Mini essay about hugs below cut

After seeing the movie three times, I’m pretty darn sure Miguel and

Héctor

are big huggers. Miguel especially.

In spite of the main conflict with his family, Miguel is still very affectionate with them, and hugs are his go-to reaction when he’s upset or scared. When he first gets pulled to the land of the dead and sees his parents, he runs towards them with his arms open wide (only to sadly phase through). When he finally meets his “great-great-grandpa” Ernesto he hugs him twice, first as an initial reaction and second once he’s on Cruz’s shoulders. He immediately hugs

Héctor

when they’re reunited, in spite of only just meeting him that night and them not parting on the best of terms. Similarly, he hugs Imelda after they’re out of danger, even though she had tried to force him to give up music the last time they spoke. He hugs his relatives after Pepita rescues him again. He hugs his papa when he feels all hope is lost, and he hugs Mama Coco for remembering her papa.:)

I’m not super familiar with the manners of Latin American culture, but I believe that closer physical proximity and touching on the arm or shoulder is more the norm than elsewhere. It’s probably not as big of a deal, then, but Miguel is pretty comfortable with

Héctor’s  shoulder-touching and close proximity for most of the night. I like to think that’s another point for him being more of a touch-affection type. :>

Héctor doesn’t do too much hugging in the main story, but like I just said, he does a lot of casual touching with Miguel. Mostly the hands on shoulders thing, but also moments like lifting him up during the Poco Loco performance or touching his cheek during the climax (;-;). Of course the best moment is in the sinkhole when Miguel’s in a state of panicked despair and Héctor just hugs the kid (even though at the time he still thought of him as Ernesto’s grandson and still had every reason to be upset with him over their current situation. but he didn’t because he’s a good boy). 

Outside of the main story, I still think Héctor was very affectionate, at least with his family. Even though he did leave them to go on tour (with much prodding from Ernesto, I imagine), he was a very loving dad and I imagine he gave his wife and daughter a lot of hugs and kisses when he was with them. Even more so after the main plot, since at that point he has spent almost a century without them and knows that they are absolutely the most important thing in his life now (lol but he’s dead haha anyway).

So…yeah. if (when) 

Héctor and Miguel meet again, I imagine there will be many hugs.

“Te quiero, Papa Héctor.”

“…Te quiero, m’ijo.”

Because obviously what I need right now is another tragic story about another tragic kid.

Heartbound is a story about a sad boy wanting his happy dog back.

I picked up Fire Emblem Heroes again (because phone games are a WONDERFUL use of time). One of my teams has Camilla and Nino on it. And considering Nino is the cutest thing in the history of ever I can’t not imagine Camilla smothering her with affection.

Tryin’ real hard to draw again, guys. o-o;

I don’t know if Mob’s just stressed out in general or they’re coming back from a rough case. 

There’re actually a couple of LPers that I find therapeutic just listening to them talk. :>
