Lesser Known Inconveniences of Being Giant/Tiny
@i-am-insane YES. Do it! That’s such a good point, because it would definitely still look super high to her. Who knows what the psychological effects would be
I’ve been on a bit of a micro kick lately, so applying that logic ot a micro? It must be like getting dropped from a plane without a parachute.
I’m conflicted on if its more interesting to have an adrenaline junky be addicted to be tossed around like a toy, or a woman panic every time she gets accidently blown of the table, even if she comes out of it fine every time. Or considering micros… both!
My mind never fails to go to evil places whenever I use the leaf-blower.
@i-am-insane Yeah, she could start out terrified, but then when she realizes how quickly she falls and how she’s okay at the bottom, maybe she starts getting more and more addicted to it. Like, she’s powerless in so many ways, but being able to survive what feels like an incredible height makes her feel just a little bit powerful?
(sorry @blehb for getting so off topic haha)
@i-am-insane She becomes so brave she gets her own little drone to fly around in.

Re: the glasses/ contacts. I’ve always imagined my shrinking to actually be done with magic. Even if the contraption looks like tech, because only magic allows me to handle the problems I’d have if just my natural human body shrank: my substantial dental work and IUD would burst through me like huge grenades. No thanks!
Sooo in my stories I magically shrink all the things I would still have on me even if I was “naked”, if I want the shrinking-out-of-clothes trope, if I want it to make a little more logical sense, then the clothing stays too, so maybe the shrinking tech gives wiggle room of an inch or two outside of the skin when it’s selecting matter to shrink. This would keep glasses and clothing intact but not a purse.
Anyway, back to shrinking women problems. Transportation is a big one. If a giant is carrying you, they have to be more careful than someone carrying a raw egg. Or they would need to have a container they prepared for it ahead of time.
Sitting in a chest pocket - assuming the giant is very careful to not bump against things - is really the safest place you could hope for an average guy to have available. Every time I wear a button-up shirt with a chest pocket I think about how it would be perfect for if I ran across a tiny person.
The big hoodie pockets that go across the center of the belly on sweatshirts without zippers would also be cozy. Almost like a kangaroo pouch. Those aren’t very fashionable right now, though.
