T2 Trilogy novels
- (accelerated growth APed) Appearances: "T2: Infiltrator", "T2: Rising Storm".
Alissa was the second I-950 Infiltrator created to ensure the creation of Skynet. Alissa had the appearance of a 6-year-old human when she was only 6 months old. Her parthenogenesis and clone maturation proceeded at the normal parameters of I-950 development, but she was prematurely deployed after only achieving a physical appearance of 15 in an attempt to terminate Sarah Connor. One of Alissa's few human interactions during her maturation process occurred when she was still a young child. A pedophile filmmaker attempted to abduct her, but her cybernetic implants were able to overcome the chloroform and allowed her to terminate her assailant. When his partner came in, she made short work of him as well.
Clea Bennet's clone maturation was artificially accelerated beyond the normal parameters of I-950 development, going through the process up to 5 times. This overly rapid development may have caused some neurological damage during her growth stages that she suspects is impairing her capabilities.

The lines deepened, her hair thinned and turned grey. Her skin wrinkled. She was old...the other cylinder and looked inside. The woman lying there was beautiful but not young, or rather she was getting younger every second. Her skin began to smooth out. Her cheeks plumped. The crow's feet under her eyes disappeared and the lines on each side of her mouth vanished. Her hair was thick and blond and her face was radiant. She was in the prime of her life...

Tapestries
- (AR scene?) "Magic: The Gathering" book, p.109.

Tara the Forbidden Fruit
- (AP scene) Simon Roach, 2004.
- P23: Some two feet from these arch musicians squatted a young dark skinned woman vigorously twirling a long calabash.
...before La Veanna, who was evidently the high priestess or voudou queen. She made cabalistic signs over them and the new born child, and sprinkled them vigorously with liquid from a calabash in her hand, muttering under her breath.
- P24: ...the name of an African sect, "Voudou Magnian."
The new born female was then placed out of sight from the voices by the High Priestess La Veanna. By some unknown supernatural powers by her, a spell was placed...
- P25: ...upon the newborn. La Veanna was over a hundred years of age, blind and soon would be replaced. The chorus of Tara's yell had entered the mad shouts of Africa. Then came a general call for dance, as the newborn began to mature before their eyes! The baby's body began the change at an alarming rate, turning, bending and stretching to grow against nature itself.
Suddenly there was an appearance of engulfing bizarre reddish like smoke, which swilled wildly about her coming from nowhere. There seemed to be flashes of self contained lighting from within its being. Then smoke appeared from below a once barren spot of earth ... until it suddenly shielded her completely from all view.
Up sprang Tara!
She was a magnificent specimen of human flesh. A leggy, tall, smooth skinned woman with long damp hair appeared. She was wrapped just in a wisp of silky orange fabric draped against her body, exquisitely sensual.
...an unholy scream ... like a howling from a wild animal came from her.
With her body waving and undulating like the quadroon man's snake a perfect Semiramis from the jungles of...
- P26: ...Africa. The baby was now totally transformed into a grown woman of 24 years of age, if not in mind. Confining herself to a spot not more than two feet in space, Tara began to sway on one and the other side.
This was a signal, for the whole assembly sprang forward and entered the dance wildly.
Under the passion of hours, the women tore off their garments, and entirely nude, continued dancing, as if they were snakes wriggling. Above all of this, the orgies would have become frightful for any outsiders. Brushing Tara's beautiful black hair, La Veanna stared at her chosen replacement from birth.

"Your daughters are becoming women," Kim Li said, kicking her long legs rhythmically through the meal. She wore her blue school shorts which fitted tightly above the thighs and stretched across the bottom, flattening the weight which ballooned curiously around her tall skinny frame.
Her legs, like her chest, were skinny, almost fleshless. They were long and shapeless; the knees bumped out like rock-outcroppings, and the ankles rose to meet the backs of her knees with hardly a suggestion of calf. In the tight shorts she didn't appear feminine or provocative, merely unbalanced, as if the fat around the hips and bottom were merely a growth , a goiter draped on the lean trunk.
"How dare you come to the table like a half-naked slut!"
"What I wear is what you give me."
... "Maybe tomorrow we can go over the cost of some new clothes. The girls can shop for some cheap..."

Moreover, Masha was no longer a child. She straightened her long black braids, the sole adornment of her person, and one which ill became her short, outgrown dress. Her long red hands stuck far out of her short sleeves. She kept pulling her sleeves down over her wrists, but when one sleeve yielded the other would slide upwards, thus engaging her in a constant struggle.
The wind played havoc with Masha's braids and raised her short skirt high, revealing altogether too much of her shapely legs. Masha fought with the wind, now thrusting down her skirt to cover her legs, now pulling down her sleeves to warm her hands.

A 3-foot blond obstacle is thrown in his path: 6-year-old human girl, Isuzu Trooper Cassidy. At first he thinks "midnight snack," but before the sun comes up, Isuzu is the one snacking on his prized cereal collection as she charms him into staying undead long enough to raise her in a world rife with danger and almost entirely populated by vampires yearning for the taste of real human blood. Unwilling to vamp her (child vampires, aka "screamers," tend to be disturbed individuals), Martin opts instead to provide a good home for the child until she attains adulthood. I'm not sure how much logic I can suspend to really let slide the fact that a child can be cooped up for nearly 12 years straight with only limited freaky television and a couple hours with her guardian for company and not end up utterly insane.

Veronica
(old age, age stasis, AR) Nicholas Christopher. Leo meets Veronica, the beautiful, enigmatic daughter of an illusionist.
p242: With each passing second, Viola's youthful face grew paler. Her forehead narrowed. Wrinkles appeared: single, then multiple, grooves along her brow, crow's feet around her eyes, and spidery lines that fanned around her cheeks. As if we were watching decades of film footage condensed and sped up, Veronica and I saw her twin age fifty years in fifteen seconds.
And there was Alta lying before us, white-haired, with sunken cheeks, incongruously dressed in the blue and black polka-dot dress that swam on her bony frame. Her eyes - the opposite of Veronica's, the right one green, the left blue - were nearly washed of their color.
She parted her lips, and for the first and only time spoke, after ten mute years, in a small, high voice.
A moment later, I saw Viola's image, stark naked, rise up out of Alta's body and disappear into the eastern sky, trailing a line of gold vapor.
...As Veronica laid Alta's head down on the tiles, her body had shrunk even further, until she was no larger than a child.
"...the night of May 4th ten years ago and this moment - merged. She came around from two different directions and met herself in time."
"And as a result of her shuttling across what we consider zones of time, she has remained the same age for the last ten years. She may continue to do so for some time. Or the aging process may at any time accelerate - or reverse itself. What is clear is that her physiological chronology has been altered. As for Albin White, he may well come back a Methuselah, or an infant."
"Do you mean that the travel will affect me as it's affected her?" I said.

Tess strode around the flat for a good twenty minutes, acquainting herself with the feel of having much longer legs.

"Geordie sees the illusion, but he can't feel it."
Maybe I'm just a little kid, but I only look like a little kid. I'm still the grown-up me inside this nine-year-old body.
In my present circumstances, he's at least twice my size and way stronger.
It's just a good old boy, and a priest and a cute little girl, holding her teddy bear.
"They're so old now," the priest said. "Why does the Good Lord let sweet little girls grow up, anyway?"
...too old for your tastes? Well you old perv, ... I can just make 'em younger.
I feel something happening...
"What the fuck?"
It's a little girl's voice. I glance at her, and see that she's small now. Younger. Eight, maybe nine years old. I lift my hands and they're a child's hands. I'm still the me I always was, but now I look like a little kid, just as Lizzie does. What has Del done to us?
"Fight this enchantment," the doonie says. "It's up to you how you appear in the otherworld - what shape you wear."
"He's just going to want to do dirty things with our little girls."
"Knock yourself out," he tells Father Cleary. "Me, I've got some unfinished business with little Jillian here."

"I hear you've been telling tales," he says. "And you know what happens to little girls with big mouths, right?"

Winds of the Moon: Tazarian Saga 5
(male AP) Kat Barrett.
"I read about this in the book that Jade sent.
I was marveling at what a wonderful tale it was, but never dreamed that Amaz was one of them. He is! He is really alive and about three cycles old. His breed of magic is called the Gift of the Chancle.
Chancle stands for Changling.
From what the book documented, it is a rare occurrence that happens to children of power who are conceived under extreme conditions of stress. The child is birthed with the power to change their age and growth rate. He can mature at a rate of about one cycle for each sun. This is accomplished though a sleep state that resembles death. I read the line about the body appearing dead, but still retaining its glow of power.
"Amaz is really alive?"
..."Three suns ago, I put our apparently dead infant into that chest. He climbed out of the same chest, three cycles old, while you watched."
..."I screamed, scrambled away from him and then passed out."
"...How old are you?"
"Three. I want to be old enough to go out and play in the white. I was too little before."
"...You have been three suns without food or water. Are you hungry?"
"No. I'm sleepy. The cold woke me up too soon ... Mommy opened chest and the door blew open. Very cold air."

Gabi Stevens.
- p84: "Magical transformation is a right of passage. We all go through it, only usually we're a lot younger because it hurts less as a child. To change into another form requires the bending of bones, the stretching of skin, the growing of hair or gills or whatever. Children are more resilient-so the first transformation usually occurs then. Unfortunately you're an adult."
"Unless you're a ballet dancer and incredibly flexible, it will hurt."
"But I'm shrinking, not transforming." Her skin popped as the wing buds pierced her skin. She winced and rolled her shoulders.
...as a fairy godmother you can't always serve your charges at your full size...
"I'm getting small, like Callie?"
All fairies can be as large as a human, but they also have the need to be small.
He hated to admit it, but she looked shorter. He took her hand. "This first time is nature taking control, helping your body accept the
- p85: change.
"So, ibuprofen?"
He went into the bathroom and retrieved two caplets and a glass of water.
"Here. Take these before they become too big."
"Right" She snatched them out of his hand and swallowed quickly. "How long does this change thing last?"
...Around six to eight hours. And you won't feel like doing much afterward. Transfiguration is exhausting. Especially the first time. ..."
"Thanks for the news flash." She looked up at the ceiling. "It hasn't been that far away since I was ten."
- p337: She didn't know how much longer she could hold the transfiguration.
The problem was if she tried to conserve her energy by changing back to her full size, she'd have no clothes. Okay, that wasn't a real problem, but she didn't need to make Jake more uncomfortable than he already was. Not to mention how much harder escaping the attention of the bad guys would become if she were full-size. But if she weighed how much less energy she'd expend against staying small, the option seemed clear.
"I need the sheet from the bed. Can you get it for me?"
"Can you hold it up above your head and keep it there until I take it from you?"
"Perfect. Now, no peeking. I'm going to get big again." She landed on the floor and waved her wand
- p338: over herself. A moment later the first popping of her bones announced her transformation. As fast as she could, she peeled off the tiny dress already beginning to constrict her. She hoped she had taken enough ibuprofen.
"My arms are getting tired," said Jake.
"Just a little bit more," she said. "Hang in there."
A minute later she grabbed the sheet and wrapped it loosely around her.
"Wow, you're bigger." Jake watched her.
"And I'm not done yet." She attempted a smile through the pain. She adjusted the sheet around herself as she grew taller.
Three minutes later the transformation had finished. The sheet hung like a loose toga around her. She tugged on a corner and found another corner to tie it to. Not the most comfortable, but it would suffice. Her breath was labored and her legs wobbled beneath her, but the constant drain on her power vanished.
..."Boy, you were thirsty," Jake said...
"Jake, I need to sit just for a little while. Just to catch my breath."

Wit'ch War
(AP) James Clemens, 2000. Book 3 in "The Banned and the Banished" novel series.
Elena is a 13 year old daydreaming girl. One day in the apple orchard, her hand turns blood red. Destined to ripen into the heritage of lost power, she goes on a journey to defeat the Dark Lord. An og're, 2 shapeshifting brothers, an el'vin and his moon'falcon head on separate quests toward Elena. After suddenly growing up, she can finally consummate her relationship. Only a few fragments could be extracted from Amazon:
119:
"Elena ... She's gone!" he said, his cheeks red with panic. "I found her clothes ... and ... and this!" Joach held forth a handful of bloody bandages. Er'ril took a deep breath, his fist...
129:
Yet her weak pallor was not what trapped Joach's breath. His sister's hair, once cropped short, now lay like a thick pillow of fiery curls under her head. Only the very tips still...
130:
Joach scrambled toward her, too stunned to call to the others. As he neared, he saw that even the nails of her fingers and toes showed the same miraculous growth. Her fingernails had spread into twisted corkscrews across her palms.
Yet her hair and nails were not all that had grown out. Joach tried not to stare at her naked form, but the changes were too shocking to look away.
Elena no longer bore the physique of a young girl whose womanhood beckoned. Her figure had blossomed and stretched into the full curves of a beautiful maiden. It was as if four winters of age had swept over her.
Joach quickly shrugged out of his shirt and wrapped her nakedness in the thick wool. It barely covered her. She must now be a good head taller than him. The motion stirred her.
"J-Joach?" she mumbled. Her eyelids fluttered with fatigue.
134:
He finally spotted Elena seated by the starboard rail. She sat with her knees pulled up, hugging her legs, her face buried in her arms. From her quaking shoulders, he knew she was weeping. He crossed to her with...
136:
...drew Joach's shirt tighter around her physique. "What's happened to me?
"Years were stolen from you and given to the staff. You've aged, Elena. In the moment it took you to create Joach's blood stag I estimate that you've aged at least four...
Her hands fumbled to her face, as if she wanted to feel the truth of his words, but her long nails made it difficult. "My hair ... my nails...
"It's as if you've slept for four winters and just ..."
She seemed wobbly on her legs. Er'ril was not sure how much was due to exhaustion and how much was due to the sudden increase in height. She would have to grow accustomed to her longer limbs and new physique...
Joach eyed his sister's height, then took her arm. He now had to glance up at his sister, where before it had been the opposite...
157:
Elena had trimmed her overgrown hair and nails and donned a set of Er'ril's clothes. With the change in her body, she could no longer pose as a...
161:
...he suddenly felt very conscious of the changes in her body. The fullness in hips and chest, the length and curl of her hair. Even her responses to him were no longer the same...
195:
She remembered his father and the joy they once shared, and her body still continued to transform. The rip of cloth and leather whispered in her ears. She ignored it, unashamed.

Elena had grown a head taller and fuller of figure. She was not the same girl who had combed and curried the mare since she..."

Witches of Karres series
Sorceress of Karres, The
(unseen AP/age shifting possibility) Eric Flint, Dave Freer, 2010. Goth vows she will marry Captain Pausert when she grows up.
"Yet... the witches did have some other avenues open to them. He knew that Threbus must be at least eighty years old by now. Yet he looked to be no more than in his mid-thirties. He also knew from what they had learned on Uldune that Toll too could change her age at will. Pausert cleared his throat and braced himself to ask, "Er. Toll. About age shifts..."
Toll turned back and raised one eyebrow at him, with a quizzical half-amused, half-dangerous expression on her face. "What?" she said, in a way that would have made most men say "oh nothing. Nothing at all." But Pausert was quite brave. Or quite stupid. He was not too sure which of the two he was being right now.
"I was wondering," he said, "about, well, the age shift thing."
Toll smiled. "Oddly enough, Goth's been raising the same subject lately. The answer is 'no,' Captain Pausert. Compared to Nikkeldepain our way of raising children may seem a little strange to you. Karres children are very independent. They have to be. But, captain, they are still children, and need to go through stages of development, just like any other child. There are a number of important formative experiences Goth still has to go through. We did not let our children go with you lightly, Captain Pausert. We have ways of knowing that you are absolutely trustworthy. And anyway, because of the parent-pattern in their heads, we're around in a way, even when we're not."
"I've always done my best for them all," he said. "And if you think that is best for Goth, then we will just have to let it all happen at its own speed."
Toll patted his shoulder. "And it will. Take a step back from it, if you can. Age shift is one of the things we don't teach the young witches. Every single child among them wants to be grown up instantly. What child doesn't? Well, we found that although they can cope very easily with the physical changes in their bodies, it's not the same with their minds. Only time seems to achieve that properly." She cocked her head slightly and smiled. "See, it wouldn't just be an older Goth... my middle daughter is quite an old soul in a young body sometimes. But can you imagine what it would be like if the Leewit could suddenly choose to be grown up, or at least have a grown-up body?"

"Got to do that to yourself." Goth shook her head regretfully. "It's too bad I can't do an age-shift yet, like Toll and Threbus ... could you do a shape-change that imitates an age-shift? ... I think so. ... the Leewit looked to be a little blonde girl of somewhere between three and four."

Wither's Legacy
(accelerated growth AP, preteen TF abilities) John Passarella.
p49:
Karen Glazer sat in an uncomfortable hospital chair, staring at her amazing little daughter, too big and yet too small all at the same time.
...one would never know what she'd been through in the two-plus years since her birth.
p50:
"...they'll never find anything Art. What's the point?
Science and medicine haven't caught up...
Of course she was talking about Hannah's rapid aging and physical development...
p113:
I visualize Hannah shining a supernatural mirror back on her future self and the Crone is the image that bounces back to our time.
p118:
While not overly modest about nudity, Abby was embarrassed by the idea of anyone watching her transform from wolf to girl or vice versa. No doubt she remembered his disturbed reaction when he'd witnessed a partial change - hand to paw. With his back turned, he heard the unsettling array of sounds involved in her transformation without any visual context, which was enough to open a dark door in his imagination. After a few moments of squishing, cracking, and muffled crunching, combined with Abby's short moans and grunts of effort, the sheriff squeezed his eyes shut, as if that could somehow lessen the enormity of what was happening a few yards behind him.
"All done," she said. "You can toss me my clothes now."
The sheriff turned a bit, enough to see her squatting with the blanket wrapped around her naked, shivering body, clutched to her throat. He tossed the plastic bag of clothes at her feet and averted his gaze while she dressed herself.
Without the insulating wolf fur, she was vulnerable to cold, just like a normal girl.
p152:
...this reactivated spell somehow affected Hannah and Kyla?
p210:
By the calendar, Hannah was just over two years old, but physically and mentally she seemed ready for second grade.
Other children just wouldn't understand or accept Hannah, for...
p211:
...whom the phrase "growth spurt" was an understatement.
Sometimes it seemed to Karen that she could measure Hannah's height before breakfast and by bedtime detect a noticeable change. Her child's mental development was as impressive. Whatever class she was placed in would soon fall behind her. A teacher in a busy classroom would never give Hannah all the attention she required to stay interested. Yet new clothes and new lessons were minor problems.
Life would be so much simpler if they could just slow Hannah down to normal. Though medical science was unable to stop Hannah's accelerated growth, Karen hoped that Wendy would someday find the secret spell Rebecca Hutchins had placed...
p351:
Alex was accustomed to keeping Wendy's and Windale's secrets. Abby's secret shape-shifting life probably seemed one more aspect of that.
Abby looked like a girl trying on her mother's clothes, pretending to be a grown-up. Would a ten-year-old girl who can turn into a wolf or a hawk have the slightest fascination with high heels and lipstick?
"You won't think I'm a freak, like the kids at my school would, if they knew."
"I've been trying to shift into a bird for like, forever," Abby said, with an appropriate but unconscious flapping of her big sleeved arms to accompany her enthusiasm. "First, I tried forcing the change, making wings and feathers. Ugh, what a mess! Almost turned myself into a pretzel, instead of a bird."

Wither's Rain
(accelerated growth) John Passarella 2003. "To look at her walking confidently and learning to count, one would think the little girl was 3 years old. Karen knew better. Hannah Nicole Glazer was less than 7 months old. Other than her accelerated development, the doctors could find nothing wrong with her, pronounced her perfectly healthy."

"And I was growing taller and bigger every day. Twice I got stuck in the bend of the passageway that led to the attic."
"...little pink bumps on my chest and hundreds of big red bumps on my face. I gained weight in unexpected places. Hair grew where no hair should grow,.."
"Then I climbed into a clean nightgown Kirsty had outgrown. All of my own clothes had shrunk mysteriously. They were painfully tight around the chest, and the bottoms of the leggings had climbed halfway up my shins."
"On the contrary, I had to let out the seams of my first suit of new clothes while I was still working on the last. I could no longer reach the old..."
"She stands sideways in front of the mirror in the hall, studying her chest. And sure enough, there are two little bumps there..."
"...and had dragged it downstairs for dressup. They took turns trying and failing to cram their huge feet and waists into the tiny shoes and gowns."

When they cantered up to his house they ranged from age nine for Cheline down to age six for Chel."
... suddenly they were twenty years old, full grown. They gazed at each other, awed. "We're beautiful," Melody said.

Xanth series
Two to the Fifth
(AP, RN) Piers Anthony.
- p104 - ...a person one decade, for an hour."
- (APed to age 17) She adjusted her dress, which fit her somewhat tightly now. In fact rather more bosom showed than was usual, as it strained at the girl-sized bodice lacing.
- p110 - "I [would be] old enough at seventeen to understand my feeling. I'd do anything you wanted me to, even if I don't understand it, age no barrier."
She made a little gesture, as of opening her shirt. "Please, Cyrus, take me. My body isn't quite there yet, but my spirit is." Her blush had become furious; she knew she was making a forbidden offer.
He was appalled. "But you're a child!"
"Are you rejecting me, after I bared my secret heart at you?"
"Of course I am. I would never touch a child. The Adult Conspiracy forbids it."
"Even though you now know I'm really more like seventeen?"
"You would have to be seventeen in mind and body to have any right to do what you ask."
...any woman spurned was dangerous, and a sorceress especially so, regardless of her age.
Then the vapor cleared. Rhythm had activated another decade spell. Now she was 22, lovely and wild-haired. "Oh, my," Cyrus breathed, awed by the transformation.
"I'm not a child anymore," she said. "Am I?"
"N-No. But-"
"Now I have much the same body I had at 17. This dress is way too tight," she said. She ripped it open and dropped it on the ground. Her bra and panties were splitting at the seams, and she ripped them off too, letting her abruptly mature body spring to its full unfettered dimensions. It wasn't just her flaming red hair that was wild; it was her whole personality.
She stood resplendently, defiantly nude.
Cyrus freaked out. He stood immobile, unable to rip his gaze from her remarkable body. It might exist only for an hour, but it overwhelmed him. This was the very image of his Perfect Woman. Doubly dangerous because he knew she was really a child, despite what she said.
- p144 - She must have invoked the Decade spell... Why?
"So they don't separate us, dear," Rhythm replied to his thought, squeezing his hand...
- p157 - She brought out the Decade spell and invoked it before he could protest. Her loose dress became tight in places before she remembered and changed its size.
- p184 - "But you know she has that Decade spell, that can age a person 10 years, for an hour."
"I know. I tried it, remember. Otherwise I might be jealous."
- "Suppose it is somehow accelerating? So that it didn't stop at a decade." He hesitated. "Rhythm, you're still beautiful, but you look older."
She fetched a small mirror from somewhere. It couldn't have been a pocket, because she remained beautifully nude. "Oh, my! I am old! I look 23 or 24!"
Or 25 or 26. "If time is moving faster, it would mean that maybe the stork did take 9 months to deliver the baby, and now she's a year or so older."
Rhythm went to lift Kadence out of the basket, but the child was already crawling over the rim on her own. She went on hands and knees, then got tired of that, and lifted unsteadily to her feet. She was walking!
As they watched, the child became steadier on her feet, visibly growing. She was now a toddler, 2 or 3 years old. She was wearing a little dress. Had that been in the basket too?
"You're locked into adulthood," Cyrus said. "I love that, but it's dangerous. At this rate you'll soon grow too old for me."
"I'll never be that!" But she looked worried.
- He picked her up. She was now 3 or 4 years old, a healthy child.
