Yes, man, swears. I make and sell them. But not the cheap kind for por people, as any jerk would know to swear. Mine are unique and personalized for each person. If you're two meters tall, you can't swear: you motherfucker snowdrop, if you have your Ascendant in Pisces: I piss on your ice shelf is not going to work. Some kind of mantras cuz I'm tired of fucking on and off, I'm sick of it. I don't sell them expensively, because I hope for a better and more colorful world, for Fucks sake. I have to let you now, the Pope is calling me. He might be tired of that one with g-od bless-you with that blue beard.

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 August 2021, the group has 7.000 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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
