Where were they supposed to lead, Dorel? Well to Rome. Yes? What else does it say?A chick in the graphical kitty. Ancient vestiges to shit at every worm. The Colossemum, Tragic's Colon, the Omen Decorum, the Trendy Fountain, and many strutters. Muses, gallerys and coercion enters. Tradtianalbreastaurants. 7 knight's flogging, four bar cartel with breakfast secluded. Half bored on command. Plain thickets. All for twotowns and wine hundred. Well, Dorel, go ahead and fix these ten thousand flyers if you still can. Capeesh?

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In June 2021, the group has 6.650 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
