    Summary

    “¿Que estabas pensando?”

    Dolores’s voice finally filters into her brain, through the pounding of her heart and shaky staccato of her breath.

    “I’m sorry,” Mirabel says. She doesn’t really mean it and she can tell by the way Dolores huffs that her prima doesn’t believe her either. Her entire body aches but the fear on the boy’s face is etched into her mind and it’s enough to make the entire thing worth it.

    or

    In which Mirabel takes it upon herself to become the (unofficial) protector of the family. Arepas and shenanigans ensue.

    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

    AU. Set 24 Years Before the film. When Bruno Madrigal, the youngest of the Amazing Madrigals, warns his sister of rain on her wedding day, he floods her mind with worry – causing their small town to nearly drown. As the clouds part, a stranger makes her sudden appearance and turns their barrio in the valley upside down. She is brusque, brutally honest, strange.. and yet, oddly beguiling. And for some reason, he feels as if he recognizes her.

    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

    The events of the Encanto fim from start to end, but from Pepa and her side of the family's perspective. Stays canon compliant, but explores scenes that may have happened in the background, exploring characters that didn't get as much screentime, how they interact with one another while Mirabel is saving the miracle, and how they react to key points in the story - Antonio's gift ceremony, the cracks in the casita, the dinner scene, the casita crumbling, etc.

    Summary

    Mirabel, the one who had saved Casita, the one who had helped them get through their problems, was standing atop the roof. It wasn't that concerning until,

    She jumped, fell, and the ground was stained red, and so were their eyes when they had seen what happened.

    The days were dark, the clouds were struck with rain for such a long time, the mood in the house never brightened as well as it used to before. They wished for her to come back, but they weren’t stupid.

    Death took someone away from you forever, they all knew that deep down -

    Until they woke up in their old bodies,
    and Mirabel woke them all up.

    (Or Mirabel dies, and her family wakes up in the past at the very beginning of the movie.)

    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!

    (OR: A loose Anastasia (1997 movie) AU.)

    Summary

    [Rewrite and revamp of 'The Giver of Miracles']

    Ten years of emotional abuse and neglect boils over. Mirabel lashes out at Abuela, and it is the final straw. Casita crumbles, and despite her efforts to save it, the Miracle dies.

    Distraught, Mirabel flees beyond the mountains and stumbles to the river, where she is blessed with her own Miracle.

    But a Miracle is not without a sacrifice.

    Mirabel Madrigal dies at the river, and Miguel Hernando Chavez is born.

    With a soothing voice as his guide, Miguel leaves Colombia and finds himself across the globe in Japan. While wandering around, Miguel encounters Midoriya Izuku, weeping uncontrollably. Miguel extends his compassion and listens to the boy’s troubles. It is heart-breaking, but oh so powerful. Miguel is moved by Izuku’s resilience, and the power within him extends its blessing once more.

    A new story is being written, with Miguel and Izuku as its protagonists. Together, they face heroes, villains, corrupt organisations, and an evil that transcends over two hundred years. All the while, across the globe, a family reels from the loss of one of their own, and the uncertainty of whether they will ever see her again.

    Summary

    All she'd wanted was a photo of Camilo as a baby, but somehow she found herself staring at a photo of her Tía Pepa instead, the woman visibly exhausted but undeniably happy and cradling a yellow-clad baby in each arm. What caught Mirabel's attention was the unfamiliar blanket on the right; it was a pale yellow, almost beige, and patterned with dijon-coloured butterflies.

    And on the back of the photograph, written in her tía's unmistakable scrawl, was the memoir: "6/03: El día que mis bebé mellizos arcoiris eligieron finalmente para saludarme. Bienvenidos a la Familia Madrigal, Camilo y Mirabel Madrigal."

    We all keep secrets. Some to protect others, and some because we're scared for ourselves. Some of them will hurt us while others will guard each other. But, as the Madrigals will learn the hard way, there are no secrets that time does not reveal.

     

    OR: In which Mirabel accidentally uncovers a fifteen-year-old secret, has a mild identity crisis, and decides it's finally time to fulfill a childhood dream: to go to a place further than the universe.

    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.
