    Bookmarker's Notes

    If you only ever read one 200k+ fanwork in your life, please let it be this one. It is so worth it; after all, it literally is a novel, epigraphs and everything. I would print it out and bind it if I had enough sheets of paper for this behemoth. (I have read a 310k fanwork, and while well-written, it comes nowhere close to touching upon social issues and historical conflicts with the use of characters from popular culture as this one does.) This, dare I say, magnum opus of kaikamahine's is a treatise and a romance, vulgar yet undeniably highbrow all at once.

    The frequent, masterful flashbacks and -forwards and key line repetition (oh, the poetic cinema!) were absolutely delightful and strongly reminded me of One Hundred Years of Solitude, possibly my favorite novel. (Also, that last line definitely planted a Coco/Cien años de soledad/Les Misérables crossover poetry seed in my head that I'm still trying to work out. Argh, what great authors do to you!)

    It's a shame Remember Three didn't last, but frankly I'm a sucker for angst and canon compliance. That said, this work got me, really got me into shipping Ernesto/Héctor/Imelda despite the canon...uh...friction among the three.

    Summary

    Ernesto pays a dangerous price to get revenge on the Riveras for taking everything from him-and gets in way, way over his head.
    Has references to "The Book of Life," but I don't think it's enough to really constitute a crossover. Contains a few OCs, and references to traditional mythology, because I'm a mythology nut. I'm also a gringa, so I apologize for any egregious errors vis-a-vis Hispanic culture.

    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."
