Today marks the 119th Independence Day of the Philippines. Aside from the Filipino people raising their flags, it is also the time wherein the hashtag #RP612fic is trending on social media platform, Twitter. If you haven’t read my post last year,  according to Wikipedia, #RP612fic is an alternative history storytelling event held in celebration of Philippine Independence Day every June 12, in which Filipino writers and other artists use Twitter to post tweet-length flash fiction.

The movement was started by Philippine Alternative Mythology writer Paolo Chikiamco in 2009. It is built around the #RP612fic hashtag, which is a reference to Philippine Independence day. RP stands for “Republic of the Philippines”; 612 refers to the date, June 12; and “fic” is simply short for Fiction.
