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

After that lengthly dicussion of the Party.....

I did this in the last week. It is horrible. I don't know how to fix it, but Iwant to keep it....

PS: Platform 9 3/4 (It's a terrible mess)INT. KITCHEN - 4 PRIVET DRIVE - EVENING
(A LITTLE LATER) (31/8/1991)

Vernon, Petunia and Dudley are watching TV. Harry enters cautiously. Dudley scurries from the room at the sight of him, pig tail still noticeable.

HARRY POTTER
Er - Uncle Vernon?

Vernon grunts, still watching TV.

HARRY POTTER (CONT’D)
Er - I need to be at King's Cross tomorrow to - to go to Hogwarts.

Vernon grunts again.

HARRY POTTER (CONT’D)
Would it be all right if you gave me a lift?

Grunt again.

HARRY POTTER (CONT’D)
Er - Thank you.

Harry turns to leave, but...

VERNON DURSLEY
Funny way to get to a wizards' school, the train. Magic carpets all got punctures, have they?

Harry simply turns back.

VERNON DURSLEY (CONT’D)
Where is this school, anyway?

HARRY POTTER
(Suddenly realizing the answer)
I don't know.

Harry pulls out his ticket and reads it.

HARRY POTTER (CONT’D)
I just take the train from platform nine and three-quarters at eleven o'clock.

VERNON DURSLEY
Don't talk rubbish. There is no platform nine and three-quarters.

HARRY POTTER
It's on my ticket.

VERNON DURSLEY
Barking, howling mad, the lot of them. You just wait. All right, we'll take you to King's Cross. We're going up to London tomorrow anyway. Got to have Dudley’s ruddy tail removed.

INT. KING’S CROSS STATION - LATE MORNING
(1/9/1991)

On one platform is a big plastic ‘9’ and on the platform next to it is a big plastic ‘10’. Vernon smiles evilly.

VERNON DURSLEY
Well, there you are, boy. Platform nine - platform ten. Your platform should be somewhere in the middle, but they don't seem to have built it yet.

The Dursley’s depart.

VERNON DURSLEY (CONT’D)
Have a good term.

Vernon and Dudley start laughing at once. Petunia on the other hand, looks at the barrier between the two platforms for a few seconds then begins to laugh like her husband and son.

Harry is alone with a trolley carrying his trunk and his pet owl, Hedwig. Just when he begins to become worried, he hears a voice.

MOLLY WEASLEY
...packed with Muggles of course...

Harry miraculously sees a woman (MOLLY WEASLEY) and her 10-year-old daughter (GINNY WEASLEY) followed by four boys (RON WEASLEY, FRED WEASLEY, GEORGE WEASLEY and PERCY WEASLEY), each pushing a trunk like Harry and the eldest (Percy) also storing an owl. Ginny points to a solid brick wall.

GINNY WEASLEY
Platform nine and three-quarters! Mum, can't I go...

MOLLY WEASLEY
You're not old enough, Ginny, now be quiet. All right, Percy, you go first.

Percy comes forward, making his way to the solid brick wall between platforms 9 and 10. A group of tourists come passed blocking Harry’s view. When they leave, Percy has vanished.

MOLLY WEASLEY (CONT’D)
Fred, George, you next.

He and his twin, George, run towards the wall ... and disappear.

HARRY POTTER
Excuse me.

Molly turns to Harry.

MOLLY WEASLEY
Hello, dear. First time at Hogwarts? Ron's new, too.

She points to the last and youngest of her sons.

HARRY POTTER
Yes. The thing is - I don't know how to -

He points to the brick wall.

MOLLY WEASLEY
Not to worry. All you have to do is walk straight at the barrier between platforms nine and ten. Best do it at a bit of a run if you're nervous. Go on, go now before Ron.

HARRY POTTER
Er - okay.

Harry starts to push his trolley forward and gulps. Closer and closer the brick wall comes. Then...

INT. PLATFORM NINE AND THREE QUARTERS - LATE MORNING
(1/9/1991)

...he falls through, and he finds himself on a platform packed with people.
‘Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock’ reads a sign overhead. Behind him is an archway, the words ‘Platform Nine and Three-Quarters’ etched into it.
Taking his trunk, Harry passes owls, cats and wizards, trying find an empty compartment.

NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM
Gran, I've lost my toad again.

AUGUSTA LONGBOTTOM
Oh, Neville.

Harry finds an empty carriage and tries to lift through the carriage door. It drops onto his foot.

GEORGE WEASLEY
Want a hand?

Fred and George Weasley spot Harry’s trouble.

HARRY POTTER
Yes, please.

Together the three of them...

INT. HOGWARTS EXPRESS COMPARTMENT - LATE MORNING
(1/9/1991)

...get the trunk into Harry’s compartment. Subconsciously, Harry sweeps his hair of his forehead with his hand, revealing the scar on his forehead.

FRED WEASLEY
What’s that?

GEORGE WEASLEY
Blimey, are you?

FRED WEASLEY
He is. Aren’t you?

HARRY POTTER
What?

FRED WEASLEY / GEORGE WEASLEY
Harry Potter!

HARRY POTTER
Oh - Yes - I am.

They both stare at Harry.

MOLLY WEASLEY (O.S.)
Fred? George? Are you there?

FRED WEASLEY / GEORGE WEASLEY
Coming, Mum.

With one last look at Harry, the twins leave.

Harry positions himself so he can see what is happening down at the station.

MOLLY WEASLEY (O.S.)
Ron, you've got something on your nose.

INT. PLATFORM NINE AND THREE QUARTERS - LATE MORNING
(CONTINUOUS ACTION) (1/9/1991)

Ron jerks away as Molly rubs the end of his nose with her handkerchief.

MOLLY WEASLEY
Where's Percy?

FRED WEASLEY
He's coming now.

Percy strides forward, already wearing his Hogwarts robes, a red and gold badge with the letter ‘P’ pinned to it.

PERCY WEASLEY
Can't stay long, Mother. I'm up front with the prefects.
GEORGE WEASLEY

(Sarcastically)
Oh, are you a prefect, Percy? You should have said something.

FRED WEASLEY
Hang on, I think I remember him saying something. Once -

GEORGE WEASLEY
Or twice -

FRED WEASLEY
A minute -

GEORGE WEASLEY
All summer -

PERCY WEASLEY
Oh, shut up.

MOLLY WEASLEY
(To Percy)
Well, have a good term and send me an owl when you get there.

She kisses him on the cheek and he departs. She then turns on the twins.

MOLLY WEASLEY (CONT’D)
Now, you two. If I get one more owl telling me you've - you've blown up a toilet or -

FRED WEASLEY
Blown up a toilet? We've never blown up a toilet.

GEORGE WEASLEY
Great idea though, Mum.

MOLLY WEASLEY
It's not funny. And look after Ron.

FRED WEASLEY
Don't worry, ickle Ronniekins is safe with us.

RON WEASLEY
Shut up.

GEORGE WEASLEY
Hey Mum, guess what!

INT. HOGWARTS EXPRESS COMPARTMENT - LATE MORNING
(CONTINUOUS ACTION) (1/9/1991)

Harry leans back so they can’t notice him looking.

GEORGE WEASLEY (O.S.)
Guess who we just met on the train?

INT. PLATFORM NINE AND THREE QUARTERS - LATE MORNING
(CONTINUOUS ACTION) (1/9/1991)

FRED WEASLEY
You know that black-haired boy who was near us in the station? Know who he is?

MOLLY WEASLEY
Who?

FRED WEASLEY
Harry Potter!

Ginny suddenly becomes excited.

GINNY WEASLEY
Oh, Mum, can I go on the train and see him, Mum, oh please...

MOLLY WEASLEY
You've already seen him, Ginny, and the poor boy isn't something you goggle at in a zoo. Is he really, Fred? How do you know?

FRED WEASLEY
Asked him. Saw his scar. It's really there - like lightning.

MOLLY WEASLEY
Poor dear - no wonder he was alone.

FRED WEASLEY
Do you think he remembers what You-Know-Who looks like?

MOLLY WEASLEY
I forbid you to ask him, Fred. As though he needs reminding of that on his first day at school.

FRED WEASLEY
All right, keep your hair on.

A whistle sounds. Molly kisses each of them. Ginny starts to cry.

FRED WEASLEY (CONT’D)
Don't, Ginny, we'll send you loads of owls.

GEORGE WEASLEY
We'll send you a Hogwarts toilet seat.

MOLLY WEASLEY
George!

GEORGE WEASLEY
Only joking, Mum.
