NaMoDesMo 17: Cheese Puff Swarm

In the Temple of Processed Cheese, dark rituals call forth cheese like horrors from the far realm to serve the twisted ravings of the high priest of Cheese Food. When these summonings occur, sometimes matter from the far realm accompanies the summoned beasts, and one of the most common things to make the passage are the tiny spores of the Cheese Puff.  The larval form of a cheese puff is harmless and nearly invisible, taking on the colors of its surroundings. As they grow they feed on local refuse and the toxic by products of other magical experiments. Eventually they grow to the size of a small coins at which point they begin to pupate. Their stationary phase begins to manufacture the cheese powder that gives the adult form its brilliant and unnatural color and the psychotropic effects that allow them to more easily infect new hosts and thus spread.
When the adult form is ready to breed, it sends out a chemical call that attracts all of the adult Cheese Puffs in the area. They swarm toward any warm living body and try to wriggle down its throat. Any cheese puff that manages to do that dissolves in the stomach acid of its victim, leaving behind a mass of eggs that of eggs to attach to the intestinal lining until they hatch, eventually killing the host, which then rots an helps the next generation grow and thrive.
