Re: Fan Scripts: Script your own version of Harry Potter

The Traitor:    


  INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KITCHEN-AFTERNOON-NEXT DAY

The scene cuts to Harry slamming the paper on the kitchen table. Ron and Hermione both grab it and read the headline.

HERMIONE
No!

RON
This isn’t good.

HERMIONE
And he has access to Dumbledore’s study…which means…I’ll be back!

She runs out of the kitchen quickly. Harry picks up the paper and looks down at it.

HARRY
Looks like he’s appointed the Carrows as new teachers… They were on top of the tower the night Dumbledore died.

RON
Blimey.

HARRY
And there are more Death Eaters watching the house. They must know we’re here…

RON
Yeah but don’t you think they’d be able to get in already if Snape told them how?

HARRY
You’re right…

BOOM a body falls onto the table. Harry and Ron jump back as they realize its Mundungus Fletcher and standing on him is Kreacher.

KREACHER
Kreacher has returned with the thief Mundungus Fletcher, Master.

Mundungus tries to pull out his wand but Kreacher kicks it out of his hand and starts to slap him continuously in the face.

HARRY
That’s enough Kreacher.

KREACHER
Can I hit him once more please Master?

Harry looks over at Ron who is laughing and Harry shrugs.

HARRY
Sure.

Kreacher slaps Mundungus once more and jumps off of him.

RON
That was brilliant.

HARRY
Get up….I said get up!

Harry points his wand at Mundungus who quickly jumps off the table and faces him.

MUNDUNGUS
Listen…I’m sorry about the rescue okay. I panicked and You-Know-Who was coming flying at me and I never volunteered to die for you….

HARRY
I’m not interested in why you ran out on Mad-Eye.

MUNDUNGUS
Then why the ‘ell am I being ‘unted down by ‘ouse-elves?

HARRY
Why were you here?

MUNDUNGUS
What?

HARRY
It’s obvious the house had been rummaged through and thanks to Kreacher we found out it was you. Why were you taking things from here?

MUNDUNGUS
Well Sirius never cared about any of this junk…

BAM a potatoe hits Mundungus in the head. The camera pans over to show that it was Kreacher who threw it.

KREACHER
How dare you call Master’s possessions junk!

HARRY
You know I really don’t care what else you took but there was this one item…a locket….

MUNDUNGUS
Yeah…would’ve gotten a pretty penny from that woman didn’t threaten me.

HARRY
Woman?

MUNDUNGUS
Yeah. I was selling in Diagon Alley and she come up to me asking is I had a license for trading magical artifacts. She was gonna fine me, but took a fancy to the locket and told me she’d take it and let me off that time.

HARRY
Who was it?

MUNDUNGUS
Dunno…some Ministry hag…she sorta looked like a toad.

Harry and Ron’s eyes both widen when he says this. T hey both look at each other.

HARRY and RON
Umbridge.

BOOM Mundungus is flown back across the room. We see Hermione with her wand pointed at him.

RON
Oh…there you are…

HERMIONE
I see Kreacher found the traitor.

HARRY
Yeah….

Harry walks over to him and looks down and see’s Mundungus is completely knocked out.

RON
You knocked him out.

HERMIONE
Sorry…when I saw him I just…well…anyway..did you find out anything?

HARRY
Yeah.

HERMIONE
Well…where is the locket?

HARRY
Umbridge has it.

HERMIONE
No….

HARRY
She took it from him when he was selling Sirius’s things in Diagon Ally.

HERMIONE
This is just….just….

RON
Where were you off to anyway? You just ran out of here.

HERMIONE
Phineas Nigellus.

RON
What about him?

HERMIONE
Snape could send Phineas to look inside this house for him. So I moved his portrait into that enchanted bag so he won’t be able to see anything.

RON
Good thinking!

HERMIONE
Thank you…so what are we going to do about Umbridge and the locket.

HARRY
There’s only one thing we can do….go and get it.

Hermione and Ron cast looks at each other and we hear a rumble. Everyone turns around to see Kreacher pulling Mundungus by the leg into his cupboard.

HARRY
Kreacher…what are you doing?

KREACHER
Kreacher is just going to have a little…word…with the traitor Fletcher master.

Kreacher smiles at Harry before he pulls Mundungus into the room and closes the door.
  


Magic is Might:    


  The scene cuts to a sweeping shot of LONDON. The camera then pans down into a small Muggle Coffee Shop. It passes through the window and goes to a table where Harry, Ron, and Hermione are sitting. Hermione and Ron both are dressed very differently with wigs and so is Harry (Who has on a mustache aswell as Ron.) They sitting in the back of the nearly empty diner.

INT. MUGGLE BAR-MIDDAY

HERMIONE
I can’t believe you talked me into doing this Harry…this is crazy.

HARRY
What other choice do we have Hermione? We’ve staked out the Ministry for days…we’re as ready as we’ll ever be.

HERMIONE
Well I’ve perfected the disillusionment charm so we will blend in with all our surroundings. We must be careful though…they’re bound to be on the lookout for intruders….every little detail matters. Do we have to go over the plan again?

HARRY
No…You and Ron will use the disillusionment charm and wait patiently at the exit for me. I’ll take my cloak…retreat the locket…and viola.

HERMIONE
It’s not that simple Harry….

HARRY
It’ll be fine Hermione…trust me.

RON
So how are we getting in again?

HERMIONE
Honestly Ron….

INT. ALLEYWAY- MINISTRY OF MAGIC ENTRANCE-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a shot of a tiny alleyway. The camera slowly pans down the wall and we can see Hermione and Ron are blending in with their surroundings. We see a shot of Harry under his invisibility cloak. They stand there silently as SWOOSH MAFALDA HOPKIRK appears in the alley. She walks past them not seeing them and humming to herself. Hermione stops from her hiding place and points her wand at Mafalda. Mafalda pauses and then falls onto the ground unconscious.

HERMIONE
Quick!

Ron opens her purse and pulls out three TOKENS that have M.O.M. written on them. He hands one to Harry and Hermione and Ron and Harry proceed to pull Mafalda into a small room. Closing the door behind her and locking it.

RON
Ready?

INT. MINISTRY OF MAGIC ENTRANCE BATHROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to them following a wizard into the bathrooms. Hermione has her hand covering her eyes and is being lead by Ron. They quickly run in and stand still as the door closes. The man turns around and looks straight at them but doesn’t see them. He shrugs and walks into a stall.

RON
Now what?

HERMIONE
We go into the stalls I think.

The trio stuff themselves into one cubicle.

HERMIONE
Now remember…if by chance this entrance cancels out the spells hopefully…and this is a big chance…our disguises will hold up long enough for us to hide and reapply it. Now Harry keep your cloak around you tight. We’re not sure if there’s someone watching and it’ll be strange to see a pair of legs just flying out.

HARRY
Let’s just do this Hermione.

HERMIONE
Harry we have to be….

She stops talking as she hears the door close. Then they hear a flush and she begins talking again.

HERMIONE
Harry….

HARRY
We’ll be fine.

She sighs as we see Harry (From under the Invisibility Cloak) step into the toilet. He reaches up and pulls the string and SWOOSH the bottom of the toilet opens and Harry is now flying down a chute. We see him curl up, wrapping the cloak tightly around him, and SWOOSH he appears in a fireplace. Harry carefully gets up and steps to the side. SWOOSH we see Ron land in the fireplace seconds later and still blending in with his surrounding. Soon after Hermione appears.

HERMIONE
I can’t believe the spells still…..

She stops as she looks out into the Atrium.

INT. MINISTRY OF MAGIC-ATRIUM-MOMENTS LATER

The camera pans up to show the ATRIUM. Where the golden fountain once was now a gigantic statue made of black stone. The statue is of a wizard and witch sitting on a thrown made of carvings of hundreds of humans wth ugly, twisted faces. Engraved in foot-high letters at the base of the statue were the words ‘MAGIC IS MIGHT’..


HERMIONE
That’s just…just….

SWOOSH someone else appears in the fireplace. We see that it is Mr. Weasley. Ron in all his excitement yells out.

RON
Dad!

Mr. Weasley pauses and looks around. He stares straight at Ron but can’t see him.

MR. WEASLEY
Is someone there?

He stands curiously still for a moment but shrugs and continues to walk. The camera follows Aurther into the lift. We see Harry slip in next to him before the lift closes.

INT. LIFT-MINISTRY OF MAGIC-MOMENTS LATER

As the lift begins to move Mr. Weasley looks around and notices the other wizards in looking deeply at him. Harry notices one of the wizards is carrying a PAMPHLET and on the pamphlet is a picture of Harry with the writings ‘UNDESIRABLE NUMBER ONE’ across it moving and flashing. The lifts stops and opens. Everyone except Arthur (and Harry) leave. As they part ways we see in a distance a figure in all pink walking towards the lift. We see Mr. Weasley tense up as the camera only show the pink shoes the lady is wearing walking towards them. The camera slowly pans up until we reveal that it is DOLORES UMBRIDGE. She gives a small smile as she see’s Arthur standing alone in the lift and she steps in. The lift door closes and they begin to move.

UMBRIDGE
Good evening, Arthur.

MR. WEASLEY
Dolores.

UMBRIDGE
Nice day for registration isn’t it? Ten people today…and one of them the wife of a Ministry employee. Tut, tut…

Long pause.

UMBRIDGE
So have you heard anything from Undesirable Number One Arthur.

MR. WEASLEY
You think I’d tell you if I did?

UMBRIDGE
Of course not…shame…your family being pureblood yet still seen as a disgrace to the wizarding community. I could put in a good word for you with the Minister if you….say…have any ideas to the wherabouts to Undesirable…

MR. WEASLEY
We have nothing to say to each other Dolores.

UMBRIDGE
Have it your way.

The lift stops and opens. We see YAXLEY standing down the hall talking to someone else from the Ministry.

UMBRIDGE
Ah Minister! I’d like to have a word with you…

She walks out of the lift and BAM runs into someone who was walking in past. The notepad she was carrying falls and she reaches down to pick it up.

UMBRIDGE
Watch where you’re going next time you imbosile!

As she leans over the LOCKET falls out from underneath her coat. She is wearing it around her neck and we see Harry’s eyes widen.

HARRY
The locket….

We see Mr. Weasley give a strange look as Yaxley rushes over to help Umbridge. Harry goes to walk out of the lift but Mr. Weasley blocks his way with his arm as the lift closes and begins to move again. Harry stands frozen.

MR. WEASLEY
I knew I heard Ron’s voice when I came to work…thought I was going insane. I know for a fact I just heard your voice Harry.

HARRY
Mr. Weasley…

MR. WEASLEY
Shhh! Now I don’t know why you’re here Harry and I know you’re sure of the massive risk and danger you’ve put yourself into coming here. Is Hermione here aswell?


HARRY
Yes…

MR. WEASLEY
Yes well…while I’m shocked that you three would do something so stupid….I’m glad to hear you’re alright and…well…I trust you Harry and if it was worth you three coming to the Ministry then it must be important. If there’s anything I can do to help….

HARRY
There is sir….could you take me to where Umbridge is going.

MR. WEASLEY
Umbridge? Harry….are you sure?

HARRY
Never been more sure of anything in my life.

INT. DEPARTMENT OF MYSTERIES-HALLWAY-MOMENTS LATER

DING- We hear the lift stop and open and we see Mr. Weasley walk out of the lift. He looks around to make sure he’s alone. He points towards the door where the courtroom is and says nothing. We see Harry (Under the cloak) walk slowly towards the courtroom. As he gets closer he starts to shiver and we see the air come from his mouth. Harry walks into the waiting room that’s right outside of the courtroom and his mouth drops open at the sight.

INT. WAITING ROOM-MINISTRY OF MAGIC-MOMENTS LATER

We see that the room is full of DEMENTORS surrounding a group of terrified people standing in front of the courtroom door. Harry moves slowly towards the door. We see Dementors turn in his direction as if they sense his presence. From inside the courtroom we hear a loud SCREAM and the door flies open. SWOOSH a man is thrown out of it. 2 Dementors quickly fly and grab him. They both hold him up in the air as Umbridge walks slowly out of the door.

REGISTRY VICTIM
No, No, I’m half blood I tell you! My father was a wizard!

UMBRIDGE
This is your final warning. If you struggle, you will be subjected to the Dementor’s kiss.

The man stops screaming and stares at her, tears streaming from his eyes.

UMBRIDGE
Take him away.

The Dementors quickly fly away carrying the man with them. Everyone in the waiting room watches as he is carried away and Umbridge clears her voice.

UMBRIDGE
Next…Mary Cattermole.

The camera pans over to the lady who slowly walks up to Umbridge. Umbridge turns to walk into the courtroom and the lady follows. Harry quickly glides in after her as the door closes.

INT. COURTROOM-MINISTRY OF MAGIC-MOMENTS LATER

As Harry walks into the room he looks up and notices more Dementors circling slowly across the ceiling looking down on them. We see Umbridge take a seat behind a high raised platform, with Yaxley next to her. Harry notices the locket on her neck.

UMBRIDGE
You are Mary Elizabeth Cattermole?

MARY
Yes.

UMBRIDGE
Married to Reginal Cattermole of the Magical Maintenance Department? Mother to Maisie, Ellie, and Alfred Cattermole?

Tears start to fall down her face.

MARY
Yes and they’re frightened, they think I might not come home….

YAXLEY
Spare us. The brats of Mudbloods do not stir our sympathies.

Harry continues to slowly walk towards Umbridge and he notices a tiny Cat Patronus pacing in front of the platform. As Harry tries to walk past it FLASH of light happens and he pauses. Umbridge and Yaxley both stand up quickly.

YAXLEY
What is it?

UMBRIDGE
Someone else is here….I put a charm up to cancel out any spell just in case someone tried to sneak in.

YAXLEY
Well…where are they Umbridge?

Harry slowly starts to back away and is stopped by something. His eyes widen in fear until he hears a voice.

RON
Shhh it’s us.

UMBRIDGE
Maybe this will help….

She pulls out of her back Mad-Eye Moody’s EYE. She puts it in front of her eyes and we see Harry standing there through it.

UMBRIDGE
You!

RON and HERMIONE
STUPIFY!!!!

BOOM the spells fly out knocking both Umbridge and Yaxley back and out. We see Umbridge’s Cat Patronus vanish.

HARRY
ACCIO LOCKET AND EYE!

SWOOSH the locket and Mad Eye's eye flies off of Umbridge’s neck and into Harry’s hand. The dementors start to fly swiftly around the room. 2 of them fly down and start to ‘soul suck’ Umbridge and Yaxley. Mary screams and runs out of the courtroom.

HARRY
What are you two doing here?

RON
We followed you.

HERMIONE
We need to get out of here before they get up. They’ll have all the entrances sealed!

They turn and dozens of Dementors block their way and the Dementors on the ceiling begin to fly down.

HARRY
Help guys. EXPECTO PATRONUM!

BOOM Harry’s Patronus quicly forms a SHILED blocking the dementors from coming down on them.

RON
EXPECTO PATRONUM!

Ron’s Terrier Patronus barks and runs quickly into the Dementors blocking the door shoving them out the way. Hermione takes the locket from Harry and mutters a spell. A duplicate is made and she points her wand and the duplicate flies back around Umbridge’s neck. Then the three of them run through the path that Ron’s patronus made.

INT. HALLWAY-MINISTRY OF MAGIC-MOMENTS LATER

As the trio run down the hall we see Dementors flying around in confusion and the people who were in the waiting room are gone. We see Mr. Weasley standing near the end of the hall near the lift. Wand at the ready.

HARRY
Get in Mr. Weasley!

INT. LIFT-MINISTRY OF MAGIC-MOMENTS LATER

Mr. Weasley steps into the lift and closes it quickly and it begins to move. Harry removes his Cloak.

MR. WEASLEY
What did you do? Harry are you crazy?!?!

HARRY
We should be safe until Yaxley and Umbridge are revived.

MR. WEASLEY
We?

RON
Hey Dad.

HERMIONE
Mr. Weasley.

MR. WEASLEY
Ron…Hermione…have they been here this whole time?

HARRY
Appareantly…even I didn’t know.



MR. WEASLEY
Good disguises kids…now Harry put the cloak on we’re almost at the Atrim. Get out of here as quick as you can!

Harry throws the clock over himself just as the lift opens. They walk out into the Atrium and there’s a mass panic. Dementors are flying everywhere and we see Ministry officials sealing off the fireplaces.

MR. WEASLEY
Oh no….

HERMIONE
Harry quick!

They begin to quickly run towards one of the last available fireplaces. A wizard runs up to the fireplace and points his wand in preparation to seal it.

HERMIONE
NO!

Hermione points here wand at the ‘MAGIC IS MIGHT’ sign and BOOM it is lifted up.

HERMIONE
GET DOWN!

BOOM the sign is quickly flown across the Atrium and BAM slams in front of the wizard knocking him back and blocking his access to the fireplace. Harry’s cloak is thrown off as we see the ‘seat’ that the wizard was on crumble and the large statue crashes onto the floor. Everyone in the Atrim is distracted by this and they all look up to where the statue once was. SWOOSH a fog fills the Atrium and we see Ron and Hermione’s disguises slowly fade away. Harry grabs his cloak and the trio quickly launch into the fireplace. CRASH a black fog quickly appears in front of where the statue stood and we see Yaxley, furious, appear there. He looks around frantically as the flames slowly rise to take the trio away. He notices them and quickly apparates into a cloud of dust and flies towards the fireplace and the trio disappears.

INT. MINISTRY OF MAGIC ENTRANCE BATHROOM-MOMENTS LATER

SWOOSH all three of them fly out of the toilet. They quickly run out of the stall. They grab each others hand as we see the black smoke quickly fly out of the toilet and begins to surround them. SWOOSH they begin to apparate and are gone as Yaxley fully forms.
  


Intruder in Grimmauld Place:    


  EXT. APPARATION STREAM

We hear the trio scream as they are apparating through space and BAM.

EXT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-FRONT STEPS-MOMENTS LATER

SWOOSH they appear on the top step of Grimmauld Place. They stand still as they look around and notice there are no Death Eaters.

RON
Where do you think they’ve gone.

HARRY
I bet every Death Eater is at the Ministry by now.

Hermione, stricken with fear, jumps into Ron’s arms and begins to cry.

HERMIONE
We almost didn’t make it. Harry do you have any idea…!

HARRY
I know. I’m…glad you 2 followed me..that original plan wasn’t so great after all huh?

RON
Come on…let’s go inside…you got the locket?

HARRY
Yeah…

Harry holds up the locket and stares at it. He then places it around his neck.

HARRY
It should be safe right here….

They open the door and walk in.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KITCHEN-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to the trio walking into the kitchen. Harry and Ron both sit down with a sigh of relief. Hermione, still shaking, paces.

HERMIONE
I can’t believe we did that…how did I possibly let you talk me into it…

HARRY
We got the locket though Hermione.


HERMIONE
Yes and barely made it with our lives. Wonder if they think your father helped us Ron…then what?

RON
You’re right….

HARRY
No one saw him with us Hermione….

HERMIONE
And smooth letting him hear you Harry!

HARRY
Not now Hermione please! Let’s just…rest….

THUMP. We hear a loud noise and everyone looks up at the ceiling.

HERMIONE
What was that?

HARRY
Maybe Kreacher digging through things again.

SWOOSH Kreacher appears.

KREACHER
You called Master?

RON
Where…were you….

KREACHER
Kreacher was out looking for ingredients to make Kreachers special stew tonight…yes….

HARRY
Wait…if you just got here then….

Hermione quickly pulls out her wand.

HERMIONE
Homenum revelio!

There is a sweeping wind that flies out of the kitchen door.


HERMIONE
Harry…someone’s here!

Harry and Ron both jump up and pull out their wands.

RON
How is that possible? You think it’s Lupin.

Harry walks towards the kitchen door.

HERMIONE
Harry please!

HARRY
Show yourself!

Harry walks into the hallway and looks up the flight of stairs.

HARRY
Whoever is here...show yourself now!

THUD. THUD. THUD. We hear footsteps walking slowly down the stairs. Harry raises his wand higher. We see a HAND gliding down the rails and then the figure stands on the top of the stairs in the shadow.

HARRY
SHOW YOURSELF!

The figure steps into the light and we see that it is SNAPE who is carrying a BAG over his shoulder.

HARRY
SNAPE!

BAM a spell flies out of Harry’s wand but misses Snape.

SNAPE
Potter!

Harry runs into the kitchen and Snape appears in the doorway seconds later.

HARRY
CRUCIO!

The spell flies out but misses and hits the door. Hermione moves her wand and the TABLE flies towards Snape. BOOM the table explodes into pieces as Snape blasts it. Ron throws a spell but Snape blocks it.

SNAPE
Don’t be foolish!

HARRY
MURDERER!

Harry lunges forward at Snape. Hermione and Ron try to grab his arm but miss him. Snape holds up the bag as Harry grabs for him and lets go as Harry grabs it and pushes Harry shoves the bag back on Snape knocking him down. Harry drops the bag and points his wand at Snape.

HARRY
You’re going to pay for what you did!

SNAPE
Am I Potter?

Harry lets out a scream of rage but before he can do anything we see Hermione grab him and SWOOSH they apparate.

INT. APPARATION STREAM-MOMENTS LATER

We hear Harry screaming in rage as He and Hermione move quickly through the stream until BAM they land in the middle of the woods. We see Ron standing next to a tree.

EXT. WOODS-MOMENTS LATER

HARRY
WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!?!

HERMIONE
Harry…

HARRY
I HAD HIM HERMIONE…I COULD’VE KILLED HIM!

HERMIONE
Could you Harry? Snape is more skilled then all of us do you think he would’ve let you just kill him! You saw how he blocked all our spells.

HARRY
But Hermione…

HERMIONE
Grimmauld Place isn’t safe anymore Harry. I brought us someone Snape won’t be able to find us. We got the locket…let’s focus on the mission before revenge.

HARRY
BUT I COULD’VE KILLED HIM HERMIONE.

HERMIONE
Harry….

HARRY
HE WAS RIGHT THERE!!!

HERMIONE
Give me the locket!

HARRY
What?

HERMIONE
The locket Harry. Give it to me!

Harry takes off the locket and hands it to Hermione.

HERMIONE
Better?

HARRY
Ye…yeah…actually….it was odd. My anger was….magnified…

HERMIONE
I thought so. I’ve seen you angry before Harry but….

HARRY
Every spell I threw at him didn’t work properly. Do you think….

HERMIONE
This locket is dark magic Harry…we don’t know how it’ll affect us…Ron…could you….

Ron walks up and takes the locket. He stares at it and we here a tiny thud…as if a heart is beating. He lowers the locket and see’s Hermione comforting Harry still and we see a look of curiousity grow on Ron’s face.



HERMIONE
We’ll take turns wearing the locket until we figure out how to destroy it. I have my bag and I’m sure everything we’ll need out here is in it. I’m going to set up enchantments around to make sure we’re safe…Ron….

RON
Yeah….

HERMIONE
If you look through the bag you should be able to find a tent. Could you put it up for me?

RON
Sure….

HERMIONE
Harry you rest alright?

She smiles at him and sets off to put up enchantments. Ron stares at Harry for a moment.

HARRY
You alright Ron?

RON
Yeah…just…gonna put the tent up….

He puts the locket around his neck and turns away from Harry and the scene fades.

INT.-WOODS- TENT-EVENING

The scene fades back on a shot of the locket. The camera slowly pulls back and we see Ron’s face. As the camera moves further back we see Ron sitting inside of the tent staring at the locket in his hands. The camera pans over to show Harry laying down staring into the roof of the ceiling.

HERMIONE
Well I’ve done all I can do with putting up protective enchantments. At the very least, we should know they’re coming.

HARRY
Thanks Hemione….hopefully they’re good enough to keep out Volde….

RON
Don’t say the name!

Hermione and Harry both glance at Ron curiously.

HERMIONE
Don’t be silly Ron…fear of a name….

RON
It just….it feels like a jinx or something. Can’t we call him You-Know-Who…please?

HARRY
I reckon so.

HERMIONE
Well I’ll make us some tea then. I have enough food packed for about a week. Afterwards…..

HARRY
We’ll manage Hermione.

RON
So how are we supposed to destroy this thing?

HARRY
Dunno.

RON
Any ideas where the other’s may be?

HARRY
Ron you already know I have no clue. Dumbledore didn’t really tell me much about Vold…

RON
Harry!

HARRY
Sorry…You-Know-Who’s Horcruxes. They can be anywhere for all I know. He spent years in Albania…maybe he hid one there.

RON
Yeah, let’s go to Albania. Shouldn’t take more than an afternoon to search an entire country.

HARRY
Well I know the snake is a Horcrux and it’s with Vol…

RON
Didn’t I ask you to stop saying that?

HARRY
Fine! The snake is usually with You-Know-Who…happy?

RON
Not particularly.

HARRY
I have a feeling something is hidden at Hogwarts.

HERMIONE
Hogwarts Harry? If a Horcrux were at Hogwarts don’t you think Dumbledore would’ve found it?

HARRY
Well what else do we have? Hogwarts was his home and what better place than to hide something important than your home?

RON
This isn’t you we’re talking about Harry…I’m sure You-Know-Who didn’t consider Hogwarts home…

HARRY
You’re wrong.

Ron frowns at Harry and Hermione hands the two of them cups of tea.

HARRY
Thanks.

HERMIONE
Now there must be someplace we can look.

HARRY
The Orphanage. Vol…

RON
HARRY!

HARRY
YOU-KNOW-WHO THEN! Dumbledore showed me a memory last year of him when he was young. Maybe….

HERMIONE
That’s brilliant Harry!

EXT. LONDON-LIBARARY-NIGHT

We see a shot of a LIBARARY in LONDON.

INT. LONDON-LIBRARY-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to the inside of the libarary and SWOOSH we see the trio Apparate inside. The scene cuts to a shot of Hermione looking through a filing cabinet using her wand as a light. She pulls out a document and sits it down on a table and begins to read.

HERMIONE
Oh no….

HARRY
What is it.

HERMIONE
The Orphanage…it was destroyed years ago.

RON
Great….

HARRY
Well I don’t’ see you coming up with any ideas.

HERMIONE
Please you two! Not now…

RON
So what are we supposed to do?

HARRY
Just keep looking…that’s all we can do isn’t it?
  


Defense Against the Dark Arts:    


  Ron and Harry stare at each other a moment as we see the scene slowly fade into rain. CRASH we see thunder flash over a body of WATER as the camera pans up and we see HOGWARTS in the distance. The camera passes through a window and into the DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS CLASSROOM.

INT. HOGWARTS-DEFENSE AGAINST THE DARK ARTS-MIDDAY

AMYCUS CARROW is standing in front of the class.

AMYCUS
Now today class we will be learning about the Unforgivable Curses.

STUDENT
Excuse me sir…but we learned about those 4th year….

AMYCUS
Silence! I would hope 7th year students would know about them but how many of you have seen them in effect. Not many. You…..come here….

He points at the student who just spoke up. The student hesitates and slowly walks up in front of the class.

AMYCUS
You’re a mudblood am I correct?

STUDENT
That’s not an appropriate term sir.

AMYCUS
No..no..I guess not…Goyle!

GOYLE
Yes sir?

AMYCUS
I want you to show the class the effects of the Cruciatus Curse.

The camera pans to Neville who is clearly angry as Goyle walks up to the front of the class.

GOYLE
What do you want me to perform it on?

AMYCUS
What…oh no dear boy…who..and this filthy mudblood looks like a good candidate…

NEVILLE
NO!

Neville quickly jumps up.

NEVILLE
That is inhumane!

AMYCUS
Sit down Mr. Longbottom!

NEVILLE
No!

Amycus laughs and gives a nod at Goyle

GOYLE
CRUCIO!

The student falls to the ground screaming out in pain.

AMYCUS
Good boy Goyle…oh you’re so much like your father….

GOYLE
Thank you sir….

The student continues to role around in pain as Goyle continues to perform the spell on him.


NEVILLE
STOP IT!

AMYCUS
Speak out of line again and you’ll be sent to detention Longbottom!

NEVILLE
I don’t care!

AMYCUS
You’re a pureblood! Filthy half breeds like this deserve nothing more….

NEVILLE
They have every right as we do! If I remember correctly isn’t your precious master a half blood himself!

AMYCUS
You watch your tongue!

BAM Neville is hit with a spell and is thrown back across the room. Amycus quickly storms towards him, grabbing him by the his robes and looking down on him.

AMYCUS
Do you really want to play the hero Mr. Longbottom? Do you have any idea who you’re dealing with?

NEVILLE
Do you?

Amycus glares down at Neville for a moment and then smiles.

AMYCUS
Follow me to the front of the class.

He let’s go of Neville and walks towards the class.

AMYCUS
You can take a seat Goyle. Great work! Longbottom…front of the class…NOW!

Neville slowly walks to the front of the class. He glances down at the student who is still whimpering on the floor.

AMYCUS
Now Longbottom I think it’s best if you participate in today’s lesson. Practice the Crucatus curse on this Mudblood

NEVILLE
No.

AMYCUS
NOW LONGBOTTOM!

NEVILLE
I said no…I…I won’t do it…..

Amycus walks up to Neville.

AMYCUS
Pity…

Amycus pulls out a knife and SWOOSH slashes it across Neville’s cheek. Neville falls to the ground and screams out in pain. Amycus puts the knife back into his robes and faces the class.

AMYCUS
Now does anyone else want to end up like Mr. Longbottom here?

The camera pans down to show Neville looking up at Amycus, holding his cheek as we see blood trickle through his fingers. We see reaction shots from students in the classroom..

INT. HOGWARTS-COURTYARD-EVENING

The scene fades to a shot of ‘THE QUIBBLER’ with the headline ‘THE CHOSEN ONE: WHAT ARE HIS PLANS TO DEFEAT THE DARK LORD?’ We pan back to show students walking away reading them. The camera pans over to show Luna and Ginny handing out ‘The Quibbler’ to Hogwarts students.

LUNA
Free copies of ‘The Quibbler’…the only paper brave enough to report the truth about You-Know-Who!

GINNY
Don’t believe everything you read….especially things in ‘The Daily Prophet’

We see McGonagall walk towards them with a worried look in her eyes.

MCGONAGALL
And what do you two think you’re doing?

GINNY
We have to keep everyone’s spirits up Professor. The Prophet is dragging Harry’s name through the mud…

LUNA
And with him missing people don’t know what to think. My dad wants to keep everyone’s spirits up and we want to help.

MCGONAGALL
As admirable as this is…you two have no idea the trouble you can get into….

GINNY
I don’t care. If there’s anything I can do to help Harry….

MCGONAGALL
Don’t be foolish. You know who runs the school now and the punishment this could get you….

LUNA
Dumbledore would want us to keep fighting Professor.

She looks at them and sighs. She looks up and notices Neville walking towards them with a huge bandage on his cheek.

MCGONAGALL
Longbottom?

Ginny and Luna turn around and gasp.

GINNY
Neville! What happened?

MCGONAGALL
Who did this to you my dear boy?

NEVILLE
Amycus Carrow.

MCGONAGALL
The nerve…you see what I mean girls…I shall take this matter to the headmaster at once!

GINNY
He’s not going to do anything about it.

MCGONAGALL
We’ll see about that.

She storms away as Neville has a seat. Ginny and Luna both sit next to him and comfort him.

NEVILLE
He was having us use the cruciatus curse on a student…I couldn’t let him….

LUNA
That was a brave thing you did Neville. Standing up to him like that.

The camera pans over to show Alecto Carrow snatching ‘The Quibbler’ from one of the younger students hands. She yells something at him and he points towards Luna. Alecto looks over at Luna and walks quickly towards her.

ALECTO
Are you responsible for this Lovegood!

LUNA
Yes…everyone deserves the truth.

BAM Luna is slapped across the face. Ginny and Neville quickly jump in front of her and pull out there wands.

ALECTO
The Dark Lord will hear about this…and if your father doesn’t stop printing this filth soon….

GINNY
Then what?

Alecto laughs.

ALECTO
You kids really have no idea what you’re dealing with.

She begins to walk away and pauses. She pulls out her wand and points in at the trio.

ALECTO
Accio!

SWOOSH all the newspapers go flying towards her and FLASH they all go up into flames and she walks off laughing as burnt newspaper debris rains down over the courtyard.

NEVILLE
So what are we going to do now?

LUNA
Oh I have more copies in my room…

GINNY
I think we should be more silent about this. Go underground…like we did a few years ago.

NEVILLE
You’re right…no one else needs to be hurt. Harry would know what to do…I just wish we knew where they were. I wish we could help.

Ginny’s eyes widen and she turns to Neville and Luna.

GINNY
You know what…I think we can. The Sword of Gryffindor.

NEVILLE
What about it.

GINNY
Follow me.

INT. HOGWARTS-EMPTY CLASSROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Ginny, Luna, and Neville walking into an empty classroom. Ginny closes the door behind them.

GINNY
What I’m about to tell you…and ask you to do…can get us into a lot of trouble.

NEVILLE
After all these years I’m used to it.

GINNY
Dumbledore left Harry the sword of Gryffindor in his will.

NEVILLE
Isn’t that in the headmaster’s office?

GINNY
Yes…and that’s the trick. I think we should steal it for him…keep it safe.

NEVILLE
How do you expect to break into Snape’s office?

LUNA
We don’t know the password.

GINNY
We could apparate there directly.

NEVILLE
But you can’t apparate on Hogwarts grounds. You know that Ginny.

GINNY
We can’t…but I know someone who can.

INT. HOGWARTS-HALLWAY-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a shot of a huge portrait of a yellow pear. The camera pans back to show Ginny standing in front of it. She looks to her left and we see Neville at the opposite end of the hallway keeping watch. She looks to her right and Luna is doing the same. The reaches out a finger and tickles the pear. It starts to giggle and the portrait slowly moves forward revealing a DOOR behind it. Ginny sighs and walks into the door.

INT. HOGWARTS-KITCHENS-MOMENTS LATER

Ginny walks into HOGWARTS KITCHEN and the camera pans over to show HOUSELVES running around preparing dishes and cleaning. She walks slowly through the kitchen and catches a glimpse of a FEMALE HOUSELF obviously drunk stumbling around. She continues to look around until she spots Dobby folding some tablecloths.

GINNY
Dobby.

Dobby looks up at Ginny and a huge smile rises on his face.

GINNY
Ginny Weasley ma’am.

He bows at her.

DOBBY
What brings you to the kitchens? Is anything wrong….?

GINNY
I need your help Dobby…Harry…needs your help. I know how loyal you are to him….

DOBBY
Why I’d do anything for Harry Potter. Anything. He’s the reason Dobby is free.

GINNY
I need you to help me break into the headmasters office.

Dobby looks up at her curiously.

INT. HOGWARTS-SNAPES OFFICE-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a shot of the empty Headmaster’s Office. SWOOSH Ginny and Dobby appear in the middle of the office.

GINNY
Right…here’s hoping Neville and Luna’s distraction keep Snape away long enough.

She starts to look around the office for the sword. Dobby notices it first.

DOBBY
There it is young Weasley! On the wall…there!

GINNY
Great Dobby

She pulls out her wand

GINNY
ACCIO GRYFFINDOR SWORD!!

SMASH the glass of the case shatters everywhere as the sword comes flying at them. Ginny quicky grabs it by the handle and looks at it.

GINNY
Great…lets go….

BAM the door to the office flies open and in walks Snape holding onto Neville and Luna, both looking distraught.

SNAPE
And what exactly do you think you’re doing?

Ginny drops her head in defeat, Dobby clinches his fist, and Snape gives a small smile as the camera pans away out of the window and through the clouds.
  


The Goblins Revenge:    


  SWOOSH there is a wide shot of the forest and it is now fall. Leaves are falling everywhere as the camera zooms in on the tent.

INT. WOODS-TENT-NIGHT

The scene cuts to the trio sitting around a table. There are mushrooms and tiny fish on their plates. Ron, who is wearing the locket, picks angrily at the fish.

HERMIONE
Honestly Ron, stop picking at your food. I know it isn’t great but it’s all we have….

RON
That’s the problem; it’s all we’ve had for months now.

HERMIONE
Well that’s the price we had to pay to help Harry on his mission, did you honestly think food would be easy to come by?

RON
My mother can make food appear out of thin air.

HERMIONE
That’s not possible. Food is the first of the five Principal Exceptions to Gamp’s Law….

RON
Oh speak English won’t you?

HERMIONE
This is what we have Ronald. Harry caught the fish and I did my best with it! I notice I’m the one who ends up sorting out the food, because I’m a girl, I suppose!

RON
No, it’s because you’re supposed to be the best at magic!

HARRY
Shut up!

Harry jumps up and pulls out his wand.

RON
What’s your problem?

HARRY
I heard voices. Hermione…you cast the Muffliato charm over us right?

HERMIONE
I did everything. They shouldn’t be able to hear or see us, whoever they are.

Harry slowly walks out of the tent. Hermione and Ron follow and the camera pans over to show three dark figures sitting at the lake down the hill from where their campsite is. The three are sitting around a fire and they’re roasting fish over it. Harry puts his finger up over his lip signaling for them to remain quiet and the trio slowly walks down the hill towards the figures. They stand behind a huge tree and they’re able to see that the people are GRIPHOOK the goblin, Ted Tonks, and Dean Thomas.

HARRY
I wish we could hear what they’re saying.

Hermione smiles and pulls out Fred and George’s EXTENDABLE EARS. She sits the string down and it slowly moves towards the three cambers by itself and the stops right behind Ted.

EXT. WOOD-CAMPFIRE-MOMENTS LATER-NIGHT

TED
I’ve been on the run for about six weeks now. I refused to register as a Muggle-born on principle, see, so I knew it was a matter of time, knew I’d have to leave in the end. My wife should be okay, she’s pure-blood. Ran into Dean here about a few weeks ago.

GRIPHOOK
Muggle born aswell?

DEAN
Not sure. My dad left my mum when I was a kid. I’ve got no proof he was a wizard, though.

TED
But what about you Griphook? I had the impression the goblins were for You-Know-Who, on the whole?

GRIPHOOK
You had a false impression. We take no sides. This is a wizards war. I’m in hiding because I deemed it prudent. Having refused what I considered an impertinent request, I could see that my personal safety was in jeopardy.

DEAN
What did they ask you to do?

GRIPHOOK
Duties ill-befitting the dignity of my race. I am not a house elf. I had a small revenge however, before I left.

TED
You manage to lock a Death Eater up in one of the old high-security vaults at Gringotts I suppose?

GRIPHOOK
If I had, the sword would not have helped him break house.

Griphook laughs.

DEAN
I don’t get it.

GRIPHOOK
Neither does Severus Snape it seems. Did you not hear about the kids who tried to steal Gryffindor’s sword out of Snape’s office at Hogwarts a few weeks ago?

The camera cuts to a reaction shot of the trio.

TED
Never heard a word.

GRIPHOOK
Arthur Weasley’s youngest girl had some house elf apparate her into Snape’s office to steal the sword. She had friends watching out for Snape…they all got caught of course.

We see a look of shock on the trio’s face.

TED
What did they think, that they’d be able to use the sword on You-Know-Who?

GRIPHOOK
Whatever the reason was Snape decided the sword wasn’t safe where it was. Couple of days later, once he’d got the say-so from You-Know-Who; I imagine he sent it down to London to be kept in Gringotts instead.

Griphook laughs.

DEAN
What’s so funny?

GRIPHOOK
The sword of Gryffindor is a fake. It is a copy…an excellent copy. The original was forged centuries ago by goblins and had certain properties only goblin-made armor possess. Wherever the genuine sword of Gryffindor is, it is not in a vault at Gringotts bank.

DEAN
So what happened to Ginny and the others? The one’s who tried to steal it.

GRIPHOOK
Oh, they were punished, and cruelly.

TED
They’re okay though? I mean, the Weasley’s don’t need any more of their kids injured, do they?

GRIPHOOK
They suffered no serious injury, as far as I am aware.

TED
Lucky for them. With Snape’s track record I suppose we should just be glad they’re still alive. This is the man who killed Dumbledore after all.

GRIPHOOK
You believe that?

TED
Of course! Who else could have done it? Harry Potter? I know the Prophet is making Potter look guilty but by all means….

GRIPHOOK
So where is Potter? Run for it, by the looks of things.

DEAN
I know Harry Potter and he’s the real thing. The Chosen One…or whatever you want to call it. Shame the Prophet is infiltrated now…the truth should be heard.

TED
Ah but it is Dean. The Quibbler is still writing the facts.

DEAN
The Quibbler? Isn’t that Luna Lovegood’s fathers paper?

TED
The very same! Xeno is printing all the stuff the Prophet is ignoring. How long they’ll let him get away with it, I don’t know.

DEAN
And the fact that Harry hasn’t got caught yet proves he’s still out there.

TED
Indeed and next time I see him I’d like to shake his hand. Good thing he’s doing…here’s hoping he’ll succeed.

We see Hermione reeling in the extendable ears. The trio stares at each other in silence for a moment.
  



Ron's Decision:    


  INT. WOODS-TENT-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione rushing into the tent. Ron follows in a few seconds later.

HARRY
Ginny…the sword….

HERMIONE
I know!

HARRY
And the house elf..do you think…?

HERMIONE
Dobby…it has to be. Ginny knows how loyal he is to you and she probably went to him for help.

Hermione grabs her bag and starts looking through it. She pulls out the portrait of Phineas Nigellus.

HERMIONE
If somebody swapped the real sword for the fake while it was in Dumbledore’s office, Phineas Nigellus would have seen it happen; he hangs right beside the case!

She leans the picture against the bed and kneels down in front of it.

HERMIONE
Phineas Nigellus? Professor Black? Please could we talk to you? Please?

PHINIEAS (Offscreen)
Please always helps.

Phinieas slowly appears in the portrait and Hermione quickly points her wand at him.

HERMIONE
OBSCURO!

SWOOSH a blindfold appears over Phineas face.

PHINEAS
What! How dare you!

HERMIONE
I’m very sorry, Professor Black, but it’s a necessary precaution.

PHINEAS
Remove this foul addition at once! Where am I? What is going on?

HARRY
Never mind where we are.

PHINEAS
Can that possibly be the voice of the elusive Mr. Potter?

HARRY
Maybe. We’ve got a couple of questions to ask you…about the sword of Gryffindor.

PHINEAS
Ah yes. That silly girl acted most unwisely there…

RON
Shut up about my sister!

PHINEAS
The girl and her friends were foolhardy in the extreme. Thieving from the headmaster’s office!

HARRY
They weren’t thieving. That sword isn’t Snape’s.

PHINEAS
It belongs to Professor Snape’s school. Exactly what claim did the Weasley girl have upon it? She deserved her punishment, as did the idiot Longbottom and the Lovegood oddity!

HARRY
How did Snape punish them?

PHINEAS
Professor Snape sent them into the Forbidden Forest, to do some work for the oaf, Hagrid.

Harry laughs.

HARRY
I bet they had a good laugh with Hagrid. The Forbidden Forest…they’ve faced plenty worse. Big deal!

HERMIONE
What we really wanted to know, Professor Black, is whether anyone else has taken the sword at all? Maybe it’s been taken away for cleaning…..

PHINEAS
Goblin-made armor does not require cleaning, simple girl. I grow weary of this now; it is time for me to return to the headmaster’s office!

He turns to leave the portrait.

HARRY
Dumbledore! Couldn’t you bring him along, here, into your portrait?

PHINEAS
The portraits of Hogwarts may commune with each other, but they cannot travel outside the castle except to visit a painting of themselves hanging elsewhere. Dumbledore cannot come here with me and after the treatment I have received; I can assure you that I shall not be making a return visit!

HERMIONE
Professor Black couldn’t you just tell us, please, when was the last time the sword was taken out of its case? Before Ginny took it out, I mean?

PHINEAS
If you must know the last time I saw the sword of Gryffindor leave its case was when Professor Dumbledore used it to break open a ring.

Hermione and Harry both cast a look at each other.

PHINEAS
Well, good night to you!

SWOOSH and like that Phineas leaves the portrait.

HERMIONE
Harry!

HARRY
I know!

He jumps up in excitement and starts to pace.

HERMIONE
The sword can destroy Horcruxes! Goblin-made blades imbibe only that which strengthen them….Harry, that sword’s impregnated with basilisk venom!

HARRY
And Dumbledore didn’t give it to me because he still needed it; he wanted to use it on the locket….

HERMIONE
And he must have realized they wouldn’t let you have it if he put it in his will so he made a copy and put a fake in the glass case!

HARRY
So where did he leave the real one?

HERMIONE
Somehwere in Hogsmeade?

HARRY
The Shrieking Shack? Nobody ever goes in there.

HERMIONE
But Snape knows how to get in; wouldn’t that be a bit risky?

HARRY
Dumbledore trusted Snape.

HERMIONE
Not enough to tell him that he had swapped the swords.

HARRY
You’re right! What do you think Ron? Ron?

Harry turns and notices Ron sitting on his bed glaring at both of them.

RON
Oh, remembered me, have you? You two carry on; don’t let me spoil your fun.

HARRY
What’s your problem?

RON
Problem? I have no problem.

BOOM we hear thunder in the distance and then rain drops pounding against the tent.

HARRY
Well, you’ve obviously got a problm. Spit it out, will you?

Ron stands up; looking the angriest they have ever seen him.

RON
All right, I’ll spit it out. Don’t expect me to skip up and down the tent because there’s some other damn thing we’ve got to find. Just add it to the list of stuff you don’t know.

HARRY
I don’t know?

RON
It’s not like I’m not having the time of my life here. Nothing to eat and freezing my backside of every night. I just hoped, you know, after we’d been running around for weeks, we’d have achieved something.

HERMIONE
Ron….

BOOM there is another CRASH of lightening and a flash.

HARRY
I thought you knew what you’d signed up for?

RON
Yeah, I thought I did too.

HARRY
So what part of it isn’t living up to your expectations? Did you think we’d be staying in five-star hotels?

RON
We thought you knew what you were doing! We thought Dumbledore told you what to do, we thought you had a real plan!

HERMIONE
Ron!

HARRY
Well, sorry to let you down. I’ve been straight with you from the start; I told you everything Dumbledore told me. And in case you haven’t noticed, we’ve found one Horcrux….

RON
Yeah, and we’re about as near getting rid of it as we are to finding the rest of them….nowhere effing near, in other words!

HERMIONE
Take off the locket, Ron. You wouldn’t be talking like this if you hadn’t been wearing it all day.

HARRY
Yeah, he would.

RON
Even Hermione said she was disappointed, she thought you had a bit more to go on than….

HERMIONE
I didn’t say it like that!

HARRY
So why are you still here?

RON
Search me!

Ron storms out of the tent into the rain. Harry rushes after him and Hermione follows.

HARRY
Yeah…go home then!

RON
Maybe I will! Didn’t you hear what they said about my sister? But you don’t give a rat’s fart, do you; it’s only the Forbidden Forest…

HARRY
I was only saying…she was with the others, they were with Hagrid!

RON
Yeah, I get it, you don’t care! What about the rest of my family Harry? Didn’t you hear them? ‘The Weasley’s don’t need another kid injured!’

HERMIONE
Ron I don’t think it means anything new has happened…plenty of people must know George lost his ear…

RON
Oh, you’re sure, are you? Right then, well, I won’t bother myself about them. It’s all right for you two, with your parents safely out of the way….

HARRY
My parents are dead!

RON
And mine could be going the same way!

HARRY
Then GO! Go back to them, pretend you’ve got over your spattergroit and Mummy’ll be able to feed you and…

BAM Harry is thrown back by a spell Ron throws at him. Harry jumps up and pulls out his wand and casts a spell…

HERMIONE
PROTEGO!

The spell is blocked and Harry and Ron stare at each other angrily, as rain continues to fall heavily on them.

HERMIONE
Please you two!

HARRY
Leave the Horcrux.

Ron takes off the locket and throws it onto the ground. Ron looks over at Hermione.

RON
What are you doing?

HERMIONE
What do you mean?

RON
Are you staying or what?

HERMIONE
Yes I’m staying Ron, we said we’d go with Harry, we said we’d help….

RON
I get it. You choose him.

HERMIONE
Ron..no..please…come back!

Ron begins to walk away and Hermione begins to chase after him.

RON
PROTEGO!

A barrier forms that blocks Hermione from passing through. Ron continues to walk further away from them into the woods. Then SWOOSH he is gone.

HERMIONE
Ron! Please! Ron!!!!

Hermione falls to her knees and begins to cry as the rain continues to pour. Harry walks over and picks up the Horcrux staring down at it. The camera slowly zooms in onto the locket.

EXT. MONTAGE-FOLLOWING WEEKS

The scene slowly fades to a wide shot view of the entire country side. We see Harry and Hermione walking slowly through different landscapes. Slowly snow begins to fall and we transition into winter. We see shots of Hermione sadly putting up the protections around them and slowly fades to Phineas appearing in the portrait again and Hermione sitting down in front of it. The scene then cuts to Harry laying in his bed staring at the Mauraders Map. The camera zooms in to show Ginny Weasley’s name slowly moving across the map.
  


Xenophilius Lovegood:    


  Harry then grasps the locket and slowly twitches his neck. He sits the map down and sits up.

INT. TENT-WEEKS LATER-NIGHT

Harry looks over and notices Hermione reading the book Dumbledore gave her in his will.

HARRY
So any clues yet?

HERMIONE
No. I’ve read these stories dozens of times looking for clues but…wait a moment…Harry take a look at this.

Harry walks over and looks into the book and Hermione points out a symbol hidden within one of the letters of the stories title.

HERMIONE
I never noticed it before. It’s so small…what do you think it is?

HARRY
I don’t know…wait…isn’t that the same symbol Luna’s dad was wearing around his neck?

HERMIONE
I think you’re right…and look…

She turns to the front of the book.

HERMIONE
Look at Dumbledore’s signature. The A….

HARRY
It’s the symbol…

HERMIONE
I think this is what Dumbledore wanted me to find. But what does it mean. Did Luna’s father say anything?

HARRY
He said it had something to do with Hallows or something…I don’t remember it was so long ago.

HERMIONE
Maybe we could go ask him.

HARRY
Hermione….

HERMIONE
He’s on our side Harry. Remember what Mr. Tonks said, his paper is the only one printing the truth and I know he’ll be willing to meet us. If only we knew where he lived…

HARRY
He told me…over the hill from the Weasley’s…it shouldn’t be that hard to find.

INT. NIGHT-HILLTOP-MOMENTS LATER

They both look at each other and the scene cuts to a wideshot of a hill and SWOOSH Harry and Hermione pull the cloak off of themselves. The camera pans over their shoulder to show The Burrow off in the distance and on the opposite side of the hill stood a strange looking house.

HARRY
That’s got to be Luna’s house…there…

HERMIONE
I think you’re right…let’s go…

They throw the invisibility cloak over them and the scene cuts to us seeing there footsteps walking up the trail towards the house. The camera pans up to show the three hand painted signs in front of the house which read,

THE QUIBBLER. EDITOR: X. LOVEGOOD

PICK YOUR OWN MISTLETOE

KEEP OFF THE DIRIGBLE PLUMS

EXT. LOVEGOODS HOME-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

Once they make it to the steps they pull of the Invisibility Cloak. As Hermione places it in her bag Harry takes a deep breath and takes the knocker and knockes three times. BAM the door flies open and a nervous looking Xenophilius opens the door.

XENO
What? What is it? Who are you? What do you want!?!?

HARRY
Hello, Mr. Lovegood. I’m Harry, Harry Potter.

Xeno stares down at Harry, not saying a word.

HARRY
There’s something we’d like to ask you. Would it be okay if we came in?

Xeno casts a side look over at his garden.

XENO
I’m not sure that’s advisable….I’m afraid I don’t really think I ought to…

HARRY
It won’t take long.

XENO
Oh…oh all right then. Come in, quickly. Quickly!

Hermione and Harry rush in and we see Xeno take another quick look outside and BAM shuts the door.

INT. LOVEGOODS HOME-NIGHT-SECONDS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione looking curiously at their kitchen.

XENO
Follow me.

They follow him up a spiral staircase. Once they reach the top the camera pans over to show the stacks of books, models of creatures, and there is a large PRINTING PRESS churning out newspapers. Xeno quickly waves his wand and a huge tablecloth flies over it muffling the sound.

XENO
So why did you come here Mr. Potter?

HERMIONE
Mr. Lovegood….what’s that?

The camera pans over to show an ERUMPENT HORN hanging from the wall.

XENO
It is the horn of a Crumple-Horned Snorkack.

HERMIONE
No it isn’t!

HARRY
Hermione…not now….

HERMIONE
Mr. Lovegood you need to get rid of it straighaway, don’t you know it can explode at the slightest touch? I recognize the grooved markings around the base. That’s an Erumpent horn and it’s incredibly dangerous...I don’t know where you got it…

XENO
I bought it two weeks ago, from a delightful young wizard who knew of my interst in the exquisite Snorkack. It’s a Christmas surprise for my Luna. Now, why exactly have you come here Mr. Potter?

HARRY
We need help.

XENO
Help. Yes, well….helping Harry Potter…is rather dangerous…

HARRY
I heard you were printing good things…the truth…in your paper and I just thought….

XENO
Yes….yes…well…

HERMIONE
You seem like you don’t want to help us. Where’s Luna? She should be home for Holiday now shouldn’t she?

XENO
Luna…yes..she’s….down at the stream, fishing for Freshwater Plimpies.

HERMIONE
There’s no such thing…

HARRY
Hermione….

XENO
She will like to see you…yes…I’ll go and call her and then….I shall help you.

He quickly exits and we hear the door slam. Harry and Hermione look at each other.

HERMIONE
Did he seem a bit….

HARRY
Odd…yeah…not the same man I met at my birthday party that’s for sure.

Harry walks over and looks out of the window and we see a tiny bird fly by. He stares off into the distance and we see a faint view of ‘The Burrow’

HARRY
This is the closest we’ve been to anyone in months. Everyone I love…is just over that hill. I wonder if Ron went home.

He pauses and we see Hermione drop her head as he says this. Harry turns around.

HARRY
Hermione I’m sorry….

HERMIONE
No…please….

We hear the door slam again and moments later Xeno appears at the top of the stairs.

XENO
Luna is down boyound Bottom Bridge, she is most excited that you are here. She ought not be too long, she has caught nearly enough Plimpies to make soup for all of us. Do sit down. Would you like an infusion of Gurdyroots?

HARRY and HERMIONE
No thanks.

XENO
Oh please you are my guests.

HARRY
Alright then.

XENO
Yes well sit down.

Harry and Hermione take a seat and Xeno pours the deep purple drink into two tea cups and then sits down in a seat across from them.

XENO
There’s sugar there if you need it. So…how may I help you Mr. Potter.

HARRY
Well…it’s about that symbol you were wearing around your neck at my birthday party. We were wondering what it meant.

XENO
Are you referring to the sign or the Deathly Hallows?
  


The Tale of the Three Brothers:    


  HERMIONE
The Deathly Hallows?

XENO
That’s right. You haven’t heard of them? I’m not surprised. Very few wizards believe. Many think it’s a dark symbol but there’s nothing dark about the Hallows…at least, not in the crude sense. One simply uses the symbol to reveal oneself to other believers, in the hope that they might help one with the Quest.

Xeno takes a sip of the drink.

HARRY
I don’t understand.

Harry then slowly takes a sip of the drink and nearly gags. Hermione holds back a chuckle.

XENO
Well, you see, believers seek the Deathly Hallows.

HERMIONE
But what are the Deathly Hallows?

XENO
I assume that you are familiar with ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers?”

HARRY
No…

HERMIONE
Yeah…that’s the story Dumbledore drew the symbol on Harry…..

She pulls out the book and opens it and points it out to Harry.

HERMIONE
Right there…’The Tale of the Three Brothers’…

XENO
Is that the Original? Can I see.

Hermione hands the book over to Xeno.

XENO
Ah yes this is the original copy of ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’

HERMIONE
But what does that story have to do with The Deathly Hallows?

XENO
Why don’t I just read it to you?

Xeno flips to the page.

XENO
There were once three brothers who were traveling along a lonely, winding road at twilight….

As he reads we see the camera camera zoom in on the words and slowly fade to a shot of the three brothers walking down a street. As Xeno reads we see them act out his words.

XENO (V.O.)
In time, the brothers reached a river to deep to wade through and too dangerous to swim across. However, these brothers were learned in the magical arts, and so they simply waved their wands and made a bridge appear across the treacherous water. They were halfway across it when they found their path b locked by a hooded figure. And Death spoke to them….

HARRY (V.O.)
Wait….

The scene cuts back to real time.

HARRY
Sorry but Death…spoke to them?

HERMIONE
It’s a fairy tale, Harry.

HARRY
Right, sorry. Go on.

XENO
Yes…well….

The scene cuts back to the brothers standing in front of Death.

XENO (V.O.)
And Death spoke to them. He was angry that he had been cheated out of three new victims but Death was cunning. He pretended to congratulate them upon their magic and said that each had earned a prize for having been clever enough to evade him.

DEATH
I will give you anything you want…anything at all. Tell me…what is your hearts desire?

IGNOTUS
I don’t think he’s to be trusted brothers. He is death after all. He wants us to die.

CADMUS
Quiet Ignotus! This could be the chance we’ve all been looking for.

IGNOTUS
But Cadmus…Antioch talk to him.

ANTIOCH
That’s enough Ignotus! So…anything you say?

DEATH
What does your heart desire?

ANTIOCH
I want a wand. The most powerful wand ever to be made. A wand that must always win duels for its owner, a wand worthy of a wizard who had conquered death!

Death smiles and we see Ignotus drop his head. Death raises his hand and we see a nearby Elder tree start to shake violently. BOOM it is up rooted and begins to spin and then SWOOSH it explodes and floating in its place is a WAND. The wand floats in front of Antioch’s face. He takes it and looks down at it and Death walks over to Cadmus.

DEATH
And you?

CADMUS
I want the power to bring back the dead.

We see Death hesitate and then he smiles. SWOOSH a wind comes and we see a small stone floating in the wind. He stops in front of Cadmus and begins to spin.

DEATH
All you must do is turn this stone three times and you will have the power to bring back the dead.

Cadmus smiles and takes the stone. Death walks over to Ignotus who looks distraught.
DEATH
And for you?

Ignotus stares at Death for a second in silence.

IGNOTUS
I want…I want….

He glances over to his brothers who are both admiring there gifts.

IGNOTUS
I want something that will enable me to go forth from this place without being followed by Death itself.

Death frowns at this. Death opens his cloak and pulls out an Invisibility Cloak. He hands it to Ignotus who takes it and throws it over himself and he disappears.

DEATH
Now you may pass…until…next time.

He smiles and burst into flames which fly off it all directions. We see a wideshot of the brothers standing in front of the river again. The camera keeps moving upwards as clouds start sweeping across the screen.

XENO (V.O.)
In due course the brothers separated, each for his own destination.

We see the clouds quickly morph into a fire, turn violently and BAM fly towards a wizard knocking him backwards. The camera pans over to show Antioch with his wand pointed in the direction of the wizard. He laughs as another wizard fires a spell at him, but it is quickly deflected and BOOM that wizard is knocked back. The camera pans up to show a group of wizards, all dead, laying in Antiochs wake. He begins to laugh loudly.

ANTIOCH
I am UNSTOPPABLE! This wand, taken by death itself, is mine alone and with it I will do great things!

BOOM the wand is blast out of his hand by an unknown wizard. Antioch looks around in shock before trying to run and retrieve the wand. Before he can reach it BOOM he is blasted back and CRASHES into a wall. We see a wizard come out of the darkness and picks up the wand.

WIZARD
You know, you probably shouldn’t boast so much and put down your guard. You never know who’s listening.

The wizard smiles and turns and walks away.

ANTIOCH
No…NO!!!

He starts to cough up blood and his breathing gets heavier. We start to hear his heart beat over the screen slowing down and out of the shadow Death appears with a smile on his face. Antioch gives out a scream of rage as the scene cuts to a house sitting in the distance. There is a FLASH of lightning and we see Cadmus sitting on his bed rocking back and forth with tears running his eyes. We see in his hand the stone and the camera pans over to show a girl. She looks sad and has a ghostly quality to her.

CADMUS
All I wanted….was to see you again…to finally marry you..but you’re suffering now that I brought you back. There’s only one way I can truly join you my love.

We see Cadmus pull out a knife and the camera cuts to show the stone falling out of his hand and blood slowly trickles from his hand onto the stone. The girl disappears and out of the shadow we see Death appear again with a smile on his face. The camera passes through Deaths eyes and there is a wind as we see a wideshot of the forest again.

XENO (V.O.)
Death searched for the third brother for many years, yet he was never able to find him. It was only when he had attained a great age that the youngest brother finally took off the Cloak of Invisibility and gave it to his son.

We cut to a shot of Death standing in front of the same river as before and we see a figure walking up from behind. Death turns and see’s and an aged Ignotus walking slowly towards him. Ignotus smiles at death and death does the same. Opening his arms for him and they greet each other like old friends. The camera then finally pans up and towards the sky, which is full of letters now, and passes through those letters back into the the real world and onto Xeno.

XENO
And he greeted Death as an old friend, and went with him gladly, and, equals, they departed this life.

Xeno closes the book and stares at Harry and Hermione. They both sit there in silence.

XENO
Well there you have it.

HERMIONE
Sorry?

XENO
Those are the Deathly Hallows.
  


The Deathly Hallows:    


  He gets up and grabs a piece of parchment and sits it on a table. Harry and Hermione stand behind him.

XENO
The Elder Wand.

Xeno draws a straight vertical line.

XENO
The Resurrection Stone.

He draws a circle on top of the line.

XENO
The Cloak of Invisibility.

He encloses both the cirle and line in a triangle.

XENO
Together the Deathly Hallows.

HERMIONE
But there is no mention of the words ‘Deathly Hallows’ in the story.

XENO
Well, of course not. That is a children’s tale, told to amuse rather than to instruct. Those of us who understand these matters, however, recognize that the ancient story refers to three objects, or Hallows, which, if united, will make the possessor master of Death.

HERMIONE
Mr. Lovegood…I’m sorry…but how can you possibly believe this. We all know there are such things as Invisibility Cloaks. They are rare, but they exist, but….

XENO
Ah but the third Hallaw is a true Cloack of Invisiblity, Miss Granger! We are talking about a cloak that really and truly renders the wearer completely invisible, and endures eternally, giving constant and impenetrable concealment, no matter what spells are cast at it. How many cloaks have you ever seen like that, Miss Granger?

Harry and Hermione both cast a side look at each other.

XENO
Exatly. Now many of us believe the three in the tale are indeed the Peverell brothers. Antioch, Cadmus, and Ignotus. We believe they were the original owners.

HARRY
So the Elder Wand. Do you think that exists too?

XENO
The Elder Wand is the Hallow that is most easily traced, because of the way in which is passes from hand to hand. You see the possessor of the wand must capture it from its previous owner, if he is to be truly master of it. Now if you will excuse me, I’ll go and grab us some dinner. You will stay for dinner will you?

HARRY
Yeah…sure.

Xeno gives a faint smile, a quick glance at the window, and goes downstairs.

HERMIONE
This is utter rubbish. This can’t be what the sign really means.

Harry begins to pace.

HARRY
The Cloak, the wand, and the stone. Hermione do you think there is truly a wand that is unbeatable?



HERMIONE
Well there have been stores about extra-powerful wands for hundreds of years. The Deathstick, the Wand of Destiny, it has different names through the centuries but it’s all nonsense.

HARRY
But how do you know? Those wands could all be this…Elder wand…he was right about the Cloak Hermione. I have it.

HERMIONE
Yeah I know Harry...it’s just…hard to believe. Harry?

Harry is at the stairs and looking up at the next level. The camera pans up and we see Harry’s own face staring down at him. Harry slowly begins to climb up the stairs.

HERMIONE
Harry, what are you doing? Harry come back!

INT. LOVEGOOD HOME-LUNA’S ROOM-NIGHT

We see Harry walk into Luna’s room. The camera pans up to show her bedroom ceiling with five painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They look like they’re breathing and the word ‘friends’ was written thousands of times in golden ink under their pictures.

HARRY
Wow.

He then looks around and notices that the room was empty. No clothes in the cupboard and the bed looks like it hasn’t been slept in for weeks. Harry frowns slightly and runs downstairs and see’s Xeno placing the tray of food of a table.

INT. LOVEGOOD HOME-SECOND LEVEL-MOMENTS LATER.

XENO
Ah there you are.

HERMIONE
Harry….what’s wrong?

HARRY
Where’s Luna Mr. Lovegood?

XENO
Excuse me?

HARRY
Luna…where is she?

XENO
I’ve told you already. She is down at Bottom Bride, fishing for Plimpies.

HARRY
So why have you only laid that tray for three?

Xeno face freezes in fear. Hermione looks over at him suspiciously.

HARRY
I don’t think Luna’s been here for weeks. Her clothes are gone; her bed hasn’t been slept in. Where is she? And why do you keep looking out of the window?

Xeno goes to move but Hermione and Harry both pull out their wands on him. He glances over to the object under the cloak. Harry runs over and pulls the tablecloth off of the printing press and we see hundreds of copies of the newspaper being printed. Harry picks up a copy of ‘THE QUIBBLER’ and on the cover is a picture of him with the words ‘UNDESIRABLE NUMBER ONE’ and a caption of the reward money.

HARRY
The Quibbler’s going for a new angle then? Is that what you were doing when you went into the garden, Mr. Lovegood? Sending an owl to the Ministry.

Tears begin to fall down Xeno’s eyes.

XENO
They….they took my Luna.

INT. HOGWARTS-CORRIDOR-NIGHT-WEEKS AGO (FLASHBACK)

The scene cuts to a shot of Luna walking down a corridor at Hogwarts. She turns the corner and standing there is Alecto with a smile on her face.

ALECTO
Told you your father was going to pay for printing that filth.

BOOM Luna is surrounded by ropes as Alecto laughs. We see Greyback appear from behind and cover her head with a bag.

INT. LOVEGOOD’S HOME-PRESENT DAY-DAWN

XENO
They took her because of what I’ve been writing. They might give her back to me if I…if…

HERMIONE
You hand over Harry?

HARRY
Let’s get out of here.

XENO
I must save Luna! I cannot lose her. You must not leave!

He blocks them from going down the stairs.

XENO
They’ll be here at any moment.

HARRY
Don’t make us hurt you. Get out of the way, Mr. Lovegood.

HERMIONE
HARRY!

Harry looks over and in the distance we see two dark clouds of smoke flying quickly over the horizon towards the house. Xeno uses the moment to pull out his wand. Harry quickly notices and shoves Hermione out of the way. BAM a spell flies out of Xeno’s wand barely missing Harry and Hermione and BOOM it hits the Erumpent horn. There is a huge explosion and most of the room is blown to shreds. Harry is thrown against the far wall as debris pour over him, Xeno is thrown downstairs, and Hermione hits the Printing Press. BOOM Luna’s bed comes crashing down from the upperlevel. The camera quickly plummets through the rubble and onto Lovegood who has landed on a table. CRASH the door is blown open and Greyback and TRAVERS walk into the house.

GREYBACK
Didn’t I tell you there was no need to hurry, Travers. Didn’t I tell you this nutter was just raving as usual?

XENO
No…wait…Potter is upstairs.

Xeno starts to scream out in pain as Greyback points his wand in his direction.

GREYBACK
I told you last week, Lovegood, we weren’t coming back for anything less than some solid information!

BAM Xeno is hit with another spell and thrown against the wall.

The camera pans up to show Harry and Hermione, both covered in dust and debris, looking down from a small hole in the upper level.

XENO
I beg you…it really is Potter! Really!

TRAVERS
You lying piece of filth. You’ve never seen Potter in your life, have you? Thought you’d lure us here to kill us, did you? And you think you’ll get your girl back like this?

GREYBACK
I do smell Potter, but it could be a trick like at the train station earlier this year. That trick is old Lovegood!

TRAVERS
Homenum revelio!

A strange shadow appears over Harry and Hermione’s body. There is a loud snape and Travers looks over at Greyback.

TRAVERS
There’s someone here alright.

GREYBACK
You can have your little girl, Lovegood. If you get up those stairs and bring me down Harry Potter. If it’s a trick…well….

He licks his lips.

GREYBACK
Maybe I’ll save a bit of your daughter for you to bury.

Xeno quickly jumps up and tries to remove to debris blocking the stairs.

HARRY
We’ve got to get out of here.

HERMIONE
Do you trust me, Harry?

Harry nods.

HERMIONE
Okay then, take my hand.

Harry and Hermione stand up and Harry grabs Hermione’s hand. Hermione points her wand at the stairs and just as Xeno appears at the top…

HERMIONE
Obliviate!

BAM he is thrown backwards and she points her wand at the floor.

HERMIONE
Deprimo!

BAM the floor between them is blown to shreds and they both begin to fall. Greyback and Travers both look up and notice Harry and Hermione falling and SWOOSH they are gone.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-DAWN-MOMENTS LATER

BOOM they appear in a forest and fall into the snow. Hermione quickly jumps up and starts putting up the protection and Harry tries to gain composure. SWOOSH the final spell is casts and Hermione falls to her knees in exhaustion.

HERMIONE
I hope they don’t kill Mr. Lovegood. That’s why I wanted the Death Eaters to get a glimpse of you before we left, so they knew Xenophilius hadn’t been lying. Also…

HARRY
They won’t hurt Luna. Brillaint Hermione. I hope she’s okay.

HERMIONE
Luna’s tough…she’ll be fine.

HARRY
Right…well…let’s get the tent up shall we?
  


The Silver Doe:    


  INT. FOREST OF DEAN-TENT-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione inside of the tent. Hermione is reading Beedle the Bard and Harry is staring at the locket.

HERMIONE
This is ridiculous. I still don’t see how he got Deathly Hallows from this story.

HARRY
Its’ been a long night Hermione, rest on it, we’ll discuss it in the morning.


Hermione glances over to the empty portrait of Phineas.

HERMIONE
I wonder if Phineas knows anything about this?

HARRY
Probably. It’s late so he’s probably sleeping or something.

HERMIONE
Yeah…you’re right.

HARRY
Where are we anyway Hermione?

HERMIONE
Oh…the Forest of Dean. My parents would bring me here camping. It’s the first place I thought of.

HARRY
Right…well...get some sleep…

HERMIONE
Night Harry.

She turns off the light and lies in her bed and Harry lays down as well. As he falls asleep the scene slowly fades to a shot of Dumbledore on the ASTRONOMY TOWER. We see Snape walk up to him and BOOM Dumbledore is hit with a spell and Harry jumps up from his sleep. He looks over to Hermione, still sleeping, and puts on his coat and walks outside.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

Harry steps into the darkness and begins to walk slowly. He yawns and a LIGHT catches his eye. There’s a faint white light in the distance moving slowly towards him. Harry pulls out his wand and points it in the direction of the light. All of a sudden a silver-white doe steps from behind a tree. Harry lowers his wand and stares at the creature in awe. Harry and to Doe stare at each other in silence for a moment and the Doe turns and walks away.

HARRY
(whispers)
No…

Harry quickly runs after the Doe. We see the Doe going deeper and deeper into the forest and Harry walks slowly behind it, keeping her in his sight. The Doe walks up to a frozen lake and pauses. She turns around and looks at Harry and slowly vanishes. Now Harry, standing in pitch black, gets a panicked look in his eyes.

HARRY
Lumos!

The wand lights up and Harry starts to look around to see if anyone is there. He then begins to walk towards the lake slowly. He raises his wand and there is something there. Harry drops to his knees and angles his wand just right to see what it was. The Sword of Gryffindor lies at the bottom of the lake.

HARRY
(Whispers)
The sword of Gryffinor.

Harry looks around to see if anyone is watching.

HARRY
Accio Sword!

Nothing happens. Harry stands up as he knows what he has to do. He glances around once again and then begin to take off his clothing. He sits everything in a nice pile next to the lake. Harry points his wand at the frozen ice.

HARRY
Diffindo!

A crack appears in the ice and it grows and grows until crack chunks of ice break apart leaving it clear for Harry to jump in. Harry sits his still lit wand down by the edge of the lake and takes a deep breath. He then plunges into it.

INT. FROZEN LAKE-NIGHT

We see Harry dive into the water. He looks around and see’s the handle of the sword. He starts to swim towards it and his hand grasps the handle. All of a sudden the locket around his neck turns upward and starts to suffocate him. His hand lets go of the sword and tries to pull the locket from his throat. Harry starts to kick wildey and his eyes slowly begin to roll into the back of his head. The screen is slowly starts to fade to black as we see a hand coming up from behind Harry.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

Harry falls to the snow gasping for air nad coughing up water. He grasps his neck and notices the locket is gone. A look of panic starts to feel Harry’s eyes.


RON (O.S.)
Are…you…mental!

Harry turns around and the camera pans up to show Ron standing there. He is holding the locket in one hand and the sword of Gryffindor in the other.

RON
Why the hell didn’t you take this thing off before you dived?

Harry stares up at Ron in disbelief. He then grabs his clothes and begins to dress.

HARRY
It was…y..you..? You cast the doe?

RON
What? No, of course not! I thought it was you doing it!

HARRY
My patronus is a stag.

RON
Oh yeah….

Harry pulls the final sweater over his head.

HARRY
How come you’re here?

RON
Well, I’ve…you know…come back. If you still want me…that is…

Harry looks at the sword in Ron’s hand.

RON
I got it out for you. That’s why you jumped in, right?

HARRY
Yeah. But I don’t understand. How did you get here? How did you find us?

RON
Long story. I’ve been looking for you for hours, and I was just thinking I’d have to keep under a tree and wait for morning when I saw that deer coming and you following.

HARRY
You didn’t see anyone else?

RON
Well..I think I saw something move over there, but I was running to the pool at the time, because you’d gone in and you hadn’t come up, so….

Harry walks over to where Ron pointed and starts to look around.

RON
Anything there?

HARRY
No.

RON
So how did the sword get in that pool? Do you think it’s the real one?

HARRY
There’s only one way to find out isn’t there?

The scene cuts to Harry placing the Horcrux on a flat rock. Ron goes to hand Harry the sword but Harry backs away.

HARRY
You should do it.

RON
Me? Why?

HARRY
Because you got the sword out of the pool. I think it’s supposed to be you. Now I’m going to open it and you stab it. Straightaway, okay? Because whatever’s in there will put up a fight.

RON
How are you going to open it?

HARRY
I’m going to ask it to open, using Parseltongue.

RON
No…don’t open it! I’m serious!

HARRY
Why not?



RON
Because that things bad for me! I can’t handle it! It affects me worse than it affected you and Hermione, it made me think stuff…stuff I was thinking anyway, but it made everything worse. I can’t do it Harry!

HARRY
I know you can do it Ron. I know it’s supposed to be you who uses it. Please, just get rid of it, Ron.

Ron stares at Harry for a moment.

RON
Tell me when.

HARRY
On three.

Harry stares down at the locket.

HARRY
One…two…three…sssiiiyahhsiheth.

There’s a CLICK and the door of the locket swings open. Behind the mirrors inside lies a living eye. He blinks and looks at both of them.

HARRY
Stab.

Then from inside of the Horcrux a voice hisses out.

RIDDLE
I have seen your heart, and it is mine.

HARRY
Don’t listen to it! Stab it!

RIDDLE
I have seen your dreams, Ronald Weasley, and I have seen your fears. All you desire is possible, but all that you dread is also possible….

HARRY
Stab it Ron!

RIDDLE
Least loved by the girl who prefers your friend…second best. Always, eternally overshadowed….

SWOOSH two grotesque bubbles, the head of Harry and Hermione, but weirdly distorted, appear above the locket.

RIDDLE-HARRY
Why return? We were better without you, happier without you, glad of your absence….

RIDDLE-HERMIONE
Who could look at you, who would ever look at you, beside Harry Potter? What have you ever done, compared with the Boy Who Lived? What woman would take you, you are nothing….

She begins to laugh and Harry and Hermione both begin to kiss.

HARRY
Do it Ron! Now!

Tears begin to stream down Ron’s eyes as he raises the sword above his head and BAM slams it into the locket. There is a loud scream and BOOM there is a sudden gust of wind that knocks Harry and Ron backwards. Harry gets up and walks over to the Horcrux, now broken. He picks it up and stares at it. Harry then looks over to Ron, sword next to him, crying with his knees drawn up to his chest. Harry slowly walks over to Ron and kneels down in front of him and places his hand on his shoulder.

HARRY
After you left she cried for a week. She’s like my sister. I love her like a sister and I reckon she feels the same way about me. It’s always been like that. I thought you knew.

RON
I’m sorry….I’m sorry I left. I know I was a..a…

HARRY
You’ve sort of made up for it tonight. Getting the sword. Finishing off the Horcrux. Saving my life.

RON
That makes me sound a lot cooler than I was.

HARRY
Stuff like that always sounds cooler than it really was. I’ve been trying to tell you that for years.

Ron looks up at Harry and smiles. Harry stands up and holds his hand out to help Ron up. They both hug as tears stream from both of their eyes.


HARRY
I missed you, more than you know.

RON
It was the Deluminator Harry.

Harry backs away from Ron who pulls the Deluminator out of his pocket.

RON
It doesn’t just turn the lights on and off. It was just a few hours ago and I was listening to the radio and I heard you. Your voice came out of this.

HARRY
And what did I say?

RON
You said….

INT. LOVEGOOD’S HOME-FLASHBACK.

We cut to a hazy flashback.

HARRY
I wonder if Ron went home.

He pauses and we see Hermione drop her head as he says this. Harry turns around.

HARRY
Hermione I’m sorry….

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-PRESENT TIME-NIGHT

We cut back to present time.

RON
So I took it out and I clicked it.

The scene then cuts to Ron sitting in a bedroom.

INT. SHELL COTTAGE-NIGHT

We see Ron sitting in the room looking at the Deluminator. He clicks it and the light goes out in his room but another light appears outside of the window.

RON (V.O.)
I knew this was it so I grabbed my stuff and packed and went out into the garden.

We see Ron packing and then walking outside into a garden and standing in front of the hovering light.

RON (V.O.)
The little ball of light was hovering there, waiting for me, and when I came out it, well, went inside of me.

We see the ball go into Ron’s chest and SWOOSH he Disapparates into the Forest of Dean.

RON (V.O.)
I knew with all the protection up I probably woudn’t be able to find you two..but then I saw it…that doe…

We see see Ron watching the Doe in the distance and then we see Harry following it and the scenes fades back to current time.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-NIGHT

RON
It’s kind of funny now that I think about it. Dumbledore knew what he was doing when he gave me the Deluminator. He must’ve known I’d run out on you.

HARRY
No. He must’ve known you’d always come back.

Ron smiles at Harry.

HARRY
Well I think we should get back to the tent.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-TENT-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Ron standing in front of the tent.

RON
She’s going to kill me.

HARRY
Yep.

INT. THE TENT-MOMENTS LATER

They walk into the tent and Hermione is still sleeping.

HARRY
Hermione! Hey Hermione.

She sits up quickly and reaches for her wand.

HERMIONE
What’s wrong?

HARRY
Nothing, everything fine. There’s…someone here.

HERMIONE
What do you mean? Who…?

Harry steps to the side and shows Ron standing there. Her eyes widen and she stands up slowly. She walks slowly towards Ron.

RON
Hey.

BOOM she quickly picks up her wand and blasts him backwards out of the tent. She storms out quickly. Harry tries to grab her but misses.

EXT. FOREST OF DEAN-OUTSIDE TENT-MOMENTS LATER

HERMIONE
You complete arse Ronald Weasley!

RON
Hermione….

She starts to throw punch after punch at him.

HERMIONE
You crawl back here…after weeks…and…

RON
Hermione…I’m…OW…HERMIONE!

She raises her wand to curse him again.

HARRY
Accio!

The wand flies out of her hand and Harry grabs it.

HERMIONE
Give my wand back to me!

HARRY
Hermione will you please.

HERMIONE
Don’t you tell me what to do, Harry Potter! Don’t you dare! And YOU! I came running after you! I called you! I begged you to come back!

RON
I know Hermione, I’m sorry, I’m really….

HERMIONE
You’re sorry! You come back after weeks and you think it’s all going to be all right if you just say sorry!

HARRY
Hermione he saved my life…

HERMIONE
I don’t care! Weeks Ron…weeks!

RON
I know..I…

He slowly walks up to her and puts his arm around her. She begins to cry, softly pounding his chest.
  


Where to next?:    


  The scene cuts to a shot of the sun rising over the horizon of the Forest of Dean. The snow glistening and we see a flock of birds fly across the screen. The camera pans down to show Harry and Ron taking down the tent and Hermione is in the distance lifting spells. She walks slowly towards them as she finishes.

RON
So where are we off to next?

HERMIONE
Don’t know. It seems we have more questions than answers now.

HARRY
Well we know about the Deathly Hallows.

HERMIONE
Rubbish.

RON
Deathly Hallows?

HARRY
We’ll tell you about that later.

HERMIONE
Yes well are we all packed then?

HARRY
Hermione…I…I think I want to go to Godrics Hollow.

HERMIONE
I knew you were going to say that. We’ll see...but first we’ll find another place to camp and come up with a plan. A proper plan.

RON
I’m sure you’ll come up with something great.

HERMIONE
Flattery isn’t going to work Ronald.

He smiles at her and she rolls her eyes.

HERMIONE
So we’re all packed then?

RON
Ready.

HARRY
Ready.

They both take Hermione’s hand and they all smile at each other and SWOOSH they are gone. The camera pans up towards the Sun now over the horizon and the screen slowly fades to black.
  


Voldemort's New Mission:    


  
Then we hear a scream and we see a wideshot of the Lovegood’s house. It looks completely destroyed and the camera quickly pans over the fence and through the window to show Xeno on the floor cowering in pain. A foot steps into the frame and the camera pans up to show Voldemort standing over him with his wand raised.

VOLDEMORT
What did Harry Potter want from you Lovegood. Crucio!

Xeno screams out in pain and we hear a laugh as Bellatrix appears from behind Voldemort.

VOLDEMORT
Tell me now!

XENO
He wanted…he wanted to know about the Deathly Hallows.

Voldemorts eyes widen and he lowers his wand. Bellatrix looks over at him concerned.

BELLATRIX
What is it my lord?

VOLDEMORT
How could ….how did he know about the Hallows?

XENO
Dumbledore…left the symbol and they figured I knew what it was and came to me for help.

VOLDEMORT
Even in death Dumbledore is a thorn in my side. Yes…why would he want Potter to know….Lovegood…the Elder Wand…where is it?

XENO
I don’t…please…I don’t know! The last person that was rumored to have the wand was the dark wizard Grindewald!

Voldemort eyes widen and a smile creeps on his face.

VOLDEMORT
Grindewald….

BELLATRIX
What do you want me to do my lord?

VOLDEMORT
Send out the Snatchers in full force.

BELLATRIX
Do you think Potter will say it?

VOLDEMORT
Yes.

The camera pans down and we see Nagini slithering at Voldemorts feet.

VOLDEMORT
And I have a special mission for you Nagini. Just in case.

Voldemort turns and begins to walk out of the house.

XENO
Please…my Luna!

BELLATRIX
What do you want me to do with him?

VOLDEMORT
Nothing…he’s worthless…but he must be kept alive. Potter may want to come back. We’ll keep watch on him.

Voldemort walks outside and looks up into the sky, Nagini on his shoulders. Bellatrix walks out beside him.

VOLDEMORT
Alert me if there’s any word on Potter. I have something to do. Someone to find.

He lets out a scream and turns into a stream of black smoke and flies towards the screen and the screen goes black.

To Be Concluded….
