Profile updated as of:  June 6, 2017


My name is idreamofpie.  Welcome to my profile!

I'm quirky, a bit blunt, introverted, nerdy, romantic and sarcastic.  I love pie, and Eeyore is my spirit animal.

Honestly, I'm a bit weird.

Some people call me picky, and perhaps they're right.  I just know what I like, and I don't want to waste my time with things that annoy me.  Here's a good breakdown of my most and least favorite things:

Likes Dislikes
Characters that are: smart, decisive, honest,
flawed, confident, realistic, and just a little offbeat.
Characters that are: naive, indecisive, unrealistically
kind and self-sacrificing, full of double standards,
and/or too proud to be truthful.
Slice of life Characters with an overinflated sense of entitlement
Slow burn romance Rapist/Abuser-learns-to-love story dynamics
Fave tropes: Gender benders and contract
Least fave tropes: Amnesia and Instalove
Antiheroes that don't care about the rules -
anything goes
Idiotic noble sacrifice/Characters who don't fight for
what they want
Romance that's hindered by realistic internal 
character flaws
Misunderstandings that don't flow logically with the
plot or the characters/Lapses of logic in general
Female leads that initiate skinship Relationship maintenance (especially first loves)
Male leads that nuzzle. Dead-fish and bug-eye kisses
Blurred lines between good and evil Moral dilemmas in medical dramas or political
dramas with excessive beard-stroking
Eccentric male leads that grow on you Most melodramas with excessive crying
Cinematography that pulls you into the scene Second female leads that lose themselves in revenge
and petty hate
Memorable and evocative musical scores

Leads unable to see each other when they're right 
next to each other (She's right there! Just look! -.-)

I like to watch Contemporary Romance, Slice of Life and Psychological/Thriller dramas.  Sometimes I will watch a Sageuk, but I have to be in a certain mood.

Making Lists on MDL is one of my favorite things to do!  It's a bit of a sickness...  I do have a Black List of actors/actresses.

My Drama List is organized a bit differently. The On-Hold Dramas/Movies are things I plan to watch, but they aren't fully subbed/released yet. I just want to keep them on my radar for later.


A place for my current obsessions and my muses.  Right now, I'm all about:


[Check out my feed post here.] 


I accept friend requests!  However...I will only accept if we're talking in some way via messages/feeds/drama comment sections/forums.  In other words, if you're here to collect friends you'll never talk to or to spam me about funding a trip to South Korea to become an actress, please look elsewhere.  If I don't have any idea who you are, I won't accept the request.  All that being said, I'm a pretty nice person and kind of a dork, so go ahead and send me a note! :)
