    Summary

    Abuela's eyes closed as she sucked in a heavy breath, her head bowing a fraction, "Agustín was never meant to die, Hija. He was only to leave the family"

    Julieta stared at her mother, agape and horrified as the truth was laid bare.
    Mirabel was first to make the connections, to how that could have sounded. "But you never thought to wonder how he understood that statement. He thought you meant Encanto!"

    "And Dolores heard everything! She must have tried to get him back!" Pepa seethed, her cloud thundering in rage but her eyes were welled in grief, "You got her killed too, Mama!"
    __

    Agustin leaves AU |

    Blackmailed to leave by Abuela, Agustin complies but meets trouble on his way out as leaving Encanto turned out much harder than anticipated, especially when followed by his 6-year-old Sobrina, Dolores before they're pushed too far to go back and leave the family fumbling in the aftermath of their sudden disappearance. Assumptions are made, memories are lost and new lives are built.

    Of course, the past doesn't stay buried forever...

    Summary

    Originally posted on FanFiction.net.
     

    Mirabel was only ten years old when her life changed forever.
    Left alone with no defence Mirabel would grow cold and bitter.
    She would watch as her family was enslaved to the town, exploited for any use their gifts could provide.
    It was time to end it all, if it was her density to destroy the miracle than she'll be more than happy to fulfil it.

    Destroy the miracle, break the curse and free her family.
    Not to mention she is interested in some personal revenge herself.
    Alma Madrigal took everything away from her.
    Now she shall do the same.
    Her weapon of choice? Turning Alma's own family against her.

    Summary

    The night Mirabel doesn't get her gift is the same night Bruno has his vision of the future. After a conversation with his mother, he realizes that if he lets things be, then Mirabel will grow up just like him- outcast and alone. So he does what any “sane”, protective uncle would do and runs away with her in the middle of the night.

    Summary

    Mirabel knows the stories about her family’s past — her abuelo cut down by a power-hungry witch, her young tío tragically lost in the river during their escape. Over the years, she’s watched the Madrigals fracture at the edges because of Abuela’s fear of magic and the evil it attracts. All she wants is to fix things, and maybe visiting that long-abandoned village hidden among the mountains will show her how. She doesn’t expect to find someone living in the ruins — a skittish stranger with missing memories.

    Maybe he doesn’t seem to have the exact same magical gift, and maybe she doesn’t quite believe it herself, but what if…Mirabel just assumes he’s her long-lost Tío Bruno anyway? She’ll teach him all about being a Madrigal, bring him home in time for Abuela’s birthday, finally put some of her family’s deep-rooted pain to rest, AND help a sweet, lonely man feel like he belongs somewhere too. What could possibly go wrong?

    OR: Where Mirabel, sick of waiting on a miracle, decides to create one. And then she stumbles headfirst into a real one. Oh, and she also accidentally awakens a slumbering evil that still wants to kill her family and steal their magic. Whoops!

    Summary

    The plan was for Julieta to take a much-deserved vacation outside of the Encanto.
    Running out of magical food on day one was not the plan.
    Half of the Madrigals being struck down with a bad cold by day two was definitely not the plan

    Abuela glanced down at her list, trying to quell her growing anxiety. Of course, someone in the family would come down with something while Julieta was away. She should have made, no- she should have politely asked Bruno to have a vision before her daughter left. But that wouldn't have made a difference anyway- her family would have never said anything to ruin Julieta's trip. They would just have to make some adjustments. Things would be fine. They were fine. As long as nobody else caught whatever Pepa had, everything would go smoothly. "We should all get going. La Familia Madrigal!"
    "La Familia Madrigal," echoed the family.
    and heaven help us all. Abuela silently prayed.

    Summary

    “Run. Run and don’t look back. God go with you, mijo,”

    His birth father had been bent over him, trying to shield him, trying to keep him alive. Juan had walked to his certain death to distract them from Bruno and his damn curse, a curse Juan hadn’t even known about until tonight.

    So Bruno followed that last instruction, that last plea: he ran and he didn’t look back.

    ***

    Found in the river as a baby, Bruno has only one clue about his family: the blanket he was found wrapped in, embroidered with his name and a caterpillar. Finding them has never really been a dream of his; after all, they're surely dead, just like his father.

    But when his village is destroyed, he unknowingly follows his parents' footsteps and finds himself in a hidden village, saved by a magical family.

    Surely this is too good to be true. As Bruno waits for the other shoe to drop, for some catch to reveal itself, mysteries are unearthed and secrets are revealed. It seems the Madrigals are missing someone too.

    Maybe, just maybe, he has a family after all.

    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

    He can’t stay, he can’t go. He can’t keep it to himself, and he can’t tell anyone else.

    ~~~
    Bruno has some time to think about his options regarding The Vision and how to deal with the situation. Because in the end it all depends on him and his decision.
    Sometimes the only thing we can do is take a deep breath, calm down and be an adult about it.

    Summary

    A month after Casita's rebuilding and getting their gifts back, Isabela wishes to burn her old dress and move on from the past. She goes to the only family member she feels she can trust with this mission of hers. She's shocked to find that he also wants to burn something of his as well.

    Or in which- Bruno and Isabela bond over the roles they never wished to have but had to play. One as the Golden Child and the other as the Black Sheep.

    And Isabela finally gets the courage to talk to Abuela and finally break free from the cage that's kept her hostage for a long time and becomes the free spirit she always longed to be.

    Summary

    Mirabel Madrigal was the outcast, the black sheep, because she doesn’t have a Gift.

    For years, she stood on the sidelines, watching her family grow and become more illustrious, casting her further and further into the shadows.

    She doesn’t know how much longer she can take it. She does know, though, that she is too late for a miracle.

    Mirabel couldn’t be more wrong.

    She does have magic within her, just not the kind she expected. And it requires her leaving the Encanto and exploring a new dimension to realise her true potential. It also helps that she has lost her memories in the process, allowing her to begin a new life in a clean slate.

    As the family she left behind crumbles, Mirabel will begin anew as the Fairy of Butterflies, free to chart her own path to greatness, and find the one who will share her heart for all eternity.

    Summary

    Inspired by the plot of the Korean thriller film "Everyone Is There".

     

    On the night of Antonio's ceremony, Mirabel, after being pushed aside and denied the chance to so much as help decorate, runs into the woods of the Encanto. She cries there, helpless, alone, worthless, pathetic…

    Until she meets a strange girl, who looks so much like her, but not at all at the same time. She's cold and bitter, where Mirabel is warm and sweet. She's also standoffish, abrasive, sharp-tongued, and physically violent. Despite all this, Mirabel is fascinated with the stranger, and demands to know her identity.

    She never expected to meet her twin sister,

    María Madrigal.

    Summary

    Isabela can't pretend to be perfect. Bruno's Gift isn't quite so humbling. Luisa isn't able to do all the heavy lifting. The Madrigal Family... is still pretty dysfunctional.

    In which Abuela is still the matriarch, Mirabel is still ordinary in an extraordinary family, but the details are a bit different. Golden children aren't golden children and black sheep aren't black sheep.

    So, he was pregnant and didn't have a husband.
    He had his family to help him.
    And the yellow-gold visions he was having were surely nothing to worry about. Pregnancy was just weird.

    Summary

    For years, Mirabel Madrigal hung on to dwindling optimism that she is still a part of the family, despite her own disastrous Gifting ceremony and the lasting consequences since.

    It is all for nothing.

    As everyone celebrates Antonio's successful Gifting ceremony, she is pushed to the side once more, cruelly reminded of her place as the black sheep, the unremarkable, the Gift-less outcast within her own family.

    What is the point of staying, when everyone sees her as a nuisance who just gets in the way?

    Greener pastures await, through help from an unexpected source.

    Summary

    Despite being a child, Antonio is not blissfully ignorant.

    He sees his favourite prima in so much pain. For not having a Gift. For being completely ordinary. He sees how Mirabel is breaking with each passing day.

    Instead of fearing that he too will become like her, Antonio decides that he does not want a Gift. He does not want to leave Mirabel, all alone in the nursery. He does not want to stay in a place where Mirabel is always sad and in pain.

    He is sure that the world outside of the Encanto will be better. A place where Mirabel will get to be happy. Where he too will be happy alongside her.

    Paradise awaits, and with it, far-reaching consequences for the family they will leave behind.
