In honour of it being International Left Handers Day, I want to highlight the fact that two out of the four Scorpius actors have been left handed : ) So, as a proud left hander myself, I give you… left handed Scorpius!
Just imagine it though, Scorpius all ink stained and stressed over yet another smudged essay. He uses that smudge-removing spell so often that Albus teases him about saying it in his sleep. Scorpius isn’t convinced he doesn’t.
His dad tries to help by sending him a near constant supply of different quick drying inks but none of them work brilliantly. It seems nothing is as quick as Scorpius writing when he’s in full essay mode. Draco vows to find something that’ll work, even if he has to invent it himself.
Then there’s Albus. Poor Albus. He got so many stray elbows that first week of Hogwarts. There were a lot of confused smiles and awkward silent conversations between the two of them in class before he realised Scorpius wasn’t constantly trying to get his attention. That’s why these days you’ll usually find Scorpius on Albus’s left side. It’s made life that little bit easier for them.
Overwriter: When you write with the hand restive above the line of text you’re writing. This usually leads to the famous “hook hand” position that looks pretty weird, and is most likely bad for your wrist in the long term.
Side writer: The most common one for those who havent considered adjusting their position when writing left handed. Usually causes smearing if you use a pencil with a soft lead or a ink pen with slow drying ink.
Under writer: This one is often the most recommended position for left handed, but I quite do not agree on that. I only under write when I use flex nibs or brush pens for calligraphy. For everyday writing I would not be able to underwrite for longer periods. But it also depends on how you grip the pen.
ALSO FUN FACT TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL LEFT-HANDERS DAY!!!! August 13th! HELL YEAH! What a convenient day to answer this ask!
