@gcupc @Nezchan Not familiar with that one, but yeah, quince pie is good!

Honestly if you think you're making someone uncomfortable you should always just straight-up apologize immediately. Don't try and play it off as a joke. Don't insist that they lighten up. Just walk it back, and don't do it again. Better to have too much concern for others than too little.

"Because we will bring the world back from the brink."
"How? How can you still have hope?"
"Otherwise this would be the worst timeline."
