As easy as saying hello. By my clients don't seem to understand. I told them: I gathered so much money that I have nothing to spend them on. I can buy anything that crosses my mind, and a hundred years will not be enough to spend it all. The procedure remains the same. You send me the documents through the usual methods, I organize myself, start doing the work and I solve your problem, competently, with maximum professionalism. So, not much has changed. It's just that I'm doing volunteering work now. I will slay your enemies for free.

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 March 2022, the group has 8,050 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)
