A Love Letter to Our Fans

About 12 years ago, I helped start up a new website called NCISLA Magazine.   I also helped design pseudo covers with a talented graphic artist, SweetLu (Lindy) for each character to promote the new site.  We had some fun teasing a bit of fanciful content articles but for the most part my interest was in writing about the scraggly blond hair, blue eyed detective and I wanted to write mainly feature articles totally around this mesmerizing character, LAPD Detective Marty A. Deeks.  The site is long gone but from it blossomed wikiDeeks.  At that time, I was fortunate enough to meet up with a group of fellow Deeks lovers at a fan convention for the show and we decided that enough was enough.  We wanted to focus on creating a site that was all Deeks, all the time.  In the past 10 plus years, I’ve had the pleasure to work with over 25 contributors to the site and we have created what I felt was the ultimate tribute to one of the best characters on TV in the last 14 years.  We knew that if we build the website…. the fans would come, and they did.  You did!  This love letter is to thank you for your dedication to the site and to celebrate Marty Deeks!

It’s been an incredible run and I wanted to thank all of you who have come every week after every episode to comment and like all our content.  We couldn’t have done it without you, and we wanted you to know that we always appreciated your support and loyalty.

Now here’s the good news.  We will be keeping wikiDeeks up and running!  Not only do we want to preserve all the great content we have created over the years, but we also want to support Eric Christian Olsen as he moves forward in his career as well.  Whether it is future acting assignments or work with his production company, Cloud Nine, we will continue to help promote him and all his future endeavors.  We hope to continue to attract new fans and keep all our dedicated fans as well.  And who knows, maybe we will hear from Mr. Deeks again in the future.  You never know!  We want to be front and center again if this should happen!  Our current fan fiction writers will also be dropping by to continue to contribute to the site too, so you won’t want to miss any future Deeks or Densi stories.

We hope that you will continue to come back to the site and follow us on Instagram to find out about future Deeks and Eric Christian Olsen projects that will be forth coming.  Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  The show may be over, but the memories will continue with all the work we have stored on the site.  We hope you keep dropping by and continue to enjoy the content.  It’s been a great 14 years and we will miss these wonderful characters and of course, the show…. especially Deeks.  #blessed.  Thank you.

  3. Long ago memories. So much fun. Meeting you in LA, Karen too, changed the next twelve years of my life into a love for writing and for watching the development of such a great character. Deeks. So hard to see him fade into the sunset of this great series. It was such a pleasure to work with you, Di, and Karen and Colleen and all the other great contributors. Tess. Randy. Brenda, and so many others through the years. We did good. Still remember our collaboration on serial fan fiction pieces. What a trip it has been. Look forward to a few more contributions as soon as I get over the final wrap.

    My thanks to all of you who founded and kept this site going, especially you, Diane, and Lindy and Karen—so happy to hear that it is going to continue! I found Deeks, and sought out wikiDeeks, seven seasons or so into the run of the show, and I was so glad that I did. I suspect we all know that desire to spend more time with a character than the 42 minutes we get once a week, and fan sites and fan fiction have long been the ways to meet that desire. This particular fan site has been creative and unique in allowing us to contribute in so many different ways, and to enjoy one another’s contributions. I’ve only been involved in one other fandom (fell in love with a character there, too), but that experience taught me to appreciate the tone of this site, and the people on it. It’s always felt supportive and friendly, and encouraging, and that starts at the top. So, thank you for creating such a great space, and giving all of us a place to celebrate a great character.

    Thank you so so much for all the work you have put in to create and to maintain this site that holds such high standard. It is a pure joy visiting it. You really made my day today, in the middle of all the sadness of loosing this wonderful show, when I learned that you will continue to keep this site going. That is absolutely fantastic.

    Thank u so very much for keeping this website going. I have a feeling ECO might not be completely done with Deeks just like llcool j not finished with Sam. We shall see… Thank you to all the wonderfully talented writers who write such great fanfiction.

  8. Now I have finished doing my happy dance, I need to tell you how pleased I am that wikiDeeks is continuing. I live in the UK and there was so much I didn’t quite understand, wikiDeeks was there. The ideas and views of all the commenters has always been fascinating. As much as I enjoyed the show, wikiDeeks made it even better. Diane, you were so kind and pointed me in the right direction when I first had a go at fanfiction.

    I’m keen to know where ECO’s career takes him, I’d like to see him in another roll.

    Happy Days.

    Thank you and all the contributers at wikiDeeks. I have loved all of the content and will continue to support your efforts. You are right Marty Deeks is one of the greatest fictional characters invented and portrayed. The writers and Eric Christian Olsen achieved something very special and unique. Kudos to them and you for promoting and expanding the visibility of this marvelous man!
