All peoples are driven to the point of eating their gods after a time: it's the old greed for a plateful of outer space, that craving for darkness, the lust to feel what it does to you when your teeth meet in divinity, in the flesh, when you swallow it down and you can see with its own cold eyes, look out through murder.
Margaret Atwood, from Selected Poems II: 1976 - 1986

This is your hand, these are my hands, this is the world, which is round but not flat and has more colors than we can see.
It begins, it has an end, this is what you will come back to, this is your hand.
— Margaret Atwood, from “You Begin”

I’m not sure which is worse: intense feeling, or the absence of it.

But we’ve lost the knack;
also there’s other music.
All we hear in the wind’s plainsong
is the wind.

Though our feastfires have faded to candles
we’re hooked on the same old gods,
much diminished.
They no longer talk to us
but that’s okay:
we do enough talking.
Margaret Atwood, Dearly

“Whose dream is this, I would like to know:
is this a manufactured
hallucination, a cynical fiction, a lure
for export only?”

If it's a story I'm telling, then I have control over the ending... But if it's a story, even in my head, I must be telling it to someone. You don't tell a story only to yourself. There's always someone else. Even when there is no one.
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

And it was true, the brass pendulum swinging back and forth did look like a tongue, licking the lips of an invisible mouth. Eating up time.

We get June's thoughts periodically throughout each episode, but what was Nick thinking? This is going to be a series where I take key Nick/June moments from the series and imagine what they would sound like with Nick as the Narrator.
Please go show some love to my very first bit of writing on Ao3!
Blessed be the fruit loops, Bitches x
