I'm addicted to mythology, but mermaids are my favorite to research. They're beautiful creatures, or so people say as I have yet to actually see one. This site will be a compilation of my research of mermaids. I'm making it for all mermaid fanatics.
I've noticed that all mermaids seem to have different colors, so i've looked into this. It seems to be that when immersed in water, a mermaids tail is a darker usually warm color like reds and golds. When a mermaid is out of water and dryer, their tails turn into a cooler color gradually. Usually a green or blue. I'm not sure why yet. ~Anon
P.S- Notice the tail color in this painting. Green because her tail is drying out. Mermaids cannot stay out of the water for more than a few days, even if they find out how to make legs with magic temporarily.
There's a book that I have found, it was in the corner of an old shop, hiding behind many old novels as if people have forgotten it was there. It's called mermaids and mystics: Perfecting your powers and potions positively.
It's handwritten, the one I found. And in the book the author seems to talk about one more copy being out there, one that actually sold. But this copy he couldn't get rid of because everyone else thought it was a joke. So there's another version out there. But this book has spells in it, and creations that you can mix together and drink or apply to the skin that changes things! Well it's supposed to work but it hasn't for me yet. More on that later. ~Anon
I've been reading more into Mermaids and mystics!!
It explains the tail change color!
Apparently each mermaid has a special stone or gem that's hidden in the ocean, and once they find that exact stone or gem their tail will change that color and stay that color forever. When they find the stone, their powers will also get a lot stronger.
Chapter ten in this book explains mermaid powers, in legend they've been known to have powerful singing voices that can lure people to their deaths in the water. They can also levitate small things and have been known to stop boat motors. Can they control some electronics?
More on that later
You'd be surprised. There's a whole chapter on food recipes in Mermaids and Mystics. I'm making and extra page to show some of the recipes. They seem to have some interesting qualities about them. Check it out.
