me again! i saw reading (again) the new perfect chapter and i noticed that the computer's mouse is on the left side, is GS left-handed? idky but i find this so cute!! actually everything obout him i find cute... another thing i love about the new chap i the heart-warming feelings that momo, his mom and their home are giving away and i bet even HT likes that too, so different from his empty and cold house aaaah i'm reading too much into this again THX @OLD XIAN!!!
you have such an eye for details HOW i would have never noticed the mouse being on the left side!!
okay, so, it took me a bit to reply to you because im nothing if not thorough (well, more like obsessed with tiny and useless stuff, but ‘thorough’ sounds better) and i went back to reread everything, trying to pay attention to which hand the characters use the most, and it turns out that all the main four use the right one to hold their chopsticks
we’ve also seen zheng xi writing with his right hand, and both he tian and guan shan seem to favor that side to throw punches, so i think it’s pretty safe to say that they’re all right handed!!
which is actually a bit surprising to me?? i had completely forgot about those panels, so i spent all this time believing that he tian was a leftie, and i was debating on guan shan as well. in my defense, both he tian and guan shan use the left hand a lot (….this sounded better in my head……….), way more than jian yi and zheng xi: there are a lot of panels where he tian holds a cigarette with his left hand, and we see guan shan holding a spoon with that one too. they could both be ambidextrous, but i feel like that wasn’t really old xian’s intention and im just reading too much into things as usual: it’s more likely that they are right handed and not utterly incompetent with the left one (unlike me;;;;;;)
and this is already too long, but YES i absolutely agree with you on the heartwarming feeling that guan shan’s home and family give off, it’s the reason why i love guan shan’s relationship with his mom so much, because it’s just??? so playful and affectionate??? and i love how their house is small but full of things, unlike he tian’s apartment, which is huge but it’s all empty spaces and feels barely lived in. it makes me wonder if he tian will maybe feel……well, not envy exactly, but more like some kind of sadness, a mix of loss and longing for that particular warm that comes from the love of your family, and that he seems to have been missing for a while. thinking about this, im even more happy that he met guan shan: he tian is going to find his place beside guan shan and fit in his family and get all the love he deserves
