We Come From Somewhere This Was Real

My review of We Come From Somewhere This Was Real, a collection of size fantasy stories by Aborigen. Links to the book at the bottom.


This is a fine sampler of both Aborigen’s range and his facility with smut. Almost all the encounters are F/m in configuration, but a rewarding variety of perspectives is explored. This buffet approach demonstrates a depth to size fantasy that a curious newbie might otherwise miss. No author could feature every aspect of size fantasy over five stories or fifty, but Aborigen’s versatility with characters and scenarios establishes both the plausibility and the desirability of any encounter one might suggest.

Three of Aborigen’s stories here impressed me deeply. “They Make Great Pets” is the only one with a female protagonist: Luna, a single woman who takes in a handful of tinies and gives them shelter and food. Like all the stories in this collection, little or no time is spent explaining how or why size-difference exists in this scenario. Instead, we get to know Luna and watch her relationships with her pets develop dramatically but coherently through many gratifying stages. Aborigen’s characterization is at its best here.

I had previously read “The Giant, His Prize, and Her Lover” in another venue, and I distinctly remember Aborigen relating how writing it took him outside his comfort zone. It starts from a perspective familiar to longtime readers of Aborigen: a tiny man (Ulysses) devoted to his giant mistress (Rosann). It enters unfamiliar territory when we learn that Rosann herself lives the life of a tiny woman, kept by an even larger giant (Blacwin) who took her from her homeworld. Blacwin at last learns of Ulysses’s existence, and Rosann decides that her two men need to reconcile themselves to each other. In addition to the challenge of inhabiting the possessive Blacwin, Aborigen has to portray Rosann as what the size community has called (borrowing from the BDSM community) a “switch.” The dialogue between the two men veers between the bawdy and the philosophical and back, and Aborigen does justice to all parties. I don’t know if this version of the story is more polished than the first time I read it, but it somehow seems more at peace with itself.

The final story, “No Good Deeds,” is the longest in the collection and features the most protracted and detailed sexytimes. Striving academically at the public library, Elvin lets his idle lusts drive him to speak to Joellen, a tall woman having difficulty with one of the terminals. His reward is that she shrinks him without consent or explanation and takes him home for her amusement. As with Short Shrift, Aborigen is undaunted by the idiosyncratic logistics of mixed-size sex, and he is very resourceful in repeatedly immersing the reader in the sensations and emotions of a tiny man at the mercy of a reckless woman. High replay value in this one.

While the tropes Aborigen invokes are familiar to this veteran size fantasist, he does not rely on them so precariously that a normie reader would feel confused or neglected. This collection is a wealth of thrills, passionately and meticulously realized. By following his curiosity and appetites wherever they lead him, Aborigen is inspiring as well as entertaining.

What’s It To You?

A Strange Couple by Lord Xarnor

Why do we share our size fantasies with others, and why do we care what others enjoy in size fantasy? I suppose everything on this blog is an attempt to answer one or both of these questions, but a couple of recent posts have me looking at them with renewed urgency. Aborigen asked himself what he still hopes to achieve with his size writing, and in one of those recurring “What would you really do?” threads on the Shrunken Women Board Azureeyes talked about the importance of hearing about the real people behind the fantasy. I’ve been watching the online size scene for 25 years and an active participant for almost a decade and I still don’t know exactly why I keep returning to it.

Short Shrift

My review of Short Shrift, an F/m story by Aborigen. Links to the story at the bottom.


This was an excellent read and a good wank. It’s an extended treatment of a single encounter that one might expect to end much more abruptly and gruesomely. A number of distinct sexual activities are depicted in compelling detail, and Aborigen makes the reader feel every secretion and clench. Aside from the variations, what keeps the physical descriptions from becoming tedious is the frequent interweaving of the two characters’ inner narratives. This is key, of course; we care about the smut because we care about the characters, and Aborigen takes the time to establish them for us.

The introductory perspective is that of Candice, the instructor of an exercise group. She gives us our first look at the two main characters (in whose perspectives we will spend the rest of the story), and she is also important in that she is the only knowing agent of the size change that makes the plot possible. I actually would have liked more foreshadowing of this, as it otherwise seems too out-of-the-blue, particularly for the non-fetishist reader.

Fortunately, both Melanie the novice exercise student and Rickey the misogynist predator are sufficiently recognizable and well-developed that when the size change occurs their responses ground it in realism. Crucially, neither Melanie nor Rickey react predictably or implausibly to the bizarre circumstances they find themselves in. We get our fetish itches scratched, not because either Melanie or Rickey seek them out, but because they honestly explore who we already know them to be.

Aborigen is in fine form here, with sophisticated streams of consciousness and wicked observations. Most gratifyingly, he is unsparing in both sensual detail and emotional depth. I don’t identify with either Melanie or Rickey, but I’ve now inhabited both of them, separately, during one of my most obsessing fetish scenarios. An abiding delight.

The Queen’s Education

Before the Internet revealed all of us to each other and encouraged us to make size content by size pervs for size pervs, we had to mentally “repurpose” mainstream size content. Such sources were usually sci-fi or horror or, tediously often, children’s entertainment. Here follows my ribald extrapolation from The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, which I imagined took place after Gulliver cures the Queen but before his witch trial.

Size Sex Work

Growing Vexes and Interest by ExuberantCurtain

I haven’t done nearly enough reading to have a full understanding of the history of sex work and the roles it has played in various societies over the millennia, and I would be very grateful for reading recommendations in the comments. In the meantime, I would like to discuss current attitudes and practices regarding sex work as they apply to the size fantasy community. Specifically, I would like to examine what is okay and not okay when approaching creators and others and how to calibrate one’s expectations. This is very obviously a discussion in process, and I am open to being corrected, clarified, and educated. Please respond with your thoughts below.

I bring all this up because when you tell someone how they should participate in the size community (create certain content, play certain roles), you are demanding that they perform sex work for your gratification.
