Thinking about that tweet where it says that Brunos room grew more spacious the more he grew estranged from his family.
Thinking about Bruno slowly realizing that he has to climb more and more steps and not knowing why and not knowing how to stop his room from doing that.
Thinking about Bruno feeling like he is loosing his mind because why are there even more steps than yesterday? Wasn't today bad enough with him disappointing his Madre again and the village blaming him for some inane thing again?
Thinking about Bruno climbing those steps, every day a few more than the last, no matter what he does. Until he stops counting them. Stops caring. Just climbs climbs climbs.
Just... Thinking about that.
words- 182; genre - fluff; warning - i never tried to write in english
Sunbeams sneaking into my room. made me think of you. And now I'm running out of the room, my legs carry me forward to you.
Amber is the color of your energy. You shine golden naturally.
The Sun kissed you, gave you freckles on your cheeks. You don’t even know how beautiful they are. Your smile and your laughter is a gift from the Gods. The hair I want to stroke forever, so soft...
Warm morning wind blows across the face. People are just starting their day. I know you’re on your way to help people in town.
I’m on my way to the fountain to meet you. At least I hope so. I want to hug you and say that i---
Then I guess you’ll smile and say we met yesterday. But I don’t have enough!
And as I approached the fountain in the main square, we made eye contact.
We are fast coming to each other. And at the same time :
- hola mi sol!
- hola mi vida!
Мy heart beats so loud... I can hear your too...
bruno, in the walls: bless you
family weirdos gotta stick together
based off an idea I had at like 3 AM that Mirabel embroiders Bruno’s ruana post-canon
this is lk rushed so yeahhh hjkdhsadsf
BRUNO X READER
“Yeah I’d like that”
Y/n panted as, finally, she reached the top of the torturous stone steps leading up to the fortune tellers cave- well she called it a cave but it was probably his room.
She had heard of the Bruno Madrigal and all the rumors that came with it, warning her to be cautious and wary, but y/n didn’t care. She wanted her future told and she was gonna be a big girl about what came of it. She wasn’t going to blame the guy for what happened, she was just curious
Bruno met her at the entrance of his fortune cave- he honestly thought she was joking when she, a very pretty girl, approached him for a vision ‘but then again if it’s a bad fortune she’ll probably flip like everyone else’ he thought as she brushed off her skirts and sent him a beaming smile
“You seriously climb those stairs every time you want to go to bed- god I pity you” she spoke softly never once loosing her smile “I manage-I suppose” Bruno muttered opening the circular door to the cave and gesturing her in “after you”
Y/n span in a slow circle on the spot, taking in the small area, it was quite bleak but she supposed that it wasn’t what most people focused on in the room, she watched as Bruno started drawing a circle around her with sand and decided not to ask questions ‘he probably gets tired of people asking to detail what he’s doing’ she thought as the circle became complete.
“If you could kneel down? I’m sorry it’s just easier that way” Bruno uttered- too scared to actually push her to do what he wanted, he didn’t need ‘pushing a beautiful girl to the floor’ on his list of bad deeds the town seemed to have.
Y/n did as she was told and watched excitedly as he started his ritual, throwing sugar and salt over his shoulder and lighting sage in the four plies of sand he’d made.
He opened his hands out towards her “you might wanna hold on, it gets really windy” y/n happily put her hands in his, feeling a small spark go off at the contact. She smiled at him and said “I won’t judge what you see, I’m simply curious”
Bruno gave a small smile and breathed heavily, that’s what most people said before something bad happened.
He started to view the future and y/n gasped at the beauty of the sand storm mixed with jade she was in the center of. Then through the mist she saw images coming together:
Her holding her fathers hand on a walk
Her with a small bunch of flowers
Her cat in her arms, dead
And lastly her standing infront of La casa Madrigal
The vision stopped and Bruno caught the vision and closed his eyes- ready for the enslaught of negativity, the poor girl would loose her cat and she would blame it on him- just like the lady with the goldfish
She sighed and whispered “I knew he was gonna go soon” and he looked up, she wasn’t shouting or breaking the vision- she was simply looking at it and smiling softly
Y/n looked up at Bruno and said “I wonder why I’m standing infront of your casa? Maybe I come back for more visions? I wouldn’t mind it- they’re very beautiful” and Bruno felt his heart beat faster
This beautiful girl, had received a bad vision- and wasnt blaming him, wasn’t shouting and crying but saying she would come back.
But not for his sisters and not for his Mamí but for him.
He felt himself smiling softly and stood, offering her a hand- “yeah” he muttered “I’d like that a lot actually, maybe I’ll do something about the stairs for next time” she giggled and held his hand again “maybe a pulley system” she held the vision out to him “so you keep these or should I take it with me?”
Y/n watched as he pondered on it then pushed the vision back to her “you should keep it miss Er” “Y/n, just Y/n to you” they chuckled and Bruno felt a small surge of courage
“Could I possibly walk you home? If you don’t mind that is” Bruno rambled ‘she wouldn’t want you to walk her back, imagine the villagers reactions’ she grabbed his hand once more and headed for the cave door
“Yeah, I’d like that”
Camilo, going to the kitchen to get bread at three in the morning:
Bruno, stealing cheese from the fridge: hi Camilo
Camilo: hi tio Brun—tiO BRUNO⁉️⁉️
I wanted to draw him digitally but I am too lazy rn to do it lmao. Anyways, I haven't seen the movie yet, but I already love our ratman Bruno.
(Please don't repost or steal)
Gotta dump some of my Encanto headcanons
-Dolores is very good at telling if someone’s lying, as well as games that require bluffing since she can hear if the person’s heartbeat speeds up￼
-Mirabel makes most her families clothes, and uses the scraps from sewing them together to make a big quilt with tons of different patterns
-Isabela occasionally leaves Encanto on trips to learn more about plants, and is fascinated by biology. You can tell when she’s recently returned since the house will be overflowing with strange new plants
-After the house is rebuilt, Bruno’s room is much nicer, somewhat similar to his space behind the walls with a lot of tight, warm spaces for him to go. His vision chamber is nowhere near his bedroom
-Camilo likes to turn into people and play a fun game of “see how long I can hang out at a party before someone realizes I’m Camilo.” Once someone confessed their love for them while they were disguised as another person. It was really awkward when they turned back.
-Bruno and Isabela have hotboxed the vision cave
-Luisa decides that she wants to learn more about, well, everything, since she actually has the time now. So when Isabela returns from her trips outside of Encanto, it’s usually with a ton of books for Luisa
-Antonio doesn’t eat meat for obvious reasons
-Mirabel has dreams of expanding Encanto, or at least offering sanctuary to travelers passing through. She’s drawn out plans and the walls of her room are absolutely covered in drawings of her plans
-Antonio and Isabela both have a deep hatred of mushrooms. Isabela because they’re not quite plants, and therefore very difficult to make, and Antonio because they’re enough like animals that he can sort of hear them humming if he listens close enough. It creeps him out and he does not care for that shit
-Mirabel learned accordion from Augustín, and he’s much better at it than she is. There’s a family story about how Augustín attempted to seduce Julieta with a song on the accordion, and ended up falling and breaking his finger. Even then, he still tried to play
-There’s a trapdoor in Bruno’s vision cave— if the person he gives a vision to gets mad at him, he just throws sand at them and ducks into the trapdoor
-Camilo is genderfluid, and finds it fun to experiment with their expression. Especially when they realizes that they don’t have to fuck with normal human anatomy. The family fully support them, even if they do go a little avant-garde with their gender expression (think MUXXXE)
-Luisa is still very paranoid about her strength fading, and when it gets bad she’ll sit with Abuela Alma and the candle. Alma tells her all about Pedro, and assures that as long as the family is strong, she will be too
-Bruno has trouble adjusting to eating with the family again, as well as sleeping at normal hours. He has a stash of food in his room, and if he’s out in the house at night, Casita will help him stay quiet
in this house we DO talk about bruno
last year was something huh...anyway encanto brainrot

-ˋ₊˚. ꒰ SYNOPSIS ꒱ . proposal and wedding headcanons
-ˋ₊˚ :: CONTENT . fluff, super sweet !!
˗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...
Big smile :D
Teen!Bruno Madrigal x Foreign Fem!Reader 「Chapter 1」
This is probably gonna be a short fic instead of a one-shot, I wanted to start it on their teenage years, but will probably make the rest of the story pass by after the birth of Luisa, Isabela and Dolores!
Read it on AO3
Bruno Madrigal. You've heard this name so many times since you and your family moved to Encanto, it wass as if the guy was the only talk on the village. Be it via hushed whispers, disapproving gossip or even revolted screams, everyone always had something to say about him.
Being knew in the village meant you hadn't met the Madrigals yet, curious about their powers and what they would look like! The only one you've seen so far was Señora Alma, the lady being kind enough to introduce you to a few of your neighbours.
Now, a week has passed and you still haven't had the time to meet many people, more focused in helping your parents get habituated.
"That Madrigal boy is a magnet of bad luck! You and your family better stay away from him!" your neighbour commented one day, as you were helping your mom hang some clothes to dry outside. "Came to my son one day telling him he was gonna be in pain, and wouldn't you know? The very next day he broke his arm!"
Your mom hummed along, not really paying much attention to the older woman. She seemed to have taken a liking to you, already joking about how you and her son were the same age, nudging you into talking to him as much as you could.
"But why would it be his fault?" you asked, confused. "Did he break his arm or something?"
"He wouldn't dare, he's skinny as a stick, that one! It was his bad luck! If he had kept quiet it wouldn't have happened!" she seemed enraged about it. "Alma needs to do something about that boy, or else he'll keep spreading his curses around!"
The conversation didn't seem to be going anywhere, so you decided to tune it out, the older woman ranting about the boy to your mom, while you hummed to yourself. Finishing your task quickly, you blew your mom a kiss, waving to your neighbour and deciding to finally check out the village properly.
Crossing the bridge that connected one half of the village to the other, you heard the soft clicks of tiles tapping against each other, following the sound for a bit, stopping in front of Casa Madrigal, smiling softly at the sweet aroma of passion fruit in the air.
"Hii! You're new here, right? Mamá told us about you!" a red haired girl happily skipped next to you, colours lightly shifting around her as she spoke. "I'm Pepa Madrigal! But you can call me just Pepa!"
"Hi, Pepa!" you waved at her, introducing yourself. "It's nice to finally meet one of the famous Madrigals! Your family is pretty popular, huh?"
She laughed, linking yor arm with hers as she talked about her gift and how it usually got people's attention, walking towards the house and guiding you to the kitchen, where a brunette girl sat, munching on a piece of cake.
"Julieta! Look who I found right in front of our house! It's the new girl!" gesturing for you to sit down, Pepa took her place next to her sister, still happily chatting as she served you a piece of cake. "I was telling her about our gifts!"
"Ai ai, Pepita! Mamá told you not to go running your mouth already..." the girl said, jokingly, turning to you. "She's not overwhelming you, is she? She does that sometimes."
"No, no! I have no problem listening to you guys, really!" you waved your hands in front of your body, gesturing for Pepa to continue her story as you finished your piece of cake.
After a while, you noticed the sun starting to settle down, getting up and quickly thanking the girls for the chat, telling them you had to be home soon. They waved you goodbye, inviting you to come over any time, happy to have made a new friend.
As the days passed, you got closer to Pepa, accompanying her on her errands, talking about yout life before going to Encanto and laughing at her stories about her family, they were always very nice to you, but you still hadn't met the infamous Bruno, being told that he was either in his room or already left the house every time you came over.
On the other hand, it seemed like the villagers had even more to say about him than before, and it was starting to get in your nerves. Pepa and Julieta told you very few things about Bruno, but they were all positive, and you didn't get the hatred the people of Encanto had towards him.
You knew it made his sisters sad, hearing them complain about how it wasn't Bruno's fault what he saw on his visions, and they were your only friends there, so it was starting to get you down too. After passively listening to another of your neighbour's rants once more, you decided to go for a walk so you could cool off.
Her son didn't get the hint, apparently, rushing to your side as you walked towards the village's market, waving the cast on his arm, his mom too prideful and irritated to let Julieta take care of it.
"You've been awfully close to the Madrigal's lately, huh?" he started. "Did you get the weirdo to see your future already?"
"I'm sorry, who?" you cocked an eyebrow, turnining to look at him with an irritated look.
"You know, Bruno!" he reminded you, indignantly. "The one who broke my arm!"
"You broke your own arm out of sheer stupidity, Nicolas, Bruno was just trying to warn you." turning to one of the food stands, you looked at what they had for sale, still annoyed at the guy next to you, gesturing to his cast with your head. "And then you keep the pityful look, even after Julieta offered multiple times to help you out with that."
Nicolas let out an indignant huff, opening his mouth to complain once more, before looking behind you with a slightly frightened expression, and quietly gesturing for you to leave. You cocked your head, turning around to see a boy around your age, his skinny frame towering over you, a large green poncho almost engulfing him. He looked like he wanted to tell you something, but before he could even start, you were already warning him.
"Sí?" you locked your eyes on his, still annoyed. "I swear, if you heard me and are gonna try and tell me another puta historia about Bruno, I will not hold myself from doing something I might regret later."
"Well, I'll try not to be too egocentric." the guy in front of you gave you a short smile, before extending his hand for you to shake. "Bruno Madrigal, nice to meet you."
I'm just gonna say it, Luisa is one of the most underrated characters in Encanto. And honestly she's one of the most relatable next to Bruno of course. She's literally stressed out crying on the floor because she can't do things the way she used to, (she couldn't lift heavy things the way she used to after her gift starts slowly dying out). Like am I the only one that stress cries over shit like that?
I haven’t seen anyone talk about this but right before the “Hernando–Jorge” scene Bruno whispers
“Sana sana colita de rana”
It’s a common phrase among Latin American children meant to heal those who are hurt.
While Bruno is saying it he’s actively avoiding the cracks in Casita. What I’m trying to say is, he is doing everything he can to save the family from the inside that he resorts to children rhymes and that’s kinda sad
Also maybe he tryna comfort himself
I love him-
But anyways, you can just see how inconsistent my artstyle is. Probably going to be my last post for a while since I have a shitton of schoolwork even tho it's Christmas break (I hate it when teachers do this)
anyway i think Bruno would spoil the fuck out of you 24/7. He knows what it’s like to feel unloved and pushed away, he’d never want you to feel the way he did.
Acts of service, he’s always holding doors open for you, making the bed in the morning, offering to do your chores, doing your chores even if you said “it’s fine!” When he was spending time with his sister Julieta, she taught him how to bake and cook and now he bakes you all sorts! He either takes you to his little hideout in the walls or secret places around the Encanto. Just for some alone time♡
Word of affirmation!! I think Bruno would definitely want to be praised due to how he was treated. So, he’d feel the need to always praise and shower you with affectionate words too!! It’s like he forgot your name with the amount of pet names he calls you. “I love you, Mi corazón.” “Mi amor, you look so good today!” And on the occasion where he’d call you by your name, he’d add “ito” to the end of it, just liked his mother does to him, to add a little bit of sweetness to his words♡
Bruno: Oh! You are going to get married in the future, congratulations.
Y/N: Is it to you?
Bruno: What- I- Probably not?
Y/N: I don’t like this future, can you change it?
