That’s it, I officially am never watching the show again
Here’s the character description of Trystane Martell from that site:
Trystane Martell is Prince Doran’s son and heir to Dorne. His father betrothed him to Myrcella Baratheon as part of the alliance offered by Tywin Lannister, then Hand of the King.
TRYSTANE MARTELL IS NOT THE HEIR TO DORNE
ARIANNE MARTELL IS THE HEIR TO DORNE. DID D&D LITERALLY JUST CUT HER OUT OF THE SHOW???
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!??
FRIENDS THIS IS A LITTLE BIT TOO EARLY FOR THIS I THINK. even arianne didn’t know that she was the heir to dorne until the end of affc, they’re not going to reveal in the casting announcements.
like i wouldn’t put it past this show to cut a prominent female character like that (and tbh i hardly expect them to do right by arianne) but saying she’s cut because somebody else was described as the heir of dorne when that was a big reveal in the books is hella premature
tbh i think it might be a bit alarmist to say that arianne martell is out of the show because trystane martell is billed as the “heir of dorne”. for one, she’s a pov character who is incredibly involved in the whole myrcella plotline which they’re obviously going to be pushing the season. but then also the fact that she’s heir is. a big reveal at the end of adwd.
it’s possible that they’re cutting quentyn martell (considering he was the one who was, supposedly, doran’s heir despite birth order), but i also think it’s equally likely that they’re switching his birth order with trystane and freeing him up to send after danaerys. which tbh i hope they do because that storyline needs some lifeblood injected into it.

Going to share it with the class?
haha, sure. the fic itself is located here
i haven’t actually read it as i’ve just found it, so i can’t vouch for its quality. but it is by fernwithy, who wrote/is writing the narrow path/end of the world series in the hunger games universe and also the shifts&shades/teddy lupin in the harry potter universe.
as these are some of my all time favorite fics, they come highly recommended. (the hunger games fics mostly follow haymitch, including the last two books told from his perspective, but they also follow other characters. the harry potter fics track lupin and tonks through books 5 & 6, then later track teddy lupin through school.)
well, fuck, apparently my favorite fic author of all time wrote au skywalker family/rebel anidala fic
