Hey, I just had this great idea. I remember reading somewhere in the past that J.K. Rowling had written the last page of Book Seven before she even started writing The Sorcerer's (Philosopher's) Stone. Since this means something SIGNIFICANT must happen on that page, I think it would be really cool if everyone wrote their own version of "The Last Page", to see how many different views their are on the series' ending. I'll post mine sometime soon. Feel free to start posting your versions!!
Just pretend the camera is a wand!
There was something like this a while back, and I wrote one for it. Here it is:
Harry dropped to his knees, wand clutched dearly in his hand. He had just killed the Dark Lord. Just taken a life. Just became a murderer.
He knew it had to be done, but now that he had accomplished it, nothing felt right. Everything was so surreal. Voldemort was gone. He was dead.
Harry's mind was numb as he stared at the cold hard floor. Soon his body gave up against the strain to keep awake. The next moment Harry fell to the floor, unconscious.
The morning after, Harry awoke, but he did not open his eyes. The memories of the night before came flooding through his mind, tightening his stomach sickeningly. It would be a while before the relief came. The joy that the Dark Lord was gone forever.
No, that would take time.
Now he heard voices. Whispers, just barely able to be made out.
"I think he's awake, Mum."
"Be quiet. You’ll wake him up."
"But look, he's stirring."
At last Harry opened his eyes, which adjusted to the dim light of the now recognizable hospital wing.
"He's awake. Look, he's awake!" came an anxious whisper, somewhere to Harry's left.
"Shhhhh!!!" This time a scolding tone was used. "Don't talk to him. He'll need his sleep."
Harry tried to move his lips. Tried to say he was fine, but that would have been a lie. He wasn't fine. He had murdered somebody the night before.
Finally, with a huge struggle, Harry managed to mumble, "Wha... happen..."
"It's okay, Harry dear. Everything's fine," said a calm, soothing voice.
Lies. That was a lie. Everything would not be okay.
"Harry, he's gone. Voldemort is dead," said another voice, which Harry recognized as Ron.
Voldemort. That hateful, dreadful name. But yet once again, the sickening sensation in Harry's stomach grew. At once, he leaned over the bed and vomited.
One more person spoke to Harry calmly, but traces of sobbing tainted the coolness of the voice, "Harry, it's all over. He's gone. It's all over." It was Hermione. She repeated the last sentence rather weakly.
Harry nodded solemnly, shutting his eyes once more. What he would not have given to be somebody else. Somewhere else. Anything would have been better than his situation now.
But no, he could not think like that. It was painful to think like that.
He needed to focus on the better side of things. Good things. Things that would make him feel better.
For all you know, the last page might have only one line.
And they all lived happily every after...
Haha just joking...
i rather liked the one hotsause wrote. but having read the first 5 books i think rowling won't let in end so sadly... you notice every book has a happy or at the least normal ending? even for book 5 sirius died rowling managed to make harry smile in the end. so i think she would have carried on a bit to make a happy ending...

where's my prince?
coming out july 16.
The duel was seemingly endless each stroke of the wand mesmerizing the group of death-eaters as their lord and most hated enemy fought.
But it was all for nought as with a final cry the boy who live-d's body slumped downwards his eyes glassed over deaths icy touch leaving before he had even hit the ground .
The snake like eyes glittered menacingly in the dark a smile on the face of.....him , he who shall not be named , you know who ,the dark lord he was the one without a name to these weak mud-bloods and they would soon bow down both wizard and muggle to their new ruler.
And so it was set in stone upon the day February the seventeenth the most powerful wizard n all of mankind the dark lord Voldemort banished Harry Potter from the realm of the living .
