Video description: Trailer for “Midnight 45.” 35 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fantastic Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “Every evening, one woman undergoes an unfathomable transformation. She turns into a cartoon.” The title card and tagline fade. Digital drawing. A woman seen from her top half stands facing forward with her arms partly raised away from her sides. She is looking to her left. Her left forearm has transformed into a lion’s paw. Behind her, in silhouette is a creature with the body of a lion and the tail of a scorpion. The creature is seen from its left flank, with right forepaw raised and tail curling up. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “‘I have a theory,’ Alastair said. Everyone turned their faces to him. ‘Nori has found way to breach the cartoon realm.’ I frowned. ‘The cartoon…realm?’ ‘Okay, sure,’ Perry said. ‘There’s a fairy realm, a demon realm, so why not a cartoon realm.’ I felt my tired eyes burn a little as they widened. ‘There’s a what?’ Perry placed a hand on my shoulder. ‘Steady. You might hear us say a number of unfathomable things here tonight.’” Story title appears at top as the image blurs. Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as appears at center displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”

“Eleanor,” the therapist said. “Let’s back up. Tell me about the app. What does it do? Why did you start using it? When did you first notice something unusual?”
