Jurassic World: Die Hardis a very thrilling combination of Jurassic Park and absolute chaos. The atmosphere of a military-like setting introduced into Jurassic Park isnt all too new; but you redefinited it with this epic thrilling adventure that takes elements from Tom Clancy and Dinosaurs.
What changes would you make with the chapters, characters, and events, to make them more to your liking?
I would change the overall direction of the story; pointing it more towards the virus plot, and giving the original main character more attention.
Don't get me wrong about this one; but I would also like more attention to detail in some of the chapters, it gets a little bit inconsistant.
Other than that, the original stories and characters presented by our contributers are awesome, and the chapters written were amazing.
Well, the dinosaurs of Isla Graciosa are different now. First, there are dinosaurs that were, and were not, on Isla Nublar - Tyrannosaurus, Apatosaurus, Euoplocephalus, Dimorphodon, and Pachycephalosaurus. The dinosaurs previously mentioned are from the canon, but there are also others that are from the novels or other material in the saga - Dryosaurus, Cearadactylus, Deinonychus, Lourinhanosaurus, Maiasaura, Hadrosaurus, Procompsognathus, Concavenator, and Lexovisaurus, and Ojoceratops.
This together gives a total of fifteen species of dinosaurs spread over three sections. The first is for flying reptiles, being an aviary similar to one located on Isla Nublar. The next section is for the island's carnivores, which in turn has three mini-sections. One of them belongs to a Tyrannosaurus family. Another belongs to the Concavenator and Lourinhanosaurus. Deinonychus has a section that is still restricted. For herbivores, there are two sections. In the first, there are the Apatosaurus, Maiasaura, and Hadrosaurus. For the second, there are the Euoplocephalus, Lexovisaurus, Ojoceratops, and Pachycephalosaurus.
Procompsognathus are everywhere, while Dryosaurus was initially in the Tyrannosaurus mini-section, serving as food and attraction; Later this would be changed with the intention that Dryosaurus be part of an attraction with the other herbivores. Furthermore, it is suggested that Deinonychus have an appearance similar to the illustration of the Jurassic Park Institute. This dinosaur covers the Velociraptor niche, explaining that they are just as dangerous as the ones mentioned above. Deinonychus will have a greater importance in the plot due to the disease. In addition, in the investigation, it will be discovered that InGen scientists have been experimenting with the DNA of this dinosaur, making it an uncontrollable beast.
That's all planned for the story regarding dinosaurs. What do you think about this? Do you want to know what I will do with the characters?
Well, Phil Gardner is still the main protagonist, and of course, he will have much more prominence than in the current story. Although I would like to know what other role you would give him (some other role than being part of the Security Division), his participation is very similar to Owen Grady in the new trilogy.
However, he is not the only important character in the story. Adia Costa is the Head of Operations of the Park throughout history, so her participation is truly relevant. As well as her, Zal Slarker, the Head of Paleoveterinary, and the two geneticists, Keane Cederlof and Treslyn Quilley. As it could not be missing in this story, we have an antagonist, Marilia Ribeiro, a key member of an organization that will wreak havoc in the park, and also being the Head of Security who worked under the identity of Kaija Lambelho.
Other characters that are present in the story are Paulino Guerrero and Jorge Moore (two members of the Security Division), Maryn Daris (a game warden), Cacia Costa (secretary and sister of Adia), Melissa Hues and Harrison Gray (two members of Hospitalization Division), Beth McBride (the replacement for Nedris after a butterfly effect in the first movie), Vance Wright (a dinosaur researcher), Michelle Connolly (née Tunney) and Mike Connolly (a couple who have a small accident in the park), Raymond Arnold (Head of Engineering in the original package), and Peter Ludlow (CEO of InGen after Hammond's death).
Since we are close to the grand finale of Jurassic Park: Azores, I couldn't help asking what your initial idea for this story was. First of all, let me give you a summary of all the information I have when Jurassic Park: Azores was titled as Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar;
As I mentioned before, originally, the story would be titled as Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar, and it would be about an alternate universe where Jurassic Park actually opened.
According to this thread, several ideas you had were that you would not include animals before the Mezosoic era due to historical/scientific reasons.
You mentioned that there would be no hybrids in story, especially because you wanted to be faithful to the original trilogy.
Dinosaurs would have babies. This is due to the frog's DNA, but you didn't make it clear if this was intentional or something accidental.
This is seen in the final version, but I still mention it: incidents in the story. Now what kind of incidents?
Unlike the final version, this story would be located in 1996, not in 1999. It seems that you wanted to include characters from movies like Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm, although characters from the new trilogy were unlikely to appear. My question is, what participation would they have in this first version?
You said that other Costa Rican islands would appear like Isla Sorna (it was still the island where the dinosaurs were cloned, although you mentioned that they were "testing facilities"), presumably other islands of Muertes Archipelago, an island of Azores (I don't know if you meant Graciosa Island, to Corvo Island, or another different island) and another Asian island. In addition to this, you mentioned that "they would have parks there", which makes me understand that the main focus of the story would not only be on Isla Nublar, but also in other parks (or they may be mentions).
I also found that when you changed the page from Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar to Jurassic Park: Azores, you put in the summary: "Better fit for story". This makes me understand that you had a previous version for the original story, and that after thinking about it, you decided to put the focus on Graciosa Island.
I hope you can answer and give me a detailed answer, as well as answer some questions I would like to ask you ;D
PS: Incidentally, you may also want to talk about YOUR original vision for Jurassic Park: Azores when it was already titled like that.
Good evening! Thanks for asking these questions and giving out some of your thoughts!
To answer your questions;
Q; "Dinosaurs would have babies. This is due to the frog's DNA, but you didn't make it clear if this was intentional or something accidental."
A; This would be accidental, just like the original Jurassic Park story.
Q; "This is seen in the final version, but I still mention it: incidents in the story. Now what kind of incidents?"
A; I didn't have a rough idea of it, but It would include a virus/malware infecting one of the parks systems, and spreading to the rest, causing the systems to go offline, in turn, disabling the main park perimeter fences, allowing the dinosaurs to escape, but I thought this idea was kind of over-the-top, and scrapped it.
Q; "Unlike the final version, this story would be located in 1996, not in 1999. It seems that you wanted to include characters from movies like Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm, although characters from the new trilogy were unlikely to appear. My question is, what participation would they have in this first version?"
A; They would just be visiting one of the parks they endorsed at the time of the incident, I didn't really think this idea through very well before I decided to change the whole course of the story.
Q; "You said that other Costa Rican islands would appear like Isla Sorna (it was still the island where the dinosaurs were cloned, although you mentioned that they were "testing facilities"), presumably other islands of Muertes Archipelago, an island of Azores (I don't know if you meant Graciosa Island, to Corvo Island, or another different island) and another Asian island. In addition to this, you mentioned that "they would have parks there", which makes me understand that the main focus of the story would not only be on Isla Nublar, but also in other parks (or they may be mentions)."
A; At the time I was planning to have a huge story with hundreds of pages for each island, like 5-6 chapters focused on one of three islands, (Terceira of Azores for the Europe part, Nublar of Muertes for the Costa Rican part, and Babeldaob of the Caroline Islands for the Asian part.)
"I also found that when you changed the page from Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar to Jurassic Park: Azores, you put in the summary: "Better fit for story". This makes me understand that you had a previous version for the original story, and that after thinking about it, you decided to put the focus on Graciosa Island."
I understand that this really isn't a question but I am going to comment on it anyway, it also seems that you are interested in the original story I had planned, so I am going to give some details.
I basically thought the original story was too big, had many flaws, and I would never get it finished, It also seemed very complex.
It would have four sections, three focused on each of the islands, which would be 5-6 chapters long, the fourth focused on the mainland, which would be about 3 chapters long, after the incidents occour on the island, the dinosaurs would somehow find a way to get to the mainland, which I hadn't thought of at the time.
The first three parts would focus on the wonders of each island, the attractions, the dinosaurs, and the resort aspect.
Nublar was going to be the last and the longest of these parts, it would focus on the characters of the first Jurassic Park film, as they were taking a vacation at the Nublar Resort, and I still didn't have any idea on how the dinosaurs would find a way to get to the mainland without completely ripping off Fallen Kingdom or/and The Lost World.
I hope these answers were informational, and you got what you needed, have a great evening!
Q; Where did the idea of being a collaborative fanfic come from? Why not a "yourself" story as in the original idea?
A; It just popped into my mind, after reading your forum post about an experimental fanfic, I thought I would try one myself, and utilizing the community would be the best idea to make a fanfic that everyone would enjoy.
Q; Why did you start with Jurassic Park: Europe and not with another park elsewhere (e.g. Jurassic Park: Japan)?
A; Jurassic Park: Japan was mainly an Idea visited by the novel, where as Jurassic Park: Europe was an Idea visited by both novel and movie, and I thought it would fit better because we had an Idea of where it would be, where as Jurassic Park: Japan was just described as "somewhere near guam".
Q; What would you have done differently so that Jurassic Park: Azores is more to your liking? (that is, if all the production and writing of chapters were ONLY yours).
A; Don't get me wrong, all of the community made chapters are very awesome, and well written. But I didn't think it was a good idea to just throw the Rapter Plot that I had in the first chapter out the window, and leave the original main character; "Phil Gardner" behind, I would have focused on that plot and expanded the story on that, where a disease would spread across the park, causing the dinosaurs (Raptors would be the main focus) to cannibalize.
I hope you got what you asked for! Have a good day!
Of course there will be creatures after the Mesozoic era, however, animals before the Mesozoic era will probably not be an addition to the park, because DNA before more than 250 million years is more difficult to extract and find.
If you have more questions, you can ask them freely.
PS: In case you really think this is going to be real (no offense), it isn't.
Don't worry, I know it's not real... I have a great imagination!
Just some last questions.
Can there be JWA and JWTG hybrids?
Will there be male and female animals having babies? (I hope Blue has a baby in JW3.
Let there be some incidents such as animal riots (never let there be death). I bet this story can be for people of all ages. Including children. Is that possible with you?
I hope Owen Grady and other JW characters can be welcome. I think that extinct animals can be domesticated and trained like Good Zoo animals.
If you are looking for a way to recover paleozoic plants and animals, try to get InGen to contact Cambrian Genomics (it is a true synthetic biological company in San Francisco that shines in dark plants through 3D DNA printing)
If you can welcome Isla Sorna and the other islands to have attractions and facilities, do so.
You don't have to have all this, I just hope I can give you ideas and inspiration for your story.
I wait for you by cutting the red ribbon with golden scissors at the opening of Jurassic Park!
There will be no hybrids, I want to keep this story atleast a little lore friendly to the original trilogy.
Thanks to the african frog DNA in the dinosaurs, the dinosaurs will be able to change genders, so yes, there will be baby dinosaurs.
There will be an incident log.
This timeline is set in 1996, no JW world characters will be present, unfortunately. But there will be JP characters like Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm.
Thanks for letting me know about the ICCG (InGen Contact Cambrian Genomics), I will find a way to include them into the story.
Isla sorna will be a testing facility, that also goes for the other islands off the coast of costa rica (not including nublar), but there will be islands in european seas and asian seas that will have parks.
Thank you for the questions, it will still be a little bit before i begin writing the story, but asking questions and giving suggestions makes it take less time and easier to make.
ok i checked your edit, it was the bottom of the page i see. i changed that a while ago on accident but never thought to fix it, well thanks for doing the work yourself and fixing it. would've done it myself but i had a lot of real life things to do so i didn't think to fix it. thanks.
Well, not interested in these three. They don’t fit my taste of the logo I would want for my story.
Here’s how I would like it to be;
There should be a “Jurassic World II” in the main box, with two T. rex scratch marks next to the “World” (similar to the three Spinosaurus scratch marks next to the “Park” in the Jurassic Park III logo). Beneath the “Jurassic World II” should be “Rebuilding Jurassic World”, much like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s logo where “Fallen Kingdom” was beneath “Jurassic World”. Also, instead of the color being light blue, I want it to be a darkish grey with a tint of glass.
Anyways, these three logos look like you spent a lot of dedicated time on them. Impressive work, BTW.
It has to be perfectly symmetrical. Like the main title above and the rest of the text down below. Maybe you have to reduce the two T. rex scratch marks to the height of the main "Jurassic World" text, above "Rebuilding Jurassic World".
Other than that, this looks epic and is almost exactly to how I want my title to be. Just the sizing and spacing edits to make the two scratch marks smaller but as tall as the "Jurassic World" next to it, and place "Rebuilding Jurassic World" completely horizontal in one line and I am set.
The second is called Jurassic World: Red Alert. It's about Owen, Claire and her DPG people try to save the dinosaurs in that volcanic eruption, only to find themselves targeted for murder by mercenaries, led by former SAS commando Trevor Thomas (Idris Elba) with Wheatley as his right-hand man, hired by Mills and discover an conspiracy involving dinosaurs being sold to the black market and fight to stop it while battle for survival against the ruthless mercenaries.
The third one what I called Jurassic World: Jurassic War (as of now since it's not an official title at this time). The plot of it is kept under wraps at this time.
