Unique to the web, forums provide some of the most interesting modern myths and horror (think Slenderman). For this assignment, create a Reddit account and create a post about your very own creepy story telling of your encounter with a legend. It can be based on an existing legend/myth or a legend you make up yourself. It can as 'true' as you want it to be, whether it's a creepy story that actually happened to you, or one you make up for this assignment (be creative!). See how the community and the rest of the class reacts to your scary story. For inspiration or examples, see the following two linked examples, or google creepy Reddit stories yourself: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/3xg36j/serious_what_is_the_creepiest_thing_that_has_ever/cy4f6mm/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/LetsNotMeet/comments/rvzaq/the_smiling_man/
