“When I was decommissioned, the second before it happened I just kept thinking "I really hope there’s someone there to wake me up again.” I just want to be a cop, man. I just want to be here. And then you woke me up. It was you. You were that person for me, John.“
“Dorian was, and always will be, a very special character in my heart. I really wanted to play him for five years. And it hurt when that was taken from me. It hurt bad… I feel like people really connected with that character… no one connected with him more than me.”
The theme for the second-annual AHFanCon is: “The Year is 2049”
So FOX continued to be a giant disappointment and canceled Almost Human - we’ll make Season 2 ourselves!
This year Almost Human FanCon (aka AH TumblrCon) will be held the weekend of February 27th to March 1st. Why was it moved up? This is the weekend before we are planning ourFinale Anniversary Mailout. Last year, “Straw Man” aired on March 3rd, so we want to bombard Warner Brothers with mail to celebrate that week and let them know fans are still interested in some kind of continuation.
What the heck is this?
Did you miss last year’s AHFanCon? It was a weekend of celebrating all things Almost Human, held entirely online (primarily tumblr). I hope the second will be bigger and better than ever!
Is there a schedule?
Not yet! But not to worry, there will be one put out about a week in advance of the festivities. YEP! Check it out! Here are some of the stuff you can expect:
Special Guest Google Hangouts (MX actor Darren E. Scott ( darrenescott ) + MX voice actor Joe Smith so far!)
Return of Art Jam, MX-Apocalypse, and Draw Something AH!
HECKUVALOT OF FUN!
So what can I do?
If you’d like to help organize, run a panel, volunteer, etc. please contact ahfancon (or send an email to justanotherDRN (at) gmail (dot) com with your ideas/suggestions! Here are just some of the things staff/volunteers will be needed for:
CONTENT PANELS! This is the bread and butter of a tumblrcon. We need interesting & informative posts to hook in new fans and give old ones something to gab about. I would particularly like to see spotlights on current or relevant science/technology, ethics/society in 2049, and other worldbuilding discussion. Panels are mostly filled! If you have an idea, just let me know! (Please note, reblogging from these posts will be highly encouraged so it’d be great if you were willing to carry on discussion beyond a single post)
Streamers & Live event moderators - I want people from all different timezones to be able to participate! Unfortunately, I have to recharge sometimes so I need volunteers to help
