If only I have premium membership, then I would have been able to use that Juniper Lee journal skin. Anyway, I have an idea that's been on my mind lately. I'm thinking of hopefully writing up a Classic Spyro/The Life and Times of Juniper Lee fanfiction crossover at some point in the future. Also, it will serve as my return to fanfiction after a hiatus. Aside from the fact that their jobs and responsibilities (they both protect and fight magical creatures on a daily basis) are similar and they can both skateboard, the composer who composed the background music and the theme song is the same guy who composed the music for Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer, Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon and Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly which happens to be Stewart Copeland. Plus, no one have done this crossover before, fanfiction and fanart wise. The problem is that Juniper Lee cannot physically leave Orchid Bay City 'cause she is the Te Xuan Ze so I have to figure out how to bring :iconoldspyroplz: to her hometown. Come to think of it, what if she have to go on holiday with her family if she really can't leave her homecity? She can't stay in one place forever. I'm thinking of not having Ripto as the main antagonist 'cause he is already the main antagonist in Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge (it's a continuation of the Classic Spyro series and American Dragon: Jake Long) and he's been overused. Not to mention, the "portal plot" have been used before, perhaps too many times. The Sorceress would have been a villainess in the possible upcoming crossover but she's already dead. As for Gnasty Gnorc, I don't think he knows any more spells besides turning dragons into crystal statues and transforming gems into Gnorcs. So, picking a villain is going to be difficult. The other problem is wondering who is going to use the banishment spell on :iconoldspyroplz: and Sparx the Dragonfly. If I wanted to bring back The Sorceress, hopefully I can find a way around this dilemma. 

Originally, I wanted Juniper Lee and her friends to show up in :iconspyrothedragonplz:'s world but I decided to scrap the idea when her weakness came to mind. Overcoming these restrictions might prove to be a problem. But now is not the time, seeing as I'm currently focusing on my university assignments and the ideas and the storyline of the forth coming crossover haven't been fully developed yet. Furthermore, it doesn't have a title and a summary yet. Hopefully, I should be able to type up this fanfiction during the summer holidays. :fingerscrossed: Unless I have to go to Hong Kong again with my family. 





As you can tell, the style of the music in both of these worlds are similar but it's a no brainer who the composer is. Whether I upload this story to this website or Fanfiction.net is anyone's question.

Hmmm... Well, it certainly hasn't been done before! I like how you try to stay true to what is canon in both Spyro and Juniper Lee, respectively. As to how to have Spyro wind up in her world, it's tough to say. Yes, the "portal plot" is kinda cliche, but if no other alternative can be found, it won't necessarily ruin the story (heck, all anyone can do is nitpick, which shouldn't affect how they feel about your story). If you can't think of a pre-existing character from either series to be the villain, you can always make up one.

All in all, I'd say it's worth a shot!

How'd you know that I'm intending to get :iconoldspyroplz: and Juniper Lee in character? So far, all I can think of is one of the villains can use a banishment spell on him. If I wanted to get Juniper Lee and the other characters from the cartoon in character, I have to carry out a lot of research by watching the episodes and reading the articles from The Life and Times of Juniper Lee Wikia. As for :iconspyrothedragonplz:, I already knew how to get him act the way he's supposed to be. All I have to do is get him to be cocky, arrogant, overconfident and stubborn. He's too easy to get in character.

Yeah, the more expressed a character's personality is, the easier it is to replicate.

I could imagine him speaking in his "Tom Kenny" voice in my story.

Cool!  Say, isn't that also the voice of SpongeBob (y'know, before the show started to become dreadful)?

Wow, I didn't know that!  Granted, my knowledge of Spyro is pretty subpar, but I did rent Enter the Dragonfly for the GameCube one time.

Tom Kenny also voiced the Electrolls from the Hurricos realm, The Professor, the Alchemist from the Fracture Hills realm and some minor characters from Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer. Tom Kenny also voiced Sgt. James Byrd, the Tikis from the Molten Crater realm and some minor characters in Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon. He also provided his voice for the Professors from the Jurassic Jungle realm in Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly.

Wow, I completely forgot about the show Juniper Lee!

I think this is an interesting idea, and it certainly sounds like you've got it planned out well, except for the parts you haven't figured out yet. I think you should do it, especially if you think it's something you'd enjoy writing!

There is even a fanclub for it which is this: :iconjuniperlee-fans:. I still haven't decided if it's going to be set after Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon or in between any of the first three Spyro games. I would have used Ripto but he's already the main antagonist of Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge and he's already been overused. Did you know that Stewart Copeland is the composer of The Life and Times of Juniper Lee and Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer, Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon and Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly

If I want to get Juniper Lee and the other characters from the cartoon in character, I have to carry out a lot of research.
