So here's the songs I listened to on repeat ad nauseum while I was writing this story. It's a fairly messy mix of instrumentals, themes, pop, covers, rock, alt, and pretty much everything in between. Maybe you guys can find some new songs to listen to, huh?

Also included are the songs that I was submitted by readers that they felt really captured either the story or Lorena herself. I never properly kept track of who submitted what, but thank you to all of you who wrote me with songs, it was really interesting to listen to them.
