Operation Raven sign-up

This is the official sign-up post for Operation Raven (or Operaven, if you prefer), in which your job is to read aloud a line or two of Poe's "The Raven." All are encouraged to join. Here's how it will work:

1. Leave a comment here if you want to participate. Sign-up period ends in two weeks, October 12.

2. Shortly after Oct. 12, having counted up how many people are signed up, I will assign your lines to you.

3. You record yourself speaking the lines and post them as a LJ voice post, or email the sound file to me if you're more tech-savvy. The latter is the preferred method! They sound much clearer that way. I know .wav, .aiff, and .mp3 files will work with my software, and conversion of other types might be possible. We can try.

4. If choosing the voice-post option, let me know by email or LJ comment that you have posted it. I might miss it otherwise.

5. All accents and ages welcome, and indeed encouraged. Please sign up, and draft friends and family into it as well!

Your appointed lines have arrived! They are:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore


It may help you to read over the full stanza in which your lines are contained, to get a feel for the rhythm and meaning. The full text of "The Raven" is here.

Please record in .mp3, .aiff, or .wav format and email the file(s) to me (my ladyirony earthlink address); or do it as a voice post, then comment here to point me to the post. You have till October 29, so I can splice them together and have the file ready by Halloween. I'll be listing everyone's LJ names (or whichever names they prefer, for those not on LJ) along with their lines so we can place voices to names as we listen.

Thank you for joining in!

Your appointed lines have arrived! They are:

(Two sets, one for each of you)

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

" 'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door;
Only this, and nothing more."

(Two sets; one for each of you)

Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow, sorrow for the lost Lenore

Your appointed lines have arrived! They are:

(Four sets, to split among you)

That I scarce was sure I heard you." Here I opened wide the door;---
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;

But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word,

Lenore?, This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word,
"Lenore!" Merely this, and nothing more.

(Two sets, one for each of you)

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, something louder than before,

"Surely," said I, "surely, that is something at my window lattice.
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore."


("Thereat"? That's a poetry word if ever I saw one.)
