She was offering decently priced commissions and my best friend was moving away that May. As a gift, I wanted to get him an icon for FA since he didn't have one. She agreed by email to have it done by 11/30/2011. When she produced nothing, I had assumed it was due to the holidays and waited. By April 2012, I knew something was wrong and she wasn't responding to my emails although her profile says she responds to emails NOT notes. I finally got a response from her via FA Notes with a promise that she'll finish it soon. The sketch she provided was poorly done, but I continued to give her the benefit of the doubt. A sketch is a sketch, it is a rough draft. I thought she would clean it up a little bit. A year later and she finally responds to another note from me in May 2013. She apologized and promised it was priority and offered a refund. The commission was $7.50, but I paid $15 since she was so sweet. I figured getting a full refund ($15) would be a hassle, especially since she constantly posts journals complaining about her money problems and asking for donations so she can afford to eat that day (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11073414/). I told her I just wanted the icon and sent her the information again in May. It is now August and she isn't responding again, yet she posts other commissions online and even more journals complaining about money.
Edit: She heard about me trying to post on A_B and contacted me. She wanted to give me half a refund or live stream a sketch for me. I told her I didn't want anything, the damage was already done. She refunded half anyway and refunded everyone else's commissions as well claim that she was quitting commission work.
Current Mood: Nyah Nyah!
