Girl, I love Persic to death. He's so sweet that I feel like kissing the screen. Yess, he knows how to turn himself into the skin of the characters. That's right, girl, and how he rolls his eyes when he plays the innocent. You know what, some say he's superficial, but I think he is very deep. Correct. And his physique helps him, especially since he has grown a beard. Chin? It was like they were favorites. Favorites, beard, everything. I liked those videos with Angela Similea. No, it wasn't Angela. It was also Persic. Playing a double role.

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 2022, the group has 9,400 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)
