for fuck's sake, if the original berlin city palace had a cross on top of the dome and you want to build an accurate reconstruction of the outside of the building, you put a fucking cross on top of the dome. it's not that difficult. if non-christians like myself can deal with seeing crosses on churches, they can deal with seeing crosses on reconstructions of buildings from an era when secularism was not a thing yet. i mean, would you be making a big deal about the fucking cross if the original palace was still there? are you making a big deal out of the fact that we're reconstructing it at all even though nobody wants to go back to the kind of monarchy it was originally constructed for? come on...

i wonder though, what's up with the way the gems' actual gemstones physically increase in size when they fuse... i mean, when you look at a fusion like sardonyx or alexandrite, their gems are very obviously larger than they are on their component gems. how does that work?
