What exactly is flash fiction?

As far as I know, flash fiction are really short/brief stories. I think they are technically 1000 words or less, but I usually see them under 700 or under 500 words.

[Firearris] 10:45 pm: askes the guard for the weasel!
[Griffinkeeper] 10:45 pm: The guard gives Firearris the Weasel.
[Firearris] 10:46 pm: aquires the weasel and renames it "Cat"

Take that, Lumi.

Ans sometimes you can see flash fiction in the 100-250 words range also! ^^
Pretending in words was too tentative, too vulnerable, too embarrassing to let anyone know.
