"Nevermore"

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this and nothing more.


Fond of Poetry? You’ve come to the right place!

Let’s enjoy making our way through “The Raven” together to kick off the start of spooky season. Each week there will be Four Tasks posted attached to a new section of Edgar Allan Poe's famous piece.

QUESTIONS may be posted below or directed to me privately

Questions might include:

How late can I start participating?
You may join in at anytime, however everything is due by Monday October 31st at 11:59pm (HOL time).

What if I can't (or don't want to) do a Task?
If accomplishing parts of this activity becomes impractical or undesirable for any reason, please feel more than encouraged to ask for an alternative if one hasn't been provided, suggest something, or skip that section altogether. Our goal is to have fun! We simply wish to support your most enjoyable experience.

How do I post Graphics?
A few popular Image Hosting sites are Postimage, Imgur, and Imgbb where you can upload your work, then receive a link toward sharing elsewhere. The “BBCode” to attach on Roost forum submissions (which can be accomplished automatically for you by the click of a button from options at the top of your editing page) is [*img][*/img] with url in the middle (i.e. [*img]link[*/img]) — NOTE: You would remove the asterisks (*) in order for this code to be successful. They’re added here to display the example effectively. Graphics must be kept within 600x600px.

Can I come and go as I please?
Absolutely! There are no rules against passing over anything you're not interested in, or doing tasks out of order. No pressure at all.

Do I have to post submissions to the forums?
While we love seeing people posting/interact together should that be their preference, if you would feel more comfortable turning in some or all of your work via private message where prompted otherwise, that's perfectly fine!

Have an offendingly ominous time, m’dears, >:}
