Summary: What-If Claire never drove away to make the phone call about tracking the Indominus. Instead she finds herself hiding under machinery with Owen and soaked in gasoline.

‘I can track her from the control room,’ Claire says, marching out of the viewing room with purpose. Behind her she vaguely hears Owen say that they should check out the paddock to see if they can find anything. Once she gets to her car, she opens the door and reaches for her phone. Slamming the door shut, she dials the control room.
As she talks with Lowery, she starts to pace, eventually walking around to the large doors to inspect the new work done to them. She glances up at them, trying to see if there is any more indication of an escape.
‘She’s in the cage,’ Lowery eventually tells her and Claire feels her heart stop.
‘I’m right here and she’s not there.’
‘I’m telling you,’ Lowery says. ‘She’s in the cage.’
Claire pulls the phone away from her ear as she turns to face the gate. The blood drains from her face as it starts to slide open. Through the phone she can hear the screams of someone cut out with a crunch and she prays that it wasn’t Owen. Her breathing starts to get irregular as the security guard slips through and heads towards a truck. He doesn’t notice her and Claire looks back at the paddock. She can see Owen running and the dinosaur hot on his heels. When it becomes apparent that the door isn’t going to close in time to lock the Indominus inside, Claire moves.
Without thinking about how this will ruin her clothes, Claire scrambles to crawl under the excavator near her. She keeps her eyes on Owen, watching him push himself to run faster. He makes it out of the before the door closes but he isn’t the only one. She barely notices Owen sliding under the excavator with her, her eyes glued to the disaster before her.
2. Finally saw Jurassic World today. I really liked it a lot despite what I’ve heard from different reviews. Chris Pratt of course was totes badass and Bryce Dallas Howard was awesome as well. Maybe it’s because of my deep love for Jurassic Park in the first place (yes I know the whole movie pandered to the nostalgia of the old movie) but that just made me love it so much more. Also, Blue is my baby.
Yaten with their “Look how super cool and unconcerned i am by you with my hand in my pocket” crappery. Mako all tense and hunched over like she’s about to see if the rest of Yaten can fit in that pocket too. Chibs2 tugging at her skirt in what I will assume is a gesture of support and solidarity. Meanwhile Taiki looks on like they’re critiquing a production of Makoto Is Going To Kick Our Ass: The Musical all the while never once removing their evil John Lennon sunglasses because OF FUCKING COURSE THEY WOULDN’T.
