That's The Splot

Recommended Posts

Welcome to plotting central for my four characters:

  • Mae Sutherland, seventh year Bourke - a definitely not six feet tall ball of anxiety, with a love of books and trivia
  • Simon Bican, sixth year Sturt - a moody broody ass with a love of dance and with no love for purebloods
  • Gawain Llewellyn, health & healing professor - a man with more suits than friends, and going way overboard in a gesture to his daughter
  • Robyn Zhou, head of magical education at the Victorian Ministry - 100% done with all of this already




Mae is a seventh year Bourke, clearly sorted because of her kind and industrious nature and general willingness to help out. She is not the sporty Bourke stereotype: physical activity and the great outdoors are her natural enemy. (She's all limbs and with her colouring does she look like she's made for Australian sun? I rest my case).

Students, she's always willing to help out and be a friend, lending books and ears in equal measure. She won't ask for anything in return, so she can be taken advantage of on this respect.

Teachers, she's not the kind of student who has her hand up first for every question (even though she most likely does know the answer. Instead she's more that student who can be relied upon to provide the answer if no one can or will. Again, she's always ready to help out, so she can certainly come across as a suck up or teacher's pet even though she's not actively working it to an advantage. She is in her last year but still very uncertain as to what she wants to do in life, and the anxiety will be building as the year moves closer to its end. While she does very well at all her subjects, she has a natural talent for potions and alchemy.

She's a heavy romantic although she's never been kissed and is way too nervous to make any sort of first move. She is bisexual, but not officially out.

SUGGESTIONS: friends and positive acquaintances; people who can encourage and help her find a direction in future study and career.



Simon is probably best known as that moody ass in the corner, the guy with a terrible sense of humour, or the not better half of his twin sister, Silvia. Despite the attitude, he does very well academically, with an aptitude for spellcasting (charms, transfiguration, defence against the dark arts, wandless magic) and is in the duelling club,

He would also be well-known for being a Muggleborn with a strong dislike of pureblood traditions; it would not be known that his father is a Squib expelled from an old Romanian pureblood family, the Dragomirs. Simon himself does not know he is the spitting image of his paternal grandfather.

Simon comes from a family of dancers - it's known that his sister and both parents are ballet dancers, while Simon is not. He says it was never his thing. But he's lying here: he's very good at it, but wants it to be his thing. When he started at Tallygarunga he refused to let people know out of fear of them all making fun of him, and now the secret is so big he doesn't know how to pop the bubble.

He is openly pansexual (out since late 4th year) but very inexperienced with no ex-partners or official dates. His attitude pushes people away, and until now that's mostly been how he liked it.

SUGGESTIONS: Acquaintances; people he's annoyed and snarks with; people who may become his friend in future. I'd especially love a rival of some kind - bonus points if the rival is also in the duelling club. While he has two biggish plots in the revealing of the dance and Dragomir secrets, I'm first looking for a network of people around Simon (and Silvia) for when that all happens. However if you know of a way to get those rolling through a character of yours let me know.




The new healing teacher, Gawain has moved back to Melbourne - the birthplace of his daughter Siwan and late wife - as part of a promise to stop packing up and moving onto the next place whenever the mood strikes... and no longer upending his daughter's life. He's Welsh, a former Hufflepuff, worked at St Mungo's. Is also trained as a Muggle physician because he decided he'd be a better healer that way.

His daughter Siwan Llewellyn is a sixth year Flinders. He's very proud of her, even if he's not been the most settled and present of fathers. They now have a house in Lausler Park, with a pool and very nice BBQ set-up. Sounds like a great setting for a dinner party.




New Head of Magical Education, appointed amidst a whole lot of scandal (thanks to her eldest, London, who outed a whole felix felicis doping scandal). Went to Tally, was school captain. Same year as Alan. Taught briefly at Greyheme before spending many years at Penrose. Eventually moved to the Ministry and there we are today.

Progressive yet rigid, she's a woman who's experienced discrimination and gossip and wants to use her experience and position to improve matters. Daughter of two Muggle Chinese immigrants; openly lesbian. She's also a registered and known Animagus in the form of a whistling kite - her teaching subject was Transfiguration. Her younger brother, Malcolm, was formerly a chaser for the Australian Quidditch team, and now works as a commentator.

All three of her kids have been plucked from private school and are now at Tallygarunga. They are London (7th year, not male, very Veronica Mars-esque), Sierra (6th year, female), and Raleigh (3rd year, male).)

Gotta put something in here for Mae and Gawain. We talked about all of the things I think, but Mae and Siwan can talk about books and be confused about the future together. 

Gawain and Siwan are a given. :D
