A slightly more modern take on the beautiful Madrigal girls🌺 I had to draw them since the characters of Encanto are all so charming!
Which Madrigal do you relate to the most? Mine's Isabela. Being the eldest, golden child of the family who presents in a very feminine way (plus, I'm so happy to find a Disney character who looks like me who has darker skin and long black hair♡)
(also, I gave Luisa a sparkly little unidonkey plushie which is so cute🦄)
Modern! Encanto AU where most everything is the same but their gifts are just a lot less… pronounced.
Townsperson: Those are the Madrigals. They’re kinda weird but we don’t mess with them because they’re weirdly nice.
Mirabel is the most “normal” of them all and it freaks everyone out. She ends up translating the weird most of the time.
Also I’ve decided that the everyone is a bit younger and the kids are a little closer in age. Isabela is about 12, Dolores 11, Luisa 9, Mirabel and Camilo 7ish, and Antonio is still 5. All the adults are age adjusted appropriately.
Modern Madrigal AU
It's an alternative universe where Encanto is set on the modern times (2010s era). Every character still has their powers but the plot is them trying to explore the modern world and tries to get used to it (and it's Modern Family vibes). Not sure if Mirabel has powers in this AU but feel free to suggest some ideas about it. The Headcanons we rant on @incorrectmadrigalfamilyquotes are from this AU. Feel free to draw some sketches and stuff. There are a few rules in this AU if you want to participate. First, no incest ships like please they're Family. Second, no mentions of the pandemic especially if it's just from Bruno's visions, this is set before the pandemic. Third, it's okay to add romance in the AU but except for minor characters like Camilo, Mirabel, and little Tonito. And Lastly, no antagonizing every existing characters, make an O.C. if you want antagonists.
That's all, you can also spread this AU to other social media platforms like TikTok, etc. Tag me if there are interesting arts and headcanons about the AU. Feel free to share some ideas about it by asking me on my inbox or post one on your own. Remember to have fun and everyone is free to have their opinions about this AU.

What computer games would Madrigal family play in modern au?
Abuela probably wouldn’t play anything until Mirabel/Camilo introduced her to Zuma, Minesweeper and other old Microsoft games
AND OF COURSE CANDY CRUSH LIKE GUYS COME ON EVERY ELDER SOMEDAY WILL PLAY CANDY CRUSH SAGA i return to playing gardenscapes once a year so yeah.
Julieta and Agustin would play something like Sudoku and Mariokart(when kids ask to play together) in their free time.
Pepa and Felix like playing moving games! Like Just Dance, Kinect Adventures or Kinect Rush. Moving makes them gaining serotonin(which I don’t understand). Kids often join them:D
Bruno likes retro games like Pac-Man, Tetris, or something else on old console. But sometimes gets invited to play with kids online multiplayer games where he doesn’t understand what to do.
Isabela liked playing dressing games before. Now she plays RPG online and crush 13yo children like a punk she is now
She still plays games where you can decorate clothes and interior with plants.
Dolores likes to play Point & Click games. And escape rooms. She also likes detective games and tries to predict who’s killer
She hates playing multiplayer/online games because it’s annoys her even more due to her gift. And nobody calls her to play Fortnite because she hears where are everyone. But sometimes she likes playing Jackbox with family.
Luisa LOVES to play farming games. Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, all of it. Just relaxing and no hasting
Sometimes she plays multiplayer games with Mira and Camilo, but it often disturbs her even more so. No multiplayering.
Oh yeah. Mirabel and Camilo. Yes. Them. Those 15yo gremlins of the family. You often can hear them yelling at game or each other while playing a game. They play al sorts of online multiplayer games. Dota, LoL, Fortnite, Minecraft, Roblox, Genshin Impact, you call ‘em! But they do want to play with fam’s too. So they call cousins to play multiplayer games. Or host Jackbox games to play with all of the family.
At last, but not least, we have Antonio. He probably not allowed to play computer games that often, but he likes games with animals.
Tonito would always watch how Luisa plays Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing.
Helps Dolores in finding things in Point&Click games.
Likes to makes dresses with Isabela.
Loves to dance with mami Pepa and papi Felix.
Tries to solve Sudokus with tia Julieta and tio Agustin.
Doesn’t understand how Tetris works after many attempts of Bruno trying to explain it, but still likes to watch colorful blocks on tio Bruno’s screen.
And excitedly helps Abuela play Zuma and match those rocks together.
Everyone likes it when Antonio watches them play.
Dolores, texting: Nose
Dolores: I just typed “nose” with my nose :)
Dolores: What the fuck?
Dolores: Bro, are you okay?
7 foot frame and all that...🐀🐀🐀
Waiting on Miracles AU
- 100% a brain dump from when I was sketching, god I have so much going on already -
15 years ago, Bruno lost his eldest sister as her third and smallest child was brought into the world. 15 years ago, Bruno became the surrogate father to three beautiful girls as their true father fell to his grief and couldn’t take care of them anymore. 15 years ago, they formed a little broken family of their own, pulled together by loss, and kept together by a thread.
The move to California from Colombia wasn’t easy, but Bruno couldn’t care for three girls on his own. His own mother was old now and had just lost a daughter, and his middle sister already had a large family of her own to deal with. So he sought the help of his estranged brother Oscar, who lived seemingly an entire world away. And they settled down to live a simple little life in a bustling city far from home.
15 years later, spirited Isabela and responsible Luisa are both in college, and his youngest Mirabel is struggling day by day through her classes. Their bills are piling up, and Bruno’s career as a writer is stale. Only Oscar is keeping them afloat, but for how long? He worries for his little family, worries what might happen if he can’t make ends meet. His eldest’s are adults now, and he trusts them. But Bruno can’t lose Mirabel, his daughter in all but blood.
He isn’t expecting the surprise call from his brother. A call that changes everything.
“Bruno, Hermano! Great news. Remember those tapes you sent in? Mirabel’s tapes? They love her. They want her man - it’s a big studio. A famous studio. Brother of mine, it’s going to be huge. You have to get her down here right now.”
Bruno knew he should’ve been ecstatic. Mira used to dream of singing and acting ever since she could walk. She used to put on shows and write music. She was truly a shining star in his dark little world. But she was struggling so much now. Struggling in school, struggling with herself. And what had he done? Sent in her secret audition tapes behind her back? Bruno sank in his chair and panicked.
What was he going to do now?
Posting it here for posterity’s sake.
This is a localization I made for the threads on snowchan.org
Link to original source in Korean:
Alma: I suppose I have a slight tendency to be a bit critical
Bruno: A bit?
Another way for Mirabel and Abuela's fight:
Alma: of course Isabela is unhappy! You ruined her proposal!
Mirabel: she was unhappy because she didn't want to marry Mariano, and then the cactus appeared-
Alma: oh, come on, if she didn't want to marry him, why didn't she tell me? You clearly are the one who savotaged-
Mirabel: but it's true, she didn't want to marry him! She just didn't tell you to not upset you! And she's not the only one, Luisa couldn't even tell you she felt anxious because of all the work she has to do-
Alma: what are you implying, young lady? That you all keep secrets from me because you are afraid how I would react?
Mirabel: ..... well-
Alma: I know this family better than you, Mirabel! If someone has something that hasn't told me because you were afraid, tell me right now!
Alma: see? I told you I know my-
Agustín: (little voice) actually..... sometimes I think that when we say together "La Familia Madrigal" we sound more like a comando's war cry than a family. It's a little weird.
Alma: .... ok... anyone else has something to say because "you're scared of me"?
Dolores: well, since we're coming clean... I think you... overtalk about the comunity? It's like it's the only thing on your head, and it seems... a little... like you don't think about us at all.
Alma: what?! (starting to get angry) Ok, anyone else?
Camilo: remember last year when I got sick and I couldn't go to the town and do the chores? I wasn't sick, I used my gift to make it look like it.
Julieta: oh! So that's why the soup took so long to act!
Alma: why did you do that, Camilo?!
Camilo: I wanted to sneak behind you to disguise as Isabela to play a prank on Mariano.... it didn't go the way I expected, because he kissed me thinking I was Isabela, and then I just couldn't tell him it was actually me because he was so happy for his very first kiss or something.
Alma: anything else?
Antonio: sometimes when you read to me, I pretend to fall asleep so you'll go.
Modern Madrigal AU:
Camilo: Ask me a question
Mirabel: Is Jay-Z really your favourite artist?
Camilo: Yes obviously
Mirabel: Or is your favourite artist really Taylor Swift?
Camilo being sarcastic: No
Camilo: Alright fine, She is.
Camilo whispering: She makes me feel things
Mirabel: SHE MAKES ALL OF US FEEL THINGS!!!

Camilo: I know. Its called strength

Pepa, Camilo and Mirabel are banned from Ikea.
Kids because they create havoc in every aisle.
Pepa because she didn’t stop them and joined them in kitchen aisle drumming pots and pans.
