The love story between two soldiers who shared tombs

It all started with a tablet. The dramatist, scenic director and screenwriter Guillem Clua went back to the cemetery of Sighisoara, Romania, when he encountered a tomb where two soldiers, Emil Muler and Xaver Sumer, were buried. "I was surprised because it was the only one where there were two men together," explains Clua, who unpacked the cell phone and photographed the tablet. The image, which shows the tombs covered with snow with that of Emil and Xaver in the foreground, has become viral in the history that accompanies it.

A couple of weeks ago, Clua uploaded the photo to Twitter promising to explain the story of the two soldiers, who fought and died during the First World War. Throughout a thread retitated more than 11,000 times, the playwright was unraveling the impossible love between the two protagonists and the mystery surrounding the fact that they had been buried together. Clua devised a fictional life for the two soldiers: Emil was the son of a wealthy family in the city and had gone to school with Xaver, whom the playwright attributed to Catalan descent and renamed it Xavier Sunyer. The protagonists had "a special relationship" until the respective parents learned each other and did everything possible so they would not be together.

Clua was dosing the deliveries of the story, which dragged thousands of pending users on how to solve everything. The viral impact of the thread of Twitter is undeniable: the playwright has won more than 10,000 followers and even rained on offerings to bring the story of Emil and Xaver to the screen. In fact, Clua published a statement yesterday in which he explained that the story is fictitious. "Only photos of the cemetery are 100% real, but there are still people who do not believe it," says the author. The inspiration approached him while walking through the cemetery and, above all, during the visit to the city's museum. "There all the fictitious elements came to me," says Clua. My intention was to make a thread of 10 tweets, but I was thrilled. As he took so much flight, I prolonged it. "

The story of Emil and Xaver is part of the new narratives that have generated viral phenomena on Twitter on previous occasions. However, Clua was clear that he wanted to move away from the thrillers and the paranormal events that usually accompany these stories. "I did not want to make a Manuel Bartual. I wanted to tell a pretty story and LGBT, "says the playwright, who used the recurring tools of this new way of narrating to give the story of credibility. Thus, the playwright spotted his fictitious research on the characters with black and white photographs, pictures of Sighisoara and gifs. I thought they would realize the use of Photoshop! "Exclaims Clua, who emphasizes that the key to the success of the story is that" people are eager to believe in love. " Although the playwright closed the story on Monday on Twitter, the story of Emil and Xaver does not end there. "It will be more than just a thread in the social network," Clua promises. I want to explain it thoroughly, although I still do not know what format I will do ".
