    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

    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-)

    For Imelda, trying to ignore Héctor is like throwing water into the sea: pointless. It doesn't help that her family likes him, and she's left alone to fend off his odd style of wooing.

    Summary

    The break on Hector's arm isn't from a fall or from a failed attempt to get over the bridge, it's from a last-ditch attempt to make peace with Imelda before fading away.

    Years have passed since he and Imelda have gotten back together and it's been paradise, but Hector still hasn't managed to tell Imelda she was responsible for the biggest fracture on his frame.

    “No, it’s a real great idea and all that, babe,” Lup says, cutting herself a forkful of what looks vaguely like eggs benedict. “But it’s not gonna work. I don’t have a soul.”
    “What?” Barry asks, looking sharply up. His eyes meet hers. She smiles.
    “Elves don’t have souls, honeybunch. C’mon, everybody knows that.”

    Summary

    For years, he tries and fails to reach the Land of the Living, growing weaker the entire time. His bones grow more and more fragile, leaving him with aches that don’t go away with time. It takes him longer to make it places, to move from Shantytown to the Marketplace. He can only dance with effort, and the only times when he isn’t in pain is when adrenaline- or the remains of it, at least- carries him through an activity.

    Everyone save Coco is dead now, and his daughter’s memories are the only thing keeping him from the Final Death.

    He worries that they may not be enough.

    -

    Later, in between visits from Frida and conversations with his family, the weight of the years, of Ernesto’s admissions, starts to sink in.
    Héctor could have returned to his familia, spent the years with Imelda and Coco. He could have grown old, died in Imelda’s arms, lived to meet Julio and Rosita and Victoria and Elena and every one of his descendants. He could have been Remembered, never lived in Shantytown, never broken bone after bone and withered away trying to return to Coco.

    He’d tried to return, and Ernesto had killed him for the crime of loving his familia too much to give them up.

    Summary

    After it all came crashing down, Ernesto’s to-do list is short: stay hidden, and wait for the Final Death. Héctor’s is even shorter: enjoy being with his family again.
    But life - or rather, the living - get in the way even of the simplest plans.
