i just wanted to try the static tv thing

The Lantern

So, a couple of months ago, I (Mod Morgan) wrote this as part of my English class portfolio. We were told to try writing something outwith our standard comfort zone, and it was suggested I try writing romance. This was around the point where I started getting super into this blog, so, the following was meant to be a love story with just a dash of my own personal flair for the weird. Hope you enjoy it!

House Guest (part 2)

(Captain Boomerang x Reader)

You drop a bag full of stuff into his lap and sit down next to him on the couch. You figured it’d be best to buy a bit more cause you sure as hell weren’t going out again for him. The thought of going to the police had crossed your mind but for some reason you hadn’t done it in the end.

„Just out of curiosity, how long are you planning to stay?“ You ask him, hoping he’d be gone rather quick.

„Few days.“ He says while going through the bag you gave him with a bright smile, „Thanks, luv.“

„Yeah sure.“ You take in your breath and sigh deeply. Watching TV with a wanted criminal wasn’t what you had planned for the weekend, „Just so you know, you’re sleeping on the couch.“

„I already slept in your bed once so it’s basically mine, too. Why do I have to take the couch?“ He replies without any hesitation.

„Sleeping in it once doesn’t make it yours and you seriously should stop sleeping in other peoples beds!“

„Not big on sharing, eh?“

„maybe I would be if you asked nicely instead of just taking what you want.“ You say, rolling your eyes at him.

„Ya do realize that I’m a thief?“

„God you’re getting on my nerves…can’t I trade you for one of the other bad guys? Preferably someone quiet and less annoying.“

„Sure if I get to trade ya for a naked and less grumpy version of yourself.“


He laughs at your response before turning his attention back to the TV, watching the news that are just starting. You lean back into the cushions and, focusing your attention on the TV as well while trying to ignore the rude stranger invading your living room at the moment. Sometimes you just had to accept things as they were and you figured this was one of these situations.

As always, the static noise had made you sleepy and your eyes were feeling heavy. You just wanted to close them for a minute but actually fell asleep the second you closed them. Your head was slowly sliding down until it came to a rest when it hit his shoulder.

Digger looks over in confusion when you suddenly bump into him. He furrows his brows, seeing you sleeping next to him. He did say he wouldn’t hurt you but then again he was a criminal and not the honest type. You were a bit too trustworthy of him and slept, seemingly without a care in the world.

He shook his head and smiled while watching you. Normally people were on their guard around him, yet here you were at his complete mercy of your own free will.

„Strange girl…“ He mumbles before picking you up and carrying you over to the bedroom. He laid you down and threw the blanket over your body.

When you opened your eyes in the morning you weren’t quite sure how you had gotten here, the last thing you remembered was a shitty gaming show. You turn around and see Digger lying across your bed, almost taking the whole bed for himself. No wonder your back hurt with the little space you had to sleep in.

You lean over and watch him for a moment with curiosity. It was almost a miracle, you had half expected to wake up to an empty apartment. When you see him move you quickly jump off the bed and get up before he catches you staring at him.

You have!  I’m a little confused whether you wanted to remain annon or not, but I can answer one of those questions right away because i’d like to try and draw my responses for the other questions. 

8: Do you prefer your tiny/giant to have a static height or to be able to change size?

 I want my tiny/giant to be able to change size. TV Tropes calls that ability “Sizeshifter” and they explain it pretty well. If there’s another term for it, then I don’t know it yet. The thing is…it depends on how the author represents the ability.

If the person just changes their size instantly and shoots up 50ft, like how Alice in Wonderland does with a piece of food, then it’s not that impressive. Meh, okay, you’re super tall now. Now if their ability is presented in a sequence, then you have my full attention. I like to immerse myself in the situation- make me do a double take. Take me on a roller coaster of emotions and build up that anticipation. Have us both experience the effects of a size change. 

Beyond the Future ~ Camus Tetra Porte ~

Static height is fine because of the size difference, but you can totally tease someone with the ability to change size. 


My favorite manga, although not a G/t story, is a good example. Although it’s age progression, the protagonist has to deal with a boy that can change size if he is left in the dark. Even her pet dogs grow into giants when this occurs. At first these two are struggling to deal with this curse, but later on the male favors this ability to use around the protagonist. 

It’s four volumes long, a sappy love story between a prince and a high school girl, but I just love it because the character changes size a lot. There aren’t any giants, but it does have a fairy that later grows into a human. There’s even a one-shot where the protagonist shrinks herself.
