[Harry and the gang are in Ron’s bedroom. Harry is staring out the window meaningfully with his back towards Ron and Hermione.]
Harry:(emotionally) There’s something I haven’t (s) told you guys yet.
Ron:(puts hand on Harry’s shoulder) You can tell us anything.
[Harry turns around and gazes intently at Ron. Silence.]
Hermione:So, what is (s) it?
Harry:On Sunday, my… scar hurt. (s) Again.
[Ron faints in shock. Hermione gasps. Dramatic music.]
Hermione:Harry, this is (s)bad. You need to go tell someone-
Harry:(s) I’ve told Sirius.
Hermione:But he can’t really-
Ron:(getting up from the floor) Good, now that’s all sorted let’s play Quidditch.
Hermione:Ron, (s) this is serious.
Harry:(brightening up) Yeah, that sounds like a great idea!
[Harry and Ron go galloping away.]
[Hermione pouts whilst stroking Crookshanks looking out the window.]
[Draco is sitting in his room sulkily. There is a knock at the door and he looks up.]
Mr Malfoy:(otherside of door) Can I come in, Draco?
[Mr Malfoy comes into the room and looks around in disdain.]
Mr Malfoy:Open a window, it smells in here.
Draco:(s) … no. YOU ALWAYS JUDGE ME.
[Draco throws a pillow at Mr Malfoy.]
Mr Malfoy:(angrily) As punishment, no ice cream tonight.
[Mr Malfoy stalks out of the room. Draco falls to the floor.]
Draco:(rips off shirt) NO!
[Harry and Ron are in their room. On the bed is two dresses, one of a floral print and one green.]
Harry:What… arethose? (Harry points to the dresses).
Ron:I… I don’t know. (s) But, they’re…
Harry and Ron:(together) FABULOUS.
[Glitter explodes from the ceiling. Harry and Ron pick up a dress each and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” starts playing. Cue montage of Harry and Ron jumping up and down on beds, hitting each other with pillows, experimenting with make-up etc. Hermione walks in.)
Hermione:Are those dresses?
[Suddenly the dresses are off of Harry and Ron and they are wearing the clothes they were wearing previously.]
[Mr Malfoy is outside a locked bathroom. Draco is inside, and heavy metal music can be heard.]
Mr Malfoy:(knocking on the door) Draco? DRACO? You better come out now, you’re going to miss the-
[The door swings open. There is Draco, with black hair. The music continues to play.]
Draco:Hang on, I need to-
Mr Malfoy:(s) WHAT IS THAT?
Draco:Uh, (sassy s) Cradle of Filth? Don’t you know anything?
Mr Malfoy:(faints) Oh!
Draco:(stares down at father) Are we going to get going or what?
Mr Malfoy:(from floor) We’re going to buy you a wig. No way are you attending the Triwizard Tournament looking like (s) that.
Draco: (eyes shining and s) Triwizard Tournament?
[At the Hogwarts Express. The Weasleys, Harry and Ron are on Platform 9 ¾.]
Molly:Are all of you ready?
Ron:(tired) YES MUM OH MY GOD DO YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A BUZZKILL MERLIN.
Arthur:I think something (s) interesting is going to happen this year.
Percy:I know what he means. I can tell you guys because I realise that you’re going to find out soon anyway and there really is no point in holding back-
Bill:(puts hand on Percy’s face and pushes him away) Stop teasing them, you show off. (s) I know what it is as well.
Molly:(s) So do I.
Charlie:(s) And me.
[Arthur, Molly, Bill and Charlie stare at the children intently. There is silence for a few moments.]
Harry:Well, frankly, I don’t care. (carefree s) What else is going to happen to me? I’m already pretty freaking special as is.
Harry:(rattles cage) Shut UP, Hedwig.
Hermione:Oh dear, (s) here comes the antagonist. Figures of authority VANISH!
[They do. Draco, wearing a horrid wig, and the gang come into the shot.]
Draco:… and that’s why I went with dark horse rather than the night demon colour- Potter!
Harry:Nice wig, (s) WIGfoy.
Ron:(snickers) Good one.
Crabbe:(clutches Draco’s arm and whispers in arm) Draco, don’t worry about him.
Draco:NO. (Pulls off Crabbe’s hand.) Potter, we have been meaning to dance this dance since we first met.
[Draco steps forward, towards Harry. Harry does the same. They are face-to-face, glaring at each other. Their respective two best friends hover at their elbows, looking worried.]
Draco:(with venom) Potter.
Harry:(same tone) Draco.
Draco:First name terms, are we?
Harry:I think we’ve known each other (s) long enough.
Draco:Harry, (leans into ear and whispers) I know something you don’t.
Draco:We’re going to have some visitors at the school.
Harry:Your breath smells nice.
[Draco snaps his fingers and spins sharply around. Crabbe and Goyle each glare at all three of the other gang in turn before turning away and running to catch up with Draco.]
Hermione:I (s) wonder what he meant-
Harry:I HAVE NEVER WANTED TO KNOW SOMETHING SO BAD IN MY LIFE. RON (s to Ron and points) LET’S FIND YOUR FAMILY THEY HAVE BEEN SAYING THINGS.
Ron:I think you need a (s) breather.
Harry:I’M FINE THANK YOU WHAT DO YOU MEAN.
Ron:You’re talking in (s) capitals.
Ron:Hermione, (s) he’s getting too excited.
Hermione:(s) Emergency chloroform?
Harry:NO I HAVE TO BE ONE STEP AHEAD OF MALFOY GOD HE WOULD LOOK GOOD WITH BLACK HAIR I WONDER IF-
[Ron covers Harry’s mouth and nose with a rag. Harry sinks to the floor. Hermione and Ron each take an arm and start dragging him to the train. Dramatic music.]
[Draco and the gang are in their cabin-thing. Draco is staring out the window and Crabbe and Goyle are watching him apprehensively.]
Goyle:Are you (s) alright?
Draco:(downward s) Fine.
Crabbe:What was all that?
Draco:There is going to be a (s) Triwizard Tournament this year.
[Crabbe and Goyle gasp. Dramatic music.]
