Normally i don't do something like this, before any of my story's, or at all really.
However i thought it would hopefully, be for the best, if i do my best to explain a few things before hand.
Things like some of the lore/fantasy element of the story, and some character profile's.
Now just how the idea of Icarus's Tower was created, is very simple i had a dream, wake up and started writing it down, from what i could recall of the dream, thus creating this oddity before you now.
Icarus's Tower, the ancient gateway located in Scotland, in the very center of the forbidden forest, a round tower slightly similar in design to a Ottoman clock tower, only this tower is well out of the reach of father time's design.
There are no clocks in the design of this tower, only the stained glass windows in their place, ivy climbing up the full height of the tower, even hanging off of the wide flat platform of the tower top, the location of a rather odd gateway, a gateway that takes the form of a simple broken ivy covered stone archway
Noir, a being of shadows known as a Ekleipsis, Noir is thought to be male and is the last of his race, he protects Icarus's Tower from all, and he is the judge, whom decides the fate of those whom stand before the gateway, this act of Noir's includes, allowed entry though the gateway to Astral, or if someone forced though the gateway to Earth.
Earth, Harry's original world is going to be simply called Earth, and is a AU world, where the Potters live, harry has a older brother, who is two years older then him, a older brother whom may or may not be the bwl.
Astral, a world of wild forests, watchful mountains, white storm clouds, gray-blue normal clouds, the daytime sky is azura, the night sky is gray tinted black with azura-silver stars as well as two silver-white moons, sea's of crystal blue-green as clear as glass and filled with life, old style towns with people whom bare a even older history.
Astral is not simply just a home to three races, as well as many lower life forms on the food chain, they coexist mostly in peace after the last great war which ended with only three races instead of the original four, Astral has a will of her own as well as a brand of strange magic, she can be as warm as the sun or as ice cold as even the coolest red star.
Astral is a world born of the sweetest of dreams come true and the cruelest of nightmares made reality, and this is the place where eight year old Harry Potter ends up in chapter one.
The three Astral races are as follows.
Anthropos, the race of human's/muggle's.
Rheo, the race of magical's/wizards, named due to the magical energy always flowing though their beings, from the core of their souls.
Thirio, the race of beast's/spirit's, named due to the fact they each possess/born with soul's that give them two different forms, the first being a humanoid-animal form, and the last being a animal/spirit/beast form.
