Any setting will work, but I personally would lean more towards a real life story or something with a supernatural touch (I have two GL projects with those in mind lol). As for the whole finding out thing or having an established lesbian, it doesn't really matter, just make sure that fits the story well.
Like I said, GL is a nice touch, but make sure that it's a good complement to the story you're trying to tell, and make sure you have depth with your characters.
GL, BL, or no romance at all; slice-of-life or heroic fantasy - the characters and their struggles better be interesting
. I have my preferences, but you should write what you
are interested in, and make it engaging.
Also, as Lapsang said - it shouldn't be about the fact that the characters in the relationship are both female. They may/should have certain struggles that are unique to lesbian relationships (copypaste plots that would work no matter who the characters are tend to be boring!), but their lesbianness shouldn't be the most important/interesting thing about them.
When you're writing romance in general, try not to make the romance the raison d'etre for the characters. They should have their own lives and struggles outside of their love life; when a person's life revolves around a relationship, it's often a sign of an abusive/harmful relationship (which might make an interesting story in itself).
