Dolores: My boyfriend is too tall for me to kiss him. What should I do?
Isabela: Punch him in the stomach. Then, when he doubles over in pain, kiss him.
Camilo: Tackle him.
Mirabel: Kick him in the shin.
Mariano: NO! NO TO ALL OF THOSE! JUST ASK ME TO LEAN DOWN!
Dolores Madrigal the prettiest girl ever
I can’t anymore
(found those pics on Twitter)
Omg i love the camilo, dolores and isabela with a s/o who's mute, can you make one where their s/o talks for the first time and how they would react hearing their s/o voice for the first time?? Thanks! :))
Pairings: Camilo Madrigal x GN Reader, Dolores Madrigal x GN Reader and Isabela Madrigal x GN Reader
Synopsis: Camilo, Dolores, and Isabela hear their mute s/o's voice for the first time
Taglist: @doloreshearsyou @fairytale-writes @jjk-ily @dai-tsukki-desu @maximuscofi @el-1-jah @onthr-dream @kenzi-woycehoski @ais-little-teacorner @maileylikesducks @whyyarewehere @ynfromencanto2430 @sunnth
It all started with camilo mentioning your voice and joking about if you talked and you thought that it would be nice to respond in your actual voice
But, you didn't just talk because camilo asked because he literally asks you to talk or what your voice sounds like all the time and because you've been mute for a long time and you weren't just going to break that vow because he asked, you actually thought about it for a while
When I tell you camilo was shocked when you spoke, he literally questioned if there was a ghost in his room or not but when he realized that it was you, he hugged you and told you how much he loved your voice
He literally loved your voice and asked you to talk more but if you weren't going to speak around anyone else then that's fine because whenever he wants to hear your voice, he can just drag you to a secluded area
You and camilo were chilling in his room together and just enjoying each other's presence while you two sat on the floor and camilo had his head in your lap as you brushed through his curly brown hair, he had purposely tangled his hair just so you could brush it.
You looked at Camilo's pajamas that sat beside you and you tapped Camilo's shoulder as you set the brush down making him look back at you and you signed "Cami, do you have pajamas to throw them on the floor or to just look at them because every time I come over here they're on the floor" and it took camilo a bit to realize what you said because he's not that good as reading and understanding it as he is when it comes to speaking it.
Camilo chuckled a bit "I do wear them, they're just not my favorite." Camilo explained making you chuckle a tiny bit and camilo then thought of something "What if you just randomly responded to me with your voice like I'd probably shit myself out of surprise." Camilo said as he turned his entire body around to face you which made him lay on his stomach "Well, that would be quite a surprise." You said making him freeze and look you in the eye, he looked around the room to make sure that no one else was there because he didn't believe that it was you speaking but then when he realized it was you, he looked back at you and he shifted into you then back into himself.
He then grinned and hugged you "Aw, your voice is so cute!" He yelled as he hugged you tightly making you chuckle at his actions as he sat up to hug you fully and not just your torso "Your voice truly did almost make me shit myself though." He whispered in your ear making you burst out laughing while camilo snuggled into your shoulder "But talk more! I like your voice!" He yelled as he smothered your face with kisses "Okay okay! That tickles!" You yelled as you laughed from the tickling feeling of Camilo's lips pressing every inch of your face.
Dolores always hears everything so she's always prepared when someone wants to tell her something but she was not prepared for this, she didn't hear you debating whether you should or not because she can't hear your thoughts
When you spoke, dolores literally froze and dropped the basket of fruit she was holding because she literally couldn't believe her ears for the first time ever
It started when you two were picking fruit from an apple tree and she was asking did you think that they were ripe, she expected you to sign an answer but instead, you said an answer with your actual voice
Dolores loved your voice so much and would ask you to talk so that she could hear it or even whisper it, everytime you go to sleep, you whisper a small "Goodnight mi amor' for dolores because you know that she can hear you and because you love to wish her goodnight and before you were never able to tell her with your voice
If you're not comfortable with talking around other people then that's fine too! She'll just settle for your whispers because even whispers are loud for her, it's just as good!
Dolores and you were just looking up at the apple tree observing the apples to see if they had any worms in them "Do you think that they're ripe?" Dolores asked as she picked one of the branches and looked closely at the shiny red apple. you hummed as you looked at the apples "Yeah, they do." You said as you picked off an apple and dropped it in the basket full of pears, oranges, and other types of fruits.
Dolores froze and dropped the apple on the green grass that had a few flowers spread out in the field, the apple rolled down the hill you two were on as dolores squeaked as she slowly turned her head to face you "What'd you say?" She asked you as she pursed her cherry red lips together.
You turned your head to face her as you halted your apple-picking "I said, yeah, they look ripe." You said as you chuckled a bit and dolores grinned and she kissed your cheek leaving a red kiss mark on your cheek "Your voice is so nice." Dolores said as she chuckled a bit "Though, you almost gave me a heart attack." Dolores said as she put a hand over her chest as she let out a deep breath making you chuckle more.
When I tell you that you almost died because of how shocked isabela was, she grew spiky plants and carnivorous plants around you because she was so caught off guard
Though it wasn't like she didn't like your voice, she loved it but she didn't expect you to talk, and just like camilo, she didn't even think it was you
Isabela loves your voice so much and likes to hear you talk about many things especially when you talk about your day while she's making flower crowns and flower necklaces for you
If you don't feel comfortable talking around anyone else then that's fine, she'll just take you to a secluded area or to her room so she can hear your voice or so you two can talk
It started with you and isabela growing flowers and plants in her room when you asked isabela what was one of the flowers she grew and she was about to answer but then she realized that you said that and not someone else
Isabela and you were just chilling in her room, you were sitting on one of her flower and vine strings while she sat on one beside you while she grew flowers beneath both of your feet "Hey isa, what's that plant?" You asked as you pointed at the bleeding hearts that she had just grown over your head "Oh those are bleeding hear-" She said but she cut herself off as she had to make sure that she had heard you and not someone else.
Isabela looked at you with confusion written all over her face then she looked around to see if anyone else was there before looking back at you with the same confusion on her face "Was that you?" She asked as you chuckled a bit at her reaction "Yeah, it was me." You said and isabela froze and stared at you with blank eyes making you laugh more but then the swing you were on came undone as isabela grew yuccas, agaves, cactuses, and different spiky plants along with carnivorous plants underneath the both of you.
Your eyes widened as you started to fall from the air but luckily you two were pretty high in the air so you didn't fall on the ground immediately "Isabela!" You yelled out making isabela snap out of her thoughts and look down at you, she hurried and removed the spiky and carnivorous plants and replaced them with a giant sunflower to catch you, you landed safely on the sunflower as isabela hopped off her swing with only her hand resting on one of the vines as she lowered herself to the sunflower.
Isabela sat next to you on the flower "Mi amor, I'm so sorry, you just caught me off guard is all." Isabela said kissing your cheek as you dusted the pollen from the sunflower off your clothes "It's fine, I would've been shocked too." You said as you leaned on her shoulder with a small smile "Your voice is (beautiful/handsome), talk more, please? I'm not gonna drop you this time." Isabela said as she smothered your face with more kisses as she grabbed your hands, at least you knew that she almost killed you because she liked your voice and not because she hated it.
Hey all! If no one saw this yet, I figured I'd post it here!
The cast/team behind Encanto is having a watch party on Twitter for Encanto Sunday, January 30th at 2pm PT/5pm ET!
Sounds like they're gonna be answering questions from fans during the viewing while on Twitter!
Think it'll be a good time to get some real good answers from everyone about the movie!!
I really hope Disney green light an Encanto's series.
The director really seems to love this world and characters and is ready to continue telling the story.
And I don't know if everyone think the same but I actually want it to be a slice of life type of story.
I think this world could really grow with a simple everyday life type of show.
Honestly I don't want a huge adventure, or drama, I just want to know them.
Of course keep working on each family member problems/traumas, it would be great to have a "surffice pressure" type of song for every family member but I don't really want it to be the whole purpose of the story.
I even kinda want to see how life was when Julieta, Pepa and Bruno were kids, that actually seems like a fun idea to explore.
I really want to see more of this people be together, and see how they act with each other. I really want to get to know them.
The cast is so big and we only had a little over 90 min. I really want it to explore the relationship between the whole Madrigal family.
This family loves each other and I love that they don't limit their affections to only their family group.
I really want moments between Mirabel and Pepa, Camilo and Julieta, Felix and Agustín, etc. And I don't mean like "a petty conflict between those people that gets resolved by the end of the episode". No, I mean a show of just passing time with them, what it looks like for a day following Pepa or Julieta or Isabela.
We know that Luisa goes around town helping people and solving various problems, and we all guess that Pepa's job is helping the crops and farmers, and Julieta is the doctor of Encanto
But what do Camilo, Isabela, Dolores, etc. Do? What's their "job"?
Even moments in which the triplets take a day for themselves to make up for the lost time.
The whole family have a great quemistry and I loveeee them all, I just want to spend more time in Encanto with the Madrigals.
I also would love to see how they use their gifts for mundane things or for fun. (I just rebloged fanart in which Dolores begs Camilo to turn into her with a dress that she saw someone wearing so she could ask Mirabel to make it for her.)
We actually hear in the movie someone ask Dolores if she could hear if someone is going to be late for Antonio's ceremony.
Kinda like the whirlpool commercial, I just need more of them.
Dating HCs For the Madrigal Girls
Ok so I'm just doing the ones over 18, respect that or be blocked.
Also for convenience these will all be pre-movie hcs. Just so we don't have to get into my ideas of how all of them would change as they heal and grow.
Warnings: Romance, kissing, probably swear words, kinda long post
You two meet in town. Maybe you're impressed with her from the beginning, maybe she has to work for your recognition but either way she is hooked on you.
She starts hoping to see you around but can't work up the courage to really seek you out for a lot of reasons, some of them dealing with her need to be perfect and some with the compulsion to do as Abuela would see fit.
Pines after you a lot because she's really into you but is seeing someone else and doesn't want to risk disappointing the family by breaking up with Mariano
Ends up seeming a lot like she hates you. She's just so frustrated by her circumstances and can't figure out how to help herself bc all her options seem terrible, and it ends up making her mouth off to you a lot because it relieves a bit of that stress.
Maybe when she accidentally pushes it and can tell she actually hurt you she panics because the last thing she wants is to hurt you or make you leave and she opens up and it's... a lot.
She yells. At one point there are tears born of some emotion she can't identify. Her fuming face is so cute.
After that you come up with the pragmatic if not morally upright solution that Isabela wishes she'd considered: secret relationship.
It's so damn easy to pull off oml
Isabela knows what's going on when in her house so she can tell when it's a good night for you to come over. She'll grow bright pink flowers on your door if she wants to see you that night, and she lets you up into her room with vines.
It's very Rapunzel-esque
You two are the cuddliest couple in private. She can't get enough of you and she demands you stay well into the night to make up for all the affection you can't share during the day.
Apologizes (albeit awkwardly) for everything she said/did before. Explains herself but not in an excuse way, she just wants you to know she never, ever held any real ill will toward you because she adores you.
Doesn't feel as guilty as she probably should for cheating on Mariano. What can she say, she's selfish. She never wanted him anyway, and it's not like he's gotta know you exist
Prefers to sneak into your room to lessen the chance of Dolores hearing you two. That loudmouth (as much love as Isa has for her) is not ruining her happiness.
She likes you playing with her hair as long as you don't tangle it, and likes to play with your hair if you'll let her. She'll definitely put flowers in it, it's a nice touch that ties you to her visually
If anyone finds out about you two she will intimidate them into silence and then run to you to privately panic.
You meet in town while Dolores is out getting something the family needs, idk flour or something. She finds you so cute immediately and shit she's in love this is a lot-
Gets to know you a bit and now she's really really in love. Pines a little but not much. Only, you're not engaged to her sister so she's happy to tell you exactly how she feels. And boy does she, her confession is something out of a book.
Your noise is the only good noise. If she can hear you just a bit more than she can hear everyone else she's happy
Not extremely touchy but she is affectionate. Knows all the little details of your life and has very sweet and specific compliments for you
Wants to feel like you notice her above all others. She knows she's quiet and easily overlooked when paired with flamboyant siblings who have flashy gifts and three outspoken, charismatic cousins. You're the one person whose focus is her and she loves that.
Goes to you when she's overwhelmed from all the noise and just wants to hang out quietly.
Probably reads to you when you're cuddling, I see her as a reader of romance novels.
Has a very sneaky sense of humor. You don't realize how funny she is until you're together but man is she a firecracker.
Probably introduces you to her family very quickly. She wants them to know who has her so happy.
Camilo is a menace as usual and will try to pass himself off as your friends and relatives to see what you say about her. He needs teasing material for his big sis okay?
Félix needs you to simp for Dolores the way he simps for Pepa or he doesn't fully approve. But he likes you fine either way and he knows his baby can handle herself.
Pepa cried and soaked the room. Antonio immediately asked if you're going to be the next Madrigal. Dolores was so embarrassed but like 👀👀👀👀 would you like to???
Likes to steal your clothes or accessories and wouldn't mind it if you did the same. It's just nice to see you parading around flaunting something that you got from her
You'll rub off on her and she might pick up some of your mannerisms. She doesn't mean to, you're just so cute it's contagious!
Tells you the hottest gossip and the rat telenovelas. She likes to come to you with all this information because a lot of the time like with Bruno she can't tell anybody else.
Couple with the vibes of a pair of old cats.
Oh god. Are you trying to kill her?! She sees you for the first time while she's hauling the donkeys around and she nearly drops one because sweet mother of fuck you're pretty.
Her crush on you is obvious from the beginning. She goes out of her way to talk to you, invites you on walks with her when she's working (gotta be efficient improvise adapt overcome), pretty much memorizes everything about you and if she had it her way your feet may never touch the ground again with how often she carries you.
Please put her out of her misery and ask her out, she's never gonna get a hint because her default setting is 'I am physically incapable of emotions that are unproductive'
Still more or less the same. "I have such a crush on my gf" vibes
Calls you every nickname in the book, and even the way she says your normal name feels like a pet name
Such a sucker for the soft affection. Kiss the back of her hand and you can see the flustered feeling bubble-ify her lungs.
Scalp massages when she takes her hair out of its bun? Rub her neck and shoulders because damn babe you sure do carry all that tension right here? Any excuse to have you touching her babe, it's the most soothing thing in the world to her.
Bear hugs that crush your soul back into your body quite nicely. Weighted blanket? Who needs one? You have Luisa.
Her parents trust her so you can sleep in her room and she gives the best cuddles. You always feel so warm and welcome and safe.
The secret room Casita gave her inside her normal room is a fantastic date spot, she loves it in there
She has a huge sweet tooth (I picture her being specifically a sea salt and caramel kind of girl) and if you get or make her something she's gonna be so happy
You're gonna have to build your schedule around her schedule because her work comes before even her own health
If you manage to convince her to take a break or rest a bit she will need you to take her mind off her responsibilities completely or else she'll be too anxious to have a good time
She'd loooooove to have a relaxing girls' night in type deal where you do those at home spa treatments and face masks and paint each other's nails and watch movies. It just feels so soft, which is something she never gets to be.
Opens up to you... kind of. She tells you stuff like how she wishes she had more time for you and on bad days she lets you comfort her but you don't truly know for certain how much it's all weighing on her until she completely breaks. She relies on you so heavily when that happens.
An early riser but won't force you to be. She'll be happy to bring you breakfast in bed on special occasions though, and she really treats you like royalty.
can i have yandere platonic encanto with a reader who can control time please?
Yandere Platonic! Camilo, Isabela and Dolores
Note: Hello anon! Thank you for this request, I noticed I am getting a lot of platonic requests😅
Pairs: Yandere! Camilo Madrigal x sister!reader, Yandere! Isabela Madrigal x sister!reader and Yandere! Dolores Madrigal x sister!reader (Platonic!)
Type: Yandere, Platonic and Headcanons
Camilo was 9 months old when you were born.
He radiates overprotective brother vibes.
He would be suspicious of everyone you knew.
Your best friend(s)
If any of them insulted you.
They would be counted as missing the next day.
Now, Isa is a bit different.
She acts like she hates you.
But she actually really cares about you.
A bit too much…
Isabela likes to look at you while you are talking to someone you know.
She’s afraid that they will hurt you emotionally or physically.
If they did, Isa will not kill them at first but torture them.
She just wants to protect her little sister.
Now Dolores is fun to hang with if she’s your sister.
When you two play tag you would use your gift and stop time and run to another spot making it harder for Dolores to catch you.
But she doesn’t watch you from afar or anything.
She can just use her gift to listen if someone is hurting you.
If someone did, Dolores will torture them with high-pitched sounds making their ears bleed and go deaf.
Thank you for reading!
Thank you for answering my requests your writing skills are fantástics!!
And i have another request if you are okay with it of course
How do you think the madrigal girls would react to seeing their girlfriend taking care of children or babys for the first time?? Ir seeing Antonio and their girlfriend have fun with his animals
note: thank you my love ♡, hope you enjoy. [ still not proof read, oops. ]
Once you heard the news of Casita crashing down from your neighbors, you put on your shoes and immediately headed your way over there — hoping that Mirabel and her family were all safe and sound.
Pepa, who was failing to comfort her son after Mirabel's disappearance thought all hope was lost until she saw you. "[Nickname!]" She called out, being more than happy to see you.
"Can you please help calm down Tonito while I go search for Mirabel?!" Pepa was about to ramble, until you nodded your head, giving her a small smile. "Go, I'll take care of it."
Pepa smiled back, before joining her Felix and Dolores on their search.
You then started to approach Antonio slowly, not wanting to upset him in anyway possible. "She's not coming back, is she?" Antonio wiped his tears away, hugging himself as he looked at his broken home.
You looked around, picking up the stuffed animal Mirabel had made him. "No, I think she will. She loves you all too much to just leave and never come back." You reassured, picking Antonio up so he wouldn't get cut on the sharp rocks that were on the floor, handing him the stuffed animal.
He smiled ‐ clutching the stuffed cheeta while laying his head on your chest. "Do you promise?" You nodded, holding him close. "Of course.."
Mirabel, was watching the scene with her Abuela and Tio Bruno. "You picked the right girl." Abuela said approvingly, watching Mirabel's lips curve into a smile.
You woke up to a shaken Dolores and upset Antonio at your door.
"What happened?!" You winced, grabbing Antonio, who was currently sobbing his heart out. "I accidentally ripped his stuffed animal, Mirabel isn't around to fix it so I figured I bring him to you!" Dolores explained, covering her eyes as tight as she could — the sound of Antonio crying hurting her ears.
You sighed, "Oh Dolores.." You turned to Antonio, wiping the tears off his face. "Do you wanna wait in the living room with your sister? Or do you wanna fix him with me?"
Antonio timidly pointed upstairs, earning an immediate nod from you. "Alright, let's not waste anytime!"
While you two were busy fixing his plush, Dolores listened in from downstairs, leaning her head to the left to hear what was happening. When she heard the laughter of her younger brother, a small smile made its way to her face.
Truth be told, Dolores created this scheme to see if you were good with kids. Now that she knew you were, she could do nothing, but only day dream about your future in silence.
"I got your call, what happened..?!" You stared at your girlfriends room in shock, animals flying and running around everywhere.
"Hi [Name]! Isabela let me bring my animal friends with me!" Antonio waves at you excitedly, Isabela trailing behind him. "Join us!" She exclaimed, tugging on your arm to lead you inside her room.
"Okay! Okay!" You let out a small laugh, your skirt getting dirty from all the flower powder scattered all over the place.
Antonio let out a small giggle, making you turn your head towars him. "Just what do you think you're laughing at?" You teased, grabbing red powder and chasing Antonio around.
Isabela nearly fangirled at the sight, snapping out of her trance when you started to violently shake her. "Quick! After that cheeta!" You pointed, playfully calling Antonio a cheater.
Isabela quickly did what you asked, and with that being said, you two spent your afternoons chasing after Antonio, which ended up in a mess you all had to eventually clean up.
Pepa: Camilo is in so much trouble
Dolores: why? It's been nothing but quite all morning?
Pepa: exactly. He's either planning something or already in jail
Encanto! Dark AU
I saw many whine about Alma and hating her.
Saying how much of a Villain she was and how bad she grew her family.
And I think she could have grown them way worse (not saying she did well) and here I’ll show how to you.
This is all my theory though.
In the village there is no healer, no doctor nor pharmacist so the only way to get healed, live for a long time and/or stay healthy is to go to Julieta.
And you better be good or she will leave you to die.
Her healing food is only for those worthy, as in those who obey and don’t oppose the Madrigal family.
Do you want a prophecy?
He’ll lie and interpret it in the worse way so here is how... obey the family and all will go well.
It’s written in the future, after all.
You don’t wanna get hurt, do you?
Because if you don’t obey... you might get badly hurt.
Plus, don’t even try.
He will discover you and send the strongest Madrigals after you.
So be good.
She’ll control the weather so... you want food to grow?
Don’t make her mad or disobey because, otherwise, a storm might destroy your field.
The entire time.
Whatever you say gets heard and told so bite your tongue or you won’t live a long life.
Is your husband really your husband?
Is he Camilo?
Nervousness devours the villagers since they have no way of telling.
And any plan of trying a coup... how can you organise one if you don’t know who to trust?
Or who you’re really talking to?
Encanto’s forest is so dangerous.
Filled with ferocious animals.
But don’t you worry, Antonio will protect you.
If you’re good.
And it seems like sometimes people disappear there.
People against the family.
Quite easy to understand.
She’s there ready to help you with whatever.
She’ll even assemble your own house like a LEGO game.
She’ll reassemble your limbs.
She is perfect.
If you act like her and take her as an example everything will go well.
Life will be a dream.
Just be perfect.
It seems like the youngest and giftless kid has gone missing after the ceremony.
Who knows where she went.
Perhaps she left Encanto.
Perhaps she left Encanto for good.
But don’t worry.
Mirabel’s tragedy won’t happen again.
The Madrigal family will protect you.
As long as you follow the rules.
Mirabel didn’t and disappeared.
If you do... the Madrigal family will protect you.
So... What do you think?
The canon doesn’t sound that bad, does it now?
Camilo: This is it.
Camilo: This is the darkest hour.
Dolores: We just ran out of black licorice, you dramatic asshole.
So I used to think Félix whispering when he tells Camilo to stop impersonating Dolores was basically so he doesn’t bring attention to his son misbehaving but now I realize he’s probably whispering bc Dolores is right behind him and he and Pepa both probably tend to whisper and speak softer when she’s around so they don’t hurt her ears 🥺
I haven't seen it mentioned before but I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed this: the imagery in this movie is phenomenal and so well done.
Dolores sings about how the man of her dreams is betrothed to another
We follow her and where she finishes her part flowers grow
We follow those flowers down to
ISABELA! Not only is our gaze directed to the "other" woman, it is done by flowers, Isabelas trademark.
A pretty cool visual hint on top of the lyrics...
Gosh I love that movie.
Imagine being Dolores’ best friend, a trans man, and after you come out her realising Bruno’s prophecy could’ve been about you all along.
Dolores had just assumed her prophecy was about Marino because he was:
Betrothed to someone else
Although she always felt a connection with you she thought her prophecy was pretty straightforward so she never considered it could be about you.
She was not correct.
When you came out as a trans man to her and told her you used he/him pronouns there was a small voice in the back of her mind that thought about the prophecy but you weren’t promised to another so how could that work? No it surely had to be Marino and so she dated him and was happy...at first. She thought she’d like how loud he was in that endearingly annoying way but after a while she just found it too much. He talked constantly and she spent her time with him doing what she always did, just listening and being quiet. With you she was the loudest person in the room and the dynamic was totally different. She felt free to express herself in a way she’d never experienced with anyone else, not even her family, because you listened to her! You didn’t just want to hear what she’d overheard or use her powers for your own convenience, you wanted to know how she felt or what she was thinking and nobody had ever asked her that before.
So Dolores was struggling with the feeling she was falling for the wrong person when everything fell into place the day you got a request from your grandfather. He was old and wouldn’t likely be around for much longer but he had one wish before he died. He and his best friend had always dreamed of their bloodlines coming together through marriage and you just happened to be the same age as his friend’s grandson. Dolores didn’t like this news and was surprised how anxious it made her imagining you with someone else. She was on edge waiting for you to tell her what you’d said in response she finally just blurted “so what did you tell him?” unable to contain herself. “I told him no of course!” you cried “I’m attracted to women and while I appreciate him being cool with the idea of me marrying a man I’m simply not attracted to men. I’m not going to marry someone just because he wants it. Family isn’t about who you’re legally tied to, it’s who you feel closest to and I told my grandfather that”. “What did he say?” Dolores asked imagining how her Abuela would react if she ever refused a request to further the family just because she didn’t want to. You however just smiled. “He told me he completely agreed and would write to his friend telling him the deal was off...apparently they’d kind of already agreed so technically I was engaged for a couple of days”. Dolores’ blood ran cold as you said that. Bruno’s prophecy came back to her and she realised you, the man of her dreams, now fit his prediction completely.
Dolores was now certain she’d been with the wrong person all this time but she wanted to run the idea by her family first. They’d all assumed the prophecy was about Mariano like her so she wanted to run her realisation by them and she did so at the dinner table. As usual once she’d finished speaking everyone looked to Abuela. “I like y/n but I’m not sure this could be about him” she said. “Why?” Dolores asked and her Abuela sighed. “Well y/n was assigned female gender at birth and at the time of the prophecy we all assumed she was a girl, how would Bruno have known that and changed it to her correct pronouns?” Abuela asked. Dolores already had an answer to that “well y/n was assigned female gender at birth but he was always a man. So he was a man at the time of the prophecy, we just didn’t know it yet”. “Can it work like that?” Abuela asked Bruno who shrugged “hey prophecies are hard to interpret but I know two things. One, they’re never as straightforward as you think meaning it probably wasn’t about Marino at all that’d be too obvious. Second, trans men are men so I see no reason why this can’t be about y/n”. Dolores beamed and her parents both put an arm around her back “we think it’s about y/n but the most important thing is that you think it about him” Pepa smiled. Felix nodded “that’s right, if you love him then we say go for it”. Dolores smiled, tears leaking down her face as Antonio nodded...Camilo on the other hand was frowning. “Has anyone considered y/n might not want to marry Dolores though?” he asked and Antonio elbowed him in the shin. “I’m kidding” Camilo cried nursing his leg “we both support you too of course”. Dolores smiled at all her family and wiped away the tears “thank you all so much. While I don’t need your permission it is nice to have your support. I’m going to ask y/n tonight when he comes over...if he wants to date me not marry me” she said nodding to Camilo “I’ll let you know what he says”. Everyone wished her luck and Dolores went to her room to wait for you.
She sat by her window, facing the direction you’d come and fretted about how she’d tell you. She couldn't think of any straightforward way to say it and was just working herself up into a panic. Finally she spotted you approaching the house from her window and rushed downstairs to meet you. She opened the door just as you were about to knock and you jumped “Dolores! Were you waiting for me?”. “Maybe” she shrugged “I just have something I need to talk to you about...can we go talk in my room before dinner?”. You nodded “of course” and followed Dolores to her room.
Dolores closed her door and you looked at her expectantly. Dolores looked away and began fiddling with things on her table to buy herself time. “Erm Dolores?” you asked after a few minutes and she turned around “yeah?”. “That thing you have to tell me?”. She nodded “ow yeah well erm...Bruno had this prophecy about me and all this time I thought it was about someone else but now I think it’s about you”. You frowned “okay we can work this out, what’s the prophecy”. “See that’s the thing” Dolores said hesitantly “I want you to know if you don’t want the prophecy to be about you then I’ll drop it and it won’t have to be about you”. You paused “but I thought the whole point of a prophecy is you can’t escape it? I can’t just decide I don’t want it to be about me, it’s not a choice”. Dolores winced “no but in this circumstance you do, I’m not forcing you into anything just because of a prophecy”. You stared “force me into anything...Dolores what is the prophecy?”. “Okay so Bruno told me there would be this man”. You nodded “okay with you so far, i tick that box”. “He said he’d be important for me but he’d be betrothed to another”. Again you nodded “I was engaged for a while and I like to think I’ve been important to you, why are you so worried? This isn’t bad”. Dolores sighed “when Bruno said important he meant in the love sense” she explained and you paused “love? As in friendship or...”. “His exact words were “the man of your dreams”. Your eyes widened and you stared at Dolores as if entranced. “The man of your...you think that definition fits me?”. Dolores blushed and made a small squeak but nodded “I like you y/n. Ever since we were kids I felt this pull to you, I loved being around you and I felt jealous when you made new friends or liked other girls. I figured it was just me being protective because I didn’t think you fit with the prophecy. Then you came out as your true gender and you got betrothed...and I realised it had been you all along. Atleast from my point of view, just because you’re the man of my dreams doesn’t mean I have to be the woman of yours. You do have a choice y/n and I'll support whatever you choose”. Silence settled and finally you stopped staring and looked down. “I’m honestly just a little shocked because...” but Dolores cut in “I know it’s a lot to take in but don’t worry you can take as long as you need to decide what you want to do”. You shook your head “ow no I know exactly what my decision is, yes Dolores. I’d love to date you, I just can’t believe I’m the man of your dreams! You’re Dolores! The most quirky, funny, beautiful girl in our whole village. I love how calm and collected you appear but how with me you can be reckless and childish. I find you’re inability to keep even the smallest secret hilarious and I smiled every time I see you. You can sing, dance, throw shade like it’s nothing and you hold the burden of your family like a warrior...saying I’m the man of your dreams makes me so surprised because I have no idea how I’m good enough for a girl like you”. Dolores was bright red when you finished and made a small squeak in response before rushing to wrap her arms around you. You of course caught her and hugged her back holding her close to you. “Of course you’re good enough for me” she told you “to me you’re perfect y/n”. You smiled “Dolores Madrigal are you flirting with me”. “Yes but let me make it more obvious” she cried and leant in. You met her halfway and kissed her softly. It was as amazing as you’d always dreamt and you melted into the kiss becoming a soppy mess. When Dolores pulled away you stared at her in a daze “i’m the luckiest guy in the world, I know your cousins have gifts but they’ve got nothing on how privileged I am”. Dolores blushed and took your hand “you’re so sweet” and she went to kiss you again when there was a knock on the door. “Dolores dinner is ready” Camilo called and she called back you’d be down soon. “So how do you want to do this?” you asked her “tell your family or do you want more time?”. Dolores laughed “well they actually already know, I told them I’d worked out why the prophecy was about and that I was telling you now so...the second we walk in together they’ll know”. You were slightly intimidated but then you reminded yourself these were the Madrigals. The family you’d loved since you were a child, they’d all welcomed you and supported you constantly. Not to mention you weren’t alone. Dolores took your hand “you ready?”. You weren’t the bravest person but for Dolores you’d go anywhere so you nodded “let’s do this” and she opened the door.
I’ll be honest, I don’t like Mariano and I think it must’ve sucked to have your prophecy just be about some guy...so I changed it into a trans love story!
Full disclosure I’m not trans and this is my second time writing for a trans person but representation matters and I wanted to give some trans content and what better time with pride month (UK) just around the corner.
If there are any trans people who think I should’ve done something differently or have any tropes they hate/want to see more of just let me know and i’ll try and exclude/include them in future pieces.
I just watched Encanto for the 7 th time today in the last two days and I am absolutely obsessed with it. (Contains spoilers)
First things first is that I *Hate* Abuela. Like I understand that shes been through a lot: she saw her husband die, she lost her home and she was a single mother to three kids, and the whole village basically depended on her. Out of nowhere she was given a miracle which was a second chance for her so she was absolutely paranoid about losing it, which was the reason why she was emotionally abusive to the rest of the family. She forced them to BECOME their gifts to keep the miracle going. But my statement still stands: Just because you have gone through something does not mean you can put others through something bad. I still hate Abuela and I will not change my mind.
As much as Abuela is the main abuser, I think the parents also play a part in what the children go through: Julietta's gift is to heal people with a meal so therefore this makes her the "fixer" of the family which basically means that whenever there is an issue in the family, she believes that it's *her* responsibility to take care of it and solve it and she feels as if she has "failed" if she can't solve something. Also healing is a very laborious task, we can see this kind of mentality in Julietta's kids; they both have very powerful and useful gifts which they have to use to help the village to the point where they overdo it and if they don't, they feel like they have failed. This is very well represented in the song "Surface Pressure" were Luisa basically outright says ' I am pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service' also we see this with Isabella, she had been forced to be the perfect child and make perfect flowers and help the village, even as much as marrying someone for the family. Which we can see in the song " Wha else can I do" later after the song ends she is genuinely happy but we can quickly see that happiness fade away when Abuela comes in and says "Isabella is out of control" . And if we talk about Mirabel, she was just straight up boycotted from her family for not having a gift. The only person shown to care about her were her parents but even then we can see that she felt like she had to do things she couldn't just sondhe could feel part of her family and be seen. This is how I feel that Julietta has till some extent unknowingly passed down her trauma to her kids.
Now if we talk about Pepa, she has been emotionally gaslit throughout the entire movie. As supportive as Felix is as a husband, nobody really validates her feelings. She is basically told to not feel her feelings and never really asked why she was feeling what she was. Whenever she was n a bad mood, she was told by Abuela that she had a cloud and she had to think about clear skies and have the cloud go away. This caused her to extra vigilant of her feeling and emotions to the point that she was paranoid about having feelings. Now, Dolores has a sensory gift: hearing. She can basically hear anything and everything that is going on in the entire Encanto. Having this gift means she is extremely sensitive to noises and has to be very vigilant because she has to know everything that is going on also because everybody expects her to know what's going on. This could be a very big headache-especially for her since loud noises. Her room is probably her sanctuary for when the world gets too loud. Camilo's gift is shapeshifting Camilo is a teen who doesn't know who they are yet, still growing in life and trying different personas. He is the "Entertainer" of the family. He makes people laugh and smile. That mentality could always come from seeing his mom distressed and wanting to make her smile and make her happy so that she can make genuine clear skies instead of faking it or pushing her feelings away. Seeing his mother go through something like that could always cause him to become someone who wants others to be happy and make them happy. And he feels obligated to do so. If we talk about Antonio, he had the weight of the world on his shoulders since he was born! After Mirabel didn't get her gift, all the hopes were riding on Antonio. He as a five year old had to worry about wether the family miracle would die with him... The entire family, the miracle, the family's reputation and the entire village's expectations; he had to shoulder them all. The stress and anxiety of not being "good enough" or "what if I fail" made him second guess himself. The only person who knew about this and actually cared was Mirabel.
Now Bruno, he is the Scapegoat of the family. Anything that went wrong was blamed on him. He was misunderstood and shunned. He was the only one who saw the truth and nobody allowed him to explain himself and but also blamed him for something he couldn't control. He could only see the future and interpret it, he could not say something and make it happen. He was just a very socially awkward person- the mistimed joke about rain about Pepa's nervousness and joy or the unfinished explanation about Dolores's lovelife- just proves that.
All in all, the characters are all amazing (except Abuela) but as a family....just nope.
They do change at the end of movie(as shown) but they still have a long way to go.
The music and song are lit though. (My favourites are surface pressure and we don't talk about Bruno)
Fun fact: Madrigal is actually a sort of music style where a number of different voices sing over each other like the ending of "we don't talk about Bruno"
what if Encanto duos played the marble game?
I saw on tiktok “what if those Encanto duos played the marble game” and when it come to Dolores & Mariano the creator said the one who dies would be Mariano but I actually think it would be Dolores
First of all Mariano is stupid, he wouldn’t even know what’s happening (joking)
Now being serious I just think that Dolores loves him so much she would never let him die. But Mariano loves her too right? He also wouldn’t let her die. So I think Dolores would somehow manipulate Mariano into thinking that she is winning but in fact it would be Mariano. I mean he’s is kind of stupid so he probably wouldn’t notice. When the game ends and the guardians come Mariano would still be sure he is the one who dies but then they point the gun to Dolores. Mariano would be like “w-what?” and Dolores would just look at him with tears in her eyes and smile. And then she dies, Mariano cries but he eventually moves on
ay I went a bit dramatic lmao sorry but I wanted to share my thoughts
have a nice day/night <3
My brain at the worst times: "have you met Dolores?Oki I'll take it from here goodbye! You talk so loud, you take care of your mother and you make her proud, you write your own poetry every night when you go to sleep and I'm seizing the moment so would you wake up and notice me?"
My friends who have to listen to me sing the whole thing: 😐🥲
"Camilo deja de fingir que eres Dolores solo para repetir"
