    We know that Holmes and Watson were spending time on the Cornish coast during DEVI as a rest-cure for Holmes. We also know that it was about this time that Holmes finally broke his cocaine addiction. Why did Holmes finally agree to put away the cocaine, and what were the events leading up to that decision?

    Summary

    他漂泊了两年,身心俱疲。

    夏洛克快要接受自己可能再也回不到伦敦和约翰身边这件事了,但只是快要,也有像今天晚上这样的时候,他沉溺于自己脆弱的情感之中,想想两人曾经分享的公寓里温暖的气息,想想壁炉里噼里啪啦作响的火焰,想想挂在约翰唇边的笑容,想想放在膝盖上吃了一半的中餐外卖。这些回忆让他痛苦,更让他难过的,则是自己可能再也回不到过去了。

    Summary

    He has been on the road for two years, and he is exhausted.

    He’s almost accepted that he will never see London (John) again—almost. But then there are nights like tonight, where he is weak, and all he can think of is the warmth of the flat they once shared, the crackle of the fire in the hearth, the teasing smile playing at the corner of John’s lips, the boxes of half-eaten Chinese takeaway balanced precariously in their laps. He aches at the memory of it, at the realisation that it is something he may never experience again.

    Summary

    August 3, 1891

    My Lord,

    Enclosed please find your advance payment for the Cornwall job. It pains me to be unable to provide anything short of complete satisfaction to any client, let alone one as illustrious and as important to the firm as your lordship. In my defense, let me humbly note that I did urge you against this scheme when you first proposed it. My late brother and I have shared many things, but his obsession with achieving the personal destruction of Mr. Sherlock Holmes has never been one of them.
    *****
    Professor Moriarty's younger brother Andrew explains to a client why he will be unable to complete an important commission.

    This story, "Contra Mundum," "Tempus Fugit," and "What the Brandy's For" all narrate the same events, from different points of view. It doesn't really matter which order you read them in, but the events take place shortly after "A Close Shave."

    Summary

    Dear Mycroft,

    Please do not begin mentally lecturing me about the danger of writing to you through the post. It became crystal clear earlier this morning that at least one of my enemies now knows exactly where I am. I therefore see no added danger in writing to you at your rooms, where I know your mail will not be handled by anyone else before it reaches you. Watson tells me you deduced my continued survival weeks ago. He has also suggested you might like to have written confirmation. I am in fact alive. There are also a few other points on which I should like to enlighten you.
    ****
    Sherlock is getting very tired of being a fugitive, and would like a little help from his older brother.

    This story, "Tempus Fugit," "The Corwnall Job," and "What the Brandy's For" all narrate the same events, from different points of view. It doesn't really matter what order you read them in. All of them take place shortly after "A Close Shave."

    Summary

    A modern retelling of a scene from "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot."

    Summary

    "Let me see. What can I give you?” She tilted his head back so she could look into his eyes. “You mislike your feelings yet you are ruled by them - chemical impulses, is it? And you like to think yourself other, different from ordinary mortals.” She smiled, small and satisfied, to herself. “Yes. Yes, I can give you that.”

    Solving the murder of Brenda Tregennis wasn't what John had in mind when he suggested that Sherlock needed a holiday in the country. There weren't supposed to be chases by moonlight, faerie curses, or all these...wriggly things...

    "When you pulled me out of the Thames and saved my life."

    Summary

    A holiday in Cornwall was, of course, never going to just be a holiday in Cornwall since Sherlock Holmes was involved, even if he was supposed to be convalescing. The terrifying murder shouldn't even have been a surprise to John and Alexa.

    A reworking of "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot" in the Miss Holmes universe.

    Sherlock und John suchen Erholung an der Küste von Cornwall, als sie plötzlich, selbst dort in dieser Traumlandschaft, direkt vor ihrer Haustür mit einem Problem konfrontiert werden, das größer, erregender und unendlich viel rätselhafter ist als all jene, die sie aus London fortgetrieben haben.
