Mirabel: Dolores, hey. You know, out of all my older cousins, you’re like my favourite cousin…
Camilo: *shapeshifting back* I THOUGHT I WAS UR FAVOURITE COUSIN
what will happen if camilo finds the reader in his ruana? how will he react? requested by @callmelin-07
You were just curious that’s all. The two of you had been together for a while now and not once did you see Camilo without his beloved ruana.
You often thought he didn’t wash it and just wore the same one every single day. Though surprisingly he never smelled.
You’ve worn ruanas before but never have you worn Camilo’s.
And that got you thinking. If Camilo wear ruana everyday. Ruana must be comfy. If ruana comfy, ruana good. If ruana good, you’re missing out.
You wanted to experience that ruana. Out of all things. Sure one can argue it was just a ruana but it was your boyfriend’s ruana. It’s one of a kind, it was special.
You didn’t think you had the chance to try it on. Until one particularly hot day in Encanto. Try as the two of you may to get rid of the heat, you two practically felt like melting under the sun.
“Can your mamá make it snow or rain, ‘Milo? The heat.. it’s killing me..”
“You and me both..” He had rolled over, groaning in frustration as he had kicked the covers of his bed aside. Even the blankets were hot!
“I’m gonna go see if Tia Julieta has any ice or something refreshing to eat.” He stood up before he looked down at his ruana and sighed. “Even this is too hot.” He shrugged off his ruana, left only in his white button up long sleeves.
He threw it on the bed before leaving.
Target in sight. 🎯
You immediately took it in your hands, eyes wide as if you had the universe’s secrets in your hand. The ruana was soft and vibrant in color, it didn’t look like he had been wearing it for years like your own theories suggested. It had chameleons all over it as well as dark yellow stripes.
You were in awe.
And a smile appeared on your features.
It’s free real estate.
Was this what it felt to be blessed like the gods? Possibly.
You looked around, glancing at the door for a moment before you slowly put it on, looking at the many mirrors of your lover’s room.
Hey you looked pretty in it. Dare you say, yellow was your color.
Humming to yourself before you raised your arms up. “Seven foot frame..” You lurched over as if there were tiny animals running down your back. “Rats along his back, when he calls your name it all fades to black..” You sang your boyfriend’s lines.
You often heard him practicing these so that he could scare the little children as a prank of sorts.
“Jose..!” You exclaim, doing that little twirl he had whenever Camilo had shifted into someone.
“Really, mi vida?” Came your shapeshifter boyfriend’s snicker as you turn to him, and icy treat called cholao in one hand two slices of tres leches on the other.
He really didn’t expect to return to his significant other basically just copying him. And in his ruana too.
Though now that he looked at you closely in his ruana, the man was down bad
He was all red. The gears in his mind turning.
You + His clothes = adorable.
Camilo couldn’t lie. It did look really good on you. The ruana was a bit too big but that added more to your cuteness. He couldn’t help the smile on his features as he gushed about how adorable you were.
He let out a low whistle, back against the wall and a hand on his chest as if he was struck by cupid the moment he laid eyes on you in his clothing. “Ay mamacita, look at you.”
Man is hyped up. Oh lord you were gorjus. Gorrrrjus.
“Ay bonita, my beautiful, beautiful (Name), no matter what you do, even if it’s just taking a breath of air, I find myself falling for you more and more.”
If this man could have heart eyes, he would've had it already.
He throws his closet doors open and grabs half of his closet.. which was all the same yellow ruana.
Which you had blinked at. This man had like fifty of the same ruana.
“It suits you. Here, take half. That way when we go out we can match.” He says as he dumps the clothes in your arms.
“I should get you a pair of my own pants, or my slippers too..”
He’s already had plans of coordinating both of your outfits.
“Yeah you aren’t allowed anywhere now without at least one of my clothes on you. That way you can look cute while people know you're already mine, mi vida.” He winks.
He'd insist you wear it for the duration of your stay there.
He'd pull you in his lap and kiss you all over, all the while murmuring and humming softly at how good you had looked.
As soon as you get home though he's throwing himself on his bed, squealing about how cute you looked.
"Oh dios, thank you for blessing me with them."
He tries to shift into you, of course with his clothes rather than your own.
One look in the mirror and he was jumping in glee, punching the air.
He quickly shifted back to himself, screeching as he couldn't take it anymore. He had you. All to himself.
Man, you gave him a chance.
Him! Of all people!
"Camilo, cállate la boca! Some of us are trying to sleep!" Comes Dolores' muffled and tired voice from the other room.
"Ay, Dolores, let me have this!" Camilo would whine.
Cue him hugging the ruana you had worn.
You had him giggling and kicking his legs and everything all night.

Camilo at Isabela: I’m sorry for teasing you with Mariano, I didn’t know you didn’t actually like him.
Also Camilo when Isabela gets a girlfriend: *rubbing his sneaky little shapeshifting hands*
(He’s only sorry about teasing Isabela with a relationship she wasn’t happy with, he’s totally gonna do it again when Isabela’s in a happy relationship.)
Isabela: Looking left cuz you don’t treat me right
Dolores: Looking right because you left
Mirabel: Looking up cause you let me down
Camilo: Looking down cause you fucked up
Luisa: What is wrong with you guys
I like to think all the cousins do the thing Mirabel did of "That's why you're my favorite _". And sometimes they just stop at favorite, only for another cousin/family member to gasp in indignation. But also they sometimes make it incredibly specific, like, "Wow, and that's why you're my absolute favorite cousin with curly hair and no bow who can shapeshift."
"That's why you're my favorite brother under ten"
"That's why you're my favorite cousin between seventeen and twenty with a red bow."
"That's why you're my favorite sister with long hair, a dress and vines on your arms."
"That's why you're my favorite cousin with an actual skill under the age of forty."
"That's why you're my favorite sister who squeaks and needs to wear a bell because we can never hear you entering a room."
*Everyone is standing around the broken coffee maker*
Bruno: So. Who broke it? I'm not mad, I just wanna know.
Mirabel: ...I did. I broke it.
Bruno: No. No you didn't. Camilo?
Camilo: Don't look at me. Look at Dolores.
Dolores : What?! I didn't break it.
Camilo: Huh, that's weird. How'd you even know it was broken?
Dolores: Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken.
Dolores: No, it's not!
Luisa: If it matters, probably not, but Isabela was the last one to use it.
Isabela: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
Luisa: Oh really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
Isabela: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, Luisa!
Mirabel: Okay let's not fight. I broke it. Let me pay for it, Bruno.
Bruno: No! Who broke it!?
Luisa: Bruno... Antonio's been awfully quiet.
*Everyone starts arguing*
Bruno, being interviewed: I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it.
Bruno: I predict 10 minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick.
Bruno: Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
Dolores: Okay, let’s go over this again. What do we do when something goes wrong?
Antonio: We try to fix it before Mami gets back!
Dolores: And when that doesn’t work?
Antonio: We blame Camilo!
Mirabel, on the verge of panicking: Where are you going?!
Camilo, very calmly: Hell, eventually
Camilo: *shapeshifts in front of mirror* So, Dolores, Isabela, Mirabel, dad, mami, tio Bruno, oh, and this is someone new. Who is this...?
Mirabel: Hi, Camilo...what are you doing?
Camilo: Hi, Mira, I'm trying to remember who I shapeshifted into. Do you know who is it?
Mirabel: Um…you've shapeshifted into yourself...
Camilo: oh… yeah, of course…I..I'm just kidding you *nervous laugh*…shit
Modern!Au where Madrigal cousins create a Tinder profile for Bruno and he doesn’t even know what Tinder is because he doesn’t understand how internet or technologies work so the Madrigal kids are like well don’t worry tío just keep calm and let us manage this. And of course everything is chaotic as hell because every cousin has their own idea and all of them want to manage the situation like:
Camilo is ABSOLUTELY against say Brunos heigh on his bio because “you know girls don’t like short guys’ and also have the most stupid ideas like “he seems younger we can say he’s 40” And Dolores is like “we can’t lie about his age thats super creep” and then Camilo “Mirabel just wrote he loves cats!” so Mirabel defends herself “Cats are cuter than rats on the pictures” Then Luisa added: “Oh, maybe we should mention he lives with his mom?” And everybody: “ABSOLUTELY NOT” And then Isabela just sighs and says: “maybe we should start by getting some photo of him that doesn't look like he hasn't bathed in a month” And of course everybody agrees before she added “And Dolores call Antonio, please. Pictures with children are always a must.”
Harana to Mi Vida II
Will Camilo's efforts pay off? Will (Name) give him her sweet, sweet 'Yes'? Tune in next time to find out! Kidding. This is part 2.
“I love you too much,” Camilo starts out quietly, gazing up at your still closed window as he pursed his lips. “To live without you loving me back..” He cleared his throat quickly, his nerves getting the best of him in the first few lines.
Breathe, Camilo. Breathe. He reminds himself. Think happy thoughts, he tells himself once more as he closes his eyes. You got this. Mirabel had started to worry about her primo, faltering in her strumming to look upon him with concern.
“I love you too much, Heaven’s my witness and this is a fact.” He lets out a chuckle after the line, picturing the times he’s prayed to the miracle for his destiny to be with you or the times he’s begged his Tio Bruno to look into his future to see if you were in it with his Tio only shaking his head in response. “I know I belong, when I sing this song..” His shoulders were still tense but it was clear he was getting used to what would be the performance that would hopefully earn your love. Happy thoughts were with (Name) after all.
Happy thoughts was hanging out with you on Casita’s roof, gazing at the stars that burned in the night sky. Happy thoughts was climbing the mango tree with you and holding your hand while he helped you climb up. Happy thoughts was you, cuddling up to his side during the cold nights where you hung out before he had taken off his ruana to gently place it around your shoulders. Happy thoughts was (Name) and her dazzling smile that would stop his whole world and rid it of motion.
Without you, it felt like all of his mamá’s storms were raining down on him specifically. He never knew life in Encanto without you after all. “There’s love above love and it’s ours cause I love you too much.” He slowly loosens his grasp on the bouquet of flowers that he was holding, more relaxed now. “I live for your touch, I whisper your name night after night..”
And he had. Each night he would whisper your name but instead of your last name, he replaced it with his own. (Name) Madrigal. (Name) Madrigal. It had a nice ring to it, didn’t it? And he would grab onto his pillow and smile like the dork he was, flustered by his own thoughts of you being his bride. All this would be heard by his sister Dolores who would tease him as revenge to the many times he’s informed of Mariano’s arrival with a ‘Dolores, your boyfriend is here!’ though she would mean well, encouraging him after to shoot his shot.
“I love you too much.” As if allowing the whole world to roll off his shoulders, a great weight had been lifted off him as he sang. “There’s only one feeling and I know is right..” He wondered if you could hear him. Though as his eyes fluttered open, it was also the exact time you had gently swung the window shutters open and he swore he felt the air in his lungs leave him.
Even in the moonlight you had looked as radiant as ever.
Upon the coaxing of your parents who had heard the singing from outside, insisting that you take a look yourself, you were greeted by the sight of Camilo and Mirabel. At first you didn’t really get it. Was there trouble with Casita? Though as soon as you saw the flowers and the tiple, it all clicked. Your cheeks warm and just like the shapeshifter, your breath hitching. You attempted to hide behind the white curtains of your room, gazing at the boy who, unbeknownst to him, had also managed to capture your heart like you had with him.
He wished you had kept the windows closed though. Dios mío. Now the nervousness that had slowly melted away from him was coming right back in. It took everything out of the poor boy to keep his powers at bay, knowing damn well he would’ve been shifting all willy nilly if he had let himself do so. He took in another deep breath before he mustered up all his courage to call out your name.
“(Name)!” He shouts your name with all his heart and in a sudden too that Mirabel had no idea whether to keep playing or not. Though she would quickly correct herself, strumming the guitar once more as Camilo sang. Hearing your name being called out by the boy that you had loved since you were a little girl made your heart thump like a thousand beats of a drum.
“I know I belong, when I sing this song,” He sang loudly, pouring his feelings with each and every word that flowed out from his lips. “There’s love above love and it’s ours ‘cause I love you too much.” He looked at you, adoration in those eyes that resembled brewing coffee in a summer’s morning.
“Heaven knows my name, I’ve been praying,” He continued. “To have you right here by my side.” He sang each word with such passion that it made your heart flutter, your cheeks red, and your heart that has already been captured by the shapeshifter, to be caught in the nets of his love even more. “Without you a part of me is missing. Just to make you my own I will fight.” As he said these words, his eyes were filled with determination, a fire inside of them that would burn passionately and you knew he meant every word.
“I know I belong.. when I sing this song..” He murmurs the last lines of the songs in a way that would still be heard by you. “There’s love above love and it’s ours ‘cause I love you too much, mi vida.. Te Quiero!”
He panted as the last of the song’s words left him. Heart threatening to burst out of his chest as he gazed up at you who, joined by your parents, had rushed their way downstairs. As soon as you were face to face with him, he sucked in a breath.
“(Name), mi reina, mi corazón, will you.. will you allow me to court you?” As soon as the question left his lips, a smile made its' way upon your face despite the warmth that still lingered on your cheeks and you answered him, not even hesitating.
“Sí, Camilo!” You threw yourself into his arms, laughing happily as the stunned boy was frozen with surprise before he had picked you up, twirling you around happily as he pressed soft kisses on your face.
“Ay, they can skip the courting stage at this point.” Your mother had muttered with a shake of her head. The joyous couple’s chuckles and happy giggles were accompanied by Mirabel whooping and cheering for her primo.
Somewhere in Casita’s walls, a certain young woman had squealed in happiness along with the Madrigal family who erupted in triumphant yells and happy cries.
“She said yes!”
A.N. The moment you've been waiting for, I hope you guys like it! I've always loved the Book of Life and 'I love you too much' seemed like the perfect song for this one!
Mirabel: *sends a TikTok at 3 am*
Mirabel:….*goes to their room* GO TO BED.
Camilo: YOU GO TO BED.
Headcanon: Camilo would’ve never teased Isabela about her relationship with Mariano if he knew she wasn’t happy dating him. To him it was just regular “smoochy smoochy” teasing siblings/cousins do when the other is in a relationship.
Camilo’s an over-dramatic tease, but he’s not heartless.
Luisa: What if the person who named Walkie Talkies named everything?
Camilo: Pregnancy tests are Maybe Babies
Dolores: Socks are Feetie Heaties
Mirabel: Forks are Stabby Grabbies
Camilo: Defibrillators are Heartie Starties
Dolores: Nightmares are Dreamy Screamies
Mirabel: Stamps are Lickie Stickies
Isabela, annoyed: You’re all disappointments
he annoys the shit outta her for funsies you can’t tell me otherwise
Mirabel: Isabela ... How do I begin to explain Isabela ?
Luisa: Isabela is flawless.
Dolores: I hear her hair's insured for $10,000.
Camilo : I hear she does car commercials... in Japan.
Mariano: One time they punched me in the face... it was awesome.
🎶 I associate him with the sound of falling sand.. 🎶
