How about...? Ok, I really have no creative imagination for this. But I'm sure J.K. will think of some classic yet original.
Really? I thought it was better, if a little close to the cheap 'it was all a dream' ending. Harry gets to stay alive and since he's no longer a wizard there can be no more books.

I really need the Disney ending. I've spend way to much of my life obsessed with these books for it to be a totally dark ending.
I would love for: Harry to defeat LV, for him to become an offical part of the Weasley Family, he and Ginny to live next door to Ron & Hermione, and for Harry to get the postion of DADA teacher instead of Snape. That would make me happy. Oh and Neville and his little cactus find a cure for all of those in St. Mungo's with permanant spell damage, and he could be the hero we already know he is.

I think the best ending would be Harry failing all of his classes and having to stay at hogwarts another year!!! Lower grades = more books!!!

I think the best ending ever would be for Voldermort to die, Dumbledore to die, Harry, Hermione, Lupin and Snape to live.

I think Harry should become either Headmaster or an auror. Hermione should become an auror, shes smart enough and never rushes foolishly into anything.

If they do become aurors then further adult books could be made later on.

I think Snape will keep the potion masters job and still carry on moping about the DADA position. Now this is where it might get interesting, to see Snape have to grovel to Harry if Harry becomes the new headmaster at Hogwarts.

Lupin will possibly take the DADA job up once and for all, without anyone bothering that he is a werewolf.

Neville?

Now Neville, I think he might go on to teach Herbology at Hogwarts but I am not sure as to whether or not Neville will live through all of this, he could die.

I think that in the end Harry will defeat Voldermort but will also die. I know that this may not be a happy ending but in a way it will be happy foe Harry. If he dies then he will be reunited with his parents and Sirius. Also I don't think that Harry would be happy if he lived. If he lives then Harry would have to live with the fact that he killed someone, which would make him feel guilty and upset (even if he knows that Voldermort was evil). Harry does not seem like the type of person who could kill even if he knows the person is evil.
Also I'm sure that in the next two books other people who Harry cares about will die and Harry will feel like it's his fault.
So in a way with Harry dieing it will be sort of a happy ending, where Harry can at last rest and be with his family at last.

The only thing I really want to see is the LeStranges go BOOM.

Preferably by Neville.

I thought that at first as well: hey, let's have Harry die so he can be reunited with his parents and family. But then I realized that notion might be delving a little too much into spiritual/religious waters. Who's to say that Harry will be reunited with his parents after death? For those who don't believe in an afterlife, Harry's death will mean nothing more than the end of everything and therefore be greatly upsetting and disappointing. And honestly, I'm not sure J.K. is keen on sending out that message. HP just seems to me to be a series where the hero actually survives. But that's not to say other important characters will...

With that being said, I refer back to my original theory:
I'm not expecting a super happy ending, but there's no need for there not to be an uplifting one, and I think that will be the case in HP.

the most spifftastic ending would be for everyone, magic and muggle alike, to settle their differences over a nice vat of fondue...

all i can hope for is an ending that doesnt completely ruin fan fiction.....also to those neato dudes and/or dudettes who were saying that if harry dies then his parents will have died in vain i dont think thats completely correct....i think that if he does his hero thing then dies then all is good and well but then again i dont really like harry too much so he can just die anyway.....hehe

The perfect ending-

Harry and Draco defeating LV side by side
Ron getting the recognition he deserves
Hermione becoming head girl, then the first Mud Blood minister of magic
Lupin finding a nice girlfrined (ME!!) and Harry moving in with them
Neville curing his parents and becoming a great auror
Draco being forgiven for all wrong doing
Lucius being murdered by LV
Percy being murdered by Death Eaters
Ginny becoming very powerful and Harry's girl.

Yeahhhh, I could be happy with that!

Oh and Cho getting what she deserves!

what do you think?
As the first Chapter of the first book was "the Boy Who Lived", I think it would be rather nice for the final chapter in the final book to be entitled "The Man Who Lived" I really hope that Harry does kill Voldemort, but then goes on to lead a simple and uncomplicated life. Perhaps he could take over the Leaky Cauldren with Ginny Weasley (I would so like to see those two together) and produce 5 or 6 little Harries and Ginnies.

Just to add to that - he will also get his own Chocolate Frog Card being one of the greatest Wizards of all time who defeated the Late Great Dark Lord Voldermort.

I don't care for shipping, so if no-one ended up with anyone, that would be great.

Personally, I think the best possible ending is one that involves no loose ends. I don't want to be continuing to discuss aspects of the books for eternity; I'd rather JKR wrapped everything up nicely, explained everything we wanted to know and left it at that.

Yes, I could deal with some unfortunate deaths, a few marriages, a few people not quite being able to adjust to life after the war (*hem, hem, Harry*). But I want EVERY speculation on the COS forums answered when this is all done. We've made JKR the bloody richest woman in Britain and she's not done till she has answered every darned post here and given a personal review to every single fanfic!!!!!!!!! I don't think that's too much to ask for the galleons we've lined her vault with, eh?

I think the best ending should include:
- Voldemort and the DE being punished,
- the revealing of ALL character's backgrounds and lives,
- and the explaining off ALL clues and hints so that no end is left loose.

And I sincerely hope the *End* is NOT something like 'Harry conjured Gryffindor's sword and plunged it right through Voldemort's heart'... That would really be
