How Harry Potter Could Have (Should Have?) Ended


As much as I loved the Harry Potter series, the ending always felt a bit too…neat to me. Spoiler alert (but come on, read them already, or at least see the movies), the good guys win, only minor characters die, and everyone grows up and has little kids named after their parent’s heroes.

It works within the context of the story, and I never thought Harry should die in the end, but there needed to be just a bit more to it, I thought. Perhaps this is that something. A Harry Potter uber-fan (via io9)came up with this alternate ending that’s based on the central prophecy of the books. Between Harry Potter and Voldemort, neither can live while the other survives. What if that was taken a step further? What if Harry killing Voldemort had an…unintended side effect?

See the full image that explains everything below. It’s a bit too trippy for the existing series, but it’s a cool thought:
