So, anyway, it's been... 7 or 8 months? Either way, I'm really frustrated. If you look at the last post she offered all of these extra commissions to make up for the communication problem, which was nice of her and everything, but I probably would've cared one way or the other about them as long as I just got the icon I paid for. She's posted on FA recently, but hasn't messaged me at all, blah blah blah.
I'd be really happy with just a refund at this point, even though still getting my icon would be really great, because from the sketch she showed me it looked really cute. I'm really sad about it.
So. Yeah. I don't know what to do about it - I guess there isn't much I can do. As much as I hate to say it about anyone, I'd probably advise not commissioning her if she ever offers commissions again. It's not JUST the waiting thing, even though I do think it's been a little bit long for a icon, it's just really sort of frustrating to be promised things and then not even contacted with updates or anything like that. It especially stinks because she seemed really nice every time she DID actually contact me, and I don't want to say unkind things about anyone, but it's sort of unfair.
