Author's Note

Hi guys! I really enjoyed writing this. So much so that, even after having been gone for months, I came back to it. That's really saying something. No, seriously. I've only ever done that with the novel series I'm writing. This is a big deal.

Before I go on, I'd like to give a shout out to violaqu33n again for being my glorious beta for a few of the chapters. Also for being the one who got me off my behind and got me to start writing this again.

Also, thank you to all reviewers! You're why I post: because I love feedback. Thank you so much for your love and patience! You're amazing!

Now. There are a few things about this story that might interest you.

First, the psycho woman. Who is she? You may be asking why the story's over and we still don't know who the heck she is. That's the fun of it. Because in my universe, there will always be this mystery psycho woman in the back of Michael's mind. And I don't know about you, but I like that.


I don't know how many of you are like me and try to look up all the things Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell and Sharon Gless have been in. Jeffrey Donovan was in this amazing TV show on USA that lasted for a single season and should've lasted longer. It was called "Touching Evil." It was because of this show that this story came into being.

If you haven't seen this show, do. It's only a season so it won't take up too much of your time. The entire series is on youtube for your convenience. Enjoy. I did.

Now, digging deeper into how this show inspired "Three." In the Pilot we meet my favorite character: Cyril. (Who, comes to think of it, sort of reminds me of Spencer from Codes and Signals.) He has this monologue about the number three and how it's everywhere. I couldn't help but notice every time three showed up in the rest of the series. I don't know if it was on purpose or not, but it sure as heck freaked me out. In fact, the whole show freaked me out and I wish so badly that they had had more time to delve into the questions it presented.

After being slightly disturbed by how many threes there were in the show, I started to notice how many threes there are in real life. And here's the real kicker: three's my favorite number. Just look around (if you haven't started already)! It starts to get rather creepy.

Also, just for the fun of it, the list of people the psycho kidnapped? Every single one of those names, including Samantha and Lily, were taken from "Touching Evil." Even David. Jeffrey Donovan's character's name is David Creegan. Creegan's partner is Susan Branca.

One last tidbit that doesn't have to do with "Touching Evil":

The psycho woman? She's me. She's me if I ever went off the deep end.
