Chapter 1: Run, Run, Run,
Envy was not a good feeling to have. Unfortunately for Jiro, it was a feeling that she was all too familiar with. While most girls her age were curvy and attractive, Uraraka and Yaomomo come to mind, she was flat and narrow. Even though she was still friends with the other girls, she still fely jelousy at thier plump assets.
She actually thought that she would never end up finding a boyfriend because of it, seeing as how important looks are when it comes to teenage boys. Her theory seemed to be correct as one by one the rest of the girls started getting boyfriends. Yaomomo and Todoroki, Uraraka and Midoriya, Mina and Kirishima, Tsu and Tokoyami, even Hagakure got a boyfriend in Ojiro. Meanwhile, Jiro was still single with her only male friends being from the “Bakusquad” as they liked to call themselves.
It got to a point where she tried to convince herself that she didn’t even want to date anybody, that she would be fine on her own. That lie lasted about twelve seconds before Kaminari rested his head on the top of hers and asked “Whatcha doing?”. Jiro, who had feelings for him that just couldn’t be crushed, immediately blushed and shoved her jacks into his ears. “Forget I asked!” he screamed while getting assaulted by her heartbeats for a few seconds before she retracted them.
“Don’t just put your head on other people, it’s weird” she told him off while trying to keep her composure. “Well you looked sad so I wanted to see what’s up” he explained while still rubbing his ears. It was his helpful and friendly nature that made her like him so much, the fact that he had to intervene when his friends were hurting made her heart sing. “I was just lost in thought, guess I have resting bitch face” she theorized with a shrug.
“Someone as beautiful as you could never have resting bitch face” he gave her a wink before sprinting out of the room to avoid retribution. It was a good thing he left when he did, otherwise he would have seen her face go scarlet at his compliment. I need to go to the bathroom and cool off she decided and left the class quickly. She walked briskly down the halls on the way to the bathroom, so briskly that she didn’t see a student turning the corner until she had already slammed into his chest.
She fell backwards and landed on the floor with a Thud and painfully rubbed her butt while trying to get back up. The student held out a hand and she took it, being lifted back up by the large boy. “Sorry!” she quickly apologized “I was walking to fast and didn’t see you in time” but the boy shook his head and replied “It was my fault, I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings”.
Jiro had seen the boy around before, although she never actually learned his name. He was massive, taller than even Shoji, with Mister Aizawa level facial hair and dark red eyes. Looking at his uniform more closely revealed that he was a support student. “You’re Kyoka Jiro from the hero course right?” the boy asked and she nodded quickly. “Call me Ethan, I again apologize for running into you earlier. I was angry and didn’t see you coming”.
“What got you upset?” she asked, the conversation actually helping her calm down. “My sister is signing up for the “Hide or Melt” competition and that’s really pissing me off” his hand clenched into a fist while his eyes lit up with anger. “I take it your not a fan of those kinds of competitions?” she asked rhetorically and he huffed in anger before irritably saying “No I'm not, yet she still wants to go through with it”.
The “Hide or Melt” competition was an event where some people, the hidden, would run into the woods and try to hide from other people, the seekers, for one hour. If they were successful they would win one million yen, if they weren’t then they would get eaten by the seeker who found them. There were always one hundred seekers and two hundred hidden, yet there never seemed to be any winners.
“I can see why you wouldn’t want her to join, the odds of winning are pretty much zero if past competitions are anything to go by” she nodded her head slowly in understanding. “She’s gonna be a seeker, not a hidden” Ethan said through clenched teeth. “Oh” that confused her “Well then what’s the problem?” she asked, since if she was a seeker it mean she wasn't risking getting eaten. “The fact that she’s okay with eating people who haven’t done anything wrong just” he seemed to be having a hard time articulating his thoughts “It makes me waNT TO SCREAM!”.
Jiro stepped back, suddenly realizing that this kid was the kind of person you want to avoid meeting on the sidewalk. “It’s her decision ultimately” she said after a few seconds of thought “The best you can do is convince her not to do it”. “You’re right” he looked at her with an excited gleam in his eyes “I have to just keep trying until she gives in” he then sprinted down the hallway. “That wasn’t what I-nevermind he’s gone” she tried to call after him but gave up quickly and looked at her watch. Kaminari said he would be heading to a movie about now she started heading for the dorms Hopefully he’s left by the time I get there.
While walking towards the dorms (She takes the long way just in case) she starts thinking about the competition that Ethan mentioned. More specifically, she started thinking about the ability that made it even possible. She knew that Vore hadn’t always been a thing people could do, it had started a few generations after quirks started. She knew there were multiple ways to do it with Oral being the most common method, but there was also Anal, Unbirth, Breast, even Eye Vore (Eye vore has only been recorded once and the pictures were enough to haunt Jiro’s nightmares for weeks).Vore was also only able to be done by females who have reached sexual maturity, sex ed class was where Jiro learned about all this stuff.
There were several effects that consuming someone had on the female body. Weight gain was usually one, although that depended what type of Vore was being done, as well as decreased energy while the body is in the middle of consumption. There were also several ways of disposal, these were based on your genetics and they can’t be learned. Some release remains like normal food, some only release the bones while absorbing the rest, and a few simply absorb everything.
Unlike most girls her age Jiro didn’t know what type she was since, unlike most girls her age, she’s never consumed anybody before. Usually during sex ed in middle school you consume someone in order to find out what type of releaser you are, but Jiro opted out of doing that. Silly as it may sound, she wanted her first time to be special to her. She wanted the first person she consumed to be someone who cared for her and truly wanted to be a part of her, not some random person who decided they were okay with getting digested.
“Ow!” Jiro bumped into someone again, this time being Tsu, and was embarrassed at having hit somebody twice that day. “Hey Tsu, what’s up?” she asked while walking alongside her classmate. “I was just talking to Mister Aizawa about an assignment, why is your face red?” the frog girl pointed out and Jiro used her phone to see that, indeed, her face had turned red without realizing. “I, literally, ran into a guy who was upset that his sister was taking part in the “Hide or Melt” competition. Then I started thinking about Vore in general until I ran into you” Jiro explained, slightly embarrassed that she hadn’t noticed her blush earlier.
“Oh yeah, you’ve never consumed somebody before right?” Tsu asked and Jiro nodded. “You really should give it a try, just to see if it’s right for you. I knew several girls at my middle school who hated how it felt and haven’t consumed anyone since. I also know a few who loved it and consume people all the time. This is really something you should find out sooner rather than later” Tsu advised her, the same advice that most of the girls had given her at some time or another. “All in good time Tsu, I’m in no rush” Jiro gave the same answer she always gives. The two of them walked to the dorms together, talking about various people they knew that had been consumed.
Jiro was in bed, watching a review of an amp she was thinking of buying, when somebody gave her door a knock. “Come in” she called while pausing the video on her laptop. The door opened andKaminari of all people walked in. “What are you doing here?!” she yelled in surprise while pulling her blanket up to her neck to cover her body that was only wearing underwear. “I just got back from that movie I told you about” he said with a shrug while taking a seat on her bed. “If you wanted to talk about it you should have just called” She said embarrassed since he was sitting on her foot. “Well I thought I should have this conversation face to face” he said, his cheeks reddening slightly.
“Did I tell you what the movie was about” she shook her head “Well it’s about this happy-go-lucky guy who falls for this punk rock girl, over the course of the movie they slowly get closer before finally becoming a couple”. “While I was watching it, I felt something. I couldn’t tell what it was at first, but I finally realized it was longing” his face turned even redder “So I decided to ask you something when I got back”.
Jiro sat there, unmoving, while trying to control the frantic pace of her heart. It sounds like he’s about to … is he? she was close to hyperventilating due to sheer excitement but was able to hold it together enough to keep watching. “I don’t expect you to say yes, who would want to with a guy like me but …” he turned towards her with a hopeful expression on his face “Will you go on a date with me?”.
“Yes!” she shouted immediately, causing him to jump in surprise and fall off the bed with a thud. “Really?” he seemed shocked that she said yes so quickly, truthfully Jiro was also surprised she said yes that fast, before jumping in the air and shouting “Woo Hoo!”. In his excitement he rushed towards her, hugged her tightly, and lifted her in the air before spinning around happily. “Thank you so much! Where do you want to go? Maybe a movie or cafe or-” he finally noticed that she was only wearing underwear and froze instantly.
For a few seconds they started at each other, both to afraid to move, before he finally said “Sorry” in barely more than a whisper. “You” her jacks raised menacingly “Idiot!” she stabbed him in both ears and started a heartbeat bombardment. “I-I-I I'm s-o-r-r-y” he managed to croak out while having his brains turned to mush. After several seconds, she finally pulled her jacks out and he collapsed on the bed in a heap. “A cafe sounds nice” she informed him while dragging his limp body towards the door. “Cool” he said weakly while she dragged him into the hallway and left him there right before going back into her room.
Inside, Jiro was a blushing mess who was frantically going through her contacts in search of a certain friend. After finally reaching her contact Jiro called her and, after a few rings, she picked up. “Yaomomo Kaminari just came to my room and asked me out and I said yes and he hugged me but I was only wearing underwear so I shoved my jacks into his ears and told him going to a cafe sounds nice then I left him outside and now I’m talking to you and I think I’m having a panic attack and I don’t know what to do for our date and I need your help” she took in a deep breath of air after finishing her story. “I think I caught most of that” Yaomomo finally responded after a few seconds of silence “You’re going on a date at a cafe and want my help, correct?”. “Yes” Jiro sighed with relief “Can you help me?”.
Kaminari was still lying on the floor outside Jiro’s, having not fully recovered from her assault on his ears. Not only was his head spinning due to almost having his eardrums blown out, he was also recovering from his talk. When he saw the movie he knew that the time to act on his feelings was now, but he didn’t expect Jiro to actually accept his date proposal. He thought she would just roll her eyes and tell him to buzz off, the idea that she might actually say yes never occurred to him. Even though his head still felt like a bomb had gotten dropped on it, he was smiling from ear to ear.
After an indeterminate amount of time he finally stood up, shook his head, and walked back to the elevator. As he rode down he started pondering where he should take her and pulled out his phone to find a nice cafe they could visit. The elevator doors opened and he made to leave, only to hit something large and squishy that forced him back. Looking up he saw Mina standing there, although she looked far different from the last time they spoke. She now had a large, round bulge jutting out in front of her. A bulge that look suspiciously human sized.
“Hey Kaminari!” she squealed in delight and tried to hug him but accidentally hit him with her stomach and slammed him into the back wall. “Whoops, sorry about that” she apologized with an embarrassed smile before backing up to let him out. “Hey Mina, whose in there” he motioned towards her stomach, although he already knew the answer. “Eijiro of course, are you implying I would eat somebody else while dating him?” she gave him an accusatory stare and he quickly defended himself with “Not at all, just making sure there was no miscommunication going on”.
“I’m just messing with you man, follow me to my room and I’ll explain how it all went down” she motioned him to follow her into the elevator and he did so, standing silently next to her while listening to the sounds of his friend getting slowly digested. Once on the fourth floor the two stepped out and entered her room, Mina having to walk carefully in order to avoid knocking anything over. Once she reached her bed, the pink girl laid on her back and took off her top before asking “Can you pull off my pants, I don’t want to tear them when I start gaining weight” and he did as instructed.
“Thanks” she waved her legs once her pants had been removed “now I don’t have to worry about waking up with pants that don’t fit me anymore, that was a real pain when it first happened let me tell you …” and she started going off on a story about the first person she ate, some lady who volunteered for her middle school sex ed class, and Kaminari just silently listened the whole time. After ten minutes, he watched the clock the whole time, she finally ended her story with “… and now I always strip naked when consuming someone”.
“But you’re still wearing underwear and a bra” he pointed out, causing a pillow to get thrown at his face. “Well I’m not gonna strip with you here, darn pervert” she chastived him for his pervertedness and he rubbed his neck with embarrassment. “You said you wanted to tell me how it happened” he reminded her, the pink girls eyes lighting up with excitement.
“That's right, okay let me set the scene” she put her arms in front of herself as if showing off something “Me and Eijiro and hard core making out, I’m talking tongue action and everything. Then he starts getting frisky by lifting up my shirt and feeling my chest so I do the same and start feeling him out too. Then he pushes my against the bed, pulls off my underwear and-” “I think you should skip the part where you two have amazing sex, I’d rather not hear all the details about how awsome Kirishimas dick is” he intterupts her.
“But that’s the best part” she whines, flailing her arms in a fit of annoyance. “Maybe for you, but I really don’t want to know what my friend is like in bed” he admits. “Don’t you mean what your friend was like in bed” she turns to her bloated stomach and starts rubbing it, now with the human outline far fainter than before. “Yeah” since Mina isn't looking at him she missed the look that crosses his face for half a second “what he was like”. “Well if you really don’t want to know, I’ll just skip to the end” Mina stops rubbing her stomach and turns back to him.
“Once we finish, Eijiro tells me just how much I mean to him. He says he would do anything for, even let himself get eaten if I wanted to. I asked him if he was serious and he said he was, then I asked him if he wanted to. After that, he basically shoved his way down my throat. After about two minutes he was fully inside, and loving every second of it. The two of us talked for a few minutes until he ran out of oxygen and fell unconscious. After that I started breaking him down and decided to head back here, where I ran into you” she finished her story with a happy grin.
“What was the last thing you two said to each other?” Kaminari questioned “I hope it was romantic”. “He told me “Make sure my sick gains don’t go to waste” right before passing out, although I'm not sure if he heard me tell him that I will. At any rate” she slapped her stomach “i’m gonna have boobs like Yaomomo by the time he finishes packing on me”. Kaminari smiled, stood up with a stretch, and headed for the door while saying “Have fun, I got a date to plan”. The surprised cry of “Date?!” made him smile as he closed the door.
He got to his room and locked the door before sitting at his desk. “I need a plan” he said out loud before picking up a piece of paper and brainstorming various ideas on it. “Not too elaborate” he said “I gotta keep it simple. Less things can go wrong that way”. He spent thirty straight minutes coming up with the perfect plan, starting over time and time again until it was to his liking. “Alright then” he cracked his knuckles like it was an action movie “Let's get to work.
The next morning
Uraraka hit the snooze button on her alarm and sat up, stretching in the process. “New day, new adventure” she said her usual morning pick me up and started her morning routine. She showered, dried herself off, put on underwear, brushed her teeth, put on a little makeup, dried and combed her hair, put on her uniform, grabbed her backpack, and headed out the door. She was going to turn towards the elevator when she saw a red arrow that had been painted on the window in front of her door.
“Huh?” she said in confusion before looking down the hallway, which is where the arrow pointed, and saw more red arrows on the walls, floor, and ceiling all pointing in the same direction. Not sure what was going on but curious nonetheless, she slowly made her way down the hall. Eventually she reached the last room, Mina’s room, and saw that there were several arrows around the doorframe that were all pointing inside. Feeling less and less sure about the situation the longer it went on, Uraraka slowly turned the door handle and gingerly opened the door.
Inside was covered with red arrows, all pointing at the bed where mina was covered with a black blanket with only the top of her head showing. “Mina?” Uraraka asked unsurely while creeping towards the bed “Are you okay?”. She didn’t respond as Uraraka closed in on the bed. Eventually she was standing right over the bed, hand outstretched and ready to rip the blanket off.
RING RING! RING RING!
Uraraka jumped so hard she fell backwards onto Mina’s table and knocked it over. After a second of pure panic, she realized the noise was her phone which she quickly checked to see Iida calling. “Hello?” she asked, a quaver in her voice. “I was just calling to see what was keeping you this morning, considering you are usually always on time to breakfast” Iida explained in his usual robotic tone.
“Sorry I just-” she looked over at the bed, noticing what looked like dark stains on the blankets “Can you come up here, maybe with Deku too?”. “Of course, whatever you need” Iida said immediately before calling for Deku to come with him and getting back on the phone “What do you need our help with?”. “I think something bad happened” she said, her voice shaking slightly “and I don’t think I can face it on my own. I need you guys”. “What do you mean?” Iida asked confused, but Uraraka couldn’t answer. “We’re on your floor, are you in-what the?” Uraraka could hear Iida’s voice from down the hallway and she called out “I’m in here!”.
After a few seconds both Iida and Deku ran into the room and looked around. “What does this all mean?” Iida asked while Uraraka clung to her boyfriend for dear life. “I don’t know” she said after hugging Deku for a few seconds “But I couldn’t bring myself to pick up the blanket alone”. “Well there’s no point in waiting” Iida marched over to the bed and grabbed the dark blanket “Are you two ready for what we might see” Deku nodded and, after steeling her nerves, Uraraka did the same. Iida ripped off the blanket to reveal Mina.
“AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!” Both Deku and Uraraka screamed in absolute horror while Iida went completely still, the color draining from his face and leaving him ghost white. On the bed was Mina, absolutely covered with blood and stab wounds. Her arms and legs were riddled with stabs, her left arm actually seemed to be falling apart due to the severity of the damage. Her chest also had multiple stab wounds, although most of them couldn’t be seen since there was a white poster board taped to her chest that had the words “You better run, better run, better run,” written in her blood. Her face was completely unrecognizable due to the damage, only one eye was even visible through all the blood and injuries.
Deku and Uraraka quickly ran out of the room and vomited in the hallway, Iida almost following suit but managing to keep it together. The couple then proceed to hug each other tightly, despite smelling like vomit, and began to cry into the others shoulder. Iida stepped out of the room, appearing to have aged ten years since entering, and pulled out his phone to call someone. “Mister Aizawa” his voice had never sounded so shaky “Please come to Ashido’s room quickly, she’s been … killed”. Iida slowly explained the details while Deku and Uraraka clung to each other for dear life and sobbed over the loss of their friend.
Later that day
Ethan was feeling pretty good about himself after the day he had. He had done a test in history class that he knew he aced, he managed to win ten thousand yen by stacking ten soda cans on his head, and he was able to convince his sister to not go to the “Hide or Melt” competition by making her realize that eating people would mean she would need to buy new clothes. All in all, his day had gone great.
“I feel kind of unsafe now” his friend that he was walking with Mizu said suddenly. “How come?” he asked in confusion and Mizu simply pointed towards the Class 1-A building that was still covered with police even this many hours later. “Oh yeah” Ethan said dismissively “You probably shouldn’t worry about it”. “Why not” Mizu asked, eyebrow raised, and Ethan explained “I heard she had eaten her boyfriend right before she was killed. My guess is that’s why she was killed”. Ethan huffed “Seriously, a hero course student who’s okay with being turned into fat, pathetic. Not to mention her being okay with doing that to him, just as ridiculous”.
“I’m pretty sure the only people here who don't like Vore are you and me” Mizu said dryly and Ethan retourted with “Not true, there are those guys we talk to from Russia who also don’t like it”. “I don’t think Antonov flew all the way to Japan just to kill a girl he’s never even heard of before, Ethan” Mizu shot back, leading to an argument between the two boys as they headed for their own dorms.
Despite the argument, Ethan still felt that he had a pretty good day.
Chapter 2: After you
Aizawa, Ethan, and Kaminari all meet some people.
What is and isn't murder?
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Aizawa sat in the teachers lounge alone, completely drained by the day he just had. That morning he got a call from Iida saying that Ashido was killed, something that turned out to be true once he rushed over to the dorm to investigate. Classes were immediately canceled for 1-A as all eighteen of them were interviewed to see what they knew.
The interviews ended up being a waste of time since no one had anything useful to say. Kaminari almost attacked the interviewer when they subtly accused him of possibly doing it since he was the last person to see Ashido alive, something that didn’t surprise Aizawa since he knew how close the two were. Investigating the crime scene was slightly more helpful as they uncovered several interesting things.
The poster board that was attached to Ashido actually had writing on the back that read “She broke the unbreakable” which a clear nod to Kirishima. It was also discovered that the killer had removed blood from the walls before painting the red arrows, probably to make them stand out more. The knife that killed her was discovered to be buried deep within her stomach, covered with so much blood that the police almost didn't notice it. Then there was the fact about the stomach was empty, a fact that was still bothering Aizawa even all those hours later.
“Aizawa” a voice broke through the heroes thoughts and he looked up to see All Might, looking as drained as he did. “Hey” he said shortly before turning to look back at the table, All Might taking a seat next to him. “Any hint as to why?” All Might asked and Aizawa turned back to him, thought for a second, then said “Her stomach was empty”.
“What?” All Might asked, confused due to how seemingly random the information was. “Kaminari said she had eaten Kirishima right before he saw her, meaning that at the time of her death there still should have been a large amount of his remains left. But her stomach was empty” Aizawa explained. “Perhaps she fully digested him” All Might threw out there but Aizawa just shook his head and said “There wasn’t enough fat on her body to have fully digested him”. “What are you saying?” All Might asked, still confused by the situation, and Aizawa tiredly said “The killer, for whatever reason, took Kirishima’s remains with them”.
All Might sat there in silence for a few seconds, utterly confused why someone would take the remains of his ex-student with them, before getting up and leaving Aizawa alone with his thoughts. Two students gone in one day he thought sadly this is going to affect the class for a long time . After a few more seconds of being consumed by weariness, Aizawa stood up and headed to his room.
Once inside his room he sat down at his desk and started doing paperwork, the monotony of it helping to put his mind at ease. He spent several hours sitting alone and letting the paperwork overtake him, finally finishing around one in the morning. He washed up and was about to sleep when he noticed, through a slight crack in between the curtain blocking the balcony door, a letter.
He swiftly made his way over, opened the door, and picked up the letter. It had the words To Eraserhead on the front in red ink. How did this even get here Aizawa wondered while looking around to see if anyone was lurking about. After not spotting anyone he opened the letter and quickly read the short message that was written inside.
She was the first, and hopefully the last.
Aizawa read over the note several times, just to make sure he memorised it perfectly, before heading back into his room, grabbing his phone, and calling the principal. “Aizawa?” Nezu’s groggy voice said from the other end. “I think I got a note from Mina Ashido’s killer” Aizawa said directly, wanting to be as straightforward as possible. “What did it say?” Nezu’s voice went deadly serious in an instant.
“She was the first, and hopefully the last” Aizawa conveyed the message “That means the killer may strike again unless we find out what their motivation is”. “I’m heading over right now” Nesu said, Aizawa hearing movement in the background implying that he was getting dressed, “Let's have an entire staff meeting at the school, I’ll gather them all and meet with you in fifteen minutes”. “Yes sir” Aizawa responded right before hanging up the phone and heading over to the door.
“Eraser?” a small voice called out while he walked down the hallway. Turning to his left revealed Eri, standing in her doorway and looking very tired. “What are you doing up?” Aizwa knelt down beside her as she stepped out of her room and stood in the hall with him. “I heard Thirteen say that Kirishima is gone, is he?” she asked with a sad expression.
“Yes he is” Aizawa said softly, her head dropping in disappointment when hearing that. “What happened to him?” she then asked, causing Aizawa to start to feel worried. Explaining to her the hows and whys of what Kirishima did would take a long time, time that neither of them could spare since she needed sleep and he was supposed to head to the meeting. “It’s too complicated to explain right now” he put his hand lightly on her shoulder “Ask me about it tomorrow and I’ll tell you”.
“Okay” Eri nodded and went back into her room, leaving Aizawa alone in the hallway again. Better head down stairs he thought while stepping into the elevator. He had no idea how to explain to her what happened to Kirishima. If he just told her “He died” she would get the wrong idea, but there was no way for her to understand what he did at her age. This is why I never wanted kids the thought tiredly as the door opened to the first floor.
Surprisingly, there were a few teachers already waiting there including Yamada and All Might. “Yo Aizawa” Yamada called while walking over, All Might trailing right behind him “Nezu said you got a note”. “Yeah” Aizawa showed off the note to the two and the three of them started heading for the school while discussing possible motives. Eventually they reached the school and were heading for the largest meeting room, only to run into Power Loader in the middle of an argument with one of his students.
“What exactly do you think you’re doing, sneaking in here so late at night?” Power Loader said to the large boy who responded by sighing loudly and saying “Working on my stuff, I already told you that”. “What’s the problem here?” Aizawa asked, although he was pretty sure he already knew the answer, and the other teacher said “I swung by the support studio to grab something before the meeting, only to see Ethan already inside and working. It’s hours past curfew yet he still thought it was a good idea to break into the school just to work on his stuff”. “Time waits for no man!” Ethan declared loudly “Recent events made me realize that I don’t have all the time in the world and should hurry up with all my projects”.
“What do you mean?” Aizawa asked, curious what exactly the boy was referring to. “I’m talking about Mina getting turned into a pin cushion, what else?” the boy said crassly, All Might making an audible noise of disapproval at his wording. “I realized that I could die at any moment from super villain attacks to school fairing serial killers to getting straight up eaten. I have to get a move on with my stuff just in case I bite the dust.” Ethan explained his reasoning “Although I kind of doubt the killer is gonna come after to if I’m being honest”.
“Why not?” Aizawa asked, intrigued by what the boy might say, and Ethan said “I’m about eighty percent sure that Mina was killed because she ate her boyfriend. The fact that she melted him down then immediately got gutted is too much of a coincidence. That may have been overkill, accidental pun, but I don’t really blame the guy for taking her out”. “I would watch what I say if I were you” Aizawa had a dangerous tone in his voice “That’s my student you’re talking about” but Ethan laughed at the implied threat.
“So it’s okay to be casual about people getting melted and turned into fat on a bitches ass, but if they get stabbed then suddenly it's considered too much. You guys are so hypocritical, it’s probably a good thing I didn’t end up in the hero course” Ethan shook his head in disappointment. When he saw the slightly confused look on Aizawa’s face he elaborated “I tried to enter the hero course but they wouldn’t let me so I ended up in support instead. Seeing as I could have ended up with a teacher as shitty as you, I probably dodged a bullet there”.
Ethan turned away from the teachers and started walking down the hallway towards the exit, a smug smile on his face as he said “I’ll get out of your hair since you need to get to a meeting. See you tomorrow”. He quickly made his way down the hall, leaving the teachers staring after him until Aizawa finally said “I hope you discipline his tomorrow for the things he said just now”. “I will” Power Loader agreed and the group of teachers finally started heading towards the meeting room together.
Ethan made his way back to the support dorm, annoyed that he was forced to leave. He actually snuck into the school relatively frequently and just used Mina’s spectacularly gruesome murder as a cover. Eraserhead really was bad at his job if he lets his students, who were supposed to be heroes who saved lives, kill people. Just because it’s Vore somehow makes it okay.
“This is such bullshit” he said out loud “Why are some kinds of murder totally radical, yet other kinds are bad news bears? Either make all murder legal or none at all, having it be somewhere in the middle is fucking stupid”. Ethan shook his head at the nonsensical laws as he was walking past the 1-B dorms. Just when he was about to pull out his phone and play some music, a voice above him called out “Hey you down there!”.
He looked up and saw Setsuna, that girl that can break herself apart, on her balcony above him. “What’s up?” he asked “Besider yourself of course” he smiled at his own joke. “Can you stay right there?” she called down and receiving a confused “Why?” in response. “I need your help with something but you have to wait for me to get down first” she explained, Ethan still thoroughly confused by what was happening but giving a reluctant “Sure?”. “Great!” her face lit up “I’ll be right there” and she disappeared from the balcony. I wonder what she could want Ethan wondered while looking around to try and spot something interesting to do while she headed down.
Suddenly, something fell from above and landed on Ethan. It was wet and tight, as well as trapping him up to his elbows. “What the hell?!” he yelled as the tight prison quickly reached his waist. Within a few seconds he was completely encased in whatever it was that was containing him. HHe was pushed through tight, moist tubes before being deposited in a larger chamber. He was stuck in a fetal position while a fluid started pooling around his ankles, the realization of what happened finally dawning on him.
“Thanks for this” Setsuna said from outside “I was hungry and thought you might fill me up a bit”. Ethan’s started violently shaking to free himself from the fleshy prison that was Setsuna’s stomach but wasn’t having much luck. From what he could tell, she probably landed on him from above ass first and pulled him through her intestines until he reached her stomach. “Please let me go” he said as calmly as he could, the enclosed space starting to get to him. “Sorry but you’re food now” she rubbed her stomach and slowly started making her way back inside.
Ethan started hyperventilating as the reality of what was about to happen hit him. Despite him knowing how it was going to end, he still tried to reason with the girl by saying “Just let me go, I won’t even tell anybody that you tried to kill me”. “Like I said, you’re food now. Just accept it and enjoy the rest of your life. I know quite a few people who masturbated while inside me when they realized they couldn’t get out” she told him casually while entering the elevator and heading up to her floor. “Please” he was having a hard time keeping his voice at a normal volume “just let me go”. “For the last time no” she said firmly as the elevator opened and she stepped out “Just be quiet and digest”.
Ethan was on the verge of a complete mental breakdown inside her as he gripped the sides of his head with enough force to draw blood. “Let me go, let me go, let me go.” he whispered over and over as Setsuna laid on the bed to go to sleep. “Goodnight whoever you are” she said sleepily before drifting off, leaving Ethan all alone with the slowly filling stomach.
The next day
Kendo woke up and stretched, looking around her room as the morning light filled it. After spending a few minutes taking in the scenery she stood up and got ready. She quickly cleaned up and got dressed before heading down to the first floor, running into Tsunotori in the elevator. She spent a few minutes eating breakfast and chatting with her classmates, Tesutesu was being his usual enthusiastic self, when she realized that Tokage hadn’t come down yet. Odd, she’s not usually late Kendo thought before heading up to check on her.
The elevator doors opened on Tokage’s floor and Kendo made her way down it, relieved to not see red arrows on the walls. After what happened to Class 1-A we can’t be too careful she thought right as she reached the girls room. “Tokage!” she yelled while knocking on the door “Are you okay?!”. On the third knock the door opened slightly, revealing that it had been left open.
“Hello?” Kendo said as she opened the door and slowly walked inside. There was a large green blanket sprawled in the middle of the room, a blanket that seemed to be covering something. A sudden wave of dread hit Kendo square in the chest and caused her to freeze on the spot. After a few seconds she was able to compose herself enough to reach out and pull of the blanket.
It was worse than she had feared. Laying on the floor was the barely recognizable body of Setsuna Tokage. She had been burned to almost beyond recognition, the only reason Kendo could tell it was her was due to the fact that some of her hair had survived. Kendo took a step back in horror before realizing that a message had been burned into the ceiling that she hadn’t noticed before.
Cause I’m coming after you
The ominous message, combined with the death of her friend, was enough to push Kendo over the edge and make her run away. She sprinted down the hall and furiously slammed the elevator button over and over again until it opened, at which point she basically dived inside and started hammering the first floor button until the doors closed. She put her hands over her face and started crying, not sure what else to do in the situation. A killer had snuck into the dorm and killed one of the students, yet no one was the wiser. Tokage was the only person on her floor, but it still shouldn't have been so easy to sneak in and kill someone.
The doors opened and Tesutesu turned towards her, saw the look on her face, and quickly ran to her side. “What happened?” he looked her dead in the eye as tears were still streaming down her face. Pull yourself together, you’re the class rep she chastived herself while trying to calm down enough to explain. After a few minutes she finally managed to pull herself together enough to talk, by which point most of the class had gathered outside the elevator. “Tokage” she finally said “is dead”.
Later that day
Kaminari made his way down the hallway after school, head full of troubling thoughts. Someone else had been killed the previous night, this time from 1-B. People couldn’t tell if it was the same person or just a copycat, and it was starting to affect people. All that day almost everyone he saw looked anxious and had quick head movements, as if they were hopped up on too much coffee. All in all, it had been a stressful day.
He looked down the hallway and saw Bakugo walking by himself, earbuds in and singing something to himself. Kaminari almost ran up to him but decided against it, realizing that it might go poorly if he did. While the entire class had taken Kirishima’s and Mina’s loss hard, none had taken it as hard as Bakugo. It made sense, Bakugo had a hard time making friends so losing two of them on the same day must have hit him pretty hard. Kaminari wanted to help him feel better, he just didn’t know how.
“Hey” a hand lightly touched his shoulder and he turned to see Jiro looking at him, concern in her eyes. “What’s up?” he put on a big smile and looked at her brightly, hoping his happy attitude would rub off on her. “How are you holding up, with everything that's happened?” she asked, causing his smile to waver for a split second. “Well, you know” he shrugged “I did lose two close friends recently so … well, you know”. “I almost forgot” he cut her off right before she pushed the subject further “can we take a rain check on that date? I know I’m the one that brought it up, but with everything that’s happened I don’t think now is the time to do it”.
“I was gonna say the same thing” she said sadly, causing his heart to crack at her sad expression. “Things suck right now Jiro” he put his hand on her shoulder reassuringly “But they won’t stay that way forever. Once this stuff is behind us, we can go to that cafe and have a nice date. Until then, we just have to stay strong and keep moving forward”. “You’re so cheesy” she said quietly, a smile forming on her face nonetheless. “Let’s head back to the dorms, we’ve had a long day” he advised, the two of them walking side by side out of the school.
They were halfway to the dorms when a large boy Kaminari didn’t recognize walked up to him suddenly. The boy had a disheveled support student uniform on and looked like he’d been doing mounds of cocaine. His was twitching constantly, eyes constantly looking around as if trying to find something, and he kept running his hand over his facial scruff.
“You’re Ethan right?” Jiro asked the large boy whose eyes immediately fixed on her. The boy gave Jiro the most unnerving stare Kaminari had ever seen, so unnerving that Jiro actually took a few steps back from the boy as if he might attack. “The eyes see all” the boy said, his voice hoarse as though he had been yelling recently. “What?” Kaminari asked confused and the boys eyes went back to him, fixing him with a stare that was far less terrifying. “The eyes know your secrets” the large boy suddenly grabbed Kaminari’s shoulders with an intense amount of force “They know everyone’s secrets”.
“Ethan!” another boy came running up to them before Kaminari could even begin to respond to what the larger boy said. “Sorry about him” the second boy pried Ethan off Kaminari “Something happened to him last night and it really screwed him up. I think he messed up his medication dosage or something. I’ve been taking care of him all day since he refused to go see Recovery Girl. As you can see, he’s kind of out of it”. The second boy grabbed Ethan’s arm and started leading him back towards their dorm, Ethan saying “We are all just meat for the ravenous” and the other boy responding “I know buddy”.
“Well that was weird” Kaminari said before turning towards Jiro, who still looked rattled from the encounter. “Do you know that kid” Kaminari pointed his thumb in the direction of the two boys. Jiro shaking her head as if to clear it before nodding. “I ran into him in the hallway a few days ago. He was ranting about not wanting his sister to be in the “Hide or Melt” and I told him it’s up to her, which he took to mean that he should bug her over and over until she gives in”.
“Oh” Kaminari looked over at the two departing figures “guess I don’t blame the guy. I wouldn’t want my sister to enter the competition either, seeing as none of the hidden ever survive”. “She’s going to be a seeker actually” Jiro started heading towards their dorm and Kaminari followed “Ethan didn’t like that she would be eating people. Said that its messed up that she was down with eating people who haven't done anything wrong”.
“What do you think?” Kaminari asked, observing Jiro’s face closely as they walked. “Once they enter the competition as a hidden, they are basically already food. They know the risk, so I don’t see a problem with them getting eaten. What about you?” she turned to look at him, only to notice how intently he had already been looking at her. She blushed and turned away while Kaminari answered “I see his point. Vore has always seemed morally dubious to me, so the idea that someone wouldn’t like it isn’t that far fetched”.
The two of them walked in silence for the rest of the walk, finally entering the dorm after a few minutes. Upon entering, they saw several camera bots positioned throughout the first floor. “What’s up with these little guys” Kaminari knelt down to look at one as Iida quickly walked over and explained “These are the new safety measures the school has put in place. There will be several on every floor to make sure no one else is killed. If they see anything suspicious then they will call the teachers immediately. That means no more sneaking out after curfew for late night snacks Kaminari”.
“Aww man” Kaminari whined and Jiro slapped the back of his head with one of her jacks before saying “Quit complaining, if this means I don’t have to worry about getting murdered in my sleep then I’m all for it. Besides,” she knelt down next to Kaminari and whispered “with these things around we’ll be able to go on that date sooner”. “Yeah” Kaminari’s face lit up like a christmas tree “you’re right! I love these little guys” and he proceeded to hug one of the camera bots tightly.
After that Jiro and Kaminari went to their own rooms, Kaminari deep in thought. If what Iida said is true, then those bots are gonna be a real pain real quick he entered his room and sat down on the bed, still thinking. He decided to step out on the balcony for a minute, hoping the air will help him think better. While doing so, he saw Ethan running away from the other boy while screaming “My flesh belongs to no one!”. “I know that! Please slow down!” the other boy yelled while full on sprinting after his friend.
“That Ethan is a pretty interesting guy” Kaminari said out loud while the two boys continued to run around below him “I think I’ll keep my eye on him”.
I wonder why the killer took Kirishima's remains.
Also Ethan refers to people by their first name instead of their last (Shoto instead of Todoroki, Setsuna instead of Tokage ect.)
Chapter 3: Sleeping at night
All Might learns more about Ethan and Kaminari gets ready for a date.
Who will be killed next?
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
All Might was taking a walk around the campus, carefully observing the students going to and fro. It had been over a month since the murder of Tokage and no one else had died, meaning the security measures were working. People were finally starting to feel comfortable again, something that gave the former hero joy. Just that morning All Night saw a girl walking down the hallway with a bloated stomach, meaning that she felt comfortable enough to freely walk around without fear of getting killed.
Even though no one else had been murdered that didn’t mean the search for the killer had slowed down one bit. The police and staff were still hard at work trying to see who killed the two students, but they hadn’t come up with any solid leads yet. There were several suspects that could have done it but without more evidence they couldn’t detain them.
A person suddenly bumped into All Might, who hadn’t been looking forward at the time, and he quickly faced ahead to see Ethan standing in front of him. “Sorry sir” he said quickly before moving around All Might and quickly away. All Might watched him leave, almost amused by the coincidental appearance of the boy.
Of all the possible suspects they had, Ethan was at the top of the list in terms of probability. His conversation with the teachers the night Tokage was killed set off huge red flags for them. Not only that, but for a few weeks afterwards the boy acted very strangely. He was very twitchy, constantly looking over his shoulder and acting overly nervous which was all incredibly suspicious behavior. Then there was the incident with Midnight.
All Might had gone to see recovery girl due to Bakugo accidentally causing a piece of rubble to slice his hand open when the other teacher suddenly rushed in. “Crazy bastard” Midnight grumbled as she sat down while the nurse looked over her wound, All Might deciding to look as well. Midnight had what appeared to be a pencil stabbed eraser deep into her shoulder, blood leaking from the wound.
“What on earth happened to you?” he asked in utter confusement so she turned to him and explained “I asked one of the support students a question and he got it wrong, which means I was going to eat him. He kept saying that he got it right, even showed me the book that proved he was right, but I just kept swallowing. I was all the way up to his legs when that Ethan kid suddenly screamed “He’s right you fucking bitch!” and stabbed this pencil into my shoulder. I spit out the other student and tried to grab Ethan but he sprinted out of the class before I could”.
All Might gasped, shocked by how brazen the attack was, and immediately headed for the door to find the violent student. “Where are you going?” Midnight asked and he didn’t even look over his shoulder to respond “Finding your student”. He quickly walked up in down the corridors before heading up to the roof to see the surrounding area better.
When All Might reached the roof he was shocked to see the very student he was looking for sitting on a chair while smoking a cigar. “You know that cigars aren’t allowed on campus” he headed towards the boy who didn’t bother to look in his direction while snarkily replying “Yet straight up murder is A-okay as long as you do it the right way”. All Might sighed and stood next to the boy, looking down at his worn out face with sadness.
“You shouldn’t have attacked Midnight” All Might stated matter of factly but only earning an angry sigh from the boy. “My friend got it right but she still tried to eat him, that’s fucked up and I won’t stand for that shit” Ethan snarled before putting out his cigar. “That doesn’t give you the right to assault a teacher” All Might said sternly, trying to get the boy to understand what he did wrong.
“What do you want me to do?” Ethan asked, a tired look in his eyes. “Go and apologize to Midnight for what you did, try and make it up to her. She will tell you what the punishment is, I just wanted to find you” All Might said, hoping the boys would actually apologize. “Fine” the boy gave in rather quickly and headed for the stairs “But if she tries to eat me then I’m shoving a pencil in her eye”. The boy headed down and the teacher sighed, hoping things would get sorted out.
Back in the present, All Might decided to have a question that was bothering him answered. “Ethan!” he called out, the large boy stopping to turn back towards him, “Come here, I want to ask you a quick question”. Ethan did so, quickly heading towards the teacher and saying “In case you were wondering how things went with Midnight she made me her personal sex slave for a month. Then I almost bit her nipple off and she made me clean her apartment for two months instead”. “That wasn’t what I was going to ask” All Might said, shuddering at the thought of having a nipple bitten off, “I just wanted to know why you hate vore so much”.
“Oh that” Ethan smiled “That’s quite a long story. A story that, fortunately, I already uploaded onto Yotube. Look it up there if you really want to know since I really don't feel like reciting my whole rant a second time. Look up Fiery Abaddon and it should be in the first few results” with that the boy walked away, leaving All Might standing alone on the sidewalk.
Deciding to take the boys advice All Might headed for his apartment and hopped onto his computer. After going onto Yotube he looked up the name Ethan had said and saw a video titled “Vore: A pox on society”, quickly clicking on it. The video seemed to be filmed on a tripod mounted camera in an empty classroom, the desks and chairs having been pushed to the back wall in order to make space.
“Hello there” Ethan said, dressed in casual clothes and standing in the middle of the room “I am a student at the illustrious U.A. Highschool. I came there because I knew it was renowned for its hero course and expected the people there to share my ideology. But when I tried to enter the hero course I was denied, managing to get in by joining the support course. Once school actually started, I realized that I had made a mistake in thinking that the school would be any different from my previous ones”.
Ethan sighed “When it first started things seemed alright, my fellow support students seemed nice and the school was state of the art in many ways. Then my first class started, the hero Midnight being my teacher for that period. She asked one of the girls a question, I forget what it was about, and the girl accidentally said the wrong answer. Midnight then proceeded to shove the girl up her vagina, turn her into cum, and sprayed her onto the rest of the class. She told us that any wrong answers would result in being vored, apparently as motivation to study hard. That's when I realized that this school was just as corrupt and evil as all the others”.
Ethan began slowly pacing, eyes fixed on the floor as he spoke. “I assumed that since the school had such a renowned hero course that the students and staff would value life highly, unfortunately that wasn’t the case. Before the end of class I lost two more classmates, a guy who got shoved into her breasts so that they started leaking milk and a girl who got swallowed the old fashioned way. That wasn’t even the end of it since I saw fifteen different girls walking the halls with enlarged stomachs before the day was out, some of them even had multiple people inside”.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, that a school full of people who wanted to make tomorrow a better place were totally fine with killing people just to satiate their hunger. It was just as twisted as my previous school, making me realize that nowhere was safe from the blight of vore. I saw good, kind people being shit out of a bitches asshole because they decided getting killed would be a fun experience. I tried telling people how fucked up it all was but that only succeeded in making enemies, something I really didn’t need”. He then stopped, brought his hand up to his chin as if thinking about something, then lowered his hand and continued on.
“You know what’s fucked up? That stabbing someone with a pencil is seen as bad but eating someone after they got the right answer to a question isn’t. That getting brutally stabbed to death is horrific but melting your boyfriend in your stomach is totally acceptable. That a killer who only has two victims is being hunted down with the full might of the law but Midnight, who has eaten god knows how many students, is allowed to walk around without anyone batting an eye”.
Ethan started pacing quickly, his breathing growing more erratic the longer he talked. “Most people think that getting turned into fat on a bitches ass is a perfectly fine way to die, most people see vore as liberating for women for some fucking reason, most people are okay with the possibility that their life might only be worth a toilet flush. Those people make me sick, their disease of acceptance proliferating throughout society so that speaking out against the norm is seen as odd”.
All Might could easily tell the boy was rapidly growing more agitated, running his hands through his hair over and over as he rapidly walked back and forth across the room. “I tried to get people to stop but that just made them mad. I ended up getting chased constantly by girls who didn’t like my dissenting opinion. Eventually one managed to catch me and shoved me up her ass, melting me down and shitting me out onto my own bed just for fun. They thought that was it, that I was done for and they wouldn’t have to worry about me anymore. They were wrong”.
Ethan suddenly turned towards the camera, fixing it with a stare so intense All Might felt hair raise on the back of his neck. “Most people who get vored only do so once, unfortunately I’m not like most people. My quirk lets me regenerate from any injury, even death. I have been shit, cummed, and milked out more times than there are stars in the sky. Each death has been agonizing, and each time I wake up afterwards even more so. Once the school at large realized what I could do, getting chased and consumed by some fucking cunt became a regular occurance. All I want to do is die, to melt away in some bitches gut and not wake up again. But I can’t, I have to keep living in this hell where people only see me as a reusable snack”.
Ethan had tears streaming down his face, his whole body shaking from all the emotional strain he was under. “I’ve done the best to make my life mean something, creating inventions that can hopefully improve the lives of those who deserve it. That’s why I hate seeing people throw their lives away just to become a pile of shit, because they can be so much more. If people were willing to fight tooth and fucking nail for their lives, the world would be a better place. Until then we have people like the mysterious killer who see through the bullshit they’ve been fed their whole lives and realize how fucked up things are. I can only hope that these murders inspire more people to stand up and take charge of their lives”.
Ethan wiped his eyes quickly before continuing “I was recently attacked and consumed by Setsuna Tokage, a girl from my schools secondary hero course. I thought I was gonna get melted down like usual, but then something miraculous happened. As my body finally started turning into sludge, I suddenly felt Setsuna’s body get hit with a tremendous amount of electricity. The electrical barrage continued on until both she and I were fried beyond recognition. Of course I came back and managed to wake up just in time to see the murderer leave, wielding what looked like an electrified glove on their right hand”.
Ethan smiled widely at the memory, his face resembling an evil leer more than a happy grin. “I don’t know who this killer is, but I do know that we need more people like them. If there were more who were willing to stand up and fight back against the infested system then we may see a better world come to fruition. If more people were willing to take control of their lives then a brighter dawn will be ours. I don’t know where you are killer but know this, I thank you for your timely intervention with Setsuna. It made me realize that just talking wasn’t enough, I need to actually do things in order to achieve my goal”.
He spread his arms wide as if to show off something, a maniacal grin on his face. “That’s why I started this channel and the related website, so people with opinions like mine can congregate and discuss their thoughts on the current state of things. Even if the heroes come and try to silence me, my quirk means that I’ll always come back. So come my brothers and sisters, join me so that the bright dawn we seek may finally reach us”.
The video ended there, All Might letting out the breath he hadn’t even realized that he had been holding. This was beyond anything he ever expected to hear, the boys call to arms frightening in its implications. Quickly scrolling through the comments he saw that even though a lot were negative, most saying that Ethan should shut up and enjoy getting eaten, many were supportive of his message. All Might looked at the other videos on the channel and saw that they were starting to pick up steam with the most recent one reaching twenty thousand views.
Remembering there was a website as well All Might found a link and clicked on it, going through the sites forums and seeing many different people who all agreed that vore was an evil act that had to be stopped. Realizing that he had to get the word out on this, All Might quickly messaged the other teachers about what he found. Shortly afterwards the entire staff got a message from the principal for a staff meeting. “Let’s hope dealing with him puts an end to this” All Might muttered as he headed for the school. While walking he began to wonder something.
Why did Ethan tell me about the video?
Later that day
Kaminari was walking around the campus, something he liked doing right before curfew since it allowed him to get rid of excess energy. While walking he pulled out his phone and sent a text to Jiro asking if she wanted to have their date soon. Putting the phone back in his pocket he continued walking before seeing something that made him stop.
Beside each dorm was a large bin that was solely dedicated to people’s remains once they had been vored. They were pretty gross since their contents were usuals piles of shit, milk, cum, and bones. That’s what made it all the stranger that Ethan was digging around in one.
“Yo!” Kaminari called out to the other boy who stopped to look at him, two bags of bones in his hands. “Why are you searching through there?” Kaminari walked up to the other boy, incredibly confused by the situation. “I’m trying to see if I can apply my quirk to dead bodies” the boy answers “and these are just lying here for free”.
“What makes you think that can work?” Kaminari asks, suddenly intrigued by the idea. “I’ve been developing a device that can mimic my revival abilities. So far it’s worked pretty well on plants and now it’s time for human trials” Ethan shakes the two bags before heading off towards the school. “You know that school is closed right?” Kaminari asks since Ethan will simply be told to leave if he tries to get inside. “Details my friend, just details” the other boy says cheerfully while walking away.
Kaminari decided that now is the time to head back to the dorms and he does so, deep in thought the whole time. He had looked into Ethan shortly after Tokage’s death and found out several interesting things about him. The first was that he was rather popular among the girls since his quirk let him come back after being killed, which seemed like a pretty raw deal to Kaminari. The second was that he is apparently a troublemaker since he has a habit of breaking rules, like the time he stabbed Midnight with a pencil.
More recently Kaminari came across a Yotube channel run by Ethan that pretty clearly outlined his view on vore, and it wasn’t positive. Seeing the videos was a surreal experience since Kaminari had never seen someone talk about vore negatively in such an open way. Kaminari guessed that none of the teachers had found out about the channel since if they did it would probably end with Ethan being sent to prison for life.
Finally reaching the dorm he headed inside, having just passed through the doorway when his phone got a text message. Pulling it out and looking at it, he almost screamed out loud when he saw what it said. Jiro had agreed to go to a cafe with him the following Sunday, even picking the place out for him.
“Ah yeah!” Kaminari jumped into the air with one fist raised in triumph, so excited he actually yelled. “SHUT THE HELL UP!” Bakugo screamed from the couch and Kaminari clamped his hand over his mouth quickly. Deciding that leaving Bakugo alone was probably for the best, he had been rather on edge since Kirishima’s death, Kaminari quickly headed up to his room in order to plan the date.
Once reaching his floor he sprinted out of the elevator and dashed to his room, slamming the door behind him and he practically flew to his desk. He feverishly started doing extensive research on the cafe from what they had on the menu to what places where nearby in case Jiro wanted to keep hanging out even after the date. After spending two hours memorizing the entire district he jumped out of his chair and started tearing through his closet to find the perfect outfit for the date.
He spent about ten minutes disregarding clothes before realizing that he was too nervous to make smart decisions and pulled out his phone to call his friends for help. His finger hovered over Kirishima’s contact for a second before he remembered, feeling sad for a second before calling Bakugo instead. “Hey man can you help he find a good outfit for my date with Jiro?” Kaminari said before Bakugo could even talk. “Just go for your usual style, anything fancy and Jiro is either going to make fun of you or just leave your sorry ass” Bakugo answered before hanging up the phone.
“Thank you Bakugo, that was so much help” Kaminari deadpanned after being hung up on, briefly considering calling Sero for help before remembering his friends terrible fashion sense and deciding to simply choose on his own. He started going through his clothes methodically, keping Bakugo’s advice in mind as he judged various articles of clothing to find the perfect outfit. After an hour he finally put an outfit together, light grey jeans and a purple T-shirt with musical notes on the front.
Deciding that he had finally finished he began to put away the mountain of clothes that had accumulated during his search. Just as he started his phone went off and when he went to see who was calling he saw the picture of Jiro he had chosen for her contact. Falling off the bed in surprise, he quickly raced over and took a deep breath before answering it.
“What’s cooking good looking?” he asked with a grin, hoping to hear Jiro’s trademark sigh after his cheesy line. “Kaminari it’s me Yaoyorozu” the girl on the other end said, throwing the boy through a loop. “Yaomomo? What the heck are you calling on Jiro’s phone for?” he asked, unsure why the rich girl didn’t use her own stupidly expensive phone. “I wanted you to know that Jiro won’t be able to make it to your date next sunday” she answered, Kaminari’s blood turning to ice at her words.
“Why not?” he asked quietly while doing his best not to jump to conclusions. “All the girls were playing monopoly together and we all agreed that the first person to get knocked out would have to do whatever the winner wanted for the next twenty four hours. Jiro was the first one to lose and I ended up winning” Yaoyorozu explained. “So what did you have her do?” Kaminari asked fearfully, dreading to hear her answer. “I hadn’t eaten since lunch so I decided to eat Jiro. She wasn’t too thrilled admittedly but she did agree to do whatever I said so ultimately she allowed herself to be eaten. She told me to tell you that she couldn't make it and that she was really sorry” Yaoyorozu finished her story.
Kaminari heard a burp from the other end of the line, quickly followed by Yaoyorozu saying “Sorry about that, I just burped up Jiro’s underwear”. She waited for several seconds for Kaminari to respond, finally asking “Are you still there?” when he didn’t say anything. Several more seconds of silence before Kaminari quietly said “Thank you for telling me”, Yaoyorozu cheerfully saying “No problem. Jiro is all mush right now but I could feel her pleasuring herself all the way until the end so at least she died happy”.
Yaoyorozu hung up, leaving Kaminari alone with nothing his crushing misery. He had spent so much time afraid to ask Jiro out, only to have her get turned into slush right before the first date. It was a cruel joke, one that Kaminari didn’t laugh at. He sat on his bed for a few more minutes, completely frozen, before deciding to head to bed early that night.
After washing up at a glacial pace he put on some pajamas and laid in bed, staring up at the dark ceiling. He desperately wanted to fall asleep since at least he wouldn’t have to feel this crushing weight in his chest, but to no avail. He spent countless hours simply staring at the ceiling, letting his mind drift to happier times with Jiro. He remembered the movies they watched, the pizzas they ate, the study groups they were in that usually ended with her shoving a jack into his ear to make him concentrate.
It’s like mom all over again he thought while tears began streaming down his face. People always said that it was a bad idea to make strong bonds just in case they got eaten but he never listened. He always made friends and always valued them highly, making their losses hit him hard. Even compared to his previous losses, Jiro’s death was probably the second hardest gut punch he had ever received. He spent countless hours silently crying in his bed, so long that the sun rose and his alarm went off.
He turned off the alarm and sat up, feeling dead tired and completely miserable. He got out of bed and made his way towards the bathroom, only to hear a knock on his balcony. Confused he made his way over and opened the door and saw a cardboard box lying right outside. A cardboard box that had a note on top and a mysterious red liquid leaking out of it.“What the fuck?” he wondered while picking up the note and opening it to read its contents.
When you’re sleeping at night
Shocked by what the message said for several reasons he put it aside and opened the box, eyes widening with shock at what was inside. Looking up at him with a blank expression was the severed head of Yaoyorozu. “Oh shit” he said “Oh shit oh shit oh shit!” he quickly ran to the door and sprinted down the hallway.
“Is there a problem?” he heard a voice ask and he saw Iida standing outside his door. “Yaoyorozu” Kaminari said, trying to get his thoughts together after the shock he just experience “Her head. My balcony”. Iida’s face hardened and he quickly made his way into Kaminari’s room, Kaminari hearing him scream in surprise upon seeing her head.
Iida quickly made his way out of the room and was already calling Mister Aizawa when he said “Wait in the common room”. Kaminari did so, heading down the elevator and sitting on one of the couches. His head was spinning as he tried to figure out exactly what just happened.
Yaoyorozu’s death didn’t make him feel any emotion other than confusion. How someone managed to kill her and place the head on his balcony without getting spotted by the camera bots was a mystery since Kaminari knew how observant, his multiple failed attempts to sneak out at night were proof enough of that. He also couldn’t figure out why they would place her head on his balcony instead of someone like Todoroki, her boyfriend. Unless a thought occurred to him They overheard our conversation .
The elevator chimed as it reached the floor and attracted Kaminari’s attention since it was the girls elevator. He wasn’t sure what he was gonna say to whoever walked out, stuck between telling them the truth and playing it off to avoid panic. Before he could come to a decision the doors opened and a girl walked out, the girl in question almost making his heart explode from shock.
Mizu was walking to school with Ethan, the two discussing what the best kind of pizza was (Mizu said anchovy and Ethan kept calling him a heathen) when he noticed all the commotion at the 1-A dorm. “Don’t tell me somebody else got murdered” Mizu said wearily “I thought they put security measures in place to stop that”. “With enough planning anything is possible I suppose” Ethan shrugged and the two kept walking.
Mizu noticed that Ethan was in a good mood this morning which was surprising since he had been acting on edge since Tokage’s death. “You look happier than usual, what’s up?” Mizu asked which caused Ethan to break out into a grin. “I was working on a project last night. It went really well” was his vague answer.
Mizu decided not to press him for specifics since the truth was probably not something you wanted to know. When the two became friends Mizu quickly realized that if Ethan wasn’t being straight with you it was probably because you were better off not knowing. “Whatever floats your boat, I just want to see if that happiness lasts through Midnight’s exam today. She did say the person with the lowest score would get turned into breast milk” Mizu said, Ethan grin shifting into a scowl. “Thanks for reminding me” his friend said sarcastically and Mizu laughed while the two continued to walk.
You really are something Ethan, I'll give you that .
I wonder what happened with Yaoyorozu and Jiro.
Chapter 4: Nothing you can do
Jiro is alive and Kaminari want's to know how.
This is when things start to get wild.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Welcome back to the land of the living a voice said.
Jiro woke up naked on her bed and immediately wished she hadn’t. For whatever reason it felt as though every cell in her body had been shoved through a wood chipper then stitched back together. “Holy fuck” was all she could say in response to the barrage of pain her body was suffering from.
She tried to remember what had happened the previous night that could have caused this. She remembered the girls inviting her to play monopoly with them but she declined. She had just gotten a text from Kaminari asking if she wanted to finally go on their date and she accepted, leaving her very excited. After fifteen minutes of not being able to calm down she decided to take a walk around the school to cool her nerves so that she could actually get some homework done when she unexpectedly ran into someone.
“Ethan?” Jiro asked while watching the large boy dig through a disposal dumpster. “Well hello there, how may I be of assistance?” the boy asked while still searching for something. “What are you doing?” she asked to which he simply replied “Science shit, almost literally in this case. What are you doing, aren’t you supposed to be with the girls playing monopoly?”.
“How did-” “I know about that?” Ethan looked in direction and smirked “Momo has been talking about it all day, I overheard her multiple times mentioning how she wanted you to go”. Jiro could believe that, Yaomomo did have a habit of excitedly talking to herself, so she responded “I can’t make it tonight. I need to do some homework, besides I suck at monopoly”.
“But Momo said that whoever wins will have complete control over the loser for the next twenty four hours. You could get one of the girls to help you with your date with Denki” Ethan calmly explained. “How do-” “I know about that too? We talked for a bit right before he got your reply and I heard him yelling about it”.
“You really need to stop eavesdropping” Jiro advised him but Ethan just shook his head and said “But that’s how you hear all the juicy gossip”. He started walking away from the dumpster, apparently not finding what he was looking for, and he shouted over his shoulder “I think you should go play the game, the rewards could be huge!”. Jiro spent a minute thinking about it before deciding that he did have a point so she headed off to play the game.
Jiro tried to remember anything past that but try as she might she could barely recall anything that happened after that. She remembered melting inside Yaomomo and moaning Kaminari’s name while fingering herself (Yaomomo swore that she wouldn’t tell anybody about the moaning) but besides that it’s all just incoherent.
The fact that she remembered melting into mush made her current circumstances even stranger. How did I end up here, alive? she wondered while finally gathering the will to sit up and look at the clock. She saw that school would be starting soon so she decided to eat breakfast, hoping that would help clear her head. She very slowly got dressed, her body crying out with every movement, until eventually she made her way down the hall and into the elevator.
What’s Kaminari gonna think when he sees me? she suddenly realized that the blonde would probably be just as shocked by her survival as she was. I hope he doesn’t give me a hug or something, I don’t think my body can take any punishment right now the doors opened to reveal Kaminari sitting on the couch and looking distressed.
“Jiro?” he stared at her, wide eyed, while she froze in place and thought about what to say. Deciding to be direct and to the point she simply said “I lived bitch”. In the blink of an eye Kaminari flew off the couch and tackled Jiro into a crushing hug. “Jiro!” he wailed while crushing the life out of her “I was so sad. I thought you were gone!”.
“I will be gone if you don’t let me go” she gasped out and Kaminari immediately jumped off of her. Before she even had time to sit up he latched onto her hand and dragged her to one of the couches, plopping her down and taking a seat right next to her. “You have no idea how relieved I am that your still alive” Kaminari was almost vibrating with emotion as he said this which led Jiro to believe him.
“How are you here? What happened last night? Yaoyorozu lie to me? Did you see what happened to her? Why do you smell so nice?” Kaminari hit her with rapid fire questions, most of which she didn’t have an answer for. “Yaomomo didn’t lie to you, she really did eat me. And what do you mean I smell nice?”. “I mean you smell nice, did you use a different shampoo or something?” Kaminari looked at her quizzically and she quickly smelled her hair.
To her surprise it actually did smell freshly washed, even though she hadn’t showered since the previous day. Combine that with the fact that she woke up naked gave her the impression that whatever happened to her was intentional. “I haven’t showered this morning” she looked at him while he suddenly became deep in though.
Sitting this close to him let her see just how tired he really looked. There were bags under his eyes like he hadn’t slept at all the previous night and he smelled pretty awful meaning he probably hadn’t showered yet. There were also faint lines on his cheeks that looked as though he had been crying. Was he really this upset over me? her surprise over his feelings for her were completely missed by Kaminari who was still deep in thought.
The front door opened and both turned to see Mister Aizawa walking inside and looking incredibly tired. “Iida told me what happened Kaminari” their teacher walked over to the two of them and looked down at the boy. “Mister Aizawa, Jiro got eaten last night by Yaoyorozu” Kaminari immediately said, causing the teacher to quickly look at her. “I don’t remember what happened, sir” she had to look away from his intense gaze “One minute I’m melting inside Yaomomo and the next I wake up on my bed”.
“Is that so?” Mister Aizawa looked back and forth between the two of them as if trying to see which one was lying. The sound of the elevator opening drew their attention and all three looked over to see a very surprising figue leave the boys elevator. “Kirishima what the hell!?” Kaminari flew off the couch and gave the red haired boy the same crushing hug that Jiro suffered. “Impossible” Aizawa walked over to the boys and Jiro tried to follow but he legs protested to standing up so she just stayed seated on the couch.
“Kaminari my body’s on fire can you do this later” she heard Kirishima say and a second later he was dragged over to the couch too. “I don’t understand” Kirishima looked around “I was in Mina’s stomach last night, how am I here?”. “Kirishima” Jiro put a hand on his shoulder “Mina is-” the elevator to the girls side opened and Mina staggered out of it.
“Mina’s right there apparently” Jiro and Mister Aizawa at her while Kaminari simply passed out from shock. “Mina!” Kirishima tried to rush towards her but his legs gave out halfway there so he just face planted on the floor. “Kiri!” Mina swayed over to him and knelt down by his side, grabbing his face and giving his a kiss. “What happened, did you throw me up or something?” Kirishima asked and Mina shook her head and said “Of course not, you melted away in my stomach”.
“Now all we need is for Tokage and Yaoyorozu to show up for everything to be completely undone” their teacher said. The three of them looked over at him in surprise and Mina asked “What happened to those two?”. “Yeah” Jiro sat straight up “What happened yo Yaoyorozu?”. “I suggest you two take a seat with Jiro” Mister Aizawa motioned towards the couch “You need to be filled in on some things.
A few hours later
Kaminari was pacing back and forth in front of one of the support student dorms, waiting. After all the craziness from that morning he was desperate to find out what was really going on. It turns out that Tokage and a few other students were also mysteriously revived but for some reason Yaoyorozu was still dead. If his hunch was correct then he knew exactly who was responsible and he was currently waiting for him.
“Having fun there?” Kaminari jumped in surprise and spun around to see Ethan looking at him with a smirk. “We need to talk” Kaminari said seriously to which the other boy just said “Sure” and headed inside the dorm. Kaminari followed right after him and together the two boys stepped into the elevator and Ethan hit the top floor button.
Once they reached the top floor they stepped out and Ethan walked all the way down the hall and, to Kaminari’s surprise, up to the roof. Once outside on the roof Ethan turned to him and asked “However may I help you this fine day?”. “Those people who got revived, that was you right?” Kaminari asked in an unusually straightforward way. “Obviously” Ethan huffed and looked at Kaminari like he was an idiot.
“Killing Yaoyorozu, was that also you?” Ethan’s smile stretched wide and he replied “Indeed, but you haven’t fully grasped the scope of what I’ve done”. “I know you cut her head off and left it on my balcony but somehow managed to get away with no one seeing you” Keminari said stiffly and Ethan laughed. “Don’t get so annoyed, I know for a fact you weren’t at all heartbroken by her untimely demise. To answer the question you were not so subtly asking I got away using this” Ethan pulled out what looked like a fancy belt “One of the support students can teleport, although only a few feet at a time. Using the power of science I built this belt based off his quirk and now I can teleport anywhere around the school”.
“How?” Kaminari looked utterly baffled “How on earth did you make a teleporting belt using some guys quirk?”. “The full process would take too long to explain so I’ll keep it simple” Ethan pulled out a little vial and inserted it into the belt “Using these vials of the dudes DNA I can access his quirks teleportation ability and the belt basically powers it up so it can go farther”.
“Is that how you brought my friends back to life?” Kaminari asked and Ethan nodded earnestly. “I intend to use my device to bring back people all across the globe, assuming Mrs. Yaoyorozu does her part” Ethan said ominously. “What is that supposed to mean?” Kaminari asked and the other boy gave him a crazed look before asking “Why do you think I didn’t bring back Momo?”.
“I was going to ask you that” Kaminari admitted and Ethan shook his head before saying “Have a guess anyway”. “Well” Kaminari started thinking about what reason the other boy would have for leaving the girl dead “based on what you said, I’m guessing you want her to make more of your devices”. “Winner winner chicken dinner” Ethan smiled wickedly “Now that I’ve shown off what my device can do I can walk up to her and offer her daughter's life back, as long as she starts funding my project. She will of course accept and I’ll be rolling in dough, enough to fund my other projects as well as the revival device”.
“But if the revival device works like your belt then doesn’t that mean you would have to constantly be making vials of DNA to power them” Kaminari pointed out “And what do you mean other projects?”. “To answer the first question you’re right, as it is now I would have to constantly harvest my own DNA in order to make the machines work. I’m hoping that Mrs. Yaoyorozu’s funding will help me find a way to get around the DNA problem. As for the second question” Ethan looked Kaminari in the eyes “You’ve seen my videos. I have big plans for the world”.
“You know” Kaminari sighed “At first I thought you were a pretty cool guy. Now I just think you’re a crazy person”. Ethan started laughing hard before responding “Mighty bold words coming from you. I saw what happened to Mina Ashido”. “What do you mean?” Kaminari asked, a jolt of fear going through him. “Don’t you remember what I told you? The eyes know your secrets, they know everyone’s secrets”
“Eyes?” Kaminari asked, feeling more and more confused the longer the conversation went on. “Indeed, now scram unless you want to get arrested” Ethan made a motion as if too shoo Kaminari away but the blonde just stood there, utterly confused. “The teachers are probably gonna pin the murders on me considering that the only way those students could be revived is with my invention. Well I suppose they could have been revived by Eri but I seriously doubt they are going to assume that she resurrected all those kids. Anyway, the police are going to be here any minute to arrest me and it would be in your best interest to avoid being seen with me”.
When Kaminari still refused to move Ethan angrily said “Have it your way” before grabbing Kaminari by the scruff and dragging him off the roof. “What the-hey let go of me!” Kaminari squirmed and struggled until Ethan threw him in the elevator and hit the first floor button. “Next time you see me, it’ll probably be on the news” Ethan gave one last sinister smile before the elevator doors closed.
Kaminari sat on the floor of the elevator all the way down to the first floor, at which point he stood up and walked back to the 1-A dorm and up to his room. Once inside he sat down on the bed and started thinking about what Ethan said. “Eyes” Kaminari muttered while looking around the room, trying to see anything out of place. Eventually his eyes settled on his hat and shoe rack so he walked over to it and started searching it.
After ten minutes of searching he moved on to his dresser in search of clues. This went on for hours as he slowly made his way around the room until he finally found what he was looking for. Attached to his AC in a way to make it not stand out was a small, wireless camera. “This us it” Kaminari’s hand was shaking from the shock of finding the camera “This is how he knew about Mina. This is how he knew about my call with Yaoyorozu. I bet he has these in every room, always watching”. Kaminari suddenly felt very scared, looking around the room as if cameras were going to start bursting out of every nook and cranny. What is this guy up too? Kaminari fearfully wondered.
“You know I’m not doing this out of petty revenge” Ethan said to the brutally mauled body of Deddo Yobunna, on of the girls who frequently went after him. “I need the police to have irrefutable proof that I’m the killer. Them walking in on me butchering your body will be the final nail in my coffin”. Ethan looked up at the words he wrote on the wall in Deddo’s blood.
Cause there’s nothing you can do
“Having the lines from the song will make them sure that I’m the guy behind all the slaughtering. I assume they already searched my room and found the plans to kill you so now it’s just a matter of time”. Ethan looked at her torn up face and said “Don’t worry about them trying to kill me off for good, they need my DNA to make the machines work. That would mean jail is the most obvious solution, but considering how much people love vore I think they’ll do something else. Something that will play to my benefit, assuming my will is strong enough”.
Ethan heard footsteps rapidly approaching the room and he said “Finally, I was getting so bored I started talking to a dead body. Time for my amazing acting skills to shine” He turned his back to the door and started stabbing Deddo’s body over and over until the door broke open with a loud CRASH . Ethan turned, surprise on his face, as several heroes and police officers rushed into the room and slammed him into the floor. “Ethan” Midnight strode into the room and stood over Ethan, looking down at the boy with disdain “You are under arrest”.“Damnit!” Ethan yelled angrily. Perfect he thought internally.
The next morning
Jiro woke up with a yawn and stretched, feeling much better than she did the previous morning. She looked at her phone and saw dozens of notifications talking about Ethan getting arrested. Quickly clicking on one she started watching a news segment discussing his arrest.
“Last night at U.A. High School a student was arrested for the murder of four individuals over the past few months. Attotekina Chikara, who goes by the name Ethan, was found murdering a fellow student last night by teachers and police. He has also been connected to the murders of previous students based on evidence found at the crime scenes. Chikara is also the founder of an online conservative hate group calling themselves “The Children of Abaddon”. This group considers Vore to be an evil action and is intent on changing society so that it suits their own interests. There have been various reports of murders perpetrated by members of this group in their attempt to change society. Hopefully with the fall of their founder the group will dissipate”,
Jiro paused the video at that point and took a deep breath, feeling a sense of relief wash over her. At least this means the murders will finally stop she thought before getting out of bed and hopping into the shower. After washing up she threw on a t-shirt and some shorts before heading down to the first floor. Upon reaching it she saw Kaminari sitting at a table with a cup of coffee in his hand and looking dead tired. He looked even more disheveled than yesterday and his eyes were completely bloodshot, she even saw some chin hairs where he forgot to shave.
“You look like ass” she pointed out while taking a seat in front of him, causing his eyes to shift towards her. “I feel like it to” he suddenly downed the entire cup of coffee in one go “Sleepless nights are never fun”. “What kept you up?” she asked, curious why he seemed so high strung all of a sudden. “Too many conspiracy videos” was all he said as he tried to drink his coffee again, apparently having forgotten that he already did.
After a second of awkward silence she asked “You wanna watch some T.V. with me” and she pointed her thumb towards the couches. “Sure” Kaminari got up slowly and lumbered over to the couches before flopping down onto one of them. Jiro walked over and sat next to him, turning on the T.V. and flipping channels until she ended up on a crime drama from the 1950’s. After about five minutes of watching Kaminari laid his head on Jiro’s lap. “Your legs are soft” he said quietly before drifting off to sleep, meaning he didn’t see Jiro’s face flush scarlet at his compliment.
“Oh Kaminari” she said while running her hand through his hair “You are something else”.
You have no idea Jiro.
