    Summary

    Is this another shameless self-insert? It used to be until my character came to life.
    Will this be any good? Myeh... Probably.
    What is it about? Basically, introducing my character to the Madrigals and the villagers mostly by blundering through trying to calm a VERY DISTRESSED rat man.
    Do I suck at summaries? Big time!
    Work in progress and the chapters are subject to change. I'm kinda making this up as I go and my muse is stupidly fickle like that.

    Summary

    He saw the surprised looks on the villagers’ faces to see the Madrigal Triplets walking into Casita’s rubble, arm in arm again, for the first time in ten years.

    Señora Guzman smiled like it was only to be expected and turned back to Alma. Their mother unashamedly stared at them, one hand on her heart as they walked past. She looked relieved.

    And so did Félix and Agustín when they spotted them. Their relief was so obvious that Bruno could practically feel it in the air.

    ***

    Bruno's home and that means adjusting. A lot of adjusting. Through ups and downs, the Madrigals learn to heal.
    Family bonding, shenanigans and moving forward abound.

    Or: the kids form the Bruno Madrigal Protection Squad, gossip is finally put to good use and we talk about Bruno.

    Summary

    After a particularly disastrous day, a week or so after Casita is rebuilt, Abuela finds herself back on the day of Antonio’s gift ceremony. A bizarre occurrence already, made even stranger when she plays through that day and the one after it again. And again. And again. A horrifying situation to be sure, until Abuela realises one thing: whether it’s the miracle or Casita or something else causing this time loop, it’s a chance to fix what went wrong.

    And only by making it all better, or at least as good as it can be, can Abuela break out of this time loop. She’s got a lot to fix, though: Mirabel feels left out, Luisa is on the verge of a breakdown, Isabela doesn’t want to be ‘perfect’, Dolores has more secrets than she can handle, Camilo is forgetting who he is, and Bruno - her own child - has been spending the last decade in the walls.

    OR, your author loves time loop stories and wanted one for Encanto.

    Summary

    It's been a year since they rebuilt Casita. A year since the miracle had died and been restored.
    Bruno is different now. Healthier, cleaner. Things are different, better, now. He is happy, his family is happy, the town is happy. Bruno doesn't talk to rats, doesn't throw salt or sugar over his shoulder, doesn't hold his breath and cross his fingers when passing through doorways. He is better. He is what his family needs him to be.

    Fate leads him into the path of a man who helps him to make sense of things.

    ...

    Possible TW for a theme surrounding trauma recovery. Contains some mentions of self-harm and mental health problems.

    Summary

    Mirabel loves her family, and she loves her gift. She loves the sound of her water and she loves how she and Isabela always entertain people with their powers.

    But Mirabel isn’t happy. Her family isn’t either, but she thinks they are.

    So Mirabel hides it. And that does not end well.

    Or

    Encanto, but Mirabel gets a gift. And it’s hell.

    Rated T for swearing.

    Summary

    Bruno had always been superstitious, that wasn't a surprise to the family. What they didn't know, was how much those anxieties actually increased from behind the walls. What they didn't know, was that he often felt trapped in his own head, like he was lost in the almost constant green fog.

    What they did know, however, was that they would never let him go through it alone again.

    Through a miracle of his own, Pedro survived the attack. He spends his life on the other side of that mountain range and is as unaware of his family's survival as they are of his own.

    50 years later, on his annual visit to the river to pay his respects, there is suddenly a gap in the mountains.

    Old man he may be, but he never lost his sense for adventure. And what he finds in that village, hidden behind the mountains, will change everything.

    Summary

    Her ways of making people feel better weren't always the best. She wasn't the kindest. She wasn't the meanest. Sometimes she'd make people cry. Angry. Ashamed. Sad. Awkward.

    But in the end, her strange, mean kindness helped.

    Sometimes a painful perspective is just what you need.

    Summary

    Los Madrigal was easily divided. Well. It was easily split into conveniently coded categories, the branches of the tree well-defined. Doña Alma was the unimpeachable Keeper of the Miracle. The Martinez-Madrigals were flamboyant and grating and popular and arrogant and joyous. The Córdoba-Madrigals were reliable and overwhelming and giving and showy and steadfast.

    And Bruno was Bruno, the trunk of the tree, the rot at the center, the witherer of roots.

    OR

    Bruno gets lost and found in both his family and his family's family.

    Summary

    Alma did not doubt that the miracle would only give her family what they needed. In this case, however, it had given her 5-year-old daughter total control over the weather.

    “Pepa,” Alma said, feeling exhausted. “Please stop crying. You’ll flood the river again.”

    Summary

    They sit on a nearby bench and Alma fixes her attention on taking deep breaths. Bruno rises for a moment and returns with a flask of water from the shop. Alma takes it, tries to hide how much effort it costs to stop her hand from shaking. But she’s aware that there’s not much she can hide from Bruno; he watches her considerately, and Alma knows that he’s most likely counting in his head, timing her breathing.

    He’s always been attentive, she muses, perceptive in a way that isn’t just linked to his Gift; he’s always known whenever Pepa is upset before there’s even a hint of a cloud. “Es maduro para su edad,” some villagers have told her in approving tones, which Alma silently frets about: that, circumstances being what they are, he has had his childhood cut short.

    She sets the flask down decisively. Bruno follows the movement.

    “We can go home,” he starts, but Alma cuts him off.

    “No, no, Bruno, I’m not ruining the whole day.”

    Bruno shakes his head insistently, looking so sad that Alma feels guilt rise in her chest at the sight of his expression. It’s your fault; you’ve put that frown there.

    Among them a long-lost son and a much needed change of perspective.

    A series of scenes set during and after the rebuilding of Casita. Might be out of chronological order.
