Your plot should make even you a little uncomfortable. Cherish that discomfort, because it means you’re digging in the witch’s garden.

'Digging in the witch's garden'. I like that.


meaning: exquisite, odd

妙案 == myouan  == (noun)  ingenious idea, excellent plan, bright idea
妙手 == myoushu == (noun) expert, virtuoso, master

Left radical is 'woman' (女). Right radical is 'few, little' (少), which acts phonetically to express 'delicate'. This character originally signified a delicate and graceful woman. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ' Few women are as exquisite, or as odd.'
