Interstellar - The Io Playlist
About This is a playlist full of vibes, titles, and lyrics that carry the soul of Io. The first eight songs are, in fact, her backstory. You can click the little play icons to go to YouTube and hear the songs - OR, click the title above to go to the Spotify playlist. Please enjoy! Psst - message me with your guess on who my favorite musical artist is, and you could earn a bonus point!

Earn a free raffle ticket? If you have a song recommendation that fits with Io's theme - think interstellar, galaxies, stars, fantasy, orchestral, drama - send it to me! If I add it to the playlist, you'll get a free raffle ticket! There's no limit to the number of tickets you could earn this way :D

Jupiter was a king, a king of the earth and sky. And Io was beautiful. He took her heart into his keeping and gave her pieces of his own. His falling star. Her cosmic love.


Welcome to week one of Io's legend, voyagers! This week's activity is a word search!

Do it online here!

Earn 1 point and 1 raffle ticket by completing the word search! You can either message me a screenshot or post it here in the thread (the puzzle regenerates each time you load the page, so you don't have to worry about spoilers :P).

You have until 11:59 pm HP time on Tuesday, March 9th to earn your point!


But Jupiter was married, and his wife was powerful, vengeful, and cold. Juno the Merciless, Juno the Cruel. "She is my Queen at War," he said, "and you are my Queen of Peace."


The plot thickens, voyagers! This week's activity is a puzzle!

Do it here!

Earn 1 point and 1 raffle ticket by completing the puzzle! You can message me or reply here with a screeshot of your completed puzzle to claim your prizes. Include your time in the screenie for a chance to earn the bonus prize!

Bonus Prize: The two fastest puzzle times (not earned by the same player) will earn a bonus point! You can update your screenshot as many times as you want by the deadline.

You have until 11:59 pm HP time, March 16th to submit your puzzle!


Jupiter beckoned and bade Io to stand at his side, an equal in the stars. In the face of Juno's ire, should even the mountains crumble. "Stand by me," he said.


Would you stand by Jupiter if he called you, voyagers? Welcome to Week Three!

This week's activity is an unscramble! Unscramble all the phrases to earn 1 point and 1 raffle ticket! This can't be done online, unforunately - so you can do this in Photoshop/Gimp, print it, or write it out, whatever works for you.

Here's the sheet!
Here's the PRINTER FRIENDLY sheet

Bonus: Solve the secret sentence at the bottom for a glimpse into the future of Io's journey (and an extra point)!

You must MESSAGE ME with your completed puzzles to claim the prizes! Please do not post them here :3

You have until 11:59 pm HP time, March 22nd to send me your puzzles!
