My kids and I decided to try to think of the dumbest possible ending to the Harry Potter series. Although there are many possibilities, here's our favorite so far:
Right at the peak of Harry's climactic showdown with Voldemort, he wakes up in his plush bedroom with the Dursleys and realizes that - it was all a dream! Even the Dursleys being mean to him!
"Oh, Aunt Petunia, I've had the strangest dream!" And he tried to tell her about it, but the words failed, although he managed to express how sad a lot of it had been, and how mean his loving family.
"Well, it's all over now, Harrykins," said his beaming aunt, smothering him with kisses. "Would you like some extra porridge? Dudley insisted on leaving it for you."
Fade to black.
