awhile ago Lakota won one of my LJ mood icon auctions for a set of 25. she paid in full and all was well. i finally finished most of the icons and sent her what i had, she never responded. not even a "thank you" or a "i like them the way they are, please finish the other ones."
she just dropped off the face of the earth.
If Lakota ever commissions you, make sure you keep in contact with her or you may end up doing work for no reason. i still havent finished the rest of her moodicons. why should i? she kept me hanging forever.
