After the final battle I think Harry will be "OK" but nothing in his life will be settled. By this I mean:
1. He will defeat Voldemort
2. He will do well enough on his N.E.W.T.s to become an auror (if he wants to)
3. He will have other career options like being DADA teacher.
4. He will not have a love interest.

Remember, one of JRK's "big things" is imagination. This way we can all imagine what happens after the end. Everyone (well almost) can be pleased with the "end" that way. Plenty of books and movies leave the end to our imagination.

For example, "my" Scarlett gets Rhett back.

I've always seen Harry dying in the end. Sorry but I just can't see JKR leaving us all hanging there wondering 'wth happened to Harry?'

I think he'll get everything he ever wanted if he dies or not maybe in the end dying will be all he ever wanted?

And seen as she's only writing 7 books which cover Harry's Seven Yrs of Wizarding education it doesn't leave us to wonder much...

Harry dies is the best possible ending? Are you kidding? Why would you want that to happen? That's horrible! JK cannot do this to us. Everyone grew up with these books, even if you were 20 when you stated reading them. She can't kill him off and end the book with a word "scar." I think it's going to be something like: and the only reminder of Voldermort's actions was Harry's scar.

Or the book will go on and tell the story what happened to Harry after Hogwards, and then he dies or lives forever!! yay go Harry

edit: oh and about the dream, it's a long dream
I wouldn't want him to wake up under the stairs. Maybe he'll wake up in his parents' house and the go to his first year at Hogwards. Or, maybe he is not going to be a wizard.

The perfect ending will be shocking. It doesn't matter who dies. As, long as I have that feeling where I want to skip forward, but know if I do all will be ruined I will be happy.

In my opinion the best possible ending for the last book would be for Harry to get a oportunity to defeat Voldemort and the only way do that is for, since Harry and Voldemort are so connected, is for Harry to sacrifice himself. It would be even better if was about to kill someone like Dumbledore and if Harry didn't sacrifice himself Voldemort would surly triumph with his terrible deed. So Harry decides to kill himself to save others that he loves.

I would like at the end to see what the future is for all the charactors e.g what they are doing with their lives.

Who lives/dies
What jobs do they do
Who is married/kids

Voldemort will be killed by Harry. Due to the precautions he has taken "against death" (book four) he will be come a ghost. Nick tells us that being a ghost is "neither here, nor there", thus, it is worse than death. He will become Slytherin's ghost. Why do you think the Bloody Baron is so bloody? He was the last great dark wizard.

Ron will marry Hermione, and Harry will do a luke Skywalker and stay single and mysteriously sad. Ginny will hook up with Neville.

And, JK will write 3 more books about Harry and Hermione at Auror school. Ron will play quittich for england.

Voldemort will be defeated.

Over 60% of Hogwarts staff survive.

Over 50% of the DA survive.

Over 30% of the Order survive.

Over 10% of LV's army survives and has not been imprisoned.

McG, the twins, Lupin, Snape, Draco, the Creevey brothers, Luna, and Neville survive the war.

Bellatrix, Wormtail, Umbridge, Macnair, and Percy are killed in the war.

Hogwarts will be attacked, but will survive the battle.

Mabie the best ending could be that Ron Sacraficies himself like he did in the chestgame of PS/SS :S
Hermione and Harry (finally) realise they have feelings for each other and Hermione and Harry are the ones at the end fighting off Voldemort he goes for Hermione but harry distacts him and chooses to sacrifice himself for the love of Hermione and the rest of the world yet he kills Voldemort and then Hermione is pleading with Harry just to hold while she gets helf, hes near death himself and tell Hermione that he loves her and the reader is left wondering wether he died or lived with Hermione..
Can people guess im a Harry/Hermione shipper?

I think the ending of harry potter will be that Dumbledore gets killed bt Voldemort, and that makes Harry mad and goes after voldemort and they both will be killed. HArry will sacrafice himself for the rest of the world like his mother did to him.

I think all of the order will die. Very sad
I think some of the teachers will die, but not many

the best possible ending would be for Harry, Hermione, Ron and Ginny all to live and for H/G and R/Hr to end up together!

I always thought Harry would die at the end, in taking out Voldemort, saving someone else's life, etc; obviously it would be terribly sad, but it's his destiny. He was marked for this when he was a baby. His parents died to save him and they'd want him to be happy, as people have said above, yes, but they knew about the prophecy, didn't they? If so, they knew they were saving not just their son, but the potential future of their world. I think the main storyline is bigger and bleaker than personal family stuff, and Harry dying would be a suitable ending.

However, if Harry DOESN'T die, I have a theory that he and Voldemort will somehow cancel each other out. For example, the shared/transferred powers will combine and blow up the mythic/iconic/hero/whatever you like to call them identities, leaving an old, lonely man and a boy who used to have a scar.

But that's reckoning without Neville - I'm a firm believer in the new shiny scary fighty Neville. He may or may not be The One, but he's going to be very important. Yay Neville!

Theorising aside, the best theory will be the one that JKR writes (particularly if it's edited a bit more carefully than OotP was). I couldn't hope to compete with her ingenuity...

In the End i want Snape and Harry to drop there hating for eachother and shake hands, and then for Harry to turn around to Hermione and say "i've waited to do this a long time" and kiss hermione. Dumbledore will have died but took with him 80 percent of the death eaters with him. Sirius gets his name cleared and is found in the middle of Alaska. And then a HUGE party.

Sirius is found in the middle of Alaska? Sounds all happy but not very practical!

I think a good ending would be Harry dying I don't know why! I love the Boy Who Lived! But I think Harry would die happy...I don't know why. I just have a feeling.

Personally, my best ending would be Harry and Voldy killing one another after a long and gruesome war, leaving the survivors to rebuild a shattered world. Most of the OotP and DEs dead, several Hogwarts staff members dead, quite a few students (including Ron or Herminone) dead. Bellatrix, Snape and Draco would all survive because I like them, but I'm honestly not holding out hope for Bella. Sure, it's depressing and angsty, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that...

Alternatively, Harry survives, becomes DADA teacher, and is killed on the 37th day of his first term by a rogue niffler, thus proving once and for all that the Defense Against the Dark Arts post is cursed beyond any hope of circumvention and forcing the abandonment of the subject as part of the offical curriculum.

I actually want Harry to survive and live out the rest of his life. If J.K. decides to kill Harry off, then that means the whole world is at Voldemort's grasp at last, which would be a very dark ending. I'm hoping Harry comes out of this alive, hopefully gets together with Hermione (I'm a H/Hr shipper, big deal), and settles for the continuation of his life. If Harry emerges victorious, I don't see it as being a grand one. The possible victory will come, but with many hardships. J.K. said that there would be many more deaths and she wrote the ending so that we'd have a sense of what happened after seven. I seriously don't the trio will be a trio after seven. Either way, if he survives or dies, I think one of the three will still end up dying. (I'm leaning toward Ron...) As for the other things I'd like to see is Neville surviving, Lupin surviving, Wormtail redeem himself, and for Harry to put Malfoy in his place at last.

NO, just because Harry dies DOESN'T mean the world is at Voldemort's grasp. It means Harry died in order to defeat Voldemort and save the world from him--a sacrifice.

The best possible ending for me would be for Harry to defeat Voldemort, without anyone on the good side dying, him becoming an Auror, and getting married to Luna Lovegood.
