I use different names for the school and the society and things like that, because I didn't want anyone to say, 'Well, this isn't how it is at Yale.' And I was like, 'No, this is how it is in the story.' ... No one can say, 'Oh, well this isn't Skull and Bones.' Well, it's not Skull and Bones, and it's not Scroll and Key, and it's not Book and Snake. It's Rose and Grave.
