That's what she wanted to become, and she did it. She received a scholarship from one of the most prestigious architecture schools in Switzerland and had the great Snozzi, Botta and Zumthor as mentors. She won the competition for the modernization of the University Square, but she gave up on the collaboration with the city hall officials as she wouldn't allow their brutal interference in the project. Now she modernizes major cities in France. Please don't show her this text. She doesn't like being praised by her father.

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 2022, the group has 9,250 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)
