Fanfic: Ruskbytes Culture Shock

Culture Shock by Ruskbyte is an unfinished The Culture/Harry Potter crossover fanfic.

Diziet Sma, Special Circumstances agent, and her drone Skaffen-Amtiskaw arrive on Earth in search of the human that somehow managed to access both layers of the Grid, a search that takes them to the doorstep of Number Four Privet Drive.

Fast forward ten years. It is time for Harry to return to Hogwarts, a journey he is not eager to go on...

Dead Fic as of 2008.

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Berserk Button: Harry goes berserk with rage when he discovers that the Sorting Hat was reading his mind, since mental privacy is just about the only thing the Culture holds sacred.
  • Beware the Honest Ones: McGonagall's bluntness is described as harder for Sma to deflect than Dumbledore's playing of games.
  • Heroic BSOD: Harry after the troll is destroyed with effectors, causing Ludicrous Gibs.
  • Not a Game:
    Sorting Hat: This is not some silly little game, Potter;
  • Outside-Context Villain: Despite the Culture's desire to dismiss Wizarding Britain as primitives, the wizards do things with magic that even their incredible grasp of science has no explanation for.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!:
    Sorting Hat: I have been here for a thousand years and have Sorted every single student to ever attend this school. Every. Single. Student.
  • Shut Up, Kirk!:
    Sorting Hat: Do not presume to laud your own moral superiority over me, Potter, the Hat warned.
