Ice and Fire by rubendevela Ice and Fire by rubendevela
Fanart of A Game of Thrones.

To the show watchers out there, welcome to the series!

Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark running off from Harrenhal, as a sudden spring storm follows them across the shores of the Gods Eye.

This would kinda be like those romance novel cover poses, but THAT book that would probably maim and disembowel story expectations!

(no spoilers in the comments, please)

EDIT 2013: Yey! This fanart was featured in comicbookgirl19's Game of Thrones Epic History! [link]

Me? I think it was an abduction. People have compared Arya to Lyanna from time to time, and given Arya's contemptuous view of marriage, chances are this could indicate that Lyanna wasn't too keen on getting married either. Perhaps she approached Rhaegar and asked him to help her escape and he became smitten with her and decided to take her for himself, claiming he was "helping" her.

I would LOVE to see a prequel series that led up to Game of Thrones and learn more about Rhaegar and Lyanna.

My theory is that while Rhaegar is married to Elia, he is not the father of Rhaneys or Aergon and they are actually his father's children from forcing Elia to have intercourse with him like how he made sexual advances to Joanna Lannister. Heart broken by that and the fact he wanted to fulfill the prophecy of having an heir that will become a great ruler, Rhaegar was at a loss, and in the process Elia starts to go insane and starts acting like Lysa Tully and Cersei combined as Rhaegar was upset with her for not telling him about the children's parentage and the fact Rhaneys and Aergon are Blackfires and he starts growing away from her for not telling him the horrible things his father was doing.

Then Rhaegar meets Lyanna, who has concerns for her future marriage to Robert Baratheon who is unfaithful and she fears she will have a miserable marriage and wanted more. He saw himself in her and when he crowned Lyanna as the queen of love and beauty instead of Elia, Elia starts to become insanely jealous and she started hating Lyanna. 

As Rhaegar and Lyanna became closer, Elia's sanity starts slipping and one day when the mad king was sending his wife and Rhaegar away but was keeping Elia and her children Elia told Rhaegar he cannot see Lyanna anymore as she is promised to Robert, but then it turned into a fight as Elia called Lyanna a tart, that was when Rhaegar told Elia he wanted to end their marriage and send her back to Dorne with her children as he saw that Elia's mental state was not well after what his father did to her and the fact she is becoming more vicious. As it turned out, Elia sent an assassin to kill Lyanna, which of course Rhaegar stopped, before they knew it Rhaegar and Lyanna ran away, Elia got upset and told everyone Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna, basically saying "If I can't have him, no one can."

That's what I think why the war started and why Rhaegar and Lyanna ran off: Jealousy and to save themselves.

It's pretty much an ongoing theme in Game of Thrones: Cerei jealous of any woman who is younger, more beautiful and associates herself with her sons, Lysa jealous of her sister Catelyn for having Peter's affections and so on.

I wish they would do a pre-got spin-off on the events leading up to that tourney. It would be interesting to see. If she's anything like Arya, she simply wasn't "kidnapped" by Rhaegar if you know what I mean and I think the love was a short-lived one.

the love was pretty much of a short one, i doubt they would still be together after all that has happened.

It could go like that or Rhaegar could make Lyanna his second wife. I honestly don't see Rhaegar or Robert being appropriate for her :(

i seriously doubt lyanna would even want to be wife to rhaegar if they even survived after all that's happened. she wa sixteen when she died and i believe she started off as being smitten by rhaegar or something, and then soon realized that this was a mistake and had cost war and bloodshed. it would be great to have that certain perspective from her, not just have the whole rhaegar x lyanna a 'tragic love story'.

I believe Jon is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna.

And if Rhaegar and Lyanna were married, then Jon Snow the rightful king of Westeros.

Nope, Aegon would be the first in line (if he is alive). There is speculation that Aegon (the son of Elia Martel, the queen) was spirited away before he could be killed, but if he is dead then Jon is the true king.

Among the characters of "Songs of Ice and Fire," Aegon is too insignificant in order to the author made ​​him the king of Westeros. (Sorry for my lousy English...)

Who would agree with me that we need a prequel series detailing the events that led up to and occurred during Robert's Rebellion?

Not all Targaryens had the white hair, purple eye looks. Rhaegar's first child had the classic "dornish" look.

So much.. "conspiracy" surrounding these 2 that Im dying for some answers in the next book whenever it finally comes out. I'll be patient simply because it will be worth it even if we dont get our answers. Also really like Lyanna's portrayal here, can definitely see why Rhaegar crowned her (so to speak, since I cant remember the title they gave) at the tourney.
