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

Ok guys as a special holiday treat instead of the next chapter of HBP I will present to you guys..the never seen by public eyes...my screenplay for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I started on this a while back and I've yet to finish it actually (Writers block..cutting some characters proved harder than I thought) So here it is and I know I know it's horrible. I was just playing around with ideas (And as a side note this was pre Dumbledore's big announcement so don't read into the opening scene to much )


I just wanted to see you guys opinion on it really so here it is and Happy Holidays!



EXT. DARK VILLAGE-NIGHT

The WB logo slowly floats towards the screen out of a sea of dark clouds. As we fly through the logo flashes of light are seen in the distance. The camera slowly moves forward as we see two wizards throwing spells at each other in the distance. We then see ALBUS DUMBLEDORE standing with is wand at the ready with rubble all around him with fire in his eyes. Across the screen we see Fifty (?) years earlier.

DUMBLEDORE
You don’t have to do this Grindewald, please old friend listen to reason!

A powerful spell is thrown at Dumbledore and he produces a shield that deflects it and there’s a loud BOOM as the spell hits a nearby building sending debris flying everywhere. GRINDEWALD stands on the opposite side of Dumbledore with a huge smile on his face.

GRINDEWALD
Why do you oppose me Albus? You know of the power that I hold, we were once on the same page…

DUMBLEDORE
Things change Grindewald and so do people.

GRINDEWALD
That’s unfortunate….

Grindewald throws a bright red spell at Dumbledore, which Dumbledore barely avoids while throwing a series of blue spells at Grindewald. Grindewald deflects the spells back at Dumbledore and one hits him sending him off his feet flying backwards. Dumbledore stumbles up on his feet and looks up with defeat in his eyes as Grindewald slowly walks towards him with a smile.

GRINDEWALD
Your effort was admirable Albus, but you knew that it was foolish to oppose me. I am all-powerful…

DUMBLEDORE
Perhaps…EXPELLIARMUS!

The spell knocks Grindewalds wand out of his hand and sends it flying in the air. The camera shows the wand flying into the air towards Dumbledore.

DUMBLEDORE
But you in all your ignorance forgot that the simplest of spell could do the trick…
(He smiles as he reaches up into the air and grabs Grindewalds wand)
And now I have your precious wand…old friend.

Gridewald drops to his knees in defeat as the camera zooms pass him into the night sky into those eerie clouds as ‘Present Day’ scrolls across the screen the camera approaches a high gate which opens as it passes through going towards the MALFOY MANOR.

INT. MALFOY MANOR-NIGHT

Inside the home the camera follows NAGINI the snake as she slithers beside a table. We hear voices talking as she continues to move towards the table.

VOLDEMORT
(Offscreen)
What news do you bring Severus?

SNAPE
(Offscreen)
The Order of the Phoenix intends to move Harry Potter from his current place of safety on Saturday at nightfall.

We see a hand reach out for Nagini as she slowly moves up the arm and we see our first look at LORD VOLDEMORT as she wraps herself around his neck. Sitting beside him is SEVERUS SNAPE

VOLDEMORT
Saturday…

There is a shuffle and Voldemort looks over at BELLATRIX LASTRANGE who is sitting beside NARCISSA, LUCIUS, and DRACO MALFOY.

BELLATRIX
My lord, do you think it safe to trust Severus.

VOLDEMORT
Ah yes my dear Bellatrix, he has earned my trust yet again. Lucius…

LUCIUS
Yes, my lord.

VOLDEMORT
Give me your wand.

Lucius glances sideways at as she Narcissa puts her arm around Draco and pulls him closer to her as Voldemort says this.

LUCIUS
My…my wand my lord?

VOLDEMORT
Yes Lucius….

Lucius slowly hands his wand over to Voldemort as he takes it and examines it.

VOLDEMORT
Yes…yes…this shall do well.

There is crying heard off screen and the camera pans back to show the whole entire table full of Death Eaters and a body slowly revolving over the table up side down.

VOLDEMORT
I think Nagini is hungry now…

The camera is now in the POV of the person hanging above the table. Voldemort points the wand directly at the screen.

VOLDEMORT
AVADA KADAVRA!

The spell flies at the screen and the screen flashes GREEN as the title ‘HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS’ appears. The title hovers for a second and there’s a flash as we’re taken too…

INT. THE DURSLEYS-HARRY’S ROOM-NIGHT

HARRY POTTER is standing looking out of his window. He sighs and turns around and we see that the room is empty and all of his belongings are packed. HEDWIG hoots in her cage and Harry walks over to it.

HARRY
It’s too dangerous to let you out right now Hedwig. But we should be out of here soon and you’ll be able to fly as much as you want.

He smiles and strokes Hedwig on the beak and turns around and sits on his bed. He picks up the DAILY PROPHET that’s beside him and opens it up and we see a picture of Dumbledore smiling up at him and beside him it says ‘Albus Dumbledore Remembered’ Harry reads through it and his eye catches the name in AKNOWLODEMENTS: BATHILDA BAGSIDE. GODRICS HOLLOW.

HARRY
Look Hedwig. This person’s from Godrics Hollow…. the same place my parents were killed. Wonder how she knows Dumbledore….

Harry sighs and closes the newspaper.

INT. THE DURSLEYS-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to VERNON, PETUNIA, AND DUDLEY DURSLEY standing in the living room with all their bags packed. Harry is standing in front of them with all of his belongings behind him as we join in the middle of the conversation.

HARRY
This is for your own good and you know it. It’s not safe here and if you don’t leave right now Voldemort will probably kill you all to get to me.

VERNON
Now you listen here boy, if this is some crazy plot to get this house…

HARRY
I’ve already got a house, my godfather left me one, and do you seriously think I’d want this place. What for do I presume, the happy memories?

PETUNIA
Don’t you dare….

HARRY
There’s no time for this. If you want to stay then feel free! You know where to meet members of the Order and they will escort you to somewhere safe, but if you’d rather stay here….

DUDLEY
We want to go.

VERNON
Dudley?

HARRY
There you go! Now it’s best if you leave…now. They’re waiting for you.

VERNON
Well then…I guess this is good-bye then, boy.

PETUNIA
Are you ready Diddy?

DUDLEY
Before we go…
(He walks up to Harry)
I never got to say….well…thank you. You saved my life.
(He reaches out his hand and he and Harry shake hands.)

HARRY
Blimey Dudley, did the dementors blow a different personality into you?

DUDLEY
Dunno, See you Harry!

They all look at Harry one last time and precede to walk out of the house with their things. Petunia turns back one last time and closes the door behind her. He stares at the door for a second and walks over to where Hedwig cage is sitting in the living room and sits down on the couch.

HARRY
So I guess this is the last time we’re going to see this place Hedwig. So many memories…rarely any of them are pleasant.
(He looks at the Cupboard door under the stairs)
I used to sleep under there Hedwig, you never knew me then. It looks so small now….

There is a sound made in the kitchen that makes Harry jumps up. He pulls out his wand and walks slowly into the kitchen.

INT. DURSLEYS-KITCHEN-MOMENTS LATER

Harry walks into the kitchen and see’s HAGRID smiling down at him.

HAGRID
All righ’ Harry? Ready fer the off?

Following behind him is HERMION, RON, FRED, GEORGE, MAD EYE, MR. WEASLEY, TONKS, LUPIN, KINGSLEY, MUNDUNGES FLETCHER, BILL, AND FLUER all smiling at him except Mundunges who looks frightened.

HARRY
Wow, I wasn’t expecting this many of you.

MAD EYE
Change of plan…

HARRY
Well it’s great to see you all…well..except…
(He looks at Mundungus)
Who are you?

MUNDUNGUS
Oh um…

MAD EYE
Mundungus Fletcher…a ruddy coward like I’ve ever known, but he’s the one who came up with this great idea…

HARRY
What idea?

MAD EYE
Well your mothers charm will only break under two conditions: when you come of age or you no longer call this place home. So this time, when you leave, there’ll be no going back and the charm will break the moment you get outside it’s range…

KINGSLEY
The one thing we’ve got on our side is that You-Know-Who doesn’t know we’re moving you tonight.

TONKS
You’ll be going to my parents Harry, once you’re within the boundaries of the protective enchantments we’ve put on the house, you’ll be able to Portkey to the Burrow.

HARRY
Won’t it be kinda obvious where we’re going? I mean there are fourteen of us flying towards your parents….

MAD EYE
Ah yes and here is the key to the plan. There will be seven Harry Potters moving through the skies tonight, each of them with a companion, each pair heading for a different safe house.

HARRY
But..
(Moody plucks a piece of Harry’s hair out of his head)
Ow!

MAD EYE
Granger! You’ve got the Polyjuice potion.

HERMIONE
Here it is sir…

MAD EYE
Good. Now all seven Harry Potter line up over there.

Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, and Fluer all walk to to the other side of the kitchen and line up. Mad Eye pushed Mundungus forward and he reluctantly joins them.

HARRY
This is mad….

FRED
Well, none of us really fancy it Harry.

GEORGE
Imagine if something went wrong and we were stuck as specky, scrawny gits forever!

HARRY
Funny….

Mad Eye hands each of them a small container filled with polyjuice poition.

MAD EYE
All together then.

They all take a big gulp of the drink. All of a sudden all of their features start to change into Harry. Harry stares in disbelief as now there are 7 other Harry Potter’s standing in front of him.

FRED AND GEORGE
(They look at each other)
Wow…we’re identical!

HERMIONE
Harry your eyesight really is awful!

MAD EYE
Great…now Harry you will go with Hagrid on Sirius’s old bike. The Death Eaters will expect you to be on a broom.

EXT. DURSLEY’S BACKYARD-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to everyone on their respected item of transportation. Harry looks around nervously.

HARRY
Hagrid, are you sure this is safe.

HAGRID
Don’ worry ‘arry, there are a few tricks on this bike if anythin ‘appens.

MAD EYE
Good luck, everyone! See you all in about an hour at the Burrow. On the count of three. One…two…THREE!!!

Harry grasps on to Hedwigs cage in his lap as the bike starts and everyone takes off into the night sky. They rose into the sky and then suddenly out of knowhere they were surrounded by atleast thirthy hooded figures circles around them. Flashed of green light starts to fly throughout the air as the Death Eaters start throwing spells at the Order. Hagrid turns the bike sharply to avoid a spell and the others split off into separate directions. As the bike turns to the side Harry’s broomstick and Hedwig’s cage both fly out. Harry manages to grab Hedwigs’ cage then BOOM a spell hit’s Hedwig and she lands on the bottom of her cage dead.

HARRY
No…NO!

The motorbike zooms ahead forward and Harry holds the cage close to his chest.

HARRY
Hedwig…Hedwig!!

The scene then shifts to Moody and Mundungus flying quickly avoiding spells. Then all of a sudden Voldemort appears and he’s FLYING towards them quickly.

MUNDUNGUS
Oh my..he can fly..HE CAN FLY MOODY!!!

MAD EYE
Nose down Fletcher, he has to believe you’re Harry…

MUNDUNGUS
No…no I didn’t sign on for this…

VOLDEMORT
Avada….

MUNDUNGUS
(Whispers)
No…

VOLDEMORT
Kadavra!

As the green light shoots out of his wand Mundungus Apparates off of the broom stick and BOOM Mad Eye is hit with the spell and falls off of his broom. Voldemort sneers and apparatus in the middle of the air. The scene shifts back to Harry and Hagrid still dodging spells in the air. Harry is throwing stunning spells back as Hagrid turns.

HARRY
There’s to many of them….

HAGRID
This’ll do it Harry, hold on tight!

Hagrid pushes a purple button and SWOOSH a loud roar occurs and white-hot and blue flams come bursting out of the exhaust sending the bike speeding away. A death eater sways to avoid the fire. Harry looks down to notice that the sudden speed has caused the sidecar to sway and it was coming apart from the bike and then CRACK it broke away. Harry quickly pulls out his wand….

HARRY
Wingardium Leviosa!

The sidecar stopped momentarily and Harry looks up to notice the 3 Death Eaters closing in fast.

HARRY
Impedimenta!

The spell hits the Death Eater in the middle and as the sidecar starts to fall again. A spell comes flying at Harry who ducks to avoid it and hits his mouth on the side of the side car and then Hagrids hand grabs the back of his shirt and pulls him up onto the bike. Harry is now sitting back to back with Hagrid who continues to fly and dodge spells. Harry looks down at the falling sidecar.

HARRY
Confringo!

The spell hits the sidecar and it explodes which knocked the Death Eater closest to it off of his broom. The remaining Death Eaters continue to fly towards Harry and the hood of one flies off of his head revealing that he’s STAN SHUNPIKE.

HARRY
Stan Shunpike…no…
(Stan points his wand at Harry)
Expelliarmus!

STAN
(He smiles)
That’s him, it’s him, it’s the real one.

Both Death Eaters look at each other and vanish out of sight.

HAGRID
Harry, what’s happened? Where’ve they gone?

HARRY
I…I don’t know!

HAGRID
Hold on tight Harry, we’re nearly there….

Hagrid pushes the button again and SWOOSH it takes off again. The bike starts to dip a little and Harry grabs his scar and starts to scream out in pain. SWOOSH Voldemort appears suddenly flying quickly towards them. Hagrid turns sharply as Harry starts to send out stunning spells, knocking one of the Death Eaters off of their broom and then BANG a spell hits the motorbike and sends it spiraling through the air out of control. Spells are still flying around them as a death eater appears beside them.

HAGRID
NO!

Hagrid jumps off the bike and jumps on the Death Eaters broom on top of him and they both plummet towards the earth.

VOLDEMORT
Avada…

Harry lays his head down in defeat. His hand moves up and BAM a burst of golden fire shoots from his wand shocking Voldemort as it hits the wand cracking it as Voldemort is thrown back.

VOLDEMORT
NO!!!

Harry looks around and pushes the button and SWOOSH off again the bike goes. Harry turns around and sees Voldemort grab the wand of the nearest Death Eater. He points the wand at Harry and his eyes widen and SWOOSH he vanishes. Harry turns suddenly to try and control the out of control motorbike. He notices down on the ground Hagrid spread eagle on the ground.

HARRY
HAGRID!

Harry pulls hard at the handlebars and CRASH he slams into a muddy pond. He is thrown out and lands on his back and screen cuts to black.

INT. TONKS RESIDENCE-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

TED TONKS
(Through the darkness)
Harry…Harry Potter…

The screen fades back in from Harry’s point of view looking up at TED TONKS staring down on him. Harry jumps up suddenly and looks around. Ted hands him his glasses.

TED
You’re safe now, we now know the protective charms we put up are working. Voldemort and the Death Eaters couldn’t get through.

HARRY
Hagrid…

TED
He’s fine…don’t worry. The wife is doing final patches on him. That’s a pretty nasty fall you made.

HARRY
Are you Tonks father?

TED
Ted Tonks at your service Mr. Potter. The portkey to the burrow is waiting, you best be off soon. Do me a favor though, let us know if Nymphadora’s alright and if all is well tell her we’ll be there for the wedding next week.

HARRY
Wedding?

TED
Haven’t you heard? Dora and Remus are getting married. But enough of that later, lets get you to that Portkey.

EXT-THE BURROW-FRONT YARD-NIGHT-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a shot of THE BURROW up the hill. There’s a FLASH and Harry and Hagrid fall onto the ground. We see lights come on in the distance and figures running towards them. As Harry gets up and dusts himself off we see MRS. WEASLEY run up to him and wrap her arms around him.

MRS. WEASLEY
Oh Harry, my dear boy we were so worried. You were the only one’s who haven’t arrived yet, I didn’t know….

HARRY
I’m fine Mrs. Weasley…is everyone else okay?

MRS. WEASLEY
(She stares sadly at Harry)
I’m afraid not, come in dear. We’ll fill you in on everything.

INT-THE BURROW-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

Harry follows Mrs. Weasley into the living room. Everyone turns around. Harry notices GINNY and then notices George lying on the couch with a bandage around his head.

HARRY
What happened to him?

GINNY
Snape used the Sectumsempra spell on him, took his ear clean off.

Lupin jumps up and rushes to Harry, placing his hands firmly on his shoulders and looking into his eyes.

LUPIN
What creature sat in the corner the first time that Harry Potter visited my office at Hogwarts!

HARRY
A…a grindylow in a tank, wasn’t it?

LUPIN
It’s him
(he backs away from Harry and goes to sit beside Tonks)
We’ve been betrayed Harry. Voldemort knew that you were being moved tonight...someone…

HARRY
None of the Order would have told Voldemort we were moving tonight. He only caught up with me towards the end…

TONKS
He caught up with you?

RON
Blimey Harry how did you escape?

LUPIN
Not only that, but how did they figure out it was you.

HARRY
I…well…I don’t’ know really. I saw Stan Shunpike, remember he drove the Knight Bus. And I tried to disarm him instead of….well…he doesn’t know what he’s dong does he? He must’ve been Imperiused.

LUPIN
Harry, the time for Disarming is past! These people are trying to kill you! Atleast Stun if you aren’t prepared to kill!

HARRY
We were hundreds of feet up! Stan’s not himself and if I stunned him and he’d fallen, he’d have died the same as if I’d used Avada Kadavra!

LUPIN
You’re missing the point Harry…

HARRY
Am I? Correct me if I’m wrong but Expelliarmus saved me from Voldemort two years ago! I won’t blast people out of my way just because they’re there, that’s Voldemorts job!

They all stare at Harry who looks around the room and notices someone missing.

HARRY
Where’s Moody?

Everyone’s head drops at the mention of his name.

KINGSLEY
He didn’t make it Harry.

Harry turns around from all of them in the state of shock. Tears swelling up in his eyes.

HARRY
I can’t stay here. You’re all in danger while I’m here. I don’t want…

MRS. WEASLEY
Don’t be silly! The whole point tonight was to get you here safely.

HAGRID
Yer not goin’ anywhere…

MR. WEASLEY
Look at what we went through to get you here.

GEORGE
Yeah, what about my bleeding ear?

They all turn and look at George who’s just awakened.

FRED
Are you all right?

GEORGE
Yeah, I feel saint like actually. You see brother…I’m holy. Holey
(He points at his missing ear)
Get it?

FRED
With the whole wide world of ear related humor before you, you go for holey?

HAGRID
See ‘arry you can’t go

GEORGE
Ear, Ear!

FRED
That’s better!

HARRY
Fine I’ll…stay. Is it alright if I go to bed?

MRS. WEASLEY
Of course dear. Do you want me to fetch Hedwig for you, I’ll put her up with the other owls.

Harry eyes fell. He hadn’t thought about it and it seems everyone else in the room notices. Ginny and Hermione both start crying and Mrs. Weasley places her hand over her mouth in shock.

HARRY
Can I please…just go to sleep…

He turns and leaves everyone.
INT. THE BURROW-RON’S ROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Harry stirring in his sleep. Suddenly FLASH

INT. MALFOY MANOR-DUNGEON-NIGHT

There is a man shown on the floor crying out in pain. He looks up and we see that it is OLLIVANDER.

VOLDEMORT
(Offscreen)
CRUCIO!

Ollivander screams out in pain as Voldemort steps into view, clearly angry.

VOLDEMORT
You lied to Lord Voldemort Ollivander. You say that since Potter and I have the same core in our wands we won’t be able to fight one another, and that if I change wands I could destroy him.

OLLIVANDER
Please...no…I swear...I thought I thought

VOLDEMORT
Lies! You sought to help him, to help him escape…me….

OLLIVANDER
The connection…. exists only between your two wands….

VOLDEMORT
Really?
(He throws Lucius’s broken wand down in front of Ollivander)
Explain this then.

OLLIVANDER
No…I…I….

Voldemort points the wand at Ollivander again who starts to scream out in agony and FLASH

INT. THE BURROW-RONS ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

Harry jumps up as the scream is still being heard on scream. Harry is sweating and panting crazily.

INT. THE BURROW-ROOMS ROOM-MORNING’

The scene cuts to a shot of the Burrow in the morning. We then hear Hermione’s voice as the scene cuts to Harry sitting on his bed and Ron and Hermione are sitting across from him.

HERMIONE
You scar wasn’t supposed to do that anymore Harry! You mustn’t let that connection open up again, Dumbledore wanted you to close your mind. Don’t let him get inside your head!

RON
And you say your wand acted on it’s on to destroy him?

HERMIONE
That’s impossible, I’m sure Harry just reacted instinctively.

HARRY
No Hermione, I’m telling you it wasn’t a spell I recognized. Its like my wand had a power of it’s own….

There’s a knock on the door and Harry turns around and standing there with a birthday cake is Mrs. Weasley and Ginny.

MRS. WEASLEY, RON, GINNY and HERMIONE
Surprise!!

Ron pats him on the back and Hermione jumps up and hugs him before walking past Mrs. Weasley and Ginny out of the room.

RON
Didn’t think we’d forgotten your birthday did you mate?

HARRY
Yes, I’d forgotten myself. I’m seventeen!

RON
Which means you can do magic whenever you want now. Give it a go.

HARRY
Ok…
(Notices a book near Ron’s bed)
Accio Book!

The book flies towards Harry and he catches it and reads the title.

HARRY
Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches…what…

Ron quickly grabs the book and stuffs it under his pillow.

MRS. WEASLEY
Yes, well come on down stairs dear everyone’s waiting!

She turns to leave and they all walk out of the room. Before heading downstairs Ginny grabs him by the arm.

GINNY
We need to talk.

They both back away and Ron turns around as they both walk into Ginny’s room and closes the door.

INT. THE BURROW-GINNY’S ROOM-MOMENTS LATER.

The scene cuts to Ginny walking up to her window and looking out of it as Harry gazes around her room.

GINNY
(sighs)
Happy Seventeenth Harry.

She turns around and faces him.

HARRY
Thanks…ugh...nice view huh?

GINNY
I couldn’t think of what to get you. I know you, Ron, and Hermione are taking off soon on some mission and…I didn’t know what would be useful.

HARRY
Ginny….

GINNY
Nothing too big, because you wouldn’t be able to take it with you.
(She walks closer to him.)
So then I thought, I’d like you to have something to remember me by, you know…just in case you meet someone else while you’re off doing whatever.

HARRY
I think dating opportunities are going to be pretty thin to be honest.

GINNY
There’s the silver lining I’ve been looking for

Ginny reaches in and kisses Harry. They continue to kiss until the door opens and Ron walks in. They break apart and stare at him.

RON
Oh…I was um…sent to fetch Harry. Everyone’s waiting.

Ginny walks out of the room and turns around.

GINNY
Happy birthday anyway, Harry.

She gives a slight smile and walks down the hall. Harry tries to walk out but Ron blocks his way.

RON
You ditched her. What are you doing now, messing her around?

HARRY
I’m not messing her around Ron….

RON
She was really cut up when you ended it…

HARRY
So was I. You know why I stopped it, and it wasn’t because I wanted to…

RON
Yeah? But you go snogging her now and she’s just going to get her hopes up again if you keep groping her every chance you get…

HARRY
It won’t happen again okay?

RON
Right then…well…everyone’s waiting…

Ron turns to walk downstairs and Harry follows.

INT. THE BURROW-KITCHEN-MOMENTS LATER

Ron and Harry walks into the kitchen where Mrs. Weasley, Tonks, Lupin, Hagrid, Fred, George, Ginny, and Hermione are sitting.

EVERYONE
Happy Birthday Harry!!!

There’s a POP and confetti flies everywhere. Harry smiles as Lupin and Tonks both walk up and hug him.

MRS. WEASLEY
Come sit here Harry dear, it’s your special day.

HARRY
Thanks…I…you didn’t have to…

MRS. WEASLEY
Of course we had too…

LUPIN
You’re a man now Harry.

TONKS
We’re so proud of you.

They both look at each other and smile.

HARRY
Your dad tells me you two are getting married, congrats!

They both smile and kiss each other. Hermione, Mrs. Weasley, and Ginny all ‘Awww’ at this.

HAGRID
Seventeen, eh! Six years ter the day since we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?

HARRY
Yeah….

MRS. WEASLEY
(She hands Harry a watch)
It’s traditional to give a wizard a watch when he comes of age…it’s not much but

Harry jumps up and gives her a hug.

MRS. WEASLEY
(Smiling)
Well everyone grab a plate and dig in!

Everyone starts to pass plates around the table and the camera zooms in on Harry with a smile on his face as he watches his friends.

INT. THE BURROW-KITCHEN-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to everyone sitting at the table finishing up their dinners.

HARRY
This has been wonderful, thank you all.

LUPIN
We had to do this, seeing you’re taking a year off from school from what I hear.

IT goes silent and everyone looks up at Lupin. Mrs. Weasley has a worried look on her face.

MRS. WEASLEY
What?

HARRY
It’s nothing Mrs. Weasley, really…let’s just finish the meal…

LUPIN
You can’t do this alone Harry…

RON
He won’t be alone. Hermione and I are going with him.

MRS. WEASLEY
Going with…what is this?

HARRY
Dumbledore left us an assignment to do and we can’t talk about it okay. Just…just trust me…

MRS. WEASLEY
You’re just kids!

HARRY
Actually we’re not anymore. Besides it’s on Dumbledore’s orders Mrs. Weasley. If he says we can then you have to trust him….

Mr. Weasley walks in with a bag on his arm.

MR. WEASLEY
Harry, Ron, Hermione…could I speak to you three alone for a second.

MRS. WEASLEY
Arthur…?

MR. WEASLEY
Don’t worry Molly, we’ll be back soon.

The three of them get up from the table and follow Mr. Weasley out of the room.

INT. THE BURROW-SITTING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

Mr. Weasley walks into the sitting room and gestures the three of them to sit down as he opens the bag.

MR. WEASLEY
I have something for the three of you. Scrimgeour was supposed to do this himself but I guess he wasn’t feeling up to it.

HARRY
You won’t see me crying over that. What is it?

MR. WEASLEY
Dumbledore. He left all three of you something in his will.

RON
All of us?

MR. WEASLEY
(He pulls out a piece of parchment and begins to read aloud)
Where is it…ah here it is. To Ronald Bilius Weasley, I leave my Deluminator, in the hope that he will remember me when he uses it.

Mr. Weasley pulls out the Deluminator and hands it to Ron. Ron grabs it and examines it and he pushes the button and SWOOSH it sucked out the light from the nearest light.

RON
Cool…

He clicks it again and the light is restored.

RON
I wonder why he left me this…I was under the impression he never noticed me at all.

HERMIONE
Don’t be thick; Dumbledore was very fond of you. Who wouldn’t be?

They both look at each other and smile and Mr. Weasley clears his throat.

MR. WEASLEY
To Miss Hermione Jean Granger, I leave my copy of ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’ in the hope that she will find it entertaining and instructive.

He pulls out the book and hands it to Hermione who quickly flips it open and begins to read.

MR. WEASLEY
And finally, To Harry James Potter. I leave the Snitch he caught in his first Quidditch match at Hogwarts, as a reminder of the rewards of perseverance and skill.

He pulls out the snitch and looks at it.

MR. WEASLEY
Now this I must say is most peculiar.

HARRY
Why’s that sir.

MR. WEASLEY
Flesh memory.

RON
What?

HERMIONE
(Still reading)
Snitches carry enchantments by which it can identify the first human to lay hands upon it, in case of a disputed capture.
(She looks up and all of them are staring at her.)
What?

Mr. Weasley hands the Snitch over to Harry and drops it in his hand. Harry picks it up and stares at it but nothing happens.

MR. WEASLEY
There’s one last thing left for you Harry. It’s the sword of Godric Gryffindor.

All three of them stare up him in shock.

MR. WEASLEY
Unfortunately it wasn’t available; I’m not sure where it is exactly. Listen you three, I could help out on this mission…

RON
You need your job Dad.

MR. WEASLEY
Could you atleast tell me…

HARRY
No…I’m sorry Mr. Weasley but Dumbledore didn’t want us to tell anyone.

MR. WEASLEY
I understand
(He smiles weakly)
Well I’ll leave you three to your thoughts, I’ll grab me a piece of cake.

He bows and walks out of the room.

RON
Why do you think he left us all this?

HERMIONE
He couldn’t put in his will why he left us this; for fear that the Ministry would confiscate it, which they did. That still doesn’t explain…’The Tales of Beedle the Bard’ If these things are important enough to pass on right under the nose of the Ministry, you’d think he’d have let us know why…unless he thought it was obvious.

RON
He left Harry an old Snitch…what the hell was that about?

HARRY
Well we’ve yet to find out don’t you think.
(They both stare at him)
Don’t you remember how I caught the Snitch in my first game?

RON
That’s the one you nearly swallowed!

HARRY
Exactly!
(Harry pops the Snitch in his mouth and takes it out and writing appears on it and Harry reads it aloud as the camera zooms in on it.)
I open at the close. I wonder what’s that suppose to mean…

There’s a CRASH in the kitchen and all three of them look up and run quickly into the kitchen.

INT. THE BURROW-KITCHEN-MOMENTS LATER

Mrs. Weasley is holding her heart as a silver lynx patronus came running through the kitchen and lands on the table.

KINGSLEY
(Voice coming from the Patronus)
The Ministry has fallen. Scrimgeour is dead. They are coming.

Fear strikes the eyes of everyone in the room. They run to the window and see plenty of black apparitions appearing turning into Death Eaters approaching the Burrow.

MR. WEASLEY
Oh no…

LUPIN
Harry, Ron, Hermione…you must flee now. Get as far away as you can…don’t worry about us we’ll be fine.

Spells are thrown at the house as windows shatter. Hermione frantically grabs the boy’s hands as they run out of the back of the house. She closes her eyes and SWOOSH they are gone.

EXT. TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a busy street and SWOOSH Harry, Ron, and Hermione appear in an alleyway.

RON
Where are we?

HERMIONE
No time to explain Ron….
(She pulls out her small handbag and hands Harry his Invisibility cloak)

HARRY
Thanks…but…

HERMIONE
Undetectable Extension Charm. Tricky, but I think I’ve done okay. I managed to fit everything we need in here. I packed everything this morning…you know just in case….

RON
You’re amazing, you know that?

HERMIONE
(Smiles)
Thank you, now Harry put the cloak on!

HARRY
But everyone at the Burrow….

RON
It’s not the time to worry about everyone else mate. It’s you they’re after and we’ll just put everyone in more danger by going back.

Harry hesitates but throws the cloak over him and Ron and Hermione walk out of the alleyway and into the busy Muggle streets.

RON
So why’d you bring us here?

HERMIONE
What else is there? We can’t book rooms at The Leaky Cauldron and Grimmauld Place is out if Snape can get in there…

RON
But Dad told me that Moody put in spells just in case he showed up to stop him getting in, I’m sure it’s better than in this Muggle town. We have to go somewhere to find out what’s going on.

HERMIONE
We know what’s going on Ron! Voldemort’s taken over the Ministry, what else do we need to know?

RON
I dunno it’s just…

SWOOSH out of nowhere two figures apparate in front of them in black smoke. They stop dead in their tracks as they dark figures dressed in black slowly approach them. They pull out their wands…

HERMIONE
Run!

Hermione pulls Ron and the Invisible Harry into another alleyway in the nick of time as spells fly past them. The Death Eaters begin to chase them down the Alleyway throwing spells and rubble is blasted all around them. One Death Eater points his wand at Ron which sends out ropes flying at him. The wands wrap around Ron and he falls to the ground.

HARRY
(From under the cloak)
STUPEFY!

The spell shoots out but barely misses the death eater.

DEATH EATER 1
Expulso!

A strong spell flies out and BOOM the wall beside Harry explodes and the Invisibility Cloak flies off him as he avoids the tumbling wall.

HERMIONE
Petrificus Totalus!

BAM the Death Eater is hit square in the chest and falls down frozen as Harry grabs his wand and points it at the other one who’s about to attack Hermione.

HARRY
STUPEFY!

BAM the spell knocks the Death Eater hard into the wall and he falls out unconscious. Hermione runs over to Ron and points her wand at him.

HERMIONE
Diffindo!

SWISH the ropes fly out and Harry helps Ron up and then goes to fetch his Invisibility Cloak.

HERMIONE
Are you alright?

RON
Fine…

HERMIONE
How did they find us! What are we going to do?

RON
What are we going to do with them? You don’t think we should kill them do you?

HARRY
We…we just need to wipe their memories. It’s better like that; it’ll throw them off the scent. If we killed them it’d be obvious we were here.

HERMIONE
(She points her wand at the Death Eater)
Obliviate!

The spell hits the Death Eater in the head his eyes become unfocused and dreamy.

HARRY
Brilliant Hermione!

She points her wand at the other and does the same.

HERMIONE
How do you think they found us Harry? You don’t think you’ve still got your Trace on you…

RON
He can’t have, he’s seventeen now. What we need is a safe place to hide.

HARRY
Grimmauld Place.

HERMIONE
But Harry Snape….

HARRY
If he shows up I’d like nothing better to do than repay him for what he did. Besides where else is there?

Hermione and Ron look at each other and the scene cuts to…

EXT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to a shot of Number 12 Grimmauld Place and SWOOSH Harry, Ron, and Hermione appear in front of it. They slowly approach the door and stand there for a moment.

HARRY
Well…here goes nothing.

He takes a deep breath and opens the door.

INT. NUMBER 12 GRIMMAULD PLACE-ENTRANCE

The camera shifts to inside of the house as we see Harry walking through the door. All three walk into the house and Ron closes the door behind him. They walk slowly up the hall until a familiar voice calls out…

MOODY
Severus Snape?

HARRY
We’re not Snape!

There’s a SWOOSH and Harry, Ron, and Hermione grab their mouths in pain for a second and another SWOOSH and it passes. Harry turns to look at them.

RON
Tongue Tying Curse that was, Moody must’ve set it.

Harry turns around and continues to walk and a dusty figure starts to form in front of them. Hermione grabs Ron’s arm as a figure of Dumbledore appears pointing at them.

HARRY
No! It wasn’t us! We didn’t kill you….

SWOOSH the cloud of dust explodes leaving them coughing.

RON
Do you think there’s anyone here? Or any more enchantments.

HERMIONE
Only one way to find out.
(She pulls out her wand)
Homenum revelio!

Nothing happens.

HERMIONE
That was a spell to reveal human presence, and there’s nobody here except us!

RON
And old dusty
(gesturing to where Dumbledore’s figure just was)

HARRY
Let’s get upstairs…
(He pauses and grabs his scar in pain)

RON
What is it?

HARRY
Nothing…I…

RON
Is it him? Did you see something. Is he at my place.?

HARRY
No I just felt angry, he’s really angry…

HERMIONE
Harry you’re supposed to be closing your mind…

HARRY
I know okay!

He turns his back on them as he closes his eyes in pain. Lord Voldemorts voice is heard over the screen

VOLDEMORT
You call me back to tell me that Harry Potter has escaped again! Lord Voldemort is not sure he will forgive this time.

There is a scream heard as Ron and Hermione both stare at him with fear in their eyes. The screaming suddenly stops as Harry opens his eyes. And a bright light shines in front of them.. Harry pulls out his wand as a weasel patronus appears out of the light as Mr. Weasley’s voice calls out.

MR. WEASLEY
Family safe, do not reply, we are being watched.

SWOOSH the patronus is gone. Ron gives a sigh of relief.

RON
They’re okay.

HERMIONE
That’s great news. Harry…are you okay?

HARRY
Yes, I’m fine don’t worry about me.

HERMIONE
Harry don’t let him into your mind! Otherwise Voldemort can plant false images in your head, remember Sirius…

HARRY
It’s over now Hermione, can you just drop it. Please.

HERMIONE
Well I think we should freshen up anyways. Let’s go upstairs and clean up. And don’t worry Ron I washed your undergarments yesterday…

RON
(Embarrassed)
Hermione….

Hermione and Ron proceed to walk upstairs slowly. Harry scratches his scar as he turns around to the spot the Dumbledore appeared, sighs, and follows.
