this was gonna be a quote but it was far too long and my writer’s side kicked in so fuck iiiiit.
I shall call this, “The Stars Are Pretty”.
Featuring the Madrigal Triplets, Félix, and Agustín, all in their late 20s.
A long time ago, when they were in their late 20s, Bruno, Félix, and Agustín chilled on the ground in the center of Casita and stared up at the stars in the sky. It was partially cloudy, but the clouds would give way to the powerful moon that shined down on them. They had been laying on pillows and blankets brought from Agustín’s home, and just looked at the beauty above them.
“Hey Bruno…” Félix spoke up softly.
“Yeah?” Bruno replied.
“Do you ever think that…you’ll find someone?” Félix asked, somewhat shyly. The three of them had been really close, but it wasn’t something that really came up outside of a joke.
“I doubt it,” Bruno straightforwardly responded. “Everyone thinks I’m some sort of bad omen ever since that girl’s goldfish died.”
“Ugh, the fish…” Agustín rolled his eyes. He couldn’t stand hearing about how Valentina’s goldfish had died because Bruno told her it would, even though she was the one coming to him for a prophecy. “She says it like you put some curse on the thing.”
“She wasn’t taking care of it properly, of course it was gonna die,” Bruno said nonchalantly. “But people just can’t handle the truth, apparently.”
“That isn’t the word,” Félix responded with a light yawn.
“So fellas…you both have been dating a sister of mine for quite some time. Any word of a wedding?” Bruno said jokingly.
“Not yet…” Agustín said sheepishly. “I’m super nervous.”
“Actually…I wanna propose to Pepa tomorrow night…” Félix responded.
Bruno and Agustín looked at him with looks of surprise. Then they started playfully cheering. Félix laughed and playfully told them to fuck off.
“Hey shut up, they’ll be back any minute!” Félix said, laughing.
“They said they’d be back like 30 minutes ago, I’m pretty sure they’re asleep,” Bruno said, chuckling.
Agustín, laughing his ass off, stood up and walked to the stairs. “I’ll go see what’s up.”
Just as he started going upstairs, he heard a door open, and the three turned to the sound. Pepa and Julieta had stepped out of the bathroom adjacent to the kitchen, with Pepa having a look on her face that was as if she was completely drained of her energy. Félix got up and walked over to them.
“Pepi, amor…are you okay?” He asked, holding her shoulders and rubbing them gently. Pepa gave a light smile, but whatever had been bothering her was too strong.
“She’s fine…” Julieta spoke with a slight smile. “She just had a bit of a surprise earlier…”
“Surprise my ass…” Pepa said, causing Julieta to chuckle.
Bruno eyed Agustín with a confused glance. “Is this another kind of girl lingo we’re supposed to understand? Cuz I’m not following…”
“Pepi here had a little accident trying to demonstrate something to me.”
This just confused the guys and worried Félix even more. “What kind of accident? What happened, amor?”
“Nothing happened! Julieta don’t you say a fucking word about it.” Pepa warned, which made Julieta laugh even harder; the little accident had something to do with Pepa demonstrating what she and Félix did the night before. Bruno just shrugged and laid back down, Agustín returned back to his spot, and Pepa was walked over to the makeshift bed by Julieta and Félix. Everyone settled down, with Bruno in the middle of course.
Bruno noticed that Agustín was getting tired. He was holding Julieta close, snuggling at the crook of her neck, and his glasses were being maneuvered onto a desk by Casita. Julieta held him close and kissed his head periodically. All five of them had on some variations of pajamas, none of them were complete sets. Bruno was shirtless but had on pants. Félix wore a shirt, but his shorts didn’t match. Pepa had her hair down and wore the other half of Félix’s pajamas, so in an odd way they were matching. Agustín had on a shirt but took his pants off a while ago. Julieta was wearing his pants over her nightgown, and she too had her hair down. Sometimes when they slept in weird places, they dressed weirdly as well. It was their own little tradition.
After a little while, it was quiet. Agustín indeed fell asleep, and so did Pepa and Julieta. Félix and Bruno stayed up a little longer. Bruno would have got up and asked Félix to join him elsewhere, but Pepa was snuggled up to him so that wasn’t an option. She had an iron grip of Félix, not that he minded given that something had happened earlier. Bruno put his arms behind his head and eventually went to sleep.
Félix was thinking about how he was going about this…would he just get on his knee, would he just sing a song, would he just outright ask?
How weird would that be to go up to her while she’s eating and go, “Pepa, will you marry me?”
He already had her mother’s blessing, of course. She’s always been fond of Félix even before he and Pepa started dating, so when Abuela learned that he had planned on proposing, she was ecstatic. She wanted to help and do something elaborate, but he figured that it would be better to play it safe and do something smaller so she wouldn’t be overwhelmed. However he would do it, he would just be happy to do it. He would be happy to move forward in the steps it took to spend the rest of his life with her.
He looked down at her sleeping form and covered her up some more. She snuggled into him and rested her head against his chest. He smiled and kissed her hair and kept looking up.
The stars were so pretty. And he had the most radiant one drooling on his chest. He couldn’t be happier.
Could I get some Pepa hcs if you don't mind? I love her so muchhh
Oh i adore Pepa as well so i sure don't mind.
Pepa Madrigal Headcanons
Pepa actually doesn't quite understand what emotions trigger certain weather, Aside from thundering being anger and rainbows happiness, Her rain pretty much shows up whenever her eyes are watering and snow and wind she has literally no idea about. It caused her a lot of stress at first but Julietta, Bruno, and Felix eventually got her to be mostly okay with it
She actually was closer to Bruno before he "left", both had very little control of their gift and the townsfolk blamed them when it wasn't convienant for them, Bruno for seeing bad things and Pepa for when she was in a slump giving the Encanto almost week long rainstorms. Since Julietta's gift could literally do no wrong and Alma was emotionally reserved at the time, they bonded over it a lot.
Felix wasn't her first partner, she had quite a few who eventually got sick of her mood swings which of course simply made her mood worse. Felix actually showed up at the casita during one of her slumps completely soaked from the rain simply saying it seemed Pepa could use some cheering up. That was the first time they met.
She doesn't have complete control of the weather, storms and dry spells can still happen on their own, her gift essentially acts as a separate system of weather that can either oppose or assist the natural weather. Making it rain in a dry season or making more rain clouds during a rainy one.
She actually had a really hard time being a comforting mother to Dolores after her ceremony, Involuntary Storm clouds and super hearing don't mix well. Felix or Julietta generally held her when she was upset but Pepa still tried to help.
Will not deal with anyone's nonsense in the morning until she has had her coffee, Girl needs her caffeine.
She will make it snow if the kids want to play in the snow, even if it's in the middle of summer she will make it snow.
Hope you liked these, and thank you for asking I had a lot of fun doing this.
Encanto opinion which Idk if anyone shares but it’s not, like, controversial:
The movie should’ve been longer. that way, we could’ve had individual songs for the cousins, Julieta, Pepa and Bruno himself.
We could’ve explored how the toxicity was hurting everyone, not just the sisters. Like, okay, we see Dolores covering her ears every time there’s loud noise and we see her sad because she loves Mariano but I feel like we could’ve gotten more of her. we got a good amount of Antonio because we see him get his gift and his bond with Mirabel but like... and we got like, NOTHING for Camilo, who is just too good a character to pass up.
Imagine a song called “Masks and Costumes” where Camilo goes into how he’s not sure who he is because he’s always acting like other people and always trying to make other people happy.
Or a song called “Bring Back the Hope” where Antonio sings about how everyone was anxious and pressuring him, making him feel like, if he didn’t get a gift, then the magic would be dead.
A song called “Noise” where Dolores sings about how the voices in her head never shut up and don’t let her sleep. (more foreshadowing for her knowing Bruno is still in the house)
One called “Under the Weather” where Pepa (and Félix, too) sings about how she has to keep her emotions under control for fear of causing hurricanes and stuff.
I don’t have any ideas for Julieta because we don’t get much of her personality, she’s just a normal, good mom. maybe something about how she wants to speak up against Abuela and her mistreatment of Mirabel but can’t muster up the courage to stand up to her mother.
We don’t really need a Bruno song because we know what his struggles are but I think hearing Bruno sing more is just a good thing.
how félix and pepa met
one of the best lines of Encanto
Married in a hurricane (what a joyous day!)
Watch "Encanto But When Pepa Was Pregnant With Dolores (animatic)" on YouTube
I’m not sure if you do requests without the reader but I would like to request a félix and agustín bonding fic like before they got married. like just two dudes vibing and gushing about their girlfriends.
Pair: Félix x Agustín
Genre: fluff and ofc platonic
Summary: Fèlix and Agustín decided to spend a day together, just normal buddies hanging out and gushing about their super amazing girlfriends
"I'll see you later, amor."
As soon as Julieta kissed Agustín goodbye, he started walking away from the casita, until he tripped on a stone. "Mierda! Not again." He hissed to himself.
He is known as the accident prone of Encanto, you can always see him with bruises on his face, his arms, bee stings everywhere, but he's fine with it.
Well sort of..
"Amigo you good?" He looked up from the ground to see Félix handing him his hand, with a grateful smile he accepted his hand and the latter pulled him up. "You always get yourself in a painful situation Agustín!" Félix said with a laugh while shaking his head.
"Ay believe me amigo, it's frustrating." He checked himself to see if he got any scratch from the fall, thankfully he didn't. "By the way, how are you and Pepa? Anything happened lately?" He asked while placing a hand on his shoulder.
The two started walking as Félix tells Agustín every moment with his lovely girlfriend Pepa.
"One time we were at my house reading a very sad story, when it all suddenly rained, i guess she got sad, then i got wet but it was amazing! Every moment with her is." Agustín gave him a slap on the back while grinning widely.
"Ay look at you! So inlove with your Pepa, hmm?" Félix smirked at him, he faced him while crossing his arms.
"As if you're not inlove with thee Julieta Madrigal!" Agustín laughs softly, i swear, if heart eyes were real, that's Agustín's eyes right now while thinking of Julieta.
"I mean, come on.. you of all people should know that our girls are to die for!" As Agustín shouted that, both of them sighed as they thought of their beautiful and amazing girlfriends.
'The luckiest guys in town' is what the townspeople call the two, and boy do they know it.
"So when are you going to pop the question?" Félix asked while wiggling his eyebrows. Agustín and Julieta have been dating for, let's say 3 years now, while he and Pepa are just about to celebrate their 2 years as a couple next month.
"I don't know.. don't you think it's a little early?"
"Amigo! You've been dating for 3 years now! You need to pop the question! Tho if you're not ready i'm not gonna push you. It's up to you anyways." The latter sighed as he heard what Félix said.
"No, you're right. I've been thinking about it, but sometimes it crosses my mind, what if i'm not good enough for Julieta you know? She's a healer! She heals people with their meals! Meanwhile i'm an accident prone." He drops his shoulder in defeat. While Félix shook his head and heald his friends shoulder straightens him up.
"Listen to me Agustín! You are worthy of Julieta! Repeat after me! I, Agustín."
"Of Julieta Madrigal!"
"Of Julieta Madrigal!"
He claps him on the back while smiling proudly.
"Erm, what are you two doing?" The two of them got startled when they heard a voice, they turn around to see the youngest madrigal, Bruno.
"I was just hyping my man up. Uhm you need something?"
"Yeah, Mamá called the two of you, she wants you to join us for dinner." He said with a smile, Agustín turns to look at Félix and he was already smiling at him.
"All right then!"
The three walked to la casa madrigal, with Agustín feeling a little more confident and Félix just can't wait to see his Pepa again.
All done for our greatest husband and father of disney!
Can we please take a moment to realize Pepa and Félix are without question THE most affectionate Disney couple?
Let’s think about this for a second. The main romances are never together until the last scene, and their touches are limited to one or two kisses, and a short happily ever after montage where maybe he has his arm around her waist as they ride off into the sunset (every single Disney princess sans Nala and Belle). They’ll talk and laugh but they won’t ever actually touch or if they do it’s limited to maybe brushing hair back or touching them only when necessary to save them but that’s it. Every physical touch is all big grand romantic gestures that stand out and help move the plot along.
Belle and Beast, she ‘didn’t shudder as she touched his paw’ and then they have one romantic dance where her resting her head on his chest was the most physicality any Disney couple had in a while but again, it was a big romantic gesture designed to be noticed and move the plot along. They don’t touch just to touch. And even Nala almost every touch she had with Simba was deliberate and meant to be noticed and to move the romantic plot along (I don’t know about you but I think Pepa and Félix might have take the spot away from Nala and Simba for best Disney sex eyes)
The rare times there’s more than once romance in a movie it’s limited to what Augustin and Julieta have. A gentle simmering of sweet romance and that’s it. We hear they’re married, they may hold one another close at the end of the movie but again, very little actual physical affection.
Now let’s look at Pepa and Félix. There very first intro she’s literally grabbing him, yanking him close and lifting him up off his feet to kiss him
Then his hand is around her waist and stays that way the entire time they walk up the stairs after their first scene. No big grand gesture, no plot development, just a background note you might not even catch. Then with Antonio’s gift ceremony he takes her by the shoulders and doesn’t let go, and when they’re waiting at the door they’re completely wrapped around one another and when he gets his gift again, just a background moment, but he misses her hand and she looks at him with sheer relief and adoration
And let’s not forget the ‘fuck me’ eyes she gives him at breakfast when he gets her to calm down about the chair
During the Bruno song I can’t even count how many times his hand is around her waist and the calling card to all Pepa/Félix shippers that is ‘I’m sorry Mi Vida go onnnn!’ Where he’s singing right into her ear and neck and she’s got *that* kind of smile on her face as she dies which is as close as Disney will ever get to a couple necking
While I mentioned Disney romances only touching eachother to save the other I think theirs should count bc again, it’s just a background moment, not plot development, but when the house shakes and she falls he’s right there to catch her and help her. No plot, no big gesture, it’s not the focus of the scene… it’s just there
And then during the end song…. My god. When Bruno whips her around his hand is right there to catch her and then he pulls her close where once again , she gives him bedroom eyes, his hand is on her waist and hers is on his chest.
Also what’s even more miraculous and remarkable about it is this isn’t the star, this isn’t some 18 year old Disney princess, this is a 50 year old woman with three kids whose oldest is an adult herself, and Félix is a dark skinned Black man who is affectionate and loving and adoring, something you very rarely see in mainstream media. And what’s more is none of these moments are played for laughs. It’s straight and serious and romantic and physical and so amazing. Disney really broke the mold with them and I’m so grateful to them for it
Félix Madrigal is 1000000000% the type of dad who would wear matching earmuffs with Dolores when she has to wear them for sound deprivation so she doesn't feel uncomfortable dont @ me.
If you’re fine with going to see the movie, then yeah, because honestly Pepa and her family would be a interesting set of platonic yanderes imo lol
Yandere Madrigals (Platonic Headcanons)
TW: Emotional Manipulation, Toxic Mindsets.
A.N. - I wasn't sure how much of the family you wanted, so I did all of them at once.
A silent war is waged in Casa Madrigal, and the entire town of Encanto has a stake in it. When the skies darken and pouring rain arrives in gusts of howling winds courtesy of Pepa, every citizen reaps the consequences of the family having an argument with or a disagreement over their friend. Each member has a unique idea of how best to treat their friend, which breeds an endless amount of petty conflict but also a powerful sense of unity.
As the perceived golden child, Isabela expects to be the centre of their attention. She attempts to dazzle them by blooming rows of the flowers she has been told are beautiful and praised for growing, and if this fails to win their everlasting admiration, Isabela is at a loss for what to do. For much of her life, her chlorokinesis was hailed as her best quality, leaving seeds of envy to sprout when their friend is impressed by another member of the family.
In addition to her own insecurities, Isabela encounters great competition in the form of her cousins. None of these threats are greater than Camilo, who is rich with a need for attention and is determined to steal the title of their friend's favourite Madrigal. Camilo shapeshifts into random civilians on the street, important people in their friend's life and their preferred member of the family if not himself – all to interact with them a little longer and, in his mind, build a rapport with them.
Luisa is not as hungry for attention as her cousins and older sister, but she does have a robust want to be seen as useful to their friend. She refrains from intruding on their engagements with other members of the family and instead waits for them to seek out her, asking for any tasks and chores that she can do for them every time they meet. Luisa measures her worth by how much stress she lifts off their friend and encourages them to transfer the smallest and most insignificant duties to her if she has not helped them for a while.
Before Bruno is accepted back into the family, he goes unnoticed by their friend until Dolores enlightens them or they catch him raiding the kitchen in the dead of night during a sleepover. Bruno fears the wrath of Alma and resigns himself to speaking with them through tunnels in the walls, sometimes trying to persuade them to visit his hideout. Antonio is informed of this via his nocturnal animals and Bruno's rats, but the kid is happy to keep it secret as long as he can come with their friend and receive extra time with them later.
As a magic-less individual in a household full of supernatural abilities, Mirabel struggles to retain a presence in their friend's day. Among her family's nonstop ventures to enthrall them with superhuman feats, she feels that anything she can offer is doomed to be inferior to the gardens, rainbows and heavy lifting. This does not deter her from trying, however, and Mirabel seeks to claim her piece of their attention by rushing to talk to them and bring them to the privacy of the nursery when a family member steps away.
Regardless of how much their friend tries to keep their private life to themselves, Dolores hears each thought mumbled in secrecy and every twinge of fear and discomfort that sneaks into a laugh or step. She is quite loose-lipped when it pertains to secrets and wastes no time recounting everything she learned to the eager ears of her family. As a means of vengeance whenever someone interrupts her time with their friend, Dolores withholds information and tells her other relatives not to keep the offending member updated with the latest news until either she forgives them or they apologize to her.
Mirabel and Antonio shed doubt on the fairness of this process, and while she does not approve of its underhanded nature, Alma deems it a necessary invasion to ensure their safety. As far as Agustín and Félix are concerned, eavesdropping is a silly byproduct of joining the Madrigals because their friend might as well be a member of the family. Julieta and her motherly instincts support Alma when she encourages their friend to move into Casa Madrigal, citing it as a way to provide them with the happiest life possible.
After he is accepted back into the family, Bruno lives in constant fear of giving their friend one too many negative prophecies and losing their companionship forever. He wishes to only share the good news, but the thought of them facing a hardship unprepared when he could have warned them drives him to track down their whereabouts and deliver the brutal truth. Whether Bruno slips up or Dolores overhears him, knowledge of the adverse prophecy flows back to the rest of the family and causes an uproar at dinner.
Alma leads the discussion, with Julieta and Pepa throwing in the odd comment here and there. Agustín and Félix are the jokesters of the group and fail to understand why the situation has to be so tense, aiming to keep the room stable with humour. Isabela casts hidden glares and the occasional snide remark at whoever she thinks their friend prefers to her. Dolores exposes her, and Isabela's denial leads to Pepa succumbing to the emotional chaos and summoning a storm.
Camilo seizes the opportunity to mock and impersonate whichever family member he views as his biggest competitor. Luisa is crying about how she has supposedly disappointed their friend, while Mirabel comforts her and tries to keep a foothold in the conversation at the same time. Antonio is an anxious observer for most of the event and excuses himself to play with his animals far from the dining room.
Just as it seems like the discussion cannot be salvaged, Bruno stumbles out of a hole in the wall – sand in his mouth and a rat in his hand. He lies and announces a second prophecy that negates the first. It is a desperate ploy to ease the tempers and fears of his family, and if the real prophecy comes to pass, Bruno suggests a way to fight it but paints the suggestion as a forgotten detail of his vision to preserve his innocence.

Pepa: *dancing in the hail*
Félix: YES, PEPI! WORK IT!
Pepa: Come dance with me, amor!
Félix: Nah, I don’t wanna steal your thunder, sunshine!
Shout out to Tía Pepa who:
1. Is a light skinned white passing latina in an animated movie made by yankees. Not a lot of light skinned white passing latinos in movies like these. The only other one I can think of is Angie Diaz (Marco's mom from Star vs the forces of evil).
2. She's 50 and she has a 5 year old son so the math tells me she got pregnant at 44, which is badass. Getting pregnant at all is badass but like, most women at 44 are going through menopause and shit.
3. Is just really funny and expressive and her design and everything, she's sooooooo cool.
4. Having just the best relationship with her husband. I love watching them dance during We Don't Talk About Bruno. (Also, Félix took her last name, which is just a YES)
I spent way too long on this but anything for my darling

You were sitting down on the grass in antonio's room as you watched the brown-skinned toddler play with his tiger who was twice his size while you had about ten small animals in your lap, this has become sort of a routine for you and antonio, you would watch antonio in casita everyday because he was only five so what chores would he even do and he couldn't exactly watch himself while his whole family was doing chores and you were happy to babysit for pepa and félix "Hi y/n." A voice said coming from antonio's doorway making both of you turn your heads to see pepa standing there holding a crate of stuff which is most likely the chore she's currently doing with a sun over her head most likely because of you and antonio being 'adorable' in her words.
"Hey pepa!" You said smiling as you rubbed one of the ferret's while antonio waved at his mother "Me and félix were wondering if you wanted to come over for dinner tonight, we think that you would get along greatly with antonio's hermano." She said as she struggled to hold the large crate but you stood up and grabbed it from her hands letting her taking a small rest "Mhm..sure! I'll be there." You said smiling and pepa smiled brighter showing her tooth gap "Great! I need to get going so I'll take that back." She said grabbing the crate but before going she told you when to be there "At 8 pm okay?" She said and you nodded before she left to go fulfill the chore she had in her hands.
You went back to antonio and the animals climbed back on you "So...antonio, you have a hermano and you didn't tell me? I'm so hurt.." You said dramatically as you picked him off the tiger and he smiled "Well, I didn't think it was important." He said as you hugged him making him laugh "I thought there was no secrets between us, important or not!" You said as you tickled the brown-skinned toddler showing that you weren't really mad at him and that you were just joking "We've only known each other for about four weeks!" Antonio yelled as you stopped tickling him "Yeah but i'm still your best friend though." You said cuddling him as the animals climbed on the fabric of your dress.
~At 8 pm~
You were walking through town holding the end of your dress off the ground for it not to get dirty as you had worn it just for this special dinner as you were having dinner with the madrigals, the very people who built encanto and gave you a place to call home so you wanted to be presentable for them even though pepa had told you that you didn't need to dress in anything special "Mhm...I wonder what antonio's hermano is like for pepa to say we might get along?" You mumbled as you walked up to casita and stood in front of the door but before you could even knock, the door opened by themselves revealing antonio standing there waiting for you then he smiled and grabbed your hand "Come on! Everyone's waiting for you." He said as he dragged you towards the table where everyone was sitting with their plates.
You went to the empty seat in between félix and this boy who looked like pepa, félix and antonio and the seat was filled with animals "I told them to warm up your seat." Antonio said sitting in his seat smiling at you making you smile softly and sit down "So, you must be antonio's babysitter?" The boy next to you said making you look at him then it hit you.
Antonio's hermano was camilo! Sure you knew the family but you didn't really pay attention like a fangirl or something and you never really saw camilo's real form anyway because whenever you did he was in another form so you couldn't really tell it was him "Oh yeah, I'm y/n l/n." You said smiling at him "Camilo." He said smiling along with you "Hello, I'm dolores!" Dolores said smiling at you as she tilted her body to see you over her brother's body and you smiled at her "Hello!" You said smiling a bit brighter.
After getting introduced to everyone even though you knew them but they didn't know you, you were eating julieta's arepa's and you were practically dying because of how good they tasted "Julieta, these are so delicous!" You said as you cupped your cheek with your hand while you munched on the colombian dish with a closed eye smile on your face, camilo didn't know what was so cute about you but it was sure as hell making him flustered and feel good inside.
Maybe, it was the warm feeling you brought to his heart when you smiled or maybe it was your clothing style that attracted him because your dress was cute though whatever it was, it sure made camilo stare at you and ignore everything else that was going on "Camilo~You're staring at them.." Dolores whispered in camilo's ear making him flustered and he snapped out of his gaze and started eating "Stop teasing me.." He mumbled towards his sister as he occasionally glanced at you to make sure you don't hear him and dolores.
Dolores poked his cheek "You totally have a crush on them." She whispered in his ear before going back to her own food, camilo was still eating but what dolores said made him think 'Maybe, I am crushing on them...' He thought as he raised his head and looked at you who was talking to his mami.
Pepa: HELP! I'D TOLD FÉLIX I'D COOK DINNER TONIGHT BUT I CAN'T COOK!
Bruno, pouring milk directly into the cereal bag: And you thought I cloud help?

Prompt: Two anons had a very similar request so I merged them into one! I hope you guys enjoy it!
While most people were not aware of it, a fact you occasionally took pride in, you still were very much an anxious person. It was not as bad as some of the Madrigal family members had it, especially not as bad as Tío Bruno or Tía Pepa. Nonetheless, sometimes you just felt this unsettling feeling spread through your body. On most days, you were able to hide it pretty well. In fact, not even your parents noticed the signs. But on the bad days, the ones you do not want to talk about, you just made a hasty excuse of having to do something important and hid away.
Today was such a bad day, but for the first time you were unable to hide away, because today was the birthday of your best friend Mirabel. There was no way you could miss the celebration and not stand out as a horrible friend for it. At the same time, the mere thought of being surrounded by so many people made you feel nauseated. Trying your best, you attempted to calm your rapid breath without causing a scene. As much as you loved your friend and her family, being around them all in a small space often made you worry. There was so much raw power isolated in this one tiny area… who knows what could happen?! The mere thought of the potential impending doom made you to lose track of your breathing exercise, causing you to inhale sharply.
Thankfully, no one around you seemed to notice, everyone too focused on celebrating the 16th birthday of the miracle that is Mirabel. Without her, the family would have been lost, broken apart like their home once was. If anyone asked you, you would say that her gift was reuniting people. As awkward as she was, she always tried to make everyone feel happy and loved.
Your friendship started with you experiencing his fact firsthand. Looking back, it was silly how the two of you became this tight of friends based on such a small moment.
All the children in the village were playing a giant round of hide-and-seek, and the loser had to perform a dare, something that to you back then was insanely scary. The loser had to enter the church in town all by themselves in the middle of the night. This was, of course, forbidden given the fact that even the Pastor needed to rest. Those “brave” souls who had wandered into the for you ancient looking building talked of terrifying ghosts haunting the place. Back then, the mere thought gave you nightmares. If there was something you hated, even to this day, it was the dark. Who knew what was lingering out there… waiting for you to make one mistake?!
Most children knew of your fear, and the seeker made it their mission to find you first. Children could be cruel, and this one boy had a vendetta against you just because you beat him in a test at school.
Knowing this, finding the perfect hiding spot was hard. Even harder was it to find one that was not pitch black. And just as you were about to be found, still not hidden away but in broad daylight, a small pair of hands pulled you into a bundle of hay. It was then that you realized that your reaction to pure panic was to freeze as not a single sound left your mouth.
Luckily, it was not the bogyman trying to steal your soul, but the youngest Madrigal daughter pulling you into her hiding spot. Without her, the neighborhood boy would have surely found you but this way, you won the round as none of them could find either of you!
This silly moment, in which Mirabel helped you out of pure goodness, was the reason why the two of you became the best of friends. Inseparable in fact, to a point where when she did not receive a gift you were by her side, cheering her up to your best ability.
So now it was of course expected of you to be present during this glamorously big celebration. A party that the whole town was attending… You knew if you had told her about your condition, she would’ve helped you escape and constantly apologize for not realizing your discomfort. But you simply could not do this to her! She deserved to feel wonderful on this special day! Instead, you decided to just suck it up and try to ignore your racing heartbeat or the fact that you were beginning to sweat.
However, one person was aware of your anxiety, Mirabel’s cousin Camilo. The trickster was very much aware of the telltale signs of someone with anxiety, given the fact that his Mamá was pretty much the epitome of an anxiety attack about to happen. He also knew just how to help her out, calm her nerves and stop the bad weather that she was causing due to it.
He didn’t care if anyone called him a Mama’s boy. So, what! He loved his mother! His whole family! It doesn’t mean he cannot play pranks on them, that’s just how he shows it. Camilo was however very much aware that not every person needed the same help with their anxiety attacks. Everyone was unique in that sense, and it was not something he could simply copy like their appearance.
Completely lost in your thoughts, you did not notice the shapeshifter casually making his way towards to you. No one would notice if he was not around for a while.
Knowing that you were not aware of your surroundings, Camilo cleared his throat as to not scare you.
“Soooo~, [Y/N]. Care to help me get some more snacks for the party? Can’t carry it al by myself”, he said with a small grin on his face. All he knew was the fact that he needed to get you out of this room. This way, you could relax a bit, and he could cheer you up without anyone noticing.
Ripped out of your mind by the noise, you looked at the curly haired boy. You knew Camilo well, he often accompanied you and Mirabel when you were younger.
In fact, you once told Mirabel in private that you kind of liked her cousin. At first, she looked disgusted, asking why of all people her cousin. But then she started to tease you, saying things like you would make a lovely couple. Which is why you tried to avoid being around her when he was near. No need to make her tease you anymore! What if he heard of it?! The trickster would surely mock you forever thinking he would like you… or worse… what if he had pity on you?! So, you made sure that none one, but Mirabel – and Dolores – knew and hid your feelings away.
Unable to speak without making it obvious how anxious you were, you simply nodded, following him out of the room into the hallway. Unaware of your surroundings, you blindly followed the older boy through the hallway, gently holding on to the back of his ruana. It was so dark in the hallway that you could barely see Camilo in front of you. Why he did not turn on the light made no sense to you, but you just assumed that he knew his way around regardless of any light.
It was only when you noticed that you were walking upstairs, not downstairs to the kitchen, that you knew something was up.
“C-... Camilo? Where are you taking me?”, you asked, still walking right behind Mirabel older cousin.
“It’s a surprise”, he simply said in a sing-song voice before adding, “don’t worry though. It’s a nice one”. As he pulled the ladder to the attic down, your heart was pretty much racing. Where was he taking you? Was it a surprise party that Mirabel would join soon?
Carefully walking up right behind him, you entered the dusty and forgotten room. It was so dark up there, you could not see your own hand in front of your face. Pure fear was spreading through your body, shaking heavily, until the curly haired boy turned on a small light. It was only then that he realized your phobia. Instantly, his expression changed from chirpy into one of worry.
“I like to hide here all the time… I guess it isn’t a place for you tho, hm? How bout we do this then!”, he whisper-shouted, trying to give it some secrecy as he opened a side-window of the attic, crawling out of it.
The pure shock of him jumping, or so it looked like to you, out of the window caused you to run to the window, trying to save him. It wasn’t until you had already screamed his name, your hand trying to grab his ruana, that you noticed he was in fact crawling up the roof…
“Sorry [Nickname], did not mean to scare you. Just thought some fresh air might be nice”, he replied, clearly sorry for the scare, before he pulled you out of the window onto the roof with him. There was a small spot with some sort of railing around it, stopping either of you from falling down. However, you could barely focus on it as your heart was now racing for multiple reasons. But one reason was missing, your anxiety. Instead, you were just nervous, being alone with your crush… on a roof! Name a more secluded place, you thought.
Meanwhile, an oblivious Camilo leaned back against the roof looking up at the stars. “I know about your anxiety… you remind me of Mamá with it”, the way he spoke was blunt, yet it did not feel hurtful. “Mamá always needs a cup of tea to calm her nerves but with you, … with you, I thought some fresh air and alone time would be better.”, Camilo explained, now looking at you. “Was I right?”.
Following his suit, you too leaned against the roof but instead of looking at him, your eyes for focused on the night sky above you. It was beautiful. The moon and the stars shining so brightly that no light was needed to see clearly.
“Yeah… I just-…. I didn’t want to ruin Mirabel’s birthday, so I did not want to leave…. But thank you… for helping me”, your voice sounded weak as you took your first deep breaths in what felt like hours. Once the fear had completely left your body, you finally noticed the cold air around you. Your dress clearly wasn’t made for this kind of weather. You were not aware that you were already shaking from the cold weather until you felt a soft fabric being draped over you. Staring at it, you realized it was his golden ruana.
“Aren’t you going to be cold?”, you asked, your cheeks practically on fire.
“Don’t sweat it. I am always hot-… I mean warm”, he replied, at first cocky but quickly turning shy himself.
However, you did not believe a single word he said. You could see that he was shaking as well, after all it was the coldest night of the year so far. Maybe it was a sudden spurt of confidence, or maybe it was just the fact that you worried about him and his well-being. Regardless the reasoning, it was you that pulled the curly haired boy into a hug.
“This way we can share the warmth”, you stammered, not looking him in the face. There was no way you would admit it out loud, at least not right now, but it just felt right. At first, he was as rigid as a stick, as shocked by your action as you were, but soon after he relaxed into the hug. Gently, he pulled you closer to him, causing you to rest your head on his chest.
For a long time, the two of you just rested like this, you hearing his heartbeat underneath you while he softly stroked over your back. It was as if the two of you were always this close… it just felt like it was meant to be this way. It wasn’t until you guys heard his mother call for him that the two of you looked at one another. Both of you had a healthy glow on your cheeks, as you still were in a tight embrace. Quickly, the older boy got up, ready to leave his hideout.
“[Y/N], … do you wanna, maybe hang out together again some time?”, he asked as he let go of you, ready to help you into the window.
“Y-Yeah… I would love to”, you replied, holding onto his hand as you were carefully into the attic.
It was only when you were already halfway down the ladder that he pulled your face up to his, gently placing a kiss on your cheek. The pure shock, although a pleasant one, caused you to nearly fall down the rest of the way, if it were not for Félix catching you.
Quickly their son followed you down, trying to play it cool. However, the two of you very much forgot the fact that you were wearing his ruana. It was like a flashy sign saying Something happened between the two of you, and his parents weren’t oblivious enough to overlook it.
Before they could even start the teasing, you quickly pulled the yellow ruana over your head, throwing it into his arms.
“I’ll see you tomorrow, Camilo!”, you shouted, running out of the house with bright red cheeks, excited about the following day but smart enough not be part of that talk. As he watched you run off into the night, Camilo was holding on to his ruana. The soft smell of your perfume was still lingering on it, causing him to smile, all besotted.
“We will talk about this later, Camilito! Hurry up now, Mirabel is waiting”, his mother said, happy that her son had found someone special. The interrogation could wait until later.
hey girlie 💪🏽😼 i would like to request Yandere Madrigals where their darling calls THEM darling (can't decide whether platonic or not so you decide)
Their S/O Calling them Darling:
Leaving Alma and Antonio out because they're only Platonic for me, and Antonio is 5
Julieta & Agustín:
Julieta gets flustered
And once she gets over it, she's showering you in kisses
Agustín on the other hands looses all of his balance and d i e s-
Not really but you get my point-
He fucking loves it, and you have him getting out of the palm of your hand
Pepa & Félix:
"I made a rainbow! :D"
Yes, Yes you did Pepa-
It makes her really happy, so good job-
Gonna love hearing it each and every time you call her it-
Félix gets a bit bashful but then flirts back a bit
You call him darling, he's gonna say something else to make you more Flustered
J u s t f u c k i n g d i e s
He never expected it so it's just Bruno.Exe has stopped working
Loves it tho-
Keep calling him it, and you'll have the upper hand
Broski l i v e s f o r i t
I mean, she loves any sort of praise or compliment you give her
But calling her Darling and she goes wild-
Flowers blooming in her hair as it was unexpected
Is now expecting you to call her it more often now
Forget Isabela being her name, Now she is only Darling to you
Has to back track a bit-
You called her w h a t ?
Another one is dead because of it-
Gets flustered about it and then you get trapped inside a hug
Call her it more often, she loves it and you get the upper hand
Gets all bashful, and then showers you with kisses and gifts
Keep calling her it plz-
She absolutely loves it and it just makes her happy-
Definitely makes her feel Superior then everyone when you do
Lives for it
Gets kinda flustered about it
You start to call her darling when you know she's listening into you just to mess with her
Expects to be called Darling more often now
Shifting of the shapes
Gets caught off guard the first time-
He gets sudden energy and superiority from it
But tbh if you call him any sweet petname, He's gonna feel awesome about it
How the Madrigals Would React to Seeing You in Encanto for the First Time - Pt. 2
The Madrigals x gn!Reader
Fluff - Romantic
[Word Count: 1,028]
The Madrigals are used to seeing most citizens of Encanto frequently, so it's always a shock when they see someone new. They just weren't expecting for that person to be so stunning.
- This is part 2 to my previous Encanto fic! I planned on writing/posting this tomorrow but that post unexpectedly blew up so here you go I guess! Also pretend that Félix and Agustín are still part of the Madrigal family even if they're not technically married. -
Julieta, Pepa, Bruno, Félix, and Agustín included
You had probably gotten injured while exploring the new territory, falling down a hill and spraining your ankle
The townsfolk led you to Julieta’s stand and brought you into the line, explaining that Madrigal gift is to heal a wound with the food that she makes
She worked her way down the line as she always did, smiling at her customers as she watched their wounds magically heal
When you came up though, she faltered
Even while you were explaining your injury, your eyes were practically glowing, and the smile that you sent her was warmer than any arepa she could make
She was overjoyed when she saw how your expression lit up as you felt your ankle right itself
Much to her delight, you stuck around after you were healed, helping her hand out her baked goods and making comfortable conversation as you did so
Julieta felt something for you that she hadn’t felt in a long time, and she never wanted that feeling to fade
Pepa walked the slick streets of Encanto mindlessly, the occasional rumble of thunder only making her mood worse. Today was a rainy day to begin with, and thundering would not make that any better
Most Encanto citizens were inside of their homes, but there were a few cold-prone kids running about, splashing in the puddles and laughing despite the thunderstorms threatening the sky
She rounded a corner and suddenly felt her entire brain go numb as she saw you there, spinning in the middle of the street with a smile on your face and rain in your hair
Your clothes were soaked, but you didn’t seem to care, and you practically cheered with each thunder clap
Pepa couldn’t help it - she felt the rain start to subside, replaced by a giant rainbow that stretched from the top of your head over the mountains of Encanto
When you looked back at her, the clouds disappeared, and the sun shone brighter than before
As people flooded into the roads around you two, you couldn’t stop staring at one another. It felt like a strong pulling, an invisible line that drew you two closer until you were just a few feet apart, close enough to finally introduce yourselves
Your relationship came easily from there, and from that day on you two were practically inseparable
Even after Bruno’s return, when you entered Encanto you heard poor word about him (old habits die hard)
Despite being told to keep your distance from the prophecy-teller, when you saw him walking amongst the rest of his family, you couldn’t deny that your interest was piqued
Bruno was the exact same way
He saw you sitting along the streets with a woman holding a wicker basket in her hands, laughing and telling stories, and froze dead in his tracks
All it took was a reciprocated look from you and it was over for him
Bruno stuttered even though he didn’t have to say anything, his mouth opening and closing rapidly as he struggled to find the right words
You offered him a small smile and quirked your head, patiently waiting for him to finish, which never happens
Bruno shouted “HI” from across the street and scampered off, already melting in a pool of his own embarrassment
The next day, he returned to town, trying to forget about the stunning person he saw down that very street the day before
But alas, you were there once more, this time waiting for him in particular
Once you manage to catch Bruno for long enough to hold a conversation, (he kept running off) he began to relax more
Bruno realized that the two of you actually have a lot in common, and that he enjoys talking to you almost as much as he enjoys talking with his rats
You two met up there for another month, like clockwork, before Bruno gathered up the courage to invite you to dinner with the Madrigals
Félix just loves to help out around Encanto, which is exactly what he was doing when he first met you
You were dancing with a little girl, both of you spinning and giggling like no one was watching
Félix immediately abandoned his post watering some porch flowers and practically skipped over to you, bowing and extending a hand before asking for a dance
Needless to say, you were charmed, and of course accepted his offer
The girl watched and clapped as you two spun and dipped, moving all about the tiled town square
When you were both finished dancing to imaginary music, Félix offered for you to attend a dinner with his family, per his invitation
You hesitated, but when you saw the pure hope and joy on that man’s face, you couldn’t resist agreeing
The poor guy is so accident-prone, you probably met under terribly poor circumstances
Agustín tripped over a loose board that was being used in the construction of a new house - your house - and fell right at your feet, falling nose-first on the solid ground
When he rolled onto his back and was met with your striking eyes, all of the pain he felt melted away
His mouth fell open as he stared, blinking a few times to snap back into reality once he realized you were trying to talk to him
You took off from helping with building your new home to walk Agustín to Julieta’s arepa stand, waiting patiently in line with him until it was his turn
Agustín then walked you back to your house, tripping a few times along the way but always being caught by you, which makes him flustered and start tripping more just out of embarrassment
He doesn’t feel ashamed around you, though, like how he does with some other people. There are lots of Encanto citizens that mock him for his clumsiness, but you never do - you help him through it and don’t say another word
Agustín fell hard and fast, and from that day onward he tried his hardest to “accidentally” fall in front of you again, even if it’s just to see your smile and hear you ask if he’s alright
i really think that after Casita was rebuilt, Abuela stopped wearing her hair in the hairstyle we saw for most of the movie and went back to her braids to represent her letting go of the need to be perfect
How do you think yandere madrigals would react if they saw someone bully the reader? (It could Julieta youngest daughter/child like 9-10 years old)
P.s- loved your first work it was amazing!!
Madrigal Adults reacting to someone bullying the reader
Note: Thank you so much, that means the world to me! And I will be only doing the Madrigal adults because keep in mind anon, there are other requests, so I hope you understand that😊
Yandere Madrigals x Child! Reader (Platonic!)
Type: Yandere, Platonic and Headcanons
Julieta and Agustín Madrigal
Someone bullying their youngest daughter? The ones responsible will not get away with it.
Julieta will make poisoned arepas for the ones who are responsible, and Agustín will threaten the hell out of them, and Julieta will give the poison arepas to them as a sign of "Sorry" for her husband’s actions.
They wouldn’t let anyone get away if they did something bad to their daughter.
The bullies have also been reported missing.
Pepa and Fèlix Madrigal
Trust me, when they found out you were being bullied, Pepa had a hurricane.
Félix was calming her down and believe me, he was absolutely enraged.
Who would wanna hate their adorable sobrina?
Félix and Pepa made plans for the responsible one, and they were never seen again.
Hold up, hold up! Someone is bullying his second youngest sobrina? Unacceptable!
Bruno will immediately go to his vision cave and have a vision of the one who is responsible.
If they have a good future, Bruno will do everything in his power to destroy that good future.
If they have a bad future, he will make it worse.
He just cares about you so much🥺
Thank you for reading!
