Plotless

I have nine characters, and a setting. Three of my nine characters are potential antagonists, one because he has no morals, one because she is full of anger and hostility, and one because he is hated by the other eight already.

So, I have these nine characters, I know quite a bit about them. I have a very good idea about their relationships with each other.

But I just don't know what their story is! I want to sue these nine people and their setting, but I just can't figure out what the story is.

I've been told there are only 6 plots. I'll happily use one of those, but what are they? I can't find a single reference to them online, so maybe whoever told me there are only six just made it up!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might come up with a plot?

I have no idea who you are but seeing you're a friend of Marija you can't be all bad. Anyways I found those basic plots you were after, I think the reason you couldn't find them is cos there are 7 rather than 6.

Not what I was looking for, but very helpful all the same. Some of the theories were interesting.

And I believe we may have met? Have you been to an Obernewtyn.net meet with Marija? In Canberra? If so, we've met.

Met? Maybe...

I've only really met Marija's friends at cocktails in Newtown and at Sam's party a few months back.

Not been to any Obernewtyn.net meets, and I try to avoid Canberra as much as possible :P

Then we haven't met. It must have been another friend of Marija's I met in Canberra.

And apart from avoiding Canberra, you seem alright too. :P

Thanks for your help.

I only really avoid it cos the public transport is hideous and my little sister lives there. She is mean and pinches...
