Dylan D. has proven himself to be a woefully incompetent writer when he has no source material (i.e. any actual arguments) to fall back on. 

We deserve a GoT petition that makes sense. 

Subvert my expectations and make it happen, Dylan D.!

That's essentially all Dylan D. wrote. Unlike Dylan D., though, we're going to show our work:

First off, he couldn't even pick a picture at Change.org's suggested minimum picture dimensions. His picture of the Night King was 405 pixels wide. I had higher-res pictures on MySpace. Come on dude.

Second, you wrote: "David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on." 

Let's unpack this.

Woefully incompetent? Really? You couldn't stop at "incompetent," you had to tighten the screws with "woefully?"  Even if we gave you "incompetent" (I'd challenge you or anyone who signed the petition to write the last 6 episodes of GoT "competently"), slathering a layer of salty word-mustard on it betrays the fact that you didn't actually come up with an argument other than that you didn't like the ending.  

As to the "no source material" part, I agree with you to a point. But if anyone's willing to be serious, there probably isn't a writer on planet Earth, aside from G.R.R.M. himself (and by all accounts, he probably doesn't want to finish it either), who would want to write the final season of a mega-nerd-loved show, with no source material, with every move they made dissected down to the molecular level. 

Third, and again, if anyone's willing to be serious: all of the character arcs, while they may have been hurried up, did not break any development path we've seen on the show before. The reason everyone loved GoT in the first place is because it subverted classic fantasy tropes. The final season did exactly that, yet it appears everyone was hoping for bog-standard endings to all their favorite characters, i.e. Jon would beat the Night King in a boss fight on a mountain peak with lighting striking all around them, then marry Dany and rule the 7 Kingdoms wisely and peacefully forever and ever. Jamie would kill Cersei with his fake hand and then marry Brienne, but it was actually Arya wearing a Jamie mask who did it and the real Jamie was secretly marrying Brienne in Tarth. Bronn is about to assassinate Tyrion on the toilet with a crossbow when suddenly Jaqen catches the crossbow bolt and informs him that Cersei's dead, and then they all drink wine and skip across the rolling hills of High Garden together.

Anyway, we could go on, you get my point.
