Tomorrow we’re going to try and go for the helicopter that I found the other day, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to run into trouble on the way, knowing our luck, and also because I saw some of the raptors skulking around the halls on my way back. I have a plan for if this happens, though;
On my scouting trip I found out that we have a room full of explosives (only the lord knows why we would have that here on a render farm, but so many things are absolutely wacky that I’m not really surprised), and I have an ominous feeling that a big explosion is the only way out of this one. If all fails, I’ll lead the dinosaurs there and blow up everything.
I have contemplated throwing them Elijah if need be, but I don’t have it in me when it comes down to it, I think.
We might make it, though. Let’s hope so”
Ep.10: ”Come Fly with Me” (season finale)
Lasse’s diary Jan. 23rd:
“Hi there and hello, diary!
We have been stuck a long time in the render farm, but we haven’t been short of food with all the meat John finds all the time, which is really cool.
Elijah Wood joined us the other day, and at first John was really angry with him and even hit him in the face, when he first approached us while we were eating dinner. I have to admit that just seeing this almost made me feel as good as it would have hitting him myself, ‘cause he has just been so annoying and snobbish all the time here! I don’t know why John was so upset, though, but they somehow get along now, so no worries. And there’s meat enough for everyone.
John went out scouting for the government’s Raptor Extermination Squad or other things we might find useful and only returned last night. He didn’t see the RES, but reported having found a helicopter that we can fly away in!
I knew getting that helicopter pilot training would be useful some day! Yay
We decided to wait until today before leaving, so this morning we went on our way to the helicopter, through the whole render farm and though some of the jungle in which the small helipad was hidden.
On the way there we ran into the raptors.
I was very thrilled to see them again and they have grown quite a lot as it turns out, the critters! They didn’t seem to remember me or our way of communicating, though, and they approached us in a kind of hungry manner, that I was not all happy about. John wasn’t either, but I think that we both expected Elijah Wood to approach them, now he has been complaining all the time that he hasn’t seen a raptor yet, but he just turned and ran away!
I really tried talking to the raptors, but they wouldn’t listen at all.
We were standing in the big hall, and John seemed to get a good idea then. He told me not to worry about him and to go and fly Elijah Wood and myself home safely and that he’d return later. Then he ran away with the raptors after him. I trust John and his survival skills, so I went to the helipad and flew home with Elijah, who didn’t seem happy at all.
There was quite a lot of media when we landed after I had announced it to the airport over the helicopter radio.
After getting home safely, I still worry about John, though… He’s probably fine and I’ll see him soon

Lasse Rützou Bruntse’s diary, Jan. 20th:
“Hey there, Diary…
Today has been both at really good and a really sad day at the same time.
I had been standing still for almost 12 hrs and it was beginning to hurt my legs a bit. The T-rex was still there, looking really hungry and angry, and I didn’t really know what to do.
But then I suddenly heard a lot of gunshots and John Muller screaming angrily, and the T-rex fell down! Yay, I could move again!
I quickly crawled down from the tower and there was John, without his shirt for some weird reason, huffing and puffing and looking very angry, and the T-rex was lying on the ground and saying sad noises. It looked like it was really sorry for what it had done. But then John gave me his rifle and told me that I should be the one to put the T-rex to sleep because that would be the right thing.
I am actually also a pretty good shot, so I knew that I had to do it even though I really didn’t want to, ‘cause it was so sweet and sad, lying there. I looked into its big, mild eyes and pulled the trigger. I don’t think I have ever done something so hard before.
I wanted to bury it afterwards, but John said it was too big.
I won’t let John shoot the raptors, definitely not, so I have to be quick if we see them.
But I guess we’re fine now, so that’s good. And John managed to find some ENORMOUS stakes somewhere that we could eat for dinner and that was nice
John Muller’s diary Jan. 20th:
I finally managed to give the raptor extermination squad the slip yesterday, and once I got away it was piece of cake to find the render farm, as you would only expect, I guess.
I looked through the whole place, but only found Elijah Wood wandering grumpily around; no sign of Lasse Rützou Bruntse. Elijah told me that he had been at the place about a day and that he hadn’t seen any raptors, which, in his weird mind, was a bad thing because he really wanted to “study” them. I personally think it’s a miracle he’s still alive, really.
He also told me that he had noticed the T-rex outside the facility when he first got there, but it seemed to be occupied by my “talkative friend” in a watch tower, just waiting for him to move so it could see him and grab him. According to the idiot, the T-rexes as a race are extremely patient animals, and probably it would still be there if it hadn’t already eaten Lasse because he had to move!
Needless to say I rushed out to help Lasse immediately upon hearing this, though knowing that my rifle might not be strong enough to get kill the animal.
Sure enough the T-rex was there and I could just glimpse Lasse standing very still by a window, while I was sneaking over there.
I would like to say that I was cold as a cucumber and planned out my actions, but I got so angry at this point that I just started shooting wildly, aiming at the monster’s feet. I think that it was because I shot several times at the same place (somehow), but the animal actually fell over with a giant crash! I guess I must have gone through the skin after all.
When I calmed down and ran to the foot of the tower, I met Lasse who was ecstatic that I had finally saved him. At this point he ran over to the T-rex that was still moving on the ground.
I gave him my rifle and told him to finish it, so he would feel that it was an ok thing to do.
We’re in the render farm now, resting. I wonder what the extermination squad is doing. Something stupid, probably.”

"The Raptor Diaries" Ep 8: "But I thought..."
Lasse Rützou Bruntse's diary Jan. 19th:
Hello hello hello, diary!
I have found the render farm! Woohoo!
It would be better if John Muller had found it aswell, though, but I have been though just about the whole place today and he's nowhere to be found. I know we have been lost some days in the jungle and all, but I guess I always expected John to have a good sense of direction, so when I finally found the place this afternoon, I was all happy because I expected him to be here and everything to be back to normal. Us and the raptors together again.
But there weren't any of the little critters here either Not even Elijah Wood.
It gets worse, though; I have no idea how or why, but the T-rex is out again!
I have been looking around for people today, and the last place I went was a secluded surveillance tower, which was unfortunate 'cause this was where the T-rex found me, and I haven't been able to communicate with it this time- I think it might be hungry. So so far I have been trying not to move and just wait until it goes away, 'cause I can't really escape and if the dino sees me, it can easily break through the glass of the windows and eat me.
I really hope something can distract it soon (writing while trying not to move, is very awkward, too), otherwise I'm a goner for sure!
Lasse out- maybe for the last time!"

"The Raptor Diaries" ep. 7: "Could We be more lost?!" pt. II
John Muller's diary, Jan. 18th:
Lasse Rützou Bruntse and I have been separated yet again- it seems to happen all the time, and I don't know what the deal is with it anymore.
I had to stop in a clearing to take a leak, but then Lasse ran off all of a sudden, shouting that he'd be back with the raptors (which, I'll admit, worried me more than a little bit). I ran after him as fast as I could, but he was gone in the undergrowth of the jungle, and I had to give up and try to backtrack.
This is when I ran into the government's raptor extermination squad (yes. Yes, they have such a thing).
Apparantly they had taken my report seriously after not hearing back from Elijah Wood, who is a famous actor after all. I wonder where he is, anyway.
I tried to explain to them that I had to get back to Lasse, but they didn't believe me, and one of them gave me a shot in the neck with some kind of drug, so the last couple of hours I have been walking with them in a weird haze, thus not knowing where Lasse is at all. Just my luck.
We are camped in the jungle and looking for the render farm as well as Lasse and I were before, and I can only hope that Lasse has decided to try to find it on his own, as I have no idea at all how to get back to the clearing where I last saw him.
But i guess if we get the raptors under control, everything will be allright and we have serious gunpower now."
"The Raptor Diaries" ep. 7: "Could We be more lost?!" pt. I
Lasse Rützou Bruntse's diary, Jan. 18th:
After yesterday John Muller and I still haven't found our way back to the render farm.
Well if it were just so well, but after the T-rex situation we were going together in a direction (not necessarily the right one as it turns out), but then John had to pee and I saw the tail of a raptor, I thought, so I ran after it, shouting to John that I'd be right back.
It turned out to be a completely different dinosaur, an oviraptor (I had completely forgotten that we have had those too), so I went back to the place where John would be waiting, but he had left
I knew that he would probably come back to the same place to look for me, so I have stayed here most of the day, but he hasn't been back yet
I wonder if he has gotten lost trying to find the place again? Hmm...
Oh, wait, what's that?! I think I just saw a raptor tail over there behind a bush!
I'll just go and check it out; the raptors will be able to take me back to the render farm for sure!
Yays, sounds like them, too, at least a couple of them! Hooray!
Lasse out- in a hurry"
