I've been a Nation's Hawk, Pioneer and later a member of the UTC. I filled in shared journals (especially the ones belonging to my female colleagues). There were line or square model notebooks, filled with more and more intimate questions, for example: Who are you? Which singer/actor do you prefer? What is life/love? Who do you like? Who do you love and why? Inside there were stuck pictures and pressed flowers or drawings on the page. In this hidden way, the girls got to know us better, almost hunting us. Green leaf, basil / You're a flower, a bud? is what I composed D.

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 December 2021, the group has 7.750 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)
