Ambition of story advice (take the big risks or write the simple story)

2021.12.09 10:50 Some_Kind_of_Fan Ambition of story advice (take the big risks or write the simple story)

I have written three very different first drafts of this YA fantasy and am at a loss. There are two paths I can take.
Path 1 is fully ambitious. There are two alternating stories of a group of high school students, the first in the present in a fantasy castle minus all the cools stuff and how they try to escape it and the second in the past about how they, a group of totally normal high school students, got mixed up in a magical battle between Merlin and Faust that's been going on for centuries that leads to them being trapped in the castle. The present story is darker (they've been trapped for six years without aging, seeing other humans, entertainment, etc) and told in the voice of the protagonist while the past story is more exciting, brighter, and told from the alternating perspectives of the six characters as they write it out in their own voices for the others to read. The castle/escape story focuses more on the psychological toll of isolation and shows through the alternating narratives how these characters have grown. The goal is to get the past and present stories to match in pacing and development and mirror each other. This path is super ambitious with so many moving parts and changes in perspective, tense, voice, that I worry that I'm taking way too big a swing for the story.
Path 2 is a traditional linear story in a close third perspective focusing mostly on the protagonist with the other five characters given far less depth outside of how the protagonist views them. It's just the story of the Merlin/Faust drama and the teens having to fight back to save the world. It doesn't involve the six years in the castle but is a more standard/traditional story that will be significantly easier to write and more palatable to most audiences (not in the sense of one-day publishing, but I would prefer that the people who read the thing when it's done enjoy that experience). It's probably more in tune with where I'm at now as a writer as far as capabilities and experience.
Of the two, the former is the more exciting and challenging path as a writer. But, of the drafts I've done, I'm losing threads in the middle. Maybe hardcore outlining and drafting will have to happen to make it work at all, something this pantser has little experience with. The latter story has its own resonance with me, though, in that I can focus more on the character interactions and growth as there's more room to breathe. Basically, I'm asking for any advice from those of you who have experience writing complicated stories with many characters (how do you do it?) or anyone who's had to make this type of choice before and what perspective you have on it. Thank you!

I don’t know if this is the case for anyone else but I’ve become so used to dpdr that when I have flashes of being normal I get extremely anxious and my heart starts racing. Because I’m so used to this feeling of not feeling like myself and like I’m in a dream. Has this happened to anyone else?

2021.12.09 10:50 GabeSter Is it time to finally admit that ADA likely has no future and could be a dead project?

As we all know Over the last 70 days the wider market has bounced back from the September crash and BTC seems content (for now) around 50K.
Yet over the past two+ months, ADA has continued to fall - it's down 10.5% in the past 7 days, 35% in the past month and 43% in the past 90 days.
Yes, ADA has been here since 2015, but ever since the ADA smart contracts came out the price has just been continuing to drop. People turned to Solana, instead, as well as other utility coins like AVAX, etc, etc.
I’m not a holder of ADA but as the price continues to drop it risks being knocked out of the top 10 where Doge is waiting to take back its spot in the top 10. What does everyone think?
