    Summary

    What does it mean to have a role in your family? With the return of the miracle and her picture on the front door, Mirabel’s seems clear. She’ll take over Alma’s role someday, leading la familia Madrigal and the Encanto. She finally has a seat at the table. It’s everything she ever wanted…right?

    The return of the miracle means the return of Bruno’s gift and the involuntary visions. The pain and fear they cause slowly builds, but he refuses to involve the family in his problems. He’s dealt with it alone for years; why should now be any different? Bruno still hasn’t addressed the hurt of his past with Alma. And now Mirabel’s jumping headfirst into her new role, taking on a burden he’s all too familiar with.

    The solution to both their problems lies with each other, if only they know how to reach out and find it.

    [Written as a stand alone]

    Summary

    The Madrigals have always lived under Abuela Alma's high expectations of them, Mirabel most of all. Immigrating to a new country means sacrifices and heavier duties to live up to that responsibility, after all. But a disastrous dinner sends Mirabel running into a thunderstorm, and straight into the uncle she thought had disappeared a decade ago.

    AKA the Encanto Modern AU that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Bruno's always been into music and when he needed, he wrote down poems and song. When Mirabel was born, he wrote a song for her to manage his explosion of emotions; that song, that was supposed to help Bruno to cope with his emotions, but also to be the gift for her last-arrived sobrina, ended up accompanying him for the rest of his life.

    Summary

    The tub cracked, the sound echoing in the bathroom. Mirabel flinched, recoiling in horror. They’d barely moved back in - why was Casita cracking again? She reached out a hand to trace it, and it widened, spreading into the base of the tub. She jumped up and stared at her fingers, pulse racing.
    She looked to the cabinet. “Was it - me? All along?” she mouthed.
    Casita seemed feverish and shook the cabinet with a resounding no.
    Tears formed in Mirabel's eyes. “Casita -“ she whispered. Was this supposed to be a gift?

    Summary

    Spoiler: there's a happy ending.

    This AU is set in the dark underbelly of 1890s El Paso. Alma is a ruthless Madam who runs one of the seedier brothels in the Tenderloin District. Bruno has loyally tended the bar for his mother since he was 13–sometimes reading fortunes and sometimes sold by Alma to old men. He once left to pursue his dream of becoming a famous fortune teller and illusionist, but after Mirabel’s parents die when she is 5, he realizes can’t leave her there alone. He returns hoping he can protect her. Mirabel is about to turn 18 and will have to start working with her sisters and cousins in the brothel. When Bruno discovers Alma has auctioned Mirabel’s virginity to the highest bidder, he agrees to take it so she doesn’t have to lose it to a cruel putero.

    Worse challenges arise when Madam Alma gets involved with a corrupt sheriff and the dangerous Bosque gangs that plague the city. Only with their love for each other can they hope to keep their souls alive long enough to escape.

    In this fic, Bruno is aged down to 40, Mirabel aged up to 17/18.

    Summary

    “Mirabel, think of this as a gift -” The words shivered up her skin, twisted and slick. “A gift for the house, to Encanto. It doesn’t have to mean anything.”

    The road to recovery isn't a straight line.

    Summary

    This story somehow got hella more involved than I set out expecting it to, but here we are, 22 chapters and counting. Smut, angst, plot twists, original characters. Bruno aged down, Mirabel aged up.

    Bruno has been part of the family for three years, and Mirabel is now a beautiful young woman. Bruno continues to feel the burden of his gift, and struggles with the pieces of a future he doesn't understand. As feelings between them grow and Bruno pulls further away, Mirabel has no idea Bruno is hiding a vision he had before she was even born. A new suitor ignites Bruno's jealousy, and also brings news of an outside threat to the Encanto where another civil war has started. All of their futures are uncertain, and Bruno realizes he will have to make an incredible sacrifice to save everything he loves, not just Mirabel.

    Summary

    “I envy you. You're so calm and collected! Meanwhile, all I can think of is… just how much I wanna kiss you.”

    Her statement came out harsher than intended. But Bruno only smiled.

    “Nope, I’m not. Believe me, amor.”

    Apparently, she did. Because next moment Mirabel gave him a mischievous glance.

    “Tell me about it.”

    Summary

    "Hey, Tio!” said Mirabel loudly. “Tio Bruno! I know you can hear me…"
    With his cover blown, he had no choice but to say,
    “Oh, M–Mirabel! Hi.”
    Hands on her hips, she was about to ask what he was doing there. However, the answer seemed rather obvious, so instead the girl chose to pose a more important question.
    "Why have you been avoiding me all day?"
    “Because you don’t wanna see me.”
    A straight answer was unexpected. Especially an inaccurate one.

    OR:

    Bruno makes a mistake and worries that Mirabel won't love him afterwards.

    Summary

    “Remember how you told me about your fantasy? Y’know, the one with my visions?”
    Mirabel’s head tilted mischievously to the side. “Which time?”
    “You do! Good.” She rolled her eyes, yet his smirk didn’t disappear. “I told you this can’t be, because I’d be too distracted to pull that off. Well, I did some – some… I practiced, okay? And now I can do it! I think – I hope…? Anyway, I’m for giving it a try.”

    OR:

    In her fantasies, when Mirabel is alone with Bruno, his eyes glow a bright shade of green. For her, he tries to make this a reality.

    Summary

    Is it possible to regain what has been lost? Is what was lost worth chasing in the first place? The path to healing is not linear, and the steps are not always clear. As we reach to repair what was broken, we break others in return, and the pieces get jumbled in the shifting light of the present and the past, in the shadow of the future. What we are left with is not quite what was before, or even what could have been, but can it have worth all on its own?

    Mirabel discovers that Tío Bruno is having "surprise" visions again, and in her opinion, he is not handling it well. When Mamá tells her that Bruno is different now than he was before the walls, she can't quite let the idea go. She decides to try her hardest to fix what has been broken--for Bruno, and maybe a little for herself, too.

    Takes place 7 months after the movie. Inspired by the credit art of Mirabel and Bruno sitting together, surrounded by sand and rats. POV of Mirabel and Bruno alternating, and other characters sprinkled in, too.
