I was told this is a fossilized sea urchin, but I’d love to know an estimate on age. It’s approximately the size of a large mandarin orange. I found it on North Myrtle Beach. Ty submitted by ljrunk to fossilid [link] [comments]
2023.06.03 03:04 Drakolf The Hole:
Construction was stalled, due to the Triaxi going on strike.
It wouldn't have been as big an issue if it was for reasonable accommodations- indeed, Gorfahn did everything the Union requested that was perfectly reasonable. he supplied them with more than the minimum required breathing masks, even though those things were built sturdier than FTL-dispersal shielding.
He paid them double the minimum required wage because they were good, efficient workers, and the pay wasn't enough to really be worth them getting it done as quickly as they were able.
He even went as far as going out of his way to buy from their favorite fast food joint for their lunches, and that wasn't even something the Union requested.
He knew more than anything that the best way to keep good workers around was to treat them with respect and give them good incentives to stick around. Which was why the strike baffled him.
They were demanding an increase in wages. It would have been fine if it was a few credits extra, the economy was kind of in the shitter and that would more than make up for inflation- he knew this because he checked with his accountant- a notoriously stingy bastard who cut as close to the corner as he could- and went above his recommendation.
But to be paid quadruple the minimum wage, he was barely making a profit paying them double, giving them a small boost in their pay would have him breaking even- which was something he definitely didn't want to do long-term. Not in this economy.
Gabriel was a damn good accountant, in spite of his miserly ways, he knew how to save an extra credit here and there without compromising Gorfahn's standards. "No way how you slice it, there's no way you can meet their demands without going bankrupt." He said.
Gabriel wasn't remorseless, just ruthless. His business acumen more than made up for Gorfahn's bleeding heart. If it wasn't for him, the company would have never found its footing.
"I just don't understand why they would do this." Gorfahn said morosely, the Udarik's spines rippling along his back. "Even if I had the money, I wouldn't agree to this, and that isn't even going into how they haven't given me a good reason for this."
Gabriel sighed, nodding. The Union hadn't come to either of them about this, and refused to make a statement regarding it. It was in his professional opinion this wasn't a Union-sanctioned strike. "We might have to resort to scabbing." He said.
Gorfahn flinched, he'd had his fair share of going on strike for various reasons, some of them he was ashamed to admit were for less honorable pursuits. He would have understood if this was a spite strike if he was a bad boss.
A small part of him wondered if he was.
"We might." He said softly. "But where are we going to find enough workers to cover the deadline? The Triaxi are fiercely loyal to their own kind, they'd never scab on a strike."
"Putting out a notice might net you a fine." Gabriel pointed out. "And getting the proper paperwork for it would take longer than your deadline. All we need is enough to keep us on track, our client might be willing to ignore a delay."
Gorfahn began to pace, trying to think of a solution, yet when nothing came to mind, he looked at Gabriel balefully. "I don't know what to do." He said.
"I have an idea."
The beach was out of the way, a solid hour's drive away. While the Triaxi were content to maintain their strike, and thus nothing was going to get done regardless, Gorfahn had to maintain that this was the only way to save his business and his reputation from irreparable damage.
He didn't know what Gabriel's plan was, but considering he went out of his way purchase a bucket and change into beach attire, it was certainly going to be something suitably unorthodox.
Especially since Gabriel hated spending money pointlessly.
The beach was busy, people of all species enjoying themselves, the Aquanti lifeguard lounging in their observation tank, a few fellow Udarik playing with a whizzer. Under any other circumstances, Gorfahn would have smiled.
Joy was a treasure to his kind, and its destruction was an indelible sin.
He followed Gabriel halfway to the shoreline, and before he could even ask what the plan was, Gabriel brought out a sturdy telescopic trowel and began shoveling sand into the bucket. Gorfahn stared blankly at his accountant, and knowing that the answer he would get would be redundant- like just 'Digging'- he knelt down and used his sturdy claws to dig.
The Udarik had evolved to tunnel, and sand wasn't good material for this. Compared to Gabriel's trowel, he was only really twice as efficient. Still, they continued to dig, even as the hole continuously filled itself in.
That's when he noticed something. A couple of Humans had approached, observing them.
"Alright, bucket's full, spread it along the beach." Gabriel said, providing no further clarification. Gorfahn nodded, lifted up the heavy bucket with ease, and started pouring it along the beach. When he came back, the two Humans he'd noticed were digging the hole with Gabriel, one had even brought his own bucket with him.
He didn't question what was going on, he simply understood that Gabriel had tapped into some intrinsic Human understanding and had summoned Humans to assist.
"Ayo, big guy, get us some water, yah?" One of the Humans said, pointing at his bucket. Gorfahn complied, setting down Gabriel's bucket, picking up the other one, and walking to the shoreline. Filling the bucket was simple, he just used the tide to fill it with water before bringing it back.
The number of Humans had doubled, as had the total number of buckets. Gorfahn set the bucket down, and the Humans immediately began dipping smaller buckets into it, pouring it into and around the hole- which practically instantly drained empty- and began digging more efficiently.
This begat a system in which Gorfahn would acquire more water while more and more humans were drawn closer and closer. in between trips, he heard Gabriel talking about what was going on with his workers. "So I brought my good buddy, Gorfahn, here to relax a bit while we figure out how to deal with the situation."
The hole widened before it was deepened, large rocks were brought over by other Humans, laid out gently in a pile near the hole, before finding a new home lining the walls of the hole. Some of the Humans had begun digging a channel to the ocean, which when finished caused every flow of the tide to send a small burst of water through the channel and into the hole, which was deep enough to hold water due to being level with the ocean.
The Humans whooped and hollered, jumping around and celebrating the apparent completion of the hole.
That was when the wisdom of Gabriel's plan became apparent.
More than half of the total number of Humans- seventy-eight of them- expressed that they were construction workers, that considering the situation and the fact that they were looking for work, they'd be willing to help Gorfahn finish on time.
Especially since the Triaxi were being dicks.
The next morning, the Humans arrived on time at the right destination, most brought their own tools, the rest made due with the ones Gorfahn provided. And every single one of the Humans shot the observing Triaxi dirty looks.
There was thankfully no altercation, and Gorfahn was more than willing to pay the Humans what the Triaxi would have earned- most tried to talk him down to a lower price, but Gorfahn insisted- and by the time the new building was complete, the commission earned, and the Humans paid, Gorfahn was sitting on a solid profit.
"If you ever need help again, hit us up. And if you need a Human's touch, we'll more than gladly help you, boss." One of the Humans spoke. They all gave him their contact information, and like a tornado were just as quickly gone.
"Now." Gabriel spoke. "We did make significantly less than we would have if the Triaxi had just done their jobs, but we still earned a net profit. I'm not saying we should regularly hire our new friends, maybe a handful per job to keep things flowing-"
"I know." Gorfahn spoke solemnly. He cast a baleful eye at the Triaxi. He approached them, the air was tense as they regarded one another.
"You're firing us, aren't you?" The ringleader of the strike asked.
"I'd be well in my rights to." Gorfahn replied. "Far as I can tell, this wasn't Union sanctioned, you didn't let me get a word in edgewise, and you nearly destroyed my business. Anyone else would tell you to never show your face around them again."
He looked at each worker, each averted their gaze. "I am kind because it is not a weakness." Gorfahn continued. "I paid you double a fair wage, keep more breathing masks in reserve on the off chance that one of you manage to break one, and I went out of my way to get you food you like, on my credit."
He swallowed back a surge of anger. "I will be renegotiating your contract with the Union, your wage will be docked by one fourth until the loss I took is paid in double, and I will be regularly hiring some of those Humans to work alongside you on the job, they will get the full wage I offer. If you don't like this, you're free to quit, I'll terminate your contract with no extra charge. As a courtesy."
He lowered his voice, taking on a tone of threat. "If you pull this kind of squaff again, your contract will be terminated immediately. Is this understood?"
The Triaxi nodded, they had never seen Gorfahn this angry before, some of them were surprised he didn't lash out at them.
"Good." He said. "You are dismissed. Do not disappoint me like this again."
Gorfahn turned around and stalked off, struggling to keep his spines from bristling with anger. He promised himself, no matter what happened, he would never allow his kindness to wane, but he was not going to waste time trying to keep people happy.
He would rather them be joyful for the right reasons.

2023.06.03 00:53 capstonec1 "1976" film: The context behind the Cannes acclaimed film by Manuela Martelli from a chilean perspective
It’s necessary to know the political context of Chile in 1976 to understand such a good film. It happens after the government of Salvador Allende was violently taken out of their charge on September 11th, 1973, when according to the National Congress Library of Chile (2017) a Military Board installed themselves on charge of the political power of Chile, establishing an authoritarian government. Among other immediate measures, they established the closure of the National Congress, the recess of political parties and establishes the Site Status throughout the country, the Military Board governed the country until March 11, 1990. The dictatorship period was characterized by the practice of extensive and brutal political repression from the hands of the National Intelligence Directorate, from 1973 until 1978, this led to abuses and multiple violations of Human Rights. This is context of the film, and the reason why the women was screaming in the streets at the start of the film, also why a body showed up on the beach, why Elías was hurt and why Carmen has to hide when talking to one of his friends.
Thousands of citizens were arrested, it produced mass raids and torture, murders, and missing people that until today their families don’t know where they are, which were mostly targeted towards the militants and sympathizers of the deposed Popular Unity (a Chilean political party that leads towards socialism and communism), like Elías, the guy that Carmen takes care of.In this context, a considerable number of Chileans searched refuge in foreign embassies or leave the country, which is why the priest says that a lot of people escaped to other countries.
According to Cruz and Ramírez (2018) the role taken by the catholic church, like the priest, in the context of a highly politicized society as it was Chile during the Popular Union government (from 1970 until 19739) was not extent of tension, relevant catholic groups supported the “revolutionary process” that the country was going through, the more visible face of that were the “Christians for Socialism”. There was a very strong critique from the bishops towards the violent expressions from the opposition (the right-wing political parties), in a posture pro a pacific exit from the political crisis that was about to come. The ecclesial hierarchy accepted the rules of the new government, while also were starting to assist the victims of the political repression, meanwhile the government was looking for support from the bishops.
This is an example of the role that church played in real life during that brutal period of time in our history: Cardinal Silva Henríquez promoted the creation of the Ecumenical Committee for Cooperation for Peace in Chile (COPACHI), dedicated to give legal support to the politically persecuted, facilitating their departure from the country, providing abroad the first real information on the repression, and developing a series of support programs for those who remained in Chile. After its dissolution due to pressure from General Pinochet, the Catholic Church created the Vicarage of Solidarity (Cruz Contreras & Ramírez, 2018)

2023.06.03 00:22 BusinessKnight0517 [EVENT] Building Up the Border
Traditionally, for the last several hundred years, the border between England and Scotland was a permeable place. Border Reivers
, as they were known, infested these lands and raided their neighbors with impunity. Usually this resulted in property theft, the stealing of cattle from the open moors, and even kidnappings for ransom. To many raiders, it didn't matter if their victim was even from the same country as there were - what mattered was the booty, and the lack of any royal authority's attempts to regulate the issue.
That was (hopefully) about to change from the English perspective. Taking a page from the England of old under Alfred the Great and other Saxon rulers, the Duke of Buckingham had devised a revival of the old Burh
system, turning the areas nearest Scotland into an area capable of policing the attempts at raids, hopefully effectively responding to these small groups, but also with the added secondary benefits of slowing any larger force coming south while also acting as a way to exercise royal control over this area better than in the past.
To that end, the following provinces would have their central towns/castles fortified and organized in an attempt to always be on guard by having these levies trained and ready for actions close to the border at all times. These town and castle locations were also chosen because forces could effectively respond from these castles to threats within about 20 miles, with many of these castles overlapping in their range (for example, the distance from Maryport to Newcastle is approximately over 80 miles, meaning each of the 10 provinces have good overlap with at least one other). Berwick-upon-Tweed
- Planned to refurbish the walls as necessary and create ramparts, as well as some infrastructure added to be the eastern border defense administration center. If possible, it would also be ideal to add a watchtower overlooking the sea near the Berwick Beach cliffs. Amble
- Add basic fortifications/defenses to the town. Barrowburn
- Fortify the hamlet with some basic defenses. Carlisle
- Refurbish the walls, create ramparts and infrastructure for a western border defense administration. Maryport
- Fortify castle hill and add a watchtower where the old roman watchtower stood overlooking both the fort and the sea. Egremont
- Rebuild and modernize the old Norman castle to fortify the area. Kendal
- Refurbish Kendal Castle. Penrith
- Refurbish Penrith Castle. Consett
- Plans to build fortifications in the Pennines near the town. Newcastle
- Planned to refurbish the stone wall surrounding the city and make it an area of administration for border defense as the southern command, and to create ramparts. The Tynemouth would also be fortified with a castle/watchtowers to protect the sea/Tyne from enemy naval invasions.
Existing structures and local materials were to be used before importing materials, but the Lord Steward is open to all options for this venture. The plan would also include the creation of a courier and watch system between these provinces to help warn/defend against Scottish reivers or invasion. These roads should be inspected for maintenance needs to ensure the ease of travel for local forces and couriers.
The 10 provinces above are to be foritfied, and the goal is to slow any potential Scottish invasion until the main defense force from England arrives, or to empower local garrisons to ward off any border raids with minimal southern assistance. The administrative centers would act as extensions of royal authority, and regularly remain in communication with the provinces in the border area to ensure safety in these regions through the use of a robust courier system and well-maintained roads.
Costs estimates are requested so construction can begin.

QNA Reminder: Giveaway:
- Could Clan member’s name we see in battle be a different color? - I like this idea to quickly identify. We are brainstorming ideas for more clan features for our clan intuition next year.
- Any plans for Equipment 2.0? - Plans no, Discussion yes. Such as the equipment depo from PC.
- Field Mods? - Certain a great idea. Giving players more options. Giving the option to swap consumables before a match starts. This isn't a no, but there are no current plans.
- I miss the old music and sounds, any plans to maybe to have them back for the 10th anniversary? - No current plans, as sounds are quite memory intensive. To add a duplicate set of audio would add a lot to your storage. We are thinking about early game stuff like that for the anniversary though.
- Update on CW Medal? - See above.
- Metal slug colab? - To my knowledge that's a more niche franchise. It does fall into the same discussion about licensing.
- Are there still plans to add more tutorials or in-game wikipedias? Loading screen tips? - Due to how games are nowadays, loading times are fast. As for Tutorials, stay tuned very soon for something in this season.
- Update CW Module prices? - We do have an active investigation. No update to share publicly right now.
- Bigger maps for 8-10? - We had the CW maps that used to be part of them, but due to feedback they didnt work as well.
- Can you add a mode where there isn't sixth sense? - That could be interesting.
- Community Map Event battles? - Yes, stay tuned.
- Update on ranked battles? - This is part of clan support initiatives planned for next year.
- Friendly fire for custom games? - Yes we can look into it, but right now custom games right now are a low priority.
- Option to make spectators see enemy tanks or not. - similar answer to the previous question.
- Will we ever see PC added? - As you saw in the trailer, the Nelelburg map is something from PC. Recently we worked out a better process for porting maps from PC. The answer to your question is yes.
- Still didn't think of a good way to do giveaways… mostly cause i've been busy. So ill just keep doing it the same way, until I think of something better. Ask the question you put on the forum and the #.
- New Season, new Pass to give away. Another Tank as well, how about the Atomic Centurion.
- Giveaway based on StreamQna questions.
- Will need you to message me your GT and console if I contact you.

- Will be picking the winners late Sunday
2023.06.02 21:24 Key_Pair7089 Chemical burn in my eye after extensions
I got lash extensions for the first time and I had them taken off bc they were not feeling good. The bottom of my eye is red and it seems like I have a chemical burn. I have lumify drops that help w the redness and I’ve been doing a cold compress. I have an event to go to tonight and I was wondering if it is safe to wear eye makeup (just eyeshadow and mascara)? Or if I should avoid it?

2023.06.02 20:43 Repulsive_Sweet8543 Lash lift didn't lift at all - what should I do?
So for some background: I have given myself a couple DIY lash lifts and they've come out quite well. Then, I went back to lash extensions for a few months and ultimately decided to remove them a week ago. The place I got them removed at was not the same place I got my lash extensions from. It's much closer than the extensions place and I saw on their site that they offered lash lifts, which my former lash tech did not offer. Since I didn't have the lash lift kit anymore and I am moving soon and don't want to buy more stuff just to pack it away, I asked them when they would recommend me coming back in for a lift. They told me to wait a week for the health of my lashes.
Well, I went back today and the lash lift was ... disappointing. There's no difference at all. It was $80. The kits from Amazon are like $25. When the woman gave me the hand-held mirror I just thought it was the angle or something, and I had to go to work and just had to get out on the road. I always tip and today was no exception, but now I'm just kicking myself for tipping for this quality of service. I did a much better job at home. It sucks because she posted some nice transformations on IG, so I don't think she's a bad tech - but I'm just so bummed. I don't know if I should complain to the business/manager and try to get my money back? Is it too late for that? I would hate for it to negatively affect her because she was really nice and seems to get good results on others (I also suck at confrontation sjkldfjislfjd). So I'm wondering if it's just me/my lashes? Could the lash extension removal cause something like this? But then again, I also had lash extensions removed before I did my own lash lifts with no issue. ... and if she is a good tech, how did she not notice that the lift didn't lift? I could try asking them to fix it, but I don't think you're supposed to get a lift so soon after your last.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated (':

2023.06.02 20:37 Limp_Television_5683 Eyelash extensions fall out 80% by 3 weeks... why?
I've been getting fills every 3 weeks since March. My eyelash tech says my lashes are strong and healthy, with no buildup, and I commented how I don't rub/pick at my eyes or shower 2 days after my extensions are done. We are both stumped why they are falling out so much after 3 weeks.
My eyelashes aren't shedding, the extensions are just falling off. I suggested maybe it was because my eyes are greasy/hooded. Does anyone know why? My sister's eyelash extensions are full for 6 weeks before she needs fills and she sees the same tech.

I feel like something is off with her lash extensions and I want to give her feedback that she can take back to her tech (the tech is in training) these are her lashes brushed in the AM. She says they feel somewhat heavy (this is 2 days after application. I think they tried to save time by using fans that were maybe too big and I think she has visible gaps already.

Hear me out. All sons, who lived normal lives and had normal jobs and responsibilities. No obsession with designer bags and lashes and hair extensions and Instagram. Would we still have the twirling photos and videos? Her grid is starting to look like Ashely’s…

2023.06.02 14:24 Virtual_Tadpole9821 A BL fan's guide to visiting Thailand
There's been much talk about BL's potential as a driver of tourism. And it's evident, as some of you have shared your stories here in this sub, while others have asked for help planning upcoming trips. But there still appears to be a lack of easily accessible information for people visiting Thailand for the BL. Here's an attempt to remedy that, with this guide to visiting Thailand for BL fans. I've taken the liberty to incorporate suggestions from several previous threads here, as well as various other sources, so thank you to everyone who's contributed to the discussion.
First things first
This will only touch on things specifically of interest to BL fans. For the other aspects of your trip, including most basic planning stuff, please consult the usual travel resources.
That said, firstly you'll want to consider the purpose of your trip, and how much of it you want to dedicate to BL stuff. Do you just want a regular vacation, with a side stop for some merch, or are you here to relive the all the scenes from your favourite BLs? It's very possible to come up with a weeks-long itinerary of nothing but BL locations, and you could spend as much time mall-hopping to catch artist appearances, but Thailand also has a lot of other things to experience, whether you want to stick to the major attractions or go off the beaten track. It's all up to you.
Also, this probably goes without saying, but if you want to attend a specific event, be sure to plan around it and make travel arrangements accordingly. Concerts and fan meetings usually have tickets go on sale a couple of months in advance at most, so you'll want to have flexible options if you book your travel and accommodation before then.
Most of the BL-related things you can do will be concentrated in Bangkok
, so it's where this guide will be mainly focused, but there are also several provincial locations
that have featured in BL, especially Chiang Mai
and Chiang Rai
in the north and Phuket
in the south, all of which are major tourist destinations in their own right. Series have also spent time at plenty of beaches and resorts (particularly around Hua Hin
and several towns in Chonburi province
) as well as other popular excursions, most of which are short trips from Bangkok. Further out are the island resorts of Koh Samet
, Koh Tao
and Koh Lanta
. The north-east Isan
locations are rather off the tourist trail, but could well be worth the experience if that's your style of travel.
Arriving in Bangkok, one of the first things you'll notice as a fan of Thai BL (or Thai dramas in general) is that you're surrounded by familiar faces everywhere, on banners and billboards and the back of tuk-tuks
. Although BL actors aren't that well known among the general public (a surprise to some), the better known ones have a ton of brand endorsements and appear in ads for all sorts of products. Even if you're not planning your trip around BL, spotting actors you know in ads and fan projects
can be an entertaining pastime.
Head into a 7-Eleven
and you're pretty much guaranteed to see faces you recognize, perhaps on products you're already familiar with from all those series sponsorships and product placements. If the advertising worked and you're dying to know what that bottled green tea or that seaweed snack tastes like, this is your chance to give them a try.
Speaking of tasting, you'll probably be sampling plenty of Thai food while here, so why not include some of the food and drink items
from the series you remember, be it som tam from What Zabb Man
, the traditional desserts from UWMA, or the famous pink milk, known here as nom yen?
Meanwhile, if taking public transport, spend some time watching the people and see how BL imitates real life. Do you recognize the colours of the school uniforms
? Or the university students in their white shirts and black slacks? You might even come across some engineering students in their workshop overshirts.
If you miss hearing the Raikantopeni disclaimer at the beginning of shows, be sure to turn on the TV to catch it as they air live. Be aware though that following shows in Thailand will be more difficult than at home, as they won't have subtitles on TV or on most local streaming services, so you'll likely need a VPN.
Merch stores & fan hangouts
This might be a bit of a letdown, but apart from GMMTV's, there aren't really any physical stores for official merchandise. But since you'll be in the country, you could check with your accommodation to see if they can arrange to accept local package deliveries for you, so you can place some online orders and avoid the international shipping fees. Be sure to check the processing and delivery times - this might be tricky (and won't work with pre-orders, only in-stock items).
GMMTV's shop is not a traditional giftshop as one might assume, but more like a kiosk at their office on the 30th floor of the GMM Grammy Place
building - there's just a small product display and a cashier window. Apart from buying products, there's a good chance of running into some actors when visiting, though you're not allowed to linger and there's nowhere to hang out apart from some cafés on the ground floor. You will likely spot some fan-project displays (as mentioned above) outside and in the building, and the cafés will often have cup-sleeve giveaways by fans. Here's a very helpful guide by u/snuffles005
: How to visit the GMMTV building and shop
Elsewhere, there's Wab Cafe' and Friends
, by the Studio Wabi Sabi people. It's a café, so you'll be buying drinks there rather than merch, but it's very much a space created for fans, and there will often be something going on like fan projects and giveaways, or maybe mini-events with actors making an appearance. It's in RCA, Bangkok's main clubbing neighbourhood (and home to studios where many productions hold their workshops), which takes a bit of an effort to get to, but it's also probably the most dedicated hangout space for BL fans there is.
From Star Hunter, there's Hunter Village
, a studio space (mostly used for dance classes) in MBK Center, one of Bangkok's most popular malls. It's a mostly open space, so you'll be able to see if there's someone coming in or something going on, but I'm not sure if it's really somewhere you can hang out at.
Other than that, quite a few actors have their own cafés or some other business, which you might want to visit to support them directly. Clothing and fashion items (perhaps from brands with your faves as presenters) may also be something you'd want to go shopping for.
For manga and anime (including BL/yaoi) there's an Animate
store (the specialty chain from Japan), also at MBK Center. In addition to imported works, they also have an extensive Thai section, with both translated and original works.
If you want to observe the Thai novel scene, just walk into any major Thai book store, where you'll likely find rows, maybe entire shelves, of BL novels, prominently displayed - BL has very much gone mainstream in the Thai publishing industry. You'll also find glossy magazines featuring actor photoshoots here. You'll have less luck finding English translations, though, as most translated works are e-book only. For English-language (and Japanese) books in general, your best bet is Books Kinokuniya
. They do have Japanese and Chinese translations of some Thai BL novels, as well as the English manga versions of SOTUS
and Manner of Death
, at international prices.
Seeing actors up close (or at a distance) in real life will probably be the BL highlight of your trip for many of you. And unless you're ultra specific as to whom you want to see, there are ample opportunities to catch these actor appearances.
The biggest experiences will of course be the major events - concerts, fan meetings, and the like
- that you'll have to buy tickets for. As mentioned above, you'll have to plan around them if you want to attend (which also limits how long you can plan in advance), and make sure to actually get those tickets. They're usually announced very publicly, so it's hard to miss them if you follow the usual news update channels. If you're around when one takes place but can't attend, it can still be worth dropping by if you want to get hold of the merch or just check out the crowds.
For more casual fans, you'll still have plenty of chance to see actors at smaller events, as there's pretty much always something happening somewhere, though there might not be much choice on who you get to see. These events vary a lot in scale, and can be anything from product launches to movie premieres
. Most artist's agencies will announce them on their social media channels, usually on a weekly basis, and fan accounts may help share and/or translate them. You'll have to follow them to keep updated.
Most of these events will be held in Bangkok's plethora of malls. The biggest ones are mostly lined along the BTS Skytrain's Sukhumvit Line, so if you plan to do a lot of mall-hopping, whether for events or just shopping, consider getting accommodation with easy access to the BTS for convenience. Here's a great post by u/BumblingWombat
that describes the experience in detail: What it's like to go to BL events in Thailand
(Oh yeah, there are also top-spender events, which I won't go into, as I don't know anything about them. Those who're aiming for them probably won't need this guide anyway.)
Aside from these specific events, there are also annual book fairs that are partially or directly BL-related, where actors from various agencies may make appearances. The mainstream National Book Fair and Book Expo
are usually held at the beginning of April and some time in October. Since last year, BL novels and publishers have had a large presence there, and GMMTV actors made daily appearances with fan gatherings in the car park. There are also smaller book fairs directly focusing on BL: Y Book Fair
in July, and International Novel Festival
at the end of November. They also feature actor appearances, but can also be worth seeing just for the atmosphere if you're interested in experiencing the literary BL scene here.
On the other hand, to experience more of the community side of the fandom, you might want to check out some fan-held events, such as the birthday projects
that fan clubs often do, which may be in the form of café galleries or mini-gatherings. Info will mostly be on Twitter, though it may not be readily translated.
Visiting filming locations
If BL inspired you to make the trip to Thailand, no doubt you'd be interested in visiting some of the filming locations yourself. But while some of them are traditional tourist attractions in their own right, most aren't normally on the radar for general visitors, so it'll take a bit of investment (in time and travel) to include them in your trip.
If there's a single most iconic location to recommend, it must be the Rama VIII Bridge
over the Chao Phraya River, which shows up in more BLs than anywhere else. So far, it's been seen in SOTUS
, SOTUS S
, Gen Y
, Tonhon Chonlatee
, I Promised You the Moon
, My Ride
, Cutie Pie
, Even Sun
, 2 Moons: The Ambassador
, and Boyband
. It's not really a tourist attraction, but it's a major landmark of modern Bangkok that everyone knows, and isn't too hard to get to. It's a bit of a walk (some 15 minutes, or just take a tuk-tuk) from either the Phra Athit or Thewet Pier if you're coming from the main riverside attractions and use the Chao Phraya Express (or Tourist) Boat. If you're into financial history, the Bank of Thailand Learning Center and museum is right next to the bridge. Otherwise, Suan Luang Rama VIII Park by its base is also nice, and also a filming location. The bridge itself is most photogenic at night, but make sure you have transport back if you stay late. Consider one of those dinner cruises if you want to experience it from the same angles as KinnPorsche
and Cutie Pie
For other locations, you'll need to do some research. If there's a specific series you want to follow, try searching to see if someone has already compiled a list of locations, which is likely the case for the more popular series. Most info will be on Tumblr or Twitter.
Filming locations may be public places, shops and businesses, private establishments, or purpose-built or converted studios, so remember to think of their ability to welcome visitors. Dress appropriately for the venue, take care to respect their regular functions, and be considerate to other people. Some of the most familiar locations are university campuses
, and the grounds will generally be open to the public, but they're not usually equipped to deal with large numbers of visitors. So if you do visit, have fun reliving those memorable scenes but make sure not to disturb the real students who are there for class. Meanwhile, cafés, bars and restaurants
would surely welcome your patronage, but please do not snoop around private offices or people's homes. It all boils down to following common sense, really.
A lot of the locations will be quite spread out and some distance away from downtown, so you'll have to plan carefully if you want to hit more than a few. You might want to hire transport for the day, but also take the traffic into consideration.
If you've always wanted to sleep in the same room that your favourite characters lived in (or at least an identical one), you might be in luck. Some of the apartment locations
may have rooms available for daily renting, so check with them. As above, though, their location can be rather inconvenient transport-wise. On the other hand, you might want to opt for the hotels and resorts
that featured as locations, which will be better equipped with tourist facilities.
For houses specifically, I have a post on The houses of Thai BL
. Most of them are private property rented out as studios, but some will be happy to accept visitors (for a fee) on their off days. Contact their management to see if a something can be arranged. Or if you're serious about it and ready to pay, just rent the place at full price for your own personal photoshoot. If you try it either way, do let us know how it turns out. On the other hand, Wawa House
(To Sir, With Love
) has a café for visitors, Slōlē
, Bite Me
, The Tuxedo
, The Eclipse
) is a real-life café when not filming, and Red Brick Kitchen
, War of Y
) features a chef's table dining experience (reservations only, 4 persons minimum).
If you're just looking for some usual attractions that happen to have BL appearances as a bonus, here are a few (very non-exhaustive) suggestions for Greater Bangkok:

While Bangkok's malls are very much major attractions by themselves, I didn't include them as their appearances are quite too numerous to list.
Outside of Bangkok, each series will mostly feature locations relatively near each other (except Cupid's Last Wish
, which went all over the country), so I'll just list the series by destination without going into each location's detail.

Further resources & suggestions
The Let's Talk BL podcast hosts talked about their experience in Thailand last year, covering a lot of the above points over several episodes at the beginning of season 3. Be sure to check them out if you want all the details, especially S3 EP3: Tips & Tricks for the perfect BL experience in Bangkok
. Some of their main tips that I didn't mention above are not to overstretch yourself trying to go to everything, and to use a map to plan your days. Colourme-feral on Tumblr
has an incredible Google Map
that plots locations from several series, and more in their blog, which a lot of the above is sourced from. For Bad Buddy
specifically, Telomeke-bbs on Tumblr
has a series of posts that analyse the locations at an insane level of detail.
I'm sure I haven't covered nearly everything in this post, so please feel free to add your suggestions in the comments. (I'll try to expand the locations list as I get around to digging for more series.) If you have questions or need help identifying a specific location, feel free to ask! (Though no guarantees there.)
For full disclosure, I'm receiving no compensation whatsoever for writing this. Any biases or omissions are purely unintentional.
