE?Ē

HARRY
All the paperís full of it. They all think Iím the
chosen one. They see me as some kind of hero. That I
would have to destroy Voldemort in the end.

HERMIONE
They donít *know* anything Ė they are just guessing.

RON
Well they are right. You are the chosen one.

GINNY
You have nothing to worry Harry. Dumbledore will
protect you, surely. He wonít leave you alone. He...

A knock on the door. Mrs Weasley, briefly appears, open the door. Dumbledore enters the room.

MOLLY
Hey Albus! What a suprise! Tea?

DUMBLEDORE
No, Molly, thanks. Actually I came to talk with
Harry.

Ginny gives Harry an ďI-TOLD-YOU-SOĒ look. Harry stand up.

DUMBLEDORE
After you.

4. EXT. BURROW GARDEN DAYLIGHT

Harry and Dumbledore walking to the garden. Dumbledore hands is inside a pocket.

DUMBLEDORE
How are you feeling, Harry?

HARRY (LIFELESS VOICE)
Fine.

DUMBLEDORE
You donít look so. Listen, I know discovering the
prophecy is not easy. To discover you are the one to
destroy Voldemort... but you have to know something.
Youíre not alone. Youíre with me.

Harry looks at him.

DUMBLEDORE (CONTINUED)
This year, Harry, I am going to prepare you to what
lies ahead. You are going to have a series of
private lessons with me.

HARRY
Private lessons? With you?

DUMBLEDORE
Yes, Harry. Just came to tell you that. I have to
leave now, sorry. Goodbye.

As he leaves, he raise his hand. It is black, burned and dead-looking.

HARRY
Professor! What happened to your hand?

DUMBLEDORE
Not now, Harry. This is a nice tale; I wish to do it
justice. I will tell you someday.

And with that, he leaves.

5. INT. BURROW LIVING ROOM.

Harry re-enters the room.

RON
What did he wanted?

HARRY
Iím going to have private lessons with him this
year. Heís going to prepare me to the battle with
Voldemort.

Ginny gives Harry and ďI-TOLD-YOU-SOĒ look, again. Harry tries to change the subject.

HARRY
Anything interesting in the paper?

HERMIONE
There is a new Minister of Magic. His name is Rufus
Scrimegour.

(We see a picture of his face).

RON
He looks tough.

HERMIONE
He used to catch dark wizards.

Molly Weasley enter the room.

MOLLY
Come on everyobdy! We are going to Diagon Alley!

6. EXT DIAGON ALLEY, SUNNY AFTERNOON.

Wide shot of the place from behind. Trio+Ginny walks down the street. A random kid point his hand on Harry and smile.

HARRY
Again! They all think Iím a kind of hero!

The kid moves, behind him we can see Draco Malfoy running across the street.

RON
Did you saw Malfoy? I wonder what heís doing...

HARRY
Well, thereís only one way to know.

HERMIONE
Harry, you canít seriously mean that...

But before she could finish the sentence Harry, Ron and Ginny disappeard. She makes an annoying sound.

HERMIONE (ANNOYED)
Okay, Iím coming.

7. EXT: KNOCTORN ALLEY, SAME AFTERNOON.

Trio+Ginny walk down the street.

HARRY
There he is!

We can see Malfoy talking to Borgin inside a shop.

MALFOY
Youíll know how to fix it then?

BORGIN
Iíll have to see it, Iím afraid.

MALFOY
I got a feeling you donít understand how serious is this.

Malfoy shows Borgin something on his hand. Borgin flinches.

MALFOY
So... can you fix it?

BORGIN (SCARED)
Iíll do my best.

MALFOY
No. Youíll do much more than youíre best.

And with that, he leaves. Trio+Ginny is shocked.

RON
What the bloody hell was that??

8. EXT A FOREST, DAYTIME.

The Hogwarts express is driving on a bridge.

9. INT. A COMPARTMENT IN THE TRAIN.

Trio is sitting together.

RON
Fishy, isnít it? This Malfoy thing.

HARRY
Yes. I wonder what he wants to fix. It canít be
something good.

HERMIONE
Donít take it too seriously. It may be nothing
serious.

HARRY
But you saw how seriously Borgin took him? I wonder
what Malfoy showed him on his arm...

Little silence.



HARRY
Wait a minute! it was his left arm, wasnít it? Maybe
it was the Dark Mark! Maybe he replaced his father
as a Death Eater!

HERMIONE
Dunno, Harry. Do you honestly think Voldemort will
let a 16 years old boy in?

Before Harry can answer, Ginny pass by in a corridor.

HERMIONE
Hey, Ginny. Do you want to seat with us?

GINNY
Sorry, I canít. I have to meet Dean.

She leaves.

HARRY
Dean?

HERMIONE
Dean Thomas. Her boyfriend.

RON
Wait a minute! Dean Thomas is... her boyfriend?

HERMIONE
Yes. Why are you so in shock?

RON
Never liked him.

HERMIONE
Just to remind you, he was a good friend of you for
five years. You simply donít like that fact that
your sister is going out with people.

Silence. Neville Longbottom enter the compartement.

NEVILLE
Harry, come here please.

Harry walks with him. Neville hand him a letter.

HARRY
Itís an invatition for a lunch with... Professor
Slughorn.

RON
Whoís Professor Slughorn?

10. INT. ANOTHER COMPARTMENT IN THE TRAIN

A few kids is sitting around an old fat man called Horace Slughorn.

SLUGHORN
I am professor Slughorn! I will be a new teacher
this year! Now, do we know everyone?

He turns to the kids. They all looking ashamed and donít reply.

SLUGHORN
Well, this is Cormac Mclaggen Ė his uncle holds a
office at the ministry. And Belbi Ė his uncle
invented the Wolfsbane potion. Neville Longbottom Ė
His parents were well known aurors before being
tortured to madness by the Death Eatres. And Harry
Potter needs no introducing, of course!

Little Silence. Harry looks un-confident.

SLUGHORN (CONTINUED)
The rumors, my dear boy! The prophecy! The chosen
one! The fight in the Ministry of Magic!

NEVILLE
I was there too. There is no prophecy. The papers
just making out things. As usual.

SLUGHORN
Well, The papers does have an annoying inclination
to make things up... Anyway, Harry, I used to know
your mother. Such an extraordinary witch. So smart
and talented. But sheís dead now... Itís terrible...

11. EXT. HOGWARTS CASTLE, EVENING

A wise shot of the castle.

12. EXT. HOGWARTS CASTLE, MORNING.

Another wide shot.

13. INT. A CLASSROOM, MORNING.

We see the class, and Snape enters it. Class is silence. Some kids are looking in their books.

SNAPE
Put your books away. NOW! I want to talk to you!

HARRY
Where is Professor Slughorn, sir?

SNAPE
Raise your hand, Potter! Professor Slughorn is not
your Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. I am.

RON
You? But Dumbledore rejected your request for the
post in the last 6 years! What made him change his
mind?

SNAPE
Detention, Weasley. If you ask another question
today it will be a WEEK of detentions. I want to
talk to you.

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
The Dark Arts are many, eternal and ever-changing.
Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster
Ė each time you kill on head, the second one will
attack you, stronger then the previous. Permit me to
say that it is probably the most important class in
this school, especially in this war times.

SNAPE
On those walls

He points at some paintings.

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
you can see a few examples to what the Dark Arts can
do. You can see what happens to those who feel the
Cruciatos Curse

He points on a man whoís in pain.

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
the Dementorís Kiss

He points to a man with a blank-expression.

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
or the Inferious

Pointing on a picture of a Inferi

SEAMUS
What are the Inferious?

SNAPE
Dead bodies, controlled by a dark spell. The Inferi
have no will of their own; They are like a puppets,
forced to do what the wizard makes them too. Since
they have

Close Up of the Inferious in the picture.

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
no blood to spill nor they have vulnerable points
like a heart or a mind, it is extremely difficult to
kill them. However, they are creatures of the dark,
and they fear light and warm.

Close up of Harryís face

SNAPE (CONTINUED)
If you ever come face-to-face with one, the best
thing you can do is to light a fire.

A Slytherin KID come running in to class.

BOY
Professor! Sorry to interrupt, but itís urgent! Itís
Crabbe, Malfoyís friend! He entered the Broken
Vanishing Cabinet! By mistake, of course, but

SNAPE (INTERRUPTING)
Take me to him.

14. INT. A CLASSROOM

Crabbe is sitting on the floor, confused. Malfoy and the boy enter the class. Snape takes Crabbe in his hand.


SNAPE
Scatter now, everyone! Showís over!

They all leave. A close up on Malfoyís face...

15. INT. A CORRIDOR

Trio walks together.

HARRY
A Vanishing Cabinet? What is that?

HERMIONE
Thereís supposed to be a pair. You can enter one of
them, and then to get out from the other. Good to
make quick escapes.

RON
That boy... he said it was broken. What does it
mean?

HERMIONE
Well, you canít use it obviously. You canít enter.

HARRY
But if you enter the working one...?

HERMIONE
Youíll be lost. Stuck. Youíll have nowhere to go.
Thatís probably what happend to Crabbe.

16. INT. A CLASSROOM

Kids are sitting. Slughorn enters the class.

SLUGHORN
Hello everybody! My name is Professor Slughorn and I
will be your new Potions teacher! Get out your
books, everybody...

They all do so. Harry looks confused.

HARRY
Professor, Iím sorry. My bookís gone.

SLUGHORN
You can take one of these for today. They are all
second-handed, but still...

Harry takes a second-handed book.

SLUGHORN
Well, we have a marvalous lesson today, and to
celebrate our first lesson, I decided to give a
special prize to the one who will give me the best
potion today! Well, the prize is... THIS!

He takes out the bottle of Felix Felicis.

SLUGHORN
Know what is is? Yes, miss Granger?

HERMIONE
It is Felix Felicis! It gives the drinker luck!

SLUGHORN
Exactly! This bottle is enough for 12 hours of luck!
Once youíve taken it, everything will go right to
you! Nice prize, isnít it?

Class nod.

SLUGHORN (CONTINUED)
Well, how can you win it? Open page 6 in your books.
You need to make a ĎDrought Of Living Deathí until
the end of the lesson. The one with the best potion
will be the winner!

Everyone is looking at their books.

HARRY (TO RON AND HERMIONE)
Look at that! The previous owner of this book has
written all over the page! I canít read it!

17. INT. A CLASSROOM (LATER)

A shot of the class working.

HERMIONE
What are you doing, Harry? You are adding a
wormwood! Itís not in the book!

HARRY
Maybe, but the previous owner added it to the list
in his handwrite! Well, it suppose to be blue now...
look at that!

Harryís potion is turning blue.

HARRY
Well, now, stir it clockwise...

HERMIONE
It is not clockwise, Harry! It is against clockwise!

HARRY
But the previous owner say it is clockwise... look,
my potion looks exactly like the one in the picture!

SLUGHORN
Timeís up! Letís see what you have to show me!

18. INT A CLASSROOM (LATER)

Slughorn is getting to Harryís table.

SLUGHORN
Wow! Look at that everyone! The clear winner! Very
good, Harry, very good... Here is your prize Ė Felix
Felicis. You deserve it. Use it wisely!

19. INT. A CORRIDOR.

HARRY
Look at that book! The previous owner has corrected
nearly every potion in this book!

RON
Who is the previous owner? Perhaps he has written
his name on it!

HARRY
Well... Here!

A close up on a page... Harry is reading:
ďThe book is the property of The Half-Blood PrinceĒ

RON
The Half-Blood Prince? Who is that?

HARRY
Dunno...

20. INT. DUMBLEDOREíS OFFICE

Harry enter the office. Dumbledore is sitting there.

DUMBLEDORE
Good evening, Harry. Sit down.

Harry is sitting down. The Pensieve is on the table

DUMBLEDORE
Now that you know about the prophecy, I think itís
time for me to share some information with you
About Voldemort.

HARRY
What information?

DUMBLEDORE
We need to learn about him as much as possible. But
there is another reason... these lessons have
another and much greater reason.

Harry looks confused.

DUMBLEDORE
I canít tell you now. First of all... you must know
some things. You remember the pensieve, I guess?

Harry nods.

DUMBLEDORE
I got something I want to show you. After you,
Harry.

Harry touches the pensieve and enter.

21. INT. A DARK CAVE

Harry and Dumbledore walk together in a dark place. We can see two kids from a distance: One is the black-haired young Tom Riddle, the other is the red-heared Amy Benson.

AMY
Where are you taking me, Tom?

TOM
Thatís a suprise.

Amy looks at him, charmed. He just smiles gently.

They reach the big, black lake.

AMY
This is a scary place, Tom! What do you want to show
me? What if weíll lose our way out?

TOM
You donít need to worry about that.

AMY
Why not?

TOM
Because you wonít get out of here. Never!

22. INT. DUMBLEDOREíS OFFICE

A quick cut, and weíre back in Dumbledoreís office.

HARRY
What was that?

DUMBLEDORE
As you may have guessed, that was a lonely orphan
boy called Tom Riddle.

HARRY
The teenage Voldemort.

DUMBLEDORE
Indeed. The girl with him is another girl from his
orphanage.

HARRY
What... what he was doing?

DUMBLEDORE
At that point, Tom Riddle dosenít known that heís a
wizard. But it seemes he has learned to have certain
controls of his powers. He knew he has powers,
though he canít named them as Ďmagicí.

DUMBLEDORE (CONTINUED)
Tom Riddle was a young sadistic boy. In the scene we
just watched, Riddle was taking a poor girl into a
cave to torture her. She survived, but the other
kids said she never came back to herself.

Harry scans the room, and he finds a ring on the desk.

HARRY
That ring. It has the symbol of Slytherin on it.

DUMBELDORE
Yes Harry. You can guess who was her previous owner.

HARRY
Slytherin himself?

DUMBLEODRE
Actually, it was Voldemort. That ring has passed in
his family for generations.

HARRY
Then why do you have it?

DUMBLEDORE
One day you will know.

Harry understand this is the end of the conversation and leaves.

23. EXT. HOGWARTS CASTLE
Another wide shot of the castle, from different angle.

24. INT. A CORRIDOR.
Harry and Ron walking in a corridor. The boys are walking through a secret passage behind a door, and find Ginny and Dean snogging.
Music begins. A close-up on Harryís face, then on Ginny and Dean, and then again on Harryís face Ė heís looking shocked and strange.

RON
Hello!

Ginny and Dean break apart.

DEAN
Sorry, Iíll just go...

RON
Oh, didnít meant to interrupt you, you seemed very
busy...

GINNY
Whatís your point?

RON
My point? I just found my sister snogging in
public! So everyone can see, so everyone will think
you are a...

GINNY
Everyone? What are you talking about? This was a
deserted corridor until you came in! What is your
problem?

RON
I donít want people to think you are a...

GINNY
Oh, I got it! You are jealous. Just becasue you
never kissed anyone in your life Ė well, unless you
count our Auntie Muriel! Itís pathetic!

A little silence. At this point, a close-up on Harry confused face, and then a close-up on Dean, who is watching Harry confused face with a strange expression, who seem to understand...

RON
This is a lie! Just because I donít do it in public,
and...

GINNY
I would advise you to stop here, youíre just
embarrassing yourself! Harry kissed Cho, Hermione
kissed Victor Krum, Itís just you acting like it is
disgusting!

She and Dean walk away, leaving an angry Ron and a confused harry alone.

25. INT. BEDROOM, NIGHTIME.

A shot Harry is lying in his bed, still awake, with the same confused expression...

26. EXT. HOGWARTS SUNNY DAY

Trio+Ginny is walking together. Ron and Ginny refuse to look at each other.

HERMIONE
Oh, will you two stop it? Itís getting really
annoying.

GINNY
He started. Heís just jealous.

HERMIONE looks desperate. As the walk they bump into RUFUS SCRIMEGOUR, the minister of magic.

HARRY
Sorry.

He realise who he bumped into, and stop.

SCRIMEGOUR
Oh, itís okay. Will you come with me to a little
tour, Harry?

HARRY hasitates but walks with him.

27. EXT. HOGWARTS GROUNDS, LATER. SUNNY DAY.

Harry and RUFUS SCRIMEGOUR are walking together.

SCRIMEGOUR
I wanted to talk with you for a long time. You knew
that?

HARRY
No, minister.

SCRIMEGOUR
How much I tried to convince Dumbledore, but he
wonít let me. I gave up. But now I just bumped into
you!

HARRY
But why you wanted to talk with me, minister?

SCRIMEGOUR
We are in dark times, Harry. We live in a constant
fear. You canít trust anybody. Every day more people
die. We all know we can be the next.

Harry nods, donít understand where is Scrimegour leading to.

SCRIMEGOUR (CONTINUED)
In such dark times, people would like to think the
ministry is doing something. That we are winning.
Raising the moral is important.

You, Harry... You give people hope. The idea that
there is someone out there, who can, who HAVE to
destroy You-Know-Who... well, naturally itís giving
people hope. I think that in such dark times, you
should... side the ministry.

HARRY
What do you mean?

SCRIMEGOUR
Nothing too annoying, I promise. For example, if you
were seen walking in and out from the ministry... it
would give the right impression. If youíll say in
the paper that the ministry is doing a wonderful
job, then

HARRY
But youíre not doing a wonderful job.

SCRIMEGOUR
Maybe. But sometimes lying is necessary, to raise
people moral.

HARRY
So basiclly, you want me to lie to the public and to
support the minitry. I still remember last year,
minister.

Harry shows the scars on his hand. You can still see the word: LIAR in there.

HARRY
Last year, when the ministry said I was a liar,
tried to throw me out from the magical society, I
donít remember you bumping into my defence. I wonít
lie to the world. I wonít support a organization who
did everything he can to throw me out from the
magical society. To make my life a living hell.

SCRIMEGOUR
I knew you may reject. Dumbledore done a very good
job on you.

HARRY
Dumbledore is smarter then all the ministry
together. You seem cleverer then Fudge, the last
minister, so I think you can learn from his
mistakes. He tried to interfere at Hogwarts; You may
notice heís not a minister anymore, but Dumbledore
is still the headmaster.

SCRIMEGOUR
I see... You are Dumbledoreís man through and
through, right Potter?

HARRY
Yes I am. Glad I clarified it.

With that, he leaves.

28, INT. A CORRIDOR

Harry walks in a corridor, alone. He hear voice from one of the classrooms near.

SNAPE (OFF-SCREEN)
Answer me, Draco! Do you have a plan how to do it?

Harry stops and listen.

29. INT. A CLASSROOM

DRACO
Yes, I have.

SNAPE
And? What is it?

DRACO
Itís none of your business! Iím not a fool, you
know.

SNAPE
A fool? Iím trying to help you, Draco.

DRACO
Help me? You want to stop me, to make me fail, so
you can do it instead and to have all the glory! But
no, He told me to do it, and I will!

SNAPE
Draco, I am trying to help you. I talked to your
mother, she asked me to help you. I made the
Unbreakable Vow, Draco...

DRACO
I donít care, I donít need help! I donít care what
my mother told you, she thinks I am only a child and
I will never succeed! But I will prove that she is
wrong. I will do it. Iím going to be the Dark Lordís
favourite Death Eater. I donít need help from you!

And he burst out of the room from the other door. Harry is looking shocked.

30. INT STUDY HALL

Trio are sitting and talking.

HEMIONE
Harry, I donít think Snape really tried to help
Malfoy. We know he spy on the Death Eaters; I think
he simply pretended to offer him help, So Malfoy
will tell him his plan and then Dumbledore can act
to prevent it.

HARRY
But thatís proves that Malfoy is up to something,
and that he is working for Voldemort.

HERMIONE
Yes, youíre right on this one.

HARRY
So what is he doing? Perhaps Voldemort needs someone
in Hogwarts. It is easier to use someone that is
allowed to be there, then to try and enter some spy.

RON
Maybe.

HARRY (CONTINUED)
We need to follow him somehow. I know!

31. INT. COMMON ROOM

A close up on the Maurdars Map. Hundreds of dots are moving.

HARRY
See! I can see where Malfoy is! Look, he is in the
seventh floor... he walks across it... Now heís...

Harry stops. Malfoy simply disappeard from the map.

HERMIONE
He disappeard.

RON
But how?

HERMIONE
The seventh floor. What is in the seventh floor?

HARRY
The room of requierment.

32. INT. SEVENTH FLOOR

Trio runs in the corridor. Harry stand in front of a door.

HARRY
Well, let me try it.

HARRY (TO THE DOOR)
I need to see what Draco Malfoy is doing inside you.

Nothing happens.

HARRY
Iíll try again. I need you to become the place you
become for Draco Malfoy.

Nothing happens.

HERMIONE
Itís not working.

HARRY
But why?

HERMIONE
Because you donít know what you wish to find behind
that door. The Room of Requierment become what you
want it to; If you donít know what you want to see
behind you canít open it.

33. INT DUMBLEDOREíS OFFICE

Harry enter the room.

DUMBLEDORE
Iíve been expecting you. Sit down.

Harry sits down.

DUMBLEDORE
Today I got two memories to show you. The second one
is, I believe, the most important one I collected so
far. Letís see the first memory, shall we?

They both stand up.

DUMBLEDORE
After you, Harry.

Harry touch the pensieve and dive into it.

34. INT. FANCY ROOM

We see a fancy room with an old fat lady. Tom Riddle enter the room.

RIDDLE
Hello Mrs Smith.

MRS SMITH
Hello Tom! Sit down, please.

RIDDLE sit down.

MRS SMITH
Coffee?

RIDDLE
No need. Thank you.

MRS SMITH
Thank you for coming here. I got something really
special to show you.

She points on a shelf. Two boxes are in it. She takes them.

MRS SMITH
Open it, Tom.

He opens it. Inside we can see a cup, with the letter H on it.

RIDDLE
H. So this cup was...

MRS SMITH
Helga Huffelpufís, as you know very well. But this
one here...

She opens the other one. Inside we can see a big locket with the letter S on it.

MRS SMITH
Slytherinís. My most expensive treasure...

A close up on Riddleís jealous face. And for a moment, his brown eyes turns red...

35. INT DUMBLEDOREíS OFFICE.

Weíre back into the office.

DUMBLEDORE
Two days later Mrs Smith was dead. The cup and the
locket was gone.

HARRY
Voldemort! He killed her and stoled them!

DUMBLEDORE
Indeed. These items may be a key items to our story.
But now, Harry, the second memory...

He takes another memory.

DUMBLEDORE
This memory was given to me by Horace Slughorn. I
think you may find it... unusual. After you.

They enter the pensieve.

36. SLUGHORNíS OFFICE

We see a few kids there, leaving. They all have tags on their sleeves: ďTHE SLUG CLUBĒ. One boy stays behind. Tom Riddle.

SLUGHORN
Whatís that, boy?

RIDDLE
I want to ask you something.

SLUGHORN
Go on.

RIDDLE
I want to ask you what you know about... Horcruxes.

All of a sudden, mist appear out of nowhere; We canít see anything.

SLUGHORN (ECHOING VOICE)
I donít know anything about Horcruxes, and wouldínt
tell you even if I knew! Now get back to bed, and
donít ever mention them again!!

37. DUMBLEDOREíS OFFICE

We fade back to Dumbledoreís office.

HARRY
Thatís it? Whatís so important about it?

DUMLEDORE
What you just saw is only half-true. The mist is
just a trap Slughorn made. He never actually said
those words, what you heard in the mist...

HARRY
Then what actually happend?

DUMBLEDORE
This is your mission, Harry. Youíll need to bring me
the real memory. Only then we will know... Voldemort
greatest and darkest secret.

38 EXT. GROUNDS. SNOW

A very snowy day.

49. INT THE GREAT HALL

The hall is decorated for christmas.

40. SLUGHORNíS OFFICE

Harry enter the room. Slughornís inside.

SLUGHORN
Hello Harry! I was looking for you. Next Saturday
Iím doing a party, you see. Can you be there?

HARRY
Sorry, Professor. I have... Quidditch practice.

SLUGHORN
Oh, unlucky. Anyway, take this bottle

Slughorn hands Harry a bottle of wine.

SLUGHORN
I was planning to give this to Dumbledore, as a
christmas present... Well he canít miss what he
never had!

HARRY
Actually, I wanted to ask you something else. I
wonder what you know... about Horcruxes.

Slughornís face froze immidietly. He looks shocked.

SLUGHORN (SHOCKED)
Dumbledore. He showed you that memory. Right?

HARRY
Yes he did, but

SLUGHORN
Then you should know I donít know nothing about
Horcruxes.

HARRY
But I though maybe there is a bit more to this
memory...

SLUGHORN
You though? Then youíre wrong, boy. WRONG!

41. INT. STUDY HALL

Trio are sitting together in the study hall, doing homework. Ron is staring at a long essay.

RON
I hate Snape! Itís christmas vacation! But he gave
us loads of homework! Who cares about poison anyway?

HERMIONE (SACRCATIC)
Pity your stupid Half-Blood Prince canít help you
now.

HARRY
Wait a minute. The Prince did wrote something...
ďSimply slip a Bezoar to their throatĒ.

RON
A bezoar?

HERMIONE
A stone that protects you from most of the poisons.
You got one in your potion-making set.

RON
You mean... all that (He points at the essay) was
pointless? All I need is only... a stone?


HERMIONE
Well... You can put it this way.

Harry takes a stone from his set, and slowly puts it in his pocket...

42. TOWER DORMITORY. MORNING

Ron is in his bed, sleeping. We see a lot of presents near his bed. 4 boys are around him, speaking quietly.

HARRY
Ready? 1, 2, 3...

Together the four of them sing ďHappy Birthday To YouĒ (perhaps with some magical lyrics?). Ron is waking up, confused.

HARRY
Happy Birthday, mate!

RON
Oh...

Heís eyes meet the presents near his bed and he grins.

RON
Thank you!

HARRY
Letís party!

----------------------
Here's my go on King's Cross, beggining with Arry Grotter version. I didn't include much of the conversation becuase it is too damn long, but the important stuff is in, I think. I'm not so good in descriptions so they are kind of lousy (or else, copied from the book).

---------------------

The camera zooms in on Harryís head, lying face down. AndÖ

Öthe scene fades. Harry is still lying in the same position and place. Slowly Harry wakes up.

The surrounds are cloudy and misty. Harry moves nothing but his eyes, lying their gracefully.

He reaches out an arm to feel the mist he is lying on. He pushes it, it springs back a little. He suddenly notices his arm is bare and looks at the rest of his body, taken a back. Suddenly robes materialize on him out of nowhere.

He decides to stand up. The place still looks like a cloud, but as he finally is on his feet, a room start to form.

A wide-open space reveals itself, bright and clean, a hall larger by far than the Great Hall, with that clear domed glass ceiling. It is quite empty. Suddenly Harry hears a baby crying. It sounds distorted and unnatural. He slowly approach the source of the noise.

It has the form of a small, naked child, curled on the ground, its skin raw and rough, flayed-looking, and it lay shuddering under a seat where it had been left, unwanted, stuffed out of sight, struggling for breath. Harry gets near it, afraid to touch, and then -

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
You cannot help it.

Harry jumps, suprised. Albus Dumbledore approaches him, his hand healthy again, a big smile on his face.

HARRY POTTER
But... you're dead.

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
Yes, I am dead.

HARRY POTTER
So... am I dead too?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
This is the question, isn't it? On the whole, I think no.

Harry looks astonished.

HARRY POTTER
But I was hit by a killing curse. I should have died.

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
You should have died, yes. However, it appears that there are... special circumstances that kept you alive.

HARRY POTTER
What are they?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
But you already know, don't you? Think about what Voldemort done, in a deserted muggle graveyard, three years ago.

HARRY POTTER
He took my blood.

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
Precisely! Your blood in his veins, Harry, Lily protection inside both of you! While this protection lives inside his body, you cannot die. He tethered you to live while he lives!

HARRY POTTER
I live... while he lives? But then, the Horcrux inside me - how we could get rid of it, if I can't die?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
He already took care of it. The Horcrux inside you was never protected, Harry, so he wasn't protected - and he was destroyed when you was hit by a killing curse.

Harry looks relieved.

HARRY POTTER
Where are we?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
Good gracious, I have no idea. I was about to ask you. This is, as they say - your party. Where do you think we are?

HARRY POTTER
It looks like... King's Cross station, only much cleaner, and it's empty, and there's no trains, as far as I can see.

A moment of hesitation, and then...

HARRY POTTER
I'm not dead, you say? Then I have to go back, do I?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
This is your choice, Harry. If you want, you can... board a train.

HARRY POTTER
And where it will take me?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
On.

HARRY POTTER
But... you want me to go back, don't you?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
I think that if you go back, there is a chance Lord Voldemort will be finished for good. I cannot promise it, but I know this, Harry; If you go back, he has much more to fear about coming back here then you have.

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE (Continued)
By returning, you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed, fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, they we saw good-bye for the present.

Harry nods.

HARRY POTTER
Tell me one last thing. Is it real, or is it happening inside my head?

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?

-------------------

That's it, sorry for the long post.
