💙 Solo x Gui: Height Difference 💙
OXYGEN | EPISODE 2
Some things about this drama annoy me (mainly the doctor subplot C), but overall I’m really liking the softness and innocence of the two main couples.
No offence but don’t really need the Dr and the Fujoshi love triangle in this show. Like does it add anything? Why did we have to go through that sequence to be left with a het couple? Nah no thanks.
I love doing my headcanon lists cus I don’t have much time to be writing right now cus I’m back to work. If you have any requests or prompts, drop them in my ask cus I need some inspiration!! 💙
(I’m open to pretty much any ship or show.)
I love them already 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺
Their chemistry is *chefs kiss*
Look at me falling for Solo and Gui 😍😍😍😍
“can I call you guitar?”
There are only two casting mistakes in Until We Meet Again…
Otherwise, this cast is picture perfect.
Love By Chance Season 2 A Chance to Love, has garnered several polarising reactions to its release.
It’s interesting for me when it comes to this show, to explore the creations of MAME, author of Tharn and Type, Accidently in Love (Love by Chance and A chance to love) and the How to Series (Also connected to this universe). She is an author who is very fond of exploring devices and dynamics in her stories to make her audience feel conflicted about her characters. And the truth is whilst I detest the use of some of the tools she uses (Non-Con etc.), Mame’s works have become a favourite to watch and analyse. The way she writes and creates some of her characters has produced a rollercoaster of emotions, debates and also just the most heartwarming feelings for her audience, including me. It; is interesting, breaking down and looking deeply into each of her character’s flaws and depths, and how they add to the relationship/message of romance she wants to tell.
A Chance to Love is one of those shows, bringing back a return of one of the best side couples in Thai BL shows, Tin and Can as the main couple and retelling their story. Tin and Can in Love by Chance was the typical trope found in romantic comedies, haters to lovers, rich and poor, a coldhearted person and a person with a heart of gold, type couples. However, Mame gives us a chance to watch their love unfold as they both realise that they end up being their best versions of themselves by being with the other. A learning opportunity that gives them what they truly need or want in life. (This is the basis of all Mame shows, a love that transcends everything despite the psychological, physical and mental barriers/environment the characters face)
For Tin we get to uncover the reasons for his mistrust in the world, and how Can joins his life and starts to give it colour. For Can we get to discover his reasons for his fear in being vulnerable (and different when you fall in love) when it leads to heartbreak and how Tin enters his life and starts to make him want to grow up and not feel ‘alone’ anymore.
So that’s the first thing to know: Mame’s characters are always pushed to the brink because of their past traumas, mistakes and beliefs. These actions turn the characters into quite irritable characters: villainous, toxic, cold, angry, rude etc. And the first introductions to her characters are difficult actually to accept sometimes. :
For Tin and Can in Love by Chance (Changed a bit in Chance to Love), Tin starts off as the villain prepared to separate the main couple (Ae and Pete) because he detests/ hates poor people because he thinks they use and manipulate the rich, only to always be hounded by Can who’s from the same group as AE and who is very protective of his friends.
Tin blackmails, acts rude and arrogant, insults and continues to be mean until the final episodes as he discovers that Can really is loyal and trustworthy. Can is also not perfect either: He’s childish, very nosy, and irritating (I love him but he is) and he breaks Tin’s heart because he doesn’t want to fall in love/doesn’t like how he feels because it’s stressful. Tin acts this way because he’s been groomed and betrayed into hating everything around him, he’s been traumatised due to past events by the stifling environment of his family issues especially his relationship with his brother.
One: 3 Dimensional characters with goals, different beliefs, and perspectives and personalities: There’s a reason for why the characters are acting the way they do, and it adds to the dynamics of why their relationship has meaning. They both need each other, and the audience can see that. By the end of Love By Chance and Chance to Love, we’re left empathising and understanding Tin’s character, his choices, and Can’s reasons for why he does what he does.
Two: It provides storytelling opportunities with structure, and depth to the plot: Mame uses her devices to ensure that there’s a plot that makes sense, it’s not rushed, it’s not done haphazardly, we follow the characters and watch as they develop and get better, as they learn, we also unfold the mysteries and understand the subtext and clues left in the plot. It makes the story exciting to follow and increases the audience’s own connection to see a happy ending and conclusion. To see the couple overcome all by love.
Three: Mame’s use of Psychology/Trauma: This is polarising, but I’m obsessed with how Mame introduces character’s with very set perspectives due to their past traumas. Not only do we get to watch the character confront their past issues (usually do by falling in love), but we also get introduced to many different explorations of nature vs nurture and facets of the human psyche in her stories. There’s also always a juxtaposition in the relationship dynamics, one character is one on the end of a spectrum, and the other compliments/ is on the other end. Tin and Can for example; Naivity/Innocence/Trusting of the world vs Conditioned/Cruelty/Pessimism of the world. It’s a perfect way to showcase why the two are made for each other and need learning from each other. Love not only comes to them by chance, but they were destined for each other from the start.
Four: None of her characters are perfect: This is something I enjoy in her works. Even her actual main characters are just as flawed as her villains, even her villains are just as 3D as the rest. In Chance to Love, for example, we’re introduced to Tul (He replaces Tin’s role in LBC Season 1 as the villain) he has a mask, he acts kind and caring on the outside, but we know from Tin he’s actually faking all that and has made mistakes in the past. Yet we see that he cares deeply for his child, and has his own love interest which he’s protective and emotionally driven by. Although he’s the villain, it’s hinted he has his own reasons and his own goals for why he needs to hide behind the mask. Once that reason is unveiled, the audience will also end up understanding him the way we know Tin. It won’t be surprising if Tul is as very much a victim of the environment as Tin is. (Considering he’s older he’s probably dealt with worse)
At the end of the day, Mame is a writer who loves to write love stories. Her goal is to make love stories that pull you in. And for this genre, I’m so grateful her words are made into shows. I want to comment a bit on the hate and controversy of her shows before I continue analysing this show.
One: Mame is trying to edit what is deemed toxic from A chance to love. Some people are waiting to find reasons for her to fail and make a mistake. But Chance to Love shows me she’s willing to edit her stories and make them more healthy. She’s changed some of the dynamics of Tin and Can, (making it more clear to see why they like each other instead of hyping up the angst with their haters to lovers dynamic from season 1) this is probably why she restarted the story again, just to edit and emphasise on their dynamics even more. She’s also made some characters retcon from their novels, in episode 4 Kengla and Technic apologise for their roles in the past season, while this is still not okay, you can see she’s trying to retcon their story and change some things. (I’m actually thinking she’s planning on giving Kengla more storylines to make his character more meaningful but that’s only a theory) and she’s doing the same for Tul and Hin.
Two: People claim to detest her works, so my advice just stop watching. It’s jarring to see tags full of people who are desperate to ruin the positiveness of fans for the shows, by making us feel guilty for liking her shows, for wanting to analyse her shows and for wanting to break down into depth her flawed characters. Stop watching the show, stop complaining about something that’s not going to change. If you can’t handle it, just stop spending your energy hating it.
Three: People need to stop sending hate to actors, Mark Siwat is an amazing actor who portrayed Kengla actually very well. He’s showing a role, stop attacking him for it. This is the same for those who are sending death threats to Mame, no she should not go kill her self, no she’s not a psychopath, no she’s not a demon. Stop watching and obsessing over her shows and leave her alone. If you dislike her stop paying attention to her it’s simple.
Chance to Love has begun, and episodes 1 to 4 have shown me the potential for the show to be just as good as the others, actors willing to play their roles properly, chemistry that isn’t forced, storylines with actual depth and plot to get into. I can’t wait to continue watching the show, especially for Tin and Can who keep being one of my favourite couples to anticipate every week. So this is just an introduction to my opinions on the world of Mame and her stories. Let’s see what happens from now on.
Day 23: Favorite Theme Song
During day 13, I told you guys that I am torn between TharnType and Love by Chance OST. They’re both great to be honest. And I always have them on shuffle and replay. At the end of the day, I went on and chose Be Mine as my favorite soundtrack. So, in today’s BL tag, (and just to be completely fair) I will share with you my favorite theme song from the series Love By Chance. Enjoy! ❤️
As said before next up is my 2Gether The Series review but I will also post the Still Together review right after followed by Why RU? The Series before I start doing Episode reviews.

Sharing earphones scene is a classic scene where we already know the moment but still lingering, feeling warm and happy whenever they do this. Starts from in the bus, bedroom, beach, and many scenes I can’t say everything. If they match, it looks beautiful awkward. If not, they look devastated. 😂♥️😳
And then this happened
