I want to note something before we get too far into the parasite stuff-

I don't currently know of a good way to put content warnings on comic fury pages, if anyone knows, leave a comment! I will put content warnings in update tweets. It's not like, graphic, but there's going to be two bugs who are basically zombies, and I know that fungi can be upsetting for some people.

I also want to address right off the bat that parasites in this comic are not a metaphor for anything in the real world. It really is as if your friend was like "oh yeah, my friend's roommate is an actual real zombie". Understandably, some people might respond like "uuuuuh what??? that's scary". Characters are uncomfortable with the parasites in this comic, but they are not like, structurally oppressed. And the parasites are very much just chillin'. I just want to make sure no one misinterprets them as a "fake fantasty oppressed class" metaphor or anything. I simply love parasites!

Transcript:
Empress looks interested. “Wait, who??”

“The guy who got our wrestling tickets,” Cullex explains. “He’s my friend’s roommate. But, uh… He’s a parasite.”

Empress takes a thinking stance and narrows her eyes. “Ew… He’s a landlord?”

Cullex squints. “What? No. He’s a parasitic fungus living inside a host body…”

His silhouette is shown. He’s tall with multiple arms, glowing eyes, and mushrooms sticking out of his head.

Empress looks horrified. “Uh, WHAT??? I thought that kind of thing was just a myth.”

“Nope.”

Ziggy chimes in. “And he’s annoying.”

Empress sighs and then clenches her fist, determined to help once again.

“I don’t care. I want to meet him.”
