Okay, so I have these two futuristic m/m stories, both of which I'd like to expand when the current rights run out, and I need major help deciding which one to work on first.
One is set on Earth, a couple hundred years in the future, after the Big Climate Change destroys civilization as we know it. This story is called "Dragon's Kiss" and will be out in the print zine Forbidden Love in the upcoming Sacred Bands issue (don't know the release date for sure, sorry).

The other story, "Into The Black," first appeared in issue #1 of Forbidden Love and will soon be making an encore appearance in the free gay fiction ezine Forbidden Fruit. This story was described by one reviewer as "an intergalactic Sopranos" which is pretty much on the money *g* It's gritty and a bit dark, but with a happy ending. It's set on a space station orbiting Pluto, at an unnamed date in the future, after the Earth has become uninhabitable.
I'd like to expand both these stories into novel-length, but I don't know which to tackle first. What do y'all think? Post-apocolyptic Earth society, or space opera? Help me pick!
