Video description

Video description: Trailer for “The Transmutation of Mister Lang.” 36 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Horror Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “After closing his latest case, a private investigator who specializes in finding missing persons starts experiencing strange changes.” The title card and tagline fade. Digital drawing. Two figures, a man behind a desk, and a woman sitting in front of it in a small dim office. The man is sitting and bent over the desk. His hands are hairy. His left arm is bent before him on the table surface, lying over an open file. His right hand is pressed against the desk surface. His pointed ears protrude from his long hair. The back of his shirt is torn in three places, and hair protrudes from the tears. A desk lamp sits to the left. Behind him, at left, is a bookcase. Behind him, at right, is a window with blinds drawn, partly visible. Foreground, bottom left, a file cabinet is just visible with a label that reads “Case Files” with the “c” not visible and alphanumerics below it. The woman sits on a chair. She’s seen from the back and her left profile. She holds her left arm on her lap. Her right hand is raised before her, holding a lit cigarette between her first two fingers. A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” lies over the image. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “There are no remedies, she had told me. No vaccines, no rare herbs, no spells, no amulets, no cutting-edge treatments. Nothing in the realms of either science or spirituality could stop it at this point. There’s no reversal either. Not like in the stories and legends. This was a one-way trip. And it promised to be a painful passage.” 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”

“Can you put that out?” I asked through clenched teeth.

I was still hunched over the desk, but I could smell it. Her cigarette. It felt as if every particle of ash was boring its way up into my nose, past my eyes, into my skull. When she dimmed the lights, I’d been mostly suspicious and partly curious about what she had in mind. But now I was just thankful. Because it felt as if every pinpoint of light was focusing through the lenses of my eyes and drilling through my brain.
