Pondering if the theme would be better served with a narrower, interpersonal focus than my initial concept. I thought the story would be fairly epic and heroic—good guy vanquishes the uber evil and saves the world—but I think what I'm trying to say might be better expressed by two people learning something about each other in a wacky world.
Definitely would be shorter if I go that route, which is always a plus. But it's gonna be a bear trying to pull it off without some major narrative info dumping since detailed aspects of the setting are vital to the theme.
