lbr d&d erased arianne because she was a female character who was the heiress of dorne, sexual positive, was a grown up woman who still isnt married, is beautiful and badass and of course we cant have that
because dorne is stupid when they let their oldest daughter be the heir. because there were already so many sand snakes and women its too much for our sexist viewers to take
because arianne has two younger brothers and what in the world would give her the right to be the heir and not them
for those saying “oh maybe they just don’t want to announce arianne yet” or “maybe they’re still casting for her”
YOU’RE NOT FOCUSING ON THE PROBLEM HERE
TRYSTANE IS DESCRIBED AS THE HEIR TO DORNE
THIS IS A THING THAT’S HAPPENING
Trystane Martell is Prince Doran’s son and heir to Dorne.
THAT IS THE FUCKING OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION FROM HBO
IN THE BOOKS ARIANNE IS THE HEIR TO SUNSPEAR
IN THE BOOKS ARIANNEIS DORAN’S FIRSTBORN
BUT IT’S TRYSTANE WHO HBO SAYS IS THE HEIR
D&D LITERALLY REPLACED A MAJOR POV CHARACTER WITH A REALLY REALLY REALLY SECONDARY CHARACTER WHO DOESN’T EVEN HAVE LINES IN THE BOOKS
NOT ONLY THAT A MAJOR POV CHARACTER WHO IS ONE OF THE FEW WOC WITH AGENCY IN THE SERIES
At least they did something right by casting Alexander Siddig as Doran, i’m not really liking the sand snakes, like, at all. But now to the most important issue;
WHERE THE FUCK IS ARIANNE?!?!!
- nice friend person: hey, how've you been?
- me: capitalism is crushing me. i am barely surviving. i am full of toxic resentment. i want revenge.
