Get small is the name of a primitive magic spell used by the inexperienced witch Chasing Midnight in the short story named after her, in the On The Long Run story arc.

While the spell "had no real physical effect" it would addle the perceptions of observers, making Chasing Midnight harder to notice and to remember. She used it at least twice in the city of Rue to escape unwanted attention. First, she "got small" to aid her escape from the scene of the killing of the thug called Monkey Butt outside the Silent Owl tavern. Later, she used the same spell to hide from the frightening sorcerer called Black Shroud in his abandoned fabric mill. In this instance she also layered it with keep-off-me, another primitive sorcery. It seemed to work, as Black Shroud did not notice her at that moment.
