The School of Magi is the second short story of the New World Series. The School of Magi chronicles the events of Hogwarts a Magi school based on the Harry Potter series with a more adult theme, and events. The school of Magi opens up another front in the New World, and leads the story down a more northern experiance then the usual stories of southern Europe, and Nehekhara.
The School of Magi would be a take off the oringinal Hogwarts story, but the differences were the far more brutal nature of the New World series led to a far more brutal, and sexualized region that many similar things happened but the violence and actions were changed quite a lot. The invasion of The Empire would also be a huge part of the story, and this would lead several characters down a very dark path including Harry and his forces summoning thousands of elementals and then massacring thousands of Empire troops, and then following this Snape would conjure a mana bomb that would absolutely destroy an entire city leaving the situation between the two kingdoms very much in the air. Following that great conflict Hogwarts would become the enemy of the Empire of Tevinter after it fell to the evil Lord Voldermorte, and they were thus squarely aligned with the Kingdom of Lucerne in the now growing Lucernian-Emperian conflict.
The School of Magi is told from the POV of five main characters in the form of Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Ron Weezly, and Neville Longbottom. Each of these characters will often discuss events that the other POV character has already discussed but from the angle of what they saw when it happened.
|Harry Potter||1, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24|
|Hermione Granger||3, 5, 10, 13|
|Ron Weezly||7, 11, 17, 21, 25|
|Draco Malfoy||2, 14, 18, 22, 26|
|Neville Longbottom||6, 9, 15, 19, 23, 27|

"Your mother looked into my eyes Harry when she died. I saw the fear as I tortured her. I saw the fear as her eyes saw everyone she loved dying around her. It might have been the screaming of your cousin Walburga that was forcing the tears from your mother though. What we did to her even I shuddered for a moment at."
"I know things you don't know, Tom Malfoy. I know lots of important things that you don't. Want to hear some, before you make another big mistake?"
"Is it love again? Dumbledore's favorite solution, love, which he claimed conquered death?"
"You look at it as a tool, and thats why it is has never found you."
"Love is a tool Potter. Just because you fail to see it that way means little. Your mother had love. Your father. All the members of your family that I murdered had love. Did that protect them?"
"Love alone does not protect you."
"So what will stop you dying now when I strike?"
"You are such a sad creature Tom. You fail to see that having murdered my family...having killed innocents. That doesn't make you powerful."
"Then you must believe that you have magic that I do not, or else a weapon more powerful than mine?"
"I believe both."
"What is this weapon?"
"You have your victory Potter."
"You are not leaving here Tom."
"Strike me down then." He stared at me as more and more of the defenders swarmed to us and with only one Deatheater still by his side it was clear that it was done. "You can't do it." He smiled the same cruel smile he always did, and then flicked his finger disappearing into thin air. I felt the whip of his form flowing through the world as he teleported away. I could feel it and I could stop it from happening, but I knew he was right. If I pulled him back I would be forced to make a choice I wasn't ready too.
