    Summary

    Miguel Rivera never knew anything about his great-great grandmother, other than that she had left behind her husband and daughter to play music with a friend of hers. But one day, he discovers that the 'friend' is actually her brother, who happens to be none other than the famous musician, Ernesto de la Cruz. And so, after ending up in the Land of the Dead, he decides to search for his great-great grandmother's brother in hopes of getting his idol's blessing.

    (OR: in which Imelda was the musician who died at 24, and Hector the shoemaker who died at 75.)

    Summary

    Modern Day AU. Tired of Ernesto’s snide remarks, Imelda decides to put him in his place - and her husband is more than happy to help. It was supposed to be a one-night deal. Things quickly get out of hand.

    OT3, mostly porn and humor. Plenty of instances of Ernesto being Dramatic, Imelda getting Sick Of His Shit, and Héctor trying to be the peacekeeper. Don’t expect anything serious.

    [The art in each chapter is by Elletoria. Also check out their work on Twitter!]

    Summary

    Ernesto grabbed Héctor's shoulders and forced him to meet his eyes. "Your wife doesn't define who you are. You can be someone beyond your marriage, beyond Santa Cecilia. Hector, you can be who you are now, standing in front of me. You said that what we were doing felt good." Héctor learns that it is impossible to escape the consequences, even in death. Ernesto X Héctor in the beginning. Explores Héctor's afterlife before Miguel's visit, but with a couple fun divergences.

    Summary

    Héctor Rivera, a music teacher who lives with his best friend, abruptly finds himself in the role of a parental figure when his primo Enrique and Luisa are killed in a car accident. And he will be the first to state that it is a bad idea. He may be the boy's godfather and he adores Miguel, but Héctor is fully convinced that giving him that much responsibility will only end in disaster. After all, taking care of himself is already hard enough. Adding a grieving child that he doesn't know how to help won't make it any easier.

    And if that wasn't enough, there are two people moving into the same apartment building. Imelda and her daughter, Coco, are starting a new life after the woman's husband abandoned them. Imelda is ready to get to work at rebuilding. She has a daughter to take care of, after all. She doesn't have time to cry over that man. They didn't need him. And she certainly didn't have time to notice the young man who lived in the same building, even if Coco seemed to like him.

    An AU of "The Way You Keep Me Guessing"

    Summary

    Mushroom War au/Adventure Time au (can’t decide on an au name)

    Inspired by Simon & Marcy’s relationship in Adventure Time

    Héctor can’t remember how he found the amulet or why it’s chosen him, but it saved him and his daughter when the end of the world came. As he and Coco wander through the wreckage, he can feel the amulet’s power growing and trying to creep into his mind. He knows it’s slowly taking over despite his attempts to fight, but he must hang on for Coco.

    Summary

    The death of Ernesto’s father cuts short Ernesto and Hector's doomed music tour before anyone gets poisoned, making them both return to Santa Cecilia so that Ernesto can care for his mother and rethink his life’s trajectory. Ernesto meets a sweet but sassy girl with a green hair ribbon who seems to be able to see right through his ego, and now he can't get her out of his head. Hector and Imelda aren't convinced at his show of indifference and deftly assume the role of the conniving married friends. But even if Ernesto were in love with her (which he's totally not) he's not sure someone as sweet as her could ever really love someone who feels as damaged inside as he does.

    This story has the same headcanon history I’ve built for Ernesto in For Whom The Bell Tolls, but can be read independently.

    Summary

    Short little oneshots and thoughts for the Coco series. Most aren't particularly connected or thought out these are just for fun. Includes both au things and canon compliant things. Heavy on the headcanons and feelings. If a chapter ends up continuing on from a previous one it will be mentioned as doing so...

    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 save Mamá Coco in time?

    Summary

    Santa Cecelia: home to the Dust Devils, a two-man biker gang... that can only afford one bike.

    Oscar and Felipe Rivera aren't the most threatening bikers in Mexico. Their only true crimes are speeding and loitering, always managing to find loopholes and evade arrest. They're on a first-name basis with the cops, the ambulance crews, and every nurse in the local hospital. Of course, it's hard to be threatening when you still live with your shoe making older sister, her songwriter husband, and their adorable daughter.

    Add a "celebrity" turned deadbeat, a smart mouthed bartender, and a tired policeman, and you've got the makings of a really ODD neighborhood!

    Summary

    They were just coming off the high of their sixth watch-through of Disney-Pixar's Coco... they were just coming off that high. They definitely did not expect to be falling asleep only to be thrust into wakefulness in a world that is really, really not their own. Not the culture, and not the environment... but most importantly...

    “Uh... what exactly is it that I've supposedly stolen? Can someone please fill me in on that... because I don't know how to get home without knowing what got me here!"

    Because obviously, they had to have stolen something... otherwise they wouldn't be here, right?

    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

    Fake Priest AU. In the midst of the Mexican Revolution, Santa Cecilia is still a relatively safe place; all a young orphan named Miguel has to worry about is how to get novices Héctor and Imelda to switch their religious vows for wedding vows before it's too late. He's not having much success until he finds an unlikely ally in their new parish priest, who just arrived from out of town.

    Fine, so Padre Ernesto is a really odd priest. He's probably not even a real priest, and the army-issued pistol he carries is more than slightly worrying. But he agrees that Héctor and Imelda would be wasted on religious life, and Miguel will take all the help he can get.
    It's either the best idea he's ever had, or the worst.
