A majority of character’s your liable to see in any given roleplay are either in their teen years or are college aged, and a lot of them also have the sort of names that are popular now. It’s understandable given the time they’re being played and the people playing them, but though it’s cool to have your character have the coolest and most unique name in the setting it’s not accurate. Below the cut I’ve complied a list of 334 names that would have been popular for parents to name their child around the time these characters would have been born.

Requested by Anon: reader is super depressed and sad but greg is there to make it all better! i just really want to read some sweet lestrade taking care of someone <3
Sorry this took so long to get up!!
You sat quietly in your apartment, listening to you some
Beethoven you had put on. The streets of London seemed quiet and relaxed,
almost deserted. They looked as empty as you felt.
Recently, you had become estranged from your family because
you announced to them you didn’t follow the faith they had raised you in. All
you could think about was the look on your crestfallen mum’s face and you could
only hear the screaming voice that belonged to your dad. The events of that
night kept circling through your head and the little voice inside your head was
getting more hostile as the days went on.
The only thing that pulled you out of your thoughts was a
knock at your door. You got up to answer it, questioning who it might be. You
opened the door to be greeted by none other than Greg Lestrade, your boyfriend.
“Hey Y/N. How are you feeling today?” Greg carefully asked
with a smile on his face.
“Same as always,” you told him while attempting to smile at
There was a slightly awkward silence between the two of you
before you invited Greg in and he quickly accepted. “Tea?” you offered.
“That’d be lovely,” he said, following you into the kitchen.
You began to heat up the water and didn’t hear Greg slowly
come up behind you, wrapping his arms tightly around you. You smiled a weak
smile and turned around, resting your head on his chest. His grip around you
tightened comfortingly and you released the tears that you had been wanting to
cry for so long.
Greg gently ran his hand through your hair and consolingly rubbed
your back. “Y/N, everything is going to turn out alright in the end. They may
not be in your life anymore but think of everyone who still is. Sherlock, John,
Molly, Erica, they all love and support you. And I’ll be here too. I love you
more than anything else in the world. I don’t care what your family thinks
about you. Just know that I fully support you in whatever decisions you make.”
You looked up at Greg and smiled a hearty smile at his
declaration. “Thank you Greg,” you said as you laid your head back upon his
chest. You still had a long way to go until you were your old self again but at
least you had the support of him.
Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege of working on a project for the Adobe Creative Cloud. My assignment was to create header art for tutorials surrounding Edge Reflow, Dream Weaver, Speed Grade, and Audition. The big challenge was to make images that did not literally represent the learning content but instead took on a looser interpretation of its subjects. I am pretty excited with how these came out, with how friendly the Adobe team has been, and to have gotten to work alongside some of my favorite artists and dear friends. Thank you AD Kendall Plant, the Adobe Cloud Team, and Erica Larson (my babe)!
