We are live, rerunning and recording. I want to thank the billions of fans from Romania who have been watching us for hundreds of years. A show about couples and for couples. Don't forget to answer the question on the screen via SMS so that you can win an all-inclusive trip to Techirghiol. Today, on Co-Mother-In-Law for Godfather' (Cuscră pentru Nașu') show, we have Lenți and Gigi from Băicoi as guests. Good evening, how are you feeling on our set? Oh, let's interrupt the program for a short commercial break. Hey, where's Lenți?

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 September 2021, the group has 7.150 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)
