CUT TO
INT. HOGWARTS – GRYFFINDOR BOYS’ DORMITORY – MOMENTS LATER
HARRY takes a drink of the golden FELIX FELICIS.

HERMIONE
How do you feel?

HARRY
(beaming)
Excellent! I don’t know how to describe it, it’s like…like I could do anything. Anything!
(beat)
Right, I’m going down to Hagrid’s.

HERMIONE
What?!

GINNY
Hagrid’s?

HERMIONE
Shouldn’t you be looking for Slughorn?

HARRY
Oh, I don’t have to; he’s at Hagrid’s.

GINNY
How do you know that?

HARRY
I just do. Trust me, I know what I’m doing.

HERMIONE and GINNY look…skeptical.

CUT TO
INT. HOGWARTS – ENTRANCE HALL – MOMENTS LATER
HARRY walks up to the front doors confidently but FILCH grabs him on the shoulder from behind.

FILCH
And where do you think you’re going, Potter?

HARRY
Just out for a walk.

FILCH
Not even you have the right to walk about the grounds when you please.

Suddenly a loud clattering and smashing from above distracts him.

FILCH
(walking off)
Ruddy poltergeist; I’ll deal with you later.

HARRY
Good luck.

CUT TO
HARRY walks downhill to HAGRID’s hut; he knocks on the door a couple of times over the sound of some off-key singing from HAGRID and SLUGHORN.

HAGRID
(opening the door)
Harry! You came!

HARRY
I did…

HAGRID
Well, come in, have a seat.

He opens the door and lets HARRY in.

SLUGHORN
Ah, Harry!

HARRY
Professor Slughorn; what is all this?

HAGRID
Oh, I thought ya knew; Aragog’s passed away.

HARRY
(sitting down)
Aragog? You mean that giant spider you kept in the forbidden forest?

HAGRID
That’s him. He’s been sick for a while.

SLUGHORN
Yes, terrible tragedy. Acromantulas are such marvelous beasts, and their venom is…so rare.

HAGRID
You know, Harry, he always liked you, Aragog.

HARRY
You know, I’d gotten that impression!

SLUGHORN
Here, shall we have a drink, toast the creature?

HAGRID
I’ll drink to that!

SLUGHORN takes three glasses and pours some mead into each and they all raise them in a toast.

SLUGHORN
To Aragog!

HARRY & HAGRID
Aragog!

HAGRID and SLUGHORN drink theirs right down.

HAGRID
Would you believe I’d had him since he was just a baby, used to keep him in a cupboard up in the castle until…

SLUGHORN
That is fascinating. You know, I always believed that acromantulas…

HARRY looks over and refills both of their glasses by tapping the rim with his wand.

SLUGHORN
…But actually I was just informed – oh, look there, my drink’s refilled! This calls for another toast then, doesn’t it! To Hogwarts, yes?

HAGRID
I’ll drink to that!

HARRY, HAGRID, & SLUGHORN
To Hogwarts!

Again HAGRID and SLUGHORN chug their drinks down and HARRY doesn’t touch his.

SLUGHORN
You’re rather quiet, Harry.

HARRY
Oh, well…you know, I just don’t know what to say, I’m just so overcome by…grief.

SLUGHORN
Ah, of course.

HARRY
Yeah; more mead then? Shall we use it up?

HARRY leans over to refill.

CUT TO
INT. HAGRID’S HUT – A WHILE LATER
HARRY is slumped back in his chair as HAGRID and SLUGHORN – neither of whom can quite keep their head up now - start on their next round.

HAGRID
(laughing)
And so I said to him, I said to the boy, “you have to stroke the spine, of course!”

SLUGHORN laughs.

HAGRID
You remember that, Harry?

HARRY
Yeah, yeah.

HAGRID
Well then – to Harry Potter!

SLUGHORN
Yes that’s right, to Parry Otter! The Chosen Boy Who…well, something of that nature.

HAGRID
And to Lily and James Potter – two finer, braver wizards you’ll never find!

HARRY & SLUGHORN
Hear hear!

SLUGHORN
The wizarding world misses them greatly.

They drain their glasses; HAGRID then passes out, his head falling on the table with a thud.

SLUGHORN
Oh dear, is he alright?

HARRY
He’ll be fine, don’t worry about him.

HAGRID begins to snore.

HARRY
There, see?

SLUGHORN
Ah; well, sad night, sad night.

HARRY
It is.
(beat)
Did you know my father died first?

SLUGHORN
Pardon me?

HARRY
Yeah, Voldemort killed him and then he moved onto my mother. And she didn’t need to die, she could’ve run.

SLUGHORN
(whispered)
She could have?

HARRY
She begged him not to go near me, but he was going to kill me no matter what.

SLUGHORN
I think that is enough.

HARRY
And so she let herself die, right there.

SLUGHORN
That’s enough! Good lord, I don’t need to hear about such things! I’m just an old man…

HARRY
I’m sorry; I forgot, she was your favorite student, right? You liked her?

SLUGHORN
(tears in his eyes)
I can’t imagine that anyone would meet Lily Evans and not like her: she was smart, funny…it was the most horrible thing when I found out.

HARRY
But you won’t help her son? She gave me her life, and you won’t give me a memory?

SLUGHORN
It’s not a question of if I want to help you, I do, but you have to understand what you ask of me -

HARRY
Professor, Dumbledore and I need that memory; I’m The Chosen One, I have to defeat Voldemort!

SLUGHORN
But this is more than I am prepared to give –

HARRY
You don’t want to get rid of him then? The wizard who killed Lily Evans?

SLUGHORN
Of course I do!

HARRY
Are you afraid he’ll find out you helped me? Are you afraid he’ll come after you? Be brave, Professor, be brave like my mother.

As SLUGHORN considers this, HARRY takes an empty vial out from his pocket and places it between them.

SLUGHORN
I’m not proud, I…I think I have done a great deal of damage…

HARRY
Anything you might’ve done would be canceled out if you gave me that memory.

SLUGHORN takes his wand, places it at his temple, and removes a long strand of memory, placing it into the vial with a trembling hand.

SLUGHORN
Just…don’t think too harshly of me after you see it.

CUT TO
INT. HOGWARTS – DUMBLEDORE’S OFFICE – MOMENTS LATER
HARRY runs past the stone gargoyle up the staircase to DUMBLEDORE’s office and bursts in without knocking.

HARRY
Professor! Professor Dumbledore, I’ve got it, I’ve got Slughorn’s memory!

DUMBLEDORE appears upstairs and looks over the banister at him.

DUMBLEDORE
Well done, Harry! Let’s see it then.

CUT TO
INT. HOGWARTS – POTIONS DUNGEON
Again, we see the 16-year-old TOM RIDDLE staying behind as the rest of the class leaves around him and calls or waves goodbye.

SLUGHORN (O.S)
Avery, Lestrange, if I don’t see those essays on my desk tomorrow it’s detention for you both!

RIDDLE, wearing MORFIN’s ring, twists it absently and approaches SLUGHORN’s desk.

SLUGHORN
Look sharp, Tom, you don’t want to be late, and you a Prefect. What is it?

RIDDLE
Well, sir, I was wondering…I was wondering if you could tell me anything about horcruxes.

SLUGHORN
Did you say…horcruxes?

RIDDLE
Yes, I did.

SLUGHORN
Project for Defense Against the Dark Arts, is it?

RIDDLE
Not exactly, no. I came across the term while reading and didn’t quite understand it.

SLUGHORN
Well, good luck finding any information on horcruxes here, Tom; this is very dark stuff, very dark indeed.

RIDDLE
Then you do know all about them? I mean, if you can’t tell me, I won’t push the matter, but I figured if anyone could, it would be you.

SLUGHORN
(fiddling with his tie)
I suppose it can’t hurt to give you an overview…just so you know. But understand, I would not trust any other student with the information I am about to give you. A horcrux is an object in which a witch or wizard has concealed…a part of their soul.

RIDDLE
I don’t understand; how does that work?

SLUGHORN
You split your soul, so that part of it is contained within this object, and, even if the individual’s body is maimed or destroyed, they cannot die.

RIDDLE
And how do you split your soul? I realize there would be a spell, of course –

SLUGHORN
Surely you realize, Tom, that there are few who’d want this sort of life; the act of tearing one’s soul apart is against nature, it’s a great violation – death would, in fact, be preferable.

RIDDLE
But how do you do it?

SLUGHORN
Through the ultimate act of evil: by committing murder. Murder rips the soul, rips it beyond repair. It’s a vile and terrible thing, a horcrux.

RIDDLE
Oh, I don’t mean to bother, sir.

SLUGHORN
No, not at all, it’s natural to be curious about such things; I would expect no less than the highest intellectual curiosity from you, Tom.

RIDDLE
There’s one last thing I want to ask then: can you only split your soul once? Wouldn’t more horcruxes make you even more powerful? For instance, isn’t seven the most powerfully magical number?

SLUGHORN
Merlin’s beard! Seven?! Isn’t it bad enough to think of killing ONE person, but to rip the soul into SEVEN pieces!

SLUGHORN looks at RIDDLE as if seeing him for the first time.

SLUGHORN
But of course, this is all hypothetical, isn’t it?

RIDDLE
Of course it is.

SLUGHORN
Do me a favor: keep this all between us. If Dumbledore, for instance, knew that we had discussed horcruxes…

RIDDLE
I won’t tell anyone. Thank you, Professor.

DUMBLEDORE (O.S.)
Thank you, Harry.

CUT TO
INT. HOGWARTS – DUMBLEDORE’S OFFICE – A MOMENT LATER

DUMBLEDORE
What we have just seen…proves the theory under which I have been working.

HARRY
So you think then that Voldemort had a horcrux hidden somewhere when he…well, not died. And that’s why he survived, a bit of his soul was safe?

DUMBLEDORE
A bit…or more. You saw it yourself, what Voldemort wanted was to know how one would create multiple horcruxes; he was ready and willing to murder however many he deemed fitting in his bid for immortality, and he knew that no book would give him the information he wanted.

DUMBLEDORE pauses to gather his thoughts.

DUMBLEDORE
Four years ago, I received certain proof that Voldemort had made at least one horcrux.

HARRY
Where? How?

DUMBLEDORE
You handed it right to me, Harry.

The image of HARRY picking up TOM RIDDLE’s old, weathered black diary flashes onscreen as DUMBLEDORE announces:

DUMBLEDORE
Tom Riddle’s diary: the one that opened The Chamber of Secrets, and possessed Miss Weasley.

HARRY
I’m not sure I –

DUMBLEDORE
What you described to me that night was unlike anything I’d ever heard before: a mere memory beginning to take corporeal form, a memory draining the life out of the girl into whose hands it fell? No – no, it was far more sinister than that.

HARRY
So what I destroyed, it was actually a piece of his soul?

DUMBLEDORE
If I’m not mistaken. What has long concerned me is the careless way Voldemort treated this object: Lucius Malfoy was the one who dropped the diary into Ginny Weasley’s cauldron, and I find it rather suspect that the so-called Dark Lord would entrust such a valued item to anyone. And let’s not forget that this diary was meant as not just a safeguard but a weapon as well. Terrifying as it seems, this appears to be an indication that Voldemort succeeded in making more than one horcrux – and perhaps several.

HARRY
So basically we’re just getting further away from stopping him?

DUMBLEDORE
On the contrary. We are now closer to stopping Lord Voldemort than ever before.

HARRY
Then what next?

DUMBLEDORE
Next? Next are the words “isn’t seven the most powerfully magical number?” I think the idea of a seven-part sould would have been very appealing to Voldemort, wouldn’t you agree?

HARRY
Six horcruxes? They could be anywhere, they could be anything, the could be invisible!

DUMBLEDORE
Then you appreciate the magnitude of our problem. Although, I believe the number has brought down to four; you have destroyed one, the diary, and I have destroyed another.

DUMBLEDORE raises his disfigured right hand.

HARRY
You have? What was it…wait…

The image of RIDDLE twisting the black ring with the cracked stone in the center flashes onscreen as HARRY realizes:

HARRY (O.S.)
The ring Morfin wore, the one Voldemort took?

HARRY
The one you had on when we met to see Slughorn, that was it, wasn’t it? And what’s happened to your hand is a curse from trying to take it in the first place?

DUMBLEDORE
You’re much too clever, Harry; I must admit I was looking forward to finally telling you the story myself. What’s important, though, is that it is gone now.

HARRY
Where did you find it?

DUMBLEDORE
At the Gaunt home; I have, as you know, made it a priority to learn as much about Lord Voldemort’s past as I can.

HARRY
Couldn’t the rest of the horcruxes be, I don’t know, anything? Tin cans? Old bottles?

DUMBLEDORE
What you’re describing is a portkey; no, Voldemort always liked to collect trophies. His strong will to prove himself, to carve out a more ‘spectacular’ legacy, he would be drawn to items with a unique significance in the magical world. The diary that proved he was the heir of Slytherin, the ring that had been handed down from one "pureblood" line to the next, from Slytherin to Peverell…

HARRY
And you think you know what the others are?

DUMBLEDORE
I have been searching for some time, for objects that have a grandeur in themselves, ones that may have disappeared over time.

The image of the old locket with the raised S falling onto RIDDLE’s bed flashes onscreen.

HARRY (O.S.)
The locket!

HARRY
Slytherin’s locket, he had it at the orphanage!!

DUMBLEDORE
That is EXACTLY what I had in mind.

HARRY
So, might he have tried to use things from all the Houses?

DUMBLEDORE
I was unable to procure any memories from this period, but Tom Riddle spent a short time after his graduation working at Borgin & Burke’s, procuring antiques from witches and wizards willing to sell them. In this way, he might’ve been able to capture the last remaining Hufflepuff heirloom, a cup with the House’s insignia.

HARRY
And the others?

DUMBLEDORE
Well, the last tangible link to Godric Gryffindor is resting in that case over there.

He motions to the glass case at the rear wall, containing the sword of GRYFFINDOR.

DUMBLEDORE
I cannot answer for Ravenclaw’s.

HARRY
There’s one left.

DUMBLEDORE
I wonder what you’ll think when I tell you that I have been intrigued by the behavior of Voldemort’s snake, Nagini.

The image of the great snake slithering down the corridor to the HALL OF PROPHECY flashes onscreen.

HARRY
You can use animals?!

DUMBLEDORE
It is inadvisable, but yes. It seems to me that he has a very irregular control over her, and considering that Slytherin’s symbol was a serpent, he’s probably as fond of Nagini as it is possible for him to be.

HARRY takes a pause to let this in before asking:

HARRY
When a horcrux is destroyed, can he feel it?

DUMBLEDORE
An interesting question; I think most likely Voldemort’s very soul is so mutilated that he can’t. That is, until the last of him is vanquished. Perhaps then, he will.

HARRY
So if we destroy them if we destroy all the horcruxes -

DUMBLEDORE
Voldemort could be killed.

HARRY
And just how am I supposed to do that? Because it has to be me, and the prophecy said I had power The Dark Lord knows not, which I DON’T!

DUMBLEDORE
But you do! Harry, after all that you have been through, after everything you’ve seen, you can still, after all, love.

HARRY
Great, I can love!

DUMBLEDORE
Do not underestimate this.

HARRY
But it just comes down to the same thing! I have to kill him or he kills me, no matter what!

DUMBLEDORE
You are placing too much store in the prophecy! Don’t you see, it only matters because Voldemort acted on it, nothing more. The remarkable person who stands before me would still be standing before me if Voldemort had murdered Lily and James Potter with or without a prophecy!

HARRY
But –

DUMBLEDORE
Let me put it this way: it is the difference between being dragged into a fight kicking and screaming and walking to your fate with your head held high.

HARRY
I understand. And so did my parents.

DUMBLEDORE
The enemy we fight does not. The reason we face this…this horror is that Voldemort, for all his ability, never possessed the wisdom to see that, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.

HARRY
Sir, the next time you find one…can I come?

DUMBLEDORE
Of course.
  


:0 i just read all that..i didn't know it would be so long.

its good though

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

HBP - first private lesson after the Burrow attack:



INT. HOGWARTS - DUMBLEDORE'S OFFICE - NIGHT

(Harry enters Dumbledore's office)

DUMBLEDORE
Harry, I'm glad to see you again.

(Cut to Harry sitting in a chair in front of Dumbledore's desk.)

DUMBLEDORE
I heard you had a tough holiday at the Burrow.

HARRY
I feel it's my fault that...

DUMBLEDORE
That it burned down? No, Harry, the fault was mine. I made a mistake by giving you permission to stay there. You are after all the chosen one, Harry.

HARRY
I don't get this. Why me? How can I kill the darkest wizard of all time?

DUMBLEDORE
Harry, you have the power Voldemort has not. You can love.

HARRY
Wow, I can love. Great.

DUMBLEDORE
Do not underestimate this.

HARRY
How can love stop him?

DUMBLEDORE
Voldemort fears love. When he possessed you last year and felt all your love, he couldn't handle it. He left your body as the weakest one and decided to never more penetrate your mind. He has to use other ways to get to you. You have got a really good change to beat him, Harry, especially now when you know his weakness.

HARRY
The prophecy said that one of us has to kill the other. I have not got much of a choice, have I?

DUMBLEDORE
The prophecy only matters because Voldemort acted on it, nothing more. He heard about a boy with powers he didn't know. You. He wanted to kill you, and is still trying to, because he fears you. If he didn't act he wouldn't had disappeared, your parents would be alive and you would be an ordinary boy. Nothing could've stopped him. Don't you understand? It's just a stupid prophecy. Not all, nor half of the prophecies you saw in the ministry have come true. You've got a choice, Harry. You don't need to act if you don't want to.

HARRY
But I want to act. He killed my parents, he killed Cedric and Sirius. Of course I want to kill him.

DUMBLEDORE
As I thought. I'll do my best to help you. Now, let me show you a new memory.


Please leave feedback I need to improve this.

This scene establish Harry's feeling about being the chosen one and it explains the prophecy properly.

When it comes to the character who over-heard the prophecy and told it to Voldemort (i.m. Snape), I mean they can explain that in the seven film. Otherwise it would be too much information given in one scene.

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

This is an extended version of a script a wrote earlier. The only difference; this time I included a bit about Voldemort's mother.

The Secret Riddle

Based on the novel and the film:


Int. Dumbledore's office - night:

(A close-up of FAWKES, cut to DUMBLEDORE looking at a broken diary and a ring. As he hears someone knocking on the door, he puts it away)

DUMBLEDORE
Come in!

(HARRY opens the door)

DUMBLEDORE
Harry, you got my message. Sit down, please!

(Harry is now sitting)

DUMBLEDORE
How are you?

HARRY
I'm good, sir.

DUMBLEDORE
Enjoying your classes?

(Harry nods)

DUMBLEDORE
Professor Slughorn told me you're extremely skilled in potions.

HARRY
Oh, I think he is exaggerating a bit.

DUMBLEDORE
Do you?

HARRY
Definitely!

(Dumbledore is smiling)

DUMBLEDORE
Now to the reason I summon you here tonight.

DUMBLEDORE (stands up and walks to his glass cabinet).
What you are looking at are memories. In this case about one individual. VOLDEMORT. Or as he was known then; TOM RIDDLE.

(Dumbledore picks up a bottle from his collection).

DUMBLEDORE
This is a peculiar memory of the day I first met him. I'd like you to see it if you would.

(Harry looks at Dumbledore, takes the bottle and walks to the pensieve. He fills the content into it on Dumbledore's permission. The black liquid flows. Harry's face plunges into the water, breaks the surface. The black liquid sinks and the memory shapes into a dark, dreamy city. An younger Dumbledore walks through the city.
Subjective perspective as young Dumbledore looks up at the Whool´s Orphanage).

MRS. COLE (V.O)
In all these years Tom has been here he has never once had a family visitor.

CUT TO:

Int. Orphanage – day:
(Mrs. Cole and Dumbledore walks up the stairs).

MRS. COLE
His mother gave birth to him here. Poor woman! She was weak and died immediately after she told me that the boy's name had to be Tom Riddle, for his father.

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
Interesting. How is he? Tom?

MRS. COLE
You will take him to your school whatever I tell you, right?

(Young Dumbledore nods)

MRS. COLE
He has not made any friends. It seems like he prefer to be alone. He is odd in a way. There have been incidents with the other children. Nasty things. But it's very hard to catch him. Once we took them out to the seaside, he showed a cave to some other children. Afterwards they were never quite right. He swore they had just gone exploring, but I am sure something weird happened inside.
Here we are.

(She knocks on the door twice).

MRS. COLE
Tom, you have a visitor.

(She opens the door, a little boy is sitting at a chair. No expression on his face).

(Young Dumbledore notices a drawing of a cave on Tom's desk next to some books).

CUT TO DUMBLEDORE SITTING ON HIS BED:

TOM RIDDLE
You are the doctor, aren't you?

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
No, I am professor Albus Dumbledore. I am here to offer you a place at Hogwarts school.

TOM RIDDLE
Is that a place for mad people?

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
No, absolutely not. Hogwarts is a magical school for those with special abilities.

TOM RIDDLE (curious)
Special abilities?

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
Yeah! You can do things, can't you Tom? Things the other children can't.

TOM RIDDLE
I can make things move without touching them, I can make animals do what I want them to without training them. I can make bad things happen to people who are mean to me. I can make them hurt. (Pause) What about you? Are you special too?

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
Yes, I am a wizard.

TOM RIDDLE
Prove it!

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
If you adress me as "sir" or "professor".

TOM RIDDLE
I am sorry, sir.

(Young Dumbledore smiles and Tom Riddle's wardrobe burst into flames. Tom Riddle looks anxious).

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
Open the wardrobe, Tom.

(Tom Riddle jumps to his feet. Opens the burning wardrobe, glances at a box. It doesn't burn).

TOM RIDDLE
How..?

(The wardrobe stops burning, unharmed).

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
All in good time, Tom. At Hogwarts you will be teached not only how to use magic, but how to controll it.
Now, show me what you hide in the box.

(Tom waits some seconds, takes out the box and opens it. Lots of ordinary things).

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
Stealing is something we don't tolerant at Hogwarts. You will return these things back to their owners with your apologies, Tom.

TOM RIDDLE
Yes, sir.

(Young Dumbledore rises and scrutinizes him. Tom Riddle does not meet his eyes)

YOUNG DUMBLEDORE
See you at Hogwarts then.

(Young Dumbledore walks away)

TOM RIDDLE
I can speak to snakes too.

(Young Dumbledore stops)

TOM RIDDLE
They find me, whispers things...Is that normal for someone like me?

(Young Dumbledore turns around as the fog grows thicker and thicker and the memory disolves).


INT. DUMBLEDORE'S OFFICE - NIGHT

(Harry's head emerges from the water in the pensieve. He looks shocked).

HARRY
Did you know then...

DUMBLEDORE
...that I'd just met the most dangerous, dark wizard of all time? No! If I had I...

(Dumbledore is in his own thoughs, glances at the pensieve. Sees Tom Riddle and a drawing of a cave. Dumbledore moves his wand over it. Harry notices the black liquid changes into a locket, then it forms into a woman screaming in pain when she gives birth at the orphanage.
Dumbledore dips his empty bottle into the water and catch the black liquid).

HARRY
Sir! Voldemort's mother...Why did she die after she gave birth to her son? Couldn't she had used magic to save herself?

DUMBLEDORE
Yes, I think so. Merope Gaunt was a skilled witch and actually a descendent of Salazar Slytherin himself. But she had no intention of saving herself and taking care of her only son. You see, Harry. Merope was in love with a muggle named Tom Riddle. She used to slip him love potions and one day she married him. Once her husband found out she was a witch he broke up with her and left her and his unborn son alone. Merope was heart broken. She stopped eating and became weaker and weaker. She saw no point of living anymore.

HARRY
But her only son.

DUMBLEDORE
Voldemort's mother wasn't as yours, Harry. Tom never got the chance to feel love.

Perhaps you noticed he was a collector? He felt connected to all sorts of objects, especielly trophies. They made him feel special. He was probably a bit lonely. Later on, he realized he didn't need any friends. As he grew up at Hogwarts he developed his powers and became extraordinary skilled and not to mention many teacher's favourite student. Can you guess one of them?

HARRY
Uhm...Professor Slughorn. You didn't bring him back to Hogwarts simple to teach potions, did you sir?

Dumbeledore
No, I did not.
Harry, I told you that professor Slughorn probably would try to collect you and I want you to...

HARRY
...let him collect me?

DUMBLEDORE
Exactly! Do your best, Harry.

(Dumbledore gives Harry a glance of trust, Harry nods).

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

Good job Noldus!

There are a few lines I personally feel don't work but overall I think it flows great and I think it would've made that scene have more meat to it.

Alright everyone. It's been a while! Since my laptop is out of order at the moment I won't be able to bring my Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 up yet. So I decided to try and do a one shot DH for fun.

Warning to all this isn't for the faint at heart. Alot is different and is excluded. Since it's one film only the important elements stay and shortcuts have be taken numerous times. Let me know what you guys think.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Screenplay by: Phrozenone
Based on the book by: JK Rowling

The Boy Who Lived:    


  The WB logo slowly comes towards the screen. Lightening flashes and breaks off pieces of the logo as the camera passes through the symbol. The camera descends out of the clouds over the village of GODRICS HALLOW. The camera closes in on a DARK FIGURE walking along the dark street. The word’s 17 years ago appear on the screen.

EXT. GODRICS HOLLOW-17 YEARS AGO-NIGHT

The hooded figure stops and stares at a house in front of him. We see a close up of his eyes as he smiles. Inside we see JAMES POTTER playing with a baby HARRY POTTER. He’s flying him through the air. LILY POTTER walks into the frame and kisses James and takes Harry. James kisses Harry and Lily exits. The figure pulls his hood back and it is VOLDEMORT. He reaches out and slowly opens the gate and continues forward. He points his wand at the door and BOOM it flies open.

INT. GODRICS HALLOW-POTTER HIDING PLACE-NIGHT

As he steps into the house JAMES POTTER runs into the hallway.

JAMES
Lily, take Harry and go! It’s him! Go! Run! I’ll hold him off!

James pulls out his wand and BOOM Voldemort knocks it out of his hand.

JAMES
LILY!!!

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM the spell hits James and he falls to the floor dead. We hear baby Harry crying upstairs. Voldemort looks up and leaps up the stairs in one motion. He walks towards the close bedroom door. He points his wand at a closed door and BOOM it flies open. Inside is LILY POTTER who is holding her son. At the sight of Voldemort she puts Harry into the crib and stands in front of him.

LILY
Not Harry, not Harry, please not Harry!

VOLDEMORT
Stand aside, you silly girl…stand aside now…

LILY
Not Harry, please no, take me, kill me instead….

VOLDEMORT
This is my last warning….

LILY
Have mercy…please…I’ll do anything….

VOLDEMORT
Stand aside, girl!

LILY
No!

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM a green light shoots out and hits Lily. She falls to the floor dead. Voldemort then slowly walks up to the baby who is looking up at him. He points his wand at Harry’s head.

VOLDEMORT
A prophecy said that you would be the one to defeat me and I am here to make sure that it is not so. Avada Kadavra!

SWOOSH the spell backfires turning Voldemort into nothing more than dust. He screams out in pain as the house around him starts to collapse. The dust flies out of the house screaming as the walls around start to tumble. We see the baby laying down as if he’s dead in the crip. The screen goes black.

EXT. GODRICS HALLOW

HAGRID (O.S.)
I hear sumin’…over der!

The scene cuts to HAGRID tossing aside the rubble. We hear a baby crying. He pulls back a large board that’s over the crib. He looks down and gently lifts the baby out of it.

HAGRID
Is alri little one…yer safe. I won’ let anything happen to yer.

The baby curls up in Hagrids arm. Hagrid smiles as he wipes the dirt off of Harry’s face.

HAGRID
Lil’ Harry’s okay Dumbledore!

The camera pans over to show ALBUS DUMBLEDORE walking up to Harry. He places his hand on Harry and runs his finger across the scar. His eyes widen and he looks up at Hagrid. The camera pans back upwards towards the sky.

MCGONAGALL (O.S.)
This boy will be famous, there won’t be a wizard in our world that won’t know his name.

We see a newspaper flying in the wind. It flies towards the camera and BOOM slams into it. On the cover we see a picture of Harry when he’s 11. The caption reads ‘THE BOY WHO LIVED’ The page turns to show him standing in front of OLLIVANDER. Harry takes the wand and a wind blows. The page turns to show Harry standing in front of the MIRROR OF ERISED. The page turns to show Harry stabbing TOM RIDDLE’S diary. The page then turns to show Harry and Sirius. The page turns again to show Harry and Voldemort facing off in the graveyard. The page then turns to show Harry standing in the Ministry of Magic with photagrophers all around him. Dumbledore walks up behind him and places his arm around him and the caption reads ‘HE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED RETURNS’ The page turns again to show Harry hiding under the Astronomy Tower. We see SEVERUS SNAPE hit Dumbledore with a spell knocking him off the tower. The page turns again to show a WHITE TOMB on the cover and the headline reads ‘DUMBLEDORE LAID TO REST ON HOGWARTS GROUNDS’ All of a sudden the fire begins to surround the newspaper. As it burns we see Voldemort’s face behind it. The camera pans back to show him sitting in front of a table.
  


The Dark Lord Ascending:    


  INT. MALFOY MANOR-NIGHT-PRESENT DAY

VOLDEMORT
17 years it’s been since that night. Years of failure on my part but now I know what must be done. It is I who must destroy Harry Potter once and for all.

The camera shifts to show a group of Death Eaters sitting down the long table including Snape, BELLATRIX LESTRANGE, DRACO MALFOY, NARCISSA MALFOY, LUCIUS MALOY, YAXLEY, WORMTAIL, DOLOHOV, and a few other death eaters all looking towards the head of the table at Voldemort.

VOLDEMORT
Any news on the boy Severus?

SNAPE
Yes my lord. The Order of the Phoenix intends to move Harry Potter from his current place of safety on Saturday at nightfall.

BELLATRIX
Do you honestly believe him my lord? I know Snape killed Dumbledore but I still don’t trust him…

VOLDEMORT
What better proof do I need that Severus does indeed serve me? Do you question my judgement Bellatrix?

BELLATRIX
No my lord…never….

VOLDEMORT
Good. Where do we lie within the Ministry Yaxley?

YAXLEY
We have several people planted within the Department of Magical Transport. If Potter Apparates or uses the Floo Network, we shall know immediately.

SNAPE
He will not do either. The Order is eschewing any form of transport that is controlled or regulated by the Ministry; they mistrust everything to do with that place.

Voldemort looks over at Lucius who looks away nervously. Narcissa holds onto his arm tightly and Draco is looking down.

VOLDEMORT
Why do the Malfoys look so unhappy with their lot? Is my return, my rise to power, not the very thing they professed to desire for so many years?

LUCIUS
Of course, my Lord. We did desire it….we do….

BELLATRIX
My Lord…it is an honor to have you here, in our family’s house. There can be no higher pleaser.

VOLDEMORT
That means a great deal, Bellatrix, from you.

She smiles at him with a look of longing in her eyes and we hear a whimper from the person rotating above the table.

VOLDEMORT
Wormtail! Have I spoken to you about keeping our guest quiet?

WORMTAIL
Yes..my…my…Lord….

The camera pans up to show CHARITY BABAGE rotating above the table. Tears are running from her eyes and she hangs suspended by what seems to be an invisible rope.

VOLDEMORT
Do you recognize our guest Severus? Draco? This is of course one of the teachers at Hogwarts…she taught the course…ah Muggle Studies am I correct?

He looks over at Draco who nods slightly and a smile draws across Voldemorts face.

CHARITY BURBAGE
Severus…please….please….

The camera now shows NAGINI slowly slithering past everyone’s feet. Voldemort reaches out his hand and she begins to slither up his arms and rests on his shoulder. We hear Nagini say something in parseltongue and the smile on Voldemorts face grows wider.

VOLDEMORT
It seems Nagini is hungry….

He looks up at Charity and smiles and tears start to fall quickly from her eyes. Voldemort points his wand at Burbage.

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

The scene cuts to a outside shot of MALFOY MANOR. We see a flash of green out of one of the windows. The camera quickly turns upwards and passes through the cloud. The title ‘HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS’ appear in the clouds. The camera passes through the title the clouds slowly dissolve and focus on HARRY POTTER’S scar. The camera pans back to show Harry’s face. He is sitting on his bed looking at a note.
  


The Dursley's Departed:    


  INT. DURSLEY’S HOME-HARRY’S BEDROOM-NIGHT

REGULUS (V.O.)
To the Dark Lord, I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match, you will be mortal once more. R.A.B.

Harry folds the note and places it back in the fake locket. He looks over at his owl HEDWIG.

HARRY
R.A.B. I don’t even know where to begin Hedwig.

Harry walks over and strokes Hedwig on her beak. He then turns and looks around his room. All of his belongings are packed and the room is bare.

HARRY
It’s going to be kind of weird not coming back here every summer.

UNCLE VERNON (O.S.)
HARRY POTTER!

Harry sighs and walks out of his room.

INT. THE DURSLEYS-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

Harry walks down the stairs and the camera pans over to show VERNON, PETUNIA, AND DUDLEY DURSLEY standing in the living room with all their bags packed.

VERNON
I’ve decided I don’t believe a word of it. We’re staying here!

HARRY
This is for your own good Uncle Vernon. Once I’m seventeen, the protective charm that Dumbledore put on this house will break and that exposes you as well as me. You’ve got to go into hiding and the Order wants to help. You’re being offered serious protection….

VERNON
But what about my work? What about Dudley’s school? I don’t suppose those things matter to a bunch of layabout wizards….

HARRY
Don’t you understand? They will torture and kill you like they did my parents!

VERNON
Petunia and I have decided that we are staying….

DUDLEY
Dad…I’m going with these Order people.

They all look over at Dudley and Harry gives him a slight smile as we hear a knock on the door. Harry opens the door and in walks HESTIA and DEDALUS.

HESTIA
Harry Potter!

DEDALUS
An honor, as ever!

HARRY
Thanks…come on in. Well here they are. My aunt, uncle, and cousin….

DEDALUS
Good day to you, Harry Potter relatives!

HESTIA
So is everything ready to go?

HARRY
Yes.

The Dursleys all grab their bags in that are sitting in the hallway.

VERNON
Well, this is good-bye, then, boy.

PETUNIA
Ready, Diddy?

She looks at Dudley who is staring at Harry.

VERNON
Come along, then….

DUDLEY
I don’t understand. Why isn’t Harry coming with us? Where is he going to go?

Vernon and Petunia both look at each other nervously.

HESTIA
Surely you must know where your nephew is going?

HARRY
They don’t…they don’t know anything about me…they think I’m a waste of space but I’m used to….

DUDLEY
I don’t think you’re a waste of space. You saved my life….

Everyone looks up at Dudley with shock in their eyes.

VERNON
Are we going or not? I thought we were on a tight schedule.

DEDALUS
That we are! We really must be off. Good luck Harry Potter. I hope we meet again. The hopes of the Wizarding world rest upon your shoulders.

HESTIA
Farewell, Harry, our thoughts go with you.

They all begin to exit and Dudley walks over to Harry and holds out his hand.

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

DUDLEY
Dunno…see you, Harry.

Harry takes his hand and shakes it.

HARRY
Yeah…maybe…take care, Big D.

Dudley and Harry both smile at each other and Dudley grabs his bags and exits. Petunia and Harry stand alone together in the hallway.

PETUNIA
Well…good bye….

HARRY
Good-bye.

She walks towards the door and pauses. She looks back at Harry as if she wanted to say something but turns and closes the door behind her leaving Harry standing alone in the house. The scene fades to Harry sitting his firebolt in the living room along with all his other bags. He looks around at the place and starts to talk to Hedwig who is sitting in her cage, which is on the table in the middle of the room.

HARRY
Look Hedwig…that’s where I used to sleep. You never knew me then….it’s so small…I’d forgotten…

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


The Seven Potters:    


  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, GINNY, MR. WEASLEY, TONKS, LUPIN, and KINGSLEY.

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

Harry and Ginny lock eyes for a moment and smile at each other.

MAD EYE
Change of plan. Since You-Know-Who has contacts inside the Ministry now it’ll be impossible to use magic around you.

HARRY
What do you mean Mad-Eye?

MOODY
You’re underage! If you, or anyone around you, casts a spell to get you out of here the Death Eaters will know about it.

HARRY
So what are we going to do?

MOODY
We’re going to use the only means of transport left to us, the only one’s the Trace can’t detect. Hagrid has his motorbike and the rest of us will have to use brooms. Now, your mother’s charm will only break under two conditions: when you come of age or you no longer call this place home. Once you leave here, the charm will be broken.

HARRY
Where will we be going? The Burrow?

MR. WEASLEY
Not quite. The house is still being repaired from the attack last year but it should be ready in a few days.

GINNY
Plus we think they’ll expect you to go there.

HARRY
So where?

TONKS
We’ll be meeting at our place Harry. We call it our Shell Cottage.

She smiles and grabs Lupin’s arm.

LUPIN
We have protection set up around a 30-mile radius around the area so just in case, they can’t pinpoint a location.

HARRY
There’s one problem though…won’t it be obvious if all of us are flying there?

MOODY
I forgot to mention...there will be seven Harry Potters moving through the skies tonight.

He reaches into his cloak and pulls out a flask.

HARRY
What? No! That’s polyjuice potion isn’t it? If you think I’m going to let six people risk their lives….

RON
Because it’s the first time for all of us….

HARRY
This is different….pretending to be me….

FRED
Well, none of us really fancy it, Harry.

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

MOODY
Now lets have a few of your hairs boy! The only way to get you out of here safely is to have decoys!

HARRY
But…..

Moody walks over and plucks a few hairs out of Harry’s head.

MOODY
Right then…fake Potters line up over here, please.

Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, and Ginny line up on the other side of the kitchen while Moody pours the potion in separate cups.

HARRY
Wait…there’s only 5 of you. Who’s the 6th?

DOBBY (O.S.)
Harry Potter!

Harry jumps in shock and turns around to see DOBBY the houself standing behind him.

HARRY
Dobby? How long have you been here?

DOBBY
I’ve been here the whole time sir.

MOODY
Come here elf!

HARRY
Wait…Dobby? I didn’t know houselves could use the potion.

HERMIONE
Well it’s possible…although it against their nature to do so but…

DOBBY
Dobby would do anything to help Harry Potter. Anything.

Harry smiles as Mad Eye hands each of them their cup.

MAD EYE
All together then.

They all take a big gulp of the drink. They all frown at the disgusting taste (although Dobby appears to really enjoy it) and all of a sudden all of their features start to change into Harry. Harry stares in disbelief as now there are six other Harry Potter’s standing in front of him. They all look at each other in shock.

FRED AND GEORGE
Wow…we’re identical!

HERMIONE
Harry your eyesight really is awful! I can’t see a thing without your glasses.

Dobby lets out a loud yelp and starts to dance around the room. They all stare at him.

HARRY
Dobby…DOBBY…what is it?

DOBBY
Dobby never dreamed that he would possibly get to BE Harry Potter!

He gives a smile and we see Mad Eye roll his eye.

EXT. DURSLEY’S BACKYARD-MOMENTS LATER

The scene everyone walking outside.

HAGRID
You’re with me, Harry. That all righ?

RON
I’m not Harry this is Ron.

HAGRID
Oh…’arry?

HERMIONE
Hermione. I think Harry went upstairs to get his things Hagrid.

Hagrid looks as the real Harry walks out with Hedwig’s cage and a briefcase. Lupin walks out carrying Harry’s firebold.

HAGRID
Oh there ye are ‘arry! We’ll be on the bike, brooms can’t take me weight see. You’ll be in the sidecar.

MOODY
Everyone on your transport!

Everyone get’s on their brooms. Harry places Hedwig in the sidecar before he gets in.

HARRY
Hagrid, is this Sirius bike?

HAGRID
The very same. An’ last time yeh was on it, Harry, I could fit yeh in one hand!

MOODY
Good luck everyone, see you all in about an hour at the Shell Cottage. On the count of three. One….two…THREE!

SWOOSH everyone takes off into the night sky. Hagrid starts the bike and races out of the back yard onto the street, almost slamming into a parked car. He stops it and reeves the engine.

HARRY
Hagrid?

HAGRID
We got ter get ‘er started good before we take ‘off ‘arry. Hold on!

VROOM Hagrid races down the street. He clicks a button and SWOOSH they are airborne. The camera pans up to show Hagrids bike soaring into the night sky.

EXT. LONDON SKYLINE-NIGHT

We see an overhead shot of London at night. SWOOSH we see Lupin with one of the Harry decoys and Tonks with another fly past the camera. The camera pans up to show Mad Eye circling keeping a watch out. Hagrid’s bike flies into view as they fly over the city.

HAGRID
We’ll be there in no time ‘Arry!

Harry grabs his scar as it bursts into pain.

HAGRID
‘Arry what’s wrong?

HARRY
I…I don’t know…

SWOOSH out of nowhere Death Eaters appear around them. Hagrid quickly pulls to his left narrowly avoiding hitting one of the newly apparated Death Eaters. BAM spells are now being flown throughout the air. We see the Harry decoys start to separate and dodge the spells. Hagrid turns sharp avoiding a spell thrown by a Death Eater. We see Bellatrix on a broom flying towards Tonks. BOOM a spell is thrown that Tonks quickly deflects. She turns upwards quickly as the Harry decoy holds onto her tightly. We now see Snape flying next to another Death Eater. They’re closing in on Kingsley and another Harry decoy. Snape looks over at the Death Eater. They both pull out their wands and the camera quickly DIPS to show Moody blasting away the Death Eaters.The scene shifts to Harry in Hagrids sidecar. A Death Eater appears behind them and fires a spell.

HARRY
Protego!

SMACK the spell is blocked. Harry turns around and notices a group of Death Eaters all lined up in front of them. He looks back and notices that they are surrounded.

HARRY
Hagrid!

HAGRID
Don’ worry ‘arry, we’ll lose em!

BAM Hagrid dips quickly and makes a sharp turn and BAM flies into one of the skyscrapers.

INT. SKYSCRAPER- OFFICE-NIGHT

We see Hagrid fly through the mostly deserted office. The poor night shift workers dive as Hagrid’s bike flies through and trashes most of their office. Two Death Eaters quickly fly through the hole in the window following them. Harry looks back and points his wand.

HARRY
Impedimenta!

SWOOSH the first dives to the side but BAM the other is hit by the spell being thrown off of his broom and landing on one of the desks. BAM they crash through the window on the opposite side. Hagrid turns quickly and the bike does a 360. While upside down Harry’s broom and Hedwig’s cage both fall out of the sidecar. Harry quickly reaches and grabs the cage as the broom continues to fall and BAM we see a green light hit it.

HARRY
NO!!!!!!!!!!

The bike turns right side up again and Hagrid quickly avoids another spell. Harry, with tears in his eyes, quickly opens the cage, pulls out Hedwigs lifeless body, and holds it close to him.

HARRY
Hedwig….Hedwig…..

The camera then pulls up to show Voldemort simply floating above the city. He is watching the battle below trying to find the real Harry Potter. The scene then cuts to a Death Eater pulling beside Hagrid on his broom. BAM Hagrid kicks him off of his broom. SWOOSH we see Mad Eye pull up quickly beside them (taking out a Death Eater in the process)

MAD EYE
The Dark Lord….he’s up there!

Hagrid and Harry both look up and notice Voldemort simply floating above them all.

MAD EYE
I’ll distract him. Get Harry into the protection…NOW!!!

HARRY
Professor Moody…wait…!

SWOOSH Moody pulls up and flies towards Voldemort. BOOM he throws a spell that Voldemort quickly deflects. He continues to throw spells that Voldemort deflect with ease. BOOM Voldemort knocks the broom from under Moody but before he falls Voldemort SWOOPS down and grabs him by the neck. Harry looks up and see’s Voldemort and Moody hanging above the skyline. Hagrid quickly dips and turns around a building and now they’re out of sight. The camera cuts back to Voldemort and Moody hanging mid air. Moody gasps for breath as Voldemort stares at him. He places his wand right on Moody’s stomach.

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM we see the spell hit Moody and Voldemort lets him go and we see Moody fall.
  


Harry's Spell:    


  EXT. SHORELINE/FIELD-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hagrid quickly flying across a barren landscape. Two Death Eaters are quickly gaining on them.

HAGRID
Almost there ‘arry!

Hagrid makes another turn as a Death Eater sends a spell. The spell misses them and Harry turns and points his wand.

HARRY
Stupefy!

BOOM the spell is fired but misses the Death Eater but he moves so quickly to avoid it that his hood flies off and it is STAN SHUNPIKE.

HARRY
Stan?

Stan points his wand at Harry.

HARRY
Expelliarmus!

BOOM his wand is knocked out of his hand. He doesn’t seem to mind and actually smiles and SWOOSH he and the other Death Eater disappear.

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 turns again and Harry looks down and notice a beachline below him. All of a sudden Harry screams out in pain as his scar begins to throb again. SWOOSH a Death Eater appears and BAM hits the sidecar making it separate from the bike.

HAGRID
NO!

Hagrid quickly grabs Harry’s arm before he falls. Harry looks down and notices the sidecar crash into the ocean. Hagrid pulls him up upon the bike behind him. SWOOSH Voldemort appears flying quickly towards them.

HARRY
It’s him Hagrid!!!

Another Death Eater appears next to them. BAM Hagrid elbows him off the broom. Another one appears in front of him and Hagrid let’s out a scream of rage and JUMPS off of the bike onto the Death Eater and they both fall. Voldemort raises his wand and it seems that the very clouds begin to turn into fire. The fire whirls around his head firecly and begin to form into a GIANT FIRE SERPANT. Voldemort points his wand and the fire serpant quickly flies towards Harry. The scene cuts to a wideshot of Voldemort floating mid air and the giant serpant quickly flying towards Harry on the motorbike which is quickly descending to the ground. Harry covers his head in defeat and BOOM the spell is knocked back by the protective charm.

VOLDEMORT
NO!!!!

Harry looks around and sighs that he’s still alive. He quickly turns and grabs the handle of the bike. He pulls up and tries to slow it down and BAM he crashes into the ground.

EXT. BEACH-NIGHT

Harry is thrown to the side as the bike continues to flip and turn further ahead of him. Harry quickly gets up and looks around.

HARRY
HAGRID!!!

He looks back where they came and starts to walk in that direction. Ahead he see’s Voldemort standing in front of him muttering trying to take down the protection that is up. Harry stops cold and notices a few feet behind Voldemort is Hagrid laying on the ground.

HARRY
No…..

Voldemort stops and stares at Harry. They both stare at each other for a moment in silence. Voldemort then turns his neck. All of a sudden Harry does the same movement and can hear Voldemort in his head.

VOLDEMORT
I’m going to kill you Harry. These protections won’t hold for long and when they break I will find you.

Voldemort gives Harry a smile and POOF he is gone. Harry stares at Hagrid’s body in disbelief. He starts to approach the body. A hand goes across Harry’s shoulder and quickly turns him around. It is Lupin looking deep into Harry’s eyes.

LUPIN
What shape does Harry Potter’s patronus take?

HARRY
Wha….?

LUPIN
ANSWER ME!!!!

HARRY
A stag…but why….?

LUPIN
I had to make sure it was you Harry. I’m sorry.

HARRY
Hagrid….Hagrid….

Lupin looks over and notices Hagrid laying in the sand. Tonks is seen running towards them in the distance.

LUPIN
I’ll go check on him. Don’t walk out of the protection Harry it could be a trap.

Lupin runs out of the protection and approaches Hagrid’s body. Tonks stops and puts her arm around Harry.

LUPIN
He’s alive. He’s breathing.

We see a wideshot of Lupin kneeling over Hagrid and Harry and Tonks standing on the beach. The scene then fades to a shot of waves. The camera then pans up to show SHELL COTTAGE in the distance. The camera cuts to a shot of a bruised and battered Harry walking toward the house with Tonks. We see the door open and Ginny runs out. She quickly throws her arms around Harry and they hug.

NT. SHELL COTTAGE-LIVING ROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hermione tending to some of Ron’s scars. The camera slowy pans over to show George with a bandade over his head and blood soaked on the side of it. Fred is sitting on the floor in front of his brother. Dobby is looking into the fireplace and Kinglsey is pacing. The door opens and Harry and Ginny walks in. Everyone looks up. Hagrid, Tonks, and Lupin follow. Hagrid takes a seat in one of the chairs and Tonks rushes into another room. Harry looks over and notices George.

HARRY
What happened to him?

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

KINGSLEY
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…

MR. WEASLEY
He caught up with you?

Harry looks as Mr. Weasley walks into the room with.

RON
Blimey Harry how did you escape?

HERMIONE
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…

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!

Tonks walks into the room with some towels and hands one to Harry.

HERMIONE
Where’s Mad Eye?

Harry drops his head at the sound of his name. Everyone immediately knew what happened.

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

MR. 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?

TONKS
You’ll find a bed made right upstairs.

He turns and leaves everyone.
  


Portkey to the Burrow:    


  INT. SHELL COTTAGE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

We see a shot of Harry sleeping. He is tossing and turning. Sweat pour down his face as we hear screams over the screen.

VOLDEMORT(O.S.)
I’m going to kill you Harry….

Harry eyes pop open.

EXT. SHELL COTTAGE-BEDROOM-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione sitting in a bedroom.

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!

HARRY
I know Hermione.

Harry notices a picture sitting next to Hermione. He picks it up and stares at it. The camera zooms in on the picture and it’s a picture of Hermione and her parents.

HARRY
Nice picture. How do your parents feel about all this?

He hands the picture to Hermione and she looks down at it.

HERMIONE
They don’t know. They don’t even know they have a daughter anymore.

Harry looks at her curiously.

HERMIONE
I modified my parents’ memories so that they think they’re completely different people. I didn’t want to risk…if anything happens to me on our mission, they’ll be fine.

Tears slowly begin to fall down Hermione’s eyes. Harry puts his arm around her to comfort her. The camera pans over to show Ron about to walk into the room. He pauses and stares and all he see’s is Harry with his arm around Hermione. He seems a bit disturbed by it and turns and walks away.

HARRY
Hermione I’m sorry….

HERMIONE
No. It’s fine. Really. Don’t go blaming yourself for it. Ron and I promised we would help and I’m sticking by it.

They smile at each other and the scene slowly fades to a shot of a CAN. The camera pans back to show Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny standing around it.

INT. SHELL COTTAGE-LIVING ROOM-MIDDAY

LUPIN
Alright this Portkey will take you straight into the protective enchantments at The Burrow.

HARRY
Thanks again for your help.

TONKS
If you ever need a place to stay for a while…well…you’re more than welcomed here.

LUPIN
Okay on the count of three.

They all place their hand on the can.

LUPIN
One…two…THREE.

SWOOSH they are gone.

EXT. THE BURROW-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to a shot of THE BURROW. SWOOSH the four appear in front of the house. We see MRS. WEASLEY standing waiting for their arrival. She quickly runs up and puts her arms around them all.

INT. BURROW-KITCHEN-MIDDAY
The scene cuts to a shot of the Daily Prophet. We pan back to show Hermione reading it.

HERMIONE
There’s still no word on Moody’s death.

RON
I won’t be surprised if the Death Eaters have taken ‘The Prophet’ over already.

HERMIONE
They’re still talking about Dumbledore though. Rita Skeeter, she’s publishing a book called ‘The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore’ Says she’s got proof that Dumbledore was once a dark wizard in his youth.

HARRY
Rubbish.

HERMIONE
Harry did you know Dumbledore lived in Godric’s Hallow?

HARRY
Really? That’s where my parents were killed. He never told me…well…come to think of it…there’s a lot about him I don’t know.

RON
And You-Know-Who’s soul thingys….

HARRY
Horcruxes.

RON
Yeah Horcruxes. Any idea what they are?

HARRY
No. He said they could be anything.

RON
Great. Just our luck it’s in a banana or something…

HERMIONE
Don’t be thick. This is You-Know-Who we’re talking about. I’m sure he wouldn’t place his soul in a banana. I think it would be in something important.

RON
If R.A.B. destroyed the locket then that is one less Horcrux we have to find.

HERMIONE
Yes, but we’re still going to have to try and trace the real locket, aren’t we? We have to find out if it’s really destroyed.

Harry nobs in agreement. The scene cuts to a shot of the sun rising over the horizon. The camera pans over to show the Burrow and we cut to a shot of Harry sleeping.
  


Harry's Seventeenth Birthday:    


  INT. BURROW-RON’S BEDROOM-DAWN

RON (O.S.)
HARRY!

Harry quickly jumps up and grabs for his wand.

RON
Happy 17th Birthday mate!

HARRY
Yeah…thanks…..

RON
Well go ahead…use some magic...you can do it anytime you like now!

Harry grabs his wand and looks around the room. He see’s a book sitting next to Ron’s bed and points his wand at it.

HARRY
Accio book!

The book flies into Harry’s hand and he looks down at the title.

HARRY
Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches?

RON
That book’s pure gold…you should keep it. It explains everything you need to know about girls.

Harry laughs and the scene fades to a shot of a food filled table.

INT. BURROW-KITCHEN-MIDDAY

The camera pans up to show Harry and Ron walking down the stairs. Ron eyes widen with excitement as he see all the food.

HARRY
What’s all this?

Mrs. Weasley runs up and gives him a big hug.

MRS. WEASLEY
Happy Birthday dear!

HARRY
Thanks Mrs. Weasley. This is…great...you didn’t have to…

MRS. WEASLEY
Of course I did!

Tonks and Lupin walk into the kitchen. Tonks quickly hugs Harry.

TONKS
Happy Birthday Harry!

HARRY
Thanks.

LUPIN
Your parents and Sirius would be proud. I know I am. You’ve grown into a fine man Harry.

HARRY
Thanks Professor.

LUPIN
Call me Remus.

Harry smiles and we see Hermione run down the stairs and hugs Harry. Behind her Ginny walks down and looks on. She smiles at him.

EXT. THE BURROW-FRONT YARD-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Ginny walking in the front yard of the Burrow.

GINNY
I had to get you out of there. Bit crowded isn’t it?

HARRY
Yeah. We haven’t had the chance to really talk huh?

GINNY
Well you’ve been busy, saving the world and all…

HARRY
Ginny…I…I just…I wish things were different you know? I wish I wasn’t ‘The Chosen One’ and maybe, just maybe…we could…

GINNY
But you are ‘The Chosen One’ Harry and I know you have a mission to do. I won’t jeopardize that with something like my feelings…

Harry grabs Ginny and starts to kiss her. They begin to kiss like they’ll never see each other again. They stop kissing and hold each other looking while looking into each others eyes.

HARRY
When this is over….when all this is done…

RON (O.S.)
Harry!

They both jump apart as Ron walks towards them from the house.

RON
Time to eat.

GINNY
Well happy seventeenth Harry…

She smiles at him and walks off. Harry begins to follow but Ron stops him.

RON
I saw you two…

HARRY
What?

RON
I saw you and Ginny…snogging…

HARRY
Ron I’m….

RON
We’re leaving soon Harry.

HARRY
I know I just….

RON
And you get her hopes up like that? You know she’s had a crush on you since she first met you…

HARRY
I know Ron and I’m sorry…it won’t happen again…

RON
Right…well... come on then.

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 standing.

EVERYONE
Happy Birthday Harry!!!

There’s a POP and confetti flies everywhere. Harry smiles as Mrs. Weasley once again runs up and hugs him.

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

She hands Harry a watch.

MRS. WEASLEY
It’s tradition to give wizards a watch on their Birthday. I know it’s not much but….

HARRY
Thanks Mrs. Weasley. Really.

She smiles and motions for him to sit down.

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

HARRY
Yeah. You told me I was a wizard and gave Dudley a pig’s tail.

Hagrid smiles at Harry and everyone takes their seat.

HARRY
Where’s Mr. Weasley?

MRS. WEASLEY
He had to work today dear. The new Minister Rufus Scrimgeour has been working them to the bone. He sends his love. He should be home soon. Now dig in everyone.

Ron is the first to grab something. Hermione looks at him and sighs. 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 family.
  


The Will of Albus Dumbledore:    


  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…

LUPIN
You can’t do this alone Harry…

TONKS
Remus….


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….

DOBBY (O.S.)
Sorry I’m late!

Everyone jumps. Harry looks down and see’s Dobby staring up at him.

HARRY
Dobby….

DOBBY
Dobby is so sorry sir. Dobby would not miss Harry Potter’s birthday for anything in the world. Dobby had to find Harry Potter the perfect gift.

Harry looks relieved that Dobby interrupted the conversation.

HARRY
What is it?

Dobby reaches into his clothes and pulls out a sock.

DOBBY
This is the sock Harry Potter used to free Dobby. Dobby thought you would want it back sir.

Dobby smiles at Harry and Harry takes the sock and chuckles.

HARRY
Thanks Dobby.

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

MR. WEASLEY
Hello all.

MRS. WEASLEY
Arthur you’re home! What is that?

MR. WEASLEY
Ministry business. 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
Anything wrong Mr. Weasley?

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

Mr. Weasley pulls out a piece of parchment and begins to read aloud.

MR. WEASLEY
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. Seems you have a few things here Harry. 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
Snitches carry enchantments by which it can identify the first human to lay hands upon it, in case of a disputed capture.

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
He also left you Sirius Black’s will.

HARRY
What?

MR. WEASLEY
Yes. Dumbledore fought hard to get that from the Ministry. Sirius left you his home in Grimmauld Place and everything he owned.

Harry takes the will and looks at it.

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
I was shocked aswell. Unfortunately it wasn’t available; I’m not sure where it is exactly.

HARRY
The Minister…Scrimgeour...he doesn’t know?

MR. WEASLEY
He didn’t say. He seemed distracted…worried…I think You-Know-Who’s reigns is getting to him.

MRS. WEASLEY
ARTHUR!!!

They all run into the kitchen. Everyone inside is not outside the house. They all rush outside.

EXT. BURROW-FRONT YARD-MIDDAY

The camera cuts to Tonks and Lupin, wands both drawn. The camera pans over to show DEATH EATERS just outside of the protection. They keep throwing spells trying to break it down.

MRS. WEASLEY
They just showed up.

LUPIN
They must know Harry is here.

Hermione gasps and runs back into the house.

MR. WEASLEY
Well we’re safe as long as the protection holds.

MRS. WEASLEY
I can’t take this…not again….

SWOOSH all of a sudden there is a bright light that appears in front of them. It quickly forms into a silver lynx patronus.

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

Fear crosses all of their eyes. We see beyond the peremiters Bellatrix appear. She smiles as she slowly walks towards the barrier.

LUPIN
Harry get out of here. NOW!!!

Ron grabs his arm and they run into the house. Lupin, Tonks, Fred, George, Ginny, Dobby, and Mr. Weasley all run into the yard with their wands drawn. Bellatrix gives a laugh as she simply touches the protection with her wand and SWOOSH it seems to the protection turns into fire. Everyone looks up as it seems the sky has vanished and they’re surrounded by a dome of fire. SWOOSH the Death Eaters turn into black smoke and quickly fly through the fire. It seems the fire and their smoke mesh together and it appears 4 giant fire balls are flying towards them. Tonks and Lupin quickly burst into white smoke and fly head first into two of the Death Eaters. BAM they collide. We see everyone else start to throw spells. Bellatrix lands in front of them.

BELLATRIX
Thought I’d stop by for another visit.

She starts to laugh and we see rage engulf Mrs. Weasley.

INT. THE BURROW-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Ron running through the house.

RON
HERMIONE! HERMIONE!

We see Hermione quickly run down stairs.

RON
Where did you….

HERMIONE
I had to grab something. Come. Quickly.

BOOM it seems like a shock wave moves through the house. The trio is knocked down as glass shatters all around them. Ron jumps up and see’s his Mum laying on the ground with Bellatrix over her. Everyone else is captured by a Death Eater.

RON
No….

HERMIONE
Come on Ron!

RON
MUM!!!

Hermione reaches out and grabs Ron’s arm. She takes Harry’s hand and SWOOSH they disappear. We see them twisting and turning in the apparition stream and we hear Ron sceams. We see them land and all the world around them quickly takes form. They land in the middle of a crowded street and quickly jump back as a bus barely hits them.
  


A Place to Hide:    


  EXT. TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD-MOMENTS LATER

Hermione looks around and begins to walk. Harry and Ron glance at her and begin to follow. Ron pushes his way through people trying to get to Hermione. Hermione keeps walking. She quickly turns a corner and other 2 follow.

RON
Hermione!

She pauses while still looking around. Ron and Harry finally catch up with her.

RON
Where are we?

HERMIONE
Tottenham Court Road. Walk, just walk. We need somewhere to hide.

She begins to walk again and they both walk beside her.

HARRY
Hide? My Invisibility Cloak! I don’t have it with me….

HERMIONE
I’ve got the cloak, and clothes for all of us.

They turn down an ally and Hermione opens the small handbag she has with her and starts feeling around in it.

HARRY
You fit everything in there?

HERMIONE
Everything we will need yes. Undetectable Extension Charm. It was tricky but I think I’ve done okay.

HARRY
When did you do all this?

HERMIONE
I’ve had the essentials packed for days, you know, in case we needed a quick getaway. This is what I ran upstairs to get.

She pulls out the Invisibility Cloak and hands it to Harry. Harry throws the cloak over him and Ron and Hermione walk out of the alleyway 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 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
Yeah….

HERMIONE
So let’s just….

SWOOSH out of nowhere two figures apparate in front of them in black smoke.

HERMIONE
Run!

She pulls Ron and Harry (Who’s still invisible) into another allyway 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 ropes flying at him. SWOOSH Hermione waves her wand and the ropes are thrown back at the Death Eater who simply burns them before they wrap around him.

HARRY (O.S.)
STUPDEFY!

The spell shoots out but barely misses the Death Eater.

DEATH EATER 1
EXPULSO!

BOOM the wall next to Harry explodes knocking the Cloak off of him as he falls.

HERMIONE
Petrificus Totalus!

BOOM the Death Eater is hit in the chest and falls down frozen.

RON
STUPEFY!!

BOOM the other Death Eater is knocked hard against the wall and falls out unconscious. Harry then goes to fetch is Cloak as Ron checks on Hermione

RON
You alright?

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

Hermione points her wand at the Death Eater.

HERMIONE
Obliviate!

HARRY
Brilliant Hermione.

She turns and does the same for to the other Death Eater.

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

RON
Ha can’t have, he’s seventeen now.

HARRY
We need somewhere to hide…Grimmauld Place..that’s all we have.

HERMIONE
But Harry Snape…

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

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 all stop moving.

HERMIONE
Harry…Harry I can’t move…

HARRY
Me neither!

We see them try to move but they can’t. Slowly it seems dust starts to collect in front of them. If quickly starts to spin and FLASH the dust forms into an image of Dumbledore. The figure stands eerily still and points at them.

MOODY (VOICE)
Severus Snape?

HARRY
We’re not Snape!

The figure starts to float slowly towards them. Fear grips the trio as they try to move once again. We see the Dumbledore figure open it’s mouth.

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

SWOOSH the cloud of dust explodes leaving them coughing. They’re now able to move. Hermione quickly jumps into Ron’s arms shaking.

HARRY
You guys okay?

RON
Yeah.

Harry turns and begins to walk down the hall.

HERMIONE
Harry wait.

She pulls out her wand.

HERMIONE
Let’s see if there’s another human presence here first. Homenum revelio!

Nothing happens.

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

RON
And old dusty.

He gesturing to where Dumbledore’s figure just was.

HARRY
Good. Well let’s get upstairs…

He starts to walk and grabs his scar in pain.

RON
What is it?

HARRY
Nothing…I….I just felt angry. He’s really angry.

Harry closes his eyes and his neck twitches as we hear Voldemort’s voice over the screen.

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

We hear another voice scream as Harry grabs his head in pain and then BOOM there is a burst of bright light. They all look up as a Weasel patronus appears in front of them and Mr. Weasley’s voice comes from it.

MR. WEASLEY (O.S.)
Family safe, do not reply, we are being watched.

SWOOSH the Patronus is gone.

RON
Everyone’s alright!

HERMIONE
That’s good news….Harry? Are you alright?

HARRY
Fine..it was just Voldemort. I think the connection between us is opening again…especially when he loses control. It’s fine now...

HERMIONE
Harry you have to block that!

HARRY
I know Hermione…let’s…just go and freshen up alright?

HERMIONE
Right…well let’s get upstairs. Don’t worry about your undergarments Ron, I washed them yesterday.

They both walk upstairs and Harry’s watches them. He then turns and looks down the hallway towards the door. He lets out a sigh and proceeds to walk upstairs.
  


Number 3 Grimmauld Place:    


  INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene fades to the trio sitting in a bedroom. Hermione is reading the book Dumbledore gave her, Harry is staring at the snitch, and Ron keeps clicking the lights on and off.

HERMIONE
Would you stop that! I’m trying to read!

RON
Sorry…

Ron clicks the deluminator and the lights pop on again.

HARRY
I can’t believe they’re keeping the sword of Gryffindor. It’s mine. We have to get it back from them!

HERMIONE
How Harry? We don’t know where it is.

HARRY
Dumbledore’s office maybe.

HERMIONE
You think it’s still there? Besides I doubt we’ll be able to just waltz into Hogwarts and get the sword from Dumbledore’s office!

Harry looks down at the snitch in his hand.

HARRY
Well I guess it’s time to see if Dumbledore really left me a message with this thing.

RON
What do you mean?

HARRY
Don’t you remember Ron. My first match I caught the Snitch…

RON
In your mouth!

HARRY
Well..here goes…

Harry pops the Snitch into his mouth and takes it out. Slowly words start to form on the Snitch and Harry reads it outloud.

HARRY
‘I open at the close’

RON
What’s that supposed to mean?

HARRY
No idea.

HERMIONE
This book if full of fairy tales. Why would Dumbledore leave this for me?

RON
Mum used to read those stories to us all the time growing up. Good stuff.

HERMIONE
Although…

Hermione gets up and takes the book over to Harry.

HERMIONE
Do you know what the symbol means Harry?

The camera zooms in on the SYMBOL.

HERMIONE
Dumbledore used it as the A in his name and it’s here on the story ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’

RON
I loved that story!

HERMIONE
So do you know what the symbol means?

RON
No idea.

Harry sighs in frustration, gets up, and walks quickly out of the room. Hermione looks at Ron who shrugs.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KICHEN-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Harry storming down the stairs and into the kitchen. Hermione and Ron quickly rush after him.

HERMIONE
Harry…HARRY!…what’s wrong?

HARRY
Don’t you see Hermione! We’re unprepared! We don’t know anything! Dumbledore left me with nothing!

HERMIONE
Harry…

HARRY
I don’t know what these Horcruxes are or even where to start looking for them. He leaves us these things in his will and for what? Snape took him away before…before…

HERMIONE
We’ll figure things out Harry…it’ll just take some time…

HARRY
Time? TIME! I thought Dumbledore and I had more time and look where we are now.

Harry walks to the table and sits down.

KREACHER (O.S.)
Who’s there?

They all jump and turn as KREACHER the houself walks into the kitchen.

KREACHER
Why is the mudblood and blood traitor in my families’ house? GET OUT!

HARRY
Kreacher?

KREACHER
Ma….master…..

Kreacher bows and Harry casts a look at Hermione and Ron.

HARRY
Master?

HERMIONE
Don’t you see Harry? Sirius left you this place in his will, which means….

RON
Kreacher belongs to you. Great…tell him to make us some food.

HERMIONE
Ron!

RON
What! That’s what they’re there for!

HERMIONE
House elves have every right as we do.

HARRY
Quiet you two! Kreacher why are you still here?

KREACHER
Kreacher is bound to this home and will keep watch over it. Master Sirius deserved what he got meddling with mudbloods and…

HARRY
Enough! I don’t want to hear you saying mudblood or blood traitor again. You understand?

KREACHER
Yes master.

HARRY
Where did you just come from?

KREACHER
I was cleaning my mistresses portrait. If she knew the scum that were in her house….

HARRY
I thought I told you not to say…

KREACHER
You told me not to call them mudblood and blood traitor. You said nothing about scum.

Kreacher smiles and quickly leaves the room before Harry orders him not to say it.

RON
He’s going to be fun to have around. So now what?

HARRY
Let’s have a look around this place. See what we can find

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a shot of a dark dusty room. The door opens and Hermione walks into the room. She starts to look around the room curiously. She glances and notices a portrait on the wall. She walks to the portrait and wipes the dust off the nameplate.

HERMIONE
Phineas Nigellus Black.

Her eyes widen as she glances up at the portrait.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-HALLWAY

The camera cuts to Harry walking up the stairs into a Hallway. He turns to walk up the next flight of stairs but pauses. He notices the nameplate on a door reads ‘SIRIUS’ He pauses in front of the door for a moment and then slowly opens the door.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-SIRIUS ROOM

Harry walks into Sirius’s room and looks around. He notices the large bed, tall windows, and a dusty chandelier. He walks toward the other end of the room where there a many pictures plastered on the wall underneath a large Gryffindor banner. The camera zooms in on the pictures showing plenty of motorcycles, girls in bikini’s, and plenty of pictures of young Sirius. He camera pauses on a picture of young Sirius, James, Lupin, and Wormtail all smiling and waving. The camera pans back to show Harry looking at the picture.

HARRY
Dad….

He tries to take the picture down but it doesn’t budge. Harry takes a step back and we hear a paper shuffle. He looks down notices a pile of papers next to Sirius bed. He picks them up and starts looking through them. Harry notices an envelope. He picks it up and written on the envelope is ‘To Sirius, From Lily.’ Harry quickly opens the envelope and pulls out a letter and a picture falls out. Harry picks it up. It’s a picture of him as a baby zooming around on the broom and his fathers legs chasing him. Harry smiles and there is a knock on the door. Harry turns around to see Hermione standing there.

HERMIONE
Harry there’s something you have to see.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione walking into the room Hermione just left. She walks over to the portrait and points at it.

HERMIONE
It belongs to Phineas Nigellus Black.

HARRY
Phineas? Wasn’t he…?

HERMIONE
An old Headmaster at Hogwarts yes. Which means he can move from his portrait at Hogwarts to this one. I was thinking….

HARRY
Maybe he can contact Dumbledore for us! Brilliant!

HERMIONE
Phineas. Mr. Black are you there! Mr. Black we need to talk to you please!

Nothing happens and Hermione turns around with a look of disappointment.

HARRY
Maybe he’s busy with the new headmaster at Hogwarts whoever that is.

HERMIONE
Perhaps. We should keep a close watch on this just in case he appears.

Hermione begins to take the portrait down.

HARRY
What are you doing?

HERMIONE
Who know’s how long we’ll be here. Might as well put it in my bag with everything else.

Harry helps her take the portrait down. Ron walks into the room.

RON
I got something I think you two really need to see.
  


Kreacher's Tale:    


  INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-HALLWAY-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Ron leading Harry and Hermione down a hall. He stops in front of the door.

RON
Take a look.

Harry walks over and looks at the nameplate on the wall.The camera zooms in on the faceplate and it reads ‘Do Not Enter Without the Express Permission of Regulus Arcturus Black’

HARRY
Regulus Arcturus Black. That’s Sirius’s brother. Slughorn mentioned him last year.

RON
Yeah but look at the initials Harry.

HARRY
R. A….wait…you don’t think….

RON
It has to be.

Harry goes to open the door but it doesn’t budge. He jams his shoulder into the door to try and force it open. Harry then pulls out his wand and points it at the doorknob. BOOM the doorknob falls off and the door opens. They slowly walk into the room.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULAS ROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to them walking into Regulus’s all green room. Ron goes over to the wall and starts to examine the newspaper clippings.

RON
They’re all about You-Know-Who. Do you think Regulus was a Death Eater.

HARRY
Wouldn’t surprise me.

Hermione notices a chest underneath his bed. She pulls it out and opens it. She pulls out the books in it and gasps.

HARRY
Hermione?

HERMIONE
I can’t believe it….

Ron and Harry walk up behind her. She slowly opens the book.

HARRY
Hermione?

She looks back at them with an intrigued look on her face.

HERMIONE
These books are about Horcruxes.

Ron and Harry glance at each other.

KREACHER (O.S.)
What are you doing in Master Regulus room!

They all turn to see Kreacher, visibly angry, standing in the doorway. He notices the book Hermione is holding and quickly rushes and snatches it from her.

HARRY
Kreacher….

KREACHER
No! Get out! GET OUT! I’m sorry master!!

Kreacher begins to cry as he holds the book closer to him.

RON
Just order him to give you the book, the git.

HERMIONE
Ron!

HARRY
Kreacher….

Harry reaches out to touch him but Kreacher quickly pulls back and glares at Harry. Harry pulls out the fake locket and lets it hang in front of Kreacher.

HARRY
Does this look familiar to you Kreacher?

Kreacher stares at the locket in silence. He drops the book and tears begin to fall faster down his face.

HARRY
I went looking for a locket a few months ago. I found this…there is a letter inside….

KREACHER
Yes. Yes.

HARRY
Did this belong to your Master Regulus?

Kreacher nods all the while staring at the locket.

KREACHER
Kreacher failed Master. Kreacher tried….

HARRY
Tell me what happened Kreacher. Please.

Kreacher for the first time takes his eyes off the locket and looks up at Harry. He slowly walks to the other side of the room and sits against the wall. Kreacher seems to stare off into the distance…a memory filling is mind that he hadn’t thought about in years.

KREACHER
When he was sixteen years old, Master Regulus joined the Dark Lord.

INT. GRIMMAULD YEARS-KITCHEN-YEARS EARLIER (FLASHBACK)

The scene slowly fades to Kreacher in the past cleaning up the kitchen. REGULUS slowly walks into the kitchen.

KREACHER (V.O)
A year after he had joined, Master Regulus came down to the kitchen to see Kreacher and Master Regulus said…he said…

REGULUS
The Dark Lord requires an elf Kreacher.

Kreacher bows.

EXT. THE CAVE-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a wideshot of THE CAVE where Voldemort hid the locket Horcrux. We see Voldemort standing outside of the entrance with Kreacher.

KREACHER (V.O.)
So Kreacher went to the Dark Lord. The Dark Lord took Kreacher to a cave beside the sea. And beyond the cave there was a cavern, and in the cavern was a great black lake….

We see Voldemort pulling the boat up from the depths of the lake. Kreacher looks up at him curiously and Voldemort simply smiles.

KREACHER (V.O.)
There was boat…and it took us to this basin full of potion on the island. The Dark Lord…The Dark Lord made Kreacher drink it…

We see Kreacher taking a drink of the potion and he begins to yell out in pain. He continues to drink as Voldemort’s eyes widen with satisfaction.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher drank, and as he drank, he saw terrible things…Kreacher’s insides burned…Kreacher cried for Master Regulus to save him, but the Dark Lord only laughed. He made Kreacher drink all the potion…He dropped a locket into the empty basin…he filled it with more potion..and then…and then….

HARRY (V.O.)
What Kreacher?

KREACHER (V.O.)
He sailed away, leaving Kreacher on the island…

We see Voldemort sailing away on the boat and Kreacher gasping for air on all fours.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher needed water, he crawled to the island’s edge and he drank from the black lake…and hands…dead hands…came out of the water and dragged Kracher under the surface….

We see Kreacher being pulled under by the INFERI and then we cut back to present day.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS’S ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

We see Kreacher, tears in his eyes and rocking back and forth as he tells the story. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are now sitting in front of him, a look of amazement in their eyes.

HARRY
How did you get away?

Kreacher looks up at Harry.

KREACHER
Master Regulus told Kreacher to come back.

HARRY
I know, but how did you escape the Inferi?

KREACHER
Master Regulus told Kreacher to come back.

HARRY
But you couldn’t Apparate in and out of that cave otherwise Dumbledore…

RON
Elf magic isn’t like wizard magic Harry.

KREACHER
The house elf’s highest law is his Master’s bidding. Kreacher was told to come home, so Kreacher came home.

HARRY
So what did Regulus say when you told him what happened?

KREACHER
Master was very worried, very worried…Master told Kreacher to stay hidden and not to leave the house. And then…it was a little while later…Master Regulus came to find Kreacher.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS ROOM-PAST

The scene cuts to Regulus standing in his room. He puts some books in a chest and pushes it under his bed. He pulls out the fake locket and looks at it for a moment. He puts it in his pocket and looks down at Kreacher.

REGULUS
Kreacher…I need you to take to the cave. Take me to the cave the Dark Lord took you.

KREACHER
Yes Master.

Regulus grabs Kreachers arm and BOOM they disappeared.

INT. CAVE ENTRANCE-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Kreacher putting blood on the wall and it peeling away slowly. Regulus slowly follows Kreacher in and it cuts to them in the boat as it lands in the island in the middle of the lake. Regulus walks up to the basin and looks down into it. He takes the fake locket out of his pocket and stares at it for a moment.

REGULUS
I want you to take this Kreacher and once the basin is empty…I want you to switch lockets.

KREACHER
But Master the potion does terrible…

REGULUS
That’s an order Kreacher!

He hands the locket to Kreacher.

REGULUS
I want you to leave without me. Go home and never tell my mother about this and I want you to destroy the locket Kreacher.

KREACHER
Yes…yes Master….

Regulus begins to drink the potion and yell out in pain.

KREACHER (V.O.)
And master drank it…drank all the potion..and when he was done Kreacher swapped lockets…

We see Kreacher switch out lockets as Regulus lays on the ground in pain. He looks up at Kreacher who bows and walks towards the boat. The boat begins to move once Kreacher is in it and we see Regulus reach down for water. All of a sudden the Inferi begin to pull him under.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher watched…as Master Regulus…was dragged beneath the water…and….

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS’S ROOM-PRESENT DAY

The scene cuts back to Kreacher staring blankly into the distance. Hermione has a hand over her mouth as tears slowly form in her eyes.

KREACHER
Nothing Kreacher did made any mark on the locket. Kreacher tried everything but it would not open. So many powerful spells upon the casing. Kreacher failed to obey orders….

He starts to cry loudly.

HARRY
Kreacher…where is the locket?

Kreacher looks up at Harry and stares blankly at him. Does he tell him? It is a direct order afterall.

KREACHER
Kreacher hid it. Kreacher hid it so no one could find it.

HARRY
Could you bring it to me Kreacher? I can destroy it for Master Regulus.

KREACHER
Yes…master…

Kreacher stands up.

HARRY
Before you go though.

Harry hands the fake locket to Kreacher.

HARRY
I’d like you to have this. This belonged to Regulus and I’m sure he’d want you to have it as a token of gratitide for what you…

Tears begin to roll down Kreachers eyes

KREACHER
Th…thank you..Master…

Kreacher looks down at the locket and then POOF he is gone.

RON
Why’d you give him the fake locket already? How do you know he’ll actually bring you the real locket….

HARRY
I trust Kreacher. I think…I think he hates Voldemort for what he did to his master and will do anything to stop him.

HERMIONE
Well I’ll get to reading the books. See what Regulus found out.

Harry nods as Hermione walks over to the trunk. The camera slowly pans up once again to a shot of the faceplate and slowly fades to a wideshot of a rainy London.
  


The Horcruxes:    


  EXT. LONDON-ALLEYWAY-MIDDAY
We pan down into the alleyway to see Harry, covered in a raincoat walking quickly. He walks near the edge of the alleyway and pauses. Standing in front of Grimmauld Place are 10 Death Eaters. They are all just standing there staring ahead. He turns and see’s if anyone is looking and SWOOSH he apparates onto the top step of Grimmauld Place. He stands there for a second looking out at the Death Eaters standing in front of the house. There are about 10 of them standing there now. He sighs and opens the door. The door closes behind him.

HARRY (O.S.)
You guys won’t believe it…

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. The camera shows a picture of Snape standing in front of a podium and it reads ‘SEVERUS SNAPE CONFIRMED AS HOWGWARTS NEW HEADMASTER’

HERMIONE
No!

HARRY
And even better. There are about 10 Death Eaters standing outside of here.

HERMIONE
They can’t see this place. You have to know it’s here to see it….we’re safe…

HARRY
But why would they come here?

HERMIONE
Sirius’s will. He left you this home and if the Ministry kept his will like they did Dumbledore’s they’ll know you’re here.

Harry takes a seat in a chair. Hermione walks over and picks the book up.

HERMIONE
Well I see now why this topic was banned in school. Horcruxes…they’re horrible, horrible things. I’ve never read a book so dark.

HARRY
Any word on how to destroy them?

HERMIONE
Yes, well, from what I’ve read what Harry did to Riddle’s diary was one of the few really foolproof ways of destroying a Horcrux.

RON
Stabbing it with a basilisk fang? Lucky we’ve got such a large supply of those…

HERMIONE
It has to be something so destructive that the Horcrux can’t repair itself. Basilisk venom can only be destroyed by one thing….

HARRY
Phoenix tears.

RON
Did you read anything on if you make a Horcrux, somehow putting the pieces of your soul back together?

HERMIONE
Well the pieces of the souls are always drawn to each other anyway. The soul isn’t meant to be split. If Voldemort himself wants to put his soul back together he would have to feel remorse. You’ve got to really feel what you’ve done. The pain is said to be unbearable and can destroy you….

RON
I can see him doing that.

HARRY
So we know how to atleast destroy it. I don’t see how we’re going to get baskilisk venom but we still don’t know what the other Horcruxes are.

HERMIONE
I wouldn’t be so sure Harry.

Hermione walks over and gets another large black book. She sits it on the table and opens it.

HERMIONE
I was reading through this book and it seems Regulus left a few notes.

They all look into the book and the camera focuses on it’s pages.

HERMIONE
See..there…strange things. But here there is a list. I’m not sure how he found out…I’m sure it took a long time…

HARRY
It says ring, diary, snake…

RON
And he has in parenthesis Hogwart’s Founders heirlooms with a question mark. What’s that supposed to mean?

HARRY
I think R.A.B. figured out what Voldemort’s Horcruxes were. Look it makes sense. Ring. Dumbledore destroyed it. It belonged to Riddle’s mother. He told me so last year. The locket he went to find himself.

HERMIONE
Do you think the locket could be from Slytheran? Which would make it one of the Hogwart’s Founders heirloom.

HARRY
It would make sense. Riddle is his descendent.

RON
And snake?

HARRY
Dunno….Nagini his snake maybe? Hermione did the book so it was possible for Horcrux’s to be put into something living?

HERMIONE
It’s possible but extremely risky.

HARRY
I destroyed the diary in my 2nd year which means we have….

HERMIONE
5 to destroy.

RON
Yeah and they can be anywhere!

HARRY
Well atleast we kind of know what to look for now. It’s a start.

KREACHER (O.S.)
Master.

They turn around to see Kreacher standing there with the fake locket around his neck. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out the real locket.

KREACHER
This is for you.

Harry stares at the locket. There seems to be a hissing sound coming from within it. Harry slowly walks towards Kreacher, as though he’s mesmerized by it. He kneels down and looks at it. He reaches out and it seems the locket leaps into Harry’s hand. He stares down at it.

HERMIONE
Harry?

It looks as the locket has Harry under some sort of trance. He continues to gaze down at it.

HERMIONE
HARRY!

Harry jumps and looks back at her. He then looks down at Kreacher and smiles.

HARRY
Thanks so much for this Kreacher.

Kreacher smiles as he wraps his hand around the fake locket and slowly walks out of the room. Harry stands up and faces Ron and Hermione.

RON
So that’s it? How do we know that elf isn’t jipping us?

HARRY
It’s the real one…there’s something dark about it. Dumbledore told me that dark magic leaves traces….

He holds it out and Hermione takes it. Harry moves his neck slightly as Hermione and Ron stare at the locket. Both seem to be uneasy with it.

HERMIONE
You’re right Harry. There’s something dark about this thing.

RON
So now what?

HARRY
We find out how to destroy it.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a shot of Harry sleeping. The locket is around his neck and he is tossing and turning. There is a SWOOSH.

INT. HOGWARTS-DUMBLEDORE’S OFFICE-DREAM

We see Harry standing in front of Dumbledore in his office.

HARRY
So if we destroy all of them….

DUMBLEDORE
One kills Voldemort….

The scene cuts to Dumbledore placing the diary and the locket on his desk.

DUMBLEDORE
Magic…dark magic…it leaves…..

We see Harry touch the ring and it begins to spin.

DUMBLEDORE (O.S.)
Traces…

There is a FLASH and

INT. HOGWARTS-ASTRONOMY TOWER-NIGHT

Harry is standing on the Astronomy Tower. He looks up and see’s Dumbledore standing in front of him.

DUMBLEDORE
Trust me.

There is another flash and Harry is now below. He looks up and see’s Dumbledore standing there. He turns and standing behind him is Snape who puts his finger to his mouth. Harry nods. FLASH.

SEVERUS
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM the spell hits Dumbledore and we see the green light reflect on Harry.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

Harry opens his eyes. He sits up panting and grasps the locket around his neck. He does the neck twich.
  


The Intruder:    


  EXT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-STREET-MIDDAY-MONTHS LATER

We see a shot of Grimmauld Place covered in snow. We see Death Eaters in front of the house casting spells trying to discover something but failing. The camera pans backwards and a dark figure steps into the frame looking ahead.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KITCHEN-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Ron using his wand to have dishes float in the air. One by one he starts to make them explode. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM. We see Hermione walk in behind him.

HERMIONE
Ronald! Stop it! What are you doing?

Ron turns around, his concentration broken, and all the dishes CRASH into the ground.

HERMIONE
What’s all this?

RON
I’m going to repair them.

HERMIONE
That’s beside the point…

RON
I’m bored Hermione! After all this time you’d think we’d be further along. I didn’t think we’d still be sitting here!

HERMIONE
We’re doing the best we can Ron. That book takes time to decipher and I’m doing my best.

RON
I just thought Harry would….

He pauses and frowns.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-STAIRWAY-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry standing on the stairwell listening to them.

HERMIONE (O.S.)
He’s doing the best he can Ron. I know it’s frustrating. I too thought this would be a bit more exciting but we don’t even know where to begin looking for the remaining Horcruxes.

RON(O.S.)
I could be with my family.

HERMIONE(O.S.)
I know…but we promised we’d stick with him….

SWOOSH the dust start to form in front of Harry. He backs up in surprise the figure of Dumbledore forms and begins to move down the hall. Someone was inside. Harry pulls out his wand and points it at the door. POOF the dust disappears.


HARRY
Who’s there?

We see the figure standing there silent in the dark.

HARRY
SHOW YOURSELF!

The figure slowly walks into the light and it’s SNAPE who is carrying a large BAG on 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
And what exactly did I do 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 snowy woods. We see Ron standing next to a tree.

EXT. WOODS-MOMENTS LATER

HARRY
WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!?! 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. We got the locket…let’s focus on the mission before revenge.

HARRY
It’s all my fault. I dream about it every night. I could have stopped him from killing Dumbledore. I trusted him…I TRUSTED HIM!!!


HERMIONE
Give me the locket Harry.

Harry looks up at Hermione curiously. 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
  


Camping and the revelation:    


  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.

She smiles at Harry and the scene cuts to a shot of the tent next to a lake. We cut to them sitting at the table. Ron is picking at his food.

HERMIONE
Do you have any idea where You-Know-Who’s Horcruxes could be?

HARRY
Do you think he could have hid one at Borgin and Burkes? You know he went into exile in Albania for a while….

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

HARRY
I have a feeling however, that there’s one in Hogwarts.

HERMIONE
But don’t you think Dumbledore would’ve found it there?

HARRY
Dumbledore said that he never assumed he knew all of Hogwart’s secrets. I’m telling you, if there’s one place Vol…

RON
Harry!

HARRY
Right…You-Know-Who. If there was one place that was really important it was Hogwarts. It was his first real home, the place that meant he was special; it meant everything to him, and even after he left…

RON
This is You Know Who we’re talking bout, not you.

The tugs at the locket around his neck and starts poking at his plate again.

RON
I can’t keep eating this rubbish.

HERMIONE
Rubbish? Harry caught that fish and I did my best with it! I notice I’m always 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! My mother can make good food appear out of thin air.

HERMIONE
It’s impossible to make good food out of nothing! You can summon it if you know where it is, you can transform it, and you can increase the quantity if you’ve already got some….

RON
Well don’t bother increasing this, it’s disgusting.

He pushes his plate away and walks away. We see sadness fill Hermione’s eyes. Harry stares at Ron as the scene fades to a shot of…

EXT. MOUNTAINS/WOODS/MONTAGE-WINTER

Harry, Ron, and Hermione walking through the snow. We see them set up the tent in different locations. We see Hermione and Harry walk ahead as Ron watches them from a distance. We see Hermione standing outside setting up protections. She pauses and looks as she notices 3 figures walking in the distance. Harry walks up behind her and they both stare down at the figures

EXT. WOODS-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hermione and Harry walking down the hill towards the figures. The three are now sitting around a fire and they’re roasting fish over it. Harry puts his finger up over his lip signaling for her to remain quiet. They stand behind a huge tree and they’re able to see that the people are GRIPHOOK the goblin, TED TONKS, another goblin named FRED.

EXT. WOOD-CAMPFIRE-MOMENTS LATER-NIGHT

TED
I’ve been on the run for about six weeks now. 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.

TED
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.

The two goblins look at each other and begin to laugh.

TED
Oh?

GRIPHOOK
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 Harry and Hermione.

TED
Never heard a word. 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 and Fred burst out into laughter again. Ted looks confused.

TED
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.

INT. WOODS-TENT-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione bursting into the tent. Ron looks around, visibly angry.

RON
Where were you two?

HARRY
We saw some people. Thought we’d go down and investigate.

RON
Didn’t bother to let me know did you?

HERMIONE
Not now Ron…we just found out something….something incredible…

The scene cuts to Hermione pulling out the portrait of Phinieas Black. She props it up against the table and kneels in front of it.

HARRY
You think he’ll answer this time?

HERMIONE
Let’s cross our fingers. Phineas Nigellus? Professor Black? Could we talk to you?

PHINIEAS (O.S.)
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…

HERMIONE
Silly girl?

PHINEAS
Yes this young girl…Weasley I think is her name…her and her friends tried to take the sword out of the Headmaster’s office.

HARRY
Ginny?

PHINEAS
Yes that is her name….

RON
What happened to her you git!

PHINEAS
So much anger I sense. Besides 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
Luna and Neville. Sir…how did Snape punish them?

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

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

HERMIONE
Professor Black. Is it possible for you to bring Dumbledore 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.
  


Ron's Departure:    


  HERMIONE
Harry!

HARRY
I know!

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..

HARRY
Well, you’ve obviously got a problem. 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.

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, good thing your house elf had it. 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. I heard you two talking back in Grimmauld Place.

RON
This is pathetic.

HARRY
So why are you still here?

RON
Search me!

Ron storms out of the tent. 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?

HARRY
What about them?

RON
For all we know something could have happened to them because of what Ginny did. You didn’t think about that did you? 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!

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.

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. Harry walks over and picks up the Horcrux staring down at it. The camera slowly zooms in onto the locket.

INT. THE WOODS-WEEKS LATER

The scene fades to Hermione shooting protective spells around the snowy tent. Once she casts the final spell she wipes tears from her face and walks slowly back into the tent.

INT. THE WOODS-THE TENT-MOMENTS LATER

HERMIONE
They’re all up. Has Phineas been back yet?

HARRY
No, but he’ll be back soon enough. He’s been good company the past few weeks since….

He looks up at the hurt expression on her face and quickly changes the subject.

HARRY
Hermione I’ve been thinking. I want to go to Godric’s Hollow.

HERMIONE
That’s not a good idea Harry. Don’t you think You-Know-Who will know you want to visit your parents grave.

HARRY
Not just that…look…

He hands Hermione his mothers letter.

HARRY
I found this at Grimmauld Place. It’s from my mum. She mentions Bathilda Bagshot.

HERMIONE
Bathilda Bagshot? The author of ‘A History of Magic?’ I didn’t know she was from there.

HARRY
She would visit them and she told them stories of Dumbledore. The letter stops there. Do you think Dumbledore could’ve asked her to keep a Horcrux?

HERMIONE
It’s possible…

HARRY
Plus I’m sure Dumbledore knew I wanted to go back there. Plus the fact that’s he’s from there…

HERMIONE
True, Godric Gryffindor aswell.

HARRY
Gryffindor? We have to go Hermione! What else do we have to lose?

HERMIONE
Ok we can go. I’m brewing Polyjuice Potion at the moment and we can disguise ourselves as other people.

HARRY
How long until it’s done?

HERMIONE
Oh a few weeks….

HARRY
A few weeks! Hermione that’s to long. Listen we’ll be fine. We have the cloak and I’ll have you there with me.

Hermione stares at Harry and sighs.

HERMIONE
When did you become so persuasive?

Harry shrugs and smiles and the scene cuts to a wideshot of GODRIC’S HALLOW. The camera pans down into the town. We see 4 pair of footsteps appear in the snow.

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

Thanks for the feedback Phrozenone! I changed some of it, but I'm not quite sure which lines you feel don't work. Can you tell me so I can change it?

And wow, you have written a lot! I only read the first one yet. Is it meant to be from DH 1? The flashbacks and the newspapers were a good idea, although I feel that this line by Voldemort is a villain-cliche: "A prophecy said that you would be the one to defeat me and I am here to make sure that it is not so." However, it's important to the plot so don't cut the line - just change it a bit without loosing the information. Something like "So you are the boy the prophecy said would defeat me." (Laughing) "Avada Kadevra!"

Or this one (similar to yours): "A prophecy said that you would be the one to defeat me. I don't think so!"

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

Thanks Noldus!

Hmmmm let me read through it again *strolls up* Ah!

I thought that Tom's "If so, then I will not follow you!' feels a bit...much. I think just leaving it at 'Is that a place for mad people?' does it well. Or change it up to be 'It's a place for mad people isn't it?' I just feel the 'If so, then I will not follow you' is a lead in to the musical version of HBP. If sooooo...I will not follow you u u u!!!

Also I think cutting the 'See you at Hogwarts' then' will make the scene flow aswell. Just have Dumbledore say goodbye and turn to leave and Tom ask about the Snakes. Also I feel (although what you have is fine) that you should keep the lines that Harry/Dumbledore say right after Harry leaves the Pensieve the same. 'Did you know...' After Dumbledore answers have Harry think for a bit and then ask about his mother like in your script. I think the 'Did you know...' is a natural first response instead of his mother you know?

So if you added that then you'd have to change ur line from Dumbledore slightly.

Quote:
Poor boy! I should have seen it. He talked to snakes, he obviously knew dark magic and he stole from the other children.
Those were just a few things I noticed while reading nothing major. Like I said good job and yeah that first bit is the opening of DH. Yeah the line is a bit cliche. Harry Potter always needs one so I thought hey why not start it out right I'll try and rework it though. Thanks!

Alright everyone. It's been a while! Since my laptop is out of order at the moment I won't be able to bring my Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 up yet. So I decided to try and do a one shot DH for fun.

Warning to all this isn't for the faint at heart. Alot is different and is excluded. Since it's one film only the important elements stay and shortcuts have be taken numerous times. Let me know what you guys think.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Screenplay by: Phrozenone
Based on the book by: JK Rowling

The Boy Who Lived:    


  The WB logo slowly comes towards the screen. Lightening flashes and breaks off pieces of the logo as the camera passes through the symbol. The camera descends out of the clouds over the village of GODRICS HALLOW. The camera closes in on a DARK FIGURE walking along the dark street. The word’s 17 years ago appear on the screen.

EXT. GODRICS HOLLOW-17 YEARS AGO-NIGHT

The hooded figure stops and stares at a house in front of him. We see a close up of his eyes as he smiles. Inside we see JAMES POTTER playing with a baby HARRY POTTER. He’s flying him through the air. LILY POTTER walks into the frame and kisses James and takes Harry. James kisses Harry and Lily exits. The figure pulls his hood back and it is VOLDEMORT. He reaches out and slowly opens the gate and continues forward. He points his wand at the door and BOOM it flies open.

INT. GODRICS HALLOW-POTTER HIDING PLACE-NIGHT

As he steps into the house JAMES POTTER runs into the hallway.

JAMES
Lily, take Harry and go! It’s him! Go! Run! I’ll hold him off!

James pulls out his wand and BOOM Voldemort knocks it out of his hand.

JAMES
LILY!!!

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM the spell hits James and he falls to the floor dead. We hear baby Harry crying upstairs. Voldemort looks up and leaps up the stairs in one motion. He walks towards the close bedroom door. He points his wand at a closed door and BOOM it flies open. Inside is LILY POTTER who is holding her son. At the sight of Voldemort she puts Harry into the crib and stands in front of him.

LILY
Not Harry, not Harry, please not Harry!

VOLDEMORT
Stand aside, you silly girl…stand aside now…

LILY
Not Harry, please no, take me, kill me instead….

VOLDEMORT
This is my last warning….

LILY
Have mercy…please…I’ll do anything….

VOLDEMORT
Stand aside, girl!

LILY
No!

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM a green light shoots out and hits Lily. She falls to the floor dead. Voldemort then slowly walks up to the baby who is looking up at him. He points his wand at Harry’s head.

VOLDEMORT
A prophecy said that you would be the one to defeat me and I am here to make sure that it is not so. Avada Kadavra!

SWOOSH the spell backfires turning Voldemort into nothing more than dust. He screams out in pain as the house around him starts to collapse. The dust flies out of the house screaming as the walls around start to tumble. We see the baby laying down as if he’s dead in the crip. The screen goes black.

EXT. GODRICS HALLOW

HAGRID (O.S.)
I hear sumin’…over der!

The scene cuts to HAGRID tossing aside the rubble. We hear a baby crying. He pulls back a large board that’s over the crib. He looks down and gently lifts the baby out of it.

HAGRID
Is alri little one…yer safe. I won’ let anything happen to yer.

The baby curls up in Hagrids arm. Hagrid smiles as he wipes the dirt off of Harry’s face.

HAGRID
Lil’ Harry’s okay Dumbledore!

The camera pans over to show ALBUS DUMBLEDORE walking up to Harry. He places his hand on Harry and runs his finger across the scar. His eyes widen and he looks up at Hagrid. The camera pans back upwards towards the sky.

MCGONAGALL (O.S.)
This boy will be famous, there won’t be a wizard in our world that won’t know his name.

We see a newspaper flying in the wind. It flies towards the camera and BOOM slams into it. On the cover we see a picture of Harry when he’s 11. The caption reads ‘THE BOY WHO LIVED’ The page turns to show him standing in front of OLLIVANDER. Harry takes the wand and a wind blows. The page turns to show Harry standing in front of the MIRROR OF ERISED. The page turns to show Harry stabbing TOM RIDDLE’S diary. The page then turns to show Harry and Sirius. The page turns again to show Harry and Voldemort facing off in the graveyard. The page then turns to show Harry standing in the Ministry of Magic with photagrophers all around him. Dumbledore walks up behind him and places his arm around him and the caption reads ‘HE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED RETURNS’ The page turns again to show Harry hiding under the Astronomy Tower. We see SEVERUS SNAPE hit Dumbledore with a spell knocking him off the tower. The page turns again to show a WHITE TOMB on the cover and the headline reads ‘DUMBLEDORE LAID TO REST ON HOGWARTS GROUNDS’ All of a sudden the fire begins to surround the newspaper. As it burns we see Voldemort’s face behind it. The camera pans back to show him sitting in front of a table.
  


The Dark Lord Ascending:    


  INT. MALFOY MANOR-NIGHT-PRESENT DAY

VOLDEMORT
17 years it’s been since that night. Years of failure on my part but now I know what must be done. It is I who must destroy Harry Potter once and for all.

The camera shifts to show a group of Death Eaters sitting down the long table including Snape, BELLATRIX LESTRANGE, DRACO MALFOY, NARCISSA MALFOY, LUCIUS MALOY, YAXLEY, WORMTAIL, DOLOHOV, and a few other death eaters all looking towards the head of the table at Voldemort.

VOLDEMORT
Any news on the boy Severus?

SNAPE
Yes my lord. The Order of the Phoenix intends to move Harry Potter from his current place of safety on Saturday at nightfall.

BELLATRIX
Do you honestly believe him my lord? I know Snape killed Dumbledore but I still don’t trust him…

VOLDEMORT
What better proof do I need that Severus does indeed serve me? Do you question my judgement Bellatrix?

BELLATRIX
No my lord…never….

VOLDEMORT
Good. Where do we lie within the Ministry Yaxley?

YAXLEY
We have several people planted within the Department of Magical Transport. If Potter Apparates or uses the Floo Network, we shall know immediately.

SNAPE
He will not do either. The Order is eschewing any form of transport that is controlled or regulated by the Ministry; they mistrust everything to do with that place.

Voldemort looks over at Lucius who looks away nervously. Narcissa holds onto his arm tightly and Draco is looking down.

VOLDEMORT
Why do the Malfoys look so unhappy with their lot? Is my return, my rise to power, not the very thing they professed to desire for so many years?

LUCIUS
Of course, my Lord. We did desire it….we do….

BELLATRIX
My Lord…it is an honor to have you here, in our family’s house. There can be no higher pleaser.

VOLDEMORT
That means a great deal, Bellatrix, from you.

She smiles at him with a look of longing in her eyes and we hear a whimper from the person rotating above the table.

VOLDEMORT
Wormtail! Have I spoken to you about keeping our guest quiet?

WORMTAIL
Yes..my…my…Lord….

The camera pans up to show CHARITY BABAGE rotating above the table. Tears are running from her eyes and she hangs suspended by what seems to be an invisible rope.

VOLDEMORT
Do you recognize our guest Severus? Draco? This is of course one of the teachers at Hogwarts…she taught the course…ah Muggle Studies am I correct?

He looks over at Draco who nods slightly and a smile draws across Voldemorts face.

CHARITY BURBAGE
Severus…please….please….

The camera now shows NAGINI slowly slithering past everyone’s feet. Voldemort reaches out his hand and she begins to slither up his arms and rests on his shoulder. We hear Nagini say something in parseltongue and the smile on Voldemorts face grows wider.

VOLDEMORT
It seems Nagini is hungry….

He looks up at Charity and smiles and tears start to fall quickly from her eyes. Voldemort points his wand at Burbage.

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

The scene cuts to a outside shot of MALFOY MANOR. We see a flash of green out of one of the windows. The camera quickly turns upwards and passes through the cloud. The title ‘HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS’ appear in the clouds. The camera passes through the title the clouds slowly dissolve and focus on HARRY POTTER’S scar. The camera pans back to show Harry’s face. He is sitting on his bed looking at a note.
  


The Dursley's Departed:    


  INT. DURSLEY’S HOME-HARRY’S BEDROOM-NIGHT

REGULUS (V.O.)
To the Dark Lord, I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match, you will be mortal once more. R.A.B.

Harry folds the note and places it back in the fake locket. He looks over at his owl HEDWIG.

HARRY
R.A.B. I don’t even know where to begin Hedwig.

Harry walks over and strokes Hedwig on her beak. He then turns and looks around his room. All of his belongings are packed and the room is bare.

HARRY
It’s going to be kind of weird not coming back here every summer.

UNCLE VERNON (O.S.)
HARRY POTTER!

Harry sighs and walks out of his room.

INT. THE DURSLEYS-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

Harry walks down the stairs and the camera pans over to show VERNON, PETUNIA, AND DUDLEY DURSLEY standing in the living room with all their bags packed.

VERNON
I’ve decided I don’t believe a word of it. We’re staying here!

HARRY
This is for your own good Uncle Vernon. Once I’m seventeen, the protective charm that Dumbledore put on this house will break and that exposes you as well as me. You’ve got to go into hiding and the Order wants to help. You’re being offered serious protection….

VERNON
But what about my work? What about Dudley’s school? I don’t suppose those things matter to a bunch of layabout wizards….

HARRY
Don’t you understand? They will torture and kill you like they did my parents!

VERNON
Petunia and I have decided that we are staying….

DUDLEY
Dad…I’m going with these Order people.

They all look over at Dudley and Harry gives him a slight smile as we hear a knock on the door. Harry opens the door and in walks HESTIA and DEDALUS.

HESTIA
Harry Potter!

DEDALUS
An honor, as ever!

HARRY
Thanks…come on in. Well here they are. My aunt, uncle, and cousin….

DEDALUS
Good day to you, Harry Potter relatives!

HESTIA
So is everything ready to go?

HARRY
Yes.

The Dursleys all grab their bags in that are sitting in the hallway.

VERNON
Well, this is good-bye, then, boy.

PETUNIA
Ready, Diddy?

She looks at Dudley who is staring at Harry.

VERNON
Come along, then….

DUDLEY
I don’t understand. Why isn’t Harry coming with us? Where is he going to go?

Vernon and Petunia both look at each other nervously.

HESTIA
Surely you must know where your nephew is going?

HARRY
They don’t…they don’t know anything about me…they think I’m a waste of space but I’m used to….

DUDLEY
I don’t think you’re a waste of space. You saved my life….

Everyone looks up at Dudley with shock in their eyes.

VERNON
Are we going or not? I thought we were on a tight schedule.

DEDALUS
That we are! We really must be off. Good luck Harry Potter. I hope we meet again. The hopes of the Wizarding world rest upon your shoulders.

HESTIA
Farewell, Harry, our thoughts go with you.

They all begin to exit and Dudley walks over to Harry and holds out his hand.

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

DUDLEY
Dunno…see you, Harry.

Harry takes his hand and shakes it.

HARRY
Yeah…maybe…take care, Big D.

Dudley and Harry both smile at each other and Dudley grabs his bags and exits. Petunia and Harry stand alone together in the hallway.

PETUNIA
Well…good bye….

HARRY
Good-bye.

She walks towards the door and pauses. She looks back at Harry as if she wanted to say something but turns and closes the door behind her leaving Harry standing alone in the house. The scene fades to Harry sitting his firebolt in the living room along with all his other bags. He looks around at the place and starts to talk to Hedwig who is sitting in her cage, which is on the table in the middle of the room.

HARRY
Look Hedwig…that’s where I used to sleep. You never knew me then….it’s so small…I’d forgotten…

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


The Seven Potters:    


  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, GINNY, MR. WEASLEY, TONKS, LUPIN, and KINGSLEY.

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

Harry and Ginny lock eyes for a moment and smile at each other.

MAD EYE
Change of plan. Since You-Know-Who has contacts inside the Ministry now it’ll be impossible to use magic around you.

HARRY
What do you mean Mad-Eye?

MOODY
You’re underage! If you, or anyone around you, casts a spell to get you out of here the Death Eaters will know about it.

HARRY
So what are we going to do?

MOODY
We’re going to use the only means of transport left to us, the only one’s the Trace can’t detect. Hagrid has his motorbike and the rest of us will have to use brooms. Now, your mother’s charm will only break under two conditions: when you come of age or you no longer call this place home. Once you leave here, the charm will be broken.

HARRY
Where will we be going? The Burrow?

MR. WEASLEY
Not quite. The house is still being repaired from the attack last year but it should be ready in a few days.

GINNY
Plus we think they’ll expect you to go there.

HARRY
So where?

TONKS
We’ll be meeting at our place Harry. We call it our Shell Cottage.

She smiles and grabs Lupin’s arm.

LUPIN
We have protection set up around a 30-mile radius around the area so just in case, they can’t pinpoint a location.

HARRY
There’s one problem though…won’t it be obvious if all of us are flying there?

MOODY
I forgot to mention...there will be seven Harry Potters moving through the skies tonight.

He reaches into his cloak and pulls out a flask.

HARRY
What? No! That’s polyjuice potion isn’t it? If you think I’m going to let six people risk their lives….

RON
Because it’s the first time for all of us….

HARRY
This is different….pretending to be me….

FRED
Well, none of us really fancy it, Harry.

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

MOODY
Now lets have a few of your hairs boy! The only way to get you out of here safely is to have decoys!

HARRY
But…..

Moody walks over and plucks a few hairs out of Harry’s head.

MOODY
Right then…fake Potters line up over here, please.

Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, and Ginny line up on the other side of the kitchen while Moody pours the potion in separate cups.

HARRY
Wait…there’s only 5 of you. Who’s the 6th?

DOBBY (O.S.)
Harry Potter!

Harry jumps in shock and turns around to see DOBBY the houself standing behind him.

HARRY
Dobby? How long have you been here?

DOBBY
I’ve been here the whole time sir.

MOODY
Come here elf!

HARRY
Wait…Dobby? I didn’t know houselves could use the potion.

HERMIONE
Well it’s possible…although it against their nature to do so but…

DOBBY
Dobby would do anything to help Harry Potter. Anything.

Harry smiles as Mad Eye hands each of them their cup.

MAD EYE
All together then.

They all take a big gulp of the drink. They all frown at the disgusting taste (although Dobby appears to really enjoy it) and all of a sudden all of their features start to change into Harry. Harry stares in disbelief as now there are six other Harry Potter’s standing in front of him. They all look at each other in shock.

FRED AND GEORGE
Wow…we’re identical!

HERMIONE
Harry your eyesight really is awful! I can’t see a thing without your glasses.

Dobby lets out a loud yelp and starts to dance around the room. They all stare at him.

HARRY
Dobby…DOBBY…what is it?

DOBBY
Dobby never dreamed that he would possibly get to BE Harry Potter!

He gives a smile and we see Mad Eye roll his eye.

EXT. DURSLEY’S BACKYARD-MOMENTS LATER

The scene everyone walking outside.

HAGRID
You’re with me, Harry. That all righ?

RON
I’m not Harry this is Ron.

HAGRID
Oh…’arry?

HERMIONE
Hermione. I think Harry went upstairs to get his things Hagrid.

Hagrid looks as the real Harry walks out with Hedwig’s cage and a briefcase. Lupin walks out carrying Harry’s firebold.

HAGRID
Oh there ye are ‘arry! We’ll be on the bike, brooms can’t take me weight see. You’ll be in the sidecar.

MOODY
Everyone on your transport!

Everyone get’s on their brooms. Harry places Hedwig in the sidecar before he gets in.

HARRY
Hagrid, is this Sirius bike?

HAGRID
The very same. An’ last time yeh was on it, Harry, I could fit yeh in one hand!

MOODY
Good luck everyone, see you all in about an hour at the Shell Cottage. On the count of three. One….two…THREE!

SWOOSH everyone takes off into the night sky. Hagrid starts the bike and races out of the back yard onto the street, almost slamming into a parked car. He stops it and reeves the engine.

HARRY
Hagrid?

HAGRID
We got ter get ‘er started good before we take ‘off ‘arry. Hold on!

VROOM Hagrid races down the street. He clicks a button and SWOOSH they are airborne. The camera pans up to show Hagrids bike soaring into the night sky.

EXT. LONDON SKYLINE-NIGHT

We see an overhead shot of London at night. SWOOSH we see Lupin with one of the Harry decoys and Tonks with another fly past the camera. The camera pans up to show Mad Eye circling keeping a watch out. Hagrid’s bike flies into view as they fly over the city.

HAGRID
We’ll be there in no time ‘Arry!

Harry grabs his scar as it bursts into pain.

HAGRID
‘Arry what’s wrong?

HARRY
I…I don’t know…

SWOOSH out of nowhere Death Eaters appear around them. Hagrid quickly pulls to his left narrowly avoiding hitting one of the newly apparated Death Eaters. BAM spells are now being flown throughout the air. We see the Harry decoys start to separate and dodge the spells. Hagrid turns sharp avoiding a spell thrown by a Death Eater. We see Bellatrix on a broom flying towards Tonks. BOOM a spell is thrown that Tonks quickly deflects. She turns upwards quickly as the Harry decoy holds onto her tightly. We now see Snape flying next to another Death Eater. They’re closing in on Kingsley and another Harry decoy. Snape looks over at the Death Eater. They both pull out their wands and the camera quickly DIPS to show Moody blasting away the Death Eaters.The scene shifts to Harry in Hagrids sidecar. A Death Eater appears behind them and fires a spell.

HARRY
Protego!

SMACK the spell is blocked. Harry turns around and notices a group of Death Eaters all lined up in front of them. He looks back and notices that they are surrounded.

HARRY
Hagrid!

HAGRID
Don’ worry ‘arry, we’ll lose em!

BAM Hagrid dips quickly and makes a sharp turn and BAM flies into one of the skyscrapers.

INT. SKYSCRAPER- OFFICE-NIGHT

We see Hagrid fly through the mostly deserted office. The poor night shift workers dive as Hagrid’s bike flies through and trashes most of their office. Two Death Eaters quickly fly through the hole in the window following them. Harry looks back and points his wand.

HARRY
Impedimenta!

SWOOSH the first dives to the side but BAM the other is hit by the spell being thrown off of his broom and landing on one of the desks. BAM they crash through the window on the opposite side. Hagrid turns quickly and the bike does a 360. While upside down Harry’s broom and Hedwig’s cage both fall out of the sidecar. Harry quickly reaches and grabs the cage as the broom continues to fall and BAM we see a green light hit it.

HARRY
NO!!!!!!!!!!

The bike turns right side up again and Hagrid quickly avoids another spell. Harry, with tears in his eyes, quickly opens the cage, pulls out Hedwigs lifeless body, and holds it close to him.

HARRY
Hedwig….Hedwig…..

The camera then pulls up to show Voldemort simply floating above the city. He is watching the battle below trying to find the real Harry Potter. The scene then cuts to a Death Eater pulling beside Hagrid on his broom. BAM Hagrid kicks him off of his broom. SWOOSH we see Mad Eye pull up quickly beside them (taking out a Death Eater in the process)

MAD EYE
The Dark Lord….he’s up there!

Hagrid and Harry both look up and notice Voldemort simply floating above them all.

MAD EYE
I’ll distract him. Get Harry into the protection…NOW!!!

HARRY
Professor Moody…wait…!

SWOOSH Moody pulls up and flies towards Voldemort. BOOM he throws a spell that Voldemort quickly deflects. He continues to throw spells that Voldemort deflect with ease. BOOM Voldemort knocks the broom from under Moody but before he falls Voldemort SWOOPS down and grabs him by the neck. Harry looks up and see’s Voldemort and Moody hanging above the skyline. Hagrid quickly dips and turns around a building and now they’re out of sight. The camera cuts back to Voldemort and Moody hanging mid air. Moody gasps for breath as Voldemort stares at him. He places his wand right on Moody’s stomach.

VOLDEMORT
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM we see the spell hit Moody and Voldemort lets him go and we see Moody fall.
  


Harry's Spell:    


  EXT. SHORELINE/FIELD-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hagrid quickly flying across a barren landscape. Two Death Eaters are quickly gaining on them.

HAGRID
Almost there ‘arry!

Hagrid makes another turn as a Death Eater sends a spell. The spell misses them and Harry turns and points his wand.

HARRY
Stupefy!

BOOM the spell is fired but misses the Death Eater but he moves so quickly to avoid it that his hood flies off and it is STAN SHUNPIKE.

HARRY
Stan?

Stan points his wand at Harry.

HARRY
Expelliarmus!

BOOM his wand is knocked out of his hand. He doesn’t seem to mind and actually smiles and SWOOSH he and the other Death Eater disappear.

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 turns again and Harry looks down and notice a beachline below him. All of a sudden Harry screams out in pain as his scar begins to throb again. SWOOSH a Death Eater appears and BAM hits the sidecar making it separate from the bike.

HAGRID
NO!

Hagrid quickly grabs Harry’s arm before he falls. Harry looks down and notices the sidecar crash into the ocean. Hagrid pulls him up upon the bike behind him. SWOOSH Voldemort appears flying quickly towards them.

HARRY
It’s him Hagrid!!!

Another Death Eater appears next to them. BAM Hagrid elbows him off the broom. Another one appears in front of him and Hagrid let’s out a scream of rage and JUMPS off of the bike onto the Death Eater and they both fall. Voldemort raises his wand and it seems that the very clouds begin to turn into fire. The fire whirls around his head firecly and begin to form into a GIANT FIRE SERPANT. Voldemort points his wand and the fire serpant quickly flies towards Harry. The scene cuts to a wideshot of Voldemort floating mid air and the giant serpant quickly flying towards Harry on the motorbike which is quickly descending to the ground. Harry covers his head in defeat and BOOM the spell is knocked back by the protective charm.

VOLDEMORT
NO!!!!

Harry looks around and sighs that he’s still alive. He quickly turns and grabs the handle of the bike. He pulls up and tries to slow it down and BAM he crashes into the ground.

EXT. BEACH-NIGHT

Harry is thrown to the side as the bike continues to flip and turn further ahead of him. Harry quickly gets up and looks around.

HARRY
HAGRID!!!

He looks back where they came and starts to walk in that direction. Ahead he see’s Voldemort standing in front of him muttering trying to take down the protection that is up. Harry stops cold and notices a few feet behind Voldemort is Hagrid laying on the ground.

HARRY
No…..

Voldemort stops and stares at Harry. They both stare at each other for a moment in silence. Voldemort then turns his neck. All of a sudden Harry does the same movement and can hear Voldemort in his head.

VOLDEMORT
I’m going to kill you Harry. These protections won’t hold for long and when they break I will find you.

Voldemort gives Harry a smile and POOF he is gone. Harry stares at Hagrid’s body in disbelief. He starts to approach the body. A hand goes across Harry’s shoulder and quickly turns him around. It is Lupin looking deep into Harry’s eyes.

LUPIN
What shape does Harry Potter’s patronus take?

HARRY
Wha….?

LUPIN
ANSWER ME!!!!

HARRY
A stag…but why….?

LUPIN
I had to make sure it was you Harry. I’m sorry.

HARRY
Hagrid….Hagrid….

Lupin looks over and notices Hagrid laying in the sand. Tonks is seen running towards them in the distance.

LUPIN
I’ll go check on him. Don’t walk out of the protection Harry it could be a trap.

Lupin runs out of the protection and approaches Hagrid’s body. Tonks stops and puts her arm around Harry.

LUPIN
He’s alive. He’s breathing.

We see a wideshot of Lupin kneeling over Hagrid and Harry and Tonks standing on the beach. The scene then fades to a shot of waves. The camera then pans up to show SHELL COTTAGE in the distance. The camera cuts to a shot of a bruised and battered Harry walking toward the house with Tonks. We see the door open and Ginny runs out. She quickly throws her arms around Harry and they hug.

NT. SHELL COTTAGE-LIVING ROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hermione tending to some of Ron’s scars. The camera slowy pans over to show George with a bandade over his head and blood soaked on the side of it. Fred is sitting on the floor in front of his brother. Dobby is looking into the fireplace and Kinglsey is pacing. The door opens and Harry and Ginny walks in. Everyone looks up. Hagrid, Tonks, and Lupin follow. Hagrid takes a seat in one of the chairs and Tonks rushes into another room. Harry looks over and notices George.

HARRY
What happened to him?

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

KINGSLEY
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…

MR. WEASLEY
He caught up with you?

Harry looks as Mr. Weasley walks into the room with.

RON
Blimey Harry how did you escape?

HERMIONE
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…

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!

Tonks walks into the room with some towels and hands one to Harry.

HERMIONE
Where’s Mad Eye?

Harry drops his head at the sound of his name. Everyone immediately knew what happened.

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

MR. 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?

TONKS
You’ll find a bed made right upstairs.

He turns and leaves everyone.
  


Portkey to the Burrow:    


  INT. SHELL COTTAGE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

We see a shot of Harry sleeping. He is tossing and turning. Sweat pour down his face as we hear screams over the screen.

VOLDEMORT(O.S.)
I’m going to kill you Harry….

Harry eyes pop open.

EXT. SHELL COTTAGE-BEDROOM-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione sitting in a bedroom.

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!

HARRY
I know Hermione.

Harry notices a picture sitting next to Hermione. He picks it up and stares at it. The camera zooms in on the picture and it’s a picture of Hermione and her parents.

HARRY
Nice picture. How do your parents feel about all this?

He hands the picture to Hermione and she looks down at it.

HERMIONE
They don’t know. They don’t even know they have a daughter anymore.

Harry looks at her curiously.

HERMIONE
I modified my parents’ memories so that they think they’re completely different people. I didn’t want to risk…if anything happens to me on our mission, they’ll be fine.

Tears slowly begin to fall down Hermione’s eyes. Harry puts his arm around her to comfort her. The camera pans over to show Ron about to walk into the room. He pauses and stares and all he see’s is Harry with his arm around Hermione. He seems a bit disturbed by it and turns and walks away.

HARRY
Hermione I’m sorry….

HERMIONE
No. It’s fine. Really. Don’t go blaming yourself for it. Ron and I promised we would help and I’m sticking by it.

They smile at each other and the scene slowly fades to a shot of a CAN. The camera pans back to show Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny standing around it.

INT. SHELL COTTAGE-LIVING ROOM-MIDDAY

LUPIN
Alright this Portkey will take you straight into the protective enchantments at The Burrow.

HARRY
Thanks again for your help.

TONKS
If you ever need a place to stay for a while…well…you’re more than welcomed here.

LUPIN
Okay on the count of three.

They all place their hand on the can.

LUPIN
One…two…THREE.

SWOOSH they are gone.

EXT. THE BURROW-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to a shot of THE BURROW. SWOOSH the four appear in front of the house. We see MRS. WEASLEY standing waiting for their arrival. She quickly runs up and puts her arms around them all.

INT. BURROW-KITCHEN-MIDDAY
The scene cuts to a shot of the Daily Prophet. We pan back to show Hermione reading it.

HERMIONE
There’s still no word on Moody’s death.

RON
I won’t be surprised if the Death Eaters have taken ‘The Prophet’ over already.

HERMIONE
They’re still talking about Dumbledore though. Rita Skeeter, she’s publishing a book called ‘The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore’ Says she’s got proof that Dumbledore was once a dark wizard in his youth.

HARRY
Rubbish.

HERMIONE
Harry did you know Dumbledore lived in Godric’s Hallow?

HARRY
Really? That’s where my parents were killed. He never told me…well…come to think of it…there’s a lot about him I don’t know.

RON
And You-Know-Who’s soul thingys….

HARRY
Horcruxes.

RON
Yeah Horcruxes. Any idea what they are?

HARRY
No. He said they could be anything.

RON
Great. Just our luck it’s in a banana or something…

HERMIONE
Don’t be thick. This is You-Know-Who we’re talking about. I’m sure he wouldn’t place his soul in a banana. I think it would be in something important.

RON
If R.A.B. destroyed the locket then that is one less Horcrux we have to find.

HERMIONE
Yes, but we’re still going to have to try and trace the real locket, aren’t we? We have to find out if it’s really destroyed.

Harry nobs in agreement. The scene cuts to a shot of the sun rising over the horizon. The camera pans over to show the Burrow and we cut to a shot of Harry sleeping.
  


Harry's Seventeenth Birthday:    


  INT. BURROW-RON’S BEDROOM-DAWN

RON (O.S.)
HARRY!

Harry quickly jumps up and grabs for his wand.

RON
Happy 17th Birthday mate!

HARRY
Yeah…thanks…..

RON
Well go ahead…use some magic...you can do it anytime you like now!

Harry grabs his wand and looks around the room. He see’s a book sitting next to Ron’s bed and points his wand at it.

HARRY
Accio book!

The book flies into Harry’s hand and he looks down at the title.

HARRY
Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches?

RON
That book’s pure gold…you should keep it. It explains everything you need to know about girls.

Harry laughs and the scene fades to a shot of a food filled table.

INT. BURROW-KITCHEN-MIDDAY

The camera pans up to show Harry and Ron walking down the stairs. Ron eyes widen with excitement as he see all the food.

HARRY
What’s all this?

Mrs. Weasley runs up and gives him a big hug.

MRS. WEASLEY
Happy Birthday dear!

HARRY
Thanks Mrs. Weasley. This is…great...you didn’t have to…

MRS. WEASLEY
Of course I did!

Tonks and Lupin walk into the kitchen. Tonks quickly hugs Harry.

TONKS
Happy Birthday Harry!

HARRY
Thanks.

LUPIN
Your parents and Sirius would be proud. I know I am. You’ve grown into a fine man Harry.

HARRY
Thanks Professor.

LUPIN
Call me Remus.

Harry smiles and we see Hermione run down the stairs and hugs Harry. Behind her Ginny walks down and looks on. She smiles at him.

EXT. THE BURROW-FRONT YARD-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Ginny walking in the front yard of the Burrow.

GINNY
I had to get you out of there. Bit crowded isn’t it?

HARRY
Yeah. We haven’t had the chance to really talk huh?

GINNY
Well you’ve been busy, saving the world and all…

HARRY
Ginny…I…I just…I wish things were different you know? I wish I wasn’t ‘The Chosen One’ and maybe, just maybe…we could…

GINNY
But you are ‘The Chosen One’ Harry and I know you have a mission to do. I won’t jeopardize that with something like my feelings…

Harry grabs Ginny and starts to kiss her. They begin to kiss like they’ll never see each other again. They stop kissing and hold each other looking while looking into each others eyes.

HARRY
When this is over….when all this is done…

RON (O.S.)
Harry!

They both jump apart as Ron walks towards them from the house.

RON
Time to eat.

GINNY
Well happy seventeenth Harry…

She smiles at him and walks off. Harry begins to follow but Ron stops him.

RON
I saw you two…

HARRY
What?

RON
I saw you and Ginny…snogging…

HARRY
Ron I’m….

RON
We’re leaving soon Harry.

HARRY
I know I just….

RON
And you get her hopes up like that? You know she’s had a crush on you since she first met you…

HARRY
I know Ron and I’m sorry…it won’t happen again…

RON
Right…well... come on then.

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 standing.

EVERYONE
Happy Birthday Harry!!!

There’s a POP and confetti flies everywhere. Harry smiles as Mrs. Weasley once again runs up and hugs him.

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

She hands Harry a watch.

MRS. WEASLEY
It’s tradition to give wizards a watch on their Birthday. I know it’s not much but….

HARRY
Thanks Mrs. Weasley. Really.

She smiles and motions for him to sit down.

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

HARRY
Yeah. You told me I was a wizard and gave Dudley a pig’s tail.

Hagrid smiles at Harry and everyone takes their seat.

HARRY
Where’s Mr. Weasley?

MRS. WEASLEY
He had to work today dear. The new Minister Rufus Scrimgeour has been working them to the bone. He sends his love. He should be home soon. Now dig in everyone.

Ron is the first to grab something. Hermione looks at him and sighs. 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 family.
  


The Will of Albus Dumbledore:    


  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…

LUPIN
You can’t do this alone Harry…

TONKS
Remus….


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….

DOBBY (O.S.)
Sorry I’m late!

Everyone jumps. Harry looks down and see’s Dobby staring up at him.

HARRY
Dobby….

DOBBY
Dobby is so sorry sir. Dobby would not miss Harry Potter’s birthday for anything in the world. Dobby had to find Harry Potter the perfect gift.

Harry looks relieved that Dobby interrupted the conversation.

HARRY
What is it?

Dobby reaches into his clothes and pulls out a sock.

DOBBY
This is the sock Harry Potter used to free Dobby. Dobby thought you would want it back sir.

Dobby smiles at Harry and Harry takes the sock and chuckles.

HARRY
Thanks Dobby.

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

MR. WEASLEY
Hello all.

MRS. WEASLEY
Arthur you’re home! What is that?

MR. WEASLEY
Ministry business. 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
Anything wrong Mr. Weasley?

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

Mr. Weasley pulls out a piece of parchment and begins to read aloud.

MR. WEASLEY
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. Seems you have a few things here Harry. 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
Snitches carry enchantments by which it can identify the first human to lay hands upon it, in case of a disputed capture.

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
He also left you Sirius Black’s will.

HARRY
What?

MR. WEASLEY
Yes. Dumbledore fought hard to get that from the Ministry. Sirius left you his home in Grimmauld Place and everything he owned.

Harry takes the will and looks at it.

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
I was shocked aswell. Unfortunately it wasn’t available; I’m not sure where it is exactly.

HARRY
The Minister…Scrimgeour...he doesn’t know?

MR. WEASLEY
He didn’t say. He seemed distracted…worried…I think You-Know-Who’s reigns is getting to him.

MRS. WEASLEY
ARTHUR!!!

They all run into the kitchen. Everyone inside is not outside the house. They all rush outside.

EXT. BURROW-FRONT YARD-MIDDAY

The camera cuts to Tonks and Lupin, wands both drawn. The camera pans over to show DEATH EATERS just outside of the protection. They keep throwing spells trying to break it down.

MRS. WEASLEY
They just showed up.

LUPIN
They must know Harry is here.

Hermione gasps and runs back into the house.

MR. WEASLEY
Well we’re safe as long as the protection holds.

MRS. WEASLEY
I can’t take this…not again….

SWOOSH all of a sudden there is a bright light that appears in front of them. It quickly forms into a silver lynx patronus.

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

Fear crosses all of their eyes. We see beyond the peremiters Bellatrix appear. She smiles as she slowly walks towards the barrier.

LUPIN
Harry get out of here. NOW!!!

Ron grabs his arm and they run into the house. Lupin, Tonks, Fred, George, Ginny, Dobby, and Mr. Weasley all run into the yard with their wands drawn. Bellatrix gives a laugh as she simply touches the protection with her wand and SWOOSH it seems to the protection turns into fire. Everyone looks up as it seems the sky has vanished and they’re surrounded by a dome of fire. SWOOSH the Death Eaters turn into black smoke and quickly fly through the fire. It seems the fire and their smoke mesh together and it appears 4 giant fire balls are flying towards them. Tonks and Lupin quickly burst into white smoke and fly head first into two of the Death Eaters. BAM they collide. We see everyone else start to throw spells. Bellatrix lands in front of them.

BELLATRIX
Thought I’d stop by for another visit.

She starts to laugh and we see rage engulf Mrs. Weasley.

INT. THE BURROW-LIVING ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Ron running through the house.

RON
HERMIONE! HERMIONE!

We see Hermione quickly run down stairs.

RON
Where did you….

HERMIONE
I had to grab something. Come. Quickly.

BOOM it seems like a shock wave moves through the house. The trio is knocked down as glass shatters all around them. Ron jumps up and see’s his Mum laying on the ground with Bellatrix over her. Everyone else is captured by a Death Eater.

RON
No….

HERMIONE
Come on Ron!

RON
MUM!!!

Hermione reaches out and grabs Ron’s arm. She takes Harry’s hand and SWOOSH they disappear. We see them twisting and turning in the apparition stream and we hear Ron sceams. We see them land and all the world around them quickly takes form. They land in the middle of a crowded street and quickly jump back as a bus barely hits them.
  


A Place to Hide:    


  EXT. TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD-MOMENTS LATER

Hermione looks around and begins to walk. Harry and Ron glance at her and begin to follow. Ron pushes his way through people trying to get to Hermione. Hermione keeps walking. She quickly turns a corner and other 2 follow.

RON
Hermione!

She pauses while still looking around. Ron and Harry finally catch up with her.

RON
Where are we?

HERMIONE
Tottenham Court Road. Walk, just walk. We need somewhere to hide.

She begins to walk again and they both walk beside her.

HARRY
Hide? My Invisibility Cloak! I don’t have it with me….

HERMIONE
I’ve got the cloak, and clothes for all of us.

They turn down an ally and Hermione opens the small handbag she has with her and starts feeling around in it.

HARRY
You fit everything in there?

HERMIONE
Everything we will need yes. Undetectable Extension Charm. It was tricky but I think I’ve done okay.

HARRY
When did you do all this?

HERMIONE
I’ve had the essentials packed for days, you know, in case we needed a quick getaway. This is what I ran upstairs to get.

She pulls out the Invisibility Cloak and hands it to Harry. Harry throws the cloak over him and Ron and Hermione walk out of the alleyway 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 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
Yeah….

HERMIONE
So let’s just….

SWOOSH out of nowhere two figures apparate in front of them in black smoke.

HERMIONE
Run!

She pulls Ron and Harry (Who’s still invisible) into another allyway 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 ropes flying at him. SWOOSH Hermione waves her wand and the ropes are thrown back at the Death Eater who simply burns them before they wrap around him.

HARRY (O.S.)
STUPDEFY!

The spell shoots out but barely misses the Death Eater.

DEATH EATER 1
EXPULSO!

BOOM the wall next to Harry explodes knocking the Cloak off of him as he falls.

HERMIONE
Petrificus Totalus!

BOOM the Death Eater is hit in the chest and falls down frozen.

RON
STUPEFY!!

BOOM the other Death Eater is knocked hard against the wall and falls out unconscious. Harry then goes to fetch is Cloak as Ron checks on Hermione

RON
You alright?

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

Hermione points her wand at the Death Eater.

HERMIONE
Obliviate!

HARRY
Brilliant Hermione.

She turns and does the same for to the other Death Eater.

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

RON
Ha can’t have, he’s seventeen now.

HARRY
We need somewhere to hide…Grimmauld Place..that’s all we have.

HERMIONE
But Harry Snape…

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

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 all stop moving.

HERMIONE
Harry…Harry I can’t move…

HARRY
Me neither!

We see them try to move but they can’t. Slowly it seems dust starts to collect in front of them. If quickly starts to spin and FLASH the dust forms into an image of Dumbledore. The figure stands eerily still and points at them.

MOODY (VOICE)
Severus Snape?

HARRY
We’re not Snape!

The figure starts to float slowly towards them. Fear grips the trio as they try to move once again. We see the Dumbledore figure open it’s mouth.

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

SWOOSH the cloud of dust explodes leaving them coughing. They’re now able to move. Hermione quickly jumps into Ron’s arms shaking.

HARRY
You guys okay?

RON
Yeah.

Harry turns and begins to walk down the hall.

HERMIONE
Harry wait.

She pulls out her wand.

HERMIONE
Let’s see if there’s another human presence here first. Homenum revelio!

Nothing happens.

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

RON
And old dusty.

He gesturing to where Dumbledore’s figure just was.

HARRY
Good. Well let’s get upstairs…

He starts to walk and grabs his scar in pain.

RON
What is it?

HARRY
Nothing…I….I just felt angry. He’s really angry.

Harry closes his eyes and his neck twitches as we hear Voldemort’s voice over the screen.

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

We hear another voice scream as Harry grabs his head in pain and then BOOM there is a burst of bright light. They all look up as a Weasel patronus appears in front of them and Mr. Weasley’s voice comes from it.

MR. WEASLEY (O.S.)
Family safe, do not reply, we are being watched.

SWOOSH the Patronus is gone.

RON
Everyone’s alright!

HERMIONE
That’s good news….Harry? Are you alright?

HARRY
Fine..it was just Voldemort. I think the connection between us is opening again…especially when he loses control. It’s fine now...

HERMIONE
Harry you have to block that!

HARRY
I know Hermione…let’s…just go and freshen up alright?

HERMIONE
Right…well let’s get upstairs. Don’t worry about your undergarments Ron, I washed them yesterday.

They both walk upstairs and Harry’s watches them. He then turns and looks down the hallway towards the door. He lets out a sigh and proceeds to walk upstairs.
  


Number 3 Grimmauld Place:    


  INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene fades to the trio sitting in a bedroom. Hermione is reading the book Dumbledore gave her, Harry is staring at the snitch, and Ron keeps clicking the lights on and off.

HERMIONE
Would you stop that! I’m trying to read!

RON
Sorry…

Ron clicks the deluminator and the lights pop on again.

HARRY
I can’t believe they’re keeping the sword of Gryffindor. It’s mine. We have to get it back from them!

HERMIONE
How Harry? We don’t know where it is.

HARRY
Dumbledore’s office maybe.

HERMIONE
You think it’s still there? Besides I doubt we’ll be able to just waltz into Hogwarts and get the sword from Dumbledore’s office!

Harry looks down at the snitch in his hand.

HARRY
Well I guess it’s time to see if Dumbledore really left me a message with this thing.

RON
What do you mean?

HARRY
Don’t you remember Ron. My first match I caught the Snitch…

RON
In your mouth!

HARRY
Well..here goes…

Harry pops the Snitch into his mouth and takes it out. Slowly words start to form on the Snitch and Harry reads it outloud.

HARRY
‘I open at the close’

RON
What’s that supposed to mean?

HARRY
No idea.

HERMIONE
This book if full of fairy tales. Why would Dumbledore leave this for me?

RON
Mum used to read those stories to us all the time growing up. Good stuff.

HERMIONE
Although…

Hermione gets up and takes the book over to Harry.

HERMIONE
Do you know what the symbol means Harry?

The camera zooms in on the SYMBOL.

HERMIONE
Dumbledore used it as the A in his name and it’s here on the story ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’

RON
I loved that story!

HERMIONE
So do you know what the symbol means?

RON
No idea.

Harry sighs in frustration, gets up, and walks quickly out of the room. Hermione looks at Ron who shrugs.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KICHEN-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Harry storming down the stairs and into the kitchen. Hermione and Ron quickly rush after him.

HERMIONE
Harry…HARRY!…what’s wrong?

HARRY
Don’t you see Hermione! We’re unprepared! We don’t know anything! Dumbledore left me with nothing!

HERMIONE
Harry…

HARRY
I don’t know what these Horcruxes are or even where to start looking for them. He leaves us these things in his will and for what? Snape took him away before…before…

HERMIONE
We’ll figure things out Harry…it’ll just take some time…

HARRY
Time? TIME! I thought Dumbledore and I had more time and look where we are now.

Harry walks to the table and sits down.

KREACHER (O.S.)
Who’s there?

They all jump and turn as KREACHER the houself walks into the kitchen.

KREACHER
Why is the mudblood and blood traitor in my families’ house? GET OUT!

HARRY
Kreacher?

KREACHER
Ma….master…..

Kreacher bows and Harry casts a look at Hermione and Ron.

HARRY
Master?

HERMIONE
Don’t you see Harry? Sirius left you this place in his will, which means….

RON
Kreacher belongs to you. Great…tell him to make us some food.

HERMIONE
Ron!

RON
What! That’s what they’re there for!

HERMIONE
House elves have every right as we do.

HARRY
Quiet you two! Kreacher why are you still here?

KREACHER
Kreacher is bound to this home and will keep watch over it. Master Sirius deserved what he got meddling with mudbloods and…

HARRY
Enough! I don’t want to hear you saying mudblood or blood traitor again. You understand?

KREACHER
Yes master.

HARRY
Where did you just come from?

KREACHER
I was cleaning my mistresses portrait. If she knew the scum that were in her house….

HARRY
I thought I told you not to say…

KREACHER
You told me not to call them mudblood and blood traitor. You said nothing about scum.

Kreacher smiles and quickly leaves the room before Harry orders him not to say it.

RON
He’s going to be fun to have around. So now what?

HARRY
Let’s have a look around this place. See what we can find

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a shot of a dark dusty room. The door opens and Hermione walks into the room. She starts to look around the room curiously. She glances and notices a portrait on the wall. She walks to the portrait and wipes the dust off the nameplate.

HERMIONE
Phineas Nigellus Black.

Her eyes widen as she glances up at the portrait.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-HALLWAY

The camera cuts to Harry walking up the stairs into a Hallway. He turns to walk up the next flight of stairs but pauses. He notices the nameplate on a door reads ‘SIRIUS’ He pauses in front of the door for a moment and then slowly opens the door.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-SIRIUS ROOM

Harry walks into Sirius’s room and looks around. He notices the large bed, tall windows, and a dusty chandelier. He walks toward the other end of the room where there a many pictures plastered on the wall underneath a large Gryffindor banner. The camera zooms in on the pictures showing plenty of motorcycles, girls in bikini’s, and plenty of pictures of young Sirius. He camera pauses on a picture of young Sirius, James, Lupin, and Wormtail all smiling and waving. The camera pans back to show Harry looking at the picture.

HARRY
Dad….

He tries to take the picture down but it doesn’t budge. Harry takes a step back and we hear a paper shuffle. He looks down notices a pile of papers next to Sirius bed. He picks them up and starts looking through them. Harry notices an envelope. He picks it up and written on the envelope is ‘To Sirius, From Lily.’ Harry quickly opens the envelope and pulls out a letter and a picture falls out. Harry picks it up. It’s a picture of him as a baby zooming around on the broom and his fathers legs chasing him. Harry smiles and there is a knock on the door. Harry turns around to see Hermione standing there.

HERMIONE
Harry there’s something you have to see.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione walking into the room Hermione just left. She walks over to the portrait and points at it.

HERMIONE
It belongs to Phineas Nigellus Black.

HARRY
Phineas? Wasn’t he…?

HERMIONE
An old Headmaster at Hogwarts yes. Which means he can move from his portrait at Hogwarts to this one. I was thinking….

HARRY
Maybe he can contact Dumbledore for us! Brilliant!

HERMIONE
Phineas. Mr. Black are you there! Mr. Black we need to talk to you please!

Nothing happens and Hermione turns around with a look of disappointment.

HARRY
Maybe he’s busy with the new headmaster at Hogwarts whoever that is.

HERMIONE
Perhaps. We should keep a close watch on this just in case he appears.

Hermione begins to take the portrait down.

HARRY
What are you doing?

HERMIONE
Who know’s how long we’ll be here. Might as well put it in my bag with everything else.

Harry helps her take the portrait down. Ron walks into the room.

RON
I got something I think you two really need to see.
  


Kreacher's Tale:    


  INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-HALLWAY-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Ron leading Harry and Hermione down a hall. He stops in front of the door.

RON
Take a look.

Harry walks over and looks at the nameplate on the wall.The camera zooms in on the faceplate and it reads ‘Do Not Enter Without the Express Permission of Regulus Arcturus Black’

HARRY
Regulus Arcturus Black. That’s Sirius’s brother. Slughorn mentioned him last year.

RON
Yeah but look at the initials Harry.

HARRY
R. A….wait…you don’t think….

RON
It has to be.

Harry goes to open the door but it doesn’t budge. He jams his shoulder into the door to try and force it open. Harry then pulls out his wand and points it at the doorknob. BOOM the doorknob falls off and the door opens. They slowly walk into the room.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULAS ROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to them walking into Regulus’s all green room. Ron goes over to the wall and starts to examine the newspaper clippings.

RON
They’re all about You-Know-Who. Do you think Regulus was a Death Eater.

HARRY
Wouldn’t surprise me.

Hermione notices a chest underneath his bed. She pulls it out and opens it. She pulls out the books in it and gasps.

HARRY
Hermione?

HERMIONE
I can’t believe it….

Ron and Harry walk up behind her. She slowly opens the book.

HARRY
Hermione?

She looks back at them with an intrigued look on her face.

HERMIONE
These books are about Horcruxes.

Ron and Harry glance at each other.

KREACHER (O.S.)
What are you doing in Master Regulus room!

They all turn to see Kreacher, visibly angry, standing in the doorway. He notices the book Hermione is holding and quickly rushes and snatches it from her.

HARRY
Kreacher….

KREACHER
No! Get out! GET OUT! I’m sorry master!!

Kreacher begins to cry as he holds the book closer to him.

RON
Just order him to give you the book, the git.

HERMIONE
Ron!

HARRY
Kreacher….

Harry reaches out to touch him but Kreacher quickly pulls back and glares at Harry. Harry pulls out the fake locket and lets it hang in front of Kreacher.

HARRY
Does this look familiar to you Kreacher?

Kreacher stares at the locket in silence. He drops the book and tears begin to fall faster down his face.

HARRY
I went looking for a locket a few months ago. I found this…there is a letter inside….

KREACHER
Yes. Yes.

HARRY
Did this belong to your Master Regulus?

Kreacher nods all the while staring at the locket.

KREACHER
Kreacher failed Master. Kreacher tried….

HARRY
Tell me what happened Kreacher. Please.

Kreacher for the first time takes his eyes off the locket and looks up at Harry. He slowly walks to the other side of the room and sits against the wall. Kreacher seems to stare off into the distance…a memory filling is mind that he hadn’t thought about in years.

KREACHER
When he was sixteen years old, Master Regulus joined the Dark Lord.

INT. GRIMMAULD YEARS-KITCHEN-YEARS EARLIER (FLASHBACK)

The scene slowly fades to Kreacher in the past cleaning up the kitchen. REGULUS slowly walks into the kitchen.

KREACHER (V.O)
A year after he had joined, Master Regulus came down to the kitchen to see Kreacher and Master Regulus said…he said…

REGULUS
The Dark Lord requires an elf Kreacher.

Kreacher bows.

EXT. THE CAVE-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a wideshot of THE CAVE where Voldemort hid the locket Horcrux. We see Voldemort standing outside of the entrance with Kreacher.

KREACHER (V.O.)
So Kreacher went to the Dark Lord. The Dark Lord took Kreacher to a cave beside the sea. And beyond the cave there was a cavern, and in the cavern was a great black lake….

We see Voldemort pulling the boat up from the depths of the lake. Kreacher looks up at him curiously and Voldemort simply smiles.

KREACHER (V.O.)
There was boat…and it took us to this basin full of potion on the island. The Dark Lord…The Dark Lord made Kreacher drink it…

We see Kreacher taking a drink of the potion and he begins to yell out in pain. He continues to drink as Voldemort’s eyes widen with satisfaction.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher drank, and as he drank, he saw terrible things…Kreacher’s insides burned…Kreacher cried for Master Regulus to save him, but the Dark Lord only laughed. He made Kreacher drink all the potion…He dropped a locket into the empty basin…he filled it with more potion..and then…and then….

HARRY (V.O.)
What Kreacher?

KREACHER (V.O.)
He sailed away, leaving Kreacher on the island…

We see Voldemort sailing away on the boat and Kreacher gasping for air on all fours.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher needed water, he crawled to the island’s edge and he drank from the black lake…and hands…dead hands…came out of the water and dragged Kracher under the surface….

We see Kreacher being pulled under by the INFERI and then we cut back to present day.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS’S ROOM-MOMENTS LATER

We see Kreacher, tears in his eyes and rocking back and forth as he tells the story. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are now sitting in front of him, a look of amazement in their eyes.

HARRY
How did you get away?

Kreacher looks up at Harry.

KREACHER
Master Regulus told Kreacher to come back.

HARRY
I know, but how did you escape the Inferi?

KREACHER
Master Regulus told Kreacher to come back.

HARRY
But you couldn’t Apparate in and out of that cave otherwise Dumbledore…

RON
Elf magic isn’t like wizard magic Harry.

KREACHER
The house elf’s highest law is his Master’s bidding. Kreacher was told to come home, so Kreacher came home.

HARRY
So what did Regulus say when you told him what happened?

KREACHER
Master was very worried, very worried…Master told Kreacher to stay hidden and not to leave the house. And then…it was a little while later…Master Regulus came to find Kreacher.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS ROOM-PAST

The scene cuts to Regulus standing in his room. He puts some books in a chest and pushes it under his bed. He pulls out the fake locket and looks at it for a moment. He puts it in his pocket and looks down at Kreacher.

REGULUS
Kreacher…I need you to take to the cave. Take me to the cave the Dark Lord took you.

KREACHER
Yes Master.

Regulus grabs Kreachers arm and BOOM they disappeared.

INT. CAVE ENTRANCE-MOMENTS LATER

The scene cuts to Kreacher putting blood on the wall and it peeling away slowly. Regulus slowly follows Kreacher in and it cuts to them in the boat as it lands in the island in the middle of the lake. Regulus walks up to the basin and looks down into it. He takes the fake locket out of his pocket and stares at it for a moment.

REGULUS
I want you to take this Kreacher and once the basin is empty…I want you to switch lockets.

KREACHER
But Master the potion does terrible…

REGULUS
That’s an order Kreacher!

He hands the locket to Kreacher.

REGULUS
I want you to leave without me. Go home and never tell my mother about this and I want you to destroy the locket Kreacher.

KREACHER
Yes…yes Master….

Regulus begins to drink the potion and yell out in pain.

KREACHER (V.O.)
And master drank it…drank all the potion..and when he was done Kreacher swapped lockets…

We see Kreacher switch out lockets as Regulus lays on the ground in pain. He looks up at Kreacher who bows and walks towards the boat. The boat begins to move once Kreacher is in it and we see Regulus reach down for water. All of a sudden the Inferi begin to pull him under.

KREACHER (V.O.)
Kreacher watched…as Master Regulus…was dragged beneath the water…and….

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-REGULUS’S ROOM-PRESENT DAY

The scene cuts back to Kreacher staring blankly into the distance. Hermione has a hand over her mouth as tears slowly form in her eyes.

KREACHER
Nothing Kreacher did made any mark on the locket. Kreacher tried everything but it would not open. So many powerful spells upon the casing. Kreacher failed to obey orders….

He starts to cry loudly.

HARRY
Kreacher…where is the locket?

Kreacher looks up at Harry and stares blankly at him. Does he tell him? It is a direct order afterall.

KREACHER
Kreacher hid it. Kreacher hid it so no one could find it.

HARRY
Could you bring it to me Kreacher? I can destroy it for Master Regulus.

KREACHER
Yes…master…

Kreacher stands up.

HARRY
Before you go though.

Harry hands the fake locket to Kreacher.

HARRY
I’d like you to have this. This belonged to Regulus and I’m sure he’d want you to have it as a token of gratitide for what you…

Tears begin to roll down Kreachers eyes

KREACHER
Th…thank you..Master…

Kreacher looks down at the locket and then POOF he is gone.

RON
Why’d you give him the fake locket already? How do you know he’ll actually bring you the real locket….

HARRY
I trust Kreacher. I think…I think he hates Voldemort for what he did to his master and will do anything to stop him.

HERMIONE
Well I’ll get to reading the books. See what Regulus found out.

Harry nods as Hermione walks over to the trunk. The camera slowly pans up once again to a shot of the faceplate and slowly fades to a wideshot of a rainy London.
  


The Horcruxes:    


  EXT. LONDON-ALLEYWAY-MIDDAY
We pan down into the alleyway to see Harry, covered in a raincoat walking quickly. He walks near the edge of the alleyway and pauses. Standing in front of Grimmauld Place are 10 Death Eaters. They are all just standing there staring ahead. He turns and see’s if anyone is looking and SWOOSH he apparates onto the top step of Grimmauld Place. He stands there for a second looking out at the Death Eaters standing in front of the house. There are about 10 of them standing there now. He sighs and opens the door. The door closes behind him.

HARRY (O.S.)
You guys won’t believe it…

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. The camera shows a picture of Snape standing in front of a podium and it reads ‘SEVERUS SNAPE CONFIRMED AS HOWGWARTS NEW HEADMASTER’

HERMIONE
No!

HARRY
And even better. There are about 10 Death Eaters standing outside of here.

HERMIONE
They can’t see this place. You have to know it’s here to see it….we’re safe…

HARRY
But why would they come here?

HERMIONE
Sirius’s will. He left you this home and if the Ministry kept his will like they did Dumbledore’s they’ll know you’re here.

Harry takes a seat in a chair. Hermione walks over and picks the book up.

HERMIONE
Well I see now why this topic was banned in school. Horcruxes…they’re horrible, horrible things. I’ve never read a book so dark.

HARRY
Any word on how to destroy them?

HERMIONE
Yes, well, from what I’ve read what Harry did to Riddle’s diary was one of the few really foolproof ways of destroying a Horcrux.

RON
Stabbing it with a basilisk fang? Lucky we’ve got such a large supply of those…

HERMIONE
It has to be something so destructive that the Horcrux can’t repair itself. Basilisk venom can only be destroyed by one thing….

HARRY
Phoenix tears.

RON
Did you read anything on if you make a Horcrux, somehow putting the pieces of your soul back together?

HERMIONE
Well the pieces of the souls are always drawn to each other anyway. The soul isn’t meant to be split. If Voldemort himself wants to put his soul back together he would have to feel remorse. You’ve got to really feel what you’ve done. The pain is said to be unbearable and can destroy you….

RON
I can see him doing that.

HARRY
So we know how to atleast destroy it. I don’t see how we’re going to get baskilisk venom but we still don’t know what the other Horcruxes are.

HERMIONE
I wouldn’t be so sure Harry.

Hermione walks over and gets another large black book. She sits it on the table and opens it.

HERMIONE
I was reading through this book and it seems Regulus left a few notes.

They all look into the book and the camera focuses on it’s pages.

HERMIONE
See..there…strange things. But here there is a list. I’m not sure how he found out…I’m sure it took a long time…

HARRY
It says ring, diary, snake…

RON
And he has in parenthesis Hogwart’s Founders heirlooms with a question mark. What’s that supposed to mean?

HARRY
I think R.A.B. figured out what Voldemort’s Horcruxes were. Look it makes sense. Ring. Dumbledore destroyed it. It belonged to Riddle’s mother. He told me so last year. The locket he went to find himself.

HERMIONE
Do you think the locket could be from Slytheran? Which would make it one of the Hogwart’s Founders heirloom.

HARRY
It would make sense. Riddle is his descendent.

RON
And snake?

HARRY
Dunno….Nagini his snake maybe? Hermione did the book so it was possible for Horcrux’s to be put into something living?

HERMIONE
It’s possible but extremely risky.

HARRY
I destroyed the diary in my 2nd year which means we have….

HERMIONE
5 to destroy.

RON
Yeah and they can be anywhere!

HARRY
Well atleast we kind of know what to look for now. It’s a start.

KREACHER (O.S.)
Master.

They turn around to see Kreacher standing there with the fake locket around his neck. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out the real locket.

KREACHER
This is for you.

Harry stares at the locket. There seems to be a hissing sound coming from within it. Harry slowly walks towards Kreacher, as though he’s mesmerized by it. He kneels down and looks at it. He reaches out and it seems the locket leaps into Harry’s hand. He stares down at it.

HERMIONE
Harry?

It looks as the locket has Harry under some sort of trance. He continues to gaze down at it.

HERMIONE
HARRY!

Harry jumps and looks back at her. He then looks down at Kreacher and smiles.

HARRY
Thanks so much for this Kreacher.

Kreacher smiles as he wraps his hand around the fake locket and slowly walks out of the room. Harry stands up and faces Ron and Hermione.

RON
So that’s it? How do we know that elf isn’t jipping us?

HARRY
It’s the real one…there’s something dark about it. Dumbledore told me that dark magic leaves traces….

He holds it out and Hermione takes it. Harry moves his neck slightly as Hermione and Ron stare at the locket. Both seem to be uneasy with it.

HERMIONE
You’re right Harry. There’s something dark about this thing.

RON
So now what?

HARRY
We find out how to destroy it.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

The scene cuts to a shot of Harry sleeping. The locket is around his neck and he is tossing and turning. There is a SWOOSH.

INT. HOGWARTS-DUMBLEDORE’S OFFICE-DREAM

We see Harry standing in front of Dumbledore in his office.

HARRY
So if we destroy all of them….

DUMBLEDORE
One kills Voldemort….

The scene cuts to Dumbledore placing the diary and the locket on his desk.

DUMBLEDORE
Magic…dark magic…it leaves…..

We see Harry touch the ring and it begins to spin.

DUMBLEDORE (O.S.)
Traces…

There is a FLASH and

INT. HOGWARTS-ASTRONOMY TOWER-NIGHT

Harry is standing on the Astronomy Tower. He looks up and see’s Dumbledore standing in front of him.

DUMBLEDORE
Trust me.

There is another flash and Harry is now below. He looks up and see’s Dumbledore standing there. He turns and standing behind him is Snape who puts his finger to his mouth. Harry nods. FLASH.

SEVERUS
Avada Kadavra!

BOOM the spell hits Dumbledore and we see the green light reflect on Harry.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-BEDROOM-NIGHT

Harry opens his eyes. He sits up panting and grasps the locket around his neck. He does the neck twich.
  


The Intruder:    


  EXT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-STREET-MIDDAY-MONTHS LATER

We see a shot of Grimmauld Place covered in snow. We see Death Eaters in front of the house casting spells trying to discover something but failing. The camera pans backwards and a dark figure steps into the frame looking ahead.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-KITCHEN-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Ron using his wand to have dishes float in the air. One by one he starts to make them explode. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM. We see Hermione walk in behind him.

HERMIONE
Ronald! Stop it! What are you doing?

Ron turns around, his concentration broken, and all the dishes CRASH into the ground.

HERMIONE
What’s all this?

RON
I’m going to repair them.

HERMIONE
That’s beside the point…

RON
I’m bored Hermione! After all this time you’d think we’d be further along. I didn’t think we’d still be sitting here!

HERMIONE
We’re doing the best we can Ron. That book takes time to decipher and I’m doing my best.

RON
I just thought Harry would….

He pauses and frowns.

INT. GRIMMAULD PLACE-STAIRWAY-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry standing on the stairwell listening to them.

HERMIONE (O.S.)
He’s doing the best he can Ron. I know it’s frustrating. I too thought this would be a bit more exciting but we don’t even know where to begin looking for the remaining Horcruxes.

RON(O.S.)
I could be with my family.

HERMIONE(O.S.)
I know…but we promised we’d stick with him….

SWOOSH the dust start to form in front of Harry. He backs up in surprise the figure of Dumbledore forms and begins to move down the hall. Someone was inside. Harry pulls out his wand and points it at the door. POOF the dust disappears.


HARRY
Who’s there?

We see the figure standing there silent in the dark.

HARRY
SHOW YOURSELF!

The figure slowly walks into the light and it’s SNAPE who is carrying a large BAG on 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
And what exactly did I do 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 snowy woods. We see Ron standing next to a tree.

EXT. WOODS-MOMENTS LATER

HARRY
WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!?! 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. We got the locket…let’s focus on the mission before revenge.

HARRY
It’s all my fault. I dream about it every night. I could have stopped him from killing Dumbledore. I trusted him…I TRUSTED HIM!!!


HERMIONE
Give me the locket Harry.

Harry looks up at Hermione curiously. 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
  


Camping and the revelation:    


  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.

She smiles at Harry and the scene cuts to a shot of the tent next to a lake. We cut to them sitting at the table. Ron is picking at his food.

HERMIONE
Do you have any idea where You-Know-Who’s Horcruxes could be?

HARRY
Do you think he could have hid one at Borgin and Burkes? You know he went into exile in Albania for a while….

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

HARRY
I have a feeling however, that there’s one in Hogwarts.

HERMIONE
But don’t you think Dumbledore would’ve found it there?

HARRY
Dumbledore said that he never assumed he knew all of Hogwart’s secrets. I’m telling you, if there’s one place Vol…

RON
Harry!

HARRY
Right…You-Know-Who. If there was one place that was really important it was Hogwarts. It was his first real home, the place that meant he was special; it meant everything to him, and even after he left…

RON
This is You Know Who we’re talking bout, not you.

The tugs at the locket around his neck and starts poking at his plate again.

RON
I can’t keep eating this rubbish.

HERMIONE
Rubbish? Harry caught that fish and I did my best with it! I notice I’m always 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! My mother can make good food appear out of thin air.

HERMIONE
It’s impossible to make good food out of nothing! You can summon it if you know where it is, you can transform it, and you can increase the quantity if you’ve already got some….

RON
Well don’t bother increasing this, it’s disgusting.

He pushes his plate away and walks away. We see sadness fill Hermione’s eyes. Harry stares at Ron as the scene fades to a shot of…

EXT. MOUNTAINS/WOODS/MONTAGE-WINTER

Harry, Ron, and Hermione walking through the snow. We see them set up the tent in different locations. We see Hermione and Harry walk ahead as Ron watches them from a distance. We see Hermione standing outside setting up protections. She pauses and looks as she notices 3 figures walking in the distance. Harry walks up behind her and they both stare down at the figures

EXT. WOODS-NIGHT

The scene cuts to Hermione and Harry walking down the hill towards the figures. The three are now sitting around a fire and they’re roasting fish over it. Harry puts his finger up over his lip signaling for her to remain quiet. They stand behind a huge tree and they’re able to see that the people are GRIPHOOK the goblin, TED TONKS, another goblin named FRED.

EXT. WOOD-CAMPFIRE-MOMENTS LATER-NIGHT

TED
I’ve been on the run for about six weeks now. 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.

TED
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.

The two goblins look at each other and begin to laugh.

TED
Oh?

GRIPHOOK
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 Harry and Hermione.

TED
Never heard a word. 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 and Fred burst out into laughter again. Ted looks confused.

TED
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.

INT. WOODS-TENT-MIDDAY

The scene cuts to Harry and Hermione bursting into the tent. Ron looks around, visibly angry.

RON
Where were you two?

HARRY
We saw some people. Thought we’d go down and investigate.

RON
Didn’t bother to let me know did you?

HERMIONE
Not now Ron…we just found out something….something incredible…

The scene cuts to Hermione pulling out the portrait of Phinieas Black. She props it up against the table and kneels in front of it.

HARRY
You think he’ll answer this time?

HERMIONE
Let’s cross our fingers. Phineas Nigellus? Professor Black? Could we talk to you?

PHINIEAS (O.S.)
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…

HERMIONE
Silly girl?

PHINEAS
Yes this young girl…Weasley I think is her name…her and her friends tried to take the sword out of the Headmaster’s office.

HARRY
Ginny?

PHINEAS
Yes that is her name….

RON
What happened to her you git!

PHINEAS
So much anger I sense. Besides 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
Luna and Neville. Sir…how did Snape punish them?

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

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

HERMIONE
Professor Black. Is it possible for you to bring Dumbledore 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.
  


Ron's Departure:    


  HERMIONE
Harry!

HARRY
I know!

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..

HARRY
Well, you’ve obviously got a problem. 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.

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, good thing your house elf had it. 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. I heard you two talking back in Grimmauld Place.

RON
This is pathetic.

HARRY
So why are you still here?

RON
Search me!

Ron storms out of the tent. 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?

HARRY
What about them?

RON
For all we know something could have happened to them because of what Ginny did. You didn’t think about that did you? 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!

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.

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. Harry walks over and picks up the Horcrux staring down at it. The camera slowly zooms in onto the locket.

INT. THE WOODS-WEEKS LATER

The scene fades to Hermione shooting protective spells around the snowy tent. Once she casts the final spell she wipes tears from her face and walks slowly back into the tent.

INT. THE WOODS-THE TENT-MOMENTS LATER

HERMIONE
They’re all up. Has Phineas been back yet?

HARRY
No, but he’ll be back soon enough. He’s been good company the past few weeks since….

He looks up at the hurt expression on her face and quickly changes the subject.

HARRY
Hermione I’ve been thinking. I want to go to Godric’s Hollow.

HERMIONE
That’s not a good idea Harry. Don’t you think You-Know-Who will know you want to visit your parents grave.

HARRY
Not just that…look…

He hands Hermione his mothers letter.

HARRY
I found this at Grimmauld Place. It’s from my mum. She mentions Bathilda Bagshot.

HERMIONE
Bathilda Bagshot? The author of ‘A History of Magic?’ I didn’t know she was from there.

HARRY
She would visit them and she told them stories of Dumbledore. The letter stops there. Do you think Dumbledore could’ve asked her to keep a Horcrux?

HERMIONE
It’s possible…

HARRY
Plus I’m sure Dumbledore knew I wanted to go back there. Plus the fact that’s he’s from there…

HERMIONE
True, Godric Gryffindor aswell.

HARRY
Gryffindor? We have to go Hermione! What else do we have to lose?

HERMIONE
Ok we can go. I’m brewing Polyjuice Potion at the moment and we can disguise ourselves as other people.

HARRY
How long until it’s done?

HERMIONE
Oh a few weeks….

HARRY
A few weeks! Hermione that’s to long. Listen we’ll be fine. We have the cloak and I’ll have you there with me.

Hermione stares at Harry and sighs.

HERMIONE
When did you become so persuasive?

Harry shrugs and smiles and the scene cuts to a wideshot of GODRIC’S HALLOW. The camera pans down into the town. We see 4 pair of footsteps appear in the snow.
  


Whoooo! I can't wait for DH part 2

Or change it up to be 'It's a place for mad people isn't it?' I just feel the 'If so, then I will not follow you' is a lead in to the musical version of HBP. If sooooo...I will not follow you u u u!!!

Also I think cutting the 'See you at Hogwarts' then' will make the scene flow aswell. Just have Dumbledore say goodbye and turn to leave and Tom ask about the Snakes. Also I feel (although what you have is fine) that you should keep the lines that Harry/Dumbledore say right after Harry leaves the Pensieve the same. 'Did you know...' After Dumbledore answers have Harry think for a bit and then ask about his mother like in your script. I think the 'Did you know...' is a natural first response instead of his mother you know?

So if you added that then you'd have to change ur line from Dumbledore slightly.



Those were just a few things I noticed while reading nothing major. Like I said good job and yeah that first bit is the opening of DH. Yeah the line is a bit cliche. Harry Potter always needs one so I thought hey why not start it out right I'll try and rework it though. Thanks!

Thanks again! I cut that line. I didn't think of it that way

I didn't cut "See you at Hogwarts then" line. However, I omitted "It was nice to meet you, Tom". That didn't really fit into the situation.

I agree, it's naturally that Harry asks Dumbledore about his knowledge to Tom's malevolence at that time.
I don't know how I can change it. I think it flows well as it is. I know not all of it is canon. Here Dumbledore said that Tom was probably a bit lonely and he later realized he didn't need any friends. In the book I got the impression he never wanted friends. But this way I'm giving this evil characher much more depth and personality. And Dumbledore feels he should have helped him and says he should've realized it. Then he mentions the stealing, Harry asks why he stole and Dumbledore explains he was a collector. It's crucial information which Harry doesn't know then. Therefor, Harry wouldn't suddenly just asked why he stole lots of objects if Dumbledore hadn't mention it.

I'll try to get it right

EDIT: Now I've done what you suggested! Thank you, Phrozenone I also added something new which was quite interesting. Dumbledore made the black liquid in the pensieve change from Tom Riddle to the locket and then Merope screaming in pain. He drew the connection between them, seemed to realize that Slytherin's locket was crucial. Now, when Harry asked about Voldemort's mother it didn't come as a bolt from the blue. It seemed like he almost felt sorry for Tom Riddle who lost his mother so early, most likely because he did himself.

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

Phrozenone, I read "The Dark Lord Ascending" and I have to say it flows well. The scene is a little bit short in my opinion. I wish you could extend the part of Charity Burbage. You got the right mood to the scene and established Voldemort's view on muggles. But compared to the book I missed some depth on this. If your script had made it into a film the non-book readers would at this point believe Voldemort's key target was to kill all muggles and controll the world. It may give more sense in the context of the whole film/screenplay, though. They would probably have got it in the end. It seems like you have used a lot of time planning all these scripts so I must praise you for that, and good job. Keep up the good work!

I like this extract:

CHARITY BURBAGE
Severus…please….please….

It reminds me of Dumbledore's death scene in HBP. Once again the audience is reminded of Snape's betrayal.

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

Phorzenone I love your script, I really hope the real DH starts with the flashback, and the newspaper was a great touch

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

I'm really enjoying reading all these scripts. For the books where the films are already out, I find it interesting to see what you guys have left out and put in compared with what the film-makers put in and left out.
Please keep it up-they're really good. Can't wait to see what you do with DH Part II

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

I everyone, I really enjoy your fanscripts and the most of them are really great! Honestly. A little while ago I start working on my own version of Deathly Hallows and here are the first scenes!
I would really want you to comment on it and I will try to continue on it (or at least what I consider the High-Lights of the book)!

Enjoy reading


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I:    


  
Chapters 1 -4
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART I


Written by

Steven Kloves


Based on the book by

J.K. Rowling


We home in on a dark COUNTRY ROAD. The only LIGHT is coming from an old LAMPPOST that FLICKERS. Then it goes out. When it goes back on, a CLOAKED PERSON has appeared out of nowhere.

The CAMERA looks up and the LOGO emerges in the sky.


1 - EXT. WILTSHIRE/MALFOY MANOR – NIGHT

A WIDE HELICOPTER SHOT from MALFOY MANOR. We follow the CLOAKED PERSON to the WROUGHT-IRON GATES. He rolls his SLEEVE. He shows the DARK MARK on his left forearm. The GATES swing open. When he arrives at the FRONT DOOR, he knocks and he is revealed to be Severus Snape. Narcissa Malfoy appears in the doorstep.

NARCISSA MALFOY
Follow me, the Dark Lord is waiting for you.

CUT TO:


2 - INT. MALFOY MANOR/DRAWING ROOM – SECONDS LATER

We home in on the DARK SILHOUET of Lord Voldemort. Sitting at the HEAD of a LONG TABLE in front of the FIREPLACE. A HUGE SNAKE draped around his NECK. The DOOR slams open.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Snape … You are very nearly late.

SEVERUS SNAPE
My Lord, there was some business to take care of.

LORD VOLDEMORT
I hope you have the information I asked for.

Snape takes place next to Voldemort. The CAMERA shows the present DEATH EATERS sitting at the table. The FRIGHTENED Carrows. A CROUCHED Peter Pettigrew. A PROUD Bellatrix Lestrange. The DEPSONDENT Narcissa Malfoy, the BEATEN UP Lucius Malfoy and the TERRIFIED Draco Malfoy.

SEVERUS SNAPE
My Lord, The Order of the Phoenix intends to move Harry Potter from his current place of safety on Saturday next, at nightfall.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Interesting. And this information comes …

SEVERUS SNAPE
… from the source we discussed, My Lord.

One of the DEATH EATERS stands up and takes off his DEATH EATER MASK.

YAXLEY
My Lord, I have heard differently.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Speak, Yaxley.

YAXLEY
I have heard that Potter will be moved the thirtieth, the night before the boy turns seventeen.

SEVERUS SNAPE
And what source is so reliable that we can trust on this?

YAXLEY
One of the officials close to the Minister for Magic himself. He told me that the escort of Potter will be arranged by the Order of the Phoenix and some of the Aurors for ultimate protection.

SEVERUS SNAPE
I assure you Yaxley, the Auror Office will play no further part in the protection of Harry Potter. The Order knows that we have infiltrated the Ministry of Magic.

Voldemorts EYES NARROW. He STROKES the snake with his LONG FINGERS.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Where are they going to hide the boy next?

SEVERUS SNAPE
At the home of one of the Order, My Lord. The place has been given every protection the Order and the Ministry could provide. I think there won’t be a chance taking him there, My Lord. Unless … the Ministry will have fallen before the Order can move Potter.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Well Yaxley … Will the Ministry have fallen by that time?

Yaxley SWALLOWS and looks around ANXIOUS.

YAXLEY
My Lord, infiltrating the Ministry of Magic … I have, with difficulty and after great effort, succeeded in placing an Imperius Curse upon one of the highest officials within the Ministry: Pius Thicknesse.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Let me make something clear … The new Minister for Magic we are dealing with is nothing compared to Cornelius Fudge. Rufus Scrimgeour is an intelligent person and although we already have infiltrated the Ministry, he is not blind. Before I take over the Ministry for Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour must be surrounded by our people. One failed attempt on his life will set me back a long way.

YAXLEY
Yes, My Lord. But I …


LORD VOLDEMORT
Silence!

Voldemort RAISED his hand. His SNAKE opens his MOUTH and HISSES ANGRILY.

LORD VOLDEMORT
The Ministry of Magic will not be mine next Saturday. If we cannot touch the boy at his destination, then it must be done while he travels.

SEVERUS SNAPE
Permission to speak, My Lord.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Yes.

SEVERUS SNAPE
Now the Order of the Phoenix knows the Ministry of Magic has been infiltrated, they will certainly not make use of any way of traveling controlled by the Ministry of Magic. That means …

LORD VOLDEMORT
… he will have to move in the open.

The EYES of Voldemort TWINKLE. A SUPPRESSED SMILE appears on his face.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Next Saturday we will be ready when Harry Potter shall be moved from his safety. No mistakes are allowed, there have been too many mistakes where Harry Potter is concerned. Some of them have been my own. That Potter lives is due more to my errors, than to his triumphs
.

We get an CLEAR SHOT of the MALFOYS looking down FRIGHTENED.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Lucius!

Lucius Malfoy looks up ANXIOUS. He stands up and SQUARES HIS SHOULDERS.

LUCIUS MALFOY
Yes, My Lord.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Now I am not allowed to make any mistake concerning Potter, I am in desperate need of another wand. And after your failure last summer, I see no reason for you to have a wand any more.

LUCIUS MALFOY
My Lord?

LORD VOLDEMORT
Give me your wand, Lucius.

Lucius HESTITATES. He HANDS OVER his WAND to Voldemort. Lucius seems to EXPECT that Voldemort would give him HIS WAND.

LORD VOLDEMORT
You are suggesting I will give me my own wand? I have give you your liberty, is that not enough for you? But I have noticed that you and your family seem less than happy of late … what is it about my presence in your home that displeases you?

LUCIUS MALFOY
Nothing … nothing, My Lord.

LORD VOLDEMORT
SUCH LIES! CRUCIO!

Voldemort WAVES his WAND. Lucius FALLS DOWN and WRIGGLES in PAIN. Bellatrix Lestrange STANDS UP.

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
My Lord, it is an honour to have you here, in our family’s house. There can be no higher pleasure.

LORD VOLDEMORT
No higher pleasure. That means a great deal, Bellatrix, from you.

Her EYES get FILLED with TEARS of HAPPINESS. Voldemort DEMANDS her to sit.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Wormtail … Bring us the prisoner.


3. INT. MALFOY MANOR/HIDDEN BASEMENT – SECONDS LATER

Wormtail walks down the DARK STAIRCASE. He opens a LOCKED DOOR. He enters the BASEMENT. TWO PRISONERS are sitting in the CORNER of the EMPTY CHAMBER. TIED UP. Prisoners are REVEALED to be Ollivander and an UNKNOWN WOMAN. Wormtail grabs her with his SILVER HAND. They LEAVE.

UNKNOWN WOMAN
Please … Don’t do this …


4. INT. MALFOY MANOR/DRAWING ROOM – SECONDS LATER

Voldemort looks back when Wormtail enters.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Do you recognize our guest, Severus?

SEVERUS SNAPE
I do.

LORD VOLDEMORT
And you, Draco? Wasn’t she one of your teachers at Hogwarts? The one that wrote an impassioned defense of Mudbloods in the Daily Prophet. Professor Charity Burbage … Not content with corrupting and polluting the minds of wizarding children.

Charity Burbage CRIES and BEGGS FOR HER LIFE.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Avada Kedavra!

A JET of GREEN LIGHT knocks her over. She is DEAD.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Dinner, Nagini …

The SNAKE slipped of his shoulders towards Charity Burbage. Voldemort LAUGHS while the DEATH EATERS look FRIGHTENED.

LORD VOLDEMORT
By the end of the summer, the Ministry of Magic will have been fallen and Harry Potter shall be dead.

CUT TO:

5. INT. MINISTRY FOR MAGIC/MINISTER’S OFFICE – MORNING

We home in an a DESK filled with PAPERWORK. A hand grabs the QUILL and dips it in an INKWELL. Before he can start writing, we hear a door open up.

MINISTRY OFFICIAL (O.S.)
Sir, they are ready.

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR (O.S.)
Thank you.

He puts down the QUILL. We see his face. He stands up and DUSTS his ROBES.


5. INT. MINISTRY FOR MAGIC/CONFERENCE ROOM – MOMENTS LATER

Rufus Scrimgeour walks on the STAGE. ATTENDED by two AURORS.

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR
As you all know, the world is changing.

He PAUSES for a while. He puts his GLASSES on the tip of his NOSE.

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR
More people are disappearing every day.

A WIDE SHOT of the press and the MINISTRY OFFICIALS present in the COGERENCE ROOM. Several PICTURES are made.

REPORTER 1
Is there any news on the disappearance of Charity Burbage and Amelia Bones?

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR
There is no news regarding those two disappearances.

REPORTER 2 (O.S.)
Is there any progress in the murder investigation of Albus Dumbledore?

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR
Albus Dumbledore has been killed by Death Eaters who have succeeded in penetrating the castle of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

REPORTER 3 (O.S.)
Are our children still save at Hogwarts now Dumbledore is no more?

REPORTER 4 (O.S.)
Is it true that Severus Snape was involved the death of Dumbledore?

RUFUS SCRIMGEOUR
The only thing I can assure you is this: dark times lie ahead. The Ministry of Magic is working on ultimate security for both the Wizarding as the Muggle World. The Muggle Prime Minister has been contacted recently and has been informed of the open war we have with the Dark Forces of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

A HUGE FLASH and the image of Scrimgeour FREEZES and TURNS INTO this picture on the FRONTPAGE of the DAILY PROPHET.

CUT TO:


6. INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/HARRY POTTER’S BEDROOM - EVENING

The camera SLIDES over the DAILY PROPHET with SCRIMGEOUR at the CONFERENCE. An older copy with the FACE of Albus Dumbledore ‘ALBUS DUMBLEDORE: IN MEMORIAM’. SCHOOLBOOKS. SOCKS. THE FAKE LOCKET. The camera goes up and we see Harry sitting on his BED. He holds his INVISIBILTY CLOAK, the MARAUDERS MAP and an PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM. He tries to put it in a RUCKSACK.

VERNON DURSLEY (O.S.)
Boy!


7. INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/LIVING ROOM – MOMENTS LATER

Harry walks in with his RUCKSACK and WAND.

VERNON DURSLEY
Put that thing away!

HARRY POTTER
You mean this?

Harry points it at Vernon who JUMPS BACKWARDS. Petunia Dursley SCREAMS.

VERNON DURSLEY
Put it away! And sit down! I have changed my mind.

HARRY POTTER
What a surprise.

VERNON DURSLEY
I have decided I don’t believe a word of it. According to you, Petunia, Dudley and I are in danger. You claim that this Lord …

HARRY POTTER
… Voldemort.

VERNON DURSLEY
You claim that he will find you here and so we are not safe anymore? I think you are just … We think that this is a plot to get the house!

HARRY POTTER
The house? What house?

VERNON DURSLEY
This house! Our house! House prices are sky-rocketing round here! You want us out of the way so you have …

HARRY POTTER
Are you out of your mind? A plot to get this house? Are you actually as stupid as you look?

PETUNIA DURSLEY
Don’t you dare to talk to us like that!

HARRY POTTER
In case you’ve forgotten, I’ve already got a house, my godfather left me one in London. So why would I want this one? All the happy memories?

VERNON DURSLEY
So you claim that …

HARRY POTTER
Lord Voldemort is on the move! Hundreds of people are disappearing and dying these days. These crashes and explosions and derailments and whatever has happened since we last watched the news … Even the fogs are caused by his hand. Mr. Weasley and Kingsley Shacklebolt were quite clear about all this!

VERNON DURSLEY
Let’s say … for the sake of argument … we accept this protection. I still don’t see why we can’t have this Kingsley bloke!

HARRY POTTER
As I’ve told you, Kingsley is protecting your Prime Minister. You saw him on the news! Do you actually think he will escort three Muggles to safety while the government is in grave danger? Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle are members of the Order of the Phoenix, they are skilled and they are armed … in case something should happen.

VERNON DURSLEY
But what about my work? What about Dudley’s school? I don’t suppose those things matter to a bunch of layabout wizards …

HARRY POTTER
Don’t you understand? He will torture and kill you like they did my parents!

Everyone goes SILENT. Dudley SWALLOWS. Vernon and Petunia look each other in the eyes.

DUDLEY DURSLEY
I’m going with these Order people.

HARRY POTTER
Dudley, for the first time in your life, you’re actually talking sense. They’ll be here in about five minutes so be ready.


8. INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/HALLWAY – SECONDS LATER

Harry walks away but HALFWAY up the STAIRS, the DOORBELL rings. Harry runs to the DOOR and Dedalus Diggle and Hestia Jones appears in the DOORSTEP.

DEDALUS DIGGLE
Harry Potter! An honour as ever!

HARRY POTTER
Thanks Dedalus. Thank you both for doing this.

Vernon, Petunia and Dudley arrive in the HALLWAY.

DEDALUS DIGGLE
I see you are packed and ready! The plan is that we leave just before Harry does. So I would like to ask you to follow us to the car where we … I presume you know how to drive, I take it?

VERNON DURSLEY
Know how to …? Ofcourse I bloody know how to drive!

DEDALUS DIGGLE
Excellent! You, Harry, will wait here for you guard. There has been a little change in the arrangements. Mad-Eye will explain everything when they arrive.

HESTIA JONES
Perhaps we should wait outside in the hall, Dedalus.

VERNON DURSLEY
There’s no need. Well, this is goodbye, then, boy. Come on, Dudley … Petunia.

HESTIA JONES
Excuse me?

HARRY POTTER
It doesn’t matter. Honestly.

HESTIA JONES
Doesn’t matter? Don’t these people realize what you’ve been through? What danger you are in? The unique position you hold in the hearts of the movement against Voldemort?

HARRY POTTER
They think I’m a waste of space, actually. But I’m used to it.

DUDLEY DURSLEY
I don’t think you’re a waste of space.

HARRY POTTER
Well … er … thanks Dudley.

DUDLEY DURSLEY
You saved my life.

HARRY POTTER
Actually the Dementor would have only taken your soul.

Hestia looks ANGRY to Vernon. Petunia starts to CRY and HUGS Dudley.

PETUNIA DURSLEY
So sweet of my little Dudders. Such a lovely boy … saying thank you.

HESTIA JONES
But he hasn’t said thank you at all!

HARRY POTTER
Yeah, but coming from Dudley that’s like ‘I love you’.

VERNON DURSLEY
Are we going or not?

He WALKS out followed by Petunia who is still HUGGING Dudley. Harry and Dudley look each other in the EYES on more time and then they go OFF SCREEN.

HESTIA JONES
They will arrive any minute, you will be in save hands.

DEDALUS DIGGLE
Good luck, Harry. I hope we meet again!

HARRY POTTER
Thank you, guys. Goodbye!

Harry shuts the DOOR behind and runs up the STAIRS.


9. INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/HARRY POTTER’S BEDROOM – SECONDS LATER

Harry grabs the FAKE LOCKET and puts it in his RUCKSACK. Then he grabs HEDWIG’s CAGE. Suddenly a BRIGHT HEADLIGHT shines through his window. Harry looks more closely and sees BROOMS flying towards the house, led by an FLYING MOTORCYCLE. He RUNS downstairs with the HEDWIG in his hands.

10. EXT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/BACKGARDEN – MOMENTS LATER

Harry WALKS through the GLASS DOORS of the CLOSED VERANDA. Hagrid is sitting on the FLYING MOTORCYCLE and steps off it.

RUBEUS HAGRID
Hi, Harry!

HARRY POTTER
Hagrid!

Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger LAND on the LAWN. They step of their BROOMS.

HARRY POTTER
Ron! Hermione!

HERMIONE GRANGER
He were so worried!

She HUGS him for some seconds. Ron SMILES.

RON WEASLEY
Bloody glad to see you mate.

Four more people step of their BROOMS. A SMILING Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks. A GRINNING Fred and George Weasley.

FRED AND GEORGE WEASLEY
Hi, Harry!

Alastor Moody LEANING on his WALKING STICK. Kingsley Shacklebolt holding his BROOM. Mr. Weasley SMILES KINDLY. Three more other people LAND in the GARDEN.

HARRY POTTER
I wasn’t expecting this many of you!

ALASTOR MOODY
Change of plan. Let’s go in before we talk you through it.


11. EXT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/KITCHEN – SAME TIME

HARRY POTTER
Kingsley, I thought you were looking after the Prime Minister.

KINGSLEY SHACKLEBOLT
He can get along without me for one night. You´re more important.

NYMPHADORA TONKS
Harry! Guess what?

She shows a RING on her LEFT HAND. SMILING she EMBRACES Lupin.

HARRY POTTER
You got married?

REMUS LUPIN
I’m sorry you couldn’t be there, Harry, it was very quiet.

HARRY POTTER
That’s amazing! Congratulations!

RON WEASLEY
Luckily you won’t miss the wedding of Bill and Fleur.

HARRY POTTER
Bill and Fleur?

Harry TURNS AROUND and looks at Fleur Delacour and ANOTHER PERSON standing in the CORNER of the kitchen. He walks towards Harry and SHAKES his HAND.

BILL WEASLEY
Great pleasure to finally meet you. Bill Weasley.

HARRY POTTER
Ron’s oldest brother?

BILL WEASLEY
The one and only.

FLEUR DELACOUR
Harry!

HARRY POTTER
Fleur Delacour? Are you marrying Bill Weasley?

FLEUR DELACOUR
Yes. Next week we will get married at the Burrow. I am glad you can be there! I can never thank you enough for saving my sister Gabrielle from those horrible creatures.

ALASTOR MOODY
Enough! We’ll have time for a cosy catch-up later. As everyone already knows, we had to abandon Plan A. Pius Thicknesse has gone over to the Dark Side, which gives us a big problem. He’s made it an imprisonable offence to connect this house to the Floo Network, place a Portkey here or Apparate in or out. All done in the name of your protection, to prevent You-Know-Who getting in at you. Absolutely pointless, seeing as your mother’s charm does that already. What he’s really done is to stop you getting out of here safely. Second problem: you’re still under-age, which means you’ve still got the Trace on you.

HARRY POTTER
The Trace?

ALASTOR MOODY
The Trace, the Trace! The charm that detects magical activity around under-seventeens, the way the Ministry finds out about under-age magic! If you, or anyone around, casts a spell to get you out of here, Thicknesse is going to know about it, and so will the Death Eaters.

KINGSLEY SHACKLEBOLT
And we can’t wait for the Trace to break, because the moment you turn seventeen, you’ll lose all the protection your mother gave you.

HARRY POTTER
So what are we going to do?

ALASTOR MOODY
We’re going to use the only means of transport left to us: brooms and Hagrid’s flying motorbike. The one thing we’ve got our side is that You-Know-Who doesn’t know we’re moving you tonight. We’ve leaked a fake trail to the Ministry: they think you’re not leaving until the thirtieth. But we can never be sure enough. He’s bound to have a couple of Death Eaters patrolling g the skies in this general area, just in case. So we’ve given a dozen different houses every protection we can throw at them. They all look like they could be the place we’re going to hide you because all of them got some connection with the Order: my house, Kingsley’s place, the house of Tonks’s parents. Get it?

HARRY POTTER
Yeah.

ALASTOR MOODY
You’ll be going to Tonks’s parents. From there you are able to use a Portkey to the Burrow.

HARRY POTTER
Maybe they won’t know which of the secure houses I’m heading for at first, but won’t it be sort of obvious once fourteen of us fly off Tonks’s parents?

ALASTOR MOODY
Ah! I forgot to mention the key point. Fourteen of us won’t be flying to Tonks’s parents. 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 POTTER
No! No way!

HERMIONE GRANGER
I told them you’d take it like this.

HARRY POTTER
If you think I’m going to let six people risk their lives … no way! And by the way, you can’t do this if I don’t cooperate. You need me to give you some hair.

FRED WEASLEY
Thirteen of us against one bloke who’s not allowed to use magic; we’ve got no chance.

HARRY POTTER
Funny. Really amusing.

ALASTOR MOODY
If it has to come to force, then it will.

MUNDUNGUS FLETCHER
I say we don’t force him. If Harry doesn’t want us to …

ALASTOR MOODY
Shut up, you coward!

GEORGE WEASLEY
Mundungus, why did you actually joined the Order of the Phoenix?

MUNDUNGUS FLETCHER
I am not afraid! But I told you that I prefer to be a protector.

ALASTOR MOODY
Shut it. As I’ve already told you, you spineless worm, any Death Eaters we run into will be aiming to capture Potter, not kill him. Dumbledore always said You-Know-Who would want to finish Potter in person. It’ll be the protectors who have got the most to worry about.

Harry PULLS out some HAIR. MOODY prepares the POLYJUICE POTION. He divides it in SIX GLASSES.

ALASTOR MOODY
Altogether, then …

Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Fleur and Mundungus grab a GLASS. They DRINK and start to TRANSFORM into Harry slowly. Moody shows a PACKAGE of CLOTHING and some GLASSES.

GEORGE WEASLEY
Wow, Fred. We’re actually identical!

ALASTOR MOODY
Here I have some fitting clothes.

Ron SNEAKILY looks down his UNDERWEAR.

RON WEASLEY
I know Ginny lied …

HERMIONE GRANGER
Harry, your eyesight is awful!

ALASTOR MOODY
Good. The pairs will be as follows: Mundungus will be travelling with me, by broom.

MUNDUNGUS FLETCHER
Why am I with you?

ALASTOR MOODY
Because you’re the one that needs watching! Arthur and Fred … Remus with George … Bill, you take your fiancée … Miss Granger will be guarded by Kingsley and Ron will pair up with Nymphadora.

HAGRID
Which leaves you and me, Harry! We will take Sirius’ motorcycle.

ALASTOR MOODY
Three minutes before we’re supposed to leave. No point locking the back door, it won’t keep Death Eaters out when they come looking. Come on …


12. EXT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE/BACKGARDEN – MOMENTS LATER - NIGHT

Hagrid CLIMBS UP the MOTORCYCLE. Harry takes place in the SIDECAR. He HOLDS the CAGE of HEDWIG on his KNEES.

HAGRID
Arthur’s done a bit of tinkering. It’s got a few tricks up its handlebars now. That one was my idea.

We home in on a PURPLE BUTTON next to the SPEEDOMETER. Arthur Weasley walks towards them.

ARTHUR WEASLEY
Please be careful, Hagrid. And only use that one in emergencies. Good luck, Harry.

ALASTOR MOODY
Everyone ready. I want us all to leave at exactly the same time or the whole point of the diversion’s lost. Don’t break ranks if one of us get’s killed! One …

Hagrid STARTS the ENGINE.

ALASTOR MOODY
… two …

Harry GRABS the CAGE tight. He CLOSES his EYES.

ALASTOR MOODY
… THREE!

The MOTORCYCLE rises fast into the sky FLANKED by MULTIPLE BROOMS. We get an WIDE HELICOPTER SHOT of PRIVER DRIVE. When they reach the CLOUDS THIRTY CLOAKED and MASKED DEATH EATERS surround them on BROOMS. Hagrid ACCELERATES and LEANS OVER a bit. HEDWIG’s CAGE slips to Harry’s hands. We see the CAGE disappearing as it FALLS DOWN.

HARRY POTTER
NO! HEDWIG!

We close in on a MASKED Bellatrix Lestrange and two other MASKED DEATH EATERS. All three of them with their WANDS pointed at their opponents.

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
Kill everyone in your way! Find the boy!

Harry DRAWS his WAND and starts CASTING SPELLS at the DEATH EATERS. The CLOUDS are LIGHTENED UP by SILVER, GREEN and RED JETS OF LIGHT.

HARRY POTTER
Stupefy! Stupefy!

One of the DEATH EATERS gets hit by Harry and FALLS of his BROOM. Three GREEN FLASHES miss Harry and Hagrid. Harry DISARMS one of the DEATH EATERS. More of them SURROUND him and HAGRID.

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

Hagrid SLAMS his hand on the PURPLE BUTTON. HUGE WHITE-HOT and BLUE FLAMES burst from the EXHAUST. TWO DEATH EATERS get hit and CATCH FIRE. They SCREAM while the MOTORCYCLE shoots forwards like a bullet. Harry looks down the CONNECTIONS of the SIDECAR and sees a few of them are SPLINTERED up.

RUBEUS HAGRID
It’s all right, Harry! I’m on it!

Hagrid PULLS his PINK UMBRELLA from inside his JACKET. He AIMS it at the CONNECTIONS.

HARRY POTTER
No! Let me …

RUBEUS HAGRID
Reparo!

A SILVER LIGHT DESTROYS the CONNECTIONS and the SIDECAR starts to lose height. Harry YELLS but HAGRID TURNS AROUND and FLIES towards him.

RUBEUS HAGRID
Harry! Jump!

Harry GRABS his RUCKSACK and JUMPS to the MOTORCYCLE who flies just UNDERNEATH the falling SIDECAR. He LANDS on the backseat.

HARRY POTTER
CONFRINGO!

The SPELL hit the SIDECAR, which EXPLODED. A DEATH EATER is BLASTED of his BROOM and VANISHES. Then two DEATH EATERS FLY towards them. One of them BELLATRIX LESTRANGE who looks to Harry CLOSELY.

HARRY POTTER
Just keep flying!

BELLATRIX LESTRANGE
That’s him! It’s the real Harry Potter!

HARRY POTTER
STUPEFY!

The SPELL MISSES. All the DEATH EATERS fall back. It remains SILENT apart from the ENGINE.

RUBEUS HAGRID
Harry, what’s happened? Have we lost them?

HARRY POTTER
I don’t think so! They only fall back when I …

Then Lord Voldemort APPEARS out of NOWWHERE and keeps FLYING next to the MOTORCYCLE with his WAND AIMED at them. Two DEATH EATERS join him. One of them RAISES his WAND.

RUBEUS HAGRID
No!

He JUMPS off the MOTORCYCLE and LAUNCHES himself on the DEATH EATER. VANISHING in the sky as they FALL. The MOTORCYCLE starts falling.

LORD VOLDEMORT
Avada

A GOLDEN LIGHT appears out of Harry’s WAND and HITS Voldemort’s. His WAND EXPLODES and when Harry PRESSES the PURPLE BUTTON, Voldemort COLLAPSES into an INVISIBLE wall. He falls down and CRASHES into a MUDDY POND. MUD SPLASHING everywhere. Fades to black.

I liked it too. It was just like in Spiderman sequels when they show the recaps of the previous movies in comic book style

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

KJ Riddle-I really enjoyed reading your script. It seemed, in my opinion, quite well paced. It didn't feel like you rushed through parts too quickly or lingered on other parts too long which is good. I could also picture the actors doing that and saying what you'd written.

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

Wow - I just realised that it's been over 2 years since I starting writing my scripts! And in the last year I've hardly done anything towards them I'm actually thinking of re-writing PS. I was being too lenient with keeping everything in before!

Edit: I said I'd do it - and so I have! The first 12 pages of my new script, which was previously 20 pages worth!

New PS script:    


  
FADE IN:

INT. HALL OF PROPHECY - NIGHT

As we fade in, indistinguishable voices are heard. A spherical shape begins to be seen, and the voices become clearer and clearer...

MALE PROPHET
At the solciste will come a new...

SYBILL TRELAWNEY
He will return tonight!

FEMALE PROPHET
And none will come after...

SYBILL TRELAWNEY
(Louder than the others)
The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord -

We go into the spherical shape -

EXT. GODRIC’S HOLLOW - NIGHT

- and a small cottage forms.

SYBILL TRELAWNEY
- approaches.

Suddenly the house is filled with green light. A baby’s cry can be heard.

CUT TO BLACK

FADE TO:

TITLE: HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE

The title floats upon an ominous background.

FADE TO:

EXT. PRIVET DRIVE - MORNING

We track up the footpath, meet a stray tabby cat, then pan up to woman outside number 4 (PETUNIA), who kisses her husband (VERNON) while trying to stop her baby boy (DUDLEY) cry.

EXT. LITTLE WHINING - MORNING
Vernon stops his car, amongst the morning traffic. He eyes a man and a woman whispering to each other, about to cross the road. They are wearing cloaks, looking extremely out of place.

CLOAK WEARING MAN
(As the cross in front of Vernon)
The Potters - that’s what I heard.

CLOAK WEARING WOMAN
Yes, yes - they’re son Harry...

Vernon sits in his car, dread slowly covering his face.

BEEP! The car behind him toots and Vernon doesn’t notice the traffic move again.

JIM MCGUFFIN (V.O.)
(As Vernon drives off)
Well, not only are some people celebrating Halloween a day late, -

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - NIGHT

Vernon is watching the news.

JIM MCGUFFIN
(On TV)
- today the nations owl’s have suddenly changed their sleeping pattern. There have been hundreds of sighting of this birds flying in daylight. Most mysterious.

VERNON
Er - Petunia

Petunia is makig dinner.

PETUNIA
Yes?

VERNON
You haven’t from your sister late--

PETUNIA
(With force)
No. Why?!

VERNON
Funny stuff on the news. I thought, maybe, it could have been her lot.

Petunia just sniffs.

VERNON (CONT’D)
Their son - Howard, isn’t it?

PETUNIA
(Obviously annoyed)
Harry. Nasty common name if you ask me.

She goes straight back to cooking.

VERNON
(Becoming unsettled.)
Yes. I quite agree.

We pass through the window -

EXT. PRIVET DRIVE - MIDNIGHT

- to find it is midnight. The stray tabby cat looks impatient upon a brick wall. POP. An eldery man (DUMBLEDORE), wearing a cloak, suddenly walks onto the deserted road. He holds out a cigarette lighter, and with one click, all the lights from the lamp extinguish with a POP.

DUMBLEDORE
Fancy seeing you here, Professor McGonagall.

He turns to the stray tabby cat, who transforms into a woman (MCGONAGALL) with square glasses exactly like the markings that were around the cat’s eyes. They both sit down on the brick wall.

MCGONAGALL
Albus, is it true? Has he really gone?

DUMBLEDORE
It certainly seems so.

McGonagall is shocked.

MCGONAGALL
And James and Lily?

Dumbledore bows his head, and McGonagall gasps.

MCGONAGALL (CONT’D)
But what about Harry?
(Dumbledore says nothing)
What they’re saying is he tried to kill them too, but, but, he couldn’t.

DUMBLEDORE
It’s true.

MCGONAGALL
(Looking more shocked than ever)
After all he’s done, all the people he’s killed. But how did Harry survive?

DUMBLEDORE
We can only guess. We may never know.

Dumbledore looks at his watch.

MCGONAGALL
I don’t suppose you’re going to tell me why you’re here of all places?

DUMBLEDORE
I’ve come to bring Harry to the only family he has left.

MCGONAGALL
(Pointing to number 4)
You can’t mean the people who live here? I’ve been watching them all day. You couldn’t find two people who are less like us. Harry Potter come an live here?!

DUMBLEDORE
(Looking sternly at McGonnagall)
It’s the best place for him.

MCGONAGALL
But how is the boy getting here?

DUMBLEDORE
Hagrid is bringing him.

MCGONAGALL
You think it - wise to trust Hagrid with something as important as this? I’m not saying his heart isn’t in the right place, but he does tend to -

A loud RUMBLE is heard.

MCGONAGALL (CONT’D)
What was that?

A giant motorbike falls down from the sky, ridden by a giant-of-a man (HAGRID), who carries a pile of blankets in his arms.

DUMBLEDORE
Hagrid. At last.

Hagrid passes the pile of blankets to Dumbledore and we see a baby boy (HARRY) inside them.

DUMBLEDORE (CONT’D)
No problems, I hope?

HAGRID
No sir - house was almost destroyed, but I got him out ok.

McGonnagall comes up to look at baby Harry.

MCGONAGALL
(Noticing a lighting-bolt scar on his forehead)
Is that where - ?

DUMBLEDORE
He’ll have that scar forever.

MCGONAGALL
Couldn’t you do something -

DUMBLEDORE
Even if I could, I wouldn’t. Scars can come in handy.

Dumbledore leads the party towards the door of number 4.

HAGRID
(teary)
Could I say good-bye to him sir?

Dumbledore nods and Hagrid bends down to give Harry a kiss. McGonagall pats Hagrid on the arm. Dumbledore places Harry down on the mat, and places a letter on top on him.

DUMBLEDORE
Good luck, Harry.

CUT TO BLACK

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS - MORNING

The noise of a motorbike driving away, then -

PETUNIA (O.S.)
Up! Get up! Now!

10-year-old Harry Potter wakes, but doesn’t want to get out of bed.

PETUNIA (CONT’D)
Get a move on. You have to look after the bacon. And don’t you dare let it burn on Duddy’s special day.

Harry groans.
INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - MORNING

Harry serves bacon as his cousin, Dudley, now 11, counts his birthday presents.

DUDLEY
Thirty-six? That’s two less than last year!

PETUNIA
Darling, you missed Auntie Marge’s present.

DUDLEY
Well that makes it thirty-seven -

PETUNIA
(Sensing trouble)
And we’re going to buy you two new presents!

Vernon comes back from answering the phone.

VERNON
(Sniffing)
Mrs Figg’s broken her leg. Can’t take him.

PETUNIA
Now what?

HARRY
You could just leave me here. I won’t blow up the house!

I/E. DURSLEY’S CAR - MORNING

Harry is coming with them. BRRRMMM. A motorbike drives by.

VERNON
(Complaining)
Young Hoodlums, roaring along like maniacs!

HARRY
I had a dream about a motorbike. It was flying.

Vernon almost crashes the car. He turns around to Harry.

VERNON
Motorbikes don’t fly!

HARRY
It was only a dream...

Harry looks to the window and the shot of him from the outside -

FADE TO:

INT. ZOO REPTILE HOUSE - AFTERNOON

- turns to a boa constrictor fast asleep behind glass. Dudley and his friend, PIERS, run up to it and press there noses on the glass, but Dudley is easily bored.

DUDLEY
(To Vernon)
Make it move!

Vernon taps on the glass. Nothing happens.

DUDLEY (CONT’D)
Do it again!

He does. And nothing happens.

DUDLEY (CONT’D)
This is boring...

He and Piers move off to the next exhibit. Harry, however, stays there.

HARRY
(To the snake)
It must be really annoying.

Harry isn’t concentrating on the snake, and doesn’t notice it begin to move. He notices it as it’s head comes up to the glass. Harry looks around to see no one is watching. The snake winks.

HARRY (CONT’D)
Where do you come from?

The snake taps his tail next to a sign ‘Boa Constrictor, Brazil’

HARRY (CONT’D)
Was it nice there.

The snake taps again. ‘This specimen was bred in the zoo’

HARRY (CONT’D)
(Sighing)
Oh - I see -

PIERS
(Running to the snake)
Dudley! Mr Dursley! You won’t believe what this snake is doing!

Dudley rushes after him, and nudges Harry out of the way. Piers and Dudley are leaning right up to the glass, but become unsupported when the glass disappears. Harry looks shocked. Dudley and Piers fall head first into the cage and become rooted to the spot when the Boa Constrictor slithers out of the exhibit.

BOA CONSTRICTOR
(As it passes Harry)
Thankssss.

Harry is shocked to find it speaking. He looks up to see Vernon looking angrily at him.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - HALL - AFTERNOON

Harry is held by Vernon

VERNON
Go! Cupboard! Stay! No meals!

Harry is pushed into the cupboard.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS - AFTERNOON

Harry is alone and in the dark as Vernon slams the door on him.

FADE TO BLACK.

SERIES OF FLASHBACKS:

INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM - DAY

Harry is shocked as his teacher's wig is suddenly turns blue.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - DAY

Petunia tries to force a jumper over Harry's head. It shrinks and shrinks until it is so small it would fit a glove puppet.

EXT. SCHOOL - DAY

Dudley, PIERS POLKISS and some other of his gang are chasing Harry. Harry tries to jump behind a bin, but finds himself on the roof.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - DAY

A 5-year-old Harry questions Petunia.

HARRY
How did I get my scar?

Petunia stops what she is doing.

PETUNIA
In a car crash - when your parents died.

She walks off.

PETUNIA (CONT’D)
And don’t ask questions!

A flash of green light.

RETURN TO PRESENT.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS - NIGHT

Harry’s eyes are filled with green light as he wakes up from a nightmare.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - MORNING

Harry walks in just as mail can be heard coming through the slot. Harry doesn’t even walk any further, because he knows what is coming.

VERNON
Get the mail, Harry.

Helplessly, he obeys.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - HALL - MORNING

Harry walks up the hall to a pile of mail on the floor. Bored, he fingers through the mail. His eyes open wide at one letter:
Mr H. Potter
The Cupboard under the Stairs
4 Privet Drive
Little Whinging
Surrey

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - MORNING

Walking in, Harry turns over his letter and sees a coat of arms of a lion, eagle, badger and snake around the letter H. Harry gives the rest of the mail to Vernon. He picks up the first in the pile, a postcard.

VERNON
Marge’s ill! Ate a funny whelk -

Harry is about to open his letter -

DUDLEY
Dad! Dad! Harry’s got something!

As Harry is just about to unfold the paper inside, Vernon forces it out of his hands.

HARRY
That’s mine!

VERNON
Who’d be writing to you?

Vernon’s eyes fill with terror as he finds out. Petunia nosies over and looks like she’s about to faint.

VERNON (CONT’D)
Out! Out!

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - HALL - MORNING
Dudley listens through the hall keyhole. Harry listens through the crack at the bottom.

PETUNIA (O.S.)
Look at the address! How do they know where he sleeps?!

VERNON (O.S.)
Watching - spying - might be following us.

PETUNIA (O.S.)
What should we do Vernon?

VERNON (O.S.)
Ignore it.

PETUNIA (O.S.)
But -

VERNON (O.S.)
I’m not having one in my house Petunia!

Harry lies there, confused and intrigued.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS - EVENING

Harry lies in the same position. The lock turns, and Vernon opens the door.

VERNON
Harry. Er. Your aunt and I have been thinking. Er. We think it would be nice is you moved to Dudley’s second bedroom -

HARRY
Why?

VERNON
Don’t. Ask. Questions!

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - HALL - EVENING

Harry is moving his stuff (which is hardly anything) up to his new room. Vernon is nailing up the letterbox, talking to Petunia. Neither notice Harry.

VERNON
See, if they can’t deliver them they’ll just give up.

PETUNIA
(Offering fruit cake)
I’m not sure -

VERNON
Oh these people’s minds work in strange ways.

Vernon takes the fruit cake and hammers another nail with it.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - MORNING

A confused milkman passes eggs through the window to Petunia.

PETUNIA
(Before he can say anything)
We’re renovating.

MILKMAN
And also, these were on your doormat.

He passes about 10 letters addressed to Harry. Petunia’s fake smile falters.

PETUNIA
Thank you!

MILKMAN
Good day.

He leaves and Petunia eyes the change on the letter’s address: ‘The Smallest Bedroom’. She throws them into the fire and continues to cook, selecting one of the new eggs. She breaks it. No yolk. But there is parchment. Petunia’s eyes widen with horror. She breaks more and more eggs. Harry and Dudley walk in. Petunia pulls out letters from each of the dozen eggs. She screams.

DUDLEY
(To Harry)
Who on earth wants to talk to you this badly?

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

That was amazing! I like how you've been loyal to the books without making it exactly like the books.

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

Really enjoyed reading the new PS script. I think you made some good decisions in cutting down one or two of the scenes from the book. Can't wait for the next batch!

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

Well, I'm having a good streak at the moment, which is probably going to fade away soon, knowing me

I probably didn't compress this enough, but it is an important section...

New PS Script, Part 2:    


  
INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - MORNING

Harry is looking out the window, sad. Vernon gleefully spreads marmalade on his toast at the kitchen table.

VERNON
No posts on Sunday!

He takes a bite of his toast.

VERNON (CONT’D)
No letters today - !

But somehow a letter knocks the toast out of his hand. Harry turns around. A rumble can be heard from the fireplace. Everyone stares at it. Suddenly hundreds of letter come flying out of it. Harry jumps up and tries to get one, but he is thrown out of the room by Vernon

VERNON (CONT’D)
Out! Out!

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - HALL - MORNING

Vernon slams the door behind Petunia, Dudley and Harry.

VERNON
(Looking menacing)
That does it. We’re going away!

I/E. COAST - NIGHT

Rain plummets down. The Dursley’s car pulls up to the coast, and Vernon gets out.

PETUNIA
(As Vernon leaves)
Wouldn’t it be better just to go home?

Vernon ignores her and leaves. A bolt of lightning.

DUDLEY
Daddy’s gone mad, hasn’t he?

Harry looks out of the car, its windows splattered by rain. Vernon returns.

VERNON
Found the perfect place! And there’s a storm forecast for tonight.

He makes an evil smile.

VERNON (CONT’D)
Could do with some of those letters now, eh?

EXT. SEA - NIGHT

Vernon rows the party to a small island in the middle of the sea with a small wooden shack upon it.

INT. HUT-ON-THE-ROCK - MIDNIGHT

Harry lies on the stone wall, unable to sleep.

HARRY
(To himself)
Happy Birthday to me...

THUNDER. Harry sighs and rolls over. He notices Dudley’s watch, dangling over the couch where he is sleeping. 11:59pm. 12:00pm. BOOM! Harry turns and Dudley stirs as the door shakes.

DUDLEY
Where’s the cannon?

BOOM! Vernon and Petunia hurry in from another room. vernon carries a rifle

VERNON
Who’s there? I’m armed!

SMASH! The door falls down and HAGRID storms in, looking evil, but says cheerfully -

HAGRID
Couldn’t make us a cup o’ tea? It’s not been an easy journey.

None of them do anything. Hagrid puts the door back in its hinges. He goes to sit down.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
(To Dudley)
Budge up, yer great lump!

Dudley squeals and run to his parents.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
And here’s Harry! Yeh look a lot like yer dad, but you’ve got yer mum’s eyes.

Vernon gains back some courage.

VERNON
I demand that you leave at once!

Without turning, Hagrid puts his hand back and grabs the rifle out of his hands. He ties it easily into a knot and throws it into the corner.

HAGRID
Anyway. Harry, a very happy birthday to yeh.

And he pulls out a cake, with ‘Happy Birthday Harry’ written on it. Harry doesn’t know what to say.

HARRY
Who are you?

HAGRID
(Chuckling)
Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts.

He puts his hand out and shakes Harry’s arm.

HARRY
I’m sorry, but I still don’t really know -

HAGRID
Call me Hagrid, everyone does. An’ like I told yeh, I’m Keeper of the Keys at Hogwarts - yeh’ll know about Hogwarts, o’ course

HARRY
Er - no. Sorry.

HAGRID
(Shocked)
Sorry?
(To the Dursleys)
It’s them that should be sorry!
(To Harry again)
Did yeh ever wonder where yer parents learnt it all?

HARRY
All what?

VERNON
(Stepping out)
Stop! I forbid you to tell -

HAGRID
You never told him? I saw Dumbledore leave that letter, Dursley! An’ yeh’ve kept it from him all these years?

HARRY
Kept what from me?

VERNON
Stop! I forbid -

HAGRID
Oh, go boil yer heads!

Petunia gasps

HAGRID (CONT’D)
Harry, yer a wizard.

No one speaks. Even the storm outside seems less wild.

HARRY
I’m - I’m a what?

HAGRID
Wizard, o’ course. Jus’ like yer parents.

Hagrid pulls out a letter and Harry opens and reads it.

HARRY
(Still shocked)
Dear Mr. Potter, We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

VERNON
He’s not going.

HAGRID
I’d like to see a great Muggle like you stop him!

HARRY
A what?

HAGRID
Muggle, non-magic folk like them - the biggest Muggles I ever laid eyes on!

VERNON
We swore when we took him in we’d stamp out that rubbish!

HARRY
You knew? You knew I’m - a wizard?

PETUNIA
Knew! Of course we knew! How could you not be? How could you not be, my dratted sister being what she was? I was the only one who saw her for what she was - a freak!
(Now enjoying her story)
She met that Potter at that school. She left, got married, and had you, and of course I knew you'd be just the same, just as - abnormal - and then she went and got herself blown up and we got landed with you!

HARRY
Blown up? You told me they died in a car crash!

HAGRID
Car crash?! It’s an outrage! A scandal! Harry Potter not knowin’ his own story!

HARRY
What happened?

HAGRID
(Sighing)
Don’ know if I’m the right person ter tell yeah. Someone Gotta.
Hagrid looks angrily at the Dursleys.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
It begins, I suppose, with - with a person called -

HARRY
Who?

HAGRID
Well - I don’ like saying it. No one does.

HARRY
Why not?

HAGRID
Harry, people are still scared. Seem there was this wizard who went ... bad. Worse. Worse than worse. His name was -

Hagrid tries, but can’t.

HARRY
Could you write in down?

HAGRID
Nah, can’t spell it.
(With much difficulty)
Voldemort. Don’t make me say it again! Anyway - You-Know-Who - ‘bout twenty years ago, started looking for followers. Dark days, harry. Didn’t know who to trust. Terrible things happened. He was takin’ over. ‘Course, some people stood up to him - an’ he killed ‘em. Horribly. One o’ the only safe places left was Hogwarts. Reckon Dumbledore’s the only one he ever feared.
(Changing the subject)
Now, yer mum an’ dad were as good a witch an’ wizard as I ever knew. Head Boy and Girl in their day. All anyone knows is, he turned up in Godric’s Hollow, the village were yeh were livin’, on Halloween ten years ago. -

FLASHBACK:

INT. GODRIC’S HOLLOW - NIGHT

A cloaked man (VOLDEMORT) walks up to a cottage, he notices a mother and father (LILY and JAMES) playing with their son (HARRY)

HAGRID (V.O.)
- Yer was just a year old.

Voldemort pushes the gate open, and makes his way up the path.

HAGRID (V.O.) (CONT’D)
He came to yer house, an’, an’ -

Voldemort charms the door open. James is standing there.

HAGRID (V.O.) (CONT’D)
- he killed ‘em.

A flash of green light and James lies dead on the floor.

INT. GODRIC’S HOLLOW - POTTER’S COTTAGE - NIGHT

Lily protects her son as Voldemort charms open the door of the room they are in. Cut to: A flash of green light as Lily falls down to reveal Harry in his cot behind her.

HAGRID (V.O.)
An’ this is the real myst’ry of the thing - he tried to kill you.

Harry starts to cry.

EXT. GODRIC’S HOLLOW - NIGHT

The house is filled with green light. Harry’s cry continues to be heard.

HAGRID (V.O.)
But he couldn’t.

RETURN TO PRESENT.

INT. HUT-ON-THE-ROCK - NIGHT

Harry is shocked, his lightning-bolt scar showing.

HAGRID
Never wondered how you got that mark on yer forehead? That’s what yeh get when a powerful, evil curse touches yeh. An’ that’s why yer famous, Harry. No one ever lived after he decided ter kill ‘em, no one except you.

Harry looks away. A flash of green light appears on his eyes again, but this time Voldemort makes a cruel laugh.

HARRY
What happened to Vol - I mean, You-Know-Who?

HAGRID
Disappeared. Vanished. Makes yer even more famous. Some say he died. Codswallop, in my opinion. Dunno if he had enough human left in him to die. Most of us reckon he’s still out there somewhere, too weak to carry on. There was something going on that night he hadn’t counted on - I dunno what, no one does - but somethin’ about you stumped him, all right.

Hagrid looks to Harry with warm and thankful eyes.

HARRY
Hagrid, I think you must have made a mistake. I don’t think I can be a wizard -

HAGRID
Not a wizard, eh? Never made things happen when you was scared or angry.

Quick flashbacks:

INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM - DAY

The teacher's wig is suddenly turns blue.

INT. 4 PRIVET DRIVE - KITCHEN - DAY

A jumper shrinks as Petunia forces it over Harry's head.

EXT. SCHOOL - DAY

Harry tries to jump behind a bin, but finds himself on the roof.

INT. ZOO REPTILE HOUSE - AFTERNOON

BOA CONSTRICTOR
(As it passes Harry)
Thankssss.

INT. HUT-ON-THE-ROCK - NIGHT
The hiss of the snake continues to ring in Harry’s ears. Harry looks at Hagrid and he smiles back.

HAGRID
See? You wait - You’ll be right famous at Hogwarts

VERNON
(appearing again)
Haven’t I told you he’s not going.

HAGRID
If he wants to go, you won’t stop him! His name’s been down ever since he was born. He’s off ter the finest school of wizardry in the world, an’ he’ll be under the greatest headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen, Albus Dumble-

VERNON
I’m not paying for some crackpot old fool to teach him magic tricks!

This snaps something in Hagrid, he pulls out a pink umbrella and aims it at Vernon

HAGRID
Never - insult - Albus - Dumbledore - in - front - of - me!

A flash of violet light. Dudley squeals, and a pig’s tail grows between his legs. All the Dursleys scream and run into the next room.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
Shouldn’t have lost me temper.

Hagrid looks to Harry, who is smiling.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
Didn’t work anyway. Meant ter turn him into a pig, but I suppose there wasn’t much left to do.

INT. HUT-ON-THE-ROCK - MORNING

Harry wakes up. Hagrid’s coat falls off him and he smiles. TAP TAP. Harry goes to the window. There is an owl there. He opens the window, and the owl comes in and drops the newspaper it was holding next to Hagrid, then starts to attach his coat.

HARRY
Hagrid! There’s an - owl!

HAGRID
(Grunting)
Give him five knuts.

HARRY
Knuts?

HAGRID
Little bronze coins. Look in the pockets.

Harry tries one of the many pockets of Hagrid’s coat. He withdraws keys and slug pellets, then finds a handful of strange looking coins. Harry gives the owl 5 bronze ones and it flies off. Harry is still shocked.

HAGRID (CONT’D)
(Waking)

Best be off, Harry, gotta buy all yer stuff today.

HARRY
(Still looking at the coins)
Um, Hagrid? I haven’t got any money -

HAGRID
Don’t worry about that. D’yeh think you parents didn’t leave yeh anything? First stop fer us is Gringotts. Wizards’ bank. Run by goblins -

HARRY
Goblins?

HAGRID
Yeah, so you’d be mad ter rob it. Gringotts is the safest place in the world - ‘cept perhaps Hogwarts.

EXT. COAST - ROWBOAT - MORNING

Hagrid taps the boat with his umbrella and it rows itself towards land. He reads the newspaper (The Daily Prophet).

HAGRID
Ministry o’ Magic messin’ things up as usual.

HARRY
There’s a Ministry of Magic?

HAGRID
Yeah. Their main jobis to keep it from the Muggles that were still around. Or then everyone’d be wantin’ magic solutions.

Harry comprehends this.

HARRY
Why would you be mad to rob Gringotts?

HAGRID
Spells - enchantments. They say there’s dragons guardin’ the high security vaults. Crickey, I’d like a dragon.

HARRY
You’d like one?

HAGRID
Wanted one ever since I was a kid. Still got yer letter Harry? Good. There’s a list there of everything you need.

Harry unfolds the letter and reads.

HARRY
1 wand, 1 cauldron, 1 set glass or crystal phials, 1 telescope, 1 set of brass scales. Can we find all this in London?

HAGRID
If yer know where to go.

The boat reaches the shore.
  



Thanks for the positive feedback so far!

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

That was beautiful - almost exactly like the book, though, so I think you might want to change a line or two that were word-for-word from the book and cut it down a little - for example, I think you could cut the whole boat thing and have them cut straight to the hut - it's more detailed than the movie, but less than the book. But a very dramatic shot, like the one where Harry and Dumbledore are standing on a rock in Half-Blood Prince, would fitwell into it as a transition from the day to the stormy night.

Other than that, however, it was BEAUTIFUL. You should have written the Deathly Hallows movies :P
