s/maybe i ain't used to maybes

and i don't go to sleep to dream | Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them | Queenie-centric

t: and i don't go to sleep to dream
f: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
c: Queenie & Tina
r/wc: G/3401
s: [post movie] Tina taps Queenie’s shoulder, firm, three quick fingertip raps. “Queenie.” Her tone is soft, but beneath it there’s the undercurrent of we’ve talked about this before.
n: [Title from Sleep To Dream by Fiona Apple.] I've taken a few months out of writing because my brain's been not doing the thing, but have a huge soft spot for this film and I wanted to write about Queenie and Tina, because, darlings. This is set post-movie, so it'll make more sense if you've seen it, though nothing terribly plot-y happens, it's more about emotions. I did do some 1920s research, though not that much, and hopefully I've caught any Britishisms that crept in. Lastly, I love that the sisters are almost definitely canonically Jewish, so I've tried to slip that in around the edges; I hope it's not too jarring or inaccurate, please let me know if I should edit anything.
