A woman caught in the middle of an ecological attack becomes a subject of interest for the group who is responsible.

Genre: Science Fiction


Chloe glanced again at the handsome man who was lingering at a sculpture. The sculpture was a caryatid, a column shaped like a woman, in this case, a celestial being. He gazed up at the stone carving of the heavily robed Herald of the Gods. The Herald too seemed to gaze down at him. She pointed up to the heavens with a hand that held a scroll, the scroll upon which was written the spell that brought the world into being.

Episode art description: Digital drawing.  Foreground, bottom left corner, a woman seen from the back, shoulders up, wearing a tank top. Her face is turned down and to the right, and her hair is swept over her left shoulder, so she could look at a tattoo on the back of her right arm. In front of her is a caryatid statue of a woman draped in voluminous robes tied at the waist, facing downward. Her raised left arm is bent back, her hand propped under a column behind her. Her right arm is raised straight up. Her right hand holds a scroll, and her index finger is pointing up. A large sphere is set on top of the column. Right above the statue’s head, vines sprout from a central spot. The vines entwine the sphere, drape down, and reach out in all directions, some moving off frame. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image.
