We Sent Over 1,000 Decks Of Cards To The Producers Of 'Deception' So That It Comes Back On Air

Here's to all the fans who are hoping that we were just deceived when ABC cancelled Deception.

We Sent Over 1,000 Decks Of Cards To The Producers Of 'Deception' So That It Comes Back On Air

I started watching "Deception" because my Mom introduced me to it. I faintly remember seeing a commercial before my Mom mentioned it and being intrigued, but the commercial didn't stick.

Once I started watching though, I was hooked. This show has magic, crime, action, comedy, intrigue, mystery and it's family friendly! The cast is great and the plot-line so far has been amazing!

But, sadly, barely into it's first season, we find out that "Deception" has been canceled. You imagine my disappointment. And to make matters worse, they left us with a cliffhanger. So not only has it ended, but we, the fans, are now left with so many unanswered questions.

So like any self respecting fans, we took to twitter. We have been lighting up twitter with tweets since the last episode aired in May.

We've gotten together as fans (aka: Deceptioners) and raised money to send 1,056 decks of cards to Ben Sherwood and Disney-ABC Television Group with the message #SaveDeception.

We've thought about and acted on so many different ways to get the word out there that this is a show worth saving. We've watched and re-watched episodes of "Deception". We've had tweet parties and are currently planning to have more. We are voting for "Deception" in the TV Scoop Awards. We are flooding ABC's twitter with tweets. I have tweeted and retweeted so many #Deception posts, it's crazy.

Fan art has been created, YouTube videos are all over the place, FanFiction has even been written, AND we've reached over 16,000 signatures on a petition to renew "Deception"!

Fans are sending letters, decks of cards, coins, anything that we can think of to open ABC's eyes and get our show back.

I'm even working on some cards of my own to send.

It is our hope that ABC or any other networks will see just how much this show is loved and continue the story from where we left off. As well as that they'll see how much potential this show has and the strength of the fan-base that has been created.

We want "Deception" to be renewed because we recognize the high quality of the show, the interest that this show has created, and the need for more shows like this.

On that note, so many good crime shows have been cancelled, ended, or are just dying.

Take "NCIS" for example. I loved "NCIS", but when DiNozzo left, I feel like the show started to die. Now Abby is leaving, so who knows how much longer it will last. "Burn Notice" ended back in 2013, but boy was that a good show.

"The Mentalist" also ended. That was a solid law enforcement/consultant show. "White Collar" ended. I loved that show. "Castle" is no more... *sad sigh*

"Bones" ended and the spin off "The Finder" didn't last long.

So many good shows are gone and now there is just this great big space left open for shows like "Deception". I, along with all the other fans, really hope that ABC or other networks won't squander the opportunity that "Deception" presents them with.

We hope that they will make the choice to continue "Deception" and give it the chance it deserves!

If you want to aid in the fight for "Deception", please go follow @DeceptionABC, @RenewDeception, @renewdeceptionn, and @Save_Deception_ on twitter! You can also follow "Deception" on Facebook!

Also, write letters to Ben Sherwood and go watch "Deception" on ABC!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
