This article contains spoilers for the season 5 and 6 of Game of Thrones, as well as some discussion of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series.
Daenerys is going to feel dumb if she can't raise the funds to get to Westeros and this Kickstarter project is successful.
"Fixing Dorne" is an ambitious new crowdfunding campaign that wants to remake all of the scenes from Dorne on HBO's Game of Thrones starting with season 5, and continuing on to season 6, funds permitting. Sounds simple enough. Just raise enough money to shoot these mega-expensive scenes and have the end product be as good as HBO's original. It's not that hard, people. HBO does it every day.
Oh, yeah. But they just need $20 million.
Yes, it's a little tongue-in-cheek, but it's also the (il)logical extreme of fan displeasure with the Dorne storyline that started back in Season 5. To the chagrin of the show's biggest fans, the southernmost kingdom of Westeros never gets its due on the show compared to its prominence in the books. This is the chance to make good on Dorne.
Dorne started out full of promise when Oberyn Martell arrived in King's Landing to banter playfully with Tyrion Lannister and throw crazy sex parties. Who doesn't love a good sex party? But his death portended a downhill slog for the Dornish, leading up to the Sand Snakes' anti-climactic murder of Prince Doran and Trystane Martell in Season 6's premiere. Including them in the opener even made it seem like we'd be back into the story of Dorne and begin to see its importance, but it again disappeared from the show, leaving casual fans asking "What's a Dorne?" and fanatics refreshing Reddit every five minutes.
What would the "Fixing Dorne" team do differently? They're glad you asked.
Jaime Lannister and Bronn's entry into Dorne won't be so easy. "Instead of being met with the convenient delivery of clothes and horses sufficient to somehow transport them into the most guarded location in the entire kingdom, our intrepid duo find themselves in a half-familiar culture that has every reason to distrust them."
