"Two Things, and a Dinosaur" 
Author: Jeannie | | ayuette
Genre: Crossover, Humor, Gen
Characters: Alice Hamilton, David Hatter, Jenny Lewis, Rex
Disclaimer: I don't own ITV's Primeval, if I did, we wouldn't be waiting until 2011 for a new season, I also don't own SyFy's Alice, If I did, I probably would still be writing fanfiction. xD I don't even own the title of the fic. That's borrowed from a Doctor Who episode line.
Authors Note:
This was written for veracity for White Rabbit Wednesday. I know it's not JUST what you wanted, but I hope it will work! This is also my first fanfiction for either Primeval, or Alice. So, I'm a bit new at writing these characters. Bear with me a bit?

Two Things and a Dinosaur

They hadn’t noticed the green lizard right away. And they probably would have kept right on walking down the busy London streets before they noticed it, if Hatter hadn’t squealed.

He didn’t shriek, and he didn’t scream. Instead, he sort of let out a little high pitched yelp, and jumped several steps back. His sudden actions caused Alice to jump as well, and turn to give her fiancé a rather strange look. “What on Earth?”

It took him a moment of open mouthed, spluttering before he finally found his voice. “I don’t know what that thing is. It looked like a giant, Lizard. An’ I’m pretty sure that those things aren’t native to London.”

Alice frowned. It wasn’t that she didn’t believe Hatter… then, quite suddenly, a flash of green caught the corner of her eye, and she heard a high pitched chattering noise coming from somewhere over to her left. She felt Hatter quickly grab her shoulder and spin her over quickly, his hand pointing toward the creature.

It was a small lizard. Alice couldn’t tell exactly how large the creature was, but it looked to be about three or four feet long, and maybe a foot high. It was similar in looks to an Iguana, only with strange, purple plumage coming off of the top of its head, and what looked to be wing like stretches of scaly skin protruding from its back.

It cocked its head curiously at Alice, and let out a strange, chattering noise; it darted closer to her, and then moved back several paces. With her curiosity getting the better of her, Alice went to go stretch out a hand when Hatter quite suddenly snatched it back. “You’re not supposed to touch it Alice!”

Taking her attention away from the creature for a moment, Alice paused to glare at Hatter. “Well why not?”

“It looks like a baby Jabberwock. Only... they don’t have wing-y things.” He said, waggling his fingers a bit to emphasize “wing-y things”.

Alice arched an eyebrow, her attention momentarily distracted from the lizard. “First off, there aren’t any Jabberwockies on This Side of the Looking Glass. It probably is just somebody’s pet. Secondly, wing-y things?

Hatter shrugged. “Best I could come up with on a moment’s notice.”

Laughing, Alice went to turn back to further inspect the little lizard, only to find that it had completely vanished. For a moment she looked disappointed, it would have been fun to take pictures to show her Mum, but since the little creature was gone, Alice was about to put it right out of her mind.

That plan was abruptly halted when; quiet suddenly, a young woman came barreling around the corner, almost crashing headlong into Alice and Hatter.

She was probably in her late twenties, and her long brown hair shielded her face for a moment as she doubled over, hands resting on her knees while she attempted to catch her breath. “Connor and Abby are going to be furious with me!” She muttered, almost to herself. When she drew herself up to her full height, she turned to apologize to the couple and Alice had to laugh for a moment as she did an almost comical double take as she spotted Hatter.

CONNOR! Look, Connor, I’m so sorry, but Rex got loose! I went to drop by some research at Abby’s flat when…” The rapid fire dialogue trailed off as she did, yet another double-take.

Alice and Hatter exchanged a glance. Just what was going on here?

“I’m sorry!” She stammered again, staring at Hatter. “You look just like a college of mine…”

Alice could see Hatter about to respond, probably with something that would have confused the poor woman more, so she quickly elbowed him in the side.

He hissed a pointed “Ow” in her ear, but changed whatever his response would have been with a casual shrug. “I just have one of those faces I guess. Do you need a hand?”

The woman couldn’t seem to take her eyes off Hatter for another moment, (Which made Alice distinctly uncomfortable) but then shook her head almost as if to visibly clear it. “Actually… yeah. Have you seen a green lizard go by here? HE’s about yay big” she gestured toward the ground, “green, kind of scaly, answers to the name ‘Rex’? I went to drop some paperwork off at my coworkers flat and I let him out by mistake. They’re going to be furious if I can’t find him.”

Alice elbowed Hatter again. “See?” She hissed into his ear. “It wasn’t a Jabberwock. Just somebody’s house pet.” Hatter rolled his eyes, but he didn’t make any argument against that fact. It wasn’t his fault after all that he was still getting used to the mechanics of This Side.

“We did, actually. I lost him though, he was around here a few minutes ago though.”

The young woman sighed. “He could be anywhere now… thanks anyway. I’m Jenny Lewis.”

Alice smiled. “I’m Alice Hamilton, this is my boyfriend, David Hatter.”

Jenny stared again. “I’m sorry… but you don’t happen to have a cousin or a brother do you?”

“Sorry… Nope. It’s just me.”

Jenny shook her head in amazement. “It’s just that you look just like somebody that I work with. Anyways, it was nice meeting you both. IF you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a lizard to catch.” She grimaced.

“We’ll keep our eyes open for him if we see him again.” Alice promised, offering the flustered woman a smile.

“Thanks again.” She rummaged through her purse and pulled out a small white business card. “IF you find him, can you give this number a call?”

“Sure thing, we’ll be sure to give you a ring if we find… Rex, you said?”

The woman nodded, once again pausing to stare at Hatter. “That’s just eerie.” She muttered under her breath, before rushing to find the lizard.

Heee, I love this! It's a cute little vignette. ♥ Maybe Hatter is Connor's parallel self? Could be...

I'm glad you liked it!
I actually HAVE a fanfiction idea revolving around that. But it just didn't *fit* in here. Hopefully in another fic that will get mentioned. :P

You should have them meet Connor next. :D This was funny.
=): Alice | Alice/Hatterayuette on December 28th, 2009 01:49 pm (UTC)
It was one of those things I WANTED to do, but couldn't.
I'm glad you thought it was funny though! I haven't written much by way of humor fics, so this was a good test.

WHEEE Alice/Primeval.

This was awesome!

Glad you liked!
The world needs more Alice/Primeval crossovers. *nods*

Oh, oh! I love it! Poor Jenny, helping out coworkers and finding Hatter and not!Abby instead. I love how flustered she was because Abby would definitely kill her if something happened to Rex. Please ask Caroline. It's cute and Hatter's reaction to Rex. Hee! Alice would be all fearless and Hatter'd be like, "Did you not just get back from Wonderland recently? Are you daft?" Ah! I think you got the characters quite well. Thank you for writing it out. *grins*
=): Alice | Alice/Hatter | Forestayuette on December 28th, 2009 01:52 pm (UTC)
That's what I was thinking. She's normally very calm and collected, but loosing Rex? That WOULD fluster her!
I think Hatter would have quite the hard time with the creatures in our world. Lizards in our world are (mostly) harmless. Lizards in his world, are not. Bit of culture shock perhaps?

I'm so glad you liked it! I know it's not just the prompt you were looking for, but I hope it worked ;)
tj: Primeval - Connor Smileveracity on December 28th, 2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
Jenny is efficient to the nth degree but we all know how scared anyone would be if Abby ever found out. And then there's the fact she works at the office and no one would let her live it down, especially Connor once he got back.

Imagine how Hatter would react if he found out that Rex was from an anomaly and the past. Talk about culture shock. He might reconsider them moving to Wonderland...permanently. At least you know your enemies there.

I absolutely love it. I don't ever expect anything when I throw out whatever my brain comes up with because it is a twisted kingdom up there. Very, very twisted and gnarly with scary booby traps of visuals. (Such as Connor dreaming of jello wrestling and ending up in the middle when dream Jenny and Abby sock him in for the very idea.) Scary place.

That was awesome! There needs to be more Alice/Primeval crossovers out there. I would love to see Hatter punch out a dinosour in front of the Primeval team in a story, but there haven't been that many stories yet.
=): Alice | Alice/Hatter | Forestayuette on December 28th, 2009 07:22 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't that be incredibly fun to write? I suppose fighting anomaly creatures would be no different than punching out that Jabberwocky in "Alice", so he could easily pull it off. ;)

Cute. Though I'm afraid from the description of Rex, I went Jurassic Park to those lovely spitting dinosaurs. I hope Rex isn't poisonous.
=): Primeval | Abby | W/ Rexayuette on December 28th, 2009 07:21 pm (UTC)
Nope, Rex, thankfully isn't poisonous. He's just a bit of a troublemaker. Truthfully I can't remember WHAT kind of Dinosaur he is... hahahaha ^^;

*pokes icon* Rex! :)

Sexy Rexy! He's all cuddly and cute.

Hehe, that was really good!
Nako: alice: hatter lovenakotaco on December 29th, 2009 04:47 am (UTC)
AHHHHH I LOVE YOU FOR WRITING THIS CROSSOVER ♥ Rex does seem to be the cause of at least a third of the trouble they all get into, doesn't he.

also are there really no more new ones 'til 2011? Because that would just be cruel. ;;
=): Primeval | Abby | W/ Rexayuette on December 29th, 2009 04:52 am (UTC)
Doesn't he? I giggle every time he's on screen because I just know something funny's gonna happen. (Plus, he's like... the cutest Dinosaur EVER).

Sadly, that's true. ;____________; Its such a horrible way to leave the fans, but it DOES build up excitement methinks.

*Giggles* Poor Jenny. Poor, poor Jenny.
=): Actors | ALP/Hannah | Hugayuette on January 1st, 2010 04:17 am (UTC)
If Connor and Abby find out Rex's has gotten loose in London... *giggle* Well, actually. Connor would probably be more forgiving, and come up with some adorably geektastic way of getting him back, Abby would be the one to reckon with :3

gate_shipgate_ship on January 1st, 2010 05:24 am (UTC)
Abby would freak. And then through crazy random happenstances, Abby would end up meeting Hatter and Conner would end up meeting Hatter and more chaos would happen. Or Alice would end up meeting Conner and start talking about Wonderland or something.

Because that would be intensely amusing.

Have you been going through my fanfiction files or something? :DDDD

Damnit. I wanna write that now. x)

Gotta love the crossovers.
gate_shipgate_ship on January 1st, 2010 05:54 am (UTC)
Whoopsie. Sorry for the inspiration...though not if you do actually write about it...I prefer to think that our brains may exist on planes that are right next to each other.
