What Could Have Been: The author's original idea to conclude "Rise of the Maniraptors" was an Idiot Plot involving lots bizarre Out of Character moments. It basically involved Vegid suddenly wanting to kill the sea scorpions and fish, with Sampson and her getting into an argument about timeline altering and what is humane, with Kollin joining in the fight complaining how much of a Jerkass she is. Then, seeing the maniraptors as aliens, the scorpion and fish armies decided to team up to destroy the invaders, while they are still arguing. Eveeryone but Lora tries to break up the fight, with her having a breakdown from the stressful events. They return to the present, with Vegid still being a Jerkass, decides to use the Silurian creatures as experiments. Cyryl then explains her behaviour, then they leave. Jeff meets Rob like in the final version, but he gets ignored with nobody remarking about whet they learn about Jeff, and Lora runs away realising that Sampson isn't helping her in her stressed state. Thankfully, the author came up with a better conclusion than this.
