    Summary

    About a year after the traumatic deaths of their respective parental figures at the hands of Professor Quirrell, Harry and Hermione take their first steps toward exploring the possibility of magic existing elsewhere in the galaxy. Escorted by the VFP Slow and Steady are Criminally Overrated and a renowned Culture Archaeologist they visit a massive temple nestled deep in the dense forests of an ancient jungle world, whose previous inhabitants are thought to have sublimed.

    As they explore the immense ruins left behind they begin to unravel the mystery of the world's missing civilization and its connection to the elusive force that all witches and wizards are able to channel.

    An exploration of the 'The Culture finds Harry before the Dursleys do' premise established in an old unfinished crossover fic that I will not name.
