    Summary

    About a year after the traumatic deaths of their parents 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/shame, but without the uncomfortable self-inserted sexual mores of that piece's author. I'm not going to pretend that the Culture isn't different, this is just not a story where I intend to explore the differences, or eroticism of any kind.

    Summary

    Before the Death Star can begin its campaign of terror against the Rebel Alliance, the attention of the Empire is diverted to the Unknown Regions, where Imperial forces have recently made contact with an irritatingly governed high-tech civilization calling itself the Culture. In response to the Culture's rebuffs of Imperial demands, the dreaded Death Star has been sent to display the Emperor's disapproval and bring this 'Culture' to its knees.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Contact checks back up on Earth and finds the course of history thrown wildly off the beaten path. Sma is irritated.

    Summary

    The LCU Knock A Door Run is an Eccentric. In the near future, it plans to leave the Culture forever. For now, it simply wants to say farewell to some of its oldest friends. With it is Yaska Kalvene, as much an Eccentric as the ship on which she lives. Forever tired of the way things are, she plans to join the ship on its new journey, and hopefully find something that finally catches her interest.

    Hrindre Tyu-Vrer hasn't yet learnt how to live again. Within the virtual afterlife of the GSV I Liked It Better This Way Anyway, they work for the Peace Faction's Not Quite Contact department, engaging in diplomatic relations with The Talar, a Level 7 civilisation mentored by The Culture. Yet, as with all things, one cannot simply forget the past. Soon they'll have to come face to face with the trauma that put them on the GSV in the first place.

    M'Gale Yvrensk has committed terrible crimes. Itlen-Orretaw, her slap drone, has committed even worse. Taken in by the Hub of Lalyte Orbital, they still haven't truly made peace with their sins. But when the ship where she started her career comes knocking, M'Gale will be forced to come to terms with what she's done.
