Almost Human Tweetout/Livestream Convert-a-Friend Giveaway!
Many of you are aware of the #SaveAlmostHuman tweetouts we have every Monday night. Starting the Monday after next (since next Monday is a holiday in the US), I will be streaming one episode a week during tweetouts (at THIS LIVESTREAM), and encourage people to livetweet as we watch together.
For each new person that you “bring” to the livestream, you will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of the DVD release of AH. If you’ve already bought it (and I do urge you to go buy it now, it’s 21% off at the moment!) and you win, then you can either choose one of the friends you got to watch the show to get it instead or give it to someone else.
- You must be 18 years or older to win (and of course willing to provide me w/ a shipping address)
- You do NOT have to live in the US.
- You must get at least ONE friend or follower to watch an episode to be eligible (or if you’re a new person yourself, that’s great too). This of course is kind of by the honor code bc I can’t really verify they’ve never seen it before or are actually watching.
- You get one entry for every week that you tweet something for the episode I’m streaming that week & TWO entries for every new person you get to join in. One of your tweets must say “@WarnerBrosEnt @bad_robot @AHFanCon Watching (name of episode) now! #SaveAlmostHuman” to get credit for the weekly entry. To get credit for your new person, tweet "@WarnerBrosEnt @bad_robot @AHFanCon I got my (friend/relation+first name/twitter handle if they have one) to watch Almost Human with me! #SaveAlmostHuman"
- You don’t actually have to watch MY stream; I know streams don’t work great for everyone, so if you have your own copies feel free to just watch it at the same time and tweet.
- Winner will be drawn after the streaming of the finale. So yes, it will be a long entry period, but these DVDs would make the perfect Christmas gift, don’t you think??
Reminder: Letter campaign to the WB & petition still ongoing
Hey guys! I have quite a few followers who have NEVER watched Almost Human, despite all the blogging about it that I do! Well, starting next Monday is your chance to see the show streamed week to week and I really hope you will come out! For one, it’s a really great show and I promise it’s worth your time; two, it would make me sooooooooooo happy!
I think I’ve decided to stream in production rather than air order, even though some changes were made post-production to make the show fit FOX’s stupid-ass decision to change the episode order. Anyway, please, please give it a try! Our tiny fandom is still fighting to get some kind of continuation, be it a movie, mini-series, web series, etc., and we need all the help we can get. But I know no one cares about stuff they haven’t seen before so I’m begging you to give this a shot! It has diversity, examines social issues, an intriguing world, and a stellar mix of comedy and drama. Yeah it hurts that Fox cancelled, but we’re not giving up because Fox doesn’t even own it, WB does. And would I un-watch those 13 episodes, knowing that is would be cancelled? Heck no! It’s worth it, it really is.
i know i’ve been mostly blogging in the flesh lately, but this is a really good series too and it actually got cancelled, which was very distressing, but if we get enough attention we might be able to get someone else to pick it up!
for those of you not familiar with it, almost human is an episodic sci-fi cop show where human detectives are paired with a robot partner. john kennex, the main character, lost his leg and was in a coma after a failed raid that killed his entire team, and now that he’s back on the force he has a lot of emotional trauma that leads him to be paired with dorian, who is from a decommissioned line of androids that were programmed to be as close to human as possible, which stands in stark contrast to the emotionless mxs (also he’s really adorable). the show explores what it means to be “human” and how social issues and expectations impact and motivate crime. the secondary characters are diverse and interesting, and you’ll wish they’d gotten more screentime and focus. it was a great show and i am so mad it got cancelled. please consider checking it out!
((i had this piece of meta by kedreeva in mind while drawing this, but i also picture them talking about their scars sometime as an emotional catharsis? also yes anatomy is something i still to work on))
You’re still you, dead or alive.
individual pics from the gif i submitted to the #saveintheflesh challenge
outfit episodes in the captions (they probably appeared more than once but i only screenshotted those episodes so eh they were really low quality anyway so these are probably highly inaccurate)
also i’m gonna be really annoying and promo the in the flesh mini bang, which y’all should sign up for!

yeah so this is the thing i was working on earlier
What is this?
A mini bang challenge is a collaborative project modeled after the big bang challenge. In a big bang, authors produce fics (generally 10000+ words) and are paired with an artist who then creates something (not limited to drawings!) to go along with the fic. Because our fandom is relatively new, I thought a lower word limit (5000 words) might allow more people to participate, hence “mini” bang.
We all know In the Flesh has not yet been renewed for a third series, so this would be one way to show our love and support for the programme (although hopefully by the time the challenge finishes we will already have new episodes!).
Authors may sign up for one individual fic and one collaborative fic with a co-author. You may sign up as both an author and an artist, but you may not create art for your own story. Beta readers may choose to participate in the challenge too or beta only. Read the full rules here.
When is this happening?
The tentative schedule can be found here. As you can see, you have plenty of time to work, so don’t be afraid to challenge yourself!
There is also a Siren-only big bang (unaffiliated), if you’d like to take a look at that too. Even if you can’t/don’t want to participate, it would be absolutely wonderful if you could reblog this to spread the word!
bbcthree bbcamerica maybe i drew this entire thing just for the last line, maybe it’s none of your business
also i drew the last three panels (not that the last panel has any actual drawing) like a month after the rest so that’s why they look different i’d like to think rick was actually kinda sweet and cheesy when they were alone and there wasn’t anyone he had to prove himself to gdi bill you asshole
text transcribed in the captions in case you can’t read my terrible handwriting. i based rick’s hairstyle on the painting in kieren’s room.
mabel’s sweaters challenge day 1: that light-up sweater from the opening
basically i’m gonna sporadically draw characters in mabel’s sweaters because her sweaters are the cutest and the last time i checked there were like 90 different ones
(i’ve tagged this with #gif, #flashing gif, and #epilepsy warning but please let me know if there’s an additional tag you’d like me to use and i’ll keep it in mind in the future)
