[Video description: 25 seconds. Scanned watercolor painting. Six figures are running away from a dragon who is breathing fire behind them. From left to right, the figures are a cat whose face bears flaming fur, a man with long hair and a mustache, an armored knight bearing a sword and shield, a muscular man wearing scant and primitive clothes, an archer with a long cap, and a bearded wizard with a staff. All are facing the viewer. At either side of them, columns are toppling. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lays over the image. Title card over the image displays “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fantasy” The words fade away, replaced by the story’s title. The title fades. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “Stealing treasure guarded by a dragon was impossible. Impossible for the greatest wizard, the mightiest knight, the strongest of men, the most cunning of creatures. Impossible for one, alone. But together…” Text box appears over image displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on.

Six fools ran from the dragon’s fire, but only one of them was her husband.
There was the wizard in blue robes with a green-jeweled magic staff. There was the armored knight who bore a shield that guarded against flame. There was the jungle barbarian and the mystical fire-cat. There was the sprightly archer. And then there was the mustachioed scoundrel, who had assembled them all. His beloved wife had been lost to an enchantment, an enchantment that was impossible to break. Impossible, that is, for a single man, even if he were a devoted spouse.
