    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

    At the beginning, there were only gods and alebrijes. Death existed, and so existed life. And with it, the Lands of the Living and the Dead came to be, so the souls that parted could find a place to rest.

    But there is no rest for Sartana or Ernesto. And two months before Héctor can cross the Marigold Bridge, family secrets a long time buried come back to claim a piece of the present. Can Miguel reveal the mystery of two guitars and save Mamá Coco in time?

    It's the Un Poco Loco scene, except instead of singing Miguel pees himself and cries.

    Summary

    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

    Ernesto De la Cruz forgets about Héctor.

    He stops thinking of Héctor, about a bitter familia in Santa Cecilia, as his thoughts become solely occupied by the adoring crowds, by movie deals and novias and commercials.

    Ernesto is famous, now. What need does he have for his old life, a world he no longer lives in?

    -

    When people hear Ernesto's name, they don't think murderer. There is only one person who knows what he is, and that person has almost forgotten that the crime existed.

    Up until his final moments, Héctor thought of Ernesto as his friend. Héctor, that fool, never would have suspected foul play.

    (There was never any blood on Ernesto's hands- Héctor died with a few gasping breaths and a soft thump as his body hit the street. There was no wound, no blood-stained weapon, no descent into madness.

    Ernesto's hands are clean.

    After all, if no witness remembers the murder, who's to say there was one?)

    Summary

    Hector Rivera is a high school music teacher who is not ready to be a parent, but he has little choice when his primo Enrique is killed in a car accident with his wife, meaning Hector now has temporary custody of his godson, eight-year-old Miguel.

    His bachelor life is in for quite a bit of a change to accommodate his new charge, whether it means coping with the annoyance of his youtuber diva roommate Ernesto, allying his boss/estranged girlfriend Imelda's concern over him raising a child, or honestly just getting all his papers graded in time when he's got a little boy to comfort.

    At first Hector's terrified that he won't know the first thing about having a kid around, but once Miguel arrives he starts to worry about something else entirely: how on Earth is he going to cope when Miguel has to leave?

    Summary

    When Héctor has his first performance, Victoria of course brings Lefstebany with her. Lefstebany spends half her time at the Riveras anyway- what's so loco about coming to the first performance of the man who is basically her abuelo-in-law?

    When Héctor begins to play his guitar, Victoria sees the way his bony fingers shake. She sees how uncertain he is, how a century of being rejected for the thing he once loved has dampened his excitement for his art.

    Despite her usual disdain for such frivolous activities, she is all too happy to let Rosita pull her and Lefstebany into a dance. She understands how Héctor, this century-old skeleton trapped in the body of a twenty-one-year-old, feels. She understands being rejected for what and who she loves.

    -

    Victoria will not let Ernesto De la Cruz hurt anyone in her family again.

    Lefstebany, who has seen the hurt that the Riveras have suffered, will protect her adopted familia with everything she has.

    Ernesto De la Cruz is never seen in the Marketplace or near the Rivera casa again.

    Victoria is proud to give her novia credit for this.

    (Aka: Victoria and Lefstebany are the most badass lesbian aunts/granddaughters/skeletons EVER)

    Summary

    He had blindly raced out into America's most dangerous holiday with nothing but the clothes on his back. He had no means of defending himself, nothing to use as a weapon. Miguel wasn't a fighter; he was mere bait for the ravenous beasts that patrolled the night.

    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.
