Dial M for Elastic

An ongoing story by Fellatio Nelson. Like some of his earlier efforts, it is set in a fictionalised late Victorian age, featuring numerous terribly English gentlemen.

You can find it here.


Overview

The unknown country of Thandistan (or Thandalistan), among the mountains between China, Nepal and Bhutan, is the world's largest source of elastic. The British wish to obtain Thandalistan as a protectorate in order to use this elastic to make elastic redcoat uniforms against which foreign bullets will simply bounce off. Yet Thandalistan conceals many dark secrets…
