Sorry Paige I started this review and then hit the wrong button on my iPad and had to start again because I hit the wrong button.
I have not read the script or watched the movie of this. (I know.). I only know that Redmayne is in it and I cried during "Theory of Everything". So, it was nice to read this without anything attached.
I did not know that Tina and Queenie were sisters; I did not know that Tina wasn't that girls real name. Apparently the odd name thing continues on the other side of the pond, too. That's a chacteristic of JKR.
I like that teddy bear reference because it takes me back. I both a ftiend of mine, a hugger, a shirt that says, "I want to cuddle you so hard." Jon literally comes home and hugs me so hard I can't breathe. This reminded me SO much of that.
I like that, given this is the 1920s (I know stuff, okay? I just haven't seen it.) the one sister is focused on her career. The, oh, I don't even know what to call this - the old housewife mentality continued way past that, so well done, Tina.
The crush? Yeah, that's a cute sisterly thing. Maybe I should look into this "Fantastic Beasts" and grab dome cocoa. I have some, I think.
Author's Response: Nice to read this and not cry? :D Yep, JKR loves her "unique" names. I'd call myself Tina if my parents named me Porpentina too. It's old English for porcupine, for Merlin's sake. I remember it from Hamlet: Like quills upon the fretful porpentine. The actress who played Tina did a great job of making her determined to do her job and then determined to do what was right instead of "fretful." I think it helps that she's got her dad's (Sam Waterson from Law & Order) serious brown eyes.
Please do watch Fantastic Beasts if it's still in theaters, with or without cocoa, and thank you so much for your lovely review! :)

I read this last night and immediately got up and made myself some cocoa. It was very tasty but it only came from a pouch. I did add some milk and whipped cream to the cup though. That somehow made it more "real." i think Jake and Queenie are the cutest couple. Will we ever see them again or do they live on in our fantasies? Was is always illegal for Magical and Non-Majs to marry? Was it like that in Britain? For some reason this reminded me of my own parents who were a "mixed" marriage in the 50s. I think I would've chosen pie over strudel--warm with ice cream if possible. I wonder if we'll see a whole new generation of Potter stories. You will be at the forefront.
Author's Response: Fantastic Beasts is set to be a five film series, so we should see Jacob and Queenie again. I agree, they're the cutest. LOL at you wanting cocoa after reading. Absolutely, this is a "mixed" couple. It wasn't illegal in the UK, which is why Newt called it "backwards" in the film. It's like fashions. It takes the US a while to catch up with Europe. :D
