Just when you think you’ve put your warm fuzzies aside when you think that you’ve moved on and gotten over that glow of a good show, Still 2Gether releases posters for the upcoming season and you’re sucked right back in.
How can a simple poster make me all melty? Easy. Look at these things!
Look at Sarawat staring at Tine, all those feelings shining right through his eyes for Tine to notice! Here he’s singing him a song, I feel it in my bones. Its either a song he wrote directly for him or a cover of Tine’s one and only favorite group Scrubb. You can see in this picture, in just a second, Tine is going to grin back at Sarawat. Can’t you feel that moment coming?
Let’s move onto the next one.
We have another guitar because heaven forbid these two have an actual conversation without a guitar between them. I love the idea that this couch is way more cozy their the one in their apartment. It suits them. Tine is going to do his best to play and Sarawat is going to just beam down on him, all proud, until he catches himself and teases Tine for not doing it right. Then he might ask to touch Tine’s boobs and Tine will smack him.
I love this couple. I loved (with the exception of what I thought was a slightly missed ending) this show so much. Despite my misgivings for the change of director (especially after having finished He’s Coming To Me) I’m excited to see the extra 5 episodes they’re releasing in August.
And now we have a synopsis:
Is there any need to wait 10 years to see if the love between Sarawat and Tine lasts? In these special episodes we will see their relationship in Sarawat’s point of view. How he chased after Tine, even when it was only fake. At least until it became real, and Sarawat could be with the one he had been in love with for years, while Tine was still unaware of this connection. Finally we can see the lives of the other couples as they continue to love and care for each other. Man and Type, Phukong and Mil, how are their relationships lasting after all this time?
Huh. Okay, so we’re going to see this show from Sarawat’s perspective? Didn’t we do that in scene on the bus? (Where I think the show would have been better-serviced ending.) Swooning with Sarawat over watching Tine bumble along is not something I would forget. I mean, the part was so freaking cute, I guess I could watch episodes of it. I’d actually like to see things more from Sarawat’s perspective during those last episodes when Tine thought Sarawat was cheating on him. To me, it just seemed like Sarawat gave in too easily. FIGHT FO YO MAN!
I don’t love the idea of seeing more of the other couples because frankly, I didn’t love them. Do we really need to waste our limited time back with Sarawat’s friend and Tine’s brother? Is there anything left to tell there? I guess we could see more of Phukong and Mil, especially at the end where Phukong stood up for his brother against his crush…but not too much time, I don’t want any filler filling these episodes. I’m here for Sarawat and I’m here for Tine.
And I wouldn’t say no to a single kiss if I could get one. Hell, or a handhold. Swoooon, could you imagine this pair actually kissing for real? All the fangirl feels.
This whole post might just be a giant fangirl squee. Ask me if I care though? Spoiler alert: I don’t.
This news of course comes on the eve of my BL and Bubbles partner heading across the country for a long term family stay in the wilds of New Hampshire where the internet is notoriously not so good and we’re planning on breaking on the BL for a while. Fingers crossed scheduling works where we can sneak this one in as it starts mid-August and I’m not certain I can wait.
What about you? Are you excited for Still 2Gether? Do you have the same fears as I do? Did you care for the friend/brother storyline? Do you just want to talk to me about 2Gether so I don’t get sad thinking I’m fangirling alone?
Also, I’m coming back in after finishing and moving on as I forgot a very important thing I was going to mention. I found out that starting July 30th, 2Gether The Series will be available on Netflix in these countries:
Thailand, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Nepal, Brunei, Philippines, Bhutan, Mongolia, Maldives, Macao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia
Why can’t the US be one of those countries? I know we can watch it legally on Youtube directly from the distributor, but watching it on Netflix would add a little something more, wouldn’t it? Like a ‘you’ve made it, BL’ moment.
