The Fiction of Relationship: 1st Assignment

Here is the my text written for the first assignment of The Fiction of Relationship MOOC. The ojective was to explain, how do I understand the title of the course.

The first association that appeared in my mind, when I started to think about meaning of “Fiction of the Relationship” was The Shobies’ Story, a short story by Ursula K. Le Guin. A group of people tries to use new method of space travel, but instead of move to another star they move into splitted reality. They can’t agree on what they perceive, they lost connection to each other’s reality. And what do they do? They sit around the campfire and tell the stories to each other, each person tells about own version of reality. And through this stories (through fiction) they are able to re-establish their connection (their relationship). So Fiction of the Relationship can be seen as understanding others via telling stories to another people or telling stories together. Also, relationships are often represented as stories…
