Zombie Ant Fungus

The Zombie Ant Fungus (Ophiocordyceps unilateralis) is an entomopathogen, or an insect-pathogenising fungus. The fungus uses its spores to infect Carpenter ants. Infected ants leave their canopy nests and foraging trails for the forest floor, an area with a temperature and humidity suitable for fungal growth; they then use their mandibles to affix themselves to a major vein on the underside of a leaf, where the ant will remain until its eventual death. The process leading to mortality takes 4–10 days, and includes a reproductive stage where fruiting bodies grow from the ant’s head, rupturing to release the fungus’s spores.

In which Steven Quartz Universe is far from fond of Marty.

It was on the moment he called him “Star Child Junior.”

The shades have blinded him. Steven takes offense to this.

Steven was raised and taught by aliens who literally have a rule against this. He grew up hearing NO STEVEN YOU DON’T HURT THE SQUISHY THINGS.

AND STEVEN LEGIT GOES I’LL BREAK THIS SQUISHY THING OVER MY PINKIE FINGER FOR YOU DAD JUST SAY THE WORD.

He can’t even comprehend that this random squishy guy that he could break over his pinkie finger is related to one of his favorite teenage buddies. This pleases him even less.

He’s more than happy to leave them alone if he can get away from the Marty.

“Ants are cool, right? We can bring the ants? Anything to avoid validating this jerk honestly.”

This displeases the Steven even further.

“YOU DID THIS TO MY DAD ONCE AND HE TOLD ME IT FUCKING SUCKED.” 

Steven starts to warm up to- 

Never mind. 

You don’t give his dad the short end of the stick and expect to get away with it.

Sour Cream is just so pumped and proud, whereas Steven is waiting for him to say something so he can offer a polite rebuttal of HE’S EVERYTHING THE ROADIE CODE HAS WARNED ME ABOUT.

Touche.

You’ve bought him. For now…

“WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST LET ME BREAK THE SQUISHY MAN OVER MY PINKIE FINGER????”

“Just lemme at them, dad. Tell me it’s okay. The gems’ll buy that, promise.”

TLDR: I have never seen Steven nearly so disgusted for anywhere as long as he was when Marty appeared because that MAN SCREWED HIS DAD OVER LET HIM AT THEM.

She appears to now be taking auditions. Poor Ant-Man was out the door before he even got to do some cool ant stuff to win her heart. And the worst part about this new Robin infatuation is that it’s not even the cool old Robin that wore green panties and elf slippers. I’ve begged her to help me draw that one and she won’t have it.
