Sesame Noodles with Swiss Chard and Chicken Recipe on Food52
Adapted from a recipe in Chrissy Teigen's cookbook Cravings.

I've added a heap of Swiss chard to make this more of a stand-alone dish, but know that it's optional or replaceable—spinach, shredded cabbage or romaine might be nice as would julienned carrots or sweet potatoes.

Recipe for one:
113g chicken breast
113g fettuccine
150g Swiss chard

2T peanut oil
2T tahini
1.5T soy sauce
1T red wine vinegar
1t sesame oil
1t honey
1t chili oil (maybe more sesame oil with sambal olek to sub)
0.25t cayenne pepper
half garlic clove, minced

3 scallions, thinly sliced.

Any Instrument - Chapter 1 - dicta_contrion - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Draco Malfoy wouldn't go back to England for anything less than an exceptional case. Being asked to figure out why Harry Potter can't control his magic might be exceptional enough to qualify.

|| Pretty good slow build fic with good plot development. There's a ridiculously hot scene rife with sexual tension were they barely even touch which only makes it even hotter.

Charred Broccoli and Avocado Salad Recipe - Chocolate & Zucchini
Amazingly delicious salad. Roasted broccoli for half the time at 450F.

Would try more tahini next time and maybe a hint of sesame oil to up the aroma.

Definitely a make-again dish.

AT THE SAME STARS - Chapter 1 - spicyshimmy - Star Trek, Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
First Officer Spock of the USS Enterprise is part of the away team that discovers the survivors of Tarsus IV. Captain Pike assigns him to the curious case of James Tiberius Kirk, who steals one of Spock's sweaters. There were no sufficient Vulcan poetics to describe the emptiness of the colony as it was found on the morning of stardate 2249.43. The fully-completed residential sector was neither ugly nor beautiful but simply remote; a hollow landscape of metal alloys and sensible architecture, with determined vegetation growing alongside the support beams. They did not flower.

|| This is a really good AU where Spock and Kirk take about fifty million years to get together, mostly because it takes about thirty million years for Spock to buy a clue about his and Kirk's feelings for one another.

Harry, Draco, and Hermione go to a pub. Harry, Draco, and Pansy go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Pansy, and Hermione go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Hermione and Ron go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Hermione, Ron, and Pansy―you guessed it―go to a pub. I could go on. In fact, I did. Harry, Draco, Hermione, Pansy, Ron, Blaise, Luna, Goyle, Neville, and Theodore Nott go to a pub. In various combinations.

He Who Must Not Be Normal - lettered - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Potter has fame and fortune and posh clothes and all he wants is a simple life. Draco has a flat and a cat and a steady job and all he wants is a complicated life. Which makes you think this story has something exciting like body-swapping, but it doesn’t. Instead it has Indian takeaway and a blue jumper and people wanting a whole lot of what they can’t have, discovering themselves as they discover each other.

|| I don't know what it is about HP fandom and in particular the Harry/Draco ship, but there's some stunning introspective, dark-toned fic written in it, like hollycomb's. This is one of them, but ends on a much more uplifting note. There is sex in here, but it's not sex for sex's sake, it's sex for the purposes of sketching out Harry and Draco's demons. I love the vein of uneasiness running throughout and the nuanced characterization. lettered has a very fine way of narrating through Draco's voice.

Season of Courtship - Chapter 1 - Elizabeth (anghraine) - Lady Susan, Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen [Archive of Our Own]
Darcy and Elizabeth become better acquainted over the course of their engagement.

|| Excellent post-canon fic that's engrossing, humourous, sweet, and touching by turns. There's an amusing interlude where Darcy, Bingley, Jane, and Elizabeth get The Talk (separately) and some delightful Darcy family intrigue/drama.

She shot the bloody dog and she would do it a thousand times over.

|| How does this author jam so much into 640 words? I went from laughing with tears in my eyes to clutching my heart with tears in my eyes within the span of seconds. A really marvelous piece of writing that does a deep dive into Roxy's character and her friendship with Eggsy without breaking a sweat.

15-Minute Hot Oil Noodles (You Po Mian) - The Woks of Life
The gist of the dish: Cook noodles and veg. Put in bowl with soy sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes, raw minced garlic, scallion, and cilantro. Pour hot oil over noodles. Mix. Eat.

Would increase the amount of vinegar a lot more (2t at least). Added browned Italian sausage and would do again with minced pork or omit it altogether. The minced garlic, cilantro, and scallions really make the dish, but the garlic is STRONG. Would scale back oil to 2 T next time and the amount of noodles. Increase veg for sure.

Takes more like 30 minutes with all the veg and herb washing and prep you have to do.

Within His Power - Chapter 1 - NoBezel - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
The first day of Stiles' senior year, Derek Hale is at his school. Derek Hale, brother of Governor Laura Hale, and the quintessential LP—a marvel of genetic, and cybernetic, engineering. There is only one reason an LP of Derek's age and status comes to a high school like Hale Prep: mate hunting.

Hyperactive, unsequenced, anti-Bite, teen boys do not become arm candy of the rich and wolfy. Stiles knows he has no chance; he knows he doesn't want one. But when Derek Hale declares his intent to make Stiles his mate, the vow he makes to Stiles privately isn't one of love; it's one of power, money, and influence. Privileges the unsequenced don't dream of in Stiles' world. It's more than Stiles can resist.

But that doesn't mean he can't try.

|| Some really good and engrossing world-building in this fic. The end seemed a bit rushed and I would have liked a bit more resolution, but that doesn't detract from the overall readability.

United States v. Barnes, 617 F. Supp. 2d 143 (D.D.C. 2015) - Chapter 1 - fallingvoices, radialarch - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Courtroom drama of the trial of one James Buchanan Barnes for high treason and 63 counts of murder.


Seriously though, suspend your law goggles, and read this fic. Really moving fic that uses the multimedia method, i.e., tweets, texts, newspaper articles, etc., to flesh out a fantastic story.
