Keeping Merminia Playlist

Please Share

Before I wrote any scene for Keeping Merminia, I had to find a song to match the mood. I’ve tried to avoid spoilers by using codes. Here’s a shortened playlist, about scary mermen/lunging dragons/sassy mermaids/secretive witches/quick elves/tragic death/looming war and yes, a little love:
