Before Queen Mary could enter hotel service in Long Beach, she had to go through some renovations. Originally, Long Beach bought her to turn her into a maritime museum hotel combo. So the plan was to rip out literally everything below R deck to make space for 3 or 4 different museums. Unfortunately, the only thing to come of these original museum plans was the “Propeller Box” exhibit. All those rooms gutted remain empty to this day. Rumor says the only thing remaining in the former 3rd class and crew spaces is the carpeting.

Weird facts about my characters

So imma open this up, send me an ask with one of my characters names and I will respond with a random fact you may or may not have known.

Honestly I want to cry. I love Magnus so much. He's honestly such amazing bi representation and poc representation- very specifically Asian- and Harry himself is an actual angel. I just... want him to get more love and respect? And I'll be honest I'm white and bisexual and it breaks my heart and I honestly can't imagine how much worse it must be for fans of color and LGBTQ fans of color. I just am sad, sorry for this ask.

i’m just going to be brutally honest and say that white ppl can criticize this show and walk away and still find their rep elsewhere; as a queer se asian i … can’t. like i don’t. have much else?? this is it for us. this is all we get

so it’s uncomfortable when i see the criticisms from white ppl leveled @ the show as if they somehow get it, as if it hurts them just as bad or they’re just as disappointed. like…no, you don’t get it. you just don’t. and it isn’t a slight against white fandom i’m happy you guys are lucky enough you can look elsewhere but please remember that you are in fact lucky enough to be able to look elsewhere
