<Open scene in Hogwarts. Her raven lands near Maddy, who unfastens a letter from its leg, and opens it. Cue voice over in voice of Uncle Perry. Camera pans, following Madeline>

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

< Shift over to Eibhlin>

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,

<pan to Viridian>

Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

<shift to Tony, working with Professor Black. Tony pauses to smile, wistfully, then returns to his work>

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

<focus past Tony onto Black>

If you can bear to hear the truth youve spoken

<and dissolve onto Flint>

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

<Shift past him, to Dumbledore>

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build em up with worn-out tools:

<Fly the camera out of the window, towards an approaching Rena, with Warrant>

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

<she passes a boy, who looks up, and is Tom Riddle>

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: Hold on!

<Disolve to Cassius in a wizarding location>

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

<Also in the same wizarding location is Slughorn>

Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,

<Dissolve from them into the darkness of Diagon Alley, and onto the thin smile of Cruentus>

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;

<And fly back, North, to the gates of Hogwarts, with Rena approaching them>

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything thats in it,
And - which is more - youll be a Man, my son!

<Rena knocks, and the knocks echo. Cut to black. Theme music. 'To be continued…' in white on the black, then fade out. Pause. Credits.>
