    Между question

    I knew this before but I can't quite remember.

    After Между when expressing "motion to in between", is it the geninitve case you use?

    No, that is expressing a location, I know that. I am talking about motion.

    Like, "I fell inbetween the chair and the table".

    "As in a motion to a position in between"

    The same

    Я упал между стулом и столом.

    Самолёт пролетел между облаком и тучей.

    Падать между стулом и столом на четверть опаснее чем между креслом и столом.

    I'm sure I've seen it with the genitive. Can you use the genitive with Между?

    Yes

    Проехать между (меж) деревьев.

    But imho you can only use it with plural.

    Упасть меж стульев.

    Maybe you confused it with среди? Cause that takes the genetive and means "in the middle of". But I don't think that works with motion... Я упал среди стола и стула?

    The original question was about "motion inbetween"

    Only when the objects are equable, like in the examples Alyer gave.
