Even when you're doomed to a young and tragic death, there's still room to feel good after all.
* In the opening hours of the game, four of the game's Activism Club members come across each other on the beach. After the four of them slowly get their bearings, they express joy upon meeting up. Brendan Wallace in particular already had an encounter with [[DarkActionGirl Clio Gabriella]], while Sarah Xu, Dutchy Ayers, and Roland Hayes are devastated. So, it's nice to see them genuinely happy to see each other. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it doesn't last; an encounter with Kris Hartmann shortly after causes the group to split apart.]]
---> '''Brendan Wallace:'''"SARAH! DUTCHY!" * throws his arms around Sarah after finally finding her* "...you're okay! You're both okay!" Brendan was in agony, his voice cracking, almost unable to cope with not knowing if any of his friends were alive or dead. He still had so many people to find, but he was glad, oh GOD he was glad, that he knew at least some of them were safe.''
** And Sarah's reaction:
---> ''All she could do was throw her arms around his neck, somehow find a way to inhale, and tell him how glad she was to see him. "Augh mate, you have n-NO idea how good it is to s-see you!" It was the first time since she'd woken up over an hour ago that she'd been genuinely happy.''
