Hey turtles! How's life? I'm glad to hear that you guys loved my story and once again, thanks for reading reviewing, just everything! Thanks!
So, this is a bunch of facts, which I like to call fun facts. These are all the changes I made to the story that were supposed to happen, but didn't because I changed my mind on the spot. All of these happened while I was writing the chapters, seriously!
Okay, here goes:
#1)Obviously, this was supposed to be a one-shot.
#2)Originally, there were only going to be ten chapters, meaning the story would have ended at when the park re-opened.
#3)I was going to have Blue and the other raptors live with Alice instead of bringing in Dom and Josiah.
#4)Rexy and Alice were actually supposed to have a small fight the first time they met, and I mean that it was supposed to be bloody.
#5)There wasn't going to be a central villain of this story. It would have had multiple villain arcs, meaning that the story could have gone on for a longer time, but, I decided on giving the story a central villain, aka, Ortiz.
#6)Originally, Gabriel Ortiz was actually going to be Gabrielle Ortiz. (I a huge fan of super evil, badass villains being women.)
#7)Alice's name was going to be Addilyn, but most of you know that already.
#8)Felix and Silas weren't going to be living in the same paddock, but I decided to put them together since they have similarities, especially in looks!
#9)I was actually going to have the Spinosaurus be a bit of an antagonist, but I didn't put much into Sorna.
#10)I was actually going to shift the scene to Sorna to show more about James, but then decided not to due to other reasons.
#11)I considered having Blue and the girls find mates within Silver's pack.
#12)I wanted to make Charlie survive from the beginning, but I needed a tense scene between Owen and Alice.
#13)Dom was actually going to die early of a sickness, but you guys loved him so much, that I couldn't do that. I also loved the little guy.
#14)Josiah was actually going to always be grumpy and silent around Alice and Dom, but then I thought of a tragic love story ending kind of thing, and most of you fell for it. I'm sorry, but HA!
#15)Most of the OCs were never going to be put into the mix, but then I just thought of Owen's family and some of you gave me some characters, who are awesome!
#16)Cat girl, originally, I actually was going to kill Alexis. I'm sorry!
#17)Throughout thinking about plenty of plot twists, Lowery being a bad guy was actually one of them.
#18)Now, bear with me on this one. I had mentioned that Owen had a relationship with another guy while in the Navy, something I didn't really go into and don't plan on going into because, well, not everybody enjoys it, not that I would have put in certain things. Anyway, Owen's ex-boyfriend was actually going to be a sub-villain.
#19)Did you know, that I kind of hinted at who Owen's boyfriend was? (Ten points and a special shoutout to whoever figures it out! The answer is at the bottom, but try to figure it out before getting to the end! ;)
#20)This story was roughly inspired by SkullsandDuggery's "It's not the Raptor DNA."
#21)I was originally going to leave Zara dead.
#22)I was going to have Styler survive throughout the whole story and develop a friendship with Ian, the teens, and Lowery.
#23)Styler was actually going to end up betraying and killing Ortiz in the end.
#24)I was originally going to have Ian tackle down Chris Pratt and then have him and Owen meet.
#25)I contemplated over Alexis and Casey sharing a kiss, just for a moment, when Alexis finally met Taylor.
#26)Due to crossover limitations, I was going to have a lot of character cameos in certain chapters.
#27)Dom's little adventure throughout the park, was actually going to be throughout the island and expand over a few chapters, with Alice reaching the utmost level of panic.
#28)I originally wanted Alice to trust Owen at the very end of the story, after Ortiz was killed.
#29)Owen was supposed to get stabbed by Zara and end up in the hospital for a few chapters.
#30)I was originally going to kill Barry, Vivian, Alexis, Olivia, Sarah, Ryan, Sasha, and even Lowery!
#31)Dr. Grant was supposed to come in around chapter 23.
#32)Finally, this story was going to be called The Scarlet Heart. But the oxymoron title stuck way more!
