New drawing program + hyperfixation coming throughhhhh!!!
"She says she loves you very much!"
I had tooooOoo😭😭😭😭
EDIT: I CHANGED BRUNOS HEAD BECAUSE GOOD GOD, BEFORE IT LOOKED NOTHING LIKE HIM, IT WAS AWFUL I AM SO SORRY😭😭😭
EDIT EDIT: we don't talk about those other heads...okay, I'm ashamed and wish tumblr could wipe them from existence but they'll always be there in every old reblog-
no no no but Bruno leaving not because he didn't love his family, not because there was a vision that would hurt his family, but leaving because his vision would change how the family looked at his sobrina is the most heartbreaking thing
if the vision had just shown the Miracle fading, Casita cracking, but had no one else, he would have stayed, and probably helped to figure out what that meant.
and i'm sure he thought about that as the vision was being created, he thought that he'd show his mother, and they'd figure things out.
but then Mirabel appeared in the vision, and all bets were off.
Bruno saw a grown-up version of his sobrina.
his kindhearted sobrina who wore glasses his color green so that she'd match everyone in the family in some way.
his little sobrina who spent the night after her ceremony crying in her room, all alone.
his wonderful sobrina who did her absolute best to light up every room she entered.
his precious sobrina, who was only five, and who was struggling to make her family proud.
If it was just the house, Bruno would stay.
But he refused to put Mirabel through more heartbreak, more ostracization.
and the fact that finding that out shocked Mirabel is so sad, because to her, she was the ungifted Madrigal. She was clumsy, always in the way, and nobody special.
So someone putting her first, someone doing something to take care of her, to protect her, is so out of the ordinary, so unfamiliar to her, that it takes a moment for her to actually understand.
And I don't think she really did understand.
The only people who truly loved her after her ceremony were her parents and Antonio. She couldn't fathom one of her gifted family members actually thinking about her and putting her in front of everything else.
Bruno's thought process of "protect Mirabel first, save the Miracle and the Family second" is so incredibly bittersweet, because Mirabel can't imagine why anyone would do that.
(it's the same with Antonio saying "I need you" during his ceremony because no one's ever needed just Mirabel)
“7 foot frame, rats along his back, when he calls your name it all fades to black, yeah he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams”
“grew to live in fear of Bruno stuttering or stumbling, I can always hear him sort of muttering and mumbling, I associate him with the sound of falling sand (ch ch ch) it’s a heavy lift with a gift so humbling, always left abuela and the family fumbling, grappling with prophecies they couldn’t understand (do you understand?)”
Ok so I’ve seen this going around a bit about Encanto, but I haven’t really seen it on tumblr so I might be talking to a wall here but I wanted to say it anyway:
I think the Madrigal’s getting their gifts and Casita back was a good ending. I’ve heard people saying they wish they didn’t and they wanted a more bittersweet ending, and it defeated the message of the movie. But I don’t think that’s what that was at all!
The movie definitely wanted to convey that the characters were more than their gifts. Which is true, but the point of it was that it was how they were utilizing their gifts, or more specifically how Abuela was pressuring them to use their gifts. One of the movie’s primary messages was, if not the main message, was the breaking of generational trauma. Abuela was this source of “you have to use your gifts to help others” that stemmed from her not wanting to lose the home that was given to her and the community, and while on paper that isn’t a bad thing, it creates stress on the family when it’s taken too far.
In my opinion, and from what I’ve seen from the end, their gifts are exactly as they sound: gifts. The Miracle blessed the Madrigals with no strings attached. They received it through Abuela’s prayer (as stated in a behind the scenes video); it was something to help their family thrive and be happy to contrast the suffering that Alma had to go through.
And while helping the community obviously isn’t a bad thing, like everything it can be taken too far, and it did. The lesson that the family needed to learn wasn’t that they were fine without their gifts, the lesson they needed to learn was that they’re not tools simply built for helping, and they deserve what they want beyond Abuela’s requirements for them. And now they can have their healthy mix, because it was up to Abuela to realize and process what she was doing so the family could relax.
And they don’t need to be stripped away of their gifts to have that. It’s clear they like their gifts and it’s a part of them, and stripping those away would clearly have a negative impact.
A story having a happy, neat ending is not necessarily a bad thing. I think it’s really only a bad thing when it contrasts with the message and tone of the story, which I don’t think Encanto’s ending does.

˗ˏˋ # AN . HAI HELLO I LOVE THIS IDEA SM LIKE GONNA CRY BECAUSE IT’S LITERALLY THE CUTEST THING YK T^T I ACTUALLY HAD SMMM FUN DOING THIS LIKE EGFJDGRJDF MY HEART WAS JUST EVERYWHERE OMG SENDING ALL MY LOVE TO YOU (>0//u//0)>💚
꒰ෆ꒱ Bruno proposing to his s/o is something he is not ready for however he really really wants this.
꒰ෆ꒱ He is very nervous at first, he really wants this moment to be perfect, a memory that can be cherished realizing that you both were perfect for each other.
꒰ෆ꒱ Bruno is the type of person to recite his speech to you, he will ask his sisters if it was good or not. His sisters would be glad to help, Juilieta and Pepa were good help because they know what a girl would want. They would advise him to be himself and speak from the heart. (im sobbing why is this so cute like wth)
꒰ෆ꒱ His sisters chose a perfect spot for him, it showed the whole view of Encanto and the townspeople. And in night he knew that’s when all the bright stars would shine! (...bruh i hate how writing just makes me so flustered like wthhhh)
꒰ෆ꒱ He would leave his s/o a note telling him where to meet him and stuff like that and also flowers outside their window. It is something sweet yet simple! (aweeeeeeee ahhhhguwejfsd)
꒰ෆ꒱ You followed his note and went up to see him, and oh god it felt like you were in a fantasy. The scenery was so beautiful, flowers were settled on the ground making it look colorful, and the beautiful view of Encanto making the scene fit perfectly as the stars above both of you shine brighter.
꒰ෆ꒱ You would be astonished and awed because of the effort he put in this, it made your heart swelled. Your attention would be focused on Bruno who was smiling at you.
꒰ෆ꒱ “I-I have something to tell you, and I know it is hard for me to say it because I’m scared I’ll mess up....but here it goes..”
꒰ෆ꒱ And this made your heart beat more and more when he went on his knees, you were trying not to smile sooo hard. You were so excited that you could just jump up and kiss him.
꒰ෆ꒱ “I-I-I know that I’m not perfect, I know that I have my flaws..and I know that I don’t deserve you. I never found myself falling for someone, I never had a chance to think that I’ll fall for someone who is so-so loving, caring, amazing, and beyond. No one never liked me because of my gift, but...but you saw the good in me...you-you saw that no matter what my gift was you would still stay by my side and you gave me a chance. I-I, you made me realize that....I’m worth something more. I love you mi amor...will you, will you marry me?”
꒰ෆ꒱ And that’s when you started crying, tears were coming down from your cheeks and Bruno was panicking so much because he thought his speech was bad. But in reality you couldn’t help the overwhelming love you have in your heart.
꒰ෆ꒱ “YES A MILLION YES A THOUSANDS TRILLIONS YES YES YES!!” you would jump up and kiss him right on the spot, the stars glistening above you making your eyes shine brighter.
꒰ෆ꒱ Now onto the wedding, you and bruno would go for something simple yet elegant. Like flowers around the venue (favorite ones to be exact) and everyone in town will be invited.
꒰ෆ꒱ The wedding was something unforgettable, you remembered how you walked the aisle, you couldn’t help but smile. Everyone in town found it heartwarming despite how they felt towards Bruno.
꒰ෆ꒱ You remember the way he looked the way he looked like a complete different man, it made your heart swell more and more. You just wanted to be in his arms. You thought you were dreaming, but when you saw him look at you..you realize this wasn’t a dream...it was reality.
꒰ෆ꒱ When you two shared your vows you cried during Bruno’s because of how much he has been through and how you change his life. When it was time for the ‘i dos’ you didn’t even let them finished you just shouted ‘i do’
꒰ෆ꒱ with all the smiles and laughter you shared with everyone, you couldn’t help but admire Bruno more and more. And it felt like how you two first met, two strangers in one small town bumping into each other...
