Hi, I'm Verity.

Here are some things you might like to know about me: Tea maniac. Crochet addict (particularly amigurumi). Writer of fan fiction (obviously; mostly I write about the Potterverse with a particularly focus on Snape & McGonagall, but there's some other stuff too) and other fiction (I'm Tea for Lupin on fictionpress.net, too). Massive Lord of the Rings nerd. Bread baker. SAHM to Pippin, wife to Tennant. Lapsed herbalist, slightly medievalist. Attempted veggie gardener. Wannabe librarian.

I'm tea_for_lupin on LiveJournal, if you want to say hi!

Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall are my OTP, but I quite like Snape and Hermione when it's well-written (that helps with everything, of course). Oh, and Snape and Remus Lupin, because messed up though that is, it's better than Lupin and Sirius Black.
