This story is beyond cute. It was absolutely amazing and unlike any other oneshot that I've ever read. I just love how all the quirks first appear as criticism, but slowly, the narrator turns it into something that she loves about him. Fantastic job on this!

I really thought this was beautifully written. Argiston and Mae have such a cute relationship, and I could picture it all in my head. Awesome job!

I want a guy like Argiston for my boyfriend! He is the best boyfriend ever! :D:D:D:D
Okay. Enough fan-girling.
This is lovely. Well-written, funny, adorable, sweet, tugs-at-the-heartstrings -
Still rambling. Okay. *breathe*
You are obviously great at crafting a story that readers will love to read and will probably return to read later when they need something sweet and adorable. Mae&Argiston are a sweet, adorable couple (clearly), and better get married because I doubt there is more than one love like that in someone's life.
From a technical perspective, I didn't see any prominent spelling/grammatical errors, which is exciting in itself, *yay* and the way you split everything up added to the story. It's like a quirky slice of someone's life, or maybe a diary (or a list *wink*) and it's so fun to read in that way.
Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. It needs more reviews (like a lot of great stories on this site) so I'm just giving you what you deserve. LOVED THIS!

I really liked this piece. :) I love her sarcastic personality and how she's reluctantly showing the mushy side of her. And Argiston is a darling. Nice job!

Awwww! I'd love to see what would happen if Argiston actually read this list, that would be hilarious.

Oh the ending just bit my heart and tore it to pieces but I'm still smiling like an idiot so stop stop this oneshot is too pretty to read and oh my god you are a genius

Bahaha! This is absolutely adorable. I love how unique this story is, because it doesn't necessarily have a clear plot, but it's still so absorbing and fun to read. I love the relationship between Mae and Argiston, because it just seems so real. They each have their own quirks and subtleties that make them each special in their own ways. I love love love this one-shot, and I hope you'll continue to write more in the future! :)

Hi! I'm the one-shot judge for A Drop of Romeo, which is a website that reviews the best stories on FictionPress and Of Lists & Argyle Sweaters has been added to the site! Here's the review for your story:
There is so, so much I can say about this one-shot. It's original, it's sweet, it's quirky. It's different from other one-shots in that there is no plot. It's simply a list that a girl, Mae, made of the shortcomings she's discovered in her boyfriend, Argiston. As the list goes on, though, it seems that his shortcomings are more like endearing, almost cute, qualities, and Mae's list is more of an argument to herself in the hopes of persuading herself out of loving him.
Mae offers an explanation after each item on the list, usually involving an example of a situation. These really help the reader get a feel for Argiston's personality, and also Mae's. Argiston is that perfect guy that only exists in stories-he's adorable, funny, and hot. And he loves Mae to no end. Mae is that girl I think a lot of us are-insecure (though she doesn't need to be), sarcastic, and maybe a bit cynical. She's incredibly relatable and also likable.
Although this one-shot is, on the surface, light and fluffy, and it is, it also hold deeper meanings. Mae is scared to love Argiston so much, but she can't help it. Even his bad qualities are super cute!
Overall, this story is sweet, funny, and grammatically correct! I didn't find many mistakes; grammar, spelling, or otherwise. So, if you find yourself with a little time, I highly recommend Of Lists and Argyle Sweaters-you won't regret it!

She is absolutely hilarious and I love her character. Argiston, too.
So, I like it :) Keep writing.

Awww. I loved it. It was fresh, and funny, and I love how it seems like it's starting one way but then, well, it sort of turns into an ode to him, doesn't it? I love the reasons she lists and the different scenerios, as well as the voice of the character. It's really entertaining to read.

Why not argyle socks?
Albeit, while it is easier to picture (strictly pg-13 material I assure you) someone screwing in just their socks, it is not nearly as disturbingly hilarious of an image as someone screwing in an argyle sweater.
And, yes, I did just creep all over your profile page, but not creepily (to be completely contradictory), to see what else you had written.
I liked this one as well.

this was very clever, i liked the wry humor, sarcasm and spunk that mae has, but also her vulnerability and dependence on Argiston... good job, i REALLY love this fic!
