It's day one of and I haven't yet settled on my plot. Please help me decide between my favourite two! The first is a murder(?) mystery in a traditional Western fantasy setting but subverted with a lot of Noir tropes. The second is the story of a guild of folk looking after public green spaces in a very-nearly-solarpunk utopia
