    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

    She is content.

    Her Toñito has a Gift.

    He has become a part of the amazing, magical Madrigal family.

    She is content, because now, she has no regrets.

    She can quietly leave, disappear into the night, because he doesn’t need her anymore. Nobody will care that Mirabel Ordinaria is no longer around. They will be happy, even. No more nuisance who can’t do anything right and only gets in the way.

    Since she cannot be happy in the Encanto, perhaps she will find happiness beyond the mountains. The world is so much bigger, after all.

    Maybe she will find her paradise then.

    Summary

    Abuela's eyes closed as she sucked in a heavy breath, her head bowing a fraction, "Agustín was never meant to die, Hija. He was only to leave the family"

    Julieta stared at her mother, agape and horrified as the truth was laid bare.
    Mirabel was first to make the connections, to how that could have sounded. "But you never thought to wonder how he understood that statement. He thought you meant Encanto!"

    "And Dolores heard everything! She must have tried to get him back!" Pepa seethed, her cloud thundering in rage but her eyes welled in grief, "You got her killed too, Mama!"

    Summary

    What if Mirabel did not reconcile with Alma and her family after the Casita fell apart? What if she ran away only to end up in the Land of the Dead due to having fallen off a cliff? What if she drifted away to the shores of Mexico where a certain living boy would end up meeting her? Through a spiritual journey, Mirabel goes to find her grandfather Pedro and learn more about her family's dark past with some help from the deceased Rivera Family members along with some other residents living there. She also has to find a way back to the land of the living though whether she can gain the strength to keep living is another question. At the same time, the Madrigals (especially Alma) must find a way to earn Mirabel's forgiveness for hurting her all these years and driving her away right after the Casita's destruction. Will the once magical family be able to reunite with Mirabel or will she be lost to them forever?

    Summary

    Mirabel had been through so much already, but when Abuela made all these false accusations against her, that was the final straw. She escapes from the confines of the Encanto, with the intention of never returning. With her parting words, the magic was finally gone and Casita fell, leaving what's left of her family in ruin. However, despite it all, Mirabel couldn't live with herself if everything came crashing down because of her. And so, through a selfless act of love and sacrifice, she finds a way to save the magic.

    However, the cost of such an act may be a way for her to finally achieve happiness. Her memory, a life that came before and her status as a Madrigal, has been erased and a new chapter is being rewritten with Mariposa as its lead. Mariposa finds a life outside of the Encanto, surrounded by people who love and care for her, something she never wants to let go of.

    As for the Madrigal family, their gifts and home had been saved, but they never forgot about Mirabel, especially the day she went missing. Eager to heal old wounds, and to seek forgiveness, they do everything they can to find her. But is it too late for the Mirabel they knew? Will Mariposa ever reclaim her former identity?

A year later, Mirabel hears of a plot to plunder her hometown and rushes back home. Tragedy strikes and the Madrigals soon come to understand what Alma and the other elders were running away from.

    On Mirabel’s darkest day, she finally receives a miracle and ends up in her 15 year old body at the day of Antonio’s gift ceremony. Armed with knowledge of the future and a new understanding of her family, Mirabel fights off a dark future. But the future is a tricky thing as Bruno can attest to. Will Mirabel save her familia and comunidad or are they destined to come crashing down?

    Summary

    From the very beginning, Antonio sees how Gifts are not the blessings everyone says they are.

    Mainly, the way the family treats his Mamí for not having one.

    He decides that he does not want a Gift himself. It is not worth it. He can’t bear to leave his Mamí all alone in the nursery. He can’t bear to see her growing sadder and darker each day.

    He just wants her to be happy.

    As it turns out, someone else has the same idea.

    Greener pastures await, as is their chance for happiness.

    Casita crushed Julieta when she tried saving Mirabel. Mirabel survives, but her mother didn't. Since then, Mirabel has been lost in a void of grief and constantly blames herself for her mother's death. Not only that, Mirabel's personality and behaviors change.

    In other words, you know how Julieta was supposed to die in the movie? What if she actually did?

    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

    The plan was for Julieta to take a much-deserved vacation outside of the Encanto.
    Running out of magical food on day one was not the plan.
    Half of the Madrigals being struck down with a bad cold by day two was definitely not the plan

    Abuela glanced down at her list, trying to quell her growing anxiety. Of course, someone in the family would come down with something while Julieta was away. She should have made, no- she should have politely asked Bruno to have a vision before her daughter left. But that wouldn't have made a difference anyway- her family would have never said anything to ruin Julieta's trip. They would just have to make some adjustments. Things would be fine. They were fine. As long as nobody else caught whatever Pepa had, everything would go smoothly. "We should all get going. La Familia Madrigal!"
    "La Familia Madrigal," echoed the family.
    and heaven help us all. Abuela silently prayed.

    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.
