Height references

From: Anonymous

Comment: Okay, so we know how small the borrowers are to a normal-sized human, but being the weirdo I am, I had wandered how BIG humans must appear to borrowers just for fun! So I was doing some calculations (although I kinda figured you probably already did them) of how big regular humans would look to the borrowers.

So, on a 1/19 scale that you have them, for an adult borrower equivalent to be ranged between 5 foot to 6 foot (or 152.4 cm to 182.8 cm), they would be between 3.2-3.8 inches (or for the metrically inclined, 8.1-9.6 cm). Of course, Sam (and likewise Jacob) being 4 inches (10 centimeters), would be considered taller than most, meaning most borrowers wouldn’t even make the double digits in centimeter height.

This would mean that an adult human ranging between 5 ft-6ft/152cm-183cm, would appear to them as 95 to 114 feet (29 to 34.7 meters)!

So, with human (or formerly human-sized) characters that actually have a confirmed canonical height, they would probably appear to the canonical littles as followed (WARNING: some might be off):

Dean Winchester (6’0): 114 feet/(183cm)34.7 meters
Sam Winchester (6’4): 120.2 feet/(193cm)36.6 meters
Bobby Singer (5’11): 112.2 feet/(180cm)34.2 meters
John Winchester (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
Jacob Andris (6’5): 122 feet/(195.5cm)/37.2 meters
Sherlock Holmes (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
John Watson (5’6): 104.5 feet/(167.6cm)31.7 meters
Stan Baker (6’0): 114 feet/(183 cm)34.7 meters
Mycroft Holmes (6’1):115.5 feet/(185.4cm)35.2 meters

There’s a strong chance I got some of the characters’ height wrong (ex. I don’t know if Dean’s 6’0 or 6’1), but the main gist they’re around that height give or take.

Now, to compare borrowers to humans without going into the specifics of the 2d4d or and height factors, the average length of a male middle finger would range around 3.7-4 inches for men between 5 and 6 feet. Of course, this isn’t exactly accurate due to genetic variables and the like, but it’s roughly there. Meaning most borrowers would be shorter than an middle finger or even the index finger. Heck, some of the REALLY shorter borrowers (like Oscar, Moira, and ESPECIALLY Kiddo Sam and Kara for example) wouldn’t even make it to classify as ankle-height to some of the taller humans!

To put this in perspective, if the Statue of Liberty walked off her base and put her arm down, she’d be 111’6 feet (34 meters) tall, making her shorter than most of the main human characters (who are already on the tall side). All of them would be taller than the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro since it is 98 feet/30 meters tall without the base. And an elephant (which can range from 9-13 feet/3-4 meters to the shoulder) would be like a chihuahua or any toy breed dog AT MOST. Or going off of fictional examples, a Gundam (usually around or 59.5-65 feet/18-20 meters) suited to a borrower scale would be the size of a young child at 3.57 feet or 1.06 meters.


Needless, to say, the borrowers/littles have my sympathies. They’re even smaller than the Mary Norton’s borrowers (who, at 1/12 scale, would mean a six inch borrower would be freakishly tall to your borrowers). Personally, I prefer your scale since it’d give them the ability for them to hide more easily and get away with more stuff lol. But boy do they have their work cut out for them just trying to survive!

Also, love your stories! Was just nerding our on scale differences!

This is amazing! Thank you so much for this!

We definitely have a few select heights worked out for the giant along with the borrower scale (Dean, Sam, Jacob, ect…), but not everyone, so I’m going to store this in our reference section! There can never be enough nerding out on the scale differences, tbh.

I feel bad for the borrowers, too, lol! Growing up I always like the 4 inches or smaller scale, but when I originally designed this story I wanted the borrowers to both be v v smol, but also able to be independent and able to survive without any assistance. 6 inches was always too big for me to really enjoy, and 4 inches seemed like a good compromise. Now it’s my official favorite scale! I tend to avoid writing stories that go larger, though occasionally I like adding in a third mini-giant scale (like in Jacob in Wonderland). 

As for Dean, we have him set at 6′1″, which gives him just enough height on Stan and Sherlock that he gets to strut.

Sam’s hands are pretty huge, so his fingers would be longer than all the borrowers. Dean’s aren’t small, either, so it’s hard to be tall enough to outsize his finger. Borrowers might be able to beat the length of regular-sized people’s fingers, at least. Those Winchesters (and Jacob!) run tall. 

Size Difference in Relationships

anonymous asked:

hi I’ve been a big fan of yours ever since I read your stories while you were still in the midst of posting Taken though it’s been more on the stories side and it’s only recently I’ve started reading through everything here so I don’t know if you’ve answered this before, but would you ever write a story where a borrower and a human are in a relationship? could be platonic romance or whatever you feel like but I’m just wondering

It’s so good to hear from you! Good luck going through our tumblr– it’s gotten a bit messy, but there’s a looooooot of stuff here for future stories/snippets/sneak peeks, along with tons of musing and prompts/asks. And all the wonderful arts :3 Not to mention the asks we get in, which are tons of fun answering.

As for relationships. Admittedly, all three writers for the BA multiverse are ace, so we don’t often delve too far in. That said, there are a few relationships that will be shown prominently in the story, and at least one or two will happen with the two people at different sizes!

Stan and Nate are one of our major couples, and being soulmates, they always tend to find their way to each other in the end. Yet with a few storylines we have plotted out, they don’t start or end up at the same size all the time!

Nate’s not going to let a little thing like size keep him from stealing a kiss!

As for same-size relationships, Dean’s had a fling in Brothers Lost with a borrower he encountered on a hunt, and in the last season of Brothers Apart, Sam will also be finding himself some love!

There’s plenty to look forward to 😉

Brothers Saved and growth spurts

anonymous  asked:

(brothers saved) what about when Sam hits his growth spurt and Dean can clearly see his hands and body growing larger

Dean is going to be so torn between upset that Sam’s friggin’ enormous, and the “my giant is bigger than you” mindset,  because you can bet he’s going to be smug as a peacock the second that Sam’s bigger than the person he’s arguing with!

A good look at the size difference between those two when they grow up! Done by the fantastic @wolfie180g

The smol doc

anonymous asked:

I was looking at varaciouspanda’s art in deviantart and i noticed you commissioned them to have a big ol dean being checked by a small john Watson. You ever going to do anything with that?

You bet we will be! (Though it’s Sam and not Dean in the pic)

We commissioned this picture of big Sam and tiny John Watson doctoring him, and there are plans in the works for a future story with these two (and of course some others).

Once @borrowedtimeandspace escapes from school, we have many plans we’ve been cooking up that we hope to get to, and I just had to commission voraciouspanda / @justanothergiant when they opened up commissions, they’re perfect at this style scene!

For anyone that hasn’t seen the art–

Sam’s looking pretty sick, and John’s gotta doc!

thepoisonlily asked:

Does (human) Dean ever buy a kindle or nook for (little) Sam so he can finally read books for fun again or does Sam just use the computer?

Dean hasn’t thought of it, and Sam doesn’t know they exist yet.

Kindles didn’t really become ‘mainstream’ until 2007, and it was a few years after that where they really became popular. Brothers Apart, like Supernatural, starts in 2005, so Dean still has a flip phone during the first few years, and they’re operating on a bulky laptop that he’s had for quite some time.

Sam does take the time to look up books on the computer when he can, and he’s gotten half decent at not getting stuck in books if they start to flip closed on him (Dean’s had to rescue him more than once during research). 

It’s just around 2007 as Brothers Apart enters season 3, which is where we left off during the season finale.

A chance meeting between Dragon!Dean and Giant!Jacob

Poor Dean thought he was pretty big and strong at 51 feet tall… till
he met a 122 ft tall teenager in the woods that’s big enough to carry
him around like a pampered pet!
Good thing Jacob is pretty mellow
about meeting a mythical fire breathing beast in the woods. He’s pretty
new to the Supernatural, and he suspects that hanging out with his own
Sam and Dean he’ll see a bit more.

Dragon!Dean grows to 51 feet in his own story, my first fanfic
Dragon!Dean is still scared of heights
and Giant!Jacob is from Bigfoots A Hoax
from @neonthewrite and @nightmares06

@nightmarejasmine !!!

From the ask on this post, the size difference between dragon Dean and the giant Jacob from Bigfoot’s a Hoax!

November 29th excerpt:

The next toss, his paper clip sailed upward, higher than Jacob had managed before. A quiet clink accompanied it landing atop the nightstand.

“Ha!” he said triumphantly. Despite his own weariness, he made it. He looked aside at Dean. “Did you see– oh,” he stopped, finally noticing that Dean had fallen asleep right there on the floor.

How much bigger would be Dragon!Dean would be compared to giant!Jacob

I had to get some figures from @wolfie180g for this, since Dragon!Dean is in their personal playground.

Let’s see… When Jacob’s a giant, he stands about 122 feet tall (19x his usual 6′5″). 

Dragon Dean will end up reaching about 50 feet from the ground to his head. 30 feet tall in the chest (measured like a horse). Wingtip to wingtip, he’ll have a 130 foot wingspan.

So, compared to Jacob, Dean will be quite a bit smaller. He’s more like a wolf compared to the giant.

G/T Prompts Day 8

borrowedtimeandspace:

8. Jar – Stan has a wake-up call.

AU: ???


Stan couldn’t breathe.

He thought seeing the world from only a few inches tall had been amazing, and after he climbed down his bedspread to the floor, he was all set on exploring the alien landscape his bedroom had become.

Then the ground, the very air, everything began to shake. Steady vibrations rattled the floor under Stan’s feet and froze him in place. Sharp impacts on the massive shut door made him flinch, and he clapped his hands over his ears as a tremendous voice rumbled through it.

Panic rose within the teen as it sank in. Someone was looking for him, and they were enormous.

His imagination took it from there, disregarding the logic that whoever it was out there was one of Stan’s brothers, his family. Instead, Stan was paralyzed by images of giants as they’d always been portrayed in films and stories, vicious creatures who meant harm to those smaller than them.

These overwhelming fears came to a head when he saw the door open ever so slightly, and Stan jumped behind the nearest thing to hide, hardly noticing that it happened to be a discarded shoe that was now taller than he was.

Stan’s heart pounded too loudly in his ears to process what the giant was saying, but he certainly felt the wave of displaced air when the door swung open, the earth-shattering footsteps that followed. Humongous feet stomped closer and swung right past Stan’s hiding spot in only a handful of steps.

A hand shot up to cover Stan’s mouth, quieting his heavy breathing and stifling the dread-filled cries he could feel creeping up his throat. The giant’s feet were right there and Stan was completely exposed, it could notice him at any moment! He needed to find a new hiding spot, and he glanced around the corner of the shoe to find one.

If he could just made it under the dresser in the distance…

November 14th excerpt:

“So, how do we get this started?”

Now,” Dean said pointedly, his grin broadening, “you get the biggest honor of all.”

With a grandiose gesture, Dean waved towards the floor near the agent’s feet. “You get to offer me a lift to the floor so we can get this party started.”
