Samovar and pretensions. Those of classy people with tea at 5 O'clock. Sansa and Podrick Pyne. Both are shy, but left in search of a story. Socks and feet. One into the other. Up to the knees or even higher, with glue or garters. Juice and cakes. The peak of the '80s of the book with stupid questions. Scales and fish. They crucially need each other. Sadistic and prudish. The perfect ratio of an erection without measure. Sigh and cry. The drama of the messed-up face. Neither salted nor peppered. A gentleman with a member of embarrassing size.

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 April 2023, the group has 11,000 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, Luchian Abel, and Vlad Mușat. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
