I tried to flesh out the article by finding references for the existing text, additional details on her life and impact in the novels, and a few corrections where the article contradicted the text of the novels. If I have overlooked an important reference to Lyanna, please let me know. --Dimadick 22:30, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Nice work! My only comment is that the paragraphs that refer to the books are redundant.
A division in such paragraphs may work well for main characters that are alive because it describes what they are doing during a particular time. But for a person that is already dead the info usually contains memories and recollections. There is no reason to include these in paragraphs with titles that refer to the books. For instance the comparison between Lyanna and Cersei is about Lyanna's appearence so it could be included there. That Kevin Lannister thinks of that in A Dance with Dragons is true, but is that relevant enough to create a separate paragraph? Scafloc 23:46, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Merged the paragraphs into the history section. Better? --Dimadick 17:41, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes I think it is better now. Also "Named after Lyanna" is a good one; that is what it is about. I does not matter in which book this was. Scafloc 21:38, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Picture edit war

Maybe instead of having an edit war you should discuss the picture a bit :D

Personally I prefer the one by Elia Fernandez, Lyanna looks more natural in the picture --SerKeplan 12:08, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

It is not about liking a picture, according to our policy the picture should fit the description. Lyanna is described as having dark hair, a long have and having a "wild" look about her. Please compare the pictures. Elia's Lyanna has no dark hair, no long face and certainly does not look wild (nor beautiful). Another point: the previous picture was the one of Riavel. If Donal Stark want to challenge that fine but let him do so here before changing it.Scafloc 07:05, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
Again we have agreed that the pictures should match the description. This applies even more for the "main picture". Riavel's picture matches it best from the current collection (long face, wild look, flowers of which Lyanna was said to be fond). If there are arguments for other pictures please state them.Scafloc 23:01, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Lyanna would have had Stark dark brown hair, not black hair. And I think Dreambeing's picture is simply better. Lyanna is supposed to be extremely beautiful, and I feel he captured this the best. He also gave her a long face. And "wild" is pretty hard to define, but I think it comes across better wearing furs. --Lord Thornhart 01:54, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Dreambeings Lyanna does not have a long face and the girl on it looks shy, not wild or willfull. Wearing furs does not change that. And I think the picture is not as good as Riavel's. Also Lyanna is said to have "dark" which is consistent with Riavel's impression.Scafloc
Riavel's doesn't look wild or willfull, it doesn't even seem to have personality. Also her eyes seem blue, while Dreambeing's has the correct grey. Yes her hair is dark, as in dark brown. Starks have brown hair. I don't believe one was ever said to have black hair. --Lord Thornhart 02:45, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Blue? That is farfetched to say the least. If we are taking this aproach Dreambeings Lyanna has dark eyes. About the hair the quote cleary says "dark hair". So it is in line with the text. Having a preference is ok but keep to the text please. Dreambeings Lyanna just does not look anything removely resembling willfully or head strong. If fact if the hair would have been red people would have thought she was Sansa.Scafloc 10:01, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

But the Riavel picture doesn't exactly show wild either, I think. Why is the Elia Fernandez image out of the running, exactly? The eyes and hair match, right?--Rhaenys_Targaryen 15:32, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

I think the Riavel's version is more wild then either Elia Fernandez or Dreambeing. The one of Elia Fernandez is correct with the sadness that is also associated with Lyannna. And the color of the eyes match. But the hair color ? To me this does not seem dark but light brown.Scafloc (talk) 09:32, 26 May 2015 (CDT)
Elia Fernandez might not display wild necessarily, but it does show the correct eye color, and the brown hair (I personally find Riavel's drawing to display her hair more black than brown, and Lyanna's hair was brown, after all.--Rhaenys Targaryen (talk) 14:06, 26 May 2015 (CDT)
The books say "dark" not brown. So that matches less with Fernandez' picture which shows the color as a light brown.Scafloc (talk) 14:17, 26 May 2015 (CDT)
She looks like Arya, whose hair is brown.. So dark-brown it should be then, right? Not black.--Rhaenys Targaryen (talk) 14:32, 26 May 2015 (CDT)
