Juliet is an obedient transsexual, and Romeo is a gay android in a woman's body. Both of them underwent surgery. Obviously, the families did not agree with the marriage, but the political correctness softened them. Especially since Romeo's father was black too and was forgiven for the #metoo assault on Juliet's mother, a Jewish vaxer. Scandals after scandals. Even more, her brother, Tybor, committed suicide by holding Mercu, his boyfriend, while they were driving in a trabant.

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 February 2022, the group has 7,950 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)
