There was only one reason why Camilo had stood aside and let it all fall apart, and it was because he promised. He promised that if this future came to pass, he would stand aside and let it happen. He had this protective flare in his head that screamed to beg Mirabel to stop what she was doing, to run from Casita and finally free herself from the emotional neglect and abuse that she experienced from her familia.
Yet, he didn't.
Mirabel had done her best to distance herself from her family, Camilo knew that, but nothing could change his anxiety, relax his fears. His silence would cause her to risk her life, and he knew that, but he swore he'd keep quiet. He promised to not tell, to let her find herself. She was una oruga, and she needed to become a mariposa.
Camilo needed to let her flourish, show her true worth, and so he would stand on the side and soak in the way his prima flourished, and he would be there to catch her if she fell.
Aka, Camilo knows about Bruno and the prophecy, and his anxiety fights with him about keeping his mouth shut or telling Mirabel the truth. In the process though, he ends up spilling out every last overwhelming feeling in his head.
Camilo had never truly been seen before. He worked so hard, but he was always shifted, always someone else. When he was at home, he was just the Madrigal whose Gift was useless. Abuela made sure of that. When cracks threatened to take down Casita at Antonio's Gift ceremony, he knew it was his chance to finally be seen.
A fic where I decided I needed to rewrite the entire script of Encanto to make Camilo the main character because he's my favorite character AND I wanted to put in a bunch of the 100% accurate aspects about Camilo that everyone keeps writing about.
