[Video description: 33 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fantasy” is displayed at top over blurred image. Below title card is the story tagline: “A magician creates for his empress a powerful elixir that can only work on one person, but the empress desires to share the power with her people.” The title card and tagline fade as the image comes into focus. Digital drawing. At center, bottom third, a man seen from waist-up, facing forward, sitting at a table. His gaze is cast down at a steaming bowl of soup. His right hand is holding a spoon raised to his open mouth. Right behind him is a glowing silhouette of a man with hands on hips, head in profile facing right. Behind and left, a tall woman stands with elegant decorations in her bound hair. Behind and right, an older woman stands holding a cane in front of her, one hand over the other, resting on top of the cane. Behind all are vague curtains swept loosely open. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “It is said the magician imbued the empress’s soup with a secret elixir that granted strength of mind, of body, and of character. The soup had to be eaten once a day. Its effects would grow, until the one consuming it obtained powers that even the magician could not predict or fathom.” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as text box appears over image displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.” Story title, “Gamma’s Forever Soup,” appears at top.]
