Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from (Recent Donor)nerfherder
Just the thought of Spike squealing like a little girl as he runs away from the pack... It's a kind of magic!

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from Pointer
"What’s the worst that could happen?"

He knows better than that!

"...I shall have him arrested for complacency in murder,”


Spell check doesn't always cut it.

Pet velociraptors?

I wonder what leash laws apply?

Great story.

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from BurningLight
Just think Lex meets Dawn. Cat fight no not that tame... Raptor fight!

Can see Buffy moaning to Giles that all the vamps are hiding from a new hunter in HER town
Comments from author:
Yeah, the Slayer does come off as frighteningly territorial. As far as Lex and Dawn meeting up, well who can say?

Genius! I can't believe I didn't find this earlier.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it... At this rate I'll be working on this series when I should be finishing up my other fics. Heh, frustrating Muse, she just can't leave well enough alone.

This was hilarious!! I would love to see a sequel down the road. Imagine the shenanigans Xander and his pack of tame Raptors could get up to in Sunnydale.
Comments from author:
True, but who said anything about having Tame Raptors? LOL Glad you liked it, check out my ficlet Positively Prehistoric for a hint of things to come.

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from NeverTooOld
Okay, this was pretty cool. At first I wasn't sure about a Buffy/Jurassic Park Crossover, but it worked out better than I thought. The rewrite of their time in the park was well done, Xander had little actual effect until Catherine was able to get him to her brother. From that point the changes were significant and well done. When she amplified his Primal aspect to dominate the juvie raptors, I can just imagine the thoughts running thru the adults mind: 'I raise this kids, I feed them, I take care of them... I just can't get no respect'.

The image of Xander patrolling with a pack of velociraptors through the alleys and graveyards of Sunnydale is terrifying... for demons and vamps. Hopefully Buffy and Willow are accepted as a part of his pack.

The humor potential of Lex, a 12 year old girl being Xander's soul mate is huge. You could write a bunch of one-shots based on that alone.

Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked it. The effects of Xander and a pack of Raptors in Sunnydale would be fun to envision, alas except maybe for a few references events in Sunnydale are going to be avoided by me for this potential series. I'm already re-writing season two twice now in two other crossovers and re-writing various other events in even more crossovers. I'm kind of a little wary of trying to do that too often, so I figured it'd be safe to have Xander interact with his newfound friends and maybe visit Amy, Catherine and Robert on occassion.

Also, considering the Raptor Adults aren't the source of the eggs I kind of find it hard to envision that kind of reaction from her.

One-shots surrounding the whole soule mate thing? Hmmmm I can't for the life of me think of much that could done to be honest. Outside of a few more awkward moments telling Cordy that they can't get back together now because he has another girl in his life, and possibly a reaction from Angelus concerning the new bit of information. LOL Thank you for your review and I am pleased you were entertained by my fic. :D

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
I like it! I don't agree with giving up the fight as that would lead to demons killing them in their sleep, but Xander getting a decent primal empowerment and a pack would make things safer. I wonder what the effect would be on a soul mate when that happens with them so close together.
Comments from author:
Hmmm, now that's a good question. I wonder. No, no, no bad muse, bad first we finish off other story then you get your treat. Er, glad you liked this one, and thank you for the review. :D

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from angelkitty
ok i was howling with laughter all throu this, and the end is great, you should write a little short of when the Pets meet Dusty i am sorry i mean angel(snicker), and i really cant wait to see what else your mind comes up with in this moive verse, i hope that you will write more of it....rereads ending HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Comments from author:
I was hoping it would be a funny one. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the review. You know since I dig Jurassic Park so much a sequel might not be so long to cook up... Er, no, bad muse I said later. I promise ok. Er, sorry about that she's really persistent, worse than Lex and her crush on Xander some times. LOL Anyway, here's to Angel and the meeting of a lifetime... Wonder if Xander might let him live long enough to share his experience with the T-Rex, literally. :D

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from TheMaskedLurker

Premise is contrived,
But I liked it nonetheless.
Was entertaining.

-[ The start of the fic was kinda "bleh", but I slogged my way through it. I'm glad I did. Sure, it was a re-hash of the movie, but the mystery of how Xander got brought along kept me going. And the prodding at the illogical things that happened in the movie helped, too.

Going to work on the other movies as well? ]-
Comments from author:
Contrived? You mean a lot of other people have done something similar to force a crossover before? Oh well, I kind of figured it might come across as that.

There were illogical things in Jurassic Park? Hmmm I must have missed some of them or something, perhaps you could point me to a site or something referencing them. I'm curious to know which ones I actually touched upon without really meaning to. I'm not sure about The Lost World, if Xander goes with Doctor Grant to Isla Sorna it would be better if he hadn't been there before with Malcolm and his team. Jurassic Park III will definately get a similar treatment, only there might not be the same cast of survivors as there was originally in the end of that movie. I mean Paul and Amanda Kirby have to be the most inept survivors from any of the Jurassic Park movies EVER, you'd think the ex-husband might have got taken out at least and just how the heck did Bill survive all the way down river with a swimming Spinosaurus running around? Not to mention rapids that could have slammed him around enough to break his neck against the rocks. Then again I might not change too much, although I am ditching that stupid satellite phone gag, I mean comedy reasons aside how the hell can you hear a satellite phone ringing from the inside of a Spinosaurus' stomach?

Er, I shouldn't be so harsh I really liked Jurassic Park III and wouldn't mind seeing JP IV if they still go through with it despite Crichton's death. Hey it'd give me another film to play around with for Xander. :D Thank you for the review and despite the slow start I am pleased you seem to have found enjoyment out of it despite certain apparent reservations.

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from war
Xander nodded along with what she was saying and he began to get visions of Angelus screaming out in actual terror, the demon being torn apart by Velociraptors. He wondered if a vampire turned to dust in pieces if the heart was still intact. It was going to be an interesting question to discover the answer to.

that would be a sight to see. raptors on the hellmouth they would fit right in. another good fight would be them against Mayor McSnake.

good story looking forward to more of your work.
Comments from author:
Maybe, but I won't be writting too much Sunnydale stuff. I like the idea of taking Xander to Isla Sorna for JP III a hell of a lot more, but that would probably be part four of this series. If I get past part one. Thank you for reviewing and I'm glad you enjoyed it, that's what this is here for, to entertain.

Review of chapter "Just Another Walk in the Park" from eriktheviking
A great story with a vastly underused crossover. I wasn't happy with the magic/Catherine vehicle until I reached the epilogue. Well done & thanks.

PS I hope you decide to continue it.
Comments from author:
Yeah I know it was a little bit cliched, originally the story took place without time travel involvement at all. But I realized as I was typing it up that they couldn't possiby have gone to the island in February. (Plus when I wrote it I was under the mistaken impression that Xander had Amy cast the love spell much later on when the Fluke happened. That's what I get for not bothering to re-watch Buffy or research before I start writing something.)

There was still magic, with Catherine wanting to save her brother's life, most of the dialogue wasn't changed at all from rough draft to finished product. I'm amazed you read through all of that in one go and left a review so fast. :D Danke.

As I said if I do intend to continue it the story won't deal with events in Sunnydale. I've already got plot bunnylings involving Xander being around to meet Doctor Harding at the hospital when she shows up and a bit of a tease concerning the takeover of Ingen as orchestrated by Mister Ludlow. When I started this thing it just seemed to write itself coming easily from the pen to the paper. (Of course half the dialogue is reused from the film, but hey no sense in changing what works, I was't being lazy I wanted to do a crazy kind of crossover with Xander in Jurassic Park.) Future stories may be a little dodgy with Lex's crush and the age factor between the both of them, but as long as I keep it simple and avoid stupid ideas I'm sure it can come off. I mean in real life there are people with such age differences who are married and in love.

Anyway, I'm pleased you like my work. And you know I think you're right it is a bit of an underused crossover, at least I didn't make another YAHF or go with one of the more obvious methods of crossing over. And if there is a sequel be prepared to see Xander's 'pets' and Xander himself learning to co-exist as an Alpha Raptor. :D
