DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE SEEN WHYRU EPISODE 10. SPOILERS AHEAD.
HERE ARE THE INTER LINKS, SO PLEASE GO WATCH
Where we left off : Tutor and Fighter had officially becomes lovers. While sitting together in a bubble bath under the stars, Fighter confesses his love for Tutor then Tutor does the same, telling Fighter that he loves him too. They share a passionate kiss as the scene fades and credits begin to roll.
Where we begin : The shot from the room with Fighter still asleep and Tutor standing outside facing the sea. I’m going to put the clip in here, then we can unpack the significance of it.
Fighter wakes up, looking for Tutor. He walks out on the balcony sliding his arms around Tutor from behind. This is a very different Fighter, who is more comfortable with showing his affection and touching Tutor now that they’ve confessed to each other. He smiles gently as he places his head on Tutors shoulder. Tutor tucks his arms on top of Fighters. Hugging him in return. The look on Fighter’s face is pure happiness.
When I saw this I couldn’t help but draw a parallel to this scene. If only for this moment.
Back to Fighter, who teases Tutor that when he woke up alone, he was expecting to see cash on the bedside table and Tutor long gone. This cracked me up. Tutor teases back that he thought about it, but that Fighter wasn’t that good. I really started cackling at that. Way to hurt the poor mans ego. In case there’s anyone confused over this, basically Fighter implied that he showed Tutor a good time last night (sex) so he expected to have money on the nigh table (like Tutor was paying for it, aka Fighter was selling himself for money, prostitution) and his “client” gone. Which is why I was laughing at how hard Tutor shot him down saying he wasn’t that good, lol. Then Fighter does the cutest thing ever, he snuffles the back of Tutors neck in a teasing manor, and keeps trying to get Tutor to change what he’s saying. It’s so lovely to see this playful Fighter who always has seemed so serious. His childish side is coming out and its adorable.
Then Tutor gets serious. He asks Fighter, “Do you think what we are doing is ok?” Fighter is actually becoming a much better communicator. He asks him why does he say this? Is Tutor not ok with this (their being together). Tutor admits to feeling strange. This is because for Tutor, he’s not used to being loved, cuddled and taken care of. Fighter quickly takes this opportunity to push a little and tease Tutor at the same time. “Well if you feel strange, we can be in a relationship.” Tutor scolds him for pushing, tweaking his nose, but seems to be better after that.
Tutor tells Fighter to sit down because he bought something for him. We know that Tutor is very frugal and doesn’t have or use excess money for things. Fighter sits down, closes his eyes. Tutor proceeds to remove Fighter’s earring first, after telling him to sit still. Then Tutor places an earring with the letter T in his left ear. The look of joy on Fighter’s face here almost makes me cry. He’s not anyone who was used to getting gifts, and it means so much to him that Tutor spent his hard earned money to buy something for him. He feels so touched. Tutor says it looks good on him, he says of course don’t you know who I am? Tutor asks who and Fighter replies Tutor’s boyfriend with a smile on his face. Tutor with a gentle smile teases in return “Who said you can call yourself that?” Honestly though he’s still not quite to the commitment phase yet. Tutor needs time to process things. Changing the subject, Tutor reminds Fighter to wear the earring often, but Fighter goes a step further saying he will wear it all the time. He then makes Tutor stand still while he gets Tutor’s gift.
Fighter comes up behind Tutor and places a leather necklace with a dog tag on it. Tutor looks down “It’s your name Fighter.“ Fighter says the sweetest thing here that makes my heart melt. “This isn’t me, this is you because you are a fighter.” It’s the truth. Tutor had to fight so hard for everything in his life. Yet he kept his head up and walked on forward, trying to not let it get him down. Fighter is saying with his gift, I see you. I see what you’ve been through, I know who you are at your core. And whether it’s meant this way or not Fighter has become the love tutor to Tutor, showing him what real love looks like, love that doesn’t require anything in return, just freely given. That’s why they are so good together.
The next little scene with Tutor asking to be spoiled and carried inside is super cute. It shows Tutor is allowing himself to be babied and pampered enough to ask for what he wants. In Saint’s IG Live today we learned this little tidbit. Here’s a little screenshot of the translation.
If you don’t already you should follow Patty on Twitter. @PattySA_TH She translates a lot of WhyRU content from Thai to English and some Livestream stuff as well. She’s really nice too. The one part of that scene that had me laughing was TT saying he didn’t weigh much because he didn’t eat much. 🤣🤣 We all know our bunny can eat and eat.
They go on motocycles to the pier to catch a boat. Its a funny scene because apparently Fighter can’t drive a motorcycle so has to ride behind Tutor who teases him that hes not good at everything. Tutor leans in and tells Fighter that he’s not good at…pauses for dramatic effect…English. The grumpy look on Fighter’s face is cute. Tutor tells him to “Hold on tight Nong” which gets a sulky reply “Im older than you Tor.” Tutor just laughs him off and way they go. Can you imagine Fighter from episode 3 agreeing to ride docily behind Tutor. He’s becoming more whipped for Tutor.
After arriving at the dock, Fighter tries to put his arm around Tutor, who scolds him that people might be looking. It’s important to note that Fighter could care less who is watching, he wants to shower Tor with love and affection. However Tutor is still worried about what other people might say. I feel this will be the angst between them in upcoming episodes.
And here comes Fighter stepping up and saying what’s in his heart. This makes me teary eyed because he’s come so far from the closed off man we started with. He is being bold, declaring his intentions to Tutor.
Here’s also where we get some foreshadowing. Fighter promises to take Tutor’s hand and not let go. He makes one exception. Unless you are the one to tell me to let go, then I will, so you must never say that to me. We know from spoiler boy Saint that Tutor does break up with him, so he must use this promise to make Fighter walk away. 😭😭 I’m not ready for the 💔 yet. Since we’ve been reassured of our happy ending by the author and the producer, we know they will be ok, but it’s hard to see my favorite couple go through it. I also think that the necklace will unlock Tutor’s inner fighter and he will fight to get his love back once he’s come to his senses.
Fighter also reminds Tutor he doesn’t have to be afraid of him, afraid of sex with him, because he won’t push for it. But he also wont turn it down he says. 😁. Tutor becomes bolder with his moves. Kissing Fighter, then asking whether Fighter can handle another night with him. Then our two boys wrestle on the docks,and its completely Saint and Zee, not Tutor Fighter.
They are on the boat out to sea. Tutor taking video sitting next to Fighter. They tease each other. Fighter calling Tutor Mr. Boyfriend is super cute. Tutor says the island is big and Fighter says his boyfriend is big, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t mean fat, lol. Tutor threatens to throw him into the sea if he doesn’t quit, but then Fighter asks who will bring him home, so Tutor reassures him that he could get home himself. Fighter leans in looking at Tutor’s dick and says “Yes, the island is big” Naughty boy. Saint’s song begins to play. It’s about Tutors feelings toward Fighter, and the song is so lovely. Here’s the video and I’ll post the song lyrics too. They are so amazing at syncing this up to make it fit so perfectly. (The ones in parenthesis flow better as a native English speaker, so i put them to clarify meaning)
Having you makes me feel
My feelings has been changed (feelings have changed)
And I love you more than everyday(each day)
More than everything
I won’t let us be apart.
You’ve made my everyday meaningful
My life wouldn’t be meaningful without you here by my side (my life is meaningless without you by my side)
Having you here is enough
I can’t wait for this song to release because I love Saint’s voice. It’s so smooth. I am loving the lyric “I wont let us be apart” Tutor is really opening his heart. They are truly happy when they are together. They make each other smile and it reminds me of Saint and Zee because they do the same for each other. They make each other happy. Have to smile when they smile. Especially knowing the characters struggles and Saints real life struggles. I am happy to see him happy.
They do some snorkeling, then head over to the island. We see Tutor decide to call his mom because he misses her and the beach reminds him of a old promise made between his mother and himself to go to the beach together.
She asks him if he’s at the beach and wants to see who he’s with. He tells her honestly without any hesitation that he’s with Fighter. She replies she know because Tongta told her already. She then tells him to follow his heart. I fell in love with his mom right there. That was truly sweet and beautiful. No drama or angst, no worry, just love, acceptance and support which was a beautiful thing. Fighter waits til Tutor’s conversation is done before coming back to him. He checks in because he see’s that Tutor is a little melancholy. Fighter is perfect boyfriend material. He’s constantly monitoring Tutor making sure his needs are met and that he’s okay and happy. All he wants is for Tutor to smile and be at ease. This side of Fighter is different from the closed off Fighter from episode 1. But that Fighter fell in love with Tutor, and finally given the chance, and is showing Tutor how much he is loved and cherished. It’s so sweet.
The sweet playful beach montage begins. The lyrics play and the fit the mood between the two of them so well. I really am impressed with the music in this series. I actually love all the songs and they fit each mood and couple very well.
You’re the flower in my heart
You’re the present
You’ve made me find a whole new world
Oh… You’re the dream I’ve been waiting for so long
You’re the beautiful love thats up my lonely days
You’re my greatest love
You’re the reality that keeps me heart warm all the time
Just turning to you and looking at your eyes
I know how much you mean to me
Your smile is not like someone else’s
Inside my heart, there’s only you
Repeat lines 1-9
All the time
You’re that person
You’re the reality at that moment (ending on a sunset kiss in the water)
This scene, they play in the beach, but they also take turns carrying each other around. Remember in Episode 9, Tutor was a little shy or embarrassed to be piggybacked by Fighter, but now just runs and jumps up on him, thats how comfortable he’s become with Fighter. And Tutor is strong enough to carry Fighter. Another important and symbolic detail. If needed, he will carry his love’s burdens as well. There relationship so far is built on equality, meaning that they’ve both come to realize they can lean on each other and its quite beautiful.
Time to go to their place. This time its another villa with a private sauna and pool. I need to be Fighter’s boyfriend, lol. He sure gets the special treatment here. Fighter wants everything to be perfect for his “little prince” because Fighter wants Tutor to know he’s treasured. He really is the most romantic person once his heart has opened.
Tutor thanks Fighter once again. “You don’t need to thank me all the time. Just love me a lot.” Fighter is doing this out of love and doesn’t want Tutor to feel obligated or thankful, just enjoy it. Tutor snuggles up to him, surprising Fighter. When asked what he was doing, Tutor’s answer is “Giving you lots of love” which gets Fighter a little physically excited, so he suggests that Tutor take a shower. Tutor asks him to take a bath with him, then turns on the seductive charm. Tutor is becoming more confident in voicing what he wants and being assertive in the bedroom.
This is such a teasing move and it’s clear that Fighter is trying to keep his cool. And oh my goodness Saint is super sexy here. Not going to lie. When he moves his hand to the Adam’s apple we all dream of, I feel like swallowing hard right along with Zee. Wow.
Sauna scene time. In the script it was a shower scene, but they thought the sauna provided more interesting setting. And they weren’t wrong. And not really safe for work, but since the corona virus has a lot of people working from home, i guess it’s ok then. 😁
Tutor is such a giant tease in this scene. He leads Fighter by the hand into the sauna. He knows what he’s doing and he’s very confident in his ability to seduce Fighter. After running his hands all along Fighters shoulder and chest he asks him “why are you making that face?” To which he gets a little embarrassed and shy because his body isn’t under his control anymore so he says “Nothing” and turns away. Tutor decides this is the perfect opportunity to move closer, so he slide in behind Fighter. He then slides his hands up and down, lingering on the sensitive nipple of Fighter. He figured out Fighter’s hot spots after their first night together, so he’s going to use it to his advantage. Ahem, it is very steamy in the sauna. After moving to sit beside Fighter, Tutor keeps teasing, kissing very sensitive ears and neck. Then that naughty hand slides south into Fighter unbuttoned shorts and underwear. This shocks Fighter into pulling away saying he doesn’t want to break his promise. Tutor reassures Fighter, the one who will break the promise will be him. Then he proceeds to get Fighter all worked up with some smooth moves before things get going good. I am also a little shocked that when they flip position, Fighter grabs Tutor’s hand and places it directly against his package. Um hello there. Wow. Kissing intensifies and i laugh at the sizzle of water tossed onto the lava rocks as a transition to the poolside. Yes director, they were certainly sizzling hot, lol.
Next they are poolside with Fighter breathing like he’s run a marathon. Clearly Tutor has done quite a number on him, lol. The shorts have come off and they are in underwear. Tutor once again takes control, grabbing Fighter for a fierce kiss while pulling him down. Wow. Just wow. I apparently say that a lot during this scene, but give props to the actors cause these scenes are intense. For episode 9’s nc scene it took four hours. That’s a long time to be hot and heavy. Separate post up in the next few days about the tea that P’Kla spilled during his Poom Alone reaction guest appeareance. As well as what we’ve learned from P’Aof’s live. And this morning I found out that we have a reaction video on Poom Alone with everyone there so cant wait to see how that goes.
The pool scene with scattered clothing around implying naked pool time, is not only a slightly spicy scene, but a heartfelt one as well. Tutor’s arms wrapped around Fighter neck is so sweet. And Fighter telling Tutor he’s so fucking happy is just the best, plus the smile and kiss. He has never been this happy in his life. Never did he expect that he would love someone this much and be loved in return. He warns Tutor not to get bored of him, and tutor says he doesn’t want the same, which prompts a wolffish smile from Fighter who says “How could I get bored after what just happened?” Tutor get a little shy after that, but of course he denies it.
Fighter admits every time he’s with Tutor his heart beats like crazy. It always has. Tutor feels the same way. Serious time here. Fighter promises that Tutor is the only man, then corrects himself and says the only person that makes him feel like this. A long awaited dream. (Please please make it not a dream…..my heart will break). For Tutor he feels the same way, but for him P’Fight is his reality. It’s only Tutor for him, It always has been. And Tutor had eyes only for Fighter. And he let Fighter know it. This love took the long way around for two years, but its finally their time. A sweet underwater kiss is shared and its so lovely to see. The actors did a good job here because it wasn’t easy to film. They didn’t have the equipment to do an underwater spin, so here is the behind the scenes detail on this one. 🐰💕
Their feelings are finally on the same page. They are happy and confident in their love for each other. After all the struggles, two years of longing and hiding his love, Fighter finally finds happiness that he’s never experienced before. And Tutor learns to let his guard down and let someone into his heart, placing himself in a vulnerable position of relying on someone else, letting himself be loved and loving in return.
The next morning we see this site, and I love it. Tutor is cradling Fighter in his arms, he’s letting his love rest on him, providing warmth and love. Fighter has probably not been in anyone’s arms before, no one to hold him, keep him close, and love him.
The sweet gestures are so sweet, like candy. The morning kisses given to each other. And Fighter being vulnerable enough to ask to be babied because he likes feeling safe and protected in his lovers arms makes me a little emotional. There are no walls for him anymore, he trusts Tutor enough to give himself completely to his lover. It so beautiful to see. Then Tutor caressing Fighters arms and shoulders is such a tender gesture between lovers. It’s this kind of scene that makes their chemistry so real. It feels like we aren’t looking at characters anymore, but a real pair of new lovers in the honeymoon phase of their love. There have only been a few couples in bl who have managed to pull off the same, in my opinion. Knock/Korn from Together with Me, TharnType, Kongpope and Arthit from Sotus. Check them out if you haven’t seen them, they are worth the watch.
Tutor resting his head on Fighters chest as they both smile in contentment brings a smile to my face.They deserve this.
Shower scene and product placement time. Apparently Zee designed this scene of domestic bliss and its freaking adorable. They cross arms while they brush their teeth and it looks like two grooms going down the aisle. Then Fighter picks up Tutor in the shower, of course that was unscripted by Zee.
Tutor wants to tell Hwa about their relationship. Fighter doesn’t want Tutor to worry, but Tutor wants to tell his childhood friend about them. This prompts Fighter to ask if this means that he’s sure about them. Tutor agrees and Fighter hugs him in relief. Even after wonderful weekend he wasn’t sure they could be called boyfriends yet. Major milestone: I feel like you have unlocked my feelings from Tutor. Then there’s the scene with the photo I worry about. Fighter thinks its adorable and Tutor tells him not to show anyone. I love the fact that they’ve come full circle right here.
The symmetry here is lovely. Episode 9 and 10 they have become possessive over each other.
They are ready to leave to return to Bangkok and the real world.
Tutor is sad to leave because its the happiest he’s been in a long time. He’s worried when they get home the world will interfere. I love Fighter’s reply. “Our happiness has just begun.” He wants to reassure Tutor that this happiness will continue and grow. Tutor asks if they still need to prove their feelings. I think he’s feeling unsure at this moment. Fighter answers truthfully, why do we need to prove any more? He offers a hand out for Tutor to take. Tutor is slow to take it but Fighter waits patiently while holding his hand out. He told Tutor he would take his hand and not let go. He’s showing Tutor his intentions to hold tightly to him.
I inserted another lovely parallel from the beginning of 9 to the end of 10. Fighter was the one who wanted to know if Tutor could picture them in the end. Yet Fighter is the one with the words echoing Tutor. I believe everything will be ok. So beautiful. I’m so happy to see that Tutor took his hand, and leaned on his shoulder. He’s letting Fighter take away his worries, leaning on his love for both reassurance and support.
If you’ve stayed til the end, I love you for it. 💕💕💕 Thanks for reading, and please comment to let me know what you think.
