Coco - An Untold Legend ch.1
The sun was starting to set and Miguel was humming to himself as he climbed up the little set of stairs before the front door of his home. The Rivera home of the Land of the Dead was different than the one in the Land of the Living; it was tall and pink and circled around a courtyard. The tall part of the building was three floors tall and was the homey-part of the property, while the rest of the one-level building was the workshop. There was a professional entrance for customers on the other side of the house, but Miguel was using the family entrance. He opened the door and smiled at the living room before him. The walls were a soft white a

Rated for a violent character death.
And I'm so sorry it had to end this way for him. He's one of my favorite OCs of mine. One day I will write his entire story. There's a lot more to this guy than meets the eye, and I really wanted his death to be tragic and unfair after all he's been through. Not everyone gets a happy ending :(

I expected this chapter to be longer, but it's become so long I decided to break it up into 2 instead ^^; 

Thanks to the people who still read this story. It's one of my most popular so I hope you guys like it. Hopefully only one more chapter and an epilogue to go :la:

Basil, Ratigan, Dawson (c)Eve Titus and Disney
Grayson, Charlotte, Edward, Jaeger (c)Me

Previous chapter-->Danger in the Shadows Ch. 17

Next chapter--> Danger in the Shadows Ch. 19 

Also, this chapter's cover art is brought to you by :icondragonm97hd:! Go check out her gallery, she's got some awesome stuff :heart:

Phenomenal and thrilling chapter; excellent job at delivering on all the heightened suspense in the previous chapter! Tons of improvement with your writing skills as well!

And man, as tragic and inevitable as it was, that character death at the end still ended up breaking me a bit inside. Emote - RS with White Flower Definitely a very bitter sendoff, but as Ratigan alluded to, probably the best outcome for him in the end given his decisions and criminal lifestyle. In the end, he just dug his own grave. It really emphasizes the theme of consequence terrifically here. The unnerving imagery of the actual moment was also written wonderfully; it made my stomach churn when I first read it. Fantastic character writing though. I'll definitely be looking forward to reading his entire backstory someday.

Aww thank you so much for this! It means a lot to me that you think my writing has improved! I've been trying to work on improving it lately. I needed that confidence boost, thank you. When someone notices the work I put into these stories it makes it so much more worth it :hug:

I don't remember if I've ever killed a character off before without them somehow overcoming and surviving, so this was hard! Jaeger is one of my personal fave characters, and I hate I haven't used him much in my art or stories yet before I killed him ^^; But I'm hoping to get some of his story up soon. Been working on it for a couple years now but still don't have all the pieces quite lined up. It actually starts off focusing on his father Owen, but he actually has a huge impact on the outcome of Jaeger's life. I hope I get to finish it and share their story soon ^^

Yeah, out of the majority of your works I've read recently (including revisiting some older chapters), I think this is one of your strongest so far. The nice thing about featuring the character death is that it actually serves a purpose to the plot and allows the reader to take away a theme/moral, and that kind of bittersweet commentary is super refreshing. Regardless, I can at least appreciate having the death in there for good drama; the fake-out death trope is so overused these days, its ridiculous. The character death was so brutal in its execution, it definitely felt like a gruesome scene I'd read out of Redwall (and I mean that in the best way).

I definitely agree; finding appropriate endings for characters is never easy. Either way, I'm super excited for learning more about his backstory and childhood. I'm sure I'll be in for a great read in the future! ^^
