To our Look to the Stars family, whether you’ve been here since the beginning or joined only recently,

It is with heavy hearts that the Staff are announcing the closure of our beloved site. It will remain open for the entirety of August for you to collect your character profiles together and maybe hang around the site for the last time, but after that, LTTS will be closing. The closure comes for no reason other than the site reaching almost a ‘natural end’ in its life – all good things must come to an end, after all!

To celebrate the life of our wonderful site (or at least this is the case in our opinion!), we’d like to share with you a little bit of history because we’re proud of what our site was and what it came to stand for! Way back in 2015, which honestly feels like forever ago for those of us who’ve been around that long, a wonderful woman we all know as Maggie opened LTTS’ doors for the first time. Here is a short quote from the very first OTMs, of which our site leader won. We feel it sums her up incredibly well: “Maggie is the fearless leader of LTTS (or so the members call her!). She designed and created LTTS to be a safe, fun space for folks wanting to roleplay fantasy horses without the confinement of a lot of rules. So far, we think she's succeeded! She is a very easy and open person to talk to.”

As mentioned above, before all else, LTTS was designed to be simple. This was a safe space for anyone who wanted to write their pixel equines. With its relaxed and happy atmosphere, the member base that followed the opening of the site simply proves what, at the time, a innovative site it was, proving that the most unassuming, modest roleplays have the power to build strong communities, something that LTTS has always prided itself on.

Since 2015, it has been one heck of a rollercoaster! The site has been through so much – surviving the opening of other sites, the very sad stepping down of Maggie and one or two (okay, many!) redesigns to keep it fresh. We’ve seen some crazy writing and some beautifully touching threads. There are so many characters that will live forever in our minds as legends who carved Elysium’s future into the earth and stone it is created of. The current Staff team would firstly like to say a massive thank you to Maggie. Without you, there would be no LTTS, and many of us would have missed out on having a home in the RP world that is so welcoming. We’re sorry that your brain-child is closing, but we know you have some super exciting upcoming projects that we can’t wait to see; whatever you end up doing, we know you’ll be successful. Also to mention are the endless Staff members who have put so much time, effort and heart into LTTS. Here is an attempt to mention you all. Sorry if we missed anybody! Thanks to Maggie, Asyn, Blushie, Ana, Niki, Cecil, Scrimpyshrimp, Soupi, Revanant, Strixx, Briallu, Arabella, Mallory, Mercier, Mono, Boaz. Every one of you helped create this beautiful community, and you all should be so proud you were part of the LTTS journey. Finally, what would we be without our members. You range from young to old, shiny-new to veteran of the RP world and crazy to kind. One thing you all have in common is your ability to just get on. We’d like to say that we, as a site, have (probably!) had very little drama and we’re so thankful for you guys for making our job so easy. You’re all super sweet and respectful of each other. It’s lovely to see such collectivism online because it can often be missed in this internet age. Never have we met such a talented bunch of writers who also manage to juggle real life as well as roleplaying some incredible characters. A big, big thank you (and so many hugs) for your endless support.

As a final word, we’d like to say to our members – don’t stop roleplaying! We can name endless sites that are around right now (Caeleste, Rise of the Fallen, Fimbulvetr, Novus, just to name a few), plus there are many that are being created at this very minute. Go forth and continue your equine RP journey! The end of one thing opens so many doors into new and exciting possibilities.

There is currently no plan to bring around a LTTS 2.0. Perhaps in the future, the Staff will get together again and with Maggie’s permission, the world of Elysium will be reborn. (Remember that the idea was originally hers, so anyone looking to take inspiration from the site must speak to her first.)

But for now, we say goodbye, we love you all, and don’t forget to look to the stars!

We need your help!


Since The Sister split, and firstborn Cora fulfilled her wishes to become a mortal and walk amongst the residents of Elysium, the herd of Carinae has been left without a firstborn. Unbeknownst to the Elysium's children, there is a sixth firstborn, the youngest of them all. Why have we not seen, nor heard of, him until now? Well, the youngest firstborn fancies himself somewhat of a casanova. Until recently, the stallion was living amongst the mortals, existing as if he were one of them but there primarily to, well, flirt. Only now has the deity risen to responsibility, resuming his whimsical form with his siblings and returning to the skies as if to swap with his sister, Cora, who resides now upon the ground.

His physical form takes the shape of a classical marwari. Ears curl inwards to touch each other at the tips, his build is sinewy and lithe. The stallion's hide is painted cremello, a pearlescent white base with pale gold hues brushed over the hocks, fetlocks, chest and chin. Long swathes of wavy alabaster hair fall over his neck and hind legs, so long that you'd expect him to trip over and yet miraculously he never does. A singular oval teal gem sits in the center of his forehead, its colour deepened by the turquoise eyes sitting on either side. Finally, a set of translucent dragonfly wings sprout from his shoulders, bordered with silver and shimmering an iridescent shade of periwinkle blue. When he flies, the wings are a mere blur of cyan, hardly looking to be there at all.

So what can you do?


Our newly responsible firstborn needs a name! 

We gave you over a week to post your name suggestions, now we need to vote!

We received so many amazing name suggestions, but we couldn't possibly at them all to a poll so we've narrowed it down to 12! You can vote for 2, simply as there are so many, and each is listed along with its meaning so you can relate it to the firstborn and his personality! If your name suggestions weren't posted in the poll please don't be sad - we truly loved them all and wish it were possible to put the huge amount all in one poll!

this poll will be open until Tuesday 8th May, you have one week ! get voting !
