This was such a hilarious read. It grabs a hold of certain things I see in stories and it makes good-humored fun of them. I have great admiration for how you are able to write comedy with such ease. I don't know how to do funny. I have books on how to do it, but I still don't get it. I'll keep trying!
This is a wonderful series. I fully endorse it and hope there are more installments in the future.
The more I read, the more patterns and repetitions will occur to me, and then I'll have more to write about. People have already suggested great tropes and stand-bys to work with.

was fun. i didn't expect this to come back, people should laugh at this kind of world more like this
I agree! I'm not writing these to shame anyone. Well, maybe once a long time ago, but that was just my frustration with highly repetitive stories. And then I went on to write highly repetitive stories, too. I think it's useful to step back and examine the corpus and comment upon it (with affection!).

Don't forget the big brother who shrinks to a few inches tall, is found by his little sister who is now a giantess to him and then proceeds to pick on him because she's big and he is small.
That's a good one, that comes up so much. It definitely has an audience. In fact, I'll make a note to play with that one in the next cycle. Thanks!

I still love all of these, but this newest chapter was hysterical.
I go through these now wondering how many of the tropes you're poking fun of that I'm guilty of and, well, it's a little farther from zero than I'd like.
"said Yvonne, the dominatrix."
^burst out laughing at this part by the way.
Your awareness of all these things says your an astute reader who consumes a TON of size fiction. Fantastic as always maestro.
People seemed to really take to the Deconstructions, so I've never forgotten about them. I just wanted to pick a good one to return to them with, you know.
But yeah, you read enough of these stories, certain patterns begin to emerge. And don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with a trope. It's a valid storytelling device, but it's up to the writer to visit a familiar topic and put their fresh, unique spin on it. I certainly lean on favored themes, though I challenge readers to identify them.

How about the trope where a teenage boy who's so shy around girls, he doesn't even _try_ to ask one for a date. Unfortunately, one of the girls he fails to approach is a vain young witch who doesn't like boys ignoring her...for _any_ reason. So, she shrinks him!
Is that a common trope? I like that idea so much, I feel like I just want to develop that into a regular story!

Eh, the one about the abusive spouse, lots of people are perfectly free to leave but fear their spouse's reaction or think they can change their spouse's behavior.
Alright, I'm poking fun at myself here but how about you do one called "The Teenage Girl Who Takes High School Bullying Into Her Own Hands Because The Power System In The School Tells Her To Just Deal With It But Then It Turns Out The Girl Is Actually a Bloodthirsty Sadist" protip: This is literally the premise to every story I've ever written, sorry. But on a meta-level, honestly, high school principals and school boards do exactly jack shit about bullying.
Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, these stories are, like, 15 years old. My experience and perspective has changed since I first hacked these out, and I'd probably handle certain situations differently, like relationships and how adults behave. I just uploaded these in their original form without rewrite because some people remember them. I could totally add onto the series, however.

I got about a quarter of the way through the first chapter then laughed so hard I almost threw up. Great stuff.
That's an awesome endorsement. I'll take that.
