    Summary

    “You were so drunk that I had to carry you onto the train.” He says, raising an eyebrow. “You need to hold your alcohol better my friend.”

    “Ugh.” Hector says, and rubs his temples. “What happened last night?”

    “We did a lot of talking.” Ernesto replies.

    Hector frowns, and Ernesto quietly tugs down the collar of his shirt to reveal red and purple bruises.

    Summary

    Héctor was never really sure if Tía Victoria liked him or not. She didn’t yell at him, but she always had a face that said she disapproved of whatever he was doing (even when he wasn’t doing anything bad!) The general consensus was that, yes, she did disapprove of him. But it wasn’t personal, because she disapproved of just about everyone.
    ~
    A flashback chapter for The Way You Keep Me Guessing/Teacher!AU, where Héctor realizes that he's Tía Victoria's favorite.

    Summary

    Ernesto is all set to leave for his trip with Héctor to play for the world. Imelda says something before they leave that changes Ernesto's outlook entirely.

    Same continuity as "We Don't Want Your Body," though you don't need to read that first. Mature themes/language, tw for unhealthy relationships/manipulation. Imelda/Héctor/Ernesto. Not fluff.

    Summary

    As Héctor outlines his plan to Frida about how he plans to get the foto from Ernesto de la Cruz- deftly dodging Ceci’s pointed questions about how the celebrity got ahold of Héctor’s foto- Ceci bustles about, acquiring outfits for each of Héctor’s familia. She recognizes none of them save, maybe, the tall one- Victoria, she thinks the name was- and wonders where they have been for the past century. She’s known Héctor for thirty years and has never seen a single one of them.

    Anger fills her. Where were they while Héctor was being Forgotten? Where were they when this wonderful man grieved, cried, wrote such haunting music for Frida but never penned a note for himself? Where were this so-called familia? How could they abandon this man who, though flawed, is still one of the best people Ceci has ever met?

     

    (And then-

    Oh Dios, then she finds out at the Sunset Spectacular why they never checked up on him, and she feels so sick-)

    Summary

    “You are so strong,” Héctor says, and she doesn’t need him to say it- she knows she’s strong, she had to be in order for her family to survive- but it’s nice. By Dios, it makes something in her chest ache to hear Héctor acknowledge everything she had to do for their familia. “You always have been. When you chased me away-” He swallows. “You've always had to be strong, and for that I am sorry. If only I hadn't left-" His voice cracks, and her chest bones ache.

    The thing is, Imelda has heard Héctor call her strong before, but it hasn’t meant as much as it does now, after a century of having to be too strong.

    She has always been the strong one, the stubborn one, the cold one when necessary. Héctor is the heart of the family, the kindness, the compassion. He has always bent over backward to make others happy, because that is what made him happy. It is what made him feel fulfilled, useful, far more than any machismo ever could. It is what made her fall in love with him.

    Imelda and Héctor are the exact opposite of what should have worked, and they never tried to change each other.

    “Then we both are at fault,” she says, and it feels like a weight has been released from her chest.

    Summary

    “Do you care about your familia... more than your music?”

    Héctor felt his every bone light on fire. As if there would ever, ever be doubt of that again, after all he’d gone through, the mistakes he’d made that led to a hundred years of misery, a hundred years of being unable to mend his wife’s broken heart, a hundred years of separation from his daughter. “Si, Ernesto. Especially more than my music.”

    A smile crossed Ernesto’s features. “Are you willing to put that to the test?”

    Summary

    "It means that you should prepare yourself for what might happen," said Dr. García gently. "Señora, this man is barely remembered. Whoever still holds memories of him and stopped the Final Death… it may not be enough. Perhaps he will eventually recover his strength and wake up. That would be the ideal outcome. But his condition is not promising, Señora."

    Summary

    Miguel feels the man shaking and he returns the hug fiercely, burrowing his face in the fabric of Héctor’s vest and wetting it with tears. Héctor cries too, unashamed. They weep for Miguel's life, cut short. The older skeleton pulls back and looks at Miguel again, an anguished tenderness twisting his features.

    “How, mijo?”
