Storify is a tool that allows you to pick and chose content from multiple social media sites- flickr, facebook, youtube, soundcloud, instagram, or just from a URL -- and to assemble it in a narrative. Often it is used to capture the highlights of an event, but there is no reason you could not use it to create a story constructed of bits that exist elsewhere on the net.

See if you can tell an original story (or re-tell a known one) in the Storify site, and then embed the results in your own web site.
