This idea has been sitting on my hard drive for a while. I had a free moment to post it.

Hm. The main body of the article is really mediocre. Generic uber-swarm with standard excessively nasty parasitic stuff, obvious invocation of entomophobia, etc. But the stuff with 2031-A is intriguing, and unfortunately follows from the lousy stuff.
So I think I'm going to remain neutral. I don't see how this could be improved, but the good stuff is just good enough to save the bad stuff.
It's well-written, but the main idea here seems like SCP-by-numbers. It's a generic, deadly, parasitic insect swarm that puppeteers people in a body-horror fashion. It'd make a decent horror movie, I don't doubt, but it isn't fresh enough for me to like it as an SCP.
I was ready to downvote, up until the final part. It's well written, yes, as we've come to expect from you, but it was rather bog-standard. Scary, yes. Unique, not so much. But the last part, where the hosts retain their former personalities, really pulled it out of downvote range, and, hell, into upvote.
