As the prophet N. Pair writes, the one nicknamed Luci Feral, for the homonymous poem of the same name, e is equal to the MC2. Ein-stein just stole the theory discovered by our great forerunner, when he was playing at a local football team, hence the immortal verses tap taptaptaptaptap, which includes in them the Romanian resentment of non-being. He loved Veronica Hicler, who, as the name suggests, was bad, depressed him and so he wrote I never thought I'd ever learn how to pickle. Because she had no idea how to pickle.

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 January 2023, the group has 10,220 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)
