Hell with any literary attempt. The minute I write something related to dualism, a bunch a female churchgoers are at my throat. They claim that I have a down on God. I think, therefore I am as my own bad demiurge who gets his purity aroused with the insignificance's twisted extensions of the uncertain ego. For this reason, I'll have to ask all the prudes and puritans on watch to stop flashing their judgment - making organs in front of my disgusting lyric dick. Life's a bitch and I might as well stick it one day.

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 October 2021, the group has 7.275 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)
