This story is ridiculously awesome, if only because its premise is so original. I'm not sure how our world would be like if people were different sizes like this, but this story is both believable and fun. Keep it up, I'd love to see more.

PS I'd be about 2' tall, which is a good size, I think. However, my mother's side of the family would be almost 90' tall.

Aw, you skipped the best part. Granted, that little guy was being creepy and violating poor Sofi. But we giantess fans do love a good interaction scene.

Would love to hear more about the Mixed-Size Bar. I've done stories in that type of setting. It offers a lot of great scenarios. Interesting glimpse we got of it. Putting the miniature tables at ground level seems awfully risky.

Author's Response:


Yeah, sorry about that. I knew some people would be a bit disappointed about that. The thing is, I don't like those scenes. I mean, the graphic, erotic stuff just isn't my thing. I just hope you can still enjoy the stories, even without that.

Also, about the Mized-Sized Bar.. I agree, it does have potential. I've read your stories about that, and I find them really good. The thing is that I don't want to seem like I'm stealing ideas. I read your stories a long time before writing this, so I knew I shouldn't do the same. Still, the Bar scenario is good, I just don't think I'll be using it the way you have. But thanks for the thoughts, too. I always appreciate the backup. Thank you very much.

Like some of the other commenters, I like these scenarios where pronounced size differences are a part of everyday life.  Somehow, a woman seems most awe-inspiring when she can wreak havoc just going about her job and other daily business that would normally seem mundane.


You went into quite a lot of detail on the average heights!  Are you only showing the nationalities that you plan to feature in your series?  I ask because I noticed that one of my ancestral homelands is not listed, among other omissions.

I'm thinking the order of the heights is based on the real data of average national heights, correct?  That's certainly a logical way to do it, though spreading out Europe and other "first-world" countries slightly more so they don't dominate the top of the list would make things a little more interesting, in my opinion.

That being said, averages are just averages.  They say nothing about the diversity that may exist within each population, and I think this series will be especially fun if you keep that in mind as you imagine future scenarios.  It's like saying the average man is taller than the average woman: that doesn't mean there aren't women out there that most guys will be looking up at.

 Beyond the effects of immigration--countries like the United States could be home to people of Dutch ancestry and Cambodian ancestry alike, and people of different backgrounds could have children together--in a world with such a wide disparity of sizes, heights must vary much more from person to person, even between siblings born to similar-sized parents, so even in a family with a “pure” lineage, a girl might be twice as tall as her brother, who is three times taller than another sister, and so on.  That's to say nothing of unrelated people of similar ancestry, so although a Brazilian waitress nearly crushing a Swedish man might be more unlikely than the opposite, is it impossible?


Food for thought.

First of all, thanks for taking the time to read the stories and writing the comments. I really appreciate that. That being said, I'd like to answer some of your thoughts.

Sorry about missing so many countries. I'm aware that there are others that I didn't include, but I just found it harder to do. The list is not based on the ones I'm going to necessarily use, as many will probably never be included. It's a list I found in the Internet, and I thought it had overall a good variety. I might include later some countries that are not on the list. Who knows, really.

I was also aware about the lack of variety in countries like Europe, which are most of them on the bigger side. However, considering the variety, I believe it's possible to make people from South Korea, for example, giant compared to others, so even if the Europeans are the biggest, that doesn't mean they get to be the only giant-sized.

About the averages, that's true. Averages are just averages. Of course many people are beyond the "rule". However, in a world with such a disparity of heights, even a short Dutch would be massive compared to a tall Colombian. If you meant that the averages used in the original list aren't always the rule, then you're right, again, but said list was just a guide. I know there are many Colombians taller than Dutch, using the previous example. But for the sake of the stories, I just took the average as a rule. It might be interesting to mix sizes a bit more, throughout the countries, but then the original idea would be lost.

Finally, the ancestry part. That is true in the world as we know it. Many people have different bloodlines, which could cause a different variety of sizes in these stories. But, again, this might get rid of the original idea, as people would be big or small, no matter their countries of origin. Plus, if the world has been this way for so many years, then it'd be kind of difficult to be half Cambodian, half Dutch, for example. I just thought that the kids of different (yet close enough) sizes would end up being in between.

Anyway, this was just to explain what I had in mind when doing this. I really liked your comments, and I'll surely think about them more. Thanks again for taking the time.
