The-Art-Of-Shopping

Something to confess on a Monday evening

I used to run an art shop for a very long time. It was fairly popular, granted it wasn’t too popular but it was certainly well-known. I made it clear that I could reject commissions for any reason, which I had occasionally done during my time on FR. For one, I rarely accepted customers who had been known to pay and tip poorly. Second, as a dysphoric and gender critical lesbian, I made it a personal preference to not draw transgender/nonbinary dragons or OCs.

When rejecting commissions that fell into these categories, I always informed the user that my rejection came down to “time and the complexity of the dragon/OC”, and I sent my best wishes to them. For my entire year running the art shop, I never encountered a single problem doing this. It was around the end of the year, however, when I had a very slim encounter with a specific customer. I don’t want to give out his name, so I’ll call him M.

At first, M requested me to draw his progenitor. This was a dragon with a very complex skin that was dressed in layers of silks and other apparel. I was completely fine with this, despite the complexity of the project, so he sent his payment upfront. One day later, before I started on his commission, he requested if I could change to another dragon. This dragon was supposed to be “herself”, a self-described transgendered dragon which unfortunately happened to be noticeably less complex than his progenitor. I lied and said that I had already started on his first dragon, to which he replied with something along the lines of “I’ll pay for the work you did on the first one, could you work on my second one first” (this was obviously never going to happen). I said that I would finish his first dragon and I would consider doing his second dragon if I had the time. This made him slightly disappointed, nonetheless, but ultimately he agreed to my terms. I added his name to the wait list again for his second dragon and I continued with my day.

Time passed, and only one month after I finished his first commission I was set to work on his second commission. I sent a brief message to him informing him that I would not be able to work on his commission due to “personal household issues”, to which he said that he was fine waiting and that he was ready to pay for his commission upfront “whenever”.

Following that day, I decided to take a break from Flight Rising and close the shop until further notice. To this day, I still haven’t reopened my art shop.
