A brown mouse and an apprentice spell-caster brave the den of the red dragon to see what she guards..
On this page, you’ll find the podcast episode trailer and the full episode.
And of course, a link to the source, the short story.
[Video description: Duration is 40 seconds. Scanned watercolor painting of a cavern and a sleeping red dragon curled around a golden horn in the right foreground. On the right, a young man hides behind a boulder, holding on hand out toward a brown mouse, who is running toward the dragon. Other golden piles are scattered throughout the cavern. The image remains still. Text appears throughout the video. “Podcast Episode” displays mid-screen, with the story’s genre, “Fantasy” below it. The words fade away, replaced by the story’s title, “Breninglas.” The title fades away. Subtitles appear in time with alternating narration at the bottom of the screen: “’I should go first,’ Azi whispered, wiping his brow and adjusting his cap in one movement. It was unnaturally warm in the dragon’s den. The little brown mouse, standing on her hind legs beside him, twitched her whiskers. ‘You’re too big. She’ll hear you, and she’ll smell you. We’ve already decided. Why do you waver?’ The two were hidden behind a large boulder on the other side of which was a great sleeping dragon.” The website URL appears at the bottom and fades only at the very end. At the video’s end, a text box appears over the image with the words “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”]
