* A surprisingly grim example comes from ''Literature/TheWolfhound'' series in form of a quirk of venn (FantasyCounterpart to slavic tribes) culture - they believe that a shared conversation binds just as strongly as a shared meal. If a male venn (including the titular hero) is giving you this trope, or the SilentTreatment, it means he's seriously considering killing you.
