“Ah, yes. You think that you have killed a god. Do you feel powerful? Has your own hunger deepened?

Be wary, Guardian. There are gods…and there are gods. Not all are quite so small - and not all are quite so big.

I have seen what the Hive call a god.

And it did not look like Oryx.”

SCAD Tip List

SCAD Tips (aka what we’ve gained from our freshman year - me, imaginativemad, jordannabanana5, theunbloggable, lovelyladylaudanum)

*edit* Since it’s been a few years and I’m currently now a Junior, some things may not be the same and I’ll just cross out things that will be irrelevant considering the new Hive has new buildings and such; sadly I don’t know much about the new freshman and hive dorms. New information is bolded and italicized. 

1) The Hive / Other food

-Usually a hit and miss but it’s better than eating microwave food every night

-Best on SCAD days, minus all the visitors

-Please don’t go during continental time unless you are okay with just cereal, toast and sometimes pizza.

-Dining dollars roll over quarters but not years

-The artisan (located in Turner) is your best friend for late night dinner or =-weekends

-Go to J.O.’s Chop House on the weekends for a really really nice dinner.

-Sometimes random food at Hive is spicy- don’t ask why.

-The Hive conveyer belt where you drop off your plates has a sensor, make sure you don’t have any things hanging over the edge or it will stop and become backed up

-There is midnight breakfast the weekend before finals in Fall and Spring Quarter. Go- it’s worth it.

-Use your dining dollars! It’s money you can’t get back at the end of the year so put it to good use.

2)Busses /Transportation

-Bus system is great on weekdays but never trust the weekend route

-The academic buildings are not conveniently close but it’s still nice to walk back or in between from time to time.

-Invest in a bike – SCAD now has a bike share program, and you get 4 free hours to use a bike per day

-Freshmen can have cars but can’t park at any academic buildings (you’ll get fined) 

-If a friend has a car, ask politely if they can take you to the academic buildings on the weekend.

-Thank the bus drivers

3) Classes / Professors

-Even if you hate 8 am’s- take one or an 11 on Tues/Thurs. and you can start your weekend early.

-Classes only happen Monday - Thursday

-Friday makeup classes suck and throw your schedule off

-Always look at the class syllabus

-Make friends with your teachers

-Time management is your best friend

-Buy your materials as you need them- not all at once. Seriously, all that charcoal you have to get for drawing classes will most likely never be used again.

-Pay attention in class

-Communicate with your professors!

-Use your 4 days to be absent from classes for actually being sick or towards finals when sometimes it’s more efficient to work in your room rather than the studio.

  1. Again, if you are sick, communicate with your professors. But if you choose to skip, skip on a day that nothing is due and you can use your time effectively to work on other projects or homework.

-The professors don’t bite.

-Blackboard is your best friend

-Have fun and enjoy your classes!

-Compare prices and consolidate your textbooks with friends if possible.  

-Share materials and textbooks with friends who are in the same class as you.

-If you’re having trouble writing a paper, go to the writing studio and get some tips from tutors!

4) Entertainment / Activities

-Masquerade ball in October

-Join a club!

-Go to the beach at Tybee

-SCAD has a gym (located next to O-House)

-Go to SCAD events (not all are very advertised or emailed out though)

-Exhibits at SCAD museum

-Watch for SCAD events that might be interesting that can help you in your career path!

-If you like movies, keep an eye on the Lucas theater and the Trustees. They usually play classic films at least once a month. The Trustees is free while the Lucas is only about $6, around a $10 trip in total.

-Have some kind of entertainment system that can be used for groups of people whether it be a blu-ray or a game console. You’ll have a lot of down time the first couple weeks.

-Go to the student center

5) Dorms / Dorm needs

-D at the Hive and Turner Annex both have a pool

-If you don’t live in Tannex (Turner Annex) you can’t get in

-Tannex occasionally floods during heavy rain (aka Titannex)

-Tannex has two sized rooms. Even numbered rooms are smaller.

-Command strips DO NOT stick to the walls!

-Laundry is not hard to learn

-Keep your dorm clean- it’s your space, be proud of it

-Get a storage unit toward the end of the year.

-Get a pasta boat

-Experiment with what you can cook in your microwave

-Learn how to fold clothes effectively

-Get a thick mattress topper

-Get some other kind of seating because art stools are uncomfortable - this stands true for older dorms, but the new freshman dorms should have sorta regular chairs

-Keep a timer for your laundry- don’t be that asshole who leaves it in hours after it’s done. (people will take your laundry out when it’s done if you don’t get to it fast enough)

-SCAD wifi isn’t the greatest - Get your own router! Find one that is cheap but reliable.

-Bring a colored printer (you can print in black and white at the labs but finding a colored printer is hard.) 

-Get a shelving unit that can be broken down

-You can pin things to the wall (just have to cover up the holes at the end of the year)

6) Misc Tips

-Get enough sleep- don’t start pulling all nighters as a freshman

-Get amazon prime student and get your textbooks from there

-Never lose your ID- you can’t get anywhere without it

-Utilize SCAD’s resources!

-Please don’t shop at ExLibris too much- go to Blick

-Get those scholarships

-Call your parents at least once a month

-Don’t throw away any materials you bought for other classes! You or your friends might need them later on!

-ExLibris (student?) appreciation day = lots of art samples

-Look both ways before crossing the streets and watch out for tour trolleys. Even when using the crosswalk drivers do not always pay attention

-Utilize CS3 if you need to! They are great for anxiety and short term depression, etc. They are only short term though but they will recommend long term places.

-The turtles by the hive

-ALWAYS BE NICE TO THE SECURITY GUARDS AND ALL THE OTHER STAFF

-Drink water.

-Take care of yourself

-Hold doors open for people, no one wants to constantly hit their ID to get into buildings.

-Free and For Sale and other SCAD yard sale related facebook pages are awesome for finding and getting rid of supplies, books, and furniture.

Hi Claire! Maybe you've already heard the question before but anyway... how do you imagine a possible kabby baby? I mean, when you think about this precious little ray of hope... what do you see? Short/long hair? Dark eyes? Any distinguishing mark? Grounder/ark/mix of both clothing style? I actually think it'd be nice to collect the kabby fandom's most popular ideas to find out if we are all thinking about the same girl (because for me it's a girl) :D

When did we all sync our consciousnesses up to the Kabby Hive Mind and collectively decide through osmosis that the Kabby baby is obviously a girl? Because as far as I’ve seen there is 100% agreement on this question, which I absolutely love. My two favorite name options that I’ve heard – which I believe are both from fanfics, though I don’t recall whose is whose – are Eden and Hope. (Everyone appears unanimous that her middle name should be Vera.)

I would go with brown hair, around Abby’s color; Jake and Clarke were both blonde but Kane and Abby are brunette so their child (let’s call her Hope) (SEE WHAT I DID THERE LMAO I CRACK MYSELF UP) probably does too. Preferably curly, because that’s adorable. As far as clothes, I’d like to think that by six years in, everything is all jumbled up and we’ll come back after the time jump to see that everyone wears some combination of Grounder and Skaikru clothes (and hair; still keeping my fingers crossed for Abby in Grounder braids someday). Especially for the children, I’d imagine that they’re limited by whatever is available to fit them as they grow, and it would be pretty much a jumble of hand-me-downs of anything available to be passed down from older children once they grow out of it.

As far as what she’s like, I think she’d be a calm and thoughtful and serious child who is always asking big questions and wants to learn everything, but there are a few people in the bunker who can make her just light up and turn into a sparkly silly giggly ball of sunshine.

Jackson and Miller are her favorite babysitters; Uncle Nate teaches her pranks to play on her parents and goofy little-kid jokes, and one day Kane catches him teaching her how to pick a lock. (Which he’s not pleased to discover she’s very, very good at.) Uncle Eric is her best friend; he lets her hang out in Med Bay sometimes and keeps an eye on her while Mom is working, and puts her to work doing things like rolling up bandages that make her feel helpful and important.

Auntie Indra always address Hope very seriously, as though she is a tiny grownup, and claims she has no time to be bothered with a small child who is too young to fight; yet somehow, Hope always manages to find her to pester her with questions. Around age five, she startles her parents by casually switching every once in awhile from English to Trigedasleng midsentence.

Auntie O manages to get her hands on a wooden toy sword from a Grounder child who has outgrown it, and secretly begins teaching Hope how to use it (but secretly, to avoid Abby’s wrath if she ever found out). Sometimes when she babysits, Kane stumbles upon the two of them squished together in the big leather armchair in the bunker library, Hope sitting on her aunt’s lap while Octavia reads to her from Bulfinch’s Mythology.

Every night her parents tuck her into bed with stories about the family that she hasn’t met yet, but someday will. She knows all about her sister Clarke, who lives up above where the trees are, and about her Uncle Bellamy who lives up in the stars.

Hope grows up hearing everybody’s stories. She learns about the people who live in the bunker with her, but she also learns about everyone they’ve loved and lost, whose memories are kept alive in the stories they tell to the first Skaikru child born on the ground. Dad teaches Hope how to be the one who tends the tree, which he dug up from the earth with his bare hands and planted in a metal box in the bunker. He tells her all about his mother, who gave Hope her middle name. Mom tells her stories about her big sister Clarke when she was little, about the games she played with Wells and how she was scared of the dark and how much she loved to draw. Auntie Indra tells her stories about Lexa and Luna and Roan, and about the world of Grounders that used to be. Uncle Nate and Uncle Eric tell her all about the kids who live on the spaceship in the sky, how they lived there all their lives, then crashed down to earth and had so many adventures, and now they’re back up in the sky again. But someday, everyone promises her, someday they’ll all come home.

The Vesta IV returns to Polis a year overdue – a year of rationing and limited medical supplies and escalating tensions and Hope asking her parents every day when her family is coming home. When they finally clear away enough of the rubble to open the door, Hope knows them all so well that she greets them by name before they even know who she is. She wants to touch Raven’s leg brace and Emori’s tattoos and Harper’s blonde hair. “Who the hell are you?” says Murphy dubiously, and she flings her arms around his leg and exclaims “Hi, Uncle John!”

They spill out into the desolate land around Polis and begin the quest to resettle. They find a patch of green forest and the whole crowd, all twelve hundred or so, make their way over the wrecked, dead ground towards it.

Hope is riding on Dad’s shoulders, and she sees the flash of blonde hair in the trees before anyone else does. She begs him to set her down and takes off running as fast as her little legs can carry her. Abby chases her down, calling her name, but Hope is off like a rocket, leaping over logs and bracken until she reaches the clearing, sees the girl standing on the edge of the creek, and yells, “I found you, I found you! You’re my sister!”

After that, it’s as though they were never apart.

Bill Denbrough just kept finding himself there, didn’t he?

There he was, on the Uris’s front porch for the second time in two weeks, holding a plastic container of soup in one hand and a six-pack of soda in the other.

Oh, and Stan’s homework. Because that’s why he was here. Definitely.

Apparently one of our stage managers had a nightmare about me while I was away, specifically about him somehow setting fire to the copier, and then emailing me about it to apologize. 

My response, in-dream, was “I get back on Thursday. You had better not be there when I do.” 

…if you’re scaring stage managers, you are capable of sowing true terror. :D
