The E-mail I sent giving the details for the commission, just the top to show the date. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d1oyqry8zn477sh/screenshot-mail%20google%20com%202016-03-08%2001-22-11.png?dl=0

The note I sent on DA after I commented about not being on her commission list, and she asked me to note her the details cause she lost them. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3od1uvlmqjg0fxb/screenshot-www%20deviantart%20com%202016-03-08%2001-15-53.png?dl=0

Here is her public commission list, I feel obligated to also point out that it hasn't changed much since I was put on it, I think 1-2 names removed and 1-2 names crossed out. https://www.dropbox.com/s/c7jdqnol0h13f5u/screenshot-akili-amethyst%20deviantart%20com%202016-03-08%2001-17-21.png?dl=0

EXPLAIN: On April 8, 2013 I contributed to a RocketHub fundraiser started by Akili-Amethyst's boyfriend/manager. After I sent the details for the commission I wanted I waited and on one of her journals she mentioned the commissions and I asked if they were all listed, because mine wasn't on the list. So she said she didn't have the info and asked me to send it through a note. So I did. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3od1uvlmqjg0fxb/screenshot-www%20deviantart%20com%202016-03-08%2001-15-53.png?dl=0
As time goes on and I'm waiting I keep seeing a lot of art posted, but no commissions. I got worried so I kept checking. In the amount of time that I have been waiting she has completed less than a commission a month and only about 1 in 3 of them were ever listed on her commission list. It has gotten me fairly depressed and I finally decided to ask for a refund, I didn't expect to get one and may have come off a little harsh. Note chain read bottom to top. https://www.dropbox.com/s/us9uthyydstpwyx/screenshot-www%20deviantart%20com%202016-03-08%2002-25-35.png?dl=0
She hasn't responded to the last note, despite being active on DA, and I doubt she will. It seems that I don't want the art anymore, and she doesn't want to refund, so I guess it will end with her keeping the money and me posting this beware. I just wish I was the only one who had to wait all this time, for nothing, it hurts worse knowing that others are still waiting.

Howdy, you've left a third party's email uncensored in the large Rockethub campaign screencap. Could you please censor that properly?
