Tainted and Threshold Shift by Macx

  • Recommended by: tumbledown
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis:
    • Tainted: Owen Grady had always had a talent for animals. It ran in the family. Masrani Global recruited him to train raptors. It was a novel idea, something only a crazy or insane person would attempt. Owen wasn't crazy or insane. He knew he could do this, though his grandfather had always warned him: don't get too close. Don't let them connect. Well, too late. Way too late.
    • Threshold Shift: It's been over a year since the park reopened, but nothing about working at Jurassic World is routine. Especially when you're the alpha of a raptor pack. Owen Grady would never make the mistake to think every day is the same. He also didn't want student workers traipsing around his enclosure, let alone interns. Still, he got them for a trial run. Trouble is waiting in the wings. He just knows it. And then there is the rumor of poachers on Isla Sorna. Wonderful. Just what he needed.

  • Comments: The connection between Owen Grady and his Raptor Squad, if being Alpha meant telepathic communication. <— That doesn't do this epic 100k fic justice. The raptors are almost people with feelings and intelligence.

The Scaly Raptor by Harry Leferts

  • Recommended by: IenHenzX
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Owen had learned a lot about animals and training them from his grandfather, but had always thought his grandfather a bit crazy due to his stories that the amulet he owned was magical and let him understand animals. Now that he's dead, the amulet has been passed to Owen who is about to learn the truth behind his grandfather's stories...
  • Tags: Crack, Supernatural, Hurt/Comfort
  • Pairing (s): Owen/Claire all the way.
  • Comments: Also has a tropes page.
    • Basically, Owen inherits a magic amulet from his grandfather, one that allows him and others to transform into dinosaurs! And also, dinosaurs into humans. Hijinks ensue. It's much better and more epic than it sounds. Trust me.

Raptor, Raptor, Burning Bright, The Raptor's Ransom and The New World by Disa Langlois

  • Recommended by: purpletophat
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis:
    • Raptor, Raptor, Burning Bright: In the aftermath of the Jurassic World disaster, Owen Grady returns to the resort, alone, to rescue his raptors. ACU will be coming to clean up, and this time, they will not use tranquillizers. But Owen soon realizes that everything changed the night the Indominus Rex escaped. His raptors are more intelligent than anyone suspected, and they are beginning to understand the world around them. Their intelligence changes everything for Owen...But velociraptors are valuable property – and InGen has other plans for Blue and her species ...
    • The Raptor's Ransom: "In hindsight, kidnapping the human partner of the alpha velociraptor would turn out to be a very flawed decision..." It has been a year since Owen Grady stole his own velociraptors back from InGen, and disappeared with them into the night. Since then, Owen has been living with the raptor pack, deep in the Amazon rainforest, learning the mysteries of velociraptor society. But with creatures as intelligent and complex as velociraptors, nothing ever stays the same for long. Owen is starting to wonder whether he really has a place in the raptor pack – or if his idyllic life is about to come crashing to an end. When a group of strangers arrives in the rainforest, it seems that the outside world is about to collide with the small secret world of the velociraptors. Owen will have to fight to preserve everything he cares about – but first of all, he will have to survive ...
    • The New World: “Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution, have just been thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?” - Alan Grant. The rumours are all true! Some velociraptors did escape from Jurassic Park 20 years ago, and Alan Grant and Ian Malcolm are on a mission to find them. When they reach the tiny town of San Judas Tadeo, deep in the Amazon rainforest, Owen Grady realizes that this is a chance for the velociraptor pack to make some powerful friends - if he can show Grant and Malcolm that raptors are not the monsters they thought they were. The raptors are ready to face the world, but there are enemies circling. A new world is hanging in the balance – but no-one ever changes the world without a fight...

  • Comments: A stunning canon expansion. The touches of humor are great, and while the story doesn't slow down, it doesn't skimp on character development.

fuck me, im falling apart by CalicoKitten

  • Recommended by: CJ Croen 1393.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Here's the thing: Claire never really had much of an interest in dinosaurs. She remembers watching the news stories on the original park, remembers her Mom tutting and saying, I told you so, didn't I tell you so, Claire-bear? Nothing good can come of messing with things that shouldn't be messed with. Now, sitting in the courtroom, watching grainy footage of screaming people, of Zara being caught, being dropped and caught again, watching Zara as the Mosasaurus' jaws clamp shut, she thinks her mom was right. - in which Claire wants to move on with her life, but life has other plans
  • Pairing(s): Owen/Claire, though it's not the main focus.
  • Tags: Panic Attacks, Ethical Dilemmas, Post-Movie(s), Accidental Therapy
  • Comments: A borderline Deconstruction Fic, this is a truly fascinating story that shows the aftermath of the 2015 Isla Nublar incident from Claire's perspective, how she and Owen deal with the emotional baggage and the legal issues, and they even get to meet the survivors of previous incidents, including Grant, Sattler, Malcolm, Sarah, Nick, the Kirbys and Billy.

The Hunters by Sulkdodds

  • Recommended by: Edcrab
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Samuel Long was always looking for adventure, and what could be better than Isla Sorna, hunting dinosaurs? But one by one, people are dying and the line between fantasy and reality is blurring.
  • Tags: Suspense, Adventure, Violence
  • Comments: Recommended to anyone who can appreciate the book as well as the film! Note that there are moments that are a little on the disturbing side, and not just because of the actions of dinosaurs, hint hint.

Jurassic Park the Legacy of Site B by Anguirus111

  • Recommended by: Krspace T
  • Status: Dead (last updated August 2017)
  • Synopsis: The world knows of Isla Sorna only as a lost world, but few remember the days when it was still InGen's Site B Facility. This is the untold story of its final days and the sequence of decisions that were made thereby ensuring its self-destruction.
  • Tags: Adventure, Mystery
  • Comments: Any fan of Jurassic Park who has read the books, seen the movies and played the games can appreciate all the research this man has done in the making of this story and the detailed character arcs. A true JP fan should read it!

The Savage Island Documentary by Crossoverpairinglover

  • Recommended by Krspace T
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis Why was Spinosaurus not recorded on the island? How do so many dinosaurs exist on a single island? What lives there? Will anyone even read this. This story has a interpretation of all these questions.
  • Comments Like the above example, it details the origins of the island using book, movie and game elements, and discusses plot holes like feeding the dinosaurs. The story is humorous, most of it coming from Ian Malcom. Oddly enough it ties into Young Justice Next Gen, though you'd have to read said story to understand how

Isla Sorna: My Island Survival, Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 by 21gloverboy

  • Recommended by Dustchu
  • Status: Part 1 Complete, Part 2 Complete, Part 3 Dormant

The Infinite Loops: Jurassic Park by Garnettfox

  • Recommended by: draconis 826
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Welcome to the Jurassic Loops.
  • Comments: A fascinating look at what might happen if all the Jurassic Park movies were trapped in a time loop, following the rules of The Infinite Loops. As a community project, it's really very good and worth a read.

The Cat and the Canary by Countdown

  • Recommended by: Sophiebybophie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Mr. Masrani had them close the gate while people were still in her paddock. But what if he'd had them lock the gate when the camera showed the worker opening it? After all, they must keep the asset contained at all costs. In which the Indominus Rex is bored, has conflicted and confused instincts… and she's lonely.
  • Tags: Suspense, thriller, gore, minor (bg characters) character death, violence, injury.
  • Comments: Amazingly written and the character are actually in character, including the Indominus Rex!

Alternative Universe. The characters are written into a different world/universe than the one they are typically from.

It's not the Raptor DNA by skullsandduggery

  • Recommended by: melodenesa, Decaf Grub 47393
  • Status: Dead (last updated February 2017)
  • Synopsis: "Her hateful gaze was all too familiar, almost a mirror when he saw past the crimson color, and slit pupils." Because we all know the scientists of Jurassic World had proven themselves incapable of exercising discipline when it came to temptations. Why would it be any different with creating the Indominus?
  • Pairing(s): Owen and Claire, though not the main focus
  • Tags: AU-Canon Divergence
  • Comments: Basically an Indominus au redemption fic. Follows canon till the Main Street showdown of Jurassic World. Super tight relationship building between Owen, his three surviving raptors, and their newest pack member.

Broad Shouldered Beasts by Bullroars

  • Recommended by: Tracym
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Claire Dearing has successfully run Jurassic World for seven years without a major incident. Trust Owen Grady to fuck that up. (Or, three months prior to the Indominus Event, Vic Hoskins makes a bad decision, Owen Grady goes missing, and four six-foot, three hundred pound murder lizards escape into Claire's park. She can hear Alan Grant shouting, "I told you so!" from Montana.)
  • Pairing(s): Owen/Claire
  • Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Owen Absolutely Turns His Back on the Cage, Blood and Gore, Dinosaurs, Biology Inaccuracies, Motorcycles, Explicit Language,Raw Eating, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD, Politics
  • Comments: Out of all the Jurassic World fiction that I've read, this feels the closest to what the creators of the movie were trying for. The situations are realistic, and the characterization is spot-on.

Boundaries by Bibliotecaria_D

  • Recommended by: Foorocks 10
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Blue doesn't know where they are.
  • Pairing(s): None
  • Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Graphic Injuries, Viewpoint of a Carnivore
  • Comments: An amazing work of Xenofiction. Blue's perspective is obviously not human, but the reader emphasizes with her struggles. Fic has not been updated since 2018, but ends on a relatively positive note.
  • Now has tropes page.

Imprint by Myrielle

  • Recommended by: CJ Croen 1393
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: She is not supposed to be there when the Indominus Rex hatches. But she is the first thing it sees when the shell breaks. She never wanted to be a mother. Suddenly, she is.
  • Pairing(s): Owen/Claire, though the main focus is the familial bond between Claire & the Indominus Rex
  • Comments: A cool little "what if" story wherein Claire accidentally stumbles upon the I. Rex as she's hatching and the little abomination imprints on her. Claire ends up becoming the I. Rex's Parental Substitute, with Owen giving her some much needed pointers.
    • Note that this story is actually also a crossover with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so pass it if that's not your cup of tea.

Shinnen:New Year by Ford1114 and Kanius

  • Recommended by tikum31
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Years have pass since he wielded the Guilty Crown. The young man, his wife, and their other friend meet new people to have a New Year Nightfest, alongside many sub-plots in a playground that is Manhattan. However, when an ancient conspiracy makes its reemergence, the heroes and villains put aside their differences to stop them, while the young man must reunite his Guilty World.
  • Crossover with: Guilty Crown, Guilty Crown: The Lost Kingdoms, YuYuGiDigiMoon, Digimon Fusion Kai, Kanius Production Abridged, various anime and fictional works in popular culture, Jurassic World references
  • Comments: This is a mega crossover taking place after Guilty Crown. At times it’s hard to follow with so many characters, but the plot and concepts are interesting enough for readers to keep going, and focuses on Shu’s main perspective in getting involved to confront his past demons. References of Jurassic Park/World are often use such as an army of Indominus rexes and hybrid dinosaurs appear as part of the antagonist organization, and that Shu plays the role of the T. Rex to reclaim his righteousness. At one point, the author mentions the connections of Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park to Code Geass's two seasons, while Guilty Crown relates to Jurassic Park III, this means the fanfic as a continuing thread is imagined like the fourth film. Later on, Rexy and Blue make their appearances in Ch. 25, alongside the Spinosaurus and The Big One in the final battles.
  • Has a trope page.
