[Video description: 42 seconds. Scanned watercolor painting. A security force or group of soldiers are breaking into a darkened interior from a bright exterior. View is tilted about forty-five degrees from horizontal, looking up. Central figure takes a wide stances as he holds his rifle to his left. A symbol appears on the rifle stock of a creature with shark teeth and a bat’s wing behind a circle with a slash through it. The soldiers wear masks, visors, and devices that fit over their visors but are flipped up. Just visible on the bottom right corner is a part of a leaky hose. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lays over the image. Title card over the image displays “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Science Fiction” The words fade away, replaced by the story’s title. The title fades. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “Shortly before the world lost contact with Tranenbloud Island, the research team reported that an islander and a member of the team had gone missing, a man and a woman. Both were later found dead and with their reproductive organs missing, presumably devoured. A few days after that, all communication from the island ceased.” 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.”]
