this is a soul mark au. there are two Tines in it. OG Tine is the Tine from the show. Tine 2.0 is an original character i made up.
Everyone is born with the name of their soulmate on their body. everyone except Tine. he is told that it will come in eventually but at 19 years old he has given up hope. he meets Sarawat in university and is drawn to him immediately. they start fake dating but something seems to be drawing them together. Tine has trouble sleeping so he starts coming to Sarawat’s apartment to sleep. they even start cuddling. Tine and Sarawat are not dating at this point but they are also not not dating. they have kissed a few times and when Sarawat comes to cheer practice to grab Tine’s boobs he lets him.
at some point Tine just breaks down in Sarawat’s apartment because he wants to be with him so bad but he knows Sarawat has a name on him. this is when Sarawat revels the name on him is Tine. Tine tells him he has no name so Sarawat takes his arm and a permanent marker and writes Sarawat claiming Tine as his own. they start dating and are very happy. they move in with each other and just assume Sarawat’s name never appeared on Tine. they stop doubting they are soulmates.
sophomore year rolls around and it brings trouble. there is a new freshman in the music club who is very talented, plays multiple instruments. there name is also Tine and they claim the name on there body is Sarawat. OG Tine is heartbroken and starts to wonder if Tine 2.0 is Sarawat’s actual soulmate. Sarawat is also very confused. He loves OG Tine but realizes that on paper Tine 2.0 is the better match. They go around in circles for months until OG Tine finally tells Sarawat to go on a date with Tine 2.0 just to see. So Sarawat goes on the date and realizes that he likes Tine 2.0 as a person but he loves OG Tine. when he gets home from the date he feels guilty for going out and decides to sleep on the couch (he doesn’t feel like he deserves to sleep in the same bed at OG Tine).
OG Tine wakes up in the morning alone and assumes the date went well and that Sarawat stayed over night with Tine 2.0. OG Tine goes to take a shower and when he takes his shirt off he notices a mark on his chest. he looks at it and realizes it’s Sarawat’s name. he starts to cry thinking just as he found his name he lost him. OG Tine starts trashing the bathroom which wakes up Sarawat and has him rushing into the bathroom in a panic. Sarawat stops OG Tine and they hug. Sarawat explains he was just on the couch and then OG Tine shows him the mark. they hug and kiss and celebrate that OG Tine is truly Sarawat's.
Sarawat and OG Tine meet up with Tine 2.0 in a cafe and explain that they know they are soulmates and while Tine 2.0 might have his name on him it has to be another Sarawat. this is when Tine 2.0 reveals that he never had Sarawat’s name on him and that he made it all up because he had a crush on Sarawat. Tine 2.0 hoped that since Sarawat had Tine on him that meant he could get away with it. he apologizes for hurting them both and offered to leave the music club.
Sarawat and Tine live happily ever after and never question their marks again.
Tine is a high school senior. he’s been exploring his sexuality and decides to go to a gay club. he ends up meeting Sarawat. they dance the night away and then go to a hotel room and have sex. Tine leaves while Sarawat is sleeping and heads home. he is shook to his core because he like being with a man and can’t deal with it. he quickly gets involved in a relationship with a girl at school and pretends it never happened.
a month later he and his girlfriend go on a double date with a friend of his girlfriend and the guy she likes. Pam and Sarawat arrive and Tine nearly chokes on his water. Sarawat gets Tine alone on the date and they talk. Tine admits it was the best night of his life but says it can’t happen again. his parents will not except a gay son. Sarawat feels for Tine and tells them they can just be friends.
so Tine and Sarawat try to be ‘friends’ but the sexual tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife. so they start hooking up (when Tine is single). which leads to more feelings. as the school year comes to a close Tine is a mess because what he wants is Sarawat but he can’t have him. Tine tries to cut the friendship off but Sarawat begs him not to. Tine says he can’t just be friends so Sarawat suggest they become secret boyfriends. They date in secret (except to their friends) all through college. Tine finally comes out and his parents who while not excited about it do except him.
Sarawat and Tine were college friends. there was alway something between then but they never acted on it. after college ended Sarawat distanced himself in an attempt to move on. they meet again when they are 25.
they are in a grocery store and Sarawat hears a crying baby. he comes around a corner and finds Tine cooing at a baby. they awkwardly say hi to each other then then Sarawat starts singing to the baby and it calms down. Tine is so grateful he offers to make Sarawat dinner. once at Tine’s apartment he gets the whole story. Tine got his long term girlfriend pregnant so they had a quick courtroom wedding. never got around to doing the reception. they had the baby and a few months later Tine’s wife packed a bag and took off leaving him alone with the baby. so he’s been a single dad ever since.
Sarawat starts helping out with the baby as a friend. his job has more flexible hours. they spend all there time together and they become a little family. people will comment on how cute the three of them are and instead of correcting them Tine will just say thank you. one night after the baby is sleeping Tine and Sarawat talk about their relationship and feelings. Tine admits he had a crush on Sarawat in college and it broke his heart when he ghosted him. Sarawat apologizes and they start over as a couple.
they live as a couple for three years and the baby only knows of Tine and Sarawat as her parents because her mom took off when she was so young. but the mom comes back but not for the reason Sarawat thinks (he totally panics). he thinks she come back for her family but in reality she wants a divorce. she admits she felt suffocated by being a mom and felt she was too young to be tied down. so she ran away. she wanted to travel and have fun, not sit home and change diapers. Tine agrees with the divorce if she will give up custody of the baby so Sarawat can adopt her. mom agrees and Sarawat is officially made the second parent. Tine and Sarawat finally get married and live happily ever after.
when Tine is 5 his family dies in a horrible accident that kills everyone but him. it’s so horrible and traumatic that Tine stops speaking. he ends up living with the Guntithanon family. from the moment Sarawat see’s Tine he knows his purpose in life is to protect him. they become instant best friends. Sarawat learns sign language so they can talk and even shares his bed with Tine because he has nightmares.
as Tine and Sarawat grow older they live in a world of their own. they have other friends but no one matters like they do. they even continue to share a bed. sometimes Sarawat’s mother questions the relationship but never out loud. she also understands that Tine is very traumatized and relies on Sarawat to feel okay.
secretly Tine and Sarawat are dating. despite growing up together they never saw each other as brothers. as they head to college they get an apartment together so they can keep living together. eventually Sarawat’s mom finds out the truth and at first is upset but grows to understand that Sarawat and Tine just work. even if it doesn’t make sense.
in his twenties Tine decides to let go of his trauma and speaks for the first time in almost 20 years. the first word he says is ‘Sarawat’.
after Tine runs away from Sarawat after he see’s him hugging Pam. he does not end up going to the hospital with Mill. he tells Mill to fuck off and heads out across campus sobbing. He ends up running into Pear who takes Tine back to her dorm. she gives him medication for his stomach, listens to his story about why Sarawat is leaving him, then she tucks him into her bed and leaves him to sleep. Pear contacts Earn who tells Sarawat where to find Tine.
Sarawat comes to Pears dorm and she tells him he has an hour to plead his case or she’s keeping Tine for herself (platonically). she lets him in her dorm and goes and has dinner with a friend.
inside Sarawat watches over a sleeping Tine. he finally wakes him up and they talk. Tine explains that the main reason he ran was because he thought Pam was better then him and he felt Sarawat could do so much better than Tine. Sarawat realizes that it was Tine anxiety and feelings of worthiness that led to him running away. they talk it out. Sarawat explains he has no romantic interest in Pam and they make up.
Pear comes back in an hour and they are all made up. she sends them home so she can have her room back to herself.
Mil: Sometimes, I think Phukong and I should kiss.
Sarawat: And sometimes I think I should do crystal meth. I guess we all have bad ideas.
when Tine and Sarawat are 5 they are best friends. Sarawat proposes marriage and Tine says yes. but says that they will have to wait till they are older. Sarawat agree’s.
when Tine and Sarawat are 12 Sarawat admits in front of their friends that Tine is the only person he can see himself dating. Tine who has a girlfriend laughs nervously.
at 13 Tine kisses Sarawat in his treehouse and they become a couple.
at 14 they lose there virginity in that same treehouse.
at 19 they move in together at the start of college
at 25 Sarawat proposes again and Tine says yes. Sarawat asks if they are old enough yet and Tine says they are. They live happily ever after.
14 year old Tine is the son of a politician. His family is going through a scandal so they ship him off to a British boarding school. He is made roommates with Sarawat. The son of a massive conglomerate. It has recently been discovered Sarawat is the product of an affair between his mom and rival businessman. Both have been given instructions to lay low and not cause trouble.
Tine and Sarawat bond over missing their homeland, how terrible British food is, and music. They know being friends is wrong and would cause their family trouble so they pretend to not like each other in public. But in private they are a couple. They continue their relationship all through school. When they return to Thailand for university they get into the same school and rent an apartments in the same building so it’s easier to see each other.
Everything is fine until there mid 20’s when both family’s starts trying to set them up on dates with women. They realize they need to tell their family’s the truth. Tine’s father thinks it’s great and will boat his appeal with younger audiences. Sarawat’s family is not okay with it. Sarawat’s mom has had to work hard to keep him as the heir considering he’s not her husband’s son. Sarawat’s father tells him he can be the heir or he can be gay. Sarawat picks Tine and loses his job, his apartment, car, and his dads family. Sarawat is devastated, but Tine comes through and takes care of him. Sarawat moves in with Tine and starts looking for a job. His birth father offers him a job as an apology for never being there for him. Sarawat turns it down out of respect for the dad who raised his. He ends up working at a company where he will never be promoted enough to run it. And he is okay with that.
Tine and Sarawat continue to live together happily. They stay out of the spot light as much as possible and just live their lives.
Tine has a twin sister named Tia. she is the favorite child and always gets what she wants. and what she wants is what ever Tine has. she has been stealing things and people from him all her life. but when they get to college Tine falls for Sarawat and so does Tia. she expects Tine to just hand him over to her. but for the first time in his life Tine stands up for himself and refuses to give in to Tia. Sarawat of course falls for Tine instead of Tia and that kills her.
though years later when she’s calmed down she realizes she never liked Sarawat she just wanted to steal him from Tine and that is was pretty horrible of her.
Sarawat and Tine go to the same high school. They meet as 1st years but Tine doesn’t remember it. Sarawat was getting bullied and Tine stood up for him. He even got punched protecting Sarawat.
Sarawat instantly falls in love with Tine. Over the years Sarawat watches over Tine from a distance. They interact occasionally but are never friends. They know each other well enough to greet each other in the hall but that's it. Any step closer to Tine is a dream come true to Sarawat who is too shy to confess.
Tine on the other hand also notices Sarawat. He is impressed by his music skills and his athletic abilities. He also admits (to himself) that Sarawat is the most attractive guy he’s ever met. It isn’t until the end of 3rd year that Tine starts to doubt his sexuality. By the time college hits Tine is sure of his bisexuality.
Tine realizes Sarawat and him are in the same university. He also realizes he has feelings for him and has had them for over a year. He joins the music club to get closer to Sarawat. It works and the two of them start flirting. Sarawat misunderstands Tine’s relationship with Pear and think’s Tine likes her and they get in an argument which ends in Tine admitting its Sarawat he likes. after the confusion fades they both blush for different reasons and then Sarawat also confesses his feelings.
Tine and Sarawat start dating. They keep their relationship quiet at first so they can figure things out on there own but one Saturday Tine and Sarawat are making out on Tine’s bed when his friends start banging on the door. Sarawat hides on the balcony but they find him. They confess their relationship and everyone just laughs because their friend knew the whole time because they were so obvious.
Tine see’s Sarawat perform at freshers night and instantly fall for him. Tine who is openly bi just never dated a guy goes looking for Sarawat. He finds him and discovers that he is receptive to his flirting. Unfortunately there communication is terrible and they both get the impression that the other only wants a friend with benefits. But because they like each other they agree.
So over the next couple of months they hook up, occasionally sharing a meal. Tine also 100% joins music club to be closer to Sarawat. The problem is they both want more but don’t know how to ask for it. Sarawat is also jealous of anyone Tine talks to. He’s paranoid Tine is going to find someone he wants to date and leave him. They both feel paralyzed by the relationship because they want more but are afraid the other person wants less.
The first term is coming to a close when Tine goes to Sarawat to tell him he can’t see him till finals are over. He needs to focus on school. Sarawat blows up raving about Tine finding some one else and just using it as an excuse. They argue and Tine ends up admitting he’s in love with Sarawat. Sarawat yells back that he’s in love with Tine as well. They both laugh and end up having their first honest conversation where both admit to wanting a real relationship. Tine also tells Sarawat despite what he thinks the only person he’s been with since start of term is him. The news shocks Sarawat, who thought (based on the fact that Tine is nice to everyone) Tine was dating several people.
They finally become a couple but Tine still says they can’t meet till after finals. Sarawat groans but agrees on the promise that he can take Tine on a real date when finals are done.
in the early stage of Tine and Sarawat’s relationship Tine finds himself holding back. he is naturally very clingy and affectionate person but this behavior has scared off past girlfriends. Sarawat notices Tine acting weird and Tine admits why and Sarawat is like be as clingy as you want I love it. so Tine finally gets to express his love the way he wants and Sarawat loves it. mostly because he is just as clingy and affectionate.
